FAITH VERSES CHANCE AS OPPOSED TO REINCARNATION
IN EXPLAINING REWARD AND PUNISHMENT
In the preredeemed material world, chance prevails based on the
dynamics of the degree of proclivity and the degree of virtue f the inhabitants of the environment. The allegation regarding
reincarnation is that if a baby is born in a poor family and it’s hand is amputated to make it a more successful beggar,
that this is a consequence of that soul’s evils perpetrated in a past life. Those who subscribe to this worldview frequently
believe that any other explanation is precluded if in fact God is a just God.
It is my perspective that two domains prevail in the current preredeemed
world. The realm of faith is one whose inhabitants strive to know and comply with the will of the Creator. Their performance
earns them the various blessings of security, shelter, food, good health, prosperity, victory, etc., etc.
The realm of chance is one where ignorance, non-compliance and
the consequences of various degrees of human proclivity impact the lives of the inhabitants. The rabbis, regarded by the majority
of the nation of Israel as venerable sages, believe that amongst the traits shared by the similarly enlightened, is the ability
to hear the music of the spheres. I disagree with this contention. I believe that enlightened souls hear the screaming of
the souls condemned to purgatory in the world or dimension of chance. I believe that if enough people believe as I believe
that the flood of human emotion and intention would inspire our Creator to assist us in embarking on a crusade to free the
inhabitants of the dimension of chance from the horrible consequences of their ignorance, non-compliance and indulgence in
the proclivities which reduce their quality of life to the unthinkable. I believe that while the sages of Israel contemplate
the music of the spheres that they sow the seeds of a universal Jewish lifestyle disassociated from the sufferings of the
bulk of humankind. Moreover, it is my belief that this disconnect from the sufferings of mankind deludes the nation into believing
the false mythology that they are not accountable for the existence and proliferation and expansion of this purgatory in which
the bulk of God’s creatures suffer and die !
In conclusion, it is my belief that Israel was created to demonstrate
that compliance with God’s will, as it is written the written Torah, is mankind’s path to blessings, i.e., the
world of faith in which mankind can enjoy God’s blessings, including freedom from want. And it is Israel’s Divinely
ordained mission ( Genesis 9:27) to establish the moral and spiritual context for the performance of each and every human
endeavor. And finally, it is Israel’s failure to carry out its mission and live up to its purpose which are the underlying
causes of anti-Semitism and the concomitant upheavals which have terrorized, overturned and annihilated Jews for thousand
It is Israel, which is responsible for and accountable for freeing
mankind from the horrors of the world of chance. And this is the sole path for Israel to save itself from the next holocaust
which has been ripening since it was sown by the survivors – in Israel and the Diaspora –of the last one perpetrated
by the nazis with the complicity of the entire world!
