QUOTES:
Wm. Paul Young regarding Abraham Sacrificing Isaak
“…Abraham. Number one, don’t sacrifice children. I know that you’re stuck in this mindset, so here’s a goat… number two, if YOU need a sacrifice, I will provide Myself…It’s not a story that justifies the sacrificing of children, every religion wants to sacrifice children, this is about a God (revealing) ‘I’m not who you think I am.”

Below are some of the people Paul references who have influenced him and who he is reading now.
