The Idols We Keep: A Torah Beginners Guide

by | Oct 15, 2023

When we think of idols what usually comes to mind is the golden calf, asherah poles on the hills rising out of the mist, and the fiery furnaces of Moloch.

But, if we are really honest with ourselves, we can find little idols hiding in our lives, obscure and anything but obvious. And I don’t mean the little Buddha statue your great aunt has on a shelf amongst all her other knick-knacks – although that is one too.

What I’m talking about is anything that we rely on, care for or love more than YAHUAH, our Creator and heavenly Father.

Is YAHUAH your top priority or do other things come first in your life?

I know I’m often guilty of this. I find myself scrolling on Pinterest instead of reading my Bible, complaining to a friend instead of praying. Forgetting to tell Him how grateful I am for everything He has given me.

Do you make sure to “pray ceaselessly”, and study your Bible daily? Do you spend hours in front of the TV or lost in video games? Do you rely on your money or your job rather than relying on Him for provision? Are your family more important to you than your – and their – Creator?

Do we put our own wants above the needs of others or the commands of the Most High?

Can we give everything and anything in our lives up and follow Him?

Modern life has given us so many opportunities to become idolaters, and if we’re not very careful we will most assuredly fall into this trap!

Let’s take a look at what the Word can tell us about idols, and what YAHUAH thinks of them.

Miss Rivqah is born!

AND no, she wasn’t born standing up. That would be totally amazing if true. Rivqah is nearly 4 months old now, her birthdate being on July 7, and as you can see, she loves standing with assistance. Sarah and I are in our 40’s, have been married for over 20 years, and never thought we could have any more children. Rivqah decided to surprise us when we least expected it, and here she is, tada! all smiles. Yahuah is truly amazing. Expect plenty more of her in upcoming announcements. I may throw her in when you least suspect it. You can read her birth story here.

Miss Rivqah.

Rebecca L. Gould: A growing family at TUC!

IN my last newsletter I made mention of Rebecca L. Gould without ever giving a photo reveal. Well, here she is. The lovely Rebecca. Rebecca came to TUC during the summer of 2021 after following the breadcrumb trail from Rob Skiba and Nephelim research and soon thereafter began following the Torah. She has been an enormous help to the TUC ministry ever since that time, editing books for publication as well as running the podcast and administrating the TUC community, among other  tasks. ‘The Earth Not a Globe Review: Volume I’ and ‘The Legends of the Jews: Volumes I-IV’ would not have happened without her. 

New Article Archives

A GREAT deal many of my readers have been asking for a single page where my articles can be accessed and I don’t blame them. The sheer volume has become dizzying. Just know that the list provided here is far from complete, though I do say it’s a good start. It’s not that I’m holding anything back. I have been attempting to convert my catalogue of work into pdf files over the last so many months and that is no small easy task. The greater bulk is published all throughout my website. You’ll have to fish for them until I get around to it.
