Why Did God Ask Abraham To Sacrifice His Son?
- Edward C. Miller
Innumerable times, and for a variety of different reasons, people have pondered the question of why God instructed Abraham to kill his own son by offering him up on the altar. It is a widely held belief that Abraham was put to the ultimate test of his faith, will, and commitment by God when the latter demanded a sacrifice from him.
Instead of depending on God, he had attempted to have children via his own efforts.God put Abraham to the test to determine whether or not he had faith in him by asking him to kill his son Isaac.And he did: Abraham’s confidence in God was so strong that he was willing to give God his only son, hoping that God could bring him back from the grave.
