"Judaism, Christianity, Islam, Buddhism, Catholicism, Hinduism, Zoroastrianism, Mithraism" None of these words are defined in the Holy Scriptures nor are any of them recorded........
A man who is not known to me writes the following:
Before reading EPIDEMIC, I was never challenged by my teachers with questions like: "What were the changes to Judaism's tenets for Torah-living once the temple was destroyed and the Jewish people were out of Israel?" "Why is this the least documented eras of Jewish history?" "What happened in Babylon?" No minority culture has ever survived unscathed or unchanged in a majority environment, Never! "Why are the names of our months not Hebrew names?" Why do we still have prayers in Aramaic, the language we learned in Babylon?" An even BIGGER issue for me is, "What exactly did we take out of Babylon when we left?"
David Greenfeld, Teaneck, New Jersey
The gentleman offers the preface of a book that I am reading titled, EPIDEMIC by Dr. Russ Houck. I have already written about the book and recommended that you bother yourself to purchase this work and then read it. I have yet to arrive at the last chapter as I continue salivating over the information gathered and the commentary of Dr. Houck.
I was particularly appreciative of David Greenfeld's honest appraisal of what the book caused him to consider. He goes on to say, "This book IS a tough read for any truth seeking Orthodox Jews, or for that matter, like minded Christians."
|Christianity did not originate anything|
I myself do not agree with several things that I have read in the book however to set it next to my roll of toilet paper would only serve to demonstrate the ignorance so prevalent among men!
I had a dream back in August, 2011 that YHWH explained somewhere around October of the same year. I have posted the video several times http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c1G3rBAi46A which is my attempt to capture the significance of this experience, a virtual impossibility. What has and continues to be impressed upon me is that through religion we have applauded, if you will, our lack of wisdom when acknowledging our Creator. If one simply assesses the religious paradigms that are etched into every society be it ancient or current one constant concerning all of them is obvious, the divisions that coincide with the various belief found in all of them.
As I continue to read this book there is something different about what I am reading. I have read countless books however, EPIDEMIC is expounding on the dream of 2011. YHWH is getting ready to take from us what we have raised up in the absence of knowing what Adam saw when he first became a living being. It is as if the God of Creation is soon to take from us the very thing that causes us to hurt one another without so much as a thought. We truly have reached an epidemic of death and destruction outside of His Garden.
Blindness via religious hegemony was never placed into the Garden..It is what occurred after man was forced to leave. I challenge Christianity because of this dream and because seven years ago YHWH showed to me his disdain for the treatment of Israel..
Israel is not what men have portrayed!
Genesis 3:22 Yahweh God said, "Behold, the man has become like one of us, knowing good and evil. Now, lest he put forth his hand, and also take of the tree of life, and eat, and live forever... Therefore Yahweh God sent him forth from the garden of Eden, to till the ground from which he was taken. So he drove out the man; and he placed Cherubs at the east of the garden of Eden, and the flame of a sword which turned every way, to guard the way to the tree of life.
This book, not unlike the blood of the Messiah which guaranteed to rebirth of the nation of Israel guarantees to confound your belief system. Hopefully, what Adam, prior to naming the animals saw...will cause you to consider exactly how he felt leaving the Garden.
