The important thing to understand is that THE GOSPEL OF GOD’S LOVE 19 neither of these barbarian conceptions was “sacred,” but that they were merely primitive attempts to understand the source of life. ” And so we can observe that some of the Hebrew practices based on this concept developed as a sociological growth, divorced and completely separate from their religion; hence the Hebrews spilled the blood of animals on the ground, making sure that meat for consumption contained no blood, as prescribed in their daily food laws.
And so we can observe that some of the Hebrew practices based on this concept developed as a sociological growth, divorced and completely separate from their religion; hence the Hebrews spilled the blood of animals on the ground, making sure that meat for consumption contained no blood, as prescribed in their daily food laws. The great “contribution” which the Hebrews made to the practice of blood sacrifice was the rejection of human sacrifice, as found in the story of Abraham. This was of course a great humane advance, but the fact that animal sacrifices continued to be offered, and that these sacrifices were written about in the Scriptures, did not make them “sacred,” nor did it make it in any way true that the shedding of animal blood cleansed from sin.
