You hear a voice that commands you to kill a member of your family in the name of the Lord, your God. You feel it deep in you that it is true, that the lord has utterly revealed Himself to you. There isn't a doubt in your heart. You feel that it couldn't possibly be the Devil putting a "trick" on you, because you've been God's devout believer for decades.
Having the knowledge [from the Bible]that the Hebrew god had condoned and promoted human sacrifice (for no given reason), and Yahweh is known for changing His mind (because He also works in mysterious ways), would you go through with it? Would you kill a member of your family in His name if He commanded you to? How far would you go for your god?
The following are passages from the Bible that support God as being in favor of human sacrifices:
Judges 11:29-40 NLT
1 Kings 13:1-2 NLT
Ezekiel 21:33-37 NAB
Put me down in the "No" column.
I will be watching to see who puts themselves in the 'Yes" column so some help for them can be ordered.

sure, given the chance i'd kill god
wait, what was the question again
God's already dead, DJ, that's why we want to be a little careful about listening to those odd voices in the night.

This is a bait thread (yes, i added that tag). The author hopes to lure in the unwary religionists so he can bash them. Everyone here knows that i am no friend of organized religion; nevertheless, i find this kind of exercise scurrilous. It is one thing to go after a religionist who has been a bully, but it is another thing altogether to try to manufacture occasions to beat up on people.
God is not dead, Joe. Jesus is dead.
And you are SO right, Setanta.
Get a life, Jason.
it's been done
the guy who decapitated his fellow bus passenger in canada claimed that the voice of god had instructed him to do so
Don't forget the goofy bitch in Texas . . .
Well . . . yeah . . . him, too . . .
So who else here would like to see a cage match between Jason Proudmore and BorntoWorship? Maybe we need a separate forum for such things.
Thunderdome: two men(?) enter one man(?) leaves
Woo hoo . . .
Wow, Boss . . . that would be a pissah, huh?
I'll bring the popcorn and we can pelt them with it through cage bars.
A front row seat at all the harp concerts and a pair of very big fluffy wings.
Would you kill for God?
Only if he used George Bush as his agent.

To the store for chocolate. I would eat most of it first though.
