    This is a good example of obedience of believers. Obedience to God is the best thing that God can ask from us. Reading how Abram is God chosen and blessed, I'm striving to be obedient to God and deny myself before him.

    Actually Irene, the only way to get to understand the scriptures, as mentioned in the Bible, is to ask God for wisdom and knowledge of the scriptures. He upbraideth not. People get in trouble trying to use their own brains. Brings confusion. More gospels that are not gospels. Leading more people astray. GB

    Isa. 1:18- The Lord is not the author of confusion - 1 Cor. 14:33. He wants us to 'reason' out His word, to use the brains He gave us. V. 3 - " ..... a great nation ..... "; that's Israel. God doesn't have to spell everything out for us.
