Why am I drawn towards Judaism?

I noticed I started getting drawn towards Judaism when I was learning reiki. Ever since then Iíve had an on and off interest in it. Donít know why. Not much logical reason to be. Itís pretty much the Old Testament. I donít have any interest in Christianity. Iíve never been one to join religions. Not even more open ones like the Bahaíi faith. I like the Bahaíi faith in theory, but I have no interest in it. For some reason Iím still drawn to Judaism which couldnít be more of a religion. I know conversion is a big deal. I donít want to convert at the moment, but Iím scared I will one day. What makes Judaism unique from other religions? Particularly Christianity.

While I don't think that any religion is truly unique, I can tell you perhaps three major things that make Judaism different from Christianity:

1. In Judaism, action and deeds are generally viewed as being more important than faith. In Christianity, faith is generally viewed as being more important over action and deeds.

2. Jews do not believe in the Christian concept of "original sin." In Judaism, all babies are born into the world free of the stain of Adam's sin. Interestingly, the doctrine of original sin wasn't officially adopted by Christianity until hundreds of years after the religion's inception.

3. Finally (and most obviously), Jews are still waiting for the Mashiach (Messiah) to arrive.
