Cannibalism--The New Normal

There has been a disturbing development in the news lately regarding an alarming rise in instances of cannibalism.  We read these stories with a mixture of morbid fascination and innate revulsion.  They remind us of something out of a horror flick with titles like: “Miami Face-Eating Zombie” or the “Psycho Cannibal Porn Star” and “Man Arrested with Roasted Fetuses in Luggage”.  It’s almost difficult to fathom that these are all real headlines!  It’s the ultimate global car accident—we don’t want to watch it but we can’t look away.  Our initial knee-jerk reaction is “What in the world is going on?  Is cannibalism some kind of demented, new trend for goodness sakes?” 

In India, recent news articles have reported that abortion clinic workers were feeding the overabundance of aborted female fetuses to the dogs in order to clear the mountain of evidence away.  The prevalence of sex-selection abortion is something the Indian people prefer not to publicly acknowledge.  The birth ratio of boys to girls in India is now the lowest in the entire world at 1000 males born for every 801 females.  Lest we start feeling smug in the U.S.—recent undercover reports have confirmed “sex-selection” abortions are, indeed, the ugly truth at Planned Parenthood offices around our own country.  Congress recently voted DOWN a bill to ban the practice.  Truly, our national conscience has “gone to the dogs” as a result of this de facto sanctioning of infant gendercide.  This, my dear readers, is the real “War on Women”.  The symbolism and spiritual emptiness in this act is both frightful and revolting. 

When I searched for Cannibalism in Bible history, I came across the story by Flavius Josephus (c. 37-95 A.D.).  Josephus was the Jewish historian who gave a first hand account of the destruction of the Jerusalem Temple in 70 A.D.  He was appalled at the spectacle of a mother roasting and eating her own child during the siege.  Truly, he wrote, this was the epitome of a nation in the throes of a complete freefall.  When a child was the least safe in the hands of its own mother—Josephus realized there can be no doubt as to what he was witnessing: The “End of the Age” was at hand. 

In the United States, we have already “consumed” over 53 million of our children in the American Abortion Holocaust.  Do we honestly believe that we will avoid any national repercussions of this atrocity? Or, in keeping with the car accident analogy and latest news headlines, perhaps we too are on the “Highway to Zombie Hell”.

Fasten your seatbelt.  

Rev 2:4~The dragon stood in front of the woman who was about to give birth, so that he might devour her child the moment it was born.
