“””Christians who want to sin should be sat in a corner until they ask God for forgiveness. “”
You might like how the Early Church Fathers handled this...From Saint Basil in the 4th century....
“The cleric or monk who molests youths or boys or is caught kissing or committing some turpitude, let him be whipped in public, deprived of his crown (tonsure) and, after having his head shaved, let his face be covered with spittle; and [let him be] bound in chains, condemned to six months in prison...after which let him live in a separate cell under the custody of a wise elder with great spiritual experience...let him be subject to prayers, vigils, and manual work always under the guard of two spiritual brothers, without being allowed to have any relationship ... with young people.”-Saint Basil of Cesarea
Hey, I like St. Basil. ;O)
