Nehemia Gordon: The Ass Speaks Out

Many flavors of Jews, Christians, and Messianics have been wondering or waiting for a more detailed dialog from Nehemia on the issue of his personal view of Yeshua / Jesus. Many of us have listened to Nehemia enough to already have a fairly good grasp of his perspective and approach to Yeshua and the NT (as a textual scholar), but even so... the following email (from Nehemia) is very insightful and entertaining for even those who thought they already understood him!

Nehemia may be a beast of burden, but he is certainly no Ass. He and few others have carried much of the weight of teaching Ephraim many important matters on Torah and even the Living Torah, Yeshua (even though he doesn't see Yeshua as such necessarily).

Enjoy!

The Ass Speaks Out

"Ass - a long-eared, slow, patient, sure-footed domesticated mammal, Equus asinus, related to the horse, used chiefly as a beast of burden." (Dictionary.com)

It's been several months since the publication of my book "A Prayer to Our Father", which I wrote together with Keith E. Johnson, a Christian pastor from North Carolina. This book explores the Hebrew origins of what is commonly known as the "Lord's Prayer". Many of my Jewish brothers and sisters have expressed great concern over the book. Some have even speculated that I have secretly converted to Christianity and am leading others into the Christian faith. Some of my Christian friends have joined in this speculation thinking that perhaps there is a "surprise ending" to the book in which I proclaim my faith in Jesus. On the flip side, some Messianics are spreading the false rumor that I allegedly hold secret meetings during my speaking tours in which I try to convince "believers" to abandon their faith. I hate to disappoint the rumormongers but none of these is true. I have not converted to Christianity nor do I attempt to convince anyone to change their faith. I suppose the reason for these false speculations is that some people have a hard time understanding why a Jew who does not believe in Jesus would write a book on his teachings unless he has a secret agenda. I thought I explained this rather well in my books but I guess not everyone reads my books. Or perhaps I am not as eloquent as I like to think. So I am writing this to try and set the record straight.

Let me start with my views on Jesus of Nazareth, or as he was known 2000 years ago, "Yeshua". Over the past few years I have gained a great respect for his teachings, but I have not embraced the Christian faith nor have I become a "Messianic Jew." I clearly state this in all of my presentations in order to avoid any possible confusion. I am, as I have been for over twenty years, a Karaite Jew, which means I believe the Tanakh ("Old Testament") to be the perfect word of God. As a Karaite Jew, I await the coming of an anointed King (in Hebrew: "Messiah") who will be a direct descendant of King David. I have no idea what his name will be and therefore I do not rule out the possibility that his name will be "Yeshua". Many Jews, and Karaites in particular, may vehemently disagree with me on this last point. All I can say is that when the anointed descendant of David reigns as a flesh and blood king over Israel, as promised in the Scriptures, we will all know his name as an accomplished fact.

So why do I have what one of my sisters – a devout Orthodox Jew – refers to as an "unhealthy interest in Jesus"? It started many years ago, when I came out of Rabbinical Judaism and began researching all of the world's religions. I was particularly interested in ancient Judaism in all of its forms and this naturally included the teaching ministry of Yeshua of Nazareth. My interest in this subject is not as unusual as my sister might think. Over the past century, Jewish scholars have increasingly carried out research to uncover the Hebrew background and context of the New Testament. One of the greatest of these scholars was Professor David Flusser, himself an Orthodox Jew, who taught at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. I was trained in the study of ancient Jewish texts at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem where I earned my Masters Degree in Biblical Studies and I view my own research on the teachings of Yeshua as part of this scholarly tradition.

To give this research some context, a number of years ago I was privileged to have worked with the Dead Sea Scrolls, which were written by an ancient Jewish movement called the Essenes. While I believe the Dead Sea Scrolls contain great value, at no time did I ever become an Essene. Furthermore, as a textual scholar researching the scrolls it was not my role to convince anyone whether or not to believe in Essene Judaism. My role as a scholar was to attempt to understand what these ancient documents meant in their original linguistic, historical, and cultural context. This is how I see my role in exploring the Hebrew background of the New Testament. It is not my role as a textual scholar to lead anyone into the Christian faith. Nor is it my role to lead anyone out of the Christian faith. These are issues of personal faith and belief that are beyond the scope of my research. My role as a textual scholar is to understand what Yeshua taught in the linguistic, historical, and cultural context in which he preached. For those who believe in Yeshua I would think this should be of great importance. But it should also be important for non-Christians, as Yeshua was indisputably a pivotal figure in world history who profoundly influenced the development of Western civilization.

