The Old Testament tends to focus on retribution and punishment and has many dark passages whilst the New Testament tends to focus on rehabilitation and redemption.
As examples of the dreadful text in the Old Testament, let us consider this from Old Testament Hosea:
“You shall acknowledge no God but me. . . . You are destroyed, Israel. . . . The people of Samaria must bear their guilt, because they have rebelled against their God. They will fall by the sword; their little ones will be dashed to the ground, their pregnant women ripped open.”Hosea 13:4, 9, 16 New International Version
There are numerous passages about the Caananites portraying them as bad and worthy of death. Believers tend to think God destroyed the Canaanites because they were depraved and immoral, but the bible does not state that. They were labeled “evil” and “wicked” then killed — because they did not worship him. These people did nothing wrong. They were “at peace and secure,” but they were earmarked for elimination in a ‘holocaust’.
“And in those days the tribe of the Danites was seeking a place of their own where they might settle, because they had not yet come into an inheritance among the tribes of Israel. . . . Then they said to [the priest], ‘Please inquire of God to learn whether our journey will be successful.’ The priest answered them, ‘Go in peace. Your journey has the Lord’s approval.’ . . . Then they took what Micah had made, and his priest, and went on to Laish, against a people at peace and secure. They attacked them with the sword and burned down their city. . . . The Danites rebuilt the city and settled there.”Judges 18:1–28 NIV
The Canaanites were not the evildoers. The Israelites were the invaders! The invaders were the evildoers. Here is another murderous passage:
“See, the day of the Lord is coming — a cruel day, with wrath and fierce anger. . . . I will put an end to the arrogance of the haughty. . . . Their infants will be dashed to pieces before their eyes; their houses will be looted and their wives violated.”Isaiah 13:9–16 NIV
There is no justifiable logic behind the passage and it certainly does not fit within the ‘Philosophy of Jesus’. It appears that Old Testament supporters deemed human life to be worthless. Their own megalomaniac desires sat above the human values espoused by Jesus and Christianity.
In the next passage, someone cops it for miscegenation (mixed race breeding). The priest Phinehas murdered a loving couple for the crime of miscegenation. Then he was praised by God and rewarded him with a perpetual priesthood for keeping the nation racially pure.
“Just then one of the Israelites came and brought a Midianite woman into his family, in the sight of Moses and in the sight of the whole congregation of the Israelites. When Phinehas, son of Eleazar, son of Aaron the priest, saw it, he got up and left the congregation. Taking a spear in his hand, he went after the Israelite man into the tent, and pierced the two of them, the Israelite and the woman, through the belly. So the plague was stopped among the people of Israel. The Lord spoke to Moses, saying: ‘Phinehas, son of Eleazar, son of Aaron the priest, has turned back my wrath from the Israelites by manifesting such zeal among them on my behalf that in my jealousy I did not consume the Israelites. Therefore say, “I hereby grant him my covenant of peace. It shall be for him and for his descendants after him a covenant of perpetual priesthood, because he was zealous for his God, and made atonement for the Israelites.’ '”Numbers 25:6–13 NRSV
In the next passage, a daugher is burned as a sacrifice to God! General Jephthah made a vow with God in order to defeat the enemy. When Jephthah won the war, God received his hundred pounds of flesh.
“And Jephthah made a vow to the Lord: ‘If you give the Ammonites into my hands, whatever comes out of the door of my house to meet me when I return in triumph from the Ammonites will be the Lord’s, and I will sacrifice it as a burnt offering.’ . . . When Jephthah returned to his home in Mizpah, who should come out to meet him but his daughter, dancing to the sound of timbrels! . . . After the two months, she returned to her father, and he did to her as he had vowed.”Judges 11:30–39 NIV
After burning his daughter, Jephthah was rewarded with a judgeship and was later buried with honor.
