The Source of Islam

Posted By on October 2, 2019

– Today’s lesson entitled
The Source of Islam. We’ll be talking about Islam and its sources in a few moments. Let’s do a little review. In chapters 18 and 19 of Genesis, we saw a comparison of the type of faith that both Abraham and
Lot, his nephew, had. And we said that Abraham’s faith, although it had its ups and downs, had a certain direction, didn’t it? I mean, you could see improvement as he progressed in his faith. He accompanied or rather
accomplished certain things in the name of God through his faith. I keep coming back to the defeat of the northern kings. He had 300 men and these
were five chiefs, five kings, that he was chasing and their armies, and they defeated these. The Bible doesn’t give
us a lot of description about the battle, but it must
have been a fierce battle, and so through faith in
God, he was able to defeat these northern kings who
had kidnapped his nephew, and the goods, and the people,
and so on and so forth. He won a great victory. And then, you see him,
as his faith moves him to glorify God with his
work, to save others, to save others through his prayer. Last time, we examined
his intercessory prayer. I’m having trouble with that word today. His intercession on behalf
of Lot in his prayer. These are all maturing qualities that we see in Abraham as
he progresses in his faith. And of course the result
of Abraham’s faith was that God answered his
prayers, and blessed his life, and considered him righteous, right? He was saved, he was considered righteous because of his faith in God. Now, Lot’s faith was different. His faith was real, just as real, but he compromised with the world. When he first
wanted to live in the valley where it was, you know,
the farmland was there, and there was a lot of grazing, a lot of grass for his animals,
and so on and so forth. He lived in the valley and then pretty soon he lived in the city. And then, later on, we see he’s
not just living in the city, but he’s one of the leaders of the city. He’s sitting at the gate. And so there was a compromise there, and we could read
between the lines, right? That his wife was not
very strong in her faith to the extent that she was
turned into a pillar of salt when she looked back longingly at what they were leaving behind. We also see that he was not even able to convince his own children,
all of them anyways, to leave and to save themselves. And so his compromise with the world weakened his ability to witness, his ability and effectiveness
to teach his children. We see that he makes no
great progress spiritually. We don’t read of anything he
accomplished for the Lord, and, in the end, he
loses everything, right, his home, part of his family, everything. He’s in a cave living
with his two daughters. And then, they become pregnant by him to at least keep the family line going. So these chapters demonstrated that our lifelong
relationship of faith with God includes not only Him forgiving us, and being patient with our failures, it also includes faith,
and service, and trust, and progress as we move forward, right? As we move forward in our
faith and in our service, in our ability to
understand spiritual things, in our ability to overcome temptation. All right, so next couple of chapters, we continue the story of
Abraham’s walk with God, and it begins with failure. This is in chapter 20. So after the Lord and the
angels visited Abraham to tell him that Sarah would conceive. And then later they left
to go destroy Sodom. Abraham leaves for a
trip to the capital city of the land of the Philistines which is near the Egyptian border. Why he does this, he
doesn’t get any instructions from God to do this as far as we know. Maybe the destruction
of the cities near him caused some economic
hardships in the area, and he needed to open up new trade and other business dealings there. Eventually, he ends up living in this area because Abraham basically
is a nomad, right? He is a tent dweller, and so
it’s not the end of the world for him to pack up his tents
and move where the harvest, where there’s food, where
there’s adequate grazing land for his animals, and so on and so forth. So he moves to this area. He was a chief, a chieftain, and had to support a very large household, and so this may have been the reason and the nature of this trip. Anyways, in verses one and two, we read that he and Sarah
used the exact same lie that they told in Egypt way
back when for the same purpose. He’s afraid, because of her beauty, that she will be taken away from him. Now think about this for a second. She was 90 years old at the time, and in order to conceive,
God may have rejuvenated her that she might have been in danger. God gave Abraham and Sarah the
ability to conceive a child. Well, to conceive a child
requires to have sexual relations. To have sexual relations,
it requires desire, energy, and so on and so forth. So nothing says that God
did not rejuvenate them to be able to have this child. And as I mentioned in my last lesson, Abraham was able to have more children with another wife after Sarah died. Anyways, the story is
they used the same deceit in order to protect themselves. So we see that King Abimelech,
which, actually Abimelech, like a title, like a
