Genesis 8:20-22 - God's Curious Remark
By Elaine - 7 Jan 2013
In Reference to: Commentary by Frank L. Hoffman
There is no record there that God asked for a sacrifice... It seems to be man's nature to want to kill things to appease God and perhaps they brought that over from their pagan culture. We'll know the answers to these interesting questions one day!
It sure seems very odd to be happy and grateful and to express that, kill a bunch of innocent animals! Its senseless.... And until after that time, God had not given Noah permission to eat the animals, so I don't think he wanted a steak dinner....
There is something deeper here.
