Freedmen – Read Your Bibles Part One

I was assisted in this part one reposting and expansion by a bottle of Pine Ridge Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2018. A blast of blackberries and plums on the front end. Long sustain on the palate. A middle of vanilla, expresso, and oak. Moderate tannins. Cherries and licorice on the back end. Bold but smooth finish.

“I prayed for freedom for twenty years – but received no answer until I prayed with my feet.”

NOTE: This post in three parts is a transcription of a recording. This is me – Arthur, talking – raw and uncut – not writing. Myself and four other guys were at my house having a discussion that was fueled by hot wings (for them), vegan chili (for me), cognac, and beer. That is why the narrative is kinda “jerky,” inconsistent, profane, and in some places redundant. You will also see improper sentence structure in some places – like sentences ending in propositions.

Here Family, this is a repeat of an unregulated conversational exchange – not focused and structured writing. But – I am giving you the whole conversation. Questions were being asked, and some of those questions, responses, and rebutting statements are worked into the transcription to make it flow somewhat better. Most of the New International Version [NIV] and King James Version [KJV] biblical citations and other attributions were added later for clarity. Freedmen Family – you are getting the whole conversation. Read and reflect.

Why post this? Some folks have asked me if my Atheism informs my politics, I must respond “yes.” Beliefs inform all actions, and I think that religions, beliefs, and life philosophies are “operating systems” that shape one’s politics. That shape how one reacts (or not) to all things. That shape one’s outlook and proactivity. I am a full reparations activist – I am also the most complete and committed Atheist on the planet. This post is an opportunity for my Freedmen Family to know me better.

Full disclosure.

The other reason that I posted this here is because the politics in the Black [Freedmen] community is very much – too much, tied up in and with religion – churches – and preachers. Next to being released from legal slavery, and then being emancipated from the most onerous aspects of Jim Crow – reparations is the most important issue (yes) for us Freedmen in the here, and going forward until it is accomplished in the now. We have to do a mental reset in all aspects and at every level – that includes “belief systems.” My personal belief is that Christianity, the church, and the mindsets those constructs generate, has blunted our efforts to attain full citizenship and to obtain our reparational due – despite the fact that the Black church was quite prominent and instrumental in our previous freedom efforts.

In that respect – honors are due.

But!!! From the end of the “Civil Rights Era” going forward into the now – we have been fucked-over by the preacher-politician complex – that is just a fact. The dirty Democratic Party is the coordinator and beneficiary. Our Black preachers have always gotten in the way of good policy for Freedmen. For clergy – politics is just another income and influence stream, and churches serve as political indoctrination facilities – in addition to dispensing “hope” and “belief” bullshit. This post is not an assault on believers themselves. This is an assault on bad ideas, bad people, and what I perceive as bad beliefs. Bad beliefs always produce bad politics Family.

Always.

This post serves as a possible inducement for Freedmen to aggressively re-examine our individual, family, and group “operating systems,” and to evaluate whether they are politically and economically serving us in the here and now.

Not in heaven.

Ahh – HERE AND NOW MOTHERFUCKER.

Politics Is Life. – Politics Equals Resources. – Therefore:

I want all my Freedmen Family to understand the process by which I transitioned from believer to Atheist, by which I switched my allegiance from God – to an allegiance to Native Black American humanity and our reparations (other people are grown folks – and can take care of their own issues). My core of being (can we say “spirit?”) is now concretely foundationalized into the accomplishment of Black interests over that of white appeasement. I have snatched my focus away from heaven and the possibility of an ephemeral – unrealized salvation. No more God.

No more Jesus. No more Pastors. No more Church. I have refocused that same beautiful, reaching, transcendental, devotional energy towards the reparational ground I stand on – and the unliberated people in front of me.

Replacing the trinity of Father, Son, and Holy Spirit with the earthly triumvirate operationality of Business, Politics, and Economics. I can get on with the American practicality of creating a heaven in the here – and now, on THIS sacred ground.

TIME TO SWITCH IT UP

I look at Black clergymen as walking stacks of shit.

Many Black clergymen from then and now in the now are against reparations.

Never forget that religion did not, would not, and could not stop the exploitation of Black bodies. Never. Ever. The traditional African beliefs and practices did not stop them from practicing (even today) the inter-tribal trading and taking (in conflicts) for the purposes of enslavement – Black bodies. That unrelenting Black on Black enslavement done centuries before – and then feeding the Trans-Atlantic enterprise. Islamic piety certainly did not stop the African to Muslim slave trade (A trade that continues profitably till today?……… Oh Allah?).

The Catholic Church enthusiastically blessed the Trans-Atlantic slave trade. Colonial Christianity was slavery’s main philosophical support in America. Right?

Native American tribal beliefs certainly did not stop the American Indian from participating in the entire slavery enterprise from top to bottom. White Evangelical Christianity was one of the most powerful forces in countering Civil Rights efforts. Violently and politically. And the third Secretary Of State for the Confederacy was Jewish – Judah P. Benjamin. All bullshit. Whatever good that religion was able to do in releasing us from slavery and securing citizen’s rights for us – is miniscule in comparison to the exhaustive amount of damage it abetted, and continues to exact.

And With That.

It should be an embarrassment that the Black church is the strongest institution in our community. That institution equals continued failure. We will never move forward as a people as long as the church remains our strongest institution. Our earthly existence is fed by politics and capitalism. Spirituality and metaphysics is not going to cut it. Because Jesus is Not Power. Jesus is The Game being played on us. And that church is the biggest player – on us. That Church is literally pushing us into the grave. Turning the other cheek to the bullets of white supremacy means death. Ours. I don’t care about the history – I don’t care about the tradition. I am speaking on a dark and parasitic institution that sustains our bleak condition and is partly responsible for our troublesome trajectory right now – going forward.

We cannot afford “Hope” anymore.

PART ONE:

“Through these [words] he has given us his very great and precious promises, so that through them you may participate in the divine nature, having escaped the corruption in the world caused by evil desires.”

2 Peter 1:4 NIV

I am what you might call a “Bible Atheist.” My first verbal eruption recognizing that there was something profoundly wrong in the racialized politics, normalized white supremacy, and Negro codes of Christian America, occurred in the summer of August 1966. I was eleven years old at the time, and the Reverend Doctor Martin Luther King Junior was campaigning in Chicago (my town) for open housing and the desegregation of all neighborhoods in the city. On the fifth of August, a march was staged through an all-white neighborhood in the city.

Reverend King and his group was met with the usual (at the time, and still practiced today) race-fueled hostility. Flying bricks, bottles, rocks. Supremacist calls of “Nigger! Nigger! Nigger!” etc. Reverend King was blasted in the head with a nice fat rock. That nice fat rock knocked him dead on his ass. The proceedings were televised on local television. And we were intently watching on our home set. Reverend King said: “I have seen many demonstrations in the South, but I have never seen anything so hostile and so hateful as I have seen today.” Wow…

To me – Reverend King embodied our intersection of religion and politics.

From things that I have seen and heard in church and mosque. Things that I have seen and experienced in society. Independently turning over in my mind what I received from certain sermons in my grandmothers church. Revisiting what I heard from certain lectures at my parent’s masjid (Temple No. 2 – Nation Of Islam). I had been developing all kinds of doubts about Christianity, Islam, Jesus, Allah, Jehovah. God. God. God!!! – Salvation, segregation, and lynching – With Taxes? OK. A Christian country? OK. Jesus loves you? OK. Can be a Christian AND A NIGGER – at the same motherfucking time? Damn. Let me check my watch.

Even at that age – I could clearly see that something was not adding up. I had been harboring those doubts for at least a year. But I never said anything.

After the Reverend King made his statement, I turned to my grandmother and said: “Granma, why does God only help white people?” She said: “What? Ahh – Baby, I know that’s what it looks like, but God has a reward for folks that keep the faith! What you looking at is the Devil, not God – OK Baby?” She then put her hand on my head, and started “speaking in tongues.” In order to “keep the peace,” I just said: “OK” – and kept it moving by changing the subject. You know?

