Questioning Religion

As I stream in and out of different beliefs, concepts and questioning the truth I came across this very simple question of Bert Hellinger in the story about Abraham and I want to share this with you today.

Please note it-s my version, might not be 100% what the original said, but how I remember it.

A man has a dream in which God tells him to take his only beloved son, to bring him to the mountain and to sacrifice his life. The next day he looks at his son and at his wife. He takes his son and goes to the mountain, he ties his son up, gets everything ready to sacrifice him with a sword and then god speaks to him and sends him a sheep which he is then sacrificing instead.

The man goes home with his son.

Questions: How does the son look at his father? How does the wife look at her husband? How does the father look at his son? How does he look at his wife? How does he look at god? How does god look at him?

Story number two:

A man has a dream in which God tells him to take his only beloved son, to bring him to the mountain and to sacrifice his life. The man says : No

Questions: How does the son look at his father? How does the wife look at her husband? How does the father look at his son? How does he look at his wife? How does he look at god? How does god look at him?
