We have been having a tough conversation over the past few days with Susan Stacey, the founder, and director of The Fountain of Hope Ministries located in Phoenix, AZ. Susan ministers to the victims of prostitution and those caught in the sex trafficking industry.
As we wrap this series up, we obviously know that pornography doesn’t lead all men into prostitution. But if we stop there, we miss the heart of the real problem, and that is women are not sex objects. Women are made in the image of God and are the pinnacle of His creation.
As Christian men, we need to hear this loud and clear. We are to protect them, not abuse them. If you need examples of how a perfect man treated women, read the Gospel of John 4 and 8.
I also would like to mention a resource from our friends at Covenant Eyes; it’s a pamphlet called “Stop The Demand: The Role of Porn in Sex Trafficking”. You can visit CovenantEyes.com for more information.
In today’s podcast, we’ll discuss several things:
- What does it look like to be a first responder in this area of sex trafficking?
- Learn why it’s going to take more than listening to a three-point sermon to fix this problem.
- How God broke my heart while I was visiting Susan’s ministry one day.
Gentlemen, did you catch Susan’s prayer for you. She said that she wants you to know that if you are involved in pornography or other forms of sexual sin, that nothing is too hard for the Lord.
Then the Lord said to Abraham, “Why did Sarah laugh? Why did she say, ‘Can an old woman like me have a baby?’ 14 Is anything too hard for the Lord?
Then the Lord said to Moses, “Has my arm lost its power? Now you will see whether or not my word comes true!”
The prophet Jeremiah writes, “O Sovereign Lord! You made the heavens and earth by your strong hand and powerful arm. Nothing is too hard for you!
Jesus looked at the disciples intently and said, “Humanly speaking, it is impossible. But with God everything is possible.”
So, do you believe that? That with God everything is possible? Why not? Is it because you’re alone? You don’t have to be my friend. That’s why this podcast exists, the resources on the website along with the book and workbooks.