That following Sunday, after services, one of the “elder ladies” of the church pulled me to the side and began to question me about my doubts. She asked: “Have you been praying for understanding?” I said: “No.” She said: “No wonder!!! You haven’t been reading your Bible, have you?” I had to admit, I had not read it at all. Like everybody, I just went by what the preacher said. She retorted: “Well, you should read it. It will straighten you out!” I said, “OK I will.” I don’t think she realized that I would actually do it. But I’m glad she asked, because reading the Bible in its entirety is what made me a hard-core Atheist. It took me twenty months, because I was not just reading it; I was studying and cross-referencing, and compiling notes on it. I religiously (Ha!) used a concordance and Bible dictionary.

I was THINKING.

One must remember that this was done before the internet, personal computing, Post-Its, and Hi-Lighters. By the time I finished with Book 66(!) of the King James Version (Revelation). I was done with Christianity, God, AND Jesus. FINISHED.

When I started from Page 1 (Genesis). Till the day I closed the book after the very last turn. Page 1834 (Revelation). Listen. I newly encountered a dismal world of incomparable weirdness. Reading onward, I never found much that was useful there. It wasn’t entirely bad. A few pieces here and there of actual wisdom. There was some great poetry – beautiful stuff. And I found some stand-alone gems regarding goodwill and human relations that are actually more useful taken out of context. Yep – out of context. The divine prohibitions against eating pork in the Books of Isaiah, Leviticus, and Deuteronomy are good to follow if you’d like to maintain good health. At the same time – at the time – it did not seem that you could be considered a good Christian in Black America if you did not eat pork.

When I was a child in the early 1960’s, you could come under a “Negro” cultural watch and suspicion if you turned down Mama’s pork chops: “You sure you don’t want chops Baby?” True Black Christians happily lived with their pork-induced diabetes, renal failure, and high blood pressure as they walked with Jesus.

Pork-shunning Black Muslims at the time were cultural outliers.

In that Bible (and later, Quran) – I also found a lot of stuff that simply was not true or logical. Whole chapters, and entire sections that are simply not usable in this modern world. Hundreds of strong statements established. And then hundreds of strong statements clearly made that directly contradict those that were previously established, being done with no clarifying or qualifying explanations. Those solid – but contradictory statements are just made and placed. They sit there with no clear and definitive repeals or nullifications of the statements they contradict. You follow this one OR you follow that one. The “which one” to follow seems to be dependent upon denominational and/or individual tastes.

There are no actual – I mean no literal workable connections or bridges between those contradictions to make a whole, sensible, and coherent unity of “The Word” as an entirety. If this “Word” is meant for “all mankind” – we are seriously talking about a necessary but missing universal applicability issue here folks. That’s a problem. “The Word Of God” containing contradictory statements? At all?

That’s an astonishing problem.

Seeing this is when I began to understand why – and why there can be, so many denominations and sects of Christianity. Denominations are created between the spaces of the contradictions – along with a mix of egoism, money, and politics.

I also made long and troubling notes on the fact that a lot of important existential stuff was missing. Like the correct explanations for gravity, water, light, quantum physics, organic chemistry, weak force, strong force, electromagnetism, and DNA. Those are “creation essentials” Dude. And with This God allegedly being “The Originating Scientist” – the fucking “Creator” – OK? And with us human beings having the full capability to understand the proper information, that stuff needs to be in there. The divine explanations AND the holy equations. All in there.

Nothing There.

Why did mankind have to wait thousands of years for an Albert Einstein to come onto the scene of reality (late) and explain E Equals mc Squared wrapped into the expansively apparent nature of space-time? OK? Which would have been necessary descriptive pieces to explain in any correct explanation of creation? OK? The speed of light? Dark Matter? Dark Energy? Yes. “The Creator” should have covered all of this. In this book. OK? How did my geology textbook from grammar school not mention anything about “The Great Flood?” Is it because that alleged event cannot be verified scientifically? Is it because we can’t find ANY corroborating geological evidence anywhere? Why not? Christians? This DID happen? Right? What is a star? Well, the Bible says that they can fall from the sky. Really Dude? Well – that’s what it “scientifically” says in Revelation 8:10 NIV. All fucking day Man.

Did the Bible writers even understand what a star is?

Disease is caused by demons – Matthew 10:1 NIV?

The world is flat with four corners – Revelation 7:1 NIV. Is it?

A lot of stuff is there that outrages any sense of operational morality; a lot of stuff that if put into practice would be dangerously uncivilized. And – a lot of stuff is there that is so opposite to any concept of a quality life, that it is understandable why most Christians of today ignore many if not all of the most unworkable and unreasonable parts of the Bible. Like: “Do not wear clothes of wool and linen [or any two fibers] woven together.” That’s Deuteronomy 22:11 NIV.

“Silk and wool suit Pastor?” OK.

The problem is that there are no repealing statements anywhere in that Holy Bible for not doing the most heinous or nonsensical stuff anymore (like slavery, stoning, misogyny, or killing gays). The Holy Bible is so open-ended, contradictory, and disjointed that anyone with a plan or agenda can merely “interpret” into existence any kind of doctrinal (or political) set up that he wants. And could actually back it up with good biblical justification if anyone decides to call him on his bullshit. As of like – right now – tonight. There are 41,626 different sects and denominations of Christianity that have all allegedly been “revealed” into existence just in America.

Confusion. These denominations and sects. Devoted to, I will presume, the ONE God. OK? But – if you notice, every other sect, and/or denomination, will point at every other sect and/or denomination, and say that those followers, that belong to every other sect and/or denomination are going to hell. Because God said so.

OK.

This Holy Bible. The Word Of God Himself. The Gospels. Literally leaves us all denominationally hanging. And thusly, scripturally directionless, with not one definitive passage, or verse(s) that would lead any of us to join the one “right” church (if there is one). So here we have Dude, 41,625 chances (and more) to go to hell. If we choose to congregate at “this church,” rather than “that church,” or “that church.” Or “that church.” Or “MY CHURCH” – because it’s the right one.

“The Lord” needs to do a conference call…

“Now I beseech you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you; but that ye be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment.”

1 Corinthians 1:10 KJV

Alright Cool. But at which church should or would this “perfect joining” take place? What denomination is scripturally appropriate to facilitate our being there appropriately? Denominationally? Specifically? “In the same mind and in the same judgment?” Especially when that translates to our righteous justice demand?

“Come on Paul. What’s the address?” Where? As a Reparationist – I see Christian denominationalism translating in many instances into ugly political divisionism. Positive Black American political momentums will sometimes die in churches.

And, the Bible is not time-specific at all – nor is it intended to be. Possibly. It is just chronologically open. For example, The New Testament gives us this:

“For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, not one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.”

Matthew 5:18 KJV

OK? How long will that “all be” take? The Bible says we are in the “Last Days.”

What day is that “last day” indicated in 2 Timothy 3:1-5 KJV? – “Hello?”

Not much room for interpretation either:

“Knowing this first, that no prophecy of Scripture is of any private interpretation.”

2 Peter 1:20 KJV

No “private interpretation” – huh?

So what is that pastor or priest talking about? Isn’t he “interpreting” in that pulpit? Giving HIS “take” on scripture? How HE feels? Dude, this verse means in plain English: “NO interpretation of the scripture. And if someone is doing it – hey, don’t fucking listen to him.” Right? All he is supposed to do, if anything, is to read any verse aloud, and shut the fuck up. I own twelve Bibles. I read them all to myself, and I keep my mouth shut (as far as interpreting anything). Why would I need to listen to him? A clergyman? Do you really need to go to church for that? Wasting time? Giving money? Listening to bullshit? Can you speak that to yourself?

Is the Bible “God’s Word” – or the pastors?

“The Sabbath” is another good example of what I mean by “unworkable and unreasonable.” How many Christians are out there that work on “The Sabbath,” and that know other Christians that work on “The Sabbath?” What about the restaurants many Christians go to after services? Well – according to the Bible, the penalty for the waiters and the cooks is death. That would be Numbers 15:32-36 KJV. Right? Are you flagging that waiter to take your donut order? Really Dude? According to the Bible, you are supposed to be executing that waiter – not giving him your order. That would be Exodus 31:15 KJV.

