The Vatican Places Giant Statue of Molech at Colosseum Entrance
The Roman Colosseum is a World Heritage Site and is listed among the New Seven Wonders of the World. It is the most-visited tourist destination in the world. And now at the grand entrance to the Colosseum rests a statue of the Canaanite deity that is associated heavily with child sacrifice.
The Colosseum was once a place that saw Christians fed to lions, killed by gladiators, or rolled into pitch and set on fire as torches. The Colosseum now seems to have erected Molech as its god.
The press release about the giant Molech (sometimes spelled Moloch) idol says…
A reconstruction of the terrible deity Moloch, linked to Phoenician and Carthaginian religions… will be stationed at the entrance to the Colosseum to welcome visitors to the exhibition.
Called “art,” it is unclear how long the exhibit will stay at the Colosseum. Interestingly, the organizers acknowledge that Molech is a “terrible deity.”
Molech has been associated with human abortion for thousands of years. The name, Molech is believed to have originated with the Phoenician mlk, which referred to a type of sacrifice made to confirm or acquit a vow. Along with ritual prostitution, this deity required the death of babies to appease him.
The Bible warned the Israelites repeatedly to have nothing to do with Molech, “You shall not give any of your children to offer them to Molech, and so profane the name of your God: I am the Lord (Leviticus 18:21).”
And yet, Solomon and other kings continued to revere or fear this horrible god and his statues repeatedly were put on display in “the high places” (1 Kings 12:31), or places regularly visited by ancient day tourists.
Molech has just been installed in the highest and most well-traveled place on Earth, the Roman Colosseum.
The Vatican has ownership and authority over the Colosseum and all of its displays, exhibits, and functions. As Breaking Israel News writes…
“There is no way that such a thing could be done without direct permission from the highest levels of the Vatican. The Colosseum of Rome is owned by the Vatican, and specifically the Diocese of Rome, also called the Holy See. If anyone wants to do anything there, they must get permissions from the office of the Diocese of Rome. This exhibition, called “Cathargo: the immortal myth” could not be held there at all unless permissions were granted at high levels.”
The Vatican has owned and operated the Colosseum since the Middle Ages when it took control of the facility from the Frangipani Family.
Pope Pius X encourged people to make a pilgrimage to the “holy site” and collect dust from its gladitorial stage. Pope Benedict XIV declared it a sacred site in 1749 (to honor the martyrs who died there).
The sign placed over the cross in the Colesseum (pictured above) placed in 1783 by the Vatican says, “The amphitheater, one consecrated to triumphs, entertainments, and the impious worship of pagan gods, is now dedicated to the sufferings of the martyrs purified from impious superstitions.”
