Beyond Belief, Lesson One: Beyond Belief
Is faith blind? In the Jewish sense, faith is less an act of unquestioning belief than an act of faithfulness, integrity, and trust. Rambam’s principles are the thirteen “big ideas” that form the basis of our powerful bond with G-d. In our first lesson, we examine the principle of G-d’s omniscience, a worldview that contrasts starkly with the Greek belief that G-d created the world and then left it to its own devices. This principle lays the groundwork for a personal and intimate relationship with G-d.
