Studying Sha’ar HaBitachon, Rabbeinu Bachaya’s “Gate of Trust” ~ the Timeless Torah Book that can teach US ALL to How to Live with Certainty and Discover Tranquility!
Chapter Three, Part Twenty-Four: “THE INHERITANCE CYCLE”
In this new Episode we continue to address theological challenge engendered by the Prosperity of the Wicked. Here, a final two possible rationales for the often-stunning success and goodness G-d seems to bestow upon bad people, are provided!
Although, of course, Rabbainu Bachaya cannot answer specifics, and ultimately the Ways of G-d will ever remain a mystery to us — he can and does provides a measure of intellectual comfort by presenting us with wider context and providing uplifting spiritual perspectives.
Artfully weaving strands lifted from sacred scriptural verses and narratives syntax we will a new viewpoint that depicts each frame of time as part of a much larger continuum and incorporates the many dynamic interwoven realities that together form the tapestry, we call life.
This fresh new insight proffered on the age-old theological conundrum of Why the Wicked Prosper will open our eyes to a generational goodness that may provide cause for G-d’s beneficence; almost like a Fossil Fuel that goes on to power Wicked Engines!
These final explanations complete the picture of our faith-framed window into the deeper workings of our universe, allowing to move on in our quest to build our Bitachon and achieve the inner tranquility available only with true Trust in Hashem!
Part Twenty-Four of the chapter comprises the 69th consecutive episode of this ongoing series. This class is dedicated to the elevation of the holy Soul of my paternal grandmother Sara Pesha bat Rav Nochem Yitzchak OBM, whose second yahrzeit is observed today.
