I have reached the section on Abram's faith being counted as righteousness and here is where I got stuck.
According to Hughes, Abram was a moon worshipper but he believed in Yahweh when Yahweh called him.
I reckon I am looking from my perspective where the Word has been revealed to us and we believed, have faith and continue to seek understanding.
How was it for Abram? Is it as simple as God spoke and he believed?
Maybe I don't understand it as much because I grew up in a Christian family, I knew God from young and gradually grew in faith. And yes, I do not have one conversion date, which used to bother me a whole lot, but not anymore.
Maybe I can even liken my faith experience to the Israelites as being already the chosen people of God, but whose hearts still needed circumcision.
In that line of thinking, maybe Abram's faith is the model for the conversion of non-believers nowadays. With no background in the knowledge of God, God spoke to them, whether through friends or sermons or Scriptures or even dreams, they believe and have faith.
Simple faith and pureness of belief, and that faith is counted as righteousness through Jesus.
