Foundations: Faith of Abraham
I know I sound like a stuck record when I say these messages are profound, but this one really struck a chord with me. We go into the faith of Abraham and how righteousness is accounted to him by faith and not by works of the law. Not even by circumcision which came as an instruction later. If you need some ammo against legalism, whether it’s the legalism of another, or the legalism within our own hearts – this message will work well in that.

Background: Marcel John is an itinerant teacher of the Word of God who lives in Johannesburg, South Africa. These short messages were given on an AM frequency between 2003 and 2005 to a largely Muslim audience in North Africa, Middle East and even Asia. There was never any feedback because no addresses or numbers were given out, those involved simply prayed and trusted that these words would reach open hearts all over those regions. The main emphasis of these teachings is on matters Muslims don’t believe in like the deity, death, resurrection and mediatorship of Christ and now we felt led to make them available to whoever wants a solid foundational understanding of Christianity.
