I wasn’t interested in joining a different religion. I was happy being Jewish and was taught that if I believed in Jesus Christ, I would be breaking the first of the Ten Commandments which states, “You shall have no other Gods before me.” Throughout my travels in the southern and Midwestern U.S., I was witnessed to over and over. I became uncomfortable with others trying to convert me. However, there were my close friends on the tour who also said they were Christians. I would see them pray and sing songs before a performance. Their extreme unselfishness and love for others made me very jealous about their God. Little did I know that they were in fact worshipping my God, the God of Israel.
I wanted what they had. Just not with their foreign God, but my God. In frustration, I wrote home to my rabbi and asked him questions about having a personal relationship with God. His response was very unsatisfying and dismissive. The Gideons International
