Bad Old Molech is alive and well

The bible's earliest books speak of a false god named Molech. Molech worship was cultish worship associated with Ammon, for example, 1 Kings 11:7 speaks of him as "the detestable god of the Ammonites." God warned the Israelites many times not to sacrifice their children to Molech.

"Do not give any of your children to be sacrificed to Molech, for you must not profane the name of your God. I am the LORD." (Leviticus 18:21).

"Say to the Israelites: 'Any Israelite or any alien living in Israel who gives any of his children to Molech must be put to death." (Leviticus 20:2).

"He also defiled Topheth, which is in the valley of the son of Hinnom, that no man might make his son or his daughter pass through the fire for Molech." (2 Kings 23:10).

A huge statue would be constructed with a furnace in the belly of it. The parents would put their child in the belly and a fire would be lit. The child would burn to death. The sacrifice also included sexual rituals. The hope was that the parents would receive wealth and blessing by sacrificing their firstborn to Molech. So the hope was for the parents to obtain some convenience and personal gain.

Of course, the most obvious modern parallel to child sacrifice to Molech is the fire of abortion, which is also a child-sacrifice for the personal convenience of the parents. The child dies in a horrible way, and is sacrificed for spurious reasons. However, I was reading the following article today and another Molech-like sacrifice came to mind, not the least reason because the article itself used the world sacrifice.

"Recent Charges of Sexual Abuse of Children in Hollywood Just Tip of Iceberg, Experts Say"
"If a spate of recent allegations proves true, Hollywood may have a hideous epidemic on its hands. The past two weeks have brought three separate reports of alleged child sexual abuse in the entertainment industry. Feldman, 40, himself a survivor of childhood sexual abuse, unflinchingly warned of the world of pedophiles who are drawn to the entertainment industry last August. "I can tell you that the No. 1 problem in Hollywood was and is and always will be pedophilia,” Feldman told ABC’s Nightline. “That's the biggest problem for children in this industry... It's the big secret.” Another child star from an earlier era agrees that Hollywood has long had a problem with pedophilia. “When I watched that interview, a whole series of names and faces from my history went zooming through my head,” Paul Peterson, 66, star of The Donna Reed Show, a sitcom popular in the 1950s and 60s, and president of A Minor Consideration, tells FOXNews.com."

The article continues with reporting something that is well-known to insiders, which is that any and all Hollywood child actors were at risk from unscrupulous managers, agents, and others bent on molestation. The article discusses how and why this occurs on such a regular basis, so regular, that it is taken as a matter of course that it will occur.

I can't imagine what a cesspit Hollywood is. The products we see on the screen are bad enough, and are the end result of a long process that undoubtedly includes lying, slander, greed, sexual favors, drug use, drunkenness, and adultery, among other sins. Like this sin in the article, and it is a quote, of sacrificing  children to Molech:

"It’s almost a willing sacrifice that many parents are oblivious to – what kind of environment do they think that they’re pushing their kid into?” said Peterson. “The casting couch is a real thing, and sometimes just getting an appointment makes people do desperate things."

A society is judged on their godliness, and the further they fall from His standard, the more they are given over to base desires. (Romans 1:18-24). It they still refuse to repent, their sexual degradation deepens, and they are given over to homosexuality:

"For this reason God gave them over to degrading passions; for their women exchanged the natural function for that which is unnatural, and in the same way also the men abandoned the natural function of the woman and burned in their desire toward one another, men with men committing indecent acts and receiving in their own persons the due penalty of their error." (Romans 1:26-27).

After that, then what? What does it say about a society that not only tolerates but promotes sexual sin, encourages homosexuality, then slides off the cliff into child molestation as a ritual of passage to gain entry to Hollywood? Parents sacrificed their kids to Molech in hopes of wealth, and here in this article we see the same thing. Parents sacrifice their children to the god of pedophilia in hopes of drinking from the cash cow of  Holywood paychecks. Paul shows us the end result of such wanton abandonment of moral scruples. Verse 29-32 goes on by showing us the progression--

"being filled with all unrighteousness, wickedness, greed, evil; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, malice; they are gossips, slanderers, haters of God, insolent, arrogant, boastful, inventors of evil, disobedient to parents, without understanding, untrustworthy, unloving, unmerciful; and although they know the ordinance of God, that those who practice such things are worthy of death, they not only do the same, but also give hearty approval to those who practice them."

Here we see a quote from the same article about not only were some practicing pedophilia and still do to this day, the gave hearty approval to those who did the same, even passing around children in their evil putrid circle:

'“I literally heard that they were ‘passed around,’” Arngrim said. “The word was that they were given drugs and being used for sex. It was awful – these were kids, they weren’t 18 yet. There were all sorts of stories about everyone from their, quote, ‘set guardians’ on down that these two had been sexually abused and were totally being corrupted in every possible way.”

