“DIRTY DOZEN” COMPANIES FOR SEXUAL EXPLOITATION–WHAT SHOULD CHRISTIANS DO?

Heavenly Father, You know all, see all, and are heartbroken over the oppressed and the oppressors. (Eccl 4:1) We look to You for help and hope.

The Christian Post reported on a list of the top 13 companies contributing to sexual exploitation. This article has a nice little intro explaining how all the sexual exploitation that goes on the resulting in trafficking does not happen in a vacuum:

NCOSE, a nonpartisan nonprofit dedicated to addressing the ‘full-spectrum’ of sexual exploitation, has put out an annual Dirty Dozen List since 2013.

The list serves as an activism tool to pressure companies with business practices that contribute to the sexual exploitation of people to change course. . . .

‘No mainstream entity should profit or facilitate sexual exploitation. Unfortunately, many well-established brands, companies and organizations in America do just that,’ McNamara said. ‘In today’s world, corporations drive our culture. They influence how people communicate, what information they receive and what trends are accepted or rejected.’

‘Right now there are mainstream companies that are normalizing pornography, facilitating online sex trafficking and grooming, selling sex dolls and incest materials or promoting eroticized child nudity books,’ she continued. ‘A culture that accepts these things will continue to create more victims of sexual abuse and sex trafficking than can ever be rescued.’”

Here are the baker’s dozen: SeekingArrangement, Visa, Amazon, TikTok, Wish, the state of Nevada, Massage Envy, Wyndham, Steam, Google, Netflix, Twitter, Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue. (Read the article for details.)

Honestly, my first thought was this:

“Oh no! I’m going to find out that all the companies that I love are involved in sexual exploitation and I’m going to have to find alternatives! How can I possibly handle another boycott?”

I’m just being honest here. I don’t know about you, but I feel pretty helpless and overwhelmed. It seems that nearly every company has gone over the deep end.

But I wanted to be well-informed, so I clicked on the article. The more I read, the more I begin to understand the interwoven parts of darkness in our culture. The sexualization and sexual exploitation in the [Super Bowl] halftime show is certainly not in isolation in our nation!

And just as I suspected, there are some companies that really bothered me that are on the list! About half of them I didn’t really know or care much about.

But what on earth can I do about Google or Amazon?

How am I ever going to change a cultural tide and get everybody to boycott Amazon?

How am I going to tell my kids they could never use Google again?

Sigh….

But before you just dismiss this list (as I was tempted to) as just being hopeless, perhaps the Holy Spirit would have us face the truth.

Perhaps all of us believers need to see what’s really going on here at the corporate level. Because at least if we see it, we can’t claim ignorance and we can’t live in denial.

Perhaps it will make us uncomfortable enough to be willing to speak up when it’s our turn to speak up. Perhaps we could even result in a groundswell of opposition.

I cannot expect a dark lost world to NOT fall into human depravity; but I can choose not to fall in with them.

Quite honestly, I don’t know what to do with his newfound information. So right now, I’m letting it sink into my heart and cause me to be just a little more broken. And I’m turning this feeling of helplessness into a prayer to a God who knows all, sees all, and is heartbroken for those who have rejected him and his ways.

What about you? As you pray, what is the Lord speaking to you about this?

  1. Feb 22, 2020: My husband received an unrequested “filthy” sexual advertisement in today’s mail with a blatant implied sexually exploitative message: the man was standing in shorts, with his legs separated with a young bikini-clad female on her knees, between his legs, smiling and looking “up” at him. This photograph was on the outside of the mailer so little children and teenagers could see it, along with adults. We are appalled this can go through the mail service. My husband cut-it-up with scissors and threw it away. How do we stop receiving this trash??? How do we stop being added to those mailing lists? Will appreciate your response!

  2. I’ve read the scriptures and each comment. I totally agree with Alex and thank the brother who listed Chuck Pierce’s”I will get”
    Being informed is being warned and armed and one’s response is a determining.
    The discussion about sexuality doesn’t excuse the “slight” to bend the warnings in God’s Word to slip and slide in and through a little look here and and a little prep there.
    HE said…no evil before your eyes, to be careful what you hear and care for the heart where from the “issues” of our lives “birth” from.
    Any questions? Doubts? Disputations?
    Take your foot and plant it upon, keeping it therein our enemy’s head….crushing continuously.
    Just a thought, backed in and by prayer.
    P.S.
    As true believing Christians, we KNOW what to do.

