Good Grief Charlie Brown,
You are serious!??! - I can not believe that you could
possibly take anyone seriously who first of all admits that he is NOT a Rabbi
but only has a degree in Rabbinic Studies from somewhere mysterious: "The title "Rabbi" is accurate as Yosef has a PhD in Rabbinical Studies", but
does not tell us from WHERE? The very least that we need to ascertain his
credibility is the University name....Yeshivot do NOT grant such degrees.
What are Rabbinical Studies???
And second of all he claims that: "My
reasons for remaining anonymous are obvious. These conclusions, if attached
to me, would ruin me as a reliable Jewish scholar. The website allows me
an outlet to publish my conclusions, without ruining my reputation. Rabbi
A bona fide Scholar would NOT be ashamed of his findings
nor be a hypocrite and try to have it both ways. IF he sincerely believes:
"I continue to practice Judaism in light of the New Testament and the Book of Mormon, and interpret both as Jewish books." Then
why be afraid to come out and say so. Perhaps if he is such a great Jewish
Scholar he would then be able to show the rest of us Jews the "light".
All quotations are taken directly from his website.
He can not possibly be a Nazarene Jew as he himself says:"I continue to practice Judaism in light of the New Testament and the Book of Mormon, and interpret both as Jewish books."
HOW do you interpret this to mean that he is a
Nazarene Rabbi, when you have just condemned Mormonism as being a cult, and
he very clearly states that he practices as a Mormon.
