Let's reset. In that Biblical passage, when God addressed Abraham about Isaac, did He say "your only son, Isaac"?
I posted the scripture above for you to read and see, look through the previous post and you will see what it say.
I have read the scriptures many times and my conclusion is that God was confused to refer to Isaac as Abraham's ONLY son. It is right there in black and white.
It's you who's confuse, have you read what I posted in its entirety? As I stated before, that phrase don't literally mean Abraham bore one child only. It's speaking about the one child was currently in Abraham presence at that particular time. Lets say Ishmael was dead no longer with Abraham, could we use the same statement, "Take now thy son, thine only son Isaac" and would it have been a issue?
Nothing you posted can remove the fact that the passage erroneously suggested that Isaac was at that particular time Abraham's ONLY son. You can chase your tail how many different ways you feel necessary but none of those will alter the erroneous statement in the Bible. Enough about beating this dead horse. You lost that argument resoundingly. Now for the other matter you posted yesterday.
