Well I guess the bible promotes incest also! Genesis 19:30-36 Thats what Mo was referring to in the old testiment. So was Lot a pedophile???
Seems like nothing was said about marrying within the family structure till the Mosiac law. So Mo was answering a question put to him by someone and doesnt sound like hes making a doctrine out of it so.....Next question!
That was my point he never made a doctrine out of child/adult sexual relationships. things may have been suggested like in the Davidito book and even in that answer he may have implyed but gave no definite yes its perfectly ok. but no actual hard and fast doctrine was made about it!
Just like when the letter Homo's came out and he was saying maybe in the course of real love somethings may be permissable. But later recanted and said homosexual relationships or sodomy was prohibited within the family.
The same about lesbians at first he hinted it might be ok but later changed his stance on it. Sounds to me more like some theories he had but did not teach as fact or sound doctrine.
None of these things became "doctrine" that I know of while I was in the family. What doctrines came out concerning this specific issue(adult/child sex) after I was gone I have no knowledge of since I have not been in contact with the family since 1989.
But the family has on several occasions said that that kind of interaction was definitely prohibited and those who indulged in it would be expelled from the family!
Some choose to believe the family as a whole still practices that. Im more inclined to think if that goes on at all it is done in secret with out the knowledge of others even as with other sins. But the bible says "be sure your sins will find you out"!!!
I have faith in an all seeing all knowing all encompassing God. Nothing escapes his omnipresence. And my God is not a slackard he will deal with sin in his time and season. We will all get a recompense for our works either good works or evil works.....The bible says so.... Revelations 22:11,12
