Disagrees with idea of legal prostitution

 


The prostitution opinion article missed one “small” detail. What about design? As an example, dad bought this really nice Case IH Quadtrac. The engine is designed to run on diesel, though, it will run on gasoline. I’d get serious acceleration and power out of that “sluggish” diesel motor, something that I like in motors! But alas, that desire for instantaneous gratification seizes up the engine in less than a minute. Not good. Really a poor choice actually, being that I could use that tractor for years and years by following the manufacturer’s recommendations.

Here’s the connection. God Almighty is the manufacturer, and the tractor is the family unit he manufactured (not to mention all the rest of our world he made). Yep, this world isn’t perfect and there just are no perfect families, but we have been given hope. Hope not in lowering the bar. That’s hopeless. No, God gives us hope and acceptance that provides his way to real life through Jesus, His son, because he promises to walk with us in our hardships. That promise he gives us in his holy word plus the instructions to make it reality. So, for me, as a father of three daughters and two sons, four grandsons and three granddaughters, what am I thinking that I could with any kind of conscience think that prostitution could be a legitimate “profession,” a “victimless crime”? Really? Just seems logical, with unlimited benefits, for humanity to stick with the manufacturer’s recommendations.
