Negative Mitzvah 285: It is forbidden to testify falsely
Exodus 20:13 "You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor"

The purpose of a witness is to testify and help prove that something is true or false.

We are forbidden to act as false witnesses and declare that something is true when we know that what we are saying is a lie.

Einstein received acclaim for demonstrating that energy and matter are one. The scientist who demonstrates how all forces are one in a unified theory will receive even greater acclaim. So, since we all agree that someone will eventually establish this, why not accept it right now, and we'll call it G-d?


It will happen with you or without you, whether you believe in it or not. True, you could help it be sooner. But the fact is, it will be in our times whether you help or not. And it will be good for you, no matter what. But have you asked yourself, "Where will I be standing, when that time comes? What will I be involved in? Will I be part of it, or will it be despite me?"
