Sheva Mitzvot Ben Noah
« on: September 13, 2006, 09:05:43 PM »
   At the Dawn of creation G-d gave the first human being six rules to follow so that His world would be sustained. Later, after the Great Flood, He charged Noah with one more.
  According to Jewish tradition, there are 70 families with 70 paths within the great Family of Man. And each individual has his or her path within a path. But there is one universal basis for us all.
   Non-Jews who lives by these rules, acknowledging that they are what G-d wants of us, is concidered by the Jewish tradition to be righteous. That person is a builder with a share in the world as it is meant to be.
  Here are those seven instructions according to ancient tradition, with a touch of elaboration:
 
    1. Acknowledge that there is only one G-d who is Infinite and Supreme above all things. In this command is included acts such as prayer, study and meditation.
    2. Respect the Creator. As frustrated and angry as you may be, do not vent it by cursing your Maker.
    3. Do not murder. Each human being, just as Adam and Eve, comprises an entire world.
    4. Respect the institution of marriage. the marriage of a man and a women is a reflection of the oneness of G-d and his creation. Dishonesty in marriage is an assault on that oneness.
    5. Do not steal. Deal honestly in all your business. By relying on G-d rather than on our own conniving, we express our trust in Him as the Provider of Life.
    6. Respect G-d's creatures. Do not cause unnecessary suffering to any creature.
    7. Maintain justice. Justice is G-d's business, but we are given the charge to lay down necessary laws and enforce them whenever we can. When we right the wrongs of society, we are acting as partners in the act of sustaining the creation.
The Academy of Elijah taught, whoever studies the laws (of the Torah) every day, (he) is guaranteed to have a share in the World to Come.

‏119:139 צִמְּתַתְנִי קִנְאָתִי כִּישָׁכְחוּ דְבָרֶיךָ צָרָי
My zeal incenses me, for my adversaries have forgotten Your words.
‏119:141 צָעִיר אָנֹכִי וְנִבְזֶה פִּקֻּדֶיךָ, לֹא שָׁכָחְתִּי.
 I am young and despised; I have not forgotten Your precepts.

" A fool does not realize, and an unwise person does not understand this (i.e. the following:) When the wicked bloom like grass, and the evildoers blossom (i.e. when they seem extremly successful), it is to destroy them forever (i.e. they are rewarded for their few good deeds in this World, and they will have no portion in the World to Come!)

Please explain. Noah (who the Noahide laws are based on) was righteous in the eyes of G-d and he remained that way - as a deeply religious man.

He who repudiates idolatry accepts in principle the whole of the Torah.

I'll take myself as an example. I'm believe in God and not in the christian monotheism. For a while I decided that b'nei Noah was the thing for me, since it was something I could relate to. However, now that it has been a while I feel that I am more and more adopting a judaistic way of looking at religion, and feels that I need to belong to a group of people. It's like you share the jewish way of looking at God, but still you are not a part of a religion.

Well, certain of their practices are idolatrous e.g. the pilgrimage to the Kabaa or black stone of Mecca, which the ancient Bedouins treated as an idol. 

But, if a Muslim repudiated the Hajj and certain other elements of the religion, for example the hatred of Jews preached in the Koran, then he would be a righteous Muslim I think ... are there any righteous Muslims out there?
