Cincinnati Israelite (Newspaper) - October 5, 1860, Cincinnati, Ohio
Printed b Bloch a co a to. 33 West sixth st., Bolson main and Walnut for Isaac i. Wise editor amp proprietor. I h of i d a a. O to r e h_j�%_j860�trciicw it an article in the i new York Christian advocate. 3t behoves religious men to be charitably disposed to those who differ with them in religious opinions. We believe tilts to be or at least it ought to be Tho lending doctrine in our Intercourse with Mon of other creeds. Charitable sentiments Are the direct contrary of prejudices both in essence and effect. While Tho Roan of charitable inclination sees things in a pleasant Light prejudice dims the eyesight of the observer to All that in Good in the opposite system magnifies its deficiencies anti invents new faults. In All and the lest feelings of Charity to our of the a 3\rc Christian advocate we must still say the author of the Leader of sept 20 is blindfolded with prejudices and therefore heeds neither logic history truth nor fairness. In speaking of religious failures he premises his article thus 44 How often do we hear the cry christianity is a failure we do not propose to discuss the question now but beg the Reader to observe that ail other systems of religion Are manifestly failures and these systems have not been few nor imperfectly tried. As when Jeroboam would withhold Bis people from Jerusalem he set up the Golden calves in Bethel and Dan so in All Ages lawgiver and the founders of states finding human motives too weal for the government of men have feigned divine authority. But what have All the religions of men done but corrupt and impair the primitive Faith then be shows the failure of paganism Moharos deism Judaism and the reign of reasons Bleb brings him to this conclusion 14 into the causes of these failures it is not our purpose to enter. We rest at the conclusion that Man is shut up to the gospel As his Only Hope. Let political reforms go Forward until Man everywhere shall stand Dis enthralled and erect in exalted manhood let knowledge descend to lower and lower Levels until its lights beam equally Over the Valley and the Mountain top let science go Forward in her career of discovery until she obtains the most perfect Mastery Over matter and Over mind let Art multiply the conveniences the comforts and Tho enjoyments of men until every sense is satiated with Delight let Commerce cabling All reas and interweaving All lands bind the nations into a common brotherhood a 3et philosophy a Bright dream of human perfectibility will Novelle realized until the christians Hope is How the Good Man came to this Gigantic conclusion from the Given premises is indeed Mach More than we can Tell because All other religious systems proved a failure christianity did not there is More sense certainly in the conclusion because All religious systems proved a failure christianity proves a failure. But he wishes not to discuss this question of course not he Only wishes to prove How All religious systems beside his on Are a failure to do which he says Quot the three forms which they have assumed Are paganism Mohamed ism and per Vertod Judaism. Of the first Little need be said. We have Only to Point you to the widow burning on the funeral pile of Ber husband to the Mother casting Ber babe into the Ganges to the Blind devotee suspending himself by Hooks in his bleeding flesh or rolling his emaciated body across a Peninsula to atone for his sins to juggernaut crushing his victims beneath his slowly moving wheels to the altars of Dahomey smoking with whole Het Combs of human beings to the Pacific islands thinned with infanticide reddened with fratricide glutted with cannibalism. Now Are you ignorant of the impurities of idolatry As abhorrent As its cruelties. These Are not its unusual but its general results not its accidental but its natural consequences. Man without revelation has ideas of supernal beings but being depraved his fears outrun his Hopes and invest the gods of his imagination with malignant attributes. Mohamed ism is a reformation of paganism. Its author borrowed from revelation Many fundamental ideas the Unity of god Tho future state the rectitude of Providence Tho duty of opposing error the rewards and punishments of another life. Its fundamental error was that it sought to bring Man and god face to face without a mediator a thing not to be done. 4 if go gtd is every where present show Bim to me said a roman emperor to a jew. 4 he is too glorious to be seen by mortals was the reply. The emperor sneered Aud insisted 4 tot Methe. Is then said the jew 4 first try you upon one of his it was noon and walking out with the emperor the jew pointing to the Sun said 4 look at him there is a Sublime philosophy in the incident. Though Jess corrupting than paganism Mohamed ism has failed to regenerate Mankind. What More. Intemperate than the Crosa cd legged opium smoking Mohammedan what More cruel than the turkish Cim Eter what More licentious than the moslem a harem Mohamed ism like the Pale horse of the apocalypse has death before it and hell after. And these Are its legitimate fruits. Its precepts allow each Follower four wives and As Many concubines. Its carnal Paradise invites to pollution and its highest seats and most Beautiful hours being reserved for the Warrior provoke to Battle and carnage. It has been revived in the shape of mormonism under american civilization and with like if we were a my Amedan we would an a ser this abuse of religion somewhat in this manner christianity is a reformation of paganism. Its Amber borrowed from revelation Many fundamental ideas a the Unity of god of which the priests made a Trinity the future state which the priests disfigured by a hell Brimstone and everlasting torment the rectitude of Providence which the priests almost annul by condemnation of those who do not believe As they do the duty of opposing error which the priests make void by setting in inquired Faith on the throne of revelation and reason the rewards and punishments of another life which the priests disfigure bar their talking of subjects of which they know its fundamental error was that it sought to separate god from Man by an imagined mediator a god Man taken from Pagan conceptions. Though less corrupting than paganism christianity Bas failed to regenerate Mankind. What More intemperate than the Black legged tobacco chewing whisky drinking Christian what More cruel than the italian Bandit the Spanish bravado the English and american prize fighters rowdies and gamblers what Moro licentious than mediaeval Nunn eries modern brothels and such houses which we dislike to name beside the system of concubinage disgracing Many families and the Poison the Absconder &c., a. To we would transcribe the accusations of the advocate if we were a mob Amedan a my would conclude with the historical notices of the Christian wars persecution