Issues: Sex

"But the LORD said to Samuel, "Do not consider his appearance or his height, for I have rejected him. The LORD does not look at the things man looks at. Man looks at the outward appearance, but the LORD looks at the heart."-1 Samuel 16:7

Today (Wednesday, April 2nd of 2008), I was meditating on God's word on "sexual immorality" and did a "word search". I found this verse, which I've read before; however, is what concludes-"in my opinion"-our sexually perverse culture...

"Therefore God gave them over in the sinful desires of their hearts to sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with one another."-Romans 1

Update: January 31st 2011-I feel we all can relate to this. Back in my college days, I was very into wanting "sex". I even had a poster of a "sexy babe" on my room of the residential hall (Gay Hall) I lived at and carried a condom in my wallet. I feel God protected me from the parties and college life as I became a Christian towards the end of my first year in college. However, it was even more of a battle as I still was tempted by my past life (e.g. went to a strip joint with h.s. friends when I went back to St. Paul to visit). What helped me was fasting (e.g. meditating in God's word-samples below):

"For out of the heart come evil thoughts-murder, adultery, sexual immorality, theft, false testimony, slander."-Matthew 15:19
"21 For it is from within, out of a person's heart, that evil thoughts come-sexual immorality, theft, murder,"-Mark 7
"Instead we should write to them, telling them to abstain from food polluted by idols, from sexual immorality, from the meat of strangled animals and from blood...You are to abstain from food sacrificed to idols, from blood, from the meat of strangled animals and from sexual immorality. You will do well to avoid these things. Farewell."-Acts 15
"Let us behave decently, as in the daytime, not in carousing and drunkenness, not in sexual immorality and debauchery, not in dissension and jealousy."-Romans 13

Sexual Immorality (1 Corinthians 6)

"12 "I have the right to do anything, " you say—but not everything is beneficial. "I have the right to do anything"=but I will not be mastered by anything. 13 You say, "Food for the stomach and the stomach for food, and God will destroy them both." The body, however, is not meant for sexual immorality but for the Lord, and the Lord for the body. 14 By his power God raised the Lord from the dead, and he will raise us also. 15 Do you not know that your bodies are members of Christ himself? Shall I then take the members of Christ and unite them with a prostitute? Never! 16 Do you not know that he who unites himself with a prostitute is one with her in body? For it is said, "The two will become one flesh."[b] 17 But whoever is united with the Lord is one with him in spirit.[c]

18 Flee from sexual immorality. All other sins a person commits are outside the body, but whoever sins sexually, sins against their own body. 19 Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; 20 you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your bodies."

...and making a covenant with God that I'll NOT have sex until after marriage ("It's a battle", but winning it with the Lord's help so far!). What has helped me with this over the years is different activities to feel-avoid temptation: "cutting-out" cable, "trying" to not-click on certain sites on the internet, avoid being alone with certain woman (e.g. married) in "tempted" situations, not adding to "sexual" jokes or conversations of my peers, etc.. Overall, I just need to keep my mind "pure" and "clean" which meditating in God's word daily as much as possible really helps! I just thought of this too, your actions (e.g. sinful) will-might affect others (e.g. you, others around you, etc..) in the long-run or worst-generations (e.g. think of your future kids) down. For example, I took that "sexy woman" poster in my dorm room after a friend told me it was very hypocritical of me as I just became a Christian (Spring of 96'). It wasn't a good way to shine for Jesus, which took me awhile to agree on this. This is an on-going testimony-story, which I'll try to keep you all updated.

AIDS has been a big topic lately (Decmember 5th), so I (Sal) thought this would be an appropriate time to do this website that I've been meaning to do for a long time.

I'm proud to say that I'm a virgin, which I'm not ashamed of. Many of my peers growing-up in high school (especially) would ridicule me that I was still a virgin. It was even before I came to Christ! I defintely wanted and still want to wait till I get married, like the article mentions below:

This is an example of what "we" need to becareful on what hear or see thru the media. The best source is our Heavenly Father's "love letter" (Bible):

(I selected this article since it questions some of the assumptions which are often made by the media regarding the behavior of teenagers. Abstinence is a real answer for thinking Godly families!)

HEADLINE: Editorial: Teens and sex/A poll produces startling results

Every parent has an opinion about teenagers and sex. But last spring the editors of Seventeen magazine and researchers at the Kaiser Family Foundation realized they didn't really know what teenagers think about the subject. They conducted a national survey of high school students and the results, published in Seventeen this month, contradict almost everything that adults thought they knew. Some 92 percent of the teenagers, including 89 percent of boys, said that being a virgin in high school is a good thing. Nearly 75 percent said their peers support them if they say no to sex. More than three-fourths said they want to remain virgins until they are 18 or older, including 24 percent who want to wait until they are married. Results like that should calm those who believe the nation is in a spiral of moral decline. But they should also alert parents to an important responsibility they could be neglecting. Skeptics might challenge the survey results, except that they are consistent with other, bigger studies of teenagers' actual behavior. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention say that the share of high school students who have had sex has fallen sharply in the last decade, from 54 percent in 1991 to 46 percent in 2001. Among teenagers who have sex, the use of condoms has risen sharply. Teen pregnancy rates fell by 25 percent during the 1990s and by 1999 had reached the lowest level in at least 20 years. But here's the blockbuster for grown-ups: Teenagers say they listen to their parents' advice and care about their parents' opinions. When asked to list the benefits of postponing sex, the No. 2 reason cited by teenagers was "respect from parents," right after "respect for yourself." Staying true to religious or moral values and keeping control of a romantic relationship also finished high on the list. "Parents think they've missed the boat by the time their children are 15 or 16," says Julia Davis, a senior program officer at Kaiser. "But three-fourths of the kids who are not sexually active say they learned something valuable from their parents." The irony is that, in many cases, it's not the kids who are letting their parents down, it may be parents who are letting their kids down. A separate Kaiser survey found a huge gap between the share of parents who say they've talked to their children about sex and the share of teenagers who say their parents have given them the information they need. "Parents feel that if they give their kids the one big talk, they've done their job," says Davis. "But teenagers want multiple conversations." Still feeling a bit squeamish? A Kaiser-sponsored Web site, , has tips to make the job a little easier.

