为什么有那么多的天主教神父猥亵孩童?

也许有人不喜欢这篇文章的标题,我很抱歉。我相信有很多天主教神父并没有猥亵孩童。但有一点我们不得不承认,天主教中存在这一问题更胜于其他任何教会。这是有原因的——圣经给了我们答案。

在1000多年中,天主教将单身等同于对神的忠诚。他们认为那些最忠实于神的人不应该结婚,因为他们已经“许配给神”了。结果,天主教的主教、神父、修女甚至教皇都不结婚。这个想法也许听上去很圣洁、很蒙福,但却并非出于神的意思。

他们应当结婚
圣经中,保罗写信教导提摩太关于牧师所必须具备的条件。保罗写道,要成为牧师,必须要结婚并且照管好自己的家“人若不知道管理自己的家,焉能照管神的教会呢?”[1]

显然神希望主教(也称为牧师/监督/长老)先结婚并且很好地建立家庭,而后才能带领神的教会。可以肯定的是,一个年长且有着幸福家庭的人,比未婚的人更有能力在生活中引导他人。坦率地说,天主教的主教们并不符合圣经对于牧师的要求。

性欲
有些人指着使徒保罗说:“保罗没有结婚,这绝对是虔诚的表现。”保罗是没有结婚,但他称这是“神的恩赐”。接着又说“与其欲火攻心,倒不如嫁娶为妙。”[2]

究竟是谁把这样的欲望放在我们里面呢? 是神。性欲是自然的并且是属于婚姻的。坚持认为对神敬虔与性欲不能并存,是错误的,并且会制造很多问题—正如我们在今天的天主教会所看到的。再者说,彼得是结婚的,玛丽亚—耶稣的母亲在主耶稣之后又生育了其他孩子。

解决方法
也许你或是你认识的人曾被基督徒伤害过。请不要将基督徒与主耶稣相混淆。许多人自称是基督徒,实则不然。许多真正的基督徒也是有罪的,也会伤害到别人。然而他们毕竟不是基督。我们跟随的是主耶稣基督,他在圣经中教导我们当如何去行。他教导我们主教/牧师应当结婚并且养育子女。他也教导我们他愿意赦免我们的过犯。

诚然,当我们遵照神的教导时,一切都会更美好。

Why Do So Many Catholic Priests Molest Children?

Some people may be upset by the title to this article. I apologize, I am sure many catholic priests who do not molest children, but one needs to admit that the problem seems to exist more be among Catholic priests than any other church. There is a reason – and it is in the Bible.

For over 1,000 years the Catholic church has equated devotion to God with celibacy. They have said that those who are most devoted to God should not get married since they are already “married to God.” As a result Catholic bishops, priests, nuns, even the pope are not married. This idea may sound holy and blessed but it is not from God.

Bishops Should Marry

In the Bible Paul writes to Timothy about prerequisites to becoming bishops. He writes that in order to become a bishop, a man must first be married and run his own family well. We then read, “because if a man does not know how to run his own family, how can he run God’s church?” [1]
Clearly God expects church bishops – also known as pastors / overseers / elders – to first be married and successful in their families before they can lead in God’s church. To be sure, an older man with a successful marriage and family is better equipped to guide others in life than someone who has never been married. To be blunt: Catholic bishops do not meet Bible bishop qualifications.

Sexual Passion

Some refer to Paul the apostle. They say: “Paul was not married. Surely this is a sign of devotion.”
Paul was not married, but he calls this “a gift from God.” He then says it is better to marry than to burn with passion. [2]
Who put that passion in us? God did. Sexual passion is natural and belongs in marriage. To insist that devotion to God cannot go hand in hand with that passion is wrong and leads to trouble as we see it in the Catholic church today. Furthermore Peter was married, and Mary, Jesus’ mother, had other children after Jesus.

The solution

Perhaps you have been, or you know someone who has been hurt by Catholics or Christians. Please do not confuse Christians with Jesus. Many people say they are Christians, but are not. Many true Christians sin and hurt others. Nevertheless, they are not Christ. We follow Him and He teaches us in His Bible how things should be. He teaches us that Bishops / pastors should be married with children. He also teaches us that we can be forgiven when we make mistakes. [3]
Truly, things are much better when we follow God’s Way.
