Last week Christians gathered in Philadelphia for the three-day Justice Conference and Film Festival. Event organizer Ken Wytsma is popularizing the concept theology of justice by which he means "an understanding of God should compel love for others and engagement in justice."
One of the issues discussed at the conference was sexual exploitation by sex trafficking. The participants are committed to ending this abusive practice and Lisa Thompson, the Salvation Army's liaison for the abolition of sexual trafficking, spoke on this topic, "One of the reasons sex trafficking is flourishing is that we, as a Church, do not do enough to address the ideology that disassociates sex from love."
