And yet so much of the Jewish disunity in neviim was due to the tribes...

comment Missionary gave me these Talmudic quotes; Does it prove that Goyim are viewed as Animals who should be harassed, and that christians will go to hell?
One possible issue with this question that I think is keeping it from getting an answer is that it's hard to address all the cases above together, as they each have an individual explanation.

Think about it, we treat our family different than we treat random people on the street.

At least the quote about returning lost objects is a legal point, not a moral point per se. I have heard it explained that there are certain law that are in place because we must treat everyone as humans. There are certain ones, such as returning lost objects, that are not morally required because of treating people as humans but because we have a higher level obligation to our family. Jews are our family but Christians aren't. So it isn't that we exclude Christians from returning lost objects, rather there is just not reason to add them in the first place.

comment What's the common method for taking turns reading during a chavrusa learning session?
@msh210 very good point. All true, and end up being judged on a case by case basis. The basic reality is it simply depends on the Chevrutas preference.

@DoubleAA no actually, I'd be happy to see sources relating to that too....as long as it discusses relevance of milchemet mitzvah to fights in Israel today.

comment Can someone explain the idea that God “created the world with the Torah”?
Agreed, this is a good statement, but just seems to reinforce the premise @GottschalkIsrael asked the question with, not answer his/her philosophical concerns

comment Why is Sefer Tehillim called Tehillim and not Tehillos?
@NoachmiFrankfurt it's not a word in Tanach, it's just about grammar relating to our name for a book of Tanach.
