Personal: It’s legal, so it’s ok – Out in the world

I’ve seen cruelty done in the name of the law. When someone tells me “it’s legal, so it’s ok,” then it shows me the dangers of the sort of people I live amongst. When someone who knows Torah and/or the seven laws, be it Gentile or Jew, tells me “it’s legal so it’s ok,” then …

“Hard, Ain’t it Hard” by the Redneck Rastafarian 

This article I’m about to share was written by the Redneck Rastafarian at http://redneck_rastafarian.tripod.com/hard.html and he gave me permission to share it here. There are so many thoughts here that reflect my own. As you may guess, I’m not saying I agree 100% with it, but, believe me, there is significant agreement, enough for me …

My loneliness

I’m a person who has rejected the claims of Jesus’ messiahship, but very often the people I end up being around are devout christians.  I’m against the modern governments of the world including the government of the land I live in. I have serious misgivings about the morality of its existence and the acts necessary …

As a high priest

Adapted from the words of Abby Sookraj, someone I consider to be righteous lady of virtue. A ger, that is someone who has fully naturalised and become an Torah observant Jew, should not feel they are less Jewish than a native Jew despite their non-Jewish ancestry.  Similarly, Gentiles who actively study & observe the 7 …

The words that follow are his words not mine. ———————- Commentary on some of my recent posts about moral responsibility — as between policy makers and …

It’s a shame …

So I heard a conversation, a meeting, where statements were made which were significantly disappointing to me. In this meeting, a gentile said that his rabbi had taught him that the seven laws were those laws which were imposed upon “slaves” that the Jews had captured. This was said in a derogatory sense, more associated …

Passover, the Oral Law and a Gentile

So, for Jews, Passover and the festival of Matzos has started. And as a Gentile, especially one passionate about the Seven Laws for humanity, I have nothing to do with the observance of Passover or Matzos. Here’s what I told someone who shared that it was allowed for “noahides” to do something or other during …

Modern Israel: From Egypt to Egypt

I saw someone who loves the modern state of Israel, seeing it as a beacon in a benighted Middle East, describe it thusly. A democracy with civil rights for all, sexual equality, freedom of expression, freedom of faith.  Now I know that many with modern Western sensibilities will see such a description and praise it, …

Heart sat at a distance – Is sincerity enough?

I don’t expect you to understand this, to grasp this. Part of me thinks that many who have left religions to grasp the seven laws no longer have day-to-day contact with the old faiths. But I do. I still have regular contact. Hmmm … maybe many do. I don’t know. I’m just doubtful right now. …

You look ridiculous, but you can only be true to yourself

After facing ridicule for some of my views by respected colleagues, friends and even a rabbi I respect, I decided to do the introspective thing again. This decision was also encouraged by the fact that people say that to share my view with my own children is child abuse. The politicians in the country that …
