<1>It is very important to realize that the
word "Jew" was selected to identify a certain people. However, each
individual is responsible for his own actions, regardless of race or
creed. <2>In fact, no individual (his
Soul) belongs to anything in this world or in the world to come.
He is a Soul made to progress, not to be bound to any human or body
<3>People who are born in a specific race or
place are there for gaining a certain experience or for repaying
some of their past deeds. Therefore, no one can look down at any
particular race or creed. <4>A man should be honored or
dishonored for his individual actions, not because his body (for the
reason of genetic combination) belongs to any special race.
<5>The reason for this repetition in
explanation is to make this point completely clear that we should
not recognize an individual as a Jew, but we should look at the name
as an identification for a special group of people who were
chosen to be an example for the rest of humanity. This is to teach
humans that the Law of
is true and is not just a philosophy. That is, no Jew is responsible
for the misdeeds of his ancestors, but he is a free Soul without
ties to any binding force in this universe.
<6>Therefore, each Soul should make his
choice in his life of be(com)ing
Divine or not. <7>However, when the whole community fails
in a case, those who were part of that failure will be punished. But
those who realize the truth of the revelations by the
understand the truth behind history and
God's Plan will be saved as free Souls.
