Wisdom Of The Ages

(Written by Jack Kelley)
Recently, I was reminded of a video I had watched some years ago on the life of Abraham. First shown on one of the cable networks, it was surprisingly faithful to the Bible's account of Abraham's life.

The late Richard Harris portrayed Abraham as a man of great sensitivity, with a yearning to know God. Eventually he was successful, for the Bible describes him as God's friend (Isaiah 41:8). It does not tell us why Abraham sought God, or how he even knew there was a God. Although Abraham's early ancestors had obviously known of Him, the people of Abraham's time were not followers of this God. How did Abraham find out about Him?
