New Perspective to Emunah

In the name of the Beis Aharon, Maran HaRav Aharon Walkin zt"l, I heard from my father that there is a different approach to Emunah - believing in God. This belief comes from the fact that it is written in the Holy Torah, "I am Hashem your God" (Exodus 20:2). As Jews who received the Torah and were at Har Sinai, we believe in everything that is written in it, without any doubts. We believe that the Holy Torah and everything in it is an absolute reality. Furthermore, the Jewish people are Am Hatorah - "people of the Torah." Accordingly, Jews must compare their thinking with the Torah and only consider what is written in it accurate. No other ideas or realities are valid for us. In other words, our belief in God is not just a matter of faith or knowledge but a din -a ruling. We are obligated to accept and believe that there is a Creator and Ruler of the world based on the Torah, which declares, "I am Hashem your God."
