Today, points are shared on the death of Jesus at the cross as a divine, not human, sacrifice.  One of the many fighters at “Yahoo! Answers” using the ID “Anonymous” (no profile information shared) posted the following:

 

Why is human sacrifice acceptable in the case of Christ but is seen as an abomination and heathen/pagan act all through the old testament?

Update:  It seems that his life was not as strong and powerful as his death, and that raises a lot of suspicions for me

Update 2:  Anasan= don’t you think the Jews were shedding enough blood by being killed on a daily basis but you think they somehow needed Jesus’s imperfect blood. The Jews could have kept killing 2 goats a year for atonement (that was fine) but it makes no sense that God would send himself, say it’s his son, see all of this trouble and then plan his death through a planned suicide. That’s not even a sound message.

Update 3:  anonymous he died alright, went to hell (christians like to say the grave but that’s not ever how it’s translated) came back to earth and ascended into heaven as the story goes. I swear you guys get more ignorant of this story by the day.

Update 4:  Scott-= why dont you tell that to paul who said him and God were one just like jesus and when he asked in Romans 9:20 Nay but, O man, who are you that replies against God? Like if Paul was God.
Then he afterwards tells people that God makes some people trash and some people fit for him, so how do you find converts while using this message.

Update 5:  Every person who edited the bible and added to the bible is playing god,,,friend

Update 6:  Jesus must be a Canaanite

 

THE GOLDEN ARROW:  Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light:  Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son:  In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins:  Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature:  For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him:  And he is before all things, and by him all things consist.  And he is the head of the body, the church:  who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence.  For it pleased the Father that in him should all fulness dwell;  And, having made peace through the blood of his cross, by him to reconcile all things unto himself; by him, I say, whether they be things in earth, or things in heaven.  (Colossians 1:  12-20, KJV)

“Anonymous”, followers of Christ are to trust that, through operations of the Holy Spirit, blood, correction, and truth from the cross are flowing to here and now.  The death of Jesus Christ upon the cross is endowed with meaning, power, and value within a framework of “imparted faith” (as opposed to one of time and space), where faith is a non-material spirit substance from the makeup of Deity with other inseparable spirit content such as holiness, longsuffering, love, “person”, “presence”, righteousness, wisdom, and wrath against sin.  For many, the “sacrifice” of Christ as the chosen Lamb of GOD is being examined only by using finite human language and terms for understanding that are carnal, earthy, and social.  Human sacrifice has only been required where there has been idolatry, occultism, false worship, and response to demons and devils.  For mature Christian believers, however, the crucifixion of Jesus is a “sacred event” wherein the fullness of GOD (we say, the GODhead) appears in the form of flesh (Incarnation) to complete divine operations begun before the foundations of earth and heaven.  The range and scope, therefore, of the Savior’s life, death, resurrection, and ascension go beyond the ceremonies, demonstrations and practices provided as foreshadowing and oracles to the Jews.  Those caught up in the operations of sin that appear as natural, normal, and routine fail to realize that sin is contrary to all existence.  Lacking discernment that emerges through ones spirit nature, sin is not recognized as foreign, strange, and unrelated.  It is no contradiction to men of faith that GOD, who is Almighty and the origin of all, may pass through death that is not “almighty”, and may not be the end of all.  Consider how this is stated using language from the Bible:

(1.)  1st Corinthians 12:  3, King James Version (KJV):  3 Wherefore I give you to understand, that no man speaking by the Spirit of God calleth Jesus accursed:  and that no man can say that Jesus is the Lord, but by the Holy Ghost.

(2.)  1st John 2:  27, KJV:  27 But the anointing which ye have received of him abideth in you, and ye need not that any man teach you: but as the same anointing teacheth you of all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide in him.

(3.)  John 3:  31-34, KJV:  31 He that cometh from above is above all:  he that is of the earth is earthly, and speaketh of the earth:  he that cometh from heaven is above all.  32 And what he hath seen and heard, that he testifieth; and no man receiveth his testimony.  33 He that hath received his testimony hath set to his seal that God is true.  34 For he whom God hath sent speaketh the words of God:  for God giveth not the Spirit by measure unto him.

There is far more to be said, understood, and spiritually taken in.  (For example, (4.)  Romans 8:  5-9, KJV:  5 For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit.  6 For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.  7 Because the carnal mind is enmity against God:  for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be.  8 So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God.  9 But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his.)  Even so, I trust this fragment will be useful.  Be it unto you according to your faith.
