Is There A Pillar Used Today?

Updated: Sep 5, 2022

Divine Code for September 2, 2022

Today: Page 152

Topic 6:4 -- 6:6

On the 31st of August we learned that it is forbidden to erect a pillar for worship. It does not matter if that worship is for an idol or for G-d. After G-d saw that people started using pillars to worship idols, He became displeased with this way of worship.

The prohibition against worshipping G-d at a pillar is also because there is a chance that over time people will begin to attribute "holiness" to the pillar itself.

A contemporary example of such a pillar is the Ka'aba stone in Mecca. Besides the prohibition of using a pillar for worship, this is also a pillar, custom and practice that arose after Sinai. Because of this, this custom also falls under the prohibition of making a new religion.
