Editor’s note: What is absolutely fascinating about this piece and Bayly is that he is clearly calling for the death penalty for pedophiles and predators, yet when called out for it by another pastor in a blog he starts immediately back tracking in another blog posting saying that’s not what he said at all. He’s referring to the awful situation of Doug Wilson supporting a child molester in many of these posts. What is comical about all of this is that if you look at Bayly’s page, starting at the bottom read the articles it’s like this one followed by the bit posted here last night, awful assertion and attack followed by retracting the words he said the very next day. Jeez, pick a position and stick to it dude..what does it say in the Bible about a double minded man?
Let us assume a case in which an adult man1 who confesses faith in Jesus Christ is found guilty in civil and church courts of multiple acts of predatory sexual violence over several years time against minor children unrelated to him by blood or marriage. Regardless of whether this man confessed Christian faith or appeared to be remorseful and repentant, Christians of sound spiritual judgment would, I believe, not condemn the penal codes of many centuries of Christendom which put such a man under sentence of death. We would agree that capital punishment of this crime against children is just to all concerned, from the sinner himself, to his victims and their families, to the church and her members, and society at large. Our Lord warned…
it would be better for a man to have a millstone hung on his neck and be thrown into the sea than to commit such terrible wickedness:
