People made in God's image are being used. My heart is broken. But did you know that the Super Bowl is one of the top sex trafficking events every year in America?
Facts and Stats - There are an estimated 27 million slaves worldwide today, enough to fill the New Orleans Superdome to capacity almost 353 times. - There are roughly 200,000 slaves in the United States today. It is the equivalent of the full rosters of close to 3,774 football teams. - Two children are sold into slavery every minute worldwide. 508 children were sold during the 254 minutes of the 2013 Super Bowl broadcast. - The human trafficking industry brings in nearly 32 billion dollars each year. That is 139 times more than the $230 million made by broadcast ad sales for the 2013 Super Bowl. - The average slave is sold for no more than $90. The cheapest ticket for the Super Bowl started at $650.
In 2014, the Super Bowl will be hosted at MetLife stadium in New Jersey. I enjoy watching the Super Bowl every year, but this year, I have a new outlook on what really matters.
Sports are exciting, but I will be praying more this year for God's power to push back the darkness.
Laws or government will not ultimately fix this issue. The church is the answer to helping people in the darkness see the light of Jesus.
I believe this is one of the issues of my generation that we need to stop turning a blind eye to.
