Are We Turning a Blind Eye?

But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in Me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea. Woe unto the world because of offences! for it must needs be that offences come; but woe to that man by whom the offence cometh! Matthew 18:6-7

Pain is caused by those who take advantage of children of any age. Have they no feelings? Are they inhuman that they can sit behind computers playing games with children implying they are a similar age and arrange a meeting? How can those who approach kids to help them look for a lost pet sleep at night? What about those who volunteer in groups that appeal to youth who see them as a role model? How can they look themselves in the mirror?

Maybe this doesn't seem like it ties in with Christian Overeaters Past and Present blog posts, but I have read so many times that there are many in our world who are overweight because of abuse that has occurred at one time or another in their lives. Remember that doesn't mean that all overweight people have experienced abuse, but there are lots who have. Lots of people of any age who have no way to console themselves, but find food as the only means to deal with the pain in their hearts from this devastating event.

 How do we help those who have experienced such devastating events? Well, one way is not to turn a blind eye when things are exposed in the media, because it's become an all too common occurrence. Another is to change the laws on so many different levels. The burden of proof lies on the child who has been taken advantage of and the perpetrator is free, other wise. Additionally, the laws only protect children of a certain age. I think that there should be no age limit on protecting children or for that matter, anyone who is abused. Why should anyone get any less protection, because they are in their teens or older? Consider contacting an advocacy group to find out more about what you can do, because God doesn't want us to turn a blind eye to this any more! But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in Me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea.
