sorry I thought you were someone seeking a real answer from Scripture. Maybe you should ask more specific or better questions to get your presuposed answers.
Yeah I'm uncertain, sometimes you get threads where people hardly interact and then forget about them. I've forgotten about threads myself for months ;)

Maybe they had legitimate intent maybe not, it's hard to tell without them responding. I try to do my best on here to give the benefit of the doubt if someone weren't a native English speaker or something or maybe only read the Word in their second language or something else. Though of course, it depends on what is said.

If by saying beast you mean godless liberals then I encourage you to slaughter two a day and at least twice that amount on Tuesdays and every other Saturday.
You want us to murder all liberals, be their judge, jury and murderers??? If so, where in the Bible does Jesus even hint at this kind of madness???

I have been reading Leviticus
We dont need to offer beasts anymore, Jesus became the "beast" of sacrifice, as the precious lamb that takes away the sins of the world. Only an infinite God can pay the penalty of an infinite punishment. But this is why you should read the whole bible, its best the read the gospels too to understand why and how Jesus became a sacrifice dying on the cross.

Okay, so we should ignore Leviticus?
The book of Hebrews gives a good account of why animal sacrifices are no longer of any value. Jesus Christ is the one sacrifice that fulfills all that the Father requires to make an atonement for sin. Salvation is by grace through the sacrifice of Christ.

If we read and study Leviticus we see how laborious it was for Israel to work to atone for sins. Israel failed because they lost sight of God in their efforts to become righteous.

By the way there is no longer a temple in which to offer the sacrifices that Leviticus required.

For the cause of Christ

Yes. We follow the Bible
That's a very good thing. In the New Testament you will learn that Jesus death on the cross is the real sacrifice for sin. The sacrifices mentioned in the Old Testament was pointing to Jesus.

Human sacrifice then.
How about providing some more words so that we can understand what you're thinking? Out-of-context statements don't further the conversation.

Christianity is a religion based around human sacrifice.

Christianity is a religion based around human sacrifice.
It is based on Christ Jesus, both divine and human, who willing laid down His life for the salvation of mankind .............. who would receive Him as Savior!

Christianity is not a religion.......... it is having a relationship with God based on His terms.

@BuffyLou the question that I have for you is, who taught all the people of many religions beside Judaism, over all islands and continents, to do sacrifices, that blood is required to wash sins? Who taught them this?
All people from the dawn of time knew in their hearts that every sin goes against the law of life, and that wages for sin is death, and they were convicted in their hearts, and they made sacrifices and offerings, trying to reconcile themselves with Heaven. Sometimes the ways they did this was quite warped, which depended on the nation and its depravity level.
The Creator took one of these peoples and gave them commandments about specific animal sacrifices that would describe the law of life prophetically, and that would be a shadow of His salvation to come, in their time, when the world is ready. People over the world might not do these things anymore because the cultures changed, but people still try to redeem themselves through offerings like charity in order to have blessings in their life, or they just suffer through guilt for the things they did wrong, but there are always doubts. The difference between a Christian and the world is that we have relationship with Life itself, and if we do charity, we do it out of free will with the same Spirit of love that reached out to mankind with forgiveness and salvation, not out of guilt.

Leviticus: Finding Christ In Leviticus, Hebrews 12:2, "Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God."

Leviticus One:
The burnt offering (Depicting Christ as our "dedicated" sin bearer and sufferer).

Leviticus Two:
The meat (or, grain) offering (Depicting Christ as our "sustenance" and example).

Leviticus Three:
The peace offering (Depicting Christ as our "communion" and peace).

Leviticus Four:
The sin offering (Depicting Christ as our "atoning" sin [guilt] substitute).

Leviticus Five:
The trespass offering (Depicting Christ as our "atoning" sin [damage] substitute).

When you research a matter, your prejudices might very well affect what you're going to find. Creator fashioned the universe so.
Psalms 18:26 With the pure thou wilt shew thyself pure; and with the froward thou wilt shew thyself froward.
And this was even proven recently in the lab with double slit experiment. I suggest you read up on it.
People who would malign God forget that their thoughts about God arise from their your own hearts.
God will not chase people to beat them on the head if they hate the Spirit of life, the Spirit isn't controlling, He lets people think what they wish. He isn't petty to have a need to defend Himself. When maligned, Jesus would say "thou sayest". Your speech speaks more about your inner contents than about Christianity.
Come with negativity and you will find and bring out more negativity.
Come with genuine questions without partiality or hatred, and you might as well find some knowledge and wisdom.
