Again, Isaac was to be offered up as a sacrifice and the Hebrew word for what was to be done to him is the same Hebrew word used for Jephthah's vow. So again Yahweh did command a child to be sacrificed, what another angel did is irrelevant to that fact. And again your personal apologetic spin on burnt offering doesn't change the meaning of the words. A burnt offering is a burnt offering and a vow made to Yahweh especially for a victory in war would require the vow to be kept regardless of niceties. You are on one hand trying to day the ancient Hebrews sinned and strayed from what Yahweh wanted but in the case of Jephthah are trying to claim he did everything right? Nonsense the bible clearly shows he was rash and hot headed.
Yahweh commanded his people stone their children to death for being disobedient. If such a thing was taught, which it obviously was you have to either say the people refused to follow the so called orders of your god 100% or you have to admit that at least some would have.
Regardless of they did or didn't we clearly see your god ordered children to be brutally and savagely killed.
I don't see why apologetics fight the passages about Jephthah's daughter so hard as they are obvious and clear. Your god murdered children all the time in the bible. From the flood, to infanticide in Egypt to sending bears to maul children for teasing a bald dude.
<quoted text>funny how i've clicked on everyone of your links.
you refuse to accept the parameters of a "burnt offering.
now you keep making a claim that children were stoned for disobeying their parents. however you #1 are wrong.#2 you can not explain to us the process required to even stone a child and #3 you can not find one instance where it is recorded that it actually happened.