Cannibalism is also trendy! The God of the Old Testament is not above telling people to eat human flesh. Of the nine instances in the Old Testament, here is the worst:
“And if ye will not for all this hearken unto me, but walk contrary unto me; Then I will walk contrary unto you also in fury; and I, even I, will chastise you seven times for your sins. And ye shall eat the flesh of your sons, and the flesh of your daughters shall ye eat.”Leviticus 26:27–29 King James Version
God even condones rape as a punishment. Even worse it is rape of the inocent daughters of the wrongdoers! You need to read the passage carefully to comprehend its meaning. The Israelites were asking why they were being attacked by the Babylonians:
“Hear and give ear; do not be haughty, for the Lord has spoken. . . . And if you say in your heart, ‘Why have these things come upon me?’ it is for the greatness of your iniquity that your skirts are lifted up, and you are violated . . . because you have forgotten me and trusted in lies. I myself will lift up your skirts over your face, and your shame will be seen.”Jeremiah 13:15–26 NRSV
“Skirts lifted up” is sexual assault. “Violate” is rape. The King James Version has the quaint “heels made bare,” which hides the sexual assault. Also, you may notice that the ‘wickedness’ for which their daughters were being raped was not immorality or depravity; it was simply because “you have forgotten me.”
The next passage is infanticide not dissimilar to the modern infanticide at ‘Planed Parenthood’.
“O daughter Babylon, you devastator! Happy shall they be who pay you back what you have done to us! Happy shall they be who take your little ones and dash them against the rock!”Psalm 137:8–9 NRSV
This was not referring to wartime. He clearly says that believers should be happy to kill innocent babies of those who stop you from worshiping your god.
The author of Winnie the Pooh, A.A. Milne, said:
“The Old Testament is responsible for more atheism, agnosticism, disbelief — call it what you will — than any book ever written; it has emptied more churches than all the counterattractions of cinema, motor bicycle and golf course.”
Here is another shocker from the old testament. Toleration of slavery:
However, you may purchase male or female slaves from among the foreigners who live among you. You may also purchase the children of such resident foreigners, including those who have been born in your land. You may treat them as your property, passing them on to your children as a permanent inheritance. You may treat your slaves like this, but the people of Israel, your relatives, must never be treated this way.Leviticus 25:44-46 NLT
We need to reject the Old Testament and all those that follow its ways. These evils will continue to occur when there are people that still revere and follow the Old Testament.
Retribution and punishment are do not fit with the ‘Philosophy of Jesus’. They must be rejected. Those that follow the ways of the Old Testament must be rejected. Jesus was a supporter of rehabilitation and redemption. These two concepts do not fit together. If some in society follow the Old Testament’s retribution and punishment whilst others follow Jesus’ rehabilitation and redemption , we can have no society. We have the unpleasant arrangement as depicted in the story of the ‘Good Samaritan’ where one group treats the bashing to near death of another tribe to be normal practice. Pleading with people that support the Old Testament’s teachings of retribution and punishment without just cause simply will not work. You will experience “Skirts lifted up” (sexual assault) and “Violate” (rape) without reason. Take my warning, it will come. You will be violated for no reason other than you are not of the same tribe. Being ‘nice’ will not defend you from these barbarities of people brought up under Old Testament thinking.
Unfortunately, Jesus is reputed to have supported Old Testament tradition:
“Do not think that I have come to abolish the law or the prophets…whoever breaks one of the least of these commandments, and teaches others to do the same, will be called least in the kingdom of heaven; but whoever does them and teaches them will be called great in the kingdom of heaven.”Jesus as reported by StPaul.
Jesus appears to be affirming Torah tradition. However, at the same time he was against ‘legalism’. Because the laws of Moses were basically negative, Hebrew people could make a show of following the law whilst still being evil in intent.
