How You Can Start Fighting Against Pedophilia Today (Part 1): Profiling a Pedophile

One of the positive outcomes of the Pedogate/ Pizzagate revelations is that it has raised much-needed concern about pedophilia closer to the level it needs to be. A side of pedophilia that many did not want to believe existed has been exposed. A pedophile is no longer seen as the isolated ‘dirty old man’ in a raincoat preying on unsuspecting children or a flawed priest abusing an altar boy. It is now highly associated with politicians at the highest levels of government, especially those who align with the NWO agenda, for whom it has become a way of career and life.

Yet we should also be aware that pedophilia today is occuring at all levels of society, even right in our neighborhood, and there are measures we can all take to help prevent it…

Pedophilia is defined as the fantasy or act of sexual activity with children who are generally age 13 years or younger. Pedophiles are usually men and can be attracted to either or both sexes. It is possible that as much as 3-5% of the male population in America are pedophiles to some degree. The number of female pedophiles would be a small fraction of that percentage.

An estimated 20% of American children have been sexually molested, making pedophilia a much too common crime. But the fact is, offenders are usually family, friends or relatives, which means we can absolutely do something to protect children by watching out for them and giving them the loving attention they deserve… Studies suggest that children who feel uncared for or lonely may be at higher risk of sexual abuse.

Types of activities included in pedophilia vary. It may include just looking at a child, undressing and touching a child, engaging in oral sex or touching of genitals of the child or offender, all the way down to the most perverse sexual acts.

A child should not be exposed even to the mildest form of abuse and it should never be viewed as acceptable or normal.

Conventional methods will never stop pedophilia

Psychologists have studied pedophilia intensely with little solid conclusion concerning its causes and treatment. (A major flaw in the field of psychology is that it does not generally recognize the deeply spiritual nature of human life). They say the causes of pedophilia (and other paraphilias) are not known but there is some evidence that it may run in families via genetics or learned behavior. They state other possible causes such as abnormalities in male sexual hormones or brain chemicals, but this has not been proven and it most likely never will be. This is because pedophilia, like all other human moral flaws, is fundamentally a spiritual problem with a spiritual cause. Sin and separation from God allow these terrible dysfunctions to occur and increase like we’ve witnessed in the past few decades.

However, while there is much uncertainty in secular studies concerning pedophilia in America, again, one fact is agreed upon: most child molesters are known to the children they abuse. 30% of children who have been sexually abused were abused by a family member, and 60% were abused by an adult they knew but was not a family member. That means only 10% of children who are sexually abused were targeted by a total stranger.

Call to action

In most cases, the child molester turns out to be someone known to the child through school or another activity, such as a neighbor, teacher, coach, member of the clergy, music instructor, or babysitter. Family members like mothers, fathers, grandmothers, grandfathers, aunts, uncles, cousins, stepparents, and so on may also be sexual predators. This means it is well within our ability to prevent many potential cases of pedophilia if we only observe carefully and try our best to understand what is really going on within our surroundings, refusing to permit such acts to occur.

One thing you can do immediately if you live in the US is find out whether sex offenders live in your neighborhood. You can use the US Department of Justice National Sex Offender Database to determine whether any registered sex offenders live in your area. All you have to do is enter your zip code and do a search.

Pedophilia cannot be treated lightly. It is the opinion of this writer that a convicted pedophile should be executed (carried out by official law enforcers). This will not only remove a future threat to children, but it also serves as a powerful deterrent for many other potential pedophiles. As Jesus, the creator of all children, said concerning child abusers: “It would be better for him if a millstone were hung around his neck, and he were thrown into the sea, than that he should offend one of these little ones” (Luke 17:2).
