613.22: Pray To God.
(Exodus 23:25; Deuteronomy 6:13)
Praying to God is serving God. How so?
The first step to serving a master is to acknowledge there is a master. Praying is acknowledging that there is a higher power who grants all of the positive blessings we seek: Life, Health, Financial Stability, Love, and so many other things. In fact, everything. For while we might like to believe that we make our own luck by taking advantage of opportunities, those opportunities which we grab, or would like to grab, derive from SOMEWHERE. Thus, even if we do not believe in "luck" per se, we DO believe that "opportunity knocks."
But on which door does opportunity knock? What is this door? And how does opportunity come upon this door? And how does it knock? And why? And why do opportunities of positive experience even exist? If everything is chaos, should there be any expectation of a definable positive, or even negative, result? Why not random dissassociation to any"normal" outcome? What IS normalcy? And why do we crave it?
These are all very good questions which we have neither the time nor the actual wisdom to answer. BUT for those who believe in God, these mysteries don't quite matter as much as whether or not the future can be affected. Can it? Does God listen to prayer and act according to His delight, whether to answer prayers or not answer prayers? Or is God not involved in the minutiae of everyday requirements, having already created and moved on to other projects? The answer is self-evident in everyday life. Prayers ARE answered, and miracles DO happen, even if naysayers, for their own reasons, wish to take away that hope and joy.
When we pray to God, we LOVE God, because we are asking for His goodness in our lives. God commands us to love Him, with all of our heart, soul, and might. And when we pray, especially in time of dire need, the heart and soul is mightly involved. Prayer is therefore loving God AND serving God. But is that all God requires, that we pray to Him and trust Him?
Of course not! The commandment to pray is only one of 613 commandments. Praying may fulfill our personal needs, but praying does not fulfill all of Torah. We are still commanded to fulfill many other commandments. When we do not, we must repent. This too is accomplished through prayer (the animal sacrifice requirements being currently suspended due to The Temple in Jerusalem being inactive). But this is also not the end of it.
In Matthew 5:19, Jesus tells us that each smallest commandment should not only be personally accomplished (or repented thereof for not accomplishing), but also taught. In fact, Christ is adamant that those who do NOT teach the least commandment shall be called least in Heaven, in sharp contrast to those who DO teach the least commandment, who are to be called GREATEST in Heaven.
We can see then that prayer is not just about petitioning God to alter our paths, and not only to overturn burdens and negative circumstances in our lives. Prayer is also a method by which we repent for Torah commandments we do not fulfill or teach.

613.19: PHYLACTERIES (T’FILLIN) ON THE HEAD.
613.20: PHYLACTERIES (T’FILLIN) ON THE ARM.
613.21: MEZUZAH ON THE DOORPOST.
What are the consequences of ignoring God’s Law?
We might say the main consequence is the corrosion of society. We might draw a line between disobedience against God and the collapse of civilization. To some degree, this would be correct. The intentional dismissal of “small” things leads to the tolerance of bigger and more consequential things. This is true where it concerns bullying and abuse, and it is just as true for the cohesion of society.
other hand, strict adherence to religious constructs hasn’t always led to great
societies. Islam hasn’t done much
service for the Arab world per se, and Hinduism hasn’t brought
It is therefore difficult to see why people remain religious. Religious leaders appear to be, or are, lustful of power, money and fame – and the adherents appear to be mostly blind to such avarice. In many places, adherence to faith, especially Christian and Jewish faith, draws derision rather than admiration. Even where adherence to faith is admired, it is controlled by political forces.
Yet, religion perseveres. It cannot be due to gratitude for technological marvels – such things do not exist in many religious regions - and where these marvels do exist, such technology is a relatively new achievement. Religion predates such advancements, and continues with them. Adherents are not convinced that religion held back progress, and thus are not convinced it ever will, even if those who love progress, and desire more of it, are convinced that religious adherents are the cause of technological slowdown or entropy.
Thus, adherence to ancient commandments has little to offer. There is no direct connection between obedience to God and the rise of empire, and there is no direct connection between disobedience to God and the fall of empire. Generally, such rise and fall is seen as a struggle between good and evil on a much greater scale, between freedom and enslavement, between those who cherish life and those who love death. Even on the atomic scale, a person cannot find a direct connection between obedience to God and good luck in love or money. Where such luck seems to exist, it is often exploited by hucksters, then ridiculed by anti-religionists. Thus, the Law of God is often shortchanged by our perceptions of what is and what should be.
We don’t quite understand the nature or purpose of obedience to commandments. Thus, we flop to faith. We see faith as a more powerful tool. We consider prayer to move invisible mountains. We mount dedication as a trophy. And when we are confronted by the necessity to fulfill commandments, we bristle. Why? Likely, the forces of life which demand our obedience, to the laws of economics, to the law of physics, to the laws of life and death, have caused us to become so weary with what we “have to do” and have to put up with” that we feel justified to tell God, “I can’t do anymore. Please just accept what I can give you.”
cannot say that God does not accept such a plea. It’s an honest plea, and it appeals to God
Himself, which is
Faith is the desire to run, and that’s intention, even good intention, but to actually run just one more length is action, not intention. Though based in intention, there must be an action which follows. Intention without action is dead. Faith without works is dead.
OK, you might say, if I am to take action and not just have intention, and my energy and time is limited, why should I spend that time and energy on rituals such as tzitzit and t’fillin and mezuzah? Aren’t there more important things to do? Yes, there are. But if you’re too tired or strapped for time to do the little things, how will you do the big things? And if you have the time and energy for the big things, why not also the little things?
Jesus said, “Whoever keeps the least commandment and teaches it to others shall be called greatest in heaven, and whoever does not keep the least commandment and also teaches others not to keep shall be called least in heaven” (Matthew 5:19). Which are the “least commandments”? Whichever you personally think are least. Thus, when you decide that one commandment is too little to bother with, but you attempt to fulfill it anyway, utilizing valuable time and energy, and furthermore you teach it to others (such as your children), you are looked upon, according to Jesus, as the greatest.
Think about it! Of all the things Jesus might’ve said makes you greatest in heaven – running for office, destroying the corrupt – it is fulfilling and teaching the least commandment which actually does it. Why? Those things which God has commanded but which we dismiss or neutralize, for whatever reason, rise to the top of the “must do” column, in God’s eyes. Refraining from murder, for most of us, is easy. Fulfilling the commandment to wear t’fillin is, for most of us, very difficult. Why?
For Christians, there is a greater dilemma. Christians believe that faith is the be-all and end-all which fills in the missing spaces created by ignoring Torah. Yes, even the most anti-Torah Christian believes that ignoring Torah requires Jesus Christ to make everything whole. The mystery is why the Christian who sees these holes as necessary to fill would not attempt to fill them personally. The Church has seemingly provided an answer to this laziness of self - Christians are taught that faith in Christ fulfills Torah because Christ fulfilled Torah. If there is such a thing as religious welfare, this is it – sponging off the hard work and actual actions of another, that is, sponging off Christ.
But Christ did not sponge, he worked. Why then does a Christian believe sponging is what God desires?
This is not all Christians. Many Christians believe in the power of works also. Yet here too, they refrain from actual Torah, preferring their own artificial morality, whether created from thin air or from compromises of the pulpit. If you, Christian, are truly interested in pleasing God, why limit your commandments to only 10, and without much explication? Indeed, Christians cannot even agree whether Sabbath is Sunday or Saturday!
Why do Christians say a tithe is mandatory but not adhere to tithing as commanded in Torah?
Especially, and towards today’s lesson, why do they fear outward affiliation with Torah? Why do they refrain from, even criticize and attack, the commandments to wear tzitzit and t’fillin, and to affix a mezuzah? Is it that the Christian believes he will be banished to hell for obeying such commandments? Or is it instead that Christianity has intentionally avoided being Jewish? Yes, this is it.
We know this historically, and we know it continues to this day. That though Jesus Christ was circumcised, and was, according to Christian doctrine, perfect in the Law of God (Torah), and though he repeatedly called for strict adherence to Torah (Matthew being the most perfect construction of this, His expectation), Christianity teaches that to follow in such footsteps is not only not required but also frowned upon, even detrimental to one’s destination in the afterlife!

To reject any part of the Law, whether out of contempt or out of some “Christian privilege” (a real problem), causes great issues for us with the enemies of Judeo-Christianity, that is, with the enemies of Torah. For a start, the atheists and anti-theists seize upon any grumbling in order to erode confidence in commandments, whether to eliminate limits on sexuality or to erect a satanic monument in the public square (Google this). Islamic proponents utilize every crease to venerate Koran in the community. Even those peaceful white Buddhists use small divisions to make whatever self-aggrandizing statement suits them this day. It is therefore self-defeating for any Christian or Jew to bash any commandment of God.

Make no mistake, many Jewish people are no different, and perhaps worse. They reject their genetics, their culture, and their religion, probably in the false belief that if they assimilate they will be safer (how ironic that many of these same Jews do not demand immigrants assimilate into their society!). Not all Jews, but many, eat unclean foods, work on the Sabbath, forget the High Holidays altogether, and neglect even basic things such as circumcision for their sons.
Many commandments of God seem inordinately trivial or decidedly clannish. This is intentional. God has fashioned certain commandments as signs of separation, of outward affiliation with the “gang” of Torah. That’s right, visual identification is commanded by God.
For example, today’s commandment, to wear fringes on garments is a sign to the world that you are of Torah. The commandment is fairly easy to accomplish. One can wear the traditional tallis with appropriate number of fringes and color stripe, or one is permitted to wear an inner garment, which in times of peril may qualify (“peril” being subjective, of course). One might ask, does a fringed pair of suede boots “count” towards obedience. As one who desires Torah to be in the heart, I would answer “yes” IF those suede boots are worn with intent. Naturally, many Jews would disagree, desiring the “gang colors” to be more specific and concrete, and I respect that stronger stance, but sometimes it is more beneficial to “ease in” obedience (and again, many more stringent Jews would disagree).
danger in discussing Torah obedience is in-fighting. It is easier to attack each other over small
points rather than to attack the disobedient, even the blasphemous. This is because we, as believers, are
naturally more meek, and we find it embarrassing and even frightening to
confront the outside world. We as Torah
believers should take a page from Islamic passion and demand social structure, not request it. Does this sound too radical? It’s not.

613.17: CIRCUMCISE THE MALE OFFSPRING.
(Genesis 17:12, Leviticus 12:3)
The Law of God tells us to circumcise the male child on the eighth day after his birth. The covenant with Abraham makes clear that circumcision of the male child is necessary to be considered part of the house of Abraham, and therefore apportioned with the promise of God to inherit the Earth. The meek are those who obey God, humbling themselves beyond, or before, their fears and desires. The meek inherit the Earth.
Jesus was circumcised. Why was Jesus circumcised? To distinguish Him as a believer, a Jew, and a lawful male. The fact that the Bible tells us explicitly when and how Jesus was circumcised indicates this information is pertinent, even ultimate. If circumcision were not important or vital, why did God have Jesus born to a Jewish family? Why not a Gentile family? Some may say He fulfills all commandments, so He is the perfect sacrifice. First, the reason to be perfect in the Law is not to be a sacrifice, but an example. Second, the New Testament does not list every commandment Jesus kept or did not keep, but circumcision is one made explicit. Third, even those who say Jesus was perfect in the Law seem to take delight in believing that Jesus also disobeyed commandments openly and rebelliously, particularly against the Jewish authorities. This is madness. Jesus can be considered neither a perfect sacrifice nor a lawful Jew if He were flagrantly violating Torah. The truth, if you can handle it, is that those who say Jesus violated Torah are misusing Christ as a torch for their own hedonisms, such as eating unclean foods and acting in unlawful behaviors. Basically, if you think Jesus came to overturn any part of the Law, you not only make Jesus a liar (Matthew , et al) but you also make God look like an idiot. No part of Torah may be added or subtracted (our previous lesson), and those who teach such things are the worst. Jesus is not the exception because He then becomes the rule, the archetype, the teacher of disobedience, and therefore Satan. But there is no argument here, for Jesus Himself said He did not come to destroy any letter of the Law. And His circumcision is a sign from God that Jesus was born to keep the Law. There is no other interpretation.
Circumcision is one of the commanded signs of separation to distinguish oneself from the non-believer. It’s like being part of the gang. The fact that many are circumcised for health reasons does not necessarily mean God recognizes such circumcision as separation, but perhaps He does. The act is the consummation of intent, so perhaps intent can be appended later.
The Mohammedans keep this commandment, intentionally. The Bible tells us that Abraham circumcised Ishmael also, at the same time that everyone else in Abraham’s household. Ishmael was therefore included in the covenant. as well as having his own special promise (it’s in the Bible). But female circumcision is not in Torah. Perhaps it is not forbidden but there is no lawful or godly reason to perform female circumcision.
Male circumcision is not barbaric, it is commanded. God is not barbaric either. Circumcision is not especially painful for the male child and rarely, if ever, leads to any physical or mental issues. It is, in fact, a very safe procedure, especially when performed by an expert (moil). To refrain from circumcising the male offspring, out of fear, is still disobedience. To refrain out of rebellion curses the child from God’s promise. Those who say they don’t care about, or desire, God’s promise are a threat to Torah society. Their place is separate from those who do circumcise. Sorry if that offends, but the Gentiles have had no issue in separating themselves from the Jews, almost compulsively so. The Mohammedans have taken the more aggressive road, doing the separating by force rather than taking the separation in passivity. The fact is, circumcision does not make one any more aggressive or passive.
As usual, keeping or not keeping the commandment does not guarantee you wealth, power, love, or any other desired thing. It is not a sign of domination over other humans or of superior luck. It is a sign of obedience to God, of humility.
613 COMMANDMENTS! Today, #16.
613.16: WRITE A SCROLL OF TORAH FOR YOURSELF.
How difficult is it to implement Torah?
First, why does that matter? If you believe in God, the difficulty in obeying God is merely a test of your resolve, just as it is a test of your resolve to deal with all manner of difficult situations where it concerns friends and family. Do you abandon your wife, husband, children, parents, or close friends if they are difficult or ask you to go through trials with them? If so, you are not loyal and cannot be trusted. It’s no different with God.
“But God is infinite and omnipotent. He doesn’t need my help.” Oh, but He does. God cannot come down and live your life for you. He cannot make your Free Will feel any differently. He cannot force you to love anything, including Him. In fact, the Free Will with which you’re blessed can only cause you to rebel against, resent, and hate every rule, law, and construct which binds you. You must make your own choices, respect those choices, and deal with the consequences, good or bad. Only then will you love God, when you are blessed, and learn to love God even when you are not blessed, or even cursed.
Second, most Torah is not that difficult to implement. Believing in God is a snap, as most atheists will tell you. In fact, they believe it is the more difficult thing to live without a belief in God, especially when everyone else seems to believe, and this therefore makes the atheist feel superior. In times of weakness, the atheist finds self-respect, pride, and solace in having rejected the “crutch” of God for the inner strength of him or herself. Of course, the power to make that choice is from God Himself. Only man, among all the creatures, is known to make a god or know God. And only man, among all creatures, rejects God. All other creatures merely live. We are blessed by nature (or even evolution, if you like) with a higher thought process, which includes God. The knowledge of God is actually the more evolved and powerful thought, while the rejection of God is the rejection of human evolution. It is no small coincidence that most people who live on Earth, probably 85 to 95% of the world’s population, believe in God, gods, a god, or a higher intelligent power. So the atheist is not evolved, just in the minority.
Nevertheless, most believers don’t apply their daily power to obedience in or serving God. They spend their time fighting demons, clawing for wealth and power, and seeking pleasures while avoiding pain. Does this prove it is difficult to implement the Law of God? Only so far as it is difficult to get to the serving and obedience. There is no lack of energy in man, only a lack of willingness to apply oneself to something other than the self. This, of course, is the commonality of us all, that we are self-motivated by self-interest. The communist can never alter that. Neither can the altruist. Neither can God.
He created Free Will not only for good intentions but also for best results. Love cannot flower where there is no Free Will. But where there is love, there is hate. Where there is good will, there is ill will. And so forth. It is not God’s “fault” that we disobey Him, it is actually God’s Will. Otherwise, we would serve mindlessly, without Free Will.
This doesn’t mean we are free to disobey the Law of God. It means God expects it as a by-product of a creature created with Free Will. Thus, the Law of God provides for all types of mercy and forgiveness, where it is possible with God. There are penances to make the unclean clean, and atonements to make the sinful sinless again.
Naturally, if you reject the Law, you reject the penances and atonements also. Here, I cannot help you. It is up to you to make a Free Will choice to serve the higher power, who knows every atom in the universe and every emotion you feel. It is up to you to decide that God knows what’s best for you. Even here, however, there is no assurance, for we know many good die young or broke, and many evil live well and at the expense of the good. It’s up to you to decide what is good or evil, even if the Law of God already tells you. But, if you make a choice, it is your choice and your consequence, here and hereafter. Do the evil really prosper, or is that an illusion? What do they sacrifice in their humanity? Do they serve Satan actively, in occult practices? Is there anything for free in this world?

613 COMMANDMENTS! Today, #14 & 15.
613.14: NOT TO ADD TO THE
613.15: NOT TO TAKE AWAY FROM THE COMMANDMENTS OF TORAH.
In every degree, we are all hedonists who want our desires met, even if we also desire God to look favorably upon our Torah behavior and thought. This means we have two minds and two hearts. On one hand, every person has hopes, dreams, urges, wants and appetites. On the other hand, every person seeks respect, even admiration and love, for being “good” and “not evil.” The disparity, the argument, the tantrum even, occurs when a large enough bloc of power is against that which you hope, dream, or desire.
Most of the time, we can agree that certain hopes, dreams and desires should be denied us. Examples? When we are angry and wish to harm or kill someone. When we are jealous or greedy and wish to steal things or people (kidnapping, rape, adultery). When we are impetuous and wish to have revenge. When we are ungrateful and wish to rebel against the hand that feeds us.
On other things, we do not agree with blocs of power against us. Then we rebel to have what feels good or “right” and we justify rebellion by many words or, sometimes, action. Some rebellion is justified. Contracts broken by powerful entities must be reinstated, and at times wars are fought to restore such lawful order. Other rebellion is not so cut-and-dried, including those which assert to be in favor of human dignity, and this is where Torah is lost.
Many will say that Torah is secondary to human desire. This is the essence of today’s lesson. In fact, the commandment itself acknowledges such human desire and acknowledges the rebellion to fulfill that desire, against Torah. That is, Torah understands and assumes you want to rebel against it. Most lawful systems give avenue for self-amendment to satisfy mutual rebellion against rules or laws. Contracts include clauses for amendment by mutual agreement. Constitutions of nations include methods for lawful amendment. Torah, on the other hand, does not include any avenue for amendment, and specifically bars it. This is unique in law, which makes it all the more remarkable. Islam has its Hadith, Christianity has its Paulian deviation, and even Hinduism has “evolved” from its original basis, but Torah is not subject to change.
Let me amend that previous statement. There are Jews who do not view Torah as unbreakable, and even some who do not believe it was God, but rather men, who gave the commandments. Regardless, their views do not change the actual commandments, and their desires do not create new laws. There are other Jews who do not amend Torah but cast many interpretations, so that desires may be included in Torah society for the sake of personal flexibility. These “Sages” made many commentaries which were included in Talmud and other great books of Jewish thought on the subject of Torah. The greater danger to Torah is actually from this latter group. For it is not that desires overwhelm Torah, but that interpretations from respected Sages seem to verify rebellion over obedience.
Even here, however, there are two schools of thought. The first school of thought is Sadducee, which is literal interpretation of Torah, with no, or very little, room for deviation. This may appear too strict, but Sadducees understand that human desire is too strong to permit a Torah society very much latitude. The second school of thought is Pharisee, which permits interpretation of Torah. The New Testaments tells us the Pharisees believed in resurrection, the Sadducees did not (Acts 23:8). Does this mean resurrection is not included in the Old Testament? No, it’s there. Whether the “dry bones” of Ezekiel, or the resurrection of people (for example, 1 Kings -24), there is a case to be made in favor of the reality of resurrection. The point is, even those strictly in favor of Torah may disagree on fundamental beliefs.
this disagreement becomes dangerous, to both Torah and society, is when actual
commandments are thrown to the wind.
There is no provision for negating any commandments, or for neutralizing
any specified punishment for breaking a specific commandment. “OK then, smart guy, then tell me why the
Jews don’t still perform animal sacrifices at the
This applies to all things. Whether arguments for eating unclean foods, wearing tattoos, accepting homosexuality, or breaking any other number of Torah taboos, there is a struggle for what is perceived as “human dignity” in order to do that which is forbidden. Christians invoke Jesus as their catalyst and attorney, saying Christ came to get rid of many impediments to breaking Torah. Really? That’s your argument: you love Christ because he permits your sin? “No, smart guy, it’s no longer sin because he died for my sin.” So you’re saying Christ died so you could eat pork, wear tattoos, and accept male homosexuality? “I don’t judge, smart guy, and neither should you.” This sounds like you want me to be quiet for the sake of peace. “That’s right, smart guy, peace. Stop being such a retrograde Neanderthal. Evolve!” To which I say, if Jesus wanted me to adapt for the sake of peace, why did He say, “I didn’t come to bring peace”? Are you saying Jesus came in favor of sin against Torah, His Torah, so that your desires could be met? “Hey, smart guy, it’s a mystery why God loves me, so I don’t question that love.” And therein lies a deeper truth.
Those who claim “mystery” regarding sin and Grace only see it as mystery because they are too busy justifying their sin. There is no mystery. God desires obedience rather than sacrifice (1 Samuel , et al), and the justification of sin due to some mysterious automatic Grace is not the truth of God or Christ, but rather Satan (Romans 6:1-2). Those who forgive sins while permitting them are aiding and abetting sin, and therefore sinners themselves. This cannot be the description of Christ, nor anyone who follows the Law of God.
“Oh yeah, smart guy, well, if God didn’t want us to sin, why did He create us as sinners? Is it God playing a sick game?” To which I say, the alternative to freedom of will is to be an automaton, a robot, a zombie. Is that preferable? God created you with free will for one reason, so you could choose to love Him. Selfish? Maybe. He does say His name is Jealousy. But He is the master of the universe, not you. If you question why you were created to be free, maybe you should ask yourself why being free is such a problem for you. That is, why is it so hard for you to be obedient? “Oh yeah, smart guy, are you perfect in the Law?” No, but I’m not teaching against the Law in order to justify my mistakes and sins. I own it and I repent for it. Repentance is acknowledging I am flawed, and then putting in effort to change, to stop the sin.
Naturally, nothing I say will stop those single-minded to have their way, whether sexually, or in food, or in drink, or in warfare, or in corruption. They will make me the butt of jokes, just as the same type of hedonists made Jesus the butt of jokes, and eventually crucified Him. Remember, the authorities put Jesus on the cross, but the people permitted it. First, the good people said nothing. Second, the sinners showed up to cheer on His death. Then, back to the business of their carnality. But the resurrection of Christ showed that Torah cannot be killed. Torah, not a person, was resurrected from the grave.
Hedonists continue in their sin. Justified by corrupt governments who love their weakness, and weak religious ideas that love carnality, and criminals who profit from distribution of hedonism. Torah is seen as backwards and, honestly, not a lot of fun. This is the eternal struggle.
613 COMMANDMENTS! Today, #13.
613.13: TO CLEAVE TO THOSE WHO KNOW GOD (Deuteronomy )
Having established that to “know” God is to obey God, we now are commanded to “cleave” to (or attach ourselves to) those who know (that is, obey) God.
For those who seem to forget easily, Matthew 5:19 tells us that whoever does and teaches the least commandment shall be called greatest in heaven, and whoever does not do, and teaches against, the least commandment shall be called least in heaven. So let us not delude ourselves (and others) that to obey God is distilled down to 2, or 10, commandments. Jesus, being Jewish, is referring to obeying Torah, in its minutiae, and to teach it also. Those who therefore say they will cleave to Jesus rather than to Torah are speaking not of Jesus but of some entity who is against Torah. Let’s see now, who would be against Torah? Oh yes, Satan. Need more proof? In the wilderness, Jesus battled, and defeated, Satan by quoting thrice from Torah. Not able to withstand the commandments of God, and those loyal to those commandments, Satan was forced to flee, and Jesus was thereby proven. You say Jesus doesn’t need any proof, that he is self-sustaining? Why then does Christianity make it that Jesus was, and had to be, perfect in the Law? Yes, I understand the thought process, that Jesus was perfect in the Law in order to be a sacrifice for sin. But why was that the process? Why instead was Jesus not sanctified by other means, such as many fasts or sacrifices or miracles? If Christianity is to confess itself, it must admit that keeping the Law is the only thing that makes a body acceptable to God. If Jesus had not kept the Law, God would have rejected Jesus.
But as Christ stated plainly, it’s not even enough that Jesus kept the Law. He also had to teach the Law, in order to stay within the parameters of Matthew 5:19. In order to be called the greatest in Heaven, Jesus was bound to keep the smallest commandment, and teach it also. To “teach” is to have pupils, those who will learn and carry forth the learning. Those who will do as they are taught. Clearly, to be called greatest in Heaven is to be a teacher of the least commandments of Torah. But one cannot be a teacher, or called greatest, if one does not follow Torah and teach it also. Anyone therefore who does not teach others to follow the least commandments of Torah is not a follower of Christ.
Christianity teaches otherwise. Christianity teaches that Jesus “fulfilled” commandments so that, for whatever reason, you wouldn’t have to fulfill those commandments. Christianity creates a system which actually favors and rewards those who specifically ignore and disobey certain commandments. For example, eating of unclean foods. Let us say you consider the commandments to refrain from eating unclean foods as a “least” commandment. You are still obliged under Matthew 5:19, and the commandments themselves, to refrain from eating unclean foods. Let us say you believe even further, that Christ’s death and blood, for whatever reason, have washed away such commandments. Are you saying Matthew 5:19 is a lie? Because if Christ’s death and blood wash away any commandment, no matter how small, it means Christ teaches against that commandment, no matter how small. If this is what you’re saying, you make Christ a liar and a demon. Let’s say you believe that when Christ said, “it’s not what goes in the mouth, it’s what comes out,” He was signaling that all foods are now kosher. Does that include human corpses? Why not? “It’s not what goes in the mouth..” You’ll say, “Oh, come on, be serious and have some common sense.” Why is what I said not common sense? If it’s not what goes in the mouth which corrupts a man, then eating human flesh does not corrupt a man. Do you see? If you change even the smallest jot or tittle, the Law is corrupted to the point where cannibalism is possible. Jesus said He did not come to change the Law, not a jot or tittle (Matthew -18), and this upholds my point. So, Christian, ask yourself, why does Christianity teach to change jots and tittles?
A true follower of Jesus is a follower of Torah. Such a follower is a student, a doer, and a teacher, who fulfills not only Matthew 5:19 but also this commandment 613.13.
But it is not enough to simply rely on your own opinions and interpretations of Torah. Such a watered-down Torah eventually, through the generations, becomes tepid, even non-existent. Like any law, Torah must be implemented the same in all society, or else there is favoritism in the Law, much as tax law favors those who have the money to lobby for exemptions. There can be no exemptions for eating unclean foods in a Torah society, which means also in a Christian society. Any society that permits eating of unclean foods, as defined by Torah, is not a Christian society, but a pagan society. Add in just a few more elements, such as tattoos and unlawful sexual practices, and you have, by its own permissiveness, a completely non-Torah and non-Christian society.
People ask me, “Tom, do you follow every commandment? Are you perfect?” Naturally, I am not perfect and am not able to follow every commandment perfectly, and this causes such people to laugh at me. Yet, they are not laughing at me, but laughing at Torah. I am but a messenger of Torah. To laugh directly at me can only be to laugh at a clumsy messenger, but this is not their aim. No, they denigrate the messenger so the message itself is destroyed. If the messenger is not perfect, they feel justified to call the messenger a hypocrite and to continue in their desires, whether of hedonism, corruption, savagery, or crime. So it is important that Jesus was perfect in the Law. Not to sanctify a self-sacrifice for the benefit of more sinning. No, it is important that Jesus was perfect in the Law so that the messenger cannot be called a hypocrite.
And we see indeed that the most virulent anti-Christians hold up Christ as the example to which we should all aspire, even if the example is one of permissiveness. Yes, Christ is upheld even by pagans, not because Christ was a pagan, but because Christians say he was a pagan. That’s right, Christians say Christ came to unshackle them from Torah in order to set them on a life of righteousness by faith. But if you say Christ came to unshackle you from Torah, even in the tiniest fashion, you make Christ to be, according to Matthew , least, and, in reality, a pagan. How can Christ be “the greatest” if you say He came to take you away from Torah? If this is your Christianity, no wonder the pagans uphold Christ to justify their sins!
Today’s lesson is to cleave to those who know God, that is, who obey Torah. For if we do not obey Torah, we disobey both God and Christ. And if we say Christ did away with any part of Torah, we are beneath contempt, using the greatest teacher to justify our least desires.

