This morning Benj shared with me a news from yahoo regarding legalization of prostitution that the UN is urging the government of the Philippines to do. This news really breaks my heart and when I started to read it my tears wanted to fall from my eyes. How could these people think that this will benefit the people especially who are being abused or forced to be sex workers? There are other ways how will people can avoid HIV or STI’s. If people would just be aware of what the Bible is saying about this and how God wanted us to honor our body.
1 Corinthians 6:19-20 (NIV)
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.
Our bodies is a temple of God, in us the Holy Spirit lives and if that is the case how come that we are doing anything that is not pleasing to Him. We are not the owners of our body it is He who created us and not because He gave us free will we can do anything that we want.
Brothers and Sisters in Christ let’s be one in mourning because this surely breaks the heart of God. Let’s seek and plead to Him that this will not happen to our nation.
