Quote of the Day: Konvitz on One Law



"In God's dependence upon man we find the secret of the doctrine of election.  God was unknown in the world which He had made; men worshiped sticks and stones; they did nothing to enhance His glory; so God looked down upon the human scene and found some men with whom He made a bargain.  He said to them that if they would spread His name and make known to the rest of mankind that there is one God and that He has one law of righteousness for all men everywhere, He would try to look after them in some special way...There would be no glory in human life if man could not feel that whatever he does...he does in a way that is worthy of a being made in the image of God," Milton Ridvas Konvitz, "Judaism and Human Rights", pg. 30.
