When God finished with creation and rested, He said that it was “very good” says Genesis 1:31. The Hebrew word for “good” here is “towb “, and one of its meanings is “ethical.” So when God found creation “very good”, it does not merely refer to how pleasant it looked or its intricate machinery, though such things are clearly so and as a matter of fact is irrefutable evidence of the very existence of God according to Romans 1. Rather, it ALSO means that creation was morally pure, free from sin. The capacity to sin, however, was there. One third of the angels, including Satan, rebelled against God. But the cosmic significance of that act was of little consequence, as there was no covenant between God and the angels concerning creation. But God did make a covenant with Adam, the first man who not only represents humanity, but his named actually means mankind or humanity (); Adam would have dominion over the earth, and he could not eat from the tree of life. Did Adam ask to be in or agree to this covenant relationship? The answer is of no consequence; as sole creator and sovereign ruler of the universe, God had the right to initiate, set the terms of, and hold Adam to the terms of the covenant.
As we all know, Adam, the covenant representative of mankind, sinned by eating of the tree of life, and through him sin entered into all of creation including the human race. So, we cannot blame God for evil. We cannot even say “the devil made me do it.” No, the entire blame is upon mankind. And because mankind is wicked, evil, and totally depraved, we have events like this.
WOBURN, Massachusetts (AP) — A British man despondent over his sex life and his mounting debt shot his wife and baby daughter to death as they lay in bed together, covered them with a comforter and then bought a one-way ticket home to England, a prosecutor told a jury Friday. Neil Entwistle, 29, is charged in the fatal shootings of his 27-year-old wife, Rachel, and their 9-month-old daughter, Lillian Rose, in January 2006.His defense attorney said Entwistle was a loving husband and father who was so crazed with grief after discovering their bodies in their Hopkinton home that he flew to England to be consoled by his parents. “Everything he said and everything he did thereafter, he did because he loved them, he did because he loved them both,” Elliot Weinstein said.
The lawyers gave their opening statements Friday in Middlesex District Court after four days of jury selection. Assistant District Attorney Michael Fabbri told jurors that Entwistle had grown increasingly unhappy after the couple moved to the United States from England, where they met in 1999. Entwistle, a computer engineer, had been unable to find a job in the U.S., had fallen into debt and began trolling the Internet for sex, Fabbri said.
In the months before the killings, Entwistle visited Web sites for escort services and began exchanging e-mails with women with whom he sought to have sex. Weinstein told the jury that both Rachel and Neil Entwistle were computer-savvy and said other people had used the computer.
“Over and over and over again during this trial, you will learn that things are not the way they first appear,” he said. Authorities believe that Neil Entwistle took his father-in-law’s gun, shot his wife and daughter and then drove 40 miles back to return the weapon.
Fabbri said Entwistle’s DNA was found on an ammunition container, a gun lock and the grip of the .22-caliber handgun. He said Rachel Entwistle’s DNA was found in and on the muzzle of the gun. Rachel Entwistle’s mother, Priscilla Matterazzo, was called as the trial’s first witness.
During cross-examination, Entwistle’s attorney Stephanie Page focused her questions on Joseph Matterazzo’s gun collection. Priscilla Matterazzo said her husband kept the guns in a locked cabinet in a bedroom but left the key on a kitchen countertop. She said her husband liked to go target shooting and had taken Neil Entwistle with him at least twice.
Some people would look at this and blame the evil of the male gender. Others would blame what they call the outdated and restrictive institution of marriage. Others would blame the proliferation of handguns. Others would blame pornography and prostitution. If those are your cases, make them. But the Bible, God’s complete revelation of Himself and His Will to mankind that is infallible and the final authority in all matters, makes it clear that such tragedies like this are the result of sin, which is failure to live up to God’s righteousness, the inability to keep God’s commandments, and the resulting lack of purity in one’s thoughts and actions. The Bible tells us that all of mankind is guilty of sin, and all of mankind is without excuse.
So does this mean that mankind is without hope? A thousand times no! God sent His Son Jesus Christ to be born into the human race as a man, to die on a cross for our sins, and to be resurrected on the third day. All who through faith believe in this Jesus Christ will have their sin guilt forgiven and live for eternity with God in a new creation that will be just as ethical as the first. (Be not deceived, for faith is not mere intellectual assent or even conviction, but it requires a human response, which is OBEDIENCE. Jesus Christ explained the difference between intellectual conviction and obedient faith in Matthew 25:32-46, and further the book of James deals with the topic heavily.) But all who do not through faith believe in Jesus Christ will spend eternity in a lake of fire with no hope, no relief, and no love.
