  1. Question: May a Jew enter a mosque or church when there is a need to do so or to visit there as a tourist attraction? Answer from Jewish site: http://halachayomit.co.il/en/default.aspx?HalachaID=2367 Answer: The great Rambam in his commentary on the Mishnah Masechet Avodah Zarah (Chapter One) deduces from the words of the Mishnah there regarding an actual house of idol worship “that we are almost forbidden to look at it, let alone enter it.” The words of the Rambam are quoted as Halacha by the Shach (Yoreh De’ah, Chapter 149) as well as the other Acharonim (ibid). The Tosafot in Masechet Avodah Zarah (17b) deduce from the Gemara (ibid.) that one must distance himself even from the entrance of a house of idol worship as much as possible. Similarly, Maran Ha’Shulchan Aruch in Yoreh De’ah (Chapter 150, Section 1) rules that there is a Mitzvah to distance one’s self four Amot (approximately 6.5 feet) from a path of idol worship. Thus, if one is walking close to a house of idol worship, such as a church, one should distance himself at least four Amot from the entrance to this place, for it is well-known that Christian churches are considered houses of idol worship as they believe in another deity besides for Hashem. If so, it is certainly forbidden to actually enter their churches, for they are actual houses of idol worship. The Evil Spirit Found in Houses of Idol Worship Besides for the halachic prohibition to enter a church, Hagaon Harav Chaim Palagi writes in his Responsa Chaim Be’Yad (Chapter 26) that when one enters a church, a spirit of heresy immediately cleaves to him; even if it does not cause one to sin, nevertheless, one impurifies himself just by entering such a place. This is especially true when the one who enters this place is a member of the holy Jewish nation to whom the forces of impurity cling strongly. One who enters a house of idol worship requires repentance and atonement for one’s sin. Based on this, it is clear that it is forbidden to enter a Christian church, for a church is a house of idol worship, as we have explained. The Practice of Maran Harav zt”l While Serving as a Rabbi in Egypt While Maran Rabbeinu Ovadia Yosef zt”l served as a Rabbi and Av Bet Din (head of the rabbinical court) in Egypt in the year 5708 (1948), he also served as Assistant Chief Rabbi of Egypt. The post of Chief Rabbi was held by a man by the name of Chaim Nachum Afandi who was close to the king of Egypt, a member of the Egyptian parliament in Cairo, and a member of the Academy of the Arabic Language, and was thus chosen for this position. During this period, a certain well-respected Christian diplomat passed away in Egypt and the government invited the country’s Chief Rabbi to represent the Chief Rabbinate and participate in the funeral services. Since the Chief Rabbi was in a weakened state, he requested that Maran zt”l attend the funeral in his place. When Maran zt”l heard that it was customary for all to file into the church where the deceased lay and listen to Christian prayers and the like, he notified the Chief Rabbi that under no circumstances would he agree to enter the church. The Chief Rabbi exerted much pressure on Maran zt”l to agree to go, for if no representative of the Chief Rabbinate would be present, this might cause a serious diplomatic incident to ensue. Nevertheless, Maran zt”l disagreed with his stance and claimed that, on the contrary, the participation of a rabbi at such an event is an unparalleled desecration of Hashem’s name and a disgrace of the Jewish religion in the eyes of the non-Jewish nations. He thus remained steadfast in his convictions and no representative of the Chief Rabbinate attended the funeral. Note: No fall-out ever resulted. Installing Air Conditioners in a Church Similarly, Maran zt”l was asked about an individual whose profession was installing air conditioning units who had just signed a large contract to install hundreds of air conditioners. Included in the deal was installing air conditioners in a church. He inquired whether he may continue his work or must he cancel the deal and as a result, incur a hefty financial loss as he would need to pay for penalties sustained. Maran zt”l answered that he may continue with his work on the condition that he himself would not enter the church; rather, his non-Jewish workers would have to install the air conditioners there. Maran zt”l added that he himself should not instruct the non-Jews to enter the church; rather, he should tell another non-Jew to hire him some non-Jewish workers and install the air conditioners. (He continues to provide copious sources for his view as is the practice of Maran zt”l. Unfortunately, we cannot discuss these reasons at length.) Entering a Muslim Mosque Regarding entering a mosque, the Rambam explains in one of his responses that Ishmaelites are not considered idol-worshippers since they believe in Hashem and there is no denial of Hashem in their religion or anything else that should cause them to be considered idol-worshippers. We are therefore lenient and sell our lands in Israel to Muslims during the Shemitta (Sabbatical) year based on the “Heter Mechira” process although it is forbidden to sell land in Eretz Yisrael to an idol-worshipper; this is because Muslims are not considered idol-worshippers. Based on this, mosques are not considered actual houses of idol worship and one may enter them according to the letter of the law. Summary: It is absolutely forbidden to enter a house of idol worship. Included in this prohibition is entering a Christian church or other kinds of houses of idol worship in the Far East. Nevertheless, there is no halachic prohibition to enter an Muslim mosque; this is especially true when this is being done in order to pray there, such as at the graves of our forefathers in the Machpela Cave in Hebron.

