Trying To Live Godly In An Ungodly World – As Ultra Orthodox Jew

with 5 comments

I recently received several comments on my blog from a careful and God-fearing Ultra Orthodox Jew. I was immediately moved with great respect for someone trying to please the Lord in a careless generation. I have many precious friends and acquaintances that strive to live as careful as this dear man. I only wish more did.

As a Charedi ( Ultra Orthodox) Jew I really enjoy reading your blog. Our parents and grandparents fought hard against TV and VCR and worldly customs of dress. It takes men with a burden and a love for the next generation to fight these things. We have taken a pretty strict stand on Internet I will present it here maybe some of you could benefit from it or add to it.

1. Parents with children attending our schools must sign a paper stating they have no Internet in the home.

2. In the office it must have an approved filter and it must be in public view.

3. Cell phone have no Internet or picture or video capacity.

I would enjoy your feedback on these topics.

Thank you for taking the time to read my blog and comment. I am thrilled to find others who unashamedly stand against the worldliness and sinfulness of our day. I appreciate your post very much.

Thank you for sharing these student requirements. I know longer pastor, but my pastor friends have conservative schools with similar requirements for their students and members. I think this is excellent.

Thank you for having a conscience that strives to be holy in an unholy world.

“I have never seen The Righteous forsaken nor His Seed begging for bread”. WE need to cry out against worldliness. Weep with me for the sin of the nation in which we reside. My heart breaks for the people. We are in the same situation as the Prophet Noah. We must stand against the evil of this time…. my heart bleeds.

  2. I know alot of Oneness Pentecostals who would scoff, mock and roll their eyes at someone like this man! As for me, I strongly respect him and the stand he takes! I will pray that the Lord will lead him into the truth!

  3. I deeply appreciate your blog. I found this exchange to be most encouraging that there are others with strong principled positions that have the same foundations that we have. Thank you for sharing and God bless you and your work.

  4. I weep with you both. Bro Huntley spoke along the lines of this topic last night and my heart was fearful for our nation. We’ve shut him out and this world has called righteous living evil ..
    We need GOD!!!