Now this is not to say that if you have obedient faith in Jesus Christ that you will never do anything bad or wrong again. Instead, this means that obedient faith in Jesus Christ means that you will not have to suffer the cosmic eternal consequences of your sin. So while the human depravity of a man who murders his wife and baby over money and sex is a useful illustration of the nature of sin, the intention of this is not to say “believe on Jesus Christ so that you can be a good person with upright moral character and never do anything like this.” That is not the point, for the lake of fire will contain plenty of good fathers, mothers, sons, and daughters. It will contain men of renown that gave themselves in acts of great courage and sacrifice. It will contain women that had a powerful loving and nurturing positive effects on the lives of many people. How is it possible for sinful people that have not been reconciled with God through Jesus Christ to lead good, decent, productive lives? That is the result of God’s common grace freely available to all men, for God still loves mankind. But common grace, and the good works done in it, is not saving grace, for indeed man is not saved by his good works but only through the work of Jesus Christ. What of the work of Jesus Christ, how could the work of this man save other men? Well Jesus Christ was not only fully man but also FULLY GOD, and that was why His works can save man when the works of other men cannot.
Instead, the point is that obedient faith in Jesus Christ will save your eternal existence from destruction in the lake of fire. Though we can experience great joys and serve the Lord in mighty ways in this life, from an eternal perspective, that is really all that matters. The glory that Christians will inherit the eternal perfect creation is not even worthy to be compared to our experiences in this flawed one that is doomed to be destroyed!
So I encourage you, if you are unsaved, to give your life to Jesus Christ today. Follow The Three Step Salvation Plan!

I say again, the Bible draws a direct link between false preachers and their doctrines with sexual immorality. More still, televangelists are engaging in conduct like this right out in the open because they know that they can get away with it! Back in the day, Aimee Semple McPherson, founder of the Church of the Foursquare Gospel denomination, claimed that she was kidnapped and held captive in order to explain her whereabouts during the time that she had run off with her boyfriend. These says, such tactics are wholly unneeded as these people can do whatever they wish right out in the open and no one cares … the news media doesn’t even bother with hunting down and exposing televangelists like they used to because they know that the Christians that follow them will continue to do so no matter what they do, and will instead attack the media for “touching God’s anointed and doing His prophets harm” for reporting the truth.

BIBLE MEDITATION: “. . . it is good for a man not to touch a woman. Nevertheless, to avoid fornication, let every man have his own wife, and let every woman have her own husband.” 1 Corinthians 7:1-2
DEVOTIONAL THOUGHT: Premarital sex always endangers future marital happiness. It follows as night follows day. Surveys have shown that those who were sexually pure when they went to the marriage altar have the greatest opportunity to have a happy marriage. You can understand why. Suppose a man says to a woman “I love you so much; I just can’t wait.” He talks her into giving in to his desires. Now think about a man who loves and respects a woman by keeping her pure. Do you see the trust that that builds? God has a wonderful plan for you. Sex is so bad outside marriage because it’s so good inside marriage.

Original link here. A former porn star has left the sex industry to start a new life as a college student and church secretary, a group ministering to sex workers announced Tuesday.
Sophia Lynn, 24, is now an office staff at Celebrate Community Church in Sioux Falls, South Dakota in the US, where she will work while attending college. The South Dakota church offered Lynn a place to live, a college scholarship, and a job at the church office when they heard she wanted to leave the sex business.
“This is like a dream,” Lynn reflected from her new home in South Dakota nearly a week after her move. “I hope I don’t have to wake up from this. I feel like my life has been saved.”
Lynn came from a self-described devout Christian family and entered the porn industry only to make money to support herself and her young child after a divorce.
“When you have bill collectors calling you every five minutes, you start to feel hopeless,” she said to ABC News last year.
She began with modelling but then was encouraged to try the porn business at the age of 18.
“I kept thinking, ‘Why am I doing this?’ But then I reminded [myself that] my car payment was due.”
Lynn was re-introduced to Jesus Christ and eventually delivered from the sex industry with the help of Heather Veitch, an ex-stripper turned Christian evangelist. Veitch, who founded the ministry JC (Jesus Christ)’s Girls, and has been counselling Lynn for more than a year.
Veitch said many girls want to leave the business, but find it difficult to start a new life.
“It takes the kind of commitment we’re seeing from Celebrate Community Church,” the ex-stripper explained. “This is the story of the little church that could.”
Celebrate Community Church claims to have 550 members and about 2,200 attendees on the weekends.
The South Dakota church first heard about Lynn when she appeared on an ABC news report last March and expressed her intention to leave the industry. The church reached out and invited Lynn to visit, but without success.
Instead, Veitch flew to South Dakota and spent a weekend educating the church on the size and extensiveness of America’s sex industry. The former stripper told the congregation that the first step towards helping girls like Sophia Lynn is to pray for them, which the church did, according to a report by the ministry.
