It’s just scary.
I mean, this Parasha’s concept…
This person, the evil Bilaam, a notorious sorcerer, but a prophet for gentiles too, in his free time, seems to have a direct line to HaShem. He worships HaShem (as well as other “deities”) and declares he can do nothing without permission from G-d.
He seems quite a saint.
But we know he’s not.
I say that’s scary.
Because it means a person may be in close proximity to HaShem and still be evil. A servitor to the Sitrah Achra.
And we, the religious people, try to come as close to Him as possible, and sometimes, we even believe we succeed. But could it be we that we worship the wrong way, just like this old Bill? (aam)
What’s the difference, really, between us – and him?
I really want to hear your opinion!
