Why isn’t the lamb sacred? Lamb take away the sins of the world? Sounds like a pretty important job to me. Raise up the lamb? Why not? Everybody likes to eat the meek that’s why.
One might think that at least Christians would steer clear of consuming the animal God chose to take away the sins of the world.
If God doesn’t eat, then why would we slaughter the lamb and offer it to God, then eat it ourselves? And by us doing so, God takes away all sin? forgives all sin? makes us not want to commit sin? all of the above?
How many lambs slaughtered in a year? Every year? Has it accomplished any noteworthy or noble goal? any life-saving, planet-saving achievements?
Isn’t the lamb of God really a human? So how many humans do we slaughter in the name of God every year – through wars? Any sign yet that the slaughtered sacrifices work?
Jesus proclaimed himself to be the last sacrifice. Bread and wine is the new flesh and blood.
