The Hebrew Roots / Sacred Name Movement

I’ve been hearing people refer to this movement, which is apparently growing.  Here is a good overview if you know someone exploring it or a part of it: Sola Sisters: Addressing the Hebrew Roots / Sacred Name Movement.

The Hebrew Roots Movement/Sacred Name Movement are a fast-growing works righteous movement which are a modern day form of “Judaizing,” the heresy that the Apostle Paul had to address several times in his ministry. From an article posted at The Berean Call by Richard Fisher, the movement is described this way:

“(The Hebrew Roots Movement) is a very modern movement that insists that we must resurrect first-century Judaism (our Jewish Roots) and the milieu and lifestyle of first-century Jews and impose them on both Jewish and non-Jewish believers. This is not just an academic study to better understand Scripture and its setting but is rather a movement of restoration that claims that the church has moved off its Jewish foundation and must return to a more Jewish way of life to be authentic.” (online source)

As always, the best antidote to these heresies is to read the Bible for yourself.  You’ll realize far from reality they are.
