The Fluid Mechanics of Theology

SplashDoes anything in the Prophets or the Writings or the Besorah [New Testament] supersede Torah? This is a very important question and it will define your relationship with the Torah as a lifestyle, it will define your relationship with the Jewish people, and it will intrinsically define [or limit] your access to the promises of G-d. If you believe progressive revelation can supersede or annul anything that was revealed previously, then you believe Torah is fluid and subject to change. Once you believe that, nothing in Torah is consistent and solid, and your god, by default, is a liar. You can never be sure of your place in your god’s house. Additionally, you remove yourself from the promises afforded by the G-d of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. You become subject to the oft quoted verse, I will bless those who bless you and demean those who demean you.
