Prostitution should be banned – Part II

Instead of appealing to legalize prostitution, women need to continue their fight to establish themselves and get due justice and dignity. In most of the cases, ignorance and innocence of women are taken advantage of to manipulate them. Five-year-old girls to an eighty-year-old women experience the same monstrous treatment from sexually-starved men.

Prostitution activities are also rampant near some police stations. The cops at the police station are fully aware of these incidents but have failed to take any action against it. When I spoke a prostitute, she informed me that she has to pay half the remuneration earned by her as bribes to the police. She also added that some police men also visit brothels. Not just married women, but even young girls are a part of this business. In First Corinthians Chapter 6, verse 19, we read, “Do you not know that your bodies are the temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own.” Here, temple means sanctuary which we are supposed to keep holy.

This reminds me of a song which we sing in church. The words of the song go like this: “Know ye not, know ye not, you’re the temple, Know ye not, know ye not, you’re the temple, Know ye not, know ye not, you’re the temple, You’re the temple of the Holy Ghost. Yes, I am, Yes, I am, I’m the temple, Yes, I am, Yes I am, I’m the temple, I am the temple of the Holy Ghost.” Although prostitution is sinful, prostitutes are not beyond God’s scope of forgiveness. The Holy Book records His use of a prostitute named Rahab to further the fulfillment of His plan. As a result of her obedience, she and her family were rewarded and blessed. In the New Testament, a woman by the name of Mary Magadeline who had been known for being a sexual sinner — before Jesus forgave her and cleansed her from her sin — found an opportunity to serve Jesus while He was visiting the home of a Pharisee. The woman after recognizing Christ brought a bottle of expensive perfume for Him. In regret and repentance, the woman wept and poured some perfume on His feet, wiping it with her hair. When the Pharisees criticized Jesus for accepting this act of love from the immoral woman, He admonished them and accepted the woman’s worship. Because of her faith, Jesus had forgiven her of all her sins, and she was received into His kingdom. (Luke Chapter 7, verses 36 to 50).
