    Yes. It would be better to be drowned than to offend a little child.

    Did you know that the word comes from Ancient Greece where older men used to mentor teenagers and homosexual relations were common for all young males in that environment. Then when the lads grew up, they left this relationship and took wives.

    Not until the Classical period in Greek history was this banned.

    Yes. The bible says being a pedophile is acceptable verses being a gay male. See the story of Sodom and Gomorrah.

      The only children in that story were the daughters of the most godly man in town, who were offered up for rape by Lot before he impregnated them himself.

    Yes. All sex outside of marriage is sin. In addition, harming a child is something that deserves a millstone tied around the neck while the person is thrown into the ocean. So pedophilia is evil according to the Bible.

    And like all sins, it is forgiven when the person believes in Jesus for eternal life.

    .

    Nobody can be good enough to avoid hell. The truth is that death leads to immediate heaven or hell, depending only on whether the person believed in Jesus for eternal life, or not.

    .

    The truth is that Jesus loves you and wants to bless your life freely :) Most of all, Jesus wants you with Him forever, and not in hell. The truth is that every belief except one will lead to eternal torment in the lake of fire for every person. Because nothing pays for our sins except the death and blood of Jesus, the sacrifice of Jesus that is already accomplished by Him . Jesus loves you! The truth is that Jesus is God, and Jesus died on the cross to pay for all of our sins in full, and then Jesus resurrected from the dead. Nothing else pays for our sins, not works, not deeds, not religions. So the only way to heaven and to avoid hell, is by believing in Jesus for eternal life (John 6:47), without adding any of your own works (Romans 4:5). Believe in Jesus to take you to heaven, and you will be in heaven, no matter what, guaranteed. That easy, thanks to Jesus! Tell Jesus that you thank Him that you will be with Him in heaven when you die, because you believe in Jesus! It is too late to be saved, after death

    Simple answer no it doesn’t, neither directly nor indirectly. That's hardly surprising though as this interest in paedophillia is fairly recent. It's a concept that couldn't really have existed before the notion of an “age of consent”

    No. Matthew 18 seems to be talking about those who cause others to lose their faith. It does not say anything about sex. It is not as though there aren't plenty of other verses that explicitly condemn certain forms of sexual behaviour, so it looks as though the authors of the Bible did not consider paedophilia to be too much of a problem.

      yes it was from the bible. That sex is only accepted for married men and women, not children and adults etc.

    Not directly.  Such sins come under the umbrella of "sexual immorality" which is condemned throughout the Bible (Rev 21:8).
