Both the Apostles, Paul and Peter refer to Isaiah’s admonition to the Israelites to heed God’s words (Isaiah 8:13-15). The Rock, often a reference to God Himself, is mentioned as a stumbling block and a cornerstone. For many years the cornerstone of our faith has been a stumbling block to the people of the Muslim world. How can we remove the stones that hinder their coming to faith? At the same time, do we place stumbling stones in the lives of others when we should be building on the chief cornerstone of Christ; building through heeding his word?
