I have a theory: Wherever you find easy, you find human beings. Instant gratification. Addiction. Employment. Education. The bottom, is full of people, because it is easy to be on the bottom. But sometimes, easy does not cut it.. If we want to ascend in society, we must lead a life, devoid of easy. Religion, for me, did not fit into my theory.. Why? Because I’ve lived a life of privilege, addiction.. Instant gratification and all that came with it, but devoid of religion.
So I began attending church and began reading the bible. I found a contrast, existed, between the way religious folk once lived and the way they now lived. The contrast, was that, the easier the religion became to practice, the more people become involved, to practice.
But easy, sets you down a path and at the end of that path, lies hard. Dedication. Moderation. Responsibility. Discipline. But what lies, on the other end of easy, when thinking about religion? I decided to look into it.
Throughout my research, two names appeared, both being mentioned in the bible.. Ashtoreth and Molech. Christian religion associates the two as ‘Demons’, but in actuality, the two were simply apart of a different religion and the bible demonizes worshipping all gods but the christian one and so, this idea of ‘hell’ and ‘demons’ was actually a religious construct to secure worshippers and battle defection, a classic tactic in the “Us Vs. Them” Mentality that pervades throughout history.
So.. I think most of us are aware of the confines the christian religioj imposes, but ultimately, the question of: Why Molech isn’t worshipped today, stands in my mind, so I guessed the reason why: Because worshipping the christian god was easier.
Why was it easier? Why was worshipping Molech harder? I wanted to know, so I looked and researched into it.
Molech is the ‘King of all deities’ The origin god. Considered the chief deity of fire, Molech was said to grant healing, protecting and purification to it’s worshippers.
Reinforced in the bible, there were several ‘towns’ all carrying the same name: Ashtoreth, and these towns called Ashtoreth, Molech worship was practiced.
Ashtoreth, is a consort to Molech. A goddess of fertility. As she represented fertility, Molech represented life and reproduction.
In these towns of Ashtoreth, there were Qadesh, Qedishim and Sodomites. They were essentially priests and male prostitutes. Worshippers, that wanted to make an offering to Ashtoreth, used these male Qedishim as prostitutes to do so, having anal sex with them, supposedly gaining a blessing of fertility for their offering of worship.
To clear the land of sin, Molech demanded all worshippers pass their first born, ‘through the fire’ as a way for priests of Molech to reach a state of purification.
Idols of Molech worship, were basically a humanoid figure, with the head of a bull, with outstretched hands, palms up, slightly towards the sky, forming a sort of ramp, using the two arms, that led into a hole in the bulging belly of the humanoid idol. This belly, was essentially a furnace. While onlookers played flutes and drums, the priest would pass his first born through the fire and the music would drone out the screams of the dying infant. First born animals, would also be sacrificed. When violated or offended, it is said that Molech would also demand sacrifices and even vague mention of straight human sacrifice, can also be found.
In modern times, often, Roman Catholic priests, have been found having anal sex with little boys, some even high ranking members and it always puzzled me, as to why these priests were often protected by the church.. Was it, because the church, just inherently looks after its own, or was it because, this anal sex, was just the tip of the iceberg, indicative of even greater horrors that needed to be covered up?
Strangest of all, is how the christian god, seems to also sacrifice its first born, Jesus Christ?
What the fuck is all of this?
