Response to the open heart part 2

 

Three more posts from Y/Z...
Redefining everything...
-- With absolutely no Concept of or Concern FOR... Reality.

Historical Context...?
-- Non-Existent.

Etymology...?
-- Brutally Bastardized.

Traditional Interpretation...?
-- Not even so much as a NOD.

Nothing is Real.
Everything is Symbolic.
-- Including Jesus Christ himself.

But...
Let's look at One Specific Example...
-- Y/Z says "JEW" means "an Open Heart".

But...
The Online Etymology Dictionary says...
Jew (n.) --
late 12c. (in plural, giwis), from Anglo-Fr. iuw, from O.Fr. giu, from L. Judaeum (nom. Judaeus), from Gk. Ioudaios, from Aramaic jehudhai (Heb. y'hudi) "Jew," from Y'hudah "Judah," lit. "celebrated," name of Jacob's fourth son and of the tribe descended from him. Replaced O.E. Iudeas "the Jews." Originally, "Hebrew of the kingdom of Judah." Jews' harp "simple mouth harp" is from 1580s, earlier Jews' trump (1540s); the connection with Jewishness is obscure. Jew-baiting first recorded 1853, in reference to Ger. Judenhetze. In uneducated times, inexplicable ancient artifacts were credited to Jews, based on the biblical chronology of history: e.g. Jews' money (1570s) "Roman coins found in England." In Greece, after Christianity had erased the memory of classical glory, ruins of pagan temples were called "Jews' castles."

jew (v.) --
"to cheat, to drive a hard bargain," 1824, from Jew (n.) (cf. gyp, welsh, etc.). The campaign to eliminate it in early 20c. was so successful that people began to avoid the noun and adj., too, and started using Hebrew instead.
Now I'll say 'a Jew' and just the word Jew sounds like a dirty word and people don't know whether to laugh or not. [Lenny Bruce (19251966)]
And, Strong's Concordance defines "Jew" as being...
-- Strong's: Greek 2453 -- Jewish, belonging to the Jewish nation Jewish as respects to birth, origin, religion.

Nothing about a "heart"...
-- (Open or Otherwise)...
To be found in either of those sources.

So, how does Y/Z come to her conclusion...
That Those Sources are Wrong...
And Her Definition is... Right...?

Well...
Quite simply...
She claims to have been given Special Insight...
To the "actual" meanings...
By, none-other-than...
-- GOD.

So, naturally...
The Buck Stops Right There.

God told her...
So...
-- SHE must be Right...
And...
Everybody else...
-- Is Wrong.

So...
WHO are We supposed to argue with...?
-- Her Invisible Friend...?

Yeah, like THAT's gonna happen.
