Judaism, The Only Truth (Page 3)
dadman1240: the Jewish nation (Israel) a nation blessed by God .... now rejected and set aside by God ... no longer the witness of God to the world .... u n t i l ... the fullness of the Gentiles come in .... see Romans 9 / 10 and 11 ><> http://dadmansabode.com/forum/viewtopic.php?p=622#p622 <><
Tomacco: One devout follower telling another devout follower (of a different god) that he is a liar! And peope still wonder why we atheists think like we do! lol
ghostgeek: Atheists don't need an excuse, Dadman, to see through the flimflam of religion. Pious talk and murky deeds can't disguise the fact that God has yet to put in an appearance.
ghostgeek: Shame there isn't a God, otherwise we could have a snicker at the thought of Chayiii being sent to the midden of Hell for his intemperate language.
J a g u a r:
I agree "Judaism is the only truth;" however, it's the only truth for us Jews.
Jewish Scriptures do show us that exist others paths to Hashem, and being a Jew is one of many.
As for what Dadman said:
* Jewish Scriptures tell us Jews our Covenant is everlasting. G-d is omniscient, Hashem knew and knows ahead of time our shortcomings, and for this reason an everlasting Covenant was made.
The Covenant is for us Jews to be reminded that we have Torah to comeback to Hashem. A reminder that we've chosen Hashem and Hashem has chosen us; above and beyond the imperfections of our humanity. Which He has bestowed upon us.
Winterson: Did God really arrange things so that only about fifteen million people would believe in His only truth? That doesn't seem like a very good Divine plan.
J a g u a r: Jewish Scriptures speak of the truth for Jews ONLY, we are NOT the religious police brigade. Our religious text recognize that exist non Jews who have a relationship with Hashem, we see it in the Noahide Covenant which has its laws, and is an everlasting Covenant. Meaning, the truth of G-d isn't only for Jews, Jewish Scriptures (Judaism) doesn't claim exclusivity as Christianity and Islam does.
bonzono: "Jewish Scriptures speak of the truth for Jews ONLY"
actual truth is not subjective.
the fact you've conceded that your religious is subjective shows you're aware it's nonsensical and can't be shown to be more than imagination.
your made up story and god can be anything you want. it's stupid to claim your mythical story is anything other than myth. it's even more stupid to claim that someone else's myth is less mythical than yours - they're ALL myths. NONE of them are actual fact.
bonzono: "God really arrange things so that only about fifteen million people would believe in His only truth? "
15 million people out of 100 billion (the number of humans to ever have lived) is a score of 0.015%.
god is an abject failure.