Dr David R. Reagan has a good essay at Rapture Alert entitled "Is homosexuality an end times sign?" When I see articles like the one about the well-known pedophilia in Hollywood, and know that we've descended even further than two consenting adults engaged in sodomy, when our precious children are sacrificed to the greedy god of fame, I just want to cry out, 'How much longer, O Lord?'

  1. One of the main reasons that Disney upsets me so much, is the basic guarantee that no matter how "moral" and "pure" their teen actors and actresses are, they are certain to eventually become immoral.

    Brittany Spears, Lindsey Lohan, Vanessa Hudgens, Miley Cyrus, etc.

    And what it does to the youth who watch their programs is normalize their own decent into immorality. "Everyone's doing it."

    I wouldn't be surprised if these young Hollywood stars were molested as a price for fame. A sort of Faust, where their own parents signed the deal with the Devil.

    There is a lot of information on a website called Vigilant Citizen about Monarch programming that is used on child stars to control them. It is not just about perversion, they use drugs and abuse, and sometimes even possession to control these people. Brittany Spears is a great example of this. I don't know if it is true, but the psychiatric science is there, as it was developed and practiced by our own CIA during the MK-Ultra program. The only question is, is it still being used, and is it used in Hollywood?

    Good post.

  2. Hi Elizabeth:

    This is a really good post. There is another blog called Occultpopagenda.blogspot.com that has this story there as well. It also has news about Hollywood and pop artists, and society in general. There was a specific story from just the other day, Sunday, Dec. 4th listed there about the rape and abuse of a 1 month old baby boy. So sickening and heart renching. How could they???? I do feel so sick when reading this type of info and pray for these precious little ones. I know God's heart has to just break and be filled with indignation. I am so glad that His love is all powerful and will set things straight in His time and I believe that is coming soon, amen! Pedophilia is predominant in our society that it is almost a rare case if you haven't been molested as a child. I thank the Lord for protecting me in this regard and my heart goes out to the victims. It can so warp their mind and ideas of God. Lord help them.

  4. I used to be OBSESSED with Hollywood Celebrities and gossip and would go out of my way to seek out the truth about Hollywood celebs. It was of course gossip but certain types of gossip were consistently repeated and some were sickening and jaw dropping. It's horrible to hear about but I'm honestly not that surprised.

  5. Amy Carmichael was a missionary to India during the early to mid 1900's. Her first work was typical "missionary work" of evangelization, but she soon learned that parents were selling their children to the Hindu temples. These babies and young children were being used sexually in temple 'worship' to the dieties. Over the years Amy and her band of women literally saved hundreds of children from this terrible fate. Her home for children, Dohnavur, is still working as far as I know. Elizabeth Elliot wrote a wonderful biography of Amy called, A Chance to Die. I encourage you to read it.

    I bring this up because this problem is not new in our world. It is deeply ingrained in all societies - even Victorian England had huge problems with pedophilia. It is a hidden problem within religious groups of all sorts, including protestant evangelicals. I can think of several true stories right off the top of my head that would make you sick. It is also a huge, and mostly unknown problem, within Islam (mostly little boys).

    As this sin and evil is coming to light, there are Godly Christian people working to fight agaisnt it, to save (as Amy did) children who are trapped in this evil or are in danger of being forced into it. Just yesterday I read an article in International Justice Mission about a brothel using young, under age girls, being shut down in India. http://www.ijm.org/news/ijm-kolkata-brothel-permanently-closed-entire-community-benefits

    There are groups working within the United States to stop the trafficking of young girls and boys for these purposes here in our own homeland. Check your local church's missions committees to see if they are involved with one in your area or state. If God is truly calling you, please, please, please work to help save more children, here in the US or in a foreign country. You can support financially or in other ways - call, email or visit to find out how you can be involved.

    I do not have first hand knowledge here in the States, but I do know a few young girls in an Eastern European country who were enticed into forced prostitution by the lure of money or being able to leave their home country for a 'better life' in the West. The lives of these girls (now women, if they are still alive) were ruined completely in the brothels of Amsterdam, other European countries and in several Middle Eastern countries (including Israel). There is work being done in several Eastern European countries right now to stop the practice, to help women and young boys/men to escape, to help others to keep from being enticed into it.

    Pray - yes, pray, do not stop praying! - but also DO.

  6. I have always said that Hollywood is Satan's headquarters on Earth-- I believe that is where he is most powerful, and where he spreads his evil and influences the world.

  7. Anonymous I agree that there must be a powerful demon behind Hollywood. As there is a prince of Tyre and Prince of Persia, so must there be a demon of Hollywood...

  8. Hi: this so horrible, you just can't put into words, being a child that came up in foster care in the early to middle 1960's being molested and abuse by the very one's that were suppose to be caring for you. But it was about the almighty dollar. We must pray for pur children. God will help our babies. LORD have mercy on our children, have mercy LORD.