"If you notice, the suggestion was made by a U.S Government personnel. The U.S government is known to exagerate certain events that occur in Africa for political reasons. Think about the HIV issue. Althoough the virus is known to be created by the U.S in an effort to get rid of the Black race, it attempts to persuade the American people that it is an epidemic rather than telling the American public the truth. Just think about this, Viruses are only created in labs, Chimps are only immune to Hiv, they do not produce it as claimed by many American scientist. Due to propaganda from the U.S government, the American people are fixed with the notion that the virus originated from Chimps, where are Chimps mostly found? Africa, something is wrong here. This article is just one of many propagandas used to dishonor the continent. Take a look at this
website Sal. Click on the Timeline link. African Americans have the highest rate of HIV inffection in America, African Americans don't eat, or house Chimps. The virus was tested on African Americans first before Africans. "

    Whatever the theoretical origin of HIV/AIDS, there is no doubt that the epidemic started a decade after scientists began "adapting" massive numbers of cancer-causing and immunosuppressive animal viruses and transferring them between various animal species in an attempt to experimentally produce cancer in the laboratory. In the process of these "species-jumping" experiments, the scientists mixed viruses together, seeded them into the bodies of various animal species, and planted them into animal and human cell cultures. In the process myriads of new, laboratory-created mutant, hybrid and recombinant viruses were created, some of which were exceedingly dangerous.

    New Testament: Expel the Immoral Brother!
    1It is actually reported that there is sexual immorality among you, and of a kind that does not occur even among pagans: A man has his father's wife. 2And you are proud! Shouldn't you rather have been filled with grief and have put out of your fellowship the man who did this? 3Even though I am not physically present, I am with you in spirit. And I have already passed judgment on the one who did this, just as if I were present. 4When you are assembled in the name of our Lord Jesus and I am with you in spirit, and the power of our Lord Jesus is present, 5hand this man over to Satan, so that the sinful nature[1] may be destroyed and his spirit saved on the day of the Lord.
    6Your boasting is not good. Don't you know that a little yeast works through the whole batch of dough? 7Get rid of the old yeast that you may be a new batch without yeast--as you really are. For Christ, our Passover lamb, has been sacrificed. 8Therefore let us keep the Festival, not with the old yeast, the yeast of malice and wickedness, but with bread without yeast, the bread of sincerity and truth. 9I have written you in my letter not to associate with sexually immoral people-- 10not at all meaning the people of this world who are immoral, or the greedy and swindlers, or idolaters. In that case you would have to leave this world. 11But now I am writing you that you must not associate with anyone who calls himself a brother but is sexually immoral or greedy, an idolater or a slanderer, a drunkard or a swindler. With such a man do not even eat. 12What business is it of mine to judge those outside the church? Are you not to judge those inside? 13God will judge those outside. "Expel the wicked man from among you."[2]

    Other's sin affects others (one you live with, yourself, and your children!) too! We really need to becareful of who you live or associate with. It's like the recent (7/28/04) Dutch Elm Disease in Morris (see reflection!


    Did you know "prostitute" is mentioned over 70x in the Bible? (see Bible Did you know that Mary Magdalene was a prostitute?

    ".. Luk 7:37-39 And, behold, a woman in the city, which was a SINNER, when she knew that Jesus sat at meat in the Pharisee's house, brought an alabaster box of ointment, And stood at his feet behind him weeping, and began to wash his feet with tears, and did wipe them with the hairs of her head, and kissed his feet, and anointed [them] with the ointment. Now when the Pharisee which had bidden him saw it, he spake within himself, saying, This man, if he were a prophet, would have known who and what manner of woman this is that toucheth him: for she is a sinner.
    Why did these evil religious leaders, not want Jesus to even touch her, because they in their self righteousness though she had touched others sexually and was impure.For what do they consider the worst sin of all, even today ? Yes.. SEX. So was she a prostitute known by them and others ? But wait a minute, you might be saying, no where does it say that this women who washed Jesus feet with her tears and dried them with her hair was Mary Magdalene. Well, Yes it does infer that because as Jesus said, she was foreshadowing his death with her annointing of his feet. Mark 14:8 She hath done what she could: she is come aforehand to anoint my body to the burying. And who was there at the Cross, and who was going to the tomb to annoint the Lord's body, only to find that her master and Lord had arisen.... Mary Magdalene. Mark 16: 1 And when the sabbath was past, Mary Magdalene, and Mary the mother of James, and Salome, had bought sweet spices, that they might come and anoint him."

