Tao Bible - Genesis 22:2

And he said, Take now thy son, thine only son Isaac, whom thou lovest, and get thee into the land of Moriah; and offer him there for a burnt offering upon one of the mountains which I will tell thee of.
~ King James version ~

Tao neither rewards nor punishes, tempts nor tests.
~ possible Taoist alternative ~
In order to test Abraham's devotion, God orders him to sacrifice (murder) his own son, Isaac.

Tao asks nothing of us. We may believe in the Way or not. Tao remains all the same.
