Christianity and Judaism ABSTRACT The following is going to compare and contrast Christianity and Judaism. Although different in many ways the two are also very similar. For example both religions were founded in Palestine, and believe in one God. On the contrary, when one perishes a Christian will either take a journey to heaven or hell but a Jew’s faith lies in the hands of God. I had a chance to interview a Christian friend from Bethel Christian Fellowship located in Rochester, New York. He gives will share his interpretations and feelings of faith and beliefs and being a young Christian in the inner city and how it is as a young man trying to be a Christian, he is often challenged by his peers, society, and himself. The reading will also show that church is not only a place for worship, but a place that gives back to the community, helping the less fortunate and working with those of other denominations. I want to thank Bethel Christian Fellowship, Pastors Ron and Karen Domina. Bethel is located at 321 East Avenue, Rochester, New York 14604. Bethel’s purpose is to discover God and His purpose for our lives as we study the Bible together.

The first thing that I noticed was the flags, they had flags of every country hanging and to me that was a nice touch. The church had a capacity of 300 and on most days was full. The building had beautiful stained glass windows with pictures of Jesus, Isaiah and, Mary. Places for children to learn the word were present, for those too small to attend regular service and those old enough to understand the importance of religion. As I was entering the facility the outreach group Hope Initiatives, was leaving for a trip to Hill Side Children’s Center, which is a shelter for troubled teenage girls. The group was on their way to deliver toiletries and other bath essentials. It is now time for me to sit with my friend Cuevas; we have long discussed this day and have no anticipated my attendance in this manner. I have some questions for him. The (S) will represent me, Shannon and the (C) will represent my subject for interview Cuevas Walker. “Cuevas, how do you feel about religions in schools? Some fighting to remove it and some are
