Jesus and Atonement

To the Philistines and Sadducees, Jesus was a heretic and a blasphemer. They believed an angry and vengeful God demanded blood sacrifices to appease his wrath. 

Instead, Jesus taught us that God is not an angry monarch. He loves us. Every one. Regardless of our identity.It is therefore unnecessary to appease God with tangible sacrifices. 

He prefers we demonstrate our faith and commitment by engaging in acts of love.
