Biblical Faith – with Shmuel “Sam” Peak
Emunah channel is here. For Info www.torahfaith.org
Human actions that constitute either service of HaShem or transgression can take place only if three factors are present: 1) choice by the heart and mind; 2) intent and resolve to do what one has chosen; 3) the effort to complete the intended act with one’s limbs and bring it into actuality.
In regard to what is not hidden [or removed] from us, such as the choice of service or transgression, and what one has chosen, relying on HaShem in these would be erroneous and foolish; for the Creator, may He be exalted, has left to us the choice of serving Him of rebellion against Him, as it is written: “Choose life” (Devarim 30:19). But the carrying out of the intended act of service or transgression He did not leave to us, but made it dependent on external means that are sometimes present and at other times unavailable.
