where does the moreh nevuchim say kadmut haolam is not heretical? rambam says in many places that only God can be eternally existing

@IsaacKotlicky maybe but it is much more compatible with the torah's account than aristotel's view

@LN6595 you heard this personally from Rabbi Mattisyahu solomon? if yes, that he received this from the chofetz chaim or from someone else such as rabbi elya lopian z'l

comment The Chofeitz Chayim on World War Three
from what I've read of Rabbi Elchonon's works it seems to me he believed Moshiach would come during or just after the WWII. so that conflicts with this story that he had a kabala from the chofetz chaim. could be just another rumor

comment Is there a mitzva to make known the truth of Judaism to non-Jews
@TamirEvan not as far as i know. maybe because not a binding halacha. more like mida chasidus for special individuals like avraham who he brought as an example

comment What is the logical explanation for קם ליה בדרבה מיניה?
maybe it's from love your neighbor. just like we find in death penalties that we look for least painful forms. ie have pity on the poor guy. the law is for us not him.

my question is not on the mitzvot but on the basic truth of judaism. something like the kuzari, though there the jew was invited to speak
