God Loves the Smell of Burning Fat!
Leviticus 1-5: These sacred chapters show us how to select, qualify, kill and prepare offerings of sacrifice to God. You will need a strong stomach to visualize the reality of this God's cruelty. Picture your favorite pet. Just imagine putting your hand on the animal's head, looking into its loving, trusting eyes as you slit its throat. Over and over this is instructed. Then, the details about the head, the fat, the organs, the burning, and the sweet odor that this God loves to smell. Who is these poor animals' adversary?
God Loves The Smell Of Burning Fat
Leviticus 1:9,18 & 3:5 In sacrifice, the fragrance of burning fat is the Lord's.
Karen Armstrong, author of the book - The History of God: I don't like the image of God sniffing the sweet smell of meat. As a nun, God was terrifying for me. God behaves just like an inadequate human being.
Leviticus 4:3 If an anointed priest sins, all the people become guilty.
Leviticus 4:22-26 If a leader commits a sin, the priest shall make atonement for the leader's sin and it will be forgiven.
What kind of justice system can mankind experience with this? A leader can sin often as long as he can afford to keep the priests in burnt fat offerings, so that this God's "smeller" is content. Can a commoner get the same forgiveness without the goats and doves?
Leviticus 5:1 If someone, bound by oath, refuses to give information he has seen or learned, he commits a sin and has guilt to bear.
Is it "know-it-all" God, or “the assumed authority” who wants to know the information, so they can punish someone who doesn't make things go his or her way? If God knows it all, who gains benefit from this knowledge? If there was no God, wouldn't it be just the assumed authority? Would parents, governments, employers or the military ever promote confessions, by fear of consequence, for their own interests?
Nah . . .
Leviticus 5:11-13 States what happens if you are unable to afford sacrifices? The rest of all offerings shall belong to the priests.
Leviticus 5:15 It is sin to cheat the Lord's sacred dues.
Behold: The cry of the Mafia and the I.R.S.?
Leviticus 7:31 But, the breast of the sacrifice shall be Aaron's and his sons.
Aaron & His Sons
What? The priest’s get the good stuff? Is one capable of smelling a rat?
To sacrifice: To kill something innocent, virginal and pure, in your place. By some priest's atonement, your sacrifice pays for your sins against God. Could a holy sacrifice be just to satisfy some economic and political objectives? Could it be designed to keep people poor and fearfully groveling to an assumed authority? Could taxes qualify as modern sacrifices to an ever-changing and rotating, assumed authority called Government?
Sacrifice was symbolic that all life belonged to God, that God could and would require your sacrifice at any time. The U. S. Government has provided a similar military draft requirement for its qualified males.
Does modern-day man still promote and give up human sacrifices? Examine the biggest human sacrifices we demand of our own kind: War is wholesale slaughter. Whether drafted or recruited, to qualify they must be young, healthy, not blemished (no handicap, bad eyes, bad ears, flat feet etc.); must be innocent (moral - not a felon) and mentally responsive. Only they qualify to kill and die. Our own Christian Government has often sent our best humanity off to murder many other countries’ best humanity. Do you want it to continue?
Dianne Bergant Ph.D. OT Professor: We know Israel was involved in child sacrifice. We found evidence in the foundation of the city of Jericho for example. It was the first-born that were sacrificed. What we have here is a move from child sacrifice to substitution sacrifice. You don’t sacrifice your child. You sacrifice an animal in place of your child.
Dianne Bergant Ph.D. Old Testament Professor
Leviticus 8:31 Moses orders boiled flesh. Aaron and his sons shall eat it. Catholic
Why? Boiling meat gives off no burning fat smell for this God. Who’s this stuff for, really?
Leviticus 10:1-2 Two (2) sons of Aaron (God's chosen priests) made errors in their cooking procedure and God murdered them with fire, and they died.
Instant won-ton! Picky-picky.
Leviticus 11:13 & 19 Of the birds you shall not eat the Bat.
A Bat is not a bird.
Leviticus 11:23 All winged insects that have 4 legs Catholic / 4 feet KJV are loathsome for you.
