Chabad and Elokistim

Via Tzemach Atlas:
A disturbing trend, Elokism. Apparently, there are arguably the seeds of a movemen within Chabad to believe that the Rebbe is one and the same with G-d, Rachmana Litzlan. The movement hasn't got much momentum, but its very presence is disturbing nonetheless. I am sure every Lubavitcher reading of this (and every other Jew as well) will fight furiously to keep these fanatics from making any sort of inroad anywhere. Remember, if this is true, they are using your good name for evil purposes, and thwarting any positive actions done in the name of Chabad.

  • What are you saying?

    Are you saying that Elokism is not real or is a trumped up "anti-Chabad issue?

    I hope that you are right.

  • Upon further examination, it does seem much ado about nothing. The decalration of Rebbe equals G-d is not nearly so clear from the source as from the accuser. I am sure you understand that a matter like this could not be taken lightly.

    On the other hand, those that spread this accusation should really be aware that it is similar to spreading a false story against a restaurant using poisoned food. It does its damage regardless of its factual truth. Chevra, let's spread this story no further, and stomp it out whereever it show up.

  • This is obviously a wrng "trend" that goes against basic jewish beliefs. I disagree with the part about fighting back. Simply fighting back gives them power because it proves that they are a recognized group and groups are entitled to their opinions. If however we simply disasosiate ourselfs from these people we remove their status and then no jewish people will even consider asossiation with such a rediculous idea. I geuse my point can be related to by the phrase; "There is no king with no people".
