The Chosen People and Gentiles

Let’s address the Chosen and Goyim topics today…

Something I often hear White Nationalists whine about is that Jews call non-Jews “cattle,” or “goyim.” Ok, so let’s talk about what Goy means.

So, What Does Goy/Goyim Mean?

Goy is Hebrew for nation. Goyim means people of the nation. Jews are goyim of Israel.

Goyim looks like this in Hebrew: לְאוֹם

What Is Hebrew For Cattle?

Beamah is Hebrew for cattle. It looks like this in Hebrew: בְּעִיר

Do we have that straight? Good.

How Is Goy/Goyim Used?

There is nothing insulting about the word “goy.” Also, it should be noted that Torah refers to the Jewish people using the term “goy.” In Exodus 19:6, G-d says that the Children of Israel will be “a kingdom of priests and a holy nation,” that is, a goy kadosh. Kadosh is the Hebrew word for holy.

Anyway, the term is no more insulting than the word “gentile.”

Orgin of The “Chosen” People

Judaism maintains that the righteous people will have a place in the world to come aka Heaven. This has been the majority rule since the days of the Talmud. Judaism generally recognizes that Christians worship the same G-d that we do. Those who follow the tenets of their religions can be considered righteous in the eyes of G-d.

Judaism does not believe that Jews are better than other people. We do not believe that G-d chose the Jews because of any inherent superiority. According to the Talmud (Avodah Zarah 2b), G-d offered the Torah to all the nations of the Earth, and the Jews were the only ones who accepted it. In other words, WE chose G-d! The Talmud says that Jews were offered the Torah last, and accepted it only because G-d held a mountain over their heads! (In Ex. 19:17, the words generally translated as “at the foot of the mountain” literally mean “underneath the mountain”!) Another traditional story suggests that G-d chose the Jewish nation because they were the lowliest of nations, and their success would be attributed to G-d’s might rather than their own ability. Clearly, these are not the ideas of a people who think they are better than other nations. (Taken from a wonderful source: http://www.jewfaq.org/gentiles.htm)

Being “Chosen”

Because we chose to accept Torah, Jews have a unique status in the eyes of G-d, but we lose that special status when we abandon Torah. Also, the blessings that we receive by accepting the Torah come with a price. Jews have a greater responsibility than non-Jews. While non-Jews are only obligated to obey the seven commandments given to Noah, Jews are responsible for fulfilling the 613 mitzvot in the Torah, thus G-d will punish Jews for doing things that would not be a sin for non-Jews. And again, non-Jews have as much right to G-d as we do. (Again, Jew FAQ is a great source on this topic: http://www.jewfaq.org/gentiles.htm)

Revelation 2:9 & The Synagogue of Satan

Wow I can write blogs using my new cell phone! Awesome! I’m writing this in Evanston, far away from my laptop!!

I took a sick friend to his church today. Though I am Jewish, I thought it was relevant — about suffering and God. I was happy when the pastor gave a proper explanation of Rev 2:9. Rev 2:9 is often used by Christian Identity idiots to slander the Jewish people and equate us with Satan. (Strange, since we don’t believe there is a Satan but anyway.)

The FULL Text of Revelation 2:9

Rev 2:9 reads: “I know thy works, and tribulation, and poverty, (but thou art rich) and I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan.”

In fact, here is the ENTIRE letter to the Church of Smyrna in Rev 2:8-11:

8And unto the angel of the church in Smyrna write; These things saith the first and the last, which was dead, and is alive;

9I know thy works, and tribulation, and poverty, (but thou art rich) and I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan.

10Fear none of those things which thou shalt suffer: behold, the devil shall cast some of you into prison, that ye may be tried; and ye shall have tribulation ten days: be thou faithful unto death, and I will give thee a crown of life.

11He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; He that overcometh shall not be hurt of the second death.

Christian Identity Misinterpretation of Rev 2:9

Christian Identity idiocy

Christian Identity idiocy

In “christian” identity churches, Rev 2:9 is misquoted as saying that Jewish people are of the synagogue of Satan. They also labor under the delusion that Jewish people are wealthy bc they misquote this “but thou art rich”. Yeah, ok. Then why do I only know Jewish folks who are poor or middle class? (In fact, I know A LOT of broke ass Jews LOL!)

However, John is really talking about people who claim to love God but don’t. God is telling the church of Smyrna to have a relationship with God, NOT to hate Jews or be jealous of fantasy money. I believe that breaks one of the 10 commandments concerning coveting your neighbor’s belongings. I need to write a book exposing Christian Identity for the heresy that it is.

He also mentioned that our churches are misquoted and slandered by the culture, in reference to the Westboro cult. That is actually what CIs do, take Scripture and twist it for their own uses. I really hate CI and white nationalists. It’s all a load of crap. LOL you ever see what the people who claim to be part of the “master race” look like and how they live? unemployed, unambitious, tattoo covered, trailer dwelling wife beaters with missing teeth and no future. I feel sorry for their children, especially the girls. There are a handful that look like normal upstanding members of society, but inside are just as ugly. I also find it hysterical that a WN political cult called the NSM follows a self-proclaimed Satanist Chairman named Clifford Herrington but call the Jews they hate part of the synagogue of Satan. Weird. Yet more hypocrisy in the white nationalist movement. Though they are Satanists and satanic in nature. They hate good and roll around in the slop of evil.
