    “Contradictions do not exist. Whenever you think that you are facing a contradiction, check your premises. You will find that one of them is wrong.”
    ~ Atlas Shrugged, by Ayn Rand

    “It is impossible that the same thing belong and not belong to the same thing at the same time and in the same respect.”
    ~ Aristotle, the Law of Non-Contradiction

    This is because Abraham justified God by faith in Genesis 15, i.e. although God had not yet kept the promise to multiply his seed, Abraham counted/imputed it as if it were a kept promise thus counting God as iust/honest. But someone came along and badly paraphrased the passage to argue that God justified Abraham by faith alone. Was that Luther that did that? or was it Augustine? Makes no matter who it was because reading Genesis 15 in context with your brain turned on proves he was wrong.

      OT believers were born of God (born again) through believing the promises of God. The Promise was a covenant apart from the law, which came about 400 years later.