613.12: TO LEARN AND TEACH TORAH (Deuteronomy 6:7)
The hardest lesson for any Christian to learn, yes, for any Jew to learn, yes, for any person to learn, is that the entire duty of man is to fear God and keep His commandments (Ecclesiastes 12:13). Jesus Christ tells us that whoever does the least commandment AND teaches others to do so is greatest in, or called greatest from, heaven (either way is excellence). Why is this the hardest lesson?
When a person catches fire for God, the first thing he or she endeavors to do is consult the holy book, and specifically to consult the “rules of the game” (The Law) to see if it matches up with (a) the teachings from the pulpit and (b) what one already believes. When it is therefore discovered in the Law of God, the commandments, the rules, that certain foods, clothing, hairstyles, lifestyles, sexual gratifications, and other things are forbidden, a great falling-away occurs. A rebellion against commandments begins immediately. Bargaining ensues. A search for those who think more like you and less like the Law is started. You don’t want to feel alone so you seek out like-minded people who dilute the commandments to your specific gravity. Thus, denominations spring from religions, and sects from denominations, all according to how much or how little the Law of God is applied. Those who believe the Law is the primary thing are called orthodox, conservative or fundamentalist, those who think the Law secondary or unimportant are called liberal or reformed. Amongst these name-tags are further distillations and re-naming to both satisfy flocks and distract arguments.
But Judaism IS Law, both in Torah and Talmud. Deviations from Law do not reflect “evolution” from primitiveness, but rather regression to pre-Torah, or savagery, according to doctrine and tradition. Law is that which keeps the base components of man at bay. Any deviation is therefore back to more carnal and dangerous man, who steals, murders, commits adultery, worships Baal, puts the children through the fires of Moloch, and so forth. Those who argue that “least commandments” serve no purpose other than cultic identity or organization are deflecting their own inability or unwillingness to follow commandments by purposely calling them antiquated and/or surpassed. Their desires are more important to them than God’s desires.
The Christians have taken this mindset and canonized it with many commentaries and apologists. They excuse behavior outside the Law by both neutralizing the Law with the blood of Christ, and by denigrating those who speak out against such neutralizing. But the blood of Christ cannot negate the words of Christ, and Matthew 5:19 is indisputable: “Whoever does and teaches the least commandment shall be called greatest; whoever does not do the least commandment and teaches others likewise shall be called least.” So while the Christian may feel empowered by many excuses to eat pork, Christ says otherwise, and it cannot be twisted that “it’s not what goes in the mouth, it’s what comes out” means anything contrary, otherwise we may eat the flesh even of living human beings. THAT is the natural progression from excusing unlawful behavior. As well, those who invoke Law over permissiveness are called “legalist” and other naughty words. But if this is true, to be a legalist is bad, then Jesus is bad, since His entire basis was lawful living, legal arguments, and Torah teaching. If He did anything other than this, He could never be the perfect being which Christians say He is. So why is it Christ must be perfect, but Christians can be imperfect, in fact almost MUST be imperfect to satisfy others of the flock?
The answer is simple. Like Jews who each bacon and get tattoos, Christians who eat bacon and get tattoos feel either entitled or rebellious. The words of the commandments which exist in the Old Testament attached to the New Testament exist literally. But those who desire bacon and tattoos must pretend they don’t exist, or else make excuses why it’s OK to do that which is not OK. Rebelliousness is the Jewish method for fulfilling desires. Jews don’t deny Torah, they just break it. Entitlement is the Christian method. Christians don’t deny Torah either, they just pretend that Jesus Christ wrestles and argues with God on their behalf, like an ACLU lawyer defending the indefensible. When this imagery fails, they say Christ is God, which means God can do whatever He likes including changing His Law. But the Law itself states that nothing shall ever be added or taken away from the Law, and Jesus Christ agrees that He came not to destroy the Law, neither a jot nor tittle (portions of letters). So if the Law states it is eternal and unchangeable, and Christ agrees and reiterates, how can the Christian claim ability to break the commandments and still not be subject to punishments for breaking commandments?
We will not go into “grace” here, but will only say that God’s Grace is to absolve sinners who repent, not those who keep on sinning, whether they “accept Christ” or not.
The commandment to learn and teach Torah is part of this puzzle. You are COMMANDED to teach Torah, but how can you without hypocrisy if you openly disobey? You cannot. The commandment is not fulfilled if you yourself do not obey. This is what made Jesus Christ great. He lived it AND taught it. Many, many Christians do not emulate Jesus but rather admire Him from a distance. This is incorrect. The proper Christianity is the lawful Christianity just as the proper Judaism is the lawful Judaism. And yes, that includes commandments which seem discriminatory or hurtful to certain groups of people with whom you wish to make peace.
613 COMMANDMENTS! Today, #11.
One of the more deviant ideas of Western society is to revere the young. Granted, giving too much respect to youth is probably a worldwide phenomenon, but I wish to focus upon the problems I can see and know.
begin with a basic question: Who Shall Run Your Society? In my case, I mean the
Another problem in society is the focus on the economic value of youth. Advertising geared towards youth is in many ways propaganda against prevailing society. What’s wrong with that, you may ask. To which I counter, the very society which is attacked by such advertising is the same society which supports that freedom of speech. So why would advertising subvert its own foundation? Well, this may shock you, but some people are revolutionary communists, and their method is to cause unrest among those who feel oppressed. Never mind that when Marx wrote his papers the oppressed were the industrialized West, which today are the leisure class en masse which depends on the oppressed of China and other nations to produce their goods. What did I just say? I said that the so-called revolutionary youth of Western society are living the “life of Riley” but seem hell-bent to destroy their own good fortune. Mind-boggling, isn’t it, that the goals of Marx, for the lower classes to enjoy a better lifestyle has been achieved in Europe and America, yet youth and others are continually being prodded to, and falling for, Marxism. It’s quite amazing to watch youth flush their wonderful futures down the drain. And for what? The ungrateful hordes of Middle-Eastern “refugees” which flood their countries and attack their culture and people? Or invaders from other countries who say they migrate for economic reasons but then form enclaves to change society to their own worse ways? It’s hard to give these invaders credit for victory when the people they invade are not even fighting back! And why aren’t they fighting back? Youth has been brainwashed to feel guilt towards, rather than honor for, what they have, and those who gave, and defended, those things they have.
Seeing these factual truths, we can more readily understand why Torah commands honor for the old and wise. The old and wise have lived through many crises and learned how to preserve society for the better, and to defend themselves from enemies. The old and wise are not given to fanciful notions of utopia and overreaching altruism which are proven by experience and logic to be destructive to all people. The old and wise are cautious to implement new ideas which upend the security of the nation. Of course, the battle-cry and zest of youth is to constantly seek the new thing, to overturn the conventions. Basically, to rebel is natural for the teenager. But natural or hormonal rebellion is not good cause to willy-nilly change society “just to see” how it works out. Such changes are generally not good and are rarely easily-reversible. The old and wise are the keepers of the flames of logic, security, and opportunity. You can argue against this one or that one, this ancient thing or that ancient thing, but “don’t fix what ain’t broken” is a good rule of thumb. But where things are broken, youth is still too impetuous and inexperienced for solutions.
OK, let’s say you are now ready to preserve your society under Torah. We need to define terms. Since commandment is law, and trespass of commandment is sin, we want to know exactly what to do and for whom, not only to do what’s right but also to know what exactly is wrong. What is “old and wise”? Certainly, older is one part of this, meaning youth is meant to defer under Torah. Oh, they don’t like THAT, do they? But is it merely age-driven? No, one must also be “wise” to earn this respect. What is “wise”? No arguments are necessary here. Torah always refers “wisdom” to itself. That is, whoever follows Torah is wise. But also, whoever follows Torah with an eye to mercy rather than to blood is wiser still. This does not mean mercy overrides Torah. Tolerance of sin in the name of mercy is the cause of almost all our ills, and youth, sad to say, is the leader of such anti-Torah tolerance. In fact, they tolerate almost everything EXCEPT Torah, because they are impetuous, inexperienced, and willing to experiment on society without understanding irreversible consequences.
The commandment tells us to “honor” the old and wise. What is “honor”? The minimum standard appears to be that one stands up when an old and wise person enters the room. But not every old person is wise, and not every wise person is older, so how do we know? Supposing an unfamiliar old person enters the room, is the younger person commanded to stand up “just in case” that older person is wise? Obviously, this can get quite out-of-hand very quickly and cause a rebellion against standing up, that is, against honoring the old and wise, that is, against Torah. So, some moderation or clarification is necessary so that our days are not taken up with simply standing up every time an older person enters the room. This is a case for sages, and such things are open to some debate. But at least we are talking about preservation of society and respect for wisdom. The opposite is that we do not honor anyone unless we want to honor, and thereby we disrespect and ignore wisdom and experience. Naturally, if society is failing, there is a call for reform, but the case is more often that society fails due to disrespect against law, not unity for law. Society fails due to mindless arrogance, not mindful respect.
To take it into the realm of modern parlance, the problem with “white privilege” is not that it enjoys the fruits of its labors, the problem is that it believes it can exist without honor for the old and wise. The Marxist equates such “white privilege” as the reason for oppression of the working class, making “white privilege” code for middle-class wealth, which the Marxist wishes to destroy. But Torah makes clear that middle-class wealth is protected, and to thereby enjoy that wealth is not against Torah. Marxism cannot therefore coexist with Torah. Youth which espouses Marxism is the impetuous and inexperienced youth which is hell-bent with its own “white privilege” that believes it can sustain its lifestyle while destroying it! Talk about blindness and taking things for granted!
The commandment to honor the old and wise, even at its minimum to stand up in their presence, thus forces youth to acknowledge past wisdom and present success, to honor and respect it, even if unwise youth cannot stop thinking about some utopian future.

613.10: IMITATE THE GOOD & UPRIGHT WAYS OF GOD (Deut. 28:9)
Most people think nothing of God until they do something wrong. When I say “most people” I mean most Christians, most Jews, most Muslims, most Hindus, most Buddhists, most atheists – everybody. Some people admire the Muslim call to prayer five times a day, but are these people thinking of God, or of their aching knees? Does prayer call initiate prayer? And if it does, what good does it do a person? Is every Christian following the Word of God? Heck, are the majority of Christians even following their own doctrine? For that matter, do Hindus enjoy their caste system? Are Buddhists really all that peaceful, inside or out? Are Jews more lawful, whether they pray or don’t pray? Are atheists less inclined to be virulent or ideological by refraining from prayer? The answer to all these questions is a resounding NO.
Naturally, the exceptions to the rule, probably 20% of the population of any belief system, will object to my characterization of their belief system, since they are the “good example” for themselves and the rest of their flock, as it were. They consider themselves to be following the good and upright ways determined by either a Good Book, their elders, or their conscience. They consider themselves to be archetypes, even prophets, of the religion or cause. This applies whether that person is activist or pacifist, believer in God or not.
What gives a person this ego? What nature urges a person to stand forward to protest on behalf of his own actions? Or, in the case of the altruist in the moment, on behalf of someone else’s actions who may be admired? Why does the Muslim protect the actions of Mohammed? Why does the Buddhist bristle for Siddhartha? Why does the Jew rail for Moses or Abraham? Why does the Christian defend Jesus? And why does the atheist point the average believer in God towards the more humanist viewpoints of any Good Book or prophet thereof?
Simply, every person knows this world can do better. Whether it is to cease conflict, feed the hungry, or to mind our own business, every ego which stands forward in such a way does so to defend the idea of what it means to be “good and upright.” Naturally, these different religions and belief systems exist due to the varying nature of what is “good and upright.” People do not seem to agree. Whether we speak of the right foods to eat, the wrong sexual partners, the manner of wearing hair, there are huge differences between many faiths, indeed between the sects or denominations of many faiths, including atheism.
One thing we do all seem to agree upon is the Golden Rule. Even if one believes he is permitted by his own conscience to murder, or steal, or rape, or lie, or otherwise decimate, no person wants it done to him. No criminal allows it to himself. No adulterer allows it to herself. No Muslim wants jihad on his own. Not even a masochist wants carnage if it is not pleasurable. In other words, when bad things happen to our loved ones, all of a sudden we want law and order.
But where is this cry for “law and order” in the abstract? Why do we not in advance promote law and order, to prevent such chaos? Why do we not demand that the government follows the Constitution? Or, if we live without a constitution, to institute one? Why is government corruption ignored? Why do we look away from evil? Why do we stand by while our freedoms are ravaged?
Quite simply, we are selfish creatures. Though given by God the power to plan and build a future, and to promote that future by construction of better rules, and enforcement of those rules, we rather are more interested in our own desires, appetites, vanities. The mirror is more important, the belly more immediate, the sexual urges more demanding. And the more vainglorious our behavior, the more sedate and fey we become, easy prey for those with even fewer barriers to their whims. We become targets for savages and predators.
The best law and order, therefore, is not one which promotes individual liberties but rather one which promotes greater responsibility for those we elect, or otherwise have, as our leaders. Your individual liberty is not as important as the accountability of your congressmen, for example. If your president is a tyrant, what good does it do you to be free in your desires? In fact, those freedoms shall be short-lived once the tyrant takes note of you as a danger to the community. The tyrant is like you, interested only in his own appetite and liberty, but unlike you the tyrant shall smash you to attain more or keep the status quo.
Obviously, those smashed are angry and want an end to tyranny. However, if the smashed are in the business of setting up an alternate society within a perfectly sound society, a subculture, and this subculture is a danger to the perfectly sound society, the smashing may be warranted. This is the rub when it comes to freedom: to keep it, someone must protect what we have. There must be a conservatism to preserve what is good.
the Judeo-Christian, this highest good comes from the Law of God, which is
Torah. The Constitution of the
We reach now an impasse to our agreement. No one will argue that society requires defending, but they shall argue what society should be. If we follow Torah, society is defended by God. If we do not follow Torah, it is defended by dedicated servants to family and country. If family and country is demeaned and attacked from within, that society is doomed. Truly, without the upright ways of God, which are His words of Law and Order, that is, Torah, we hinge entirely to the loyalty of our military, to which we owe great thanks and honor. But what drives these men and women to defend society when the society itself attacks them? It is their inner loyalty to God. The atheist cannot deny this, for there is no atheist, only the person who hates those who pretend to love God, for the atheist believes himself, after all, to be good and upright in the eyes of God.

613.9: DO NOT TEST THE WORD OF GOD (Deuteronomy )
Society today is imploding for one reason: law and order is being tested every second. Now, you might say, “Oh come on, Tom, law and order has been tested since the beginning of law and order.” Yes, true, but isn’t it also true that societies, entire civilizations, have crumbled due to law and order crumbling? You might say, “No… many societies were doing just fine until they met their end under volcanic ash, or at the hands of conquistadors.” Well then, if these societies were doing just fine until outside disaster struck, were they or weren’t they following the rules of law and order, according to their society? In other words, when the volcano erupted, or the conquistador landed, were these societies running well or not? You see, I can make a counter-argument for every argument that societies do not disintegrate due to inner weakness but instead to outside invasion or armageddon. For example, were those who suffered doom at the hands of the Pompeii volcano just minding their own business as the volcanic molten ash rained down on them, or were they unprepared in arrogance, filth, and civil war? Will we ever really know? For another example, were the Aztecs, Incas, and Mayans living peaceful coexistent lives when the brown-skinned Spaniard came to rape and pillage, or were they involved in different levels of disregard for human life or personal property? Here, we have some evidence, but maybe not enough to come to a pertinent conclusion.
let us not ask too many hypothetical questions about former societies which no
longer exist, when we have today to worry about. At this exact moment, Five Evils are vying
for control of planet Earth: Corruption (New World Order), Savagery (Islam,
race war), Collectivism (communism, socialism), Hedonism (perversion, drug
culture), and Crime (cartels, syndicates).
It is an interesting time in human history, unlike any we’ve ever
witnessed, experienced, or heard about.
Not ONLY are these five factions duking
it out for the resources and nuclear weapons, but there are unheard-of methods
to do it. Oh yeah! Hedonism is spiraling into its own pit by
demanding public acceptance, to a degree never before heard, using government
as a weapon to have the “right” to inundate children with vice. Sure, under the guise, Crime uses these poor
souls to further their reach into human life and pocketbook. And for sure, Corruption LOVES the stoned and
oversexed people who are too distracted by their flesh to keep an eye on the treasury
and the weapons storehouse. MEANWHILE,

Don’t misunderstand me. I’m not saying that civilizations INSTANTLY disappear when Torah is not the Law of the land. It takes time, sometimes hundreds of years, for great societies to cease from the face of the planet. But disappear they will and MUST. There can be no society when multiculturalism is propagated, because it dilutes law and order by permitting enclaves of different and alien codes of law. There can be no coexistence when one set of people flout, break, and disregard the law of the majority. And if the government is on the side of the minority, there must be war, civil war, skirmishes, lawsuits, constitutional upheaval, media blitzes against the majority, and so forth. All ingredients which weaken a nation, making it ripe for dissolution or invasion. To test any law of ANY land destroys that land. Torah is no different.

613.8: FEAR THE LORD (Deuteronomy )
There are many people who say we ought not be afraid of God who fear God anyway. For example, New Agers who seek enlightenment, but who ignore the violent roots of their own tapestry, notably, the American Indian who fearfully sacrificed human life to the gods. Buddhists who believe their meditation is peace, but give little thought to the fears associated with karma, striving and reincarnation. Atheists who say they cannot respect a god who demands or causes fear, but who are only making an excuse to do as they please.
Let me be clear. When I say “atheist,” I mean “anti-theist,” someone against the tenets which strike the fear of God into men. A true atheist is more like an agnostic, who doesn’t know if God exists or not, but still lives according to his own rules, weak though they may be. An true atheist also has fears, that God may exist after all, that science doesn’t have all the answers, that the invisible things we take for granted, like personality and emotions, which have no quantification, spell doom for the pure materialist. An anti-theist, on the other hand, has an agenda, which is to refute God in order to install some other rule of law. Since the rule of law always depends on fear, whether the jail cell, or the avenger of grievances, the anti-theist is not against fear, but wishes to be feared. The anti-theist rails against the punishments found in Torah, the Law of God, but then offers similar punishments against those who are for Torah. It is more than hypocrisy here. It is a struggle between God and man. Logically, we should always choose God. For though God’s Law cannot be changed, the tyrant may change the rules as his fears or desires sway him. The anti-theist “atheist” therefore does not offer freedom from fear, only a different fear, in fact, more fear.
Christian also preaches against fearing God.
Though the Bible he carries says explicitly, and commands, to fear God,
the Christian thinks only in terms of “love.”
The Law of God is transmuted into the “law of love” for the sake of
calming nerves, angers, and fears. Those
afraid of commandments are assured that Jesus is not seeking obedience but
rather a form of loyalty. But loyalty
without obedience is false loyalty.
There is not loyalty if the leader is not obeyed. The leader of Christianity is ostensibly
Christ. But Christians disobey Christ
every minute of every day. In Matthew
5:19, Christ says that whoever breaks and teaches against the least commandment
shall be called least, and whoever keeps the least commandment and teaches it
shall be called greatest. If you say
Christ taught to disregard any commandment, you say that Christ is least. Is Christ least? I should think not! Does the death of Christ remove the necessity
to keep many commandments? No! To say it does teaches against keeping
“least” commandments. Why do Christians preach such things which are against
their own New Testament? I will tell you
why. They fear fear. Franklin Delano Roosevelt famously said, “We
have nothing to fear but fear itself.” But he meant that we should not be lax to act
due to complete paralysis.
Many Jews also do not fear God, and therefore arrogantly, or dismissively, do not keep commandments. The reluctance to keep kosher is perhaps the most obvious rebellion here. They eat shrimp and crab and even ham, and say, “Why did God make it if not to eat?” To which the answer is clear, he made it so you would not eat it. And if God made the shrimp for the believer to eat, did he make the mouse also for the believer to eat? Can you eat human flesh and drink human blood? Why not? Is it “common sense” or disgust which keeps you from it? If it is forbidden, it is forbidden. Did God not also create poisonous plants which nevertheless taste good? Did God not create cholesterol, and therefore should you not eat until you burst your arteries? We obviously are not speaking about what is commanded, but what you desire.
But also, like everyone else, Jews desire to fit in. They seek to fit into a society which historically rejects them. They believe they will be liked, accepted, respected if they can hide or minimize their Jewish heritage. The Jew is often more afraid of looking Jewish than of looking non-Jewish. In other words, the Jew fears men more than God. To be sure, Jewish life can be complicated and challenging, even without the commandments, but to avoid the challenges out of fear is not fearing God, it is fearing men.
And the Muslim? He fears God, but so much that he believes his passion is more important. This is a temperament issue, which creates a climate of fearing these men rather than God. It is an old problem which many cultures pass through. It is barbarism mixed with theology. The barbarism is not in Torah but in the Muslim administration of it, which rightly belongs to the Jews, which ownership neither the Christians nor the Muslims can claim through any deficit of the Jews.
In sum, the fear of God ought to create our courts, our cultures and our free societies, but we instead see too much tolerance and rebellion on one hand, too much fervor and bloodiness on the other. It is not the fault of Torah that men cannot simply follow and obey. It is not the fault of God for fashioning man with these behaviors. God has made no error in either the Law or in His creation. We are given free will, and are free to disobey, but not without repercussions and acquisition of sin.
Perhaps I've written too many words on this subject. If so, hear this simple thing: We keep the commandments because God said so.

613.7: LOVE GOD WITH ALL YOUR MIGHT (Deuteronomy 6:5)
There are at least two major parts to this extremely important commandment, which is often overlooked as a commandment, even by the best of intentions.
The first part of this commandment is to love God. Did you know it was a commandment? Did you know you have no choice? “But wait, how can love be commanded?” Ah, but do you know what “love” is? Let me tell you. Love is sacrifice.
When we love someone, we give up something for them. Love your parents? You sacrifice resentments against them. Love your husband or wife? You sacrifice being with anyone else. Love your children? You sacrifice personal objectives. The amount you sacrifice equals the amount you love.
Sometimes we sacrifice too much. Psychologists run to label this sacrifice negatively. If you sacrifice for the sake of desire, you are labeled “obsessed.” If you sacrifice for the sake of need, you are labeled “co-dependent.” Sometimes if sacrifice becomes resentment, the relationship is called “toxic.” Naturally, categorization of sacrifice is dangerous.
For example, if you love to help people, you might sacrifice all, and become a champion, such as Mother Teresa. Was she “obsessed”? Most would say she was not obsessed, simply because it is tough to criticize someone that dedicated. Also, she was a champion. And it didn’t hurt her good name to be on the side of the poor. But of course, someone who champions the rich is called a lobbyist, not Mother Teresa. So, if you are seeking to avoid criticism in your sacrifice, in your love, it helps to pursue what others think is worthy. But, you may say, pfah!
It is said we cannot control who we love. This is true where is concerns emotions and chemical reactions. But sacrifice is an action. And actions are easier said and thought than done. But whereas we cannot quite control emotions and chemicals, we can control action. You may wake up one morning, and say, “I don’t love my wife today.” But if you treat her with respect, appreciate her actions, and do not cheat on her, you have loved her, whether you feel it or not. You do love her when you sacrifice your emotions for your action.
To love God is no different. You may wake up today and say, “I don’t like God” or even “I hate God” or perhaps “There is no God.” But if you treat God with respect, appreciate God’s actions, and do not cheat on God, you love God. Let’s examine this.
(1) To treat God with respect is to respect God’s work. There are two forms of God’s work to respect. One is the planet we live on, and the people who live on the planet. When we respect there is a creation, and creations, we respect God. To respect the work itself is a bit too complicated to discuss here, as people have varying ideas of what it is to respect the Earth or people. The other form of God’s work to respect is the Law of God. There is a Law of God. There must be, and it is one Law. He did not make a different Law for different people, even if some commandments are meant for a certain group, such as women. When you respect God, you respect His Law. Jesus in Matthew 5:19 said that the greatest is one who keeps the least commandment and teaches it. This is the highest respect for God. Regardless of your emotions for God on any given day, you strive to keep and teach the commandments. Not your will, but His.
(2) To appreciate God’s actions is, at minimum, not to look down upon them. Where it concerns people, this can be difficult, because people in general are disappointing, especially in their views on societal cohesiveness. Where it concerns the Earth, this is often easier, although, again, people differ regarding how to preserve it. Where it concerns God’s Law, appreciation means not to despise the Law to the point where you teach against it. Teaching against the least commandment is blasphemy, to be avoided. Again, in Matthew 5:19, Jesus said that whoever does not keep the least commandment and teaches against it, this person is the worst (“least”).
(3) To not cheat on God is to have no other gods before Him. This is easy if you follow His Law. To sacrifice is love, and therefore loyalty is measured by performance of duty, no matter how you feel about it.
This is the short story on love and loving God.
But now, how can it be commanded to love with all your heart, soul, and might? Your heart is your feeling. Your soul is your intention towards God. Your might is your action. The key is that “your heart” is different than others, as is “your soul” and “your might.” Your personal abilities are different from everyone else’s, from the day you are born. Only you and God know your heart and soul, and sometimes even you don’t know them, only God does. Therefore, one cannot judge the heart and soul of another, not between persons, not in court. Intent is difficult to prove. But God knows. He created your heart and soul, so he knows your ultimate capacity. Furthermore, every day is a challenge. Your heart cannot be expected to perform at the same level every day without fail. Your intent cannot be measured the same every day. Thus, “your heart” and “your soul” is what you can do right now.
But “your might” is easier to measure. Your physical capacity can be observed, whether you are whole or disabled. Your actions can therefore be decided as “all” or “not all” of your might, based on what you can actually do. If you are able, therefore, to keep a commandment, and do not keep it, there must be a judgment from God, based on where you are today, whether you were unable or merely lazy, or rebellious.
Fear not, however. God is merciful to forgive if you ask forgiveness. Perhaps the hardest thing to do is to admit you are wrong and say you are sorry. This is hard enough between people, harder between a person and the Lord. Therefore, if you do ask forgiveness, you have done a hard thing. But, we cannot simply not do, and then ask to be forgiven. We must try. We must actually try with all our heart, soul, and might. It’s not a suggestion, it’s a commandment. God is not a human being, and therefore He can see, where others cannot, just how much you really tried, and He appreciates you and your efforts in ways no person can. This is key.

613.6: GOD IS ONE (Deuteronomy 6:4)
Today we tackle the easiest of commandments, that God is one. Oh wait, the Christians who profess to believe in the One God have chosen to think of Him in several parts. Why? Obviously, it’s easier to relate to a God who has a human side, but relating to God is not the purpose of Law or gospel. The purpose of Law is to follow it if you are part of that society/community. The purpose of gospel is to tell everyone how great life would be if we would just follow that Law. Unfortunately, the Christians have glommed onto the shiny part of that purpose, which is the end result, which is salvation. They do not believe the gospel is to spread the word of God, that is, the Law. They believe the gospel is to spread the WORKS of God, which is salvation, as if dispensation is the purpose of conversion. As if God is seeking salesmen rather than participants and contributors. As if God is seeking politicians and not citizens.
If it seems like the Law of God is fascist, it is. Society cannot live in coexistence very long before differences are noted and the hive cleansing begins. With some races or cultures, this cleansing is harsh, with others a bit more polished. But the purpose of the cleansing is purity, which is what the Law commands, and, really, what the gospel commands. What would Jesus do? Jesus would first ask you nicely to abstain from breaking the Law. Then Jesus would come back as the judge of the world and, well, you know the rest. So if Jesus does not seek coexistence, why does Christianity?
For some reason, Christianity believes Jesus came to perfect the Law rather than to perfect people IN the Law. The Law does not need perfecting. To say it does means God is imperfect. Worse, it means Jesus is better than God. Jesus himself says that Jesus is only worthy of glory if he does what the father asks. This does not mean random requests, or even the crucifixion. It means that Jesus is only worthy of glory when Jesus follows the Law. When Jesus follows the Law, He and the Father are one. One mind, one action, one culture, one hegemony, one dominance. No coexistence among differing cultures or laws. No Samaritan dogs, no Gentiles. There is neither Greek nor Jew under Christ… only the lawful. One Law, one people. In a word, fascism.
But GOOD fascism. A strong hand keeps the community safe, clean, healthy. A strong hand does not permit pagan ways or outside cultures to take over. Perhaps there is a temporary tolerance for the stranger passing through, but there is no place, according to Law, for idolatry, polytheism, male homosexuality, and a myriad of other things. So saith the Law. So saith Jesus (Matthew , as always).
To therefore break God into three (or any number) is to imply that the parts are necessary. They are not necessary. God is the savior. God is the spirit. God is the maker of the law. None may change Him, or change His Law. He made no mistakes, and any perceived are the error or desires of the human mind and heart. The changing of Law is the deference to paganism and wickedness, to perversion and evil. Either this is true or it is not. If you therefore say Jesus changed the Law, you say Jesus is a pagan, wicked, perverse or evil. Is He? How can He be?
Even the Christian doctrine says Jesus was perfect in the Law. If so, how can He break any commandment or teach anyone to break any commandment? He cannot. How can He change the Law and say He is perfect in it? He cannot. Only the desires of pagans change God’s Law, and not through Jesus, but only through themselves. Christ says, “Many will say they did many wonderful works in my name, but in the last days I will say I do not know them, and they shall be banished to outer darkness, with wailing and gnashing of teeth.” What does this mean? It means don’t change the Law, or else.
I pick on Christianity because it is the fiercest defender of the Bible, yet refuses to do what it says, or to follow Christ in His own lawfulness. Changing God to three parts is sort of a panacea for this ailment, as it humanizes God, softens Him to “understand” sin, and give a free ride just for acknowledging sin. But that’s not enough.
God is One. There is only one. God is merciful but only to those who come to Him. You cannot come to Him without also obeying Him. He does not bend to you, you bend to Him.
Naturally, this easily applies also to the pantheon religions, the Greeks, the Romans, the Teutonic, who had a god for every happenstance. Whoever today still believes there is a god for every natural event or human activity simply cannot bend to One God. These people require differing gods to bicker so they may feel secure in the fallibility of their gods. Such gods are not only fallible but also breakable. Our One God is infallible and unbreakable, not in parts or personalities, not in any error with bickering or wrestling. Our invisible God cannot be burned as wood idols, or broken like stone idols.
One means indivisible. Think about it.
613 COMMANDMENTS! Today, #4-5.
613.4-5: HALLOWED BE THY NAME (Leviticus )
The commandments are to hallow God’s Name (positive) and to not profane His Name (negative), which are co-equal. You shall not profane, and you shall hallow, God’s Name.
What is God’s Name that we should not profane but instead hallow? Certainly, it does not mean the three letters G-O-D, which Jews normally hyphenate as G-d, as a form of respect. That’s fine, but does this fulfill a commandment? Well, it doesn’t break the commandment to spell the word G-d, but it’s not as if those who spell G-O-D have broken the commandment either. The word GOD is itself reverential when it is capitalized, for it means the one in charge, or the one and only. Then, is the name of God the tetragrammaton, in other words, JHVH? Certainly, the Jewish people forbid its use in reading from the Hebrew (which is spelled as, and sounds like, “yee-yeh”), though it is certainly written that way in Hebrew over and over again! Instead, they substitute “Adonai” but oddly speak it as “Ado-shem” or “Ha-Shem.” So the Jewish people, keepers of the Law, go out of their way to avoid saying God’s name, even though the tetragrammaton is written thousands of times in Torah and prayer books. Have they “hallowed” His name by protecting sounds from out of the mouth?
Naturally, other cultures will say that God belongs also to them, and they have their own pronunciations, sometimes sounding like “yee-yeh,” sometimes not. The Christian’s “Yahweh” and “Jehovah” are uses of the tetragrammaton, as is the Islamic “Allah,” both captures from the Hebrew in order to kidnap the Law of God.
But the use or non-use of God’s Name in conversation or prayer is not hallowing or profaning God’s Name. No, for once again we fall prey to the trivial while remaining ignorant of the reason for the commandment. For it is not the use of God’s Name which is forbidden or approved, but rather the invocation of God as an excuse for behavior and actions which are clearly against the Law of God. For example…
Saying that God approves suicide in any degree. Whether for mercy on the ailing, or for jihad in exploding oneself for glory, you committed suicide, period. It is intentional killing of the self, which is murder of the self, and murder is always forbidden. The idea that God will look the other way due to the extent of the misery which the cancerous patient endures is not true. God never looks the other way. That may sound harsh but it’s still true. Likewise, the jihadi who kills for “war” against the infidel has not engaged in warfare, but in a senseless killing of the self. “But, Tom… would you rather the jihad be carried out at all?” Of course not! But that’s not the point. The question is, does the jihadi who blows himself up for the glory of Allah hallow or profane God’s name? It is profane not only because it is murder, but also because this suicide was done in the name of God. There is certainly a difference between mercy killing and jihad, but the part which is suicide can nevertheless be extracted from both for observation. Mercy killing and jihad are not ethically equal, but the immoral act is equal to both, and profanes God’s name if He is invoked.
A less-dramatic example of profaning God’s name is the eating of pork. When the Jew and Muslim refrains, it is in accordance with the Law of God, and it is good. When the Christian eats pork, there is no special permission and no change in Law. The Law does not permit it, and Christ said He did not come to change a bit of the Law. So how is it that the Christian took Christ’s words that he wasn’t changing the Law and made them into that he changed the Law? Simply, the early church made compromises with pagans for the sake of expanding the congregation. This is not conjecture, it’s in the New Testament. Paul made many compromises with non-Jewish congregants, to the point that he took their side against the actual religion, which was Torah. The Christian might protest, “It’s not what goes in the mouth, it’s what comes out!” (paraphrasing Christ). If that is so, the Christian should not be against me eating human flesh. “Don’t be absurd, Tom!” I’m not, I’m taking the breaking of the commandment, and the invocation of the paraphrase, to its logical conclusion. If it’s not what goes in the mouth that counts, any number of sins may be perpetrated this way. The worst part is, they invoke Christ, who they say is fully-God/fully-man, to justify this sin. This is a profaning of God’s Name, using it in any degree to justify sin. This is blasphemy.
But there is something more. God’s “name” is as your name or my name. It has a reputation and a power. If someone says, “In the name of the king, I command thee…,” there is a power behind that command, and if the reputation is strong enough, it motivates. If someone says, “In the name of Allah, I do such-and-such,” it also carries weight. Now, due to jihad, the weight of such a statement is often fear, but not fear of God. This is because we know, through Torah, which commandments the jihadi breaks. In this case, the name of God, as it were, has power, but the reputation is of desperation, which ends in murder. In a similar vein, the Christian says, “In the name of Jesus…” but follows up with many pagan rituals and actions, not the least of which is tolerance of sin, including abortion, male homosexuality, desecration, and blasphemy.
“But, Tom, what would you have us do?” Look, I realize that in the end, as it says in Revelation, God will have to destroy because we have profaned and profaned, so that the very dust of the Earth carries overbearing and overflowing sin which must be burned out. The very elements must be melted and then reconstituted. But just because the good book says it ends in annihilation doesn’t mean I have to accept it without a fight. I admire any religion which has the guts to tell the world, “No! Do not profane God’s name.” If the Muslim fanatics were not murderers, rapists, and hypocrites, they might have something. But as it is, they have made it worse, by profaning God’s name in the name of saving God’s name from being profaned!
How then should we hallow God’s name? First, His Law. Make it part of your life. Second, His promises. Make it a point to not only obey the Law but also to repent for your sins, for redemption. He is Good and Faithful to cleanse if we ask for His Grace and forgiveness. The commandment to keep Yom Kippur is proof of that. Third, we should not seek to sanctify our actions in His name, neither war nor suicide nor killing nor eating. Indeed, all of our righteousness is like a filthy rag, but… that doesn’t mean we get a pass, or that God looks the other way, or that we can blame God because He made us this way. Even if this is a grand experiment, we, the subjects, have some responsibility to comport to what God expects from us, or at least hopes for us. The scientist does not take the blame if the culture in the Petri dish fails to perform as planned, he merely throws it out and starts over. Do not blame God for making you this way. Do not curse God for the Law, which is His finest. Do not spit on life, which He made. Do not think God is not involved, for He is mindful of all things. Do not think there is no God, for you do not want to find out how very wrong you are here, for God is a reality, not a hope (see 603.1).

