European Baptists seek end to demand for prostitution

25 posts in this topic

I never even knew there was a European Baptist divison

I like the scriptual quote:

Christians are "wrestling against spiritual wickedness in high places", he added.

Name that book of the Bible (where the quote is derived)...A slight clue New Testament :D:p

I am sure our TheVicar would indeed be in agreement :eek:

I wish them luck. Will this occur after financial stability, world peace, England win the World cup or other more unlikely events.

obviously there is, but just as with victims of trafficing there's so few of

them that they are almost impossible to find...

Ephesians 6:12, however the King James Version is :-

For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

I just came to think about this expression

"the Baptist-bootlegger alliance."

which refers to political bargains struck by special interest groups to advance some shared goal, usually at the expense of average consumers.

The Baptists enter into the alliance for moral reasons; the bootleggers join out of practical self-interest.

The prohibition in America:

The temperance activists, guided by their religious beliefs, wanted to reduce the number of legal opportunities for consumers to buy liquor.

The bootleggers supported sales restrictions in order to force consumers to purchase homemade booze, instead of the legal stuff brewed by their (legal) competitors.

"Swedish Baptist pastor and Chairman of the EBF anti-trafficking working group, Sven-Gunnar Liden, said that human trafficking "destroys women, children and men through ruthless exploitation" and is a "major topic" for Europe's churches."

Had to be a Swede!!!! :D

Is that the church/religion you referring to here,Canberra?? :D:rolleyes:

Heaven and earth will disappear, but my words will never disappear.

Name the biblical passage - Again we looking at New Testament (clue)

I don't think I will ask TheVicar this time, since he seems more versed in the issues of Eastenders than the good book :eek:

Mark 13:31.

Mark 8:29 - And he asked them, "But who do you say that I am?" Peter said to him in reply, "You are the Messiah." 30. Then he warned them not to tell anyone about him. (So why the proselytising? :D)

seems like Caitlin has joined this organisation :D

Ye gods and little fishes no! :eek:

I'm an ex-Sunday School teacher. :D

Just to say there has been no proselytising by me here. I suspect the interpretation lies more within your mind than the words I have posted...

Simply view it in the same way when I take someone's word (or my own) and ask them to 'name that tune' (from those very words):D

Actually, what I meant was that if Jesus said, "Don't tell anyone", why do Christians proselytise? I'm not accusing you lol!

Ah, you'll be one of them Anglican types though.

(I was Presbyterian CoS.)

Ah you see old JC wasn't quite so dumb as some would have us think, he knew that by saying "Don't tell anyone" that it would be common knowledge in about a half an hour.

Another bunch of ''do gooders'' on the block with a half-hearted dig at the paid sex business.

I dont see them doing something genuinely useful, like tackling the US porn film industry which promotes bareback and multiple-penetration sex with teenage girls, head on with a moral crusade.

And rather than trotting out the party line in the press release, any good journo would have asked how they'd differentiate between trafficked people and those who were happy and had a genuine desire to work in the adult sex industry, ie: making a career out of it.

With these idiots, Harriet Harman, slimy Mandelson and now local authorities are banning kids from having ketchup, there is something seriously wrong with the mentality of those in power.

Let's call them 'The Interferers'. We've just sleepwalked into acceptance of anything they say.

I just wish there was a country I can go to emigrate to where none of this interference and political correctness happens.
