Genesis 22

Say you hear a voice in your head asking you to kill your pet (not your son or daughter), would you do that? If you do, what do you think would happen to you?

In this chapter, god wants Abraham to offer his son Isaac as a burnt offering.

What I can add is the following;
1. This is really an immature and cruel god. Even if it were only for testing Abraham, the trauma that went through Isaac was totally ignored.
2. When Isaac was clever enough to ask his father where was the lamb for the offering, Abraham lied. Is that acceptable for Christians to lie?