    The Bible is atleast in it’s complete form 700 years before the advent of African slavery, however Christians by and large (as demonstrated above) did in fact, use Bereishit (Genesis) 9:21-24 as a means of promoting slavery and distilling the gospel among the negro peoples: The bells of the Bristol churches pealed merrily on the news of the rejection by Parliament of Wilberforce’s bill for the abolition of the slave trade. The slave trader, John Newton, gave thanks in the Liverpool churches for the success of his last venture before his conversion and implored God’s blessing on his next. He established public worship twice every day on his slaver, officiating himself, and kept a day of fasting and prayer, not for the slaves but for the crew. “I never knew,” he confessed, “sweeter or more frequent hours of divine communion than in the last two voyages to Guinea.” – [Larimer, op. cit., 100. & S. H. Swinny, The Humanitarianism of the Eighteenth Century.] Many missionaries found it profitable to drive out Beelzebub by Beelzebub. According to the most recent English writer on the slave trade, they “considered that the best way in which to remedy abuse of negro slaves was to set the plantation owners a good example by keeping slaves and estates themselves, accomplishing in this practical manner the salvation of the planters and the advancement of their foundations.” The Moravian missionaries in the islands held slaves without hesitation; the Baptists, one historian writes with charming delicacy, would not allow their earlier missionaries to deprecate ownership of slaves.74 To the very end the Bishop of Exeter retained his 655 slaves, for whom he received over 12,700 compensation in 1833. Church historians make awkward apologies, that conscience awoke very slowly to the appreciation of the wrongs inflicted by slavery and that the defence of slavery by churchmen “simply arose from want of delicacy of moral perception.” – [ Mackenzie-Grieve, op. cit., 162., G. R. Wynne, The Church in Greater Britain (London, 1911), 120., H. of C. Sess. Pap., 1837-8, Vol. 48. The exact figure was 12,729.4.4 (pp. 19, 22)., Wynne, op. cit., 120; C. J. Abbey and J. H. Overton, The English Church in the Eighteenth Century (London, 1878), II, 107. and its results, in F. S. Marvin (ed.), Western Races and the World (Oxford, 1922), 130-131.] The very first person to propose enslaving Africans was a Christian. Christian priest, Bartholomew de la Casas, whom himself had slaves, proposed the use of Africans to ease the suffering of the slavery of the Amerindians. Roughly 1200 years before any of these figures existed, Muhammad (peace be upon him) commanded the freeing of slaves through the revelation of the Qur’aan: Indeed We have created man (to live) in hard struggle. Does he think that no one has power over him? He says, “I have spent a lot of wealth.” Does he think that no one has seen him? Did We not make for him two eyes, And one tongue and two lips, And showed him the two ways? Yet he did not make his way through the steep course, And what may let you know what the steep course is? It is freeing the neck of a slave. In fact the Qur’aan clearly details removing slavery: …..And those who seek a contract [for eventual emancipation] from among whom your right hands possess – then make a contract with them if you know there is within them goodness and give them from the wealth of Allah which He has given you. And do not compel your slave girls to prostitution, if they desire chastity, to seek [thereby] the temporary interests of worldly life. And if someone should compel them, then indeed, Allah is [to them], after their compulsion, Forgiving and Merciful. It was even the Muslims who compelled the British to remove slavery from being legal, they even did so themselves, leading by example in Morocco: Moorish envoy to England, in 1813, from Mulai Sulaiman, Emperor of Morocco (1794-1822), in whose reign Christian slavery was abolished in Morocco. His son Meïr Cohen Machim visited England in the same capacity in 1827.

