“Allah is a very beautiful word for God. Shouldn't we all say that from now on we will name God Allah? [...] What does God care what we call him?”

Jesus also said at the same time he would be resurrected on the Mount of Olives. That was before all the myths were written down about the rapture and tribulation etc. The whole purpose of the resurrection is to conquer death. Your god is dead.

You obviously don't understand the Torah if you think that the Torah's rules for you are that you only have to make one sacrifice and then you are sinless.

One animal does not atone for all sins of one person, nor of the community of Israel.

Are you a levite?

You are completely absurd in thinking, that's for sure.

rabbee: your opininion does not even, constitute the truth of a lesser g-d.

and i would not be so sure that either, i or TheG-D WHO is giving TheTorah to us right now is dead. and spitten co-brats should avoid, spitting into a strong wind. as the rumors about my death, have been greatly exaggerated. having our flesh put to death, did not kill us both.

rabbee: yeah right, G-D'S only begottn Son, does not understand TheTorah and G-D better than you, with hasatan the more brilliant.

well i think christians, call me jesus christ. but that is not really my name, according to real scripture. they can't even get the name, of their alleged messiah right. just like it says, in their book of Revelation, they don't believe either.

it even roughly tells them about my first visit with G-D, as the small male child for about half an hour.

How can the sacrifice of one animal -or more- atone for any sin at all, when it is HUMANS who sin, not animals, but more fundamentally, why would G-d require it, especially in light of the fact that the Jewish Temple and altar of sacrifice haven't existed for some 2000 years. That's a LOT of accumulated Jewish sin that has gone un-expiated by dead animals, not to mention the sins of every other stinking human being who has lived and died since then whose sin, well, who cares about these "UNCHOSEN" folks, eh?

The same time G-d decreed that keeping the Sabbath NO LONGER MATTERED.

When was that, or are you being sarcastic/cyncical? My question was an honest one, whether or not you choose to believe it. As for me, I see no value in animal sacrifices for human sin. Your G-d knows better, I suppose. After all, you G-d ordered it, but hey, no Temple or altar, so what's up.........?

Eric,

I'm NOT Jewish, so I only have to jump through a relatively few hoops to satisfy your G-d. Too bad for you, but what's the payoff? A shinier crown? Better tillage? No pancreatic cancer?

My G-d? How is my G-d any different than yours?

I'm not exactly sure. At this moment I am trying to figure out what is true and what is false, and I can tell you that it seems to me to be true that the idea that making animal sacrifices to expiate human sinfulness -ritual or actual- is not just false, but insultingly false, because animals bear no responsibility for human sins. Why make them bear the brunt of it?

No, telling me that G-d ordered it simply doesn't cut it with me.
