Do Noahides Belong to a Cult?

Before there even was a religion known as Christianity, or Hinduism, or Islam, generations before the prophet Abraham took his first breath as a baby, men and women were studying and living by the laws of the Rainbow Covenant - the Seven Noahide laws. In fact, the Rainbow Covenant laws are mankind's universal laws. They apply eternally, from the time of the first human beings to the very end of time. They apply everywhere, from Finland to Fiji, and in every other place - in this and every universe - that people will ever visit.

Some people associate these universal laws with Judaism. In fact, the Hebrew Bible first introduces the Rainbow Covenant in chapter nine of Genesis, the first of the Five Books of Moses, or Written Torah. Describing the nature of His Revelation to humanity's legendary common ancestor, Noah, God uses the word covenant - in Hebrew, b'rit, or b'ris - precisely seven times.

Does that make you a member of a cult? "Cult" suggests the idea of a faddish and eccentric religious movement, something man-made. But there's nothing faddish, eccentric or artificial about all this wonderful treasury of ancient wisdom. The Seven Noahide laws are the most basic laws of all true morality. Everyone is obligated to keep them.

Rainbow Covenant religion is the basic, fundamental, original religion of all mankind.

Teach me, O Lord, the way of Your Statues; and I will keep it at every step.
Give me understanding, and I shall keep Your Law, and observe it with my whole heart.
Make me to tread in the path of Your Commandments; for therein do I delight.
--Psalm 119:33-35
