There is a serious problem in the Protestant world that is not being dealt with.
As I have said many times~I'm NOT a Protestant in the true sense of that word~Christians have NEVER protested the first truth~the faithful have held to the truth from Abel on. I refuse to allow RCC/EOC to label me as a Protestant. Regardless
who others may consider another group a Protestant, the word of God will expose who are the Protestants
, and who are the faithful in Jesus Christ. You folks have done a good job of convincing this world that all outside of Catholicism are Protestant, but you failed among the true followers of Jesus Christ, who love him and keep his commandments. Bottom line~the word of the Living God will show who are Protestants and who are the few faithful left in this world~and they do not walk around in long robes! But you will find them sweeping floors, building houses, fishermen, making tents, digging ditches, hauling trash, etc. etc.
There was also a serious problem in the Catholic world that was already dealt with in the US and is being dealt with similarly in other countries.
Past tense? Hardly! So, sir, you think that it JUST STOPS with filthy lucre
? I will say this, based upon my age, I have been around for while and have seen zero molesting of young children in the churches I have been associated with and knew, zero, God being my witness. Yes, many adulterous affairs, but none with small children~I lie not, God Almighty being my witness. I said that to say this: Molesting children is against nature
, and is a working of evil spirits, not so with a man or a woman lusting after each other, it comes naturally
, it is part of who we are, and the way we were created~Now, DO NOT
misunderstand me, it is STILL a wicked sin that shall be punished, but the point I'm making is this: desiring the opposite sex is natural, and we must work to mortify its desires within us, but to lust after children, especially the same sex, it IS evil spirits working within those people, and filthy lucre
will not drive these spirits away.
The point of my response, however, is that the sexual abuse has nothing to do with the fact that they are celibate.
Sir, you are wrong. These Pedophiles look for
vocations where it puts them in proximity of their desire haven to preform their evil deeds. What better place to be!
In a place where you have freedom and trust that could over time hide much of ones evil practices of sin! Say what you want to, but facts are FACTS.
There are lots of unmarried men out there. That doesn't mean that, because these men are unmarried, they have a tendency to molest boys. The two are not related.
Of course this is true, but one does not stay unmarried generally, without good reasons, and still it would be very rare
~God created us to reproduce
, not to live a life without enjoying sex~I personally could not imagine a life without it, but that the way I'm made and both myself and my wife are thankful for it, it's indeed wonderful, to be enjoyed in the manner in which he designed it to be enjoyed.
