Derech Hashem – The Way of G-d 2:5:1

Till now we’ve been discussing the rules G-d Himself set up for our interactions with Him and His with us 1. From now to the end of the chapter we’ll touch upon the mechanisms He set up to implement those interactions 2.

But let’s first cite the fact that G-d interacts with the world on two levels overall 3 there’s His perception of things, and His influence upon them.


1 As when we discussed why the righteous sometimes suffer and the wrongful succeed, why we don’t understand G-d’s ways, the makeup of the Afterlife, etc.

2 Such as the establishment of courts and laws, the role that angels play, etc.

3 Though there are an infinite number of offshoots.
