Rosends wrote: In Jewish thinking, there are what we call 613 commandments (the "Taryag mitzvot"). However, it is important to note that even in biblical/temple times, there was no expectation that every person observed every commandment. If you take even a cursory look at the list


you will see that some are observed by the average person passively, some are easily done during the course of daily life, and some are for specialized times, places and/or people so they are simply not incumbent upon the average person.

It is also essential to understand that each of these 613 serves as a foundation for other "rules" which govern daily life. There are codes of law which are just as binding, and provide the detail about how to live, but which are not explicitly listed as divine commandment. So while the list of textual mitzvot says simply to sanctify the sabbath, we have an entire corpus of law about exactly HOW one does that. The oral law clarifies and explains the process and method by which one can follow the written law. The one without the other is useless.

So if someone says that the expectation was that every person "keep" all 613, that is inevitably in error.

There are a lot of dos and don'ts in the 613 commandments. But I could not find any commandment that tells Jews to be 'likeable'. With 3000 years of persecution, expulsion and antisemitism, one would think a commandment to be 'likeable' might have help Jews overcome the burden of 613 commandments that still left them undeserving of proper recognition throughout their history.

I don't mean to be disparaging. But would adding one more commandment to be likeable to the existing 613 be so difficult?

Would adding that same commandment to be likeable have saved Jesus who was a Jew and stopped at the 613 commandments? Why didn't Jesus add the commandment to be likeable himself?

jesus was bound to the laws. He declared:

Matthew 5:17 Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets. I have not come to abolish them, but to fulfill them. 

Christians are no more likeable than Jews because they too stop short of being likeable. In fact they follow even less laws than Jews having dropped circumcision and dietary restrictions.

Would adding that same commandment to be likeable have saved Jesus who was a Jew and stopped at the 613 commandment and never tried to be likeable. Any wonder he was rejected and crucified.  Why didn't Jesus add the commandment to be likeable himself?

And your response was an incomplete sentence that made no sense. 

You don't that rule, God judges

You dont need to be likeabl;e
--> @Dr.Franklin
You don't need to be likeable
That explains why all those women dumped you.  You were not likeable and didn't think you needed to be likeable. Same reason the Jews suffered 3000 years of antisemitism.... They never tried to be likeable.


You actually prove my point.

We know you are lying. That is why  all those women dumped you. You are a liar too.
--> @Harikrish
No I'm not

No I'm not
You just said several times in your last few posts you lied. That makes you a serial liar.

I lied about women dumping me, it was a joke to trigger you

You confessed in public about your bad experiences with men and women before I raised concerns about your mental health. I had to point to your confessions you made to DDO members as evidence of your mental illness. Here you are lying it was posted to me. Lying is never a joke. Besides you are on a religion forum where lying is never acceptable. Have you no shame left?
--> @Harikrish
It was a joke, I'm trolling you LOLS
--> @Dr.Franklin
It was a joke, I'm trolling you LOLS
Where is the joke in your confession where several women dumped you and you turned to men who turned you into a faggot? 
If it is a joke why haven't you recovered? 
--> @Harikrish
I made it up
--> @Dr.Franklin
I made it up
So you are admitting once again all the bad experiences in your life like being dumped by several women then turning to men by becoming a faggot you made it into a joke. Why did you make yourself the object of your joke? Was it so people would laught at you? You never spoke about anything good happening to you. You would have to make that up too. But you figured they would be less funny.

Thats like the Jesus story. If Jesus died a normal death there would be little to talk about. But being mocked, beaten, ridiculed and nailed to a cross made for more entertaining conversation. That gave Jesus the incentive not to be likeable. Despised he was and rejected and crucified.

IT was funny trolling you

IT was funny trolling you.
Lying on a religion forum is not trolling.
You were making public confessions about your shamed life. Your failed relationships and  frequent sexual abuse after you turned into a faggot. Those were your desperate pleas for help. We all heard you.
I suggested you get a whoopee cushion for starters and put you on an Aspirin Therapy program.
I even put  an end to your plagiarism.
