"Does the LORD delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices
as much as in obeying the LORD?
To obey is better than sacrifice,
and to heed is better than the fat of rams.

23 For rebellion is like the sin of divination,
and arrogance like the evil of idolatry...

Old Testament

"Does the LORD delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices
as much as in obeying the LORD?
To obey is better than sacrifice,
and to heed is better than the fat of rams.
23 For rebellion is like the sin of divination,
and arrogance like the evil of idolatry.
Because you have rejected the word of the LORD,
he has rejected you as king."
-1 Samuel 15

*see Bible


" 3 To do what is right and just is more acceptable to the LORD than sacrifice. ...-Proverbs 21

    2 Self-Mummification

    5 Human Sacrifice
    "... Human sacrifice is the act of killing a human being for the purposes of making an offering to a deity or other, normally supernatural, power. It was practiced in many ancient cultures. The practice has varied between different cultures, with some like the Mayans and Aztecs being notorious for their ritual killings, while others have looked down on the practice as primitive. Victims were ritually killed in a manner that was supposed to please or appease gods or spirits. Victims ranged from prisoners to infants to Vestal Virgins, who suffered such fates as burning, beheading and being buried alive.
    Over time human sacrifice has become less common around the world, and sacrifices are now very rare. Most religions condemn the practice and present-day laws generally treat it as a criminal matter. Nonetheless it is still occasionally seen today, especially in the least developed areas of the world where traditional beliefs persist..."

  • Pre-Columbian Sacrifices Nora Raggio Art History 193--Spring 2000

  • "..The powerful Inca empire was hierarchical in nature, with the Inca ruler considered to be a direct descendant of the sun god, Inti, who was in turn the son of the creator god Viracocha.
    The Inca sacrifices, excluding the sacrifices committed during war, were linked closely with religion, although the subtext was also one of the survival of the community and the maintenance of established political power. The Inca religion was based primarily on the worship of nature gods such as the sun, the moon, the rain, and the mountains--which dominated the landscape. Inca ritual included elaborate forms of divination and the sacrifice of humans and animals.
    Figure 2 shows the mummy of a young girl named "The Ice Maiden" or "Juanita", excavated in the mid 1990s by Johan Reinhard (PBS Nova, Peru). Based on the archaelogical evidence and on accounts of child sacrifices documented by the conquering Spaniards, Juanita was a young girl who was sacrificed in the name of Inca religion. She was found above 18,000 feet on the peak of Ampato, northwest of Cuzco, the capital of the Inca empire, preserved by ice, richly covered in textiles and accompanied by an abundant array of burial artefacts.
    To date, more than a hundred sacred Inca ceremonial sites have been excavated at an elevation of over 15,000 feet on several Andean peaks. Most of these have been found from central Chile to Southern Peru. ..

    Conclusion--Andean Sacrificial Practices
    The common thread to Andean cultures is the worship of nature, particularly that of mountains (as evidenced in Cerro Blanco, Tihuanaco, and the burial sites of child sacrifices at the peaks of mountains) and the sun, as identified with the Inca ruler-god.
    The worship of mountains is no surprise. The Andean cordillera is one of the highest mountain ranges in America, its peaks carry an austere and imposing beauty. The mountains provided the streams that watered the crops and the association with fertility is clear. The sinister side of mountains was erupting volcanoes and earthquakes. Having lived in California, I can well relate to the landscape being "angry" when it shakes so vigorously.
    The human sacrifices took place in Inca times apparently only for the most momentous occasions, such as famine, pestilence, earthquakes, the death of a ruler-god, or on a more "positive" side, the accession of a ruler.
    I find the insistence on child sacrifice hard to believe. Child sacrifice was performed in ancient Israel (Abraham and Isaac) and in Greece (Agamemnon and Iphigenia) although the practice then shifted to other types of sacrifices. It has been argued that putting the most beautiful, cherished children to death was the greatest sacrifice that could be offered by people. The logic is that if one sacrifices what is most dear, the benefits are the greatest ("no pain, no gain" is the vestige of this logic).
    It is said the Pizarro easily conquered the Incas because of the easy access provided by the Inca route and because of the disease



  • Modern Day Human Sacrifice In Iran On August 23, 2010, In Human Rights, By M. Varn Chandola

  • "...Although I believed that the last vestiges of human sacrifice disappeared over a century ago, I recently discovered that it was still being practiced and legally recognized in “modern” day Iran where Sakineh Mohammedie Ashtiani was sentenced to die by an ancient ritualistic practice under the pretense of religion.
    Sakineh Mohammedie Ashtiani, a forty-three year old mother of two who was convicted of adultery by an Iranian court, was sentenced to death by stoning. Stoning is a recognized form of execution under Iran’s penal code which is based on Islamic Law. Considering that the Quran, unlike the Bible, does not mention stoning as a prescribed method of execution, the practice finds its legality under Iran’s debatable interpretation of Sharia law which is considered by Muslims to be God’s law. ...

    Why did God command Abraham to sacrifice Isaac ? from nofearinlove418

    Why did God tell Abraham to sacrifice Isaac?,
    "Why then would God give this command? The point was for Abraham to demonstrate that he trusted God completely and placed him above all else, even his own son.1 Though God of course already knew that Abraham had faith in him, it was necessary for Abraham to prove it through action. "His faith was made complete by what he did" (James 2:21-23). Because of his actions, not only God but Abraham, his family and future generations knew that Abraham trusted God. This trust was important because it indicated that Abraham had the proper relationship with God (he was treating God as God deserves to be treated) and could benefit from God's good plans for his life.

    Wasn't it wrong for Abraham to obey God?

    God's command to Abraham was not wrong, for God has the right to take human life (see the article on God's moral authority) and therefore had the right to command Isaac's death. Abraham had known God for many years prior to this, so he knew God's character and knew that God had the right to give this command. Had Abraham initiated the sacrifice or followed the order of someone who was not authorized by God, then his act would have been wrong.

    Furthermore, Abraham knew that God had promised him offspring through Isaac, so this gave him reason to believe that God did not intend for Isaac to die permanently:

    By faith Abraham, when God tested him, offered Isaac as a sacrifice. He who had received the promises was about to sacrifice his one and only son, even though God had said to him, "It is through Isaac that your offspring will be reckoned." Abraham reasoned that God could raise the dead, and figuratively speaking, he did receive Isaac back from death. (Hebrews 11:17-19) ...
