Death of Man’s Divinity

The fifth principle outlines that God alone is fitting to be worshiped and nothing else. This doesn’t just exclude the idea of idolatry but any requests prayers to angels. This course covers the Rambam’s account of how idolatry developed. This course puts forward that this principle is the basis for a liberation theology. By binding ourselves to the ethical call of God alone only then do we have the ability to respond to the world as free-willed individuals as opposed to merely react to it out of simple and biologically motivated instincts.