pharaoh, this king took Sarah into his harem in order to be his wife. Now, it could have been because
there was sexual desire. It could also have been the
desire to form an alliance with a powerful chieftain like Abraham. I mean, they did this in those times. You would take someone’s
sister, or daughter, or some relative in order
to create family alliances, peace alliances, trade
alliances, so on and so forth. So that could have been
the reason as well. In the ensuing verses, we see
that God deals with Abimelech. And again, I’m not going to
read all the passages here, we have some other passages
that we want to read, I’ll just kind of tell you the story. First of all, God
inflicts a serious disease on Abimelech’s household and
possibly his entire nation where they couldn’t produce children. And then He prevents Abimelech himself from having sex with Sarah and warns him that if he does he’ll die. And then he tells him who Abraham is and tells him that if he releases Sarah, Abraham, who is a prophet,
will pray for him, and that prayer will restore the health to his household and his nation. Now, we also see what
Abimelech says to Abraham. First of all, he rebukes
Abraham for deceiving him and jeopardizing the safety of the nation. We don’t blame him there, right? He was a more righteous man
than Abraham was at that point. He also rebukes Sarah and tells her that the covering that
she needs is her husband, and that will be enough to protect her from the desire of other men. She doesn’t have to lie. He was a great chief. He had men, power, and so
on and so forth, prestige. He was an honorable man,
that she was his wife would have been enough
to protect her from him. And I think maybe Abimelech was saying, “What kind of man do you think I am “to take another man’s wife?” Again, we see in this scene
here the king was more righteous in his attitude here than was Abraham. And then finally, like the pharaoh, he gives Abraham money, and livestock, and the freedom to live
anywhere in his land. Abraham accepts all of
this in order, certainly, not to offend the king any further. So Abraham, for his part,
explains his conduct to the king, and then he accepts the
rebuke because of the lie and also accepts the gifts offered him. So this is the last chapter
containing information on Abraham before the birth of Isaac which begins a new period
in the life of Abraham. Last chapter. So now, let’s talk about
the child of promise. Let’s go to chapter 21, we will read in this particular
chapter in a few moments. Let me just set this up for you, Chapter 21 begins by describing the time of the birth of Isaac. The word of God stresses that he was born according to God’s promise. God had made this promise to Abraham, that he himself would have a son even though his wife
was barren, number one, and then, not only was she barren, she was way past
childbearing age as he was, but God made a promise, and
God fulfilled His promise. The fact that Abraham, as I said, was 100 years old and Sarah was 90 did not limit the promise. When God promises, He also enables. That’s an important thing. Sarah was able to nurse
her son for example. Abraham was able to conceive with her. And, as I mentioned, he had six other sons with his other wife
Keturah after Sarah died so God just didn’t give him his virility, his youthful virility,
just for one occasion in order to conceive Isaac. Apparently, he stayed
that way, healthy, virile, able to produce children
long after Sarah died. The point here of course
is that man’s weakness cannot stop the fulfillment
of God’s promise. As was the custom at the
time, when Isaac was weened, Abraham made a feast for his
household and the guests. So we’re going to look at
that part by reading, now picking up the reading in chapter 21 beginning in verse 9. It says, “Now Sarah saw the
son of Hagar the Egyptian, “whom she had borne to Abraham, mocking. “Therefore she said to
Abraham, “Drive out this maid “and her son, for the son of this maid “shall not be an heir with my son Isaac.” “The matter distressed Abraham greatly “because of his son. “But God said to Abraham,
“Do not be distressed “because of the lad and your maid; “whatever Sarah tells you, listen to her, “for through Isaac your
descendants will be named. “And of the son of the maid
I will make a nation also, “because he is your descendant.” “So Abraham rose early in the morning “and took bread and a skin of
water and gave them to Hagar, “putting them on her shoulder,
and gave her the boy, “and sent her away. “And she departed and wandered about “in the wilderness of Beersheba.” Now, I want you to note that
the old jealousy springs up, and once again Hagar is
sent away with her child. God promises to care for
the woman and the child, but the promise of the seed
was to come through Isaac. This is the key passage that is debated among Christian scholars
and Muslim scholars. Muslim scholars say, “Well,
the Bible has been corrupted, “and that’s not really what it says, “and the Koran is the
correction of the Bible.” But if you accept that
the Bible is not in error, that it has not been corrupted, what we have is, the Old
Testament that we have today, that we’re reading today is
