Noahide Law and the New World Order

Rabbi Yitzhak Ginsburg says he knows in the near future the Land of Israel
is about to expand. "It is our duty to force all mankind to accept the seven
Noahide laws, and if not — they will be killed."

 [PERSIANS-JEWS-FLIES] Noahide Code is Legal Fiction Built on Fable


Chris Jones whined:

<<<The principle of "shituf" allows Christians and Buddhists to have allegiances to other deities as long as they acknowledge the one true God>>>

This Christian nation did not go off fighting gooks in Korea and Vietnam only to have you wiberals here back home giving gooks some kind of "equality" before God in this putative CHRISTIAN nation which whittles away a OUR freedom of religion.  Furthermore, this new "law" most likely refers to kikes, not gooks, which is even MORE reason for not having these ridiculous "Noahide Laws".


He wrote:

<<<Noahides are not against eating the flesh of animals; they are against unnecessary cruelty to animals.>>>

There are TEN of God's Commandments which deal with God's relationship with His holy people, and only seven "Noahide Laws", one of which gives animals more rights than God's holy people.  This leaves only six "Noahide Laws" to deal with people, but INSTEAD these "laws" required that we "establish courts of justice" which as we now know consists of despicable JEWS who HATE Christians being our new brand of "justice".


On TOP of that, consider what you believe to be "against unnecessary cruelty to animals":

<<<not to eat flesh cut from a living animal>>>

I could be in accord with such a law if I first KILLED my neighbor's cat, cooked on a wok, and served it to my neighbor who had owned the cat.  Such a "law" would prohibit me only from making hamburgers out of a cow while it's still alive (and it's been so long since I did that that I can't even remember what it tasted like).



It's just one more reason of MANY that jews have NO PLACE in this putative Christian nation (and why our Founding Forefathers didn't even allow jews to be buried here, and why they STILL should not be). wrote:

What a paranoid crock of sh***.

There were so many falsehoods about Noahides in that I don't know where to begin.
Noahides are not against eating the flesh of animals; they are against unnecessary cruelty to animals.
The principle of "shituf" allows Christians and Buddhists to have allegiances to other deities as long as they acknowledge the one true God.
And so on with many more of his allegations.
Shame on you for printing this garbage.

I had no idea I was writing to a hateful rabid bigot.   Had I known that, I never would have written. 
It is a bad joke for you and people like you to be using the name "Christian".   Do not bother writing to me anymore; I will delete without reading.

Nobody cares what you "think", do you know that?

Just because you "think" someone is a "hateful rabid bigot" because they told you that you are NOT going to remove one single Christian right from this putative Christian nation doesn't mean squat.  When we blow up a few million   more gooks or jews, THAT will maybe get the message across to you that you're lower than whale shi. on our scale.

It is YOU who is the "hateful rabid bigot" for merely suggesting that I give a gook or a jew more rights than a Christian.  THAT is truly HATEFUL, by definition.

the teaching of Christian principles are mistaken or traitorous.

