Anciently little children were offered to pagan deities, being burned alive upon an altar. Moloch was one such god. The idol, which had arms to cradle the small child, was super heated with fire. Meanwhile music was being played in a fast hypnotic beat, louder and louder so that when they put the live child in the super-heated cradling arms of the idol, the screams would be somewhat drowned out by the noise of the music.
Today the god is Convenience and the altars are actually in professional medical rooms across the United States of America, which is considered, albeit less and less, a Christian nation, and across the globe.
In the USA approximately 1.37 million babies are destroyed by their mothers every year. This breaks down to roughly 3753 per day, 156 per hour and between 2.5 to 3 babies murdered every minute, in the United States of America.
Internationally 42 Million babies per year are murdered inside their mother’s womb. This breaks down to about 115,000 per day, 4,800 per hour, 80 per minute, 1.33 per second.
Astounding! Yet, when the world suffers earthquakes, weather disasters, disease outbreaks and other problems, many ask, “If there is a God, why does He let these things happen to us?” But logically, and truly, it seems we should be asking, “With the way we treat each other and murder our own little unborn babies, so our lifestyles aren’t cramped, why is God going so easy on us?”
The hand writing is on the wall…. God will not be mocked (Gal 6:7). He is the Defender of the innocent and He will bring judgment upon any nation that practices such abomination (Lev 26:14-16). Especially if that nation labels itself a Christian nation (Ps 140:12; Jer 7:8-10; 30:12-15).
