The Gospel According to Luke: Part 45 :: By Dr. Donald Whitchard

An Exposition

Luke 17:1-2: “You Won’t Get Away with It”

“Then He said to His disciples, ‘It is impossible that no offenses should come, but woe to him through whom they do come! It would be better for him if a millstone were hung around his neck and be thrown into the sea than that he should offend one of these little ones” (Luke 17:1-2, NKJV).

“Who is a liar but he who denies that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist who denies the Father and the Son” (1 John 2:22, NKJV).

I will be blunt, and I will not hold what needs to be said back in reference to what the Lord Jesus and the apostles proclaimed in the Holy Scriptures. If any teacher, professor, pastor, parent, or anyone else says, teaches, or preaches anything that is in direct conflict with the Word of God and the truth of Christ and destroys the faith of a new or maturing believer, he or she has, for all practical purposes, molested and abused that person, leaving him or her in the dirt to bear the words and scorn of what that individual has said or claimed about Christ that is in violation of the Word.

Look at the crime of molestation in the physical realm first before we address it in terms of spiritual abuse. Our LORD has terrifying warnings to the guilty.

Right now, throughout the nation and the world, more and more people are crying out to the governing powers and legislators to address and publicize the growing and horrific problem of sex trafficking and child abduction. More people are demanding that anyone in possession of child pornography or has records of molesting and abusing children and babies sexually to be arrested, tried, and sent to prison for these heinous deeds that some perverted legislators are actually trying to decriminalize, defining it as a “lifestyle” where “love should have no barriers” as far as age is concerned. Organizations such as NAMBLA (North American Man-Boy Love Association) have made their statement, “Sex before eight or else it’s too late,” a battle cry for perversion that is evil, sick, and horrendous.

A few days ago, one of my friends posted a news story about a sixty-year-old Afghan man chasing down his new nine-year old bride somewhere near Kabul. Islam allows men to marry women as young as infancy and can engage in sexual intercourse with the young girl without any fear of reprimand or confrontation from his peers. This is no “religion of peace” as it would like to present itself, but is a form of slavery that demands submission or death.

The prophet Mohammed led the way with his marriage to a six-year-old girl when he was in his fifties and had carried out murders, robberies, and Islam soon was dominant over the Middle East. Islamic countries are rife with reports of genital mutilations of young girls and other forms of abuse, including honor killings as a means of enforcing draconian sharia law.

Until a recent nationwide crackdown by the government of Thailand, young girls were legally sold into prostitution by their families to be sent to cities throughout the country as a means of income. Bangkok, Phuket, and other Thai areas were full of old men and women who picked and chose girls and boys on the streets, barely out of childhood to perform sexual favors and then sent them back to the streets to endure the dangers and fear that were rampant. Slave labor, sexual abuse, and the reality of sacrifices of children around the world by people from all walks and levels of society are also being exposed and prosecuted by legal officials worldwide, but is also met with tremendous opposition and denial of the problem by officials in higher areas of government, both national and state.

The media also appears to be working hand in hand with these individuals in trying to keep the issue out of sight to most of the public, but with little success due to alternative news outlets, websites, and other means of getting the word out, which is a blessing of God in the face of the encroaching darkness.

News reports and exposés of the horrors of not just the abortion industry but the selling of baby parts to research labs and then showing a recording of a representative in charge of the operation bragging about how much she received from the sale of arms, legs, torsos, and heads in order to purchase a new Lamborghini should have horrified the public and demanded an end to the abortion industry altogether. Instead, nothing. America and other countries are practicing barbarity against unborn children that is more sickening than anything Dr. Josef Mengele did to children in the Auschwitz concentration camps during World War II, and most of society has turned a blind eye.

Sexual and physical abuse is not limited to the outside realm of what we would define as “secular.” This devilish act is also found all too often in the churches, organizations, and schools and the powers that govern them. Generations of children who are now adults have either been shamed, threatened, or ridiculed by their molesters who wore the collar of a cleric, or uniform of a respected organization, or educational figure.

