No community of faith, including the Messianic movement, is completely immune from the negative influences of opportunism.
The motives of far too many people, across both the Messianic movement and Hebrew Roots, is so that they can have some kind of “edge” via knowledge or information that only “they” know.
What are some of the things that we have to reckon with, which saw interest in either the Messianic movement or Hebrew Roots grow—which are now turning out to be of little substantial value in light of present challenges?
Judah and John discuss the pervasive problem of misinformation in the Messianic movement. Whether it’s laypeople sharing misleading videos from non-credible sources, or Messianic and Hebrew Roots teachers putting out sensational, misleading, or outright false teachings, the Messianic movement is struggling with misinformation in the information age. This leads to the secular world discrediting individuals – subverting their witness – and even discrediting the Messianic movement and our message about the Messiah. How can laypeople and non-experts in the Messianic movement know what’s real and what’s fake, what’s Biblical and what’s opinion? We discuss how to be better, wiser, discerning disciples in the age of misinformation.
