He didn't Know it Was an Idol

Updated: Sep 1, 2022

Divine Code for August 26, 2022

Today: Pages 136-140

Topic 3:34 -- 3:36

A gentile who serves idols in error is exempt from punishment.

What is meant by erring? Either he did not know that this was an idol or he performed an action before a statue but he did not know that it is an idol that is traditionally worshiped in that manner.

There are actions that are not idol worship at all, and yet it is fitting for one to distance himself from them, since it appears to others as if he is serving or honoring idols.

If a sect of idolatry became extinct and it is not no longer practiced in the world, one who serves the idol in this way but does not accept it as a deity is not liable since the worship of this idol is now extinct and it no longer has any specific service.