Aren’t You?

Well – Yeah Dude. The Holy Bible has no exceptions for restaurant personnel working on the Sabbath. It ain’t in there. How in the minds of Christians does it process that the people that work in the restaurants they go to after Sunday church services are somehow exempted from those Sabbath prohibitions and penalties?

So – where are these good Christians biblically? Huh? With them being the willing enablers of sin by patronizing these fine establishments. According to the Bible – “The Sabbath” is serious business. First established and made holy by God himself in Genesis 2:2-3 KJV, as part of the (first) Genesis creation narrative. And we read that “keeping the Sabbath” is the fourth commandment out of the ten dictated. Allegedly given to Moses on Mount Sinai in Deuteronomy 5:6-21 KJV.

“The Sabbath,” at least biblically, is something important. Something never, not to be messed with. That is Exodus 31:15 KJV. Remember – Jehovah, God commanded that a guy should be put to death, just for picking up sticks on this day. Numbers 15:32-36 KJV. Sticks equaling death? Damn. What a difference a stick can make.

And “Grace” doesn’t apply here.

On a more practical level, I don’t see why good wait staff would want to work in any restaurant that has a large percentage of Black Christians that loudly arrive after Sunday services. They don’t tip anyway – so why mess with that? No biblical exceptions for the football players in Sunday NFL games, or the folks that work at the power company (your lights on?). No Dude. Nope. Not even the folks at the gas station. How about the Fire Department? Dial 911!!! Voice mail kicks in: “Keep the Sabbath holy… If your house is on fire, please call us back on Monday morning. May God bless…” Would “The Sabbath” as authoritatively rendered in Exodus 20:8-11 KJV work for you in this instance? No Sunday overtime Man.

Stupid.

Then, to add to the confusion, as far as non-Christians outside of this – and them looking at the strong variances and denominational colors within the Christian landscape; the Christians themselves don’t seem to be in any agreement as to whether the actual “Sabbath” should be Sunday or Saturday. Present-day examples of “Saturday Sabbath-Keepers” specifically include: The Seventh-Day Adventists, The Seventh-Day Baptists, The Seventh-Day Evangelist Church, The Christ’s Assembly, The International Church Of God, and a whole bunch more. Along with all churches worldwide claiming biblical support for Sunday OR Saturday holy days. All churches authoritatively make this claim with the warning that doing sabbatistic devotionals on the wrong day is a hot ticket to hell. Is it?

Well – the Catholic Church, meeting at the “Council Of Laodicea” (363-364 AD), transferred “Sabbath” devotionals from Saturday to Sunday, with no divine consultation whatsoever. None. They didn’t ask God shit. Possibly, permission to make that switch wasn’t needed. The switch order came from Mr. Constantine. OK? I have always believed that Christianity is owned by white people anyway. And they can do whatever they want with it. That’s why white-assed Ku Klux Klan-type motherfuckers could blow up and burn down Black churches with impunity. No prosecution. No punishment. And ol’ Jesus did NOT stop shit.

Right?

We all know that God is white. “The Savior” Jesus is certainly white. I’m just going by the pictures. The Catholic priesthood has always claimed that they should have “authority” over motherfuckers: Maybe – they and the ruling powers should and do have “authority” over “God’s Word” as well? Who knows? But Christianity itself belongs entirely to white supremacy and niggers should understand that.

White Catholic priests certainly like having “authority” over little boy’s booty-holes (Oops!) – but hey Dude, that’s another discussion.

So. Every denomination, it looks like, seems to “stake-out” their own sweet day, according to their own taste preference of Saturday or Sunday. Is that what’s happening? I was thinking about throwing a wrench into all this by starting my own church and claiming that the real “Sabbath” is actually on Tuesday (I need money), and that God himself revealed this to me: “Right after eating a great bowl of Cocoa Puffs. A bright light appeared. And the Holy Spirit came upon me (get out of the gutter please) – and commanded me to establish this church!” Right?

I could preach this shit – and I know I would be able to get away with it.

Well, preachers do this stuff all the time.

Now, I had mostly kept my Atheism to myself (with the exception of immediate and extended family) for years. I did not open my mouth to the public about my position until immediately after 09/11/2001. That was when another “Party Of God” decided to make a strong political and religious statement by flying planes into buildings. Understand? A good friend (Seima Aoyama) was on American Airlines Flight 11. Blasted. Angry. Homicidal. Stop. I had never read a book written by any Atheist up till that time. I had my own good reasons for not believing. So I had no real need (so I thought) to seek other viewpoints. When I did start reading Atheist literature, one of the things that struck me – and still does, is the tremendous knowledge of the Bible that many Atheists possess.

Dude. I’m telling you, Atheists KNOW the fucking Bible. Not just direct and encyclopedically accurate knowledge of the literal text. But – Biblical History, Bible Criticism, Christian Apologetics, Biblical Exegesis, Free Will Theodicy, Aramaic Theory, New Testament Synoptics, Christian Ontology, Christian Epistemology, Divine Law Theonomy, Christian History, Christian Presuppositionalism, Christian Mythology, Effective Concordance Practice, Christian Hermeneutics, et cetera.

Most Atheists that I have read and interacted with seem to have a better grasp of the Bible and of the many diverse Christian doctrines, along with general Christian philosophy, doctrinal history, and theology than professional religionists or clergy. My personal observations reveal that: The greater the amount of clear, detailed knowledge one has about the Bible, the greater the likelihood that one may become Atheist, or may already be one. Yep. That is why I strongly believe – if I do believe anything. That 97% of full-time clergy (especially those with advanced degrees), professional apologists, and well-educated politicians are privately Atheist.

But those fuckers will never publicly admit the fact because of social, political, strategic, and economic reasons. A bunch of pragmatic wimps and liars.

Is the Pope still standing on that “infallibility” bullshit?

It is a solid fact that many people become Atheists as a result of going to college classes in theology or biblical studies – there are a LOT of those. People that have been formally educated in some of the world’s best divinity schools (like – Oxford, Princeton, Harvard, etc.), are presently some of the biggest and most passionate advocates for Atheism (like the late religion author Dr. Hector Avalos – Professor of Religious Studies at Iowa State University). Why do these sorts of people become hard non-believers? I think it is because Atheists truly care about whether their “operating system” is true or not. Is falsifiable or not. Is beneficial or not.

And the reason that YOU need to figure out whether your “operating system” is true or not is because as far as we know, we only have one lifetime. No one has proven otherwise. And there is a higher probability of that lifetime being a quality lifetime if we all at minimum have the clearest and most accurate understanding of reality to reference from. The Bible must be opened up to this type of evaluative scrutiny in fact – not in faith, because the Bible makes such strong, authoritative statements regarding reality. Dude – Christianity IS an “operating system.” OK?

Therefore, any scripture, religion, or life philosophy should and must be open to the closest examination. The hardest scrutiny. The most critical dismantlement of every single point presented. Evaluated in fact. Not in faith. That religion or life philosophy should be able to stand up to – and to then clearly remain operable at all levels under that kind of evaluative pressure. This established – before it should be adopted as a reference guide for your life. And that includes the Bible.

Does that make sense?

That research and scrutinization should always be done by and for YOU. That – “this is how I grew up” – OR – “that’s what my momma believed” – OR – “cuz that’s the tradition in my family” type bullshit. Those reasons ain’t nowhere near good enough to be “believing” anything. No Man. This is nothing but niggerized intellectual laziness. And motherfuckers allowing themselves to be trapped in the worlds of the “comfortable” and the “familiar.” We got these otherwise “smart” motherfuckers believing shit. “You Guys are fucking grown-assed men. OK?” Grown motherfuckers should not be “believing” anything. Can we stick the “Tooth Fairy” and “Santa Claus” in there too? Fuck that. How about some facts Man? How about an admission if you don’t know? Operative wisdom lies in understanding that truth, proof, and reason trumps tradition, hope, and faith every time.