613.3: BLASPHEMY! (Exodus 22:27, Leviticus 24:16)
We have a mistaken notion of blasphemy. We think it is saying something a bit cynical or mean about God, or something nasty about religion, or even a denial of Jesus Christ. As for Jesus, he said, “You can blaspheme me (the son of Man) but don’t blaspheme the Holy Spirit, for that is the unforgivable sin” (Mark ). Why is blaspheming the Holy Spirit the unforgivable sin?
Unforgivable sin is part of the doctrine for Jews (any deliberate sin), Catholics (a multitude of things), Protestants (not accepting Jesus), Muslims (shirk), and Buddhists (anantarika-karma). Each of these has a thing in common, which is the deliberate premeditated act. Now, due to our selfish and arrogant ways, we tend to think our own deliberate sins are much less offensive to God than the deliberate sins of others. This is called HYPOCRISY and double standard. Obviously, God does not regard your sins, deliberate or otherwise, with any less mind of justice. In other words, God does not play favorites when it comes to sin. To teach therefore that God regards your sin as less egregious than the sin of another is to teach against the justice, or Spirit, of God. The Spirit of God, which created the universe, also created the Law of God for men. To teach therefore that the Spirit of God plays favorites with the Law, or regards your sin as “not as bad” as the other fellow’s sin, is to teach not only against the justice of God, but also against the justice of the Law of God.
In Matthew 5:19, Jesus solidifies this truth, when he says, “Whoever breaks the least commandment AND teaches against it shall be called least in heaven.” Take the meaning of “in heaven” any way you like, but if you break the least commandment in the Law of God AND teach against that least commandment, you are LEAST, that is, lowest of all things. Pretty bad.
Religions scramble to give selfish and arrogant humans
an answer to the question, “If I commit a deliberate
sin, am I doomed?” The Protestants say,
“The only unforgivable is not accepting Christ.” But that is NOT what Christ said in Matthew
5:19. He said you are in very bad shape
when you teach against the least
Jesus said that if you teach against the least commandment, you are the lowest. What is the “least commandment”? Why, whichever commandment you think is least! Do you think refraining from pork is the least commandment? Keep that to yourself! Teach against that commandment and you are lowest in God’s eyes. Do you think wearing a garment of wool and linen is no big deal? Don’t teach against that commandment, or you are the least in God’s eyes. Get the picture?
It is not that breaking a commandment of God is unforgivable. It is breaking the commandment and teaching to break the commandment, together, which is unforgivable. Everyone breaks commandments. It’s unavoidable. But to teach that what you did, deliberately against the commandment, God accepts, is not only wrong, it is the WORST thing you can do. It is arrogance. It is arrogance against the justice of God. No one is exempt from the justice of God, not even the person who believes He is exempt by accepting Jesus, Allah, dharma, an atonement, or any other thing. It may be you are acceptable to God, through your repentance, but this is dependent on not teaching against any least commandment.
The unforgivable sin is thus deliberate sin plus teaching that you are exempt from punishment for that deliberate sin, whether such exemption arises due to your accepting a token from God (such as Jesus) or your rejection of the entire theory of celestial justice (“God isn’t micro-managing” – “God forgives all” – “There is not God” – etc). This is blasphemy.
Blasphemy then, in its simplest definition, is teaching others that it is acceptable, even fine, to commit deliberate sins against the Law of God. Blasphemy is against God not when it is personal (“God is [this or that]”) but when it is about His business, which is the business of Law.
When the Christian therefore eats pork deliberately, it is a deliberate sin. Is this forgivable? Perhaps, but not, however, because the Christian accepted Jesus, or that Jesus made pork acceptable, but because the Christian is taught at the pulpit to accept such things. Such a Christian is ignorant, not deliberate. But, once a Christian is no longer ignorant, and learns Matthew 5:19, and sees that even the “least” commandment cannot be broken with impunity, and continues to eat pork, and teaches that it is acceptable to eat pork, that is unforgivable sin. That is blasphemy.
Why not give up the bacon? Apparently, bacon and pork are essential elements to good health. Of course, I’m being facetious. Rather, the Christian treats bacon and pork (and ham and shrimp and tattoos, and so on) as tokens of his faith. In other words, eating pork is evidence of the Christian’s faith in the redemption of Christ. In other words, Christ came to change the Law, or if He didn’t come specifically for that, it was a happy side-effect. None of this is true.
The least commandment, the one you think is stupid, the one you think is ridiculous, the one you think is overcome by the blood of Jesus, or His works, or your faith, is the one which Jesus Christ says is most important when it comes to the way you are viewed in heaven. He says also, “He who KEEPS the least commandment, AND teaches others to do so, shall be called GREATEST in heaven.” So, you see, it’s not a one-way street. It’s not just blasphemy for breaking and teaching against the least commandment, it is also high regard for keeping, and teaching to keep, the least commandment.
In a Torah society, blasphemy, when proven in a court of law, requires death as the penalty. Why? First, society cannot last long under a multiplicity of behaviors towards its Law. If one permits intentional breaking of commandments, one cannot also have a Torah society. So cultural domination is lost when blasphemy is permitted. Hegemony goes to the most forceful behavior. Death as a penalty is a deterrent against losing that hegemony. Second, God said so. Part of the commandment against blasphemy is death to the proven lawbreaker. To refrain from the punishment for blasphemy is to intentionally break that commandment. In other words, to not require death as the penalty for blasphemy is blasphemy. The commandments tell us that the judges have no choice when it comes to penalty, and are themselves worthy of whichever penalty they refuse to apply! Yes, Torah is tough on lawbreakers. So don’t break the law! But if you do, don’t teach it is OK to break that law!
For the Christian and Jew (if not the world), the commandments to keep and teach are Torah. We know this because Jesus was born Jewish, was circumcised, learned at the Temple, taught at the Temple, kept the Passover and other laws, and fought with the Pharisees and Sanhedrin over points of Torah, over legalities. We do not see Jesus commit any deliberate sin against Torah, nor is that His intention, and He certainly does not teach to break any commandment. How then does the Christian believe he may do what Christ did not do?

613.2: WHICH GOD? (Exodus 20:3)
Having satisfied that God does exist, in fact must exist, the next logical question is, Which God? There is no question that human history has provided a good number of deities from which to choose. Therefore, religions exist simultaneously, setting up confrontations and wars between different cultures and different countries, right? Not exactly.
where the culture is common, and the religion is fundamentally the same, there
have been great battles fought for dominance and dominion. Islam, for example, wars with itself, between
Sunni and Shia, to the death and with great
bloodshed, though both worship Allah and read Koran. Christianity has an innate rift between the
more ancient Catholicism and the newer Protestantism, but also early
Christianity fought with blood between Arius and Aristarchus, essentially over finer points of the trinity,
and Protestantism during the Reformation waged wars of splintering. Buddhism is not exempt either, having fought,
and continuing to fight, sectarian wars not only of culture (as between
war between the religions, this is more widespread in the literature. The Crusades between Christianity and Islam
comes immediately to mind. Islamic ideas of world domination, a constant struggle in
I have framed the issue this way initially in order to provoke the common response, that the inability of all humanity to choose one God for worship and religion has caused, and will cause, immeasurable trouble and innumerable death. Therefore, we hear that religion is bad. This is a false conclusion.
In the first place, religion is necessary. It is the organization of worship. Worship itself is necessary, to satisfy the innate urge of human beings who recognize the fact that God exists. To refrain from worship of God is to deny the science and math that God exists (see 613.1). Therefore, to refrain from religion is to either (1) believe that God, who exists, seeks no more than to be recognized as existing, or (2) not believe in the existence of God.
Regarding atheism, not believing in the existence of God, it is against science and math to hold such a belief. Therefore, the true nature of atheism cannot be superiority of intellect. Instead, atheism is the desire to be free from the limitations which God puts upon mankind, through His Law. For if there is a God, He has a Law. If we say God does not have a Law for mankind, we are hedonists. If we say God does have a Law for mankind, but we shall not obey it, we are hedonists. Even if we say God does have a Law for mankind , but we cannot be sure what is the Law, and therefore we are abstaining from obedience until the truth is known, we are hedonists. And certainly, to say there is no God is also to be a hedonist. For if no God, then no Law of God. What is a hedonist? Someone who puts their own pleasure above any law which limits that pleasure. A marijuana smoker is a hedonist when he imbibes where it is not legal. Under Torah, which we say is God’s Law, smoking marijuana is no sin, and therefore is not a hedonism against God. Smoking marijuana is only a hedonism under civil law. Male homosexuality, however, is always a hedonism, being against Torah, even if the civil law has decriminalized it in society. It is therefore that the male homosexual cannot abide under Torah, either forced by conscience to change his ways (whether born that way or not), or else forced by circumstances to struggle against Torah, whether that means to dilute Torah, to ignore Torah, or to actively fight against Torah. It becomes thus a choice between religion and irreligion, a war between religion and anti-religion. Where this war becomes embittered enough, there is death. Islam, for example, seeks out the homosexual to kill him, or her, publicly, as a matter of purity, and indeed it is a war against hedonism (Islamic hypocrisy notwithstanding). But (lest ye think it a one-way street) when atheism is in control, it is religion which suffers slaughter. The communist states, which take irreligion as one of their three main tenets, have persecuted the churches and executed many. The number of deaths which the communist states have in total committed (about 100 million) exceed by far the number of deaths committed in the name of God. And let us not forget the French Revolution. Atheism, or irreligion, cannot therefore be named as the logical or more humane alternative to religion. In fact, it is deadlier.
When John Lennon sings, "Imagine there's no heaven, it isn't hard to do, nothing to kill or die for, and no religion too," he is completely wrong. It IS hard to imagine there is no heaven. About 90% of the planet believes heaven in one form or another. It is not that 90% of the people are stupid, backward, unenlightened, or stubborn. It is their innate belief, which, if you believe in evolution, cannot be dismissed, reeducated, or killed off. The numbers don’t lie. An atheist has a 9 in 10 chance of having a child who will believe in God and heaven. Probably the numbers are higher if you include that most atheists are made, not born. So John Lennon is very wrong about being able to imagine there is no heaven. Likewise, he is incorrect that, without ideas of heaven, religion would die. Religion is not exclusively about heaven. Heaven is reward, in an afterlife. We also have to live now. Religion tells us how to live. Religion provides laws of limitation to prevent hurt and trespass against others, commandments of sacrifice and pleasing God, and rules of lifestyle for food, sex, and other touchy subjects. This is true of any religion. Religion therefore seeks to keep society together, through rules and laws. But if you say religion is not the answer, what is? Irreligion is not the answer, this is clear. Without religion and heaven, there shall still be a law to rule society, and if it is irreligion it shall kill and die for that ideal, and if it is “coexistence” it cannot be held together without force, especially force of the law. Indeed, the law is power, and your only question is, and shall be, which Law do you wish to live under? This choice, which is most important, shall determine which God.
So let us not say, “If only there were no religion, there would be peace.” It is not possible for religion to cease, because thoughts of heaven are innate, and also because laws for society are necessary. On the other hand, it is not possible for hedonism to cease, and therefore hedonism, and those who enable hedonism, shall war constantly with religion.
Now, you might say, what right or business has religion to butt into the lives of many or any? Perhaps you believe society can live without the Law of God? To live without the Law of God is to invite many evils. The first evil is savagery, to live the law of the jungle, to live the law of kill or be killed. This savagery is also inherent in atheism. Naturally, many will say that the Law of God is savage, commanding us to kill, for example, the male homosexual. And while I might fight this notion, by saying, first, that no one is forcing the male homosexual to be a homosexual, or that no one is forcing him to be public with his homosexuality, or that the Law of God demands witnesses for any trial, I do not deny that, at the end of such trial which finds such a man guilty of such an act, there is death. But this is not hypocrisy, for we do not say that religion is for peace or tolerance. Jesus Christ, who is often looked upon as this bastion of peace and tolerance, said, “I did not come to bring peace, but a sword” (Matthew ). In other words, Christ did not come to bring coexistence and tolerance of sin, but rather a sword against it. Therefore, Christianity is not supposed to be a religion of peace and tolerance towards sin. And since sin is specifically defined as breaking one of God’s commandments, Christianity ought to be geared towards the Law of God, and lawful enforcement of it. That Christianity is not geared towards enforcing the Law of God (never mind lawfully enforcing it) makes it a religion which permits hedonism and, with ultimate irony, atheism. Even the Buddhists must agree that wars of defense are necessary to defend their lives and territory. And is not defense of the Law which prevails over the land a war of defense? And if the Law of the land is against the male homosexual, is not prosecution of the male homosexual a war of defense? Law then is defensive, not offensive, even if it is proactive against that which it forbids.
So it is not religion, or thoughts of heaven or God, which rankles the atheist. Rather, it is the Law of God which upsets the atheist and the hedonist. The atheist feels oppressed by surrounding religion and therefore makes protest to the government to “protect” him from such oppression, and, when the government obliges, it is religion which then becomes oppressed. Merely a reversal, not a coexistence (which is anyway not possible). The hedonist likewise feels this oppression, makes these protests, and reverses power when the government obliges. This war is not due to religion, this war is due to a struggle over “which law.” It shall always boil down to this: Which Law shall prevail?
Buddhists love the way of Buddha. Christians love the way of Christ. Or, at least, they love their IDEA of the way of Buddha, or their IDEA of the way of Christ. Buddhists seek to escape pain by ceasing striving. Christians seek to escape pain by faith in resurrection, if not Rapture. These are the carrots which motivate, which those who teach motivation classes say must be set out in front of the human being, to make him obey. Obey? Yes, carrots are there to cause obedience to rules, programs, twelve-steps, and laws. There is reward for doing things right. But there is also a stick, punishment for doing things wrong. Those who say God is all-forgiving are disavowing the stick, acknowledging only the carrot. George Carlin, the comedian, said he believed in a “big electron” which did not judge or punish but just “is.” This is wishful thinking.
For if we acknowledge that God created the universe, and did so through scientific means and ways, through laws of nature, in other words, why would He create commandments for every object in the universe, the galaxies and planets and winds and animals and plants, but not create commandments for human beings? Only the arrogance of humanity, that we are created to enjoy the bounty, but have no further responsibility to God or ourselves or our universe, would cause such an utterance. How arrogant indeed that a man would say he alone, or those like him, are exempt from the Law of God. In fact, these are the thoughts of the hedonist, weak in the law, who shall be conquered by the savage, strong in the law. Why the savage and why not the moral? There is another arrogance amongst the moral, that they have a burden to be more decent and civil, even if such burden takes them away from the actual Law they say commands them to be decent and civil! In other words, the moral are too nice, and therefore, when taken away from the violence inherent in the law, they become hedonists themselves. Only when the moral enforce the law, according to the procedure in the law, are they not hedonists, not weak, and not subject to conquest by the savage.
The second evil which stems from living without God is communism, which we have already discussed as a worse alternative to religion. The third evil is corruption, which is use of the law for personal gain rather than for societal good. Corruption creeps into everything, naturally so, elevated by human nature to uplift one's personal empowerment or standard of living. When the Law of God dominates, there can be no corruption, only deviation. When God rules, man cannot do evil, even if there is violence inherent in the Law. Domination by Torah is thus infinitely better than domination by men. The fourth evil is crime. This is simply non-adherence to law. As previously mentioned, the marijuana smoker breaks the law of man, not the Law of God, so it is not abhorrent. But the thief, even in his pettiness, is abhorrent, breaking the Law of God. Without God's Law, crime becomes relative, according to the mood of the judge or jury. But God's Law is clear, and those who deny and break His Law, including judges and juries who fail to enforce the Law, are criminals also, despite their “good” intentions. The fifth evil is hedonism, which is the hardest thing to surrender, the easiest thing to accept, and that which is manipulated by all other evils. Where hedonism is promised, evil is elected.
If God is a construct of man, we still must choose between God and man, between God's Law and man's law. If we choose man's law, we are subject to the whims of men. If we choose God's Law, we are only subject to that which is already written (even if we also are subject to civil law). To reject God and His Law is to therefore choose slavery and death. To accept God and God's Law is to limit the control men have over other men. In either case, men will control men, but at least with God's Law it is limited to the written word and interpretations thereof.
How does this help us to choose which God? Which God is best? We may dispense with any religion which reveres the creations of God, such as sun-worship, cat-worship, rain-worship, and so forth. We may also dispense with any religion which reveres a non-judgmental god, for this is merely arrogance and wishful thinking, as previously discussed. We may also dispense with any religion which reveres a multiplicity of gods, mythologies Roman, Greek, Egyptian, Teutonic, Hindu, and so forth. Why? In every case, there is a chief "god." If there is a chief god, why are there smaller gods to revere, in whichever measure? All gods, including God, are jealous, and it therefore makes no sense to tempt the wrath of the strongest god by including any weaker god in worship, even if the chief god commands it. We may also dispense with any religion which uses a totem or idol of any kind. Any material thing is destructible. Wood may be burned, stone may be broken, and so on, but God is indestructible. Too, God is invisible, so any totem or idol is a sacrilege, a blasphemy, even if in the true likeness of God, if that were possible. We may also dispense with philosophy posing as religion. Whether the philosophy is strong in law (Confucianism) or weak in law (Buddhism), philosophy is not eternal as is the Law of God. Even where law is transcendent (Zen, Tao), there is a way. Law cannot be merely tossed without consequence, and every great philosophy understands this. Even Buddhism, which thinks itself not susceptible, finds itself full of idolatry (Buddha did not want to be worshipped) and hedonism (the Western form of Buddhism). Stronger Law must therefore be considered better, even if many complain their hedonisms are constricted by it.
After this, what remains is a monotheistic religion which reveres an invisible God. This includes Christianity, Judaism, Islam, and Sikhism. Sikhism is latter-day. Islam and Christianity spring from Judaism, worshipping essentially the same God, and obeying (or disobeying) essentially the same Law of God, Torah. Torah is ancient, contains language which makes it non-amendable, has suffered the requisite persecution under a tiny minority of human population, has remained dominant even under unlawful amendment, and is the backbone for our most revered documents, the Magna Carta and the Constitution of the United States. Flawed though all things may be, it is in comparison to actual Torah. The Constitution is amendable where Torah is not. Likewise, Christianity has amended Torah by doctrine to permit unlawful things, such as pork, tattoos, and even idols, if you count the crucifix and statues of Mary and Jesus. Excepting Judaism, Islam has come closest to keeping Torah, but, like Korah of Exodus, has done so with their own separate and illegal congregations, which administer this Torah (tawrot) through a judicial system which is not only ultra-violent but also not permitted by Torah. Islam is self-defeating.
But even the Jews, commanded by Torah to be a separate people, distinguished also by physical distinctions, instead seek to assimilate with the Gentiles, for reasons of security and fitting in, if not outright hedonism. This assimilation has been the cause of much trouble for the Jews, who are generally blamed for the ills of a society in which they had no business anyway. This is not to blame the Jews for the Holocaust, or any economic woes of any country, only to say that adherence to Torah would have prevented even the perception that the Jews must be hunted down. But this is not all of it, for the Jews have been persecuted just for being Jews, even when they mind their own business. Why are the Jews so persecuted? Because they are the bearers of the Law which is most despised. Why is Torah most despised? Because it clamps down hardest on hedonism. Is not Koran most despised? Even if so, Koran derives deliberately and closely from Torah, so it is still Torah which is despised. And because it is most despised, this is the best reason to choose Torah as the Law of God.
The main issue then with Torah, and belief in it as the Law of God, and thus of men, is that adherence to Torah takes away from hedonism, and causes, often for no apparent reason, persecution of those who uplift Torah. It seems easier for men to agree with each other, tolerate their hedonisms, and keep religion in a meek fashion, all for the sake of peace. But such meek and weak people are ripe for picking by savages, criminals, the corrupt, and the communists. Abstaining from Law does not make peace, only a power vacuum which must and will be filled.
Is there no compromise? Is there no coexistence? There is not. There is one God. If there is not one God, there are not many gods. If there is not God, there is man. If there is man and not God, there is evil. There is no evil with God, even if there is violence inherent in the Law. Dispensing with God does not make an accident any less tragic, or failures any less painful. Dispensing with God only leaves one without hope of rescue. Luck, as it were, becomes the new god, praying for good luck, praying against bad luck. There is no "rational man" who is completely at ease without God. There is no rational man completely at ease without a strong law. The only thing missing for the rational man is that God has not personally appeared before him. But even this thought is flawed, for, as we’ve already discussed, reality itself is the revelation of God.
Who is God? Torah
tells us who God is, "the God who brought you out of the
Torah is, for all intents and purposes, the Law of God for the entire Earth, which means the true God is the one who gave this ancient, complete, non-amendable, enduring, and persecuted Law to Moses.
What if you scoff? What are you scoffing at? Do you want law or no law? You want law. Do you want man's law or God's Law? You want God's Law. Do you want your own law? You are just as much a hypocrite to your own law as anyone else is to their law, including Torah. Evading Torah for your own law will not make you less of a hypocrite or lawbreaker, only more lenient on yourself when you are or do. You as your own god will be a complete farce. You are neither faithful to yourself nor do you believe it. When the chips are down, you will look to a higher power, whether it be the God of Torah or some other. Or do you think you will courageously go down with the ship?
True, many successful people do not worship God. Some worship Satan. Some worship trees and rocks. Some worship Buddha. I never said the human race had a shortage of gods or laws, or a shortage of philosophies or anti-philosophies, or a shortage of cynics and disbelievers. My point is, you must choose, and the path you choose will be the law you choose. So, which Law? That answer will determine, Which God?
613 COMMANDMENTS! Today, we begin with #1.
613.1: DOES GOD EXIST? (Exodus 20:2, Deuteronomy 5:6)
Leave off for a moment “Which God?” The question is, does God exist? If He does exist, the creation of the universe is easy enough. This is true whether He creates the universe in an instant or over billions of years. What difference how long it takes to create if we know God did it? But if God does NOT exist, what created the universe?
If we say the universe always existed, intrinsically, forever as it were, we have merely taken God, the ever-present, out of the equation but still left His eternal imprint upon the answer. If we say, “The universe always was,” but refuse to acknowledge the eternity of God, are we not treading in hypocrisy? Why would we accept the universe as eternal, on faith, but reject an eternal God? If we say there is a science which makes the universe eternal, aren’t there things in the universe which must be eternal also? Since this MUST be true, under this hypothesis, that an eternal universe is composed of eternal things, why dismiss the possibility of an eternal God? Is it because we, as mortals, view only non-living things, such as rock or gas, as eternal, but anything living as finite and mortal? But I ask, if the non-living things comprise the eternal universe, where did those non-living things come from? Shall we say the solids came from gases? Where did the gases come from? Shall we say the gases came from pure eternal energy? Where did the pure eternal energy come from? Shall we say the pure eternal energy came from another dimension? Where did that other dimension come from? And so on, ad infinitum. Eventually, “where did that come from?” leads us to the eternal thing or things which are, or have been, basis for all other things. We cannot say ALL things in the eternal universe are eternal, for those things which are mortal surely come after, and have come from, the eternal things. The mortal cannot give birth to the immortal. Only the immortal, the eternal, can give birth to the mortal. So we cannot say human consciousness is the eternal thing which predates, and therefore we cannot say that we, by our consciousness, created the universe. But if we did say such a thing, have we not said there is an eternal consciousness which creates? And if we say there is an eternal consciousness which creates, how do we not call that eternal consciousness God? Or, shall we say WE are God? If so, why are we mortal? But if it is only our bodies which are mortal, but our consciousness is immortal, eternal, do we not have an eternal spirit? Where did THAT come from? Did we create ourselves? If we did, why did we create ourselves as mortal, flawed, and without memory that we are immortal and eternal, except we have religion among us, which posits an immortal soul? But if I have an immortal soul, is my eternal soul an individual independent immortal consciousness, or is it under control by an even greater eternal consciousness, which we call God? Any hypothesis of an eternal universe which contains mortal beings must explain how an eternal thing creates, or permits to create, a mortal thing. What does an eternal thing know of mortality? What sort of transformation causes eternal things to transmute to mortal things? We know it can be done in the laboratory, where, under the right conditions, inorganic things can be turned into organic things. But this is done under the direction of a creator, the scientist, who replicates a process. This scientist discovers the process, but does not invent it. Who invented it? But if you say the process was of chaos, and no one invented it, that is, there is no God, how does chaos turn the eternal into the mortal? Where does chaos get this power? And, anyway, where did chaos come from? Do you see?
As we have already noted, mortal things must come from eternal things, which is why the theory of the eternal universe still endures, though that theory is weak. That weak theory explains much while showing very little. In fact, the theory of the eternal universe is just a way to take God out of the equation while retaining all the eternal qualities of God. But the theory of a universe which did NOT always exist takes God out of it altogether, right? Not at all.
If we say the universe did not always exist, is NOT eternal, we must ask how “nothing” came to be “something,” or how “something” came from “nothing.” Again, we speak of process. The scientist who claims to create life from non-living substance has only utilized a substance which already exists. There is a joke that goes: A scientist tells God, “I can create life also.” God tells the scientist to go ahead and do so. The scientist picks up a handful of dust to begin the process, but God stops the scientist and says, “Make your OWN dust.” This is the conundrum of the joke: Where did dust come from? Is the scientist able to provide his own building blocks, or does the scientist begin with things which already exist? The weak theory of the eternal universe provides an answer to this riddle without explaining it, which puts God into the equation without saying “God.” But the theory of something from nothing is ALSO without explanation, only from a different angle. Whereas the theory of the eternal universe circumvents Creation, the theory of something from nothing circumvents Natural Law. What natural law provides for the creation of energy from nothing? What natural law provides for the creation of matter from nothing? There are none. There are in fact “laws of conservation” which prevent the creation of any new energy into the universe. Energy cannot be created. Energy can only be unlocked, as from burning wood, or splitting an atom, or smashing an atomic particle. Something from nothing is in fact prevented by the science! Why then is such hypothesis popular? Likely because it sweeps away the hypothesis of the eternal universe, which for many is too close for comfort to a notion of God. It is a prejudice against God. But the hypothesis of something from nothing is also close to God, for where does such power originate?
Those who sweep away “origination” as not a scientific pursuit, saying we cannot speak about that which cannot be quantified, are not only hypocrites to their own scientific pursuit, but also hypocrites to those things which are yet unknown or invisible which they rely upon each day, even without thinking about it. For example, whether or not they have a thing called a “personality.” The personality cannot be placed in a test tube, but it exists as a matter of result. It makes the flesh animated with spirit, and thought, and guides the emotional chemistry. No one would deny the existence of personality, but it cannot be seen outside the effect it has on the body it inhabits.
Likewise, God is invisible, but His effects are evident. The most important effect of God is the existence of Order. Only under God is the existence of order to be called “natural.” Without God, any unifying force of order which is not named “God” has only been renamed as a way of dissecting the forces which God sets in motion. For example, gravity. You may quantify the effects of gravity, even posit a singular building block called a graviton, but I will still ask you, “Where did THAT come from?” Gravity is not chaotic, but of order. Where there is gravity, it works within its parameters on every object within its sphere of influence. Therefore, gravity is ordered. Therefore, gravity is ordered by SOMETHING.
is not ONLY gravity which is ordered.
Genetics, for example, is ordered so that human beings give birth to
human beings and not frogs or oak trees, though the scientist
would have you believe we are all so closely related by
The fact that beings reproduce at all is not intrinsic to life but is rather an evidence of God. What do I mean by this? If we say the mortal came from the eternal, it means the mortal was not always here, but was created by some process. If the process came from randomness, this process should be considered rare. Rare because any random process is neither directed nor repeatable. If life originated from randomness, there was no scientist (God) laying out the many steps in a controlled environment, and therefore life originated from chaos, with only one chance to succeed. “Only one chance” because we cannot make wild claims that life may originate from any number of paths. But even if that were possible, environment is important. Under randomness, we cannot say Life was created to suit the environment, only that, by chance, the environment just happened to suit that very rare moment when Life was created. This is only the first miracle! Then, such Life created must find food to sustain it. Under randomness, we cannot say Life was created to suit the food available, only that, by chance, the food available just happened to not be poison to that random life-form. A miracle! Then, such life-form must be able to digest such food, and to excrete the waste product. How is it that Life was created with such organic systems in place already, and which suited the environment?! How is it that Life was created with the correct breathing apparatus? Then, how is it that Life was created with a reproductive system? Think how miraculous this all is. Under randomness, the creation of Life should be considered rare and non-repeatable, meaning there is one chance to succeed. There is no “urging of Life” to “try again” or “get it right.” Yet, the “random” first life-form just happened to be created into an environment where it was able to breathe the air and eat the food available, without being poisoned? It had breathing apparatus and a digestive system? Wow! But this first life-form ALSO just happened to be able to reproduce, having a system for it!? Now, you may say such life-form “evolved” from amino acids, but then I must ask you where the amino acids came from, and how did they acquire such abilities, and how did they come to have their own systems of reproduction?
Do you see? Under randomness, or chaos, Life has virtually no chance of coming into existence. The eternal universe has no purpose to create a mortal thing. The mortal thing has no idea which life-support systems are required for the time and place where it comes to exist. Reproduction from genesis is completely unlikely. Genetics from reproduction is yet another unlikelihood. These unlikely things are not easy hurdles. Furthermore, they are exponential, building with every step to insurmountable odds. Under randomness, therefore, the odds of mortal life coming to be, whether in an eternal universe or a created universe, are astronomical.

