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.

A great sadness fills my heart as stories emerge of crimes against children within church and charitable institutions. Places of safety became playing fields of servants of Moleck. Didn’t such perpetrators read, know or believe the Scriptures.  Didn’t they take notice of what Jesus said ‘If anyone of you put a stumbling block before one of these little ones who believe in me, it would be better for you if a great millstone were fastened around your neck and you were drowned in the depth of the sea. Woe to the world because of stumbling blocks! Occasions for stumbling are bound to come, but woe to the one by whom the stumbling block comes!’ (Matthew 18:6-7)

Molech is a front name for the Devil and his demons according to 1 Corinthians 10:14, 19-22. He is the god of this world, the usurper and his hallmark is death, disintegration, despair and dissolution. Behind many high sounding words to justify their actions and beliefs is the smile of Satan. Sure, there will be certain occasions on medical and life saving grounds an abortion procedure is necessary. However when it is used for gender selection, a form of contraceptive or life style convenience it becomes a worship at the shrine of Moleck.

Can such devotees be forgiven? Yes! That is the grace of God and the power of the Cross. Can they rise above their past? Yes! That’s the Mercy and healing strength of the risen Lord Jesus. What is required is a sense of shame leading to repentance; a realisation of violating the Creator’s gift of life; A heartfelt cry to the Lord Jesus to save, redeem, cleanse, forgive. His promise is that all who call out to Him will be heard.  Failure to cry out creates a hardening heart.  All that awaits is The Lord God’s condemnation.

  1. Hi Ray! I found your blog very interesting as I'm researching a possible connection between the worship of Molech and the paedophile act. I'm interested in your statement "Every paedophile is its devotee." Can you recommend any reading material that might help me at all? Many thanks Freya Pickard

  2. Freya, Thanks for your request. I assume you have or will cross reference the Biblical accounts of this idol worship. Some years ago I obtained information on idols from Brittanica Encyclopeadia. How to access that today I guess would be on line. There are some good Bible commentaries/dictionaries which can be helpful. May I try and get back to you asap.
    The Bible is my primary source. It says a lot about God's care for Children and His warning against abusing them. I've written a little Devotional Meditation on Children - God's Special Interest' its available in Christian bookshops, from the Publisher in Brisbane (Even Before Publishing) or myself.

    Thanks again. Will try and look up some more info. for you.
