Hebrews 2:10-13
10 For it was fitting for Him, for whom are all things and by whom are all things, in bringing many sons to glory, to make the captain of their salvation perfect through sufferings. 11 For both He who sanctifies and those who are being sanctified are all of one, for which reason He is not ashamed to call them brethren, 12 saying:
“I will declare Your name to My brethren;
In the midst of the assembly I will sing praise to You.”
13 And again:
“I will put My trust in Him.”
And again:
“Here am I and the children whom God has given Me.”
NKJV

He added that when one humbles himself as a little child, that person is great in the kingdom (Matthew 18:4). Christ loved the little children and pointed out that God is praised out of the mouth of the innocent little children.

In America, almost every day we hear of little children being kidnapped, sexually abused and murdered by unrepentant sex offenders, and uncaring parents and caretakers. How long will this wickedness be tolerated by the general public and by those who are appointed to bring about justice? Little children who are abused are powerless and need someone to speak up for them and act on their behalf. Continue reading “Abuse of the Innocents”
