There are many people throughout the world who would quickly
tell you our dilemmas were written about literally
centuries ago in one of this world's oldest books - the Bible.
While others may reject this concept, there is surely something very
special about a book that has lasted so long, been explored so
acutely, and sustains such intense emotions within us.
Are these emotions and theological faiths unfounded? - or is it
far more than 'just an old book'.
This document has had such a huge influence on our world
that even the non-believer would find it difficult to reject
the adjective label of 'sacred'. But surprisingly, it is
not allowed within our public education.
Why is it banned? The problem
is all about the words - and which words - and
then, how they are treated.
Regardless of whether you think these words were actually
inscribed by Moses, attributed to him, or compiled by
early priests, there is a beauty, an intrigue, and a wisdom in these words
difficult to describe. However, the most important
thing to note here is - the words you see here are the
original words. These are the pre-Rome Hebrew letters - and
the only words for these initial verses that are not
someone's 'translation'. If there is anything at all
which is truly sacred - this is it.
And as difficult as our questions are now and always
have been, there is one method that reveals more reliable
answers than any other, regardless of whether the question
is about our diet, our children, or even the existence of God.
To find the truth - seek the roots.
By returning to the roots, we eliminate the biggest
stumbling block when it comes to the Bible in our schools.
Consider; Why is it that such an influential and well known book,
has somehow disappeared from our public schools?
This certainly didn't happen because the book was seen as harmful
to our children, nor did it disappear because a few people
saw it as fiction. There are several elements which
contributed to its disappearance. As already noted, there is
first the level of respect the book should receive. Many
people believe it is the literal Word of God - also known as
'Canon'. This reverence to every word carries forward
to the translations - oddly, perhaps at times even more so than to the original
Hebrew words. These many different translations cause the
next problem. If a school was even allowed
to bring the Bible back into the classroom, the very first question
would simply have to be, "Which one?"
A lot of people don't realize - even something as well known as the "Lord's
Prayer" is different between what Catholics and Protestants quote.
Should the Catholic Bible, with its additional chapters, be used?
Should we use the King James translation? - the NIV? There are
those who greatly dislike any 'Modern' translation. What about
the Book of Mormon? A Jewish child would find any Canon respect toward
the Greek New Testament a little uncomfortable. And the Qur'an?
Put simply; Ask any believer which Bible could be in today's
classrooms and the answer you'll get back is ? - "Mine."
Fortunately, the original words are still there ! - and now understanding them is nowhere
near as difficult as you might imagine. Using the new Root
Character Method you will quickly and easily comprehend every word - and even
more exciting, get a truly inside look at how they viewed their
world. The words they used help define their thinking, but
those words would be far more revealing if we also had a dictionary filled
with their definitions of these words.
The Root Character Method gives us just such a dictionary.
And you are not expected to simply accept it, as we will start at the
historical beginnings and quickly work forward. Every item
we carefully knit together can be easily cross-verified with dozens of other websites.
Additionally, you will find the new method works on every single
word as this interpretation method is entirely consistent. Your
journey will give you a wealth of new Biblical knowledge even
solving many disagreements - and trading thoughts as to how
they envisioned their world - is another strength of the
Internet. You can contribute to the project.
Regardless of whether you are Amish, or atheist, or somewhere in between,
this is a fascinating journey - filled with eye-opening answers. Beginning
with a time before the alphabet even existed, we will be using all the modern interactive
options the Internet can provide. For example, simply click on
the Hebrew word shown here - and many of you will recognize the word
Eloheem - or 'God' in the first book of the Bible. Of the
361 words in the first chapter, that word occurs 32 times. These were
simple words from a far simpler time and with just a little effort
- thanks to the new Root Character Method, you
really can understand them - in less than six days.
In this journey, it is not uncommon for someone to simply glance at the
project and ask, "How dare you mess with the word of God?"
This is a little sad as they don't realize - we agree with them 100%.
But simply look at the original words on the rock above - then
consider all the twists and turns literally hundreds of translations
have taken them through - many times attempting to take this
beautifully simple language and force it into one of the most complicated
of languages in history - our English. Then consider how every
sect insists their particular translation is the correct one
and ask yourself -
who exactly is 'messing with' those words?
And should we also be asking, Why ?
