How Do You Change Your Life? (1-11-18)

3 years ago
13 I grew up a Christian and I saw few lives transformed by their conversion to Christianity.

At age 27, I converted to Judaism. I can't recall many people whose characters were transformed by their practice of Judaism. If they were angry and miserable and dishonest before becoming Orthodox, they were still angry, miserable and dishonest after their change. From my experience, knowing that someone kept kosher and prayed three times a day told me nothing about whether or not they were a decent human being. It did signify, however, that they had a strong in-group identity. I think that's the major change I've noticed when Jews become observant -- they increase their in-group identity and consequently develop suspicion and fear of out-groups.

Overall, the only process that I have seen change people's character for the better is the 12 Steps.
