According to The Sun, a 36-year-old woman tried to sell her own seven-year-old son in a shopping center in Yekaterinburg, Russia, for 4,000 euros.
Understand the case:
According to authorities, the woman named Nargiza announced the sale online, saying she needed to “sell her son to pay off debts.”
She was only arrested under Russia’s child trafficking laws after employees at an anti-slavery charity posed as shoppers and met her at the mall’s food court.
According to them, she would have said that the boy “didn’t mind” being traded and going to a new family.
Other similar cases:
In Bolivia, at the beginning of July, a man named Faustino Colque Mollo, 23, sold his own newborn daughter, through the Whastapp application, in order to buy a new cell phone.
Another case also happened in Russia, where a 33-year-old woman decided to sell her five-day-old son, in order to pay for a nose job.
What to analyze:
It’s scary how similar cases are coming to light, making it clear how love is getting cold, even within one’s own family, just as the Lord Jesus announced.
“And because iniquity will abound, the love of many will grow cold. But he who endures to the end, he will be saved.” Matthew 24.12-13
In this way, the result of the increase in iniquity, which is related to wickedness, injustice and disobedience, is love growing cold.
“For this reason, humanity has strides toward perdition (2 Timothy 3:1-5). For if people do not love and respect God Himself, how will they love and respect their fellow men? Therefore, the cooling of love is, without a doubt, one of the greatest signs of the return of the Lord Jesus, and can be seen mainly in the family circle and in the socializing of people in general.”, explained Bishop Macedo, in the Commented Bible.
