This question is phrased a bit aggressively, but let's give you an answer anyway. There's a few things that you have to remember to understand what is going on here. One is that Jesus is in fact God, and so when we talk about God sending his son, he is in a real sense sending himself. So everything that Jesus suffered is suffered in a real sense by God. ...

This section Scriptural proof in Sacrifice of the Mass | New Advent begins by noting that the Divine institution of the Mass can be established by bothe the Old and the New Testament. In 2.

There are two basic reasons why God accepted Abel's offering and not Cain's: The nature of the offerings themselves The the spirit in which the offerings were given 1. The nature of the offerings The problem with Cain's offering was not that it was a grain offering rather than an animal, or blood, offering. Grain and wine offerings were commanded by God ...

The account of Cain in Genesis 4:2-7: And she again bare his brother Abel. And Abel was a keeper of sheep, but Cain was a tiller of the ground. And in process of time it came to pass, that Cain brought of the fruit of the ground an offering unto the LORD. And Abel, he also brought of the firstlings of his flock and of the fat thereof. And the LORD had ...

The word sacrifice must be addressed. I see here that the perceived definition of sacrifice is being seen as a “blood sacrifice”. That is a shallow realization of what sacrifice is in light of how sacrifices are portrayed in common use in the Old Testament. Many sacrifices had nothing to do with blood. If we understand that sacrifice is a self-offering of ...

Genesis 2: 15-24 and Genesis 3: 1-24 tells the story of our beginning; And simply stated: The woman snared by the dazzling of jewels which was Satan's appearance and her child like-mind could not properly understand, the words she heard; She taking it to her husband and by his own desire accepted the words of the fallen immortal son, Satan, he created to ...

There has always been Sacrifices for Sin. The most perfect sacrifice with out blemish was used through out the old testament. The New Testament didn't start until Jesus's death. The Gospels are at the end of the Old Testament. Hebrews 10 states that the Old Testament Sacrifice's were not perfect; that's the reason the worshipers had to keep coming back every ...

Not anymore, God doesn't want your sacrifice because Jesus already done a great sacrifice for us in Calvary, our sacrifice for salvation is useless because we can't surpass what He did "He died and rose again the third day" (1 Corinthians 15:4). Remember one of the criminals crucified with Jesus (Luke 23:38-43) on how did he get the assurance of salvation ...

Numbers 21:8 records: The LORD said to Moses, "Make a snake and put it up on a pole; anyone who is bitten can look at it and live." and it seemed to work. I see no implied sacrifice here. (Verse 9 in the NIV clarifies that Moses MADE a BRONZE snake. So there was no death.)

God can forgive sin without sacrifice. Psalm 40:6 .....'Sacrifice and offering thou didst not desire; mine ears hast thou opened: burnt offering and sin offering hast thou not required." Jesus said that if we forgive those who trespass against us, our Father in heaven will forgive us. If we do not, then neither will our Father in heaven forgive us. (Matthew ...

It is clear to me that God can, has, and will forgive sin without sacrifice. Here are a few verses from the Psalms and Prophets that make this point: Ezekiel 18: 20 The soul that sinneth, it shall die. The son shall not bear the iniquity of the father, neither shall the father bear the iniquity of the son: the righteousness of the righteous shall be upon ...

I have found that the first part of Hebrews 10 addresses this question rather directly. We are all familiar with the Jewish sacrifices of the Old Testament and we understand that they were intended as a foreshadowing of the great and last sacrifice of the Savior. Here are the verses. 1 For the law having a shadow of good things to come, and not the ...

It would appear from the gospel stories that God can and does forgive without sacrifice. Rhoads, Dewey and Michie say in Mark as Story, page 113, Mark's Gospel portrays Jesus already pardoning sin during his life and authorising others to do the same. His death is not needed to make forgiveness possible, so Mark does not portray Jesus' death as a ...

2 CHRONICLES 7:14 "and My people who are called by My name humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, will forgive their sin and will heal their land." No need for Blood? What say you?

Hebrews 9:22 answers this question definitely: Indeed, under the law almost everything is purified with blood, and without the shedding of blood there is no forgiveness of sins. (ESV) The author of Hebrews goes on from this verse to say that the spiritual things needed to be purified with greater sacrifices than that of animals, and pointed to the ...