    Jeremiah 8:8? | by Ijaz Ahmed
  10. The honeycombs built by the bees are so regular and flawless that it is astonishing for tiny animals to exhibit such a perfect structure. All combs consist of very regular hexagons. What do you think the bees need to consider when building a hexagonal honeycomb? The honeycomb cells have a 13-degree slope, which prevents honey from flowing out. Each of the internal angles of the honeycomb cells is formed as 120 degrees. If the angle with the ground were arranged correctly but the inner angle were not arranged correctly, there would be disorders in the honeycomb. If the internal angles were calculated correctly but the slope with the ground were not calculated correctly, all the honey stored in the honeycomb would fall onto the ground. How do bees calculate this 13-degree slope and 120-degree internal angles of the honeycomb cells without using a T-square and a ruler? How do they achieve these precise values, which even an engineer would have difficulty in calculating? How do they build this flawless honeycomb construction, which surpasses even the most talented craftsmen, though they do not have a plan and a construction site supervisor directing them? How will those who do not explain a small insect’s becoming a mathematician like an engineer and then working as a skilled master, building such flawless combs by the verse “And thy Lord taught the Bee” (an-Nahl 68) explain it? The bee is a cause; the extraordinary work it does is an effect (result). Since the cause is simple and the effect is perfect, the cause cannot be the doer. The wonderful things this little insect does will make even the most stubborn minds accept that the Lord, who educates and teaches the bee, is behind the scene.

    The Church also supported the slave trade. The Spaniards saw in it an opportunity of converting the heathen, and the Jesuits, Dominicans and Franciscans were heavily involved in sugar cultivation which meant slave-holding. The story is told of an old elder of the Church in Newport who would invariably, the Sunday following the arrival of a slaver from the coast, thank God “that another cargo of benighted beings had been brought to a land where they could have the benefit of a gospel dispensation.” – [R. Terry, Some Old Papers relating to the Newport Slave Trade (Bulletin of the Newport Historical Society, July, 1927), 10.] In fact, Christianity and the Negro slave trade had become so synonymous that famous British authors and writers were documenting their close cohesion within their societal framework: In 1750 Horace Walpole wrote scornfully of “the British Senate, that temple of liberty and the bulwark of Protestant Christianity,….pondering methods to make more effectual that horrid traffic of selling negroes. – [P. Cunningham (ed.), The Letters of Horace Walpole (London, 1891, II, 197. To Sir H. Mann, Feb. 25, 1750.)] ……..another Liverpool slave trader, Foster Cunliffe, contributed largely. He was a pioneer in the slave trade. he and his two sons are listed as members of the Liverpool Committee of Merchants trading to Africa in 1752. Together they had four ships capable of holding 1,120 slaves, the profits from which were sufficient to stock twelve vessels on the homeward journey with sugar and rum. An inscription to Foster Cunliffe in St. Peter’s Church describes him this: “a Christian devout and exemplary in the exercise of every private and publick duty, friend to mercy, patron to distress, an enemy only to vice and sloth, he lived esteemed by all who knew him….and died lamented by the wise and good….” – [For Cunliffe, see Bourne, op. cit., II, 57, Botsford, op. cit., 122; Enfield, op. cit.,43, 49; Donnan, op. cit., II, 492, 497.] Not only was this man praised by the Church for having the capability from one voyage to transfer 1, 120 slaves, he was praised for his service and deemed a friend to mercy, such to the extent this was inscribed on a Church! Unless Mr. Edwards has somehow developed amnesia, there is no excuse for his blatant disregard and misrepresentation of his faith when it’s this deeply related to slavery. https://callingchristians.com/tag/can-a-disciple-of-christ-be-racist/
