Gen. 24:48 — ואברך את יהוה אלהי אברהם אשר הנחני בדרך אמת
Deut. 6:6-7 — והיו הדברים האלה אשר אנכי מצוך היום על לבבך ודברת בם בלכתך בדרך
Acts 24:14 — אני מודה כי אני בדרך ההיא אשר יקבוה מפלגה בה אני עובד את אלהי אבותינו וכי אני מאמין בכל הכתוב בתורה ובנביאים



Why has nothing changed in 2,000 years?!

This week brings us more from the wild and wacky world of kosher certification. We've had cows going on kosher for Pesach diets in advance of the holiday; we've heard about endemic corruption and scandals (some of them quite appalling); and of course the whole rabbinic idea of "kashrut" is very different from the guidelines in Torah anyway.

Now, apparently, only hydroponic lettuce is "kosher" (because, of course, that's what Moshe and those guys ate way back when). Some Jerusalem restaurants are revolting against the ignorant and oppressive kashrut commissars.

Meanwhile, the same kosher certifiers will not only work on shabbat, but do so in order to sanction the mass violation of one of the most important commandments our God gave us.

It's not really difficult for us modern Israelis to understand what Yeshua meant 2,000 years ago when he said: "Blind guides! You strain out a gnat and swallow a camel!" [Matt. 23:24]