is 100%. God can create Life from
nothing, whether we say He does so in an instant or over billions of
years. God makes the mortal thing from

It is a huge concept, but a simple one also. The odds of Chaos creating and sustaining the universe and Life are a zillion to one against it. The odds of God creating and sustaining the universe and Life are 100%. Why then would anyone say that Chaos created the universe and life, and that God is a fantasy, when it is science and math which proves that Chaos is working not only under the tremendous strain of insurmountable odds, but also not working at all! Chaos does not work. Chaos does not have a plan. Chaos is Chaos.
The universe and Life not only came to be under Order, as it must be, but also are sustained under Order. Every system of sustenance is of Order, whether it is genetics, or quantum physics, or hydrodynamics. We depend on Order to be sustained, and we are sustained by Order, not Chaos.
There is no third option. There is either a Creator or Chaos. Chaos cannot create and sustain. But if Chaos does create and sustain, is it not the Creator? Should we not then worship Chaos? But if we do worship Chaos, are we not thanking Chaos for Order? Then, have we not simply renamed God?
Does God exist? The science and math does not allow for absence of a Creator. Even Time is subject to order, or else our lives and memories are naught. God is to be thanked for permitting life. Chaos only destroys it. Chaos does exist but is also a creation of God, and is not permitted to destroy every moment. Chaos is ordered by God.
Overwhelmingly, the evidence is that God exists.
The Final Countdown
Yes, friends, it’s the final countdown in more ways than one. Here we have the final verses to Isaiah. How great this has been, and what an honor to have the time, to go through each and every verse of Isaiah thoroughly, but most important, with an Hebraic mindset.
Our next project will be to go over each and every of the 613 commandments!
How else is it the final countdown?
(1) The five evils are rampant. This is happening before our very eyes. There is a great risk of Armageddon by any number of death weapons, carried out by psychopaths and sociopaths, whether homicidal or suicidal. Great weight is placed upon the most civilized, who either shut down, join in chorus against themselves (for example, white guilt), or take umbrage. Astoundingly, people take umbrage to the umbrage, as if freedom, liberty, personal choice, and personal protection were bad things! Naturally, once personal choice and personal protection are invoked, the five evils ALSO claim ownership, as in the “right” of the elite to protect themselves by slaughtering those they’ve oppressed, or the right of Muslim extremists to protect themselves from domination by dominating! But this is not the end! Amazingly, the people who love freedom ignore these death threats, and instead attack those who point it out, the messengers. Truth is called radicalism, lies and omission are called common sense!
(2) It is the final year of Barack Obama. What new device will we see from this master manipulator? Some say he will seek to stay in power. I doubt that, but you never know when a Stalinist will rise, seeking to rule the world. So many scoff, saying, “C’mon, NOBODY wants to rule the world.” That’s not how the song goes. And so, the power-mad, Obama among them, run free, and often so. The only question is, why don’t the people do something about it? I suppose the answer is, it is as it has always been. Few care, fewer still have the guts or brains to do anything about it, and those who do are mocked or assassinated.
Cheerful, isn’t it?
But there is HOPE. There is Torah, which is THE Law. Those who seek a different Law only fight against this eldest Law, burrowing for exemptions, because there cannot be NO Law, or there is no society. Those who say the Law is individuality without commonality are seekers of pleasure, whether sex, drugs, foods, or other items forbidden either by Torah or by civil law. Naturally, civil law is corrupted, but so are the desires. Where is Torah in all this? Do the pleasures and desires help to keep Torah, or to break it, or bring one further away? It’s easy to see in popular culture that the ways of Torah are ground to dust for the sake of pleasure, whether it is the glorification of homosexuality, bacon, or tattoos, things which “hurt nobody.” Ah, but Torah is not just about refraining from hurting, but also about separation from the world. You cannot be Torah if you do not separate.
The Christians learned this, but did not make it about Torah, though the book is inexplicably inextricably bound to the New Testament. They instead separate themselves by word, not deed. They even say the deed is useless, even harmful! Their godliness is shaped by intention, not action. They claim righteousness by faith, not works, though in fact Jesus DEMANDS works, as does John, James, and Peter. Judgment Day in Revelation is in fact based entirely on works. Ah, but the Christian says he is exempt because of his intention, his words, his promise to love Jesus and fellow man. But even here, away from Torah, speaking of peace and tolerance, the Christian fails, because Christianity is not and has never been about peace and tolerance. Nor should it be. Hegemony is not coexistence. Jesus was a lawful Jew. Christian hegemony ought to be Torah. Period. Checkmate.
could go on about Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism, atheism, and how these ways also
claim to have found a way, but the adherents do not even walk the path of their
founder. Yes, there are many millions of
Muslims who believe in Mohammed’s hegemony and violence, but where are the
hundreds of millions of Muslims who believe in peace and tolerance stopping the
fundamentalists. They do not and
cannot. At heart, fundamentalism is
following the ACTUAL Law in your ACTUAL book.
Say what you will, that Islam is death, which is true, but if a
fundamentalist follows the Law, can he be blamed? No.
Thus, it shall ALWAYS be a fight for domination, for hegemony. You must only pick a side.
Swine’s Flesh Blasphemy
Blasphemy is when the Law is not only left undone but also taught against. Not only is it common sense that anyone who teaches against the Law of God is also against God, as being against His dominion and hegemony, it also goes against the Son of God (Matthew 5:19). So how is it that a people who call themselves holy not only openly transgress the Law, and transgress it even after being shown in no-uncertain, black-and-white terms that it is unlawful, and transgress it with gusto and often, but also teach that the Law may be so ignored because the Son of God said it may be so ignored, and transgressed?
I am of course alluding to the swine’s flesh, which is in today’s portion from Isaiah. How do the Christians reconcile that the same Isaiah they are fond of quoting, especially where it concerns virgin birth and suffering servant and New Jerusalem, the same Isaiah who is Jesus’ favorite prophet, is also the same Isaiah who tells that God will have no mercy upon those who eat the swine’s flesh, and the mouse? The mouse?
friends, the mouse is considered food in many portions of
And if the mouse is verboten, is not the pig? Yes, for the Law says so, and Isaiah says so, and Jesus does not disagree with either, and if He ever did disagree we may say He is not elohim, not a Son of God, for a Son of God does not blaspheme, and does not teach against the Law, which I say is anyway the same thing.
A friend asked me, “Is it forbidden to speak ill of the Bible?” My reply is, “The Bible consists of many things: Law, prophecy, commentary, history, poetry, sayings. The only thing which is forbidden is to speak ill of the Law.” And why is this? Very simply, to speak ill of the Law is to teach against it, and to teach against the Law is not only forbidden by the Law, and Jesus, but also by common sense leads to the destruction of God’s hegemony. And if destroyed, there is a vacuum of power which shall be filled by some other force of Law, whether a savage law, or a corrupt law, or a criminal law, or a law of pleasure, or even a law to have no law. The only reason then to speak ill of the Law is to replace God.
Even the smallest commandment, even the dot over a letter, is forbidden to change, and Jesus said He did not come to change a jot or tittle (markings of Hebrew letters), so His words match what is permissible, which means Jesus is lawful, legalistic, Jewish, and Torah, in the way such pleases God. And just the reverse, to teach in favor of the least commandment is to receive the honor of being called greatest in Heaven, or from Heaven (but either is most worthy).
So if the Christian acknowledges that to refrain from swine’s flesh, and the mouse, is indeed the commandment, the Christian has no recourse but to obey. Unlike the US Constitution, Torah cannot be amended, and Torah says it cannot be amended. Thus, anyone who would amend Torah is a lawbreaker, a blasphemer, least in the kingdom, and so forth. Thus, if a Christian says Jesus amended Torah, whether before or after His death, such amendment nullifies Jesus as Son of God. Thus, the Christian nullifies the worthiness of Jesus by eating swine’s flesh.
But supposing Christ DID intend for Christians to eat swine’s flesh, then Jesus nullifies Jesus.
The only correct attitude, both regarding Torah and Christ, is that eating swine’s flesh is forbidden, blasphemous, and, for the Christian, nullifies Christ, not to the level of a man, but to the level of a demon. For who is more least than a demon? But if not a demon, how can Jesus be least of anything? He is not greatest because you say He died for you, but rather He is greatest because He influenced you to follow Torah, including refraining from swine’s flesh.
Or will you say that the Jewish Jesus, who proclaimed to His (all Jewish) disciples to go not to the Gentiles or Samaritans, but only to the children of Israel, was a traitor to His own God, His proclaimed father, took His life in hands, and died so that, as an accessory to your salvation by Grace, you could eat swine’s flesh? If so, would the Sanhedrin not have every right to put Jesus to death, as a practitioner of sedition and blasphemy, not against the Sanhedrin, but against God?
But, you might ask, why did God create the pig if not to eat it? Didn’t Paul say God created all things for good? Well then, why not eat a mouse? Why not eat a dead human carcass? Why not marry your sister? Why not break any small or great commandment based upon whether or not something seems good to you? Are you not God when you break God’s Law consciously, publicly, and without guilt? No, you are not. You are a blasphemer.
Finally, is it true that by Christ’s death the Law is dead? If so, why this fetish with pig meat? Why not include many other things into your life based on availability, taste, and public perception. Oh wait, you do that now. Tattoos, cross-dressing, sexual preferences – these are fair game for the blasphemers of society. The libertarians say it hurts no one, so mind your own business. They are the mouthpieces for blasphemy, enablers of hegemonic change.
If the Christian who eats pork is correct, and may eat, there is no reason for that Christian to read Isaiah, who delivers judgment for such. How can the Christian say this applies to the non-Christian? How is it that Torah must apply to the non-Christian but non-Torah applies to the Christian? But isn’t it interesting that when a Christian wants Christian hegemony, the Christian is oft to quote Torah in regard to those things the Christian is likely to follow, such as Sabbath, tithing, and adultery. But even here the Christian does not understand Law. The Sabbath is Saturday, the “Lord’s Day” is Sunday, but this latter only by tradition. The tithe of church has no relationship to the three Torah tithes, yet the Christian is self-satisfied, even smug, to believe that the collection plate takes away his tithe. And adultery? This applies only to women, and men have a different Torah cross to bear.
These things and more are part of our regular learning sessions. Please come join us.
A New Year Means What?
are diligent, we should not change until either our goal is met or we must give
up our goal, being defeated. When it
comes to goals, this is the choice. If
the goal is to lose weight, diligence wins the game. As
Simple is difficult. I wrote a song about it once – want to hear it? It begins, “Simple but hard, how do I start…” Yes, indeed, how DO I start? How do WE start? WHERE do we start? On WHAT do we start? And WHY?
Let’s say your goal is to (quite commonly) lose weight. A mere declaration to do so obviously is not enough. The inspiration is only 1% of it. Now comes the perspiration: (1) Deciding on a diet, (2) deciding on a timeline, (3) deciding on a stopping point, (4) deciding on a final body image. This is enough to make any brash promise come to a halt, and often enough it does. For it is SIMPLE to NOTICE a problem, but HARD to actually make a plan, and harder still to carry it through.
When it comes to politics, it is the same. We know well enough what the problems are. Corruption and fraud. Waste. Power-mongering for power’s sake. Unconstitutional behavior and action. Too-high taxes. Too-burdensome regulations. Snoops and spies and stool-pigeons. Military-industrial complex. Collusion between government and certain businesses. But having identified these problems, do we smugly say we are smart, then leave it to dolts and criminals and demons to administer? Why… yes, we do.
And why do we leave our entire lives in the hands of dolts and criminals and demons? One response might be that it’s too hard, and this is also the main reason why many diets, exercise programs, twelve-step programs, spiritual rejuvenations, and so forth, are quit. It’s too hard.
is also the reason given by Peter in Acts 15 for ignoring the Law of God. You knew eventually I’d get there, didn’t
you? Yes, after Paul came to
Pretty strange statement, wouldn’t you say? Peter didn’t say, “Jesus (or the blood of Jesus) lets us off the hook.” He didn’t say, “Paul is right, Jesus reneged the Law.” No, Peter said, “It’s too hard.”
your mind isn’t blown by this
For if the non-Jewish Christians ignore the Law, they are not Christians, and not Jews, but pagans. And for James, such distinguishing between pagan and Christian (or Jew, which ought to be viewed as the same thing, even according to doctrine) meant not only refraining from any other god, and not only refraining from sexual acts which Torah forbids, but also refraining from foods killed in a certain manner, and from certain parts of food. And naturally, we may believe that James meant this as a STARTING POINT, and not the GOAL, NOT the end-point, for in Acts 15:21 James states that the rest of the Law may be learned by the non-Jewish Christians every Sabbath at the synagogue or temple (and the Jewish Christians were to continue fully in the Law, as Acts 21 admits)!
So it is that a “new year” is symbolic for a “new you,” and the “new you” which is superior is that which serves GOOD and NOT EVIL. For Jews, this means more Torah. For Christians today, it generally means some sentimental family-oriented objective, or perhaps a faith-driven personal conviction. But in reality, and as the FACTS of New Testament show (we haven’t even spoken today of Matthew , have we?), a “new you” in Christianity means less paganism. And this means, to no small degree, that family itself may suffer for the sake of less paganism, that is, for the sake of more Torah. For Jesus said (paraphrasing), “I did not come to bring peace but a sword. And this sword shall divide families, the mother from the daughter (and so forth).”
may not believe in a literal interpretation of Noah and The Flood, but there is
no mistaking the words of Christ. If
your family is more important than Christ, you’re on the wrong path. But Christ is not a person, He is a WAY, that
is a manner by which you live, and you cannot live in a WAY of Christ the
person, for then you must go to
I began this article by speaking about a new year, and new year’s resolutions, especially that of dieting, and at this point you are now obviously quite aware that a new year is not new if YOU are not new, and your resolutions will not be successful if you do not actually DO something about it, and your dieting is useless if you keep eating the same things. So how is it that a diet is ruined by eating the wrong foods, but your Christianity, determined through the Bible, of which you say you believe every word, is NOT ruined if you eat the wrong foods?
A failed diet usually ends with these words: “I tried but it was too hard.” Or, “I tried but I like what I like.” Or, “I tried but I have glandular issues so I get a pass.”
Likewise, failed Christianity uses the same language: “The Law is too hard” or “God does not want me to miss out on joy” or “I have Jesus so I get a pass.”
But Matthew says differently. And Acts 15 says differently. And where it concerns the Law of God, there is no amendment possible, for the Law says there is no amendment possible, and anyone who amends the Law of God is a scofflaw, an outlaw, a criminal, and a demon. Matthew 5:17-19 says as much, and teaches us that EVERY commandment is meant to be kept and taught. If that is not the meaning, why are those the words of Christ? And if Christ meant something else, such as “It’s too hard, so do just common-sense and basic things,” doesn’t that mean He taught against the Law? Is that even possible? Is that even logical?
Did Jesus REALLY teach that the Law is wrong because it’s too hard? Perhaps you think that’s too much, and that Jesus only taught PART of the Law is too hard, and only PART of the Law may be ignored? But the Law SAYS that the Law is not amendable, so if Jesus taught that part of the Law may be ignored, then Jesus ALSO taught the Law IS amendable, which means EVERYTHING is up for grabs! Is that even possible? Is that even logical?
Wouldn’t that mean the Law is subject, in whichever degree you like, to our personal impulses, whims, and desires? Doesn’t that condemn the Law and make our impulses to be good?
Thankfully, we know, even in our hearts, that our impulses are NOT good. We even know, in our hearts. that we eat wrong things, say wrong things, and indeed, in the most humble fashion, that all our righteousness is like a filthy rag, because, in a way, we can’t help it. However, where these words occur in Isaiah 65, they are not the words of the humble, of those who will change their behavior from personal whim to Torah Law. No indeedy, they are the words of the arrogant, the smug, who blame God for making them this way, and who basically will NOT change, and still ask God, “How long are you going to stay angry about something YOU did, God?” Is that “wow” or what?
And in case you think Isaiah 65 has nothing to do with eating, let me educate, and show you that God brought judgment on these fallen Jews (or Hebrews, or Israelites) NOT ONLY for idolatry (Isaiah 65:3) BUT ALSO because they “eat swine’s flesh, and broth of abominable things is in their vessels” (65:4).
So it is that the failed Christian says the SAME THING to Jesus, “Please help me. I’m a sinner, but I was made this way (original sin) and CAN’T be righteous without you, so please make me righteous by my plea… even though I’m not actually going to change to Torah living, only make a commitment to be kinder, gentler, and a thousand points of light. Amen.”
That is, the born-again Christian may give up her adultery, or confess his murder, but has no intention to give up the pork, the shrimp, or the tattoos, or seek to please in clothing, facial hair, or other “least commandments,” though Christ says (Matthew 5:19) that to follow such commandments AND to teach others to follow such commandments makes you the greatest.
The question is, How can the born-again Christian give up the more difficult things, such as wrongful sex, and violence, yet not be able to do the easier things, the least commandments?
The answers are, (1) for family peace, (2) for gratification, and (3) for self-congratulation, the ego. For if the Christian gives up pork, his family, taught by errant doctrine, shall think him strange and legalistic, though Christ Himself was most legalistic. But if the Christian does NOT give up pork, he shall not only have family peace, being receptive to the unclean food, and the gratification of wifely and familial company, without interruption, in fact heightened, but he shall also think himself blessed by God to do something plainly unlawful, contradictorily rewarded with unclean food for his new righteousness. Is that even possible? Is that even logical?
modern Christianity is failed Christianity.
It fails Torah, fails Christ, fails the Council at

Blaming God For What We Do
Passive-aggressive means blaming someone else for what YOU do. Barack Obama is passive-aggressive. So is John Boehner. So is MSNBC. So is Bill O’Reilly. I like to watch Donald Trump defending himself, attacking others, and making his points. He doesn’t BLAME others for what HE does, he blames them for what THEY do, and like all good passive-aggressive flunkies, they defend themselves without justification, because there is none.
At work, we know there is a training manual. People normally believe rules are meant to be broken, and so they are. But when caught, do they confess their crimes? No. They blame the manual, the person who makes the rules, the person who enforces the rules, or, worse, someone innocent of the crime who makes a good blame-towel. Just because a rule “makes no sense” doesn’t mean it’s not a rule in the book.
Likewise, at the park, rules are posted restricting where dogs can poop and skateboards can weave. But people do what they want anyway. Why? Because because want to do what they want to do, and rules are in the way. “Think of the CHILDREN!” is a common cry against rules. I AM thinking of the children, who will grow up believing rules are meant to be broken, creating criminals, scofflaws, jaywalkers, unemployable louts.
Nothing new here. The rules have been broken from the beginning. The Israelites in the wilderness broke Torah as often as possible, even though God provided DIRECTLY, and was RIGHT THERE to see their sins. Christianity is BASED on getting away with stuff, whether in the moment, eating pork, getting tattoos, and other acts forbidden by the rules, or in total, asking Jesus to take care of it for them, to talk to the boss, to intercede, to help them skate, fire insurance from hell, a blame-towel, using his blood as their antibacterial ointment.
The New Agers choose the rules they like and leave the rest behind. The Muslims are strict, yet they permit suicide and child rape, all forbidden by Koran, and don’t tell me they don’t permit it, because it’s taught in the mosque.
All of humanity is striving to get over on God, either ignoring His existence, or His Law. But God is watching. And God is taking note. And God IS a just God who enforces sane rules. Saying he is NOT watching, or taking note, or is unjust or insane, does not stop God. He OWNS the Universe, and in the end He owns YOU.
In today’s lesson, we see how the Israelites (Jews) AGAIN cry out to God for mercy, but in doing so blame GOD for what THEY did. And if the Bible tells us this angers God, and it does, WHY would you think YOU are exempt from the same reaction and punishment? Because you are Jewish by birth? Because you say you love Jesus but ignore Torah? Because you think the Jews lost their chosen status and it is now yours? Because you scoff? Because you ignore and disbelieve? Come listen.
What’s The Use?
Often enough we settle into our opinions of God and the universe, of Law and obedience and punishment and reward, and of religion and politics and geopolitics, and especially our value as individuals and even as human beings.
For the most part, there’s no much to say. God exists, mathematically, due to the exponential imporbabilities which must be hurdled to reach any semblance of order, even at the first several levels of existence, or even pre-existence, if you will. We have ORDER, not chaos, in the variety of mechanisms, and laws of nature, which traverse between the many sciences, making the scholar nod in appreciation at the astounding inventions of God, such as genetics, quantum mechanics, thermodynamics, and so forth.
If there is a God, AND THERE IS, there is a hegemonic Law, one which dominates, for God does not create, nor keep order, without laws of nature, and he therefore, logically, and by extension, does not create living beings without laws for their behavior. The animals are ruled by their instincts, and all cats are cat-like, having their own unwritten laws of behavior which God, through genetics, has beforehand calculated and installed. Likewise, man is ruled by instinct, yet man is also given a gift of consciousness well beyond any living creature we know, for man can no only know his present, and remember his past, but can also plan his future, beyond mere seeking of food or reproduction.
Man is capable to do things no animal can do, especially deviate from the norm without much consequence, except where man’s law forbids such behavior by instating harsh punishment. These deviations are interesting and good when they are constructive, even if destructive to previous norms, but not when they are revolution against the people. Therefore, such revolutions as the French Revolution and Russian Revolution are now looked upon as bad, wrong, evil, while the American Revolution, for example, is seen as good.
What benefits the people? Certainly not small factions whose sole aim is to disarm the majority, take their wealth, and subject them to violence, revenge for past wrongs, and simple mayhem. What benefits the people is a stable society constructed from like-minded and, for the most part, like people. We need not venture into racial society, for it is self-evident that most people of a certain race prefer to be amongst their own race, and there is none which comes to mind that, even for their multicultural mindset, would not prefer to instead hold hegemony by race.
Likewise, religion. But while racial dominance, and cultural hegemony thereof, is constructed from rules of men, religious dominance is constructed from rules of God. Naturally, it cannot be that every religion on Earth is right. That, however, does NOT mean that every religion on Earth is wrong or incorrect. While the burden laid upon religion by atheists, and upon a certain religion by a competing religion, may appear to be a fair argument, the solution boils down to answering two questions:
(1) Whose law will we be following?
(2) Who is in charge of that law?
For those who believe the universe is chaotic, and those people are few indeed, the questions are academically moot, though in reality even such atypical people desire social stability, for their dreams, for their peace of mind, for their wealth, for their families.
For those who believe in an ordered universe, the question “whose law will be following?” must be closely followed by “who created the universe?”
In philosophical terms, the question can never be answered. But since the laws which men must follow cannot be neutralized by mere philosophical entropy, it MUST be answered.
The Muslims say the Law of men must be Shariah. But Islam bases their entire Law upon Torah Law, which they deny not. Torah says it cannot be altered or amended, so Shariah, if it deviates from Torah, is self-defeating as the correct Law. I know – tell it to the Muslims. Well, I just did.
The Christians say the Law of men must be a “law of love.” But when pressed, the “law of love” is not a law at all, but rather a dilution, distillation, or deviation from Torah, for Christianity bases its moves upon Torah, albeit with many exclusions, and they deny it not. Torah says it cannot be altered or amended, so the “law of love” that deviates from Torah is self-defeating and not the correct Law. I know – tell it to the Christians. Well, I just did, and I have for many years now.
The Buddhists say the Law of men must be from within. However, WESTERN Buddhism is not Buddhism at all, but merely a hedonistic deviation, which truly negates it as the correct Law of man. EASTERN Buddhism, and Taoism, is a philosophical worship, much like Christianity, and is based on a geopolitical view of religion, much like Confuciamism. But all these Eastern religions are, like Christianity, dilutions from a more ancient Law, almost assuredly Torah. Not Christianity, for that is not a Law, but a philosophy and a hope. Not Islam, for that is unlike the Eastern religions. But even if these were the root, they themselves spring from Torah.
Hinduism has a Vedic Law but it appears to be
rooted in the same concepts as Torah, and it is impossible to say that the
But what’s the use? The Jews do not promote Torah as they ought, and therefore the other religions, whether newer or just as old, competing for audience and money and power, can make their every claim seem all the more reverent and relevant.
When Jesus was tried, the Sanhedrin brought forth false witnesses. Totally against Torah. So it becomes easy for Christians to denigrate Torah, as they, ignorant of Torah, believe Torah crucified Christ, when exactly the opposite happened.
When Mohammed came to the Jews, and asked them to join him in a monotheistic religion, the Jews in Medina told Mohammed to instead join them, but Mohammed thought himself greater, and thereafter was insulted, and so to this day it taken by the Muslims as a sin to slur or even make a picture of Mohammed, as if he is a deity. But if the Jews of Medina had been unassailable in their Torah, Mohammed might’ve joined them.
Thus, in today’s lesson, we learn that even in time of Isaiah the Jews were not following Torah, and FURTHERMORE blamed God for creating them as with free will, that is, able to sin! Is it any wonder the heathen mocks God when those who say they follow Torah mock God? Is this too hard to hear? That it is YOUR fault, Jew, Christian, Muslim, that you do not follow Torah, that the world is falling to pagans, Satanists, hedonists, atheists, and other mockers of the Law? But how can YOU complain when YOU mock the Law?
You eat what is forbidden, you wear garments which are disallowed, you kill when you ought not and let live when you ought to kill, you permit abortions and adulteries to stand without recompense, and you believe you are righteous WHY?
Because you are “saved” by the blood of another? For what purpose? To sin again?
Because you are “chosen” and that’s that? Cannot God make the rocks to worship him?
Because you have oil and a passion to destroy infidels? And you commit suicide WHY?
But if you think I am on the side of the mockers and atheists, you are wrong. That is also not Torah.
Come listen and we will make you think and laugh!
But who are WE?
The young people killed in Paris were human beings and “like us.” But what does that mean? They were attending a concert for death metal, which in itself is little more than an outlet for youthful energy, but what many kids believe due to death metal is a fascination with death. I don’t know these young people, and I don’t know the band playing. But wouldn’t youthful energy have been better served if someone was watching the henhouse? I don’t mean Serbian bouncers, but actual legitimate responsible adults? OK then, you might say, an adult might not be so responsible, or might put a damper on the party. Well now, partying is partying, but why does everyone party as if there is no enemy from without, and no enemy within?
No, what I’m saying is, how is it that we believe we are moral when we break
every commandment of Torah, willfully, from the pork and shrimp, the tattoos,
the paganism, the idolatry, the atheism, the adultery, the divorce without
adultery, the abortion murders, the male
homosexuality, the false witness, and on it goes. Never mind that we permit our government to
break Constitution right in front of our
eyes and we do NO
SO.. if you permit your government to run roughshod over you, with the spying, and the corruption, and the graft, and the lying, and the treason.. and all the while you’re living and partying like God doesn’t exist… how do you expect your moral disintegration to protect you? Or do you believe that fate gives you a free pass? Or do you just say PFFFT to everything?
Make no mistake… as long as you permit Obama, Hollande, Merkel, Cameron, and the rest of these cowards and traitors to run your countries… as long as you dance while your treasury is looted… as long as you believe your enemy will “come around on of these days”… you are always one step from being ground into dust.
“WHAT CAN WE DO?”
I hope that’s what you’re
asking. First, you need a Law to
counteract everyone else’s Law. That Law
is Torah. Why? Listen to our program. Second, you need a spine. Why? Because it’s you or them.

When is Christianity wrong?
1. When it submits to all authority. Really? You will bow to Shariah kindly and obediently? How does that make you a Christian, never mind a soldier for the true God. Same goes for communism. You will submit to the Manifesto? You will give up your private property, your religion, and your family? How does that make you a real Christian? You will submit to every corruption of Constitution and allow your jailors to execute you slowly? You will let every deviance permeate your home, follow every ordinance of “tolerance” and perversion? This makes you a Christian?
When it practices tolerance of sin.
Matthew 5:19. Jesus said whoever breaks the least commandment and
teaches others to do so shall be called “least” and whoever does and teaches
the least commandment shall be called “greatest.” So if you are permitting sin, are you not
“least”? No? Is not one of the commandments to in no way
permit your neighbor to sin but to tell him to stop (Leviticus )? Oh, that
only applies in
So now you know why the world is going to pieces. Two billion Christians permitting every OTHER law to overcome the Law of God. If Christians would accept, teach, and protect Torah, the world would be a much better place. Or do you think Islam is more merciful and peaceful? Or do you think communism is more for the family or for God? Or do you think the hedonists can coexist with the godly? Read your Bible for the answers, if you don’t already know.

ISAIAH 63:13: ARE WE DOOMED?
For years now, we have tried to blow the trumpet, sound the alarm, ring the bell. We are not the only ones, and we haven’t been doing it as long. Maybe not even as well as the others. So what, you may say?
Well, if the decades of rooting out evil haven’t impressed you, how will we? You see, if there is not a buyer, the seller goes out of business. It seems to me that the audience for freedom and truth is shrinking.
Sure, you may say, this is what happens. Out with the old, in with the new. But the new WHAT? It’s one thing for music to change its tune, or culture to grow moldy, but an entire civilization is becoming tired of living? Suicidal tendencies much?
What causes entire countries to commit mass suicide by opening their borders to a people who have no interest in assimilating. No, indeedy, these immigrants are invaders, and, here’s the shocker for you, they view themselves as invaders. Yes, ladies and gentlemen, while you believe that a little kindness and milk will take care of everything, like feeding a stray kitty, these pets of yours are rabid and feral.
But you scoff at me, do you? You sniff! OK, I say, if you have that attitude, you have that attitude. But WHY, in the name of everything holy, do you insist on bashing those who believe there could be some danger? After all, while you swaddle your newborn Muslims, isn’t it wise for someone to watch your vulnerable rear? No? Why?
Do you WANT to die? Or do you think you’re invulnerable, or immortal? Do you have some special defense against a people who not only SAY they want to KILL you, but also have, for decades, done just that, slitting throats, slicing off heads, throwing people from balconies, and hijacking airplanes.
Again, I understand that you want to play do-gooder, and that we the sane are harshing your buzz. Got it. But why would you not want backup? When you go to sleep late, do you not set your alarm, JUST IN CASE you oversleep? When you slice some nice roast beef, do you not take care to keep your fingers clear? Then WHY, explain to me, do you insist that while you extend your hand in friendship to ravenous wolves that we, your defense team, stay silent and out of the way?
Do you WANT savages to run free and pillage? If so, why? Are you seeking death? Or, are you seeking to join them in power?
If not, explain to me why you, among an apparently large number of people, feel sorry for people who destroy everything in their paths? Do you think you will save them? Change them? Or are you just going through brain-dead motions of compassion that someone somewhere taught you? Is this your idea of enlightenment – to roll into a ball like an armadillo?
Look, I understand if you’re AFRAID of the pack animals. But then why are you putting your hand in their mouths and not instead barring your doors?
Just food for thought while you pack a picnic basket for those poor helpless working-age Muslim men who are spitting, hitting, molesting, and threatening your people.

