Paying for sex, bartering sex for payment, and human trafficking on a larger scale is beneath the human dignity that God created us for. In every culture, in every country, regardless of race, color, creed, and gender; reducing men, women and children to a means of making other people money, or paying debts, or payment for food or material goods, or even as means of payment for sex for human pleasure, is a misunderstanding of the full potential and dharma of every human being. There is a reason every person is born on this earth. It is not for other people’s financial gain, or the misuse of sex.
Each and every person has the God-given right to the privacy of their own body, and to live their own life, without threat, harm, manipulation, bribery, or any other means of usurping their own personal power.
Some cultures practice various forms of caste systems, in order to keep certain people down, while elevating others. However, this practice goes against the God-given human dignity of all people, in every country, in every situation and circumstance. We even see financial forms of caste systems in all countries. How does your country take care of its poor?
Sometimes people like to say one thing, but do another. In some shady practices, someone might say they want to go and get a massage. Therapeutic massage is extremely beneficial for healing stress, and for the recovery of sore muscles. But in less than reputable parlors, “happy endings,” those sexual favors that do come with a price, take place worldwide. What is the problem?
Human dignity that each and every human being is born with, which comes directly from God, and no other human being, cannot honorably be taken away by any other human being, without being in direct violation of the Creator himself. Some may attempt to justify their actions by erroneously thinking that it is a “win-win” for all involved, someone gets paid for a service, and someone gets that service. However, people are not things to be used, nor to be bought and sold. The conscience knows.
Please join me in praying for people caught in these less than human roles, that they might be helped and regain their dignity as God intended for them to have.
