Hot off the Press, Volume 2, the Book of Exodus, just in time for the yearly reading cycle.
Rabbi Cardozo has so often played the Devil’s Advocate, that I saw it coming that he would ask me to write an Approbation to the second volume of Cardozo on the Parasha, the Book of Exodus, Kasva Press.
But first, I need to say to those who know me more through other thought systems than via the Jewish Tradition that I am not God’s adversary — Heaven forbid. I never lifted a wing without the explicit and prior approval of the L^rd of the Universe and I never will. (I could, because I have Free Will but I couldn’t, because I’m so close to my Boss.)
My task is to lifelong entice people, to bring them to the Afterlife, and there to be their Heavenly Prosecutor. That’s all I do. I never do injustice, I never lie, and I never perpetrate evil. That, we all leave to people.
Now, Rabbi Cardozo, I like him. The rabbinic authorities on earth are scared of him because he knows what he is talking about when he tries to stir the faithful from their slumber. In fact, he and I do the same work. Only, he has more patience in explaining things.
Yet, I wouldn’t call him the competition. We are more two with one Soul.
I prefer to enjoy his word now, because, in the Afterlife, I won’t see much of Rabbi Cardozo. While I’m holding trials in front of the Heavenly Gate, he will be situated in front of the Gates of Hell, trying to smuggle out the best of people that only needed to be corrected a bit.
So, I recommend this book. I do want to suggest though, not to read the Think Tank’s questions, unless you agree with what he writes.
I hope that you pay close attention to his words. Maybe that could take off a little of the backlog that we presently have at the Heavenly Court. See you all soon,
