‘Watchmen on the Wall’ is back on TBN Africa tonight at 8pm (11 June) after a two week absence due to live event broadcasts. The program will feature the vision of Family Policy Institute.
Following the Commission of Gender Equality’s (CGE) controversial support for decriminalised prostitution in SA, ‘Watchmen on the Wall’ spoke to Professor Amanda Gouws of the CGE.
It appears the CGE was heavily influenced by SWEAT, the foreign-funded pro-prostitution group.
When asked if the CGE consulted widely enough and included ministries involved in rescuing women from prostitution, Ms Gouws replied, “we are not obligated to consult with everybody.”
However, the CGE did solicit the views of groups aggressively promoting the decriminalisation of the entire sex industry in SA – a policy proven to be devastating to vulnerable women and children.
We did what the blatantly biased CGE should have done and interviewed four young women recently rescued from sexual slavery. Their stories expose the myth of “legitimised sex work.”
The CGE claims to “transform society by exposing gender discrimination in laws, policies and practises.” However, research overwhelmingly indicates that women and children are mercilessly abused, exploited and trafficked in the sex industry – regardless of its legal status.
The Gender Commission’s support for a decriminalised sex industry therefore is a tragic and morally reprehensible departure from its stated objectives – to protect women in society.
The WoW program on decriminalised prostitution will be broadcast on TBN on 18 June at 8pm.
This past weekend I preached a prophetic word at Christian Family Church in JHB entitled, “Rebuilding the Walls.” I find many similarities with Nehemiah’s experience in the Bible and our current situation of a nation vulnerable to attack because its defensive walls lie in ruins.
I travel to Gauteng this week to attend a significant meeting of senior Christian leaders in Pretoria on 13 June. We are trusting God for a divine strategy to rebuild the spiritual walls of our nation to protect our marriages, families, and the preaching of God’s uncompromised Word.
Please commit to pray for this significant gathering. We desperately need to hear from God.
As mentioned in previous newsletters, Family Policy Institute is experimenting with new and innovative ways to raise the funding we desperately need to continue our vital work in SA.
One such initiative is the “1 Kitchen 2 Sisters” culinary event at Bon Amis Café in Durbanville on Wednesday, July 3, 2013, at 18h00. Proceeds from this event will help support our work in SA.
The mini demo and dine includes a three course meal, wine and a silent painting auction.
Tickets are available at Computicket or via FPI. Bookings of 8 will receive a 10 percent discount.
Please also pray for us as I gear up the ministry to provide the Christian community with honest, accurate information and analysis of the General Elections in 2014.
Next year’s elections may turn out to be our most significant yet! As a result, the reliability of the information you receive about SA’s changing political landscape will be critical.
In fact, the nation’s direction may be significantly influenced by the Christian vote post 2014. As Jesus said, “Take heed you are not deceived.” The decisions you make are crucial for SA!
