4. At the Gematriot blog, why there is no better time to start Daf Yomi. Mostly nonsense, going on for pages and pages, but at least it is nonsense with a positive end result.
5. At COLLive, a new book takes on messianics [sic?]. Here it an image:
6. And at Hezbos in your Backyard, posts decrying those Lubavitch who are not overt meshichists.
7. Related to this, I don't know what to make of Tidbits of Torah. In comments there and elsewhere, they are very much in favor of this belief in mashiach from the dead which, in ways, often borders on idolatry. And meanwhile, on their blog, Tidbits of Torah, they describe how they are geirim, and used to be, respectively, an "ordained a pastor in the Methodist Church" and a "Christian minister in the African American community both in Chicago and Los Angeles for 14 years". Is this just switching from one false messianism and idolatry to another?
The reason I point it out is that so many of the discussions on the English Geulah blogs are framed by people with outside influences, be they "Noahides", baalei teshuva, gerim, or Christians.
