The fact that in Bible times the altar for sacrifice was placed at the entrance to the tabernacle may have signified that something of material sense had to be given up before one could enter the sanctuary of spiritual consciousness, where man communes with God.

Right after Christ Jesus had warned his disciples against violent invective, he said (Matt. 5:23, 24), "If thou bring thy gift to the altar, and there rememberest that thy brother hath ought against thee; leave there thy gift before the altar, and go thy way; first be reconciled to thy brother, and then come and offer thy gift." He was revealing that the holy place is in consciousness and that one cannot become conscious of Love, or God, until he has cleansed his thought of hatred, of either being an enemy or believing that he has one.
