Year of Dragon, Day 54
I believe that both the Torah and the Bible
are two Chapters of the Mother Book from
One True Religion of God, in the Adamic Cycle
like other Chapters such as
Dhammapada, Bhagavad Gita, Quran.

We both believe in the same God….and we both are waiting for the Messiah…It is just that the Christians are waiting for him to come again….and the Jews are waiting for him to come….We have part Two of the Bible…and they have just Part one…What we call the Old testament….
And the Jews have many more Laws than we do….But they do have the ten that we do…It is just that they have more…Like do not eat Pork…..
and I so love my ham and eggs

Christians believe Jesus was/is the Messiah. The Jews believe he was just a nice Jewish boy who went into his fathers business. Not all that much difference really.

REVIEW: Judaism’s Strange Gods by Michael Hoffman
Judaism’s Strange Gods is a thoroughly disgusting book, not for what Michael Hoffman has written, but for what it tells us about Judaism, namely, that it is ungodly and a sorry excuse for a religion; it does nothing to worship or glorify God, but goes above and beyond the call of decency in worshiping and glorifying itself.
The centerpiece of Judaism is, of course, not the Torah, the equivalent of the Christian Old Testament, but the Talmud, the oral tradition of the Pharisees that was first written down 200 years into the Christian era and expanded upon 300 years later, in about 500 CE; and oh, what a nasty piece of work it is.
The Talmud is racist, hate-filled, and dishonest, a veritable handbook for losers who can’t win honestly as real winners do but must lie and cheat to simulate victory. The Talmud makes dishonesty an art and a science and brings it to new levels, particularly in the ways Jews are to deal with non-Jews who are viewed as less than human and expendable in the skewed, Jewish scheme of things.
For a good part of Judaism’s Strange Gods, Hoffman gives example after nauseating example of this inherent dishonesty, including how to cheat God – particularly if you are a rabbi – and do it with His imagined blessing.
Something that stood out for me was the amount of psychological projection present in Judaism, that is, the penchant to take the worst characteristics of yourself, or in this case, themselves, and ascribe these to others. For example, seeing non-Jews as unfair and not trustworthy while telling Jews not to be trustworthy in dealing with non-Jews but to treat them unfairly; or justifying killing Palestinians because “In the Talmudic imagination, the Palestinian people are coming collectively to kill the Judaics, so the Palestinian people must be killed preventively” never thinking that it was the ‘Judaics’ who collectively came to Palestine and killed the Palestinians living there.
Judaism is a two-faced religion, publicly presented as tolerant and beneficent while secretly – and sometimes not so secretly – hostile toward non-Jews and particularly hateful toward Christians, even calling for their execution simply because they are Christians and not Jews. It works hard and overtime to keep its people in darkness.
Something else that non-Jews may not be aware of are the many sexual hang-ups in Judaism, particularly around menstrual blood, with some rabbis even doing panty checks for ritual purity. Judaism is also abusive of children, with ******** performed on infant boys as part of the circumcision ritual, and sex with boys under the age of nine or girls under the age of three seen as nothing for adults of either gender.
Judaism’s Strange Gods is a 382 page condensation of Hoffman’s earlier, 1102 page work, Judaism Discovered: A Study of the Anti-Biblical Religion of Racism, Self-Worship, Superstition and Deceit, that’s meant

Jewish belief stops at the old testiment. They are awaiting the arrivial of the Messiah who will bring Isreal back to its glory and will rule over men forever. Christians believe that Jesus was that Messiah and has fullfilled the tenets of the law for us and He will restore Isreal in the future and will come again and establish his kingdom over us.
We are the childern of God.

Similarities; they both believe there is a Messiah, whether he has came yet or not, they both believe in our Heavenly Father and Creator, and they both believe in the commandments.
Differences; Most Christians believe the Messiah has came to where Jews do not. Most Christians believe there are only 10 commandments and they no longer have to follow them and Jews know there are more than 10 and they still follow them the way they are suppose to.

Because Jews don’t believe that Jesus was the Messiah they tend to stick to the rules that were written in the old testament of the Bible eg. They don’t eat pork, they keep the sabbaths, I’m pretty sure the males cover their heads all the time etc.
