Jahcub: No Yeshua Vs Moshe. JAH is One. So is the Fulfillment of the Ible, it is One.
Woah... you are opening up a whole can of worms here. I'll take it as your reverence for the book. But have you truly thought this through? The religion of Yeshua is not the same as the religion of Moshe. There are stark differences between Judaism and Christianity. Early bible writers consider the Mosaic law as bondage. Although, people try to reconcile Yeshua and Moshe the only real continuity is the claim that both served the same God.
Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or
the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil.
When I was a Christian I would use this a lot but at the time I wasn't well versed on Mosaic law. Some of the disagreement can be reduced to interpretation but the truth is that Yeshua was all about love. Moshe was not.
Moshe was about law and order. He was more like a conservative republican while Yeshua was more like a hippy liberal. They had two different ideologies. If you didn't believe Moshe about Jah, that was it for you. You were done. That was a crime. Yeshua's approach was all about choice. If you didn't believe you could still live your life. That in itself is a rejection of Moshe.
Moshe allowed slavery. This is one of the dark realities of the bible. It was legal to both own and beat your slaves. You could also force a slave into giving up freedom forever if he had the nerve to fall in love with another one of your slaves. Moshe even says that person is your money (capital). Moshe allowed human trafficking. Women were considered spoils of war until they had too many issues with foreign influence and they limited it to just virgins.
Moshe was a conqueror. He stole land from the Canaanites by force, where Abraham had previously lived with them in peace. Moshe actually committed genocide against his own people in order to establish his own authority. The fact that he was not a king made ZERO difference because, as mouthpiece of Jah, Moshe claimed to have the highest authority of anyone on earth. And without a king he would simply remain in power until his death. He also created a line of succession for the priesthood so that it would stay in the family. Aaron was his brother, which means that was his family too. And instead of wealth going to a king he simply made it so that wealth went to his family and mandated that they didn't have to work and the Israelites would serve them by bringing them food. The more they sinned the more food they were brought. And then there were the tithes that they were entitled to. Whatever they didn't give to widows and fatherless children they surely kept for themselves. They had cities built for them. While everyone else worked and had real jobs, including rabbis, all they had to do was put on a show of sacrifice. This created a class divide that you can see the full fruits of when Yeshua came along. The only reason that the religion was so heavily influenced by the tribe of Judah was because the Israelites eventually got tired of the priest-king setup and asked for a real king. Selassie is in the image of that lineage, not the Mosaic Levitical priest class.
I could keep going and talk about how Moshe had multiple wives and allowed everyone to have multiple wives as long as they could afford it. Men today like this but the reality is that this is a very patriarchal system that prefers male domination and does not treat women equally or even fairly.
With all the things I named do I really have to go through each one, explaining how Yeshua was different? And how he was opposed to what came before? And it wasn't a secret that he was a reformer. That's why people asked him directly about questions of Mosaic Law in order to see how he would respond. Because they knew that Mosaic Law had serious problems and didn't like being forced to live under that system. That's why Yeshua was popular and the pharisees weren't. Yeshua had to someone placate for the same of this idea of scriptural continuity but he did not support Mosaic law. Instead of eye for an eye he spoke of forgiveness. Instead of execution by stoning, WHICH THEY WERE LEGALLY OBLIGATED TO DO, he said he who is without sin cast the first stone. Why? Because he knew that the law lent itself to hypocrisy and false witness. It was NOT a good system.
Yes, everyone likes the 10 commandments, but that wasn't the whole of Mosaic law and the 10 commandments didn't need to come from a mountain top because Moshe already knew them from Kemet and Ma'at. I'm not saying he copied word for word but rather than he already knew and studied enough in Kemet to have written 10 commandments. And he may have changed even the 10 from the first attempt to the second because if you recall, he broke the first set, the one supposedly written by the finger of Jah. This action conveniently allowed no one to check Jah's handwriting, find any errors, or see any changes.
So if Moshe never existed, then what? The world would have other laws and other spiritual systems such as the Kemetic, such as Buddhism, paganism, etc. There would have been no religious wars between Christianity and Islam because neither would exist. You could possibly have more advancements in science, math, medicine, and technology as these things were actively held back by Christians. And without Christian persecution of the inquisition, witch trials, etc. Many whites may not have even come to America. And even if they did they may not have used African slaves since this idea came from a Catholic priest and was based on his biblical interpretation regarding cursed servitude. Perhaps, with no Christian arrogance regarding everyone else as ignorant savages there would have been no Trail of Tears.
I can tell you that pagans are very nice people. It is sad that they are imagined to be devil worshipers by Christians. Many Christians imagine "the adversary" to be a demon who has enslaved the minds of so many that they over react to people who are different from them by accusing them of being satanic. And so they persecute others and have done so to the extent that one of the saving graces of America is the separation of Church and State and that is because many of the founding fathers were actually Deists.
Deism is a philosophical belief in human reason as a reliable means of solving social and political problems. Deists believe in a supreme being who created the universe to operate solely by natural laws—and after creation, is absent from the world. This belief in reason over dogma helped guide the founders toward a system of government that respected faiths like Christianity, while purposely isolating both from encroaching on one another so as not to dilute the overall purpose and objectives of either.
Currently, Christians in the US are barely in check because they are actively trying to take over the Supreme Court so that they can deny women's right to choose, according to THEIR belief.
When men fight with one another and the wife of the one draws near to rescue her husband from the hand of him who is beating him and puts out her hand and seizes him by the private parts, then you shall cut off her hand. Your eye shall have no pity.
I don't think this is what Yeshua meant in Matthew 18:8. And I don't think he was in favor of punishing people by cutting off their body parts. This is barbaric and creates a more fear based society. The approach of Yeshua was to treat others the way you wanted to be treated based on love.
