Jonathan Freedland, a Columnist for the Guardian newspaper and Columnist of the year, when reviewing the current situation and the extent of Paedophilia in society today made the following remarks in the Daily Mirror on Saturday
January 18 2003.

Maybe we should adjust our understanding  of child abuse; to realise it is not just the oddball who is sexually aroused by the young, but large numbers of people.

Perhaps we should go further and face the dreadful thought; that the evidence of Paedophilia is now so widespread that sexual interest in the young may not be the freakish exception we once believed--but an all too common, though vile, part of  human sexuality.

He continued later with these remarks: One in three women and one in four men had either been abused or on the receiving end of unwanted sexual attraction before the age of 18.

Case after case suggest this is no longer the work of the occasional monster preying on kids in playgrounds. It is too widespread for that. We have to face the more awful possibility; that this enemy lurks within human sexuality itself.

Jonathan Freedland Columnist of the Year It is a sobering thought that every Paedophile once looked  an "innocent" child, and in fact many of those "innocent" children you know today, have a high possibility of being  future child molester, or even a murderer of children.

This could even be your own child!

It is not uncommon for children to molest other children, and it is a sure warning that they are more than likely the Paedophiles of tomorrow, when it does happen. It is also true that when children are murdered by other children, this is often  accompanied by evidence of sexual  assault on the unfortunate victim.

Paedophiles are born Paedophiles and there is ample evidence to suggest that they can be identified during childhood or in their teen years. Children may be abused and claim later that this caused them to abuse other children, which might be true in some cases, but many abusers are never abused themselves. The curse of abuser is passed into the "innocent" child before they are born. Why?

To answer this question we need to examine the only authoritative source of God's own truth. The answer lies in the family or generational line of the child. It inherits the curse because of generational iniquity of his/her forbears.

Common causes are all types of sexual sin, child murder (including all abortions), the practice of witchcraft, the occult, and idolatry.

We live in an age where we see all these ungodly abhorrence's increasing daily, and we are seeing an increasing upsurge of devaluing life itself, which in turn devalues the life and preciousness of children.

We have no idea how many Paedophiles inhabit the United Kingdom, except those who are apprehended, but occasionally officialdom allows us a glimpse of the horrific situation for children who are victims, but it is estimated that the number of known abusers in the United Kingdom exceeds 200,000, but the real number could be two million.

In a small town in the north of England, it was reported by the local social services that foster homes were needed for 28 families of children, the victims of abuse.

One would suspect that whole families of children meant multiple victims of incest in those families. Not one eyelid fluttered nor did one a letter appear in the local newspaper questioning these facts. Is incest so common place?

It is likely that these children too will inherit a similar or the same sexual trait either because of how they have been used or because of previous family history.

Incest is a common familial activity, hidden secretly from outside eyes and one could suspect that the link between incest and the record number of underage pregnancies in that same town. (  See -The hidden agenda to hide incestuous abuse)

Jesus said:

(John 8:43 NIV)  Why is my language not clear to you? Because you are unable to hear what I say.

(John 8:44 NIV)  You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out your father's desire. He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies

(John 8:45 NIV)  Yet because I tell the truth, you do not believe me!

In the natural world there is no hope, because there is no worldly cure. There is no hope in religion, otherwise the priesthood of the Catholic Church would not have succumbed and covered up abuse with such tragic circumstances.

The answer is dealing with the root cause in repentance for our own sin, and for our forbears sin. See generational iniquity.

We need to break the curse  that bind all who suffer through the consequences of sexual sin and other iniquity, and that can only be achieved through the redemption of the whole degenerate being, by the saving power of Jesus Christ.

(John 3:2 NIV)  He came to Jesus at night and said, "Rabbi, we know you are a teacher who has come from God. For no one could perform the miraculous signs you are doing if God were not with him."

(John 3:3 NIV)  In reply Jesus declared, "I tell you the truth, no one can see the kingdom of God unless he is born again."

(John 3:4 NIV)  "How can a man be born when he is old?" Nicodemus asked. "Surely he cannot enter a second time into his mother's womb to be born!"

(John 3:5 NIV)  Jesus answered, "I tell you the truth, no one can enter the kingdom of God unless he is born of water and the Spirit.

(John 3:6 NIV)  Flesh gives birth to flesh, but the Spirit gives birth to spirit.

