"Abrahamic Faith"

8 Tamuz 5775

In our prayers, we refer to Hashem as the "G-d of Avraham" because he was the one who merited to father a holy nation. Then we go further and say "G-d of Yitzchak" lest Yishmael also lay claim to this status and then we go further still and say "G-d of Ya'aqov" lest Eisav lay claim as well. Only the offspring of Avraham, Yitzchak and Ya'aqov are the chosen holy nation. We must be very careful of those who want to take it all back to Avraham Avinu, leaving out Yitzchak and Ya'aqov, so as to bring the children of Yishmael and Eisav into the same family with Bnei Yisrael.

Jewish Interfaith Endeavors: Abrahamic Dialogue

Since September 11, 2001, there has been an increased interest in Muslim religious dialogue among Jews and Christians, leading to what many identify as Abrahamic dialogue. This project employs Abraham as a figure that unites all three faiths. Whether the groups address him in conversation or invoke him only in name, Abraham becomes the symbolic father, the common denominator of monotheism.

This is the basis upon which they are building the One World Religion. Anyone who doesn't go along is to be purged, but instead Hashem will "purge" them!

Beware of any rabbi teaching it or using such terminology.
