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 3were 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.
The Biblical God Condones Slavery?
Leviticus 25:42-45 God said: I brought the Israelites out of Egypt and they are My slaves. Do not dominate My slave to break his spirit since you fear (Me) your God. You can have other male and female slaves that you buy from nations around you. These slaves shall become hereditary property that you pass down to your children and you shall have them serve you forever. KJV
Leviticus 25: 44 Slaves, male and female you may indeed possess… Catholic
This has to absolutely clarify, by evidence, God’s slavery issue. God definitely condones slavery; but shucks, clergy will probably claim these are still misinterpretations.
The State of Mississippi ratified the13th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, abolishing slavery on 3/21/1995: Harper’s Magazine.
Yes, that’s 1995. How advanced we are…
Leviticus 26:27-29 If you persist in disobeying and defying Me (God), I will punish you until you begin to eat the flesh of your own sons and daughters. Catholic
Jeremiah: 19:9 God said: I will have them eat the flesh of their sons and daughters, they shall eat one another’s flesh…
Ezekiel 5:10 Fathers shall eat sons and sons shall eat fathers.
Personally, I’ve about had it with this God. GWD
Critic / apologist / believer: Why? Where’s your facts? I’m tired of your false allegations.
Leviticus 26:38 You will be lost among the Gentiles, swallowed up in your enemy’s country.
Prior to this critical and lengthy research, I was religiously hypnotized (brain dead) and Biblically ignorant. Some may feel that I still am. Believers are hypnotized. This material is designed to de-hypnotize mind-set victims; to re-introduce a thinking process – and a conscience. GWD
Would you stand and declare the God depicted within the pages of The Old Testament to be the same God-of-Love that you carry within your heart? What chapter and verse would you use for evidence? You would probably describe a loving, caring, gentle God who has compassion, who is above all, fair. All may be supportive of that God; but, alas, that God is not depicted within these pages. If you have a God in your heart, one you invented or adapted for yourself, stick with it. It is probably a much nicer God than the Biblical God. However, if that be the case, why be a hypocrite and declare Them to be the same?
“Ego”: Concerns these three (3) behavioral manifestations:
I am the value, I am the authority, I am entitled.
Try applying these behavioral perspectives to the Biblical self-descriptions of God. What was God’s motive for destroying Pharaoh and the people of Egypt? He performed these wonders just to let them know who is God, the value, the authority, the more important.
Egos want to make a difference in nature and time. Egos try to be more than they are. Egos have desires to make history, influence events and like Gods, rule religions and businesses.
Egos try to duplicate themselves by restricting, confining, enslaving and converting others. Maybe a human being who worship its God is just pretending that its Ego is more important, more valuable and more entitled than it really is.
In behavioral reality, are concepts of God and ego synonymous? Everything alive has an ego of sorts.
We tend to protect and defend our ego as sacredly as we attach to and protect our concepts of authority (King / President / God). Have you ever heard anyone define ego? Could you define ego? Have you ever heard anyone define their God to be unlike the Biblical God, rather in a favorable, “feel-good” light? Always, you say?
For someone to live, things must die. For someone to live well, more things must die.
Throughout The Old Testament, God demanded of His people:
Love, Honor & Obey
1. Worship Me! Love Me! Make Me the value! Sacrifice to ME!
2. Obey Me or Die for I am the authority over you.
3. Give sacrifice to Me for I am more important than you.
4. I will take anything from you at any time for I own you and am entitled.
In predator human, animal, insect and microbe terms, are these not genetic ego / behavior manifestations?
Prayer: Because man’s ego wants to control nature and time, and to become more than he is, he tries to figure out how to pleasure God; then, how to control God to do his bidding.
God took orders from Moses, Joshua, Elijah and Elisha to name a few.
By the moral and legal standards that mankind outwardly tries to uphold, this God proves to be evil, not moral. The Biblical God is a genuine model of a heinous criminal.
Why do people aggressively defend God? Could they be, vicariously, just defending the sanctity of their own feelings; their ego? Is defending God simply a ego manifestation?
More of the almighty EGO:
A believer’s behavior concerning his or her own Ego / God: My feelings about my own Ego / God are more valuable, more important, and more the authority than your feelings about your Ego / God.
Are other GODS simply other big EGOS?
What would a human characteristic be called that would require the worship from others? EGO! Doesn’t EGO assume superiority over those inferior? Is GOD but EGO to require the servitude, obedience, groveling and worship of inferiors? Based on the characteristics and deeds of the God of the Bible, what kind of God are believers worshipping? And why? What does that say about the believer in question?
The word ego is not found in the Bible or in the New Exhaustive Strong’s Concordance. It is not found in the Holman Bible Dictionary. Vanity is mentioned. Maybe any concept of God is only vanity. Maybe ego is just God / vanity.
The words “Ego” and “God” are both found in the dictionary – so, both have significance. They are both mostly identified by attitudes and behavior manifestations. Neither are items that exist in reality. One cannot point to a part of the human body and say this is where the Ego resides any more than one can locate any God in the entire Universe.
When people practice believing in God, they get “spiritual” fantasizing a magical authority who controls and protects their lives.
Husbands, wives, parents, bosses, business owners, military leaders and governments capitalize on this believing in God by insisting: Love me, obey me, be loyal to me, or else. Aren’t our little egos God-like and child-like, or what?
Isn’t the wise parent, who assists his or her child in establishing its own mastership and self-responsibility, the most precious parent of all? Aren’t some Biblically oriented people tormented, depressed and resentful of what life has handed them? Could their distorted outlook on life be based on their distorted religious views?
In 1997, 1 in 155 U.S. residents were in jail or in the prison system. (Internet network news) Is our Biblical Jesus / God-model working? Is the Judeo-Christian ethic worth while?
Father Gilbert Graham: When I was Major Superior of my religious community, I made the decision that I was going to tell everybody the truth. First of all, I learned they don’t want to hear the truth and secondly, they never forgive you for the truth. I would do it much differently today if I had the opportunity again. (American Religious Town Hall, TV)
Q: In what competition does one not lie, deceive and mislead for one’s own advantage? How about war? Granted, facts that do not affect your life are none of your business, but what about the facts that do affect your life? Is it customary for you to deceive others or to be deceived by them? Are 9th commandment tactics only good as long as they work?
When most clergy say the word spiritual, most realists hear the word fantasy.
When believers describe “spiritual” matters, most realists smile at their fantasies.
The words of the Bible, like a continent or a planet is only new to its discoverer.
Great discoveries often baffle conventional minds.