  • "This is something I don't like to admit, and normally I cringe at the mention of it, but in order to put the past completely behind me I must tell my story. I used to work as a solo adult webcam entertainer. This means that I was paid (per minute) to have sexual conversations and relations with people over the internet with them watching me via my webcam. I did this for about 2 years and then quit for many reasons; the most important reason being because I wanted to do something that my daughter could be proud of me for, the people were very often rude, and the money wasn't good enough for the work I was doing. ..
    A normal night would consist of me spending about an hour on my hair, makeup and wardrobe, queuing a few good cds for ambiance, and turning on my webcam to open my chat room for business. The host (me) would wait in their chat room for clients to enter and talk. This is where you can either persuade someone to spend their hard-earned money on you, or not. I'd have to flirt and make idle chat about their day and what they do for work...normally allowing them to direct the conversation. Being too pushy isn't beneficial unless that's the kind of room you are in. I list any limits that I have (things I will not do) and ask if there's anything the client is looking for specifically. I also had a picture and video gallery. The picture gallery was free to anyone who was purchasing time with the website so they could see more of the models. And the video gallery was a good way to make money when I wasn't online; clients would pay a viewing charge per video to watch any of the series of videos I made. .."

As she prepared to release Sharecropper's Seed, she and Jasmine visited Ghana and met with many of the young women who have been rescued from a life of sex slavery and are now learning vocational skills. For Nicole, the trip was a perfect example of God's goodness brought full circle.

    Rape Stories

    I met a young lady (Monday, April 21st of 2008) who opened up to me about being rape at a very young age (15 years old only). The sad thing is that it happened during school, which she was forced by some young man in the hallways. Anyways, it was difficult for her to share the rest of the story as she told me she couldn't remember. Very traumatizing for her, so I decided that I'll e-mail her back some encouraging "healing" stories...

You did not deserve what happened to you. We all have the right to safety and respect; in retrospect, it is easy to criticize ourselves for the course of action we took, but the truth is that the fault always lies in the hands of the assailant or abuser...

    2 Samuel 13 Amnon and Tamar

    "..“Send everyone out of here,” Amnon said. So everyone left him. 10 Then Amnon said to Tamar, “Bring the food here into my bedroom so I may eat from your hand.” And Tamar took the bread she had prepared and brought it to her brother Amnon in his bedroom. 11 But when she took it to him to eat, he grabbed her and said, “Come to bed with me, my sister.”
    12 “No, my brother!” she said to him. “Don’t force me! Such a thing should not be done in Israel! Don’t do this wicked thing. 13 What about me? Where could I get rid of my disgrace? And what about you? You would be like one of the wicked fools in Israel. Please speak to the king; he will not keep me from being married to you.” 14 But he refused to listen to her, and since he was stronger than she, he raped her.
    15 Then Amnon hated her with intense hatred. In fact, he hated her more than he had loved her. Amnon said to her, “Get up and get out!”
    16 “No!” she said to him. “Sending me away would be a greater wrong than what you have already done to me.”
    But he refused to listen to her. 17 He called his personal servant and said, “Get this woman out of my sight and bolt the door after her.” 18 So his servant put her out and bolted the door after her. She was wearing an ornate[a] robe, for this was the kind of garment the virgin daughters of the king wore. 19 Tamar put ashes on her head and tore the ornate robe she was wearing. She put her hands on her head and went away, weeping aloud as she went.
    20 Her brother Absalom said to her, “Has that Amnon, your brother, been with you? Be quiet for now, my sister; he is your brother. Don’t take this thing to heart.” And Tamar lived in her brother Absalom’s house, a desolate woman.
    21 When King David heard all this, he was furious. 22 And Absalom never said a word to Amnon, either good or bad; he hated Amnon because he had disgraced his sister Tamar. ..

    St. Paul Police net dozens in undercover prostitution bust, Posted at: 07/25/2008 05:01:52 PM By: Nicole Muehlhausen, Web Producer
    "The St. Paul Police conducted an undercover prostitution enforcement detail, which netted 35 violators this week.
    Police said they received numerous complaints from residents, business owners and neighborhood groups, of prostitution occurring in parts of the city.
    The bust was conducted on Tuesday and Wednesday and focused on prostitution advertised through the Internet and in print publications.
    The 33 male violators range in age from 22 to 49 years of age. They were all charged with soliciting prostitution and booked at the Ramsey County Law Enforcement Center.
    Two females were also arrested, but have been referred to the Breaking Free program. Breaking Free is a non-profit organization that helps women involved in prostitution and sex trafficking. "


  • Duluth Church Starts Initiative To End Sex Trafficking September 20, 2011 11:03 PM

