There are a multitudes of different esoteric beliefs from ancient times and from all corners and cultures of the planet, but "Kabbalah" as it is universally known (outside Rob-world) is not "something that has always existed." Rob can argue until he's black and blue in the face and co-opt that terminology to include any and all occultism/esoteric knowledge from the ancient Mid-East and include biblical fairy tales, many of which were plagiarized from more ancient Mesopotamian myths, but it doesn't change what is factually correct. Playing the usual semantic games such as and being petulant isn't a strong way to argue your a for creating ones own interpretation of jewish mysticism in forum discussions. LOLZ!! The tree of life is a diagram used in various mystical traditions. It usually consists of 10 nodes symbolizing different archetypes and 22 lines connecting the nodes. The nodes are often arranged into three columns to represent that they belong to a common category. It is usually referred to as the Kabbalistic tree of life in order to distinguish it from other concepts with the same name. In the Jewish Kabbalah, the nodes are called sephiroth. The diagram is also used by Christian Cabbala, Hermetic Qabalah and Theosophy. The diagram is believed to be derivable from the flower of life. Scholars believe that the concept of a tree of life with different spheres encompassing aspects of reality traces its origins back to Assyria in the 9th century BC. The Assyrians also assigned values and specific numbers to their deities similar to those used by the later Jewish Kabbalah. The beginnings of the Jewish Kabbalah are traced back by scholars to the Medieval Age, originating in the Book of Bahir and the Book of Zohar. I clearly never said the Tree of Life was "evil" lol I never mentioned anything to do with the trees lol talk about "false accusations" Again, just because ROB decides what is the Kabbalah, despite all the historiographical evidences and sources also doesn't make it so. So no, I most certainly will not just "read the Bible" instead of sourcing my information from multiple pieces of documentation and authors because I don't hold "the Bible" to be a complete and final collection, let alone trustworthy, "interpretation" of so-called "truths" or way-of-being/all divine knowledge etc. Not need to get uppity, dear, I very purposely said "I'm not that well versed" I'm refering to what I believed, again, stating I'm not that well versed, that Christianity was a "new start" with the NT and that Christians, thus, believed the "OT was fairy-tales to be used as allegories" - what I said was nothing to do with what Christ may or may not have "preached from" now whose "misinterpreting what people say"?! Anyways. I'm out because Rob can't have civil conversations/discussions without being rude and petulant when someone says something counter to what ROB believes is The Truth, The Whole Truth, and Nothing But The Truth - so Help Us God. The Tree of Life is the Kabbalah and Jesus Christ said that those with "an ear to hear" may eat its fruit, so it's not as black and white as you make out and it must be something to do with how the subject is approached. I've already said that the wrong approach is to take the teaching found in the Kabbalah and take them as truth, like the occultists do because those so-called "truths" will be inversions of the truth and white will become black, up will become down, and evil will become good. I'm not promoting that, but when you dismiss the whole thing as evil, you are dismissing what Jesus Christ said about the fruit of the Tree of Life, so you're missing something.
