THERE IS NO COMMENSALISM FOR ATONEMENT 

The Civil Writer Magazine

Commensalism, which literally means "to eat at the same table". In Christianity, salvation is the saving of human beings from sin and its consequences. According to Christian belief,

salvation is made possible by the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus, which in the context of salvation is referred to as "atonement". Jews however had their own atonement by God.

Leviticus 16:29 mandates establishment of this holy day on the 10th day of the 7th month as the day of atonement for sins. It calls it the Sabbath of Sabbaths and a day upon which one must afflict one's soul.

What happened to the souls of gentiles and the stranger (mix multitude) who lived among the children of Israel but didn't participate in the atonement. Are they also considered lost.

Jesus was commissioned to gather the lost sheep of Israel, Matt 15:24 But he answered and said, I am not sent but unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel. There was no commensalism

(benefit) for the mix multitude to atone with the children of Israel.

How can the atonement for a sheep benefit a cow. How can cows receive atonement not designed for them? God didn't commission Jesus to save the cows with the sheep?
