in response to reader comment: brainwashed from head to toe

If I have learned nothing about the frailties of the human condition in my near six decades of experiences with other members of the human race, absolutely nothing of the mortal human endeavor is 'Concrete,' least of which is the musings of man on supernatural things.

It is a fact that Ishmael is an older son of Abraham; but not the son of the promise made regarding Isaac.

It is not a fact that Hagar is a 'legitimate' wife of Abraham; that if you are going to use double speak and give a Muslim's credence to a Biblical article of faith, you will realize that Sarah gave permission to Hagar to be a surrogate wife in defiance of the promise made by the LORD, which Hagar used to attempt to usurp Sarah's primacy as the first wife and primary designate of the promise regarding Isaac. Almighty God does not honor disobedience and Hagar's child is the son of disobedience.

Ishmael is given a promise to be a great nation, but not the same as the promise as the nation promised through Isaac. All of this is correctly determined through the Biblical imperatives that Isaac's heritage is Israel; and Israel is the nation of Almighty God's promise.

It is of great interest that you call the Hebrew Holy Scriptures 'corrupted' (your term, not mine); and yet you try using it to prove a Muslim range of thoughts- a completely contradictory situation. You either believe that imperatives of the Tanach are valid and dismiss the alternatives of the Quran; or you hold to your belief of the Quran and dismiss in disbelief the Biblical imperatives since it is obvious by your attempts that the two can never be reconciled.

The Islamic Prophet's name is not Hebrew: therefore it is highly unlikely it appears in the Torah.

Now you continue to impute hatred to the discipleship of Yeshua HaMashiach: but do you know why you must do that? You say you know why the 'west hate to the guts the Muslim,' but you have not explained the true basis, only referring to the everlasting enmity of Islam for things not Muslim.

Since Jesus Christ did sacrifice himself for humanity, who told you that Jesus Christ 'did not sacrifice himself for humanity?' Are you trying to call Jesus Christ a liar?

"Eli, Eli; why has thou forsaken me," is a quote from the Psalms, which, as was the obedience of Jesus Christ to all things righteous, a demonstration of the obedience we all need to have before the LORD: and you would question that?

Seriously, I am waiting with eager anticipation of the return of the Holy One of Israel, the Son of David, Son of Man: and who be able to withstand Him who calls Him a liar? For your sake, I would suggest you reconsider while there's time.
