Abuse

God created us with love in mind. God gave us the gift of hands and feet so that we could work and provide care for our families. There are some that use this great gift to harm children, women, and other men.

Jesus said in Mark 9:42, “And whosoever shall offend one of theses little ones that believe in me, it is better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he were cast into the sea.”

Jesus even suggested that it is better for an abuser to cut off his own hand rather than use it to hit others. It is also wrong for us to take another man or another woman into our arms for the purpose of committing adultery and fornication. Adulterers are much more likely to abuse children from a previous marriage.

“And if thy hand offend thee, cut it off: it is better for thee to enter into life maimed, than having two hands to go into hell, into the fire that shall never be quenched: Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched.” (Mark 9:43-44)

Based upon what Jesus said, those that inflict emotional and physical pain upon others, retain their ability to feel pain even after they die.

God is about love, repentance, and forgiveness – not sacrifice and punishment! Do not use your hands to hurt or harm others! Do not break up a family!
