I guess this is the point where you need a REMINDER as to why we are conversing<quoted text>
Thanks but you may recall that I gave the theology from the scriptures, see below. Also, I tend to separate theology from customs and this does not mean that there is no merit in customs but I like to keep them separate.
The holiday THEOLOGY for TRUMPETS in the Torah are below.
Step 1 (tells WHEN it must be done)--"In the seventh month, on the first day of the month"
Step 2 (HOW)--"you shall observe a day of solemn REST"
STEP 3 (HOW)---"a memorial proclaimed with blast of trumpets, a holy convocation."
Step 4 (PROHIBITION)---You shall not do any ordinary work,
Step 5(HOW)--- and you shall present a food offering to the Lord.
You stated that reward and punishment was a dominant theology of Judaism (not of the Bible, but of Jews like me) and used Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur as examples.
My response was that the only references from the bible regarding these holidays were two commandments - shofar for Rosh Hashanah and affliicting for Yom Kippur. I followed up with source of the customs and meanings of the holidays which were not biblical but Talmudic.
The implication being two fold
1) any quotes from the bible regarding Gods nature, though potentially fascinating, were not necessarily relevant to those holidays despite your earlier citation
2) and that any theology attributed to them were not law but custom (actually they tend to be midrashic). Meaning that they are not canon. In fact they are the opposite. The theology ( the notion of book of life and death, and God as sitting on throne judging everyone) is basically a folk story (thats what midrash are).
So basically you just AGREED with my train of posts, and then (earlier) started to attack me for following the Talmud (red herring and straw argument)
