Government: Meant for good things?

https://ia601505.us.archive.org/21/items/GovernmentMeantForGoodThings/government%20meant%20for%20good%20things.mp3 It’s been bugging me so I’m just gonna scratch the itch and get rid of it. So I get emails from First Covenant Foundation with their newsletter, First Covenant Connection. Michael Dallen was one of the first to get me into the Seven Laws. I bought his book before I got the first edition …

Derived or God-given – A possible answer

Well, I shared my previous blog post on some Facebook forums. There were some cool answers. Let me share a link someone responded with. Please take a look. https://www.etzion.org.il/en/seven-noachide-laws

Derived or God-given

https://ia601507.us.archive.org/10/items/DerivedOrGodGiven/Derived%20or%20God%20given%20.mp3 So currently, I’m at a loss. It’s not clear in my head yet. I mean it makes sense in a way, but not. I’ll explain myself. I believed that God gave the seven laws in the same way as he gave the commandments to Moshe: direct, verbal, to be recorded for future generations. When …

Close to the Jew, far from the Gentile Part 2 – It’s theirs not yours

https://ia601506.us.archive.org/27/items/CloseToTheJewFarFromTheGentile/Close%20to%20the%20Jew%20far%20from%20the%20Gentile%20.mp3 It was not the first time that I had heard the argument, but hearing it from one who I truly admire was a jarring sensation. It was the claim that to study or keep the seven laws that were enjoined upon Adam and Noah apart from Jewish Torah tutelage was akin to theft. It …

The King continued: Who owns you?

https://ia601500.us.archive.org/5/items/WhoOwnsYou_201811/who%20owns%20you.mp3 So a man I highly respect responded to my previous article about the Divine Code’s words about the authority of the king. One of these days, I may have to write a tribute to him. Even when I’ve disagreed with his stance, he’s never rejected me, always shown such patience, even though others have …

Pittsburgh: the prohibition against murder, the law of justice and thoughts

https://ia601503.us.archive.org/28/items/pittsburgh_201810/pittsburgh.mp3 So I guess the news of it is all over the place, the tragedy that happened some place in America where a synagogue got shot up with 11 Jews being killed and others being injured. And once again, such a tragedy is used to breed stupidity. Typical. There was another shooting, one that happened …

Absorbing the message: The King

https://archive.org/download/AbsorbingTheMessage_201810/absorbing%20the%20message.mp3 A friend of mine shared with me contents from the latest edition of the Divine Code, by rabbi Moshe Weiner. What he sent me was under the section about theft. It took me aback to read it. I read and reread it. My wife used to tell me that when I studied the Bible, …

Personal view – Obedience to Authority cannot, CANNOT, be a Core Commandment upon Mankind

https://ia601501.us.archive.org/7/items/ObedienceNotDivine/obedience%20not%20divine.mp3 In the Soncino Edition of the Babylonian Talmud, one understanding of the law of Justice is obedience to authority. I.e., to establish courts of justice, or, perhaps, to observe social justice (Nahmanides on Gen. XXXIV, 13): Hast. Dict. (s.v. Noachian precepts) translates ‘obedience to authority‘. (footnote 33, folio 56a, Tractate Sanhedrin, Babylonian Talmud, found …

There will never be freedom

https://ia601505.us.archive.org/6/items/NeverFreedom/never%20freedom.mp3 No government can ever give you freedom. I believe that this is essentially true. Whether it be God as king, some coming messiah figure, a democracy, whatever, no government can ever give a person freedom in the absolute sense. Why? Because freedom means no restriction, exemption from power or control of another. But what …

What doesn’t make sense

https://ia601502.us.archive.org/25/items/whatdoesntmakesense/whatdoesntmakesense.mp3 So by the title, you should see that this is a(nother) subjective piece / post. If something doesn’t make sense, it can only mean it doesn’t make sense to me. Whether it is objectively cogent or not is another question. It just may need explication, elucidation, explanation or some other “e” word. Oh, it …
