Gentiles; Equal?
Moshe Ben-Chaim
Reader: Why are the 7 Noachide commands the system for Gentiles to follow? Do you think it would be bad to try to understand life principles out of the other laws of the Jews? Why or why not?
Mesora: Gentiles definitely benefit with the more commands they keep. Gentiles are no less "man" than Jews are. We are both descendants of the same man Noah. Perhaps, God wished that there are at the least, one people who are entrusted with the correct ideas, to teach them to all mankind. By entrusting one group, it does not mean that all others will not benefit equally, it means that this was the minimum that could be required. As a matter of fact, we say in our prayers that ultimately, all the Earth will recognize the Torah.