In addition to my interest in all forms of ancient Judaism, there is another reason I think it is important for me to share the results of this research, especially with Christians. It relates to an experience I had many years ago in Jerusalem. Living in the Holy City, I meet all kinds of interesting people. One such gentleman was an American tourist who described himself as a "Messianic Gentile". I had heard of "Messianic Jews" before but did not know what a Messianic Gentile was. He explained that he believed Yeshua to be the Messiah and wanted to live as Yeshua lived. He told me that as a Jew, Yeshua refrained from eating pork and went to the synagogue on the Sabbath. Although he had no Jewish ancestry that he knew of, he too wanted to live as Yeshua had lived, refraining from pork and going to a synagogue on the Sabbath. At the time I had never met anyone quite like this and was very intrigued. We ended up spending many long hours discussing our respective beliefs and practices. One day he was telling me about the prayers in his congregation back in America and he proudly announced that in his Messianic synagogue they recited the Amidah. When I heard this I was shocked because I knew something he obviously did not know. The Amidah is the standard prayer of Rabbinical Judaism and I grew up as an Orthodox Jew praying this prayer three times a day. The Amidah is also known as the "Eighteen Benedictions" but today actually contains 19 benedictions. The 19th benediction, which my friend obviously did not know about, is called the Birkat HaMinim which means "the Blessing of the Heretics". Despite its name, it is actually a curse of the so-called "heretics". Historical sources, most notably the Talmud, inform us that this 19th benediction was added to the Amidah around the year 90 CE in order to prevent those Jews who accepted Yeshua as the Messiah from participating in synagogue services. At the time, the Rabbis did not have the authority to prevent Yeshua's Jewish followers from attending the synagogues but they reasoned these people would stop coming if a public curse was proclaimed upon them during every prayer service. When this "Messianic Gentile" told me his congregation recited the Amidah during their services I thought surely he meant the Amidah without the Birkat HaMinim. So I asked him to show me his Messianic prayer book and I quickly flipped to the section containing the Amidah. To my horror I found that it indeed contained the Birkat HaMinim. It had been translated in a very clever way to obscure its meaning, but there it was in black and white in both Hebrew and English. I was heartbroken at the thought of an entire group of devout people, who were searching in their own way for Scriptural truth, proclaiming a public curse upon themselves because they did not understand the historical context of their own faith. They wanted to live as Yeshua lived but ended up reciting a prayer created to curse those who believed in Yeshua. I realized then and there that the Almighty had blessed me with an understanding of ancient languages and ancient Jewish texts and I was morally obligated to share that information with anyone who needed it, even if I disagreed with them on important matters of faith.

As a Jew, it is not all that strange for me to interact with people that I disagree with on matters of faith. This is part of the pluralism inherent in Jewish culture in general. There is an old saying that "if you ask two Jews you get three opinions." This witticism is based on a fundamental principle in Rabbinical Judaism that there are seventy true meanings to every single word in Scripture. The result of this doctrine is that multiple opinions can be tolerated, even when they are diametrically opposed. This approach has imbued Jews with a relatively pluralistic attitude towards matters of belief, especially when these beliefs do not result in any practical expression of ritual observance. This is in sharp contrast to the Christian tradition of breaking fellowship, and indeed in earlier centuries of burning people at the stake, over the subtlest of doctrinal nuances.

As a Karaite, I do not agree with the Rabbinical principle that there are seventy true meanings to everything in Scripture. I believe there is only one true interpretation. However, with the Temple in ruins and the People of Israel in a state of Exile we do not necessarily know what that one true interpretation is. This necessitates a pragmatic pluralism which in some ways is even more tolerant than Rabbinical Judaism. Karaite Jews believe we must do our best to discover the truth but also humble ourselves before God and admit that we can never know for sure "until a priest with Urim and Thummim should appear" (Ezra 2:63). This humility means not judging our brothers for disagreeing on matters of faith, and even on matters of ritual observance, as long as they do their best to discover the Scriptural truth. I am not saying every Jew, nor even every Karaite, always lives up to these ideals but they are nevertheless values deeply rooted in Jewish culture.

