Stay tuned for upcoming post: Betrayal. It’s not just what’s done to us. It’s what we do on cloaked and not-so-cloaked levels to others. To ourselves. To God. The betrayal swimming within and without—whenever an action, word, or soul-thought crushes trust and taints spiritual and moral standards.

Betrayal starts small and then grows invasively. In the heart. In the thoughts and intents of our mind. In the soul. Our moldy soul.
The Betrayal Within series starts by mirroring my earlier Moldy Soul posts (2008-2009, later expanded)—exploring the makings of a moldy soul with some rabbinic thought woven in and searching how that rose to the surface and dismantled certain biblical relationships. Situations and their aftermath mirrored in our lives today.
This revised series turns up the volume a bit on the moldy-soul narrative and digs into full-on betrayal. Its seeds. Its growth. Its cunning. Its nemesis.
Within us, our families/friends—and our relationship with God.