Faith Equals Death. “Faith” is the excuse making move, when you insist on believing things that have no logical basis or evidence to back up the move.

Understand. This Bible makes bold claims and assertions about the nature of reality, the course of earth history, and the course of cosmic development. “The Book Of Revelation” for example, takes a predictive position on the actual “end of the world.” But it reads like the reflection of a crazy bitch on a bad acid trip – for example. This Bible trespasses, emptily, upon all areas that have been correctly explained over time through the scientific method. And clarified through historical, cultural, and archaeological research. Ongoing. Nothing verifiable Man. How the universe came about, how life developed, the causes of disease, and so forth.

History. What verifiable realities actually happened? The Bible in fact (not faith) comes up woefully short, fully eclipsed by scholarship, experiment, research, and verifiable experience. When it comes to clear explaining of anything historically, culturally, morally, or scientifically. Historically – it does not do any better than begat, begat, begat. And no dates. No Dates Anywhere. This is why the Bible has to be constantly be “defended,” in order to remain usable, because most assertions and claims put forth in that ancient book cannot be demonstrated. Atheists have rightly gone beyond “defending” anything. Fuck That. Think Dude. Evidence and reason are the only things that count with anything dealing with reality.

So Guys – everything, including “God’s Word” is open to question. Everything. Ask The Question: “Is a, or any claim observable, transferable, and testable? Or is it not? And if it’s not, why not motherfucker?” Same shit you’d ask a hoe. Right?

So Fellas. OK. Can any “defended” biblical explanation, for any stated phenomena, claim, revelation, or occurrence, be rendered here-on-the-ground touchable, logical, and coherent – without us at any point resorting to metaphysics, spirituality shit, or transcendence to complete that explanation? I don’t know of any. But we do have many good folks in our midst who claim as their anointing to “Defend The Word.”

Dudes. If any biblical assertion regarding this reality is truly true, that truth would only need to be stated, demonstrated, and explained – and NOT “defended.” Any “Truth,” if it is true, does not require “faith” nor “belief,” or “defense.” Truth – in itself, is its own defense. Only accused people, liars, bullshit, nonsense, and truth claims, asserted without evidence or corroboration have a need to be “defended.”

That’s what lawyers are for.

On that note – it is irritating as fuck to talk to most Christians about certain passages in their scripture, because they don’t know what the hell you are talking about: “That’s not in my Bible!!!” At that point – you have to grab THEIR Bible away from them, turn to the appropriate passage, cite it, watch the cognitive dissonance kick-in, and then allow yourself to be entertained with the apologetic dance they always do when they encounter something in the Bible that THEY recognize to be literally heinous, literally untrue, literally contradictory, or literally stupid. It is important to keep a straight face. Hold it till you get home.

I recognized those things in the Bible when I was a mere teenager, so I know that astute religionists and the clergy see those things also. And if any one of them says anything about those things to the contrary of what I am saying RIGHT HERE – know that you are looking at a lying motherfucker. The average, run-of-the-mill believer needs to read and see those things as well – so that believer may formulate a pure, un-assisted (being un-assisted is important), but informed judgment.

For instance, a critical read reveals that the Bible is horribly edited. For example; there are TWO creation stories, with TWO different versions (Oops!) of the order in which God created things (No. 1 – Genesis 1:1 through 2:3 AND = No. 2 – Genesis 2:4-24). Just so you CAN SEE what I am talking about. Here it is:

CREATION ACCOUNT NUMBER ONE

Genesis 1:25-27 KJV (Humans were created AFTER the animals):

“(25) And God made the beast of the earth after his kind, and cattle after theirs, and every thing that creepeth upon the earth after his kind: and God saw it was good.

(26) And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.

(27) So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he him; male and female created he them.”

Genesis 1:27 KJV (Man and woman were created at the SAME TIME):

“(27) So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he him; male and female created he them.”

CREATION ACCOUNT NUMBER TWO

Genesis 2:18-19 KJV (Humans were created BEFORE the animals):

“(18) And the Lord God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him.

(19) And out of the ground the Lord formed every beast of the field, and every fowl of the air; and brought them unto Adam to see what he would call them: and whatsoever Adam called every living creature, that was the name thereof.”

Genesis 2:18-22 KJV (A man [male] was created FIRST, then the ANIMALS, then the WOMAN [female] from the man’s RIB):

“(18) And the Lord God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him.

(19) And out of the ground the Lord formed every beast of the field, and every fowl of the air; and brought them unto Adam to see what he would call them: and whatsoever Adam called every living creature, that was the name thereof.

(20) And Adam gave names to all cattle, and to the fowl of the air, and to every beast of the field; but for Adam there was not found a help meet for him.

(21) And the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept; and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof;

(22) And the rib, which the Lord God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man.”

“Oh Shit – which one? Make up your mind Yahweh!!!”

I am citing these famous passages in this way so you Guys can clearly see that I am not bullshitting about this bullshit. A major editorial fuckup. Latter-day apologists try to interpretively clean up this mess when it is pointed out. Retorting to those that notice this scriptural wreck with an utterance that allegedly came from Jesus:

“But from the beginning of the creation God made them male and female.”

Mark 10:6 KJV

They use this “Christ-generated” marker to interpretively point your allegiance to the first creation account in Genesis 1:1-2:3 KJV. This is nothing but an outlier verse being authoritatively utilized as a strategic scriptural “workaround.” Looking close – this “statement” gives you no details, nor toeholds, nor directions to work with regarding clarifying this creation issue. Neither in nor out of context.

Nothing.

But Hey – I will say this: “The next time you good religious hustlers come out with a new scripture, or ‘revelation,’ or any such nonsense that you guys will claim was given to you (only) from ‘on high’ – please invest in some good editors, typists, and proofreaders, so that you may avoid these kinds of fuckups. You would not want any compositional, spelling, grammatical, or punctuation errors for folks to notice. That notice – unnecessarily raising doubts, skepticism, close examinations, second-guessing, fact-checking, background checking, and very inconvenient questions.”

Questions that might fuck up that hustle. You Know?

And then there is the problem of the tremendous inconsistencies of the “Four Gospels” in the New Testament: Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John. Between the four, the Gospels have got to be some of the worst reporting on a single story, about a single guy (Jesus) in the history of reporting anything. Understand Guys: If you had employees that botched a very important business report, and had fucked it up to the same exalted level of ineptitude that is reflected in the Gospels – you would not have just fired the bastards, you would also have those employees blacklisted from ever being employed in the same industry that you may be a part of, anywhere in the motherfucking world. As a matter of professional protection.

The Gospels are put together that badly.

And I am supposed to base my life on a fuckup? Ahh… No.

Compositional errors abound here, and many Gospel accounts are not in any useful way complementary between the four on important details. For example: My own studies as a teenager counted 57 separate and overlapping points that don’t totally square, or don’t square at all. Points that are here, but not there, and accounts that may be told of the same occurrence – but the telling(s) themselves are in themselves totally different stories. Or, the occurrence is missing entirely, and something else replaces it within the same time frame in another Gospel, or two.

Did y’all get that?

Matthew says there was an earthquake when Mary Magdalene and the other Mary(?) came to visit Jesus’ tomb in Matthew 28:1-10 KJV. How did Mark, Luke, and John miss that event in their disaggregated recounting(s)? I mean seriously Man. How in the fuck do you miss an earthquake? Three guys out of four?

The GOSPELS?

Look for yourself, the other three Gospels make no mention of this event at all. It is like all of this was independently made up and then thrown together. As a fact of scripture – each one of the four Gospels has a totally different resurrection story regarding the first visitors to Jesus’ tomb. We have four totally different accounts regarding the same, single, unique occurrence. NOPE. This is unacceptable. It is not like these particular books are separated or dispersed into different locations within the New Testament. Or, that they have no relation to or with each other. “Hell No Buddy!!!” These are the First Four books of the New Testament: Matthew – Mark – Luke – John. In that order, together, like a set.

