If people could only USE THEIR BRAINS or their SENSE OF RATIONALITY, then the Binding of Issac would be the ONLY proof they need to realize that God. Is. A Monster.

What is the Moral of this story? Because God told him to NOT do it at the end, that somehow absolves him of this entire situation? It Doesn't! If anything; it makes God even MORE monstrous. Why? Well let's examine the entire situation.
1; the reason that God invented this little - ahem - "test" is because he's under the impression that no one on Earth should love anything - not their wives, or their children - more than they love him. Wow; kind of demanding for a guy we've never met.
2; He tells Abraham to test his faith in him...By binding his son to an Altar and sacrificing him...Wow; talk about the hypocrisy considering everything that Christians have done to the Pagans over the centuries. But here is a God whose ego is SO huge, the he demands that a man murder his own child in his name.
3; Abraham was a Sheep; plain and simple. He was MORE of a Sheep than what he tried to make Issac into. So naturally the sheep was going to do what was commanded of it, and he was actually going to KILL his own son, to what potentially amounts to a Voice he hears in his head. So finally God comes in and tells him, "No; don't do it. Your devotion to me has been proven. Your son may live."
I mentioned that this makes God MORE monstrous; it does, and here's why. It shows how little God values the Human Psyche. Can you imagine how traumatic it must be for both Issac and Abraham to have gone through that? Issac now has to live the rest of his life with the knowledge that his father was prepared to kill him on command. At this point; leaving him alive almost seems cruel. But does God care about their sanity and mental stability? Of course not.

You got the Title Wrong...This wasn't a Big Joke...it was a Game. This is all a Game to God; a Psychological Game, where God plays with Human Lives for his own amusement to stroke his own Ego. I stand by what I say, that this God is a Monster on the same level of Jigsaw from the Saw Movie Franchise.

This story shows that God doesn't value the Human Mind, and the book of Job shows that God doesn't value Human Life. He is incapable of feeling affection for anything but himself. He is a Liar, a Narcissist, and a Hypocrite.

It was normal at the time for a god to demand child sacrifice, so God was trying to show how "He" wasn't like those demons in masks at all.

You dickhead this was done as a test of loyalty and courage dont know it? Buy a brain...wait no all the brains

A test of Loyalty? Wow...
Huh; so let me ask you something. Why is it that a human asking someone to sacrifice their child as a test of loyalty is considered an abomination, but if God asks you to do it, its okay?

The problem with me asking YOU this question, is that I KNOW exactly what your answer is going to be. So go on Sheep...Let me hear it. C'mon Sheep; "Baaaaaaah." C'mon you little Lamb...Defend your Shepherd; C'mon, "Baah" at me. Defend your Shepherd like the lost sheep you are, when all of us who can THINK, realize that your Shepherd is leading you straight to the slaughter house...

I'm afraid this stuff was par for the course in that part of the world at the time, some of the local pagan nations did perform human & animal sacrifices to gods like Baal/Bel and the infamous Moloch.  One of the reasons the Romans felt superior to the Carthagians and their middle eastern kin was that they could point at their sacrifice of children

Yup. That's all. Just showing the "holy scriptures" for what they are, warts and all. Mostly warts. Ah fuck it. It's basically a big wart with some nice things said by Jesus that were actually said in much better ways at least five hundred years before by Confucius.

Thanks for the comment!

 The bible as a book should bother you. It makes my brain scream. Because...people believe this horseshit happened. I'm terrified of that fact. I both worry and wonder that there are three demographics in this country, based on polls, who actually know both their text and other religious text; and they are:

 1)Atheists

 2)Jews

 2)Mormons (or LDS if we're gong to accurate)


 I'm mortified that most people posturing to be Christians haven't a damn clue what that means. It means you believe in the old testament. Wholesale. Because if you don't believe in the bible or at least some piece of alleged Christian text-- be it the gospel of judas or mary or joseph or the book of enoch or the apocrypha---wholesale then your religions is man-made. If you do believe in the bible then you have to accept this lil' gem as doctrine, duet. 22:28-29 And Jesus never once--and I have read the bible very extensively---has never said that law was revoked. Never renounced human slavery and rape. Never said a single word against the bible's homophobia in Leviticus 18:23 or Leviticus 20:13. Neither did his apostles save for Paul, who claimed to be appointed by Jesus. He said plenty in Romans 1. He outright condemned homosexuality.


 And people listen to this illiterate garbage. A lot.

I've actually attempted to read the bible from cover to cover twice in my life.  (key word attempted, not succeeded)  First when I was a xtian and now more recently that I'm not.  The things I read melted my brain, especially the second time around.  I think I stopped b/c I couldn't take any more.  Plus the massive "plot holes" weren't helping much.

Agreed. We have to make light of things like this in order to bring some light to the fact that Our own friends and family believe this to be an absolutely true story of an absolutely righteous man. We have a daughter and if anyone, god or otherwise asked Us to sacrifice her for any reason, ESPECIALLY because the sicko just wants to know We'll do it for him if he asks, We would consider that person or entity Our enemy with no hope of changing Our mind. Ever. Come to think of it, that's how We feel about anyone or anything asking anyone to do that to their child. So fuck Jehovah, Yahweh, Elohim, Jesus or whatever it goes by these days. Judeo-Christianity as We know it today is rotten to its core and plagues Our existence from day to day.

Right. I was attempting humor, but can sadly be pretty socially awkward, to tell the truth. Our goal was to point out that Abraham certainly deserves that award, I think maybe the voice in his head deserves a shitty creator award. :CrazySatan:
