Blood Sacrifices Not Mandatory & Certainly Not A Human Sacrifice

Blood animal sacrifices are not mandatory for atonement. Review the plethora of passages revealing a repentant heart will do just fine. Understand the various forms of payment (ie animals, flour, jewelry, incense, etc.) when a temple in Jerusalem exists, is based on affordability, offense, or circumstance to teach the accidental violator a lesson so as to not repeat their violation. Our court system today is based on this concept. Moreover, human sacrifice has always been forbidden (see Leviticus 18:21, 20:3; Deuteronomy 12:29-32; 18:10; 2 Kings 3:27, 16:3, 17:17; 2 Chronicles 28:3, 33:6; Jeremiah 7:31; Psalm 106:35-38; Ezekiel 16:20-21 as some examples) AND no human can die for another’s sins (see Deuteronomy 24:16; Ezekiel 18:1-32; 33:12-20; Jeremiah 31:29-30; Psalm 49:7). In other words, Jesus didn’t die for your sins. All you need is repentance.

When the author of Hebrews uses Psalm 40 to make the reader think a human sacrifice (Jesus) was required for atonement, he changed out what the Psalm actually says. In other words, the author lied. Intentionally deceived and still deceives unsuspecting readers. As Ronald Reagan said, “Trust but verify.” Look this stuff up for yourself.

Know Your Bible: Error In the Book of Hebrews

As a former Christian, all of the errors and misquotes I have found were while using my Christian Bible (old and new testaments). I did not go to some random special resource to discover this fraud. Look up these verses to see it for yourself in your own Bible.

Here in Hebrews 10 compared to Psalm 40 we can see several errors. Not only did the author intentionally replace God’s word, which it is a sin to add or subtract from Scripture (Deuteronomy 4:2; 12:32/13:1; Jeremiah 26:2), by subtracting the text “My ears you have opened” and replaced it with “But a body You have prepared for Me..” in attempts to deceive the unsuspecting reader into thinking Jesus’ body was the final sacrifice, but in addition to this blatant alteration of God’s Scripture, the author of Hebrews, presumably Paul, removed “You did not require” and replaced it with “you had no pleasure” to further his agenda.

As discussed in my article “Why Jesus Didn’t Die For Anyone’s Sins”, sin and trespass offerings can only transpire in the temple within Jerusalem, which no longer exists, nor existed at the time the psalm was penned; moreover, those offerings are designed to be a tangible lesson to learn God’s instructions of loving Him and others as they were exclusively for unintentional/accidental sins, not rebellion or intentional sin. When a temple is not present or should the offender be not in Jerusalem, sin and trespass offerings are not required for the remission of sins despite what Christian doctrines purport. We see in 1 Kings 8, King Solomon prays and declares that even when no temple is present or people are not in the land of Israel, God will forgive those who repent and return to His Torah. In other words, all God has ever wanted was for people to hear His documented voice, being His instructions on how to love God and others throughout the Torah; hence, the psalmist praise of “my ears you have opened”. God eagerly forgives those who repent and return to His instructions. As Scripture reveals and repeats in numerous places, all God wants is those with circumcised hearts, willing to listen, trust, and obey (see 1 Kings 8, Psalm 50, 51, 103, 119, Proverbs 3, Isaiah 1:16-17, and many more!). As if all of these intentional and deceptive misquotes weren’t bad enough, the author of Hebrews also left off a key element validating God’s Torah by removing the phrase, “And Your law is within my heart.”

Furthermore, we see in a future era, sin and trespass offerings, as well as other sacrifices, and all of Torah, will resume in God’s presence once the final temple is erected (see Ezekiel 40:38-43; 43:4-46:24; Zechariah 14:16+; Isaiah 56:6-8; Isaiah 2:3).

These errors are clearly intentional as the author of Hebrews is leading the reader to believe 1) A sin blood sacrifices were required (for atonement), 2) God doesn’t want ongoing sacrifices, but just one final sacrifice being Jesus now and 3) by leaving off Torah is within my heart it leads the reader to believe God’s laws are done away with or no longer relevant, a myth the Church has propagated for centuries in attempts to distance themselves from anything remotely Jewish. The author of Hebrews goes on to repeat his grave sin by rewriting it for emphasis in verses 8-9 AND claiming God’s Torah, part of what Christians label “OLD” Testament is removed. Out with the old and in with the new Hebrews 10:9 claims; hence, the birth of Replacement Theology. However, Deuteronomy 13 warns us that anyone that comes along and says God’s law, His Torah, His instructions, His voice is done away with, or steers others to not obey Torah is a false prophet and in dangerous error. This person or doctrine was sent as a test to see if you believe in God or man-made doctrines like Replacement Theology and the Book of Hebrews. Fascinating that the author could not even pen his name to this manuscript just as the alleged authors of the Gospels did not pen their names either.

Why Don’t We Perform Animal Sacrifices Today?

According to Torah (God’s law/First 5 Books of the Bible), the animal sacrifices, as well as all the other sacrifices, including the various sacrifices performed at Passover or the Feast of Tabernacles (Sukkot), for example, can only be done:

#1 in the place where God chooses, namely in the tabernacle/temple {in Jerusalem} (see Exodus 20:24; Leviticus 17:3-6; Deuteronomy 12:13-14, 16:5-6). In other words, sacrifices cannot take place in our back yard, in our homes, or wherever we want, etc. Worship isn’t about what we want, it’s about what He wants. Unfortunately, the tabernacle/temple, according to the specifications outlined in Torah (starting in Exodus 25+), no longer exists. The original tabernacle was constructed by the Israelites while wandering the wilderness in Moses’ day followed by Solomon’s temple, a brick and mortar building, which was destroyed by the Babylonian’s in 587 BC, as predicted by the prophet Jeremiah as judgment by God for not adhering to God’s Torah. Later, Ezra and Nehemiah helped reconstruct the temple after the 70 year captivity of the Jews relinquished. That temple was destroyed in 70 AD by the Roman Empire. The various ceremonial sacrifices can only be offered in the prescribed temple as outlined within the Torah. So since none exists since 70 AD, the sacrifices ceased at that time, just as they did when the Jewish people were in Babylonian captivity (no temple). 

#2 The sacrifices can only be orchestrated and performed by Levite priests, who all stem from Moses’ brother, Aaron. See Exodus 28-29.


Due to the fact that there is no physical temple in Jerusalem, per the detailed outline of Torah, animals sacrifices cannot legally manifest. (Note: The Temple Institute has created all the artifacts for the third temple and they/Jewish people today have been rehearsing such events anticipating a third temple to be built in the near future).


In summary, the various ceremonial sacrifices performed daily and during the Feast of the LORD can only be performed in a temple as outlined in Scripture located in Jerusalem where the Levite priest can resume their appointed role. Until a temple is reconstructed, presumably on temple-mount, where Solomon’s temple and the temple of Nehemiah’s day is believed to have resided, no ceremonial sacrifices can manifest. T+he Book of Ezekiel in chapters 44-46 as well as in Zechariah 14:16+ predict sacrifices will resume in the World-To-Come and even Gentiles will be participating in this aspect of worshipping the One True Living God.
