If God came to you and told you that you had to kill your child, would you do it?

Consider Abraham and Isaac - Abraham was ready to sacrifice Isaac, but God sent an angel to prevent the sacrifice, and then blessed Abraham greatly.

  • No. I'd bed him to take my life instead.

  • Many mentally disturbed people have killed, claiming God told them to do it. I would hope I'd have enough sound mind to seek medical help immediately.

  • How would I know it was God? Would he burst out of the clouds in a big show? I'd never kill my son because He told me to. He already took my daughter before she took her 1st breath. I won't give up my only surviving child.

  • Well, I am not particularly religious, but, if God came to me and told me to i would fall over in shock first and then I might go to a therapist
    Wouldn't kill my child though.

  • Hell no....but I know that would never happen as there is no god, IMO.

    Interesting to see what people are saying, as I"ve heard countless times people say "god is first in my family." Well, how about now?

  • I don't believe that God would ask that of anyone. Not the God I believe in. But if He told me to I'd definitely say no.
