Bnei Noah

     Bnei Noah

 

     Two of these young men walked up to me at the Kotel and asked if my name is Gutman. They are from Latin America They said that they saw one of my YouTube videos, Answers to a Pastor  . The video has gone viral on other channels, especially with foreign language subtitles and has received over 3 ½ million views.

     "We are Bnei Noah and we liked your video so much."

     There is a beautiful, growing movement of non-Jews coming to the Seven Laws of Noah. It is such a good thing for them.

     "Good for you. When you study and keep the 7 Commandments almost all of them are easy to understand, but the first one is not so simple. The first commandment is, 'No idolatry'. In order to keep this commandment you have to know what an idol is. This means that you have to have some idea of what Hashem is. Where is G-d?"

     They both said, "Everywhere."

     "Good for you! I patted one of them on the shoulder. An idol is in only one place. It is limited. It's either a man, or a moon, or a tree, or whatever. But you know that G-d is everywhere."

     They were beaming. Just then their friend walked up.

     I asked him, "Where is G-d?" He patted his heart.

    "Oh, oh!"

     I looked at the other two and said, "Tell him where G-d is."

     They both smiled and said, "Everywhere!"

     I shook my finger at the third boy and told him, "Only worship the Infinite G-d. Infinite means without end. G-d is everywhere."

     "Now, if you want to go even further, help your friends to learn this deepest truth, too. Every time you help someone, not only do you make the world better place, but G-d will help you, too."

     They walked away very happy. They are good people doing good in the world. They also love Israel and the Jewish people. They will have a wonderful life in this world and a share in the World to Come.
