So if you can get all that then you will have the wisdom of the ages to act and receive grace from God
WHY do you think they need to know a promise.

THERE IS ONLY ONE INDICATOR of a person going to eternal life, and it does not require you to even know His name, to poke at an abused piece of scripture.

Scripture, for the record, says you learn what you need of God to be a Mature believer, from WORKS not bible study.

Here's an apropos example.

If your wife reads books on getting pregnant, when do you have the baby?

Tell me how you can read a book to her and get her pregnant without doing the deed, and you can talk to me about
knowledge
in any part of the faith...

Life changes require life works. It's an undeniable fact of God's creation.

I hope that helps.
IF you do not yet have faith, get up and do the works we were saved to do, and let HIM build your faith. It's simple.

WHY?

Other than petty petulance?

If I tell you how to NOT get glass in your feet, and you walk through it anyway, you had no faith, I gave you all the information you needed.

Lemme guess, if your sports teams don't win, you blame something.
If you make a mistake yo ublame something else....

It's never you???

FAITH results in works.

Abe had little faith, but bit by bit The Word visited with him and promise after promise was completed, and the faith grew each time.

Finally abraham was KNOWN FOR HIS FAITH, because of his actions.

You gotta take a step to move down the path.
