Where do I even begin? I guess I’ll begin with the beginning. And that is the Source of Life, the Almighty King, blessed be the Great Name of HaShem/God/Allah (BTW that’s my Holy Trinity ;)).
Let me tell you a joke: a Muslim, a Christian and a Jew walked into a bar.. wait! that isn’t a joke. That is, in essence the story of “Blogging Theology.” I stumbled upon this blog a few months ago while surfing the web for interesting stuff to read. I found lots of garbage and then by miracle, even more garbage. And then I bumped into a post on Blogging Theology.
Oh sorry, I didn’t introduce myself. Awkward. My name is Mozer. I’m a Hasidic Jew born in Lakewood NJ, and now live with my family in Jerusalem, the city of David and Solomon. I study Jewish philosophy and Law and am currently enrolled in a program that will ordain me [God Willing] as a rabbi and Judge in Rabbinical Courts. (More on my outlooks and opinions, poetry and bi-polar writings can be found on my blog)
Back to Blogging Theology, the more I read, the more I wanted to read. I found thoughts regarding the Trinity that I’ve been thinking about, and was educated on many Muslim teachings I’ve never heard. I bumped into the silent majority of Muslims who aren’t terrorists, and yet suffer as if it was them who committed the horrendous crimes. Eventually, I came to the realization that the majority isn’t so silent at all, they’re pretty outspoken. But to that no one wants to listen.
I came to appreciate Paul, as a man who values and respects opinions different than his, and in that sense I’ve learned a lot from this website. It encouraged me to think out of my box, and respect a genuine seeker regardless of his doctrine. I know Paul and I have different feelings regarding Israel and Zionism, but it doesn’t matter. Why? Well, that’s a good question, partly answered by the previous sentence, and for the other part I’ll get back to in a later post.
Thank you Paul for inviting me to write whatever I want, you’ll probably regret it… Just kidding! [not really, though]
I look forward sharing some time and insight with the Blogging Theology community!
