Discussion for Leviticus 5

  • Pat Hand
    In the O.T. the only way the Israelite's were able to atone for their sins was through the priest slaying a perfect animal from the sinners flock; and a poor man , it might be a dove or a pigeon. Today, the only way we can be saved is through the blood of Jesus our LORD and SAVIOR in baptism. We have to confess all of our sins to Jesus Christ and live God's way not the worlds way.

    I thank God so much for sending his beloved son to die for our sin. We just have to confess and we will be forgiven not like in the old testament sacrifice takes place. God love us so much and we have to love him with everything inside and out us.