                        SEPARATION OF CHURCH AND STATE
   By Charles A. Fuller, Jr. (July 1992)
   _'We find few historians who have been diligent enough in their search
   for truth; it is their common method to take on trust what they help
   distribute to the public; by which means a falsehood once received
   from a famed writer becomes traditional to posterity."_
   _John Dryden_
   _English Poet, 1631-1700_
   Here's another issue that liberals and the media are so incredibly
   ignorant about, I can only shake my head. Regardless of how you feel
   about this issue, let's work with some facts so that we can all better
   understand the historical path that got America to its current state
   of sickening political correctness and how it relates to "separation
   of church and state." The following piece is as factual representation
   of this subject matter as I have found except for David Barton's
   superb film, _America's Godly Heritage_.
   _Supreme Court Ignores Founding Fathers on Prayer Issue_
   The U.S. Supreme Court has issued another decision undermining the
   U.S. Constitution and moral foundations of America. The recent court
   decision banning prayer at school graduation ceremonies ignores the
   intent of the Founding Fathers who clearly believed that religion must
   not be separated from civil government ln its latest decision, the
   high court ruled against prayer by a rabbi at Providence, R.I., junior
   high graduation. The 5-4 ruling continues the court's enforcement of
   an original doctrine created by the court in a 1947 decision when it
   falsified the intent of the First Amendment by only quoting part of
   Thomas Jefferson's views on the subject The phrase "separation of
   church and state" does not appear in the Constitution, but originated
   in an 1802 letter by Thomas Jefferson to the Danbury (Connecticut)
   Baptist Association regarding their fears that the Congregationalists
   would use the power of government to gain a favored position.
   _Jefferson Wanted Christian Government_
   The part of Jefferson's statement quoted by the high court was that
   "The First Amendment has erected a wall of separation between church
   and state...._" However, the court chose to ignore the remainder of
   Jefferson's comment which continues: "but that wall is a
   one-directional wall. It keeps the government from running the church
   but makes sure that Christian principles will always stay in
   government."_ [Editorial note: According to America's God and Country
   Encyclopedia of Quotations, "Jefferson borrowed phraseology from the
   famous Baptist minister Roger Williams who said, '...the hedge or wall
   of separation between the garden of the church and the wilderness of
   the world, God hath broke down the wall...."'
   Jefferson went on to say: 'Believing with you that religion is a
   matter which lies solely between man and his God, that he owes account
   to none other for faith or his worship, that the legislative powers of
   government reach actions only, and not opinions, I contemplate with
   solemn reverence that act of the whole American people which declared
   that their legislature should "make no law respecting an establishment
   of religion or prohibiting the free exercise thereof," thus building a
   wall of separation between Church and State.'
   This _personal letter_ reassured the Baptists that the government's
   hands were tied from interfering with, or in any way controlling, the
   affairs and decisions of the churches in America. Thomas Jefferson did
   not sign the Constitution, nor was he present at the Constitutional
   Convention of 1787. Neither was he present when the First Amendment
   and religious freedom were debated in the first session of Congress in
   1789, as he was out of the country in France as a U.S. Minister. Due
   to his not being present to hear all the comments of the Founding
   Fathers regarding the First Amendment, Thomas Jefferson had to rely on
   second-hand information to learn what had transpired in that first
   session of Congress. This personal letter to the Danbury Baptists was
   written 13 years after the First Amendment. End of editorial note.]
   Back to Mr. Fuller's article: The First Amendment simply reads:
   "Congress hall make no law respecting the establishment of religion or
   prohibiting the free exercise thereof." The amendment came about
   because Congress did not want one Christian denomination dictating to
   the country as had occurred in England and in Europe. It was never
   intended as a weapon for the Supreme Court to sweep religion out of
   government and education. The decision in 1947 embracing "separation
   of church and state" was made by court justices influenced by the
   doctrines of William James, the father of modern psychology. James
   strongly opposed religious principles in both government and education
   and sought a complete separation.
   _Repeating Lies_
   James, like Adolph Hitler,_ recognized the power of repetition in
   getting people to believe lies_. _He said, "There's nothing so absurd
   that if you repeat it often enough, people will believe it."
   Similarly, the Supreme Court and the mass media have used that
   technique so successfully that they have indoctrinated the bulk of the
   American people into believing the Constitution and the Founding
