As most of you are aware, we had a crash to forums and were down for over two days a while back. We did have to do an upgrade to the vbulletin software to fix the forums and that has created changes, VB no longer provide the hybrid or threaded forums. There are some issues/changes to the forums we are not able to fix or change. Also note the link address change, please let friends and posters know of the changed link to the forums. For now this is the only link available, https://forums.carm.org/vb5/ but if clicking on forum on carm.org homepage it will now send you to this link. (edited to add https: now working.

Again, we are working through some of the posting and viewing issues to learn how to post with the changes, you will have to check and test the different features, icons that have changed. You may also want to go to profile settings,since many of the notifications, information in profile, also to update/edit your avatar by clicking on avatar space, pull down arrow next to login for user settings.

Edit to add "How to read forums, to make it easier."
Pull down arrow next to login name upper right select profile, or user settings when page opens to profile,select link in tab that says Account.

In J.K. Rowling’s New Novel, the Villain Is an Israel-hating anti-Semite

  • In J.K. Rowling’s New Novel, the Villain Is an Israel-hating anti-Semite

    “Lethal White,” the fourth series in Rowling’s Cormoran Strike mystery series, written under the pen name Robert Galbraith, features a pair of hard-left political activists who believe “Zionists” are evil and have a stranglehold on Western governments.

    Extortionist Jimmy Knight’s extreme hatred of Israel has led him to hate Jews.

    “I wouldn’t trust him if it was anything to do with Jews,” Knight’s ex-wife tells a detective. “He doesn’t like them. Israel’s the root of all evil, according to Jimmy. Zionism: I got sick of the bloody sound of the word. You’d think they’d suffered enough,” she says of Jews.

    Rowling’s depiction of a far-left anti-Semite comes at a time of record high anti-Semitism in Britain, where she lives. Britain’s Labour Party and its leader Jeremy Corbyn have been accused of insensitivity to Jews and condoning anti-Jewish sentiments within the party’s ranks. Corbyn previously defended a grotesquely anti-Semitic London mural depicting Jewish bankers, and referred to his “friends” in terror groups Hamas and Hezbollah, though he’s said he now regrets these positions.

    A September 2018 poll found that nearly 40 percent of British Jews would seriously consider emigrating if Corbyn became prime minister — as polls show he might.

    The latest novel isn’t the first time the author of the Harry Potter series has commented on the dangers of anti-Semitism.

    “Most UK Jews in my timeline are currently having to field this kind of crap, so perhaps some of us non-Jews should start shouldering the burden,” she wrote in April, in response to a critic who said Judaism is a religion, not a race. “Antisemites thinks this is a clever argument, so tell us, do: were atheist Jews exempted from wearing the yellow star?”

    It appears that anti-Semitism began with Jew-hater-Aaron, who said to Jew-hater-Moses: "you know the people, that they are set on evil." (Exodus 32:22) So with one broad stroke of the brush, Jew-hater-Aaron paints the Jews as a people set on evil.
    31“When the Son of Man comes in his glory, and all the angels with him, then he will sit on his glorious throne. 32Before him will be gathered all the nations,.." (Mt. 25) May the Divine assistance remain always with us and the Choctaw Nation.

      What do you think about the Noahide laws? Do you think that they will ever get to enforce them worldwide?

        I don't think the conscious obedience of them will go worldwide until the Messiah comes. However, I think many good people observe them without being aware of them.

          Do you think that the punishment of not obeying them, which is death by decapitation, will be enforced against the Christians?

            Capital punishment is the most severe of punishments that can be assigned, but the judges can assign a lesser punishment. The Talmud tells us that a court that put someone to death once in 70 years was a “bloody court.” That should give you some idea how often death penalties are actually handed out for capital offenses when Jewish law is in place.

            Towards Christians? Of course. Why wouldn't they be? The Noahide laws apply to ALL non-Jews.

              I think it is possible that the Noahide laws would be used to try and eliminate Christians. It's going to be a different world. They are using illegal exploding bullets in Israel now on the Palestinians, so I don't see them trying to abide by anything civilized when the time comes.

                I'm sorry but that's just baloney. The Messiah will be a just ruler. However, the errors of Christianity will be corrected -- you will see the truth for yourself, if for no other reason than that you will recognize the Messiah, he will be here for the first time, and will not be God.

                  The Messiah will not be God? Then why does the prophet Zechariah refer to the Messiah as Yahweh in Chapter fourteen of his prophecy?

                    Zechariah 14 is not messianic.

                      Yes, it is. Read it carefully. It describes what happens when Messiah returns.

                        I've read it very carefully. It's about God and what God will do for Israel. It is not about the Messiah.

                          He lands supernaturally with His feet on the Mount of Olives. This is describing what happens when Jesus returns, which He prophesied while He was sitting on the Mount of Olives in Matthew 24. He returns after Israel goes through another captivity which is also prophesied in Ezekiel. Jesus has always been God's theophany. Abraham had lunch with Him. The ancient Jews always saw the Messiah as God. In Genesis I:2, the Spirit of God that moved upon the waters is seen as the Spirit of the Messiah. Also the bulk of Hebrew writings concerning the messiah portray Him as a suffering servant, I've read some of them. If the messiah is not god and just a man, then his rule will be limited to his lifetime. If the Messiah is God manifest in human flesh, as the scriptures describe Him, "God was in Messiah reconciling the world to Himself" II Cor. 5:19, then Messiah's rule will be longer than a man's lifetime. Revelation says it will be one thousand years.

                            Jews have never seen the Messiah as God. "God is not a man that he should lie." You cannot take the anthropomorphisms of God as evidence that God will become a man. I'm sorry, but you are throwing all kinds of fruit into the basket. It would take more than a single post to try to sort them out for you.

                            And I'm sorry, but Jesus is never mentioned in the Tanakh.

                              I told you the ancient Jews recognized that the Spirit of God that moved upon the waters in Genesis 1:2 is the spirit of the Messiah. It's in the Midrash. Also, you have a common misunderstanding about how Jesus is recognized as "God." He is not God the Father. But God was in Him through His Holy Spirit, that's the difference. Jesus said that He did not do the miracles, they were done by God through Him. Because Jesus's Spirit is God's Spirit, God operates through His Spirit in His Son. Jesus is "God" through His union with the Father, they both have the same Holy Spirit, but are two distinct persons or souls. If you understand how the scriptures define the distinctions between soul and spirit, it's easier to understand how it all works. The doctrine of salvation by grace is clearly shown in Genesis and foreshadowed throughout the entire Old Testament. And as you said, it would take more than a single post to illustrate all of it.
