Background: There is a verse in the Christian scriptures (Luke 6:30) that, when read out of context, implies that a follower of osso ha’ish should give anything anyone asks for. I had heard an urban legend that anti-missionaries have used that against Jews for J——s types.
I was accosted by some Christian missionaries proselytizing in Midwood this morning and decided to try this prank. The fellow (not Jewish) said, “I’m not giving this to you to induce you to change religion; I’m giving this to you to obey the will of J——s.”
Now I have a $20 bill in my pocket, but may I spend it? Is this Takruvas Avodah Zarah?
