all the families of the earth. Instead,
they got the narrow view that merely
the Elect would be saved, who to all
eternity would look over the battle
ments of Heaven aud see all others of
mankind in torture, and hear their
groans to all eternity.
Only now are Bible students getting
back to the teachings of Scripture
Only now are we learning the true im
port of St. Paul's words. "If ye be
Christ's, then are ye Abraham's Seed,
and heirs according to the promise."
God's Call to Abraham.
Abraham's birthplace was Ur. one
hundred twenty miles north of the
Persian Gulf. His father Terah was a
heathen. Polytheism prevailed - the
worshiping of many gods. From Ur.
tlie family migrated to Haran, about
five hundred miles in the direction of
Palestine. There Abraham remained
until Ternh's death.
God's dealings with Abraham, accord
lng to St. Stephen <Acts 7:2, 3). began
while he was in Ur. God called him
out of his evil surroundings, to be the
founder of a new nation, holy and
obedient to God. The migration from
Ur to Hnrnu took the family aw<\
from the idolatrous sceues of the ir
tropolls to pastoral life. In har mo:
with the Divine call. . Abraham, then
seventy-five years .old? Sis wife Sara li
'dv.d his nephew i-Ou \v itli their flocks
nud herds, moved to Canaan after the
death of Ternh.
Abraham's Great Faith In God.
Abraham was full of faith. This
feature of his-character especially en
deared him to the Almighty, who, be
cause of it, styled him His friend. The
Bible does not claim that Abraham was
perfect The reverse of this ls de
clared-"There is none righteous I per
feet], no, not one." (Romans 3:10.1
None measure up to the glorious image
of God represented by Adam.
Abraham was not the friend of God
because of his great education, nor for
his wonderful intellectual powers. Nev
ertheless, he had intellectual powers
The fnct that he was very rich Indi
cates that be was a good manager. His
skill as a leader was shown when Lot
j and the wealthy Sodomites were taken
I captive by Chedorlaomer. Abraham
promptly armed three hundred and
eighteen of his servants, pursued thf
victors and recovered the spoils.
But lt was not for his skill as a gen
eral that God loved Abraham. The
special quality that God esteemed in
him ls repeatedly mentioned In the Bi
ble as having been his faith. "Abra
ham believed God."
