Good evening. I hope you are doing well today. In more recent days, I’ve had this thought in the back of my mind about following the seven noahide laws for myself. But I’ve managed to find some questions that I probably should be asking first. Here they are:
1.) Are there just only the seven laws of Noah? I remember hearing something about more, but I think those seven were just it. Am I right? (I shouldn’t have to quote them here, should I?)
2.) (This is to former atheists and/or anyone who did not believe in the biblical god) How did you come to believe in God?
3.) What is one supposed to do when they break any of the laws? I take it they are to repent from their mistake?
4.) How do you deal with any bad or bizarre remarks to the noahide faith? I swear I cannot do any research without someone on the internet saying something like “The noahide laws will lead to Christians being decapitated!” or “The Talmud is evil!!!” or whatever else. I honestly think this is straight up nonsense, but I would like to know what you would do then.
5.) What about this passage saying something about there being one law for both the resident and the stranger? Does this somehow conflict with the use of the oral torah or not?
6.) Can a noahide practice any other customs they want as well? (Provided they don’t violate the seven laws, of course.)
I think that will do it for now. If I find any more, I’ll be sure to ask about them. Thank you. And have a nice day.