Communism? At the top, there is a battle for world supremacy. Each is a fascism unto its own. Each has its own one-world order, currency, religion, family structure. In other words, each is a communism if not a Marxism. But Torah – TORAH – the greatest Law, is also the greatest fascism and communism in the best sense. For under Torah the people are protected from crooked judges, from bribed leaders, from murderers, from hedonists and Canaanites, from thieves. And the only thing stopping the world from being under Torah is the demonic rage against Torah which is personalized by a hatred of the Jews. And why does this work? Because too many Jews by birth are involved in all of the evils, and not enough are involved in spreading Torah to the nations.
But if Shemitah means the coming of Messiah – if it does – we may look forward to a fascism not under men but under God. And if so, it shall be under Torah. And the meek, the weak, the oppressed, and the obliterated shall be restored, to be free from criminals, savages, non-Torah hedonists, the corrupt, and the murdering communists. Under Torah shall there be death? Naturally. But the Law of God is the protector of women, of children, of decency, of property, of the family. And there is no coexist. So there is no choice in the end.
ISAIAH 62:6-9. Even if…
… my life isn’t all I want it to be, I pray for the world to keep turning after Shemitah.
is the prayer we ought to be praying.
Whether or not your life, or my life, is perfect, or good, or adequate,
or rotten, our prayer ought to be that life continues. Now, having said that, we
ought also to pray that Torah comes into the world, as a matter of the brain
and the heart and the soul. But,
knowing who we are dealing with – humans – it is also right to pray that Torah
comes into the world as a matter of Messiah.
For when Messiah comes He will be Torah. Messiah is not going to take us AWAY from
Torah, from what is right, into filth, depravity, savagery, hedonism,
corruption, collectivism, crime – no, Messiah is going to take us FROM those
things. Whereas hedonists claim
homosexuality does no harm, we know sex in general can be harmful, and
therefore all of the heterosexual ills
Rather, prayer, the subject, should be applied in our lives REGARDLESS of our circumstances. We should pray whether we do so in happiness, joy, and thankfulness, or whether we do it depression, hopelessness, and anger. And the prayer for the world to keep turning after Shemitah is, particularly, the most selfless prayer we can make. Why?
When we pray in thankfulness we ought not forget the atrocities being committed around us, and when we remember we should not wish this world to disappear (for example, in a “rapture”). And when we pray in despair, we likewise ought not permit the knowledge that others are happy to cause the coveting that turns our prayers to spite, and to wish the world to disappear for spite’s sake. Thus, in EVERY regard we should, in fact MUST, pray for the world to keep on, even if there is atrocity around us, or despair in us. For in doing so we make the greatest forgiveness of all. We forgive God.
Yes, forgiveness of God is so important. All things eventually land in His lap, whether good things for thankfulness or bad things for complaint. Thus, forgiving God is the first step to total forgiveness of all other things, even if forgiveness of all other things turns out to be impossible. For we must not be like Job’s wife who said, “Curse God and die.” Rather, “Bless God and live.”
ISAIAH 62:1-5. Shemitah is coming…
This summer of 2015 has been a revelation of evil, from overt ISIS attacks on Christians in Syria and elsewhere, to overt permission of the USA allowing ISIS to proliferate and murder, to overt treaties and deals with Iran, Vietnam (TPP), and Cuba, solidifying our belief at University of Truth that we have been experiencing a Communist-Muslim cooperative takeover right under our noses. This is exactly according to our book, The Mark, and the blogspot, The Mark and the Chaos (search now, please).
Meanwhile, savagery reigns in the streets, mixed with the ill scent of hedonism, egged on by Marxist elements, fueled by the knowledge that the government is not going to stop the violence. We are not at critical mass yet. Race wars are brewing throughout the world, even as many are aware they are participating, like puppets who don’t mind being puppets.
It has become a crime to cite Torah. Homosexuality is expected, not just tolerated. Fraud runs through everything at the highest levels, from the Secretary of State to the Justice Dept, from Congress to the President, from the media to the people. Pork and tattoos, if you will, also. Agreeing with evil so to have a normalcy bias. Eat and drink while Rome burns.
Economically, we are on the precipice worldwide. It was OK to print money in 1983 to fuel repressed stock and housing markets. It was even OK to print money in 1999 to keep the fledgling dot-com revolution from dying an early death. But wages haven’t kept up with house prices. Debt is the order of the day, and the terms of this debt are onerous. Thus, Shemitah.
The purpose of Shemitah is to have a giant forgiveness of debt at the 50-year mark. The last time we experienced such an upheaval was 1965, the end of the previous culture. Before that 1915, World War II, the income tax, the Federal Reserve. Before that 1865, the end of the Civil War. There are 7 year cycles as well, and you can research those.
What is to come this September 2015? Will the world come to its senses? Will the world thumb its nose even more so at God’s face? Will there be war, depression, or prosperity, according to that cycle? Will there be a king of evil among us, or a king of mercy? If we are smart – not even moral, just smart – we will pray with all our energy to the Lord God for forgiveness, divert this train of dynamite which is set to blow any second, and run for our lives towards Torah.
ISAIAH 61:10-11. It is now summer 2015, and the High Holidays will be approaching soon. When the shofar blows this year, it will be a special jubilee, as well as an end to various man-noticed or man-made cycles. The shofar is our way of letting God know we are still with Him. Though every commandment performed in His name is worthwhile and written down, the shofar is a signet that we desire to live another year on this beautiful Earth, and that we promise to do better, as people, as agents, as stewards. So when Rosh Hashanah comes this 2015, make sure you are participating. For it is that if even 5 people are not consumed in corruption, the Lord will save the city for His name’s sake, and for the promises He made to Noah and Abraham.
ISAIAH 61:1-9. One day, perhaps soon, the nations will come to Torah, and we will defeat evils – corruption, savagery, hedonism, crime, collectivism. Until that time, we will continue to fail in this fight using only pleas for logic, compassion, peace, or mercy. Evil has no mind to stop, limit, reverse, or coexist. Neither should we with Torah. It is us or them. As Torah says, either you are for Torah or you are not. As Jesus says, you are either with Him (the Law) or not. Lawlessness leads ALWAYS to more lawlessness, and we see now it ballooning so that neither politician, pastor, nor Pope have any deterrent to their own willful and selfish desires. The people have done likewise, perhaps with less guilt, but with no less responsibility. Law is always the answer, and the only correct and complete Law is Torah, which has been the basis for Judaism, Christianity, Islam, the Constitution of the United States, and even Buddhism and the Native American Law. Most of the world desires Torah in its various forms, but evil is powerful and seductive. We either accept Torah or we accept our doom under one evil or another.
It is becoming increasingly difficult for anyone to practice Torah. The Jews are once again targets for all. Israel is again attacked by the nations, and the United Nations. Christianity, in its struggle for survival against Islam, is ferociously, yet ironically, making choices towards its official non-Law of God ideology, while at the same time revealing how pick-and-choose it is by pointing the finger at the hedonist and atheist but not willing to create valid credentials by at least TRYING to perform Torah. With Christians, it comes down to pork, tattoos, and friendships, rather than God. Islam’s Tawrot is being plowed under by the radicals who fester Leftist politics with the worst examples of twisted theology – where are the “good Muslims” to stand up? Where are the “lawful Christians”? Where are the “real Jews”?
China’s powerful role in world economic is driving communism worldwide, as can be seen in the most recent US Trade Agreement, which leaks have shown a willingness to lay down US law for the sake of.. what? But also communism is against religion, which eventually means the State’s Law becomes supreme over Torah, the Law in fact for Jews, Christians, and Muslims. This sets up a worldwide conflict over Torah. The Buddhists may be an ally one day to Torah but presently Buddhism has been hijacked in the West by hedonists who cannot even admit Buddha to be a god, or at least divine, though he did not want to be venerated this way, in Asia. This sets up yet another conflict between East and West, between Torah and non-Torah.
Political problems in Mexico and Russia, traditional bastions of Christianity, have made it difficult for Torah to proliferate there. Mexico’s love for lawlessness is a bad foundation, obviously, and Russia’s Putin has found his old KGB law to trump the freedom of expression Russians hoped for, but also, more importantly, to counteract the growth of a strong Russian church to tamp down the hedonism, if indeed it can be tamped down there.
Billions of people equals most of the world. Meanwhile, atheists claim victory where there is none, their ranks mainly swelled by anti-theists, Satanists, and other hatred. More useful idiots to fuel the communist sweep, which MUST clash with Islam in a final duel.
That’s it for the report. Please listen to our broadcast by clicking the button.
Hybrid humans? So says Kurzweil. Is that what we want? Yes, if you despise Torah.
If you are not all human, FINALLY Torah cannot apply to you fully.
This is their goal.
We live in the age of a new Tower of Babel.
There is nowhere to hide now. The drones are in hordes. The corrupt have built their underground nests. The savages have proclaimed anger, and the streets of fire they own. The hedonists have elected themselves kingdoms and their slaves shall bake cake. The criminals pour over borders and are protected by those who use their power. We have entered the time of war, and the day of man is soon over.
I should write blurbs for fantasy films, but this is no fantasy. Torah is losing the race. In fact, we are going backwards. We reward the depraved and punish the straight. We decry patriotism and bluster for “fairness” but “sameness” and all who are “deniers” must be silenced by any means. Glamour has displaced honor, and cash has paved over humility.
The five evils are on the march. Does it sound like Middle-Earth? We are going back in time, back to a time of kings and lords and fiefdoms, things we believed left behind. The agrarian environmentalist and the Islamist want the same thing – an end to 2000 years of progress. Mortal enemies band together to meet the common stone – Torah. The Law of God must be destroyed so that Arab nationalism, or carbon taxation, or anarchy, or animalism – anything but Torah – is put in charge of men. Why?
Torah is the right Law. Torah is the right fence. All men know it but none do it. The Christian says he is free from it through, oddly, the workings of the Son of God, who in Matthew 5:19 dashes that hope, but yet the Christian goes on believing his sin is overlooked, and teaches others so. The Muslim takes Torah and calls it Tawrot, and claims the Jews stole from them what the Hebrews received in the desert 1000 years before Mohammed, and the Muslim then defeats the purpose of Torah by vigilantism and purity murders. The Buddhist says he is against the Western way but Buddha, and the Tao, have only one way, and it is the same as Torah. There is no right karma without Torah, and there is no right incarnation without it either.
But they fight. And those who KNOW, who really KNOW, what the warfare is all about, agitate it further, so they may continue to steal, enslave, corrupt, and make twice the child of hell.
The Mark of the Beast is not a mark at all, but is a willingness to take such a mark. “Why not be on the winning side once in a while?” asked the beggar. Indeed. If God forgives all sins equally, shall He not forgive betrayal, idolatry, murder, and gross theft? No. And so God does not forgive without repentance and change and obedience.
There is a path. Only one. Truth is singular. Torah.
The Nation of Israel has a Redeemer. The Redeemer is not a mouse but a lion. Our actions have no bearing on His existence or His will. We shall be saved according to His whims, not our own weak statements of faith. Our weakness is not appealing to God, and our arrogance is worse. Our strength is in our hearts, where God has written His Word. When the Redeemer comes, He shall see and judge this strength.
Torah is the answer to all of our questions and problems.
The true problem with mankind is that most people can’t admit when they’re wrong.
This affects politics greatly. Promises made which can’t be kept. Votes cast which must be justified. Votes not cast which leads to militant apathy (“Don’t blame me, I didn’t vote!”). Environmental agendas waylaid by facts but still defended on sheer chutzpah, mainly to save face, but also to gain power and wealth.
The same applies to spirituality. Though the Law of God is clear, people create their own versions of the Law to suit their fear of being wrong. Christianity is the greatest offender, making Jesus Christ an enemy of the Law instead of its greated defender. Jesus died for Torah, not for your mistakes. He died for what’s RIGHT, not what’s WRONG. Islam also has twisted Torah, calling it still Tawrot, and utilizing many principles therein, including kosher (halal), circumcision, tallith (fringes), and so forth, yet with no thought given that Moses received the Law some 2000 years before Mohammed walked the Earth. Are the Jews blameless? No, for if they were, Jews would not lean towards gentile assimilation or collectivism not of Torah. But none can admit they are wrong.
we choose sides. Rather than understand
FACTS, and TRUTH, we choose sides out of emotions of fear, anger, and
TRUTH is that we cannot live without rules.
Even a man stranded alone must have rules of health, hunting food,
thought process, and other forms of stability.
Because this is a
The only question is, whose rules shall rule? Who’s in charge? What hegemony shall proliferate?
Come listen today to hear more about Torah hegemony.
Matthew 5:19: “Whoever does and teaches the least commandment shall be called greatest in heaven.”
What is the “least commandment”? Whichever one you THINK is least. Say that refraining from pork is the least, or say that not wearing wool and linen together in one garment is least – whichever you THINK is the least, is the least to you.
Now, if you DO the least commandment, are you not putting aside your own opinions for the sake of obedience? And if you put aside your own opinions for the sake of obedience, are you not humbling yourself to something greater than yourself? If your desires of eating, wearing, shaving, working, praising, sacrificing, and so forth, take precedence and priority over any commandment of God, are you not creating a hierarchy of importance? If you choose your own desire to each pork, are you not choosing your own desire over God’s commandment?
We cannot say that Jesus took away any such conflict, because He has already said that whoever teaches another to NOT do any least commandment, by example and education, is the LEAST in heaven (Matt. 5:19 also). So then, whoever teaches that Jesus took away the necessity to do any least commandment, whether by example or education, is not only the least in heaven, but is also saying that JESUS is the least in heaven. Is Jesus the least in heaven? I think not.
therefore established that Jesus cannot be both the greatest in heaven AND
someone who teaches another to break the least commandment, we must choose who
Jesus is. This we know by His actual
words. He SAID He did not come to
destroy the law, not the least bit of the Law (not a jot or tittle), and He
furthermore taught Law to His disciples, at the
But the apostles did NOT flee, and the Pharisees had to bring false witnesses to say that Jesus was a lawbreaker, and even then the false witnesses FAILED.
But even without that evidence, the doctrine of Christianity, which says that Jesus had to be perfect in the Law in order for Him to be what Christianity says He is, puts forward a LAWFUL Jesus, in both example and education, else He would not have been “perfect in the Law.”
Christ did not say, “I am perfect in the Law so you don’t have to be.” Christ said, “If you want eternal life, do the commandments.” Christ said, “Whoever does the least commandment and teaches others to do so shall be called greatest in heaven, but whosoever does not do the least commandment and teaches others so shall be called the least in heaven.” So it applies to everyone.
“Doing” is a work. Works, therefore, have great impact on how heaven looks upon each person. But we are all imperfect, and we both sin against the Law and fail to do it daily. Are we doomed? Of course not! We can pray and repent every day. In sincerity, we may renew our commitment to the Lord God and His Law by sincerely understanding and believing that we have transgressed something important, and seek to remedy it. It’s not over until it’s over, and therefore we have a daily chance to be cleansed, healed, and forgiven. And the Law provides the yearly Yom Kippur as well, when the High Priest washes clean the entire nation for its own, and for God’s name’s, sake.
“Teaching” refers to leadership. Failure to teach is one problem, but to teach AGAINST is the worst of all. Whoever does the commandments to the best of his or her ability, and teaches others to do so, is the greatest in heaven. Whoever does the commandments to the best of his or her ability, but fails to teach, has a few issues with God. Whoever does NOT do the commandments to the best of his or her ability, but teaches in favor of Torah, has some favor with God, though that person has a double standard or hypocrisy. But whoever does NOT do the commandments to the best of his or her ability, AND teaches others to also not do, is the least in heaven. That latter person is not only a sinner but also a blasphemer.
When Jesus said, “For I say unto you that unless your righteousness shall exceed the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, ye shall in no case enter into the Kingdom of heaven” the word “righteousness” does not mean an arrogant self-righteousness. Why would Jesus or God want you to exceed THAT? The word “righteousness” also does NOT mean your integrity, or your word, in what you do, for it is that we can have integrity, and keep our word, to do evil works, such as murder, rape, stealing, and crimes against God or society. The word “righteousness” means LAWFULNESS.
The Pharisees were strict AND lawful, but they also exceeded Torah by placing heavy burdens upon the people. And though Torah, as all law, authorizes the keepers of the law to make civil ordinances from Torah Law, the welfare of the people is paramount in order to keep the land sanctified. Thus, these particular Pharisees and scribes had lowered their lawfulness by permitting such things as special favors, superior seating at the table and in the Temple, money-changing at the Temple, and other actions that were not necessarily against Torah but which anyway caused many to get close to, and finally go beyond, what is lawful.
The Pharisees then attempted to police the people of the licentiousness which they themselves had permitted. For example, when the adulteress was brought to Jesus, that in itself was not against Torah, but to expect Jesus to rule in judgment when He was not an authorized member of the Sanhedrin was akin to vigilantism, which is frowned upon, if not forbidden, by Torah.
Christian doctrine teaches that Jesus sought soft-hearted forgiveness for the sinner, but in fact Jesus causes these vigilantes to leave not in shame, but FEAR, in knowing that the next mob might take one of THEM, and the next unlawful judge who was not Jesus might actually hold kangaroo court in the streets! Jesus told the adulteress, “Go and sin no more” which translates as “Go and be lawful.” In fact, “go” COULD mean “get out of town before the vigilantes come back.”
Let’s be clear. Jesus was Jewish. When he said to follow and teach least commandments, He was certainly speaking of Torah commandments. When He spoke to the Pharisees, it was not as an outsider to the religion, as a pagan with a bone to pick, but as a concerned member of the community with some fire in His belly, who spoke truth to power, and then His death. Jesus basically died while PROTECTING Torah, and He died FOR Torah. He did not die so that non-Jews, or Jews, who had no interest in performing the Law might walk about arrogantly, saying, “I’m not under the (oppressive) Law.”
These people Jesus would teach, “No, DO the Law.” If that did not take root, He would “shake the dust from his sandals” and move on to the next necessary destination.
It is impossible that the Jewish Jesus had Jewish disciples who agreed with breaking the Law, or that any such sect would not be immediately, and RIGHTFULLY, extinguished. It is impossible that such a heretic could be called “perfect in the Law.” No, Jesus WAS perfect in the Law, as much as we can comprehend that, and the reason He was perfect in the Law was NOT to “get it done already” so that you might evolve your own law from bits of Torah, Buddhism, Native American animism, your common sense, your compassion, and your experience. That is NOT what Jesus taught, even if some of those elements themselves are Torah-related, if not Torah-originated.
Come join us today to hear more on this and other great subjects!
Why are we destructive? Why are we so willing to destroy what we built? It is not truly to turn back the clock on guilt, or the tide on oppression. These things cannot be turned back. What’s done is done. Destroying the fabric of society does not change history, it only undoes the future.
The changing tide of civilizational hold over the temper of the world is nothing new. The Babylonians, Assyrians, Greeks, Romans, Mongols, and others have all had their day. But today is different. We live in the most technologically-freeing time that ever was. We have access to more information, wise and foolish, than can ever be digested or sorted. Do we propose to send ourselves back to the days of sewage in the streets, rats in the bedroom, and the dead collected in carts?
And why are we on this brink? Laziness in our luxuriant stupor? Fear of losing whatever small modicum of security we have? Apathy in mistrust of everyone? Or do some feel that “it’s just time” to let someone else rule over the natural resources and nuclear weapons? But why change? Will changing the guard solve anything. “Meet the new boss.. same as the old boss.” Who should be in charge?
These questions also plagued in the time of Isaiah. When the Jews were living in relative safety and prosperity, they did not recognize God in the same way. In today’s lesson, we learn that the Yom Kippur, the holiest day, and the day of great atonement, was looked upon as a chore, or a way to gloat over one’s own fasting, as a sport perhaps.

What is the purpose of chaos? Who wants it, and why?
We know there is a plan to cause chaos, and ultimately it comes from Satan. The need to see man’s handiwork destroyed, and God’s praise withheld is the highest aim of the devil. And there is no shortage of people who are enthusiastic to see this goal achieved. The savages, the corrupted, the hedonists, the collectivists, and the criminals all have a vested interest in chaos.
For the savage, it means the right to pillage, even kill. For the corrupt, it is the right to rule over law, and to have the power over life and death. For the hedonist, it is the rule over the body, in eating, sexual pleasure, and skin manipulation which is against God’s Law. For the collectivist, it is to force that which is repellant to men to be embraced by men, as slaves. And for the criminal, it is to work the system for simple lucre.
But what is the outcome for chaos? There must, after all, be order, unity, hegemony. Who will be in charge? Therefore, when we come to the end of this road, and ask this important question, it must be apparent that if evil triumphs, evil cannot become good. Savagery will not become peacefulness, corruption will not become humility, hedonism will not become propriety, collectivism will not respect the individual, and crime will not become lawfulness.
What then do the followers, never mind the leaders, of chaos hope to achieve??
Listen today to a good discussion that reaches deep into this topic. You won’t be disappointed.
The righteous perish, and no one takes it to heart…
But you--come here, you children of a sorceress, you offspring of adulterers and prostitutes!

God’s Grace brings personal peace.. but that doesn’t help a society to be peaceful.. unless Grace leads one to a common purpose under God.. and that is the Law of God.
There is no common purpose under God for those without the Law. All those without Law and under God are for their own agendas, whether those agendas cross-connect with Law or not. “Love” as an agenda has no common purpose unless there is Law to explain that agenda. Otherwise, a Law will be made for those without Law who still seek Law. Philosophers, pulpits, and compassion become the Law to those who seek Law, but not the true Law.
When there is Law, there are only a few choices: (1) statism, that is, collectivism, (2) corruption under a republic or democracy, (3) savagery of the jungle, bleeding into anarchy, or on the edge of libertine freedom, which leads to (4) hedonism, libertarianism without the Law. Crime ensues, disintegration of morality is a given.
Statism is against the Law of God because it is against God. Corruption cites the Law but hypocritically flouts it. Savagery makes God as blood without mercy. Hedonism is by definition against the Law of God because it is for the whims of men.
But if the Law of God is applied, one may have a republic, a democracy, a theocracy of collectivism, which does not transverse into savagery or hedonism not of the Law.
The question is, Why does man choose the more difficult, even impossible, road without the Law of God. The answer is, Men operate on principles of existentialism with as few boundaries as possible. Some call this libertarianism, and some even practice a true libertarianism which respects the rights of men AND Law, but mainly this is hedonism.
Come listen today and hear more on these words.
What is the antidote for lawlessness? Exertion of Law. What is the antidote for savagery? Lawful exertion of peace through lawful police strength? What is the antidote for corruption in the police and in government? Expectation of lawful means by those who rule and who are trained in force.
But when Law is neither expected nor exerted, everyone runs wild. Savages take to the street, burning, molesting, trespassing, harassing. Police take liberties not granted by law, expecting to be sheltered for their sacrifice of time in protecting society from savages. Government exploits all situation for monetary and power benefits.
Plato knew that only a benevolent dictator, a type of good fascist, might be counted upon to make things right. Yet, that fascist must also rule by underlying law. Ideally, by preexisting law, not by executive privilege. The BEST of such is Torah, which is ancient, of the chosen people, able to be properly translated, not savage but only firm, not in the corner of the rich or the poor, open to outsiders who abide.
Come with us today and learn more about what it means to have LAW in society, and STILL have love.
Why does Christianity deny that Jesus loved Torah and taught Torah? Jesus said, “Whoever shall do the least commandment, and shall teach others to do so, shall be called greatest in heaven. But whoever shall break the least commandment, and teach others so, shall be called least in heaven” (Matt ). Christians wiggle and worm here. They say, “Jesus was talking about the Beatitudes which come before.” Really? Those Beatitudes are not even commandments, but more like Proverbs, saying who is blessed. Even if these Beatitudes ARE commandments, Jesus, a Jew, hasn’t any business, or right, to change any commandment of God. And verily, he says, “I did not come to destroy the Law, not a jot or tittle. I came not to destroy but to DO (fulfill).”
But even here, the Christians wrestle. They say, “The only Law is the Law of Love!” Really? Which then is the “least” commandment of which Jesus speaks? We know the “greatest” commandments have to do with love – Love the Lord your God with your heart, might, and soul – Love your neighbor as yourself (both of which, by the way, are directly from Torah). But which are the “least” commandments? Why, whichever you THINK is least! What does this mean? It means that if you sneer at a particular commandment, snub your nose at it, refute it – it is least to you. But if you, thinking such commandment least, still perform it, AND teach others to perform it, you are the greatest, as far as God is concerned. Why?
Because you put yourself aside for God! You were humble! You taught the Law!
As the Psalm (32) teaches, to get close to God, we must humble ourselves by admitting our transgressions against the Law of God. Otherwise, God only hears our arrogant gums flapping.
In today’s lesson, we explore more about these things.
HOW STUPID ARE WE?
Much has been made of Jonathan Gruber’s comments regarding how Obamacare was sold, peddled, soft-soaped, and thrust on the people in a deceitful manner. In every regard, Gruber (who does not deserve the title “Mr.”) should be whipped in the public square. First, for being a conniver, fraud, and liar. But this is common, and his punishment here ought to be moderate. Second, for helping to destroy the known system of healthcare access, delivery, and/or repayment which most people either liked or with which they had comfort. But in this he was not alone, and there is policy to confront. Third, for his brazenness in telling everyone who would listen, before, during, and after Obamacare passed, that such laws can only pass with the help of a sleeping public, sheeple, stupid people, ignorant and dumb. Here, he crosses a line of moral inappropriateness and social calamity. For it is a short leap from being able to confess fraud without punishment to confessing murder without punishment. Yes, a very short step indeed.
But worse than Gruber is Nancy Pelosi, who spoke highly of him in years past, then feigned ignorance of him this past week. This woman is more responsible for the high crimes committed by Congress than is Gruber, and she ought to be punished accordingly. It’s more than just acting as if Gruber were a stranger to her. It’s telling the American people continuously, “You can keep your doctor” and “you can keep your policy” and “you have to pass it to see what’s in it (because obviously you will like what’s in it).” For each lie, deliberate or otherwise, there should be public lashes. For each deliberate lie, there should be prison also.
Pelosi is not alone. She is flanked by Stenny Hoyer, Chuck Schumer, Charlie Rangel, Chris Van Hollen, Harry Reid, and of course Baraq Obama. These and a host of others should be hanged by their thumbs until red. Their gall knows no bounds, their lies are without borders, and the damage they do to the psyche and morale of a country already in turmoil, nearly in civil war, is unforgivable. Oh, I’m not forgetting the actual lies they spilled, in print, on film, in the law itself! I’m not giving a pass for the illegal waivers Obama permitted, to which lawlessness Congress looked the other way. I’m not overlooking the many changes in the actual law which were taken without authority in order to make it conform to simpleton standard. I just think it’s more reprehensible to trick a stupid populace.
Yes, let’s be clear and honest. Most people in the world are stupid. They are not capable to discuss public policy without wincing, stuttering, surrendering, getting angry, or yawning. By “stupid” I mean unwilling, not unable. And this is what Gruber meant also. Gruber’s statement, that Obamacare was sold to a stupid public, doesn’t imply that you can’t understand it once it’s applied, but that you either can’t or won’t engage in a meaningful discussion beforehand. Gruber is saying that your hand must be forced, that YOU must be forced, to confront inequities in the healthcare system. But understand this…
The inequities Gruber is talking about are the ones he and his fellow MIT yahoos THINK are most important. If that means your deductibles go up, be damned! If that means your rates go up, don’t care! If that means you lose your doctor, oh well! Gruber believes that Gruber is the savior. Gruber believes that whatever Gruber does, irrespective of consequences, it’s good. And if it’s not good, it WILL be good. And if it’s still not good, it’s YOUR fault for not liking it, not implementing it, not giving it a chance, etc.
And here’s the hard truth – Gruber is right about one thing – that, for the most part, nobody wants to discuss healthcare, healthcare reform, or anything to do with entitlements, because in politics it’s the “third rail” and in the community it’s like politics and religion to most people: somewhat boring, infuriating when discussed, unfixable.
So we are now in Gruber-land, where if the public desires not to discuss a subject, or is otherwise satisfied with the status quo, a team of “experts” will be tasked by the government, at taxpayer expense, to design a system which suits the experts and government, but not necessarily the public. The excuse will be that the public had its chance and blew it, now it will be “fixed” by whichever party holds the power.
This is the same template now being used for immigration, that the people, not wanting blanket amnesty, are stupid, and that the Republicans had their chance. Therefore, the Democrats will ram through whichever irreversible damage suits them, whether that means not prosecuting illegals, permitting illegal immigrants to march in the street unmolested, or even giving children of illegal immigrants a break. It doesn’t matter whether John Q. Public is for it – that is just leverage to get the next step of the ladder down, to move the Overton Window of plausibility and tolerance for lawlessness.
And the public? It yawns. Oh, in between yawns, it makes a noise like outrage, but then back to shopping, eating, television, and other distractions. Are we stupid? Perhaps not. But we sure are spoiled to think that no matter what anyone does, or which law is passed in what way, our lives will not be negatively impacted to any severity, but will remain just as it was, or will even get better. Is that stupid? Or is that just normal human hopefulness which evil people use to their advantage?
Come hear Torah!
DEATHERS AND SLAVERS
Of the Five Evils, I think Corruption to be the worst.
Hedonism is a pestilence but it is unorganized, except by the corrupt. Crime is organized but does not provide enough to be condoned. Savagery is murderous but, when not controlled by Corruption, can be snuffed out without public outcry. Statism is all-encompassing, but there is the Platonic “benevolent dictator” who can make the Statism of lawfulness, and with Torah can make the Statism of God. But Corruption is the domain of those who purely want death and/or slavery.
Corruption is, in modern lay-language, the New World
Order. Or, as we like to say here at
Now, you might ask, and rightly so, what does Corruption, or the New (Old) World Order, gain by exterminating mankind? Don’t they need our numbers to farm, to perform labor of building and repairing, to transport? Don’t they need our varieties to devise new and better ways to live and do things? Yes and no. Before the technology of the transistor, men were necessary at all times. Since then (ca 1947), men have become increasingly obsolete. It’s not so much mechanization, or automation, or even Marx’s alienation of the proletariat. It’s not the labor-saving which threatens man. No, it is the machinery, the technology, itself.
Many have made similar statements. Some have adopted the RFID chip as mankind’s final falling card. Others think the “rise of the machines” a la Terminator is the end. I cannot say that I disagree. The MEANS to our end can certainly come by implanted chip, whether we such chip voluntarily (implanted cell phone being an obvious choice here) or it is forced upon us (let us say via vaccine, for example). The MEANS to our end can certainly come by way of robotic army, as is being manufactured at this moment, or by drones, or any combination of emotionless soldier or unmanned weapon.
In actuality, the technology itself is not the issue,
for it is that robots and drones, IN THE RIGHT
So, here are the questions we must ask to discover how ripe we are for slavery or death. (1) Are humans corrupt enough to use technology for enslaving or for genocide? Yes.
(2) Has Corruption ever attempted to enslave the entire world? Yes.
(3) Are there cadres of corrupt humans who believe in eugenics and depopulation? Yes.
(4) Is Corruption organized enough to mastermind worldwide enslavement or genocide? Maybe!
(5) Is the technology advanced enough to carry out such a master plan of Corruption? Maybe!
Thus, knowing that humans can be THAT CORRUPT, and that many bids for world domination have occurred throughout history, and that the self-appointed elite of this world hold views regarding complete domination of mankind’s decision-making, the only questions remaining are whether the technology is secured, and the organization wide enough, to make the goals of the corrupt accessible and achievable.
Let’s say for the moment that the technology is in place. I think we can agree that the civilized nations have placed their trust in the combustion engine, refrigeration, the computer, the GPS, and the cell phone. And that the military of Corruption, the New (Old) World Order, is mightily equipped with worldwide spying technology, kill switches, smart bullets, nano-robotics, mosquito drones, and not to mention good old-fashioned nuclear weaponry. In every case, then, except for the intervention of God, or conscience, Corruption can almost immediately shut down our technology while keeping their own working perfectly, placing all non-aligned people at an immediate disadvantage.
Add to this the wide array of super-viruses, chemical weapons, and targeted bombs, whether conventional, dirty, or neutron, and humanity has no chance to mobilize against a motivated and focused Corruption.
If all of this is true, our only hope is a schism at the top. Where Corruption meets, we must pray that Corruption dissents with itself. We must pray that there is more than one goal of Corruption. We must hope and pray that, within the inner chambers of Corruption, there are those who do not want to exterminate mankind but would rather only keep them enslaved. In other words, we must hope and pray that the elite are split between Deathers and Slavers.
We must hope and pray that the Slavers have made a valid enough argument for our continuation, or that the Slavers hold the upper hand. We must count on the last vestige of humanity in the soul of the Corrupt which has pity upon our smallness, and realizes our value, even our hidden value. We must hope and pray that the Slavers are strong enough to keep the Deathers from using the technology available against humanity. We must hope and pray that we have such an advocate for men, and proponent for Life.
And even among the Slavers, we must hope and pray for a benign slavery, as we are used to. That we should be allowed to continue in luxury, privilege, and bounty, even if unequal among us. We must hope and pray that within the Slaver influence there is a champion for freedom of expression and economics, which believes that men are enslaved best when they believe they are not enslaved at all. And we must hope and pray that the Slavers who would make us all farmhands and prostitutes (think Agenda 21) are outnumbered, outflanked, outranked, or just plain outvoted by the Slavers who would permit us our liberty.
For it is that the Constitution of the
But this freedom that we hold dear, this lap of luxury which we take for granted, is not a thing that exists without help. For it is that, from the beginning even until today, there are the elite who would rather we did not have such freedom and luxury, and there are the elite who would rather we do not exist at all.
And it does not matter that these latter elite see our collective excess as debauchery, or as wasting resources, or see our collective stupidity as a blight. They cannot be turned from the idea that the world would be a better place without our eating, drinking, smoking, entertainment, politics, religion, and, yes, our very breathing, which adds only carbon to the atmosphere and not one iota difference to evolution. Or so these elite believe.
And therefore we are either at the mercy of these Deathers, those elite who desire our collective death, or we are at the mercy of Slavers, those elite who desire our collective harnessing, as pack horses, for the good. I grant that the choice we have is barren, harsh, and hard to swallow, but I submit that we are subject to the whims of these two factions at all times.
Where are we now?
Who’s in charge, Deathers or Slavers? It’s difficult to say. The importation of Ebola into
One thing is certain: only God can rescue us now. And God can only rescue us if certain of the elite come to their senses. And the elite can only come to their senses when they stand down from their arrogance, from playing God. And this will only happen when they accept a Law greater than themselves. And this shall happen only when the Law becomes law for the greater part of the population. And this will only happen under Torah.
While it is not a foregone conclusion that we may be saved through Torah, it is a foregone conclusion that we will perish without Torah. The Law cannot be ignored without consequences. But whether the elite would destroy us if we all accepted Torah, that is a different dilemma, but we should rather be willing to die for Torah than to die for Hedonism, Crime, Savagery, Statism, or Corruption.
And so we have arrived. Five Evils at top speed careen forward.
CORRUPTION continues its spread among the human condition, from the most powerful men in the world to the least powerful. The willingness to despoil has always been, but now it is on the grandest scale. Those who were willing to steal are now willing to commit mass murder for it, or to remove wealth for good, returning civilization to a medieval state of complete dependency. It’s not only that the rich grow richer, or that government continues to collude with corporation. It’s also that The Mark is being taken by many more every day. Good people are turning from goodness in order to keep buying and selling. They ignore corruption, so it grows. The elected are corrupt, but the voters keep reelecting them. There is no outcry for impeachment, no uprising of any magnitude. The sheep sleep, corrupted by the fake money and real luxuries.
SAVAGERY continues its spread also. The Islamist becomes bolder, beheading, annexing. No mercy shall be gathered there, and it shall spread until they win or Torah wins. Savagery emboldens savagery. In the civilized nations, radicalism grows daily. Not protests against injustice, but violence in the name of manufactured crises. Marches with Molotov cocktails in the name of slain hoodlums. In the name of unlived slavery, Twitter mobs enter stores to cause damage and harm. People are knocked out at bus stations because savage youth is bored. Fight clubs exist in formerly genteel communities. Road rage grows because driving is more aggressive, and driving is more aggressive because city planners nearly desire savagery. Bureaucrats of untold corruption manipulate society to their whim, either not understanding or not caring about human reaction.
STATISM continues to spread
also. The old guard,
CRIME continues to spread also. The crimes of corruption, savagery, and statism are many, but there is also a growing mindset to join power. If not geopolitical power, many fatherless boys join gangs and cartels, eager for a little cash, and fun in exploitation. It matters not anymore for conscience. Sex slavery, drug mule, kidnapping – this and more has no effect on their heart. And, as always, mafias control several key industries, and power in government. HEDONISM continues to spread also. The culture of death expands daily. People enjoy not only their slow death in opiates, alcohol, and pills, but also their quick death in supporting assisted suicide, unnecessary wars, and open borders which are invitations for terrorists, criminals, and diseases. They smoke their herbs and sniff their aerosols while the other evils run rampant over them. They abort, then deny the life they snuffed for their own life. They don’t care that Monsanto admits to stealing land by permitting their trespassing seed to blow onto unsuspecting farms, or that the food grown from these seeds can transmute the body. They desire the transmutation from human to the unknown species which requires the altered food, water, air, light, and other things the elite demand be changed. The human thus transmuted desires not Law, that bonding of society through mutual assent of boundaries, but every form of taboo. They desire unnatural sex, unnatural bodies, and the permission to be wicked. The strictness of religion is, to them, bad, but radical paganism and open witchery to them is, if not good, at least not wrong.
CHRISTIANS MUST ACCEPT TORAH if this world is to be saved. There are not enough Jews, and certainly not enough Torah Jews, to make the difference. Only 2 billion Christians exerting the Law of God can reverse the complete takeover of the Beast. Acceptance of Jesus is a good start, and helps you to find your own salvation, but it does not save the world. It is a shame that, from the start, Christians have been taught to avoid anything Jewish, as if Torah is harmful. If Torah is harmful, why did Jesus perform it completely? If Torah is harmful, why did Jesus say, “Whoever teaches the least commandment shall be called greatest in heaven”? Christians who fight against Torah are mainly hedonists who fear giving up certain pleasures of food and relationship, hedonists who fight against Torah because they believe their freedom is more important than society, more important than the Word of God. Their idea of Jesus is someone who saves them from Torah, when in fact Jesus is someone who saves from sin, and sin is the breaking of Torah commandments, which is why the church teaches we are all sinners who cannot keep the whole Law. While that is true, it is not an excuse to give up trying, especially since Jesus was no example of such surrender, but completely lawful in Torah, for the doctrine says he was sinless. If Jesus had the attitude of today’s Christian, he would have done as he pleased, teaching sin. In such case, he would not be worthy of praise, and the Pharisees wouldn't have needed any false witnesses against him.
BUT ENOUGH PRE
As you know, I am in favor of a Torah Nation and world. As you also may know, I believe there are Five Evils to confront at all times, and that we are now in a state of the world which is in crisis on all five fronts at once.
Let's look at this week's Five Evils Report:
1) SAVAGERY. By savagery, we mean a propensity to commit violence and murder in a barbaric fashion, with a purpose of domination. While savagery can also be applied to other evils, there is a barbarism which seems endemic to a people, almost genetic. As usual, the Muslims are at the top of the heap here. And for those who cry out that there are moderate Muslims, where are they? Their silence is a tacit agreement to the Caliphate that looms over all of us. If it were just a few thousand Muslims, we could live with their craziness and eradicate them swiftly. But if even 10% of Muslims are barbaric, that's 150 million savages.
The big news this week is that the