  12. La Bible est plus violente que le Coran selon un logiciel d'analyse de texte ÉCRITURES – Un ingénieur développeur américain a utilisé son logiciel d'analyse de textes sur l'Ancien Testament, le Nouveau, et le Coran. Selon ses résultats, la Bible est légèrement plus portée sur la destruction et le meurtre que le livre de l'islam. "Le Coran est-il vraiment plus violent que la Bible ?" Tout est parti de cette question, que Tom Anderson, un ingénieur développeur de New-York s'est posée. En analysant la Bible complète et le Coran grâce à son logiciel comparatif, l'ingénieur en données informatiques s'est rendu compte que le livre chrétien contenait davantage d'allusions au "meurtre" et à la "destruction" que son homologue coranique. En janvier dernier, Tom Anderson a constaté que, dans les débats, les récents épisodes terroristes étaient souvent associés à un "islam fondamentaliste", qui serait un foyer de violences exploité par les extrémistes. Selon certains, le Coran encouragerait davantage les actes brutaux comparé aux autres textes religieux. Or "pour comprendre une religion, il est tout à fait logique de commencer par examiner sa littérature", pose l'ingénieur dans son étude . Et ça tombe bien, Tom Anderson a conçu un logiciel d'analyse, OdinText , destiné à aider les chercheurs dans leur étude de documents. L'outil scanne froidement le contenu d'une œuvre et révèle des tendances dans le vocabulaire utilisé, en fonction de mots-clés choisis : le nombre de fois où le mot a été utilisé, ses synonymes, les termes liés au même champs lexical, ou encore sa proximité avec les autres vocables recherchés. Sont donc passés sous l'œil mécanique du logiciel : l'Ancien Testament (dont les cinq premiers livres sont communs à la Torah, le livre sacré du judaïsme), le Nouveau Testament (associé à l'Ancien, il constitue la Bible chrétienne) et enfin le Coran (le livre sacré de l'islam). Pour comparer les trois livres, Tom Anderson a utilisé des repères autour des émotions humaines (et non, il ne s'agit pas d'un remake de Vice Versa) : la joie, l'attente, la colère, le dégoût, la tristesse, la surprise, la peur/l'anxiété et la confiance/croyance. OdinText a analysé 886.000 mots au total... le tout en deux minutes. Bible en "colère", Coran plein de "joie" Résultat de ce battle : la notion de "colère" est davantage utilisée dans la Bible (les deux Testaments) que dans le Coran, qui lui obtient un score plus élevé côté "joie" et "confiance/croyance", mais aussi pour ce qui est de la "peur/anxiété". La surprise, la tristesse et le dégoût se retrouvent à parts égales dans les deux textes, précise l'analyste. La Bible se défend toutefois grâce à "l'amour" présent à 3% dans le Nouveau Testament, à 1,9% dans l'Ancien, contre 1,26% dans le Coran. Mais la question demeure : la Coran est-il plus violent ? Le "meurtre" et la "destruction" constituent 2,1% du livre des musulmans, contre 2,8% du Nouveau Testament et pas moins de 5,3% de l'Ancien Testament, soit plus du double par rapport au Coran. En regardant le concept "d'ennemis", c'est encore le plus vieux des textes chrétiens qui bat le record. 1,8% de son contenu en fait mention, suivi du Coran (0,7%) et du Nouveau Testament (0,5%). Dans le Coran toutefois, l'ennemi est légèrement plus souvent un concept, comme le "Diable" ou le "mal" (0,2%), que dans le Nouveau Testament (0,1%). Le Coran évoque par ailleurs plus souvent "le pardon/la grâce" (6,3%) que les Nouveau (2,9%) et Ancien (0,7%) Testaments. Tom Anderson note toutefois que ce rapport est en partie dû à l’épithète "miséricordieux" fréquemment assorti au nom d' "Allah". "Certains pourraient exclure ce mot, considérant qu'il n'est qu'une étiquette ou un titre, mais nous pensons qu'il est signifiant, parce que la miséricorde a été préférée aux autres attributs comme 'tout-puissant'", nuance-t-il. Pour lui, il n'est pas question de prendre parti, et il reconnaît n'avoir "fait que gratter la surface". Il conclut toutefois : "Il semble juste d'en déduire que certains préjugés communément admis sur la perception de ces textes ne sont pas forcément porteurs de vérité". Ce qui nous donne furieusement envie de dire... amen. https://www.lci.fr/insolite/la-bible-est-plus-violente-que-le-coran-selon-un-logiciel-danalyse-de-texte-1503485.html
