Heb 9:22 And almost all things are by the law purged with blood; and without shedding of blood is no remission. He does not demand that "all things" are purged with blood. Thus we can find bloodless sacrifices. However, he does demand "without the shedding of blood their is no remission" regardless what UNINSPIRED men may say after the writing of Scripture. NO SHEDDING OF BLOOD NO REMISSION OF SIN. Furthermore, this is stated clearly in a context that directly applies it to the sacrifice of Jesus Christ on Calvary: Heb 9:12 Neither by the blood of goats and calves, but by his own blood he entered in once into the holy place, having obtained eternal redemption for us...14 How much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without spot to God, purge your conscience from dead works to serve the living God?....23 ¶ It was therefore necessary that the patterns of things in the heavens should be purified with these; but the heavenly things themselves with better sacrifices than these. 24 For Christ is not entered into the holy places made with hands, which are the figures of the true; but into heaven itself, now to appear in the presence of God for us: 25 Nor yet that he should offer himself often, as the high priest entereth into the holy place every year with blood of others; 26 For then must he often have suffered since the foundation of the world: but now once in the end of the world hath he appeared to put away sin by the sacrifice of himself. "It was therefore necessary" NO SHEDDING OF BLOOD NO REMISSION OF SIN but there are other reasons it was necessary according to INSPIRED writers - WHY IS IT NECESSARY? Because - Heb 10:19 Having therefore, brethren, boldness to enter into the holiest by the blood of Jesus, Eph 1:7 In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, Col 1:14 In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins: Mr 14:24 And he said unto them, This is my blood of the new testament, which is shed for many. Ro 3:25 Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his blood, Ro 5:9 Much more then, being now justified by his blood, Eph 2:13 But now in Christ Jesus ye who sometimes were far off are made nigh by the blood of Christ. Col 1:20 And, having made peace through the blood of his cross, Heb 13:12 Wherefore Jesus also, that he might sanctify the people with his own blood, suffered without the gate. Heb 13:20 Now the God of peace, that brought again from the dead our Lord Jesus, that great shepherd of the sheep, through the blood of the everlasting covenant, Why should the "blood" of Christ be regarded as "precious" if it was unnecessary to be literally shed? 1 Pe 1:18 Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold, from your vain conversation received by tradition from your fathers; 19 But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot: Do not all those atonement theories that deny the necessity of the shed blood of Christ for remission of sin treat his blood as an "unholy thing"??? Heb 10:29 Of how much sorer punishment, suppose ye, shall he be thought worthy, who hath trodden under foot the Son of God, and hath counted the blood of the covenant, wherewith he was sanctified, an unholy thing, and hath done despite unto the Spirit of grace? Notice, I have not attacked any person. I have said nothing personal about anyone. I have attacked a POSITION. I have simply stated scriptures that deal directly with the "blood" of Christ as an offering on the cross and scriptures that explicitly state why the blood was shed and what that "blood" obtained. These are all writngs by INSPIRED men not UNINSPIRED later traditions of men.
