Today Bible Outpost is starting a prophecy series following the Decline of America. The Greeley Gazette has an article about the increased push to legalize pedophilia. To build support for their cause, pedophiles have started arguing that their desires are no different than homosexual or heterosexual desires.
Earlier in the year, psychologist Van Gijseghem (a retired professor from the University of Montreal) made this state to the members of Parliament
“Pedophiles are not simply people who commit a small offense from time to time but rather are grappling with what is equivalent to a sexual orientation just like another individual may be grappling with heterosexuality or even homosexuality.”
He continued by saying,
“True pedophiles have an exclusive preference for children, which is the same as having a sexual orientation. You cannot change this person’s sexual orientation. He may, however, remain abstinent.”
The article contains several more recent statements from other professors and publications, including one from Milton Diamond, professor at the University of Hawaii and director of the Pacific Center for Sex and Society, who believes child pornography could be beneficial since pedophiles use it as a substitute for the actual acts.

There can no longer be any doubt that American society is on a massive decline. Linda Harvey (from the Christian organization Mission America) believes pedophiles will increase as LGBT groups continue to gain legal standing. “It’s all part of a plan to introduce sex to children at younger and younger ages; to convince them that normal friendship is actually a sexual attraction.”
While the Bible does not appear to address the subject of Pedophilia directly, it is crystal clear about fornication - we are not to do it. Matthew 18 also serves as a stark reminder of how God views the protection and instruction of children:
Matthew 18:6 “If anyone causes one of these little ones—those who believe in me—to stumble, it would be better for them to have a large millstone hung around their neck and to be drowned in the depths of the sea.”
At some point a society has to draw a line in the sand and have standards. Everything should NOT be tolerated, otherwise, we will continue to rapidly move towards a point where anything is permissible. A society that rebels against God’s Will in such a flagrant manner had better hope there is still some mercy and time left, because He’s not going to react well when the “little children” are victimized.