    1. I meant a little peep there, not prep.
      Auto correct….also Google via my Android phone.
      I plead THE BLOOD OF JESUS over, unto and throughput ea connected to the report and shall do all THE SPIRIT OF THE LORD indwelling me, tells me to do.

  3. As I sat wondering what to do the Holy Spirit said, “do you remember what you did as a child when you were wronged by your siblings and others.” I ran straight to my parents. Prayer at it’s basic is tattling to the one who has made provision for all life and godliness. I’m running to the one who desires all men to be saved and come to the knowledge of the truth. I’m asking and expecting Amos 5:24 to cover all these companies and the ones we don’t know about. Righteousness and justice are touching everything as the Lord’s “praying ones’ run interference on behalf of those who have no might. After we pray, Holy Spirit will give us divine strategies on exactly what to do. He’s the one who said, “He can do exceedingly, abundantly, above all we ask and think according to the power that works in us.” If he can close the wombs of women in a nation to make a point to a king who is keeping his servants wife in his quarters and keep him from touching her, can He and will He not uproot the enemy in creative ways as we stand in agreement with heaven. Praying is one of the most powerful things any of us can do. It will not be said in our day, “that none cried for justice.” I can hardly wait to see what happens as we cover these companies in prayer!

    1. Thank you Karen and Sylvia. I appreciate your replies.

      I truly believe if we leave spiritual darkness unchallenged, it will grow darker and obtain even more power and demonic authority than it began with. It’s time to gather together and deal with darkness safely and correctly.

      3
  4. I believe my wife and I have received revelation from the Lord on the companies that are involved. When we stay at a motel, we have a “legal contract” with the motel. We believe God honors contracts. Because we have a legal right or authority, we can pray in our room, and with identificational repentance, repent for all unrighteousness commited in our room, confess on behalf of whomever commited sins or transgressions, and ask our Father to forgive all of the sins and transgressions, and then clean our room with the blood of Jesus. We then declare the room to be clean and be a sanctuary and haven for us. ( see “Protecting Your Home from Spiritual Darkness”, by Chuck Pierce.)

    If, or when, we consider a purchase from Amazon, or with Visa, etc., we actually acquihire a contractual agreement with the company, and, I believe, have spiritual authority to pray and ask the Holy Spirit to cleanse and deal with sins and transgressions from our purchase. Those companies need cleansing from God in heaven. We are dealing with dark spirits, more than mankind. We have authority in the spiritual realm. This is an opportunity for us to use it.

    Please feel free to correct me if I’m off course.

    1. I want to be careful and specifically say yes I am against sexual exploiting. Which means, by the way unfair use of sex or sexuality. I.e. the use of children, sex slaves and the like. However, Uhmmm folks, standard uncovering of one’s body if it’s not before such as specifically a relative, is not sin. At least I have not found it in scripture.

      Have you not read where the men in the old testament made the women bear their breasts? In view of this if a woman willingly bears her body to be photographed, and tells her male family members, “Hey, don’t read this months ‘Playboy Magazine’ this month. Because this month I’m posting in it.” Her bases would be covered scripturally. This would be legitimate porn.

      Porn exploiting children, or sex slaves, this is sinful. I felt like this should be really thought about. That is, true sexual exploitation.

      Sorry those of you who think the porn issues is too hot to separate. But I think it SHOULD be addressed.

      I don’t believe at this time that if a man’s wife is having her period, and happens to be one that has a period for all of 7 days that he should be free of caring for his needs. I believe a Playboy can be considered safe territory, since men are turned on by sight and can easily view and uhmmm relax.

      If our Visa company is supportive of this form of porn then, at this point, I believe their in safe territory. But OH NO!, if otherwise.

