Why the Bible is important to me #8
Appalled, I watch the news and see the sacrifice of children. Crushed, I read the statistics of babies aborted. Shattered, I feel as see the young and vulnerable used as playthings for paedophiles. Speechless I am when seemingly respectful and cultured leaders defend such abominable behaviour. Convinced am I that such behaviour is wrong. How? Because of the authority I believe reveals the mind of the Eternal God on this and other life related matters. This is why the Bible is so important to me.
In Leviticus 18:21 and 20:2-5 is recorded the Creator’s vehemence against and judgement upon such perpetrators. The Lord has ensured His loathing for such behaviour does not become relegated to merely a matter of opinion and cultural relevancy. The Lord says He sets His face against them, will cut them off from the people. Why? Because such acts are contrary to the Holiness of the Creator and the Redeeming purposes of God! It is also an act of commitment to Molech.
Who is Moleck? In that era of Biblical history it was an idol depicting the god of the Ammonites. Such a religion required the sacrifice of the first born in the furnace of its statue. This was meant to guarantee national fruitfulness and prosperity etc. You may imagine such a creature, such a caricature of a god doesn’t exist today. Wrong! Every abortionist worships at its shrine. Every paedophile is its devotee. Every slayer of the innocent is a priest of this abomination.
