Re: Binding/Sacrifice of Isaac

Ok, I'll try an make a very long story very short: the old testament is full of crap, even for religious Christians. Nobody stones their daughter if she was raped but did not scream for help loud enough and I for one also enjoy eating shrimps even though they don't have scales.

Christianity is mostly focused on the new testament and takes the old one with a huge pinch of salt as a collection of old educational stories. Even religious Christians would not take every story there literally, but try to understand the essence of the teaching instead.

When it comes to Abraham: Well, there are simply way more important things to celebrate than that story...