in fact the Old Testament that they were reading 3,000 years ago, 500 years before Christ,
400 years before Christ, they were reading the same Old
Testament that we’re reading. The Jesus was referring
to the body of literature, the body of writing shall we say, not literature but writing,
the body of writing as the, we call it the Old Testament,
He would refer to it as the Word of God, the Scriptures. Well, He was referring to
the very same scriptures that we read when we
read the Old Testament. Muslims say, “No, no, something
originally was written, “but it has been corrupted, “and the Koran is the correction of that.” So just pointing to
that passage and saying, “Okay, we’re right,” doesn’t
end the argument with a Muslim because they don’t accept
the text that we are using. Anyways, but according to
Genesis, it’s very clear here that the promise, the seed of promise, is going to come through Isaac. And later on, as we continue
on through the Bible, God continually refers
to the seed of promise, when two, Jacob and Esau,
we know that it’s going to come through Jacob and not Esau. So there’s always a choice
between which individual the seed of promise
will be coming through. Note also that this is the
first time but not the last time that Abraham has to give
up a child that he loves. He loves his child, right? He loves his child, the first child born to him through Hagar. That’s his son, right? That’s his son but he
has to send him away, and we will know in the future that he will also have to sacrifice Isaac. So let’s keep reading verse 15, it says “When the water in the skin was used up, “she left the boy under one of the bushes. “Then she went and sat down opposite him, “about a bowshot away, for she said, “Do not let me see the boy die.” “And she sat opposite him, “and lifted up her voice and wept. “God heard the lad crying;
and the angel of God “called to Hagar from
heaven and said to her, “What is the matter with you, Hagar? “Do not fear, for God has heard “the voice of the lad where he is. “Arise, lift up the lad,
and hold him by the hand, “for I will make a great nation of him.” “Then God opened her eyes
and she saw a well of water; “and she went and filled
the skin with water “and gave the lad a drink. “God was with the lad, and he grew; “and he lived in the wilderness
and became an archer. “He lived in the wilderness of Paran, “and his mother took a wife for
him from the land of Egypt.” So she is put into the wilderness with only a little bit of food and water, perhaps so that she would
learn quickly to trust in God. Soon they are lost, and Hagar
cries out to God for help, and God provides a well and safety. In one verse, the Bible summarizes how Ishmael became a
hunter and how he married an Egyptian woman selected by, remember Hagar also was an Egyptian woman, she had been taken from
Egypt, she was Sarah’s maid so it’s normal that she
would go find a wife from her country Egypt. In Genesis 25, we find out
that Ishmael had 12 sons and became a great nation
just as God had promised. Now, there’s some interesting points about this particular section. First of all, the Muslim religion
traces its cultural source to Hagar and Ishmael
just like the Jewish one traces back to Isaac and Abraham. Some people ask, “Well,
I hear the word Muslim, “M-U-S-L-I-M and Moslem, “and what’s the difference here?” And the word Moslem is
the anglicized version of the word Muslim which
refers to a true believer. A Muslim is a true believer, a follower of the religion of Islam. And the term Islam means surrender, okay? So know that these are the individuals that the Muslim religion
finds its source in. Also the rivalry described
in this ancient text continues today, doesn’t it? We see that all the
time, as the Muslim world and the Jewish nation are
continually at odds and at war with one another, and Muslims
are at war with one another. There’s various religious
sects within Islam fighting each other to
the death for control. Most of that war is about determining who is the legitimate heir
of the authority of Mohammed. After he died, there began to be a dispute as to who would take on
his mantle of authority over the Muslim world. And that war between the Shiites
and the Sunnis, and so on, that continues to this day. Also the Muslim religion
has ceremonies done today that date back to this very event here, where she’s in the
desert, and she’s crying, and she goes back and forth. So the religion is set forth
in three kind of categories. There are the articles of faith which are the doctrinal creeds in the
Koran and the confession, the right type of conduct, moral conduct, how you should dress, how you should act, and also religious duty, their worship, their style of worship and
what they do for prayer, and so on and so forth, the
fact that they pray facing East five times a day, that they give alms, that they fast during the
Ramadan and so on and so forth. This constitutes their worship. So under the section of
religious duty of a Muslim is what’s called the pilgrimage. And so the pilgrimage is
that once in a lifetime, a Muslim or his representative, you can send a representative
for your family, a Muslim must go to the
holy shrine at Mecca for religious observances, for
a pilgrimage, going to Mecca. The shrine at Mecca, which is
