The New York Times, in their efforts to standardize pedophilia, claimed that it is a disorder and not a crime; therefore; it should be treated and not punished. This shows me that the radical left is desperately trying to “standardize” the most deviant of behaviors and bring society’s standards into conformity with pedophilia. This is just another attempt to force acceptance of deviant behavior upon our society.
The argument used to justify this deviant behavior is that as long as it doesn’t hurt the child, then love is love. Also, the argument that homosexual activists have used to promote their sin is: It’s my right to be able to marry someone of the same sex. Now pedophiles are using that same sick argument, declaring that it is their right to have sexual relationships with children! The standardizing process for pedophilia has started, and pedophile activists have asked the corrupt mainstream media to stop using the term, “pedophilia,” and instead refer to their sin as “minor attracted persons.”
What is pedophilia? It is a sexual deviation and condition in which a person’s sexual gratification depends on engaging in sexual behavior with children, that is atypical and extreme.
An estimated 20% of American children have been sexually molested, making pedophilia a common sexual perversion. Across the globe, traffickers buy and sell children, exploiting them for sex and forced labor. About 8 million children are reported missing each year around the world. About a million children will go missing in the United States alone. There is mounting evidence of organized pedophilia and child-trafficking networks throughout the world that implicate high-level government leaders, judges, church leaders and charitable institutions.
In Washington, DC politicians, both Democratic and Republicans, are involved in this pedophilia epidemic. The FBI said, after viewing the contents of Anthony Weiner’s laptop, “There is enough evidence for the entire government to be brought down.”
What does the Bible say on this topic? There is no direct mention of pedophilia, but this behavior is discussed in the scripture. Paul uses the Greek word, porneia,” in Gal. 5:19, “Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these: sexual immorality (porneia). This Greek word is used to describe all types of immoral sexual behavior that include: adultery, fornication, transgenderism, and would include all pedophilia, and all abnormal sexual acts. Paul points out that people who commit these acts will not inherit the kingdom of heaven (Gal. 5:21). Paul is saying that the actions of the flesh such as pedophilia is always wrong! This problem of pedophilia is a plague in our modern society, and those who have been victimized as children certainly understand the trauma that accompanies this sin.
One of the arguments that is used to justify this sin is when Jesus said, “Let the children come unto me” (Matt. 18:16). This scripture has absolutely nothing to do with sexual attraction. Jesus also said, “And if your right eye makes you stumble, tear it out” (Matt. 5:29-30). He is trying to teach us to see the severity of sin, such as pedophilia! It is better to give this sin up than lose our eternal life.
