The Essenes were a Jewish sect, weren't they? Anyway, when are you going to quit the b.s.?

NO! The Essenes were absolutely not a Jewish sect. The Jews were from the tribe of Judah that went astray while held captive in Babylon. Their priestly scribes invented the False Law of Moses that requires animal sacrifices. The ancient Essenes had a completely different Law from Moses which was very simple, and was re-established by Yashua. The Essenes are absolutely not Jewish in any way whatsoever. Abraham, Moses, and Yashua were not Jews. Judaism was the religion of a tribe that become one of the two kingdoms in the land. Don't be duped.

That'd be a big surprise to all the Jewish people I've ever met.

Kid, knock it off, we know you're pulling our collective leg.

What a bunch of stupid, arrogant, and useless hippie crap. So the entire world went into apostasy except for your reconstituted (read: made up) sect, which lives on via internet websites based in Oregon? What are the odds! ::)

And why does Mary Magdalene look like La Toya Jackson?


The entire world IS in apostasy because they are not spiritual. Very few people are spiritual these days. This should be obvious. If you do not see that the world is in apostasy then you are spiritually blind. But people can be saved from any religion if they have a relationship with God, are faithful in their daily prayers, and do good deeds. Unfortunately, most religionists do nothing for their spirituality.

And i have no idea what that picture is.

You trust Jews? Did Abraham or Moses ever hear of the word Jew or Judaism??? No, absolutely not. Its made up by the Jews themselves. Do your research.

Do you have any peer-reviewed scholarship to back this up, or do you believe that scholars and historians are corrupt?

All you have to do is to research and think about it. The terms Jew and Judaism were invented by the Jews themselves. Abraham and Moses have never heard of the nonsense. They were not Jews.

http://www.essene.org/Essene_Doctrine.htm#D11

This link seems to correlate somewhat with what our friend has been pushing.

Quote
We believe that the false apostle Paul, who certainly never met Yahshua and most likely never met Miriam, led an attack against early Essene Christianity, then founded a watered-down form of Christianity best termed "Paulianity". Paul threw out many of Yahshua and Miriam’s central teachings including vegetarianism, the feminine aspect of God, women's rights and the prohibition against slavery.

We believe that Paulianity evolved into the Roman Catholic Church and gave birth to all of mainstream Christianity. Thus, mainstream Christianity today, which uses a Pauline New Testament that includes more words of Paul than words of Yahshua, is as much based on the teachings of Paul as of Yahshua. We believe that the teachings of Paul are very different than the teachings of Yahshua and Miriam, and thus Paulianity is a deficient form of Christianity.



Founded by this guy.

Dig around on the site, if you like. It's kinda weird.

At least they have a really legit looking website.
Even if we have thousands of acts of great virtue to our credit, our confidence in being heard must be based on God's mercy and His love for men. Even if we stand at the very summit of virtue, it is by mercy that we shall be saved.

amartin, I might be wrong but I don't remember that Jesus/Yashua ever referred to himself as an essene. And by the way, the essenes must have come up with the name 'essenes' at some point. If the essenes were allowed to come up with a name for themselves, why not the jews?

I am an Essene. Its not a separate religion. Essenes are people who are set apart from the apostasy of the rest of the world and the heretical sects of Judaism, Christianity, Islam, etc. We follow the simple religion revealed to the patriarchs.

Do you live a communal life?  One of the most striking examples of Essene piety, indeed the thing that made them "Essenes", was their strict communal life.  I would love to hear about your experiences in communal living.

The Essenes and early followers of Yashua believed in communalism. I have lived in communes. But they are generally not spiritual enough.

I would really like to read more about your experiences living a communal life.  What made them not spiritual enough for you?  Were you the only one dissatisfied with the experience?

I was literally the only one there who prayed and meditated daily. When i went off in the early mornings to the woods then they would come get me because it wasn't "community oriented" enough. They were supposedly Christian communities.

Other than Orthodox Christians, the rest of the so-called Christian world does not do anything for their spirituality. It is really pathetic.

Did they offer a communal alternative to private prayer and meditation in the woods?

No, like i said, they did absolutely NOTHING for their spirituality on a daily basis. This was true at all the "radically Christian" and "on fire for God" communities that i lived at. They are a complete joke. Hopefully, they will not be burned with an unrelenting flame.