  • "DULUTH, Minn. (WCCO) — A new community effort is underway to end sex trafficking along the north shore in Duluth.
    We first told you in May how women and girls from the north shore were being sold for sex. Now there is a new push to get those victims the services they need to stop.
    Hillside Church in Duluth’s downtown district served as a training ground for how to fight back against sex trafficking.
    Ryan Bauers is lead pastor at Hillside Church. He said the first step for many of the women is acknowledging that the problem exists in the community.
    "The truth is sometimes really, really uncomfortable. That’s what you find when you listen to these women and girls. This is reality,” Bauers said.
    There have been 18 more arrests by the Lake Superior Trafficking Task Force this summer. Officers posed online as prostitutes and Johns on Craigslist and Backpage looking for clients.
    Scott Drewlo is an administrative affairs commander with the Duluth Police Department. He said the undercover decoys are always very successful.
    "Every time we do something in prostitution-related demand, it’s so high it's like fishing with dynamite. You’re guaranteed an arrest,” Drewlo said.
    For years, girls along the north shore have been lured from schools, malls and reservations into the trade.
    While there is counseling and support services available for victims of sex trafficking in Duluth, advocates said there is a real need for shelter.
    "There needs to be a safe place for women to go to transition out of the life," Drewlo said.
    Breaking Free, a non-profit in St. Paul that helps women break the cycle, led the training with the hope to start a similar program in Duluth. From the faith community to law enforcement, it is a movement gaining ground to show girls there is a way out.
    "How can you not do something about an issue like this?” Ryan Bauers said.
    There will be a fundraiser at Zeitgeist Arts Café in Duluth on Dec. 2 to help women and girls transition out of trafficking."

  • HIV Cases Increase to 17-year High in Minn., from Updated at: 01/26/2010 12:49 PM |

  • "ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) - The Minnesota Department of Health says the number of new HIV cases rose 13 percent in 2009, climbing to a 17-year high.
    The department's preliminary report says there were 368 HIV cases reported last year, compared with 326 cases in 2008.
    HIV is an infection that causes acquired immunodeficiency syndrome, or AIDS.
    The manager of the heath department's HIV/AIDS section, Peter Carr, says the increase is primarily among males 15 to 24 years old.
    Carr tells The Associated Press that while there's no concrete reason for the increase, it may due, in part, to complacency about the disease, particularly among young, gay men.
    He says there's also a general lack of awareness that HIV is still an important issue in Minnesota.
    The department has recorded 9,176 HIV/AIDS cases since it began tracking AIDS in 1982 and HIV in 1985.

  • Recovery from Sexual Addiction, from open-mind
  • Fired evangelist asks for forgiveness By COLLEEN SLEVIN, Associated Press Writer 4 minutes ago (yahoo news)

  • "COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. - Members of the New Life Church were stunned and brought to tears by the Rev. Ted Haggard's confessions of "sexual immorality," then accepted his plea for forgiveness with open arms.
    Haggard, who had been a leading evangelist and vocal opponent of gay marriage, apologized Sunday in a letter read from the pulpit of the 14,000-member church he founded.
    Some in the standing-room-only crowd wiped away tears and embraced each other as they heard Haggard's words read by a member of the board that fired him a day earlier.
    "The fact is I am guilty of sexual immorality. And I take responsibility for the entire problem," Haggard wrote. "I am a deceiver and a liar. There's a part of my life that is so repulsive and dark that I have been warring against it for all of my adult life."
    After services, Patty Erwin kneeled near the back of the 8,000-seat auditorium and said a prayer for Haggard.
    "We all love him because he's a part of our family. You don't just throw away a sister or a brother," said Erwin, who's been coming to the church for 15 years. "Desperately, we love him, and we wouldn't be here if we didn't."
    Haggard, 50, resigned last week as president of the National Association of Evangelicals, which represents 30 million evangelical Christians, after a man claimed to have had drug-fueled trysts with him.
    He also placed himself on administrative leave from New Life, which he founded in the 1980s. Its independent Overseer Board fired him Saturday.
    In his letter, Haggard said "the accusations that have been leveled against me are not all true, but enough of them are true that I have been appropriately and lovingly removed from the ministry."
    He did not specify which accusations were true. Haggard had acknowledged Friday that he paid Mike Jones of Denver for a massage and for methamphetamine, but said he did not have sex with him and did not take the drug.
    The letter was read to the church by the Rev. Larry Stockstill, senior pastor of Bethany World Prayer Center in Baker, La., and a member of the board that fired him. Haggard asked for forgiveness for himself and for his accuser.
    In a separate letter, Haggard's wife drew laughter when she promised to remain with her husband and said church members no longer had to worry about her marriage being so perfect she couldn't relate to them.
    Neither Haggard nor his wife, Gayle, attended.
    Youngsters were sent from the room before elders began discussing the church crisis.
    "Worshippers are always challenged by crisis. And when tragedy and crisis strikes it is at that moment that you truly decide if you are a worshipper of the most high God. And today as the worship pastor of this church I am very proud of you," said the Rev. Ross Parsley, who has replaced Haggard.
    Ryan Price and his fiancee, Karen Geyer, were impressed. "It seemed genuine � from the heart. It's unfortunate but it happens," said Geyer.
    "He's reaching out and asking for forgiveness," said Price.
    Jones, who said he is gay, said he came forward because he was upset when he discovered who Haggard was and that New Life opposed same-sex marriage � a key issue in Colorado, with a pair of issues on Tuesday's ballot.
    "I wish him well. I wish his family well," Jones said Sunday. "My intent was never to destroy his family. My intent was to expose a hypocrite."
    The scandal has disappointed Christian conservatives, whom President Bush and other Republicans are courting heavily in the run-up to Tuesday's election.
    Many were already disheartened with the president and the Republican-controlled Congress over their failure to deliver big gains on social issues even before the congressional page scandal involving former Rep. Mark Foley (news, bio, voting record).
    Haggard, who had been NAE president since 2003, has participated in conference calls with White House staffers and lobbied Congress last year on Supreme Court nominees.

