# 08370 :  Kabbalah
Kabbalah is an ancient wisdom that empowers us to improve our lives, discover our purpose, and achieve the lasting fulfillment we are meant to receive. It has its root in judaism. Is there anyone who practise it here?

I don’t practice it. { The Bible is the sole authority for me}

I am not sure if anyone else that visit here does.

I knew of a person who professed to accept Jesus Christ and then baptized and was in 'fellowship' at a local gathering, from the Hindu background; then dabbled with Islam and then practiced Kabbalah and the latest I heard that he is with Matha Amruthamayi.

Critic, Your statement reads 'Kabbalah is an ancient wisdom that empowers us to improve our lives, discover our purpose, and achieve the lasting fulfillment we are meant to receive'. Seemingly you support Kabbalah, am I right?

If Kabala is another art of living, what is the prior one that probably you may be practising now? For me, Christian living is not just an art of living but a system of living that brings in a heavenly Joy and peace. If I look for another art of living, it means that I lost my interest in Christian living. Two kinds of living cannot go together. Please clarify.

Critic, you are believing theoretically that Kabbalah is good for living but have not yet started living it practically and only TRYING to practise. Can you tell me what that goodness is you found in Kabbalah which is not in Christianity?

I hv been looking for a verse which advises to send my kids to school for worldly wisdom. I couldnt find one. Kablaah is ancient wisdom for good living. Without practising 1 Tim 6:8,9 if you say i practise christianity, it is hypocricy

Critic, there are two things worrying me, one is: you say that Scripture has no verse speaking about sending children to school for learning worldly wisdom and thus you mean that Scripture cannot be infallible and the second one is, your comment citing 1Tim 6:8,9 implies that what is said in this verse is impractical and I think you may have a list of such verses 'irrelevant' for social living. Sending children to school is for learning. The place school is not a matter here, but it is the learning that matters. The system of learning was not invented by Kabbalah founders. Man started learning out of necessity right from the time of origin of human race. Kabbalah is not so ancient as you say. It is an outfit of Oral Judaism possibly must have emerged at the end period of Old Testament. We never read about Pharisees in OT but only in NT. Kabbalah has its root only in oral Judaism and in the teachings of these Pharisees. Kabbalah has its own negative side that I am not interested to write about now. Long before Kabbalah's arrival, there was a schooling system in India called Gurukul. There was even an university called Nalanda in the historical period. And also there were schooling systems in ancient China, Greece and Egypt. People around the world send children to school not because Kabbalah says but as they know its necessity through the ages. When humans started living in social groups, it has become necessary for knowledgeable persons to pass on their knowledge to fellow beings who lack the knowledge, this is the basis for schooling. Men themselves are aware of the importance of knowledge gaining, that is why Jesus said "Whenever you see a cloud rising out of west, immediately you say 'A shower is coming:and so it is. And when you see the south wind blow, you say, 'There will be hot weather and there is. Hypocrites! you can discern the face of the sky and of the earth..." Humans are well prepared to gain worldly wisdom. It is not necessary for the Scripture to say literally that one has to send his son to school. God wonders that people are capable of gaining worldly wisdom (schooling is it's primary step) but are hypocritotally incapable to discern spiritual things (Luke 12:56). Clarify your statement citing 1 Tom 6:8, 9.

You are into too much theology and philosophy talking about infallibility, nalanda, egypt, greece etc. I am not interested. You said chiristian living is all sufficient but still dependant on worldly wisdom and systems. I am looking into the good thingd of kablaah wisdom.(period)

Worldly wisdom is very much necessary for Christians, that is why the Lord said "Therefore be wise as serpents...(Matt 10:16). Apostle Paul says " Brethren, do not be children in understanding...in understanding be mature (1 Cori 14:20)" and then says "I want you to be wise in what is good" (Romans 16:19).

Kabbalah is a Jewish mystic practice. The OT is clear about sorceries and mysticism. They will not prevail, and they should not be allowed because they come from the evil one.

We have one great man who practices all these things and more, he comes under the alias of john@john or Rick or some other ‘mystic’ names. He will pop up soon and ramble on and on. Sometimes he spews saliva when he types on his keyboard and melts it. He will come soon when the moon goes blue or when the stars align or maybe when it is time to proclaim that he is a proud American citizen.

Be wary of him.

Hebrew Alphas and some of its explanation as i found in Kablah. 1. ALEPH As first alphabet, Aleph became symbol for number one, e.g first paragraph number of Psalm 119. With the dieresis(") it represents number 1000. It is also the symbol for famous greek bible manuscript the Codex Sinaiticus. Aleph derived its pictogram (shape) from an ox. The letter itself sometime cannotes first, oneness, unity, uniqueness, or strength. So it appears in such words as God, Lord, Adam, One. Though rarely heard now in spoken hebrew, aleph once indicated a glottal stop. Aleph is the old word for ox, and the aleph in paleo- Hebrew was a pictogram for oxhead with horns. If you rotate the ancient pictogram of aleph you will get greel Alpha and Roman letter A.