What insects have 4 legs / 4 feet? What impeccable, Biblical intellect?
What will it take to prove to you that "God’s Word" is infallible?
Leviticus 12:2 & 5 When a woman gives birth to a boy, she is unclean for 7 days. When a woman gives birth to a girl, she is unclean for 14 days.
Why? Whose prejudicial and sexist attitude is this? Is it really God's or some other moron’s?
Leviticus 12:5-7 The woman (mother) has to give sacrifice, a sin offering to atone for her menstruation…
Leviticus 15:31 Anyone unclean defiling God's dwelling shall die.
Leviticus 17:10-12 God said: Whoever eats any manner of blood, I will set my face against that soul that eats blood and will cut him off from his people. No one shall eat blood. KJV
What about the Catholic "sacraments" - pretending to drink the blood and eating the body of Jesus in John 6:53-58?
Leviticus 18:12 God commanded: You shall not have sex with your father's sister. Torah & Catholic & KJV
Exodus 6:20 Amram took Jochebed his father’s sister for his wife. She bore him Aaron and Moses. KJV
Jochebed & Moses
Now, this is shocking! Moses is credited to have written the Torah / Pentateuch (the first 5 books of the Bible).
If Moses wrote Leviticus, - then Moses did not "honor his father and mother" - when he exposed their sin of incest. The Biblical God commanded against and forbid this specific sexual union right here in Leviticus 18:12.
If God does NOT change and God condemned Moses' father - aunt incest, why was Moses selected as God's favored hero?
Leviticus 18:22 Do not lie with a male as with a woman; (homosexuality) such a thing is a disgusting perversion. Torah
Romans 1:27 The men, instead of having normal sexual relations with women, burned with lust for each other. Men did shameful things with other men, and as a result of this sin, they suffered within themselves the penalty they deserved.
Some gay men and women are among the smartest human beings on planet Earth - yet many of them still support and promote the very Biblical God Who has condemned them.
If you are a Christian, have you obeyed this command? How many of God's 613 written commands have you not obeyed?
Are you confident that you are a God-obeying Christian?
It is also interesting how hypocritical the Catholic Church has been concerning their gay priests and small boys.
Leviticus 19:28 God commands you to not make tattoo marks on your skin.
My favorite Bible C&V preacher his massive tatoos on one of his TV programs. He considers himself to be God's "Elect". It appears that "God's Elect" are allowed to obey Him.
Leviticus 19:31 Do not go to the mediums nor consult fortune tellers.
Saul, the Jew's first God-appointed King, consulted with a medium (witch). God had King Saul done in.
Leviticus 20:2-3 Any Israelite or alien who offers his child (in sacrifice) to Molech shall be put to death.
The Pagan God, Molech
Are they to sacrifice their child only to God as in Judges 11:30-39?
Leviticus 20:9 Anyone who curses mom or dad shall be put to death.
Leviticus 20:10 God commands: If you commit adultery means death.
Leviticus 20:11 And the man that lieth with his father's wife hath "uncovered his father's nakedness": both of them shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.
If a man has sex with his father's wife, both will be put to death? According to this C&V, Ham had sex with Noah's wife, his mother.
In Genesis 35:22 Jacob’s son Rueben had sex with his father Jacob’s concubine Bilhah and Jacob was only “greatly offended”.
Rueben was obviously a God-chosen "insider".
Leviticus 20:12 If a man has sex with his daughter-in-law, both will be put to death.
Leviticus 20:13 God commands to kill gay men.
Bill Mahr: The Bible is that book that Christians hold up when they scream at gay people.
I Corinthians 6:9-10 Homosexuals will not inherit the Kingdom of Heaven.
God commands to kill men who do what gay men do. So, obviously God is commanding to kill gay men. That does-in over 10% of human males and another 30% who are bi-sexual and occasional experimenters. Are all gay and bisexual women included in this commandment?
