"honored by the sacrifice of children"

Molech or Moloch: a god of the Ammonites

    "Thou shalt not give of thy seed to cause to pass through the fire for Moloch." Leviticus 18:10

Molech: "A detestable Semitic deity honored by the sacrifice of children, in which they were caused to pass through or into the fire. Palestinian excavations have uncovered evidences of infant skeletons in burial places around heathen shrines. Ammonites revered Molech as a protecting father. Worship of Molech was stringently prohibited by Hebrew law. (Lev. 18:21; 20:1-5) Solomon built an altar to Molech at Tophet in the Valley of Hinnon. Manasseh in his idolatrous orgy also honored this deity. Josiah desecrated the Hinnom Valley altar, but Jehoiakim revived the cult."  Unger's Bible Dictionary by Merrill F. Unger (Chicago: Moody Press, 1957); page 416.

"Moloch was an old Canaanites idol, called by the Phoenicians and Carthaginians Melkarth, Baal-melech, Malcom, and other such names, and related to Baal, a sun-god worshipped, like Kronos and Saturn, by the sacrifice of children. It was represented by a brazen statue, which was hollow and capable of being heated, and formed with a bull's head, and arms stretched out to receive the children to be sacrificed. From the time of Ahaz, children were slain at Jerusalem in the valley of Ben-Hinnom, and then sacrificed by being laid in the heated arms and burned.

"...although, in the times of the later kings, children were actually given up to Moloch and  burned as slain-offerings, even among the Israelites; it by no means follows from this, that 'a passing through to Moloch,' or 'passing through the fire'... signified slaughtering and burning with fire....

"...'causing to pass through fire' denoted primarily going through the fire without burning, a februation, or purification through fire, by which the children were consecrated to Moloch; a kind of fire-baptism, which preceded the sacrificing.... [F]ebruation was practiced among the most different nations without being connected with human sacrifices; and, like most to the idolatrous rites of the heathen, no doubt the worship of Moloch assumed different forms at different times and among different nations."

    Keil-Delitzsch, Commentary on the Old Testament, vol 1, the Pentateuch (Grand Rapids, Eerdmans, 1980), page 416-417

Jewish Encyclopedia
"In the Masoretic text the name is "Molech"; in the Septuagint "Moloch." The earliest mention of Molech is in Lev. xviii. 21, where the Israelite is forbidden to sacrifice any of his children to Molech. Similarly, in Lev. xx. 2-5, it is enacted that a man who sacrifices his seed to Molech shall surely be put to death....
"In I Kings xi. 7 it is said that Solomon built a high place for Molech in the mountain "that is before Jerusalem." The same passage calls Molech an Ammonite deity. ...  In II Kings xxiii. 10 it is stated that one of the practises to which Josiah put a stop by his reform was that of sacrificing children to Molech, and that the place where this form of worship had been practiced was at Topheth, 'in the valley of the children of Hinnom.' This statement is confirmed by Jer. xxxii. 35. ...

Nature of the Worship.

`”Critical View:

"As to the rites which the worshipers of Molech performed, it has sometimes been inferred, from the phrase "pass through the fire to Molech," that children were made to pass between two lines of fire as a kind of consecration or februation; but it is clear from Isa. lvii. 5 and Jer. xix. 5 that the children were killed and burned. The whole point of the offering consisted, therefore, in the fact that it was a human sacrifice. ..."
Motive of Sacrifices.

"From the fact that I Kings xi. 7 calls Molech the 'abomination of the children of Ammon' it was formerly assumed that this worship was an imitation of an Ammonite cult. But so little is known of the Ammonite religion that more recent scholarship has looked elsewhere for the source....
"Because child-sacrifice was a prominent feature of the worship of the Phenician Malik-Baal-Kronos, Moore (in Cheyne and Black, "Encyc. Bibl.") seeks to prove that the worship of Moloch was introduced from Phenicia. The evidence of its existence in Phenicia and her colonies is especially strong. Diodorus Siculus (xx. 14) tells how the Carthaginians in a siege sacrificed two hundred boys to Kronos. Burning was an important feature of the rite."

Meaning: king, the name of the national god of the Ammonites, to whom children were sacrificed by fire

"He was the consuming and destroying and also at the same time the purifying fire. In Amos 5:26, "your Moloch" of the Authorized Version is "your king" in the Revised Version (compare Acts 7:43). ..."

