I remember growing up and learning about those savage people who sacrificed children into volcanoes for a bountiful harvest that year. It was evil. It was disgusting. And it was a gruesome picture.
But, I cannot say that this picture is any different than what is going on today. People might not believe they’re sacrificing to a god, but people will destroy the child in their womb so that they don’t have to care for it. People will murder the child in their womb so they can continue to pursue their dreams. People will murder the child in their womb so that they can continue to live the life they want to live free from the responsibility of a child. People will murder the child in their womb in hopes to make more money and keep more to themselves.
So no. No one is throwing children into volcanoes, but I don’t think modern man should snuff at what they did. At least they were honest about what they were doing. People today won’t even call the murder they commit murder. Instead, it’s an abortion. Instead, it’s the termination of a pregnancy.
Let’s call it as it is. The taking of a life for unjust reasons not sanctioned by God is murder. Many women and men today are murderers. And sadly, the world is okay with this new kind of murder, while hypocritically scoffing at that old kind of murder. Which really is the same kind, just disguised in vague terms and cushy words, with white gloves and spectacles. Disguised by grandpa’s who ask if you really want to ruin your life with having a baby?
Sin is sin. I call sin as it is. Murder is murder. Abortion is murder.
