They have built the high places of Baal to burn their children in the fire as offerings to Baal—something I did not command or mention, nor did it enter my mind. So beware, the days are coming, declares the Lord, when people will no longer call this place Topheth or the Valley of Ben Hinnom, but the Valley of Slaughter. – Jeremiah 19 v 3-6
Is history repeating itself?
There is a thread of news on the internet in the last couple of years that links some people in the highest levels of influence with ritual child sacrifice.
This seems so unthinkable that I have often placed the story off to the side together with witches on broom sticks, the big bad wolf, and the Brothers Grimm.
Celebrities, royals, international bankers, all the way down to local authorities have been painted with this accusation. Johnny Depp has played the role of Hunter S. Thompson, getting high on adrenochrome, a drug that can only be acquired by terrorizing a child just before killing them, then “harvesting” the substance.
Is this even possible in our era?
In an age when anyone can assert anything online, regardless of truth, I don’t pretend to know. But I do know that if it is true, there is no more certain way to bring on the wrath of God, than to sacrifice children.
