There was a great man of the Jewish faith, a non-Jewish man approach him and asked him to tell him everything the Jewish Torah said while standing on one foot.
The reply of the Jewish man was one as such, “What is harmful to you, do not do to your fellow. The rest is commentary go and learn.” Rabbi Hillel
No matter of religious beliefs this is sound advise. There are many who want to covert a person to the way the believe. Believing that their way is the right way. Because of their belief system they do not see the humanity around them, they are to busy trying to save the world.
I for one believes the world needs saving and believes in the Hebrew Scriptures, but in them is a powerful verse that is overlooked by many.
“Behold, all souls are Mine;…”
All souls belong to the Creator. He has placed His ownership over you, there are no stealing of souls going on.
What Is Our Job?
Our job is to obey the Creator in all of His commands to us, as Gentile/non-Jewish believers of the One God of Abraham, this starts by studying the book of Genesis. Then, second, we need to be aware of the humanity around us. What ever we are doing, whether we are obeying the Creator or being a neighbor it our responsibility to be aware of the humanity that is around us.
What is harmful to you, do not do to your fellow.

Gentiles do not have a commandment to study the book of Genesis. We certainly do not have a command to learn Ezekiel. Ezekiel has no great theological importance in Torah Law. The Five Books of Moses contain all of the Divine precepts.
As stated in another blog comment you are right according to the Divine Code, not everyone accepts it authority.
It’s my blog, with my opinions based on my personal studies. Not everything I write is based on what is in the Divine Code nor is every Seven Commandments keeper is on the same page with what is written in that book.
