  1. Approximately 4000 years ago, God made an unconditional covenant of grace to bless the offspring of Abraham, and the historical outworking of that blessing now includes Judaism, Christianity, and Islam … each of which acknowledges God’s promise … each of which God in His providence allows to exist, albeit with differing ministries.

    Recognizing that God is free to elect whomever He wills, and that redemptive history shows He works out His promises in unexpected ways, have we not lost perspective of the overall covenantal blessing to Abraham when we claim some form of exclusivity?