If you become upset with this sacred scripture, why? Are you upset in defense that no God nor Christian would do such a thing? Or, are you upset because you now must uncover your supportive feelings that gay men should righteously be murdered? Is your difficulty in your acknowledging the Biblical words or in describing your feelings and prejudices (which is your “truth”) towards them? Let's ask the big questions. Would your God do such a thing? What does the Bible say? Do you believe the Bible? If God did do it, would you condone such a thing? Tough, isn't it? You know what's really tough? It’s tough to read something on paper that you can't effectively control or argue with.
II Sam 1:26 God's favorite David said: Jonathan, your love to me is wonderful, passing the love of women...
David sounds a little bisexual to me.
Jonathan & David
John 21:7 “The (specific) disciple whom Jesus loved” is mentioned a few times.
Did Jesus have an unpopular, homosexual secret?
Leviticus 20:14 If a man marries a woman and her mother, burn all three of them to death.
Leviticus 20:15 If a man has sex with an animal, kill both of them.
Leviticus 20:16 Kill women who have sex with animals.
Well, it does appear that gay women may have the same fate as gay men.
Leviticus 20:17 If a man takes his sister, even a half-sister, who is the daughter of his father or mother, they will be cut off from their people. Since he committed incest with his sister, he shall bear his guilt. Torah
A factual review:
Abraham, the father of Judaism, Christianity and Islam had sex with his half-sister Sarah, (same father, different mothers: Genesis 20:12).
Why were they chosen by the Biblical God to be the parents of all future generations? Abraham, Jacob, Lot, David, Solomon and most of the Bible's Heroes did commit incest, murder, theft and /or adultery, and they were all God's chosen favorites.
Lot had sex with and impregnated both of his daughters.
Jacob had sex and kids with his own cousins - Rachel, Leah, Bilhah and Zilpah. Torah
David had sex with already married Bathsheba and then had her husband, Uriah killed.
Judah impregnated his daughter-in-law, Tamar, who sold Judah sex, with twins. One twin was Perez. All 3 were in Jesus Christ's "sacred" bloodline / lineage.
Judah & Tamar
Tamar sold sex to Judah so he thought she was a hooker. Hummm, if Tamar sold sex even once, she was a hooker.
Alas! Both Judah and Tamar were in Jesus Christ's lineage.
Rueben, Jacob's son, had sex with his father's concubine, Bilhah.
Did any of them die due to their illegal and immoral actions? No! Many, whom they sired, became this God's Biblical heroes.
Leviticus 20:27 A man or woman who acts as a medium or fortune teller shall be put to death.
Leviticus 21:7&13-14 A priest shall not marry a woman who has been a prostitute or divorced.
What? God commanded His own hero / priest / prophet, Hosea, to marry a hooker in Hosea 1:2. God breaks many of His own commandments when He gets the urge. Do as I say - not as I do. Behold, the God of hypocrisy.
When believers become exposed to controversial Biblical facts, they become sensitive to their own egos, their fearful feelings, while being insensitive to the Biblical facts. Why? When pressed, believers tend to get angry or to preach, become sternly philosophical concerning Darwinism, Atheism, or to fall back into a comatose state called blind-faith.
Leviticus 21:9 A priest's daughter who fornicates; burn her to death.
Could this Bible verse contribute to the oath of celibacy taken by all Catholic Priests - and why many Catholic Priests prefer having sex with boys? Doesn’t God see that as a gay act? Do believers? Despite President Bill Clinton's lame claim, how can some priests, politicians and their attorneys, view oral sex not to be a sexual act. If oral sex is the name of the act, then how can sex not be part of the act?
(Deuteronomy 22:20-21 If virginity is not found in a girl, stone her to death.)
Leviticus 21:13 A priest shall marry only a virgin.
Picky, picky. Warning! The first time won't be that good.
One priest’s love-life got so bad, he slapped himself for getting personal.
Often there are big discrepancies between what people say and what they mean. In the long run, characters tend to be judged by their actions (behavior), what they actually do, rather than by their words, beliefs or faith. What is said by believers about the Biblical God is certainly different than what the Bible writes about Him.
Sin: The conflict between one’s desire and another’s opinion of it.
What images can be more fearful to a child or an adult than the image of a wrathful, vengeful, monstrous Supreme Being.
Life is in constant change, errors happen, pencils have erasers. Logic and reason must be applied to erase guilt.
