God’s Relationship with Humanity God’s love for humanity is shown throughout Genesis 22. In this specific chapter of the Bible, God tells Abraham to go and sacrifice his son on a mountain in Moriah. Upon first glance at this odd statement, different feelings toward God began to race across my mind. Is God cruel and evil? How can God ask Abraham to sacrifice his one and only son? Is God truly loving and caring as he was pictured to be? Throughout my reading I came upon some solid facts which help me solidify my view on God’s relationship with humanity. Based upon my analysis of Genesis 22, God’s relationship with humanity is very controlling but loving because of the way he wants all of humanity to fear and obey Him, be willing to give up all we have for Him, and have complete faith in Him. Genesis 22 shows how God wants Abraham to fear and obey Him through the things he tells Abraham to do. Abraham was instructed to take his one and only son and sacrifice him on a mountain in Moriah. Knowing Abraham’s character, Abraham immediately obeys God and gets ready to head out towards Moriah. As Abraham is about to sacrifice his son, God commands him to stop. God says, “Do not lay your hand on the boy or do anything to him, for now I know that you fear God…” (Gen. 12). God’s controlling nature is shown as he says this to Abraham. God expected Abraham to fear Him so Abraham would obey God’s every word.
