The Truth of Genesis: Living In A Land That Loves A Lie Part 2

I can understand gentiles not understanding the scriptures, but I was very disappointed when the “doctors of the Torah” failed to live up to expectations.

You can find on the internet that the present-day Sanhedrin court in Israel wants to revive the ancient Temple rituals, and make known God’s laws for the people.  Let me give you a quote I found. It is as follows: “Since we know that G-d seeks the acknowledgement of His Being and Unity by all of humanity and since we are to be a “Kingdom of Priests”, does it not follow that we must be perceived as such by the nations to be able, as a Holy (distinct) People, to fulfill G-d’s Ministry as His Priests on earth?

At first I thought that the Sanhedrin was a body of sincere rabbis that wanted to “wake up” Judaism to its true Divine heritage.  I wrote to them, but most of them don’t speak English very well, if at all. Part of my letter to them, contained the following three paragraphs.

The Lord God chose to reveal Himself to (and enter into a covenant of marriage with) the people of Israel.  It has been the duty of the Jewish people to convey to the rest of the world the existence of the Creator.  The nation of Israel is the only sovereignty that has received its constitution from the Eternal Spirit Himself.   The very first written edict we have from God is this statement: “In the beginning, God created this universe, starting with the planet Earth”.

Along with that, we have His declaration that “For in six days, the LORD made the heavens and the Earth, the sea, and all there in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the LORD blessed the Sabbath day, and hallowed it”.  Therefore, the Sabbath day was institutedas a day of rest in acknowledgement of Creation Week, being 168 hours in length.  This is the very foundation of the Holy Scriptures. 

 If the union of the Sanhedrin fails to embrace this fundamental truth, and correctly teach it to the people, they have no authenticity, and their rituals of worship are just a big joke.

So, a rabbi with good understanding of English wrote back.  I wanted to go to Israel to give my Genesis chapter one PowerPoint presentation (“Observations of Moses”) to them in Jerusalem.  It was clear that I could not afford to go, and that I may not be given an audience if I came.  So I sent the presentation to him, and the following was his reply:

Dear Mr. Cummings,

I just finished seeing the PowerPoint presentation. 

WOW!!!

VERY well done, very impressive, plenty to think about. 

I am still bewildered by the ideas, and am awed by your originality.

I am sure that as is, my colleagues will not be able to respond as

favorably as I, first of all because their English is quite inferior.   Please

do not interpret this as saying I agree with what you presented; I am awed,

but have not had time to study the ideas, and am not convinced, just

bewildered and awed. 

Thank you for this opportunity to see this exposition of religious ingenuity. 

I will try to revert when the present flurry of work subsides. 

Sincerely,

Rabbi — —

I crossed out his name. Now, here comes the kicker.  I pleaded with the rabbi to bring this to the body of the Sanhedrin, test it with the literal interpretation of scripture, and either publicly declare it to be in error, or publicly embrace it as the truth of Genesis.  No inconsistencies as to points of scriptural error were found.  But neither did the Sanhedrin publicly embrace it as the truth, or to be the best explanation, of Genesis.  If they did so, then all the writings of the rabbinical patriarchy and the Talmud concerning the “creation accounts” in the Torah must be declared to be in error, and the revered scholars would be exposed as being ignorant of the text, and of the Law of Moses. So they chose to table it indefinitely (to kill it), because we’re living in a land that loves a lie.

Next, my continued efforts with the gentiles

Part Three

 

About the Author

- Herman Cummings is a computer data analyst, who used his training to analyze the written text of Genesis. On EasterSunday, in 1990, a lady stood up in Sunday School and asked the pastor “How can I teach my children about Adam & Eve, when all they are taught is evolution in school?”. The pastor could only say “Just believe the Bible”. That was of no help to the lady. So Herman Cummings began his research to resolve the issue, since the worlds of Creationism and Theology could not literally reconcile Genesis with scientific reality. After receiving the revelation of the first chapter from the Lord in December 1993, Herman Cummings became the world’s leading expert on the book of Genesis (Bereshit).
