As most of you are aware, we had a crash to forums and were down for over two days a while back. We did have to do an upgrade to the vbulletin software to fix the forums and that has created changes, VB no longer provide the hybrid or threaded forums. There are some issues/changes to the forums we are not able to fix or change. Also note the link address change, please let friends and posters know of the changed link to the forums. For now this is the only link available, https://forums.carm.org/vb5/ but if clicking on forum on carm.org homepage it will now send you to this link. (edited to add https: now working.

Again, we are working through some of the posting and viewing issues to learn how to post with the changes, you will have to check and test the different features, icons that have changed. You may also want to go to profile settings,since many of the notifications, information in profile, also to update/edit your avatar by clicking on avatar space, pull down arrow next to login for user settings.

Edit to add "How to read forums, to make it easier."
Pull down arrow next to login name upper right select profile, or user settings when page opens to profile,select link in tab that says Account. Then select/choose options, go down to Conversation Detail Options, Select Display mode Posts, NOT Activity, that selection of Posts will make the pages of discussions go to last post on last page rather than out of order that happens if you choose activity threads. Then be sure to go to bottom and select SAVE Changes in your profile options. You can then follow discussions by going through the pages, to the last page having latest responses. Then click on the other links Privacy, Notifications, to select viewing options,the forums get easier if you open all the tabs or links in your profile, user settings and select options. To join Super Member, pull down arrow next to login name, select User Settings and then click on tab/link at top that says Subscriptions.

Thank you for your patience and God Bless.

    Have you ever seen this?

    The purpose of my posts are not to cause bicker or division, but to show truth from the scripture for edifying of the soul. It does not matter what we think, it is what God's Word says that matters.

    is that guy considered a real Rabbi?

      He seems to be a Messianic of the Protestant variety. I doubt he's a Jew, and it is likely that any seminarian training he has had was at a Christian seminary rather than a Yeshiva. But I'm just guessing based upon his topic and the way he delivers his sermon.

        What sort of training/process do real Rabbis go through to become one?

          I am not an expert to answer this. This is the sort of question that you would contact a synagogue and ask the rabbi. But to the best of my knowledge, A rabbi is someone who has Semikhah (the leaning of hands, aka Jewish ordination). It requires study in a Yeshivah for 3-6 years depending on the Jewish denomination.The study includes Talmud, Jewish law codes, and case law. It ASSUMES a fluency in the Torah before you even begin.

            No. He is a Messianic and therefore did not get his "rabbinical" training from a legitimate source. Messianics might consider him a rabbi, but no legitimate Jewish source would. He is a Christian minister, pastor, what ever term you would like to use.

              I've see him before, and really didn't think he was. Seems like a shtick.
              There's a Jewish Christian teacher I know of who was going thru Rabbinic training when he became a Christian, and he deliberately does Not represent himself as a Rabbi.
              Even though he's is not a part of Judaism anymore, he seems to respect the position and what goes with it.
              He makes the point that Hebrew proficiency would be one of the first things learned, so its silly for any Messianic rabbis who don't really have that to act as if they do.

              Do you think persons who actually were Rabbi's, and then become Christians, should stop using that designation?

                If they actually were rabbis-there are so many phony stories about fake rabbis becoming Christians put out by Messianics-I think they should stop calling themselves "rabbi". The same way
                a Christian minister who became a Jew should no longer call themselves minister, priest, pastor, or whatever. There are actually quite a few ex Christian clergy that have converted to Judaism
                and not one of them uses their former title. It is no longer appropriate and it is deceptive.
