Faith in the Sages


"A student is required to believe that no personal interest whatsoever could influence a sage to warp justice.

"The ambition of the sage is to purify himself, and dirtying himself with any guilt would pain him more than any wound. How could he damage himself, warping justice, for profit or flattery?

"Further, the trait of Truth is a core attribute of the sage's soul, and the root of its existence."

(R' Avraham Yeshayah Karelitz [Chazon Ish], Emunah uBitachon 3:30)

Have a great day,
