Letter to a thinking atheist

Elhanan writes, "Some very keen minds have been swift to solve that problem and, to avoid the idea of a Beginner, came up with the brilliant theory of multiple universes, from which this one exploded into being."

The restoration

Elhanan writes, "As with the restoration of Michelangelo’s masterpiece, some critics speak vehemently against this revealing sign, while others see it as the very finger of God in our days."

David – the comforter

Elhanan writes, "David is an example and an encouragement for us all who stumble at times in our human weaknesses and passions."

As the days of Noah

Elhanan writes, "As Judeo-Christianity cools to a dying ember in the western world, extinguished by both corruptions in the churches and the ongoing efforts of the radical Left to erase the Biblical worldview from its populations, that vacuum created will quickly be filled with its antithesis."

Ideas – Good and evil

Elhanan writes, "For lack of a better word, and to avoid cliches and the pitfalls of misunderstanding, I will use the word Ideas to describe that which lays behind the concept of Good and Evil."

Strength and weakness

Elhanan writes, "There are times when we stumble badly at temptation and blow it. We get into an angry outburst when we know we should return good for evil and turn the other cheek..."

The fall of man

Elhanan writes, "The greatest historical downfalls of humanity came about through certain women taking the lead and their husbands heeding after them, be it Eve and her husband listening to her unto tragedy for all, or Abraham heeding his wife Sarah and bringing forth Ishmael..."

Borders

Elhanan writes, "Borders and boundaries and laws are a vital necessity for the benefit of both healthy individuals and nations, and Heaven itself, as our Creator is a divider, separating light from dark, holy from profane, good from evil, and time from eternity."

Of Arabs, Jews and gallbladders in Israel

Elhanan writes, "A fog of confusion and electronic misinformation has covered the Earth, and today one must wield a very sharp sword to cut through that blinding fog to get to the Truth."

Old Jew/New Jew

Elhanan writes, "And the New and Old evolve together, awaiting revelation of the veiled Face, and salvation of the New-Old Jew awaiting them both in the New-Old Jerusalem, like Joseph their older brother."