“Three weeks later, my phone rang and it was Sophia,” Veitch recalled. “She told me she was ready to make a real life change and wanted some real help. I called Pastor Loy [of Celebrate Community Church] and told him God held up his end, so now what are we going to do?”
The following morning at 6 am Pastor Keith Loy called Veitch and said, “We’re ready to take this on.”
Sophia Lynn, who was living in New Jersey at the time, was on a plane to a new life in South Dakota six hours later.
“We’re not going to play church anymore,” Loy said. “We’re going to be a church.”
The JC’s Girls founder urges churches to follow Celebrate Community Church and help a sex worker leave the industry and start a new life.
“I’m calling it ‘One Church For One Girl Program’,” said Veitch.
Last month, a new documentary – “The PussyCat Preacher” – was released chronicling Veitch’s journey as she formed the ministry JC’s Girls. The film records her initial struggle with gaining acceptance from women at her former church in California to winning them over and actually bringing them to strip clubs to minister to dancers.
Veitch now resides in Las Vegas where her ministry is supported by Central Christian Church.

Original World Net Daily article link here. This article shows the depths of the Marxist radicalism controlling so many of our educational organizations and institutions, in this case the American Library Association.
A bizarre battle has erupted over the arrest on child pornography charges of a man at a California public library, with library and county officials siding against the staffer who called police to arrest the alleged criminal.
Librarian Brenda Biesterfeld was fired from her job after disregarding her supervisor’s orders not to call police.
Now a pro-family organization and a law firm are rallying support for her.
“We’ve come alongside her, providing media training and legal representation,” said Randy Thomasson, chief of the Campaign for Children and Families, a prominent pro-family leadership group. “Our goal is to get Brenda’s job back, to institute a new library policy that has no tolerance for obscenity and child pornography, and to send a nationwide message that child predators will not be allowed to ‘do their thing’ in libraries.”
Mathew Staver, head of Liberty Counsel, said his organization has sent a demand letter to the Tulare County Board of Supervisors challenging the librarian’s dismissal.
The incident developed on Feb. 28 when Beisterfeld, a single mother, was working in the Lindsay Branch library, and she noticed Donny Lynn Chrisler, 39, viewing child porn on one of the public-use computers.
“She immediately went to her supervisor, Judi Hill, who instructed her to give him a warning and explain that on his second warning he would be banned from the library,” Liberty Counsel said. “When Biesterfeld asked if she should call the police, Hill told her not to and that the library would handle it internally.”
She also was told that “this happens more often than she would think.” (My note: OF COURSE IT DOES. DON’T YOU THINK THAT WORD HAS GOTTEN OUT AMONG THE CHILD PORNOGRAPHY COMMUNITY, WHICH NETWORKS EXTENSIVELY, THAT LIBRARIES WILL NOT REPORT THEM???)
Biesterfeld was so unnerved by the situation, she talked with police the next day. Then on March 4, when Chrisler returned, Biesterfeld saw him viewing more child porn and called police.
“When police officers arrived they caught Chrisler viewing the child pornography, arrested him, and placed him in the Tulare County Jail, where he remains on $10,000 bail,” Liberty Counsel said. “Further investigation uncovered more child pornography in Chrisler’s home.”
But when police confiscated the computer from the library, Hill confronted them and said they had no business enforcing the child pornography law within the library.
“Even after the police captain explained that a federal law had been violated, making it a legal matter to be handled by police, Hill never offered to help,” Liberty Counsel said. “Instead, she demanded to know who made the report.”
Even though police investigators concealed Biesterfeld’s name, Hill claimed she knew who it was, and within 20 minutes the captain got a call from Biesterfeld saying Hill had called her and rebuked her. Two days later and without explanation Biesterfeld was fired.
The law firm’s letter demands Biesterfeld’s reinstatement and that the library change its policy to prevent the use of library property for illegal behavior and to establish a prompt reporting system. Mayor Ed Murray submitted a similar request to the county, officials said.
“Brenda Biesterfeld had a moral and a legal responsibility to report to police a library patron whom she observed viewing child pornography,” said Staver. “It is outrageous that the Lindsay Branch library fired Ms. Biesterfeld for reporting child pornography. Child Pornography is a despicable crime against children.”
Thomasson said the local battle, however, has national implications.
“We’re also defending children nationwide,” he said. “You see, the American Library Association, which is the controlling influence over libraries nationwide, views pornography and obscenity as ‘intellectual freedom.’ Because of this, many libraries in the U.S. allow child pornographers to use their Internet system undetected and unreported. Is it any wonder why child molestation has become so common?”
