The phrase “victimless crimes” is a code term used by the advocates of a false, satanic philosophy. What they mean when they use the phrase is “sin” or “transgression against the Law of God,” or in other words those prohibited behaviors which the Book of Mormon and other scriptures clearly identify as behaviors that bring down whole civilizations if widely accepted by a majority. There is no such thing as a “victimless crime.” Such behaviors have many victims. They destroy the communities in which they occur and inevitably lead to such obvious crimes against victims as murder, all manner of stealing, all manner of dishonesty and fraud, sexual assaults of all kinds including rape and sexual child abuse, immoral invasions of other countries, corrupt government, and the whole gamut of social problems that rot out a nation at its very core.
The concept of a “victimless crime” is a fraud. There is no such thing. Anyone who actually believes the scriptures, especially the Book of Mormon, would recognize that fraud for what it is. It is a philosophy promoted by the Great Deceiver, the Father of Lies.
People have to live righteous lives and restrain their immoral impulses and resulting behaviors or they cannot be governed by law. And people who cannot be governed by law are always governed by the most powerful predators and tyrants in their midst. Human freedom becomes extinct, and unspeakable horror is the inevitable result. It has been happening over and over since the world began. The Book of Mormon clearly teaches this for those who have ears to hear or eyes to see. Those who cannot learn this from the Book of Mormon either have not read it, or they do not understand it or believe it.
How great is the darkness of a once enlightened mind when it has turned away from the light! It is a terrifying thing to behold.
11 Yea, and then shall they see wars and pestilences, yea, famines and bloodshed, even until the people of Nephi shall become extinct.12 Yea, and this because they shall dwindle in unbelief and fall into the works of darkness, and lasciviousness, and all manner of iniquities; yea, I say unto you, that because they shall sin against so great light and knowledge, yea, I say unto you, that from that day, even the fourth generation shall not all pass away before this great iniquity shall come. (Alma 45:11-12)
Clearly the Lord is talking about “victimless crimes” here. Just what do people think the term “lasciviousness” means?
