That which you mockingly allude to was a a type or prophetic drama of mankind's redemption via Jesus' sacrifice. The sacrifice of Isaac was not carried out because it was never intended to be carried out. Furthermore Abraham knew that God had promised mankind would be blessed via Isaac. He knew God would keep his promise and was sure that Isaac's immediate resurrection was guaranteed as Paul points out in his letter to the Hebrews.

Quote:
Heb 11:17
17By faith Abraham, when he was tested, offered up Isaac, and he who had received the promises was offering up his only begotten son; 18it was he to whom it was said, “In Isaac your descendants shall be called 19He considered that God is able to raise people even from the dead, from which he also received him back as a type.

You, too? I thought it was just me!

If there is a God, I'm pretty sure he has a sense of humor!

So if God authored the Bible, did he approve of dashing babies on rocks? Or did he just inspire the author to talk about his experience dashing babies on rocks?

I have found that most religious forums have mods with itchy fingers. I have been two or three different names at multible sites, each of them e-killed. Permabanned. RIP

Unfortunately, it seems one of the commandments of religious forums is 'thou shalt not dissent.'

Perhaps you will find the following article helpful. Here is part of it.

Quote:
excerpt

But this bringing into balance is something that can only be fully understood by a person who has been in this sort of situation. This isn’t the cursings and railings of a merely upset person but it is the begging for judgment for the wrong done. The Jews in Auschwitz, peering out at falling ash demanding that there is an equivocation: that the same is done to their captors. The Russians starving behind a siege: demanding that the same occurs to those holding the siege.
This is the petition of a human being, the image of God, who has suffered the very worst at the hands of another Imago Dei bearer: there must be a balance or else the very fabric of God’s order becomes unhinged.
Psalms 137: Dash the Babies?

Nowhere are Christians told to harass or physically assault homosexuals or anyone else who chooses to live in an unchristian manner. The only obligation a Christian has is to tell others about Christ's Ransom sacrifice and its requirements and leave the decision of acceptance or rejection to each individual.

Anything beyond that which involves physical attacks and harassments is definitely not scripturally approved. In fact,physically attacking or harassing homosexuals can cause Christian to lose God's approval and place his salvation in jeapardy since it involves the hubris of going beyond what we are told to do.

1 Corinthians 4:6
"Do not go beyond what is written
