Would You Have Sacrificed Your Son?

The story of Abraham sacrificing Isaac is -- on the surface -- absurd. What kind of God would ask a human being to sacrifice their child, especially when later in the Bible, sacrificing your child to a "god" is one of the most heinous sins that people would ever commit? Fortunately, God stopped Abraham from going through with it, but the simple fact that Abraham was willing to do it says a lot about the depth of his faith. According to Hebrews 11, Abraham knew that God would raise Isaac back up in order to fulfill the other promise He had made to Abraham, which was to "bless all the nations" through Isaac. I wonder sometimes -- would I have had the same kind of faith in God to sacrifice my son as well?
