How does our faith guide our present domestic and civil actions?
The Bible recommends and inculcates orderly behavior, as well as purity of heart and life. They who, under the sanction of religion, trample underfoot the decent forms of civil respect, supposing that because they are religious they have a right to be rude, totally mistake the spirit of Christianity, for love or charity (the soul and essence of Christianity) behaveth not itself unseemly.
The amazing story of Abraham and Isaac.
Resurrection hope and God’s promises; the joy of faith; God preserves Ishmael; a peace treaty between two nations; the everlasting God.
Abraham lies to good king Abimelech; God communicates with Abimelech; The First Prophet; Abraham’s confession; Bigotry embraces false information; Abimelech teaches Abraham and Sarah about truth and faithfulness.
