Why Relationship and Sex Laws

Why should we be concerned about relationship and sex laws?

I started of this in a different place and needed to rethink the idea of relationships. More a presentation from a different point of view, rather than a change in what I know and do.

In today’s world, political correctness is literally killing the masses of people. No, not all in one day but over the decades and from many directions. Even with the dangers like: war, famine, disease, earth quakes and other such events, this is the single greatest hazard to the population earth. Political correctness is designed to […]

A Child Of GOD, Meaning?

During our lives we will and have heard that phrase “Child of God” many times and from various sources. But, to quote from the “Princess Bride” movie:

[Vizzini has just cut the rope The Dread Pirate Roberts is climbing.] Vizzini: HE DIDN’T FALL? INCONCEIVABLE. Inigo Montoya: You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means. {From imdb.com: quotes}

The point is: We often use words and phrases which sound good, without thinking about the meaning or consequence of such words. So let us look at the meaning of this “Child Of God”, for […]

We Just Do Not Like The Answer!

This is probably the most disconcerting issue. No the answer is not 42!

Wait! That is the problem, we just don’t like the answer. So we keep looking for another answer.

Maybe we should start with a Written Torah example, where a man named Balak does not like the answer. So he tells Balaam to look at them(Children of Jacob) from here!

Well the story is in Numbers 22 thru 24. Balak the son of Zippor was king of Moab at that time. He sees what the Israelites have done to the Amorites, and is afraid. He sends representatives to […]

A Response To One Playing Devils Advocate

While I was celebrating a Feast of Unleaven Bread dinner, a Holocaust Survivor, began a rant against the LIVING GOD OF Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.

“Why should I server a selfish, jealous, maniacal, egotistical, self centered god? . . . . .”

I began a rebuttal with questions like: You should be able to fight your mother and your father, that gave you life and safety, clothed you and feed you and an education, and belong to a family, and . . . . .?

The immediate response is “I am just playing devil’s advocate!”

So here I am going […]

Why Are Most Of Us Worse Than The Pharaoh in the Exodus?

Why are most of us are worse than, the Pharaoh in the Exodus Story?

We spend our lives, not learning what is really important. That GOD is; also that Your soul, which is more valuable that anything you can desire, is yours to save or lose.

The Hebrews were out of Egypt in a few months of the LORD sending Moses and Aaron, which came, and said unto Pharaoh:, ‘Thus saith the LORD, the God of Israel: Let My people go, that they may hold a feast unto Me in the wilderness.’ “Exodus 5:1”

Yes! Most are worse than Pharaoh, […]

Do Unto Others_Reviewed

Do unto others. . . .

The religions of the world have really been beating this one for a long time. I don’t see that this has improved the world.

Let us look at the examples of the text.

http://www.mechon-mamre.org/p/pt/pt0319.htm JPS 1917 Leviticus 19:18 Thou shalt not take vengeance, nor bear any grudge against the children of thy people, but thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself: I am the LORD.

“ thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself”

This has a number of ramifications and willful (by humans) re-interpretations.

King James Bible (Cambridge Ed.) http://bible.cc/matthew/7-12.htm Matthew 7:12 Therefore all […]

A Death, Then What?

It Was The Death of Your Body.

In watching various movies and reading stories over a couple of decades, somethings happened.

Instead of just seeing a death, I saw: that it is usually sudden, usually not your choice of when or how. But, it could happen with the next heart beat or not. So what happens when you pass that point and you find that your body is no longer usable?

Your soul is not dead, yet. However, it does contain the record of everything you have done. In some thinking this would be the sum of you and your […]

Are We Not Righteous?

The Children of Jacob have Covenants with the LORD GOD. These included belonging to the Creator of the Heavens and the Earth. Are we not already the LORD’S? First you are required to choose, but the short answer for most is: Absolutely Not!

How can we get it Right: Exodus 19:5 Now therefore, if ye will hearken unto My voice indeed, and keep My covenant, then ye shall be Mine own treasure from among all peoples; for all the earth is Mine; 6 and ye shall be unto Me a kingdom of priests, and a holy nation. These are the […]

Who Thinks They Can Study With Me?

Do you think you are knowledgeable about the Tanakh?

How about the written TORAH?

For me to help others to learn, is great. I really enjoy teaching those that want the Truth. Those that ask intelligent questions, even from a child. The last seem to grasp what is Written and then able to ask better questions than most adults or religious leaders I have ever met.

In a way this is great, for children are most inquisitive and if treated to direct answers and discussion, they can be very fast learners.

But, the Study I am looking for are with […]

The GOD, Who Brought You Out Of Egypt To BE YOUR GOD!

This phrase from “Exodus 20:2 I am the LORD thy God, who brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. Thou shalt have no other gods before Me.” This verse declares a few a few things. 1) I am the LORD your GOD. 2) (Because) I brought you out of the land of Egypt!. 3)(Out of ) The house of bondage.

These three items are fulfillment of a deal made with Abraham, Isaac […]
