"America: The Modern-Day Valley of Slaughter"

Last Saturday, just before the release of Living Waters' documentary 180, I had the privilege, honor, and blessing of joining the men of Grace Bible Church of Bakersfield, for their monthly men's breakfast. After a wonderful meal and time of fellowship, I preached from Jeremiah 7:1-8:3. The Message: "America: The Modern-Day Valley of Slaughter."

In the message, I point out the parallels between Israel of 2,600 years ago and America of today. One of the most striking parallels is how both nations, with reckless abandon, with wanton disregard for the Word and Law of God, and with depraved indifference to the lives of children, sacrificed their children to the worship of false gods.

America is a modern-day Valley of Slaughter because it murders unborn children at the rate of 1 every 21 seconds. America's love affair with abortion makes our nation no different than ancient Israel who, as an idolatrous and adulterous nation, sacrificed her children to the false gods Molech and Baal.

I hope this message serves the Lord and His people as a word of conviction and encouragement, and a call to  both repentance and action in the fight for the unborn.
