What Was The Mistake of Enosh?

Divine Code for August 13, 2022

Today: Page 113

Topic 1:3 -- 1:5

The L-rd G-d said, "I am G-d, do not exchange with Me."

The basic idea is that anyone who actually serves any part of physical or spiritual creation is an idolater.

Idolatry developed within a few generations.

Step 1: Enosh and his generation thought that creation was a separate existence from God. As a result, they thought that there were powers in creation besides God whom God had appointed as servants of Him to study the world and that these should be worshipped.

Step 2: False prophets told people that these powers wanted to be worshiped in temples in specific ways.

Step 3: False prophets told the people that these powers spoke against them and imposed their demands on the people.

The consequence was that in Noah's generation, people no longer recognized and acknowledged the True God.

Let us serve G-d only in the way He desires.