   Fathers favored removal of religion from both government and
   education_. Nothing could be farther from the truth, and in fact, one
   dissenting Supreme Court justice wrote in 1958 that _"if this court
   doesn't stop talking about separation of church and state, someone's
   going to think it's part of the Constitution."_
   [Editorial note: Again, let me quote Thomas Jefferson, _six years_
   after his letter to the Danbury Baptists. Letter to Samuel Miller,
   January 23, 1808: "I consider the government of the United States as
   interdicted by the Constitution from intermeddling with religious
   institutions, their doctrines, discipline, or exercises. This results
   not only from the provision of law that shall be made respecting the
   establishment or free exercise of religion, but from that also which
   reserves to the states the powers not delegated to the U S government
   [10th Amendment]. Certainly no power to prescribe any religious
   exercise, or to assume authority in religious discipline, has been
   delegated to the general government. It must then rest with the states
   as far as it can be in any human authority."
   Remember, the first ten amendments to the Constitution of the United
   States were ratified on December 15, 1791. The above letter was
   written seventeen years after the ratification of the first amendment
   - which Jefferson was not a part of - a letter which only defines
   Jefferson's personal opinion. End of comment] Back to Mr. Fuller's
   article : _James Madison, the Founding Father most responsible for the
   Constitution, said the whole future of America's civilization is not
   taken on the power of government but rather "upon the capacity of each
   and every one of us to govern ourselves according to the 10
   Commandments of God."_ John Quincy Adams said, "The highest glory of
   the American Revolution was this: That it connected in one dissoluble
   bond the principles of Christianity with the principles of civil
   John Jay, the First Chief Justice of the U. S. Supreme Court, and a
   major framer of the Constitution said, _"Providence has given to our
   people the choice of their rulers, and it is the duty as well as the
   privilege and interest of our Christian nation to select and prefer
   Christians for their rulers."_
   _Textbook are Censored_
   George Washington's farewell address, considered the most important
   political speech ever given in America, _has been purged from most of
   today's school textbooks._ Why? Probably because Washington advocated
   a course of action considered by today's liberals as "isolationism" in
   warning that America should stay out of Europe's intrigues. But there
   is undoubtedly another reason why Washington's speech has vanished
   from the textbooks. America's first President said, _"Don't let anyone
   claim to be a true American. Don't let them claim the tribute of
   American patriotism if they ever attempt to remove religion from
   Benjamin Franklin wrote that_ "Whoever will introduce into public
   affairs the principles of Christianity will change the face of the
   world_." Patrick Henry said, _"It cannot be emphasized too strongly or
   too often that this great nation was founded not by religionists but
   by Christians. Not all religions, but on the gospel of Jesus Christ."_
   _Founded on Christianity_
   America is the only nation in history that was founded upon
   Christianity, which the colonies established by Christian sects who
   used biblical principles to establish self-government. indeed, if it
   hadn't been for the intellectual and spiritual leadership of the
   churches, the American Revolution never would have been fought.
   Cornwallis, during his surrender at Yorktown, acknowledged the
   overriding importance of America's churches in the Revolution, when he
   threatened that England would ultimately take back the colonies
   through subversion of the American churches.
   The authors of _The Christian History of the Constitution of the
   United States of America_, wrote that "In proportion as Americans let
   go of faith in the absolute power of God, they have accepted the
   belief in an all powerful State. This is true of peoples or nations,
   for their ideal of God determines the form of their civil, political,
   religious and social institutions. Communism and socialism are
   anti-God and anti-Christian; the battle against Communism and
   socialism never was, and is not now, just economic and political; it
   is religious."
   _Consequently, in order to destroy America and turn it into a
   socialist paradise, it is first necessary to destroy Christianity by
   eliminating the people's faith in God and replacing it with faith in
   government_. What better way to do this than to banish all references
   to God and Christianity in the public schools as the Supreme Court has
   done repeatedly? In 1962, our anti-American Supreme Court banned
   school prayer; in 1963 it outlawed Bible reading, and in 1980, it
   outlawed the posting of the Ten Commandments in schools where children
   could see them. The extreme danger which the absence of moral and
   religious instruction poses to a nation was well recognized by John
   Adams who wrote:
   "We have no government armed in power capable of contending with human
   passions unbridled by morality and religion. Our Constitution was made
