Misleading is a matter of opinion.
Its been my experience among modern Judaism that there is a breadth of diversity on this and other subjects.
For what its worth, very little in the Talmud stands without a counter opinion.
One can mislead others by pretending to know it all.
The Gentile Christian has been and is being misled by some non-gentiles who know exactly what to say and do to keep the poor ignorant gentiles on a leash.
It's quite simple...the poor ignorant gentile christian relies on non-gentile to give a "true" interpretation of the non-gentile books upon which they rely to prove the validity of their mangod..
The non-gentiles reject that mangod and according to the non gentile books the mangod was cursed and got rid of and the mangod is in hell immersed in poo..
Now how comical does one wish to make this relationship?