There is a clear difference between the “Old Testament” harshness and “New Testament” common-decency. There was a big ‘breakup point which occurred about 60-90 years after the death of Jesus. Christian anti-Judaism eventuates. Christian supersessionism starts. As written in the censored Wikipedia:
Supersessionism, also called replacement theology, is a Christian doctrine which asserts that the New Covenant through Jesus Christ supersedes the Old Covenant, which was made exclusively with the Jewish people.
In Christianity, supersessionism is a theological view on the current status of the church in relation to the Jewish people and Judaism. It holds that the Christian Church has succeeded the Israelites as the definitive people of God or that the New Covenant has replaced or superseded the Mosaic covenant. From a supersessionist’s “point of view, just by continuing to exist [outside the Church], the Jews dissent”. This view directly contrasts with dual-covenant theology which holds that the Mosaic covenant remains valid for Jews.
Supersessionism has formed a core tenet of the Christian Churches for the majority of their existence. Christian traditions that have traditionally championed dual-covenant theology (including the Roman Catholic, Reformed and Methodist teachings of this doctrine), have taught that the moral law continues to stand.https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Supersessionism
‘Supersessionism‘, thus, describes the idea that Christians (the people of “the new covenant”) have become the ‘chosen ones’. Christians take on the role as the ‘people of God’. This clashes with the Jewish claim that they alone are the ‘chosen ones’. Supersessionism is not specifically worded as such in the bible but the general message of Jesus as he rebukes the Pharisees, is that the ways of the Pharisees do not meet his approval. Specifically, his did not accept the money manipulation by the Pharisees in his time. He did not accept the impoverishment of people in his time. Nor would he accept the manipulation of modern money systems at a national and international level. Nor would he accept the impoverishment of peoples int he modern era through the manipulation of the IMF. The Jewish Virtual Library clearly states:
Of the various factions that emerged under Hasmoneanrule, three are of particular interest: the Pharisees, Sadducees, and Essenes. … The most important of the three were the Pharisees because they are the spiritual fathers of modern Judaism.Jewish Virtual Library https://www.jewishvirtuallibrary.org/pharisees-sadducees-and-essenes
Of interest, the passage continues with:
The SadduceesJewish Virtual Library https://www.jewishvirtuallibrary.org/pharisees-sadducees-and-essenes
The Sadducees were elitists who wanted to maintain the priestly caste, but they were also liberal in their willingness to incorporate Hellenism into their lives, something the Pharisees opposed. The Sadducees rejected the idea of the Oral Law and insisted on a literal interpretation of the Written Law; consequently, they did not believe in an after life, since it is not mentioned in the Torah. The main focus ofSadducee life was rituals associated with the Temple.
The Sadducees basically disappeared in the following years so their historical interest is of little interest to us. The third group, the Essenes are of special interest:
A third faction, the Essenes, emerged out of disgust with the other two. This sect believed the others had corrupted the city and the Temple. They moved out of Jerusalem and lived a monastic life in the desert …Jewish Virtual Library https://www.jewishvirtuallibrary.org/pharisees-sadducees-and-essenes
The Essenes are believed to have been formed around 500 B.C. They are often thought to be a thriving multi-regional network of village communities. In 1877, Helena P. Blavatsky believed that Jesus had been trained by the Essenes,[i] then left their community to become a travelling healer.[ii] There was a common thinking at the time that the Essenes had influenced Jesus. The Essenes were interested in the practice of healing. Annie Besant, the second President of the Theosophical Society, put forward that Jesus was “trained in an Essene community” and went to an “Essene monastery” in Egypt, where he was “fully instructed in the secret teachings which were the real fount of life among the Essenes.” [iii] It wasn’t until 1928 that Edmond Bordeaux Szekely published his translation of ‘The Essene Gospel of Peace’, an ancient manuscript discovered in the archives of the Vatican. It is a beautiful document. The beautiful words of Jesus and the ‘Elders of the Essene Brotherhood’ link the ‘Philosophy of Jesus’ to the ‘Philosophy of the Essenes’. I give you a taste of the words. Jesus was asked: “Which law comes from God? That of Moses, or your law?”
