Skip to comments.How God prepared former Dodgers GM to fight sex trafficking: Itís spiritual warfare
Posted on 12/04/2018 5:14:47 PM PST by huldah1776
Former Los Angeles Dodgers general manager and vice president Kevin Malone is a passionate man. It may well have been his passion that led to a confrontation with a fan in San Diego in 2001 that later resulted in his resignation from the senior circuit ballclub and proved to be the last moments of his 17-year Major League Baseball career.
But in the years following Malones departure from baseball, God pointed his passionate heart toward a new area of interest, one that he wasnt really fully aware of until he went on a trip to Thailand with his pastor at Cornerstone Community Church in Simi Valley.
Thanks in part to pastor and Crazy Love author Francis Chan, Malone would be introduced to his new devotion the fight to abolish child sex trafficking in 2009.
Fast forward to today, Malone is highly active in the fight to eliminate child sex trafficking in the United States as he says, there are over 100,000 children 17 and under being trafficked for sex inside the U.S.
Malone co-founded the U.S. Institute Against Human Trafficking in 2016 with the goal of completely eradicating child sex trafficking within the U.S.
Along with financing a number of homes for trafficked girls throughout the nation, the institute is also responsible launching the first safe home for trafficked boys in the state of Florida and has also helped other anti-sex trafficking organizations improve their efficiency by sharing best practices from ministries, NGOs and organizations around the country.

10 Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of His might.
11 Put on the full armor of God, so that you will be able to stand firm against the schemes of the devil.
12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places.
13 Therefore, take up the full armor of God, so that you will be able to resist in the evil day, and having done everything, to stand firm.
14 Stand firm therefore, having girded your loins with truth, and having put on the breastplate of righteousness, 15 and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace; 16 in addition to all, taking up the shield of faith with which you will be able to extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one.
17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.
18 With all prayer and petition pray at all times in the Spirit, and with this in view, be on the alert with all perseverance and petition for all the saints,
Amen. It can be easy to give Satan more credit than he deserves. He is already defeated. GOD is stronger. Always.
Thank you for posting and Godspeed. We need more positive posts.
Sin is pleasurable for a season.
The demand will forever remain because pedophiles enjoy their sin.
There will always be demand, because even if existing sinners repent or are removed there will always be new people who become the same kind of sinners.
There is nothing new under the sun.
The best way to reduce demand is with millstones, and the depths of the sea. A penalty harsh, final, and to be feared.
Fearing hell helps, too. Not many believe it is for real. Same as they don’t believe in the wrath of God. People don’t believe God rules the nations. Maybe because they vote now and make the rules.
The devil’s game is a mind game, which digs deep into the mind of those who have been mentally abused.
“even if existing sinners repent”
that does sound kind of lackadaisical... where are you in gospel mission mindedness?