These “Gospels” – supposedly, being the most important – the central part of the Bible for all Christians, should be the tightest, most profound, most timely, most usable, and most unimpeachable part(s) of scripture. But they are literally not!

There are also problems recounting Jesus’ genealogy; specifically laid-out by Luke and Matthew. But before we go into this – I want to point out that the fact that there is any “genealogy” regarding Jesus in the Bible, is just one example of the kind of confused reasoning that abounds throughout the Bible: How could Jesus, being “The Son Of God,” even have a “lineage?’ OK? Look Close: Having no “earthly” father, or genetically related “mother” on the one end – and him not “begetting” any children of his own on the other end. What possible “lineage” could Jesus have or produce? This is not an unreasonable question. Right motherfuckers?

OK.

According to some Bible scholars, Luke’s account (Luke 3:23-28 KJV), follows the lineage of Mary. Really? Now watch this: Wasn’t that booty supernaturally hijacked by the Holy Spirit for a minute? That’s what I heard. And the Bible itself makes absolutely no note at all of Jesus having any possible genetic connection to Mary.

This “Blessed – Immaculately Conceived Virgin.” Mary, basically functioned as a “total surrogate.” No egg was donated, no sperm was introduced. Watch This: That was a “spirit-injected” – THEN transitioning into “flesh” type operation. OK?

God just USED her ass.

Show me where she got paid.

Matthew 1:1-17 KJV follows the lineage of Joseph. How is this? We know that scripturally, Joseph didn’t get as much as a handjob. That’s some dry-assed shit. OK? Sounds like Joseph needs to make that appointment with Maury. Right?

We have the envelope: “In the case of Jesus Christ – Joseph – You Are Not The Father!” Right? So, I must ask: “For what purpose is an earth-sourced lineage’ in there?” We have always been taught that Jesus is “The Son Of God.” Is that correct? So with this earthly “lineage” piece in place, what does “Son Of God” mean?

What?

Anyway. Both Gospels sweetly begin, showing that Jesus was supernaturally implanted. Not sired by Joseph. Mary was done divinely by God himself (through the “Holy Spirit?!”). Now, I don’t wanna sound blasphemous to any zealots in here. Cool? But I’m sure that some ladies out there may feel that the holy idea of getting “done” by the Holy Spirit is pretty fucking hot… Then, after a sweaty, heavy, and eventful pregnancy, we have Jesus The Christ himself, “The Savior” – wet – and white – popping up and out of Mary’s sweet, immaculate, virgin (whoa)!!!

How can niggers believe this goofy shit?

“Here’s a towel Baby!!!”

Now Guys: The lists are consistent between Abraham and David – but after that, everything goes waaay off track. Biblical scholars for centuries have tried to explain why the lists are so different. Experts putting forth various hypotheses, and to this day have not come to any good theory-level consensus. Centuries! Past Abe and Dave, ain’t nothing there matching up nowhere. The Bible itself presents no logical distinctions, nor gives up any kind of explanations for these discrepancies. The output from Bible scholars for hundreds of years regarding this issue amount to guessing. But the latest formal scholarship now regards these genealogies as pure inventions. So – either way, us laymen don’t know what we’re looking at.

Right Here. The core teaching. The message of the “Good News.” The witness of the itinerant ministry of Jesus. The ultimate sacrifice of his flesh for the sake of mankind. And – the great promise of his future return after “The End Of Days” should have been solidly and accurately recounted Here. FINE… But! Instead of the Gospels being the most finely-tuned and organized example of revelatory literature on the planet (after all, it was “divinely-inspired” and motivated). We have a holy mishmash so haphazardly compiled and nonsensically messaged that it should raise serious doubts in the mind of any THINKING person about its historic accuracy, the veracity of any claims made, and most importantly, the existence of any divine influences in its creation.

Before I read the Gospels, I had already had doubts about Jesus’ divinity. “The Son Of God,” all that stuff. You know? At that point I did not have any doubts about Jesus’ possible existence. But after I thoroughly read, exhaustively analyzed, and reflected for a long time upon the Gospels – I came to this logical place:

Until someone comes my way with solid, accessible, and verifiable EVIDENCE; not referencing somebody’s strongly-held belief – EVIDENCE; not what someone may sincerely feel in their heart – EVIDENCE; not clergyfied bullshit – EVIDENCE; not apologetically slick exegeses – EVIDENCE; not passionate recitations of scripture passages – EVIDENCE; not unverifiable emotional appeals – EVIDENCE; not creative interpretational constructs – EVIDENCE. And until I get that EVIDENCE – I will remain solid in certainty that the biblically presented Jesus never existed.

OK?

Now. We won’t go into any detailed discussion tonight, regarding some of the stupid nonsense that allegedly came out of Jesus’ mouth during his “ministry.” Those will be subject matter(s) for future discussions. But for the moment, let’s put it this way: Some of the stuff he said – I would have crucified his ass too.

Understand this Guys: Just Think Now… There is a full, international Gospel sub-industry that spends its working time trying to reconcile (to fix) these four distinct accounts of Jesus’ birth, ministry, crucifixion, and resurrection into forms that are “digestible” and reasonably coherent to the believing public. And also, easily usable by clergy. There is a lot of creative energy being expended on this part of the Bible (along with problematic areas in the Old Testament). There are organizations, professional apologists, hundreds of books, articles, and thousands of internet pages addressing this single problem. One term used to describe this challenge is the “Synoptic Problem.” Check Google and Amazon for materials and websites that offer comprehensive and detailed scholarship regarding this.

Biblical scholars have been working their holy asses off to resolve this completely un-resolvable issue since the middle of the 18th Century. What is this – the fucking 21st? And they still haven’t been able to put this shit in sync? “Get the fuck…”

Ask yourself – Good Christian: “If ‘The Gospel’ was ‘divinely inspired by a Perfect God,’ then why would ‘The Word Of God’ need to be further researched – THEN – apologetically and hermeneutically processed to no end – and then for that ‘Word’ to necessarily be ‘fixed’ after that ‘divine inspiration’ – By Man?” OK…

The Gospels are an editorial mess. This is not good work.

As an aside – my grandmother belonged to what is called a “Full Gospel Church.” Now – there are lots of them in Black neighborhoods. As a kid, I actually thought (for real) that “Full Gospel” was probably something you graduated to. I never expressed anything regarding that. But I harbored the notion that there must be “Half Gospel,” and maybe “Quarter Gospel” churches in existence somewhere. Otherwise, why would it be necessary to mark a church as “Full Gospel” when the prime concentration of any church is supposed to be “The Gospels” anyway?

Still with me? Move on to Part Two.

  1. Next time I read a blog, I hope that it does not fail me as much as this particular one. I mean, I know it was my choice to read, however I actually believed you’d have something interesting to say. All I hear is a bunch of whining about something that you can fix if you weren’t too busy searching for attention.

  2. Watched TB Joshua Blog@wordpress.com THE WORD OF GOD IN OUR HEART
    Honestly, don’t understand why Black folk embrace the religion of their racial oppressors. That cop placed his knee on a cuffed black man till he died. Yes MLK and Malcolm X enfranchised colored from American Apartheid\\Jim Crow//, but black identity and culture took a tremendous hit. As a “cracker”, raised by my black Mamma maids…. Hell did not even know that beds did not make up themselves till i left home at about 16! As a boy, traveled to the other side of the tracks and played with the children of my black Mamma maids. Had black folk as roommates in College and Technical training schools. Once living on my own, had a black mechanic as a roommate and lived in a black dominated community in Dallas Texas.

    But for us Jew boy folk, t’shuvah for us means rejecting assimilation to the cultures and customs, theologies, and creeds of our Xtian oppressors. 75% of European Jewry exterminated in less than 4 years, this war crime did not happen simply because Nazis hated Jews. How black folk integrate into Cracker culture, and embrace the cracker religion of abomination truly shocks me. Xtianity rejects the revelation of the Torah @ Sinai together with the revelation of the Oral Torah logic system revealed 40 days after the sin of the Golden Calf @ Horev. The gold calf disaster has nothing to due with the metaphor of a golden calf! Such a טפש פשט – literal reading of the words – brain dead stupid.

