Valley of Murder

4 Because the people have forsaken me and have profaned this place by making offerings in it to other gods whom neither they nor their fathers nor the kings of Judah have known; and because they have filled this place with the blood of innocents, 5 and have built the high places of Baal to burn their sons in the fire as burnt offerings to Baal, which I did not command or decree, nor did it come into my mind— 6 therefore, behold, days are coming, declares the Lord, when this place shall no more be called Topheth, or the Valley of the Son of Hinnom, but the Valley of Slaughter.—Jeremiah 19:4-6, ESV
We allow our citizens to do the same today in abortion clinics. The gods of this nation are different and their method is different, but statistically, 4,000 babies are slaughtered each day as an offering to the gods of this age. How much longer will God be patient with us? In my opinion, our nation can only expect severe judgment, and while God is faithful and true to His word for those who truly follow Him and fear Him, we will all be affected greatly when judgment comes. God will discipline His people for failing to stop this slaughter of more than 50 million babies. We the people fail to stop these atrocities simply by staying silent and electing leaders who are, at best, silently opposing abortion, and at worst, supporting the expansion of the this horrific crime. May we no longer tolerate abortion in this country just like our tolerance of the African slave trade came to an end.