None of this changed anything.
Antisemitism continued this week, with some pushback from pushy Jews, who were instantly vilified as TEA Party members. Dossiers available in the lobby.

Fast food workers ended their strikes with a whimper when it was discovered that unemployed MBA’s were lining up for their $15 per hour jobs.
And Obamacare went on a rampage this week, destroying billions of dollars in pension funds, an unintended consequence. When interviewed, Obamacare called the charges bogus and racist.
3) CORRUPTION. Leon Pannetta made
a surprise visit to 60 Minutes this week to let us know that when

Turning to weather, heavy cowers are expected throughout the nation.
5) HEDONISM. A news reporter quit her job on-air, saying she was a hypocrite for running an anti-marijuana story while at the same time heading up a pro-pot organization. Supporters exhaled a sigh of relief.
Homosexuals were enraged this week to find their fab-ness stolen by Gallo Nero, who stole their thunder by advertising “straight” ice cream. Flavor of the week was “ingratitude for helping you stem AIDS epidemic so you might continue having unnatural and immoral sex.” Mayor Debasio is set to lead a march against this “blow to humanity.”
Atheism made news by opening a foxhole factory. Critics who claimed that such foxholes are invisible and therefore don’t exist were ridiculed.
That's it for now. Goodnight and have a Torah week.
As you know, I am in favor of a Torah Nation and world. As you also may know, I believe there are Five Evils to confront at all times, and that we are now in a state of the world which is in crisis on all five fronts at once.
Let's look at this week's Five Evils Report:
1) SAVAGERY. By savagery, we mean a propensity to commit
violence and murder in a barbaric fashion, with a purpose of domination. While savagery can also be applied to other
evils, there is a barbarism which seems endemic to a people, almost genetic. As

silence is a tacit agreement to the Caliphate that looms over all of us. If it were just a few thousand Muslims, we could
live with their craziness and eradicate them swiftly. But if even 10% of Muslims are barbaric,
that's 150 million savages. We have seen
this past week more beheadings, more destruction of property, more threats,
more declarations of war. In the past couple of weeks, missing planes in the Libyan Embassy,

We also seem to have a problem with black youth. Riots in cities over things which happened far away. Flash mobs looting in malls. Knockout violence of random nature. Once again, I cannot debate with you whether protecting yourself is lawful, biblical, or racist. You'll just have to hit hard now and go to therapy later.
2) STATISM. Putin is making
tremendous inroads into
Common Core met a small defeat last week, but it's not dead. The only thing that can kill it is a benevolent dictator. I am open for business in that regard. The education system continues to pump out brainwashed pansies who think girls are demigods but boys are animals, that homosexual is cool but being normal is not.
the mayor of
And Obamacare, meeting a defeat in the courts, has decided the courts are wrong and to go on with redistributing wealth anyway.
3) CORRUPTION. The New World Order integrated its factions this week, promenading Hillary Clinton around Iowa to draw attention away from Obama golfing, which draws away attention from the fact that America funds ISIS, which draws away attention from the border, which draws away attention from Ebola, which draws away attention from Benghazi, which draws away attention from Fast and Furious, which itself was a diversion.
The Fed continued to pump out the fake money unabated, even as tax receipts reached a new high, causing some to ask, "If you're gonna print, why do you need my taxes?" This drew an immediate SWAT response. Four dead, including a dog.
Glenn Beck continued his tirade against anyone who disagrees with him, and feigned more ignorance who Alex Jones is or what Building 7 might be. 9/11 came and went without a victory in hand again. And the TSA, NSA, and DHS felt up and spied upon a record number of travelers who enjoy being slaves.
4) CRIME. The topper of the list this week was learning that the Mexican cartels are not only running sex slave rings and drug mules into America, and not only dropping illegals into every possible spot, but are also inserting terrorists over the border. Why not? Our border guards do nothing anyway. And before you criticize the criticism, aim your gun over that way.
Mafia topped the charts again this week on IMDB, and glorifying crime and the thug culture hit new heights when a rap party turned into a shoot-em-up and TMZ was there to film the whole thing, for your pleasure. Exposure of entertainers as former pimps, drug lords, and even murderers failed to dent the charts.
5) HEDONISM. Marijuana made a name again for itself by failing to produce enough tax revenue to justify its legalization. When questioned, nobody cared. More transportation wrecks are noted due to pot use, but these were overshadowed by increased alcohol-related accidents by drunk illegals.
Ray Rice made the news for hitting his wife, proving that Americans can really get behind something very trivial when they put their mind to it. Female Ravens fans jeered Rice by wearing his jersey for Monday Night Football. ESPN publicly apologized for these women, but those sportcasters were immediately dismissed for being insensitive.
More abortions were performed than ever before last week, but experts are sure these will decrease with the rise in homosexuality.
Tattoos continue to mark up bodies everywhere in celebration of "Drunk Night Out" Day. Bacon was the #1 tattoo of the week. If that offends you, you need sensitivity training.
That's it for now. Goodnight and have a Torah week.
We continue into the Truth of the matter, the heart of the matter, which is that the Law of God is rejected, and therefore nations stumble and fall, and therefore the people of the Law of God are persecuted. Those who follow the Law of God are persecuted for issuing warnings concerning rejection of the Law of God, while those who were supposed to follow the Law but didn’t (Jews, Christians) are persecuted for NOT following the Law! Nevertheless, those who reject God’s Law will be applauded by evil, but the prophets of Truth shall be vilified by EVERYONE!
What is the Truth? 1) That God exists. Here, you will meet your first stumbling block from the minority of non-believers, who have found their strength in a weak society, where they thrive, and in a government which does not serve the majority, as true democracy, but the minority, as a fascism of that minority. More to the point, the atheists, homosexuals, and devil worshipers have found friends within the Supreme Courts. This affects every person, forcing tolerance where none needs to be socially, never mind religiously or spiritually. The minority sneers at , cries against, whines about, and finally sues the majority which keeps the minority in its true place, not equal. Sympathizers join in. A media with an agenda, not objective, chimes in. Soon, a cacophony of boos and banana peels against the majority. And the result? A loss of morale among the majority. And this matters why?
When the chips are down, and this is coming VERY soon,
the majority will have no interest in helping the minority, except for the sake
of the common land which both occupy.
The minority will scream for help because, let’s face it, there aren’t
enough atheists, homosexuals, and devil worshipers to beat back the Muslims or
the communists. In the past, this sort
of talk was ALSO grist for the mocking mill.
But now that the Caliphate mentality is spreading everywhere, and both
I have foreseen and written about every bit of
this. The Mark and the Chaos, available
for free, delineates what exactly the Mark of the Beast and the Mark of God
are, and exactly who the players will be in a global showdown. Some might say, “That’s not exactly a
difficult thing to predict,” but those same people were only a few years ago
mocking those predictions! Caliphate? Unthinkable.
Communism arisen again? How
weakened from within and begging for a charismatic leader? No way.
Jews persecuted again as the scapegoats for all things? We have evolved. No, you haven’t.
But you see how far afield we go already when discussing whether God exists? Because those who say they disbelieve God really mean they are not interested in participating in the struggles of mankind. They view all this chaos as due to religion. And they logically assume that if God is such a great guy, such a cool dude, either the religion(s) would reflect that coolness, that greatness, or God Himself would make Himself known and set quite a few things straight.
We can argue their logic and conclusions, but even if we stipulate how right they are, the main complaint is not against God, but against His representatives on Earth. For it is that the atheists, homosexuals, and devil worshipers all desire a powerful hand to protect them, as all do, but they cannot turn to God for that protection due to their anti-God stance. Or, more accurately, their anti-Torah stance.
2) Torah. Torah is Law. Law sets the standard for all things. It tells how men shall behave, both in private and public. It tells how communities and nations shall treat citizens. When the law is flouted, there is crime. It’s interesting that those who reject the notion of Torah, that is, a Law from God, desire protection themselves under two godly documents, the Constitution and Torah!
From Constitution, the ungodly believe they have equal rights under a 14th Amendment, or a 1st Amendment, but these Amendments speak to the rights of citizens to be free from a certain amount of regulation from government, not from each other. So that, when the minority gain access to government, and thereupon utilize government to protect their interests, they break the very Constitution they say is there to protect them. No, the Constitution is not there to protect people from people – those are community laws, each different among the many – the Constitution is there to protect the people from too much government intervention. And if the minority is able to use government intervention against the majority, the Constitution is no longer.
Likewise, Torah. When the minority exerts that men should love their neighbor, that is Torah. Yet that same Torah tells to kill the man who commits a homosexual act, who is convicted in a court of Torah law. That same Torah commands to love God with all your heart, soul, and might. That same Torah commands to destroy the Canaanite, the Baal worshiper, the Moloch worshiper, and the blasphemer.
So if the Constitution were truly exerted, the will of the majority, the godly, would win the day, every day. And if the Torah were truly exerted, the will of God would win the day, every day.
What would the nation be at such a point? First, the minority would have no access to special protections which the Constitution does not afford, for the Constitution is not there to force people to accept people, the Constitution is there to force government to accept people whom the communities have decided they accept. So if the communities accept Jews but not Muslims, the government cannot intervene through Constitution, but only by a civic action which they think overrides Constitution. Their opinions, their feelings, their thoughts are more important than the law of the land. The mere fact that great throngs cheer these unconstitutional moves does not override the Constitution. Only an Amendment to the Constitution can change it. But that is too difficult, in fact, impossible for the minority to achieve. And so it is rage, collusion, illegality, stacked courts, and lawsuits against the weakened which temporarily give the minority an upper hand.
Second, the minority would not survive a Torah nation. But then, neither would the adulterers and bacon-eaters. For in a Torah nation, no commandment is too small to be ignored, and no doctrine overrides the eternal law. In a Torah nation, Jesus Christ would be heeded, that “whoever teaches against the least commandment is called the least in heaven.” Apologists who say they are not teaching against commandments, but only explaining the grace which Christ gives Christians to break commandments, willfully, are even worse. In a Torah nation, neither the heathen nor the self-proclaimed permitted lawbreaker survive.
And this is good. For in a Constitutional nation, the Law is supreme, and those who are against that law are criminals, and those who are radicals against that law are traitors. The idea that civil rights are gained by civil disobedience is incorrect. Lawbreaking deserves punishment. Whether the Constitution is amended is a different point. It cannot be assumed that the Constitution will be amended due to radicalism. It must be assumed that the communities shall be able to quell radicalism by their own means without government intervention.
Now, some may say that such rampant lawfulness leads to lynching and vigilantism. But those are crimes also. The solution is not to destroy the community for the sake of peace, but to permit the community to police itself. These are hard choices, to be sure. Civil wars are sometimes fought over such things. But if the government enters the civil war, the end is fascism over everyone, and the resulting quiet is called peace, but it is a police state, and whoever controls that police state will conduct that civil war anyway.
Under Torah, there is no escape. Torah cannot be amended. Jesus Christ cannot change anything, and he specifically said he did not come to change Torah, not a jot nor a tittle, and it is completely ascribed to him by Christianity that he performed his Torah duties perfectly. How then can the followers of Christ not desire Torah? It is due to lawlessness, in this case the desires of hedonism, all justified by certain phrases made by Jesus, Paul, Peter, and so forth, including the claim that pork is permitted. How now? I don’t see a clamor for horse-meat to be legal, or rat flesh. Only pig, because it “tastes good.” The idea that God made it clean through a dream of Peter, or a random contextual phrase from Paul, or Christ, is not a Torah argument, nor is it true! For the dream of Peter concerns the uncleanliness of Gentiles, the thoughts of Paul are summed up on "Do you have faith? Have it to yourself in front of God," and the words of Jesus concerned unwashed hand, pots and pans, none of which is commanded under Torah. So Christ was right and lawful, but Christianity uses his lawfulness to justify their unlawfulness.
And it is not a small thing that pork is of conflict. For neither do the Christians have any intention to give up this “freedom to eat.” And neither do they care that the Jews, their friends, they say, are underwhelmed by this freedom, or that such contentions in the past led to the slaughter of Jews, from the time to Constantine until the present day, depending where you live(d). So that Torah is undone, and those who proclaim the Law of God, yes, even where it concerns bacon, are persecuted because they are in favor of the Law.
“But,” you may say, “if you believe the majority holds sway over the community, shouldn’t bacon be lawful in the community?” According to democracy, yes. According to Constitution, yes. But there is one larger context, and that is God. Thus, if we return to the very first premise and Truth, that God exists, it becomes an hypocrisy for the Christians to say they believe in God, and God’s Law, but thereupon use many reasons and excuses to break God’s Law, to eat bacon because it “tastes good.” Christ did not die so you could eat bacon. Rather, He died so you would continue to not eat bacon. He died for the Law of God, not for your selfish desires.
And the atheists, homosexuals, and devil worshipers? Their “bacon” is bolder. And it is of little use for the Christians to complain about God’s Law being broken by the atheists, homosexuals, and devil worshipers, as long as the bacon continues. So, the Christians have four choices: 1) continue to eat the bacon, and look the other way while the atheists, homosexuals, and devil worshipers thrive, 2) stop eating the bacon, and have every right to persecute the atheists, homosexuals, and devil worshipers, 3) continue to eat the bacon, and have no right to persecute the atheists, homosexuals, and devil worshipers, but do so anyway in a hypocritical rage, or 4) stop eating the bacon, and permit the atheists, homosexuals, and devil worshipers to thrive.
Of those choices, #1 is the worst of all possible worlds, #3 is the current incorrect atmosphere, and #4 makes no sense at all. Only choice #2 is lawful and logical.
I realize that such statements offend every single person mentioned. That is a necessary consequence of spreading Truth. Shalom.

"The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing." - Edmund Burke
When we view the chaos and carnage in today's world, several questions come
to mind. First, wasn't it just a few scant years ago that things seemed
peaceful? Well actually, it's been about 20 years since things were
"peaceful." Twenty years ago is when Bill
Clinton finally pushed us too far: His marital infidelity, his
By the time Gore and Bush openly fought over who won 2000,
Twenty years ago, racial divisions were a bit better. Rodney King wanted us all to get along. OJ Simpson's "victory" gave many blacks an opportunity to gloat. Bill Cosby was one of the most popular syndicated TV shows of all time. And rap music was still not exactly mainstream. Today, we have a "black" President who enjoys inciting riots and fanning flames. Yes, enjoys.
But this isn't new. Louis
Farrakhan has been around a long time, as have Al
Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, and the usual bunch of
criminals and nuts who parade. Give them credit, though, for longevity
and their ability to command attention, if not respect. No black alive today
was ever a slave in
What would the Panther movement be without the Weather
Underground? And if you think Bill Ayers is dead and forgotten, you're
wrong. He is still advising the White House, spreading communism at
That's the second question: Why?
What is wrong with us that we would permit Fox to air Ayers without making a gigantic stink? To me, Ayers is one of the most dangerous people in America.
These are just examples. There are probably 1000 people globally I could name who need to be offed tomorrow in order to make this world less savage, less corrupt, less Marxist, less criminal, less hedonist. That's in America, Russia, China, Saudi Arabia, Iran, Central America, Mexico, Colombia, Venezuela, Pakistan, Gaza, Nigeria, Libya, and several other places of interest; basically, one thousand of these people so that the rest of us can breathe again.
Now, you might ask, and rightly so, wouldn't the vacuum simply be filled with more evil? If those people die natural deaths, of course. If it's a coup from within, naturally. But I was talking about the less probable event, that good people would take things into their own hands.
Is that an oxymoron that good people should or would take things into their own hands? I think the thought that it seems like an oxymoron is what keeps good people from doing right things. They think, "I'm not going to stoop to their level." And so the evil continues while good people do nothing, all in the name of having a clear conscience. Or so they think. It's really for vanity, so other people will say what a good person they are for not stooping to such-and-such level. Meanwhile, evil continues as good people pat themselves on the back.
And make no mistake: evil people know how good people think, and evil people pat good people on the back for not making waves. That's why on TV you see even some CONSERVATIVES getting compliments for accepting evil - compliments from evil people!
And this brings us to our third question: If good people are going to do nothing, how will good people finally win the day? Or, more simply, will a miracle occur?
If you're waiting for God to bring things to balance again, I'm with ya on that. However, good people standing around waiting for Him is the reason He has to come in the first place! If we wouldn't stand around yakking about the next Coming, and would in fact do something outside of our vanity, God wouldn't need to bail us out because He's already given us the grace to accomplish what needs to be done. It is completely vain to think that we are good people for doing nothing, or for tenderly applying ourselves to tough objectives, or for withdrawing from confrontation. And it is completely vain to think that God is on our side when we've done nothing except proclaim how righteous we are for doing nothing!
So, just on that subject, we need more than a miracle. We need God to overlook how completely selfish and hedonistic we are. Hedonistic? Yes. Remember, Revelation 13 tells us that, to permit the continuance of buying and selling (economy, eating and drinking), "good people" took the Mark of the Beast. Taking the Mark of the Beast simply means to allow evil to run rampant, as long as your lifestyle isn't too negatively impacted. It's a form of privilege, to think that no matter what you do, you're safe, or that you're just being pragmatic. Well, you're not safe. And pragmatism isn't stopping evil from spreading.
So what are we actually waiting for? Are we hoping evil will just die off on its own? I have news for you - it won't. We didn't nip it in the bud, we didn't make examples of anyone, and now there is an entirely new generation of militant radicals who have no fear of God, and who have an entire lifetime to work at controlling, or destroying.
Islam? Reared from birth. New, young converts every day.
Corruption in government? Brand-new staffers and interns every day, learning the ins and outs of graft, nepotism, favoritism, and all the things we love about government.
Statism? Nationalistic socialism is always the breeding ground of the poor, and if there's one thing the young love to purport they endorse, it's the end of poverty. Especially their own poverty. So we now see dozens of neo-Nazi groups popping up in the unlikeliest of places. Likewise, Communism is annually groomed in our universities, even high schools. And always the unionization of the impoverished, as if unionization automatically gives the poor the sophistication necessary to get what they want, or to fight the corruption inherent in that socialism.
Crime? If the new rap
generation doesn't scare you, perhaps the pace at which gangs are growing, due
to increase in fatherless children, due to mindless acceptance of
single-motherhood, will scare you. Or perhaps you think our cities, such as
And hedonism? Forget about it. Whether its sensuality, ingestion of pharmacopeia, piercing of skin, acceptance of paganism, or just plain eating and drinking, everybody is out of control. Youth is not more clean-cut than the older generation, which is scary by itself, to think that the oldsters are also juvenile in mind. I was a youth, and I did youthful things, but in the end I wanted to be accepted for who I was, as a good person. Today's youth wants to be accepted no matter what they do, good or bad. Their motto is not "you can't judge a book by its cover" (true) but "you can't judge me!" (false). That is an exertion of hedonism as hegemony! Sodom and Gomorrah, in other words.
So we cannot simply think better times are coming. We are not evolving spiritually, but decaying into pagans. We are not evolving towards holiness, but simply tolerating evil. We are not evolving physically, except the most savage will defeat the weak and fey, which means the Muslims win. Except the Old World Order has better weaponry. However, it's in evil hands. Hmm. Maybe I can just "accidentally" hit the chessboard and start the game all over?
We are in the same position as every other great empire or civilization, which is to say we are poised for greatest downfall. As Isaiah, we attempt to alert whoever will listen that what we are seeing is a complete absence of Torah, from the way that we worship to the items which we eat to the government which we endure, if not demand.
“Who hath believed our report?” Today’s lesson is that the “suffering servant” is one who is not desired by men but who nevertheless speaks as a reflection of the Law of God. Think Jesus is the suffering servant? Then you must acknowledge Him as the bearer of the Law, for all to hear and obey. Think Jesus came so you did not have to obey? You are WRONG.
What is “despised” and “rejected” is not Jesus, for His life is of little difference to any other person who is persecuted merely for his heritage or family tree. What is despised and rejected is God’s Law, Torah.
Those who claim Jesus came to relieve them from the Law despise the Law. Those who claim the Law was twisted by the Jews despise the Law. Those who claim there is no God despise the Law. Those who claim the Law represses their rights despise the Law.
It has no comeliness for them. It is ugly and disgusting to them. Consequently, the Jews, the bearers of the Law, are likewise ugly and disgusting to them. The hatred towards the Jews is the hatred of the Law. What are Jews? They have money? So do many others. They have power? So do many others. This jealousy of what the Jews have is not of their money or power, but of the fact that God chose them, and specifically to bear the Law.
Geopolitical much? Some people complain that we spend too much time on what’s happening in the world, as if ignoring these events is the path to greater spiritual enlightenment. That is a subjective and, frankly, incorrect view.
Whenever the prophets of the Bible chose to remain alof from current events, especially as it concerns God’s people, God called them harder and louder. Whether Moses, Jonah, Jeremiah, or Jesus, the Lord God shows us we cannot run away to hide in the desert/wilderness. We cannot ignore the absence of Torah.
In this week’s segment (actually a TWO-hour show!), we stray far and wide regarding the slaughter of Christians, the rising anti-Semitism, the American border crisis, and many other issues of interest and disgust for those who understand history and Torah. Join us.
We are just about there.
If you haven’t noticed, the present
federal government for the
And what else would Jesus require of you but to be a community organizer for Torah? For He told His disciples to go to every house and speak to them. Not about acquiescing quietly to slavery, or permitting corruption, or accepting savagery, or encouraging hedonism. No. Jesus did not eat with publicans and prostitutes because He was a hedonist, He ate with them because there is no Torah commandment forbidding them. But He would not sup with the corruptors of Torah. Nor would He tolerate the adulteress but told her, “Go and sin no more!”
But today we live in an upside-down world, where Christianity is a religion which is expected to do no more than help those whom the federal government tells it to help. Tolerance of sin is the norm Weak-willed spinelessness. False compassion for the sake of hearing no guff. It is taking the Mark of the Beast to permit sin in order to live in peace!
And where are the Jews? There is some
resistance to complete enslavement and corruption, here and there, in
Meanwhile, the Muslims are on the march. And the communists are on the rise. As we wrote in our book “The Mark” in 2007, communism and Islam are in tandem against capitalism and Christianity, and are on a collision course for changing world history. You don’t care? You will.
This is only the beginning. The Mexican-US border will be opened up, and
crime will spread rapidly. People will
be shot breaking into homes and businesses.
People ask us, “Why do you spend so much time on the geopolitical, on the political, on the conspiratorial?” The question itself speaks volumes. For when we question, we are not wise in our eyes but we seek Truth. But if we do not question, it means we are satisfied for the moment. Are we satisfied at the moment? No!
Five evils are in this world. Savagery (the current “winner” for most
overt: Islam), Corruption (the current winner: New World Order, or, OLD World
Order), Statism (call it what you will, communism, socialism, collectivism),
Crime (gangsters), and Hedonism (
As students of history, we can honestly say “we have never seen it this bad in human history.” Besides the confluence of the rise of all these Evils, combined with a great ebb in Torah thought, both among Jews and Gentiles, there is technology. Never before has it been so simple to transmit military plans, diseases, devastation. Never before has it been so easy to catch communications from enemies and supposed enemies. Never before has the planet been a place where there is almost literally “nowhere to hide.”
The Mark of the Beast is the willingness to go along with Evil in order to maintain life or lifestyle (to “buy and sell,” as it says in The Book of Revelation). With this confluence of Evil about, it is a simple enough matter for a person to say in his or her conscience, “I just want peace,” or “I just want to live my life,” or “What can I do about it?”, and to do nothing. With technology, it is also easy enough to become lost in a permanent escape. The formula for disaster is plain.
What can we do? Accept Torah.
And not only accept, but believe. Believe and do.
If we will turn from our sins, which are from the Law, and nowhere else, and expect, no, force, our public officials to do likewise, we will have a society worth having again. It is force which is necessary. It is might which is necessary. The “sword of the Lord” is not a sheathed instrument that never comes out. The sword of the Lord IS Torah.
It is time, no, well past time, for good people to claim their Law, the Law of God, Torah, and defeat, beat back, the enemies of mankind, who would enslave and murder.
Hatred for the Law. Hatred of oneself. This is what we see in our society and civilization today.
What we call “Western Society” has decided that God’s Law, Torah, is NOT the protective shield, but rather a forward mouth and discord are the protective devices, and therefore “calamity” shall come quickly (Proverbs 6:12-19). Not refraining from male homosexuality, but affirming and seeking it as a right, even a birthright. Not refraining from abortion (deliberate killing of life, which is murder), but celebrating it as a godsend to the poor and the fearful. For it is that a fearful world seeks not God but men who make laws in their favor, to comfort them.
Western Society has also decided that it is guilty. There is self-loathing for being white, being an oppressor, being a colonialist, being wealthy, being a man, being consumerist. Other than being an oppressor, none of these things are wrong. Even being an oppressor against anti-Torah sinners is not wrong. Yet it is “trendy” to hate oneself, to desire one’s own demise at the hand of one’s own enemy. It is trendy to desire slavery, and the end of an empire.
For what? If there is atonement needed for the self, repent! If there is atonement needed for society, follow Torah! Otherwise, it shall be savagery that rules you, fascism, corruption, crime, and lascivious desires of brutality, deviance, and death.
In this recording, we discuss how it
is that God shall save all of
The collectivists tell you what you “need.” They tell you what you need beyond what they say you need is… selfish, guilty, racist, denier, dangerous, psychotic. In reality, they project. It is selfish to control behavior to satisfy your own goals regarding ego, conquest, or even do-gooding crusader-ship. In fact, “Crusader” is the tern reserved for religious conquests, and therefore the scientific crusaders are as hypocritical as it gets. The religious crusaders are right at least in their passion that God has commanded certain things. And when it comes to commands, we know Torah is the King, in fact the Only Law. When God commands, “Thou shalt have no other god before me,” he means no other LAW. For if you regard someone or something as god, you obey it.
Why then should anyone bow to the whims of collectivists, whether sincere or not, when there is God who has beforehand set our limits?
It is the collectivist who is guilty of usurping God.
It is the collectivist who is racist, determining which races are too weak to fend for themselves.
It is the collectivist who is the denier of things which are foundational. The progressive believes the way forward is in the hand of man, not God.
It is therefore the collectivist who is dangerous. Psychotically so. For when confronted, it is the collectivist who will attack with fury the person who varies, the individualist.
Why then is Torah collectivism good? First, it is humble, because it notes that man is not ultimately in charge of all things. Second, it is, among all religious laws, the fairest without being squeamish. The account of the Sabbath-Breaker (Numbers 15:32-36) shows that, when confronted with Torah, even the best of us (Moses) can become collectivists in “compassion” rather than obedience. When asked what to do with the Sabbath-breaker, God’s response to Moses was, “I already told you to kill him.” And so they did.
The achievement over collectivism is the humility to God. We do not have greater answers than He. It is the cleansing of society which we fear, lest we be called names. Or, attacked ourselves by those who believe they know better.
Over and over again, God tells us that we should not take The Mark of the Beast, in that we should not refrain from the Law of God because we be afraid of other men (51:7).
Whether it is the Jew who is hiding his identity from virulent Gentiles (Christian, Muslim, pagan, atheist) or even from himself (!);
or whether it is the Christian who pretends that much Torah is inactive in trade for the death of Jesus, though Jesus Himself declaimed such things, and Christianity in every regard utilizes parts of Torah as if it were stem-celling, all for the sake of being part of a community afraid to lose personal security;
or whether it is the Muslim who tells himself that murder is warfare, simply (and understandably!) because his community is filled with violent gatekeepers who shall not permit Torah to enter their hearts;
or whether it is the hedonist who knows what is right and wrong (for is it not written on the heart?), yet fears that his “freedom” and “right” shall be taken away if he does not demonstrate every perversity which he believes not, in order to salvage his own compulsions, whether sexual, psychoactive, or monetary;
or whether it is the atheist (what is an atheist?) who is afraid that he shall not be rational, or, more to the point, that he shall not be KNOWN or SEEN as rational, and therefore does not admit, even to himself, that his self-proclaimed “morality” is but a figment of Torah, portions absconded and sewn together in salivating theory, without God, proud of oneself without thanking a source;
and here the world of fat and lazy men teeters on the edge, as centuries of hatreds and jealousies pours over borders, hands grabbing for that which is not truly theirs, with lies regarding inheritances stolen, yet only savage banshees who haven’t the inclination to fit in, conform, or be lawful to any degree;
and the fat and lazy sit on their bank accounts, their Grace, their virgins, their habits, their reason, believing that one or the other shall be spared the fire and guillotine of those crazed by covetousness, a massive ball of energy untargeted, left rotting in the streets of affluence, told they are “special” since the day they were born (whether fed or hungry), until their belief of entitlement morphs into grabbing hands without Torah;
yet even these shall have to account in from of their own, when the wild eyes look towards THEIR bowl, as the hungry infected are not satisfied with only the rich and luxurious, but must destroy the “impure” of their own basis (whatever that may be), and true carnage reigns throughout a world on fire…
Accept Torah, the most perfect Law from the most perfect God, and fashion your law from it, within it, never outside it. Integrate Torah into your family life, your community, your church, your groups, your government, your Constitution. Defend your righteousness in Law and Torah against those who would crack you open due to their filth, abomination, curse, hatred. Do not permit them to bribe you with promises of golden roads, mansions, virgins, here-and-now, pleasures, whoredom, or false freedom. Take Torah, keep Torah, use Torah, wield Torah, live Torah, be Torah. Give Torah as Moses, spread Torah as Jesus.
Is it World War 3, or is this too a sham, simply disinformation to make you scamper, away from God, away from Torah? As we say every week, LAW is what makes the man not a savage, the community safe, the nation strong. Not faith, not hope, not charity, though these things be very important. For without LAW we are lawless, even if without charity we are hard-hearted, or without faith we are flighty, or without hope we are lifeless. Only with LAW can we define our lives by the standard of Almighty God, and everything else is measured by ego, peers, and groups.
We invite you today to discuss world affairs in light of Torah. What’s wrong with the world, and what is the cure? We know what’s wrong – The Five Evils: corruption, communism, savagery, crime, and hedonism. We know the solution – Torah, which demands equal law, private property, proper jurisprudence, protection of life and liberty, and a sound moral and natural society based on Torah hegemony. Come listen!
(Sing the following to the tune of John Lennon’s “Happy Xmas”):
And so this is Passover,
Did you throw out the yeast?
Are you fighting corruption?
Or a friend of the Beast?