And Jesus answered: “God gave, by Moses, ten commandments to your forefathers. ‘These commandments are hard,’ said your forefathers, and they could not keep them. When Moses saw this, he had compassion on his people, and would not that they perish. And then he gave them ten times ten commandments. For he whose feet are strong as the mountain of Zion, needs no crutches; but he whose limbs do shake, gets further having crutches, than without them. And Moses said to the Lord: ‘My heart is filled with sorrow, for my people will be lost. For they are without knowledge, and are not able to understand thy commandments. They are as little children who cannot yet understand their father’s words. Suffer, Lord, that I give them other laws, that they may not perish. if they may not be with thee, Lord, let them not be against thee; that they may sustain themselves, and when the time has come, and they are ripe for thy words, reveal to hem thy laws.’ For that did Moses break the two tablets of s tone whereon were written the ten commandments, and he gave them ten times ten in their stead. And of these ten times ten the Scribes and Pharisees have made a hundred times ten commandments. And they have laid unbearable burdens on your shoulders, that they themselves do not carry. For the more nigh are the commandments to God, the less do we need; and the farther they are from God, then the more do we need. Wherefore are the laws of the Pharisees and Scribes innumerable; the laws of the Son of Man seven; of the angels three; and of God one.
“Therefore, I teach you only those laws which you can understand, that you may become men, and follow the seven laws of the Son of Man. Then will the unknown angels of the Heavenly Father also reveal their laws to you, that God’s holy spirit may descend upon you, and lead you to his law.”The Essene Gosel Of Peace. Book One http://essene.com/GospelOfPeace/peace1.html
You find the words of Jesus such as:
“Love one another, for God is love, and so shall his angels know that you walk in his paths. And then shall all the angels come before your face and serve you. And Satan with all sins, diseases and uncleannesses shall depart from your body. Go, eschew your sins; repent yourselves; baptize yourselves; that you may be born again and sin no more.”The Essene Gosel Of Peace. Book One http://essene.com/GospelOfPeace/peace1.html
Jesus was effectively telling us that worship was best done by leading a ‘good’ life. My usual statement is my explanation of happiness:
“The best way to be happy is not by doing self indulgent things, but by making those around you happy. When you make them happy, you will be happy.”
When people say that Jesus was a Jew, they are misleading the thought process. The Hebrew society by that time has fractured into three separate sects. The Jewish Virtual Library attests that the Pharasees were the most important sect because “they are the spiritual fathers of modern Judaism.” But Jesus was not a Pharasee. Jesus constantly rebuked the Pharasees.
You serpents, you brood of vipers, how are you to escape being sentenced to hell?Jesus as reported by Matthew 23:33
… Because of this, I am sending you prophets and wise men and teachers. Some of them you will kill and crucify, and others you will flog in your synagogues and persecute in town after town.
It is not reasonable to call Jesus a Jew. He was Hebrew. The word did not exist and he was not a Pharisee. He lets rip again:
Then Jesus spoke to the crowds and to His disciples, saying: “The scribes and the Pharisees have seated themselves in the chair of Moses; therefore all that they tell you, do and observe, but do not do according to their deeds; for they say things and do not do them. “They tie up heavy burdens and lay them on men’s shoulders, but they themselves are unwilling to move them with so much as a finger. “But they do all their deeds to be noticed by men; for they broaden their phylacteries and lengthen the tassels of their garments. “They love the place of honor at banquets and the chief seats in the synagogues, and respectful greetings in the market places, and being called Rabbi by men. “But do not be called Rabbi; for One is your Teacher, and you are all brothers. “Do not call anyone on earth your father; for One is your Father, He who is in heaven. “Do not be called leaders; for One is your Leader, that is, Christ. “But the greatest among you shall be your servant. “Whoever exalts himself shall be humbled; and whoever humbles himself shall be exalted.
