comment In adultery, why is a wife is guilty, and a husband not?
Does it matter if Judah's wife is death or not? Men's marriage status doesn't seem to prevent him from mating with anyone else. The women's marital status seem to be the issue. Whether a man is married or not seems to be irrelevant. He can boing boing any woman as long as she is not someone else' wife. In fact, some conservative rabbi consider David action with Betsheba is not a sin because Batsheba is not technically married at that time.

comment Is Buddhism Avodah Zarah?
Gautama and most buddhists believe that Gautama himself is above all, including any supreme being or beings. I think I wrote enough to be answer. You can check this. I am neither jewish or Buddhist.

comment Is Buddhism Avodah Zarah?
So according to Gautama, even bakka brahma, the most powerful being in the universe, is pretty delusional because he think that he creates everything and nothing is above him. It's like gnostic christians (declared heretical by catholic too). Have you ever think that may be Hashem is delusional too and need enlightenment? Well, that seems to be what gautama think. Nothing live forever and everything is impermanent and illusionary (maya)

Not a buddhist. Though an interested readers of buddhism. Buddhist do not believe in a creator God. Gautama believe in a being called bakka brahma that "think" he creates everything but doesn't. The realms we're in have been around from eternity to eternity and has no beginning in buddhism. Not sure how they reconcile that with big bang followed by age of photons.

The gnostic believe that Jesus is an even higher ranking God than demiurge, which they identify as Hashem. So there are wide variety of beliefs.

@Emetv'Shalom, you can check sabellianism here en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sabellianism . As for me, I don't even know if Hashem is real or not. Sometimes, I wonder if we are truly judged by our beliefs. Then Hashem may say that the correct doctrine is quintinity or hexinity or quaternity and tada, no body goes to heaven.

I already self censored my word. Actually I should replace that with something else. What? Judah is very married when he boing boing Tamar I guess. No body even care. Tamar could be punished because she's supposed to produce heir for Judah, which was exactly what she's doing. However, that's the only issue. No body calls Judah immoral or sinning or anything.

I would guess so too. Seems like Hashem is a reasonable god that knows that not all commandments are capital offense. Some are misdemeanors. Just making sure though.

James is a jew. I wonder where does he get the idea that breaking one commandment is breaking all of it?

A man can have more than one wife. What about a man, having a wife, f*k around with other girls or having multiple one night stands? That doesn't seem to be punished at all by Torah

What about married man having mistresses? That doesn't seem to be prohibited too. Even concubines are okay

comment Difference in law between male and female adultery
In ancient time, before paternity tests, adultery is not victimless. Adultery means a man may have to inherit his wealth to someone else' biological child. A woman never have such problems. Now some would come up with certain theology to justify this. The thing is, judaism laws of adultery does not differ much from adultery in most other cultures. Hence, some common sense humans' politic should be the reason instead of any religious cause.

If that is the case for marriage, then why get married at all?

comment What does adultery mean in the 7th commandment?
So either deuteronomy or post biblical nature. I thought all mitzvah are in the torah (according to some answers here). So we should cross out post biblical/post torah part right?
