• Enforcing Noahide Laws

    While Islam gets the bulk of the attention through its attempt to create a global Caliphate under Sharia Law, those pushing to introduce and enforce the counterfeit "Seven Noahide Laws" are working away, spreading their blasphemous lie that humans can be saved by lawkeeping, and rejecting God's free and unmerited gift of salvation and eternal life through Jesus Christ.


    Parashat Yitro: Every knee shall bend


    [... ...]

    Returning to the biblical message of Yitro, at the very least we are enjoined to oppose human enslavement and spread the Ten Commandments. After all, the Midrash on the verse "God came forth from Sinai [after] He had shown [His laws]
    to them from Seir and revealed [them] from the Mount of Paran ..." (Deuteronomy
    33:2) teaches that God initially offered His Decalogue
    to the descendants of Esau (Seir) and then to the descendants of Ishmael (Paran), only to have them rejected by all except Israel. And Maimonides
    rules that only the Jews must keep the 613 commandments for ultimate "salvation"; it is enough for the gentile world to accept the Seven
    Noahide Laws of morality (Laws of Kings 8,10).

    But we certainly must proselytize every human being to keep those seven
    laws - do not worship an idol, do not misuse God's Name, do not murder,
    do not commit licentious sexual acts, do not steal, respect all creatures,
    and create a judicial system to enforce the first six laws.
