Dear Rienhard Bonnke,
Thousands of people gathered at En Gedi, Israel, last night, Sept 29, 2010, to hear you deliver “the Gospel.” It was a massive open-air gathering hosted by the International Christian Embassy in Jerusalem (IJEC) and the music, dance, praise and worship atmosphere was nothing short of magnificent. However, after hearing you speak I felt a very strong urge to write you, there were others who inquired about the content and delivery of your message, so, I write for their benefit as well. I pray this letter will not be construed as an attack on your person. I believe the ICEJ tries to base itself on Biblical ground, on the Covenant YHWH gave to Avraham specifically for this land as a sovereign Jewish state, and, for the benefit of all peoples according to “the Scepter” YHWH gave to Yehudah, who is Mashiyach Y’shua.
Mr. Rienhard Bonnke, I understand that as a high profile Christian evangelist from Germany you have made huge inroads into Africa and on other continents. I understand a trail of controversy also follows your ministry, but then anyone trying to build the Kingdom has his or her detractors. However, last night you stood on the platform and based your entire teaching on the fallacious story of the woman caught in adultery from John 8. I was shocked that a man of your public profile and Scriptural knowledge would know that the “woman caught in adultery” is NOT Scripture, it first appears in late 3rd Century texts. John didn’t write it and anyone preaching that he did is speaking a falsehood.
I would have also hoped you would have been more considerate of the hundreds of Israelis who were listening to your message and the thousands of Christians who attended and who will hear your message online in the future, who also know that what you taught was un-Scriptural and simply stroking the old religious emotional flesh.
The tale of the woman caught in adultery does not occur in any ancient Aramaic or Greek texts, it surfaces approximately 200 years after Yochanan’s (John) death! So it was disheartening and saddening, coming from such a high profile person as yourself, who plays such a vital role in the lives of many Christians, that you haven’t considered how such a fabrication has been the cause of anti-Semitism, anti-Torah rebellion and anti-Messiah teaching within the Church. I will briefly discuss this in a moment, but Mr. Rienhard Bonnke, you also clearly misunderstand and you misinformed your audience about 2 Corinthians 5:21 which reads:
“For he hath made him [to be] sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.” (KJV)
Notice the KJV inserted the words [to be] in brackets, the American Standard Version reads:
“Him who knew no sin he made [to be] sin on our behalf; that we might become the righteousness of God in him.”
The problem was manifold, first of all, the Greek New Testament uses the word hamartia (sin), but notice that the NIV inserts a footnote by hamartia, stating “or, be a sin offering”. Mr. Bonnke, there is a VAST difference between becoming SIN and being a sin OFFERING!
The Aramaic New Testament reads:
הַו גֶּיר דּלָא יָדַֿע הוָא חטִיתָֿא מֶטֻלָתֿכֻֿון חטִיתָֿא עַבֿדֶּה דַּחנַן נֶהוֶא בֶּה זַדִּיקֻותָֿא דַּאלָהָא
Here we can clearly see that Paul is using a very common Hebraic term (chatta’ah or chatta’th) which is translated 182 times as “sin” and 116 times as “sin offering” in the Tanakh (Torah-Neviim-Ketuvim / the Old Testament). I could provide you the 116 times this occurs, but I’m trying to keep this short and sweet.
How could any Christian ever imagine that their perfect, sinless Savior, became sin itself? How could the Almighty YHWH make His own Son become sin? That is a foolish conclusion and it’s downright shameful to teach such an erroneous thing. Even a novice Bible student knows there is something wrong with such teaching. The sad thing was you also stated the obvious, when you asked your audience, “who among them hadn’t sinned”, the response was, “all of us have sinned” but then you shot back to everyone, “I’m disappointed in you”, then you preached, “Jesus hasn’t sinned!” Really Mr. Rienhard Bonnke? You just finished saying that he became sin, can you not see the rhetoric and double-mindedness in such teaching of yours?
Then Mr. Reinhard Bonnke, you advanced a cleverly crafted catharsis with, “she looked into Jesus’ eyes and saw there was no sin” and she saw her own guilt in his perfection. No Mr. Rienhard Bonnke, Mashiyach could never “become sin” and also have sinless eyes in the same breath, that’s deception, trickery and simply playing religious politics. This kind of confusion and rhetoric is misguided, but it’s not only you Mr. Reinhard Bonnke that has been smitten with such foolishness, I dare say most seminarians I’ve met haven’t got past it, they are ignorant of the charter that undergirds the “New Testament”, which is called Torah, the Word of YHWH or… the first part of the Bible.
