Exercise your right not to read it.

But to be honest, I'll only count as the "teen skeptic" for a few more months (unless 18 and 19 count).

Twice, I did.

Pick your jaw up off the floor.

I can see that you are more mature than you were.

I'd shake your hand but there's a screen in the way.

It's not your thread.

Well delta bravo started it, but once it is posted, it becomes public and technically belongs to the forum and as long as no one deliberately tries to derail during an interesting discussion.

Dude you're fine. Smile and welcome home!

You're right

It's a stupid thread because "Jews" are huge group of people and the New Testament is universally famous.

It's as silly a topic as Do Brazilians Ever study the Second World War. The answer is self-evident.

(23-07-2017 06:51 PM)Aliza Wrote:  Speaking strictly from a Jewish perspective, the way you use the Torah (ie: baseball bat) properly is by not murdering people for thinking differently than you do. We can have a whole conversation about the wars that were depicted in early Jewish biblical stories, but bear in mind that we wrote the book, and we teach it according to what the Talmud says. We teach that those wars were not ideological but because of horrible behavior like wanton disregard of human life and human dignity. ALL civilizations at the time were fighting each other. Jews fought wars because we thought people were acting like barbarians. Christians fought wars because they didn't like the deity that other people believed in. To a Jewish audience, these are totally different.

This is a really big conversation, and an argument could also be made that the Jewish wars that were written about were just the Jews blowing smoke up everyone's asses to scare them into believing that they were more powerful than they actually were. We do tend to be more clever than physically strong. Tongue

I think we'll probably have to agree to disagree about the wars and crimes in the Tanakh, as I'm sure you've heard all the arguments before. But again I think your terms are rather broad: "From a Jewish perspective"? Which sect is that? I'll just clarify that from my observations of the Old Testament, countless killings were indeed carried out against people for "thinking differently from you [not you specifically of course]". You may argue that my interpretation is lesser since I'm not Jewish, but by that same logic I could probably say that your interpretation is lesser since you're not an ancient Israelite.
