With Oracle Broadcasting terminating its live broadcasting operations as of April 1, 2013, Charles Giuliani’s last Truth Hertz episode was on March 29, and I called in at 8:51.

I talked about only hearing at the beginning of the year, the claim, by a GCN host, that the Torah is still valid today for non-Jews.

From the King James translation of Numbers 15:16:

One law and one manner shall be for you, and for the stranger that sojourneth with you.

But where’s the indication that the law applies to non-Israelites thousands of years later, and outside of the company of Israelites? Then, there is the matter that Israel subsequently became divided into the House of Israel and the House of Judah, and Jeremiah says that Yahweh divorced Israel (Jeremiah 3:8), and Judah was effectively divorced in 70 AD with the destruction of the Second Temple and the eventual expulsion of Jews from Palestine.

Regarding the state of Israel, the host even admits that the Israelis have not been yet reconciled to Yahweh, which is evident on the basis that it has no official religion and that many of its policies and the actions of many of its people are contrary to Yahweh’s covenant in the Torah.

I said that the host was discredited by the fact that he considers the Gospel according to Matthew and the Gospel according to John as being eye-witness testimonials, despite those names not appearing in the text, and only later being ascribed, and the author of Matthew making outrageous claims concerning Old Testament verses constituting prophecy and the story of the adultress in the book of John not appearing in the earliest manuscripts, thereby likely being inserted by later scribes.

The Square and Compasses. The symbols employed...

The proof that Freemasonry isn’t a Christian institution is simply that Freemasons have displayed a Qur’an on the altar, according to a 33-Degree Mason, as reported by ABC News.

S. Brent Morris, who is, among other things, a 33-Degree Mason, master of the royal secret and managing editor of the Scottish Rite Journal, said that although Freemasonry was not a religion, it had overarching religious principles that were part of Masons’ rich traditions.

Morris said Freemasons displayed a Bible, a Koran and a Torah on their altar.

On Sunday, November 8, 2009, in The Sunday Times, Goldman Sachs’ CEO, Lloyd Blankfein, said he was doing “God’s work.” How accurate is his claim?

Mr. Blankfein is Jewish, as this jinsider.com article states, entitled, “Top Wall Street Jew: Lloyd Blankfein.”┬áThe oldest and most authoratative source to test his claim would be the Torah — the five books of Moses.

In the Torah, specifically in Deuteronomy, chapter 15, verses 1 to 3, we have the following English translation from the New International Version:

1. At the end of every seven years you must cancel debts.
2. This is how it is to be done: Every creditor shall cancel the loan he has made to his fellow Israelite. He shall not require payment from his fellow Israelite or brother, because the LORD’s time for canceling debts has been proclaimed.
3. You may require payment from a foreigner, but you must cancel any debt your brother owes you.

Therefore, in order for him to be doing God’s work, according to his religion, every seven years, he’d have to cancel all debts to fellow Israelites, now Jews, and keep them for all non-Jews. Where is the evidence Goldman Sachs is doing this? I can’t find any. In fact, I can only find evidence to the contrary. Namely, that all debts are kept past seven years for Jews and non-Jews alike.

For those who will argue that the Torah no longer applies to Jews, or that they can pick and choose which commandments to follow, that would indeed come as a surprise to Orthodox Jews, who I believe, rightly follow all of the Torah. Otherwise, what authority does anyone have to pick and choose which commandments of God to follow, if indeed they all be from God, as Orthodox Jews claim. If the Torah is inauthentic, in whole or in part, then Mr. Blankfein needs to cite his evidence to justify his claim that he’s doing “God’s work,” when he’s not following one of his God’s commandments.

To those who would say that God’s commandments in the Torah don’t apply to the actions of those working as employees of corporations, one need look no further than Exodus 32, to see that such an excuse doesn’t wash. Cite me a single verse that shows the actions of individuals were excused as a result of their participation as a group. Indeed, Aaron was held accountable for the actions of his fellow Israelites in worshipping the Golden Calf, when Moses was up on Mount Sinai.

Finally, to those who would say that all religions are fantasy, including Judaism, I say to them, that’s irrelevant to whether Mr. Blankfein’s claim that he’s doing God’s work should be held up to scrutiny, based on his own beliefs about God.