Also, and surely you know that Scripture demands two or three witnesses to establish Truth, we do NOT have any other witness in Scripture to say that Mashiyach became sin, but, we have plenty of evidence in both Tanakh and Brit Chadasha that Mashiyach became a sin offering:
Otherwise, he must have suffered many times since the commencement of the world; but now in the end of the world, he has once offered himself in a self-sacrifice to abolish sin. Hebrews 9:26
He did no sin; neither was any deceit found in his mouth. 1 Peter 2:22
For in dying, he died for sin once; and in living, he lives to Elohim. Romans 6:10
Be therefore imitators of Elohim as beloved children: And walk in love; as the Mashiyach also has loved us and has given up himself for us, an offering and a sacrificeto Elohim, for a sweet aroma. Ephesians 5:1-2
What may seem like a minor and unimportant thing to you or others, has extremely deep real-life implications. Marcion (110-160 AD) shaped modern systematic Christian theology by coining the words; Old and New Testament. Marcion taught that the Father, the God of the Old Testament, was a cruel and wrathful God, but that the God of the New Testament was full of Love, Grace and Mercy. Sure you must believe such teaching is absurd and wicked, but it was Marcion who planted those pagan ideals deep within the Gentile Christian church. Marcion believed that Jesus became sin, that sin cut him off from the Father and in the resurrection Jesus became the one true God, which is pure pagan thinking.
In reality the Father’s love for His Son Y’shua was so powerful that He turned His eyes away from looking upon His beloved Son’s suffering, as it were for a brief moment. YHWH did not turn Himself away from His son Mr. Bonnke. YHWH did not reject His Son. YHWH did not literally heap our sins upon His Son to make him become sin! His Son became our Redeemer and with his blood purchased our freedom. If anyone thinks that a loving Heavenly Father turned His beloved son into sin they should be looking for another God to serve!
The point is, men like Marcion invented another version of God called Jesus, so they could ditch both the Father YHWH and the Old Testament in exchange for the image of their newly constructed deity. This was happening in Paul’s day, which is why he wrote:
For if he that comes to you, had proclaimed to you another Y’shua, whom we have not proclaimed; or if you had received another Spirit, which you have not received; or another gospel, which you have not accepted; you might well have given your permission. 2 Corinthians 11:4
It is not unusual for Christian leaders to be unskilled in original Hebrew and Aramaic Scripture, granted the Greek New Testament has serious minefields that have mislead Bible students for nearly two millennia, an example that relates to this topic is in John 15:22 where the KJV reads:
“If I had not come and spoken unto them, they had not had sin: but now they have no cloke for their sin.”
The NIV, NLT, ESV, NASB, ISV, GWT, ASV, DRB, DBT, ERV, WNT, WEB, etc, all translate this as: “they have no excuse for sin”
The original Aramaic reads:
If I had not come and spoken to them, they would have no sin, but now they have no holocaust upon the face of their sin. John 15:22 (AENT)
This is an Aramaic idiomatic construct literally translated here, as upon the face of their sin, which means – “Their sin is left uncovered.” As a footnote in the AENT explains; Greek translators confused the word Alatha (Offering, Sacrifice, Holocaust, and Oblation) with Altha (Excuse, Pretext.) Y’shua said “Their sin is left uncovered” not, “Their sin is without excuse.” There never is an excuse for sin as you Mr. Bonnke and I’m sure most Christians would agree.
The sad thing is that a carnally minded soul could read this terribly translated verse and conclude that before they became Christians they had an excuse to sin and then after they accepted Jesus sin was simply less of an option. The foolishness of such thinking (and I’m confronted with it regularly in my ministry) is that if mankind ever had an excuse for sin, we wouldn’t need a savior, would we? Y’shua’s blood and sufferings would have been wasted, if, we had an excuse for sin. Did the Israelites have an excuse for sin? Did Ananias and Sapphira have an excuse for sin? Did Judas have an excuse? Do you have an excuse, Mr. Bonnke? Tell me about it. No, it’s plain and simple to understand that many Bibles violate the original intended meaning.
