WOW read the article.

Molech (Moloch). This Semitic false deity (god of the Ammonites) was worshiped with child sacrifice (cf. Lev_20:2-5; 1Ki_11:7; 2Ki_23:10; Jer_32:35). Since this chapter deals otherwise with sexual deviation, there is likely an unmentioned sexual perversion connected with this pagan ritual. Jews giving false gods homage gave foreigners occasion to blaspheme the true God.

Milcom. Another name for Molech (1Ki_11:7), the national god of the Ammonites. His name seems to mean "the one who rules." The worship of Molech was associated with the sacrifice of children in the fire (Lev_18:21; Lev_20:2-3, Lev_20:4-5; Jer_32:35).

Amos 5:25-26

In addition to worshiping the Lord during the Exodus in the wilderness, Israel also worshiped other gods, carrying along "Sikkuth (or "tabernacle") your king (or "Molech") and Chiun, your idols." Molech worship included the astrological worship of Saturn and the host of heaven, plus the actual sacrificing of children (2Ki_17:16-17). Warned against Molech worship (Deu_18:9-13), Israel nevertheless pursued all facets of it, continuing with Solomon (1Ki_11:7) and his descendants (1Ki_12:28; 2Ki_17:16-17; Jer_32:35) until Josiah (2Ki_23:10). Stephen recited Amo_5:25-27 when he recounted the past sins of Israel in Act_7:42-43.

Wow- Statue of ancient god of child sacrifice put on display in Rome? The Pope approved?
A reconstruction of a pagan idol who demanded child sacrifice was stationed at the entrance of Rome’s Colosseum as part of a secular historical exhibition.


Leviticus 18:21 And thou shalt not let any of thy seed pass through the fire to Molech, neither shalt thou profane the name of thy God: I am the LORD.

That is all.....
