"Cheaters" [Reblogged from Kineti L'Tziyon]
I realized something after reading Judah's newest post. In it, he describes the fallout of divorce and how this broken-homeness is often self-perpetuating.
It occurred to me just now that broken-homeness also happens when a congregation splits in half. Think about it: all of those damaged relationships, trust destroyed, people who used to be friends who now have to avoid each other wherever they go.
So if G-d hates it when the relationship between a husband and wife is permanently destroyed, doesn't He also hate it when relationships are permanently destroyed on a massive scale in the form of a communal split?
Maybe if a covenant is needed between a man and a woman then it is also needed between members of a Messianic community.
