  1. ऑटो सेक्टर में आई मंदी ने सभी कंपनियों की हालात खराब कर दी है. कंपनियों की बिक्री दिन पर दिन घटती जा रही है. क्योंकि बाजार में गाड़ियों की मांग ही नहीं है. ऐसे में कंपनियां इसे देखकर परेशान है. यही कारण है कि कंपनियों ने मांग को बढ़ाने और अपने घाटे को कम करने के लिए छूट देना शुरू कर दिया है.मारुति के बाद होंडा अपनी बिक्री को बढ़ाने के लिए अपनी गाड़ियों पर एक्सटेंडेट वॉरंटी, इंश्योरेंस और एक्सेसरीज से लेकर चार लाख रुपए तक का कैश डिस्काउंट दे रही है. होंड़ा ये ऑफर्स एक कार पर नहीं बल्कि अपनी कई सारी कार पर दे रहे हैं. https://hs.news/honda-brought-heavy-discounts-on-vehicles/

    THERE IS NO ROLE FOR ANIMAL SACRIFICE IN CHRISTIANITY
    By Jill Hamilton
    Thu 15 Dec 2011 07.09 EST

    Christians believe Jesus’s death made sacrifice obsolete. Yet in some places in the Holy Land, the gruesome practice continues…

    There is a Christmas card that I will probably never send. I would not dare to. It is a cross of Jesus drawn in fresh blood from an animal sacrifice. Although slaughter for sacrifice contradicts a basic belief of Christianity, it is practiced by local Catholics, Greek Orthodox and other Christians at the ruined Byzantine church of Saint George in the village of Taybeh, 20 miles from Jerusalem. “Around 70 to 80 lambs are sacrificed here each year,” said the Roman Catholic priest, Father Raed.

    Similar sacrifices are also made in the towns of Lodd, Jaffa, al-Khadar and elsewhere in the Holy Land.

    Yet bloodless altars are a distinguishing feature of Christian churches. One of the tenets of the faith is that Jesus was the ultimate and final sacrifice. Christians atone for their sins without the shedding of blood. They look to Jesus as the lamb of God who made the ancient belief in sacrifice obsolete.

    It is surely hypocritical of the churches to encourage millions of tourists and pilgrims to visit Jerusalem to see where Jesus Christ was crucified, but not halt this ritualised sacrifice.

    The Catholic priest in Taybeh assured me that he himself did not take part in the sacrificial rituals, but neither did he condemn them.

    “The meat is distributed to the poor and to our old people’s home. It is a tradition,” he added.

    Having been educated in a Church of England school, I was frankly horrified after climbing up a wide flight of steps to enter the portico, nave, side chapels and a cruciform baptistery with a font. I was confronted by bloodied handprints and crosses smudged on the walls. This ruined church built by the Byzantines and rebuilt by the Crusaders is fitted out for ritual sacrifice. Indeed, I nearly hit my head on dangling iron chains with hooks suspended from an arch under a large unlit neon Cross.

    Lambs are hung on these chains so their blood drains over the floor of the church. In the front of this arch is a large raised wooden chopping board where the necks of live sheep are cut. Nearby are three small statues of the Virgin Mary resting in a corner, and a candle and incense votive stand.

    “The bloody handprints are made by the Christians who have taken part in the sacrifice,” explained Dr. Ali Qleibo, a Palestinian anthropologist, who has studied Canaanite sanctuaries and modern Christian sacrifice.

    “People dip their hands right into the carcass of al-thabihah [the sacrificial lamb]. When I came to Taybeh in early October, the entire threshold of the church was flooded with fresh blood.”

    Perplexed by what I see as a non-Christian practice, I asked David Khoury, the local mayor, who runs the famous Taybeh Brewery, what is done to reduce the stress and pain of these animals.

    Tradition, it seems, takes priority over humane slaughtering practices. As in Halal butchery, a deep incision is made through the throat, so the carotid artery is slashed and blood pours out rapidly!

    “The sheep are always facing east when a sharp knife goes through their necks,” David Khoury explained.

    “Sometimes sacrifices are offered as gratitude for the birth of a healthy child, help with a relation surviving a deadly illness or a major operation, or thanks for survival from a car accident.”

    During the killing, Christian prayers are offered in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost and accompanied by entreaties to al-Khader (Saint George) to act as an intermediary!