      1. Hi Carolyn, Many years ago, when Dr. James Dobson of Focus on the Family was on radio and my children were young, he reported something I have used all these years, including youth in church, my kids and grandkids, and for twenty years with the delinquent young men and women I worked with. He said: (I’ll be paraphrasing but this is the gist) Boy and girl babies, after birth, experience an explosion of testosterone in their brains. The male infant’s left side’s nerve endings get singed; the female’s all get singed. Males are for the most part goal oriented; they focus on getting from point A to point Z. Women include nurturing, emotions, doing. They have fun going from A to B to C…. But the point of the “singeing” is that men wake up and go through their day thinking of sex. It’s not bad or good; it just is. If that’s the case, when they’re looking at a woman, any woman, they’re thinking sex. So let’s use that to protect ourselves best we can.

        1
      2. Hi Carolyn,
        I appreciate your honesty to share in this forum, so I will honestly reply. I don’t agree that people should show their naked bodies for others to lust after such as in Playboy. I agree with you that a husband would be aroused by looking at another woman’s body because he wants to have sex with her. However, Jesus said (Matt. 5:28) that one who looks at a woman to lust for her has committed adultery with her in his heart, and we know that adultery does not please God. God looks at the heart, and He calls it sin. I know several women whose husbands have looked at pornography, and it is not good for a marriage. God also tells husbands in Proverbs 5:15, “Drink water from your own cistern…rejoice in the wife of your youth…let her breasts satisfy you at all times.” God knew there would be “times” when a husband could not have sex with his wife, but he doesn’t make an exception for a man to look at a woman to lust for her during these times. Every man who is born of God has the fruit of self control in his spirit, and he can go a week without sex just fine.

        1. Hi Carla,
          Thank you for your input.
          I believe however that there is a difference between lusting after a woman in men’s heart and the automatic reaction that is in a man’s body. I would like to open this further up to some honest Christian men.
          Men get honest with us here. When you see a woman’s naked body are you automatically turned on the same way you automatically get a hard on when you’re embarrassed?
          When you see a naked womans body do you automatically get horny or do you want to have sex with her in your heart?

          Be honest men!
          I’m pursuing this for sincere clarity not for argumentation.
          In Him!

          1. Hi Carla, I believe there is a difference between lust within ones heart and the automatic reaction of a man’s body to a woman’s bare body. Have you never experienced feeling horny when you were really embarrassed? Men get actual hard ons when they are embarrassed. That’s an automatic God given reaction that can’t be stopped. I believe that in a man there is an automatic reaction of horniness when a man sees a nude woman’s body the same way that he gets a hard on when embarrassed. This is not lusting after a woman in his heart. Sweetheart I believe that there is a difference and I believe there are men even boys who need to receive the truth of the difference in this because they have been scared to separate the issues.
            There IS a difference between the two and women need to understand the difference and stop condemning men and boys for their
            natural reactions. They don’t have to feel l lust in their hearts in order to feel experience the God given lust of their flesh.
            Lusting after a woman in the heart involves covering her in his heart wanting her in more than just physical horniness.

            Dear heart the passage you are referring to that Jesus spoke
            said he was guilty of adultery WITH her in his heart.
            This indicates a connection in the spirit and the two uniting in sex in THEIR hearts.
            There is a difference. One is determined action involving more than physical reaction. Our men and boys need to be set free unto the WHOLE TRUTH pertaining to this. Women we need to understand men and stop throwing the throwing
            the baby out with the bath water. Christian men please send in the truth here for us.
            This is a good place to get really honest.
            If Christian women can understand the truth of how God created you and you can even get honest with youselves over the differences that I have shared here in, if I have shared the truth of your own experiences please speak up. This is an area wherein the roots of divorce often begins because too many Christian women have Rose colored glasses on, and are unwilling to get close to this subject. They are scared of the men deceiving them and that if they let such in like Playboy the next step will be adultery.
            Dr. Dobson, have you ever taken the time to know the whole truth of this by testing yourself out? Christian men who have discovered the truth come out of hiding and tell me. Am I right about this? I think this is one area of secrecy with the men that if honestly realized with the women would end a root of divorce. One of the unreconcilable differences.
            I’m only after the truth here, not argumentation. Heavenly Father bring forth Your truth here within that sets men and women free. In Jesus mighty name. Amen.

