Relevance of Sex Trafficking to Christianity

Sexual activity was created as a beautiful expression of God’s unity within Himself and within another human being as well as portraying God’s relationship to the Church.  Acts 15:29 calls humanity to abstain from sexual immorality.  Yet post-modern society has greatly devalued this bond God has bestowed upon humanity.  1 Corinthians 6:16 reiterates this philosophy by stating, “Do you not know that he who unites himself with a prostitute is one with her in body?

The Christian community is called to be the hands and feed of Jesus Christ in serving those who are less fortunate than themselves. 1 Thessalonians 4:9 prescribes steps on how Christians should emulate Christ‘s love, ― “Now about your love for one another we do not need to write to you, for you yourselves have been taught by God to love each other.” Therefore, we see it is the responsibility of the Church and Christian community to address the issue of sexual exploitation so that the world may glimpse Christ and His saving Grace. Our attitude in addressing this issue is with selfless love. Philippians 2:3-4, ―”Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves, not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of others.