Then Mr. Reinhard Bonnke, you went on to fantasize, fabricate and judge the inner thoughts and hearts of certain imaginary Pharisees, from the imaginary tale of John 8. You were exceedingly dramatic Mr. Rienhard Bonnke, on occasion you pulled up your pant legs to demonstrate how the Pharisees, one by one, saw themselves as GUILTY and pulled up their cloaks and walked away after hearing… he who is without sin let him cast the first stone. I looked over the faces of the people you were speaking to, they were mesmerized. Mr. Reinhard Bonnke, you are their hero evangelist, you had smitten them with your very charismatic spirit, like deer in the headlights their minds turned off and they trusted you and listened and believed. Don’t get me wrong. I don’t have the spectacular delivery that you do, but I appreciate your speaking gift for what it is. I admire that you use your creative talents to try to bring people into the Kingdom, but why not pour on your charm with the Truth my friend?
Please let me explain why such a teaching is wickedness. First, as every true and honest Bible student knows, the passage you preached doesn’t exist in the original Aramaic text (or the four earliest Greek texts) and therefore MUST NEVER be preached as Scripture. Secondly, please look at the particulars of that fallacious story. There is NO WAY Mashiyach could have possibly judged such a matter of such a woman caught in adultery. The Pharisees would never be so foolish as to propose Mashiyach act as Rosh Beit Din (Head House Judge) in a cunningly devised trap as the fairy tale suggests, and as you preach, please look at a few facts:
1) Torah requires that a judge must not hear one litigant in the absence of the other, both parties must be present at a hearing of evidence (Exodus 23). Where is the man who she committed adultery with? Who was he?
2) Torah requires that both the man and the woman be equally punished (Leviticus 20:10). Where is the man who is also just about to get stoned?
3) Torah requires that at least 2 witnesses of the alleged crime be brought forth (Deuteronomy 17:6). Where are the witnesses? If there were two witnesses the matter would have already been decided by the Pharisee’s court.
4) Torah requires that the witnesses to the sin be the ones to cast the first stone (Deuteronomy 17:7). The witnesses would have violated both the Torah and their own deeply embedded tradition to ask Mashiyach to provide his pronouncement of punishment against the poor woman.
Mr. Bonnke, do you not understand that this false teaching is an attack on Y’shua as Mashiyach. Mashiyach would not, could not, break his Father’s Word and engage in such nonsense! He could not fairly judge the matter under the circumstances, which means there could be no trial in the first place, more evidence to tell us the whole thing was a farce.
The social and religious ramifications of the story are staggering, not the least are matters of woman’s rights. Jews and Christians live within a male-dominated society where many would flatly accept that a woman could be dragged up on charges of adultery without her co-accused. It’s easy to point fingers at the big bad Pharisees Mr. Rienhard Bonnke and I’m certain this was one of the motivations behind such a fallacy, but, in a general sense, such a fairy tale inserted into the heart of the Gospels also breeds contempt for women’s rights. It breeds contempt for Torah which the Pharisees claim as the foundation of their traditions… although we all know that’s not really the case.
The story of the woman caught in adultery is in very sharp contrast to the account of “Ananias and Sapphira” (Acts 5:1-10) who bore false witness regarding a property they sold. In Acts 5, this couple lied publicly in the name of Y’shua and was struck down dead for making a mockery of the true Faith. The woman caught in adultery suffered no consequences, therefore, Christians immediately theologize that she was forgiven and saved, which makes people feel more relaxed about adultery in their own lives and their churches.
Because of John 8, Christian leaders teach that adulterers are forgiven and need not make restitution. There are no consequences in many Christian circles for adultery, which is why when Pastors, Priests and “Reverends” commit adultery and all manner of evil sex crimes, they can continue right along with their “ministries” as if hardly anything happened. “He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her” is simply theological abuse and trickery. Every one of us is fallible and has sinned to one degree or another, but Christian theologians spin this to teach that none of us should ever judge sin. There is also a dependency upon church hierarchy to forgive sin, which popularized Christianity and made the Catholic Church the wealthiest organization on Earth because everyone knows that it’s tough to go through life without sinning.
There are plenty other laws in Scripture, and Jewish law derived from Scripture, that we could cite regarding arraigning someone on charges that could potentially lead to the death penalty. The point is that even a novice Bible student would smell a fly in the ointment, but you Mr. Reinhart Bonnke charged forward with a false teaching that is very damaging to Mashiyach and to all the Household of Faith. This issue is covered in the Appendix of the Aramaic English New Testament (AENT) “Woman of John 8″ page 1050-1052 (www.aent.org).
