I have thought of one example that might not call child sexual abuse as sexual abuse. A decade or so a 21 year old man had a relationship with an underage girl. In talking to folks who knew this man they claimed that she was more mature and mentally developed then him. So if an adult who is basically a child or young teenager in mind capable of intent for child sexual abuse by intent?

My entire reason for butting into this thread is that absolutes rarely cover real people in real life. Besides a century ago children were not considered chikdren like they are now and marriage between even a pre teen girl and an adult man were sanctioned by the church.

What part of "Murder is always wrong" did you not understand?

Don't embarass yourself by avoiding the issue. If you can't answer the question, it is better to say so than to display cowardice.

Between 1Corinthians 6:9-11, and Galations 5:19-21 combined with all the false god worship and partaking off the table of demons= 99%--The reason Jesus compared these last days to Noahs day. He taught only few would find the road. Few listen to him that is why.

We always knew that. SOME of us understand what MAKES them "sin" and some of us are still thinking it's because they are on their imaginary "list." And THOSE benighted souls refuse to answer questions as to WHY things on their "list" SHOULD be considered "sin."

We enter a new age when we come out of end time living born out of and built on wrong concepts about God, superstitions and pre conceived ideas about God held by our ancestors who did not know any better.

This might be a shock to fundamentalists but we are born into an end time world and the way out of it is to seek the Lord and His Kingdom.
