Human Trafficking Panel
Our Powerhouse Panel Answered Some Crowd Questions:
What is next? Where can we get involved? We need everyone to ask God where they should be involved. When it comes to Jesus Said Love, we need people of all kinds. If you are breathing, you are qualified. Go to the low income areas where pimp culture rules and mentor boys. Research places and go help out at different organizations. There is the 6 degrees of separation, but I think there is really only 1 degree of separation from who God wants you to know.
What are tangible rules that men can take to stop sex trafficking? Stop watching porn and don’t promote the pimp culture. Men can re-evaluate on how they view women and sexuality. How has your mind been groomed? Men need to also learn one of the most important things is having unpleasant accountability conversations.
What are some common mistakes you see ministry making that we can correct? They come not knowing about the survivor. They aren’t learning what they have been through. They come not knowing how to embrace with love through the gospel. People don’t want to understand the background. Just because people know Jesus doesn’t mean their background is all water under the bridge. Every church should have counseling for sexual abuse, sexual addiction, pornography in WOMEN. Churches see this as just another cause or temporary issue that they can engage on. The church needs to own it’s responsibilities in how it dispenses love. The trafficking is happening all the time and we have a role to play. It is NOT just once a month or in January. In this move of God, what threatens the enemy more than anything is unity in the body. We need to put our egos aside for the sake of the gospel. We need unity.
We have to be praying for ourselves to understand, for victims, for business that may be complicit, for traffickers, law enforcement, a mighty hand of God to be compelling a response in our country for this issue.Ask God to reveal to you who the victims are. There are needles in haystacks. They don’t know that they’re victims. They are living the life they have been indoctrinated to.
