Reply To: Going home: Even sex offenders should be allowed to rejoin society

Sounds like Alaska has found an answer that other states, especially Michigan, need to model. Successful re-entry for sex offenders has to start with appropriate treatment for them to defeat the evil sex thoughts that come to their mind. They also had to learn that just because you have the “feeling” doesn’t mean you have the right to act upon it. This goes against everything Society teaches through social media, entertainment, and the news that if is feels good you have the right to do it. More important, however, all need to know and this includes victims, that the only real cure and healing comes from the Lord Jesus Christ. He alone can heal the wounded hearts involved and until sex offender and victim alike turn to Him for their answers, neither one will overcome the shame and pain both suffer.
