To hook you into their beliefs, counter-missionaries will usually approach you with the supposedly “false” teachings of the supposedly “anti-Torah” Paul - which is an absolute LIE, because Paul NEVER spoke against Torah. All he was guilty of was trying hard to explain difficult Hebrew concepts to a pagan populace! Remember, Paul was the one who wrote:

Romans 3:31 Do we then nullify the Law (Torah) through faith? May it never be! On the contrary, we ESTABLISH the Law.... (CJB)

Still, once they get you to believe that Paul was a fake, they’ll start attacking “Jesus” (they will hardly ever use Messiah's given, Hebrew name "Yeshua" - which means "YHWH is Salvation") who is supposedly either a "myth" or "just some man" or an “idol” you are guilty of worshiping (which, of course, is a SIN).

They’ll tell you “God doesn’t have a son, nor did He ever demand human sacrifice.” (Never mind that Yeshua wasn’t “sacrificed” – because nobody “sacrificed” this DIVINE Messiah of God, who chose to martyr himself - against which there is NO Torah law!)

In other words, unless you KNOW Scripture properly (from a Hebrew; not a Greek mindset), they will tear you to shreds and use your comments as teaching tools to hone their skills!

If you don't want to risk being "confused" by their shrewd and calculated assertions about Yeshua, Paul and the NT, then start doing some intense Bible studies from the Hebraic perspective so that you can respond intelligently to their, for instance, "God never demanded human sacrifices" allegation thusly:

Offerings "qurbana" and sacrifices "dabekha" are two different entities. Although there are certain aspects to Mashiyach's death that are utterly unique to him (Zechariah 12:10, etc.), his death nevertheless echoes aspects of offerings and sacrifices that came before. The qurbana is the human life (nefesh) that Y'shua voluntarily offers up on the stake. The result of that offering is his blood put out on the "altar"; hence dabekha.

However, this is certainly not, as some critics suggest, "human sacrifice." Rather, this indicates Y'shua's status as Mashiyach ben Yoseph. Per strict accordance with Isaiah 53 and Genesis 22:8, Mashiyach ben Yoseph was required to suffer and die.

After his death, the offering of himself became a sacrifice that was taken up, and he was resurrected three days later. Many of YHWH's prophets also suffered and were martyred at the hands of those who fought against the Kingdom of Elohim. In the case of Mashiyach, his shed blood is counted as the acceptable offering, the Lamb of YHWH, which is most Set Apart unto YHWH.

BOTTOM LINE: KNOW the Bible, from cover to cover! If you've only read the NT (the last FOURTH of the Bible), or have spent your life cherry-picking your way through it, then IGNORE the counter-missionaries completely, and do everything in your power to get away from them. Don't even bother trying to defend yourself because you have no real understanding of Scripture ... in other words, you DON'T really know God, His Messiah, or what happened in the first THREE-FOURTHS of the Bible...
