Sex Crimes go unpunished!

"Nearly 99 out of 100 sexual offences go unpunished, official figures reveal", The Metro Thursday 10th Jan 2013. These recent news headlines caught my attention! I was astounded to read that on average nearly half-a-million people claim to have been victims of sex crimes; however just one in ten of those are recorded by the police. Many girls do not go to the police when they have been attacked as they feel that they will not be taken seriously. This is a terrible reflection of the state of morals in our society. Is it the result of trivializing sex in our culture and the value of it's enjoyment within marriage? Do people feel that as anything goes sexually that we should not be surprised when things get out of hand and what could be considered liberty in one setting becomes a crime in another? The bible says 'righteousness exalts a nation but sin is a reproach unto any people' (Proverbs 14. 34). We need to repent of our personal sexual sins (actual and virtual through pornography and the Internet), care for those who are vulnerable and recognise that when standards drop so do the safeguards that protect us from our own evil. Sexual sin and crime starts when we reduce our moral guard and refuse to obey the standards that God has defined for us in His Word, the Bible.
