NZ Testimony: Saved by Brit-Am!
A Near-Victim of Conspiracy Theories and Media Bias Against the Jews Testifies to the Positive Effect Brit-Am Has Had On Him.
I just wanted to thank you for enlightening me on a most important subject, which potentially could be a life and death situation for many people much like the evolution versus creation argument. It was not that long ago that I was on the slippery path to hating the State of Israel due to the amount of negative media associated with such a small number of people and their [perceived] international control of trade and finances, primarily based out of New York and the city of London.
2. James W. Stark: Remarks on the Term "Jew".
Re: Brit-Am Now no. 1820
#1. Andy Hoy: Use of the term Jews for the Ten Tribes is Offensive!
Sir, Davidiy: Again allow me to extend my deepest appreciation and respect for the work that Brit-Am (most likely you personally) is doing for the sake of G-d's chosen. We are confronted with very disturbing news coming out of Iran. I pray daily for Israel. They will NOT be pushed into the Great Sea or"eliminated" as Iran's supreme leader put it just last Thursday; February 2, 2012.
I noted in the newsletter discussion the question of who is a Jew? "Where does the term 'Jew' come from... correctly stated "from where does the term Jew come." Your answer is, as usual, very good. You wrote:
Descendants of former inhabitants of the Kingdom of Judah or those who became attached to them are considered Jews.
Mordecai (the uncle of Esther) from the Tribe of Benjamin is referred to as a Jew (Esther 2:5 3:4).
May I suggest something that could be helpful in this understanding? There are those who are descended from the Tribe of Judah and there are those who come from the country of Judah.
In the Book of Esther, a captive people from the Kingdom of Judah then living in Babylon, Mordecai was a Benjamite. He had lived within territory of the Tribe/Kingdom of Judah before the Babylonian exile.
Yes Mordecai was called a Jew, but the intent of this use of the term refers to him as one of the captives from Judah, the Kingdom. One could correctly read Esther 2:5 as, "Now in Shushan the palace there was a certain 'captive, a Benjamite' from the Kingdom of Judah' whose name was Mordecai."
All Jews are Israeli but not all Israeli are Jews; all Israeli are Hebrew, but not all Hebrew are Israeli. None of this means one is of the religion of Judaism. Judaism is the religion just as would be the practice of Christianity, Hinduism, Shintoism...
We send a wrong signal by continuing to accept a name by default. All Baptists are Christian, but not all Christian are Baptist. Does this help?
By the way Mr. Davidiy. Are there not two different but almost similar sounding Hebrew words that distinguish between a descendant of the Tribe of Judah and one who lives or lived in the Kingdom territory of Judah?

To Make an Offering to Brit-Am!
'It is impossible to rightly govern the world without
God or the Bible.'
Brit-Am is the "still small voice" that contains the truth.
"after the earthquake a fire, but the LORD was not in the fire; and after the fire a still small voice"