“But woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites, because you shut off the kingdom of heaven from people; for you do not enter in yourselves, nor do you allow those who are entering to go in. [“Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites, because you devour widows’ houses, and for a pretense you make long prayers; therefore you will receive greater condemnation.]
“Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites, because you travel around on sea and land to make one proselyte; and when he becomes one, you make him twice as much a son of hell as yourselves.
“Woe to you, blind guides, who say, ‘Whoever swears by the temple, that is nothing; but whoever swears by the gold of the temple is obligated.’ “You fools and blind men! Which is more important, the gold or the temple that sanctified the gold? “And, ‘Whoever swears by the altar, that is nothing, but whoever swears by the offering on it, he is obligated.’ “You blind men, which is more important, the offering, or the altar that sanctifies the offering? “Therefore, whoever swears by the altar, swears both by the altar and by everything on it. “And whoever swears by the temple, swears both by the temple and by Him who dwells within it. “And whoever swears by heaven, swears both by the throne of God and by Him who sits upon it.
“Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you tithe mint and dill and cummin, and have neglected the weightier provisions of the law: justice and mercy and faithfulness; but these are the things you should have done without neglecting the others. “You blind guides, who strain out a gnat and swallow a camel!
“Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you clean the outside of the cup and of the dish, but inside they are full of robbery and self-indulgence. “You blind Pharisee, first clean the inside of the cup and of the dish, so that the outside of it may become clean also.
“Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you are like whitewashed tombs which on the outside appear beautiful, but inside they are full of dead men’s bones and all uncleanness. “So you, too, outwardly appear righteous to men, but inwardly you are full of hypocrisy and lawlessness.
“Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you build the tombs of the prophets and adorn the monuments of the righteous, and say, ‘If we had been living in the days of our fathers, we would not have been partners with them in shedding the blood of the prophets.’ “So you testify against yourselves, that you are sons of those who murdered the prophets. “Fill up, then, the measure of the guilt of your fathers. “You serpents, you brood of vipers, how will you escape the sentence of hell?
“Therefore, behold, I am sending you prophets and wise men and scribes; some of them you will kill and crucify, and some of them you will scourge in your synagogues, and persecute from city to city, so that upon you may fall the guilt of all the righteous blood shed on earth, from the blood of righteous Abel to the blood of Zechariah, the son of Berechiah, whom you murdered between the temple and the altar. “Truly I say to you, all these things will come upon this generation.
“Jerusalem, Jerusalem, who kills the prophets and stones those who are sent to her! How often I wanted to gather your children together, the way a hen gathers her chicks under her wings, and you were unwilling. “Behold, your house is being left to you desolate! “For I say to you, from now on you will not see Me until you say, ‘BLESSED IS HE WHO COMES IN THE NAME OF THE LORD!’”Jesus as reported by Matthew 23:1-39
He is clearly indicating that to be a good person, you need to be a good person. You need to do good deeds. These do not require a big show. Just quietly help people on their way through life. Jesus explains that the Pharisees and Sadducees displayed their wickedness in many ways. They burdened the people with unnecessary ways of their own invention and made no effort to help them in meaningful ways.
So Jesus taught to be a good ‘Christian’, you must practice what I call “The Philosophy of Jesus”. Your reward, if needed, is to feel good for what you have done and to get to heaven, although heaven is not described. Thus there is an afterlife and there is something bigger than oneself. The Jweish life following the rule of Moses and a baggage of tradition largel spelt out by the rabbis is summed up by these two memes:
Her wording follows:
Hi Smoloko, you asked me about my journey, from being a follower of the false Jewish belief system to turning my life over to the true religion of the Lord Jesus Christ. In a nutshell, here it is:
I am an ex-Jew who got fed up with Jewish hypocrisy and ridiculing Jesus Christ and His followers. I turned my life over to Our Savior and was baptized on Easter Sunday.
