Did Abel or Cain Offer a Lamb in Sacrifice to God?
Comments by Anthony Simmons - 20 Oct 2009

So let me get this straight. You guys don't like what the King James version of God's Word says so you think that the parts you don't like, such as the fact that Abel sacrificed an animal, must have been written by lying scribes. Those references to God clearly telling the Children of Israel to kill the Passover lamb, and Jesus giving people fish to eat MUST have been forgeries. C'mon, you guys can do better than that. You don't really expect reasonably intelligent people to buy this do you? I read the one where the guy talked about the animal skins that God gave Adam and Eve to cover their nakedness were made out of thin air. Really? If they were animal skins, didn't they have to come from an animal? To say that the skins were created out of thin air misses the whole point. Sin is an ugly thing. It demands death. In Old Testament times it required the death of animals as a temporary covering for sin. This gave God's people a picture of just how ugly sin is. When Jesus came and died, He was the perfect offering for sin. There is no further need for sacrifice. We just need faith in Him. And, yes Jesus could have created fish out of thin air, but they are still fish. He still gave them to people to eat. Either the King James Version of the Bible is God's Word or it isn't. You can't have it both ways. But if He inspired the writers, couldn't he have also inspired the translators? You can't just take out the parts you don't like or twist parts to make it say what you want it to say. You have to take it straight up.
