If you truly felt in your heart that God was giving you a command to kill an infant child, would you do it?
and please do not say "i know God would not give me such a command" because we know that's not true. We know that's not true because God has given such a command to others before and also because no one knows what God will do.
...So, would you do ANYTHING to be with God?

What people don't understand, is God can not go against his word, Isaac was God's chosen one to bring about Abraham's seed you have to fully understand Abraham and Sarah's story first. Isaac was God's promise and God was not about to take away that from Abraham and Abraham knew that. I don't fully understand why God asked that of Abraham. But Abraham knew God would intervene. God didn't ask him just to sacrifice any old child, He asked him to sacrifice the child that was promised to Abraham and was to bring about the many generations of Abraham's seed. Which Isaac could not do that if he was dead. There is so much more too that story than face value.
But to answer your question No I would not.
