God, Lord, The Almighty- Powerful to do everything. Some kind of image, which gave us in the Thora (The first 5 books of the Old Testament) the 613 laws (according to the Jews myth).
A lot of people in the time of the 2nd Temple and the Christians later told that we have the option to choose- we, human. Can decide what we will do in this life- follow the ways of God- or sin? We have freedom. And here is the question of this essay: GOD- FREEDOM OR SALVERY? Although secularism exists, many people keep and follow the way of god. Many of this people do not want to do it- buy they think they have to.
Another group says that theyre afraid of god. And of course therere the people who want to it and believe its good- but I wont discuss them- the good people has to be left alone to make a good world. Lets go back to the question- if god gave us freedom why a person has to be afraid? And if they dont want to keep the laws-why they keep them. Here is an interview well discuses after. (I prefer to give no names) Interview 1: A (Interviewer): Hello B. I want to ask you some questions about you, religion and god.

In this interview Aaron talked to a man with a big debt: the existents of God. A doesnt know for sure if god exists. But he prefers to keep the laws of god for one reason: he is afraid, Lets go to the second group of people. I know the Nahman group of the Hassidic people in Israel- but Im sure that theres a similar group in the Christian community. Here is a short part of an interview with a Nahman Hassid. A: (interviewer): Do you want to keep the laws of god? I mean, do you enjoy keeping it? B: no.
I dont want to do it and I dont enjoy it but I do it. I guess your next question will be why? So I answer you- people have to follow gods way. And not because we fear god but because were useless without god. And if we follow gods laws we have a meaning to our lives. .. (The English Library of Israel, God and religion, Journey to find God- Aaron Rozenblum).
In this case- B thinks that we have to follow his ways to receive a meaning for lives- not because he wants to: Conclusion: The question of this essay is: GOD- FREEDOM OR SALVERY? My conclusion is that theres no 100% of freedom and our own good will about keeping the Lords rules. There is fear, and another things. Lets hope that god will listen to those who follow his laws because of true believe and bring peace to this world- and make the people love each other. Ely Vidal- Israel..
