Why is Paul still giving offerings?

By Sami Zaatari



Christians tell us that when Jesus died, animal sacrifices and all offerings for purification of sin was no longer needed since Jesus was the perfect sacrifice and completed it. However when we read the New Testament, specifically the book of Acts, we see that Paul was still giving offerings!


Acts 21:25-26

25 As touching the Gentiles which believe, we have written and concluded that they observe no such thing, save only that they keep themselves from things offered to idols, and from blood, and from strangled, and from fornication. 26 Then Paul took the men, and the next day purifying himself with them entered into the temple, to signify the accomplishment of the days of purification, until that an offering should be offered for every one of them.

So why was Paul still carrying out offerings if Jesus was the perfect sacrifice? Either he didn't believe in this doctrine Christians preach of today, or he was mere hypocrite, your choice, either way the Christian loses.

And Allah Knows Best