    2. I believe you are correct and Chuck Pierce an accurate spiritual advisor. The sexual pattern inherent in human beings is or the Creator and you CAN walk in Godliness sexually even as any other area. Thanks.

  5. I am thankful for the information and pray that the next generation has revelation knowledge as to the foundation they are building by supporting “new and better”. In the mighty name of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by the power of Holy Spirit and the shed blood on the cross, i take authority over the foul spirit of all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, for they are not of our Heavenly Father, but are of the world. This is found in 1st John 2:16. I pray that they would build their foundation on Jesus Christ and His righteousness. I pray that the hearts of the fathers would be turned back to the children and the hearts of the children back to their fathers. God, i ask for this to be done. That men would be men and women would be women. That there would be a fear of the Lord in every heart in this nation. Please forgive us and create in us a clean heart and set a guard at the opening of our mouth, O Lord.

  6. Father, we are Your creation. Do not leave us in this pit.
    “For this purpose was the Son of God manifest, to destroy the works of the evil one.” (1 John 3:8)

    We grieve with You for the oppressed and enslaved, and we resist this evil in the power of Jesus’ Name!

  7. How top pray in this situation ? We must hit the evil spirits behind these companies, such as Greed , the root of all evil , sorcery (using drugs , alcohol etc to enslave dominate and manipulate people , and of course jezabel and witchcraft. Unless we do this any activism directed against these companies will have little effect. As an example I used to live in Concord NC. The home of Philip morris. One day I bound the spirit of nicotine addiction ,sorcery and greed influencing the company . A little while later a newspaper reporter interviewed me on the street and asked for my opinion on the closing of the cigarette factory ! So Father God in the name of Jesus , we bind spirits of Jezabel , greed , sorcery , witchcraft that are influencing all the people working in these companies and others who are involved in prostitution , pronography , drug dealing . And we loose repentance from dead works and the knowledge of salvation , and also self deception and lies . Thank you God ! Also we pray for exposing the hidden works of darkness and setting the captives free.

  8. Lord I pray and seek Holy Spirits guidance in all we do, may we be good stewards of your love and word. Holy Spirit may your discernment guide us in what we choose to follow in this world today.

    God is a gentleman and He will not make us do anything we do not want to do. We come to Jesus asking for forgiveness of sin, it is granted as the word says it will be. We become new creatures in Christ the old things are gone (2 Corinthians 5:17). We have to remember that God gave us a choice to follow Him. Joshua 24:15 says for us to choose whom we will follow, so we have the free will to make choices in our life. God has given us power, authority and love to be examples in this world. Let us pray for souls before we do anything else, this is very crucial. We must choose where we walk, the life to follow Jesus, and take the steps to make it happen. Jesus is not going to do it all before we show Him our faith in Him. If we know something to be sin in our heart then we must change that sin to good. James 4:17 says So whoever knows to do right and fails to do it, for him it is sin. Luke 6:45 says… for it is out of the abundance of the heart that the mouth speaks. We must be true in our thoughts, deeds, and word stay turned to the Lord and then He will grant our prayers, He will heal our land, He is the promise giver and His word has already been written.

    I have deactivated Twitter now I am going to work on getting rid of some of these other programs.

    1. Jesus said we’re in the midst of a wicked and perverse generation,so we deny our flesh pick our cross and follow him lead by The Holy Spirit!outa the devil.. Jesus Christ Is Lord 🙌 of All!

      6
    1. I’m praying that Roe v Wade is overturned,so that our land can be cleansed from the blood that’s on our hands. I also pray that God fearing men will stand up and say NO to allowing what they know in advace is corrupt, into their living rooms. We can’t just complain. There must be a simple action of turning off the t.v. Lord i pray You will convict the hearts of people to not passively allow sexual immorality. May You be glorified in our lives, in Your people corporately, and may the standard of Your word be raised over our nation, for Your glory, in the name of Jesus.

