The last sacrifce that God accepted was that of Jesus, God no longer accepts blood sacrifices

Answer:Judaism never believed in or condoned human sacrifice. Human sacrifice is a pagan concept.

A sacrifice alone never provided atonement. It was only part of a processes that also included returning to G-d's way and repairing the damage done. Offering a sacrifice drew one close to G-d and repaired the spritaul damage done. Today we can not offer sacrifices in the Temple, instead we donate money thereby redeeming the sacrifice.
