The International Labor Organization estimates that there are at least 12 million men, women, and children worldwide toiling in some form of slavery; some experts believe as many as 27 million may be living as slaves. Of that multitude, almost 1.4 million are repeatedly sold and raped in a violent and dehumanizing global sex industry. According to the United Nations, 2 million children alone are prostituted in the global sex trade; at least 100,000 children in the United States are victims of commercial sexual exploitation every year.
The reality represented by those statistics begs a number of questions: how should servants of Jesus Christ respond to such brutal injustice? How should we live in such an exploitative world? How can we make a difference?
The answers are found in the Bible, the central theme of which is God’s entry into a dark and oppressed world to rescue and redeem a people in bondage. In this six-week journey, you will investigate the injustices of sex trafficking, pornography, and other forms of sexual exploitation, and, through prayer, study, and discussion, apply God’s Word to cultivate a lifestyle of justice.
