The Idolatry of Abortion and the #Gosnell Butcher Shop

The name Kermit has always held a fondness in my heart, until yesterday. Yesterday the name turned into an ugly, sadistic, demonic & murderous name. I read an absurd & repulsive article that a few friends shared with me on Twitter and Facebook. I was sickened, saddened and angered much over the news, of a murderer who was butchering babies. I encourage you to read this for yourself.  This man made millions of dollars over the years by murder!

Don’t expect to watch the news to learn much about this trial. Up until now the media has been silent. They have ignored this atrocity from being reported. Why? I can speculate, but I won’t. I don’t know the motives of individuals and their hidden agenda. I find it hard to believe that even those who are in favor of abortion can support such barbaric actions.  Not only did this man perform “legal” abortions, he also performed many illegal ones! He killed babies that survived botched abortions by dismembering their heads and limbs!

Abortion became legal in the legendary 1973 Supreme Court case Roe vs. Wade. Norma McCorvey , the woman who was at the forefront of this court case, no longer supports abortion. Forty years has passed and an estimated 50+ million babies have been murdered. 50+ million babies who have never been given the “freedom” their parent(s) had to kill them. 50+ million lives taken in the name of “freedom”. What kind of “freedom” is that? What kind of freedom willingly executes the life of a baby so that your life can be better? That is a false freedom. That is slavery! That is a freedom that is driven by selfishness, greed and a depraved heart.

Our modern society was not the first to kill our children legally. Unfortunately, we have become the generation that made its despicable acts popular. In the Old Testament there were groups of people (including Israelites) who worshipped a false god named Molech. The worshippers of Molech sacrificed their own children to this false god. This was an egregious offense to God. The Lord commanded Israel to not do it!

1722_moloch2The Christian Apologetics and Research Ministry (CARM) says the following about Molech. “One of the practices of the cult that worshipped Moloch was to sacrifice their children.   Of course, this was forbidden by God’s word: Lev. 18:21 says, “Neither shall you give any of your offspring to offer them to Molech, nor shall you profane the name of your God; I am the Lord.”  (See also Lev. 18:2120:2-52 Kings. 23:10Jer. 32:35).”

CARM continues by saying,  “The ancients would heat this idol up with fire until it was glowing, then they would take their newborn babies, place them on the arms of the idol, and watch them burn to death.  I can’t help but compare today’s abortion massacre to the sacrifice of children by these ancient pagans.  In both, innocent life is destroyed for the gain of the parent.”

Thousands of years later the human heart remains desperately wicked! I’m sure that those who are in favor of abortion do not actually worship a god named Molech in 2013. However, they are still worshipping an idol. They have  just renamed their idolatry in the name of freedom, rights and equality. It is selfish and sinful.

Join me today in raising your voice for the unborn!  Demand justice for Kermit Gosnell, and pray that our country wakes up to the horror of abortion! Pray today for the many women who are deciding on having an abortion performed. Instead of just praying and having your voice be heard, love them!  Don’t hate these women – love them in Jesus’ name! Share Jesus and the gospel! May God give us the grace to have justice, mercy and compassion to these precious ones.  The only pro-choice that honors God is to leave the choice to Him.

There are many excellent articles and blog posts being written today on this subject. I encourage you to educate yourself and spread the message of real freedom! God given Life!
