On Goat Sacrifices and Stampedes

Click here to read a tragic story about an argument over goat sacrifices leading to ten deaths during a Hindu festival in India. Pagan practices always lead to negative results. We have much to be thankful for that Christ is our once for all sacrifice.

Hebrews 5:27, "He has no need, like those high priests, to offer sacrifices daily, first for his own sins and then for those of the people, since he did this once for all when he offered up himself."

Hebrews 9:26, "...for then he would have had to suffer repeatedly since the foundation of the world. But as it is, he has appeared once for all at the end of the ages to put away sin by the sacrifice of himself."

Hebrews 10:10, "And by that will we have been sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all."

Hebrews 10:12-14, "But when Christ had offered for all time a single sacrifice for sins, he sat down at the right hand of God, waiting from that time until his enemies should be made a footstool for his feet. For by a single offering he has perfected for all time those who are being sanctified."

"Pagan practices always lead to negative results"

Deep sorrow is the appropriate heart response for such ignorant behavior, but how such things amongst those who claim to be Christians grieve me: This weekend, in our country, there was much fanfare as a much admired woman (and deserving of great admiration) was declared a saint by a mere human being. Paganism is not dead!

All glory was given to man, NONE to our Sovereign God, nor our precious Savior, who alone, through His finished work, is able to declare a sinner, a saint.

"Deep sorrow is the appropriate heart response for such ignorant behavior." I agree completely.

I saw a report about how the Pope supposedly made several dead people into saints. The Australians seemed to be going crazy over it. How fooled so many people are regardless of what country they live in.