  • Masturbation And The Bible by Lambert Dolphin from

  • "...To reduce sexual cravings, Graham advised mild foods to decrease sexual appetites. The graham cracker was the result! In 1884, this curious connection between food and sex appeared in another guise. Dr. John Harvey Kellogg created cornflakes to curtail children's inclinations toward masturbation. Kellogg, who was quite a health eccentric, wrote:
    "The use of the reproductive function is perhaps the highest physical act of which man is capable; its abuse is certainly one of the most grievous outrages against nature which it is possible for him to perpetrate."
    See Porn Flakes: Kellogg, Graham and the Crusade for Moral Fiber. (Disclaimer: I do NOT agree with Dr. Kellogg and his school of thought. This link is for information purposes only.)
    ...Sharing the secrets of one's defeats in masturbation with a trusted Christian brother, mentor, or accountability group usually brings a real sense of relief and helps the person to be more objective about himself and his place in the world. All of us are sinners and we are only sinners who have been justified by God and made---by grace---worthy members of the kingdom of God. False guilt and self-condemnation (especially in "shame-based" individuals) surely is more serious source of defeat for some people than their true moral guilt before God who is gracious and full of mercy. "As a Father pities his children, so the Lord pities those who fear him. For he knows our frame; he remembers that we are dust." (Ps. 103:13, 14)
    Although the Old Testament records the sexual failures of a number of men and women there are non-sexual sins that are more serious in the eyes of God, though they usually get less attention than sexual failures (see for example Proverbs 6:16-19). For instance, Jesus was merciful and compassionate towards a woman caught in the act of adultery, but he was scathing in his devastating rebukes of the arrogant self-righteousness of the Pharisees....


  • Striving for purity in a hyper-sexual culture by Kara Bettis — WNS Published, November 2011

  • "VENTURA, Calif. — Arching over a driving beat and an addictive melody, Cobra Starship croons these seductive lines: “Get a little closer to me, girl, and you’ll understand; ‘cause if you want a guy that knows what you need, well then I’m your man” In a high-pitched siren’s call, the girl responds: “Tell me what you want so we can do just what you like.”
    No one listening to one of today’s most popular dance hits has to wonder what the singers are talking about. According to a report in The Atlantic Wire, 92 percent of top ten billboard songs contain strong sexual themes. Young adults are surrounded by sexual influences, and Christians are not immune.
    According to the findings of a research study recently released by the Barna Group, some young people are leaving the church because their church experiences related to sexuality are too simplistic.
    The study found that young adults question how to live in purity while immersed in a culture that values hyper-sexuality over wholeness. When they turn to the church for answers, they are faced with a list of forbidden activities with little explanation about how to keep from doing them.
    Students and youth pastors say if the church is going to reach young adults, it must focus on the internal instead of the external.
    Seventeen percent of young Christians who responded to the Barna Group survey said they made mistakes involving sex and felt judged in the church as a result.
    Fallon Prinzivalli, a senior at The King’s College, agreed with the survey results and said girls often had the most trouble.
    "I think teens feel ostracized by the church community, especially girls,” Prinzivalli said. “The church teaches that guys struggle with porn and sex, and girls struggle with insecurity, but it’s the other way round as well.”
    Instead of finding support during their struggles, girls often face gossip and shame, Prinzivalli said.
    Kyle Lincoln, a junior youth ministry major at Gordon College, believes that the issue is too complex for the church to solve.
    "I think that there is so much difficulty talking among your peers, and in the church there’s even more pressure because there’s the expectation that you’re going to do the right thing,” he said.
    The problem is that churches focus on morality instead of true spirituality, Steve Wright, a youth pastor in Attleboro, Mass., said. An absence of solid teaching on sexual issues exacerbates the struggle young adults have in a secular culture. The battle over sexual temptation must be fought in a spiritual way, not a moral way, Wright said.
    Wright believes solid spiritual teaching for teens is rare in the church, possibly because churches assume the youth can’t understand it. Or worse, church leaders have lost touch with Biblical truths about sexuality, he said.
    Wright urges churches to engage young people in a Christ-centered culture of community, along with close friends or family.
    "I mean, how can anyone hope to do really well solo amidst a culture where everyone is 'doing it,' if you will," Wright said. "You need to make your own culture in God’s kingdom."

  • Christian group reaches out to victims of the U.S. sex trade Posted: 24 November, 2008 (Mission Network News)
    "USA (MNN) ― According to the United States Immigration officials, 600,000 people are sold into human trafficking around the world. Many of them are under-aged girls, who are sold into sex slavery. It's happening in major cities all over the world, including the United States.
    Food for the Hungry (FH) is getting involved, says the senior city initiatives director with FH, Pat McCalla. McCalla says their involvement in this came after he met with Phoenix city officials to find out some of the pressing needs in their own city. "I was actually horrified to learn that one of the issues was child prostitution, or what I call rape for profit -- the sexual exploitation of under-aged victims. And I found out that the average age of a child prostitute in our city was 13 years old."
    That's when leaders from all over the community met together to begin planning to eradicate this heinous crime. Part of that was creating a documentary called, Branded. "The purpose is to educate, motivate people to begin to speak out about this heinous crime and then hopefully advocate to change legislation. The end goal is to build a safe house that can work with these girls to restore them."
    McCalla describes the problem in Phoenix. "Four to five years ago, when they would arrest a pimp, most of those girls were over 18. Today, when they arrest a pimp, generally most of those girls are under age."
    He says the girls involved don't fit any one specific demographic. He says they range from lower class to upper class and many nationalities in Phoenix. Most of the girls live in the U.S. "A lot of times, they cross state lines. We find a lot of girls from California, Nevada and Texas."
    McCalla says the safe house they're proposing will be faith-based. "What we mean by that is 'Christ centered,' that any girl that comes into this program would come in and hear the name Jesus throughout the day, and they would hear talk about that. So we've made it clear, even with government official, that it will be a Christ-centered home."
    FH hopes that through this program, these girls will come to know Christ in a personal way.
    The local church is the head of the spear on the project, and it's not going to be cheap. "The building of the safe home is probably going to be around 10-million dollars and then nearly a two-million dollar budget a year to run it. We're actually looking at a thre- tear attack. It's like a three-legged stool. If you take one leg out, it would fall over. And we're saying advocacy, prevention and rehabilitation."
    McCalla hopes to begin breaking ground on the group home in 18 months.
    While Food for the Hungry wants to see the safe home built in Phoenix, McCalla says other communities are already interested in starting a program.
    While funding is needed for the project, McCalla is asking people to pray. "Tonight, in most of our major cities, there will be 12-, 13- or 14-year-old girls that will be raped repeatedly, and it will happen to them night after night after night. So we need to pray that churches will fight against this injustice."

