I just ran into a reference of Abraham being told by God to sacrifice his son, Isaac, and it got me to thinking.
If it'd been me, my response would've been, Really? Then I would have removed all symbols of that deity from my house and hired an exorcist to remove all traces of any energy left behind. And when the angel appeared and said, Just kidding! I'd've said, Haha, very funny, and slammed the door in their face.
Now that's extreme but it got me to wondering how far we, as pagans, will go to follow the "laws" of our beliefs in order to please/placate our deities.
Would any of you step outside your normal values if you truly believed your deity was telling you to? Or would you jump ship, like I said I would in my little farce?
Do we only hang with our deities because we think THEY think like us? Or are we true servants and should do as our God/desses bid?
