Foundation Sacrifices

       Recently I was studying the religion of the Canaanites, and stumbled across an interesting fact in Halley’s Bible Handbook concerning a pagan practice known as “foundation sacrifices” …

“Under the debris, in this ‘High Place,’ Macalister found great number of jars containing the remains of children who had been sacrificed to Baal. The whole area proved to be a cemetery for new-born babes.

Another horrible practice was that they called ‘foundation sacrifices.’ When a house was built, a child would be sacrificed, and its body built into the wall, to bring good luck to the rest of the family. Many of these were found in Gezer. They have been found also at Megiddo, Jericho and other places.”

I couldn’t help but recognize the alarming similarities between the Canaanites and Americans today:

  1. Just as the wicked Canaanites, Americans are sacrificing their children to a false god. The Canaanites sacrificed their babies to Baal (their principal god), and to Ashtoreth (Baal’s wife); whereas, American’s are sacrificing their children on the alter of convenience to the god of self.
  2. Just as the Canaanites stored in jars the remains of children who had been sacrificed to Baal, so do Americans store the remains of aborted children in plastic containers (and the body parts and tissues are sold). 
  3. Just as the Canaanites who sacrificed their children, having good intentions (i.e., to bring good luck to the rest of the family), so do Americans justify the murdering of children with good intentions (e.g., "I'll abort this child so I can have a career and make a better life for my other children in the future"). This is the sicko mentality of many women today. Most people don’t do what they do for any particular reason. They do what they WANT to do, and then look for reasons to justify it. There is no justification for taking an innocent child's life. A child inconveniencing it's mother shouldn't be a crime punishable by death.

Abortion is a horrible sin, which God hates. Just as Abel's blood cried out to God from the ground (Genesis 4:10), so does the blood of millions of aborted children in America cry out to God from the grave. Americans are no better than the savage Canaanites. We place our own selfish will over God's Will, and our own law over God's Law. This is sin. 

America's entire legal system centers around the preeminence of it's "Supreme" Courts. Tragically, most of those judges rule in favor of abortion, same-sex marriage, pornography, and other evils condemned by the Bible. Arguably, their ability to judge righteously is questionable. When the Highest Court of a nation sides against God, by ruling in favor of abortion and same-sex marriage, that nation is DOOMED! END

Abortion is Murder!

Please notice that the Holy Bible says “THE BABE LEAPED,” not the fetus...
Luke 1:44, “For, lo, as soon as the voice of thy salutation
sounded in mine ears,
the babe leaped in my womb for joy.”


Black Lives Matter Hypocrites Say Its Okay To Kill Lives In The Womb, But Not On The Street!

“Thou shalt not kill.” ―Exodus 20:13



(In the womb, a 20-30 week baby's ability to experience pain is heightened)

Righteousness exalteth a nation: but sin is a reproach to any people.” —Proverb 14:34

The sad truth is that women who have had abortions are GUILTY of murder. Such women have crossed the line, just as Eve did when she challenged God's Word. God says... Thou shalt not kill; BUT, many women today kill anyway, having no regard for God or His Word. Women who think they are exercising their "rights" by having an abortion are in reality foolishly killing their own baby. Do you realize that a baby is aborted by being sucked into pieces while alive, by a vacuum that is 29 times more powerful than a standard vacuum? For more information, please read Abortion Torture Methods. When a women permits a doctor to kill her baby, she is literally handing her beloved child over to an executioner to be tortured to death in a grotesque, painful, and brutal procedure that rivals the Japanese Unit 731 Labs of WWII. 

On the individual level, there is forgiveness for involvement in the sin of abortion. Through the sacrifice of Jesus Christ, God will justly forgive those who repent and believe the Gospel (1st Corinthians 6:11, “And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God”). God loves you!

“Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations.” —Jeremiah 1:5

What is a Life Worth? (YouTube video)

Please take a look at this YouTube video. It will remind you that every human life is precious and that we can see this truth most clearly through the face of a helpless, innocent baby who can do nothing for us but allow us the opportunity to give ourselves to him in love. It teaches that joy comes through giving oneself to another for their own sake and that authentic joy can be experienced in the midst of difficulties and even amidst tremendous sorrow. Mostly, it will reveal the heroic courage and life affirming witness that is possible for those yielded to and animated by the life of the Holy Spirit. Take a look but make sure you have your Kleenex ready.

The Horror of Abortion!

If God could hear the voice of Abel's blood crying out to Him from the ground (Genesis 4:10), do you suppose God has missed the cries of those 50,000,000 infants who've been butchered in America since 1973?
