How Will I know if Wearing An Evil Eye or Hamsa Hand Will Harm Me?
Do you really believe that bad omens, voodoo, and evil satanic rituals come from wearing amulets?
Or you might not.
Now, let me start off by sharing this post with you I want to make it clear that I am in no way or form attempting to humiliate the person who left this comment on our Amazon page.
I do not know her name, and she left no email.
We have had no communication at all regarding this piece of jewelry.
Also, it is against Jewish law to make fun of someone in public-- to shame them in front of others.
Bava metzia 58b
.תני תנא קמיה דרב נחמן בר יצחק: כל המלבין פני חבירו ברבים כאילו שופך דמים
One who embarrasses another in public, it is as if that person shed blood.
— Babylonian Talmud, Bava Mezia 58b
In fact, this article, although off-topic regarding amulets and Satan, explains the Talmudic verse very well.
The above passage states that if you intentionally humiliate another in front of other people, it is as if you have killed them.
Yes, it goes that far in saying that one should never-ever humiliate another person intentionally and ridicule them in public.
And in no way or form do I intend to do that, but I do need to talk about this review on Amazon-- as it harms our business and there are many interesting points to discuss.
Let's begin. This is the entire review.
But, here's the item ordered so you can visualize it:
The review starts by saying that horrible things have happened to her and that the reason for the necklace being bought was to wear it as a protector and to keep evil away.
However, does such a thing really exist?
Yes and no.
For centuries and centuries, all cultures around the world have been using, making, and wearing different types of amulets for and against evil.
The word "amulet" comes from the Latin word amulētum. The earliest use of that term was found in Pliny the Elder's Natural History from 79 CE, where it was referred to "an object that protects a person from trouble."
See, an amulet is an object that people have to BELIEVE has magical powers, strength, and phenomenal powers.
The keyword here is believe.
