    Sacrificing a human life is not the point here, as horrific as it is, and as abhorrent to the Lord as it is. I can think of only two or three other valid reasons why God would ask Abraham to sacrifice his only son whom he loved, as a burnt offering, only

    Part 2 - Genesis 22:1-11 - LORD, WHAT WERE YOU THINKING? There’s plenty of evidence of blatant disregard for human life today. Terrorism and suicide bombers? Capital punishment?