    Honestly, why read Jewish ancient books deprived and removed from all Jewish culture, tradition, manners, and ways practiced by the folk who wrote those T’NaCH Books to begin with. All cracker blblical translations — totally suck eggs. For example: The first commandment of Sinai, you never received any instruction, and thus do not know what that commandment commands. If you did — You’d be pissed. LOL.

    Unlike you black folk, we Jews do not exist as a Race – despite the Nazi propaganda which condemned us for the crime of being an ‘inferior race’. Cracker theology for 2000+ years has sought to divorce that religion of abomination from the T’NaCH\Talmud/ faith of the Jewish people. My folk say, “May Gawd bless the Czar … by keeping him far away from us!” (Fiddler on the Roof). The Allies bomb the Bejesus out of Nazi Germany, but despite knowledge of the Death camps, both FDR and Churchill refused to bomb the rail-lines leading to the death camps! Poop Pius XII consented to the Nazi demand and agreed to send the Jewish community in Rome to the death camps. The 1963 Play: The Deputy condemned the Poop. Finally the Vatican has opened its archives and confirmed the guilt of that cracker priest.

    Adopting a stance of official neutrality, the Vatican refused to yield to Allied pressure to speak out against the Nazis. This same policy, the cracker Governments who represent the EU and Russia, they duplicate this long standing cracker behavior with their neutrality in all of Israel’s major wars. Had the Arabs won the wars of Independence, those sand nigger towel heads would have completed the Nazi genocide of European Jewry! To date Israel has fought two wars of National Independence and won both. The ’48 War, England armed the Arabs invading Armies. In the ’67 War, France condemned the Israeli victory and demanded the complete Jewish surrender to the Arabs, as expressed through UN Resolution 242. France judged itself worthy to write that US Resolution of disgrace … as if France won the 2nd European Civil War of the 20th Century!

    The entire history of that despicable cracker religion of abomination, it centers and spins around Power rather than Morality. The death count produced by the 30 Year War matches that of World War I. The 300 year Ghetto imprisonment of all Jews living in Western Europe caused a huge forced population transfer of Jewish refugee populations moving from West to Eastern European countries, primarily Poland and the Ukraine. The 30 year war (1618 – 1648) released an avalanche tsunami of barbaric racial hatred against Jewish refugee populations scattered across the Ukraine and Poland. No one knows the number of Jews violently murdered in the Khmelnytsky Pogroms, but most likely the slaughter compares to the Turkish genocide of the Armenians during WWI.

    Assimilation of my People to cracker cultures, customs, manners, and ways … it defines the Jewish k’vanna of doing t’shuvah. T’shuvah a totally and completely different concept from that which the abomination religion preaches touching repentance. T’shuvah, a 2 edged sword which requires a unique dedication to HaShem of the opposing Yatzirot within the heart of bnai brit Man. These opposing Yatzirot compare to the two poles of a battery. In Chinese culture, the Yin\Yang/ feminine energies of life,,, opposed by the Yang\masculine energies in life.

    Yiddishkeit refers to the Yatzirot as inclinations; the chosen Cohen nation spins around the central axis of tohor vs tumah middot. The religion of abomination knows nothing about this Central Axis of Jewish faith. Faith, viewed from a Jewish perspectives, it shares no common ground with belief systems which preach theology, doctrine, creeds, and dogmatism. The latter defines the religions (in all their thousands of branches) of abomination. T’NaCH (Divided into 3 parts: Torah, Prophets, and Holy Writings. This Canon, sealed by Ezra and the Men of the Great Assembly in the formative years of the 2nd Commonwealth. Ezra, perhaps 3 Centuries before the Gospel abomination, as the Nasi of the Great Sanhedrin, he sealed the T’NaCH Canon), has no connection, nor does it share any common ground with the Greek\Roman counterfeit religion of abomination.

    Over half of all Jews who lived in Judea died fighting the Romans in two vicious brutal wars. The religion of abomination totally ignores the context of this most bitter of conflicts. Not till 1948, some 2000+ years, did Jews reconquer our Homelands and end the terrible g’lut\exile which the Roman barbarians initiated with their total war victory over Judea. The new testament, has a known reputation, that it cherry picks T’NaCH prophetic verses, taken totally out of their surrounding sugia contexts. An act of propaganda distortions which defines the religion of abomination unto this very day!

    As the European crackers enslaved the black folk, they did this war crime after first doing the same with stateless Jewish refugee minority populations, scattered across Europe, whom the Romans originally sold off the cast out survivors of Judea, as war time captured slaves.

    Feudal Europe, an agricultural based economy. The racist crackers, headed by the religion of abomination, outlawed Jews from the trade of farming, lest they acquire Goyim slaves! Not till the Industrial Revolution did the time arrive that agricultural based economies could expunge slave labor. Have you ever picked seeds out of a boll of cotton? Without a cotton gin, this takes a lot of labor. Pre-Industrial revolution produced wealth through agriculture. Agriculture lacking industrial equipment, highly labor intensive. This farming requires a huge amount of man-power. The Industrial Revolution would cause a huge population transfer of people moving from rural villages, close to the farm work, unto Cities in search of Industrial jobs.

    The damned Yankees of the North, to put slavery in America in perspective, embraced the Industrial Revolution. The Confederate States of the South, where cotton ruled as King, (Southern strain of long stand cotton, English textile Industries absolutely depended upon. Something like a heroin addict. Not till 1864 did the British, in Egypt, develop a similar strain of long stand cotton!), this agricultural based economy depended upon slave labor. But black folk in Northern states hardly lived their lives as enfranchised equals to the racist crackers.

    The crackers, they smell different than black folk. Human body odor does not make a person good or evil, just different the one from the other. Still it shocks me that the colored embrace the religion of abomination as their own. A cracker JeZeus … how utterly revolting.

    So by now, its obvious from this introduction that this Jew-boy holds a tremendous grudge against the cracker religion of abomination. The bane of my life, my struggle to do t’shuvah and uproot my assimilation unto western culture, customs, core values, manners etc. When I began the Aliyah process by moving to Israel. Remember many assimilated Yidden asking me: “Why I wanted to move there?”. Beginning with my family … all of which intermarried with crackers. The disaster of Jewish assimilation in the US and Europe, it surpassed the assimilation rates which prevailed prior to the Shoah!

    Avodah zarah\perverted worship/, the 2nd Commandment of the Written Torah Sinai revelation, Moshe the prophet defined this commandment with his commentary commandment, the 611 Torah commandments. These secondary source commandments, they serve to define the opening first two Primary source Commandments revealed in the Sinai revelation. (Clearly the 10 Commandment narishkeit\Yiddish for non sense/ plays no part in how the rabbis of the Talmud understood the language of the Written Torah. Torah like the Talmud – both highly edited. Torah commands mussar; the משל 10 commandments of Sinai compares to the 10 נמשל plague whereby HaShem judged the hearts of the Gods of Egypt, Par’o, and all Egypt). Moshe commanded a simple commandment: After the ways of Egypt and Canaan, do not follow. This commandment defines the k’vanna\roughly translated as: the mussar rebuke/of the revelation of the 2nd Commandment of Sinai. The bane of my existence on this earth, my failure to make t’shuvah upon my assimilation, wherein i have embraced the cultures and customs of Western societies as my own. Again t’shuvah shares no common ground with the religion of abomination, and its theology of repentance for sin.

    Following the European ‘Final Solution’ of my people, utterly abhor and detest Europe together with its ‘White Man’s Burden’ (Kipling). Europe sports no superior Race. Yet European imperialism has a strong need to rule over “the primitives inferiors of Africa”. The atrocities in the Congo by Belgian King Leopold II; the genocide in Namibia of the Herero and Namaqua peoples by the pre-WWI German 2nd Empire; the vile invasion of Ethiopia by the Italians, the French economic slavery in the Sahelzone; the British slaughter and establishment of concentration camps during the Boer War; these war crimes against humanity, every bit compare to the American crackers slaughter of the native Indian populations. The religion of abomination has embraced, it has never denounced this cracker imperialism.