A two-pronged demon arises out of the heretical John 8 teaching. First of all, did YHWH give capital punishment solely as a deterrent? and why would He Command capital punishment in the first place? Throughout Scripture, we read that Avinu Malkenu YHWH seeks a kedoshim (Set Apart People) who keep His Commandments with a pure and circumcised heart. The goal of Torah and Mashiyach is Justice, Mercy, and Love, yet modern liberal Christian intellectuals are teaching that capital punishment isn’t a deterrent, and, that it is excessive and cruel punishment in these days of modern enlightenment. The Jesus Seminar has judged YHWH as unfair and they have made Jesus out to be the hero who negates his Father’s Torah. In Marcion-like Christo-Pagan fashion, Protestant Christians are teaching that Jesus reformed his Father’s Torah, that Torah is bad and Jesus is God. Very little consideration is given that Yeshua is the Living Torah, and that he came in His Father’s Name, and that he was Torah Observant, as were all Shlichim (Sent Ones / Apostles) and all original Jewish and Gentile followers.
YHWH loves people more than any judge or jury or justice system of this world. Modern “justice” that abrogates capital punishment and Torah has devalued human life, not elevated it. Our society has become victimized by a humanistic code of law and punishment that says murder and adultery aren’t so bad after all. Today, it is common that men and women who seduce married people for sex are honored in stories, movies, and song, yet, John Chapter 8 is where carnal Christians turn to and show that Jesus let an adulteress walk free and therefore, they also walk free, no culpability, no accountability, no restitution. All that Christians have to do is admit they are guilty and then wipe all their sins off on Jesus. No. That is the root of the false Gospel that Paul spoke of in 2 Corinthians 11:13 and Shimon Kefa spoke of in 2 Peter 2.
The true gospel is YES we are all guilty. Yes, even if someone has never broken any of the 10 Commandments any unclean thoughts of the heart and mind make them culpable. We’ve all “missed the mark” during the course of our lives, but let’s not grieve the Ruach HaKodesh (Set-Apart Spirit) by constantly dwelling on how such big of sinners we all are, that is immature and a denial of the power of the resurrection. The point is that YHWH Himself sent His son Y’shua Mashiyach to provide a more excellent Way and return us to the Father. We are called to be transformed into new creations, putting on the new Spiritual Man, circumcising our hearts, being “born again” and turning to YHWH and living a lifestyle that is pleasing to him, not speaking evil against His Torah and most certainly NOT turning Torah into a disdainful thing!
Mr. Rienhard Bonnke, you waxed on about how you want to empty out hell and fill up heaven, how Mashiyach put a cross in the middle of that broad way that leads to hell. You suggested that Mashiyach would be a loser if haSatan had more people in Hell than Mashiyach had for the Malchut (Kingdom) Elohim. This type of Calvinistic nonsense is foolishness, the false gospel lies at its core. No, Mr. Bonnke, it’s appalling that such things would come out of your mouth!
Mashiyach will potentially lose NOTHING and His Father YHWH will lose nothing! If not one soul made it into the eternal heavenly gates, YHWH would not be culpable or up for judgment by those He created! “Surely your turning of things upside down shall be esteemed as the potter’s clay: for shall, the work say of him that made it, He made me not? or shall the thing framed say of him that framed it, He had no understanding?” (Isaiah 29:16)
The Kingdom isn’t a numbers game Mr. Rienhard Bonnke, such rhetoric is evidence of manipulation and deceitfulness! Rather than employing your charismatic talent to draw emotions from your audiences why not consider their true spiritual needs, to overcome the carnal flesh?
While it’s true that Scripture says that we can do nothing against the truth but for it (2 Corinthians 13:8) let’s make sure we’re on the right side here. There is no big war in Heaven between YHWH and HaSatan as you are leading people to believe, such thinking is derived from paganism and dualism, a product of Babylonian and Greek mythology. YHWH is One and His Name is One. This is why Jews say the Shema three times a day. YHWH animates “the Devil”. YHWH gives haSatan the powers he has. YHWH appoints the boundaries of haSatan’s powers and his abilities. YHWH through His Mashiyach rules and reigns over haSatan, it’s not what you think Mr. Bonnke. But you speak as though you are some great player who is tipping the balances and filling up heaven because of your preaching, sorry, from what I heard last night you may be more of an obstacle for people to enter into the Malchut Elohim than an asset. You preached a false gospel on several levels.
