Service is an act of practicality and inculcates humility but it is very important to serve the right person, right cause or right typal being, otherwise one's efforts come to nought and besides one gets damaged in the process and if one is dealing with an adverse typal being, then, well, the dangers are immense.
I dont know where you get your notions of what it means "to serve", but I suspect it is from from Hindu cultural influence.

In Judaism, the concept in Hebrew is avodah, and in post-biblical application, it is different from your notions. The Bal Shem Tov was an avowed pantheist so obviously he did not mean "serving" a typal entity or cause in the way you suggest. His preferred method of avodah was basically the practice of loving-kindness (hesed) which, by definition, should be impossible for anyone other than most profoundly psychopathic, to find fault with.

Pure religious teachings lie in its authentic scripture which in this case under consideration happens to be the Bible.

A religion or a cult should be judged by the contents found in its authentic scripture and not on the basis of later day modifications much after the founders of the faith have passed away.

Later day reforms are add ons and find no sanction in scripture.

Really?

Then why did this brain-dead idiot, Baal Shem Tov, refer to G-d as seen below in the teaching attaributed to him?

The Baal Shem Tov taught:

"Whatever a person sees or hears contains a lesson in Divine service. This is the gist of Divine service: to realize how to serve G-d in all things."

(HaYom Yom, p. 52, cited in Kesser Shem Tov, Hosafos, 128).

So, if the Baal Shem Tov was a pantheist, he should not have referred to a typal being called G-d and should have instead spoken only of nature forces.

LMAO

The Bible is based on the teachings of a false G-d and its contents are evidently based on evil and falsehood.

ignoring your immature usage of language to denigrate others....

the answer to your query is simple - we are creatures of language - we have to objectify in order to provide a source of focus. But if you bothered to explore his "theo"logy in any detail you would note his emphasis. The problem with you is that you do not. You take pot shots. That only makes you look foolish, it doesnt add anything to the conversation.

HUGH is one hell of a smart cookie who claims to have studied Math, Science, Law, Theology and Taxation and who served as CEO of 2 MNCs and who was supposedly a Professor of Science at a national university in Jamaica. Is he prettying himself at the moment? LOL.

FEMALE CIRCUMCISION
Female genital mutilation (FGM), the excision of the clitoris practised widely in African and many Muslim countries, is a means for men to maintain control of women and must be eradicated, U.N. human rights chief Navi Pillay said on Monday. "FGM is a form of gender-based discrimination and violence. It is a violation of the right (of women and girls) to physical and mental integrity," Pillay told a gathering on the issue at the world body's Human Rights Council.
JOEL: How about condemning the barbaric pagan practice of male circumcision?
And you even think to be very smart...

Idiot,
I said the context would determine the meaning of dived and dove in case of a bird's flight and besides the word dove is pronounced differently in case of a bird and with reference to the past tense of dive.
So, both the context as well as the pronunciation of dove would determine its meaning and I repeat the pronunciation of dove as a bird is different from the pronunciation of dove when used as the past tense of dive.
So, there will not exist the least confusion.
Get it, moron?
uuff, your English sucks.
Son, say what you will as it befits your capacity. Now please try and follow. There is NO context in the Queen's English where DIVED=DOVE.

English past tense of DIVE=DIVED

American past tense of DIVE=DOVE

HUGH,
Here's something that will interest you -
In the wild, big predators like the lion, tiger, leopard, cheetah and hyena usually stay away from the honey badger since the honey badger is an aggressive little fella and is known to bite off the testicles of the animal who attacks it leaving the poor predator ball-less.
I hope your boy friend bites off your big black balls.

Dearest, when you saw them you were frightened and exclaimed those things are bigger than my mouth. Note, nothing has changed. That aside, I have been detecting that you are in need of servicing.

Where is Eric? Eric you are needed.
