Atonement outside of sacrifice?


Yom Kippur is approaching and is one of the most important holidays of the Hebrew Bible. During ancient times, thoughts of the korban (sacrifice) which was offered on our behalf would be at the forefront of discussion. As we approach the month of Tishri, we should begin our journey with personal reflection and repentance before God. Atonement for sin is a very important spiritual principle and according to the Bible we need a sacrifice in order to receive forgiveness of sins. Without a temple in Jerusalem how does one obtain forgiveness? According to Orthodox Judaism, one only needs to be repentant and offer deeds of loving kindness.  This however stands contrary to what is written in the Word of God which states that it is impossible to make atonement and receive forgiveness of sins without a sacrifice.  God has provided us a way to both receive atonement and forgiveness in his son Yeshua the Messiah.  Click here to read more.

Duane D. Miller received his Ph.D., M.S., and B.S. Degree in Chemical Engineering from The University of Akron Ohio. He is currently a Chemical Engineering Researcher. Duane’s research expertise has focused upon functional materials development for the control, conversion, and release of process gases in Energy production technologies. His R&D interests include computational chemistry, developing novel technologies for converting biomass to fuels and studying their fundamental interactions during the chemical conversion process. His past experience includes sorbent development for pre- and post-combustion CO2 and SO2 capture, selective absorption of H2S from methane streams, O2 capture for oxy-fuel combustion, photocatalytic reduction of alcohols, NOx reduction catalysis, the development of oxygen carriers to combust fossil fuels (CH4 and coal) for the chemical looping combustion processes, and the extraction of rare earth elements using patent pending sorbents. His research expertise has focused on operando-characterization using Infrared, Raman, and UV-Vis spectroscopy to observe the nature of the catalytic active sites and reaction intermediates under realistic reaction conditions, allowing direct correlation of molecular/electronic structures with catalyst performance during Gas-Solid / Liquid-Solid Adsorption and Photocatalytic Processes with real time online analysis of reaction products using ICP-MS and mass spectrometry. His current work involves a multi-disciplinary approach to developing, understanding, and improving the catalytic gasification of coal and methane, high temperature chemical looping combustion, and the catalytic decomposition and gasification of biomass and coal using novel microwave reactor.​ He has been studying the Hebrew Scriptures and the Torah for 20+ years and sharing what he has learned.
