@metalhannes - trusting god? That is the lesson here? It boggles the mind how ridiculous you theists can be. What kind of a warped lesson in trust is that?? A normal person would conculde that this God is apyschopathic, not take it as a a great lesson learned that you should trust god. So very retarded. The bible is just a bunch of old tales. Oh forget it, whats the point in arguing with you ppl

I agree Angilion it has nothing to do with mercy.

In my opinion the passage is about trusting god.
Like leaping of a ledge and have your father catch you.

But be careful with comparisons to the modern age. I think it`s appropiate here, but I`ve seen atheists make this mistake very often. They just took a scene and compared it to something modern. Often the historical context is important. E.g. The passage where paul says that women should not speak in the church.

[quote]It`s a cool moment from the old testament where God shows his follower that devotion will be repaid with mercy.[/quote]

You have a very warped view of mercy. Letting someone off your psychotic demands because they obey you utterly is not mercy.

Imagine some gang leader demanded you show your utter obedience to him by ritually murdering your son, who you love. When you have tricked your son into going to the murder site, tied him to the sacrificial altar and you have the sacrificial knife ready to murder him, the gang leader turns up and says "You don`t have to kill him, you`ve shown that your fear me and will obey me utterly".

Would you thank this psycho nutjob for their mercy?

Cool? Mercy? drat me. I`ve heard some weird poo from theists, but describing such a gut-wrenching psycho scene as cool and an expression of mercy is way out there.

See, God had asked Abraham to sacrifice his son Isaac to him. Right before Abraham complied, God gave him a ram, caught in the bushes nearby, for Abraham to sacrifice instead. It`s a cool moment from the old testament where God shows his follower that devotion will be repaid with mercy.

Kind of hard to sum it up in a snappy church name, though. :/

Uhmm, i believe this refers to the biblical story of Abraham and Isaac. Still, They could`ve picked a name that would`ve been less likely to be misconstrued.
