10 statements? There are far more than 10 statements there.

comment Why are there 40 commandments in 10 commandments?
10 items. Does that refer to the 10 (actually 40 commandments) or other 10 items or 10 other things?

comment Christian believe in the Noahide Laws, will they end up in heaven?
How come believing that God can take humans' form or any form he wish is idolatry? I mean even Sun Wu Kong en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sun_Wukong can do that and Hashem can't? Not that I still think Jesus is God. But I don't think it's impossible for God to take a form of human, though unlikely.

comment Forgiveness: differences between christian and jewish traditions
There's possibly some deeper meaning on that commandment. For example, do you really have anyone coming to you hundreds of time sincerely asking for forgiveness? The only case I know is my self, keep saying sorry to God, and my self. Or perhaps it's somebody that you are really close with like parents or literal brothers. Would you hate your brother if he lost your pencils one more time? Many Jesus' teaching can be good self help strategy if interpreted correctly, irrelevant of your religious help.

comment How do you write Isaiah in Hebrew?
I don't allow my daughter's ears to be pierced because I believe in individual choice. She's just 1 week old. She should decide that 18 years latter. It has nothing to do with judaism because I am not a jew.

comment How do you write Isaiah in Hebrew?
Hashem told us to vote and pay taxes? Didn't know He's a liberal. I thought he's closer to libertarians. Voting means you indirectly told others how to run their lives. Taxes means punishing the productive so the lazy can breed and breed and breed and sleep and sloth and bang girls unlimitedly while encouraging robbery, larcenies, etc.

comment Were Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego told that there would be no miracle?
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shadrach,_Meshach,_and_Abednego Looks like Sadrach, Meshach, and Abednego is the more popular name and the bible actually uses that name. The wikipedia entry uses sadrach, meshach, and abednego instead of hananiah, misael, and azaria

I see. Abraham uses elohim followed by plural verb when addressing abimelech. The most natural translation should be "the gods lead me here". As usual, that phrase is unnaturally translated. That would be another question.

The story of Haran being burned is not in the torah. I am not even sure if Abraham is monotheistic. Gen 20:13 en.wikipedia.org/wiki/…

So God won't tell lie, but may deceive by silent.

Actually this is what I really want to know. So don't expect a miracle. It's God's will. I didn't know that Haran is burned?

comment What sin did Jesus do?
I agree. Forgiving your enemies is stupid. It does have some deeper meaning. Something Law of attraction practitioners do.

Command 24 is interesting. So, how things went in Egypt? Did you remember it? Got pics, memento, etc.?

comment Why are there 40 commandments in 10 commandments?
Some christian denomination count the first as a whole commandment. The second one is there should be no other God. Some combine 1st and 2nd into 1 commandment. I wonder where number 10 comes from. Everyone says it's 10 commandment. Rabam, as you said, think there are 13 of them.
