HEBREW ROOTS IN SHALLOW SOIL

Home Page

Welcome to my blog,
HEBREW ROOTS IN SHALLOW SOIL

The purpose of this blog is to address what I believe is a false ideology, masked as a theology, known as the Hebrew Roots Movement, or HRM.

The Hebrew Roots movement is made up of various churches, groups, and internet societies all of which have varying degrees of beliefs that can be quite illusive and incongruent. As far as I know, there isn’t one centralized theology that these groups adhere to which makes it difficult to have a point of reference from which to discuss, debate or even learn.

The HRM is not a denomination, but more of a religious “genre”. I have found, that although its theology may not be established, there does seem to be a common thread of ideology which binds each member together. Generally, debates with those of the HRM end up being controversies over issues such as “Law vs. Grace”, or “Faith vs. Works”. Even though these are the important issues which will be addressed directly or indirectly, many of these are merely surface arguments.

Since there are probably hundreds of websites that specifically critique the Hebrew Roots Movement in detail, I wanted to go a different route. Instead of being specific, my approach is to address the HRM by breaking down the wide range of beliefs into general categories. My main objective is to go deeper and lay down a foundation of proper and proven Bible theology that I believe will reveal how the HRM is more of an ideology, despite many well intended, passionate and educated people that constitute its membership and following.

  1. Hey B-man, Hal here. Stopped by for a quick read but it looks like you’ve put some time in this so I’m going to have to chew a little slower and take my time. 🙂

    1. No problem. It’s at your leisure or disposal. As I’m sure you have noticed, the web commenting can become very exhausting. What I hope these articles will prove is that the arguments we encounter are not as theologically complex as they may seem. I believe they stem from simple misunderstandings or denials of the basic Bible fundamentals.

      1. Yeah it can be exhausting if you don’t turn it over to God. It used to frustrate me to no end when God would send Mormons, JWs, warlocks, witches and what seemed like every manner of cult members my way and no matter what I said it always seem to fall on deaf ears. Then a friend of mine said “Have you ever considered that maybe your job is only to plant the seed?”

        It was like cold water on my face, now I can do it all day long (time permitting) and it doesn’t bother me in the least. It’s God’s job to grant repentance, not mine. 🙂

  2. Well it looks like I don’t have to worry about becoming exhausted on that Rives’ thread. I must have struck a nerve somewhere when I responded with Stephen’s words from Acts 7:51-53 and my commentary to an HRM post where the poster claimed that Gentiles bringing paganism into the Church are the reason Jews can’t see the Messiah. They blocked my response and deleted my previous post.

    Guess I’ve been cyber stoned by the WND Sanhedrin. 🙂

    1. I was wondering about that after seeing your comment was deleted. Crazy, especially when the videos are called “Biblical Christianity”. I hope they didn’t block you from commenting altogether.

      1. Yeah, I can’t count the number of cults I’ve had at my door promoting “Biblical Christianity” (JWs, Mormons, etc). That phrase is simply a buzzword for every unclean bird under the sun. They use it to beguile people who haven’t been inoculated against the gospel of works and foreskins by the book of Galatians.
