Man’s Only Sin

laitman_276.04Question: Why do the original sources say that the only sin of man is when he does not ask the Creator for help?

Answer: If we are completely in the Creator, completely tied to Him and without exception, we receive from Him, no matter what desires and intentions we have, even the worst, most rude ones, all that remains for us is to constantly, purposefully turn to Him so that He will change us and bring us closer to Him and reveal what we should do regarding Him.

That is, the sin does not lie in the fact that I did something in relation to another person or to the Creator, but in the fact that I did not ask the Creator to give me the strength to consciously turn to Him, to consciously perceive what I receive from Him.

Question: So, while I live unconsciously, then, in principle, there is nothing to demand from me, there can be nothing to demand from any animal?

Answer: Sure.
