    MATTHEW 11:20 THEN BEGAN HE TO UPBRAID THE CITIES WHEREIN MOST OF HIS MIGHTY WORKS WERE DONE BECAUSE THEY REPENTED NOT***TITUS 2:11 FOR THE GRACE OF GOD THAT BRINGETH SALVATION HATH APPEARED TO ALL MEN 2:12 --- TEACHING US --- THAT DENYING UNGODLINESS AND WORLDLY LUSTS WE SHOULD LIVE SOBERLY RIGHTEOUSLY AND GODLY IN THIS --- PRESENT LIFE ---

    The three Abrahamic Religions idea or slogan, is false! Abraham was called out from Ur of the Chaldees, to sever him from the heathen cult of Nimrod worship/Islam. Israel is for now not right with the Lord their God, denying and persecuting the Name of the only begotten Son of God; so God hides from them. Those who are Believers in Jesus Christ, are walking in the Spirit and the faith of Abraham.
  • Insight777
    There are 3 main religions today that believe in Abraham and the promise of the kingdom of God for their followers. These religions differ in doctrine so they oppose each other. Violent believers in their God of Abraham fight the others trying to take the kingdom of God by force. The door to the kingdom is Jesus, the Son of God. The violent do not believe Jesus is Savior so they are not saved.

    You said, "who listens anyway?" Matthew 11:5 "He that has ears to hear, let him hear." You said, "takes too much time, stressful" v.28 "Come unto me, all you that labour (work) and are heavy laden,(weary,tired,overwhelmed,burdened) and I will give you rest. Also, v.29 and 30. If you cannot find inspiration, excitement, hope for the lost, to work for the Lord, "Rest" is in the Sabbath.

    The Trinitarian world refers to manifestations of Father, Son, and Holy Ghost as 3 distinct and separate persons in the Godhead, namely "God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Ghost." If every manifestation of God was another God we'd have "God the voice (Gen. 3:8), God the burning bush, God the angel (Jacob wrestled with), God the pillar of fire, to name ONLY a few. cont.
