I think the real horror of the story is that Abraham believes this is a god who would tell him to murder his child and he's still going to do it based on the assumption that "If God says it's right, then it's right", the very epitome of the Fundamentalist religious abdication of any real morality or attempt at moral thought.

The fact that "God" was just "funnin'" with him is beside the point. Abraham was willing to worship a god he thought really meant for him to do it. "God" was willing to put Abraham through such torture and, being omnipotent, already knew what Abraham would do. "God" didn't need the test. Abraham didn't need the test.

I guess I should have put "Abraham" in quotes too as he was no more real than "God".

I remember reading, years ago, a theory that the story of Abraham was a parable for the development of consciousness in humans, with God as the subconscious.

NineBerry wrote:Where does he get the idea from that the place of Isaac's near sacrifice is the same as the place of Jesus' crucifixion?

that's ludicrous, Isaac's sacrifice was held on Mt MOriah, where later stood the Temple, and now are the Dome of the Rock and al Aqsa... Jesus was crucified on golgotha, out of the walls of Jerusalem.
