The Rational Bible

Book of Genesis the first book of the Bible will demonstrate that the Bible is not only powerfully relevant to today’s issues but completely consistent with rational thoug. Very insightful verse by verse commentary of the first book of the Old Testament by Rabbi PragerA few gems in the context of the stories verses and principles of the Book of Genesis Undoing God s order and distinctions is the natural state of man The battle for higher civilization may be characterized as the battle between biblical distinctions and the human desire to undo many of those distinctions eg lightdark malefemale goodevil lifedeath Ch 1 Regular attendance at a house of worship is the most accurate predictor of altruism so than any other factor Essay It is Not Good for Man to Be Alone Ch 2 The key factor is being part of a religious community Note also that loneliness has become what former US Surgeon General Vivek Murthy has said is an epidemic Divine revelation is necessary because human conscience is not enough since evil is done by many with a clear conscience Essay The Most Empowering Idea in Life Ch 4 Poverty is not the reason for evil People are not basically good Values and moral self control matter far than outside forces The best way to make good people is through the combination of good values good laws and a god who commands goodness such as that of the Bible Those who blame evil on outside forces ie society rather than the individual will encourage people to battle society rather than their own human nature The need to change society rather than a focus for people to change their nature is becoming the dominant feature in the western world Essay The Belief People Are Basically Good is Foolish and Dangerous Ch 8 God and the Bible are greatly concerned with preventing animal suffering While it doesn t ban meat eating the Bible does prescribe the humane treatment of animals Ch 9 The most freuent statement from God to man in the Old Testament is Do not fear The greatest antidote to fear is faith in God Ch 15 In the ancient world change of name signified an event of great import Abraham s name change signified that something very important was to happen Ch 17 It takes than one to do great good but a single person can do immense evil eg Lenin Mao Stalin Hitler Pol Pot However a small group can make a moral impact eg American Founders Christian abolitionists Jews Ch 18 Immense evil is done by collective groups eg Chinese Cultural Revolution Ch 19 Kindness to strangers is the most cited principle than any other commandment in the Torah Ch 19 The merit of a righteous person is a doctrine that says that an undeserving personpeople might be spared for the sake of or on the account of a righteous person eg Abraham and Lot Ch 19 The Torah s preoccupation is with living a morally good life and enjoying it Ch 24 Gratitude is the root of both goodness and happiness Prayers expressing gratitude are among the highest levels of prayer The finest individuals are those who express gratitude after their reuest is fulfilled Ungrateful people cannot be good or happy Ch 24 Rebecca s veiling herself upon greeting her future husband is the origin of the custom of veiling the bride in a marriage ceremony Ch 24 The phrase gathered to his kin people in KJV Gen 258 testifies to a belief that man possesses an immortal element that survives his perishability and death and thus death is looked upon as a transition to an afterlife where one is united with one s ancestors Essay The Afterlife Ch 25 The instance of one being shown through data facts etc that something about their argument is inaccurate and they fail to stop making that argument and place ideology above truth is probably the greatest source and very common as well of mass evil in the world Big lies have been the greatest source of evil in the modern world the genocides and mass murders of the 20th Century Essay On Lying Ch 31 Biblical monotheism and the Torah s denial of all other gods served as the single most important moral and intellectual advance in history eg The Torah s God is a god entirely above and beyond nature brought universal morality into the world means good and evil are not subject to individual or societal opinionschanges but objectively real morally judges every human being gives humanity hope introduced holiness humans as beings created in God s image gives every individual unprecedented self worth is necessary for human brotherhood began the long journey to belief in human euality teaches that the physical realm is not the only reality means there is ultimate meaning to existence and to each of our lives gives humans free will teaches might is not right and made human moral progress possible Ch 35 While people rarely learn from other s lives learning from other s mistakes is a good definition of wisdom Ch 37 Gen 3718 Joseph s brothers conspire against him It is easier to loathe people and plot against them when we are not actually confronted with them When we interact with people they often become sympathetic human beings The surest way to preserve hatred and negative stereotypes is to avoid dealing face to face with those we hate The principle is the same the other way which is why one must guard against becoming sympathetic to those who are evil Ch 37 Like Joseph the Jewish people have been remarkably successful in foreign societies The primary reason has been the Jews values incl strongstable family life near universal marriage and children universal literacy emphasis on the life of the mind delayed gratification and an aversion to violence Ch 39 Gen 4151 Manasseh means God has made me forget completely my hardship and parental home The three elements to this verse are 1 Joseph willingly forgot his childhood pain 2 the role of having a child in that process of forgetting and 3 the role of God in that process of forgetting Ch 41 Maimonides defined complete repentance as he who is confronted with the identical situation in which he transgressed and it lies within his power to commit the transgression again but nevertheless abstains but not out of fear of being caught Ch 42