Considering that there are, according to the World Christian Encyclopedia, over 33,000 denominations, I would have thought Christians to be even more tolerant to differences of faith and practice than Jews. To be sure, this may be true for many Christians. However, I did not realize how alien this pluralistic approach was to some Christians until last year when I was on a speaking tour in the USA. After one of my presentations a man walked up to me and thanked me for the information I had shared. He told me that he had been told by his congregation leader not come to my presentation. The congregation leader had warned him that as someone who does not believe in Jesus I was not "anointed" to speak the truth. The man objected to his congregation leader: "If God could use Balaam's ass to speak the truth then surely he could use Nehemia".

I suppose most Jews would be deeply offended at being compared to a female donkey but I was more disturbed by the arrogance of this man's congregation leader. I was raised with the tradition of the Rabbis who taught: "Who is a wise man? He who learns from every man." (Ethics of the Fathers 4:1). Karaite Jews wholeheartedly embrace this principle, often quoting the words of the 12th century Rabbinical sage Maimonides (Rambam): "Accept the truth from whoever speaks it." When Maimonides said this he was referring to the mathematical and astronomical knowledge he learned from ancient Greeks sources. He did not dismiss or ignore this knowledge even though it came from pagans because the knowledge was true in its own right. It is important to note that this was not simply "secular" knowledge to Maimonides; it had practical application to the observance of certain biblical commandments.

The original disciples of Yeshua and their heirs understood that truth had value regardless of its source. Evidence of this can be found in the Book of Acts, which quotes the words Gamaliel, a leading Pharisee of the 1st century. Although Gamaliel was not a believer in Yeshua, the Book of Acts considered what he said to be valuable and true in its own right. The notion that a Christian today would categorically deem what Jews have to say as worthless and untrustworthy because of our different beliefs is the zenith of arrogance. I am reminded of the words of Paul of Tarsus (admittedly a Jew) who warned the Gentiles:

"But if some of the branches were broken off, and you, a wild olive shoot, were grafted in their place to share the rich root of the olive tree, do not boast over the branches. If you do boast, remember that it is not you that support the root, but the root that supports you." Romans 11:17-18

I suspect Paul was talking about something that was already happening in his own time: Gentiles were embracing the faith in Yeshua and boasting that they were better than the Jews who did not share their new belief, even though these Jews were the "root" of their faith.

As if this arrogance were not bad enough, shortly after being compared to Balaam's ass, the specter of anti-Semitism reared its ugly head. I had been invited to speak at a Christian conference when the organizer received a dire warning from a local Christian pastor. The pastor proclaimed that as a "non-believing Jew" I was operating under the control of the "spirit of Antichrist". When I heard this I thought the pastor meant it metaphorically, but it turns out he meant there was a literal demonic spirit that was influencing my every move. He explained that it was nothing against me personally but all "non-believing Jews" are under the spirit of Antichrist. Boasting against the root is one thing, but this amounts to cursing the root.

Some of my fellow Jews reading this are probably thinking: "So why bother, Nehemia! Let the goyim languish in their ignorance." My answer is that there are countless Christians out there who want to understand their faith in its original historical, cultural, and linguistic context. Jesus of Nazareth was a Jew who spoke Hebrew and lived as a Jew among Jews. It just so happens that God has blessed me with a knowledge of ancient Judaism and ancient Hebrew and I feel compelled to share this information with those with those who need it, even if I disagree with them on important matters of faith. The Torah teaches us to love our neighbors as we love ourselves which means to treat others as we ourselves want to be treated. I know that if I lacked vital knowledge I would want someone who had this knowledge to share it with me. I must, therefore, share the knowledge I have with those who need it. I am not saying I know everything or that I have all the answers. But if God could use a donkey to speak to Balaam perhaps he is using me for some purpose that is beyond my comprehension. I pray that like Balaam's ass this is a burden I can continue to bear.

Richard Bennett
 

Born in Ireland to an Irish Catholic family, Richard Bennett was a Roman Catholic Dominican Priest for 22 years. He left the Roman Catholic Church at the age of 48 and came to faith in Yeshua ha Mashiach (Jesus the Messiah).

From Richard's testimony:

"... Paul's preaching is summarized at the end of II Corinthians 5:21, "For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him..."

This fact, dear reader, is presented clearly to you in the Bible. Acceptance of it is now commanded by God, "...Repent ye, and believe the gospel" (Mark 1:15).

The most difficult repentence for us dyed-in-the-wool Catholics is changing our mind from thoughts of "meriting," "earning," "being good enough," simply to accepting with empty hands the gift of righteousness in Christ Jesus. To refuse to accept what God commands is the same sin as that of the religious Jews of Paul's time, "For they being ignorant of God's righteousness, and going about to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted themselves unto the righteousness of God." (Romans 10:3) Repent and believe the Good News!"

John Todd — One Time Illuminist (witch)
Excerpt from http://poweredbychrist.homestead.com/something_wicked_2.html, titled "Something Wicked This Way Comes — For Real" by James Whistler:

"John Todd ... was chosen by the Lord to deliver a message of warning to the Lord's children, tarnished vessel though he was. John Todd was a mysterious man who appeared on the scene around three decades ago. He has all but been forgotten these days. For those who do remember him, he was quite controversial. I like to remember him as a man ahead of his time."

"John was born into a powerful Illuminati family and rose up through the ranks until he was invited onto the Council of 13 or the Grand Druid Council. On this council, he was privy to a lot of those hush hush plans that are on the agenda of the Ring-knockers. It was at this stage in his life that the Lord called him away from the wickedness he was in and so he defected and became a Christian. Todd then went traveling, telling his story. And what a story it was. It brought him some friends, some detractors and many enemies." 

"Illuminati agents posing as Christian ministries, immediately went into action maintaining damage control. Too many people and plans were being exposed. He was hit from many different angles and I am unsure whether he ever fully recovered from the Blitzkrieg."

John Weaver

Pastor John Weaver is a native of Georgia, and a graduate from Bob Jones University where he earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Theology and attended graduate school. He has been in the Christian ministry over 40 years. During that time, he has pastored, and helped plant several churches and Christian schools around the country. Pastor Weaver has traveled across America preaching and lecturing in churches, colleges and conferences.

Pastor Weaver's sermons on the subject of State's Rights, Statism and The Idolatry of Statism should challenge the thinking of any Bible Believing, Born-Again believer in Yeshua HaMashiach (Jesus the Messiah). After listening to Pastor Weaver, will you or will you NOT side with the Apostle Peter when he stated, "... We ought to obey God rather than men." (Acts 5:29)?

WARNING: Before listening to Pastor Weaver, you should ask yourself if you truly are walking in the light of Yeshua. By the time you finish the first message you will likely have to admit that

YOU MAY NOT HAVE BEEN WALKING IN THAT LIGHT!
(Are you rather an idol worshiper ... of the state?)

In the first of John Weaver's State's Rights audios (a little over 27 minutes into the audio), Pastor Weaver appropriately places his argument into a proper historical perspective as he discusses a tract written in the first year of the Civil War (aka "the War of Northern Agression") written by Pastor James Henley Thornwell, titled "Our Danger And Our Duty", part of which is quoted herein:

