The Rescue

Way back when the narrative about Abram and Lot begins in Genesis 12,  Abram is called by God and this interesting piece of information is inserted.  God says, “Abram, through you all the families of the earth will be blessed.”  Note that God does NOT say, “Through you, only those people who are your DNA matches on will be saved.  No, God has in mind to bless ALL the families of the earth.  It’s counter-intuitive.  And it’s easily forgotten, which is why 80+% of Christians in this country condone racism and xenophobia.