      10
  9. Good old Helena Blavatsky, The Theosophical Society, The New Age Movement & good old Humanism. The spirit of anti-christ takes on many forms today and in history! (His Story is what really matters!) Hotel California was never on my bucket list, how about you? Did you get bit? Have you fully repented? In the world but not of the world?

    We must be vigilant to allow sanctification and transformation of our human spirit & our soul life to increase, (I die daily), without it we will not see the Lord.

    With Godliness and God Himself being trashed 24/7 all around us, Satan has cleverley decieved many through the fallen flesh so that people believe “what is good is evil and what is evil is good”. The enemy has many in the church chasing it’s tail. There is no such thing as a “good person”! (Jesus tells the rich young ruler that much! And he walked away, very sad! Trying to be good apart from Jesus doesn’t meet the whole requirementof the law, OT or NT). The righteous will live by Faith. Melchizedek met Abraham because of it.

    Hedonism is rampant in America, idolatry for the believer. Billy Graham was correct, of God hilds back judgement towards America He’d have to apologize to Sodom & Gommorah. With the Mayor of Indianapolis gaining traction in the Democratic primaries, Billy Graham was not far off.

    But I have this against you, that you tolerate the woman Jezebel, who calls herself a prophetess, and she teaches and leads My bond-servants astray so that they commit acts of immorality and eat things sacrificed to idols.
    Revelation 2:20

    Why are the nations in an uproar And the peoples devising a vain thing? The kings of the earth take their stand And the rulers take counsel together Against the Lord and against His Anointed, saying, “Let us tear their fetters apart And cast away their cords from us!” He who sits in the heavens laughs, The Lord scoffs at them. Then He will speak to them in His anger And terrify them in His fury, saying, “But as for Me, I have installed My King Upon Zion, My holy mountain.” “I will surely tell of the decree of the Lord : He said to Me, ‘You are My Son, Today I have begotten You. Ask of Me, and I will surely give the nations as Your inheritance, And the very ends of the earth as Your possession. You shall break them with a rod of iron, You shall shatter them like earthenware.’ ” Psalms 2:1‭-‬9

    1. Former mayor of South Bend, Indiana Not Indianapolis.

      Pray for “him” that his eyes will be opened to the Truth of All scripture, & Not to twist & choose the scriptures he uses for his purposes _ Not to bring glory to himself but to GOD while ignoring scripture that speaks clearly re: his lifestyle & sexual orientation.

      15
  10. This article is very timely! Thank you LORD! Is has been in my spirit for some time burning that Amazon is destroying the world our little towns and big ones the mom and pop stores all stores! and the business mountain to begin with( Think about the name Amazon ) Google Facebook the family church social and other mountain pillars. Now our groceries as well! What ever happened to monopolies being monitored? I felt I was possibly being fanatical but the impressions just got stronger and it was in my heart to bring this up tomorrow the day I pray with my friends- I believe we need to pray like never before that these entities bow their knee or fall. We can not allow this any longer! I haven’t read the above but will get to it. Thank you SAINTS we must stick together and press on. I know its hard at times believe me. We need to pray for each other too. love

    29
    1. Marilyn is on the right track. Will share this with our Thursday noon prayer group as well. “The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man (person) avails much (is very powerful). James 5:16

      8
    1. Your comments made me realize how Amazon is destroying our communities and neighborhood businesses, the convenience of having things sent to our home is one of the the temptations to use Amazon. No more, thank you and thank IFA for exposing these companies that we may pray for them.

      16
  11. I have to say that it seems ODD to me that the attached flyer embedded in links above are kind enough to pre-write our objections directly to Visa, but it’s via TWITTER ! Twitter’s one of the dirty dozen! Isn’t there another way to get their attention? A letter to the Board of Director president or someone?

    10
    1. Father, I come before you in the Name of Jesus Christ with thanksgiving. Praise You that You are looking for someone to stand in the gap. Lord, Your Word in Job 22:30 says You will even rescue the guilty one who will be rescued by the purity of our hands. Lord, I’m standing in the gap and calling out to You for the leaders of these companies. Shine Your light on them and allow them to see how dark they have become. Father, please call these heads of these companies to Jesus Your Son. Allow them to know the Truth so they can be set free. Bring understanding to them and guide them in Your Way. Remove the veil from off their hearts. Send Your laborers across their path. In Jesus’ Name I pray, Amen.