A merry Gut Yontiff,

and let’s not be found grumbling,
when Messiah calls!
And so Chag Sameach,
your Seder be grand,
but much more important,
your sons understand,
and yes, too, your daughters,
to not just clean your pots,
but the tree of free is watered
by the blood of patriots!...
if you.. love God,
SO out of control! The lawlessness we years ago predicted would come is upon us swiftly and densely. Though we are not yet at a saturation point, the world is knee-deep in corruption, communism, sharia savagery, criminal activity, and hedonism.

In today’s lesson, we understand that when all is lost for humanity, there is still God, who will remember His covenant, and save those who do not give up on Him, that is, who do not give up on Torah. As the world deepens its shame, we who believe must deepen our commitment to Torah.
As the Passover approaches, we clean our homes of chametz as a symbol of removing sin from our lives. But more importantly, we do it because we are COMMANDED BY GOD to do it.
This Passover, a blood red moon will fill the sky. Some say this is prophecy fulfilling itself. It would be easy to say that God is warning us, telling us, that He’s coming, and to prepare for the end. If this is true, Torah is the way to prepare. But if it is not true that the end is near, Torah is still the way to prepare your life for tomorrow, for eternity, or for any surprise God may have in store.
Here at the
In the Bible, we see that the Jewish people were given judges but they wanted a king, so God said, “Oh, I’ll give you a king alright.” But that line of succession didn’t always work out well, and in fact not well at all. Today, we have a Constitution, rights from God, and a law, Torah, by which to judge. But we abdicate our judgment, and leave it to men who we, deep down, believe are better than we because (1) they run for office while we make excuses, (2) they make decision while simply follow the rules of society, the office, peer pressure, etc. Though they are tyrants, we obey, or fail to obey, based simply on self-contempt, accruing guilt which, over time, they can manipulate.
In today’s lesson, we learn that if
we will follow Torah, these kings will bow to WE THE P
To those who say “Good! Let it fall,” I say, The Lord will punish you too, perhaps more for your selfish actions which you believe will benefit your doctrine, especially that of bringing about end-times. This applies to Jews, Christians, Muslims, Buddhists, even atheists, who all believe in a better world through collapse. Perhaps the world WILL be better off through collapse, but it must not come at our behest. Our inheritance is this world and it is our DUTY to PROTECT it. I am not speaking of environmentalism or destroying corporations but of DEMANDING TORAH. Then there will be true justice and true equality of law.
In which we learn that God shall rule the Universe forevermore, Amen.
The statists will stake their claim. The savages will try to run the table. The anarchists will attempt to carve out a corner for themselves. And for a short time they will succeed. But the YOUTH.. the YOUTH.. will know that it is THEY who are being shafted. When the spying into their private lives is incessant, every time they text or look at Facebook or take a call. They will know that it is CORRUPT GOVERNMENT which is always at fault, not individuals, not parents, not systems, not corporations, not religion, not politics.. but simply when EVIL people are permitted to run things. And how can we TELL who is evil and who is not? Through Law. Not through belief, or opinion, or clairvoyance, or intuition. All these are subjective and cannot be applied universally, except by force of personality. But a LAW.. preexisting, ancient, valid, utilized, recognizable, said to be from God, translatable in its language, with a current following and religion of high order. This of course is Torah. When this Law, this Torah, is applied, the evil will be squashed. How? When men and women are told that whatever they accuse, the punishment shall fall upon them if they are bearing false witness, then the fraud, the corruption, the perjury, WILL end. And when the fraud stops, the truth will be told. And when the Truth is told, it had best be a good Truth, else there shall be a comeuppance.
In this current context, I foresee a youthful uprising and revolution worldwide. Why? To save that which they hold most precious, the connection and communication with their FRIENDS. And why is this different? Occupy Wall Street was a sham. It was a “gimme” revolution, and those don’t last, and are instantly infiltrated by communists. But the war against spying is NOT a gimme revolution, but a LEAVE ME ALONE revolution. When a Leave Me Alone Revolution is afoot, it cannot be stopped or compromised. And with spying, the communists will NOT interject because they WANT spying. Once and for all, we will KNOW.. FOREVERMORE.. that it is the Left which is obsessed with snooping, watching, censoring, controlling, limiting, piece-mealing.
This has the potential to exceed the
anti-war movement of the 1960’s. This
has the potential to overthrow every 1960’s radical now in power, from Obama to Hollande to Abbas to Putin, all products or
vestiges of that past.
Today’s lesson from Isaiah tells us
that God shall be there when the people demand LAW. God gave the Jews judges, but they wanted a
THEIR CONTEMPT FOR US
Looking at an old Terminator 2 Screen Saver CD-ROM, which carried the face of Arnold Schwartzenegger as the Terminator, it occurred to me that we put much stock into our heroes, but our heroes keep letting us down.
And yes, there IS an "us" and a "them." WE are the people who believe in ourselves, the little people, those who struggle. THEY are those who believe in the superiority of their superior intellect and who look down upon our struggles, even our victories.
While We revere those who fought to free the little people from King George, They find the time and energy to point out their weaknesses, inadequacies, hypocrisies. We can't simply like George Washington for what he did, we also have to endure countless attacks on his character, his private life, his properties. The same goes for Abraham Lincoln and Thomas Jefferson. But it goes deeper.
Their contempt for our hero-worship must extend down to our religion. Those who love Jesus Christ must be ridiculed incessantly. In the "old days," it would be the contemptuous who would suffer more dire consequences, so now I suppose they think they are getting some revenge for the tortures to their "ancestors" (whether or not related to them)! But even in their struggle against God, they lie to themselves, because they make themselves out to be the little people, that is, Us, and therefore leverage our innate sympathy for the little guy against us. It is a clever tool.
This twist-around did not actually make an indentation into society until the 1960's, when the media all of a sudden took the side of those who wanted chaos for the average American. It was seen as a victory for the little guy, that America the powerful should suffer for its violence against the black man, first and foremost, but then also any other victim which could be dredged up, real or imaginary. Some of this twist-around was likely a backlash to the anticommunism of the 1950's, a "never again" attitude that was manipulated BY communists, using the idealism of youth, who naturally root for the little guy.
By the time the 70's came around, this had worn thin. These commies went underground. The 1980's, however, brought them into the political arena, where they have survived and thrived ever since. They learned that in order to HELP the little guy, they had to CRUSH the little guy! And thereby they understood that not all little guys were equal. In fact, to them, "social justice" became a joke. It was not about following the law for all peoples. It was about USING the law AGAINST those thought to be oppressors. And thereby the warning of Frederic Bastiat (1850) came true.
Socialism, that is, using the law to
take anything from one class to give to another, became a commonplace desire
and reality in
Now the concept is fully
impregnated. It IS
In Congress we hear a cacophony of wailing from white guys who are LOVED by victims. People like Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer, Chris van Hollen. Those who claim to be "down wid it" but we know are either communists in drag or else scared out of their wits for their own safety, which to us little people is more acceptable, even when WE are getting hosed!
But even when we offer such sympathies to those who hate us, we receive nothing but their contempt. Why? You see, they believe they are of a higher order being than you. They even believe they are of a higher order being than those they are helping. They don't REALLY believe that black people and white people are equals! Some believe whites are superior, some believe blacks are superior. But in the hallowed halls of Them, there cannot BE equality of race when every day They make the distinction between who is being oppressed and who is not!
Don't get me wrong. Distinctions are necessary for survival and community. Sameness is a good thing. The little people understand that those who think alike are more apt to protect their mutual interests, whether that be religion, politics, property or country.
But what I JUST wrote They condemn, even as they preach and practice it! How do they get away with it?
I'll tell you the secret.
In reality, YOU believe what They believe. You believe they ARE of a higher order than you. That’s why they’re leaders. You don’t REALLY believe your own ideas are worthwhile, or else YOU would be a leader.
Yet you malign these higher-order beings because you gave them hero-worship and they let you down. Don't reject the truth. It will be your undoing. You see, YOU have as much contempt for yourself, being a little guy, as they do for you.
Oh, you may have a more comforting aspect to it, that in your inadequacy you ought to be able to proliferate and be free, but in the end you know that you are a little guy. You find community with other little guys. You make a big noise in religion and politics. Sometimes you even make some money, or maybe marry a really good-looking or worthy human being. But for the most part, you have contempt for yourself in the arena of building communities.
Guess what? They KNOW you have contempt for yourself, and they COUNT on you to go against your own interests. The proof? These same high-minded cretins, They, are voted in over and over again. And it is not because of the handouts they offer to the poor. It is because, in your contempt, you do not vote, or you do not put in the adequate energy to get others to vote.
And do you know why you don't have that energy? Because deep down you think your ideas are not worthy. You BELIEVE that you ARE the oppressor. You see the black man struggling, and the homosexual crying the blues, and the woman kvetching, and you say to yourself, "Maybe I AM oppressing. Maybe I SHOULD be kinder, more Christian." And then they have you.
Let me be clear. No matter WHAT you do, short of killing yourself and giving all your property to Them, you will never win them over. All your kindnesses will be seen as weakness, and the media and other cronies will blast you as a panderer who is only seeking to soothe his own soul, or get votes, or get sympathy, or save his own skin. You feel it?
The answer? Don't do that! Your sympathies are rooted in wrong doctrines. If you knew the Law of God, you would reject Their covetous talk and thoughts, their theft through "taxation" and other means, their murder in unnecessary wars, their false witness in describing you as an oppressor and/or killer, their atheism, their polytheism, their deviance, their fires of Moloch, even their habits of food and drink!
The Law of God rejects anything not of itself. It does not care if you are a sympathizer with evil or just evil - it condemns you the same. It does not care if you are contemptuous of yourself or not - it demands obedience regardless. It does not command any faith other than to obey because God told you so. It does not demand any pound of flesh other than that written in it.
Some may say this Law of God is violent. Good! There is a counterbalance to sin, and it is to get rid of sin. It is NOT to tolerate it. When you tolerate sin, They have contempt for you. When you do not tolerate sin, They fear you.
Now, a warning. The Christian religion is not the
administrator of God's Law. Not only is
that IN God's Law, and IN the New Testament, it is also proven by mismanaged
history. Islam is not the administrator
of God's Law, and they KNOW it, which is why they struggle so mightily against
In fact, the reason why everyone seems to revile the Jews is due to the knowledge that the Law of God is superior, and that the Jews are its chosen administrators.
But not only is it a matter of authority but also a matter of empowerment. Because the Law of God makes the little guy prosper, They hate it! Communism HATES Judaism (see Marx, "On the Jewish Question"). Christianity, which desires its liberty from Law, has CONTEMPT for Judaism. And Islam struggles for hegemony with Sharia, which is but a distortion of Torah!
So there you have it. The major players in this world each have played Torah against the little guy, when it is Torah which is the SALVATION of the little guy, from making a Sabbath against 7-day work-weeks to offering a society of peace and prosperity. The only question is: Do you have such self-loathing that you cannot accept the free gift of Torah?
Are we doomed? Only God can save us now. When I say “us,” who do I mean?
Certainly, it is Islam which is on the move and on the rise, and where Islam is in the news there is only violence and death. While Christianity may breathe some sigh of relief that Islam will take the public relations brunt, that is cold comfort for the coming world struggle, which has not yet even BEGUN! But if we look only at the violence of Islam, religion in general will suffer a setback, the smug smirking “See? Religion ALWAYS leads to violence.” Perhaps those people will, however, be subsumed. Perhaps not.
For Communism is also on the
rise. We spoke of this
six years ago when all was “well.” We
warned that the wars in the
We wrote many years ago that The Mark of the Beast would embody itself as a willingness to become enslaved or perverted. We see now a Great Capitulation. This Great Capitulation is away from and against Torah. It is not against Christianity, for Christianity is entreated to accept “social justice” (Communism) and “coexistence” (agnosticism/new age) and even “sharia” (Islamic Law over Constitutional Law and Torah). No, Christianity is only a belief system of doctrine, tailoring God’s Law to its own desires through a series of special offers and apologetics. Christian “law” is so flimsy that it offers no threat to the Beast. Only when Torah is injected, as the fight against homosexuality, is Christianity lambasted. Otherwise, it is treated as a religion for the retarded.
But don’t get me wrong. Jesus Christ IS Torah. He IS the Law. Jews who revere Torah ought to understand
that once and for all. Jesus IS
Judaism. Christians also must get this
in order to “win.” But
“winning” means becoming Torah.
As long as Torah remains rejected by Christians, there will be world
struggle. The Christian claim that
Christianity has created the greatest empires is false. Christianity did not build
The answer to this world struggle is
Hegemony. And the Hegemony, the
dominance, which MUST be applied MUST be Law, and not
Faith or Belief. Faith is
invisible. Belief is personal. But LAW is visible and ancient, interpreted
and valued, disciplined and right. And
if it is LAW we require, it is NOT the violence of Sharia,
the diluted cruelty of ancient Christianity, or the man-made encryptions of
Statism, Communism, and other known evils.
We ought not bow to the Law of the Jungle, or
the Law of Criminals, or the Law or Pleasure.
We ought not give in to “social justice” or
cries for “rights” or cries against “discrimination.” Rather, we ought to invoke OUR Judaic
background, the Judeo-Christian principles which built
Otherwise, you WILL submit to Sharia or Socialist/Communist dictatorship.
There is only one God. There is only one Law of God. There is thus only one correct path. Only Law can save us now. Law and order. Bastiat knew it. Jefferson and Washington knew it. Jesus knew it. It is not about tolerance, acceptance, coexistence or non-judgment. It is about differentiating between right and wrong, using the most balanced, still-extant-yet-ancient, translatable, ubiquitous law there is. It is Torah. The Law of God WILL be victorious, whether it is in YOUR hands or in the hands of Islam. It’s your choice. The communists can NEVER win because they deny human nature. The Muslims apply themselves to discipline but with too much savagery. There is still a little time. Christians and Jews, accept Torah, follow it, and God will bless you once again.
Tune in for motivation to fear God and do His commandments!
We march towards madness. One communist, the Black Russian, stands idly by for the other communist, the White Wolf, and we think there is a cold war, or a hot war. There is NO war. It will be over without a whimper. The world will plunge into darkness, the savages will howl through the streets, and all we’ve known will be wiped out within years. All it will take is one more catastrophe and the power will ebb from the people once more. And why? Because we have given up on Torah. The Jewish people are not gravitating to Torah but towards hedonism. The Christians now tolerate hedonism and communism. The Muslims do not evolve but entrench even further. The Chinese build. That is about ¾ of the world’s population, not counting unbelievers, who think their elitist stance is somehow enlightened or advanced, when Torah itself speaks to them. It is ancient. It is all evil.
Today, listen in and hear the solution - if we will implement – Torah!
We are dumb and easily led. We are like sheep, thinking not for tomorrow, or even the next moment. We think only of our bellies and our anxieties. But OK! Solomon, in Ecclesiastes, says that the best a man can do is eat, drink, and enjoy the good of his labor, of his hands. Nevertheless, Solomon also writes that the entire DUTY of man is to fear God and do His commandments. So it’s not enough to just be a hedonist, thoughtless and carefree. There is duty and obedience also. Now, when there is duty and obedience, there are limits to Hedonism.
In today’s lesson, we learn that God’s chosen people were no better at learning these lessons. This doesn’t disqualify His chosen people, or qualify another to take over. It merely means that the Bible has shown, and continues to show, that human nature has not changed, though empires crumble under the weight of said nature!
We talk quite a lot about Hedonism. We speak to the fall of empires as a consequence of Hedonism. One aspect of Hedonism is that men and women eat and drink as they like. “What?”, you say, “the fall of empires is due to eating and drinking?” If we believe that God’s commandments are true, and from God, then indeed eating forbidden foods, such as pork and shrimp, is the same as eating the forbidden fruit in the Garden of Eden. “No, no!,” you reply, “it wasn’t fruit which was the issue, it was the disobedience to… oh… right.” In so saying, any Gentile or Christian authority to permit eating forbidden foods is corrosive to the empire.
Another aspect to Hedonism is
proliferation of sexual attitudes and disintegration of mores. This includes not only the obvious deviances,
such as incest or bestiality, but also the more accepted deviances, such as the
male homosexual act. It is NOT a sign of
progressivism that a society is more embracing of male homosexuality. In fact, it is regressive, because… if the
Law addresses it, and it does, it predates the Law. This means the LAW is progressive against the
more ancient and pagan acts of male homosexuality. That
But let us also note adultery as another Hedonism which instigates the fall of empires. First, the adultery of sex with another man’s wife, which causes neighbor to suspect and hate neighbor. The empire cannot sustain if its inhabitants hate each other more than they do foreign invaders. Besides this practical consideration are many spiritual ones:
(1) the mere act of lusting after your neighbor’s wife is coveting, another deep sin, and one which causes indiscretions which break up otherwise solid marriages and families, divorces and childhood traumas which corrode society to the core,
(2) sex with women who have not divorced for the cause of adultery is adultery, and is like a virus spreading; the fact that such things go on all the time does not make it right or without consequence,
(3) when certain groups of people engage promiscuously, they have sex with women who, by their previous sexual engagement, caused themselves to be scripturally married already; the fact they these women don’t recognize such marriages or laws does not negate God, or the effect on society;
(4) the number of fatherless children from such promiscuity rises exponentially, causing a breakdown on the streets and in homes, with an increase in gangs for support, with commensurate increase in violence in and out of the home; in fact, an entire culture of violence; and if this violence is blamed upon society rather than on the perpetrators, as if the victims deserve what they get, society is about to explode, either to implode or to crush such elements;
(5) due to these cultural elements, and prevailing belief on the sanctity of life, promiscuity also leads to abortions, some 50 million in America alone within the previous 40 years, and this not only is murder (premeditated killing of life), it also is weakness of resolve, for abortion is the inability of the mother to care for its child, and this is not strength.
These are but a few of the corrosions of Hedonism which destroy empires. Tune in to our program for more.

