(David Gornoski) A problem people have when thinking about the lasting legacy of Jesus is the tendency to either objectify him as a ticket into a spiritual in-crowd status or dismiss him as a religious ascetic wholly incapable of relevancy for politics and world affairs. That’s because they’re Enlightenment rationalists that compartmentalize his life into a religious ideology to possess rather than a performative revolution in how humans can be with each other.
To understand the spiritual revolution Jesus began we must study his life and imitate his model in our daily affairs.
“Speak and so do as those who will be judged by the Law of Liberty.” – Yaaqob 2:12
Reject the fearful, cowardly mob mentality that fuels the cult of human sacrifice! Bravely embrace the personal responsibility and accountability of Individual Sovereignty inherent to a peaceful, free, diverse, and cooperative society!

My Commentary: Shabath Shalum! Happy Pesach! Halalu Yahusha, our Mashiach, for making the ultimate sacrifice to expose the murderous, torturous slave-system of the Accuser before the eyes of the whole Earth, for all generations to witness, in the Name of Yahuwah! Baruk Ha’Shem Yahuwah!

My Commentary: When it comes to 2000+ year old democracy… Yahuwah, you are not the father. 😉 Ha!

Stephen K.: Your thoughts, Rayn? Do they make sense?

Rayn: The above inscription looks to be written mostly in Middle Semitic “Moabite” script, which is a very slight variation of Middle Semitic “Paleo-Hebrew” that holds many of the same exact characters. The reason I believe it to be this particular Semitic script is because it’s the only one I know of that writes out the letter “waw” (“ו” in modern Hebrew) like a “Y,” and the letter “kaph” (“כ” and “ך” in modern Hebrew) like a “Y” with an extra branch emerging from the center (imagine a “☮ ,” minus the circle, and turned 180°). However, the letter “hhet” (now called “chet” and written as “ח” in modern Hebrew) and the letter “sin,” (now called “samekh” and written as “ס” in modern Hebrew) are both written in Paleo-Hebrew, instead of Moabite. Meanwhile the “lam” (now called “lamed” and written as “ל” in modern Hebrew) often jumps between Moabite and Early Semitic “Ancient Hebrew”…(Click Here to Continue Reading This Post) →
