Truth In Reality has created a signature event entitled “#99Seconds” that is an event that honors the experiences of survivors of domestic and sexual violence. The event is named #99Seconds because every 90 seconds a woman is sexually assaulted in the U.S. and every 9 seconds a woman is battered. By combining these two statistics we are promoting the little known fact that in the United States a woman is a victim of gender-based violence every 99 seconds.
#99Seconds aims to break the silence on gender-based violence and to directly tie in how domestic violence and sexual violence are normalized through modern entertainment. #99Seconds gives survivors a space to publicly reframe their experience, moving from victim to survivor and using the event as an opportunity for them to begin Redefining HERstory for themselves. (Please note that male survivors are open to participate and share their stories as well.)

Please join us for investigations into the onto-topology of the human anthropology that leads to both reverence and violence.
1 Cor 6:18-20 says Flee from sexual immorality. All other sins a person commits are outside the body, but whoever sins sexually, sins against their own body. Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God? You are not your own, for you were bought with a price. So glorify God in your body. We were bought with a price, and a costly one it was for all the sin of mankind. But its something about sexual sin that has a dangerous and disasterous effect to it. Simply put, its short term pleasure with long term consequences . This perhaps gives real meaning to the phrase "you reap what you sow".....this includes shame, guilt, pain and heart ache as well as a life time of regret. Truly a price we can't pay. The good news however is that Christ understands our struggle with the desires of the flesh and He loves us so much He seeks to save us from the bondage of sin. We must ask ourselves these and many other questions regarding sexual sin. Am I willing to lose my marriage with sexual sin? Am I ready to lose my family, friends to my own lustful cravings? How much am I willing to pay? And the master manipulator, Satan will never tell you the cost of this sin up front but he will be expecting you to pay in the end. Thanks be to God that we already have a way of escape through the cross, becuase Jesus already paid it all.
