I’m not here to make anyone mad- but I do have a lot of questions…
Right now I have several questions relating to the test on Abraham’s faith:
My main problem with this scenario is that I think human sacrifice is wrong. When a parent has a child its one of the most amazing experiences in their life. They love that little person with their whole heart and soul and they anticipate that they will be able to watch that child grow into an adult and they will be there to raise and guide them. Any one, or any God that asked that person to kill their own child would be inflicting a terrible cruelty on that person and doing a terrible injustice against the child, both of whom did nothing wrong to deserve such a thing. If God took satisfaction in making a person kill their own child in order to prove a point or to satisfy a need to be loved and worshipped, that seems very wrong to me. That would not be a God who is inherently good, but one who is simply "right through might.’
The refreshing thing is, the biblical God never did require human sacrifice.
Why then, would Abraham have even believed that God was asking him to do such a thing? Couldn’t Satan have been tricking him?
If you heard a voice or had a vision that God was asking you to kill your own child, would you trust that it was really God?
If it was undoubtedly God himself, and he was right there asking you to, would you kill your own child?
