Every Action Leads

On the third day of my trip in Greece, we had a five hour car ride to Sofia, Bulgaria. Our team was given a movie about trafficking to watch on the way that followed four common way girls are tricked or kidnapped.

It was nothing compared to what actually happens to women but it was disturbing enough that it broke each one of our hearts in a new way. It gave us a glimpse into how this crime operates and we realized what a perverted way the Devil is using sex to destroy millions of people.

What is commonly overlooked is the slow fade from "probably wrong" to pure evil. America is perfectly oblivious that R rated movies can easily lead to porn, porn leads to strip clubs which then gets boring and leads to prostitution. Then sadly, we don't realize that a brainwashed girl that has "chosen" to be a prostitute is a slave herself...

Please be mindful that choosing a life of purity may not be cool. Believe me I am often called too sensitive or a goody goody, but every action leads to the next action.

Rescuing one girl at a time from a strip club, motel room or brothel isn't enough if we blindly keep feeding the monster that is making this poison easy to swallow.

While in Greece we kept hearing that the key to freeing the women is changing the mindset of a culture that is comfortable with a perverted version of intimacy. It sounded a lot like home to me which fuels me even more to be opposite of what is acceptable. I would rather live by this:

Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable--if anything is excellent or praiseworthy--think about such things. Philippians 4:8

Please join me in walking upstream. All the of the water is rushing one direction, but I have seen first hand where that water is leading to. It takes each one of us choosing to turn around and helping others to see that what they consider a harmless choice is engaging in an industry that brings destruction.