Mr. Rienhard Bonnke, you are employing old-fashioned Calvinist guilt and condemnation on your audiences, and that’s about as dark ages and old school as it gets. Then, Mr. Bonnke, you called upon born-again Christians to accept Jesus? Mr. Bonnke, how many times do Christians have to come forward and accept Christ as their personal Lord and savior? Why don’t you teach the House of Faith how to put off the old carnal flesh once they’ve become Christians rather than take them on the old religious merry go round? Truth be told, it starts with the leadership, the responsibility begins with you having a circumcised heart yourself Mr. Bonnke, and then go and teach and disciple others in the new life in Mashiyach. The NEW COVENANT is clearly written of in Jeremiah, and the main component on our part of the Covenant is to have Torah written upon our hearts, let’s read it:
~Behold, the days come, says Yahweh, that I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel, and with the house of Yehudah: Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day that I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt; which my covenant they broke, although I was an husband unto them, says Yahweh: But this shall be the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel; After those days, says Yahweh, I will put my Torah in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and will be their Elohim, and they shall be my people. And they shall teach no more every man his neighbour, and every man his brother, saying, Know Yahweh: for they shall all know Me, from the least of them to the greatest of them, says Yahweh: for I will forgive their iniquity, and I will remember their sin no more. Thus says Yahweh, which gives the sun for a light by day, and the ordinances of the moon and of the stars for a light by night, which divides the sea when the waves thereof roar; Yahweh of Hosts is His Name: If those ordinances depart from before me, says Yahweh, then the seed of Israel also shall cease from being a nation before me forever. Jeremiah 31:31-36
If Christians want to ignore having Torah written upon their hearts then they do so at their own peril. If Christians want to make up their own code of laws and traditions then they have not progressed one step beyond the Pharisees of old. Thankfully, many good Christian people refuse to be manipulated by the rhetoric and religious games. Christians must stand up against old-school emotion based evangelistic methodologies and redeem the time. When we were leaving En Gedi I was delighted to see many others had rejected your strong evangelistic tactics. It’s certainly not that you aren’t passionate and entertaining, the problem is you are doing a great disservice to the Household of Faith by not doing your homework before you speak. There is no way the Ruach HaKodesh would give you an anointing to speak such a message as you did last night. No way will the Holy Spirit lead true Evangelists and Apostles to preach a lie and the Church will never come to it’s fullest potential in Mashiyach by listening to such religious rhetoric.
There is an exceedingly great responsibility on anyone who stands on a platform before YHWH’s people to preach and teach them His ways. The fact is that very few Christians take the time to deeply study the Word for themselves. But such core elements of the Kingdom must never be slighted by a preacher. The fact is that you have shown indifference to Mashiyach and the Word of YHWH by using carnal religious tactics, it might feel good for Christians to have their belief systems stroked, but it is spiritual suicide to go through life without searching the Scriptures for oneself.
Last night Mr. Rienhard Bonnke you also taught that repentance means to “change your mind”. No, Mr. Bonnke! The English word repentance comes from the Hebrew word Teshuva, which means to turn to YHWH and stop sinning. Mr. Bonnke, you gave the classical Christian definition, “change your mind” then you provided the second definition, to “turn back.” Regrettably, Christians have been taught that their core belief in Y’shua will bring them salvation. Please understand, salvation by systematic theology is also the lion’s share of the false gospel!
No theological cerebral acceptance of Y’shua will save anyone. The thief on the cross next to Yeshua didn’t have systematic theological clearance before his name was written into the Book of Life. No, it’s on the merits of Mashiyach alone that any of us receives salvation, nothing more, nothing less. YHWH is Salvation. Yehoshua (Y’shua) is the name of Mashiyach. YHWH saves through Mashiyach. We have an assurance of salvation IF we make teshuva if we repent, and if we live a life in Him and pleasing to Him! Repent means to turn from breaking TORAH!!! Torah means “instruction in righteousness”, but the false gospel says that you can break the Torah and go to heaven. No, YOU CAN’T!
