    Irene, you have no cause to judge which sacrifice is just before God. At least their sacrifice is tangible. The Chistian may or may not offer anything. At any rate, God is a heart knower and is aware of what your offering is. You think your salvation is secure and you are forgiven just because of faith, that your belief is enough? You had better read the OT as well! Get the whole truth! Yes?
