So, here's a weird one. Much digital ink has of course been spilled on the simple fact that a God who provides equal support to all Abrahamic faiths would necessarily be highly distinct from the beliefs any individual group has about said God. However, here I'm more concerned with what qualify as pious responses to evidence of that fact. This is pretty immediately relevant to my intentions to play a Jewish Hermetic magus interested in Kabbalah, and who's gonna be living at a covenant with the pretty active presence of a saint per the Hooks and Boons we selected.
Like, according to RoP:D medieval Judaism considers sainthood as the Catholic Church practices it to be idolatry. But a Jewish mystic could pretty well confirm that a saint is using Divine power, and that the church built on the site of that saint's martyring has a huge Divine Aura. So like, at what point, if any, does acknowledging that fact become problematic for the Jewish character? Would it be opposition to something God clearly supports if you were to attempt to dissuade people from supplicating the saint on the basis of idolatry? Conversely, if God's apparent support for sainthood makes it not idolatry to supplicate saints for aid, would that permit the Jewish mystic to do so, or would he still be punished for violating the beliefs of Judaism (a la loss of True Faith)? Or is there room within the Divine functionality for updating one's personal understanding of God/Yahweh without breaking from Him, even if one would be considered in a state of sin/spiritual uncleanliness by either community, by like, idk, incorporating sainthood as a concept into your belief system without actually converting to Christianity?
Obviously it's up to me to decide what my character does, but I'd like to hear you guys' thoughts on the metaphysics side of things.
