Rabbi Lapin: If you want to properly judge a religion, here's how

If you want to judge a certain faith practice, look to people who are devoted to the faith and who actually follow the rules dictated by their religion, Rabbi Daniel Lapin said on this week’s episode of “The Rabbi Daniel Lapin Show.”

“I judge religions by the behavior of their devotees,” he said.

For example, you shouldn’t look at Democratic Party leaders to understand Judaism even though Jewish people have supported and fueled the party because people who embrace liberalism have largely abandoned the faith, Rappin Lapin asserted.

To judge the Jewish faith, look to people who observe the Sabbath, eat kosher, follow Jewish marital laws and otherwise follow the dictates of the Torah. If you want to see the Church of Latter-Day Saints in action, visit a Mormon community and see how people are living out their faith.

“You will find people who are gentle, who are law-abiding, who don’t go on welfare, who take care of their families and basically are model citizens,” Rabbi Lapin said.
