Writing for God, Fighting Human Trafficking

Linda Rodante

The Cry of Our Hearts

When people become so devalued that all they mean to someone else is a way to an end (satisfy my lust, satisfy my greed, or get out of my way so I can get on with my life), then we (as a people, as the human race) are in trouble. Human Trafficking is a symptom of ungodliness. Perhaps you don’t like to hear that, but when you hear of girls ages 12, 13, 14 and older being forced to have sex up to 30 times a night to satisfy some man’s lust, then you have to wonder. Annually, from 100,000 to 300,000 American children are forced into Domestic Minor Sex Trafficking each year. And then each day, each night, they are forced into sex acts, beaten, tortured, sometimes killed. For what??? So someone can satisfy their lust?!!  Stop the pornography! Stop the lust! God says not to sacrifice your children on your lust, yet we do. Through sexual slavery, through abortion, abuse of all kinds. Not a fun, agreeable topic, is it? And then you wonder why God talks about vengeance? We were not created for this horror–we were created for a love relationship with God and with each other. Love (not violence, not humiliation, not abuse) is what God wants. However, he sees the horror of what we are doing, and he warns us that He is a righteous God.  To that, I say, hallelujah!

    Linda I’m so glad you are bringing more awareness to this horrible problem. It’s so hard to believe that this is going on all around us. It’s just hard for me to comprehend even though I know it’s true. This topic really stirs something within me. I’ll plan to get the book you recommend.
