Prostitution

<<engaging in sex for money>>

To make a living some people (normally women) engage in sex for money to satisfy the fleshly urge of another person without any commitment or consideration of the spirit connection (soul tie) that is formed. Any form of promiscuity or immorality is sin and is detrimental to both men and women, destroying families and lives, yet those who engage in this lifestyle can be forgiven if they turn to Jesus and leave the way of sin, while those remaining in this lifestyle will be barred from heaven (Mt 21:31,32; Lk 7:36-50; 1 Cor 6:9; 1 Tim 1:10; Rev 21:8). “The body is not for sexual immorality but for the Lord, and the Lord for the body…Those who sin sexually sin against their own body” (1 Cor 6:13-18). God desires we stay pure and use our bodies for His use and glory (Rom 6:13).

The Book of Proverbs repeatedly warns against yielding to the enticement of satisfying our God-given sexual desires wrongly by using terms such as: “lead astray, seduced, like an ox going to the slaughter, like a bird darting into a snare little knowing it will cost him his life” (Prov 5:1-10, 7:6-37, 9:14-27, 23:27,28).

People can also prostitute themselves or ‘sell-out’ to idol worship (Ex 23:24, 34:15,16).

Human trafficking is the illegal movement of people often for the sex trade. Child prostitution is particularly evil and Christians have sometimes campaigned against it.
