Writing for God, Fighting Human Trafficking

Periscope, Coffee, and Trafficking

While you were sipping your free coffee yesterday, a four-year-old girl was being offered for sell on Periscope. Streaming video of the girl brought quick bids.

The friend of mine who saw the “ad” took pictures of the video with another phone and contacted the police. I hope they find this man and arrest him. I pray that the little girl is safe. Women, when you take men into your home, you have to be wary today. Wary of the ungodliness that’s out there.

We’ve gone so far from God’s admonition to not have sex before marriage, to not look on a woman (or child or man) to lust after him or her that we can’t see the enormous toll it is taking on society, on our lives and our children’s lives.

So many children today have been raised with such abuse, such sexual assault, in America, that they think this is normal–that life is about abuse, about rape, about being unsafe, and about no one loving them.

Turning back to God means turning back to his admonitions and realizing they are for our are good–not to hurt us.

Today America is as addicted to sex as drug users are addicted to their drugs. It feels good. We like sex and want more of it–and it becomes more deviant all the time. Shooting up drugs feels good, too. At first.

When are we going to turn off the junk on TV? Stop going to R-rated movies? Stop streaming trash into our homes that defiles ourselves and our families?  In other words, it is time to say NO to the lust that satan is offering. Run the race.
