Analysis of an anti-missionary's comments

FACEBOOK POST BY ANTI-MISSIONARY Wil'Liam Scott Hall: 

I knew a woman once, that was continuously abused by her husband and who constantly cheated on her... but because of her "love" for him, she would "never" leave him.

This is the case for so many Christians in their "relationship" with jesus, even though you show them, PROVEN in the Hebrew Scriptures that he is not the "christ", they will "never" leave jesus because of their "love" for him.  Only to continue believing although the proof says otherwise.

I know the good Christian will counter:  "because he first loved ME"...but that doesn't change the Truth.

MESSIANIC RESPONSE:

Let’s see how many errors we can find in Wil’Liam Scott Hall’s poorly-written comments: 

[1]  “I knew a woman once, that was continuously abused by her husband.”  First of all, the use of "that" to describe a woman is incorrect because people are not “that”; they are  “who.”  He should have written, “I knew a woman once WHO….” 

[2]  Furthermore, Wil’Liam Scott Hall’s comments go directly in the Face of  יהוה who said HE would send a prophet who was to do everything He ordered him to do.  No matter how many ways anti-missionaries attempt to debunk that fact or twist "Hebrew Scripture" to force it to comply with their will, that prophet was Y’shua!  (Prophecies, Talmudic evidence for Messiah at 30 BCE, Feasts fulfilled.) 

Deuteronomy 18: 15 "ADONAI will raise up for you a prophet like me from among yourselves, from your own kinsmen. You are to pay attention to him, 16 just as when you were assembled at Horev and requested ADONAI your God, 'Don't let me hear the voice of ADONAI my God any more, or let me see this great fire ever again; if I do, I will die!' 17 On that occasion ADONAI said to me, 'They are right in what they are saying. 18 I will raise up for them a prophet like you from among their kinsmen. I will put my words in his mouth, and he will tell them everything I order him. 

[3]   Unlike that poor woman’s abusive husband, Y’shua - YHWH's Son and  Divine Messiah (see Isaiah 53 and our article) has never abused anyone!   The only thing he was guilty of was being born into a sinful world run by people with limited human mindsets, who love to employ personal opinions that don’t necessarily line up with Scripture; a world where he was rejected and killed by evil, unruly and arrogant people who despised his message, which was simply this: 

Luke 4: 43 "But he (Yeshua/Jesus) said, "I must preach the good news of the Kingdom of God to the other towns also, because that is why I was sent."

Yeshua said He came to do HIS FATHER's will; not His own! 

John 6: 35. Y'shua said to them, I am the Bread of Life. Whoever comes to me will not hunger. And whoever believes in me will not ever thirst. 36. But I have said to you that you have seen me, and you do not believe. 37. All who my Father has given to me will come, and whoever comes not to me I will cast outside! 38. For I came down from heaven,[1] not to do my will, but to do the will of Him who sent me. 39. And this is His will, that of Him who sent me, that all that He has given to me I do not lose even one. 40. For this is the will of my Father, that all who see the Son and believe in Him, will have life that is eternal. And I will raise him up on the last day. (AENT) 

FOOTNOTE:  As in the context of Miltha (the Word) or the "Manifestation" or the "Will of" YHWH coming down from heaven to do the Will of YHWH upon earth; his Spirit is of YHWH but his nephesh (soul) and body are human and temporal. This shows that Yeshua was NOT in charge; HIS FATHER WAS! (But yet the anti-missionaries, using flawed Christian logic to their advantage, keep attempting to twist him into something else....)

The Apostles verified what Y'shua did - and Paul reiterated that the teachings of Y'shua neither veered from Torah nor the Prophets: 

Luke 8: 1. And it happened after these things that Y'shua was going around in the cities and in the villages and was preaching and declaring the Kingdom of Elohim. 

Acts 28: 23 "From morning till evening the Apostle Paul explained and declared the Kingdom of God and tried to convince people about Yeshua from the Law of Moses and from the Prophets." 

Acts 24: 14. But this indeed I (Paul) acknowledge, that in that same doctrine of which they speak, I do serve the Elohim of my fathers, believing all the things written in Torah and in the prophets. 

[4]  The tone of Wil’Liam Scott Hall’s overall note is that the woman should leave her husband.  Well, perhaps that woman should have left her abusive husband, but as the Gospels reveal, our divine Messiah Y’shua was never abusive (except to those who desecrated the Temple), so there's no reason to "leave" or "divorce" him!  Not to mention, in Scripture we see that God hates divorce (Malachi 2:16 “For I hate divorce,” said יהוה Elohim of Yisra’ĕl, “and the one who covers his garment with cruelty,” said יהוה of hosts.” Y'shua is YHWH's divine Messiah and to reject him is to reject the One who sent him (John 10:30), and those who do reject him are condemning their soul to an eternity without God (John 14:6, John 6:44).  So Wil'Liam Scott Hall wants to lead us into sin by ridiculing us into rejecting YHWH's gift of His Messiah!

By the way, Y’shua’s  teaching on divorce is equally strong:  Matthew 19:3. And the Pharisees drew near to him there, and were tempting him and saying, ”Is it Lawful for a man to put away his wife for any cause?”  4. But he answered and said to them, Have you not read, that He who created from the beginning, He created them male and female?[ Genesis 1:27; 5:2]  5. And he said, Because of this, a man will leave his father and his mother and will be joined to his wife, and they will be both of them one flesh.[ Genesis 2:24]  6. Henceforth, they will not be two, rather one flesh.  Therefore, what Elohim has united, man should not separate.  Divorce was never part of God’s original design (Matthew 19:8). 

[5]  Just because Wil’Liam Scott Hall rejects Y’shua and spews poison about him, doesn’t mean that Scripture is wrong, that YHWH didn’t do what He said He would do, or that Y’shua didn’t fulfill what he came to do (and still intends to do in the future)!  No matter what Hall and his ilk espouse, Y'shua was/is our Messiah!  Why should we leave him, just because there are people with skewed viewpoints and hatred in their hearts for "Jesus"?  (People, who - by the way - accept the man-made Talmud and other rabbinic writings, but scoff at the idea of the New Testament....)  To view more of our anti-missionary responses, please check out our Countering the Jewish Anti-Missionaries page.
