Is it just in this area or is this getting to be a big deal everywhere? We've got folks abandoning the Trinity, re-establishing sabbath worship, going back to the dietary laws and restrictions, even doing animal sacrifices around here. They won't celebrate Christmas or Easter, but they do have Yom Kippur, seders, etc.

This is way beyond the messianic Jew stuff that I'm used to encountering. Have you run into these folks and if so, how do you deal with them?

No, but there are a growing number of Evangelicals wanting to get back to the "Jewish Roots", ie dietary laws, fests, Christmas, Easter are pagan, etc... :barf:

Animal Sacrifices? I can see how they may fall into some of the other practices. But Animal Sacrifices are straight-up AntiChrist. What group does Animal Sacrifices?

It's very, very rare, but it exists.

The last link looks like it has more to do with syncretism than with Judaizing.

ETA: I'm not trying to start an argument--just observing. I think the OP was asking about Protestant groups, though. Or am I wrong?

Yes, but I'd be surprised if some of the practitioners weren't inclined to look for and draw some parallels between their culture's animal sacrifices and those practiced by the Jews in the OT as some sort of means of justification. Maybe it's a bad assumption, but it's just very much my expectation.

As to the OP, I don't know that it's getting any worse or better. I knew a Sunday School teacher in a very large Southern Baptist church in Atlanta, Georgia who actively teaches his class that they are still under the Law. He encourages them to keep the feasts, the dietary laws, the clothing laws, and other such things. I've also known a couple of "Jewish-roots" type Christians online who make similar arguments. But they really are very few and far between. I could count the total number I've met on two hands, maybe even one.

It's a reasonable supposition, at least.

Yes, these are Protestant groups. They are growing like wildfire here. In the recent flooding, they wouldn't even try to preserve their houses because it was Saturday.

They claim they "are just doing Bible things the Bible way."

The animal sacrifices thing is just crazy. They are waiting for a new Temple and everything. I have no idea what they plan to do about priests.
