Can a "sexual predator" be saved? Or is he/she damned to hell?

In short, yes!  And praise God because if he/she can't there is no hope for any of us!

Let's take a fresh look at the New Testament Mark 5:1-20.

 

This is the famous account of Jesus restoring the demonic who had so many demons within him that they filled a herd of 4,000 pigs.  So, if someone is evil enough to possess 4,000 demons, what are we to do with them? - Mark 5 illustrates -follow Jesus! When Jesus looked at this crazed demonic, Jesus perhaps saw a brother, created by God in God's image and likeness.  As such Jesus did not reign down fire from heaven to destroy this troubled man, instead Jesus had compassion and cleansed this man of his demons. 

 

Jesus teaches us that if a demonic with 4,000 demons is not off the table, then no one today is off the table for receiving our love and compassion, which in turn, breaks strongholds and leads to restoration.
