"If you can't guess the people I have in mind, I'll give you some clues --- clues found in a major world religion that is many centuries old. I'll call it Religion X.
X traces its roots back to the First Couple, Adam and Eve. They were on earth before any other form of worship --- before Islam (appearing 14 centuries ago), before Hinduism or Buddhism (appearing 25 centuries ago), before even the worship of various gods in Mesopotamia (60 centuries ago).
on, Religion X'ers were told by their God: "Love your neighbor --- and even the stranger who dwells among you --- as much as you love yourself." But it wasn't long before Religion X began rebelling against the laws of the One who had blessed and preserved it so much. In response God warned: "All those who hate me love death."
centuries of hating their God (which predictably led to hatred of fellow humans, God's creations), Religion X'ers were allowed by God to be conquered and transported to ancient Babylon where they experienced a 1,600-year-long "vacation."
If you haven't guessed yet, the religion I'm describing is Judaism, the religion of my people. But don't stop reading. The most shocking stuff is just ahead!
[emphasis mine]
in Babylon, the "wise men" among our people began formulating new laws which supposedly supplemented and explained the time-tested Old Testament writings. But the new rules actually contradicted and eventually replaced the original laws!
"new and improved" laws are collectively known as the Talmud. Even though rabbis are Talmudic experts, probably not one Jew in a thousand (and not one non-Jew in ten thousand) knows what is in the Talmud. Without further delay, here's some of the Talmud's "wisdom" (plus sources):
  Hyenas turn into bats after seven years, and later on turn into thorns and demons (Baba Kamma, 16a).
Being naked in front of a lamp causes epilepsy (Pesahim, 112b).
There's medicinal value in dirt found in an outhouse's shadow, also in a white dog's excrement (Gittin, 69a,b).
  The birth of a girl is an unhappy event (Baba Bathra, 16b).
It is never good to talk too much to women including one's own wife (Aboth, 1.5).
All women are "temperamentally light-headed" (Kiddushin, 80b).
It is okay to divorce your wife if she spoils your food, or if you find a more beautiful woman (Gittin, 91a).
  It is lawful for a girl three years old to have sexual intercourse (Abodah Zarah, 37a; Kethuboth, 11b,39a; Sanhedrin, 55b,69a,b; Yebamoth, 12a,57b,58a,60b).
When a man commits sodomy with a boy under nine years of age, it "is not deemed as pederasty" (Sanhedrin, 54b,55a).
Sexual intercourse with a boy under the age of eight is lawful since it isn't fornication (Sanhedrin, 69b).
(In other words, Religion X became X-rated! Is it any wonder that many Jewish persons today are liberally involved with the current sexual revolution and are even favorable towards legalization of adult-child sex?).
  Since all Gentiles are only animals, all Gentile children are bastards (Yebamoth, 98a). 
When a non-Jew robs a Jew, he has to pay him back, but if a Jew robs a non-Jew, he doesn't have to pay him back. Moreover, when a Gentile kills a Jew, the Gentile must be killed, but when a Jew kills a Gentile, "there is no death penalty" (Sanhedrin, 57a).
It is okay to "use subterfuges" in a court of law in order to cheat a non-Jew (Baba Kamma, 113a).
  Jesus was born a bastard (Jewish Encyclopedia, "Jesus"; Yebamoth, 49b).
Mary, the mother of Jesus, was a whore and "played the harlot with carpenters" (Sanhedrin, 106a,b).
Jesus "practised sorcery and enticed Israel to apostacy" (Sanhedrin, 43a).
Jesus was punished and sent to Hell where he ended up in "boiling hot excrement" (Gittin, 56b,57a).
Christians will go to Hell "and be punished there for all generations" (Rosh Hashanah, 17a).
Those who read "the works of the Judeo-Christians, i.e., the New Testament" will end up in Hell (Sanhedrin, 90a).
The books of the Christians "may not be saved from a fire, but they must be burnt in their place, they and the Divine Names occurring in them" (Shabbath, 116a).
(Now you know what's been inspiring many of the anti-Christian attitudes and actions these days.)
By roughly 500 A.D. Jewish scribes had completed the voluminous Talmud, the written version of what had long been the Jews' oral tradition---the tradition that Jesus condemns in the 23rd chapter of Matthew and other parts of the New Testament.  
  Whenever anyone claims that for 1500 years the Talmud needlessly aggravated Gentiles (who in turn put Jews into ghettos and even the Holocaust), Jews can look at even earlier history and claim that the "anti-Jewishness" of the New Testament forced Jews to hit back with their printed version of the Talmud.  
  Actually the New Testament, like a newspaper, merely reflects the true condition of Judaism at that time. If someone could prove that damaging descriptions of Jews never appeared before the New Testament, that would be one thing. But during many centuries prior to Jesus or any Christians, Jews were saying and doing the same things that we find them still saying and doing during New Testament days!  
  If the New Testament record of their words and works is "anti-Semitic," is the Old Testament record of the same rebelliousness just as "anti-Semitic"?  
A while ago I was talking with a young woman in Los Angeles who is training to become a rabbi. I asked her about the Talmud. (She seemed shocked I should know so much about it already!) "Oh," she said, "I don't think it's as relevant as it once was." When I told her that the "hate" movie "The Last Temptation of Christ" was an amazingly accurate reflection of the Talmud---and that more such "hate" films are in the works because Hollywood takes the Talmud seriously---she had no explanation.  
In the future when "hate" laws are passed, will the incredibly hate-filled Talmud and some hate-promoting film studios be swept under the rug?  
  You know what? I found out that some of the past leaders of my people lied when it came to science, women, children, non-Jews, and Christianity and its leader. I found out that Jesus is the only Messiah and Saviour for everyone on earth. I found out a lot when I prayed to Jesus and said "If you really are who you say you are in the New Testament, please reveal yourself to me and I will follow and trust you forever."  
Guess what. He did and I have been. Sure there are cheap imitations of the real thing (anything of value is counterfeited), but once you really connect with Jesus, you'll know everything you need to know about salvation --- your own salvation!
only is genuine salvation free, it makes a person free!
