Declaration of Principles
Evangelistic Two-House Information Center (E.T.H.I.C.)
ETHIC is a clearing-house for sharing and disseminating information about the history and modern locations of all the tribes of Israel. ETHIC will also address other specialized but related topics involving the history of the tribes of Israel and their activities in the modern world.
ETHIC acknowledges the divinely-inspired nature of the Holy Bible, both the Old Testament (the Hebrew Bible) and the New Testament.
Many of ETHIC’s founders are Torah-observant Christians who recognize the Christian faith was founded on the biblical laws and heritage of the Old Testament.
ETHIC is not a church nor is it sponsored or funded by any church denomination. ETHIC is not a venue for churches, denominations or individuals to proselytize or recruit others to a particular faith or denomination. It is open to people of all faiths who have a genuine interest in the history or modern whereabouts of the tribes of Israel. However, since the subject matter on ETHIC’s website discusses and examines topics addressed in the narrative and prophetic accounts of the Bible, it will likely appeal most to those sharing and recognizing a Judeo-Christian heritage based on the Bible.
ETHIC recognizes that a person’s personal religious beliefs and perspectives may sometimes be linked to views expressed in books, articles, etc. about subjects involving the tribes of Israel, but care should be exercised to not include unrelated denominational material in such writings.
ETHIC recognizes that scholars, researchers, authors and other interested persons will have honest differences of opinion regarding topics involving the tribes of Israel (their history, migrations, modern tribal locations, etc.).
ETHIC understands that authors and others featured on its website and in future ETHIC activities and functions will have unique perspectives and conclusions on subject matter involving the tribes of Israel.
ETHIC encourages this diversity of scholarly viewpoints as ETHIC believes that the goal of discovering the truth about the Israelite tribes’ history and modern locations can best be served by publicizing and airing all responsible viewpoints on the subject. Participants in ETHIC’s website and any future activities (regional seminars, tours, etc.) agree to interact with each other in a spirit of mutual respect and appreciation for the beliefs and dignity of all other participants. Failure to do so will result in forfeiture of rights to participate in ETHIC activities.
ETHIC believes the modern descendants of the biblical ten tribes of Israel (the house of Israel) are found mostly, but not exclusively, in the nations of modern Europe, Scandinavia, the British Isles, North America, Australia, New Zealand and portions of other nations.
ETHIC believes the modern descendants of the house of Judah are mostly, but not exclusively, found among the modern Israelis and Jews.
ETHIC recognizes that participants in ETHIC’s website will have different viewpoints regarding the use of Divine Names. Most Christians are comfortable with such terms as God the Father, Jesus Christ, etc. Many Messianic/Hebraic believers prefer such names as Yahweh and Yahshua (Yeshuah). People of the Jewish faith will likely be comfortable with such terms as God and Hashem.
ETHIC is not a church denomination, but a clearinghouse where people of different faiths may share and obtain information about the ten tribes of Israel as well as the tribes in the house of Judah. Ethic does not dictate or require the use of a particular system of Divine Nomenclature. Participants may utilize the Divine Terms with which they are most comfortable as long as the Divine Terms are used in a respectful and reverent manner.
ETHIC acknowledges the inspired nature and modern applicability of biblical prophecies about the tribes of Israel. ETHIC particularly notes that biblical prophecies about the modern tribes of Israel have been fulfilled among modern nations descended from the tribes of Israel, and that these fulfillments affirm that the Creator God of Israel guides and shapes human events and national destinies.
ETHIC aspires to assist and help the modern nations of the tribes of Israel to realize and recognize their biblical and Israelite history and heritage.
ETHIC seeks to promote mutual recognition, respect and good-will among the nations of the modern house of Israel and the house of Judah.
ETHIC intends to encourage all people, Israelite or non-Israelite, to observe the laws and commandments given by the Creator God who inspired the Bible.
ETHIC believes that nations and individuals who strive to serve and obey the laws and will of the Creator God will derive blessings for doing so.
