Fighting sexual abuse
Savenaca Vakaliwaliwa, Suva
Jimmy Swaggart in one of his sermons years ago said that when the Christian church lowers its high standards, the morality of the people is also lowered. When the Christian Church regard God's moral law, the Ten Commandments as no longer binding on us, we are allowing the nation to pursue the lust of the flesh and disobedience to God without having any guilt. The replacement of God's moral law with our own human rights has resulted in the increase of gays and lesbians and the Christian Church blessing same sex couples.
With the availability of porn at our fingertips, coupled with our fallen natures and the so called freedom from the moral law we Christians boast; it is no wonder that older people are being involved in sex abuse and also some young ones.
The Bible is clear that in the last days Christians will be in all sorts of morality problems, having a form of godliness but denying its power.
My point is, as a nation with a Christian majority, we Christians should first seek godliness through the transforming and empowering power of Christ and become model citizens in keeping both the moral and state laws.
When we Christians through Christ, overcome this tendency, urge or lust which leads to sexual abuse, non-Christians will follow suit. Nothing is impossible with God and in my books; He is the best solution in fighting sex abuse.
