The situation above has to do with the Israelites worshiping a false god named 'Molech'. I still can't understand why anyone would worship a god like this, but there is a little bit of enlightenment on this if you were to have been born into a family who practices Satanic Ritual Abuse.
Those who practice SRA appear to have no emotions. They can sacrifice their children and not even remember what happened to their child. Why is this? It is because they have been made mentally ill by their parents, who were made mentally ill by their parents, and so on. They have a mental illness that causes them to blank out of consciousness and to live out their lives in another mental state, which isn't aware of what is going on. This condition is also known as Dissociative Identity Disorder, or D.I.D. (It used to be called M.P.D). It happens to children when they are traumatized at an early age. Their minds are not able to handle the trauma, so, their conscious part of their mind basically goes blank, and the subconscious part of their mind takes over. They may live the rest of their lives in this subconscious state and unless they are made aware of it and are willing to get help in working through it, they will stay in that state of mind, most probably.
With D.I.D., unless the person has gone through treatment, the subconscious personalities will not even know that each one exists. In other words, the subconscious parts of the person that are active, do not know each other. But there is help for this, and this would be a whole other topic for another time.
Going back to Molech, I simply can't understand how a person could do that to their own child, or even to any child.
Molech was a terrible looking statue, and the parent would bring the small child or infant to this statue. The statue had a grin on its face and the parents would place the child on the arms of the statue. There was a fire inside the statue and it would burn the child up. If I understand the story correctly, there was a time when this took place in the Valley of Hinnom.
The people would make a lot of loud noise to try to drown out the screams of the children. I still can't imagine what it was that this false god offered that would be worth sacrificing your child in such a horrible way. Again, I think that these parents were probably mentally ill, due to whatever their parents did to them, and what their grandparents did to their parents, and so on.
I am sure that the motive could have been fear. If a person who is living today, is born into a family that practices Satanic Ritual Abuse, their motive for what they are doing is simply fear. If a person tries to escape from such a family, they will be killed if they are found. If they are not found, they have had curses put on them to make them homeless of unable to work. This is with the hope that they will have to depend upon their families who are into Satanic Ritual Abuse and they will have no other place to go to, in order to survive. Many end up committing suicide because they see no other way out.
Today, many are still practicing Satanic Ritual Abuse. They will remain hidden simply because Satan has power. God's power is greater, and we can have God's power in our lives if we know Him, through His Son, Jesus Christ. The Bible says that when Jesus died for our sins, many things happened. One of those things is that the Powers of Darkness were disarmed. Of course, the devil has not been sent to hell yet, but he still roams the earth trying to suck up anyone who is not willing to listen to what God says. If we do not listen to the truth, by default, we will listen to the lies of the devil, and we will believe them.
Because many have not responded to the Gospel yet, by placing their trust in Jesus Christ for their salvation, and leaving their lives of sin behind, we do not have God's power to defeat the devil. But it doesn't have to be this way. We can turn to God and trust in Him. What we cannot do, is to live our selfish lives, and at the same time, have God on our side. If we regard sin in our hearts, and want to keep it, God will not help us.
In this time period we live in, we still have people who are murdering their children. But now, the process of murder is called, "Abortion". Children get pregnant. Moms or dads take them down to murder their babies. Many more children have died because of being murdered this way, than people who died in the Holocaust, as terrible as that was.
With all the exposure of what really takes place during an abortion, it would seem like some of us would wake up. I mean, no one would really want to kill their child like that, would they?
There's this precious little life and this baby moving around, yet the mom or the baby's dad wants this baby's life to end. Although this is not the answer to the situation, there are other options people can take, who do not want to keep the baby.
There are adoption agencies around. Many people who can't have children would gladly take in a baby who wasn't wanted.
The answer to an unwanted pregnancy is not to kill the person. You will be charged with murder on Judgment Day. The so called 'doctor' who performs the abortion will be charged with multiple murders on That Day. How could a person even trust a doctor who is comfortable with murdering?
Normal people do not kill their children. Normal people have feelings and emotions that would prevent him or her from killing children.
There are two reasons (that I know of) which would cause a person to not have emotions like love. One of them is that the person is perverted. A person becomes perverted by continually hardening their hearts against God. God shows Himself to us by His Spirit, through His word. If a person continually rejects that, and believes and embraces the lies of the Enemy, he or she will develop a hardened heart. If the heart becomes so hard, then the conscious part of the person seems to disappear. Then God will turn the person over to his perversity, and the person will live in a 'world of lies'. He or she will believe the lies about God rather than what God says about Himself. Normal emotions people have will be gone in this person. See Romans 1 for a more extensive description.
The other reason people might not have emotions is what I covered above. They could be victims of Satanic Ritual Abuse, or may have been traumatized as a child. The conscious part of them goes to sleep, sometimes permanently, and it appears that the person does not have feelings or emotions anymore. He has blanked them out when his conscious part fell asleep. If a person is continually traumatized, he or she may never recover.
People used to offer their children to a statue that
would burn up their children. Today we offer
children to doctors to be cut up by them.
The thief comes to steal, kill, and destroy, but Jesus came that we would have a full life. The devil is the thief. He is behind all our selfishness and greed, as well as murders.
