  1. The story you told about the guy who was willing for his child to die in order for revival to continue really resonated with me. I grew up in a extremely strict Pentecostal church and that sort of attitude was prevalent there. I also agree with your assessment of it. My question, though, is what we should do with the story of Abraham and Isaac. That story, particularly because of the way it is interpreted in revivalistic churches (I’m sure you know what I mean), underlies that attitude. We may say that it needs to be interpreted in light of Jesus – as a sort of foreshadowing of the cross – but the fact remains that the Bible says God commanded a man to kill his son as a test of loyalty. How is that different from the guy in your story?
