The Origin of Today’s Religions

Why All These Religious Divisions?

“God is One,”  Moses put it in writing, and every Torah observant person on earth knew this phrase was referring to the entire “Shema,” (hear and obey).  The Shema was on their heart, (memorized), and taught diligently to every child, while sitting in the house, when walking outside, before bed and upon rising.

The Shema

Hear, O Israel, (The Assembly of YHVH), YHVH is our God, (YHVH) is One!  “You shall love YHVH your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mightDeuteronomy 6:4

“These words, which I am commanding you today, shall be on your heart. “You shall teach them diligently to your sons and shall talk of them when you sit in your house and when you walk by the way and when you lie down and when you rise up…Deuteronomy 6:5; Deuteronomy 6:6Deuteronomy 6:7

Y’shua, (Jesus) Declares The Shema as The Greatest Commandment 

Y’shua, (Jesus) declared, “‘Love the Lord, (YHVH) your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind, (might).’ Matthew 22:37; Mark 12:29
“This is the First and Greatest Commandment.” Matthew 22:38

Judaism, Christianity and Islam Agree God is One

All agree the Creator of the universe is the One and only true God.  All believe they are worshiping the Creator and not the things He created, Romans 1:25.  So when did all these, man-made, religious divisions originate?

The Religion of Judaism Claims to Be Synonymous With Israel

Y’shua came from the line of Judah, as prophesied in Scripture, Micah 5:2; Hebrews 7:14.

Judah is where the religious terms Jewish and Judaism come from, but when did the religion of Judaism originate?

Most ethno-religious Jewish sects began during the Hellenistic period, (323 BCE – 31 BCE), others with the addition of the Talmud, 400 A.D. but the Hasidics, (Pious) as recently as the 1800’s.

True Israel has always comprised a mixed multitude, and the Assembly of our Creator has always been All inclusive; Exodus 12:38Genesis 12:3 

In the 1st Century A.D. Y’shua spoke against the religious experts of Torah for adding their own man-made laws, (legalism).

You shall not add to the word which I am commanding you, nor take away from it, that you may keep the commandments of the LORD, (YHvH) your God which I command you.”  Deuteronomy 4:2; Deuteronomy 12:32; Proverbs 30:6

“Woe to you as well, experts in the law, (Torah)!” He replied. “You weigh men down with heavy burdens, but you yourselves will not lift a finger to lighten their load.” Luke 11:46; Matthew 23:3; Matthew 23:4

Y’shua Did Not Found Chrisitianity

The only Scriptures Y’shua ever quoted from or expounded on, were The Torah, and the Prophets and Writings that matched its plum-line.

1st Century writings of the Apostles had not yet been compiled into the “New Testament.”

Y’shua definitely did not add nor take away anything from The Torah, on the contrary, He said this to those who do:

I tell you truly, until heaven and earth pass away, not a single jot, not a stroke of a pen, will disappear from the Law, (Torah) until everything is accomplished. Matthew 5:18  

“So then, whoever breaks one of the least of these commandments and teaches others to do likewise will be called least in the Kingdom of heaven, but whoever practices and teaches them will be called great in the Kingdom of heaven.” Matthew 5:19

Islam Claims Monopoly

Islam (Submission) originated in the 7th Century A.D.  Claiming to be the true religion of Allah, (God), it originates with Muhammad’s Quran, (The Recitation).  The religion claims, it is not a new religion but the only true religion.  Like the two previous religions, it begins with Adam, and asserts the Quran has re-expressed truth in it’s final form.

  A Muslim is one who follows the teachings of Islam.  Muslims are taught the Torah Was for the Jews and the New Testament for the Christians.  So I hope the previous verse already cleared up that fallacy.  But here’s a new one, the Scriptures have been corrupted.

Can The Living, Unchanging, Perfect Word of our Creator be Corrupted?

The law, (Torah) of the LORD, (YHVH) is Perfect, restoring the soul; The testimony of the LORD, (YHVH) is sure, making Wise the simple.” Psalm 19:7

“For you have been born again, not of perishable seed, but of imperishable, through the Living and Enduring Word of God, (Torah).” 1 Peter 1:23

“the Word of God, (Torah) is Living and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword,..Hebrews 4:12 

Nope, Not according to the Bible or the Quran Either:

The word of thy Lord doth find its fulfilment in truth and in justice: None can change His words: for He is the one who heareth and knoweth all. Surah 6:115 Al-An‘am (Cattle)

Rejected were the apostles before thee: with patience and constancy they bore their rejection and their wrongs, until Our aid did reach them: there is none that can alter the words (and decrees) of Allah. Already hast thou received some account of those apostles. Surah 6:34 Al-An‘am (Cattle)

For them are glad tidings, in the life of the present and in the Hereafter; no change can there be in the words of Allah. This is indeed the supreme felicity. Surah 10:64 Yunus (Jonah)

And recite (and teach) what has been revealed to thee of the Book of thy Lord: none can change His Words, Surah 18:27 Al-Kahf (The Cave)

Say: “O People of the Book! ye have no ground to stand upon unless ye stand fast by the Law, the Gospel, and all the revelation that has come to you from your Lord.” It is the revelation that cometh to thee from thy Lord, that increaseth in most of them their obstinate rebellion and blasphemy. Surah 5:68 Maida (The Table) (See also 4:136)

If thou art in doubt as to what We have revealed unto thee, then ask those who have been reading the Book from before thee: the Truth hath indeed come to thee from thy Lord: so be in no wise of those in doubt. Surah 10:94 Yunus (Jonah)

“Lo! We did reveal the Torah, wherein is guidance and a light” (Sura 5:44-46).

We gave Moses the Book and followed him up with a succession of messengers,” (Sura 2:87).

And before thee also the apostles We sent were but men, to whom We granted inspiration: if ye realize this not, ask of those who possess the Message. Surah 16:43 An-Nahl (the Bee)

Before thee, also, the apostles We sent were but men, to whom We granted inspiration: If ye realise this not, ask of those who possess the Message. Surah 21:7 Al-Anbiya’ (The Prophets)

We have sent thee inspiration, as We sent it to Noah and the Messengers after him: we sent inspiration to Abraham, Isma’il, Isaac, Jacob and the Tribes, to Jesus, Job, Jonah, Aaron, and solomon, and to David We gave the Psalms,” (4:163)

It is He Who sent down to thee (step by step), in truth, the Book, confirming what went before it; and He sent down the Law (of Moses) and the Gospel (of Jesus) before this, as a guide to mankind, and He sent down the criterion (of judgment between right and wrong), (3:3).

In conclusion, the reason we have so many religions is not because our Creator’s Truth has been corrupted, it’s because man has corrupted the Truth with his religions.  

Yet All These Divisive Religions Believe God is One?

“They exchanged the Truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator, who is forever worthy of praise! Amen.” Romans 1:25

“O LORD, (YHVH) my strength and my stronghold, And my refuge in the day of distress, To You the nations will come From the ends of the earth and say, “Our fathers have inherited nothing but falsehood/deception/lies, futility/vanity and things of no profit.” Jeremiah 16:19

Seeking the Only One who gives Spiritual/Lasting Life, is the One Way to find Him, Deuteronomy 4:29; Jeremiah 29:13; Proverbs 8:17Matthew 7:7…
