The Sin of Jeroboam

We receive the Aish HaTorah (“Fire of the Torah”) email newsletter, which has some interesting articles on a range of subjects regarding the orthodox Jewish experience and perspective. On occasion we respond to an article on their site (, where they publish letters from subscribers in the comments section linked to the article. Oftentimes they don’t post our letters because we challenge the lies they believe and promote in the name of their religion.

They prefer to hide the truth they can’t refute, in order to maintain the illusion of the lies they collectively believe. The Truth isn’t going anywhere, however; sooner or later all must face Him. He, the Lord Jesus Christ, hasn’t come to condemn Israel, but to save her.

Here is a rejected letter from this week’s newsletter, written in response to an article (My Long Road Home) by a so-called “Christian” convert to orthodox Judaism:

“Yehudah,” the author of this article, is greatly misinformed and mistaken, if not outright lying. He writes: “…the New Testament says that God created a new ‘Israel’ out of Christians and canceled the Torah.” It doesn’t say that, at all.

Jesus Himself said:

“Do not think that I have come to destroy the Law or the Prophets. I have not come to destroy but to fulfill. For truly I say to you, Till the heaven and the earth pass away, not one jot or one tittle shall in any way pass from the Law until all is fulfilled” (Matthew 5:17-18).

The apostle Paul said:

“Do we then make the Law void through faith? Let it not be! But we establish the Law” (Romans 3:31).


Romans 11:25-28
(25) For I do not want you to be ignorant of this mystery, brothers, lest you should be wise within yourselves; that blindness in part has happened to Israel, until the fullness of the nations has comes in.
(26) And so all Israel shall be saved; as it is written, “There shall come out of Zion the Deliverer, and He will turn away ungodliness from Jacob.
(27) For this is My covenant with them, when I have taken away their sins.”
(28) Indeed as regards the gospel, they are enemies for your sakes. But as regards the election, they are beloved for the fathers’ sakes.

Every line of the article could be debunked. But this should suffice. A relationship with the God of Israel doesn’t come through tradition. All the servants of God in the Tanakh heard directly from Him. Neither the author nor his handlers have this relationship. It hasn’t even occurred to them that without this relationship, they have no credibility.

Aish is like King Jeroboam, who caused Israel to sin. He didn’t want them going up to Jerusalem (to Jesus), so he made them idols of gold (Torah made into manmade customs, as with the Talmud). He also “made a house of high places, and made priests of the lowest of the people…” (1 Kings 12:31). “Yehudah” is the lowest of people, a fool Aish uses to support their false claim to represent God.

From: Mary Sent: October 13, 2015 2:56 PM To: Victor Hafichuk Subject: What an awesome testimony Victory, I find myself reading your testimony like I am ready my own written book.  I am in Charis Bible College 4th year.  The Lord started showing me scriptures that didn’t convey the same message as I was being taught. Our Spirit is perfect but our souls and body aren’t and won’t be until we receive our glorified bodies.  I just couldn’t wrap mind head around that.  or We shouldn’t sin but if we do, thank God for Jesus.  He justified all sin.  I was actually spiritually throwing up.  That ate at me. Andrew teaches the true word of God but always but a twist on it.  He just taught about Pride and then said that Jesus died for all our sins. He has this body, soul and spirit book that is only his opinion but in order for it to work I have to either ignore scripture or twist it to fit. The Lord showed me that he died breaking the dominion of sin, The cross keeps us from sin not in it. Anyway, Jesus woke me up telling me that his when people say they believe they don’t.  I woke up in tears.  I love him so much. I can’t believe all the scripture that tell us what we will must do to obtain what the Lord so purposely died for us to have is not being taught.   By listening to Jimmy S.  That’s when I discovered true salvation without works message.  I know he is on your list but the truth is if it’s true still works. Do you have any teaching on the Spirit....

Diabolical Doctrine: It's Impossible Not to Sin
Devils love this one. Admit defeat and lose. Jesus says, “Go and sin no more,” but Satan says it’s impossible to do as Jesus commands. Jesus says, “Be perfect even as your heavenly Father is perfect,” and man says, “Impossible!” But whoever said anything about trusting ourselves for righteousness?
