A Glance back at the Bible’s original, one and only, Kingdom of Hell

A Glance back at the Bible's original, one and only, Kingdom of Hell

In Jewish, Christian and Islamic scripture, Gehenna is a destination of the wicked. This is different from the more neutral Sheol/Hades, the abode of the dead, though the King James version of the Bible translates both with the Anglo-Saxon word Hell.

The German Nietzche’s Hatred for the Judeo/Christian

The German Nietzche's Hatred for the Judeo/Christian

Nietzsche is forthrightly blaming the Judeo/Christian moral tradition for the rise of the slave morality. For Nietzsche, there are no essential differences between Judaism and Christianity- Jesus was a Jew who wanted to reform Judaism, and the ensuing split between Judaism and Christianity is a matter of two variations on the same theme. Both Judaism and Christianity share the same roots and the same general approach to morality. Nietzsche traces the origin of that morality back to a decisive set of events early in Jewish history, before the time of Moses. That event was the enslavement of the Jews in Egypt. If we recall our Biblical history, the Jews were for a long time a slave people under powerful Egyptian masters.

The Facts about Talmudic Sexual Morality

 

“The constant accusation that the Talmud is in any way sexually immoral or impure is one of the biggest lies ever told. In reality, the Rabbis of the Talmud were very strict about personal sexual behavior.”


* The Natural, Normal, and Traditional Sexual Morality of the Talmud *

___________________________________

The constant accusation that the Talmud is in any way sexually immoral or impure is one of the biggest lies ever told. Why? I’ve studied the ENTIRE Babylonian Talmud for many years and found it to be very sexually moral, more so than most forms of Christianity. In reality, the Rabbis of the Talmud were very strict about personal sexual behavior. For example, the Talmud insists that a husband may only have sex with his wife in total darkness. Any outside light source illuminating the interior of the marital bedroom was prohibited. Marital love even by the moonlight was seen as sinful and wrong. This is not to say the Rabbis were repressed in any way. Indeed, they come off as quite wise and down-to-earth about sexual matters. Their frank discussions of animal breeding practices would probably make a young girl blush, but their old-fashioned chivalry and respect for women prove the point that these Rabbis represented sort of an ancient version of the Anglo-Saxon country Gentleman.

* The Talmudic Opposition to the Devil’s ‘Handshake’ * ___________________________________

Because of the traditional Jewish respect for self-discipline and self-control, the Talmud’s attitude towards masturbation was far different than today’s Christian tolerance and acceptance of a sexual act still defined in the dictionary as self-abuse, or self-defilement. The Rabbis of the Talmud considered any man (or boy) who masturbated as being ‘worthy of death’. Here is the relevant Talmudic verses and their blatant condemnation of that diabolical method the Devil prefers to use all the while pretending to shake your hand in friendship.


== The Jewish Talmud’s References about Masturbation ==


Eleazar stated: “Who are referred to in the Scriptural text, ‘Your hands are full of blood?’ Those that commit masturbation with their hands.”

– Jewish Talmud, Niddah 13b

It was taught at the school of Rabbi Ishmael, ‘You shall not commit adultery,’ implies, ‘You shall not practice masturbation with either hand or with foot.’

– Jewish Talmud, Niddah 13b

Rabbi Ammi stated: “He who excites himself by lustful thoughts will not be allowed to enter into the Presence of the Holy One, blessed be He.’ For here it is written, ‘Was evil in the sight of the LORD,’ and elsewhere it is written, ‘For You are not a God that takes pleasure in wickedness and evil shall not sojourn with You.'”
