Abortion: The Torture and Murder of God’s Children

And they have built the high places of Tophet, which is in the valley of the son of Hinnom, to burn their sons and their daughters in the fire; which I commanded them not, neither came it into my heart.

Jeremiah 7:31 (emphasis added)

“Tophet” was a play on the word for “fireplace” or “oven,” changed slightly to mean “shame.” In the valley of the son of Hinnom not only was Asherah worshiped, but the false god Molech was, as well. The worship of Molech involved sacrificing children by burning them alive. During this bleak period of Judah’s history, the people who were ostensibly the people of Yahweh, would actually travel out to the valley of Hinnom, just south of Jerusalem, and take their unwanted children – possibly conceived through fornication with prostitutes during pagan rituals to Asherah or Baal – and burn them as a sacrifice to Molech, so that they would have better crops. It was an ancient form of using “environmentalism” as a pretext for abortion. What it really did was allow fornication (in the minds of the practitioners) without consequences. Of course, God’s reality was far different.

Therefore, behold, the days come, saith the Lord, that it shall no more be called Tophet, nor the valley of the son of Hinnom, but the valley of slaughter: for they shall bury in Tophet, till there be no place.

Jeremiah 7:32

God’s justice would come in the form of an invading army, and so many people would be killed in this valley that there wouldn’t be enough room to bury them all. The “Valley of Hinnom,” which Jesus would centuries later call “Gehenna,” was used by Him as an analogy for hell. Because of the atrocities committed there, it became a cursed place used as the city’s garbage dump, where fires burned continually and worms never died, because they never ran out of garbage to eat.