located in Saudi Arabia today, is considered holy for two reasons. First of all, it is the place
where the Kaaba is kept. The Kaaba is a large square building covered by a black silk cloth. It’s about four stories
high and inside of it is a meteorite, actually a piece of rock, a meteorite that fell in the
region in the Middle Ages and was considered a
sacred sign from Allah, which is the Muslim name for God. And so this black stone is kissed or touched by the pilgrims as they proceed around the building in circular fashion. And you may have seen pictures of this where you have thousands of Muslims moving like waves around this Kaaba. It is also said to be near the place where Hagar was lost in
the desert with Ishmael who is the father of the Arab people. So part of the pilgrimage sees them kind of running between two hills and shaking their shoulders seven times in imitation of Hagar frantic
at being lost in the desert. So this along with prayers,
and teaching, and fasting, and alms giving make up their
religious pilgrimage to Mecca. Another interesting thing about this story is that it reveals to us another type. Remember what I said about types? A type is a person, or a place,
or a thing, or a situation that prepares us for a
person, or place, or thing, or situation that God
wants to reveal to us in complete truth. So I gave you many different types, Melchizedek was the type of priesthood for the priesthood that Christ would have. The ark, if you wish was
a type for the Church. Remember, I gave you those examples, the ark only had one, everyone
who was in the ark was saved, well, everyone who is
in the Church is saved. There was only one door
to enter into the ark, well there’s only one door
to enter into the Church and that’s Jesus Christ,
and so on and so forth. So I said that in the
Bible there are types. Well, this section here
presents us with another type. Hagar and her actions don’t
signify anything for us as Christians, but her
relationship with Sarah is a type for another more important and ongoing relationship and that is the conflicting relationship between the principle of law
and the principle of grace and the results of each. Each woman represents one of these ideas, Hagar representing the principle of law, and Sarah representing
the principle of grace. And you can keep your
finger there in Genesis 21, but we need to go over to
Galatians, chapter 4 in order to read about this idea of type for Hagar and for Sarah. So we’re going to go over
there, Galatians 4:21 and we’re going to read this passage. It says, “Tell me, you who
want to be under law, “do you not listen to the law? “For it is written that
Abraham had two sons, “one by the bondwoman,” that
bond woman would be Hagar, “and one by the free woman,” and that woman would be Sarah of course. “But the son by the bondwoman was born “according to the flesh, and
the son by the free woman “through the promise. “This is allegorically speaking, “for these women are two covenants: “one proceeding from Mount
Sinai bearing children “who are to be slaves; she is Hagar. “Now this Hagar is Mount Sinai in Arabia “and corresponds to the present Jerusalem, “for she is in slavery with her children. “But the Jerusalem above is
free; she is our mother. “For it is written, “Rejoice,
barren woman who does not bear; “Break forth and shout,
you who are not in labor; “For more numerous are the
children of the desolate “Than the one who has a husband.” “And you brethren, like Isaac,
are children of promise. “But as at that time he who was
born according to the flesh “persecuted him who was born
according to the Spirit, “so it is now also. “But what does the Scripture say? “Cast out the bondwoman and her son, “For the son of the bondwoman
shall not be an heir “with the son of the free woman. “So then, brethren, we are
not children of a bondwoman, “but of the free woman. And so, let’s kind of break this down now and see what Paul is saying
concerning Hagar and Sarah and how they are types. First of all, he talks about Hagar, and Hagar, he says, is a type for the law, and all of her descendants are those who follow the law, right? The Jews and the Muslims
and all who try to be saved by the principle of the law,
not just the Ten Commandments but by the idea of perfectionism, by the idea of obeying rules, by the idea of obeying a procedure, a worship style, a sacrifice style. All of these people are all
descendants of Hagar, he says. All right? Her descendants are born of the flesh in that they are great and numerous but not the ones through
whom the promise would come. They’re born naturally, right? Hagar was Abraham and Sarah’s way of trying to make the promise happen in a natural fleshly way, okay? When God wanted it to happen
in a supernatural way, when Sarah was beyond childbearing, when Abraham was beyond childbearing, you see what I’m saying? And she was not only beyond childbearing, but she had been barren her whole life. She couldn’t even have children even when she was a young woman. So Isaac is a product of a
supernatural, a miraculous, a gracious, a gift if you
wish to Abraham and Sarah. So going back to Hagar,
he says that her people try to justify themselves with the law. They’re the children of the law. And I want to tell you, if
