@MonicaCellio: None really. Just English verb like "draw(ing)."

comment What is the interpretation of Genesis 19, 5-8?
@josh waxman: Pardon, but what leads you to believe that their request was anything but a demand to have sexual relations with Lot's guests? If indeed the men of Sedom were asking Lot, "Bring them outside so that we can get to know them, and chat with them, and ask them what they do for a living, and maybe drink some tea, etc.," why does Lot respond with, "My brothers, please do not do evil!" (אַל־נָא אַחַי תָּרֵֽעוּ) as if just talking to people and getting to know them is considered evil...? Christian translation or not, it's spot on. They men of Sedom wanted to have sex with Lot's guests.

comment Are Christians and/or “Messianic Jews” considered Jewish by Jews?
Once a Jew, always a Jew. There's nothing that can change that. Jews who practice Christianity (which is what Messianic Jews are (and by "Messianic Jews," I mean people who are actually Jewish by birth but practice the religion of Christianity) are simply considered to be Jewish apostates by mainstream Judaism. (And, for the record, I am not a Messianic Jew by profession. I am Jewish by birth but refer to myself as a Christian in the context of religious discussions where my beliefs require acknowledgement to others).

comment Is programming against Judaism?
I'd say you "make," not "create." And, I think it's not merely a distinction without a difference.