   only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate for the
   government of any other." [Editorial note: On June 21, 1776, Adams
   also said, "Statesmen, my dear Sir, may plan and speculate for
   liberty, but it is religion and morality alone, which can establish
   the principles upon which freedom can securely stand. Only foundation
   of a free Constitution is pure and virtue, and if this cannot be
   inspired into our People in a greater Measure than they have it now,
   they may change their rulers and the forms of government, but they
   will not obtain a lasting liberty."]
   _Test Scores Crash_
   ln fact, since the 1962 and 1963 decisions banning school prayer and
   Bible reading, SAT scores declined in schools nationwide for 18
   consecutive years, an unprecedented catastrophe. The damage doesn't
   end with poor SAT scores. Since the early 1960's America soared to
   first pace in the western world in illiteracy, abortions, divorce,
   violent crime and drug use. What was the rabbi's prayer in Rhode
   Island that our illustrious Supreme Court felt compelled to strike
   down as a mortal threat to the nation? "We give thanks to you, Lord,
   for keeping us alive, sustaining us and allowing us to reach this
   happy occasion." What will the Supreme Court outlaw next? How about
   the Declaration of Independence? lt mentions God four times." End of
   I did not bring this subject up to force anyone to embrace
   Christianity._ But I believe that the architects of the New World
   Order have deliberately embarked upon a course of destroying the moral
   and religious fiber of this nation - and the attack upon Christianity
   will be rapidly stepped up in the immediate future._ Why? As a famous
   Communist by the name of Lenin, said: "Destroy the family, you destroy
   the country" and religion from the earliest records of the history of
   this nation, has been the spiritual bond between families. Only a fool
   can't see that since the '60's, the moral fabric of this country has
   been torn asunder. What is the one common denominator behind many of
   our social ills? Lack of belief in God and the Ten Commandments -
   remember, Thou shall not kill? Over the past 30 years, life has become
   very cheap in America. Why not have an abortion, throw a newborn in a
   garbage dumpster, 12-year olds blow each other away in the
   inner-cities, why not, my sister had an abortion, what's the
   difference? Remember Thou shall not steal? Heck, why not, man, the
   government steals from us and besides, I want that stereo in my
   neighbor's house and I ain't got no money man, so what the hell?
   Remember Thou shall not covet thy neighbors wife? Shoot, infidelity is
   a national pastime, I mean look at the President of the United States,
   while not inhaling his marijuana, he inhales another woman's perfume
   in the sack while Hillary is off on another feminist crusade. Remember
   thou shall not lie? Well, the President of the United States is the
   most prolific liar in history, my old man tells some good ones, what's
   the harm anyway? I mean, character doesn't matter, that's what the
   voters of America say. And people keep scratching their heads and
   wondering why America's moral foundation looks like the Murrah
   Building after the bombing in OKC?
   _America is a Christian nation and it was founded on Christian
   doctrine. To attempt to say otherwise is to deny the very existence of
   our Republic and history._ Let me ask liberals and politicians a
   question: What if 100,000 Catholics went to Israel and demanded that
   Israel become a Christian country? What if 100,000 Baptists went to
   Iran and demanded that Iran become a Christian nation? What would
   happen if 100,000 Presbyterians or Methodists went to Communist China
   and demanded that China become a Christian nation? The answer to these
   questions is without a doubt,_ NO, NO, and NO. So, why then are the
   liberals, the Muslims, the Buddhists, the Jews and atheists demanding
   in the loudest of voices that America can no longer be a Christian
   nation, that we should be forced to deny our very history and heritage
   just to suit those who come to America to seek religious and personal
   Does this mean that Americans who wish to worship as Muslims, Jews,
   Mormans or Buddhists can't do so? Of course not. This is one of the
   most important aspects of the First Amendment - that you can worship
   the religion of your choice. _But I am sick and tired and fed up with
   all the special interest non-Christian religious organizations,
   Congress, the White House and the U.S. Supreme Court doing their
   absolute darndest to wipe out Christianity in the United States and
   deny us our Christian heritage._
   There can be no mistake if anyone takes the time to study the
   hard-core effect at eradication of Christianity and the Ten
   Commandments from America, you can see the moral rot and how its
   spread through all layers of our society. For those who would like to
   research this in more depth, I fully recommend David Barton's
   outstanding video titled, _America's Godly Heritage_ from Wall
   Builders, P.0. Box 397, Aledo, TX 76008 and the book,_ America's God
   and Country Encyclopedia of Quotations_ by William J. Federer, your
   local bookseller can order it, just give them the ISBN #
   lt is quite amazing how the U S. Supreme Court has evolved over the
