Twice a day, Jews cover their eyes with their right hand, and say This Line in The Blessing of The Shema:
"Hear, O Israel: The L-rd is our G-d, the L-rd is One"
(Deuteronomy 6: 4-9)
So, let us explain to you Monotheistic Judaism.
What is Monotheistic Judaism?
Well first of all, let's define Monotheism:
"Monotheism is the belief that there is only One G-d"
Therefore Monotheistic Judaism is the ideology in Judaism that there is One and Only One G-d
Monotheistic Judaism is communicated very clearly in The Torah without any room to debate whether or not it is true.
Importance of Monotheism in Judaism
The First and Second Commandments are:
- "Believe in G-d"
- "There is Only One G-d"
And Everything in The Torah is Exact.
So, the fact that these are the First and Second Commandments in Judaism shows how serious and important Monotheism is in Judaism.
Jews will know that worshipping idols is one of the most serious sins a Jew can do.
However, in today's World, how many people do you see worshipping celebrities, sports athletes and World leaders?
Or beyond those three examples, how many people do you see worshipping money?
It is a huge problem we face in the World today...
So, how do we reallign our views to match with Monotheistic Judaism?
You need to detach from trying to control every outcome.
And you need to understand that Everything Comes from G-d
Why do people worship money?
Because they think it is the cure to everything.
Yet you will find plenty of people who have all the money in The World but are still depressed.
It takes a lot of humility to achieve a lot in life and understand that all of it came from One and only One, G-d
Why Monotheistic Judaism is so vital to each and every one of us is that it gives us guidance in life.
Once you understand that there is One and Only One, G-d
You can then learn what is required from you in The Torah
And once you know what is required of you, you can start to act accordingly and as you act accordingly, life will unfold in a beautiful way.
But the second you let your ego get in the way and think that you can control things, that is when you become lost and fall apart.
See, humility allows you to know that Their is One Master Creator who runs Everything.
And letting G-d Run The Show will allow you to live a meaningful life, exactly how it is supposed to be.
Is Judaism Monotheistic or Polytheistic?
As you just read in the previous paragraph, it is The Second Commandment to not believe in other G-d's and that there is only One G-d
Again, it is unfortunate that many Jews get lost in their day to day lives and, whilst it is not intentionally, they worship and idolize other people.
While they should only be worshipping and idolizing G-d
But it is important to clarify: there is no debate whether or not Judaism is Polytheistic.
It is a known fact in Judaism that there is One and Only One G-d
There you have it.
One and Only One, G-d
As it clearly explains in The First and Second Commandments.
Till next time.
