People are being held hostage by those who use them to make money from their living bodies. It really is slavery, people being forced to render their services under conditions of threats, coercion, and basic servitude. There are five major and horrifying categories; First, organ harvesting is happening! For money, the powerful exploits the vulnerable! Criminals take the kidneys from their victims and sell them to illegal buyers. The donors receive very little from the sell, if anything at all. Second, domestic servitude is forcing people to work in private homes as maids, landscapers, etc. without pay, and being isolated from society. For money, the powerful exploits the vulnerable! Third, forced labor really does happen in manufacturing, entertainment, travel, farming, and construction. For money, the powerful exploits the vulnerable! They work under threats, or the burden of debt, their work permits and passports are taken from them, and their wages are not paid to them. Fourth, sexual exploitation is something we hear a lot about, such as human trafficking, pornography, escort services, etc. For money, the powerful exploit the vulnerable! Fifth, children of age 18 and under are being used for criminal exploitation, individual opportunists, traffickers, organized crime groups, and by those who should be protecting them. For money, the powerful exploits the vulnerable.
Exploitation of the vulnerable by the powerful is for very common and ancient causes; the pride of life, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes. It is rooted in the sin nature of humanity, and doesn’t have to be that way! Christ at the Cross of Calvary came to set us free from the bondage that sin holds us captive to. Whom the Son sets free is free indeed! We live in a world where Satan will use threats, coercion, fear, and violence to hinder us from responding to the love, kindness, mercy, and grace of God. Howbeit, whom the Son sets free is free indeed! How long will we live in a world that tolerates the powerful holding the vulnerable captive because of their past mistakes!? The blood of Christ washes those mistakes away to set the world free from organ harvesting, domestic servitude, forced labor, sexual exploitation, and child exploitation. Whom the Son sets free is free indeed! God calls us through the Cross of Christ, “All you, all you, up and free!” No more willing to play the game of “Hide-N-Seek.” Amnesty has come to defeat servitude and captivity to Satan. Christ summons us, “Come unto me, all ye that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.” Matthew 11:28-30