I had the typical exposure that Jews teach about Christ and Christianity, that is to say, the false doctrine of the Jews.
I was taught that Christians are bad people, that Jesus Christ was a devil, a sorcerer and the bastard son of a whore, that only the Jews are righteous, and that they have been persecuted by the Christians for no good reason, in fact, no reason at all.
The rabbis are depicted as gentle scholars who wouldn’t hurt a fly, even though they are thieves and cheats and, in many cases, sex maniacs and even pedophiles.
The word of the rabbis is law in the Jewish community, and if you don’t do what they want, you can be thrown out of the synagogue, or at the very least exiled to the most undesirable row in the sanctuary.
I never really agreed with these teachings, but I didn’t have the knowledge or the power to oppose it. I didn’t like the spoiled Jew kids that I went to school with because most of them were rich and stuck-up.
Another of the many reasons that I, who was born into the Jewish belief system, left the Jewish way of life and turned my life over to Christ, was that I simply could not stand how the Jews don’t believe there is any reward or punishment after death. They believe that “when you’re dead, you’re dead.” Finito, kaput, the end!
That’s why the Jews are so materialistic. The Jewish philosophy is, get all you can while you’re here, and the hell with the people you harm. It’s every man (and woman) for himself. And the Jews, being cunning and sneaky and sly and dishonest, believe they’ll come out on top.
My first real exposure to Christ came when I went away to college. It was a Christian oriented school, and I went to chapel on Wednesdays and Sundays, and read the New Testament. That’s when I found that there was so much that I didn’t know, and that what I was taught as a young kid was mostly lies.
The teachers at the college were Christians, and with their help I began to learn about Jesus.
The truth is, and I only discovered this when I read the WHOLE Bible, that Jesus came to save mankind, not to destroy it as the Jews teach.
It is well known that the Jews murdered Jesus Christ because he preached against their money-grubbing religion.
But of course they don’t admit that, because they don’t want that on their consciences.
So they get around that by deriding Christ as just an ordinary person. And any Jew who doesn’t go along with that is put on the rabbis’ s–t list. He is considered fair game, just like any Christian.
I give thanks to God for leading me to the Lord Jesus who is there for all who accept Him into their hearts.
It wasn’t until I became a follower of Jesus that I realized that Jews are, for the most part, greedy, evil people, who believe that they are superior and have been chosen by God to rule the world.
Of course, we know that that is horse manure, and that the Jews are heading for a real holocaust, not the phony one that they are always harping about, but the one that will take place when Our Lord returns to bring his followers to Heaven.
I feel blessed that I am a Christian, accepted and loved by other Christians, in contrast to the Jews, who despise and ostracize me because I have accepted Jesus Christ as the true Messiah.http://www.jewworldorder.org/why-i-left-judaism-and-became-a-christian/
In her words, she states: “Judaism is a dark, sterile, false set of beliefs — I don’t consider it a religion — that teaches that only the Jews are human, and that non-Jews, and especially the Christians, are animals and insects, fit only to be enslaved by and work for the Jews.”
And so the use of the Old Testament as a basis for a religion is a recipe for conflict with those that follow the Philosophy of Jesus or, for that matter, conflict with those of any other religion. The conflict is in the text of the Old Testament. If you follow the words of the Old Testament, you will be in conflict with the remainder of civilization.
The Old Testament God has a merciless nature demanding extermination, cruelty, and destruction. Here is Old Testament God’s command to Saul in the to wipe out the people of Amalek:
“Now go and strike Amalek and utterly destroy all that he has, and do not spare him; but put to death both man and woman, child and infant, ox and sheep, camel and donkey.”1 Sam. 15:3
This Old Testament God frequently demands death, destruction, and unprovoked cruelty. It is not even pay-back, it is just cruelty to other tribes without historical reason. In the following, without provocation, the tribe moves into other people’s lands then murders the entire population. This is not a defensive battle. They march in, take the land and assets, and genocide the previous inhabitants.
