One of the more common methods atheists use to attack the Christian God is on moral grounds. They’ll point to the moral repugnance and barbarity of some of God’s actions as described in the Bible. To pick a few of the more salient examples:

· God demands that Abraham sacrifice his only son, Isaac, as a test of Abraham’s devotion to him. Then, once Abraham is on the point of performing the sacrifice, God calls the whole thing off.
