  1. I'm positive this was brought up before, but let's go over this one more time. In the Exodus 3:14, G-d says that he is Eheyeh asher Eheyeh - I will be what I will be. There is no present tense verb in biblical Hebrew for is/am/are.

    Welcome to the forum. You might want to make the same query at ulc...org.uk Actually there is only one dot after ulc, but if I do it correctly it does not come out correct. Don't ask. L'shalom.
  3. Maybe I missed an important message, but I've been used to going to ulc.net and then clicking on "Forums" to get to the forum. Imagine my surprise going to ulc.net and finding a new home page and no link, as far as I can tell, to get to the forum. Only because I googled " ulc.net forum" did I find the way back here. How will new folks know the forum exists?
  4. Apparently what you know of the PharIsees and the Sadducees would fit into a thimble and still leave room for your finger. Of course, I could be wrong and you've actually spent a considerable amount of time studying both and are prepared to discuss at length - and please feel free to take as much space as is necessary - and in detail, the research that lead you to your present conclusions.
  5. The English word "priest" does not mean bridge. And the Hebrew word "kohayn" does not mean bridge either.
  6. Putting aside the issue that neither is G-d a male, apparently you have never read Jewish scripture, the Tanakh, what you would probably call the Old Testament, in Hebrew. As best as I recall, there is only one instance where a female pages deity is referred as a deity. In that instance the Tanakh uses the same word to refer to her as is used to refer to G-d - elohey.
  7. What a hate filled site you referenced.
  8. Before saying anything else I must say I'm curious. You've previously written that you are a Pagan so why this attempt at Christian prayer? What are you trying to accomplish?

    Hebrew Roots

    Hebrew Roots is a Christian movement.

    You may be waiting quite awhile for a reply. It's now more than 8 years since the poster last signed on to the forum.
  11. The Sarducci, as in Guido??? Independent of how they are portrayed in Christian scripture, what do you really know about the Sadducees and the Pharisees?

    Here's an experiment, Phillipe - Take a chair and break the legs off. Advertise that you have four chairs to sell. See how many takers you get. You can then let us know the results

    Sufficiency of Scripture

    And here I've been concerned that I might appear too brusque. Sheesh! Now I'm going to have redo my response. Thanks guys. (The spotlight follows the rabbi as he slowly exits stage right, all the while muttering under his breath.)

    Sufficiency of Scripture

    Mindful of my role as a member of this community and mindful of my responsibility as a mentor I have been wrestling with the right words to use to respond to the OP - words that would reach the OP and would not be seen as hurtful and uncharitable. I'm not sure those words exist, but the path these threads have been following demand I say something. Shabbat is approaching and, again, there is the expectation that I will be in the synagogue for services, so again I ask your indulgence until the end of the Sabbath. L'shalom.

    Feed Your Frankenstein

    I never said you are anti-Semitic. Re-read my post. I do not debate religion for a variety of reasons that I believe I have set forth in the past. If I need to do it again I will. However, I will respond when Jews, Jewish history, or Judaism are maligned or misrepresented. You have done both to all three.... Even if only out of ignorance. And so you and I are not quite done. However,, Shabbat and Pesach fast approach and further conversation will have to wait until after the weekend.
