Largest Child Sacrifice in World History Discovered?

“Many of the children had their faces smeared with a red cinnabar-based pigment during the ceremony before their chests were cut open, most likely to remove their hearts. The sacrificial llamas appear to have met the same fate.” -NatGeo

In an exclusive report by National Geographic, archaeologists claim to have uncovered the largest ritualistic child sacrifice in the history of the world on the northern coast of Peru. The report states:

More than 140 children and 200 young llamas appear to have been ritually sacrificed in an event that took place some 550 years ago on a wind-swept bluff overlooking the Pacific Ocean, in the shadow of what was then the sprawling capital of the Chimú Empire.

“Archaeologist Gabriel Prieto, second from left, a National Geographic Explorer, excavates the coastal lot where the ritual event took place more than 500 years ago. He trains local students to become the next generation of scientists to document the history of Huanchaco.” -NatGeo

While it may be easy to write off incidents like these as ancient phenomena that we no longer deal with in this modern world, let’s not forget the millions of innocent children who are being and have been sacrificed on the altar of convenience through our abortion industry in this modern time. By the world’s standards, this is clearly an abominable practice–after all, children were sacrificed to appease a false god, an idol. But from God’s perspective, the millions of children our culture sacrifices today is far more grievous. There is no excuse. Today, children are sacrificed to appease the gods of filthy lucre, convenience, and way of life.

God is not pleased.

You shall not worship the Lord your God in that way, for every abominable thing that the Lord hates they have done for their gods, for they even burn their sons and their daughters in the fire to their gods. –Deuteronomy 12:31
