If you are a Christian, please do not dismiss the points and questions I have brought up on this website without
looking into them. Please, do not choose to hold onto any negative assumptions or misconceptions about Torah (Judaism)
or Israel and the Jewish People because of "blind faith" alone or because of a stubborn heart. To do so is NOT Biblical.
Going against Biblical teaching is contrary to Christianity. Prove your beliefs to yourself. Test them. If
the points I have made on this website are incorrect, then you will be able to find reasonable answers to them. Contrary to
popular belief, the 'New Testament' itself teaches that Christians should prove and test things; It does not teach Christians
to simply believe and accept based on blind 'faith' alone:
"Prove all things; hold fast that which is good." KJV 1 Thessalonians 5:21;
"..prove what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect." NASB Romans
"..and his own work let each one prove, and then in regard to himself
alone the glorying he shall have," YLT Galatians 6:4;
"..test the spirits, whether they are of God," NKJV 1 John 4:1;
"..prove yourselves to be blameless and innocent, children of God above reproach.." NASB
"...prove yourselves doers of the Word, and not merely hearers who delude themselves." NASB
"Always be ready to give an answer to anyone who asks you to give reason
for the hope that is in you.." 1 Peter 3:15.
A woman once told me, "I believe in Christ not because it's logical. I believe purely on faith." I then asked
her, "If you believe only because of faith, and not because it's logical, then what would keep you from being a Muslim if
you were raised as a faithful Muslim in a Muslim country?" She answered, "Because it doesn't make sense." I replied, "Exactly.
It wouldn't make sense. It wouldn't be logical." You see! This same woman admits that it is unacceptable for a Muslim
to remain a Muslim based purely on faith, because Islam doesn't make sense to her. Islam is illogical to her.
Yet, if she were to have faith in Islam the same way she has faith in Christianity, she would never realize that Islam is
wrong. And how did she admit that she would be able to realize that Islam is wrong? She said it herself, "Because it doesn't
make sense." A faith full of contradiction is not very faithful. True faith is faithful to consistency. A belief's weakness
is its contradiction. A belief's strength is its solidity [consistency/stability].
Don't be afraid to use your brain to think rationally, objectively, logically, and reasonably.
These things will NOT lead you to atheism or agnosticism. With no Absolute Ruler of right and wrong / truth and
falsehood, [which is G-d], the atheist has no place at which to begin his "logical reasoning." Although certainly
we can make mistakes in our thinking, this is no reason to give up trying to be logical. The key is to continuously test your own reasoning with humility. Be willing to
correct yourself and to receive correction. "As iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another;" - Proverbs 27:17.
A person can not be truly objective and rational without being humble. No matter the level of intelligence, a humble person will always strive for the most reasonable path.
The Bible states:
"Understanding is a wellspring of life to him who has it. But the correction of fools is
folly." - NKJV Proverbs 16:22
In Proverbs chapter 8 Wisdom is ALLIGORICALLY [see Proverbs 1:1-6 ] personified.
In verses 35 through 36 Wisdom states, "For whoever finds me finds life, and obtains grace from the L-RD; But he
who is missing me wrongs his own soul; All who hate me love death.”
"There is no wisdom, no understanding, and no counsel against the L-RD." - Proverbs 21:30
