I’m not that familiar (or interested) in the Hebrew roots movement, but in the past month or so I’ve gotten several emails about it and its ideas. I’m presuming that not everyone associated with the movement thinks as poorly or oddly as the folks I’ve been directed to for commentary on their teachings. At least I hope that’s the case. If anyone can tell me what drives this bunch, feel free.
Anyway, a lot of the consternation has been about Rob Skiba and Russ Houck and their Christian (?) or Hebrew (?) or Pagan (?) denial of Trinitarianism. Others have commented on him at length, so I’m directing readers to that work. Cris Putnam has put a good deal of effort into this movement, as has Natalina at the Extraordinary Intelligence blog. The arguments by the Hebrew roots writers are deeply flawed and propelled by non sequiturs. My impression is that the arguments are old and deeply flawed, almost as though the point is “hey, look at us over here – we can argue as poorly about Christology as the Zeitgeist folks.”
