perhaps you shld know this story about sins........

a group of villagers dragged a woman to Jesus

& ask him to give punishments.............

for committing adultery...........

They were hoping that the woman be stoned to death.............

On the one hand, Jesus says every life is precious.............

on the other he could pardon.................

so he told the woman, GO AWAY while you can...........

& softly......but NEVER SIN again..............
What's on your mind now........ooooooooooooooo la la....Kind Regards

this event happened some years ago.The abused child is now 18 years old.The law says that she can prossecute him now at her age ,by herself.You see now she has the legal right by the law to make a personal prosecution to that bastard.
That is why I am talking about that.She is doubtful.She says that he deserves to be punished because he may do the same to some other students.If the 18 year lady takes him to court now then he will lose his job ,since he is a primary teacher.
This is my dilemma.
I suggest punishment but am I right?The priest told me no.I should let him be punished by somebody else and not by me.This is partly correct.
My second thought is the following.If everybody says the same like the priest then this guy will remain unpunishable for ever.

I have been in a dilemma recently. The law says punishement.The christian religion says forgiveness...


The Christian church also has laws. If you decide to follow your religion and forgive then you need to be satisfied that the same child and other children are not at risk in the future. I think your religion would be happy with the application of the law if it protects such children but not if it is simply for revenge.

If this teacher is a predator of children then he is in the wrong job. However, you need to be satisfied that there is absolutely no doubt that the teacher is guilty of a criminal act before reporting the matter to the police because the resulting investigations will destroy lives whether the teacher is guilty or not.

Perhaps you should discuss the matter with the teacher's principle before making an official complaint.
