God says to sacrifice burnt offerings as “an aroma pleasing to the LORD” dozens of times in the Old Testament (Numbers 29:8 for example).
We no longer have to sacrifice animals under the New Covenant, but Romans 12:1 tells us to “offer [our] bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God.”
So if sacrifices give off a pleasing aroma, and we are supposed to be a living sacrifice, that means we should smell good, right?
Wear deodorant. Take a shower.
For God’s sake.
