The movie is a true story about human trafficking. It especially addresses the kidnapping of children as objects for sale to assuage the lusts of godless people. It is said that there are more people enslaved today than ever before in human history, and this move shines a great light on this evil.
If no one spent a dime on human trafficking, if
markets for children as commodities lacked paying customers, the entire “business” (if we honor this demonic enterprise with such a respectful label), would fail.
The same, however, is true regarding what is being done to stop
human trafficking. If good people will not support the battle against it with their voices, their dollars and their efforts, it may well fail also.
God has made it clear what is right when kidnapping is practiced:
“Kidnappers must be put to death, whether they are caught in possession of their victims or have already sold them as slaves,”
“If someone is caught kidnapping a fellow Israelite and treating or selling them as a slave, the kidnapper must die. You must purge the evil from among you,” Deuteronomy 24:7
God identified kidnapping as an evil that must be purged from among his people. We must do what we can to stand up for the innocent.
I could not help but consider as I watched the movie, “What if these were my children, my grandchildren.” The unthinkable is happening, and our nation is a top consumer. The least we can do would be to go see this movie.
Do not go to be entertained, however, but to be informed.
May God help us.