"But the consequences of success on our part will be very different from the consequences of success on the part of the North. If they prevail, the whole character of the Government will be changed, and instead of a federal republic, the common agent of sovereign and independent States, we shall have a central despotism, with the notion of States forever abolished, deriving its powers from the will, and shaping its policy according to the wishes, of a numerical majority of the people; we shall have, in other words, a supreme, irresponsible democracy. The will of the North will stand for law. The Government does not now recognize itself as an ordinance of God, and when all the checks and balances of the Constitution are gone, we may easily figure to ourselves the career and the destiny of this godless monster of democratic absolutism. The progress of regulated liberty on this continent will be arrested, anarchy will soon succeed, and the end will be a military despotism, which preserves order by the sacrifice of the last vestige of liberty. We are fully persuaded that the triumph of the North in the present conflict will be as disastrous to the hopes of mankind as to our own fortunes. They are now fighting the battle of despotism. They have put their Constitution under their feet; they have annulled its most sacred provisions; and in defiance of its solemn guaranties they are now engaged, in the halls of Congress, in discussing and maturing bills which make Northern notions of necessity the paramount laws of the land. The avowed end of the present war is, to make the Government a government of force. It is to settle the principle, that whatever may be its corruptions and abuses, however unjust and tyrannical its legislation, there is no redress, except in vain petition or empty remonstrance. It was as a protest against this principle, which sweeps away the last security for liberty, that Virginia, North Carolina, Tennessee and Missouri seceded, and if the Government should be reëstablished, it must be reëstablished with this feature of remorseless despotism firmly and indelibly fixed. The future fortunes of our children, and of this continent, would then be determined by a tyranny which has no parallel in history."

Dr. Michael S. Heiser
 

Mike Heiser earned the M.A. and Ph.D. in Hebrew Bible and Semitic Languages at the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 2004.  Before attending the UW-Madison, Mike earned an M.A. in Ancient History from the University of Pennsylvania (major fields: Ancient Israel and Egyptology).

Mike’s main research interests are Israelite religion (especially Israel’s divine council), contextualizing biblical theology with Israelite and ancient Near Eastern religion, biblical languages, ancient Semitic languages, textual criticism, comparative philology, and Second Temple period Jewish literature. His dissertation was entitled, "The Divine Council in Late Canonical and Non-Canonical Second Temple Jewish Literature.”  The dissertation sought to discern the ancient Israelite background to Judaism's "Two Powers in Heaven" teaching. 

Mike's other academic interests include paranormal and occult religions and western esotericism.  He is particularly interested in how these worldviews and traditions have historically drawn on biblical and ancient Near Eastern material and in turn influenced biblical interpretation on the popular level.  He has become well known through numerous radio appearances for his critiques of "parababble" and inside-the-box religious thinking. He is best known to popular audiences for his paranormal thriller, The Facade, which intertwines many of his interests.

Guy Malone
 

Guy Malone is best known as author of Come Sail Away : UFO Phenomenon & The Bible and as co-founder of AlienResistance.org, an organization dedicated to offering Biblical perspectives on the UFO / Abduction phenomena. In recent years Malone has organized several successful conferences (Ancient of Days & Roswell UFO Conference) which affirm the more credible aspects of secular UFO and abduction research, and investigates such reports from an evangelical perspective.

Malone believes that the occult teachings and doctrines of modern (alleged) aliens, as well as intentional disinformation, is best countered with sound, verifiable research, coupled with sound Biblical doctrine. While affirming that UFOs are real (see his UFOs 101 lecture), and the fact that many people today are experiencing contacts with non-human intelligences, Malone feels the "extra-terrestrial hypothesis" (aliens) is the least provable and least likely explanation for the phenomena (and therefore an "article of faith" for it's adherents - i.e., a religious viewpoint). His research has led him to instead favor a man-made view of suppressed technology as the probable explanation behind most UFO reports, and the Genesis 6 paradigm, which teaches that people are being brought into communication with deceiving angels intent on promoting an anti-christ worldview of global government (aka "The New World Order"). In short, he feels people are dealing with fallen angels and global conspiricists, not true aliens from other planets.

Malone lives in Roswell New Mexico with his wife, and together they continue the work of protecting the elect against the coming grand delusion.

Heaven Net is a website that is dedicated to encouraging believers in Christ to rise up and fight the good fight of faith. The main purpose of the site is to equip believers world-wide with resources that will encourage and build you up in your most holy faith and to encourage the unity in the faith that is required for the world to believe that Jesus is the Messiah.

The site contains a lot of content whose writers have a thirst and passion for truth, so some of the content may seem controversial to some religiously bound people. The idea is to do God's will and shun all man-made tradition which is founded in the fear of man. Instead this site is simply about sharing what God has put in our hearts and minds and putting those same things into the hearts and minds of others. We have no problem testing all doctrines even so-called sacred ones.

 

We first learn of Enoch in Genesis 5 but it leaves us with questions. Hebrews 11 has the answers and Jude quotes Enoch!

