בס"ד This is a blog for Jews who feel a sense of deep identification with HaYachad (Dead Sea Sect). This group is for Jews who feel nostalgia and longing for a Judaism that was, and a profound yearning for it to be again. Our way leads to the Self-realization and, on an even more deeply satisfying level, the Mutual-Realization of Mashi'ach. That is what differentiates us from HaPrushim.

Does God Exist?

Uploaded by SilverRedIndigo on Sep 15, 2011

I always get a good chuckle from discussions that ask the oddly-formulated question: "Does God exist?", whether those considering the matter are theists, agnostics or atheists - they all miss the point entirely.

I hope this video will give a more clear perspective on the matter.

Two very important teachings upon which all Orthodox Jews agree and which are standard, mainstream normative Judaism will show that what I say in this video are not simply my ideas, but Judaism as accepted by all learned Jews. If you search these quotes, you will see that they are found throughout Jewish learning.

The first is from the Prophet Yishayahu, and so certainly no Orthodox Jew is going to go against it:

55:8 For My thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways My ways, saith the LORD.

The second teaching is Rabbinic:

"The Torah speaks in the language of men."

It is none the less true when God speaks of Itself in terms of existing as it is true when God talks about It's mouth, hand, it's heart or its anger and so forth.
