Eat Flesh, Drink Blood: REVENGE & THE COUNT = JUSTICE?: "What is ultimate justice? What does it mean to be just? Can humans make justice decisions? How do we decide what makes right a wrong?"

Check out the link above. I spend hours on hours doing research & it is amazing how many have such strong beliefs concerning Eating Flesh Drinking Blood. From all views whether religious or not there are thousands & thousands of opinions. It is amazing the stories I read on cannibalism, people destroying and tearing apart one another inside and out. From emotions to exterior flesh humans tend to be ripping at each other.

...Should you not know justice?You who hate good and love evil;who tear the skin from my people and the flesh from their bones who eat people's flesh strip off their skin and break their bones in pieces;Who chop them up like meat for the panlike flesh for the pot? Micah 3:1b-3
This is the consequence of eating of the wrong flesh and drinking the wrong blood. Loving evil and hating good...Jesus brings justice. Food for thought?Dan
Justice...Makes me think of The Count of Monte Christo by Alexandre Dumas. It is often considered, along with The Three Musketeers, Dumas' most popular work & among the highest selling books of all time. The story takes place in France, Italy, islands in the Mediterranean and the Levant during the historical events of 1815–1838 (from just before the Hundred Days through the reign of Louis-Philippe of France). The historical setting is a fundamental element of the book. It is primarily concerned with themes of hope, justice, vengeance, mercy, forgiveness and death, and is told in the style of an adventure story.The main character was wronged by his best friend and felt wronged by the people he was surrounded by. Edmond Dantès, a dashing 19-year-old sailor aboard the ship Pharaon, returns home to Marseille. He is excited to be reunited with his family and friends, and eager to marry his fiancée, the gorgeous Catalan Mercédès. He is also proud of his recent promotion to captain. At the same time, he is sad due to the recent death of his friend Captain Leclère, his predecessor. Captain Leclère, a supporter of the now exiled Napoléon, had charged Dantès on his deathbed to deliver a package to former Grand Marshal Maréchal Bertrand, who had been exiled to the isle of Elba. During the Pharaon's stop at Elba, Dantès spoke to Napoléon himself, who asked the sailor to deliver a confidential letter to a man in Paris. Edmond's wonderful fortune creates jealousy in those closest to him. His promotion to captain angers the ship's purser, Danglars; his gain stuns his neighbor, the impoverished tailor Caderousse; his relationship with Mercédès inspires the jealousy of her cousin Fernand Mondego, who wants Mercédès all his own. Danglars scribes an anonymous letter to the crown prosecutor accusing Dantès of being a Bonapartist traitor. Inflaming his jealousy, he instigates Fernand to send the letter, while Caderousse looks on in a drunken stupor, his slurred words goading on the others and revealing his true feelings of jealousy.Villefort, the deputy crown prosecutor in Marseille, takes on the duty of investigating the matter on Dantès' wedding day and on the day of his own betrothal to Renée de Saint-Meran; he indeed finds an incriminating letter. Dantès knows nothing of its contents, only that he was asked to deliver it. Although at first sympathetic to Dantès' case, when Villefort questions Dantès as to where and to whom the letter was to be delivered, he discovers to his horror that it is addressed to his own father, Noirtier de Villefort, a well known Bonapartist. Due to the political climate created by the restoration of King Louis XVIII, Villefort wants to distance himself from his Bonapartist father. The deputy crown prosecutor burns the letter, which has the potential to fatally hinder his own success. Although Villefort would rather not imprison an innocent man, he ultimately chooses to save his political career rather than properly exercise justice and condemns Dantès to life imprisonment in the island prison of the Château d'If, using his knowledge of the letter's contents to advance himself and his career at the court of Louis XVIII.A sentence of Life IMPRISONMENT! He is innocent! How would this make you feel? I can’t imagine what he went through. The book describes the immense struggle of disillusionment and then depression leading to anger and ultimately a plot of revenge. How destructive humans can be one to another. This is just one example of the eating of flesh and the drinking of blood.

We wanted to share with you up front a comment that has been posted by a writer out of Alberta Canada.
I got into something of a dust-up with some non-denominational types over the issue of the Old Covenant and the Church's teaching that the Old Covenant between God and the Jewish people is fixed and irrevocable, and that the Jewish people who live in that covenant offer up a response to God as well.Essentially, it's a teaching that the salvation Christ brings extends also to the Jews, the first to hear the Word of God, by means of the Old Covenant and the law of Moses. I'm sure the good Reader can see why such an idea would trigger a good dust-up with those who take a rather simpler view of the Christian faith.Now, the Reader can relax a bit: I'm not going to go into a lengthy explanation of the Catholic position today. But I wanted to remark on something I tripped over on my stroll through the blogs this morning, which I think is relevant.At the end of a post that begins with a discussion of the tripartite division of the Temple, and how this relates to Mount Sinai, Michael Barber notes that there is a certain parallelism in the words Moses uses in bestowing the Old Covenant on the people, and the words that Christ uses in giving the New Covenant in His blood:Key to all of this is the covenant ratification ceremony of Exodus 24--a passage Jesus' likely alludes to at the Last Supper:Mark 14:23: "And he took a cup, and when he had given thanks he gave it to them, and they all drank of it.  And he said to them, "This is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many" (cf. Matt 26:28).Exod 24:8: "And Moses took the blood and threw it upon the people, and said, "Behold the blood of the covenant which the Lord has made with you in accordance with all these words." [Targum Pseudo-Jonathan on this verse reads, "This is the blood of the covenant"].Much could be said here [wait for my dissertation!], but suffice it to say, if Jesus is linking the Eucharist with Exodus 24 the implications are huge.If the Sinai experience was a Temple experience in which God's presence came to be with His people, how much more real is God's presence with His people in the Eucharistic celebration?The short answer would be: very real, perhaps even terrifyingly real. I previously discussed the institution of the Eucharist by Christ, and His revelation in the breaking of the bread, from a purely Scriptural point of view, and would suggest to the Reader that it is beyond doubt that Christ does literally become present in the bread and wine in the Mass. It's still a bold declaration of faith to say so, but Scripture supports the conjecture.Some Catholics probably also understand the Eucharist as a re-participation in the New Covenant that Christ instituted at His Last Supper. But perhaps there is a deeper significance, one that relates the New Covenant back to the old, and thus makes the Eucharist a re-participation in that older promise between God and man as well.

What do you think Jesus meant when he said to eat of his flesh and drink of his blood?
Thursday, June 12, 2008
It’s intriguing, that someone would want to know the meaning of flesh eating syndromes। There are so many.
Daily drudgery of life can sometimes get to the core.
But there are also inquisitive humans out there that desire going deeper…methodically speaking.
For instance, what does Jesus mean when he asks followers to eat my flesh, drink my blood?
Is he calling his followers to be cannibals?
Of course I have my own thoughts & opinion on this but right now I am more interested in hearing yours.
So there you are…today’s bullet directed at YOU! What are your thoughts?
Whether a Christ follower or not, Atheist, Bohemian, Buddhist, Quaker…Pentecostal you name it.
What does Jesus mean when he said ‘eat my flesh, drink my blood?’
