The Church and Israel (I talked with an extremist)

I had a discussion with someone today where he told me (to sum up):

  1. The Church and Israel are the same thing.
  2. Jews can be and are saved by following the law.
  3. He hardly ever sins.
  4. Christians must observe all Hebrew traditions because they are the 'law'.
  5. Law = Grace
  6. Children are born sinless.

Needless to say he ended up contradicting himself a lot.. but what I felt from the discussion is that he is actually practicing Christianity but also Judaism at the same time. He admits Christ's death is enough, but for other people there is another method for Salvation. He also practices and observes all Jewish traditions, which has become a works based faith for him.

Anyone got any good resources surrounding this stuff? Or any comments to make? Would love to hear what you guys think.

Really interesting stuff, but as with many people who get into the Israel stuff it becomes an idol.