   years, legislating from the bench, _hallucinating their decisions
   based on a Constitution I've never seen._ But then again, look at the
   people who make up the court, three of them today are CFR and that
   spells anti-American. A few words from the bench back when America as
   a whole still believed in morals, integrity and character: _"Our laws
   and our institutions must necessarily be based upon and embody the
   teachings of the Redeemer of mankind. It is impossible that it should
   be otherwise; and in this sense and to this extent, our civilization
   and our institutions are emphatically Christian." _The U.S. Supreme
   Court, 1892, _Church of Holy Trinity v. United States._
   _If there is this big separation of church and state and the liberals
   go ballistic over Christianity, why then did Congress make the Jewish
   religion the officially recognized religion of the United States?_ No,
   you say? Below is Public Law 102-14 [HJ Res. 104] March 20, 1991:
   Education Day, U.S.A Proclamation, Joint Resolution designating March
   26, 1991 as Education Day USA , and it states:
   _WHEREAS_ Congress recognizes the historical tradition of ethical
   values and principles which are the basis of civilized society and
   upon which our great nation was founded;
   _WHEREAS these ethical values and principles have been the bedrock of
   society from the dawn of civilization, when they are known as the
   Seven Noahide Laws;_
   _WHEREAS_ without these ethical values and principle the edifice of
   civilization stands in serious peril of returning to chaos;
   _WHEREAS_ society is profoundly concerned with the recent weakening of
   these principles that have resulted in crises that beleaguer and
   threaten the fabric of civilized society;
   _WHEREAS_ the justified preoccupation with these crises must not let
   the citizens of this Nation lose sight of their responsibility to
   transmit these historical ethical values from our distinguished part
   tot he generations of the future;
   _WHEREAS the Lubavitch movement_ has fostered and promoted these
   ethical values and principles throughout the world;
   _WHEREAS_ Rabbi Menachem Schneerson, leader of the Lubavitch movement
   is universally respected and revered and his eighty-ninth birthday
   falls on March 26, 1991;
   _WHEREAS_ in tribute to this great spiritual leader, "the rebbe,"
   this, his ninetieth year, will be seen as one of "education and
   giving," the year in which we turn to education and charity. To return
   the world to the moral and ethical values contained in the Seven
   Noahide Laws; and
   _WHEREAS_ this will be reflected in an international scroll of honor
   signed by the President of the United States and other heads of state.
   Now, therefore, be it resolved by the Senate and House of
   Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled,
   that March 26, 1991, the start of the ninetieth year of Rabbi
   Schneerson, leader of _the worldwide Lubavitch movement, is designated
   as "Education Day, USA ..."_ The President_ is requested to issue a
   proclamation calling upon the people of the U.S. to observe such day
   with appropriate ceremonies and activities._ This resolution was
   adopted, ratified and signed into law by George Bush.
   The following commentary on this resolution was written by Don Bell,
   Box 2223, Palm Beach, Fl 33480, March 1992:
   "The Seven Noahide Laws are mentioned twice in Public Law 102-14, but
   are not spelled out. They seem difficult to find in English
   translation. We were not able to find them. A Christian pastor and
   subscriber informs us that they appear in a book written by one Rabbi
   Marvin Antelman, but we haven't been able to locate the book. However,
   they can be seen in the Institute of Judaic-Christian Researcher,
   January, 1990, in the following form:
   (1 ) Thou shalt not engage in idol worship; (2) Thou shalt not
   blaspheme God; (3) Thou shalt not shed innocent blood of a human or
   fetus nor ailing person who has a limited time to live; (4) Thou shalt
   not engage in bestial, incestuous, adulterous or homosexual relations
   nor commit the act of rape; (5) Thou shalt not steal; (6) Thou shalt
   establish laws and courts of law to administer these laws, including
   the death penalty for those who kill, administered only if there is
   one testifying witness; (7) Thou shalt not be cruel to animals.
   Further information concerning the Noahide Laws are found on Page 737
   of Encyclopedia Americana: _"A Jewish Talmudic designation for seven
   biblical laws_ given to Adam and to Noah before the revelation to
   Moses on Mt Sinai and consequently binding all mankind. Beginning with
   Genesis 2:16, the Babylonian Talmud listed the first six
   commandments...After the flood a seventh commandment, given-to Noah,
   forbade the eating of flesh from living animals (Genesis 9:4).
   Throughout the ages scholars have viewed the Noahide Laws as a link
   between Judaism and Christianity, as universal norms of ethical
   conduct, _as a basic concept of international law, or as a guarantee
   of fundamental human rights for all."_
   Now Facts With Comment. In the Bible there is a reference to the
   Noahic Covenant and the rainbow and its symbol and promise, _but there
   is no mention of any Seven Noahide Laws. These come not from the
   Bible, but from the Babylonian Talmud._ (The Torah is defined by
