…their brains & right/wrong functions are warped. The evil is carved in their psyche.

You are describing Satan, not a human beings.

There are, I suppose, unredeemable souls. But God's history is filled with redemption of the unredeemable.

…they are hardly comparable.

I think we would like to think that our temptations and our sins are less than others.

I appreciate your reply..

True. A sin is a sin in God's eyes. To Him an adulterer is just as condemned to hell as a child molester.

We are not, however, speaking of the spiritual realm, we are speaking of earth. Sure, child molesters are redeemable in God's eyes, but that does not change the fact that they could walk among children daily. They have to deal with other humans who "don't get" that a soul can be changed.

It would not only be temptation they are dealing with, it would be changing an almost physical characteristic... Some molesters are like that. It would be best, no matter how clean & forgiven their hearts, for them to not be free to live outside prison walls.

There is redemption & then there is justice. Sometimes a wrongdoer must live with the justice even after being redeemed.
