As the end of time approaches us the cup of sin and iniquity becomes more and more full; the violation of God’s holy law becomes more and more pronounced, and the horror of sin, as sin develops, is simply beyond belief. As the end of time approaches us, sin is no more called sin but acceptable practice, and almost anything goes.

Yes indeed, almost anything goes! What is that anything to which I refer? What is the sin which is simply deemed acceptable practice, but which is in reality so horrible that it is beyond belief? That sin you can read about in the September 7 issue of Timemagazine. It is a sin that has to do with sex. Not, you understand, sex between a man and a woman with whom he is not married, or sex between a woman and a man with whom she is not married. That horrible sin the Bible calls adultery and fornication, and it has been deemed acceptable practice, or if not acceptable practice, at least practiced for many years. Nor do I refer to the sin of homosexuality, the sin described thus in Romans 1: “. . .men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly. . . .” That sin too has been practiced for many years; and today, even in the so-called church it is becoming acceptable practice. But I refer to sex as today it is being deemed acceptable amongst children. Not men with men, not women with women, but children with children, and even parents with their children, which is incest! That is that acceptable practice—that “anything goes” sin—that is being advocated today.

That that sin is being advocated today the above mentioned article gives ample proof. In that article, entitled “Cradle-To-Grave Intimacy,” you will find a picture of a book that goes by the title Show Me. Directly under that title you will find the picture of two children sitting naked. Directly under that you read these words, “A Picture Book of Sex for Children and Parents; Photography and Captions by Will McBride; Explanatory Text by Dr. Helga Fleischhauer-Hardt.” And you also discover that that book is a national bestseller for the meager fare of only $7.95. In the article itself various quotations are given which represent the views of various people who openly advocate this horrible sin. Allow me to present a few of those quotations.

According to the argument, (the argument for child-sexuality—R.F.) children are sexual beings who need to develop skills early in life. The child has a fundamental right, says Mary S. Calderone, head of the influential Sex Information and Education Council of the U.S., “to know about sexuality and to he sexual.” 

And stranger is the theory that children will grow up, askew if they do not have early sex. As Sexologist John Money of John Hopkins wrote in The Sciences magazine: “It is almost certain that human beings, like the other primates, require a period of early sexual rehearsal play.” 

One of the more intellectually disheveled of the new apostles of child sex is Family Therapist Larry Constantine of Acton, Mass., whose views sold like a satire on how to raise children. Says .he: “Children really are a disenfranchised minority. They should have the right to express themselves sexually, which means that they may or may not have contact with people older than themselves.” What about older men preying on four-and five-year olds? Constantine would argue that if children were properly educated about sex, a child could always say no. 

Wardell Pomeroy, co-author of the original Kinsey reports, says incest “can sometimes be beneficial” to children. Dutch Psychologist Frits Bernard, author of numerous articles and books on pedophilia, (abnormal sexual desire in an adult for children—R.F.) says adult-child sex is basically innocent. 

Another common theme is that adult-child sex must be judged by the quality of the relationship involved. Sociologist Floyd Martinson of Minnesota’s Gustavus Adolphus College thinks adults involved in affectionate sexual relationships with tots should not go to jail. “Intimate human relations are important and precious,” he feels. “I’d like to see as few restrictions placed on them as possible.” Psychologist Douglas Powell of the Harvard Health Service says: “I have not seen anyone harmed by this so long as it occurs in a relationship with somebody who really cares about the child.” 

Valida Davila of the Childhood Sensuality Circle, a far-out sex group in San Diego welcomes the new writing: “We believe children should begin sex at birth. It causes a lot of problems not to practice incest.”

Now, as far as the article in which all these quotations are found is concerned, a few observations are in order. In the first place, as is evident from the very quotations themselves, the article is not at all in favor of this “anything goes” form of horrible sin. That is simply obvious from the quotations. And too, that is obvious from the fact that this article quotes from various individuals who stand opposed to such a sin. So that what we have in this article is really the world condemning (at least after a fashion) what the world itself is advocating. However, it must be clearly understood that this condemnation, on the part of the world, of what the world itself is advocating is only “after a fashion”! The world’s condemnation of what the world itself is advocating has to do only with the reality that if sexuality is practiced amongst children, and that if sexuality is practiced between parents and their children, untold psychological damage and hurt may be done to the children. The article quotes a psychiatrist by the name of Edward Ritvo who says this concerning this child-sexuality: “Childhood sexuality is like playing with a loaded gun.” That is, it can have a horrible effect upon all concerned. But nowhere in the article does the article condemn this horrible sin to be exactly that, sin! A filling up of the measure of iniquity! A horrible abomination in the sight of God! The article does not do that. The Bible does. Read for example the eighteenth chapter of the Book of Leviticus. (And we must have nothing of those who say that what we have in Leviticus 18, or in any of the other chapters of the Old Testament for that matter, is an ancient relic of the past that applied only to the day and age in which it was written, but which does not apply to our day and age.) There God says in verse six, “None of you shall approach to any that is near of kin to him, to uncover their nakedness: I am the Lord.” That is what God says. God, and we with God, must call such abomination, sin! A sin it was, so God told the children of Israel, that the Canaanites who dwelt in the land before them openly advocated and practiced. God says in Leviticus 18:24, 25, “Defile not ye yourselves in any of these things: for in all these the nations are defiled which I cast out before you: and the land is defiled: therefore I do visit the iniquity thereof upon it, and the land itself vomiteth out her inhabitants.” Evidently the Canaanites who dwelt in the land of Canaan had practiced all the vile sins that are described in this chapter, including the one with which this article deals. And for those sins God spued forth His wrath, His judgment, His fiery indignation upon the ungodly world of the Canaanites of that day. And we must make no mistake, God will surely do so again! God is not mocked! Upon a world which condones such sins, and yes, even upon a world which condemns such sins merely on the ground that such sins do psychological damage, God will come in judgment! And when He does, the sin of child-sexuality will not be like playing with a loaded gun, but on the contrary, it will be playing with fire—the fires of everlasting hell! That first of all. But the second observation that must be made concerning this sin and this article is that the article points out that this sin is rarely advocated openly and directly today. It says:

The idea (notice, it calls child-sexuality, and along with that, incest, an idea and not a sin—R.F.) is rarely presented directly—most of the researchers, doctors and counselors who believe it have the wit to keep a low profile and tuck the idea away neatly in a longer, more conventional speech or article.

Perhaps! But I wonder about that. I wonder if it can even be said that such an idea is rarely presented directly and advocated openly. The reason I wonder about that is that if it is true that such an “anything goes” sin like child-sexuality and incest is rarely presented directly and advocated openly, why then is it that a book entitled Show Me, a picture book of sex for children and parents, is a national bestseller? Why is that?

Let us not be deceived. Such sins are openly advocated. They are advocated in a world that is rapidly becoming ripe for judgment. The cup of iniquity is almost full. The day of our Lord Jesus Christ, when He shall come to do judgment and justice, is not all that far off. It can not be, when we live in a world, a wicked world, where anything goes.

As the end of time approaches us the cup of sin and iniquity becomes more and more full; the violation of God’s holy law becomes more and more pronounced, and the horror of sin, as sin develops, is simply beyond belief. As the end of time approaches us, sin is no more called sin but acceptable practice, and almost anything goes.
