Another pointer – just ask any of them if they believe in the Old Testament.
Them: Of course.
You: So you keep Sabbath?
Them: I rest from work in Sabbath; I don’t go to my office. It doesn’t mention anywhere in the Bible anything about 39 prohibitions…
You: Hold on – do you smoke on Saturday?
Him: Yes, I do.
You: So what exactly happened to ?? ????? ?? ??? ????????? ???? ?????

Unfortunately, my friend’s reply to “Jsus loves you” is unsuitable to post here. Given that my friend (like myself) is a guy, I’m sure you can work it out for yourself…December 23, 2012 11:11 pm at 11:11 pm #915124ChortkovParticipant
I once saw a clever summary from R’ Arye Kaplan: A missioniary is like a telephone hotline. Push #1 for 1, Push #2 for 2. If there is nothing programmed for 9 and you push #9, they will just repeat the same thing over and over again. You’ve just got to think outside the box a bit!!
R’ Nissim from London once confronted the missionairy outside Yeshiva and spoke to him for about 1 1/2 hours – politely, and answering questions. He had a TNa”CH with him, and went through the Pesukim and proved the poor fellow wrong each time.
Once he pointed out – this is quite an important point – ???? does NOT neccesarily mean the Messiah – it means the Annointed One, and can refer to anyone from Ahron HaKohen to Dovid Hamelech. Anybody can be called the Annointed one of God without being the Messiah. He then proved this from many places, leaving most of the proofs the missionairy had worthless.December 23, 2012 11:49 pm at 11:49 pm #915125Menachem MelamedParticipant
Unless you have the training to deal with missionaries, speak Yiddish or Hebrew and make believe you don’t know what they are talking about.
Or tell them that you believe in G-d, why don’t they teach people to believe in G-d. Then walk away and refuse to let them “engage you” in conversation.December 24, 2012 11:06 pm at 11:06 pm #915126ToiParticipant

yekke2: Koresh is called moshiach too in Yeshaya 45:1. Also moshiach means “anointed one” not “Anointed One”.
