In Deuteronomy 18:9, God said, “You shall not learn to do” – the ways of those nations.Our sagespoint out that this statement seems to contain superfluous words because it could have said either, “you shall not learn” or “you shall not do.” In fact, the additional words teach that although it is forbidden to learn false beliefs to do them, it is permissible to learn them to educate our children to avoid false beliefs.*See the commentaries of Rashi, Sifre, and Maskil La David.There is a fundamental question posed by Christian believers that warrants a thoughtful response.This pamphlet is just one example, and it is our newest addition to our Jewish Response to Missionaries series.Our highly acclaimed handbook, with this title, is available for free download in nine languages at Some people are reluctant to explore non-Jewish texts.Tobias Winright, associate professor of Theological Ethics and the Maeder Endowed Associate Professor of Health Care Ethics in the Gnaegi Center for Health Care Ethics at Saint Louis University, told The Christian Post in an email Wednesday that there should be a ban on child sex robots.
As to whether sex with child robots would help to reduce sex crimes, FRR states that there is major disagreement on the issue.He said that he's "not confident" that that's what consumers of such robotic products desire, however.Winright further suggested that in some ways robot sex is "probably analogous to masturbation, which many theologians today no longer consider necessarily sinful." He added, however, that if child sex robots are used "much like child pornography," then that makes it "immoral." "And even sexual gratification with adult sex robots pales in comparison to the real thing." The FRR report takes into account public surveys and opinions of various experts in the field, and finds that there is a market for sex robots, albeit men are twice as likely than women to engage in such a practice.It is not a coincidence that today more Jews have converted than ever before.In Israel alone, more than 20,000 Jews consider themselves to be “Messianic-Jews.” There are a number of factors that have contributed to making this challenge more complex and serious: It would be a mistake to think the risk has been minimized, especially to Jewish students and young adults, just because missionaries are less visible on street corners and offer much appreciated Christian support for Israel.
