Trust Jesus Christ. He's God, his plan is better. If you love him then keep his commandments and go and sin no more.

Jesus said that anyone whom molests kids it will be better if they tied a millstone around their neck and cast themselves in the sea than to face God's wrath on judgement. I read it and to Me it says God will not forgive kiddy diddlers.
 Quoting: jkm1864

That's not exactly what Jesus said. Let's take a look at one of the most literally translated Bibles, the New American Standard Bible. And lets look at not only the 'millstone' phrase, but also the surrounding context:

Matthew 18:1-6

1 At that time the disciples came to Jesus and said, “Who then is greatest in the kingdom of heaven?”
2 And He called a child to Himself and set him before them, 3 and said, “Truly I say to you, unless you are converted and become like children, you will not enter the kingdom of heaven.
4 “Whoever then humbles himself as this child, he is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven.
5 “And whoever receives one such child in My name receives Me;
6 but whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in Me to stumble, it would be better for him to have a heavy millstone hung around his neck, and to be drowned in the depth of the sea.

As we can see, there is no mention of kiddy diddling. Not to say Jesus condones it or anything, he just didn't say anything about it specifically. The verse has a much wider scope, it's about leading others astray from the sacred path. Kiddy diddling would surely be an example, but it's far from the only way you can do this.

I think it's pretty important to not make up interpretations. There are plenty of people who don't sexually abuse children who still lead others astray and cause them to lose the childlike humility Jesus speaks of. The verse applies to them as well.
