I woke up this morning with a deep heaviness that has compelled me to write on the topic that the worship of Molech is still very much alive and well in the world generally, and in America specifically. As you may remember, Molech was the demon deity worshiped by the Canaanites, who required child sacrifice. The First-Born child of a Couple would be place on the red hot arms of a metal idol of Molech and burned alive, for the purpose of financial prosperity for the family and future children. God strictly condemned and forbade His People from participating in this evil act of murdering children (SEE Leviticus 18:21; 20:2-5; 2 Kings 23:10; and Jeremiah 32:35). Imagine the intense unbearable pain that a new-born child must have felt as he/she was laid in the red hot arms of Molech! And imagine the cold evil hearts of a society that could do such a thing, for their personal expediency. And in your imaginings, you have now described the abortion industry in America, the modern-day worship of Molech, for the expediency of a society that desires pleasure, without the price tag. Unfortunately that is American society today, and even more unfortunately, some confessing Christians dismiss this abominable act completely!
As I said, this is NOT a political post, but as we are now in the American election cycle, we have to ask ourselves the question…….”Will we remain silent about the many babies, the most innocent among us, being offered as living sacrifices on the altar of America’s Molech? I have heard good COG people lament over candidates who they believe have character issues that are to some, very unsettling. “They said this thing wrong; they said that in their past!” I get that! But the question that SHOULD dominate our minds when “ALIGNING” ourselves with someone as we approach our American right to vote is…”Does this candidate approve of and promote the horrible sin of child-sacrifice to Molech,…..aka ABORTION?” If they do, then as Christians, and especially as Ministers, we MUST not be aligned with ANYONE, no matter how much we like their promises of financial prosperity or equal treatment for all, who can promote the ungodly evil practice of Child-Sacrifice called ABORTION!
If these precious babies, the most innocent among us, cannot depend upon the Men and Women of God to stand against and preach against this horrible sin, who can they depend on? So, when we, as Americans, are considering who to align with and vote for, will we like the some Christians during the Nazi regime “sing hymns a little louder as the concentration trains went by full of Jews headed for the furnaces” or will we understand that THE litmus test for ANY candidate Republican, Democrat, or Independent MUST be………………”Do they support the worship of America’s Molech and the painful gruesome murder of little babies?” This is my heartfelt Pastoral belief! God bless you all and thank you for serving the Lord and His Kingdom!
