Let’s WRAP it up!
The Salvation Army’s Initiative Against Sexual Trafficking is recognizing the 24th annual White Ribbon Against Pornography (WRAP) Week beginning Sunday, October 30. Running through November 6, the week is dedicated to creating awareness of our culture’s pornography problem as well as highlighting the harm done to adults and children alike by exposure to pornography.
The week also serves as a reminder for churches to confront the issue and to call all Christians to renewed lives of sexual purity and freedom.
Believing that pornography is a scourge on society and a distortion of God’s design for human happiness and well being, The Salvation Army’s Anti-Pornography initiative offers information and resources for families to protect themselves and to help others with pornography addiction. The Salvation Army also believes that pornography is one of the many facets of the Human Trafficking epidemic. The anti-pornography program is thus another effort to combat Human Trafficking.

Share the facts! Open the eyes of a friend by simply giving them the low-down on the negative societal effects of pornography. Check out www.TheSalvationArmyUSA.org for a list of resources.
Share a list of resources about sexual addiction treatment services available in your community.
Join the movement: Pray for the freedom of those caught in the spiritual bondage of addiction.
