Reader comment on item: Britain's Encounter with Islamic Law
in response to reader comment: Dark Ages

Your statement is quite correct Sir. However, the problem we face today is thas so many are trying to drag us back in to the practices of the past which never were valid in the first place. The teaching of Rabbi Yeshua was NOT about him and that is just what they have made it out to be. Rabbi Yeshua's teaching was a straight forward discipline of the mind for the promotion of perceptual clarity within the individual. It was NOT an "ISM' or an "ITY" nor was it a philosophy like that of the Greeks to be argued in the market place.

The practice of Rabbi Yeshua's teaching was like that of Yoga. There was no theology involved nor was any ever implied. All of that came aftreward from the likes of Paul and the Greeks and Romans who so delighted in ritual obeisance, ceremonys, talismans and the symbolism of power that their superstition called for in their lives. THIS WAS NOT WHAT YESHUA WANTED!

Now we have men going about like petty merchants hawking their "Religion" like chaep trinkets in the market place. What next, will they next begin with the sale if indulgences and peices of the "TRUE CROSS" at fairs and gatherings?

The cross never was an emblem of the followers of Rabbi Yeshua. THAT PIECE OF TRAVESTY was imposed upon us by the Romans. Must we continue to bow before Rome? Must our lives be continually plagued be images of Yesuhas suffering and humiliation before the Romans?

I will admit that I am not a Jew. I am a Celt. But the Jew and I have have a thing in common in that we were both RAPED by the Romans, Our lives and our souls were stolen from us and we were left weak and our fates abandoned to the likes of the Saxons and the Arabs. But like the Phoenix we have risen from the ashes to reclaim what is ours and none shall stand before us to rule over us. Not the Roman nor the Greek nor the Arab. We shall be as free men in the world, of our selves, for ourselves and by ourselves.