Why do the heathen rage? Why do the people imagine vain things? First, it’s in their nature. Second, the heathen is not beaten back, and the vain things are not judged by Torah. If Christians will not come to Torah, then destruction will come to Christianity. It’s not enough to say, “Christianity’s been just fine.” It hasn’t. The Jews have carried the day for the Gentile, in always reestablishing the Law. The Gentiles are prolific, no doubt about it, but only when they espouse the portions of Torah which matter, such as regarding money, property, family, and God. We now live in a unique age. Every evil is upon us, and it seems there is no good choice or escape. But Torah, that one great Law everyone talks about, that Law which is neither too rigid nor too flexible, is still untried in its entirety among the nations. Listen today to a geopolitical take on Isaiah, and see if you don’t agree!
The idolatry continues. Oh, not the trite criticisms do I give you regarding money, cars, or status. These are not idolatry. No, instead I speak to you of statism and the “dear leader” who is the head of such statism which makes rules seeking to circumvent and supersede God. For when men make laws which go against Torah, they makes themselves God. Who has the right to make a law contrary to Torah. Why, not even God! The anti-Torah crowd, and they are many, may say that Torah itself is contradictory, but this is not true. Their moaning that one word is not the same as the other does not remove that no commandment blocks the way to obedience in another commandment. And this is the real issue. For while men strain to show that Torah is not perfect by the sight of their eyes, the hearing of their ears, the research of their minds, it is only so that they do not have to follow Torah, not so they can! They have no such goal or aim. Their purpose is not to make Torah clearer but cloudier. Their purpose is not to teach to do but to teach refraining from doing, to teach to disobey.
And why? Simply, there is something in Torah which stops their desires from coming to full fruition. Perhaps it is the commandments which say to refrain from male homosexuality, and the capital punishment for the conviction of such. Perhaps it is the commandment of Sabbath, which tells the State that on one particular day, the same day, every week, I shall not be working. The head of state is then put in the position to either reject Torah and force the Torah follower to work on Sabbath, or to relent to Torah, even if the reasoning is that to press forward against Torah might end in revolution. In either case, it is capitulation to Torah, as it should be.
Perhaps it is the Christian who desires to eat unclean meats of all sorts, and utilizes the death of Jesus Christ as the occasion to dilute Torah so that such eating takes place. Never mind that Christ’s death, according to Christian doctrine, has nothing to do with destroying Torah, but rather is supposed to be a propitiation for blood sacrifice. Where did Jesus say He came to destroy the Law, or any jot or tittle? Did He not say that anyone who broke and taught against the least commandment would be called least? If this is true, why teach to eat unclean meats?
Some might say that Islam is the correct path, but Islam IS Torah, at least according to their own writings, only with improper administrators, chosen not by Torah, that is, not by God, but by men who unlawfully gave themselves permission to administer Torah, under the false pretense that the Jews lost that right and/or privilege. Who gave these Muslims the right to administer Torah? Who told them that the Jews had lost their administration over Torah? Mohammed? Who is Mohammed but another harbinger of outside influence against Torah? As Paul before him, Mohamed made his exceptions, his own rules, and was therefore a statist. That the Sanhedrin of Christ’s time were statists does not justify changing Torah, but only justifies changing out certain ones from the Sanhedrin.
But if one says that Torah is subservient to the “law” of “common sense” or “universal principles,” it again devolves that someone must quantify what these laws are. Commonly, they are dilutions of Torah, involving the Ten Commandments, derivations of charity commandments, and a love of nature which is already in full bloom in, yet properly limited by, Torah. And whenever these more nebulous “laws” are scribed, there is seemingly always a component of pagan nature-worship included, whether it is the worship of trees, the sun, the Earth, animals, or even one particular bright and charming man, that is, the statist.
These words I write today give
meaning to the question, “Why Torah?” and not another way? Torah came before Christianity and
Islam. Torah dissolves the old ways of
polytheism. Torah is the evolution of
religion. Torah is for the many, not the
few. Torah is simple to implement yet
takes a lifetime to fully understand.
Torah makes enemies, which means it has guts and character. Torah comments fully and decisively on the
Five Evils: hedonism, crime, communism, corruption, and Islamism, and makes
them subservient. When Torah is
God wants our obedience, not our sin, not our sacrifice for sin. Focus on the sacrifice means we have little respect for the obedience. Therefore God’s Law, Torah, is once again thrust down. However, as history shows, Torah shall never be fully or permanently defeated or killed, only temporarily misplaced, waiting for the statist to make his next fatal flaw against humanity, when thereafter Torah shall straighten it all out again.
Who is to blame for the mess we’re in? The Christians, undoubtedly. Having venerated themselves as the “new chosen” with the authority to abrogate and abridge the Law to a certain standard of paganism that suited both their taste to be rid of paganism, that is, to be Jewish, and their taste to remain pagan, that is, to be themselves, early Gentile Christianity made a choice to be more sinful than is permitted, by the permission to ingest unclean foods without purpose of survival, to create for themselves doctrines which did not conform with God’s Law, and to generally deify the Jew whose sole purpose and mission was to goad and push the corrupt Sanhedrin back to proper confines, that is, in Torah. In order to enshrine this decision with some degree of godly approval, the Christians went about persecuting and destroying the very people who were persecuted and destroyed for the benefit of these same Gentile Christians, that is, the Jews. After several hundred years, the Jewish Christians, the original church, was about wiped out, or at least spread to such a degree that it made not a mark against widespread Gentile Christianity. Having disposed of their greatest enemy, the Law of God (or so they thought), these Christians set about themselves to decide which school of Trinitarian thought was least pagan, and therefore began a battle between the followers of Arius and Aristarchus which would rage for decades, bloody battles fought over whether the Trinity were three faces of God or three aspects, or whichever degree of paganism suited them best. It should be noted that the main motivation for retaining this paganism was twofold, first, that the security of salvation from the effects of sin was somehow wrapped up in the notion that God died on the cross, an impossibility of course, for God cannot die, and naturally it is best explained that “God” died on the cross in that Jesus, the prophet of Torah, the greatest Jewish evangelist, was killed for standing up to endemic institutional corruption among His own people, but it was not in the strength of pagans to understand any of these things, Jewish things, and thus the King of the Jews was re-crowned as the Savior of the Word, bringing with Him a salvation peculiarly dispensed only by a belief in the magic and mystical power of His blood, which of course is a return to the paganism that even the Council at Jerusalem (Acts 15:20-21) dedicates as the first hurdle which all Gentiles must vault in order to even be considered a follower of Jesus and a member-in-good-standing of the new sect of Judaism known as Christianity; and second, this paganism was culturally foundational to the main body of Gentiles brought into the church at that time (indeed, to this day), Greeks and Romans with mythological religious roots, Arabs of various polytheism, and sailors from far lands who came to Israel and Jerusalem. But in establishing any Christianity with paganism, every particle pagan naturally takes away from the purity of Torah, that which Jesus taught, that under which Jesus was perfect and flawless, but not so He could be a blood sacrifice for heathens, in order that they might continue in their willful paganism, or even unintentional sin, for we know that Jesus even viewed the expansion of Torah gospel to the Samaritans to be as pearls before swine, good meat to dogs, but rather the perfection of Christ was, first, an example to His own people, the lost sheep of His people, alienated by corruption and hypocrisy in the Jewish leaders of His day, to bring them back to Torah, and even to Temple, and second, a light to whoever else desired to take on this burden of the full Law. I say “burden” because it is clear that Christianity and Judaism do not share the same view of Torah, or law in general. It is a generally-known fact that people leave Christianity, or perhaps more accurately, leave the church because of hypocrisy and hypocrites, those who say what is right but do not endeavor very much to do what is right, an obvious flaw in Christian doctrine, being “not under the law,” giving antinomianism, that is, the attitude that salvation gives one the right to sin without effect, such as condemnation, sway to run wild. For when law is undermined by doctrine of dilution, as in, quite colloquially, “Jesus died for my sins, and therefore I can eat pork without any fear,” the desires of carnality are given allowance to exist in a justified state, and there is no power of persuasion which will convince such a believer that to refrain from pork (for example) provides any positive benefit, but rather, and quite extraordinarily, it is considered that to refrain from pork is a step backwards, as if obedience to the Law of God is the more pagan action than the disobedience! As if the confidence given, quite without right or justification, to break any least commandment is the “right stuff” that promotes a higher plane of spirituality, circumventing, yea, ascending over commandments of God which are eternal and unbreakable, but which are quite breakable in the minds of Gentile Christians taught by leaders of incorrect doctrines that to break the commandment is a sign of spiritual maturity! Is it any wonder then that many who analyze Christianity see a religion of absurdity, where the commandment of blood atonement through animal sacrifice is termed “of no effect” and yet there is named a propitiation, a substitute, for those commandments “of no effect” which stands in for that which has no efficacy in the first place! For if the blood of bulls and goats never could atone for sin, howbeit that the blood of Christ works where the blood of animals, blood commanded by God to be shed for sins, has no such workability? This is but one aspect of absurdity in Christianity which is also hypocrisy, for if belief in animal blood atonement is to the Christian a fantasy, or even some passé ritual, why is the substitution of Jesus, whether He is a man or God Himself, of any more value and usefulness? One can make grandiose remarks, such as, “The blood of God is always valuable and useful!” but the instant and effective retort, “How does God have blood?” is so strong that it must, and does, cause the Christian to retreat behind a wall of violent possessiveness, and indeed, that has been the Christian answer up until perhaps the 1800’s. That Christianity has matured as an attitude, and violence among Christians towards anyone is frowned upon, it does not remove that Christians still ferociously guard this mystical religious dogma with every fiber of their being, as if the mere belief in the doctrine itself is what promotes salvation, when it is actually clear that the entire gospel of Christ was “Repent!” The one difference between Christianity and Judaism, if we can say there is only one, is that Christianity promotes a type of hypocrisy that demands obedience while also not only disallowing various commandments of God but also persuades its followers to cultivate an arrogant notion of their own superior spirituality based on not following Law, while Judaism alienates its followers because there are too many laws and rules! Is it bad or wrong that there are too many laws and rules? No, that’s the religion! There is no hypocrisy in demanding congregants to follow the Law of God, and this is made stronger by the fact that Judaism is rooted in the genetic aspect of being born Jewish, a “burden” from birth that commands Jews to not only keep the Law for the good of themselves, and for their families, and for the communities, both social and genetic, but also to be a light to the Gentiles, to those who are not born with the responsibility. It ought to be obvious that when a group born to a duty to see God’s commandments carried out in full meets with a group which contends that those same commandments have been abridged in some fashion, there’s going to be conflict, even blood spilled. From the beginning, Gentile Christianity has made its mark by destroying everyone in its path who does not agree that the Law of God is abridged by the blood of Christ, even though Christ Himself said He did not come to destroy a jot or a tittle of the Law or the Prophets! Quite astounding! Quite hypocritical that those who are Christians ignore Christ in order to keep a doctrine which benefits them solely to satisfy their carnal desires, for how can it be that Christ died so that you can eat pork, or shrimp, or wear certain clothes, or groom a certain way, or plant a certain way. Really? Jesus came, and as a Jew, to set free everyone from those parts of the Law which separate Jews from Gentiles? You mean to say that the purpose of Christ was to make Jews more Gentile, not the other way around? Christian apologists may say “No, more Jewish than Gentile” but there is, as always, a stopping point to the Law where even the apologist will not tread, that is, telling the Gentile to simply follow the Law as the most Torah Jews of the day follow the Law. Can we imagine a world where Christians follow the Law as if they were Hassidic Jews? This would put secular Jews to shame. But as long as Christians insist that their salvation, their pride, their holiness, their spirituality, includes “getting away with things” because Jesus died on the cross, not only will Christianity wither further, but they are particularly culpable for the destruction of Torah, more so than the Jews, for in their numbers and power the Christians have made themselves the most holy of people, favored by God, exempt from Gehenna, and yet how is that possible if their claim to fame is to accept the sacrifice of a man who was flawless in the Law while they themselves are exempt for a good portion of that same Law? This is the guilt of Christianity, that it promotes sin through its own doctrine, yet fights violently to shed that image and label, but does not change its doctrine to match how violently it fights! More next week.
Is it the end?
So we come to the conclusion that Christianity is weak and getting weaker, while the Muslims are getting stronger. We understand that both Christians and Muslims have tried to steal the mantle of “chosen” and have not succeeded. Instead, they’ve warred for 1500 years or so. Meanwhile, Torah awaits all who desire not too cold (Christianity) and not too hot (Islam). But what about Buddhism? The virtue of humanity is limited and does not stretch to righteousness, for righteousness is entirely the purview of God. Thus, all who reject God can do more than be “good people,” measured only by the standards of men who dilute and hack at Torah. But if one says Islam is superior, in what manner? Islam also boasts only an imitation of Torah. Come hear a few complex ideas mixed with a bit of fun.

Torah is not a curse. The Law is not a curse. The “curse of the Law” is the punishment we gather for our own misdeeds. The Law of God is not a curse from which to escape. The Christian who says he is “not under the law” has no understanding of the meaning of that phrase. If one is “not under the law,” it is not that one is safe from the Law of God, it is that one is not sinning at the moment. If the reasoning is that Christ puts one “not under the law,” it is that Christ points a person to follow the Law. Is that what Christ said? Was that His mission? Yes! He came to fulfill, as an example, not destroy. Whoever teaches to break the least commandment, He said, is least. There are may ways to prove that Christ is not a remover of Torah, the above examples being only two.
The Christian believes he is an heir to the promise of God. But this is only true if the Christian picks up the mantle of the Jew, to follow Torah. That the Christian has overthrown following Torah for a doctrine of absolution is the undoing of the world, as much as it is when the Jew forgoes Torah for assimilation into Gentile culture. The Christian wants a waiver from the Law of God like a union boss wants a waiver from Obamacare. The Christian wants a bailout from the sins which stem from poor custodial and stewardship like the banks want a bailout from their sins in creating worthless derivatives from worthless mortgages. In fact, if the bank had followed the law, no bailout would have been necessary. If the union boss had stood for his membership in the first place, no waiver would have been necessary. So the Christian looking for this bailout and waiver is an acknowledgement of sin against the Law of God, seeking from the author of the Law an unfair advantage and pardon, which the Law itself forbids!
When the people are vigilant for the law, they are a moral people. This is true for Constitutional issues and spiritual issues. Only a moral people deserve a Constitution, and a deserving people embrace the Law of God fully, and demand its implementation within construct and spec of both word and spirit, judiciously utilizing it to also secure the cultural hegemony.
Islam was born when Arabs saw that
non-Jews took Torah and twisted it for their own means. Mohammed approached the Jews, to fight
against the paganism inherent in Christian custom and doctrine. The Jews instead offered Mohammed a place in
Judaism, saying, “We already have a monotheistic religion with a firm
law!” Mohammed was insulted and
enraged. However, as far from it being
the Jews’ fault that Mohammed came to them, that is how close it is that

It will do you no good to say, “But the Talmud ruined Torah.” So? Follow Torah without Talmud, if that is your reasoning. But you did not, Christian, because you needed your bailout and waiver, without the hard work associated with keeping the Law for yourself, your family, and your society. Instead, you made rules of behavior which mimicked to some degree Torah, which made you feel as if you were fulfilling some part of a bargain never made.

TODAY’S MESSAGE regards the ACA-Obamacare, and idolatry. What is the connection? Listen for an hour and find out!
TODAY’S MESSAGE is a message to and for atheists. Do you notice the idolater makes a “god” out of something visible, thereby proving that man is the creator? Is it not obvious that the container of an idol is the container of what is invisible? For if a man worships something made of wood, why does he burn wood for heat? Or if a man worships something made of stone, why does he use stone to build a structure? No, it is not the container, the idol, which is holy, but only the invisible God. For what is invisible except that which keeps what is visible constant? The invisible God has made our lives easy by commanding us to refrain from idolatry. We do not have to, in fact must not, fashion any visible thing to symbolize the invisible. Like a radio which contains waves, but is not the wave itself, the idol is but a container. What is a dream? Can we know it by examining the brain? What is “cold”? Can we know it by building a refrigerator? No, we may only know the effects. The invisible God is strength. But if the atheist believes that faith in invisible things is foolish or worse, why does the atheist have faith in an invisible “nothing” after death? Or, rather, why does the militant atheist find it necessary to destroy religion in order to live in peace? The answer is that faith in an invisible God reminds the atheist that a belief in “nothingness” is akin to a belief in invisibility. However, the believer in an invisible God is not threatened by an atheist’s beliefs, only the destructive nature of a militant jihad atheism against religion. Atheists may claim a fear of religion for many reasons, but experience now proves that atheists are a menace to religious beliefs in schools, on public grounds, even on private property, in conversations, and so forth. If religion is so fearful, why does the militant atheist take the attitude of that which he despises? Again, the invisible God is the reminder of the invisible. God’s Law is invisible. But the container of God’s Law, Torah, is visible. How detrimental to the atheist who desires not to see any evidence of an invisible God! The atheist can always claim that men wrote Torah, but by the same token men make opinions of atheism. The question is only, which man to believe. In this regard, who shall the atheists bring forth? Dawkins? Kierkegaard? What proof do atheist scientists bring to their vaunted table? What experience do atheist writers extend? None! Only their biases against commandments which restrain them, religions which irritate them, elitism which elevates them disproportionately! There is therefore very little for the atheist to say besides, “I don’t like it!” Their claims that religion is the greatest killer of men is false. Atheistic communism has been the greatest killer. Not only Mao, Stalin, Castro, Pol Pot, and the rest. But also the national socialists like Hitler, Genghis Khan, and the tribal socialists like Idi Amin and Mugabe. But further, it is Baal who is the maker of sameness in the name of rejecting the invisible God. One need only read the Bible to see how idolaters destroy. Listen to this week’s message for more.

TODAY’S MESSAGE is simple. Thank God for all things. Thank God for creation, for origin, for the scientific mechanisms of the universe, for astrophysics, for quantum physics, for genetics, for mathematics, for biology. Thank God for all anatomy, for ears, for eyes, for all senses, for extrasensory, for variety, for adaptation. Oh, thank God! Thank God for these and so many more things which work like clockwork perfection, so that we do not say, “How will we know the sun will rise tomorrow?” or “How will these molecules remain together?” At this time of High Holidays, we thank God for the opportunity to renew the universe, to be one with Torah, be commune with people of like mind, to cleanse ourselves, to start anew, to BE!
Spiraling out of control faster than one of Stephen Hawking’s wheelchairs, the world is heading towards a showdown. Oh, and I don’t JUST mean Syria, Egypt, Iran, Russia, China, Mexico, Brazil, Venezuela, Germany, Gibraltar, Indonesia, Sudan, Congo, Libya, and the United States.
The world is careening madly in a final battle between good and evil. You can choose the side of Evil power - the corruption in a New World Order, the savagery of Islamism, the death of individualism under Communism, the endless violence of Crime, or the dead end of Hedonism. Or, you can choose the way of Torah.
The way of Moses, the way of Elijah, the way of Isaiah, the way of Jesus.
It is not the way of the hippie, with peace and love. As Jesus said, “I did not come to bring peace but a sword.” Listen today to hear what that means. As Jesus said, and I paraphrase, the greatest love is to lay down one’s life for those who do God’s commandments.
Come listen and learn before it’s too late!
Who is God? Who are you?
Do you REALLY understand what a Savior is? Do you REALLY understand what it means to be a “chosen people”? Do you understand baptism? Do you understand what it is to be “ransomed”?
This week, hear what TORAH and ISAIAH have to say about these things. Don’t guess! Don’t be ignorant! There’s no need!
Five Evils got you down? Is there enough corruption for you yet? Ready to fight back? If the answer is “No” you are not alone. There are so many major and minor wars and skirmishes, both military and spiritual, to fight, it gets tiring. People give up. After awhile, it becomes a blur. Once you saw, now you are blind. Once you listened, now you are deaf. Then, after a time, you don’t even understand the argument anymore, not even the language of the argument. You are in a burning building, smoke is in your eyes, your flesh is on fire, and you don’t even notice. The GOOD NEWS is that there is HOPE. First, there is repentance for sins. Second, there is Torah for guidance into goodness. Third, there is an elect of God’s people who He will save for His own name, His own promise. Who are these people, and how does one recognize? TODAY is the day to find out! As always, we must fight against Corruption, Crime, Hedonism, Communism (collectivism), and Islamism. Be renewed!
The strength of the Lord is mightier than all. Torah is His word. How much more do we need to hear?
Torah will save the world. Torah drives back Sharia law by providing the proper context and foundation against barbarism. Torah destroys communism by establishing capitalism, family, and religion (both God and rite) as necessary. Torah commands crime to be punished and stopped. Torah demands an end to corruption, making any “one world order” to be fair, just, balanced, sustainable, and thriving. Torah forces hedonism (including homosexuality, abortion, and fatherless children) back to the seedy alley from which it springs. If you think Torah is a fantasy, I will show you the Law of God. If you think Torah is a Jewish conspiracy, I will show you Jesus Christ. If you think Torah is a laugh, I will show you the disintegration of empires.
Who is the judge of the World? Is it Jesus? Is it Isaiah? Is it me? Tune in to today’s lesson and learn what it means to BE the “servant of God” and the judge of the world!
Are we “doomed”? When someone demands that you “prove the Bible,” there are only two reasons: (1) that you should give up on improvable things, or (2) that someone really wants the Bible proven so they can believe. A true prophet of God is one who speaks well, not ill, of Torah, and who believes that when we keep Torah the land shall be blessed. A true spokesman for the Bible can prove all of his words through the Law of God, the foundation for all things. For without Law there is only anarchy and personal preference. Thus, when a prophet of God says “come and bring me your arguments” your arguments shall only be valid if you completely dismiss the factual evidence of “thou shalt” or “thou shalt not.” If your goal is to accept the foundation of Torah, you shall be well-pleased with Torah, the Bible, and God. If, however, your goal is by all means to avoid obedience to anything but your own desires, you are doomed. But even if you personally do not suffer much for your choices, you affect the ground upon which you walk, and your nation shall suffer. This is irrefutable: that though obedience to God does not always bring blessings or joy to the obedient, and that the disobedient many times prosper, a nation of disobedient people is a nation about to crumble. You can argue that Torah is no better than Koran or Buddha, but you would be wrong. You can argue that a land without God is a more advanced culture, but you would be foolish. Come hear today’s discussion and discover new thoughts.
What is a “worm”? We know the meaning in modern terms to be a man who is not a man, but a mealy-mouth, or, more specifically, one who does not stand up for his rights. Yet, to stand up for one’s own rights is to stand up for everyone’s rights. What good is it to be treated correctly, that is, through Torah, if one fees his fellow man to the wolves? What good is it to “grandfathered” in if it means that the next guy doesn’t have the same or similar right? The worm, then, is a man’s soul. And when a man dies, his soul continues on, as does the worm. The only question is, will the worm continue on eternally as a worm, or shall it be enlightened to the greater level? And if still a worm, shall not that worm be tortured constantly for all of the moments it did not stand up for the Torah rights of men? When does that torture end? This week, we learn that God is constantly moving us to become men instead of worms. Through the words of Isaiah, God HELPS us moment by moment, providing us with opportunities to become men rather than worms. As the evil in this world now manifests itself in a very overt manner, it is imperative that we choose to be men and not worms, to fight for Torah and not take the Mark of the Beast, to die for Torah rather than to live like worms.
So now the truth comes out. The
When God speaks, the atheists listen. When the atheists are silenced, the people hear. But even when the people hear, they are stupid. For then they make idols. Rather than disbelieve God, they make Him into a man. What ho?
Who is God? Who are YOU? Are you the same as God? Is ANYONE the same as God? Is every person capable to create their own reality? If so, where are all the wishes granted of desperate men and women whose hearts yearn and ache for love, loved ones, power, money, and so forth? In fact, only God creates reality. There is only one reality we can know and all else is conjecture. Isn’t it interesting that those who dispose of God nevertheless look to scientific “theory” to provide answers for those things which God has already explained to our senses? There is one God, and therefore the universe works according to one perfectly mathematical plan, which has, over and over again, been proved by science. There is no multiplicity of gods working in or out of tandem. There is no chaos which magically comes together to make one uniform mechanism we call reality. There is only order, sameness, and God.
The main issues with the world today
are centered on competing interests.
Islamism, a collectivism, threatens all.
At the same time, communism is arising anew, molding thought and population. But hedonism, against both communism and
Islamism, is also sweeping through the nations, forming new
In the present day, we are in a war between good and evil. It is not by our own power, but only by the word of the Lord shall the Earth be reconstituted back to righteousness. Then, there shall be a kingdom of heaven on earth. Today’s portion extends this same message, especially that all flesh withers and all kindnesses fade. As the Book of Ecclesiastes states, “fear God and do His commandments.”
Hezekiah has 15 extra years, being
“born again” and “saved” by God, through repentance and prayer. So what does Hezekiah do? He indulges himself and gives away the
secrets of the kingdom. When Isaiah
informs Hezekiah that his carelessness is the destruction of
The sun moved backwards. How? Why? What is the proof? We find further that God saved Hezekiah, not only the king’s life but also his soul. What makes Hezekiah so special? What makes Hezekiah so ordinary? You will enjoy this extra-special and slightly-long broadcast!
Hezekiah, the good king, “won” the

The people of the land ultimately
have the power to change their destinies.
If they rise up without God, they will kill everything in their path,
including each other. If they rise up
with God but without Torah, it will be likewise. Only if the people rise up with Torah, and
the expectation of equal justice under the law, and not special rights or
privileges, will the land be saved from all of its enemies, foreign and
domestic. Hear me, O Israel and
The parallels between yesterday and today are startling, more so when between today and thousands of years ago. Nothing has changed. The people would rather be told sweet words than the truth. Come listen to a rousing hour of Bible study, political commentary, and lively banter!

When civilization crumbled, sit will
not be in the face of opposition from man, but because man surrenders. It will not be technology, but man’s apathy
towards that technology, towards its evil use.
Drones? Good in the hands of good
men, our end in the hands of evil men, indiscriminate killing in the hands of
mediocre men. IPhones? Wonderful when controlled by the godly,
enslavement when the levers are pulled by the wicked. How do evil men gain control over good men?
Listen to today’s lesson, which begins an historical documentation from Isaiah
concerning the overthrow of
More and more we see a rendering today of the Book of Isaiah. The past, present and future converging on us at once. Evil spreading over the whole world so that there is no place to go, nowhere to hide. But God has made a way for the righteous. There is a remnant, a ransomed, a people of God. And what is their common denominator? They believe in Law. They believe in directives. They believe in morality. They understand humility towards something bigger than themselves and their desires. They know the way of coveting, the root of all evil, and they shun it. They avoid and fight against communism. They fear to murder, and they fight against Islamic radicalism which permits indiscriminate killing of aliens (infidels). Now is the time to realign with the Lord God and His eternal Law, Torah.
Time to wake up! Open your eyes! The presidents of the world flout the law of God, the law of nature, and the law of the land. You are witnesses to it. It is up to you. The only solution is a return to Torah.
Why is communism in the Bible? Is it because collectivism a good system, benefiting the greater good economically and socially? In a word, hardly! Listen in today, on a winding pathway of truth and knowledge that will bring you into light, hopefully for good!
Demons. Satyrs and succubi. What are the connections between the unclean birds of the air, the beasts of desolation, the end of times, and demonic forces? How can a world ravaged by sin make a comeback? Only through God. Otherwise, a lazy and weak nation shall appoint a cruel lord over them. In the name of safety we shall permit the point of the government sword to direct us. Only Torah, the Law, is the answer.

first book, THE MARK, is online
Welcome to the University of Truth. Here you will learn Truth. Not organized religion, not unsubstantiated doctrine, but unfiltered Truth as our Creator has given us. There is indeed Truth and it is easy to see if only you look. If you have ears to hear and eyes to see, we will teach you.
First, when we say "The Truth" we do not mean facts per se. Facts are necessary to prove certain things, but The Truth is well-known, and distinguishable from lies. The Truth is indeed based on facts, but for us The Truth is not a compilation of data and evidence which excludes every unseen thing. Indeed, the unseen must be regarded as The Truth (if not fact) as deliberately as that which is seen. Second, we do not say The Truth is a point of view. Truth must be universal and must apply to every person, regardless of gender, color, culture, religion, or intelligence level. The Truth is not an opinion, even if it includes certain leaps which must be considered. Third, The Truth is not a one-liner, and it isn't a one-dimensional thought, but it encompasses everything we know about science, religion, instinct, and the human experience.
This is The Truth we hope to bring to you.
away people will have the wrong idea of our core and goals; and this is because
the doctrines of the world are well-known, and to categorize and pigeonhole The
Truth with such fritter is the easiest way to dismiss the unknown. You see, we are
explorers into uncharted territory. We are not connected to a particular
doctrine, or any related thing of which we are aware. In fact, we are not
really believers in “religion” at all. We are essentially pioneers and
scientists into the world of Tanakh/New Testament
Our faith is in one God, the Creator of the universe (which we can prove), and our light is in Torah. We see Jesus as something peculiarly different than other traditionalists. Contrary to Constantinian Christianity, we do not view Jesus as God, for there is only One God. Contrary to Judaism, we do not view Jesus as a traitor or a myth. To us, it seems that just about everyone has missed the boat.
Jesus Christ was extraordinary, and not altogether for miracles, or any doctrine that has been placed upon him, but for prophecy, lawfulness, courage, honor, and charisma. We believe He was resurrected, but not for the reasons you may think. We subscribe not to a dogma of salvation per se, but of repentance which is Christ's only message. Who will argue that repentance (teshuva) is necessary? Who will argue that lawfulness is necessary? What human being will argue against that we should treat each other as we would want to be treated?
will be flatly stated, by some doctrinists, that
Christ was a lawbreaker, or a heretic, or one who leads to idolatry.
These are not only incorrect assumptions, but are easily refuted by the words
of Gospel, and even underlying foundations of Talmud.
We believe that the Jews are a chosen people, with a singular relationship to God, which has never been lost or rescinded. Christianity in no way replaces Judaism, but Christ adds to the understanding of The Truth.
Concerning some specific things which we believe:
1. To be human means being animal, human, or some mixture of the two, a level of savagery. No human is or ever has been purely animal or purely human.
2. Free Will, the ability to reason and choose with long-range goals or goals beyond mere survival, is given only to human beings. This is both our gift and our curse.
3. There is a true, inflexible, and non-relative human morality. It includes the Golden Rule, and the concepts of dignity, honor, and compassion. This is easily proven.
4. Free Will is always present in a human, regardless of age or culture. It resides within, unlocked naturally by parental education and experience.
5. The Truth requires that human beings keep their behavior in some type of cage, as a way to guide, monitor, and preserve the humanity of humans.
6. Although every religion (Christian, Islam, Judaic, Buddhist, Hindu, Taoist, etc) reveals some type of cage, the Torah is the most excellent and moral of all cages. This is easily proven.
7. God exists and has formed this universe. Mankind is a special creation of God. God predates all things and is present in our daily lives. All of these things are easily proven by mathematics and science.
8. Man was not created to be just another animal. Man has a singular purpose, and reason for being. While God's ultimate purpose is not fully known, the mere fact of human existence is contrary to evolutionary themes. Man is by nature anti-evolutionary though profoundly progress-oriented.
9. God has endowed humans with inalienable rights, the greatest of which is the knowledge of good and evil (yin and yang, happiness and unhappiness). Other animals may feel such things, but only man can reflect on these emotions. This knowledge may cause more or less savagery, which either dilutes or enhances true morality.
10. The Torah provides for the ways of true morality and righteousness. Jesus Christ provides an extension of this which is unique. Jesus Christ's veracity is easily proven. His right to extrapolate on Torah Law, question Temple authority, and create alternative yet lawful lifestyles is rooted in the Tanakh itself, and is blessed by the prophets of old. His message is not new, but Christ's influence is new, affecting the entire world, historically and culturally, as no other.
11. Jesus Christ is not God, but is the greatest representative ever sent, literally God's Son (easily proven by Christ's own words).
12. God has multiple characteristics (easily shown in Torah, and proven in science), but "trinity" is not the proper term for this. God is not limited to three facets, but may have 4, or 100 facets. Why not infinity?
13. There is only one Savior and He is God (easily proven by Christ's own words). Christ's message is not of himself but of repentance, his only message.
14. Repentance follows trespass. Trespass is disobedience to limits. Limits must always be literal and not conjecture. The Torah is the only Law of God. All repentance therefore concerns trespasses against Torah commandments. Christ upholds this. All of these things are easily proven through Torah and Christ's own words.
15. Salvation is evident through Torah. Christian doctrine has not been truthful about this. Jesus Christ cannot pay for your sins, but only your repentance pays for your sins. Christ's sacrifice is a symbol for this and many other things. We do not believe that anyone is punished for not accepting "the name of Christ." We are punished for our personal and individual sins, and we are rewarded for our personal and individual obedience and repentance. But we believe Christ, of all persons, is able to bring someone to that point. All of these things are easily proven.
16. Christ was right. Christianity as we know it is wrong. You are not born a sinner, but a savage. You do not have original sin, but an animal nature side by side with a human nature. You cannot say a simple prayer and obtain eternal salvation- your prayer must be the start of a new you. God does not notice your denomination or religion, but your sincerity, diligence, faith, and obedience.
17. God does not excuse intentional savagery, even if he excuses (with repentance) unintentional savagery (purely animal behavior at various times, crimes of passion, accidental trespasses, and incidental circumstances).
18. Payment is made here and hereafter. Here, through repentance. Christ can help you, guide you, even mentor you, but cannot substitute for you. You alone must make restitution with God and other human beings. In the hereafter, the literal "hell" is reserved for only the worst- otherwise, we must say that God is not just.
19. There are way-stations in the hereafter. "Purgatory" (in whatever form) is God's justice. This follows well-known and hidden concepts in all religions, including Judaism, Christianity, Islam, and others.
20. Resurrection is true, well-known in Judaic Zohar (qaballah), Christian doctrine, Koran, and in all the Eastern religions.
21. There is a future for man beyond this world and time. The final resurrection (whether one only or multiple) will follow an extinction of this universe. There will be a paradise (a new Jerusalem) where suffering and pain ends, where free will has no consequences, and where the laws of nature are not destructive.
As the University of Truth moves forward, we will expand upon and prove every of these things to the best of our ability, and with the most honest of intentions.
Who are we?
1. We are not humanists, atheists, agnostics, pagans, or satanists because we love God. However, we do love the mind and heart of many humanist viewpoints towards man's inhumanity to his fellow man (even if we disagree mostly with their political strategies).
2. We are not all Jews, but we love the Torah as God's only Law, so that we are Jews in spirit.
3. We are not
Christians per se because we do not embrace many of the doctrines which
identify a Christian one to another. Christianity has at the same time
accepted and rejected the Torah, causing conflict with the human nature of many
of its followers. Christ would not approve such doctrine. We love
God has often spoken through prophets, judges, and kings. To say that Christ is not equal or greater than some (or all) of these is simply prejudicial. If the Jews accepted Christ (not as Saviour or Messiah, but for what He really is), the Christian religion would either crumble, or else they would persecute the Jews to no end for accepting this part of The Truth. But history, rabbinic judgment, and peer pressure preclude the Truth from ever being discerned by but a small handful of radical "biblical astronauts", such as ourselves.
4. We are not Islam, and we reject Islamic doctrine, but we love the passion of Islam, and wish it were used for humanity and not savagery.
5. We are not Buddhists, but we love their peace.
6. We are not Hindu, and reject their caste system, but we love their eye on the prize.
7. We do not claim to be a new religion, and we are not a synthesis of religions. We are not new age, or ecumenical, or universalistic. We believe that every human being knows The Truth, but that doctrines have carried humanity far from it.
We follow The Truth. We follow the Torah. We follow Christ. We follow humanity over savagery. Religion has a bad habit of making The Truth fit to doctrine instead of vice versa.
We question all doctrine, and reject it when it chafes against The Truth. We question doctrine, whether Jewish, Christian, Islamic, or any other. We argue points of Law, and question at times the validity of the Sages. We scoff at tenets which are blown apart by reading Torah or Christ.
The first doctrine which we explode is that Christ and the Torah are at odds with each other. This is incorrect in its assumption, and wrong in its implementation. One has only to read Christ's words to see that he never, NEVER, disagrees with Torah. His yoke is "lighter" means that he doesn't lay extra burdens- but the burden of Torah is still there. Christ never ate unapproved food, led his followers away from God or Torah, nor did any other thing of which He is continually accused. This does not make Christ a perfect sacrifice, but a perfect example. He is not "just a man." Nor a myth, else why try to continually crucify a myth? Jews do not give Christ enough credit, and Christians give Christ too much credit. One has only to read Matthew 23:3 to show the former, and Matthew 5:19 (in or out of context) to prove the latter.
things we will show at length soon enough, but for now we wish only to set a
pace. We do not live in any doctrine that you've ever heard before.
We understand that Christianity paints you a very different picture of Jesus Christ, and that's too bad.
how is it that we have The Truth, but none others do? We will only answer, how
should we know why we were chosen to know these things? Meanwhile, as we
progress in our spirituality, Christians and Jews alike will cluck at our ways,
astounded that we should believe in Christ as we do.
Others who have only a passing interest in such things may find the introduction of Law and Christ as tiresome, but then we must ask: are you truly seeking Truth, or only your own desires?
The Truth must be found where it resides.
