    Ya... I'm gonna pass on your cannibalism. Why does anyone think is the true nature of a creative consciousness?

    Why did Christ give his body and blood as a reminder of what He did on the Cross? Why didn't they just have a simple day of food and drink, day of celebration? What kind of God is this, that would send His own Son to die for the sins of the world? Unimaginable!

    He sent his son to die in our stead so we would have the right to eternal life. Also, God needed a mediator. No man goes to the Father but by me according to the Word of God. Jesus is our mediator. We can't get to God except we go through His Son. God gave his Son, the Son gave his life so that we could have the right to the tree of life. Jesus died so that many more wouldn't have to. But he didn't die an eternal death but he reins eternally.

    Ashley,

    There are definitely some strange things going on in the OT: God made Ezekiel eat human dung cakes.

    (Ezekiel 4:12) And thou shalt eat it as barley cakes, and thou shalt bake it with dung that cometh out of man, in their sight. Then says to make them with cow dung.

    vs 15 Then he said unto me, Lo, I have given thee cow's dung for man's dung, and thou shalt prepare thy bread therewith.

    God made Isaiah walk naked and barefoot for 3 years.

    (Isaiah 20:2-4)

    2 At the same time spake the Lord by Isaiah the son of Amoz, saying, Go and loose the sackcloth from off thy loins, and put off thy shoe from thy foot. And he did so, walking naked and barefoot.

    3 And the Lord said, Like as my servant Isaiah hath walked naked and barefoot three years for a sign and wonder upon Egypt and upon Ethiopia;

    4 So shall the king of Assyria lead away the Egyptians prisoners, and the Ethiopians captives, young and old, naked and barefoot, even with their buttocks uncovered, to the shame of Egypt.
