Sure...that's correct. Were on the same page there.
The incidence is normally so intrusive and disruptive to the child's psychological development that it leads the child into sins of his/her own. It's a viscious and terrible cycle that sometimes results in the repetition of the offense by the molested child onto his or her victim in their own adulthood as they struggle with the incident.
Children that are molested also have a higher occurrence of depression, drug addiction, sexual promiscuity, and other sins. The original offender instilled that seed into their young mind and thus led them into sins of their own persay.
