    that was a test.  Remember what he did to Abraham?  Crikey.  Judges & Deuteronomy are filled with Prince-of-Peace tests.

      According to the biblical story, God commands Abraham to offer his son Isaac as a sacrifice. (Genesis 22:5 and 22:8). After Isaac is bound to an altar, the angel of God stops Abraham at the last minute, saying "now I know you fear God." At this point Abraham sees a ram caught in some nearby bushes and sacrifices the ram instead of Isaac.

        So God wants Abraham to snuff his own kid in a show of fealty?  And wtf did the poor ram do to deserve getting his throat slit anyway, other than be in the wrong place at the wrong time.
