    I hate that animals had to be killed and sacrificed for sin. But I love that Jesus ended that practice when He offered up himself for all sin and sacrifice of animals were done away with.

    Frank, The reason we had to sacrifice animals is because WE sinned. It's not like God just wanted us to kill animals for his pleasure. Before Adam and Eve got us started on this journey Man cared for and had dominion over the animals and did not kill and eat them. It's called a sacrifice because you have to give up something. You have to feel the pain of giving up something to truly understand what sacrifice means. Imagine how God felt giving up his son to pain and suffering for a people who didn't even understand what he was doing for us all.

    This makes it so clear as to why clergy wear robes in the pulpit to this day. It's amazing how God was so clear to Moses in his instructions in how the robes and such should be made and who should make them. Then Moses translated all that information to the letter. Additionally, I'm not a big meat eater. So every time I read Exodus I'm less bothered by that.

    Randy...Keep in mind this is my opinion but I believe Israel was required to offer up the fat as an act of obedience and giving of the best part of the sacrifice to God. The blood of the sacrifice was the life and, I believe, represented the blood of Christ that would in time be a cover for our sins.

    Hello there my question is a serious one that nobody seems to want to explain fully ? What was the full potential of offering up the fat Ex.29 13 and other verses. I have heard it explained that the Israelites " liked " the fat being that it wasn 't good for them, God would have them offer it up to Him and Yes, it was a pleasing aroma to His highest Majesty. Can you confirm, or deny this thought or add to the hidden depth of offering up the fat. PLEASE, Thank You Sincerely.

    The fat and the best portions of meat from the best of the herds and flocks being sacrificed was simply this. If a friend were to come to your house to eat would you not offer your best to them? Well, God demanded a sacrifice be made to him by the Israelites to atone for their sins. In return God made a covenant with them that he would be their God and as long as they did this he would dwell with them. So they offered up their best as he commanded. It has nothing to do with dietary concerns.

    I am a Southern Baptist but I don t abstain from drinking wine Jesus changed water into wine at a wedding he drank wine with disciples at the Last Supper and Paul suggested to Timothy that he drink some wine to settle his stomach Paul also said that overseers should not be given to drunkenness and elders should not indulge in much wine I can understand the Baptists preaching abstinence to prevent addiction to alcohol but don t feel guilty about having a glass of wine at dinner at home or at a restaurant But it keeps me from accepting nomination to become an elder

    Charles, I have a question. I hope this doesn't offend as I too am from the South, but exactly why do Southern Baptists call themselves, Southern Baptists? I've never heard a Yankee say I'm a Northern Baptist? Are the Yankees ashamed to call themselves Northern Baptists? Or is there no such thing as a Northern Baptist? Are there Eastern and Western Baptists?
  • Bob Hilt - in Reply on Exodus 29
    I am also from the South. I was born in Ky. There were indeed Northern Baptists, they just do not seem to refer to themselves that way. So good question. They were a distinct group not affiliated with the southern baptists. I am not sure where or if the group exists today, but they existed in history. We studied a bit about them in Church history class around the time of the civil war.

    It's not about what we feel guilty or not about. God's word is full of bad examples of what alcohol does to a person or their situation.
  • Mary on Exodus 29
    It is a very rich text i pray for more revelation
    i wonder is now that i'm saved that i have a ready altar ?
    the preparation of the alter, the sacrifice are they all wrapped on what our saviour Jesus Christ did at calvary?
