"there is no such thing as evil"

I really don't understand what you mean by that. Of course there is evil. The evil of suffering caused by the drunk driver killing or injuring people. The evil of sadistic prison guard / social worker taking advantage of his power to hurt their charges. And ultimately the evil of Satan and his demons seeking to destroy the wonderful creation that the good Creator God has given us to enjoy.

The issue of whether sexual contact with an underage child is always evil comes down to when sex is right. The Bible and Christian tradition have always argued that it's intended as the foundation of the marriage bond 'therefore a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife and they shall become one flesh' is Jesus' teaching (Mt 19:5) It is part of the tragedy of being a BL that we are not free to enjoy that bond, much as we may be tempted to, because we aren't going to make it permanent. Does that mean we should avoid all intimate relationships with boys? Not necessarily: to the extent the relationship doesn't become sexualised, they can be entirely good, becoming a blessing for both participants. But if your attitude is being willing 'to go with him wherever this relationship may lead', you are abdicating your responsibility as an adult not to allow a child to come to sin, a crime for which Jesus reserves some of his harshest words: 'but whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in me to sin, it would be better for him to have a great millstone fastened around his neck and to be drowned in the depth of the sea'.

Being a Christian is hard work. God doesn't give us an easy ride - He's preparing us to be with Him forever. The fact that our churches are uniquely hate filled towards CLs is a symptom of their failure to take their own sins seriously, but ultimately is no excuse for us to disobey God. And that's what being a 'Christian' is all about: it's about living as someone seeking to do God's will. If we choose to persist in our sin, then we will NOT inherit the kingdom of God (1 Cor 6:9,10). Jesus told the woman taken in adultery 'Go and sin no more' (John 8:11) not 'There, there, it doesn't matter what you did or do in the future'. 'There is more rejoicing in heaven over one sinner who REPENTS...' (Lk 15:7), i.e. decides to try to live a new life. Will we always succeed? Of course not. But the definition of a Christian is to be committed to trying, not just living how we want to with a vague expectation that we'll be let into heaven eventually regardless.
