A Simple Faith for All
AN EDITORIAL by David Horowitz UIWU Founder
More than two thousand years of contradictory opinions leading to chaos and confusion in the won of religion has placed the average man in a dilemma.He is so confused in his belief and worship that he does not know where he stands.A great majority of people, in disappointment and disillusion have completely turned away from traditional ritualistic religion.A small group has turned to newly created sects founded on “science”; others have embraced fantastic cults.A few elect only have clung to the original creed in innocence, honesty and sincerity.No doubt it is of these few that the prophet stated: “A righteous person will live in his belief.”
But, on the whole, organized religion has failed in bringing to the world what it needs.The shepherds themselves, in seeing their flocks dwindling from day to day, now begin to admit this fact.
What is wrong?
All major religions that use the Bible as a source and mainspring have depended upon erroneous, misleading translations and interpretations of the Word resulting in schisms and antagonisms.The Bible in its original tells one story, not two, three, or more.These religions follow more in the footsteps of the interpreters of the Bible, the Rabbis and church fathers, rather than in the footsteps of the plain, simple truth of the Bible itself.It is no wonder then that there exist so many contradictory sects within each differing major creed.
We of United Israel advocate a return to the unadulterated original Scriptures which contain the original covenants, statutes and laws of the One who alone is to be honored and worshipped and to whom all prayers should be directed. . .
We hold that the Bible, accurately translated, is lucid and self-explanatory.
Does “You shall not murder” or “You shall not steal” need any explanation or commentary?The five great books of the Law are written in a very simple style.A child can understand them.
But what is more important, true faith needs no false piety so greatly assumed today by the modern shepherds of religion.The Creator’s ways for man are simple and humane.A life, in action and in conduct, that is consistent here on earth with the laws of Nature’s God—laws simply given in the Pentateuch—answers to the real meaning of holiness.
Enslavement in “religious” man-made dogma not to be found in the Bible itself has led to many of the world’s evils today.Men and women are made to take on unnecessary burdens.The Bible’s ways are natural.A true and loving and understanding Father laid down injunctions for His children by which they would not have to enslave themselves to ways of life which are utterly foreign to the natural laws of this earth.Fantastic promises involving a life of abstraction cannot be of the Father.
The Following constitutes United Israel’s stand:
We believe in the One supreme God, YHVH, the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, the Creator of all things, just in His judgment and requiring no delegated authority.
We believe in the original Hebrew Bible translated and interpreted from its original written form into modern expression of thought, retaining its true meaning without additions, omissions, or alterations.
We believe in the existence of the Ten Lost Tribes of Israel, who are today awakening to their identity and who, according to prophecy, are being reunited with Judah and Benjamin for the fulfillment of YHVH’s covenants with Abraham, Isaac, Jacob and Moses, to the benefit of all peoples.
We believe in all the biblical principles governing the brotherhood relationship of man.
We believe in the observance of the Abrahamic Covenant (Genesis 17:3-14), the Ten Commandments and all other biblical laws as outlined in the Republic of Moses; laws which include the injunctions on food, on marriage and divorce, on true relationship between man and his fellow man, between husband and wife; the biblical Sabbath; the holy days, and all other precepts of life given by YHVH so that our life may be full and prolonged.
We believe in studying, learning, practicing and teaching to all peoples the original biblical truths, honestly and accurately, without pressure, pomp, hypocrisy, or fanaticism.
The above is nothing other than recognition of the true significance of the last declaration of the prophet Malachi whose book closes the Prophets:
Remember the Law of Moses My servant, even the statutes and ordinances which I commanded him in Horeb for all Israel. —Malachi 3:22.
And these words should be understood in the light of the words of Moses himself:
You shall not add to the word which I am commanding you, nor take away from it, that you may keep the commandments of the YHVH your God which I command you. —Deuteronomy 4:2.
