By Isaiah Brown
In certain places, mass sexual services have become increasingly popular. So much so that certain areas are referred to as hotspots for sexual tourism. Because of its popularity, sex work is now seen as a job to some people. This title has not been accepted by all because prostitution isn’t the type of job where you see workers going to the bank and cashing a check.
Christianity’s position on Sex trade makes it seem like it’s immoral but can always be forgiven even if it’s in the bible or not.
Now i am not saying you should just go out there and sell your body for the greater good or to think that prostitution is morally wrong because in the higher powers eye everything is an abomination. We invite you to open your mind instead of having the notion of a bad or positive site. Therefore I want you to have a neutral mindset towards it.
In several communities, religion is an an essential part of culture. Religious people are strongly against the legalization.
Prostitution for moral reasons In the New Testament uses the phrase ‘sexual immorality’, which means sexual activity outside of marriage is a great sin. This means sex with anyone you’re not married to is considered a sin. In both the Old Testament and New Testament, it was assumed both men and women would remain virgins until marriage. Churches and or places of worship are dedicated to maintaining this belief and practice. According to Christianity, prostitutes are sinners.
A sex worker is a person who is employed in the Sex industry. Some sex workers are paid to engage in sex acts like prostitutes, while others are pornographic actors who engage in sexually explicit behavior on film or in photos. Phone sex operators have sexuall conversations with clients. Other sex workers are paid to engage in live performance, such as web cam sex, perform live sex shows, or stripping for customers. Sexual surrogates often engage in sexual activity as part of therapy with their clients.
Many people wonder why would anyone apply themselves to sex work. Doctors have said sexual activity improves the immune system. A study conducted at Wilkes University in Pennsylvania examined a women who had sex once or twice a week. The study shows that it also helped her immune system to fight off the germs, bacteria and viruses. Another known fact doctors and researchers have found is that it lowers blood pressure. Quoting from the website “There have been many studies,” he says. “One landmark study found that sexual intercourse specifically (not masturbation) lowered systolic Blood Pressure.”
As you can see it is targeted around the age of 21-25 year old range and in second place it’s 16-18 year old women and girls. Most importantly the Christian belief feels like they are obligated to do this and that to help kids not become prostitutes. It’s a good thing but in the end faith isn’t going to get the kid out of the place there already in.
Prostitution is mainly seen around bad or poor neighborhoods. It supposed to increase the wealth around the neighborhood and or increase the tourist or attractions. For example Amsterdam the red light district, without it is just a boring place to be. Another place is Thailand, Bangkok, It’s a very poor place where it’s hard to make a hard dollar but you can’t get a job and the only thing you can do it become either prostitute or a Sex worker.
The Bible is the most important thing that was written by Christianity. The Bible says that prostitution is immoral. Proverbs 23:27-28 says, “For a prostitute is a deep pit and a wayward wife is a narrow well. Like a bandit she lies in wait, and multiplies the unfaithful among men.”God forbids involvement with prostitutes because it is considered bad form to both men and women. “For the lips of an immoral woman drip honey, And her mouth is smoother than oil; But in the end she is bitter as wormwood, Sharp as a two-edged sword. Her feet go down to death, Her steps lay hold of hell” (Proverbs 5:3-5 NKJV).
Christians believe Prostitution not only destroys marriages, families, and lives, but it destroys the spirit and soul. First Corinthians 6:13 says, “The body is not for sexual immorality but for the Lord, and the Lord for the body.” Although prostitution is sinful, Christians believe prostitutes can find forgiveness. The Bible has the story of a prostitute named Rahab whose family were rewarded and blessed for her devotion to God (Joshua 2:1; 6:17-25). In the New Testament, a woman who had been known for being a sexual sinner brought a bottle of expensive perfume to Jesus. In regret and repentance, the woman wept and poured perfume on his feet, Jesus accepted the woman’s worship. Because of her faith, Christ forgave all her sins, and she was went to heaven (Luke 7:36-50).
We all know that when it comes to religion it has a major role on what we do in our society. Christianity sees sex trade as a sin and morally wrong. Jesus also showed that sex workers can be forgiven. Christianity sees sex trade as an immoral thing. Therefore the society looks at it in the immoral way. Therefore Sex workers can accept Christianity and can be saved. That also means Christianity accepts ex trade, but can help sex trade, but can help those involved if turn to religion.
