If God DIRECTLY told you to kill your first child and you knew it was Him, would you do it?


Re-phrasing a question that I asked previously that HP deemed substandard. Most of the answers were judging the pastor, but that is not what I asked. I asked HOW would you do it?

    You cannot say who God is when it's God. Just like you cannot dehumanize someone just because they're of a minority race. It's just an example, but if God is omniscient, then He knows better than you and thus, you MUST follow what HE says. He knows.

    Wow, so personal. So you do not believe in God's command then, I am assuming and that your way is better?

    How do you know? You're subjectively categorizing God. That's illogical. God is an objective concept. Hypothetically IF God asked you, would you?You don't have to run away from the question just 'cause it's scary thinking about it. It's not happening

    Oh that would be putting a human ideal on the God who knows everything..even your first thought and your last one and if you obey him with blind faith or not.

    It does make people think. There are many people that obey their clergy with no doubts...today. That is what got me to ask this question. It doesn't take much to get people to do what you want them to do in the church. Scary!

    I am sorry for your lose, but when one dies and it is in the eyes of God, then they should be in a better place with God....correct? If God gave them to you then he must have wanted them back for a reason, true?

    Lela..I'm outta here. IMHO, this is not about believers or atheists. I see selfish motives on Debra's part. Asking this explosive question, fishing for HER OWN specific answer. I'm in utter shock & disgust. Someone let the patients out again!!

    tsad..I certainly HOPE Debra appreciates your explicit explanation re: Abraham. If she doesn't she SHOULD! Other than those who have said "NO WAY!" can thank themselves for WHY Christians are considered looney tunes. I'm leaving. Debra plays games.

    So you choose to go against God's command?

    I agree and others did not pick up on that either that Abraham trusted the God that he knew and did so witout hesitation. It was evil to do so from God in the first place. He has tested even the first 2 creation of his. Make you think.

    A burnt offering is to cook something until it is charred dead and unedible. Who said anything about Jesus? What does ur scripture have to do with my question..nothing! You are barking up the wrong tree here. Thx for speaking ur miind and others2
