WALKING WITH GOD—The Cults of Canaan
Canaan? Cannan was a neighboring land of Israel, and it had a fertility cult, including rituals and ceremonies for Baal and Asherah.
Most Canaanites had been involved in farming by depending on the power of Baal, Asherah, and magic and occults. They believed the sexual union between Baal and Asherah brought fertility, causing public and religious prostitution. Besides, they sacrificed the firstborn to Baal due to personal prosperity.
