The concept of this blog – is as the title states!
The idea being that a huge amount of information is posted on here, to enable the reader to gather information!
I do not take lightly the concept of this blog or its contents – it is with regret that this blog exists.
I had been a Christian for more years than I care to remember and a devout one.
It was about 10 years ago that I started researching the New Testament and the research was devastating.
You will find much information on the Noahide Path blog – on exposing Christianity and its New Testament.
I found the idea of a good deal of information at my disposal brilliant, and I make no bones about copying the idea for this blog.
I was utterly thrown by realizing that the New Testament was a plagiarist of the Old Testament/Tanach and much of its
contents was a sheer copy cat and incorrect, as absolutely nothing can be proved – and much is historically incorrect. I did not
throw god out with the bath water – well as my understanding was at the time.
The god of Israel was the only god and Jesus, his father and the holy spirit were non persona gratis.
I did not want to be Jewish – though I had thought about converting. I was informed that all Gentiles were Noahide’s and that Universal Seven Laws
were expected to be obeyed by all non Jews.
The concept of this seemed reasonable – so I settled down to try and understand what was expected of me. Facebook was a great boon,
and I was able to contact people who had also discovered what I had researched.
Something niggled at the back of my mind – I tried to ignore it – so I spoke too many people, studied, read books …
Last year I started to think things through, and not to ignore this horrid little niggle – funny how difficult it is to face up to reality.
There was much bickering in the Noahide Movement/groups and as per Christianity nobody seemed to be able to agree!
The haven was fast disappearing as the Jews seemed to want to dominate how the Noahides should be – and others who felt it was a
Gentile requirement and should be controlled by non-Jews.
I think it is a fair statement to say that research can be very bad for ones health and equilibrium.
It is best not to have any preconceived ideas about a research subject – as often the discovery is not what one expects!
The Torah was in question in my mind, nothing seemed to be solid, all smoke screens , nonsensical and miracles. The more I thought about it the more I seemed to realize that Judaism was not the answer.
The Talmud seemed to be higgery pokery and made no sense – the Jews seem to be as unquestioning as most Christians!
I could not actually find any solid basis in the written Torah for the Seven Universal Laws. It was mentioned only in the Talmud!
Then the truth bomb exploded with full force – the Torah/Tanach was also pious fiction, plagaurised from a religion that was much older than the Torah.
Wow where does one go huh ………
It would appear that there is no god of Israel, no Adam and Eve, no sin, no Noah/flood, no Abraham, no Moses, no Exodus, no Law giving at Sinai, no 12 tribes of Israel et al.
How is this possible one thinks?
If Genesis is not the beginning – what is?
“Long before the Hebrews/Jews developed the stories preserved in the Old Testament, ancient Sumerians and Babylonians had developed their own law codes, for which they too had claimed divine inspiration. Indeed, the Hebrew writers borrowed many ideas from their neighbors, but they put these ideas into the mouths of literary characters like Moses and Yahweh in order to lend authority to their laws, inspiring people to obey them. This technique, this “pious fraud,” was quite common in the ancient world. Mesopotamians, Egyptians, Greeks, Persians, Romans, and others all claimed to derive their laws from divine sources and inspiration, but it should be obvious to modern investigators that these codes were all actually man-made.
“REDISCOVERY OF HAMMURABI’S CODE
In 1901 Jacques de Morgan, a French mining engineer, led an archaeological expedition to Persia to excavate the Elamite capital of Susa, more than 250 miles from the center of Hammurabi’s kingdom. There they uncovered the stela—broken into three pieces—that had been brought to Susa as spoils of war, likely by the Elamite king Shutruk-Nahhunte in the mid-12th century B.C. The stela was packed up and shipped to the Louvre in Paris, and within a year it had been translated and widely publicized as the earliest example of a written legal code—one that predated but bore striking parallels to the laws outlined in the Hebrew Old Testament. The 1935 U.S. Supreme Court building features Hammurabi on the marble bas relief of historic lawgivers that lines the south wall of the courtroom.”
http://www.ancient.eu/hammurabi/His famous law code is not the first such code in history (though it is often called so) but is certainly the most famous from antiquity prior to the code set down in the biblical books. The Code of Ur-Nammu (c. 2100-2050 BCE), which originated with either Ur-Nammu or his son Shulgi of Ur, is the oldest code of laws in the world. Hammurabi’s code differed from the earlier laws in significant ways. The historian Kriwaczek explains this, writing:
