"Passion" Should Highlight Christian Jewish Difference
February 1, 2004
Mel Gibson's The Passion of Christ (opening Feb 25) has the potential to become a major cultural turning point by focusing attention on the fundamental difference between Christianity and Judaism.
Since the Holocaust, Christians have blurred their beliefs for fear of seeming anti-Semitic. But Jesus and the Pharisees had a deadly enmity. This antagonism is the essence of Christianity and cannot be denied.
At the same time Gibson's film might inspire Jews to take a hard look at Judaism.
Gibson's graphic depiction of the Crucifixion apparently evokes an intense religious experience. It comes at a time when millions are awakening to the fact that a malignant force controls the U.S. and casts its shadow across the world.
People will recognize this power as the same one responsible for the Crucifixion. This is a combination of worldly and spiritual control, "Roman" and Pharisee respectively.
Nothing has changed in 2000 years. If Christ were alive today, he would be assassinated.
Indeed, the same force would love to crucify Mel Gibson. They will do so financially by "sandbagging" his movie. They will spin it as "anti-Semitic" or as a Christian curiosity. There will be few Oscar nominations.
Who are "they" ?
The Occult Conspiracy consists of a broad range of elitists who do not want God's plan to be the foundation of society. They seem to be united in the worship of Lucifer, the symbol of cosmic rebellion against God.
Luciferians believe they can do whatever they please, no matter if it is decadent or immoral. They call this freedom. They have redefined reality according to their own self-interests and perversions. Their self-deification is the ultimate idolatry.
They maintain their control over mankind by provoking wars, which are also very profitable. They instigated the heinous 9-11 attack as a pretext to launch a bogus "War on Terror" designed to set up a police state to deter resistance to globalism.
Both George W. Bush and John Kerry belong to a Luciferian (Illuminati) lodge at Yale called the "Skull and Bones." Bush's code name was "Temporary" and he would be happy to relinquish control to his lodge brother so Americans can continue to enjoy the charade of democracy.
Notwithstanding the many different players, a casual observer cannot ignore the critical role Pharisee Jews have in the New World Order.
For example, Pharisee bankers financed both The New York Times (Jacob Schiff) and The Washington Post (Eugene Meyer), and use them to manipulate the public. They seem to control the major TV networks, movie studios and book publishers as well. They have a stranglehold on Americans' perception of reality. Mel Gibson's The Passion of Christ is a rare presentation of a Christian point of view.
Before I continue, I want to be perfectly clear that I believe all people are God's creation. We don't need to understand oxygen to breath it. We all have a Divine soul no matter if we are atheists.
In my view, anyone who sincerely craves universal brotherhood, absolute justice and truth is expressing the Divine Spirit.
THE JEWISH NEED FOR SELF EXAMINATION
For many Jews, Israel and the Holocaust have become a substitute for religion. The reason is that Judaism is flawed. Many Jews like myself are not attracted to it.
Judaism has been hijacked. Judaism was originally based on Moses' vision of God as a universal moral force. The Sadducees upheld this view but the Pharisees overthrew them in a civil war in 79 BC. The remnants of the Sadducees, "Torah Jews" still cling to Moses and the Old Testament but they are a minority.
Phariseeism is based on the Talmud, which consists of the interpretations of "sages" during the Babylonian exile 586 BC to 1040 AD. Generally speaking, the Talmudists contradict the spirit of Moses and take precedence over the Torah.
The Universal Jewish Encyclopaedia (1943) declares that Judaism is synonymous with Phariseeism: "The Jewish religion as it is today traces its descent, without a break, from the Pharisees.... the study of the Talmud is essential for any real understanding of Phariseeism." (p.474)
JESUS FOLLOWS MOSES
Jesus was in the tradition of Moses. He reproached unbelieving Jews: " If you believed Moses, you would believe me, for he wrote of me." ((John 5:24-27)
Jesus reviled the Pharisees as "hypocrites" and a "generation of vipers." He said they nullified God's Commandments "teaching for doctrines the commandments of men." (Mark 7:6-8)
He accused them of worshipping the devil: "Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do." (John 8:44)
In the February issue of Culture Wars, a bold and brilliant Catholic thinker E. Michael Jones states that the real followers of Moses are the people who accept Christ.
Who then are the people who claim to be the Jews? Jones answers:
"Revelations 3:9 answers the question by [saying] those 'who call themselves Jews but are liars' [are] the 'synagogue of Satan.' In other words, the group that was called by God to prepare the way for the Messiah rejected the Messiah and in doing that, became over the course of the ensuing centuries a group that defined itself as anti-Christian.... "
Jones concludes: "The Jews who reject Christ now prepare the way for the coming of the anti-Christ.... what comes of this group is the opposite of salvation, namely the work of Satan..."
