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.

The Book of Isaiah, the Bible states that animals will be included in heaven. There is no place in the Bible where God speaks about treating animals like humans. In Proverbs and Exodus, the Bible states that animals should be treated kindly.

Christians generally believe in what the bible says about atonement. There are 69 references to the atonement of our sins by the blood of bulls and of goats in the Old Testament, but in the new Testament, in Hebrews, the Bible says: 10.4. For [it is] not possible that the blood of bulls and of goats should take away sins. and the writer of Hebrews goes on to talk of Christ's sacrifice for our sins: 10.12. But this man, after he had offered one sacrifice for sins for ever, sat down on the right hand of God; And finally, here is the only reference to 'atonement' in the New Testament, which Christians do believe: Romans 5.11. And not only [so], but we also joy in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom we have now received the atonement.

In the Bible, it says that when Jesus died, the law died with Him...now most people believe that this was the 10 commandments but in fact it was the law of Moses that died with Jesus.....to explain, Jesus was the ultimate sacrifice. Moses' law was one that had people sacrificing animals to cleanse themselves from sin, but God sent Jesus to die for our sins so we no longer need Moses' law.

Human nature is to be carnal, sensual, and devilish. Hence the Bible teaches to put away human nature and yield to the enticing of the Holy Spirit and become a saint through the atonement of Christ the Lord.