    "What does the Bible say about sex?"


  • Wise Choices for Youth
  • Dating according to the Bible

    "What does the Bible have to say about love, dating, and marriage? -The Bible informs us to keep a set of standards and boundaries. Proverbs 25:26 A good person who gives in to someone who is evil reminds you of a polluted spring or a poisoned well. 2 Timothy 2:22 Run from anything that stimulates youthful lust. Follow anything that makes you want to do right. Pursue faith and love and peace, and enjoy the companionship of those who call on the Lord with pure hearts. 1 Thessalonians 4:2-3 You know the instructions we gave you by the authority of the Lord Jesus. God wants you to be holy and completely free from sexual immorality. 1 Thessalonians 4:4-8 Then each of you will control your body and live in holiness and honor - not in lustful passion as the pagans do, in their ignorance of God and his ways. Never cheat a Christian brother in this matter by taking his wife, for the Lord avenges all such sins, as we have solemnly warned you before. God has called us to be holy, not to live impure lives. Anyone who refuses to live by these rules is not disobeying human rules but is rejecting God, who gives his Holy Spirit to you.

    -The Bible informs us that we are to stay pure until marriage. Hebrews 13 Give honor to marriage, and remain faithful to one another in marriage. God will surely judge people who are immoral and those who commit adultery. -We ought to be committed to one another Hebrews 13:4 Give honor to marriage, and remain faithful to one another in marriage. God will surely judge people who are immoral and those who commit adultery. 1 Corinthians 7:2 But since there is so much immorality, each man should have his own wife, and each woman her own husband."

    "“Nowadays, being 24 years old and a dual member of the Never Been Kissed/No Boyfriend Since Birth Club is no piece of cake.
    Our members are few and dwindling as time goes by. The pressure punches even harder working in the media where everything around me screams, ‘Go for it!’ Therein lies the glamorous life of no consequences, pleasures galore, and if-it-feels-good-do-it romance.
    But no, I stand strong on the principle that true love really DOES wait, and that the best romance is authored by the One who created love in the first place.
    I dream He’s got this penned in my novel: The day I dance down the aisle, my future husband hears the words, ‘You may now kiss the bride.’ He looks me in the eye and smiles, knowing that he’s the first and only to do so.
    (Sigh)… now what can be more romantic?”"

  • US apologizes for infecting Guatemalans with STDs in the 1940s By the CNN Wire Staff October 1, 2010 10:18 p.m. EDT

