The revealed “Secret of the Universe”
Unlike what is taught by Christians and Moslems :
It was revealed to Moses at Mount Sinai that Judaism is not the only true way to God. It is not for every person. The God has revealed different ways to other people. You can have “your own path”
Gentiles are not responsible to observe the commandments of the Sinai covenant, as are the Jews.
Universal commandments were given by God to all mankind through Adam and Noah, and are included within the Bible. These universal commandments and the details of their observance all comes from the Torah Revealed at Sinai. These universal commandments are known as the “the seven laws of Noah”.
These 7 laws include :
1.Do not worship Idols
2.Do not use the Name of God in Vain
3.Do not kill
4.Do not act in a sexually immoral manner
5.Do not steal
6.Do not eat the limb of a living animal-no animal cruelty
7.Establish courts of Justice
These seven laws of the Righteous Gentile are similar to the 613 laws of the Torah for the Jew. They have many different levels of understanding and many details of application. Most aspects of the Torah are included within them.
The Gentile, like the Jew, is required to know and serve G-d.
A Gentile who observes these laws is called a “Righteous” Gentile.
Elijah the Prophet teaches in Tana D’vei Eliyahu, (Eliyahu Rabbah 9)
that a Gentile like a Jew can receive Ruach HaKodesh
(The Holy Spirit) in accordance to his/her actions.
He or she can cultivate and thus acquire Ruach HaKodesh if one so chooses,
The sages say :
“a Gentile who studies Torah is like a High Priest.”
