Blood Sacrifice - this intense ritual has been around forever and still exists today in many parts of the world


blood sacrifice
  • There has always been cultures throughout history that have made sacrifice to their God Deities or idols. All in order to please them and to gain favor from them.
  • There were many times throughout the Bible that sacrificial offerings were made to God. In most cases a virgin lamb was used. You will note that in most animal sacrifices the animal is to be virgin. This is because it is pure. You will also note that God only found blood sacrifice pleasing.
  • We have the story of Cain and Abel where Abel used blood sacrifice and found the favor of God and Cain used vegetables and did not find favor with God so Cain got jealous and killed Abel.
  • We have Abraham in the Bible who was asked to sacrifice his firstborn  son to God. Replacing animal life for human life. But then God stopped him for he was only testing him.
  • Let's face it, the Bible is full of Blood Sacrifice and killing all in the name of God. Makes you wonder doesn't it?
  • We have the Aztecs who were very big on Human and animal sacrifice. It was an integral part of their Religion. They had many Blood thirsty Gods that needed to be pleased. As they saw it, the offering of blood through human sacrifice ensured the perpetuation of the universe. Spanish observers found the practice utterly revolting for Aztecs would take their victims... make them lay perfectly still while the High Priest took a stone knife and cut out their heart.