   Webster as "the whole body of Jewish religious literature including
   the Scriptures, the Talmud, etc.) _Since these laws apply to all
   mankind, it is said in Noahidic literature that "The Seven Noahide
   Laws may now receive a recognition as a source of international law.
   By stating that the 'ethical principles' which have been 'the bedrock
   of society from the dawn of civilization' are the Seven Noahide Laws,"
   Public Law 102-14, provides national recognition to both a theoretical
   foundation and the justification for general principles of law as
   sources of international law rules._
   _This theoretical foundation anticipates further international
   recognition by its incorporation in an 'international scroll of honor
   signed by the President of the United States and other heads of
   state,' and essaying to 'return to the world' the Seven Noahide Laws
   for 'international law.' Here we see the real reason for passage of
   Public Law 102- 14. It is a step towards establishment of a law code
   for a one world government....." _End of comment
   Referring to the Seven Noahide Laws, Gordon Ginn, Phd., comments: "A
   superficial reading of these 'laws' may elicit a favorable response
   from those who have not done their homework. But the crux of the
   matter is how they are interpreted. For example, if Orthodox Jews
   interpret them, every Christian would be guilty of violating number
   one (Thou shalt not engage in idol worship) because no cross,
   crucifix, image, photograph, or anything that could be construed as an
   icon would be allowed. Christians would be guilty of violating number
   two (Thou shalt not blaspheme God) because they believe that Jesus
   Christ was God in the flesh, and that is blasphemy to the Jews. The
   Jews believe that Jesus was not the son of God but only a prophet.
   Technically, every Christian on the face of the earth could be
   executed under these laws. [Editorial note: How about number 7: That
   it is a violation of the Seven Noahide Laws to eat the flesh of
   animals? Shall all Christians then be executed because one witness saw
   them at Black Angus restaurant eating a steak? Think about it.]
   "Whoever is behind the 'Seven Noahide Laws' is not wasting any time
   nailing down their dastardly plans On the day (March 2Oth) that George
   Bush signed the resolution into law, the Wall Street Journal carried a
   front page story about the Noahides_. And now that we are saddled with
   this "law," the Noahides are exploring the feasibility of taking it
   worldwide through the United Nations._ It seems to me that this fits
   right in with Bush's New World Order." End of Ginn quote.
   There is more material but due to space constraint, I'll have to leave
   it up to readers to research this for themselves. The bottom line is
   this: It's unconstitutional to display the 10 Commandments anywhere in
   public now. Crosses placed at the side of the road by people who have
   lost a loved one are now under attack because some people are offended
   by seeing a cross. _But Congress can vote into law the requirement
   that Americans adopt the Jewish religion and that these Seven Noahide
   Laws will now somehow constitute international law? Isn't this
   Give me a break. Only a fool can't see what's going on here. And why
   would Congress even consider such action in favor of one religion over
   another, say a resolution to support Muslims? Perhaps this might shed
   some light on that question: In an essay reprinted in the May 27, 1996
   issue of _The New York Times_, Ari Shavit, an Israeli columnist,
   reflected _somewhat_ sorrowfully on the wanton Israeli killing of more
   than 100 Lebanese civilians in April. "We killed them out of a certain
   naive nubris. Believing with absolute certitude _THAT NOW WITH THE
   This is a shocking statement in more ways than one._ First of all,
   what does Mr. Shavit means when he says the Jews have the White House,
   the Senate and much of the American media "in our hands?"_ And second,
   what does that have anything to do with the "wanton killing of more
   than 100 Lebanese civilians?" What does the wanton killing of more
   than 100 human beings have to do with Jews having the White House, the
   Senate and much of the American media "in our hands?" How does this
   equate to other people's lives not being as important as Jewish lives?_
   These statements are very serious and should make all Americans,
   including those of the Jewish faith, ponder the implications of such
   words. If you are an American citizen, your first allegiance should be
   to America, not Israel or Germany or Canada._
   Getting back to a Public Law passed by Congress that America should
   adopt Jewish laws as the bedrock of our society_, our great nation was
   not founded on the Seven Noahide Laws or the Jewish religion._ It was
   not founded on the Catholic Church or the Baptist faith or Buddhism.
   It was founded on Christianity and the teachings of Jesus Christ, not
   a specific religion or church. I am one of the most religiously
   tolerant people I know I have read the religious doctrines of more
   than 30 world religions. I disagree with many of the precepts of these
   religions, i.e. that I am the spawn of the Devil as preached in the
   Islamic religion because I was born "white." But, as long as someone

