A brother contacted me privately and very kindly reminded me that a “Spiritual Jew” is “not a Jew who is one on the outside, nor is circumcision something on the outside, on the flesh. But he is a Jew who is one on the inside, and his circumcision is that of the heart by spirit and not by a written code. That person’s praise comes from God, not from people.” Rom 2:28,29 NWT
Well of course he is entirely correct! I was inaccurately referring to the term “spiritual Jew” in my description of JWs that try to obtain their righteousness “through works of Law”. Well of course I thanked him profusely for being kind enough to alert me to such a glaring error!
Anyhow, I updated the post above, and replaced every reference of “spiritual Jew” with “anti-typical Jew” – which makes much more sense, and the whole thought comes together much better. I am so thankful that brother wrote me about it!
