I don’t know how I missed this, but when I saw it I had to update Talking Point #33. The insensate worship of a false god is so strong in Islam that the men even go so far as to offer the blood of their own children each year in the festival of Ashura wherein they cut themselves and small children to commemorate Imam Hussein (see Talking Point #33 for more details). I want to warn you that the video below is graphic and involves cutting of small children…view at your own risk as it is not pretty. Nothing about Satan is good.
How sick does a father have to be to do something like this to a child? My Father, THE Father, offered His Son for me once and for all so that we would never have to do this! In fact, from the beginning of time, God (of the Bible) ordered men not to do things like this. Let’s read some more Scripture.
First, recall the name of the festival: Ashura. It sounds eerily similar to the Asherah mentioned in the Bible in Exodus 34:13, Deuteronomy 7:5, Deuteronomy 12:3, Deuteronomy 16:21, Judges 3:7, Judges 6:25-30, 1st Kings 14:15, 1st Kings 14:23, 1st Kings 15:13, 1st Kings 16:33, 1st Kings 18:19, 2nd Kings 13:6, , 2nd Chronicles 14:3, Isaiah 17:8, and Micah 5:14 (and many more places left out for the sake of space and time). The worship of Asherah was so prevalent that God (of the Bible) had to mention and warn against it several times. Way to go Islam…create a festival named Ashurah. Sure, you worship the same God (sarcasm).
Second, let’s address what these sick people are doing with their children. God (of the Bible) has a great lack of respect for those who would offer their children to other gods.
“And thou shalt not let any of thy seed pass through the fire to Molech, neither shalt thou profane the name of thy God: I am the LORD.”
Leviticus 18:21 (KJV)
“Do not permit any of your children to be offered as a sacrifice to Molech, for you must not bring shame on the name of your God. I am the LORD.”
Leviticus 18:21 (NLT)
I tend to like the New Living Translation better as it blatantly says what is happening here – those doing this with their children are bringing shame on the Name of God (of the Bible). In other words, it disgusts Him! He never thought to do something like this and certainly never ordered it. I think I read that in the Bible…oh yeah, here it is:
“They have built pagan shrines to Baal in the valley of Ben-Hinnom, and there they sacrifice their sons and daughters to Molech. I have never commanded such a horrible deed; it never even crossed My mind to command such a thing. What an incredible evil, causing Judah to sin so greatly!”
So how is it that men, Christian men nonetheless, can say that the two gods are the same? The god of Islam is applauding as men cut and harm their own children to shed their innocent blood in the worship of evil and The God of the Bible says such evil never even entered into His mind. This is Satanic in nature and there is no comparison or even a slight resemblance in the offerings of this kind of worship…Yehovah God of the Bible did not command this, therefore those doing it are worshipping another god, and to their own destruction at that.
There is a great deal more in the Bible about offering children and shedding their blood in favor of false gods and idol worship. The mind of man is evil and Islamists are being led around like a dog on a leash by a black rock god in Mecca. This is not of God (of the Bible) and…
Jesus is NOT in the Quran!
