Welcome to the Hebrew Revolution
Integrating Religion, Science and History
“Science without religion is lame. Religion without science is blind." (Albert Einstein, 1954). History integrates the two spheres. It helps us sort through what works and what doesn't, contextualize the truth, and create a higher synthesis.
Which leads us to God, the One and Only Lord of all Creation, the Father, the One; the God of Abraham, the Hebrew Bible, and the laws and teachings of the Hebrew Revolution.
If you think that a loving God Who is involved and concerned with every person, force and particle in Creation is wishful or too good to be true, go here.
If you think religion is “opium for the masses” and the mission and religion of Israel in the world is stale, reactionary or irrational, go here.
To give a taste of the kind of learning that’s involved here: if a tree falls in a forest and there is no creature around to hear it, God hears it.
It's wild. Not just Einstein but Jesus, his family, the Christian apostles and Paul, Spinoza, Freud, Marx, and thousands of nice schoolteachers... and insanely disproportionate numbers of the world’s show-business pioneers, great engineers, musicians, artists, comedians, actors, writers, lawyers, law-makers, physicians, toy-makers, retailers, publishers, physicists, researchers, chess-masters and architects. . . belong to the same nation (such a tiny nation, fewer than .003 of the world's population) and represent the same movement and come from the same faith-tradition. It's really wild when you consider that his coincides exactly with the Bible’s ancient prophecies.
We must emphasize: it's not that the Jewish people are the stars here. The star is God.
The people are just the instrument.
This cause is humanity’s. The Jewish People exist to help elevate the human race. How? As God's witnesses to the reality and holiness of the higher-consciousness laws, principles, and living wisdom - and rules for living - of the Torah that God brought into being.
The Rainbow Covenant: Everything starts with the universal Revelation that God made man in His "image" - with language, self-control, self-knowledge, humor and intelligence. Every truly moral law and principle flows from there; from the truth that a human being is not an object nor merely an animal, but an infinitely sacred being.
The ‘Golden Rule’ (Do unto others….) follows. So do the seven Commandments of the Noahide Covenant or First Covenant, of Noahism, No'achism and Noahidism.
The big "secret" here? The Ten Commandments bind Israel. The Universal Moral Law that applies to Israel and everybody is the Seven Commandments. You should know about them!

We wrote a highly regarded book about this, the Universal Covenant: Rainbow Covenant: Torah and the Seven Universal Laws. It's the best book there is on the subject. Please read it!
In the meantime, while you're not at this moment reading the book:
