9781480049734: In Defense of Truth

Is truth relevant? In a philosophical and theological approach "In Defense of Truth" challenges the validity of the traditions and practices of the Jewish, Christian and Catholic religions. Is truth relevant to religious belief, or is the basis of salvation best achieved by deception and religious myth? The author uses the Bible as the basis and sole authority for determining the validity of tradition and practice. "In Defense of Truth" begins with a dialogue between a Rabbi and a Priest on the contrasting approaches used to satisfy the spiritual needs of the people, and then continues with a closer look at the practices of each of these three religions, as well as an approach to other theological/philosophical attempts to serve the spiritual needs of the people. Without getting into a detailed analysis of these practices the author is able to assess these problems with enough information and provides direction so that the reader will be enticed to seek further confirmation of his/her belief structure. Is it built on fable and myth, or is it solidly based upon Biblical mandates that direct our path to righteousness? While "In Defense of Truth" presents challenges, it also offers solutions based upon Biblical mandates.

About the Author:

Ray Looker is a disciple of Yahshua the Messiah, an apostle of the Messianic Jewish faith and has been a Professor of Theology. Ray is committed to preparing the Church for the coming of the Messiah. Ray spent 14 years in the U.S. Army as a Senior-Ranking Non-Commissioned Officer. His military assignments took him to Greenland, Germany, Norway and Vietnam. He served in seven major campaigns in Vietnam, and has spent over 30 years as a Missionary and Professor in Europe, China and the inner-cities of America. With graduate degrees in Law Ray worked as a Law Clerk in a Public Defender’s Office and with a District Court Judge while doing post-graduate work for a Doctor of Theology Degree. His post-Doctorate research in Educational and Motivational Psychology in Finland allowed him to be a Program Manager in an epidemiological study of mental illness for the Department of Health and Mental Retardation for the State. He later served as a Director of Compliance enforcing a Federal Court Order on a maximum security prison for the criminally insane, a Justice of the Peace, a Notary Public and as an Auxiliary Police Officer in the State of New York. Ray ran for the House of Delegates and as a Magistrate with the idea that government ‘servants’ were to be held accountable to the people for their actions. In addition Ray has also served as Pastor in a Christian Church, Pastoral Counselor and as Messianic Rabbi in a Messianic Jewish Congregation. He has also ministered on both radio and television and has been a Baritone Soloist in various churches when asked to do so. When the Messiah comes all men will be commanded to observe the Commandments of Yahweh, i.e., the Feasts of Yahweh, His Sabbaths, the New Moons, and the Dietary Laws of the written TORAH. Ray’s work and ministry is to prepare and to teach Believers the importance of keeping Yahweh’s laws and commandments in accordance with His wishes and desires for us. It might be noted that not one so-called Christian Holiday or Sabbath will be observed in the Messianic Era and Kingdom of our Lord when He comes. To raise up the ‘Tabernacle of David’ in preparation for the coming of the Lord, the Church must rebuild and restore Christianity upon the bedrock foundation of the Apostles and Prophets, which is the written TORAH. Ray’s first book on “Judeo-Christianity – The Foundation of Truth” began his journey in the Messiah Jewish faith.