and slaughtering of heretics inquisitions Auto de is and such other Small things of which the advocate takes no notice and the to Lia Medan would have As much4 proof on his Side As the advocate on his. But we being no Mohammedan do not intend to defend this cause we arc going to listen now to what is said of us. The advocate then continues % Judaism is a divine religion though it was not designed to save Man but to school him for a Savior to preserve the knowledge of god the obligations of Man and tile Promise of deliverance until the coming of Christ. It had indeed a saving Effie act but to those Only whose Faith led them above the types to the great Antitype. But Israel not Content with god s plan would Pervert Judaism to salvation. What was the result the nation Sank lower and lower until it reached the idolatry of surrounding nations from which it was not recovered until it had suffered the Captivity of of we had not read this piece of Absurdity with our own eyes we could scarcely believe that in the year i860 a Man should write such things. A divine religion without the design of saving Man is a Novelty or rather an anomaly. God revealed his will on mount Sinai through Moses and the prophets not indeed to save Man but to prepare him for the methodist hell for if he is not saved he is a candidate for hell according to the methodist doctrines. 44 it bad a saving Efficacy Quot but <4it was not designed to save the Good Man we fear lost his balance of mind when he wrote Quot Israel would Pervert Judaism to is it not a horrid shocking crime to seek salvation in die words of god i Polly never went so far As to say that idolatry was the result of israelis seeking salvation in the words of god i. A. The astronomer s observing the motion of the stars resulted in the discovery of opium smoking or Tho voyage of Columbus to the Cost resulted in the Black plague in London. It is too ridiculous when god revealed his will on mount Sinai he said nothing of a Savior but commanded us to observe the Law of the covenant and promised us to be Bis people. We need no Savior for we Are saved 41 our redeemer is god Zebarth the holy one of Israel is his name 44 Israel is saved by god an everlasting we Are called 44 the sons of god/4 and the children of Tho House need no mediator to make intercession for them with the father who promised us to to nigh unto us whoever and whenever e l Ith we Call on him. We As a nation never sacrificed our fellow Man that we should need the Symbol of a sacrificed god. We never were an idolatrous nation though Kings j priests or other individuals May have gone astray hence we wanted no Mother of god to replace the Venus or Juno or a son of god to replace the sons of Jove no dying a _ god for a prometheus no incarnations of. Vishnu no resurrection for Romulus we needed nothing of the kind therefore we do not have it if was not coined for the gentiles lost in absurdities Given to error and immorality needed such a Compromise Between truth and error they badly wanted a Savior but we need no such thing. If however strangers come to instruct the sons of the House on the nature Ami will of their father absurdities like those of the advocate Are inevitable. It behoves them to come and be instructed by those who must know Best what the father ii a. It Bounds very foolish to us for men who Are perfect strangers in the words of god which they know Only by a translation or at Best by artificial Means to come to instruct us whose study it has been for thirty three centuries who lived and died with and for the words of god. The result of Judaism is that it outlasted All other religious and philosophical systems and the Little truth which Mankind possesses is taken from our sacred shrine after 33 centuries notwithstanding the wickedness of the gentiles we still exist and worship god As our fathers did we arc As intelligent moral charitable and civilized As your Best men Are but we have no irrational dogmas no deadening doctrines no opposition to science no absurdities. This is the result. We Are not in Palestine because we arc in other countries but our religion is not for Palestine but for the world. If our time permit we will have something More to say on this subject. Life of rabbi Moses Ben Daimon commonly called jul Almon idea. By a. A. Benisch. Con tided frown no. 12 medical. I.

I Gereth Teman epistle to the South this was originally written in arabic and subsequently translated into hebrew under the title of Petach Tikvah door of Hope this version As Well As the latin Transl Siun have been printed. This epistle written in 1174 seethe letter to the sages of Marseilles was addressed to the jews inhabiting the countries of the South in order to strengthen them in their Faith and to inspire them with fortitude under the religious persecution to which they were then subject and to caution them against the imposition of a pretended Messiah then endeavouring to mislead the jews. The occurrence which called Forth the epistle is thus related by Mair Nonides in this Quot a Man arose Twenty two years Back in the South country who stated that he was a messenger sent to prepare the Way for the coming of Messiah. He further said that the King Messiah would reveal himself in the South country. Upon this Many people both jews and arabs assembled and he wandered about in the mountains leading them astray and calling out a come with me and let us go out meet Messiah for he sent me to you to make oven the path for him. And our Brethren in the South country wrote to my a Long letter informing me of his manners and habits and of the innovations introduced by him into the prayers and of what he told them. They farther stated that they had witnessed such and such of his miracles and they asked my opinion of him. I inferred from the letter that this unfortunate Man was insane without any learning but still fearing god and that what he said lie had done was All a lie. Fearing for the jews there i wrote an explicit epistle on Messiah his characteristics and the signs of the times in which he is to appear and warned them to caution the pretender lest he perish and the congregations with him. After a year he was taken prisoner and All his adherents fled from one of the Kings of Arabia who took him prisoner said to him a what Hast thou done upon which he replied Aly lord or King i speak the truth for i have acted at the comm pm at the the King said what proof boat thou he replied Cut off my head and i shall be restored to life and be As before.1 the King said there is no stronger proof than this and if it Bobo i and the whole world will believe in at the command of the King Hie head was cat off and the jews of Many places were heavily fined. There Are still however Many silly persons who say be Pill be restored to life and ride from Bis he egg Roth Leba Maor Hagadon epistles to the . This is a collection of
