I was in New York City in June of 2001 with my wife Heather for my first visit to New York City. When I returned for a last-minute mission trip in December of 2001, I found an entirely different city.
La Biblia toma el abuso sexual en serio. Debemos denunciarlo 1) porque es la ley (en el caso de menores) y debemos someternos al gobierno que Dios ha puesto sobre nosotros para ejercer Su justicia; 2) porque como pueblo de Dios se nos pide que defendamos al oprimido y vulnerable; 3) porque al hacerlo desanimamos a otros posibles ofensores; y, 4) porque al denunciar al ofensor le proveemos la oportunidad de ver su pecado por lo que es y arrepentirse.
The Bible takes sexual abuse seriously. We should report it because it is the law (in the case of minors) and we must submit to the government God has placed over us to execute his justice, because as God’s people we are charged to stand up for the oppressed and vulnerable, because doing so discourages other would-be offenders, and because reporting the offender provides them with a chance to see their sin for what it is and repent.
