Two ways


Two ways, two doctrines, two scriptures have been submitted to the choice of man. Their sources, their purposes differ; they lead to different goals. Let us compare some passages from both these scriptures.

A: «So shall you eliminate the evil from your midst!» (Deuteronomy 13:16).

«Oh you that love YHVH, hate evil!» (Psalms 97:10)

B: «But I say unto you, don’t resist evil!» (Matthew 5:39).

A: «And he shall speak PEACE to the nations!» (Zechariah 9:10).

B: «Don’t think that I’ve come to bring peace on earth! I’ve come NOT to bring PEACE, BUT A SWORD!» (Matthew 10:34).

A: «Behold I send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and terrible day of YHVH, and he shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children, and of the children to the fathers, lest I come and smite the earth with a curse!» (Malachi 3:23-4).

B: «FOR I have come to set a man at variance against his father, and a daughter against her mother, and the daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law, and a man’s enemies shall be his own family!» (Matthew 10:35-36).

A: «But if a man be just and do what is lawful and right… and has walked in my statutes and kept my ordinances to act truthfully, he is JUST. HE SHALL SURELY LIVE, says ADONAI YHVH!» (Ezekiel 18:5-9).

B: «Knowing that a man Is NOT justified by the works of the law, but by faith of Jesus Christ, even we have believed in Jesus Christ, so we can be justified by THE FAITH of Christ and NOT by the works of the law. For by the works of the law shall NO FLESH BE JUSTIFIED!» (Galatians 2:16).

A: «You shall therefore KEEP MY STATUTES and MY ORDINANCES, which if a man do, HE SHALL LIVE THEREBY! (Leviticus 18:5).

B: «And the commandment which was ordained to cause life, I FOUND TO BE A CAUSE OF DEATH!» (Romans 7:10).

A: «And YHVH shall be king over all the earth!» (Zechariah 14:9).

B: MY Kingdom is not of this world!» (John 18:36).

A: «I am YHVH, that is MY NAME! And I will NOT give my GLORY to another, nor MY PRAISE to idols!» (Isaiah 48:8).

B: «And the GLORY which YOU(?) have given me, I have given them!» (John 17:22).

A: «But will the Almighty actually dwell on earth?! Why, heaven, and the heaven of heavens cannot contain YOU!» (First Kings 8:27).

B: «For in him dwells ALL THE FULLNESS OF THE GODHEAD BODILY!» (Colossians 2:9).

A: «To whom will you liken ME, and make ME EQUAL, and compare ME, that we may be like?!» (Isaiah 46:5).

B: «Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus, who, being in the form of God, THOUGHT IT NOT ROBBERY TO BE EQUAL WITH GOD!» (Philippians 2:5-6).

A: «And they shall no longer teach every man his fellow and his brother saying: know YHVH! For they shall all know ME, from the least to the greatest, says YHVH!» (Jeremiah 31:34).

B: «And he said to them, go to all the world and preach the gospel to every creature!» (Mark 16:15).

A: «YHVH is my Shepherd, I shall not want!» (Psalms 23:1).

B: I (?) am the good shepherd!» (John 10:11).

To sum up – The first way: Law; justice; righteousness; YHVH, Creator of all flesh, the ONLY DEITY and SAVIOUR; His Kingdom a real, actual kingdom in THIS WORLD; destruction of evil and triumph of good!

The second way: faith» in a «god become flesh» replaces obedience to YHVH’S Law; a mingling of pagan doctrines; introduction of a new «saviour»; evil NOT to be resisted; the kingdom of truth and justice NOT of THIS world, but some other fairy-tale world; the «father» abdicates in favor of the «son» etc. etc. etc.
