I will start with the first item. Many of the beliefs and rituals of Christianity are, in fact, based on paganistic beliefs that have been absorbed through the centuries when pagan peoples were "Christianized." Many of their beliefs were assimilated into the beliefs of the church to facilitate bringing them into the faith. I cannot fault many of Mr White's assertions at all.
What I can fault is how Mr White delivers those assertions, which relates to items number two and three. Mr White, in this work, will often begin discussing the paganism of a belief and then start rambling on about something else right in the middle of the discussion. He usually ends each ramble with the assertion that we must return to Torah, as if saying it over and over will cause the reader to do so, as opposed to outlining each belief and then, at the end, asserting that we should return to Torah in one concise, intelligible argument. Also, in several places, he will stop what he is talking about and insert an illustration that is completely independent of his topic and poke fun at another belief, making glib remarks and witticisms. At times, I felt as I was being made fun of for ever believing these paganistic rituals had anything to do with Christianity. As an educated man (with a degree in History), I see this as bad scholarship.Read more ›
Those are the absolute only downsides to this book. I had come across most of the Truth's presented in the book prior to reading it while doing some research into calanders and how/why we keep time the way we do, being a leap year and all it is obvious our Gregorian calander is faulty and not the means of keeping time. Nor is it the means our Creator established.
This book give a thorough presentation of the facts and history of our common practices. It may offend some, but only those who do not want to accept the Truth, and desire to keep those things they have become accustomed to. I recommend than anyone who claims to be a 'believer' or understands they were created, needs to read this book.
We have done away with Christmas, Easter, and all other pagan influences in our lives. This book has changed my life, and I am also grateful to have the Scriptures in its unadulterated form. I have been distributing this book to people who have been undeniably set in my path looking for truth. I highly recommend this book to anyone who genuinely is hungry for truth.
After learning Hebrew and Aramaic, traveling to Israel, and doing my own research I will say that there are several areas of this book that I disagree with. I agree with the fact that Christianity has a lot of paganism involved in it, the same history of Christianity's pagan origin is documented in this and other such books. I disagree in certain areas of this books theology especially surrounding the Name of Elohim (for those who don't know God in English is often used as a translation for the Hebrew words El, Elohim, Eloah, Elah, etc), my reasons are listed below.
The book like some others of its type has some incorrect conclusions about how amongst Jews and Israelis pronunciation of The Name of Elohim became uncertain. Jewish and Samaritan sources both show the process by which The Name of Elohim became uncertain because of 1) corrupt Kohanim after the death of Shimon HaTzadiq around 3 BCE, 2) concern that the corrupt times would cause people to disrespect Elohim 3) loss of the First and Second Temples 4) the social-religious changes that took place after the Roman conquest and the loss of a central Israeli consul.
Most Jews have a plithera of sources on where to find information on the theory's of what the Name of Elohim is, the issue in the Jewish world is that we are not willing to call The Creator by a name that is not certain. When the time is right The Creator will reveal it with 100% certainty.Read more ›
