Scripture tells us “There’s nothing new under the sun”. ( Eccl. 1:9 )
The wicked practice of child sacrifice has sadly been occurring for thousands of years. The sacrifice of a child occurred when the people were worshiping at the altars of pagan gods, often fertility gods.
Many societies have practiced this sadistic ritual, including the ancient Aztecs, the Druids, and others.
The Bible tells of horrific acts of child sacrifice to the pagan god “Molech”.
The people wanted the “blessing” of their “god”.
The website “Got Questions” says,
Molech worship was practiced by the Ammonites and Canaanites, who revered Molech as a protecting father figure. Images of Molech were made of bronze, and their outstretched arms were heated red-hot. Living children were then placed into the idol’s hands and died there or were rolled into a fire pit below. Some sources indicate a child might also be “passed through the fire” prior to the actual sacrifice in order to purify or baptize the child. Molech worship occurred in the Hinnom Valley near Jerusalem. Because of this, the valley became associated with the idea of Tophet, or hell (Isaiah 30:33; Jeremiah 19:12; Mark 9:45).
God prohibited Israel from child sacrifice in general and Molech worship in particular. Leviticus 20:2-5 states, “Say to the Israelites: ‘Any Israelite or any foreigner residing in Israel who sacrifices any of his children to Molech is to be put to death. The members of the community are to stone him. I myself will set my face against him and will cut him off from his people; for by sacrificing his children to Molek, he has defiled my sanctuary and profaned my holy name. If the members of the community close their eyes when that man sacrifices one of his children to Molech and if they fail to put him to death, I myself will set my face against him and his family and will cut them off from their people together with all who follow him in prostituting themselves to Molech.’” Many other Old Testament passages affirm God’s zero-tolerance for child sacrifice.”
While we may not be literally putting our children into the fires dedicated to pleasing a false god, there is no doubt we are doing it figuratively.
Parents today are offering up their children to the god of this age, destroying their minds, souls, and bodies. It is something that I and many others cannot fathom doing. They are exposing their little ones to sexual deviancy, putting images and experiences into their innocent minds that will warp them in such ways that the damage may never be able to be undone. They laugh and smile at their little boys dressing up in evening gowns and full make up and wigs. They applaud depraved, twisted men who want to read their children stories. When did it become something acceptable and not a jail-able offense for a parent to expose their children to such abuse? So much for a “civilized” society.
In scripture, as we read above, God takes the sacrifice of children so seriously that anyone associated with the practice was to be put to death. So don’t believe that those who participate in the wickedness we see today will not be held accountable. ( and I don’t even include the atrocities of abortion and allowing children to be mutilated to change their genders in this discussion )
My heart breaks when I continually see these stories of our most innocent being offered up on the Satanic altar of aberrant sexual worship, just as they were thousands of years ago. It’s not enough for parents to yield to their own misplaced lusts. Now they include their small children in their sick “games”, and are laughing and “celebrating” all the way to hell. What does it say about us as a society when someone the likes of Ru Paul is a beloved American celebrity?
Deuteronomy 22:5 says ,
“A woman shall not wear a man’s clothing, nor shall a man put on a woman’s clothing; for whoever does these things is an abomination to the LORD your God.”
Our world is spiraling down such a depraved road. I’m sure it’s something that none of us could have imagined coming to such a disturbing fruition. But it’s a road that has been traveled for millennia, and Satan has been the tour guide for the evil ride that millions have bought a ticket for. It’s a road to perdition, and the people on it desperately need the light of Christ to shine into the darkness of the world they are in, a world in which the enemy has them so deceived they actually believe there is no harm in what they are doing.
Please pray for the parents caught up in this web of depravity. Pray for the children to be protected. Pray for the rescue of those in desperate need of rescue, for we were also once in darkness in need of a Savior. There is no person so far gone that they cannot be redeemed. The Apostle Paul gives us hope when he said in 1 Corinthians 6,
“Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived; neither the sexually immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals, 10 nor thieves, nor the greedy, nor those habitually drunk, nor verbal abusers, nor swindlers, will inherit the kingdom of God. 11 Such were some of you; but you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and in the Spirit of our God.”
The only hope for any of us is Jesus. He is the light we so desperately need in this dark world.