      36
      1. Amen. Not by power nor by might, but by my Spirit! The same Spirit that raised Christ from the dead. Flip the script of fear, doubt and unbelief and loose the authority of His word In you! In you He lives, moves & has His being. In Him …..

        12
  12. Dearest Lord,
    Hear us, Lord. Our hearts are overwhelmed and we need your Holy Spirit to give us wisdom and encouragement. We are fallen, broken and bombarded by the evil of this world. Satan is working overtime because he is in his last days. Lord Jesus, help us to be strong and courageous. Let us not grow weary of doing good and keep us from fear and discouragement. Maranatha, Maranatha! Come quickly, Lord Jesus, please come. In Your perfect and holy Name I pray!

    42
  13. I will try Brave and get a friend to do with me today. Yes we were appalled by the NFL half time show. I will never watch JLo again on any program. It was pure porn.
    Thank you and bless each of you helping by giving safe info to help rid these companies involved.

    21
  14. Either we speak up and realize the Chamber of Commerce and globalists are in this for control, power and money in every part of our lives and to begin a one size fits all religion or we stay silent and go to our death quietly. What would Jesus do? Our churches are 501c3s and need to make a decision.

    19
  15. Lord Jesus open the eyes of your children the church of Jesus Christ. May your Holy Spirit convict us and lead us into all truth so we can be set free from sin and judgment with a pure heart and holy hands. Oh LORD God forgive us. We do not want to be that lukewarm church that will be spit out. Thank you for your mercy and grace and conviction. Amen!

    41
  16. May the light of the Holy Spirit shine brighter through us as the sin in this world grows darker. What did Jesus do? He went and ate with the sinners in their home. He rebuked the religious group who wanted to stone a woman caught in adultery. He knew that most of them were committing the same sin! We are to overcome evil with good. Most of the New Testament is written to the church (His body) not to this evil world. God help us to pray, live holy, and be the love of God that never fails in a lost and dying world! I am in no way supporting the businesses that are promoting sexual sin. But if we are to boycott them we would have to go live in a cave. Because most worldly businesses commit sin. Thanks to Jesus he prayed this for us:
    “I do not ask that you take them out of the world, but that you keep them from the evil one. They are not of the world, just as I am not of the world. Sanctify them in the truth; your word is truth.” John‬ ‭17:15-17‬ ‭ESV‬‬

    22
  17. I stopped using google as main search engine and started using DuckDuckGo. Haven’t heard anything creepy about them….yet. Also I dropped Amazon, the dollars saved can never warrant using them. Visa is a problem because my local bank only uses the Visa MasterCard as a ATM and includes benefits of increased interest on accounts with it. But thanks because I’m gg to let them know this and see if we can’t change things! Or I will look for new bank.

    14
  18. What can one person do? The first thing I will do is place this issue on my daily prayer list asking God for assistance. Next, I will cease using Amazon for shipping, buying books, and use Brave Browser as suggested by Glenn Wilson. Thank you Father God for IFA and the knowledge I receive through this ministry. I pray that hundreds of thousands of of Christians will fall in line and do their part to bring pressure upon these companies, Amen!

Online Personal Safety
We hope and pray that all intercessors involved in Intercessors for America are trustworthy, well-meaning, and have a heart for prayer for our nation.

However, please take the same common sense precautions online as you would offline. People online are not necessarily who they say they are or seem to be. Never give out passwords, credit card information, or other private data. Be very wary of disclosing private information to a stranger you meet via prayer messaging. Even apparently innocent information, like the name of your employer, can be used against you by scammers.

When meeting with someone for the first time to gather to pray or establish a prayer group in your local area, please remember to:

Taking these precautions will help make your online experience safer. Any risk in using Intercessors for America’s online web tools to connect with others is assumed by you. Intercessors for America disclaims any liability or responsibility for acts, omissions, or conduct by you or any other party using its online web tools.