(John 3:7 NIV)  You should not be surprised at my saying, 'You must be born again.'

(John 3:8 NIV)  The wind blows wherever it pleases. You hear its sound, but you cannot tell where it comes from or where it is going. So it is with everyone born of the Spirit."

(John 3:9 NIV)  "How can this be?" Nicodemus asked.

(John 3:10 NIV)  "You are Israel's teacher," said Jesus, "and do you not understand these things?

(John 3:11 NIV)  I tell you the truth, we speak of what we know, and we testify to what we have seen, but still you people do not accept our testimony.

(John 3:12 NIV)  I have spoken to you of earthly things and you do not believe; how then will you believe if I speak of heavenly things?

(John 3:13 NIV)  No one has ever gone into heaven except the one who came from heaven--the Son of Man.

(John 3:14 NIV)  Just as Moses lifted up the snake in the desert, so the Son of Man must be lifted up,

(John 3:15 NIV)  that everyone who believes in him may have eternal life.

(John 3:16 NIV)  "For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.

(John 3:17 NIV)  For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him.

(John 3:18 NIV)  Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because he has not believed in the name of God's one and only Son.

This scripture reveals the truth and foundation for discipleship walking with Jesus Christ, in the victory that He achieved with His birth, life and ignominious death on the cross of shame.

It is in this victory that He gives His disciples the power and authority to deal with the entrapment and lies of the evil one and his cohorts, afflicting men on earth and in the heavenly realms.

(Matthew 16:17 NIV)  Jesus replied, "Blessed are you, Simon son of Jonah, for this was not revealed to you by man, but by my Father in heaven.

(Matthew 16:18 NIV)  And I tell you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church, and the gates of Hades will not overcome it.

(Matthew 16:19 NIV)  I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven; whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven."

(Matthew 16:20 NIV)  Then he warned his disciples not to tell anyone that he was the Christ.

To recognise within their own life the lie that they love children whilst being driven to commit gross evil on them, at the behest of and at the instigation of Satan.

To recognise their own hopelessness and helplessness in overcoming the evil thoughts, corrupt and impure desires towards children, and to turn everything over to the one who overcame and is victorious against the wiles of the devil. That person is the living Jesus Christ, who empowers His disciples to do the same, in His Name and authority.

Through Him, even the Paedophile can overcome and gain victory, if he so desires it.

In repentance (turning away from their sinful way) by faith asking Him into their lives and to seek prayer and spiritual ministry to be delivered from Satan's power with their sexuality healed.

This appears to be nigh impossible for the active Paedophile to take on, except when they have been apprehended. To disciples of Jesus this must challenge us in how we practice our faith, because we need to stand as intercessors for all outside Christ's body, which includes Paedophiles.

Are we praying for them?

Children need physical protection and we believe that it  our responsibility to provide this, but we also know that as disciples of Jesus, we often deny our children divine protection, which is their due and right before God. (see total child protection),

They have the spiritual protection of angels because children are very real unspoilt spiritual beings, close to the heart of God. That is why Satan uses all types of abusive behaviour to steal and destroy all that is precious to God in that most beautiful part of His creation, His children.

(Matthew 18:6 NIV)  But if anyone causes one of these little ones who believe in me to sin, it would be better for him to have a large millstone hung around his neck and to be drowned in the depths of the sea.

(Matthew 18:7 NIV)  "Woe to the world because of the things that cause people to sin! Such things must come, but woe to the man through whom they come!

(Matthew 18:8 NIV)  If your hand or your foot causes you to sin cut it off and throw it away. It is better for you to enter life maimed or crippled than to have two hands or two feet and be thrown into eternal fire.

(Matthew 18:9 NIV)  And if your eye causes you to sin, gouge it out and throw it away. It is better for you to enter life with one eye than to have two eyes and be thrown into the fire of hell.

(Matthew 18:10 NIV)  "See that you do not look down on one of these little ones. For I tell you that their angels in heaven always see the face of my Father in heaven. 

What then about the abuser who is unable or is unwilling to change and remains a constant threat to children? What should our attitude be towards them and what should we advocate in how society manages and controls them? This is the victory that offers the only hope to anybody held in the bondage and cursed with the affliction of the Paedophile. What hope then for the unfortunate Paedophiles, trapped in a world of compulsive, addictive sexual urges toward children, that makes them the most reviled, feared and hated person in society.

