Laws of Kings, Laws 11:10-12
 “…Can there be a greater stumbling block than this (Christianity)? That all the prophets spoke that the Messiah will redeem Israel and save them, and gather their dispersed and strengthen their Mitzvot, and this (one, i.e., Jesus) caused the Jews to be destroyed by the sword, and scattered their remnants and humbled them, and exchanged the Torah, and caused the majority of the world to err to serve a god other than the Lord.”
 “Nevertheless, the thoughts of the Creator of the world are not within the power of man to reach them, ‘for our ways are not His ways, nor are our thoughts His thoughts.’ And all these matters of Jesus of Nazareth and that of the Ishmaelite who arose after him are only to straighten the way of the king Messiah and to fix the entire world, to serve God as one, as it is stated (Zephaniah 3:9), ‘For then I will turn to the peoples (into) clear speech, to all call in the name of God and serve Him unanimously’.”
 “How (will this come about)? The entire world has already become filled with the mention of the Messiah, with words of Torah and words of mitzvot and these matters have spread to the furthermost isles, to many nations of uncircumcised hearts, and they discuss these matters and the mitzvot of the Torah. Some say: ‘These mitzvoth are true, but were already nullified in the present age and are not applicable for all time.’ Others say: ‘Hidden matters are in them (mitzvot) and they are not to be taken literally, and the messiah has already come and revealed their hidden (meanings).’ And when the true Messiah stands, and he is successful and is raised and exalted, immediately they all will retract and will know that fallacy they inherited from their fathers, and that their prophets and fathers caused them to err.”
Maimonides is quite clear:
“Can there be a greater stumbling block than Christianity?”
“Jesus caused the Jews to be destroyed by the sword…and exchanged the Torah, and caused the majority of the world to err to serve a god other than the Lord.”
“And when the true Messiah stands, and he is successful and is raised and exalted, immediately they all will retract and will know that fallacy they inherited from their fathers.”
Our greatest Rabbi is not interested in interfaith dialogue, and as we said last week, Rabbis Joseph Soloveitchik and Moshe Feinstein zt”l prohibited such dialogue. This does not express animosity towards any other peoples, since as Jews, these Rabbis recognized God’s will that other people exists. These Rabbis fully understood and agreed that God desires every living soul to enjoy truth. But since interfaith dialogue would convey some recognition of a false religion, thereby misleading both Jew and Gentile, this harm must be averted.
As Maimonides teaches, God and the Torah’s concern are for truth, and to be honest about the falsehoods of other religions. We are to educate others on these flaws, not seek their approval. When Jews on the whole can raise themselves above the infantile need for approval; when they study our Fundamentals and become convinced by force of reason of the absolute truth of Judaism, no more apologies will be heard for disagreeing with what is false, with other religions. Conversely, our display of Torah study and our teachings will expose the other nations to truth, for which they will state, “fallacy they inherited from their fathers” and “truly this is a wise and discerning nation.”
If you are Jewish, study our Fundamentals (reprinted in this issue) so you might accurately represent Judaism for yourself, your family and children, and for other peoples. If you are a Gentile, find an orthodox Jew or Rabbi who will stand up for Torah Fundamentals, and teach you the truth, and the flaws with other religions as Maimonides taught.
The Torah is for everyone; as Jews, we are simply its guardians and teachers.
