I don't really care what someone else chooses to do (as in I am not looking to debate about this man
) but if is this the same guy I read about in the NYT, I really don't get it.
Unless he meant *just* the Jewish Bible/Old Testament/Torah. Because to a lot (if not most) Americans today, the "Bible" means the black book in church on Sundays, and that has nothing to do with what he is talking about.
If he were following *that* Bible, he would be out giving his stuff away and doing everything in love, and realize we are not under the law, etc.
I think in a way, even though the guy seems very nice, he is almost trying to make fun of religion. Just MHO, but the picture I saw with the article (a guy standing in the modern city with long hair and old clothes looking like Moses, and posed all dramatic) made it look like he was trying to show how silly and out of place those rules are in today's reality.
