Why make prostitution legal?
Let us NEVER confuse love with lust. Love is the essence of God. Love motivates Him to do what He does for us everyday—down to the last detail—even to the point of His Begotten Son’s death and even when we choose not to love Him back.
This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins.
-1 John 4:10
Lust, on the other hand, is contrary. It is purely deception. It’s not from God. It just makes us believe that it’s more fun and normal to satisfy the desires of the flesh than expressing love to our Savior.
Do not love the world or anything in the world. If anyone loves the world, love for the Father[a] is not in them. For everything in the world—the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life—comes not from the Father but from the world. The world and its desires pass away, but whoever does the will of God lives forever.
-1 John 2:15-17
Lately, there has been a crazy trend in the film industry. Media just kept exposing the mass from love affairs left and right, from movies namely ‘In the Name of Love’, ‘The Mistress’, ‘A Secret Affair’ to primetime series ‘A Beautiful Affair’ and ‘Temptation of a Wife’, just to mention a few. These trends simply distort the true essence of love, God’s love.
Remember: We love because our Father first loved us. -1 John 4:19
However, through these shows, the Godly-Divine love is demonstrated in the wrong and sinful way. Just imagine young minds exposed to such. What kind of love are we imparting them? Though there are Rated Strictly Parental Guidance and age brackets posted during previews, these are not enough to hinder the youth from being tempted. The more they get curious actually.
Indeed, the reality of having prostitution legal and the airing of wrong love affairs in cinemas and national television makes it so obvious that God’s standards are far different from this world’s or from man-made laws.
Let no one deceive you with empty words, for because of such things God’s wrath comes on those who are disobedient.
Wake up! Love is never an option. Lust is. We are all commanded by God to love one another. Let us not be deceived. Instead, we must walk against the flow and stand on God’s Word.
Spread His love and not lust. Never compromise.
