I’m watching this program on PBS about the ancient peoples of Teotihuacan – and they talked about both animal and human being sacrificed to their gods. The fact that these poor creatures and humans were sacrificed was bad enough, but that many were buried alive to slowly starve to death is heartbreaking.
Setting aside man’s continual inhumanity to man and creatures alike in the name of religion that continues today –
I am grateful that the God I love and serve and worship does not require blood sacrifice. All He requires of me is to show up, and to love and worship Him. Nothing else. His Love for me and my love for Him. That is the foundation on which I am building my life.
