NEW VIDEO: “Herem & Human Sacrifice: Response to Luis & Steve on Isaiah 34”

The 2nd follow-up video to the herem discussion will discuss Isaiah 34 and attemp to refute the claim made by Luis Dizon and Steve (our Christian guests) that verses 6-7 referred to animal sacrifices in Edom (when Edom was supposed to be destroyed by God).

Twitter Tales: The “Herem” and HUMAN SACRIFICE in the Bible

In this thread, I further expand on my video "Herem Warfare in the Bible" with further proof from scholarly sources demonstrating the promotion of HUMAN SACRIFICE, similar to the way it was done by pagan cultures. https://twitter.com/quranandbibleb1/status/1411471409570848768?s=20
