To Have Peace We Must Differ

Often we think of peace as getting everyone to feel or think the same. Peace is actually not about being the same, it's about being different

Righteous Jews and righteous gentiles go to heaven? How do we know we are righteous and how can we do enough righteousness or even know how much righteousness we have done or if it is enough to get us to heaven? Please answer my question fully. Reply

in response to Quaid:

When we commit ourselves to the purpose G-d created us for by making a genuine effort to increasingly improve our dedication toward this purpose, we can be sure that we will go to heaven. For Jews, it's a commitment to the 613 commandments and for Gentiles, it's a commitment to the 7 Noahide laws. Reply

Thank you for your comment Glenn. You may not have heard my comments at the end when I say that "we're different, but work to the same cause and to the same purpose." That cause and purpose is revealing the Divine presence into every aspect of this world. "All that G-d created in His world, He only created for his glory." It is our job to reveal that glory, each in our individual capacity that He has given us.
Indeed, Judaism is the most liberal (not in the political sense) of all religions. It respects the individual Divine role of every person, Jew and Gentile alike. Reply

Rabbi, respectfully, I think you greatly misstate your case for diversity. You sound like a flaming liberal, accepting every type of diversity for its' own sake. There is only one goal and one truth - serving Hashem and Torah truth. To be sure, there can be many paths to the one truth. Reply
