Get Racing Toward Armageddon PDF

From Publishers Weekly
As in his prior books (Holy Blood, Holy Grail; The Jesus Papers), Baigent attempts to discover the darkish forceshiding within the shadows of faith and ferret out fundamentalists whose dogmatism frequently turns to violence. concentrating on the top occasions, he warns that robust fundamentalist sects in Christianity, Judaism and Islam are operating to lead to the conflict of Armageddon, whilst the forces of darkness can be destroyed by means of the Messiah, who will then result in a brand new reign. All 3 teams wish Jerusalem, the place each one lays declare to a actual spot, the Dome of the Rock, as a sacred position in its heritage; all 3 need a country within which politics are subservient to faith. Baigent makes a similar mistake that the fundamentalists make while studying the publication of Revelation. it's not a booklet of prophecy and guide for scary sinners again into the fold; it's apocalyptic literature that makes use of symbols as mystery codes for the scenario within the lives of first- and second-century Christians, supplying them wish for escaping from their plights. unfortunately, Baigent's well-intentioned exposé seems to be little greater than a screed opposed to fundamentalism that's in accordance with a misreading of his valuable textual content.

L. 7 It is meant to bring about harmony in society above and beyond what justice might demand, and for the spiritual virtuosi of Islam, the ennoblement of character depends on orientation to the face of God—the ethical fruit being an attitude of kindliness (ihsan) to all,8 as evidenced in a passage from one of the letters of Ibn ‘Arabi, a thirteenth-century mystical philosopher who remains as influential and controversial today as he was in his own age: Kindliness is obligatory… for the Prophet said, “Indeed I have been sent to perfect noble character (makarim al-akhlaq)… and [for that purpose] God introduced himself into companionship with humans….

Humans somehow look like God, … the human form and the divine form, however we understand those phrases, have something in common. In particular, this seems to mean that the human face—every human face—is a copy or reflection of the face of God. Green’s emphasis on “every person” and “every human face,” is meant to distance him from traditional Jewish mystical morality, while retaining its unitive character. Later I will return to these new developments and to what they can tell us about the complex relation between Jewish mysticism and Jewish morality.

In addition, concerning intermarriage between a Jew and nonJew, this entails a cosmic act of strengthening the Other Side at the expense of the people of Israel. Finally, the social rejection of the non-Jew reaches its most radical limits in the Zohar’s stricture not to approach physically close to a nonJew, because the non-Jew is impure and imparts impurity to those who come close (Zohar, 1:220a). This restricted morality of Jewish mysticism lives in a symbiotic relationship with traditional Jewish law.
