Fake Jews and the Enochian calendar


Dinorah

Recommended Posts

Jocelyn from A Pondering Heart has a post about Sukkot, which I found odd since last time I checked it's not for a while and Rosh Hashanah has barely gone by, but I'm used to fake Jews, and the Dixons in particular, butchering the religion they claim to practice.

However, someone did point this out to her in the comments and she answered that they're following the "Scriptural Enochian Calendar". She also put up a new post rehashing the old argument that Christianity is really the same thing as Judaism, so as usual she's implying that both Jews and Christians have been doing it wrong for thousands of years.

 

Anyway, has anyone heard of the Enochian calendar and why might fundies like it? From google, it seems like something a little dodgy.

OT but did she photoshop a headcovering onto her profile pic? I could have sworn that wasn't there before.

And I've never heard of that calendar but of COURSE Jewish people have been celebrating Jewish holidays wrong for thousands of years and this one family finally got it right. Thank Yah!

Here's info about the Enoch calendar. Makes a good substitute for sleeping pills.

finleeportA Fake Jew is a fundy Christian who starts keeping Jewish laws or, more to the point, what they think of as Jewish laws. They do this without converting to Judaism, and often with wildly inaccurate interpretation and form. It often seems like an attempt to make themselves seem more interesting than just plain ol' Christians.

So they get their ideas from some random book that is only taken as Biblical by people living on the Horn of Africa bordering the Red Sea. That makes sense. No offense to the Eritreans and Ethiopians. I'm just not sure how the Dixons get their ideas.

So the Book of Enoch is not canonical for Jews, but it is for the Ethiopian Orthodox Christians. Why it should be more "scriptural" for Jewish practices is baffling. Sometimes it looks llike they're trying to be bizarre on purpose.

That's really interesting. I didn't even connect it to the Ethiopian Orthodox church, but I should have.

It is true that Ethiopian Orthodoxy goes waaaaaay back and prior to that was heavily influenced by Judaism, but I can't see how that could possibly be more Biblical or more "original" than traditional Jewish calendars. ???

Well, apparently it is Canonical for Ethiopian Jews, too. Still, why random Horn of Africa practices should be more "scriptural" for Jewish practices makes no sense.

This is the core of all their actions! Religion is excellent for this, because when ppl start to criticize you for being odd, weird, and whacky, you can cry persecution/religious freedom/whatever. It's a win-win situation for anyone who wants speshul attention!

      It’s not supposed to be mosquito season right now but I still appear to have been bitten twice on the side of my foot. Bastards. I know I shouldn’t scratch but it’s so tempting… 😑

      Therapy Outside the Box

      Hello,
       
      I'm brand new to this forum. It was suggested to me by former and outspoken Remnant Fellowship member (Natasha Pavlovich) that I join this forum and put out here what I do. She also warned me that no one on here trusts, or trusts easily, and that I'd likely be assumed to be a Remnant plant or spy until vetted and verified as not that. Fair enough. 
      In short, and in truth, I'm a psychotherapist with 25 yrs experience in Franklin TN (less than three miles from RF incidentally) with a special interest in working with people formerly associated with cults, cult-like or any and all high control intitutions. I'm especially interested in working with those desiring not only deconstruct, recover and learn to thrive post-indoctrination, but those desiring to recapture or cultivate an authentic sense of theology without walls, or spirituality with borders. 
      To date, I've worked with former Amish, Mennonite, LDS/FLDS, FOG, and a those representing a whole slew of evangelical, fire and brimstone fear/shame/guilt-inducing institutions.
      I am especially interested in working with former Remnant Fellowship and Scientology members. I view RF as basically Scientology without the budget. 
      I'll leave it there. Much more can be gleaned about me through my website: therapyoutsidethebox.com or IG: @ therapyoutsidethebox
       
      Peace,
       
      Chris Hancock, LCSW

      I'm a huge baseball fan. This year, MLB TV showed Liga Dominicana games in December and January and it was a fucking revelation. The players had so much fire and joy. The announcers with their charming DR accents were a blast, though I could hardly keep up with the Spanish. DItto the Serie del Caribe. As a White Sox fan, the MLB season is going to suffer by comparison. Te amo los Tigres del Licey!