Moloch has often been identified with Milcom, the god of the Ammonites. He was probably also identified with Baal, and as a sun or fire god, as he was also identified with the Assyrian/Babylonian "Malik", and at Palmyra "Malach-bel". Moloch is also identified with Baal Hammon in Carthaginian religion.

Milton writes of him in Paradise Lost

"First, Moloch, horrid King, besmeared with blood
Of human sacrifice, and parents` tears;
Though, for the noise of drums and timbrels loud,
Their children`s cries unheard that passed through fire
To his grim idol. Him the Ammonite
Worshiped in Rabba and her watery plain,
In Argob and in Basan, to the stream
Of utmost Arnon. Nor content with such
Audacious neighbourhood, the wisest heart
Of Solomon he led by fraud to build
His temple right against the temple of God
On that opprobrious hill, and made his grove
The pleasant valley of Hinnom, Tophet thence
And black Gehenna called, the type of Hell."
- Paradise Lost, i. 391-405

Dictionnaire Infernal - Collin de Plancy (1863)
- paraphrased

"Moloch was the god of the Ammonites, portrayed as a bronze statue with a calf's head adorned with a royal crown and seated on a throne. His arms were extended to receive the child victims sacrificed to him. Milton wrote that Moloch was a frightening and terrible demon covered with mothers' tears and children's blood.

"Rabbis claim that in the famous statue of Moloch, there were seven kinds of cabinets. The first was for flour, the second for turtle doves, the third for an ewe, the fourth for a ram, the fifth for a calf, the sixth for a beef, and the seventh for a child. It is because of this, Moloch is associated with Mithras and his seven mysterious gates with seven chambers. When a child was sacrificed to Moloch, a fire was lit inside the statue. The priests would then beat loudly on drums & other objects so that the cries would not be heard."

[P]ast luminaries have included Former Presidents Regan and Nixon, together BEFORE they had even taken office....

      "The most famous ritual that occurs at the Grove every year is the Symbolic Pagan Worship of Molech `“ the `˜god` of Child Sacrifice. ... [P]olitical figureheads from around the world attend this sacrifice ceremony. German Chancellor Helmut Schmidt wrote of his fondness for the Grove ceremonies in his Biography 'Men and Power'.... Former President Richard Nixon is on record questioning the activities at the Grove, making reference to the debase, decadent attitude as well as the homosexual activity there."

With typical Jewish cunning they tried to fool the gods by substituting non-Jewish children in the sacrifice. The spells were usually cast for wealth and power. If we look at Jewish wealth and power today we may wonder at their spells efficiency.

The jew is like Dracula, shape shifting and morphing into what ever floats your boat. He has made elaborate rituals for lying and cheating and avoiding the "bind" of a public oath - that is amazing duplicity where a group of people can take sin and sociopathic/anti-human behavior and make it into a religion, tradition and culture. I mean that is AMAZING. Do you have ANY idea what you are dealing with?

What's that bible story? Is it Isiah or Abraham who was supposed to sacrifice his son to God ,but substituted a lamb instead ? " God" was a bit pissed, but from then on the "sacrificial lamb" was kosher. What "god" would require the sacrifice of the first-born son ? A fuckin' evil one , that's for sure !

I had the unfortunate opportunity to be seated next to a blue-eyed, red-haired , overweight greaseball jew on a flight for several hours once. We were discussing jooshit ( no surprise there ) and I happened to mention my knowledge of early Judaism , and their worshipping of the sun-god " Shamash " . He looked taken aback and had the big cookie eyes of surprise. He informed me that in the hebrew language "Shamash" means the Sun !

So, here we go ! Shamash is the name of their evil god, who they still worship. They had the celebration just a couple of months ago, and do so every 28 years. No doubt the evil cabal sacrificed kids in the dank dungeons under their " Synagogues of Satan ". Most likely the bastards tortured, killed and roasted the kidnapped kids of Druze or Palestinians.

This "people" are filth.
You're gonna have to get up pretty late in the afternoon to fool me!!

Good thing the OT is pure fantasy.

Molech: "A detestable Semitic deity honored by the sacrifice of children, in which they were caused to pass through or into the fire. Palestinian excavations have uncovered evidences of infant skeletons in burial places around heathen shrines.

Most people would expect "pass through or into fire" would result in ashes not skeletons. So this finding has no bearing whatsoever upon the Molech myth.
