Is God Evil? Analysing the Sacrifice of Isaac
The Akedah, the command by God to sacrifice Isaac. Is God good? Is God evil? How can we wrestle and understand this nigh impossible task?
Central to the Torah in Genesis 22, is God's Elohim's command to Abraham to sacrifice Isaac as a test of Abraham's faith. Many thinkers have wrestled with this idea, ranging from Kant, to Kierkegaard, and to Joshua Yen himself.
In this episode, me and Laurance analyse Genesis 22, what it means and how it is applicable to our understanding of God, faith, and morality.
