Shalom Seraphine sir/ma'am; with all due respect I must emphatically disagree with you. I was just trying to see if it would make you alert yourself to the word, hence, do a bit of digging. The word 'Amen' is in no way, shape or form Hebrew. Yisra'el (Israel) fell into paganism several times and suffered the consequences. When israel left babylon, they left with a lot of strange beliefs including the pagan Babylonian calendar. When they were redeemed from Egypt, it was the same and again it cost them.
Amen is a derivitive of Amun as in Amun-Ra, a marriage between a sun deity Ra and the deity from Thebes called Amun. It was the chief or dominant god in the Egyptian pantheon during the new kingdom with the exception of when Ankhenaten (Aten/Aton [the sun-disc]) became Pharaoh. Amun is the same as Amen just as Aten and Aton are the same. It ends a sentence, chant, prayer or certain sacrifices in the paying of homage to the pagan deity Amun. So while it may be used in Judaism to some extent, the word is hardly Hebrew in its origin. Hallel-u-Yah(weh) is an entirely different story.
:)
Shalom!

Bonsoir mon ami, thank you for the correction I am not a practioner of Juadaism and I must confess my historical knowledge of the subject is limited somewhat Sora my soulmate is more proficient at this subject than I ever will or could be. I am willing to admit I do not know everything nor do I wish to, what I do enjoy is learning from other people and correcting my errors whatever they may be so thank you for this. If you could share more in regards to what you do know of Judaism I would appreciate it very much. I am a female by the way and please call me Seraphine. Shalom!

<quoted text>
Well my source is usually the bible, but there are many websites and books that could help you sort it out. None comes to mind at the moment, but when one does then I will mention it/them.
I like what Peter says about the writings of Paul, which is a bit unusual that he said it but the words are logical:
2 Peter 3:15-16 (NKJV)
15 and consider that the longsuffering of our Lord is salvation—as also our beloved brother Paul, according to the wisdom given to him, has written to you, 16 as also in all his epistles, speaking in them of these things, in which are some things hard to understand, which untaught and unstable people twist to their own destruction, as they do also the rest of the Scriptures.
********
Paul says something crucial here that speaks to and about a lot of people, especially those that rebel or find excuses not to try to keep the Commandments:
Romans 8:6-7 (NKJV)
6 For to be carnally minded is death, but to be spiritually minded is life and peace. 7 Because the carnal mind is enmity against God; for it is not subject to the law of God, nor indeed can be.
********
I also like this:
Colossians 3:5-9 (NKJV)
5 Therefore put to death your members which are on the earth: fornication, uncleanness, passion, evil desire, and covetousness, which is idolatry. 6 Because of these things the wrath of God is coming upon the sons of disobedience, 7 in which you yourselves once walked when you lived in them.
8 But now you yourselves are to put off all these: anger, wrath, malice, blasphemy, filthy language out of your mouth. 9 Do not lie to one another, since you have put off the old man with his deeds,
********
So Paul does say some very solid things which seem true to form according to the things an Apostle is expected to say.
Now read this scriptural pasage on your own time, for it is the pivotal passage. It explains Paul while also making him seem as if to say, or people interpret him as saying that the Law is to none effect and it is now just grace through faith.
> Galatians 2:11-21 <
*******
Now I believe based on how his words were eventually structured, it makes him out to be one who doesn't agree with Jewry nor the upkeep of the Law, couple with the fact that he mostly had Greek friends and set up places of worship in Greco-Roman territories and also normally found himself among the gentiles.
Now several translations structure his words differently, to make it seems as if he advocates this new Roman religion Christianity and not Hebraic-Messianism, or "The Way" which was still keeping many of the Moeds and feasts of the Jews but accepting Yashua Ha-Mashiach as the way to salvation and not the Law. The way I understand it is that the law humbles us and shows up our unrighteousness and filthiness before Yahweh (barack be He) and then turns us to Christ. The Law is also a reminder that we are imperfect, thus when we sklip in adhering to the Law we have an advocate. If the Law were of none effect, then many people just like many Christians today would believe it doesn't matter what they do because they are baptized and therefore saved....a one way ticket to paradise. This is a wicked teaching that will lead many to the flaming maelstrom of eternal deletion. I think what I said above should suffice, at least for now.

I couldn't agree more.

BROTHER LEE.....I am going to tread lightly here as I don't want to rock the boat too much after the last few weeks but Hebrews,Phillipians, Ecclesiates, Peter, Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John are just some of the books the message is repeated. Basically in every writing but those of Paul. While I still strongly believe we had different authors for a reason and everybody had their own story to tell and that by looking at everything together we get the complete picture, I do think it is important to consider why we have the New Testament and what it teaches and to whom. The entire NT teaches forgiveness of sins through the blood of Christ. It teaches the shift from Law to Grace. And it shows what is required of children of God and the commandments we are under. Would so many books teach things that apply today while also including things that do not apply today? Would the Holy Spirit remind us of teachings that never applied to us? IMHO either we are under the NT or not. Partly doesnt make sense to me (T) PEACE

Good evening all.
Got home form the Hospital a couple hours ago and had some time to pop in here so I thought I would. All went well with my surgery. The implant of the ICD device went smoothly and wasn't to intrusive. It only took about an hour and a half.
I pretty much slept through most of the procedure and don't recall much from the time that the Doctor walked into the surgical unit to the time that I woke up still in the unit just as they were getting ready to wheel me to my room. I've had some expected pain around the area where the device was implanted but nothing overwhelming, and as each hour passes the pain gets better.
I'll check beck later. Have a great evening. God bless.
(((((((John)))))))))) Glad that is behind you ! I hope that you are not having excessive pain brother.

Take it easy and repair <3

The Samaritan Torah? Never heard of it before you mentioned it. I know the Samaritals were Hebrew/Israel but many looked down upon them as lesser it seems. Do you have this book?

A good book on the subject, but pricey is available here:

....It sounded to me like you dont consider Yawheh a God (Higher then a God) but leave open the possibility that there are Gods, otherwise why mention Gods at all?.........
It sounds much like the Tao Te Ching.."If there are gods, even they flowed from Tao."

Tao is not a 'deity', if there are 'deities' they are less than Tao.

<quoted text>I understand better if you are basing it more on the beliefs of others than comparing it the god you believe in.....
It becomes difficult because I do not believe God is a supernatural being. I have books anout electricity and they are very accurate and helpful but I do not have to pretend that said books were written by "Electra". However, I can say they were "inspired" by electricity and based on both reality and theories of men... and incomplete as well.

Today's Prayer
"These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world" (John 16:33). O dear Father, you know the tribulations I have faced and will face. Thank you for giving me hope in the face of these trials and temptations! Please bring this Scripture to my mind whenever I am feeling down due to whatever may come. I am so happy and thankful that you have overcome the world and given me hope and a future. Because of your power and love and sacrifice, I too can overcome the world! You give me joy and cheer and initiative to keep moving forward. You are my greatest inspiration and encouragement, and I love you. In Jesus' name I come to you, amen.

Prime time with God
