Which is worse in your own opinion... to have known GOD and molest a little one or to not have known GOD and molest a little one...?
Worse for whom? Either way the little kid is fucked.
I am not even sure which way you, ILY, would go with this. Better to have known (or pretended or been deluded into believing) a deity and sinned, or better to have sinned out of ignorance?
What do you think the answer here is?
I don't think it makes a damn bit of difference to the child...
This is my opinion.
I think it is far worse to have known the goodness of The Lord and commit a perverse act such as this, rather than to have done it without knowing the goodness of The Lord.
Would you consider this a good thing...? Well, neither do I. Do you condone such behavior...?
I have seen on this very forum and elsewhere, the words of people who say they are or have been ministers at a church or pastors, bishops, priests, clergy. Active participant within the church who ARE NOT BELIEVERS. THEY DON'T BELIEVE IN GOD...!!! THEY DON'T BELIEVE IN JESUS CHRIST...!!!! THEY ARE FALSE...!!!! If you yourselves know these things and have left at your own admissions, why are you questioning the ones you know are false...? And then accusing the ones who are faithful...?
Now tell me this. How is it when you know these things but yet when you hear of something like this, you immediately assume they are acting on behalf of GOD...? You let these people whom you know are false keep you from the truth, given the excuse.
But you know it is wrong. You know it wrong to harm children. Why do you think GOD would approve...? He doesn't. He doesn't have anything to do with it.
What is the purpose of wearing green underwear...? When does it ever say that GOD will only forgive you after you've said 50 hail Marys and 10 our Fathers...? When...? GOD has no use for your money.... People do.... Needy people for the matter....
Jesus never took one penny. Not one penny for a miracle or to be forgiven. He never even asked for tithes. He rebuked those who were under the law and self righteous. He questioned the self religious Teachers of the law. The "religious" people who think that they're religion made them acceptable to GOD but couldn't be further from the truth. They gave a tenth of everything they owned denied the weightier matter of the law. Love, mercy, forgiveness, compassion
He took nothing but gave all he had. He never hurt anyone. He corrected (rebuked).
Yet, you know all of these things that are going on within the worlds religions and it has drove you away. Why...? Why is that...? All of you believe in love and you deny Jesus Christ...? You reject the very one who came to set you free and show you the truth. The truth you have desired for so long. He did it for you. What do you really think Jesus would be saying to all of these Churches today...? The ones who put themselves on a pedestal...? When He himself did nothing but go to the poor, the sick, the needy, the "sinners", those hurting, suffering people of the world to show them the truth. A truth that cost Him His life. A truth The Father knew because He loved you. A truth He knew His Son would die, when He didn't deserve it to bring you the truth on a more personal level in hopes that you will know the truth and His love for you.
He took the punishment upon Himself.
Jesus Christ never denied GOD.
