Morality is not just an obligation equal in importance to the cult or religious obligations of Israel, but that morality is perhaps superior to the cult. The crimes that are denounced as being utterly unacceptable to Yahweh, infuriating Yahweh to the point of destruction of the nation of Israel, are the kinds of crimes we see around us everyday, taking bribes, improper weights and balances, lack of charity to the poor, indifference to the plight of the debtor. Injustice is sacrilege, the ideals of the covenant are of utmost importance. Prophets were sent to Israel, these prophets are called the standard bearers of the covenant, harking back to the covenant obligations. And without these, without the ideals of the covenant, the fulfillment of ritual obligations in and of itself is a farce. What Yahweh requires of Israel is morality and not cultic service. The prophets raised morality to the level of an absolute religious value, and they did so because they saw morality as essentially divine. The essence of Yahweh is his moral nature. Moral attributes are the essence of Yahweh himself, one strives to be Yahweh-like by his moral actions. Read more thatlifeyahwehhas blogspot

Fornication, sexual immorality, sodomy, homosexual and many other related immoral behavior is not encouraged by Yahweh.

Would you please show how that is not true?


Nyamache Josh that's true.
and i think it should not be encouraged by anyone,
no matter who they are and what religion they profess.

There is a way that seems right to a man but its end is destruction.

G-d defines morality very, very clearly and the entirety of the Torah and prophets are founded on: Love the Lord your G-d with all your heart, mind and soul. The second is like the first, love your neighbor as yourself.

Whenever any civilization, culture or people get away from these its end result is always the same. Ruin

SimonLynette was agreeing with Nyamache Josh. He said "That's true." in the quote.
