Don’t Run To Fleeting Pleasure

Dr. Michael LaitmanTorah, Deuteronomy 27:25: Cursed be he who takes a bribe to put an innocent person to death. And all the people shall say, ‘Amen!’

From time immemorial bribes were condemned. People were always punished for them. However, punishment by a curse is a very serious punishment.

By spilling the blood of an innocent, the “desire” in myself, I kill the “person” in me, that is, the next corrected state that could appear in me as a “person,” as part of a corrected soul. If I don’t do it, I take a bribe, meaning that I took a pleasure for myself instead of correcting part of my soul. This is the curse.

I went after the fleeting delight that attracted me instead of moving toward the next spiritual degree.

Question: Is it called that I spilled the blood of an innocent?

Answer: Yes. However, this is not just “spilling blood.” What you have done is one thing, but the fact that you also receive a curse in addition to it is something different. Now you are obliged to redeem yourself twice in order to be somehow corrected in the future, because you fall to a great depth.
