comment Jewish concept of angels
@Monica Cellio there are two groups of angels (in this discussion) one group has absolutely no will (they are like pre-programmed robots) the other group does have free will (within certain paramaters) but not anywhere near what us humans have. so in short yes it was by divine command

comment What can I do to change myself permanently through the repentance process?
This is the trickiest part. Speaking with a mentor helps. Concerning sources most of this is found in Klalei Hachinuch Vehadracha (by Rabbi Yosef Yitzchok Schneerson)

comment How can we be sure that Judaism is the truth?
Here are some good places to start: - Kuzari (a sefer - translated into English - that discusses Judaism vs Christianity, Islam, and Aristotelianism) - Bachya ibn Pekuda wrote Chovos Halevovos (Duties of the Heart - also translated into English)