While the Christians do generally accept the Hebrew Bible as truly from God, many of them (those who accept the so-called divinity of Jesus) are idolaters according to the Torah, punishable by death, and certainly will not enjoy the World to Come.  But it is not just being a member of a denomination in which the majority are believers in the Trinity that is idolatry, but personal idolatrous practice, whatever the individual's affiliation.




Level:  Basic

The Torah maintains that the righteous Gentiles of all nations (those observing the Seven Laws of Noah, listed below) have a place in the World to Come.  But not all religious Gentiles earn eternal life by virtue of observing their religion:

bulletWhile it is recognized that Moslems worship the same God that we do (though calling him Allah, He is the same God of Israel), even those who follow the tenets of their religion cannot be considered righteous in the eyes of God, because they do not accept that the Written Torah in the hands of the Jews today is the original Torah handed down by God and they do not accept the Seven Laws of Noah as binding on them.

Contrary to popular belief, the Torah does not maintain that Jews are necessarily better than other people simply because they are Jews.  Although we are God's chosen people, we do not believe that God chose the Jews because of any inherent superiority.   According to a story in the Talmud, God offered the Torah to all the nations of the earth, and the Jews were the only ones who accepted it.   According to another story, the Jews were offered the Torah last, and accepted it only because God held a mountain over their heads!  Another traditional story suggests that God chose the Jews because they were the lowliest of nations, and their success would be attributed to God's might rather than their own ability.  Clearly, these are not the ideas of a people who think they are inherently better than other nations.

Because of our acceptance of Torah, Jews have a special status in the eyes of God, but we lose that special status when we abandon Torah.  Furthermore, the blessings that we received from God by accepting the Torah come with a high price:  Jews have a greater responsibility than non-Jews.  While non-Jews are only obligated to obey the seven commandments given to Noah, Jews are responsible for fulfilling the 613 mitzvot in the Torah, thus God will punish Jews for doing many things that would not be a sin for non-Jews.

The Seven Laws of Noah

According to Torah tradition, God gave Noah and his family seven commandments to observe when he saved them from the flood.  These commandments, referred to as the Noahic or Noahide commandments, are learned by tradition but also suggested in Genesis Chapter 9, and are as follows:

  1. not to commit idolatry
  2. not to commit blasphemy
  3. not to commit murder
  4. not to have forbidden sexual relations
  5. not to commit theft
  6. not to eat flesh cut from a living animal
  7. to establish courts of justice to punish violators of the other six laws.

These commandments may seem fairly simple and straightforward, and most of them are recognized by most of the world as sound moral principles.  But according to the Torah only those Gentiles who observe these laws because God commanded them in His Torah will enjoy life in the World to Come:  If they observe them just because they seem reasonable or because they think that God commanded them in some way other than in the Torah, they might as well not obey them so far as a part in the World to Come is concerned.

The Noahic commandments are binding on all people, because all people are descended from Noah and his family.  The 613 mitzvot of the Torah, on the other hand, are only binding on the descendants of those who accepted the commandments at Sinai and upon those who take on the yoke of the commandments voluntarily (by conversion).   Some say that the Noahic commandments are applied more leniently to non-Jews than the corresponding commandments are to Jews, because non-Jews do not have the benefit of Oral Torah to guide them in interpreting the laws.  Some European rabbis (presumably because of fear of reprisal from their Christian neighbors, famous for their violence to Jews) have gone so far as to say that worshipping God in the form of a man constitutes idolatry for a Jew punishable by death, but the Trinitarian Christian worship of Jesus does not constitute idolatry.   In truth, any idolatry for which a Jew is punishable by death is also punishable by death for non-Jews, including the worship of a man as a god.

We plan to provide on this site a full exposition of Seven Laws, including many details that could not be guessed from the listing above.

Terms Used for Gentiles

It appears that some Gentiles prefer the more neutral term non-Jew, but few today are insulted by Gentile, the classical term for them appearing often in Bible translations.   When we use it here, we certainly intend no offence and hope that none is taken; we would not be writing much of this, if we were lacking in respect and affection for Gentiles.

