People today consider child sacrifice to be a primitive and barbaric ritual. However, it is a fact that child sacrifice was a common practice in the ancient world. It was even practiced by some people in Israel (Judg. 11:30-31, 39; 1 Kings 16:34).
In the ancient world, child sacrifice was a ritual in which the worshiper offered to the gods a most precious gift, one’s own child. Read my post today about the sacrifice of a girl in India.