When the Lord your God brings you into the land which you are entering to possess and has plucked away many nations before you, the Hittites, the Girgashites, the Amorites, the Canaanites, the Perizzites, the Hivites, and the Jebusites, seven nations greater and mightier than you, And when the Lord your God gives them over to you and you smite them, then you must utterly destroy them. You shall make no covenant with them, or show mercy to them.Deuteronomy 7:1-2 AMPC
In comparison, the God as described by Jesus is an entirely different God. He is compassionate. He is the complete opposite. To try and say that it is the same god is false. He might have the same name but he is not the same. Old Testament God is unwarranted evil as if he were Satan. New Testament God espouses hope, forgiveness, and common decency. There no similarity and the followers of the different testaments will have different approaches to dealing with each other in society. These religions can never be compatible.
As further example, let us look at the influence of following the following story line: Old Testament God has approved a dastardly act: In the book of Judges, the story of Samson is given as an example of approved behaviour. Samson is about to be married and makes a bet with thirty men who are to be part of the ceremony. Samson loses the bet and is required to furnish the thirty men with suitable sets of clothes for the event). Samson goes down to a local town and kills thirty ‘innocent’ men for their garments. Here it is in the Old Testament wording:
“Then the Spirit of the LORD came upon him mightily, and he went down to Ashkelon and killed thirty of them and took their spoil and gave the changes of clothes to those who told the riddle. And his anger burned, and he went up to his father’s house”Judges 14:19
Old Testament God has permitted evil against another tribe for the gain of an individual in his tribe. God has allowed Samson to murder thirty locals to get thirty sets of clothes. This is not what we expect in a civilized world. Civilization began when theft, rape, and murder were banned. We must reject this god of evil and follow the God of mercy of the New Testament. There is no way that we can live with persons that accept this guiding ideology. We will always loose as our concepts of compassion and forgiveness will never hold up against persons capable of such actions. Evil intent is generated again:
The Lord said, “I will blot out man whom I have created from the face of the land, from man to animals to creeping things and to birds of the sky; for I am sorry that I have made them,”Genesis 6:7
This God may have the same name, and many may believe that they are the same, but the characteristics of the God of Moses are entirely different to the God of Jesus. Those that follow the malice of the God of the Old Testament will not be compatible with those that follow the God as described in the New Testament.
“Due to his own original special nature, the Jew cannot possess a religious institution, if for no other reason because he lacks idealism in any form, and hence belief in a hereafter is absolutely foreign to him. And a religion in the Aryan sense cannot be imagined which lacks the conviction of survival after death in some form. Indeed, the Talmud is not a book to prepare a man for the hereafter, but only for a practical and profitable life in this world”Mein Kampf, Chap. 11
Here is talk of race-mixing to destroy a civilisation.
“With satanic joy in his face, the black-haired Jewish youth lurks in wait for the unsuspecting girl whom he defiles with his blood, thus stealing her from her people”(Mein Kampf, Chap. 11).
The passage states that the most powerful tool used against the White race is that of mongrelization or race-mixing. Nowadays this is renamed “Multiculturalism”. Any dissenters are called “Racists”. Any supporters of the white race are called “Racists”, “Bigots”, and “White Supremists”. Completely ignoring Jewish Supremism. The author of the above was slandered and has his nation flattened.
In the decades around fifty years after the Death and Resurrection of Christ, the Rabbis inserted into the daily prayers, known as the ‘Eighteen Benedictions’, a ‘blessing’ on the minim. This ‘blessing’ was actually a curse and the minim refers to heretics or apostates. They did not explicitly identify Christians as those placed under the curse. The Rabbis were trying to push out those with beliefs aligned with the ‘philosophy of Jesus’. It is surprising that there are Rabbis who state that Christians worship the same god as the Jews. Christianity had dramatically changed the understanding of God from the god of Judaism.
