An Addict Can't Live Without God

Luke Ford writes: I discuss the weekly Torah portion with Rabbi Rabbs Mondays at 7:00 pm PST on the Rabbi Rabbs cam and on YouTube. Facebook Fan Page.

This week we study Parashat Shofetim (Deuteronomy 16:18-21:9).

An addict can't live without God. Without that connection to the divine, he just destroys himself pursuing fleeting highs. Ordinary people seem to get along OK without God, but not the addict.