How did Jude come to know the words of Enoch? They are not in the Bible. The answer of course, is The Book of Enoch. A book which is actually quoted not only by Jude, but also James the natural brother of Jesus.

The quote in (Jude 14-15) & (1 Enoch 1:9) is as follows: "In the seventh (generation) from Adam Enoch also prophesied these things, saying: 'Behold, the Lord came with his holy myriads, to execute judgment on all, and to convict all the ungodly of all their ungodly deeds which they have committed in such an ungodly way, and of all the harsh things which ungodly sinners spoke against him'."

What is the Book of Enoch and where did it come from?

Enoch was the grandfather of Noah. The Book of Enoch chapter 68:1 "And after that my grandfather Enoch gave me all the secrets in the book and in the parables which had been given to him, and he put them together for me in the words of the book of the parables." This makes it possible for the Book to have survived the flood as its not too hard to accept that Noah would have taken his Great Grandfathers writings with him onto the ark.

The Book of Enoch was extant centuries before the birth of Christ and yet is considered by many to be more Christian in its theology than Jewish. It was considered scripture by many early Christians.

Stan Deyo
 

Born in Clifton, Texas to a family of American Pioneers, Stan spent most of his youth in Dallas. Graduating high school just three months after his 16th birthday, he was awarded a partial engineering scholarship to the University of Texas and also was given a full congressional appointment (scholarship) to the US Air Force Academy at Colorado Springs.

Upon returning to Dallas from USAFA, Stan trained in computer programming at IBM. Shortly thereafter, he formed his own "mission impossible" team solving extremely sensitive, difficult corporate computing problems.

Stan Deyo has held Above Top Secret Security Clearance and worked undercover for the FBI. He was part of an exclusive "black project", headed by Dr. Edward Teller specializing in the development of "flying saucer technology".

Dr. Robert C. Beck
 

Dr. Robert Beck was a physicist, who has to his name a D.Sc in science from the University of Southern California. Prior to USC Dr. Beck was a Professor at the University of California. Dr. Beck is known as a renowned researcher and inventor in the field of Energy Medicine devices.

Excerpts from http://www.cancertutor.com/Cancer02/BobBeck.html:

The reason the Bob Beck Protocol is so absolutely superior to other electromedicine treatments is that it is the direct result of an incredible discovery in medicine.

Two medical doctors, Dr. Kaali and Dr. Lyman, discovered, in 1990, that a small electric current could disable microbes from being able to multiply, thus rendering them harmless. It was, in fact, the greatest medical discovery in the history of medicine because virtually all diseases are caused by, or enhanced by, a microbe. Their discovery was a cure for almost every disease known to mankind.

Dr. Beck, who held a PhD in physics and had 30 years of electromedicine research behind him, found out about the discovery and found a non-invasive way to use their discovery. His early research had to be done outside of the United States to avoid persecution.

His first electromedicine machine is called the Blood Purifier or Blood Electrifier. The Blood Electrifier creates a very small alternating electric current (by "alternating" is meant that the polarity changes 4 times a second). The electric current destroys a key enzyme on the surface of a microbe (this is what Kaali and Lyman discovered), and prevents the microbe from multiplying. The body safely excretes the disabled (i.e. attenuated) microbes because they are not able to "hang on" to any cells.

The Bob Beck Protocol started out as an electromedicine treatment for AIDS / HIV, however, it has turned out to be a superb cancer treatment. ...There is certainly no other electromedicine treatment for cancer that is anywhere near as effective as the Bob Beck Protocol. It is far better than any Rife Machine, far better than any Multi-Wave Oscillator (MWO), far better than anything Hulda Clark has out, and so on.

In total, the Bob Beck Protocol consists of four parts. Two of the four parts of the Bob Beck Protocol (the two electromedicine parts) disable microbes from reproducing (at which point the body safely excretes them); one of the four parts (colloidal silver) kills microbes and the other part (ozonated water) either kills the microbes or the cancer cells (but this is the weakest of the four parts, so its contribution is unknown, officially it is used to detoxify).

