Argumentative Essay On Modern Day Slavery
The organization, Exodus Cry, has not only raised an awareness of the issue of human trafficking, but has also realized that the only way slavery will come to an end is by praying for the justice of God to overthrow the darkness and evil of modern-day slavery. Lou Engle, one of Exodus Cry’s abolitionists, declares, “We need Wilberforces to challenge it [slavery] in the public places of politics and we need fasting and prayer to pull it down” (Nolot). Lou Engle does not negate the necessity for political interventions, but challenges himself and other abolitionists to turn to God, the source of true justice, and to cry out for those who have become silenced due to their enslavement. By examining the history of slavery, one can notice characteristics that continue to be prevalent in the modern era.
