I have a question that up until now I have never even thought to question.

Over the years, whenever the subject of Ishmael comes up, I have heard many sermons that trace the lineage of Ishmael to Arabs and particularly to Muslims.
However, for the first time I can remember someone has challenged that notion, saying Hagar and Ishmael worshipped the true God, not some other god.

I did a quick search and that search seems to confirm what I was always told.
However, I thought I would check with the Highway to see if I could find any more information, before i dismiss the topic.

Any information would be appreciated.

Tom

I'm definite not very well read on this, but whether or not Hagar and Ishmael worshipped the true God does not mean that their descendants could not have became Arabs (Muslims). They were sent away so they did not belong to the lineage of Abraham and Isaac.

Thanks, I actually thought of that. However, if possible I want to be relatively sure before I would get myself involved in a conversation like that. If I get myself involved.;)

Did you ask for biblical support for the allegation? Speculation doesn't count. grin
