Molek’s New Name: Abortion

This post is inspired by my reading today.


Leviticus 20:1-5

The Lord said to Moses, 2 “Say to the Israelites: ‘Any Israelite or any foreigner residing in Israel who sacrifices any of his children to Molek is to be put to death. The members of the community are to stone him. 3 I myself will set my face against him and will cut him off from his people; for by sacrificing his children to Molek, he has defiled my sanctuary and profaned my holy name. 4 If the members of the community close their eyes when that man sacrifices one of his children to Molek and if they fail to put him to death, 5 I myself will set my face against him and his family and will cut them off from their people together with all who follow him in prostituting themselves to Molek.

To murder children in Bible times was a capital offense and the murderer received a death sentence. Those laws only applied to the Jewish people when God brought them out of Egypt. For today, it’s not a capital crime to have an abortion but that doesn’t change the fact how God feels about it. In verse 3, the Lord will set His face against anyone who has an abortion and doesn’t repent by turning to Jesus for salvation. Those who don’t repent by killing their unborn child, God will be against that person and will demand an account for their murderous heart.

The false god Molek has popped up in our time with a new name, “Abortion.” Satan always presents to the world the same deadly gift inside with a different looking box and wrap so that you won’t put 2 and 2 together and see what it really is. The Lord clearly said in verse 3 that you are profaning His holy name by aborting your unborn baby. In Isaiah 43:7 it says, “everyone who is called by my name, whom I created for my glory, whom I formed and made.” As believers we carry the name of Jesus hence “Christians” to bring Him glory through obedience and to represent Him to the world so we must hate what He hates and love what He loves. We are here to do His will and to honor Him but if we abort an unborn child you are dishonoring His name because you are going against God’s Word and killing the baby in the womb that He created in His image.

    1. That is a gross misinterpretation. God tested Abraham with His intention of not harming the child but if you would actually read the Bible you wouldn’t use Abraham’s account because it has nothing to do with abortion. Here, please read it Genesis 22.

      1. Your original story has nothing to do with abortion, too. That one speaks only of “out of the womb” children being intentionally sacrificed to a god other than the Christian god.

        As for Abraham, god is pretty specific–kill your son to honor me (a barbaric request regardless of the asker). Abraham had the boy tied up, put him on the alter, and was putting the knife up to kill the boy (I took your advice of the passage number to refresh my memory) when he was told “nah, I was just testing you”. Abraham was ready, willing and able to kill his son to please the lord. If god knows whats inside everyone’s hearts, why does he need acts of devotion like this, and why must it be a child put in harms way? By the way, there is still the sacrifice of a ram in this story. How come god doesn’t expect modern Christians to sacrifice rams anymore?

      2. You said-“Your original story has nothing to do with abortion, too. That one speaks only of “out of the womb” children being intentionally sacrificed to a god other than the Christian god.”

        My original story has everything to do with abortion because regardless if the baby is born or still in his mother’s womb, the baby is alive with a soul. By killing an unborn baby is the same as a born one because both of them are alive, that’s murder.

        You said- “As for Abraham, god is pretty specific–kill your son to honor me (a barbaric request regardless of the asker).”

        A test means to see if a person will obey even though the request is impossible. A test reveals the person’s heart and God was never going to allow Abraham to strike his son Isaac with the knife. Since you are not a believer and are void of the Holy Spirit, you are not able to understand something that is discerned spiritually. That passage if you keep reading Abraham told his son that God will provide the sacrifice before he tied up Isaac. Abraham’s test was a foreshadow of the Lamb of God Jesus Christ who was going to die on the cross for the sins of the world so that whosoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. God was going to punish His Son Jesus and on the third day raise Him from the dead so you won’t have to die in your sins and go to hades, a place of an eternal fire that will never go out.

        To me by you having a problem with my post, tells me either you had an abortion or you know someone close to you that had one. That sin is forgivable if you ask Jesus to be your Lord and Savior and ask Him to forgive you, He will. No one can force you to believe in Jesus Christ, that’s your decision alone to make.