    Needless to say, as an Israeli, totally oppose the EU attempt to impose their dictate demands that it has some “mandate” to determine the Israeli international borders. The EU, Russian, UN war mongers, they seek to divide the Jewish Capital like the cracker Allies divided Berlin after WWII! Like they made late 19th Century China into ‘spheres of Influence’, so too they seek to do with all countries across the Middle East. The vile Cheney\Bush invasion of Iraq, Afghanistan; the criminal Obamo destruction of Libya – the blood has yet to dry from these illegal invasions.

    The MSM propaganda which seeks to make Israel into a pariah Apartheid nation, this vile rhetoric propaganda which appeals to cracker emotional mob arousal & masturbation, it reminds me of KKK lynching parties and the blood libel slanders which resulted in destructive Pogroms against Jewish communities across Europe! A leopard cannot and does not change its spots.

    The EU, Russian, together with their UN Ventriloquist Doll Dummy, their continuous shrill condemnation of the tiny Jewish state; their attempt to divide this small country into 2 hostile camps in the name of Peace … Fools shalom stands upon the foundation of trust; this verb most definitely not a noun; like as employed by Lennon’s anti-Vietnam war song – “All We are Saying is Give Peace a Chance”. Idiots, a man only cuts an oath shalom brit alliance with partners – to whom he shares a deep profound trust. A Jew never invites an enemy to break bread while sitting at the Shabbos table. The cracker civilizations of Europe, they have no moral mandate following the Shoah, and Israeli National Independence in 1948 and repeated again in 1967. These imperialist cracker monsters – they do not determine the borders of the Jewish State nor the Capital City of Israel. Stateless Jewish refugee populations, the European Capital rejoiced in inflicting and imposing cruel inhuman torture and oppression for 2000+ years. But now that the Title of refugee now sticks to Arab stateless refugee populations, suddenly Europe has become all morally indignant & righteous – NUTS!

    With this introduction, (Always admired nigger Jim in Mark Twain’s Adventures of Huckleberry Finn. Nigger Jim understood that King Shlomo – a down right idiot. King David accepted the mussar of the prophet Natan. The Book of Kings opens with Natan saving the life of Shlomo and his mother. Yet the young king Shlomo chose to ignore the prophetic mussar by which Natan denounced construction of a Temple, as a tumah\pollution of the Last Will & Testament of Moshe the prophet, before he passed from this world. Torah faith stands upon: Justice Justice Pursue; Moshe, his last mitzva on this earth, {Torah commandments apply to all generation of bnai brit Israel as an eternal inheritance; prophetic mitzvot by stark contrast they only apply to the current living generations of bnai brit Israel. The revelation of the Torah @ Sinai, stands upon the k’vanna of serving as the Written Constitution of the Republic. All other T’NaCH prophets command mussar mitzvot.}, the mitzva to build and establish the small Sanhedrin lateral common law Courts!

    Lateral common law courts exist as the opposing pole of the משל “battery” of vertical common law courtrooms. The latter, the State pays the salary, it reins the power of the paycheck over the Judges, Prosecutors, and Police! Lateral common law courts, no judicial authority nor prosecutor, receives any salary from the State. Not till the vile abuses of the British Star Courts did the American revolutionaries revolt against that corrupt vertical courtroom corruption, and attempt a reform – a lateral jury system. The vertical Italian courts supported the religion of abomination, its criminal abduction of Jewish children and baptizing these captured prisoners against their Will of their parents, early in the 20th Century. No vertical European court ever tried the Church for war crimes committed against humanity; no justice for the Jews or the Roma minorities, which the crackers slander as either: Christ Killers or Werewolves – respectively.

    Let’s learn. The Jewish T’NaCH – has 3 Parts. The Torah – the יסוד of all prophesy. The latter term defined as Mussar. The Prophets – whose mussar mitzvot, they serve to define the k’vanna of the Torah commandments. (Torah commandments, clearly not LAW. Law comes from judicial courtroom rulings which establish the halachah, as expressed within the language of the Talmud.) As mentioned above, Torah commandments apply to both the living and dead among the bnai brit chosen Cohen nation. Mitzvot by stark contrast, they apply only to the living and not to the dead among bnai brit Israel.

    A critically important distinction of understanding. Furthermore, observance of Torah commandments, possible in the oath sworn lands or in g’lut. Observance of Torah prophetic mitzvot, only within the borders of the oath sworn lands of the brit). And Holy Writings. The Books of the Prophets stand upon the kabbalah masoret of the 13 tohor middot which define the revelation of the Oral Torah @ Horev. (שמות לד:ו,ז); the Books of Holy Writings stand upon the יסוד kabbalah of the 13 Middot taught by Rabbi Yishmael, the middot of logic taught Rabbi Akiva, and the middot of logic taught by Rabbi Yose HaGelili. The latter middot of logic, they serve to define the former Torah tohor middot of logic. Rabbi Akiva, his פרדס Divine Chariot mysticism, it defines the revelation of the Oral Torah to Moshe @ Horev 40 days after the sin of the golden calf. The Torah commands mussar instruction through משל\\נמשל. The golden calf metaphor – only a משל. The נמשל דיוק\\interpretive logical inference which inverts the משל metaphor, Aaron translated the Name revealed in the First commandment @ Sinai unto the word אלהים.

    The religion of abomination perverts רוח הקןדש\\Holy Spirit//into its Trinity avoda zarah. The 13 tohor (Shall not even attempt to translate this abstract and difficult term into an English translation. The KJV did this travesty with its Clean vs. Unclean narishkeit), middot — they define the meaning of the term רוח הקודש… the revelation of the Oral Torah logic format revealed @ Horev following the sin of the golden calf.

    Aaron translated the Spirit of the Name, first revealed in the opening commandment @ Sinai unto a word אלהים. All the bibles of the religion of abomination, beginning with the opening verse of the Book of John, they duplicate this exact error of avodah zarah. Hence throughout history the religion of abomination as rejected the revelation of the Torah @ Sinai, and therefore worshiped other Gods — the 2nd Commandment of the revelation of the Torah @ Sinai. רוח הקןדש … these tohor Spirits – not a word or words can pronounce, even less so describe. Hence the negative mitzva which forbids on pain of כרת, cutting a person off from the inheritance of the brit cut between the pieces (נמשל דיוק the brit cut between the opposing Yatzirot within the heart of bnai brit man, wherein HaShem swears an oath unto childless Avram that his future born chosen Cohen seed would compare to the number of the stars shining in the Heavens!), not to pronounce the Name of HaShem according to the order of its’ Letters. Like as in YHVH, Yahweh, Jehovah, Lord, Father, Allah etc.

    The Holy Writings, they serve as the Primary commentary upon the Books of the Prophets. Your blog equates the new testament forgery abomination with the authority of the sealed Canon of the T’NaCH. A mitzvah done by Ezra and the Men of the Great Assembly centuries prior to the writings of the counterfeit Roman messiah dolled up into Jewish garments. The prophetic Book of Shmuel\Samuel stands upon the יסוד of the Torah. The religion of abomination never once, not in 2000+ years has ever inquired, upon what Torah commandment did the Prophet Shmuel stand his mitzva of Moshiach upon? A crucial error. The prophet Moshe commanded the comandment: not to add or subtract from the Torah commandments.

    Moshe the greatest of all T’NaCH prophets. The later prophetic commandment whereby Shmuel first anointed Shaul of the Tribe of Binyamin, and thereafter David of the Tribe of Yechuda (Yechudim translated as Jews), which Torah commandment serves as the יסוד of this later prophetic mitzva?! This simple question refutes the new testament counterfeit Roman forgery; its hostile attempt to undermine Jewish culture and tradition ie Old and New Testament narishkeit. Recall that the new testament abomination came at the height of the Jewish wars fought against Roman imperialism in the Middle East. Rome introduced propaganda during those wars, aimed to undermine and destroy the ‘ethical containment force’ which shapes and contains Jewish culture and tradition.

