According To The Laws Of Our World

laitman_567.04Question: If someone is hurting me in our world, is it necessary to settle the conflict with love?

Answer: No. In this world we act according to its laws. The action is equal to counteraction. A person must be educated, knowing not to harm others.

The Torah says: “An eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth.” Many people had problems in the passage through the Sinai desert, and Moses always punished them. Correction by punishment lasted for 40 years, until the generation was completely replaced by a new one, ready to enter the land of Israel.

The Torah does not speak about forgiveness. And we don’t see it anywhere in the world! That is all just beautiful words and lies! Why should we act like this if our nature does not take it at all?

Question: What then does the phrase mean: “To love good and to hate evil”?

Answer: True, we must love good and hate evil. But this does not mean that if you are hit on one cheek, that you turn the other. This will never make an individual a person. You yourself are doing harm to him. He will see that he receives a reward for bad actions and will act this same way.
