Guilty or Innocent?

Updated: Aug 23, 2022

Divine Code for August 19, 2022

Today: Page 124

Topic 3:7 -- 3:11

It is forbidden to slaughter an animal for an idol because sacrifices may be made only to the Eternal One.

Only the person who slaughters the animal for idolatry is guilty if someone helps to slaughter the animal and he does not know that the animal is intended for idolatry is not guilty.

In our day, prayers are called our sacrifices.

Say to Him:

aMeaning of Heb. uncertain.“Forgive all guilt

And accept what is good;

Instead of bulls we will pay

[The offering of] our lips.-a (Hosea 14:3)

One who prays to an idol commits a sin; one who prays with this person, not knowing that he is praying to an idol, but thinking that he is praying to the Eternal One is not guilty.
