Human trafficking is one of the greatest problems facing society and the world today. The very fabric and soul of our humanity and values are at stake. After hundreds of years of slavery in the United Kingdom, slavery was abolished on August 28, 1833, and forty two years later on January 31, 1965, slavery was abolished in the United States. However, today millions of men, women, and children are being human trafficked across the planet. Many of the women and children have fallen into the sex slave trade. In this world of sex slavery, some of them are forced to endure sex with as many as 20 to 30 different men per day.

Addiction and Recovery
Addiction comes in many forms including drug, alcohol, sex, work, gambling, and more modern forms of pornography and gaming brought to us in the digital age. It is one of the many tools that our enemy uses to separate us from our relationship with God to deface and destroy God’s image that we were created to be. Unfortunately in many of our Christian churches, our brothers and sisters are made to retreat and hide their addictions embarrassed by the overwhelming shame and guilt they suffer. For the church to be healthy, our people must be healthy and freed from addiction. Freedom comes from love, help, support, and accountability, but most of all from God’s grace through us.

When the Church and its leaders do their job well, they are the best equipped to help lead and guide society forward. God did not call us to retreat from the public arena and let the enemy run society, but rather He calls us to take on the mantle He has given us, step into the conversation, and guide the country and its people towards righteousness.
