Some wondering thoughts:

SIN
2398 Strongs’ Numbering System
חטא
châṭâ'
BDB (Brown-Driver-Briggs’ Hebrew Definitions):
1) to sin, miss, miss the way, go wrong, incur guilt, forfeit, purify from uncleanness

Unintentional sin not planned sin, very interesting. These sacrifices and rituals were designed for the “stuff” that happens along the way. Since we are creatures that hate to admit we “missed the mark,” so to speak, a person would have to operate in “Truth” to realize that they have missed it BEFORE the consequences show up in ones’ life or the life of the community. All sin gives fruit to its own rewards. To have a life rooted in Truth one must deal truthfully with oneself and not be restrained by what family, community, country and “Church” thinks. Many jobs require inventories, even if it is only of supplies, material and human resource; but how often do we take an inventory of ourselves based on the standard and rule of God’s Laws? It is not about what others say, or even ourselves, it is about what God says. Anything else is sin.

I also understand that one can know the Truth, but that doesn’t mean one applies Truth rightly. Like soap, Truth, the Word, does you no good unless applied according to directions.

Grace and peace,

Am confused about bread being a guilt offering. Scripture says without the shedding of blood there is no remission of sin. However Jesus calls his body bread and his wine blood in the last supper. This does make sense to me and it is a clear picture of God's amazing love and sacrifice for us.

Thanks for the reminder that the laying of hands on the offering is transferring the guilt from the person to the offering I knew that at one time, but had forgotten. Maybe the term "scapecoat" was created because more goats were sacrificed because more people had goats than bulls or rams. Besides, scapebull, scaperam, just don't sound right. Haha.

At the Ramsgate Christian fellowship we have been following Solomon and we ask for wisdom and discernment. We keep it to that in the main. We are a small fellowship, we never ask anybody to join us.
We know the Lord will build this house and the wisdom and discernment he will give us. will be all of him and none of us.

That is the way it should be, we know we are in for a good time with the Holy Ghost as we wait on him. Praise God

I hope I don't offend anyone, but as I was reading about all the sin offerings of animals, I visualized what to me was a very sad image. A line of people at the temple gate waiting in line to sacrifice (kill) their animals. Inside is a priest helping to burn animal parts and receiving some blood from each animal to pour it and sprinkle it with his hands at the entry to the inner curtain. One animal after another after another, probably all day long. Poor, innocent animals! Certainly doesn't seem like a setting that promotes spirituality? Rather, it seems like a pretty gruesome and grotesque scene. Whichever priest was on duty each day must have been the one that drew the short stick. Certainly pleased because of Jesus and His sacrifice of Himself that we are no longer bound by these Levitical sacrifice practices.

Love the One year bible on line, easy daily reading.I have a question about the sabbath. Jesus came to fulfill the law not do away with it and He himself kept the sabbath so why aren't the churches doing the same?
