    Keyverse 13:8 Jesus the same forever.We hold sound doctrine.Our heart established w/grace;not meats("works"),which do not profit.Those serving the tabernacle have no place at our altar.The blood of beasts was sprinkled in sanctuary, bodies burned w/o camp. Jesus sanctifies people with his blood suffered w/o gate. Let's bear His reproach w/o gate. We have no continuing city, but the heavenly one.

    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?
