How Do You Know If You a Part of Messianic Judaism?

The disparity of views on this issue has left my head spinning:

  • We've got the UMJC saying that One Law is its own movement, separate from Messianic Judaism (LINK).  
  • We've got Gene echoing the UMJC, saying that there's no way that One Law can be considered a branch of Messianic Judaism.
  • Yet most independent or affiliated One-Law Believers consider themselves to belong to Messianic Judaism and the Messianic Jewish Movement (even if they don't feel accepted by segments of the Messianic Jewish Community).

How are people making such determinations?  For example, how does Gene determine that One-Law is not part of Messianic Judaism?  And who has the right to act as judge on this issue and decree that One-Law is not a part of Messianic Judaism?

  1. The answer is simple, Gene is the ticket master, you have to check with him... in fact, if you thought St. Peter was the 'door greeter' into heaven, its actually Gene.

    1. One day, when the Temple is restored, Gene will be waiting at the entrance, he will then proceed to ask me to remove my pants, in order to see that I was circumcised the 8th day, he will then ask for the certificate, and then consider if the circumcision was committed correctly... as you can see, he calls the shots.

    2. No, you won't see me checking out your junk, Zion. The actual test would be your ability to spell Czechoslovakia.