  • "Washington (CNN) -- The United States apologized Friday for a 1946-1948 research study in which people in Guatemala were intentionally infected with sexually transmitted diseases.
    A statement by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Secretary of Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius called the action "reprehensible."
    "We deeply regret that it happened, and we apologize to all the individuals who were affected by such abhorrent research practices," the joint statement said. "The conduct exhibited during the study does not represent the values of the United States, or our commitment to human dignity and great respect for the people of Guatemala."
    President Barack Obama called his Guatemalan counterpart Friday "offering profound apologies and asking pardon for the deeds of the 1940s," President Alvaro Colom told CNN en Espanol in a telephone interview from Guatemala City.
    "Though it happened 64 years ago, it really is a profound violation of human rights," said Colom, who said the report took him by surprise.
    Clinton called him on Thursday, he said. "She too offered her apologies," he said, adding that she told him she was ashamed the United States had been involved in the matter.
    Asked whether Guatemala was planning to take legal action, Colom said, "That's part of the work of the commission."
    "We reject these types of actions, obviously," said Guatemala presidential spokesman Ronaldo Robles. "We know that this took place some time ago, but this is unacceptable and we recognize the apology from Secretary Clinton."
    The scientific investigation, called the U.S. Public Health Service Sexually Transmitted Disease Inoculation Study of 1946-1948, aimed at determining the effectiveness of penicillin in treating or preventing syphilis after subjects were exposed to the disease. Gonorrhea and chancres were also studied. Penicillin was a relatively new drug at the time.
    The tests were carried out on female commercial sex workers, prisoners in the national penitentiary, patients in the national mental hospital and soldiers. According to the study, more than 1,600 people were infected: 696 with syphilis, 772 with gonorrhea and 142 with chancres.
    The study came to light recently when Wellesley College researcher Susan Reverby found the archived but unpublished notes from the project as she was researching a similar study that was conducted between 1932 and 1972 in Tuskegee, Alabama. That study included nearly 400 poor African-American men with preexisting syphilis whose disease was allowed to progress without treatment. Researchers did not infect the subjects, but they did not tell them they had the disease either.
    The Tuskegee study was done under the direction of Dr. John C. Cutler, a U.S. Public Health Service medical officer who died in 2003.
    "I was doing what historians do," said Reverby, a professor of the history of ideas and women and gender issues, who has written a book on the Tuskegee study. She went to the University of Pittsburgh, where Cutler had taught, and searched through an archive of his papers.
    "There was nothing on Tuskeegee in the papers, but there was this report of the Guatemala study," she told CNN in a telephone interview. "I started to read, and I almost fell off my chair."
    She found that Cutler also led the research in Guatemala. It was carried out there, in part, she said, because prostitution was legal and prisoners were allowed to bring prostitutes in for sex.
    Dr. Francis Collins, director of the U.S. National Institutes for Health, told reporters that the Guatemala study represented "a dark chapter in the history of medicine."
    The study "appears to have been funded" by the U.S. National Institutes of Health, he said, citing four primary ethical violations: 1) study subjects "were members of one or more vulnerable populations;" 2) there is no evidence they gave informed consent; 3) they were often deceived about what was being done to them; 4) they were intentionally infected with pathogens that could cause serious illness without their understanding or consent.
    U.S. officials said Friday that ethical safeguards would prevent such abuses from occurring today.
    An Institute of Medicine task force will look at what happened in the study, and a group of ethics experts will convene to review the matter and report on how best to ensure such abuses do not recur, Collins said.
    "The study is a sad reminder that adequate human subject safeguards did not exist a half-century ago," the U.S. statement said. "Today, the regulations that govern U.S.-funded human medical research prohibit these kinds of appalling violations."
    Collins said the published literature contains more than 40 other U.S.-based studies "where intentional infection was carried out with what we could now consider to be completely inadequate consent in the United States."
    Many of those studies were funded by the Public Health Service, he said.
    But at least some people believed at the time that the experiment was flawed, according to Wellesley's Reverby, who cited this reaction to Cutler's work from his supervisor, PHS physician R.C. Arnold: "I am a bit, in fact more than a bit, leery of the experiment with insane people," Arnold said. "They can not give consent, do not know what is going on, and if some good organization got wind of the work, they would raise a lot of smoke. I think the soldiers would be best or the prisoners for they can give consent. Maybe I'm too conservative ... In the report, I see no reason to say where the work was done and the type of volunteer."
    "The vast majority" of study subjects were adequately treated for their illness, Collins said. One subject died during an epileptic seizure, though it was not clear that the death was related to the study, he added.
    Cutler's work helped refine testing procedures and suggested a better means of prevention, but "made little impact on syphilis research," Reverby concluded.
    Clinton and Sebelius said the United States is launching an investigation and also convening a group of international experts to review and report on the most effective methods to make sure all human medical research worldwide meets rigorous ethical standards.
    "As we move forward to better understand this appalling event, we reaffirm the importance of our relationship with Guatemala, and our respect for the Guatemalan people, as well as our commitment to the highest standards of ethics in medical research," the U.S. statement said.
    CNN's Arthur Brice, Nick Valencia and Tom Watkins and CNNRadio's Shelby Lin Erdman contributed to this report."

    Human Sex Slaves/Human Trafficking


  • Undercover filmmaker: Trafficker priced me up By Mimi Chakarova, Special to CNN Editor's Note: WATCH CONNECT THE WORLD, 9PM GMT, FRIDAY 23 MARCH.

