'Nefarious' Docu-Drama Unmasks Global Sex Trade

Ad Feedback

Slavery. It seems like such an archaic concept. But according to human rights organizations the practice is alive and well, with sex trafficking spanning roughly 151 countries across the globe.

The Department of Human and Health Services defines the sex trafficking as "a modern-day form of slavery in which a commercial sex act is induced by force, fraud, or coercion…"

Benjamin Nolot, a former member of the International House of Prayer, first learned of the modern day practice in 2007. 

It was then, he recalled, that a woman he'd never met before approached him and said, "God told me to give you $10,000 to start an organization to fight human trafficking."

Since that time, Nolot has fearlessly taken up his post on "the battlefront of the century," launching the organization Exodus Cry.

The group recently completed the first installment of a new docu-drama called, "Nefarious: Merchant of Souls." The movie seeks to unmask the dark secrets of the sex trade.

"The CIA would say that the sale of women -- we're not talking pornography and we're not even talking about prostitution -- we're just talking about the sale of women constitutes the third largest industry in the world," one man said, explaining the practice in an excerpt from the trailer of new film.

Filmmaker Benjamin Nolot will talk more about his new film and the modern day scourge of sex trafficking, on "The 700 Club," Sept. 27. Check your local listings or check back with CBNNews.com on Tuesday after 10 a.m. ET for the interview.
