Sex and the Superbowl

Last year I reminded us all about a few things in regards to the wonderful world of sports. This year, I’d like to bring up another issue. As Tim Sewall pointed out at his blog, there is more than football going on down South. Sex trafficking is bigger than you might think. These two blogs make that known to us.

It affects us all

Many of us have most likely seen the movie Taken starring Liam Neeson. Many people hated it, I actually really loved it. If you are unfamiliar with this film, Neeson plays a divorced dad who goes to France to save his daughter who has been kidnapped and forced into the sex slave business. I didn’t love it so much because Liam Neeson kicks butt, I loved it because it brought to light something that actually happens everywhere. People tend to think that most prostitutes actually want to be in that profession. However, the truth is that most are forced into it. So how does this affect us all? Well, never mind the fact that there are countless children enslaved in this “business”, but as believers in Christ, we believe in liberty for the captive and the redemption of sexuality – which means we are against prostitution in every form.

If you watch the game, skip the commercials and pray for the slaves. If you don’t watch the game, remember those who are enslaved and shipped off for the pleasure and wealth of others.

    Thanks for the additional post on the topic. It’s really a hidden issue and a frustrating one. Also thanks for the encouragement to pray for them during commercials, its sad how we can decry the need for awareness but never actually pray for those being afflicted. Miss you bro!

      Amen man. It’s so true that we neglect that daily. Even in agreeing with you I’m realizing that I stand a chance at forgetting this tomorrow!

      miss you too bro. Come visit!