    Dr. Ali Qleibo, although a Muslim himself, insists that Christian blood-sacrifice cannot be explained away as a Muslim influence:

    “Blood sacrifice was an important part of the ancient Canaanite religion and numerous Pagan cults. Semitic blood sacrifices have persisted.”

    As I left modern-day Taybeh, I recalled that it was the Biblical town of Ephraim.

    According to the Gospel of John (11:54), Jesus went there after raising Lazarus from the dead.

    Would Jesus approve of the Christian churches turning a blind eye to animal sacrifice here today?

    Or, do they quietly acknowledge how difficult it is to eradicate Paganism?

  4. NO, Christians didn’t sacrifice animals. If you show me anywhere in the New Testament where they did, then I’ll concur. I tell it LIKE IT IS, just as you requested.

    JUDAISM ALSO PRACTICES ANIMAL SACRIFICE..NOT JUST ISLAM…AND DID CHRISTIANS TOO BEFORE? OR WAS IT THAT THEY STOPPED OR SUPPOSEDLY STOPPED SACRIFICES WHEN THEY CONVERTED FROM JEW TO CHRISTIAN? ANYWAYS, YEA TELL IT LIKE IT IS – JEWS AND MUSLIMS BOTH PRACTICE SACRIFICES

    We should all focus on exposing Islam. All other religions are good. Islam is the the only barbaric religion which needs to be eradicated to save Muslims themselves from the real hell in which they are already present. Following Islam is pure hell.

  7. Hey Face_The-Truth,
    I’ve met some idiots, but you’re by far amongst the top ten. You may wonder why I’m lowering my standards down to yours by responding? Well, perhaps it’s the only language you may understand by holding that Islam is peaceful and by saying I don’t know what I’m talking about. Don’t worry, I’m not angry…I’m actually laughing at your ignorance. Get a life, thanks for the laughs, and God bless you!

  8. Face_The_Truth says:

    Islam and Christianism are competitors.

    So, it is natural that, Muslims kill and will kill Christians.

    Mario Alexis Portella is a fraud; a Christian fraud rather.

    So, he does not tell the true history of Christianism in European continent.

    So-called apostles or disciples of Jesus the Nazarene Jew brought refurbished and sanitized version of Judaism to the European continent less than 2000 years ago.

    European Pagan history was obliterated piece by piece by early Christians in order to make room for newly invented “Christianism”.

    Pagan women and girls were raped and forced to wear Christian (i.e., Jewish) burkas.

    Pagan libraries along with all Pagan literatures were incinerated by Christians.

    Pagan statues were defiled, destroyed and dismantled.

    Pagan temples were either destroyed or converted into “Super Holy” Christian churches — all for the purpose of worshipping a dead pathetic Jew from Middle East.

    So, Pagans in Europe had to move away to make a dead pathetic Jew from Middle East being worshipped in every Christian church to this day!

    In essence Christianism is nothing but Jew-worship when, in fact, the Catholic Pope wears Jewish Yarmulke to this day (i.e., as skull-cap).

    Christian “God the Father” is (was) a fiction.

    But, within 300 years of the firm establishment of Christianism in Europe, the Middle East sprouted another diabolical figure named Muhammad the Arabian who wanted the original version of Judaism — not the refurbished and sanitized version of Judaism that European Christians started.

    From that point onward, Christians tried to convert Muslims and Muslims tried to convert Christians for the same basic inherent reason of worshipping fictitious one and only Jewish jealous God named “Jehovah” as Christian “God the Father” and almighty Islamic “Allah”.

    Islam is a religion of killing. For example, Eid is an Islamic festival, and they celebrate this by cutting the throats of millions of animals. They think this pleases God. Pure evil mentality.

    Those violent and vicious jihad –minded Muslims in their murderous persecution of Christians, as in this case in Nigeria, aren’t really going to get away with their destruction of Christians. As the apostle Paul had written each individual Christian is actually, in the View of God, a temple of God. For to Christians, it is written in the Bible “Don’t you know that that you yourselves are God’s temple and that God’s Spirit dwells in your midst? If anyone destroys God’s Temple, God will destroy that person; for God’s temple is sacred, and you together are that temple.” First Corinthians 3:16,17. [N.I.V.] As in “A man reaps what he sows.” Galatians 6:7.