The most commonly used Hebrew or Yiddish word for a non-Jew is goy.  The word "goy" means nation, and refers to the fact that goyim are members of other nations, that is, nations other than the Children of Israel.  There is nothing inherently insulting about the word "goy".  In fact, the Bible occasionally refers to the Jewish people using the term "goy".  Most notably, in Exodus 19,6, God says that the Children of Israel will be "a kingdom of priests and a holy nation", that is, a goy kadosh.  Because Jews have had so many bad experiences with anti-Semitic non-Jews over the centuries, the term "goy" has taken on some negative connotations, but in general the term is no more insulting than the word "Gentile".

The more insulting terms for non-Jews are shiksa (feminine) and shkutz or sheketz (masculine).  It may be gathered that these words are derived from the Hebrew root Shin-Qof-Tzade, meaning loathsome or abomination.  The word shiksa is most commonly used to refer to a non-Jewish woman who is dating or married to a Jewish man, which should give some indication of how strongly Jews are opposed to the idea of intermarriage.   The term shkutz or sheketz is most commonly used to refer to an anti-Semitic man.   Both terms can be used in a less serious, more joking way, but in general they should be used with caution, if at all; in fact, we personally only use these terms to refer to apostate Jews whose behavior is disgusting.

Interfaith Marriages

The Torah does not permit or even recognize marriages between Jews and Gentiles, if performed despite the prohibition.  The punishment for Jews for such marriages is being cut off from the Jewish people and any part in the World to Come, whether the couple formally marries according to secular law or they just live together.

The Written Torah states that the children of such marriages would be lost to the Jewish people (Deuteronomy 7,3-4), and experience has shown the truth of this passage all too well:  Children of intermarriage are rarely raised Jewish; they are normally raised in the faith of the non-Jewish partner or non-religious.  This may reflect that Jews who intermarry are not deeply committed to their religion in the first place (if they were, why would they marry someone who did not share it?), but the statistics are sufficiently alarming to be a matter of great concern to the Jewish community.

Some Orthodox Jews go so far as to state that intermarriage is accomplishing what Hitler could not:  the destruction of the Jewish people.  That may seem an extreme view, but it vividly illustrates how seriously many Jews take the issue of intermarriage.  Nonetheless, currently most Jews outside the Land of Israel are taking non-Jewish marital partners.

If the non-Jewish spouse truly shares the same values as the Jewish spouse, then the non-Jew is welcome to convert, and if the non-Jew does not share the same values, then the couple should not be marrying in the first place.  While conversion just to allow a Gentile to marry a Jew is not legitimate, many a Gentile initially considered conversion after finding a Jewish potential marital partner, and then in the end became a sincere convert before the marriage.


In general, Jews do not try to convert non-Jews to Judaism.  In fact, according to halakhah (Jewish Law), rabbis are supposed to make three vigorous attempts to dissuade a person who wants to convert to Judaism.

As the discussion above explained, Jews have a lot of responsibilities that non-Jews do not have.  To be considered a good and righteous person in the eyes of God, a non-Jew need only follow the seven Noahic commandments, whereas a Jew has to follow all 613 commandments given in the Torah.  If the potential convert is not going to follow those extra rules, it is better for him or her to stay a Gentile, and since we as Jews are all responsible for each other, it is better for us too if that person stayed a Gentile.  The rabbinically mandated attempt to dissuade a convert is intended to make sure that the prospective convert is serious and willing to take on all this extra responsibility.

Once a person has decided to convert, the proselyte must begin to learn Jewish law and customs, and begin to observe them.  This teaching process generally takes at least one year, because the prospective convert is encouraged to experience each of the Jewish holidays; however, the actual amount of study required will vary from person to person (a convert who was raised as a Jew might not need any further education, for example, while another person might need several years).

After the teaching is complete, the proselyte is brought before a Beit Din (rabbinical court) which examines the proselyte and determines whether he or she is ready to become a Jew.  If the proselyte passes this oral examination, the rituals of conversion are performed.  If the convert is male, he is circumcised (or, if he was already circumcised, a pinprick of blood is drawn for a symbolic circumcision).  Both male and female converts are immersed in the mikveh (a ritual bath used for spiritual purification).  The convert is given a Jewish name and is then introduced into the Jewish community.

In theory, once the conversion procedure is complete, the convert is as much a Jew as anyone who is born to the religion.  In practice, the convert is often treated with caution, because we have had a lot of bad experiences with converts who later return to their former faith in whole or in part.
