Abortion, Worship, and Child Sacrifice
This week marked the 38th anniversary of Roe v. Wade. It also marked 58 million abortions in the United States since the 1973 ruling to legalize abortion. Think on that number for just a moment. When over 3,000 people were killed on 9/11, it fundamentally changed our nation. The two towers of the World Trade Center in New York City came down and lives were snuffed out. The outrage, the fear, the anger. Yet, none of this is present as innocent lives are snuffed out each and every day in this country. In New York City alone, the focal point of 9/11, 246 additional lives are wiped out…every day. New York City has, in fact, become the abortion capital of the world with over 90,000 abortions every year.
Six million Jews are slaughtered in World War 2 and we call it a Holocaust. So what do we call 58 million lives destroyed? We call it legal. I cannot help but think about the cost we are paying as a nation, a cost of which we are unaware. Who exactly have we killed? How many leaders, innovators, musicians, etc.? How many people who would have / could have enriched your life? Our country is $14.3 trillion in debt. We need more money. Where does money to run the government come from? Taxpayers. People. How much tax revenue has been destroyed as abortion has sought to preserve a woman’s right to her own body? I would submit that by killing our children we are killing our nation.
In the Old Testament, people commonly worshiped idols. One of these idol gods was Molech. He was the god of child sacrifice. I know it is difficult to imagine, but people, parents, would take their little children, their own flesh and blood, and lay them on the altar of Molech. They would bind them and then cut them. And then when the child was dead, they would burn the body in the fires of Gehenna. They made this sacrifice of their children all for the promise of a better life, a blessed life, from Molech.
In our sanitized and superior minded piety of the 21st century we look at such a thing as the worship of Molech, and its child sacrifice, as barbaric and appalling. We have evolved and are enlightened. Thank God we no longer participate in such a debased cultural superstition. Oh, but we do. Worship of Molech is alive and well today. In fact, we have gone far beyond anything the ancients concocted. We have perfected the process. We may not call him Molech. We may instead call him Doctor. The altar has now become the abortion table, and while our children, our own flesh and blood, are still bound by the womb, we cut them. Then we take the remains and burn them in to ash. All in the name of a promise; a promise of a better life, a blessed, life without the burden of a child.
Oh, yes, Molech is alive and well in the United States of America. Happy anniversary.