  13. Racism & Christianity !

    Slavery of the Unholy Races It is no doubt that when slavery was enacted in America, Christians used the Bible to justify this practice. In the 1800’s thousands of Africans were put into bondage, and worked for white Christians for no pay. The Christians, in defense of their belief of the ‘divine institution of slavery’ cited several passages from the Bible. This is impossible to ignore, indeed, it is a historical fact. In 1852 Jossiah Priest published a book called "Bible defence of slavery". The worldbook reference book, under the title “slavery” states: During the early 1800's, abolitionists started a crusade to end slavery. Southerners then began to defend slavery in what became known as the proslavery movement. Some Southerners in the movement argued that slavery reflected "the law of nature" that permitted the strong to rule the weak. Others insisted that the Bible supported slavery. Of course, at this time in America, slavery was a racial issue. The black slaves were forced into extremely harsh conditions, and this practice was defended, at the time, by the white Christian majority. Their defense was the Bible. But what does the Bible really say about racial slavery? Allowed or not? Let’s take a look: The UNHOLY RACES (non-Jews) can be slaves, but NOT the HOLY RACE: However, you may purchase male or female slaves from among the foreigners who live among you. You may also purchase the children of such resident foreigners, including those who have been born in your land. You may treat them as your property, passing them on to your children as a permanent inheritance. You may treat your slaves like this, but the people of Israel, your relatives, must never be treated this way. (Leviticus 25:44- 46) Furthermore, the practice of whipping slaves is condoned by the Bible as well: When a man strikes his male or female slave with a rod so hard that the slave dies under his hand, he shall be punished. If, however, the slave survives for a day or two, he is not to be punished, since the slave is his own property. (Exodus 21:20-21 NAB) In this law we see that beating a slave is ok unless the slave dies immediately, but if the death is not immediate, there is no harm done. The shocking treatment of African Slaves in the U.S. was clearly condoned by these passages. Jesus (SAAS) also clearly approves of the beating of slaves in the New Testament: The servant will be severely punished, for though he knew his duty, he refused to do it. "But people who are not aware that they are doing wrong will be punished only lightly. Much is required from those to whom much is given, and much more is required from those to whom much more is given." (Luke 12:47-48 NLT) Now after reviewing all of this material on the Christian terrorists/racists that exist, let us examine some other quotes we have mentioned in this document: “A relatively new tenet gaining popularity among some radical Christian Identity believers justifies the use of violence if it is perpetrated in order to punish violators of God's law, as found in the Bible and interpreted by Christian Identity ministers and adherents. This includes killing interracial couples, abortionists, prostitutes, and homosexuals.” Does the above sound like a far-fetched group of psychos, or a terrorist group based on strict interpretation of the Bible? Racist theology has today found itself powerful and influential voices. Of these, most prominent would be David Duke, former Ku Klux Klan leader, who was elected to the Louisiana House of Representatives. Duke proclaims that he has always been a believing Christian and that an integral part of his Christianity has been a theology of racial segregation. We read in his own work that in the name of race preservation, God has commanded genocide, segregation and anti-miscegenation, and today forbids racial intermarriage and the crossing of racial boundaries. Is this at all shocking coming from a proclaimed ‘Christian nation’ given what we have learned in this document? We see that the Bible promotes racism against all non-Jews and non-whites. It is crystal clear. We see that the Bible promotes genocide against foreign nations, and racial slavery, (including the whipping and beating of slaves.) Even the New Testament condones slavery (as seen in Ephesians 6:5 and 1 Timothy 6:1-2) We see that if what the Bible says about Jesus (saas) is true, then he considered anyone not of his race DOGS and the apostle Paul considered the non-Jew and the non-white a liar, wicked brute, and lazy glutton.

    Rules of War: Non-Jews have 2 options, become SLAVES OR DIE: "As you approach a town to attack it, first offer its people terms for peace. If they accept your terms and open the gates to you, then all the people inside will serve you in forced labor. But if they refuse to make peace and prepare to fight, you must attack the town. When the LORD your God hands it over to you, kill every man in the town. But you may keep for yourselves all the women, children, livestock, and other plunder. You may enjoy the spoils of your enemies that the LORD your God has given you. (Duet 10-15) More Genocide: You must completely destroy the Hittites, Amorites, Canaanites, Perizzites, Hivites, and Jebusites, just as the LORD your God has commanded you. (Duet. 15-18) More Genocide: During this period, Joshua destroyed all the descendants of Anak, who lived in the hill country of Hebron, Debir, Anab, and the entire hill country of Judah and Israel. He killed them all and completely destroyed their towns. Not one was left in all the land of Israel, though some still remained in Gaza, Gath, and Ashdod. So Joshua took control of the entire land, just as the LORD had instructed Moses. He gave it to the people of Israel as their special possession, dividing the land among the tribes. So the land finally had rest from war. (Joshua 11:21-23) It now becomes clear that the terrorists from among the Christians have no problem with wiping out entire races, man, woman, and child with all the weapons of mass destruction stockpiled as their possessions, and that this belief they derive from the Bible alone. No outside sources, no brainwashing, just old fashion biblical adherence.
