Title: Pedophilia
Post by: Stan on December 18, 2015, 06:25:25 PM
After taking with victims of this 'sickness' I thought, to me, the issue is not if convicted pedofiles should have prostatectomies and orchidectomies, the question is should they use anaesthetic or not.

That might just give them enough strength to stop this.

Pedophilic thoughts or desires are demonic in origin.

It is and almost has to be the "scarlet letter" in church's because of the high recidivism rate among those who abuse the young.  I've had to deal with several in church's where I've been in leadership, and they are under strict rules of where they can and cannot go to the point of even needing an adult escort to use the bathroom.

Being in a church leadership position (in that regard) would be extremely difficult i.e. it's very unsavory to have to deal pedafiles-in-the-church who have asked for forgiveness, but who are still having issues. That's one of those things that you don't think about, until you're in a leadership position.  Again, pedafilic thoughts are demonic in origin.

Our American generation has seen a fast and furious moral decline, to the point where SCOTUS has ruled that homosexuality and homosexual marriage is a Constitutionally protected right. That is a big pendulum swing, considering that it used to be a criminal offense just a few years ago. And then in 1973, SCOTUS ruled that abortions (killing human life) is also a protected right. This legally protected moral decline of American law is not in-line with the Word of God.

All blessings come from the Lord, to include the prosperity and security of the United States. I'm concerned that spiritual judgement will follow the moral depravity that is being embraced at the highest legal levels in our nation.  The wheels of God move slowly, but finely.

You are dead on the mark with that assessment in the decay of morality in the U.S., me again!  Which also includes the legalizing of marijuana!  I've despaired over it ever since WWII!

I still think it is a choice, a choice that is taking one step at a time, needing more exciting every step of the way.

To blame the devil for our actions, in many cases, is not responsible at all. Sure he is behind that no doubt.

I have seen too many people walk that walk one step at a time, not all are pedophilla...  yet, but have warn down their built-in-warning a lot.

Of course, I do not think Calvinist would agree, with that free choice.

Paul had it right, when He said, "As for those agitators, I wish they would go the whole way and emasculate themselves!"  Pedophiles should do the same!
