Using habits to set yourself apart

Use habits to set yourself apart

In order for us to lead a set apart life, we need to do the actions that will produce good fruit. Most of us know what these are, yet we struggle to make it happen. Can we use the modern study of habits to bring us closer to these acts of righteousness? We have heard so many bad reports of tradition that most people are scared of the concept of establishing habits. Let us see if we can find a balance.

Tefillin – To use or not to use?

Written by Schalk_and_Elsa on . Posted in Prayer

After our previous article on prayer, we have done some study on the traditions and customs that surround prayer. One of the topics that have come up in our discussions about prayer, is the use of tefillin or phylacteries. People wonder if the Jewish interpretation of Scripture is valid. Should we interpret the verses literally as they do? Should we also be using these black boxes when we pray? Or, did the church fathers get it right when they said this is not to be taken literally? We investigate what Scripture really says to see if we can come to a conclusion.

Enoch calendar based on a solar cycle

We have already discussed the lunar calendar and it’s origin in a number of articles. However, we have not yet addressed the topic of the solar calendar – also known as the Enoch calendar. Some groups are promoting the Enoch calendar as the “original” calendar of YHVH. This teaching has a lot of impact on our beliefs. We need to investigate this teaching to understand all the ripple effects that it causes. Let us do a detailed study of the Enoch calendar and the calendar of the Essenes. The more we know about this calendar the better we can decide how Scriptural this really is.
