Why don't you use Scripture to support your view? You cannot. You are ignorant of God's word. You're just another goat/tare heading for the eternal fire.
Matthew 7:1-6 (King James Version)

"1 Judge not, that ye be not judged.

2 For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again."

I am not in the habit of using scriptures that can be twisted by people such as yourself to prove anything. I have already pointed out to you this scripture which you WRONGLY claim does not apply to you.

You twist the bible to support your hate based religion and deny any scripture pointed out to you that conflicts with your psychotic god of hellfire.

wake up to reality!

That's from a book already proven to be inaccurate.

Good luck.

No, I didn't forget about 'animal sacrifice' God commanded of the Israelites. He didn't command 'human sacrifices'. And if Israelites did do human sacrifices, it was of their own doing, not a commandment.
And Jesus was never literal about drinking his blood and eating his flesh. Because if he was literal about it, he couldn't have been resurrected because his disciples would have been drinking the blood they bled from his dead body and they would have been eating it's flesh for sacraments. And when they ran out of his blood and flesh they would have had no way to carry out the commandment to drink his blood and eat his flesh as a substitute would never replace the real thing.
Jesus sacrificed himself by being a martyr for his beliefs. So call it a human sacrifice or whatever tunes your motor. The NT states he sacrificed his life for those that would believe in him. His dying a martyr does nothing for those that don't believe.
So as I stated, calling his death a human sacrifice would be applicable if those killing him, were killing him to sacrifice him as a human sacrifice for some god or religious cause.
He was killed as a criminal, not as a human sacrifice. So spin it all you want :)
Transubstantiation.... check into it.

Without jesus' sacrifice, there can be no christianity.

Marriage is a covenant between a MAN and a WOMAN. You are so brainwashed by gay commentators and gay supporters you are reprobate.
Yet; you are looking squarely at the marriage covenant between two men in the Bible

Must be something about Americans then because Canada has had gay marriage for almost a decade now and it hasn't really caused a lot of disruption to the churches up here. Then again, we don't have nearly the number of fundamentalist rejects that the US seems to have either.
That's not a shot at America btw, simply an observation.
I couldn't agree more.

Us too, in Massachusetts. No churches have been compelled in any way to do anything different. They're still butt-hurt about letting the darkies take our women as their wives and not allowing racial discrimination in churches for weddings. Of course, the same people think it's cool that the federal government forced the Mormon church to change its doctrines to allow Utah to become a state. Hypocrisy, thy name is religion.

Won't have to 'verify' it. Everyone will know.

Matthew 25 (NKJV)
31 "When the Son of Man comes in His glory, and all the holy angels with Him, then He will sit on the throne of His glory. 32 All the nations will be gathered before Him, and He will separate them one from another, as a shepherd divides his sheep from the goats. 33 And He will set the sheep on His right hand, but the goats on the left. 34 Then the King will say to those on His right hand,'Come, you blessed of My Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world:
41 Then He will also say to those on the left hand,'Depart from Me, you cursed, into the everlasting fire prepared for the devil and his angels:
46 And these will go away into everlasting punishment, but the righteous into eternal life."

America could learn a lot about tolerance and freedom from Canada. Far too many Americans still live in the dark ages.

45 And if your foot causes you to sin, cut it off. It is better for you to enter life lame, rather than having two feet, to be cast into hell, into the fire that shall never be quenched--
