THE TRUTH ABOUT THE CABALA
Some scholars have attempted to trace the pseudepigraphical (i.e., false) books of the Cabala back to ancient civilizations. The oldest versions have been theorized to extend from Assyrian theology and mysticism. Skeptical scholars find attempts to read Kabbalah back into the pre-Israelite Ancient Near East, to be implausible. They point out that the doctrine of the Sefirot started to seriously develop only in the 12th century AD with the publication of the Bahir, and that for this doctrine to have existed undocumented within Judaism from the time of the Assyrian empire which fell in the 7th Century B.C. until it "resurfaced" 17–18 centuries later seems very unlikely. However, let's give this idea the benefit of the doubt for a second, and see what it would imply...
Simo Parpola, professor of Assyriology at the University of Helsinki,
remarks on the general similarity between the Sefirot of the
Kabbalistic Tree of Life and the Tree of Life of Assyria. He
reconstructed what an Assyrian antecedent to the Sephiroth might look
like, and noted parallels between the characteristics of En Sof on the
nodes of the Sefirot and the gods of Assyria. The Assyrians assigned
specific numbers to their gods, similar to the numbering of the
Sefirot. Also,floating above the Assyrian Tree of Life was the god
Assur corresponding to the Hebrew Ain Soph, which is derived from
the Assyrian word Assur.Parpola saw the similarities in various
Assyrian tablets with the Kaballa and concluded that traces of this
Assyrian mode of thought and philosophy eventually somehow reappeared
in Greek Philosophy and the Kabbalah. Even if this idea was true, God
has forbidden the combining of Judaism with the Paganism of other
cultures numerous times in the Bible! Refer to the section on C H R S T
I A N W I C C A. So even if the Kabbala did somehow manage to
originate from ancient Assyrian idol worship, it's still an abomination!
