God’s Been Framed טוב
By Nichola Torbett
“I used to read this story as a story about a God who curses the snake and exiles the humans from the garden. That’s how we’ve been taught to understand it, right? ”
No. Pauline theology taught “Original Sin” … the justification of belief in Jesus to atone for Original Sin.
Gafney is an Episcopal priest. Gafney’s book Womanist Midrash uses womanist and feminist hermeneutics to interpret passages from the Hebrew Scriptures. There she discusses the issues of slavery. But fails to grasp the specific subject within the larger contexts,, that all societies existed as agricultural based societies till the Industrial revolution! Wealth came from the land. The wealthy aristocratic land owners both required and depended upon cheap slave labor. This basic error she does not grasp – big mistake.
She refers to the T’NaCH as the Hebrew Bible. Another fundamental error. Its clear that she only reads from Xtian translations of the T’NaCH. All Xtian translations – Bibles, make the exact same error as did Aaron who translated the Ineffable Name (as revealed in the 1st opening commandment of Sinai, which only the chosen Cohen nation accepts) unto אלהים. The Xtian Bible translators did the same error and translated the Ineffable Name to other words: Lord, for example; the Koran likewise translated the Ineffable Name to the word Allah. Herein defines the sin of the golden calf! Consequently both Bibles and Koran violate the 2nd Commandment of the Sinai revelation that only the chosen Cohen nation accept to this very day.
Another example of the cultural gap between the T’NaCH Chosen Cohen nation from Xtian believers, who believe in just another false messiah … the distinction between mussar and theology. T’NaCH prophets – one and all,, they command mussar. Xtian preachers,, by sharp contrast,, they emphasize theology. Mussar compares to theology,, like oil to water. Worlds separate a dialogue where persons debate an issue and the talk to one another;;; from the radical opposite — they talk at one another.
During the barbaric middle ages, priests would invade on shabbot Jewish synagogues and force those Christ killing, accursed wandering Jews to listen to some sermon telling them why they should convert to the true faith. This example serves as a succinct example of what it means to talk at someone else!
Gafney defines her feminism as a ‘black womans’ feminism. She calls Midrash “classic Jewish biblical interpretation”. A fundamental error. Midrash makes a focus, based upon the kabbala taught by Rabbi Akiva. ((All Midrashic scholarship – made by Gaonim scholars who thrived between 600 CE to 950 CE, after Rav Ashi and Rav Ravina sealed the Babylonian Talmud in about 450 CE – based their “wisdom of interpretation” upon the kabbala taught by Rabbi Akiva. Rabbi Akiva, one of the key leaders in the failed Bar Kochba War against Rome which resulted in the expulsion of Jews from off the lands of Judea,, as an Independent nation state,, for over 2000 years! The prophet Isaiah employs the metaphor of the wolf laying down with the lamb and the lion eating grass like a goat. This poetic license refers to the amazing idea that Jews could be uprooted and expelled from off their homelands and return and reconquer their National Independence generations later. This miracle happened after the Babylonians destroyed the kingdom of Judea. And it has happened yet again 3 years after the Shoah. Even after the European Xtian barbarians systematically murdered 75% of European Jewry in about 3 years)).
This kabbala of Rabbi Akiva goes by the concealed code name Merkaba. ((The modern Israeli tank goes by this exact same name!)) Merkaba translates as “chariot mysticism”, but translations do not define concealed/hidden terms. One of the definitions for the term ‘kabbala’,, kabbala understands the term Merkaba as meaning hidden or concealed! The sages within the pages of the Talmud strongly advised to teach it on a personal one to one basis, in order to maintain the secrecy of this logic code system. Ms. Gafney has no knowledge of this hidden kabbala code language,, which conceals a unique logic system format — which rabbinic Judaism calls Torah Sh’baal Peh/Oral Torah … and which the Church throughout its history has outright denied!
To listen to an alien outsider, totally unaware of the code language of this hidden logic system — day and night different and distinct from the logic systems which the ancient Greek philosophers Plato and Aristotle developed — really quite funny, very good comedy! The Church despises the Talmud. In 1242 the Pope and the king of France burned some 24 cartloads of hand written Talmudic manuscripts. The Nazi book burning [plural] base their war crimes upon the criminal insanity which church theologians imposed upon barbaric societies across Europe.
Both Midrash and the earlier Aggadita — completely closed texts. Without knowledge of the concealed code logic language,, interpretation system…all comments made upon texts not decodified —- complete and total rubbish,, directly comparable to the Rambam’s code of Jewish law. The Merkaba code language developed by Rabbi Akiva,, it directly compares to military use of Code language to conceal from the enemy the strategic and tactical war efforts to defeat that enemy. In Rabbi Akiva’s time, the enemy — clearly Rome. But enemies to the Jewish people did not cease to exist after the victorious Roman legions expelled refugee Jewish populations from off our homelands unto exile.