you study the Muslim religion, you will see how legalistic it is. I mean, Paul refers to Jews
who try to justify themselves by the law, well, your Muslims
do exactly the same thing. You have to do the pilgrimage,
you have to do this, you have to pray every day, you know, there are things that
you must do, you know, things that you must do and
if you don’t do those things, you cannot live, you cannot
be saved if you wish. “Their natural earthly home,”
Paul says, “is Jerusalem” not only for the Muslims
but also for the Jews. Even today, the control of
the spot where the temple was, I mean, now there’s a mosque over this, the Dome of the Rock, you know, it’s over the spot where the
original Jewish temple was. And what’s going on? Everyday, you read in the
paper the war that’s going on between, I mean, do you realize how small a country Israel is? How small the Gaza strip is? And the West Bank? These are tiny little things. And what are they fighting over? They’re fighting over
who has a right to claim the city of Jerusalem
just as Paul said here 2000 years ago, all right,
their earthly home, Jerusalem. They began by persecuting
the children of the promise, Ishmael persecuting Isaac, and they continued to do
so throughout history. I mean take a look at what’s
happening to Christians in Iraq these days, Christians in Syria, Christians in these
Middle Eastern countries as they’re being attacked, and persecuted, and killed by Muslim extremists. And so they began as slaves,
the children of a slave woman, and they’re still slaves of sin today. They’re not slaves of people
but they’re still slaves of sin and ignorant of the Gospel
today in the same way. So that’s how Paul is describing them, and isn’t it uncanny how that description continues to fit quite
perfectly, if you wish, quite accurately even to this day? Then he talks about Sarah. And Sarah represents grace, and her descendants are those
who rely on faith and Christ to save them, no pilgrimage, no rules, no certain thing they have to worship, certain thing they have to
eat, and so on and so forth. Her descendants began
as a gracious promise that is fulfilled by God’s
power, not man’s nature. See the difference? Ishmael was born, you know, because of the normal sexual activity of Abraham and a woman who was
able to have children, okay? Nothing spectacular about that. Isaac was born in a
supernatural condition, under the grace of God. Her descendants, Sarah’s descendants, exist because God wanted His promise to be carried by her generation. He said, “The promise is
going to come through Isaac, “and I’m going to do whatever I have to do “to make the promise come through Isaac.” Her people are justified
because they believe in God, not because they obey
perfectly God’s laws. That’s the core
of Christian faith, right? Justification by faith,
not justification by law. The complete opposite of Islam. Their temple, the descendants of Sarah, their temple is their bodies,
and God dwells within them, not in a building. I don’t have to go to
Saudi Arabia to a ceremony to get in touch with God. The spirit of God dwells in me already and came to dwell in me on the
day of my baptism, Acts 2:38. They’ve also been persecuted
for being God’s children. Well the history, we know the history of Christianity. There’s been persecution. And also, they began as free, they continued to live as
totally free of condemnation and darkness because they’re
the children of light. So Hagar and Sarah’s relationship
and what happened to them in their lives and their descendants, these are a type again,
so important this idea, a type that demonstrates
the difference between the results of those
who live under the law and the results of those
who live under grace. So we’re going to continue in this passage, Verses 22 to 34, I’m not going to read that, but this section recounts
an agreement made between Abimelech, the king that
originally took his wife, and Abraham, remember that? We talked about that in a previous lesson. The king wants a kind of
a non-aggression treaty with Abraham, and Abraham
agrees with the condition that he have the right to
a disputed well’s site. And once this matter is settled, Abraham gives the king seven ewe lambs signifying the completeness
of their agreement and the ownership of the well. Abraham then names the place Beersheba which means Well of the
Oath or Well of the Seven. And he returns home, in the
land of the Philistines, and he will leave here one day, but only when Isaac is
grown up and Sarah is gone. So a couple of more
lessons that we can draw from our section today, the
section that we covered. Lesson number one is we’re
never too old to sin, are we? I had a professor
in college, Dr. Barrett, who at the time when I was in college was probably in his late 70s, and he once told the
class that the type of sin as you get older changes, but it’s always a problem
for a human being. So the sins of a man who is 20 and the sins of a man who is 75, not exactly the same sins,
but sin nevertheless, and sinfulness that
needs to be dealt with. Well, Abraham was 100 years old, but his habit of lying about
