“Would you go and agree to sacrifice your son as God requested of Abraham? I don’t care if God makes this demand of faith from me. The answer is hell no.”
Why “no?” Because it is simply your emotional, natural instinct to pass on your genes?
Because I wouldn’t harm another person without knowing a good reason for it.
We have reason and rationale and I suspect we are meant to use it. I don’t think a person should blindly follow others regardless of who that person is. How you choose to act or not act is your responsibility. You can’t blame it on someone else.
Adam blamed Eve, Eve blamed the Serpent. We make mistakes that’s human. Not taking responsibility for the mistakes we make, that’s sin.
Killing someone without knowing a good reason for it… That’s a mistake. Killing someone knowing it is wrong, that’s evil.
