God has no partner. He is the best creator, omnipotent. His creations cannot be matched with any other creation.
He does not need any planning to creat. He created the world, to test his best creation of mankind and this world is a testing home for an interim period to know good human beings and separate them from bad ones on the Day of Judgement. If we wish to win the love of G-d we have to do good deeds, live in peace, harmony and worship Him sincerely. Thank you and have a blessed day ! Reply

Personal responsibility... it is a difficult concept for people to comprehend. This concept requires us to be responsible for the condition of our own world. Yes it seems much safer and easier to deny this responsibility. But if we are not responsible for our own world, than who is? And steeped in such denial, what legacy can we leave our children? Reply

Surprised this is on Chabad. Incongruent with several basic Jewish tenets all described in various articles also on Chabad website. And the world is messed up because of us but the video is saying we were created to make this world better which is therefore logically impossible (unless there were two creations of us and we know that there weren't) Reply

in response to Adam:

I have known a few people who say there are two stories, of two creations, in Genesis but I don't read it that way. So I agree with you that there weren't two creations of us. Reply

Sorry, the brownie mix isn't a good metaphor. You dip your finger into brownie mix -- avoiding the raw egg, of course! -- and all you think is, "Yum!"
Same with soup.
Now, meatloaf, maybe ... Reply