Right now, there are pastors, youth ministers, deacons, church officials, scoutmasters and others walking around free to do harm to new groups of the innocent and believe that they can get away with it. However, more and more victims are now getting the courage to speak out and confront their molesters in public and by legal means, with many of these sick creatures heading to prison. These incidents are merely a scratch on the surface, as all too many participants tend to dodge getting caught or are protected by powerful individuals or organizations.

The occultists, such as Satanists, witches, warlocks, necromancers, and others have kidnapped and killed infants and children worldwide as appeasement to Satan or other demonic forces. The number of missing and abducted children is always being added to police and legal records, and too many pictures find themselves on public notice boards, often with little or no attention paid to them. Let me say something that will no doubt upset and anger some, but let God be true and every man a liar. There are people in congregations, work areas, schools, and daycares who either practice these abominations or participate in deviant sexual acts, and they are in contact with your children and young people every day. They may even be that nice couple who sit in the same pew as you on Sundays.

This is a reality all throughout this nation, even where you live. Crimes against children and infants have been occurring throughout history. The Scriptures present the perverse and wickedness of child sacrifice practiced by Israel’s pagan neighbors, such as offering children to the white-hot arms of the pagan fertility idol Moloch, as the drums of the priests drowned out the screams of the little ones as they were burned alive to appease this deity from hell. Civilizations such as the Aztecs and Mayans practiced human sacrifice in what is now central America and Mexico. Archaeologists have discovered pits filled with thousands of skeletons of victims, old and young, who have been killed to appease their bloodthirsty “sun god.”

Books and websites have been established that are exposing and writing about heinous crimes and practices of these malevolent individuals and groups. This abuse, sexual deviancy, and crimes against children will end when the Lord Jesus returns to rule, reign, and judge all who have harmed the infants, children, weak, infirm throughout history, condemning these perverse, evil people to an eternal hell where they will never hurt or harm anyone ever again.

Read the verses in this presentation and see that it is the Lord Jesus Himself who gives the dire and terrifying warning to these deviants who would plan to do such harm to the little ones. It would be better for them to kill themselves in the most horrid manner, that of drowning, and disappear than to even think about doing anything harmful to children or the innocent in mind.

Those of you who are behind the pulpits of churches, teach in the Sunday schools, the desks of a classroom, or lecterns of a college and university, as well as parents and peers, take what has been presented to heart.

In proclaiming to young believers, from child to adult, that the Bible is full of errors; or that we do not possess the original writings and have nothing but copies full of mistakes; or that Jesus is not God in the flesh; or that there is no hell or heaven; that Jesus really did not rise from the dead; or that the apostles made up the whole story; or dismiss the accounts of Jesus’ miracles and teachings; or deny the existence of a literal devil; or that we need to add something other than salvation through Christ alone; or to listen to “new revelations,” or “personal words from God,” or ANYTHING contrary to the truth of God’s Word alone is GUILTY OF SPIRITUAL MOLESTATION AND A PERVERSION OF FAITH.

The young believer who hears these lies and false teachings and has their faith destroyed because of what you have said and taught, heed this warning. It would be better to put on the same millstone and go drown yourself. You and every false teacher throughout history will face the wrath of God at the Great White Throne Judgment, where you will be cast into the Lake of Fire for eternity along with the physical perverts and molesters. I WARN YOU IN THE NAME AND AUTHORITY OF JESUS CHRIST TO REPENT AND TURN TO HIM FOR MERCY AND SALVATION RIGHT NOW!! (2 Corinthians 6:2). There is no guarantee that you will live to see another day, and you will be held accountable before the Holy and righteous Sovereign God for what you have done. You will not get away with anything.

Wipe the smirk off your face right now. What I have presented is the absolute truth, and you know it. Examine your hearts, mind, and soul and give all to the grace and mercy of the Lord Jesus Christ, who will not cast out anyone who comes to Him for true life and peace. To everyone who has read this, you too are without excuse.