  • "For the past decade, photographer-filmmaker Mimi Chakarova has examined conflict, corruption and the sex trade. Her film "The Price of Sex," a feature-length documentary made over seven years on trafficking and corruption, premiered in 2011. She was awarded the Nestor Almendros Award for courage in filmmaking at the Human Rights Watch Film Festival in New York. It has its UK premiere March 23-25 at the Human Rights Watch Film Festival in London.
    She was wearing a polka dot skirt and her favorite pink flip-flops the day she left her village in Albania. Her mom called out her name before she got into her boyfriend's red Mitsubishi. She didn't turn to wave goodbye. She was 12 and angry.
    Her stepdad has been raping her for as long as she can remember. She couldn't tell her mom. She knows she'd be sent away. She'd be the one blamed. Girls tempt grown men and bring it on themselves, they'd say. And there was also his drinking that made him do it, they'd add.
    Once they were in Italy, her boyfriend changed - he told her she'll work for him as a prostitute. She thought he was playing some silly joke. She left home to be with him; to one day marry him. He is older. She's in love.
    He slapped her back to reality. Told her how much money she cost him for the speedboat ride, her fake documents, the clothes and make-up he bought to make her look pretty and pass for 18.
    She cried. And he cut her knee deep with a knife to make her stop. For the next seven years, the scar is a reminder she has no one but him to fear and return to.
    Years later, I recorded her story at a secret shelter for women and saw court documents backing up what she told me. She pressed charges against her pimp but she says his uncle was a judge and released him on bail. The pimp left Albania until things cooled off. He is still free and has even bought a three-story house in her village in northern Albania.
    Meanwhile, her family found out she was a "hooker who didn't even bring back any money, only an abortion and STDs." They disowned her. Her mom still doesn't know her husband was the first to abuse her.
    That was the story of a young Albanian girl I met while filming "The Price of Sex" - sold into sex work in Italy and Belgium by a man who pretended to be her boyfriend.
    The first woman I photographed had been trafficked to Turkey. She returned to Moldova, one of the poorest countries in Eastern Europe, wearing the same pants, blouse and shoes she left in.
    Relying on her contacts in the town where she was sold, I retraced her journey to Turkey and met with one of her pimps - a man notorious for the sadistic abuse of the girls he owned.
    Unable to take photographs, I posed as a Bulgarian woman for sale and spoke with Tania, a girl from Ukraine who was trafficked at the age of 23 and purchased as a slave by Yusuf.
    I push my camera bag under the white plastic table, slouching down to appear more relaxed. The sun set four hours ago and the outdoor cafe where I'm sitting faces the fishing boats docked by the bay.
    Only now the fear slowly seeps in as I notice a middle-aged man with an off-white cotton shirt and beige trousers approach the table.
    The young woman by his side looks straight ahead. Her clothes are a few sizes too small by intent. They sit down at opposite ends of one another. I introduce myself in Russian.
    The pimp doesn't understand but he doesn't need to. He is here to price me. He adjusts his gold-rimmed glasses, lights a cigarette and puts his cell phone on the table.
    The young woman, Tatiana, also known as Tania, is average – small, tired and looking much older than 25.
    We start talking. I'm nervous: "I am coming from Istanbul. For work."
    "So you know what this is about?" she asks slowly as if speaking in code and then takes another drag on her cigarette.
    "Let's talk then," she smiles at Yusuf who is staring at my breasts without trying to be discreet. "You'll live with him. There is plenty of work," she pauses to adjust the thick strap of her orange tank top. "Sometimes 30 a day."
    She tells me the clients are handsome, she denies Yusuf hits her – though in both cases I know the truth.
    "Look, Yusuf likes you," she says. "You can start tomorrow."
    My hand is shaking as I try to write down the digits of Tania's cell phone number.
    "It's your first time, huh?" Tania smiles. "I was the same, hadn't done this before. But after a couple of days, you'll forget everything," she pauses and pulls out another cigarette.
    "Home, friends, memories... " she looks down and inhales the smoke. "Nothing will matter."
    Tania stares into the distance where boat lights flicker. Her next client is waiting in one of these boats. "Think about it," she stands up. "We'll be back in a bit."
    She walks away with Yusuf close by her side like a father or an older uncle.
    Working to expose this misery makes you want to never leave your house again. But you can't hide. You've promised too many people to carry on. You've connected the dots for a decade. You can break it down into the most basic elements: supply and demand.
    The supply is steady - poor women and kids need a way out. They leave in search of jobs. They are duped, sold, used up and deported back to where they came from. Penniless, ashamed, scared.
    And the demand? It's something few are willing to tackle. It's not only fishermen, construction workers and soldiers who frequent the brothels of Turkey, Russia, Kosovo, the United Arab Emirates, the U.K., Israel, Greece, Italy and many other countries where women are trafficked to. You also have cops, politicians, policy makers, U.N. personnel. Men who'd rather remain anonymous.
    And after all, this human trafficking phenomenon isn't a new criminal trend. It's existed since the beginning of documented time. But what is astonishing to me is how recently we agreed to agree that sex slavery should be punished by law.
    Think about it. The United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime defined the Palermo Protocol in 2000 and implemented it in 2003. That's only nine years ago! And The Victims of Trafficking and Violence Protection Act was passed by the U.S. Department of State in 2000.
    Awareness matters. People must know. We must change perceptions.
    But let's not fool ourselves. As long as the huge discrepancy between poor and rich countries continues to exist, as long as access to justice is denied or corrupt, as long as stigma keeps women silent, and law enforcement agents take bribes or use the trafficked women as bargaining chips, we can make films, go to schools, speak until our voices grow weak and still only make a pitiful dent.
    The first question we must answer is "Why is human trafficking only second to drugs in profitability?"
    Then think of Henry Ford's words: "Show me who profits from war and I will show you how to stop the war."
    Apply this to trafficking. If we, as an international community, agreed that the trafficking and selling of human beings is unacceptable and we've had nine years to reduce the numbers, then what else is standing in the way? Do the lives of poor women matter?
    I am posing these questions because unless we honestly answer them, all of my work and the persistent effort and dedication of others in the field won't be enough in this lifetime.
    And I don't think it is fair for the next generation should inherit one of the worst human rights abuses known to mankind. The time is now.
    The opinions expressed in this commentary are solely those of Mimi Chakarova."

    Poverty forces girls into sex slavery Friday, 24th October, 2008 (
    "GIRLS as young as 14 are lured from villages with promises of jobs, only to end up as sex slaves in Kampala, writes Stephen Ssenkaba.
    SHE was shy and could not look me straight in the eye. But as I talked to her, I noticed an air of apprehension about her. “I really want to go back to school but I can’t. My parents are poor and they cannot pay for my school fees.”
    Nina (not real name) is only 16 years old. Last year she dropped out of school. She was in Senior Two. She stayed at home with her parents until recently when ‘Mama Barbara’ visited her family and offered to find a job for her.
    Her parents were quick to accept and after brief negotiations, Nina was handed over to Mama Barbara, who had found her a job as a housemaid.