Isaiah's prophecy seems to confirm Jones' conclusion: "Thou shall be called by a new name, which the mouth of the Lord shall name...and you shall leave your name for a curse unto my chosen, for the lord God shall...call his servants by another name." (62:2; 65:15)
More than the Protocols of Zion, the Talmud is proof that the Pharisees have a secret agenda. No one can claim this is a forgery. Elizabeth Dilling, (1894-1966) is a courageous Christian whose visit to Soviet Russia in 1931 prompted a 20-year study of Judaism.
In her book The Jewish Religion: Its Influence Today (1964) she reproduces 300 pages from the Talmud and Jewish Encyclopaedias. You can examine it on line and form your own opinion.
What follows is very distasteful and shocking. I take no pleasure in presenting Dilling's conclusions. However, if they are true, they are too important to ignore. The devil operates by deceiving and corrupting good people.
According to Dilling, the Talmud is founded on the assumption of Jewish superiority.
"The non-Jew ranks as an animal, has no property rights and no legal rights under any code whatever... "Milk the Gentile" is the Talmudic rule but don't get caught in such a way as to jeopardize Jewish interests. Summarized, Talmudism is the quintessence of distilled hatred and discrimination, without cause, against non-Jews." (16)
The Talmud is characterized by "obscenity and more obscenity, a setting up of laws seemingly for the purpose of inventing circumventions, and evasions; delight in sadistic cruelty; reversal of all Biblical moral teachings on theft, murder, sodomy, perjury, treatment of children and parents; insane hatred of Christ, Christians and every phase of Christianity." (4)
It characterizes the Virgin Mary as a "harlot" and adulteress and Jesus as a "bastard" and sexual pervert who was crucified as a "blasphemer of Pharisee Judaism." Jesus' punishment was to be" lowered into dung up to his armpits" and then strangled. Christians in hell are punished by "hot boiling excrement." (14)
The Talmud rejects Moses' vision of God as a moral force. Its basic doctrine is that "God is the "En Sof" a nature essence which has no attributes and can neither know nor be known. That is atheism..." (57)
Drilling quotes the Jewish Encyclopaedia 1905: "God is the infinite, unlimited being to whom one neither can nor may attribute any attributes whatever." ("Cabala", p.472.)
"So called Judaism is nothing but Babylonian Talmudic Pharisaism, which at base is crass paganism, pantheistic atheism, a conglomeration of all the forms of paganism concocted through the centuries. New descriptions concocted for this very old Satanism, such as... [Marx's] dialectical materialism merely [dresses] up old pagan concepts." (38)
"The Jewish Cabala with its non-existence of evil, its deification of man, is a source book of modern 'isms." (31)
I doubt if 10 per cent of Jews today are aware of this aspect of the Talmud. I certainly wasn't. Most Jews are not observant. A 1970's survey found that less than 50% felt it was necessary to believe in God to be a "good Jew." Most see themselves as "secular humanists." It's about time we all realized that this nebulous ideology is Luciferian in nature.
The Talmud is undoubtedly the answer to the riddle of anti-Semitism. Dilling writes:
"The attitude resulting from such teachings has been resented by non-Jews in all countries and centuries. Such resentment, however, is always portrayed by Jews as "persecution of the Jews." (2)
Of course most Jews do not feel this way. Most would be happy to live and let live. But other Jews who believe they are an elite unfettered by the social contract use them as a Trojan horse. (See "The Jewish Century")
I wish everything Dilling says were untrue. It makes me heartsick to think that Pharisee Jews play a leading role in establishing the New World Order. Unfortunately we cannot tailor the facts to fit our wishes or amour propre.
I am going to be called an anti-Semite or self-hater. I think it's obvious that I subscribe to the authentic Jewish tradition, that of Moses, Isaiah and Jesus. It's obvious that "anti-Semitism" is used to disarm and stigmatize opponents of Pharisees' evil hegemony.
Hopefully Mel Gibson's The Passion of Christ will inspire both Christians and Jews to re-examine their beliefs and prompt a much needed religious revival. We all must follow Jesus' example and resist evil.
"Hate the evil and love the good, and establish judgement in the gate," said the prophet Amos (5:15)
Christians have no desire to inaugurate a new era of religious conflict. Evangelist Billy Graham said, "The film is faithful to the Bible's teaching that we are all responsible for Jesus' death, because we have all sinned."
He is right. The sin is that we refuse to uphold God and make Him the centre of our life.
The Pharisees and their allies have deliberately distorted and mystified God to make Him seem unknowable.
In my view, God refers to spiritual ideals such as justice, truth, goodness and love that have an objective existence and constitute Reality. We enter into His Kingdom by bringing these ideals to life.
Jesus upheld this Divine Reality. We have no option but to embody it. The alternative is arrested development, perversion, deceit, despair, war and tyranny.
We must decide if we belong to God or to Lucifer because that will be our destiny. The world is a cosmic struggle for the soul of mankind and this struggle is reaching a climax.