If we do not put on the white robes of Messiah’s righteousness, if we continue in willful sin, if we turn our hearts away from hearing Torah, even our prayer is an abomination to YHWH (Proverbs 28:9). We are called to be as the Five Wise Virgins who stored more oil in their vessels, they lived according to the Ruach HaKodesh by Grace, having Torah written upon their hearts, their vessels were full of righteous living. If Christians are not taught the importance of having Torah written upon their hearts, they will willfully keep breaking Torah and sinning. Those who stop sinning are they who have been empowered by Grace through Faith, NOT of works lest any man should boast, but it is in the receiving of Mashiyach that the Spirit of YHWH changes our nature from the carnal to a spiritual man who desires righteousness to live within.
There is a profound amount of Scripture that teaches us that anyone who willfully sins, AFTER accepting Y’shua as their “Lord and Savior” will not enter into the Kingdom of Heaven:
“For if a man sin voluntarily after he has received a knowledge of the truth, there is no longer a sacrifice which may be offered for sins:” Hebrews 10:26
But they who have once descended to immersion and have tasted the gift from heaven
and have received the Ruach HaKodesh and have tasted the good Word of Elohim and the power of the world to come, cannot again sin and a second time be renewed to repentance; or a second time execute him on a stake and insult the Son of Elohim. Hebrews 6:4-6 (AENT)
It is very clear, Mashiyach provides us atonement to enter into the Kingdom when we are baptized into the Kingdom of Elohim, but then our lives must be transformed by the Ruach HaKodesh. Also notice the huge contrast between the Aramaic and Greek New Testament here. The Greek reads: “once having been enlightened…” This “enlightening” seems logical until we look at Aramaic: “But they who have once descended to immersion…” The difference is acute since baptism is clearly a subject being introduced just two verses earlier. The reason for the Greek redaction to “enlightenment” may well have been due to early Gnostic influence that stressed Mashiyach’s knowledge over his actual power and incarnation of Deity.
In closing and to my brothers and sisters who may think I’m being overly critical of you Mr. Rienhard Bonnke, I base what I’ve written and why I’ve written this letter to you on two Scriptures, first:
With all lowliness of mind and quietness and long-suffering; and that you be forbearing one towards another in love. And be earnest to keep the unity of the Spirit in a bond of peace; So that you may become one body and one Spirit; even as you are called to the one Hope of your calling. There is one Master YHWH, one Faith, and one immersion. One Elohim, Father of all, Who is above all and through all and in all of us. But to every one of us is given grace according to the measure of the gift of Mashiyach. Ephesians 4:2-7 (AENT)
The point is not whether we agree on everything, the point is that we all strive to be One Body with One Spirit regardless of our differences. In the process of Mashiyach harmonizing the souls of all who belong to him we are called to love and respect one another, and lift up one another and learn from each other.
The second passage of Scripture that comes to mind is one that calls each of us to study to show ourselves approved:
For the Jews there were nobler than the Jews of Thessalonica; and they gladly heard the word from them daily, and searched from the Scriptures whether these things were so. Acts 17:11
It’s not only that we must search the Scriptures, but nowadays it’s also what version of “Scripture” we search, why read commentary on the original teachings of Y’shua when you can study and learn the original? The only Scripture Jewish followers of Y’shua had was Tanakh. In 48 CE Matthew was written, it wasn’t until 65-70 CE that Luke and John were written. Everything that was needed to confirm Y’shua as haMashiyach is written in Tanakh and the bridge between Tanakh and the New Testament was in Aramaic, not Greek. According to most Christians, Mashiyach Y’shua is the only founder of a world religion who didn’t have his message written in the language he originally spoke. Anyone who is dedicating their lives to preach the Gospel would be very well served to take some time and learn about the original Faith which was Once Delivered.
Now is not the time for indifference towards the New Testament and the original Aramaic based Gospel message. I pray that you will have the courage to preach Mashiyach and teach Torah upon the heart for both Jews and Gentiles, not the modern religious version that abrogates righteous discipline by a fuzzy-feel-good religion, no, let’s call for a return to the original Gospel, the pre-Constantine, pre-Ignatius, pre-Marcion and pre-Tertullian Gospel which was Once Delivered to the righteous.
The pagan friendly version of the Gospel of Jesus Christ is not preparing the Bride of Mashiyach for his return, we can do better.
I pray you will take these matters to heart.
YHWH be with you,
Baruch Ben Daniel
