About the Episode

The first humans lived in a paradise meant to be conflict-free, but it became “Paradise Lost.” Fallen angels and mankind roamed the earth before the flood, and their fall still affects world conflict. Descendants of Abraham, through Isaac (Jews) and Ishmael (Arabs), still vie with each other as the nations God promised they’d be.

Experience a breakthrough in understanding the importance of belief and surrender. Why is Abraham’s encounter with a priest of Salem important? As he trudged up Mount Moriah with his son to sacrifice to God, was his faith reasonable? Abraham’s offspring are as conflicted as Cain and Abel, so we should ask, “was the flood effective… or even necessary?”

We’ll spend time with these difficult questions, remembering the God who really does have the whole world in His hands.