The world and many in the church react with devilish inspired  horror, hate, revilement and worst of all, in a spirit of fear. All these are opposites to what Jesus showed and what we are taught in scripture.

We need to protect our children, but in whatever way we do it, we need to show understanding, compassion, love and certainly in no spirit of fear. We need to lead the way as our forbears led the way in dealing with many social evils. We need to influence those lawmakers in society, by showing them the truth, and especially teaching those who claim to belong to the body of Christ.

The evil of harming children will not go away, because society is reaping what has sowed. Indeed things will become much worse, unless society learns a new respect for human life, the unborn baby, the aged and the infirm. Society today is under the  influence of a group of minorities  who using the guise of "political correctness" and "false gender" promotion to push fashionable ungodly values, therefore acting as the servants of Satan.

False gender promotion also acts as an "excuse of a legal shield" for Paedophiles. They claim a similar status by justifying their "orientation" towards their child victims, as a normal sexual development within themselves.

False gender development and Paedophilia have common roots which are spiritual.

Unfortunately for the Paedophile (thankfully), differentiation in recent natural world history has made a giant leap in the marked acceptance of one, and  complete denial of the "normality" of the other. How this will change as the consequence of the continuing decline in morality remains to be seen. During 2003 and 2004  have been dark years in this respect, within the United Kingdom.

In the life of discipleship with Jesus, we should make sure that when we see these developments in modern society, it has a significant impact upon us. This is in order to make us react to the situation in a Christ like way. When we see people struggling and sinking into bondage to the evil one, would we not throw them a lifeline, that they may be saved by their own choice.

(Proverbs 24:12 NLT)  Don't try to avoid responsibility by saying you didn't know about it. For God knows all hearts, and he sees you. He keeps watch over your soul, and he knows you knew! And he will judge all people according to what they have done.


The present situation in community child protection is ludicrous and is bound to failure, because it has no comprehensive true understanding or any motivation for change.

Because re-offending is a way of life to the majority of offenders against children, the idea of locking up offenders and then freeing them in a community like normal "villains" will not work, despite "tagging" and a register that may be complied with, or not!

The potential for temptation and a free supply of victims, is greater than any inbuilt precautions in a man made programme of "rehabilitation". The guile and deviousness of the Paedophile intent on gratifying his/her urges are not fuelled by human resources, but by the ungodly spiritual oppression within themselves.

Hence the very high re-offending rate and why the pattern of offences and the science of grooming defies human comprehension in its selectivity, and artistry of manipulation and control.

These defy human groupings, cultures and any man made assumption that  international, national or local  Paedophile networks are men inspired.

It is devil inspired and spiritually resourced by him into the very heart of man.

We have grouped our responses to the challenge along several lines.

Some of our ideas would require radical secular re-thinking and action regarding the management and care of Paedophiles.

Recognition in law that Paedophilia is an extraordinary human condition requiring extraordinary measures to manage it.

A reclassification of the condition recognising that it not curable by human means, and whilst it at present does not fall into Psychological or Psychiatric medicine, consider that its inclusion be a sub-division with these specialities, with powers of detention.

Private and philanthropic special secure units, similar to the high security psychiatric hospitals but staffed specifically by trained  teams to include qualified Christian Psychiatrists and nurses/counsellors within a ministry team.

Each unit should have a maximum occupancy of twelve in single rooms and close staff supervision of all other accommodation and grounds.

Opportunity should be given to non offender Paedophiles to become voluntary patients.

The reclassification of Paedophilia as an "mental illness" should include powers of detention for life for child assault/murder/rape within a secure unit or prison because there will always be a risk to children.

Recognition that Paedophilia and most sexual "disorders" are familial and that as such, children may show early manifestations in their behaviour. Children who show this type of behaviour require specialist care and management in their own homes, or if this is not possible within a suitable caring environment, with a healing ministry team and the     support of a Christian Psychiatrist.

Many more are afflicted with the Paedophilia trait than would make comfortable reading, and  many recoil in horror in carrying out what comes into their thoughts. When it comes to looking for help to whom can they turn?

This ministry has helped a handful of people in seven years but ten times that number have fallen by the wayside, not believing or not wanting to be helped
