No, it is not okay for priests and pastors to have sex with young boys and girls. In fact, it is a great sin. The Bible tells us not to have sexual intercourse with anyone other than our spouses.
- "Let the husband fulfill his duty to his wife, and likewise also the wife to her husband. 4 The wife does not have authority over her own body, but the husband does; and likewise also the husband does not have authority over his own body, but the wife does. 5 Stop depriving one another, except by agreement for a time that you may devote yourselves to prayer, and come together again lest Satan tempt you because of your lack of self-control. 6 But this I say by way of concession, not of command,” (1 Cor. 7:3-6).
- “Or do you not know that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived; neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor homosexuals, 10 nor thieves, nor the covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers, shall inherit the kingdom of God,” (1 Cor. 6:9-10).
- “You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall not commit adultery’; 28 but I say to you, that everyone who looks on a woman to lust for her has committed adultery with her already in his heart,” (Matt. 5:27-28).
- “Let marriage be held in honor among all, and let the marriage bed be undefiled; for fornicators and adulterers God will judge,” (Heb. 13:4).
