I walkes around Crown heights when i was young, about 15 years ago, shmoozing with tens and tens of people, walking into dozens of random sukkahs, and EVERY SINGLE PERSON TOLD ME THIS!!! Stop with your revisionist history.

Even if that's true, and it very well might be,  if you're not educated enough on the topic I think you may be better off listening than ranting. You're trying to convince a bunch of Chabadniks of what they believe when they are sitting here telling you the opposite.


I've met plenty of people who also were over obsessed with the Rebbe and also believed he was Moshiach.  And I still know enough to know that that is not the basis of Chabad. And there are PLENTY who don't think like that at all.

It seems like you're so set on believing what you want to believe so you can hold on to your "disgust" and feelings toward Chabad etc.

I won't deny there are Chabad wackos but why focus on them?

when they are sitting here and spinning the opposite. FTFY. It's not true, it's backtracking, thats all it is.

Messianism among Lubavitch

How egotistical does a sect have to be, to think that only their Rebbe can be Moshiach, and if their Rebbe has no son, then he must be moshiach.

#juststatingtheobvious

It's actually a Gemara (cannot remember where but if soooo imp. PM me and ill find out)

Gemara goes Something like this:
Rabbi x's students believed he was moahiach and rabbi y's students believed he was moahiach.

not because they believed that the 7th rosh yeshiva of their yeshiva had to be moshiach. There's a big difference.

This thread just reminds me why Mashiach isn't here yet.

All the judging, the hate. The lack of feeling connected as one nation.
And most importantly the ignorance every sect has for one another.
:-\



The lack of proper attitude of wanting to learn and understand and respect each other.

Your point??

It's not based on that. It's based on the rebbe of each person being qualified for the position.

The 7th is not connected to this point specifically.

So now please answer the question (that I didn't state explicitly).

You stated that believing your rebbe is moahiach is egotistical. You're being proven wrong by a clear Gemara. Do you retract your statement or not, and why?

Believing that your rebbe is moshiach because he's your rebbe is egotistical, believing your rebbe happens to be moshiach is not egotistical.

I explained that each ones rebbe was qualified. So are you saying that the Lubavitcher Rebbe wasn't qualified or are you saying that were not egotistical?

I feel like when you delve deep down most of this has little to do with Religion and beliefs and more to do with ignorance and the hard time people have accepting anything that is different from what they know or how they were raised or what they were taught.

I walked around Crown heights when i was young, about 15 years ago, shmoozing with tens and tens of people, walking into dozens of random sukkahs, and EVERY SINGLE PERSON TOLD ME THIS!!! Stop with your revisionist history. You couldn't find a chabadske in the NY or Israel that didn't say these things, I've shmoozed with enough lubavitchers to know that it wasn't just a minority.
I've been in chabad yeshivos for 8 years, including both mishichist and anti-meshichist yeshivas.
Not once did I hear this business you're saying that the Rebbe had to be moshiach from any teachers or friends. Not once.
Maybe before Gimmel Tamuz, but not now. Except by the wackos who are a tiny minority.
 
I'm not denying that we'd love to have the Rebbe as moshiach, but that he has to be moshiach?
You are dead wrong.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

  • Location: The value of a forum such as this one is not in that one can post a question and receive an answer, but in that the question has most likely been asked before, and the answer is available to him that will but only use the search function.
  • Programs: 1. Search on google. 2. Search in the right board of DDF with a general word or two. 3. Read the wiki. 4. Read the thread. 5. Ask away.
