Sacrificing Animals in Biblical Times
Comments by Frank and Mary Hoffman - 6 Mar 2006

Dear Susan:

Thank you for writing and for your questions.

Your questions about God and sacrifices are a concern of many people, and the way the Church glorifies the deaths of animals only compounds the problem.

In order to understand this situation, we need to first understand the difference between God's intent and His concessions which He allowed because of the human hardness of heart as a way of limiting human depravity in the hopes of turning people back to God. To get a better understand of this, you might want to read one of our sermons:
Living In The Will Rather Than The Concessions of God 

In reference to the Noah situation, there is a very interesting twist to God response. See: 

These should help get us started on answering your questions. We look forward to hearing your response.

In the Love of the Lord,

Frank and Mary
