Who are the Noahides? Over the last 30 years, there has been this movement among Jewish apologists. They claim that God does not want everyone to be Jewish, however God apparently wants Gentiles to follow seven laws that were given to Noah. A plain reading of the Bible shows that these laws weren’t given to Noah, however these laws exist throughout the Old Testament.
Some people like Rabbi Tovia Singer, says that Noahidism is the oldest religion in the world. This is just as fake as saying the that Islam is the oldest in the world. Rabbi Singer says the following on his website:
It may be said that the Noachide movement is the oldest religion in the world.
This is true. It may be said, but it’s a lie. Where were the Noahides in 500 BC, 100 AD, 700 AD, 1200 AD, 1800 AD? They didn’t exist simply because this religion didn’t exist. Noahidism is not the oldest religion in the world but one of the newest. Scientology is even older than Noahidism.
It’s ironic that Jewish apologists will oppose the hypocrisy and inconsistencies of Christian groups that pretend to be Jewish by wearing skullcaps, prayer shawls and going to churches they call synagogues. At the same time they don’t have a problem saying Noahidism is the oldest religion in the world.
These are the seven laws that must be followed by non-Jews according to Noahidism:
- The prohibition of idolatry
- The prohibition of blasphemy
- The prohibition of murder
- The prohibition of theft
- The prohibition of immoral sexual relations
- The prohibition of eating the limb of a living animal
- The commandment to establish courts to enforce the commandments
Christians follow all of these laws though Jewish apologists will say that the Trinity is idolatry, at the same time not being able to prove it from the Hebrew Bible.
The problem with these laws is that they are very minimal. While these laws need to be followed, they won’t make a society better. There is no command to love your neighbour. There is no command to honour your father and your mother. There is no command to feed the poor. There is no command to repent of your sins. There is no command to hate evil. There is no command to accept the Prophets or the Messiah. There is no command to preach the message of God to all nations.
Not only is this movement fake, it doesn’t make humanity better in the slightest. These laws are so incomplete. Unlike Noahidism, the Catholic faith will make a civilization better. If Europe had adopted Noahidism instead of Catholicism, no one would be loving their neighbours, feeding the poor, and many other important things. It would be a very immoral and evil society.
Fortunately this movement has almost no traction or following and going nowhere fast. Most Jews don’t even know about this movement. Only a minority of Jews engage in promoting this fraudulent religion. They know that it doesn’t go back to the days of Noah but the 20th Century. It’s a lie, a scam, and a fraud. It’s a tool of Satan to keep people from Christ and his Church.
