The prophecies in the Torah were addressed to specific individuals at specific times and places and under specific circumstances. Any reference made to those prophesies out side of that context is illegitimate and represents a grave threat to our commuinity.

For generations Christian theologians have had the bad habit of taking the words of the Hebrew prophets out of context and using them to imply things never intended by the writers of the Torah. The theology of predestination is one such idea that has never been accepted as legitimate and such is NOT the will of the G-D of Abraham. Neither does it have any place in the Jewish religion.

The so called 'Concept of Original Sin" is another bit of such flackery. No where in the Torah is it mentioned and it has never been supported by the legitimate authorites within Judaism.

As well, "Satan" is not a part of the Jewish religion. There is no mention of any Satan in the Torah and no such concept has ever existed amongst the Jews.

All of these facts go to show the great gulf that still stands between Jews and those outside of the Jewish community. For the last two millenia these differences have been used as an excuse to lay upon the Jews the burden of all of the sins of man kind. In the last century such a mind set resulted in the Holocaust. It must stop