    The Holy Writings, they serve as commentaries to the earlier Prophetic Books which make up the T’NaCH. The religion of abomination completely perverted the Order of the T’NaCH. Note the absurd attempt to equate Apocrypha Books, all written after Ezra and the Men of the Great Assembly had sealed the T’NaCH canon as closed, but also the new testament books of avoda zarah – as having equal authority or as in the New Testament – supplanted the Old Testament! The Order of the T’NaCH, organized into sugiot\sub chapters/ this too church biblical translations totally expunged and up-rooted; replaced with chapters and verse – totally foreign and alien to the Hebrew T’NaCH literature.

    Shall not “soil” myself by addressing the new testament tumah abomination (tumah learns from dead bodies) verses which your blog brings. The new testament abomination, it cherry picks p’suking\verses; it takes these p’sukim totally out of their surrounding sugia containment contexts! 1 Chronicles 28:9, this cherry picked verse, contained within the sugia of דברי הימים א כח:א-י. To build my House and Courts … what משל\\נמשל דיוקים learns from this statement? King Shlomo he worshiped avodah zarah and caused the Davidic Kingdom to collapse into Civil War.

    The נמשל דיוק does not flatter king Shlomo, the ‘wisest of all men’. Nigger Jim correctly understood, king Shlomo – an utter and complete fool. King Shlomo assimilated. He embraced the avodah zarah practiced by the Goyim — who rejected and refused the revelation @Sinai and Horev. Goyim “just adore their pent house view” (Green Acres), they build Temples and huge Cathedrals, whereby their priests worship avodah zarah unto strange Gods! Torah faith stands upon this precise יסוד: Justice Justice Pursue. King David understood the mussar commandment of the prophet Natan, this “man of battles and bloodshed”, he owned the responsibility to establish the lateral Sanhedrin common law Federal Court system. Justice, defined as the restoration of damages, inflicted either by accident or intention, to the injured bnai brit allied people, through the judicial intervention, by Torah mandated courts. King Shlomo rejected the Written Torah as the Constitution of the Tribes of the Republic. This decision placed him on par with all the רשעים kings of Israel.

    Question? Do the courts have a Torah mandate to search the hearts of both the accused and the damaged. Korban\sacrifices do nothing in matters of searching the k’vanna concealed within the heart of Man. Why then did the small Sanhedrin courts in each of the 6 Cities of Refugee have an altar wherein the Cohen nasi of the Court, that he would dedicate a korban upon that private altar, prior to the Court pronouncing sentence upon a person who fled to a City of Refuge?

    As mentioned above: the din of כרת, all descendants of the chosen Cohen people, we treat this din with great respect. For a Cohen to dedicate a burnt offering upon an altar, while in a state of tumah, this horrible transgression, it carries the din of כרת. Therefore the head of all the small Sanhedrin courts, a Cohen from the house of Aaron in all the 6 cities of refuge. This Cohen Nasi of the small Sanhedrin court, he made a public dedication of a burn offering, to testify that he and all the Justices of the court, they obeyed the mitzva to pursue justice in a tohor state, when they tried the person who fled to their City of Refuge, after having committed the crime of murder. Murder a Capital Crime. If convicted of intentional murder, the din of the Court – one of the 4 types of death penalties, usually either fire or strangulation. Fire, similar to strangulation, in that the criminal strangulated so that he opens his mouth in order to breath, and hot lead poured down his throat. Stoning or beheading limited to more severe crimes such as avodah zarah.

    This Holy Writings commentary upon the NaCH prophets, perhaps it learns and interprets based upon the sugia of ירמיה יז:ז-י. A Dayan\שופט has yet another title – אלהים. The exact term whereby Aaron erred and translated the Name of HaShem! This Divine Name, the name wherein according unto kabbalah, a Yid dedicates the face of his soul on Yom Kippur unto HaShem. All generations for ever stand under the shadow of the golden calf avodah zarah. Yom Kippur seals the din whether we have succeeded or failed to live t’shuvah on the din of our assimilation to non bnai brit cultures customs core beliefs etc.

    Capital Crimes trials require no less than two kosher witnesses. Common law stands upon the יסוד of precedents. The much later Talmudic common law system, it follows the much earlier T’NaCH common law system. The latter compares sugiot to other sugiot precedents. The “Style” developed by the sages of the Gemara: to judge the value of precedents brought before the Court, through the discipline of difficulty\\answer. Shall open by surrounding our Case bringing a slightly distant precedents, and there after compare it to a more precise precedent. יהושע ה:ב-ח.

    The oath brit sworn at Gilgal, followed the brit melah of the survivors of the Wilderness generation. HaShem judged the hearts of that generation as fit to conquer the oath sworn lands. Whereas the hearts of the generation which accepted the Torah @ Sinai, that generation accepted the Torah with their Yatzir Ha’Rah and not their Yatzir Ha’Tov. This Ying\\Yang bi-polar judgement within the heart, it learns from the prophesy which told Rivka that 2 nations struggled for dominance within her womb. Tefillah – a duty of the heart. The evening kre’a shma learns from Sinai wherein Israel accepted the Written Torah with our Yatzir Ha’Rah. The morning kre’a shma learns from Horev wherein Israel accepted the Oral Torah with our Yatzir Ha’Tov. The t’shuva dedication, the k’vanna of tefillah, night and day different from one another.

    In War, soldiers aim their artillery fire, first to strike before the enemy target. Then they over shoot the enemy target. Then they blast the evil S.O.B.’s – they fire for effect. Shall do likewise: יהושע י:יב-יד The oath brit sworn at Gilgal,,, just as HaShem fought the Gods of Egypt, so too HaShem would fight the Gods of Canaan. Moshe called upon the 10 plagues and the splitting of the Sea of Reeds. Yehoshua called the Sun to remain in the sky, permitting Israel to totally crush and destroy the enemy. Just as slaves could never thumb their noses at Par’o and live, so too Israel could not war upon Giants – and live. Just as HaShem judged the Gods of Egypt, and Israel thumbed their noses at Par’o. In like manner HaShem judged the Gods of Canaan, and Israel prevailed over Giants. Giants whose size and power had melted the hearts of the spies in the days of Moshe the prophet!

    Fire for effect:BOOM: שופטים ז:ב-ו Prior to the great battle and victory by Gid’on over the huge army of Midyan, HaShem judged the ‘warrior spirit’ within all of Gid’on soldiers. HaShem judged 300 men whereby they would make an eternal קידוש השם\\sanctification of the Name. The mussar k’vanna, it seems quite clear that the Book דברי הימים serves as a commentary to the Books of the Prophets, that HaShem judges the heart of Man. Specifically HaShem judges between the Tohor or Tumah Yatzirot, to determine which of the two has dominance within the bnai brit heart — of the Judges of the Court.

    A person flees to one of the six Cities of Refuge and pleads that he killed a man with his Yatzir Ha’Tov and not with his Yatzir Ha’Rah. The אלהים\\שופטים of the small Sanhedrin lateral common law courtrooms, they can either judge that man with their Yatzir Ha’Tov or with their Yatzir Ha’Rah. Hence prior to carrying out the sentence of the Court, the Cohen Nasi of the Court dedicates a korban olah\burnt offering, upon the altar. This korban olah, dedicated to publicly testify – through its cloud of smoke unto the heavens – that the Justices of the Court neither received nor took any bribe; that they judged the accused with their Yatzir Ha’Tov & not with their Yatzir Ha’Rah.

    Who stands in Judgment before HaShem? The accused or the Judges who try the accused? The mussar of the prophets answers and declares: the Judges who hear and rule upon any Capital Crimes trial, they stand before HaShem, and HaShem judges their hearts; HaShem weighs the question: which Yatzir exerts dominance within the hearts of these Judges? Herein defines how the Torah creates Man in the image of HaShem.
