Torah Reading (Parashah - portion) for this weekend is Sh'mini. This reading today deals with the strange and profane offerings of Nadab and Abihu (Leviticus 10:1-11). We also talk about the death of Uzzah as David and Israel tried to bring back the ark of the covenant to Jerusalem (2 Samuel 6:1-11). We finish off with a reading from 2 Corinthians 6:14-18. This reading deals with the constant tendency of mankind (individuals and congregations alike) to combine Biblical and Pagan (demonic) practices and call it good. Just as bad is the tendency to relax standards and think it is OK with God. Yet, in fact, it is actually profane and strange in the eyes of the Lord. An abomination. This Torah reading and commentary was done by Elder Allan Nemer during our Saturday Shabbat Service on April 10, 2021.
