I'm really moved when you write & i'm in your corner.
As for Theologians, they theorize in all Abramic Religions.
Theologians bring out the best of their Deities interpreting
& comforting to their followers. They have an important
spiritual place in any Society, even for Apostates like myself.
Do their followers behave as Theologians do?
Theologians have nothing to do with Religion & they came
after the Prophet & Deities. They are Philosophers & Poets
of such. They fill the spot of the Prophets & Deities, who are
Marc, Judaism does not have a Judaic Deity, they have a Judaic
Religion begun in 70AD & completed in 800AD with their Torah, Talmud & Mitzvah as their mass of theological Liturgy, Dogma & Doctrine. Judaic Theologists must come to terms with the biblical figures El as in Israel & Yahweh to & for World Jewry. Judaic Theology has never satisfactually clear up this descrepency.
Rabbinical culture & tradition was begun by the progressive Pharisees for its followers to take part in daily debate of Theology in 150BC passing it all on to the Rabbis first in 200AD.
A helpful theological perspective is doomed today, due to the strict demands of the Talmud & Mitzvah yoked onto Judaic followers only allowing inclusiveness for their own; a tribal Religion.Their hands have been tied since the completion in 800AD.
Tolerance was stopped as Priest Hilkiah & King Josiah set up Yahweh over EL in 622BC.
Long after Priest Scribe Ezra put the Shem Semites in their place over all other Semites who still worshipped the Canaanite Religion with Sumerian named Deities, where they returned to the Canaanite named ones going according to his perspectives in 456BC of a different Religion leding towards Monotheism!
Judaic Theologians have it hard today, unless they ignore the Talmud & Mitzvah.
One mo' once, very enjoyable & informative, much tks,
