    Perhaps very soon when Mr. Obama is in dire need of a healing touch for a grave disease, he will call upon Allah for help, and find there is no such being. I never realized until reading your comments today that the one verse there in Genesis calls Isaac Abraham's one-and-only-son!!

    Yesterday I saw a man at the Local hospital offering The lords healing touch to a passer by. What a wonderful site to behold. This Godly man already knew thru spirit what was ailing the man. I watched as the patient's wife looked on in wonder, and all the while knowing that this was going to affect her for the rest of her life.
    What bravery and devotion and faith does one have to have to share a faith so strong in a public place? Do we ever see Muslims doing this? Do they even believe in this sort of works? If God is all powerful then why would they not?
    (Mat 7:16 Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? )

    Thanks for all you do. I have a lot of contact with muslims online trying to open their hearts to hear the word of God in a way that isn't offensive. The is so much delusion in Islam that is subtle and compelling. Please pray for me as I forge relationships with Muslim ladies who desperately need to hear the truth.

    Every single American should read this… Such deception – just as the bible tells us.

    Thanks John!

    Thank you John for all this wonderful research. I had no idea that Koran was written to directly oppose the Bible's teaching. The way you spell out the Sura's and how they come against the existence of Christ crucifixtion and the claim of Ishmael being the only son of Abraham.

    I would like to point out Chapter 9 in Romans (ref to Anonymous's comment) that give even more details about the children of Abraham – both literally and futuristically.

    Romans 9:6-15 (New Living Translation)

    6 Well then, has God failed to fulfill his promise to Israel? No, for not all who are born into the nation of Israel are truly members of God’s people! 7 Being descendants of Abraham doesn’t make them truly Abraham’s children. For the Scriptures say, “Isaac is the son through whom your descendants will be counted,”[a] though Abraham had other children, too. 8 This means that Abraham’s physical descendants are not necessarily children of God. Only the children of the promise are considered to be Abraham’s children. 9 For God had promised, “I will return about this time next year, and Sarah will have a son.”[b]

    10 This son was our ancestor Isaac. When he married Rebekah, she gave birth to twins.[c] 11 But before they were born, before they had done anything good or bad, she received a message from God. (This message shows that God chooses people according to his own purposes; 12 he calls people, but not according to their good or bad works.) She was told, “Your older son will serve your younger son.”[d] 13 In the words of the Scriptures, “I loved Jacob, but I rejected Esau.”[e]

    14 Are we saying, then, that God was unfair? Of course not! 15 For God said to Moses,

    “I will show mercy to anyone I choose,
    and I will show compassion to anyone I choose.”

    Thank you John! I'm a big fan of your blog!! Blessings to you!
