ONE OF THE COMMANDMENTS OF GOD IS, “THOU SHALT NOT KILL” BUT GOD NEEDS HUMAN LIFE AS OFFERINGS. WERE THE EXECUTIONER OF HUMAN OFFERINGS AT THAT TIME EXEMPTED IN THE VIOLATION OF THAT COMMAND FROM GOD?
“Give me the offerings from your grain, your wine, and your olive oil when they are due. “Give me your first-born sons. (Exodus 22:29) Not even human beings who have been unconditionally dedicated may be bought back; they must be put to death. (Leviticus 27:29)
When they came to the place which God had told him about, Abraham built an altar and arranged the wood on it. He tied up his son and placed him on the altar, on top of the wood. Then he picked up the knife to kill him. (Genesis 22:9-10)
