  • As Christians we know that since animal sacrifices and offerings are no longer part of worship, are any sacrifices still required of us today? Yes, indeed. Jesus Christ lived a life of sacrifice in his service to God and finally offered himself in behalf of mankind. Hence, he declared: “If anyone wants to come after me, let him disown himself and pick up his torture stake and continually follow me.” (Matthew 16:24) This means that anyone who wants to become Jesus’ follower must make certain sacrifices. So,Christ suffered and died in the flesh to lead us to God; hence, we no longer live according to fleshly desires so we no longer live for ourselves but sacrifice our lives to do as Jesus did.2 Cor 5:14, 15 (1 Peter 3:18–4:6)

  • You don't want to be "crucified"...that's being tortured. The Latin root of "crucifix" means "to torture."

    I don't think that;s what you meant?
