Letter: We are worse than heathens

Published: June 12, 2024, 6:00am

When God gave His Commandments and laws to His chosen people, the Israelites, God told them, as recorded in Leviticus 20:2: “Whoever . . . gives any of his descendants to Molech (a false god), he shall surely be put to death.” That was one of the ways that the heathen people of that time worshiped their gods, by sacrificing their live children. Now we are doing exactly the same thing by sacrificing our unborn children to the heinous, evil practice of abortion.

When we think of their evil practice of sacrificing children, we wonder how they could be so cruel and uncaring, not realizing that abortion is the same thing. The baby is often conceived while committing adultery, which is another terrible sin. We think we have become so much more civilized, when we are really worse than they were because we should know better.

Hebrews 9:27 tells us, “It is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment.” When we die, if we have not repented of our sins, we will be told the words written in Matthew 25:41, “Depart from Me you cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels.”
