Romans 11:1-5 I Kings 19:10,18 ( In Elijah's day, out of all Israel God only counted 7,000 (a remnant) as his people. )     The saving of a remnant does not constitute abandoning his people.

Romans 4:3,9-12 Genesis 15:6 (Genesis 17)     Since Abram was uncircumcised in Genesis 15:6, he is the father of all who believe whether circumcised or not. Genesis 17 is the account of God giving the command of circumcision.
Romans 4:13-18 Genesis 17:6 Genesis 15:6     Since Abram's belief was prior to the giving of the Law, the blessings of Abraham's heirs are seperate from the Law.