A letter to my brother wherein he asks: what’s the problem with my Israeli passport. טוב
It’s complicated. I am involved in the attempt to re-establish the Torah as the Constitution of the Republic. This includes making the lateral Federal Sanhedrin Court system the foundation of the Israeli Courts. I have chosen the issue of police issuing tickets as my political opposition to the existing בית משפט vertical court system. By the authority of the Talmud I argue that police cannot unilaterally impose fines. That only the judges of a court have the authority to impose fines. This places me in direct opposition to the existing court system. That gives the State the power to revoke my right to travel abroad. Rav Nemuraskii likewise challenged the vertical Israeli בית משפט courts.
To what does this compare? Recently Minister Lieberman dismantled the Orthodox monopoly over Kashrut. The Kashrut “police” משגיחים, (served as a משגיח, till I resigned over the issue of the Rabbanut permitting the places which the משגיחים policed to pay the salary of the משגיחים. I argued that this violated not taking bribes. Based upon the Torah which forbids judges from receiving bribes. Minister Lieberman, has validated my argument and outlawed the authority of the Rabbanut, and their monopoly control over the kashrut משגיחים. Now all משגיחים must receive their salaries from sources not affiliated with the places which they police. Wow, that’s an amazing success!!! The vertical judicial system of Justice, in like and equal measure follows the path of the now illegal Rabbanut. Judges and prosecutors receive their salaries from the State.
Have you ever wondered why the Talmud established Torts Courts on the basis of having 3 judges? A Jewish lateral court בית דין — none of the Judges receives any salary from the State. This compares to the Jury system wherein the American revolutionaries, who opposed the notoriously corrupt British Star Courts, established the ‘lateral’ jury system. The classic Jewish courtroom which Yohanan ben Zakkai established after he fled Jerusalem, while hidden in a coffin, before Titus conquered the Jewish Capital. This courtroom has 3 Judges. One of the three serves as Prosecutor, the second the Defense Attorney. Both these opposing Judges argue the specific Case before the 3rd Judge of the Court! (Common law — Case\Rule). As a Zionist who seeks to restore the Jewish Constitutional Republic, the Court System ie the Justice system, qualifies a critical requirement for the Jewish State. The current vertical בית משפט system models after European courtrooms, just as does the Israeli Knesset/Parliament. My political opposition opposes both.
The term “knesset” has its roots in the kabbala developed during the Middle Ages (think Zohar and Ari mysticism), after the public burnings of the Talmud in Paris, France 1242. Knesset translates as ‘collective soul’. My commentary to the Talmud and Rif, both reject the Zohar and Ari mystic schools as fraudulent. Simply no way that the author of the Zohar qualifies as being Shimon bar Yochai, the talmid of Rabbi Akiva. Why? Because all the rabbinic authorities within the Talmud followed the kabbala of Rabbi Akiva’s פרדס definition of Torah Sh’Baal Peh. The Rambam codification, like the Zohar, written by an assimilated Jew. The Oral Torah exists as a logic system format, which neither the author of the Zohar, nor the Rambam understood.
Assimilation constitutes as the first face of avoda zara which defines the 2nd Commandment of the Sinai revelation. This opposition research dates back to my time as a student at Texas A&M, wherein I developed the political premise that all revolutions occur when the “ethical containment force” of any given society gets “shattered”. Then I brought as proof the French, Bolshevik, and Iranian revolutions. In all three cases, according to my theory – which explained history – (As a history major, Dr. Dunning told me that this new theory qualified as one of the best that he had ever read. What made Troskii the ideal candidate to replace Lenin, his theory known as ‘permanent revolution’. Stalin took credit for ‘Socialism in One Country’, which put him as an equal to Troskii to replace Lenin), all these civilizations entered into chaos and anarchy,(the 2nd verse of the Torah) after revolution shattered the ‘ethical containment force’ of those doomed societies.
The first rule of revolutions, #1. Never a successful violent revolution. Eventually the leader of the revolution views his peers as ‘counter revolutionaries’, and has them murdered. Many examples throughout history: but Castro’s Cuba and Hussein’s Iraq “revolutions” come immediately to mind. Hitler had his ‘night of the long knives’ wherein he murdered Ernst Röhm. Learning history viewed through the lenses of theory, pretty much summed up how Dr. Dunning understood the subject of history. Not till rabbi Nemuraskii did the ‘gel effect’ happen, comparable as occurred with Dr. Dunning. Both men made a tremendous impact on my perception of the world.