his wife to protect himself, this was well ingrained, and it caused him problems, even at this late date in his life. The key, of course, is to deal
with sinfulness right away and not think that
we’re going to grow too old to be subject to temptation
or to be subject to sin. Or that simple aging leads to holiness. Denying sinfulness
requires an effort no matter how old you are. Just because you’re old,
doesn’t mean you automatically are not subject to temptation. So you’re never too young to start, and you’re never too old to stop sinning. Number two lesson. Mountain tops always lead to valleys. Mountain tops lead to valleys. People, especially young people, think that life starts low, and it just gets better,
and better, and better, and better all the time. We just evolve better. And of course that’s the
evolutionary thinking that is ripe in our society today, but the truth is that we start
perfect and then we fall. And our pattern is up and down after that. This is especially true in Christian life. Mountain top experiences
are usually followed by valleys of darkness. I mean look at what we’ve just read in the last couple of chapters. Abraham had been visited by the Lord and angels in person,
then he saved his nephew a second time through his prayer. He had been rejuvenated to the point where he had a sex life again,
was active and productive. He was on top of the world, and
then he lied about his wife, an old lie, and his life
came crashing down, right? So this pattern happens in
the Church all the time. When things are going really great, there’s momentum, and
growth, and great enthusiasm, you can be sure, when that happens, you can be sure that
Satan is working overtime to divide the brethren or
bring sin into the camp to make things come crashing down. I’m always afraid when the
Church is going really well, things are moving along, we’re growing, people are getting along, you
know, and so on and so forth, I’m always very cautious
then for something to happen to start creating division
and anger among the brethren. So when you’re at the peak,
my advice is slow down and be cautious because
it’s easier to fall when you’re on the mountain top than when you’re in the valley. Another lesson that I have found from this particular
section is that His time, meaning God’s time, is
not always your time. Sometimes it is, but a lot of times, His timing is different than your time. God accomplished
everything for Abraham in exactly the time that
He said that He would. We need to understand that
since God is in charge of everything, even how long
or how much Satan can operate, He’s also in charge of time. It’s not only His time for
religious things or prayers, everything runs on His time. Not just church service 9:30, 10:30, Wednesday, seven, not just church service runs on His time, everything runs on His timetable, the rain, the good, the
evil, the beginning, the end, everything’s according
to the Lord’s timetable. Our job is to cultivate an
appreciation for His timetable and develop patience. Patience, God always knows
how long things will take and how long we have. We get impatient. Many good things about
other religions I guess, but there’s one good thing about Buddhism. Buddhism feels that the problem
with man is that he wants. He wants things, he’s restless, and much of the religion, much
of the practice in Buddhism is to dissipate this
restlessness within man and this wanting within man. Well, that’s not a bad idea. Within Christianity,
we search for the peace that surpasses understanding. Same idea, no more
restlessness, no more wanting, no more craving. It’s okay to want something,
it’s to crave it, okay? And I say all of this to say the following usually the reason for our restlessness is that we feel that
something should happen by a certain time, or we
don’t have enough time to do something, or we
don’t have enough time left, or this thing happened
too soon or too late. It’s always about time. The time about things usually is the thing that creates the pressure that
cranks up the stress, right? If we just understood that God knows the time for everything,
everything is under His control, if we just learned to
submit to His timetable, we would have a much less stressful life because He never forgets the time, and He never is late,
and He never wastes time, not His time or our time. And He’s always aware of
the time that we have left, so that’s a very comforting thought. So if we’ll become much more aware of how God is in charge of time, we will then become much less stressed if we realized that the world operates on God’s timetable and not ours. Certainly we as Christians, as believers, should embrace that idea much more than the world embraces that idea. In the world, they’re
trying to relegate the time. We, in the Christian world, are trying to submit to God’s timetable. Okay, well, we’re going to
stop there for this week. A little information about Sarah and Hagar as types for the grace of
God, on one side Sarah, and the process or the system of law, if you wish, on the other. All right, we’re going to continue next time. I’m glad that you were here, glad that those who are watching on video have selected the Genesis course to take. Hope it is edifying for you
and encouraging as well. All right, I’ll see you next time.
