Based on your understanding of the “Noahide” laws for gentiles, the seven laws which have the death penalty attached, does someone commit a capital crime (a violation of the seven laws) in either of these scenarios below? 1: Someone lives with multiple people, and they eat every single piece of food in the house. That can’t be theft, right, because they are a partial owner of all the food, right? 2: Someone makes up a joke deity-serving ritual. The ritual is to place a hand on a tree and say something five times, but it’s a joke. If someone performs the ritual (but not wholeheartedly, and lazily, skipping some minor details), would that be a violation of the prohibition of worshipping an idol.
