apologize by sundown

it reminds me of when I was a kid -
I could do what I wanted, and, IF I got caught, I could say "I'm sorry and I'll never do it again" thinking they were stupid to believe me.
So do we think our creator is stupid?

Ok yes it is a tv show and it was funny to watch. But it gives a poor representation of what Yom Kippur is all about.
I come from a conservative Jewish family and I used to do all the things one is not supposed to do on Yom Kippur. Some people in that community may have that care free attitude but some may take it seriously. So its a two way street some do see the holiness of the holiday and some don't The show took the attitude of those who don't only to show us that we must all take it seriously as a people who are being judged on that day and every day.

Because ...

People, on the whole, hear them speaking fluently (after practice) and confuse it with intelligence!

A friend and I were discussing Christian deathbed repentance in much the same way, the intent is what is important and the beauty is freedom!
