Gd preventing, or permitting, sin


A passage with enormous ramifications regarding Free Will, as well as Repentance:

"The generation of Jews in the desert were so elevated that Gd would have protected them from having the opportunity to sin with the Golden Calf, but Gd allowed it to happen in order to teach future generations about the power of repentance."

(Talmud, Avodah Zarah 4b as explained by "Maharsha")

Have a great day,