What greater waste of your life’s time is there than to support the heinous deeds of the God depicted in The Old Testament?
Everyone, in the world, is an atheist in someone’s opinion.
The Hubbell Space Telescope indicates there are over 50 billion universes. To boastfully declare that The God of All Creation acts on behalf of a few chosen human beings is the height of human arrogance. The miracles of religion are based mostly on supernatural events. During our lifetimes, nature has done nothing that nature has not done before in recorded history. If something has been done before, no matter how rarely, or, if it can be duplicated again, it can not qualify as supernatural.
The Universe Within 500 Million Light Years
Magicians Siegfried and Roy, David Copperfield, Lance Burton and others do magic acts that are truly baffling. They admit that it’s all tricks and illusions. Most believers will pass on knowing how the tricks are done. They prefer to be entertained by their confusion and ignorance.
Leviticus 21:17-24 Any one with a handicap shall not profane God's sanctuary.
If I were into censorship, this would probably be the verses most considered. To the people who will cry discovering this Holy, Sacred Passage of Biblical Scripture, I am so sorry it’s there. I’m sorry that most of this ugly stuff is there. GWD
The Torah says: Anyone who is blind, lame, deformed, crippled, is a hunchback, a dwarf or has bad eyes, severe eczema or has a hernia cannot defile the sanctuary which is Holy to Me (God).
So, if you are not perfect, you are out, and God made you imperfect. How can prayer help a handicapped person if this God feels desecrated and appalled by his or her presence? Do not these Bibles portray this God to be cruel, shallow, wicked, tyrannical, evil and callous?
Leviticus 22:11 God's guidance when a priests buys a (Gentile) slave. Torah notes.
Leviticus 22:19-24 God won't accept for sacrifice a blemished animal; blind, crippled, or with crushed, torn out or cut off testicles (balls). Catholic
Leviticus 22:27 When a baby ox or lamb is born, it shall remain with its mother 7 days before being sacrificed to God. You don’t slaughter the mother the same day with her young.
Nice touch. God obviously wants the mother-baby bonding completed before the baby is taken away to slaughter. And, you don’t slaughter mom the same day so she can suffer her loss a day or so before she’s slaughtered. Well, mothers are just dumb animals with no feelings, right?
When a government drafts a human mother's baby into war, which amounts to wholesale human sacrifice, does she feel anything? Does she tend to do any thing about it? Baa?
Leviticus 24:11-16 An Israelite cursed and blasphemed God’s name. God said: Take him outside the camp and let the whole community murder him. Anyone who curses God shall be put to death. Catholic
Leviticus 24:17 One who takes a human life must be put to death.
Really? How many Biblical heroes besides Abraham, Moses, Joshua, Jephthah, David, Solomon, Elijah, Elisha, Samson and Jehu murdered, yet, were chosen for a personal partnership and /or employment by this God? People study facts to gain information. People investigate facts to find evidence concerning corrupt intentions and deeds that break the law.
This study, at this point, has turned into an investigation. It takes courage to review it. Sometimes, even Mensa members, those of tested intellect to be in the top 1% of society, develop the attention span of a 5 year-old when exposed to this material. Programmed fear over-rides their thinking powers and they can't stay on the topic either.
Isaiah 66:2-4 God said; The one I approve is the lowly, afflicted man who trembles at my word. Merely slaughtering an ox is like slaying a man; sacrificing a lamb like breaking a dog’s neck. Bringing a cereal offering is like offering swine’s blood. Since those have chosen their own ways, I will ruthless treatment for them and bring upon them what they fear.
What tyrant, in history, has not operated in this manner?
God! What a model!
Why most believers won’t read this material:
Believers deep down inside view God and their own egos to be synonymous. They feel: I’m committed to God. If God is being accused, I am being accused. I want power and control over others just as God demands. I don’t want to view God’s evil and heinous characteristics because I am afraid I will have to face-up and admit to them when I look in the mirror or into my own soul. I fear I am not honest when it comes to God. I don’t want to know I fear, am prone to becoming God-like and am in denial; and I do not want to be challenged.
