Are Christians and Jews blinded from the truth?


I am from the South and like everyone else down here, 90% of us anyway, I have always gone to a Baptist church. About 10 years back I started studying the bible, not just reading it but studying everything I read.

    We also have to remember that "Religion" is a creation of men. Judaism didn't exist until the Sanhedrin or the Pharisees. The Pharisees were basically academics that studied the work of the prophets and the scriptures after Malachi(300 yr silence).

    I say that I agree and vote up this answer. God does not put up fences men do. God gives us knowledge and gives us the opportunity to use it or cage it. I pray that I don't allow my witness to get caged by fear and prejudice further than it is.
