Matthew 2:16 NASB
Then when Herod saw that he had been tricked by the magi, he became very enraged, and sent and slew all the male children who were in Bethlehem and all its vicinity, from two years old and under, according to the time which he had determined from the magi.
It is difficult to write this piece.
I don’t really know how to do it.
Infanticide in Bethlehem…Why?
And this at the birth of the Savior, Jesus.
I can’t give a high, only a very low explanation for it.
This shows the hatred and cruelty of people who want to maintain their own power.
These types of people are willing to murder to keep what they have.
Throughout history from the past to today, we find them everywhere. Despots, warlords, dictators, politicians.
Power corrupts. A lot of power corrupts a lot.
Herod wants to drown every possible threat in blood.
All boys up to the age of two are murdered.
Is that attitude living in everyone’s heart?
From the smallest child to the most intelligent statesman.
I on the throne, my interest in the foreground, no one should stand in my way.
This leads to a society in which the disposal of unborn life and death becomes normal.
Who do we follow: Herod or Jesus?
