IF we look at all the Bible has to say about sexual immorality, we realize it fills the scriptures from Genesis to Revelations. Today, when America is so satiated with sex, and billions of dollars are being made by selling girls, boys and women for the gratification of sexual desires, turning back to the God of the universe and His Word is the most important thing we could do.
Think this through–a 14 year old girl is kidnapped, drugged, raped repeatedly, threatened, sometimes tortured (one case: hung by her hands in a dark closet for two days) so that a man can satisfy his passions for sex in a 15 minute to an hour or longer encounter (the longer the more money). And all that, so another man not only can satisfy his sexual craving but amasses thousands of dollars to live a life style he craves. Human trafficking is an estimated 3 billion dollar business in America. How many of our children and young women have to be sold and prostituted to earn that kind of money?
Another estimate is that 100,000 to 300,000 children are forced into the sex trade each year in America! In America! Is this what we want for our country?
Revelation 17:2 talks about God’s judgment. It describes Babylon the Great (which could be a city, a nation, a culture, a way of thinking that has taken over the earth) as a great whore (don’t get lost in thinking this is a woman—it is much larger than that). “And there came one of the seven angels…and talked with me, saying to me, Come here, I will show you the judgment of the great whore that sits upon many waters: With whom the kings of the earth have committed fornication (sexual immorality), and the inhabitants of the earth have been made drunk with the wine of her fornication (sexual immorality). Rev 18:2 goes farther, “Babylon the great…is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird, For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication…”
How long, Lord, will you allow the abomination of human slavery? How long, people, will we allow it?
