The video sex scandal involving Philippine actress Katrina Halili and celebrity doctor Hayden Kho is a good illustration that our sins have consequences. Also, news about sexual abuse and the degradation of women should remind us that human beings are created in God's image. It is from this "being in God's image" that gives us dignity and separates us from other of His creation. Women in particular has a special divine purpose on Earth and deserve their dignity to be respected and protected, it doesn't matter who they are, what their past is or the image they portray in public.
Halili and Kho made bad choices and are now paying the consequences. If accusations about Kho is true, he clearly violated Halili as a person and robbed her of the dignity God has given her - he should be held accountable for his actions. For all of us, the best way to respond to the sex scandal is to pray for everyone involved, learn God's perspective on the situation and answer the question, "how now shall I live?" For starters, refuse to view or pass the controversial sex video to others.
