The 'End It' Movement | Will you join us?


Today is an awareness day.  All across the globe, people are coming together to be the voice for the 27 million victims of human trafficking.  We are raising awareness and taking a public stand against this injustice by drawing a red X on our hand.  Would you join us?

Facts about modern slavery:

  • There is an estimated 27 million humans being trafficked today.
  • Globally, the average cost of a slave is $90.
  • The average age of entry into the commercial sex industry in the U.S. is 12-14 years old.
  • 80-90% of sexually exploited people have a history of being sexually abused as a child.
  • Pimps recruit children at malls, bus stops, parties, around schools, through other youth, and online.
  • Between 14,500 to 17,500 people are trafficked into the U.S. per year.
  • Human trafficking is the third largest international crime industry (behind legal drugs and arms trafficking).

  3. Kidnapping is a capital crime. Ex 21:16

    Rape of an unengaged, unmarried woman requires a double-dowry (equiv 50shekels) to be paid to the father, and an unbreakable marriage covenant with the raped woman. Deut 22:28, 29

    Consensual intercourse with an unengaged, unmarried woman requires the standard dowry (equiv 25 shekels) to be paid to the father - whether or not the father allows the marriage of his daughter or not.

    Consensual intercourse or rape of a married woman, or men-with-men also a capital crime.

    Defiance against these judgments is backed by the threat of capital execution for contumacy against the sentence of the Court.

    God, who gives men life, requires innocent men to take the life of those who smash at His image in man according to His definitions. If they refuse, He promises to take away the life of those refuse (Gen. 9:5,6 "I will require...") This is why our current civilization will pretty much be destroyed before Christ's Church will reconstruct it out of the rubble by re-teaching Christ's Imperial majesty as lawgiver, judge, and emperor.Refusal to execute the capital criminal results in far worse consequences that executing one. Take God's Word for it. Review the stories about Ahab refusing to execute God's enemy, Syrian king Ben-Hadad, the refusal of the tribe of Benjamin to execute their rapists/wanna-be-Sodomites, and the threat of Jehu's threat to his soldiers if they allowed any Ba'al worshipers to escape execution.

    Reflect on how various types of capital criminals, in our American civilization, are showing their intent to persecute, and ultimately execute Christians and those who dare publish the principles above. There is a self-defense element here. Do you want to kill others, in obedience to God, or have God use wicked men to kill you -- or perhaps worse -- allow wicked men to coerce "good men" to themselves commit capital crimes. This type of persecution is already being inflicted on our Christian brethren in the world. Their affliction of your soul gives the demons more satisfaction than inflicting pains to your soul. Rather fear Him (and His Word) who has the power to destroy both body and soul.

  4. I am so glad there is a set day where people can come together and raise awareness of this horrid reality. It must be stopped! Thanks so much for sharing!