Bob Beck died in 2002, but it is safe to predict that there will be a race between orthodox medicine and alternative medicine, for years to come, as to whether this alternative cancer treatment will survive. The technology will survive, but at least one person has been thrown in jail for selling Bob Beck Protocol equipment. That is why vendors are somewhat "gun shy" about making claims about what the Bob Beck Protocol can do.

Dr. David Ray Griffin
 

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:

David Ray Griffin (born 1939) is a retired professor of philosophy of religion and theology. Most recently, he proposes 9/11 conspiracy theories that contradict the mainstream account of events. Griffin's theories implicate some elements of the United States government in the attacks. Along with John B. Cobb, Jr. he is considered a foundational thinker in Process theology.

Following the September 11, 2001 attacks, David Ray Griffin moved his focus from questions of philosophy and religion to ones of politics and history, specifically "American expansionism and imperialism". He intended to write a book on the subject, presenting 9/11 in terms of "blowback" for aggressive United States foreign policies of the 20th century:

"Until the spring of 2003, I had not looked at any of the evidence. I was vaguely aware there were people, at least on the internet, who were offering evidence against the official account of 9/11... I knew the US government had 'fabricated' evidence to go to war several times before. Neverless... I did not take this possibility seriously... I was so confident that they must be wrong."

After reading the work of Paul Thompson and Nafeez Ahmed, he became convinced that there was a prima facie case for the contention that there must have been complicity from individuals within the United States, and joined the 9/11 Truth Movement in calling for an extensive investigation from the United States media, Congress and the 9/11 Commission. At this time, he set about writing his first book on the subject, which he called The New Pearl Harbor: Disturbing Questions About the Bush Administration and 9/11 (2004).

Dr. Stanley Monteith
 
For over a decade, prior to his retirement, Dr. Monteith led a delegation of physicians from Santa Cruz County to the House of Delegates of the California Medical Association. For 10 years he led the battle within organized medicine in California to address the AIDS epidemic as a medical issue rather than a civil rights issue. As a result of his experiences trying to implement an effective medical approach to the HIV epidemic, he wrote the book, "AIDS:The Unnecessary Epidemic", the widely circulated pamphlet, "To Deceive a Nation", and more recently, "A Nation Deceived and Betrayed." Supported by physicians across our nation, his public health approach to the HIV epidemic was eventually accepted by the California Medical Association. Unfortunately, powerful forces continue to oppose the dictates of doctors. Dr Monteith currently spends five hours daily on talk radio in California. He writes extensively, and lectures on geopolitics. He has spent 30 years researching the causes for America's spiritual and moral decline.

Stanley Meyer
 

Who was Stanley Meyer, and why should you care? Do you care about the cost of fuel? Or pollution?

Stanley Meyer was a Grove City, Ohio, inventor whose life's work became the development of a water fuel cell, that is, a chamber that can "tickle" water with very little electric current to produce non-polluting and combustible hydrogen and oxygen. Along with his twin brother Stephen, he also showed how the gas could be adapted to all of the most common uses currently using fossil fuels.

He was concerned about greenhouse gas emissions as well as the earth's depleted atmospheric oxygen levels. His invention would help, and he tried to keep selfish interests from stopping it. He did not succeed.

On March 27, 1998, Stanley Meyer (age 57) was apparently eating dinner at a Grove City, OH restaurant, when it is reported that he jumped up from the table, yelled that he'd been poisoned, and rushed out into the parking lot where he collapsed and died.

Jackson Boyett
Jackson Boyett was the original pastor of Dayspring Fellowship in Austin, TX (deceased). Dayspring Fellowship is a Reformed Baptist Church, named for Luke 1:78, where the coming of Jesus Christ into the world is described as a sunrise ( a "dayspring") from on high, "to give light to those who sit in darkness and the shadow of death, to guide our feet into the way of peace."

David Harrell
David Harrell is an elder at Dayspring Fellowship. The following teaching, titled, "The Great Awakening", is a well studied presentation on that era, and helps put a proper historical perspective on the faith in Yeshua HaMashiach (Jesus the Messiah) in light of a time when true belief was necessarily always "proven by the outworkings of that faith in one's life" and not by the "easy believism" of today's church. Listen to this excellent study if you wish to increase your faith!