According to the association’s own web page regarding intellectual freedom and censorship, it is not the work of a library to protect children from material that is “legally obscene.” “Governmental institutions cannot be expected to usurp or interfere with parental obligations and responsibilities when it comes to deciding what a child may read or view,” the ALA says. It also defines “intellectual freedom” as the right to see material “without restriction.” Those who object to obscenity and its availability are “censors,” who “try to use the power of the state to impose their view of what is truthful and appropriate.” “Each of us has the right to read, view, listen to, and disseminate constitutionally protected ideas, even if a censor finds those ideas offensive,” the ALA states. (My note: as a libertarian Christian, I have some sympathies for this view, particularly because of my belief that one day the government will start hauling of Christians for possessing Bibles. But in this present time with its current policy, by preventing its employees from enforcing local, state, and federal laws, the American Library Association is contributing to precisely the sort of lawlessness and moral degradation in this society that will allow that awful time to take place.)
“Censors might sincerely believe that certain materials are so offensive, or present ideas that are so hateful and destructive to society, that they simply must not see the light of day. Others are worried that younger or weaker people will be badly influenced by bad ideas, and will do bad things as a result,” the ALA said.
That was the point Steve Baldwin, a former California lawmaker, was making when he previously penned a column citing a report from the Family Research Council.
“A 2000 report by the Family Research Council details how its researchers sent out surveys to every librarian in America asking questions about access to pornography. Despite efforts by the ALA to stop its members from responding, 462 librarians did respond. Their replies revealed 472 instances of children assessing pornography, 962 instances of adults accessing pornography, 106 instances of adults exposing children to pornography, five attempted child molestations, 144 instances of child porn being accessed and 25 instances of library staff being harassed by those viewing pornography. Over 2,062 total porn-related incidents were reported by a mere 4.6 percent of our nation’s librarians so one can assume the number of incidents is probably twenty times higher,” he reported.
He wrote that the “bias” of the ALA is obvious.
“When parent groups have offered to place books in libraries with conservative themes or are critical of the left, the ALA’s claims of being First Amendment guardians suddenly look fraudulent. When one parent tried to donate George Grant’s book, ‘Killer Angel,’ a critical biography of Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger, the library sent a letter stating that ‘the author’s political and social agenda…is not appropriate.’ Huh? A biographical book with zero profanity is banned but books that feature the ‘F’ word a hundred times are sought after with zeal. Go figure,” Baldwin wrote. (My note: so censorship is evil and must be prevented at all costs … unless we are doing it.)
Thomasson called on librarians across the country to report child pornography to law enforcement whenever it happens.
“The liberals who run the library system in America must stop violating the federal law because they regard child pornography as ‘free speech,'” he said. “All pornography is immoral, but possession of child pornography is a federal crime. No librarian should fear reporting child pornography to the police, but libraries that fail to report these crimes should be very afraid. Brenda Biesterfeld will get her job back, and more.”
Biesterfeld said she felt intimidated by Hill after the police investigation was launched. “She kind of threatened me,” Biesterfeld said. “She said I worked for the county, and when the county tells you to do something, you do what the county tells you. She said I had no loyalty to the county. (My note: Anyone remember 1984, people accused of being being “disloyal to the party?” Wait … this aside would be more suited for a post on the Republican or Democratic parties.) I told her I was a mother and a citizen also, and not just a county employee.”
The dismissal letter from Tulare County Librarian Brian Lewis said probationary employees can be fired if they don’t perform at a level “necessary for fully satisfactory performance.” But Thomasson reported a Lindsay city councilwoman said she’d been told just a few weeks earlier Biesterfeld was doing a great job. The city of Lindsay also has complained to the county about Hill’s “abrupt, demanding and demeaning” telephone call to police telling them to halt their pornography investigation.

(Look, I know that I have been hammering Barack HUSSEIN Obama a lot lately while neglecting John “I will attack Iran and keep us in Iraq for 100 years” McCain and Hillary “ice queen” Clinton. I am sorry, it is not an indication of political preference or lack thereof, but merely a matter of what I have happened to run across lately. Certainly plenty of evidence that John “I joined a Baptist church before the election to increase my vote share in South Carolina” McCain and Hillary “now that they aren’t voting for me I am free to let those inner city Negroes know how much I feared them growing up in suburban Chicago!” Clinton are against Jesus Christ is out there, and when I come across it I will relay it!)
Original link here. This is one of the rare times that I use discussion board material rather than news articles, web pages, or weblog entries, but it was too good to pass up!
http://campaignspot.nationalreview.com/post/?q=Y2IwYjAyNjhjY2RiOTdiOWMyYTJmMDMwYTg3ODMzMjc http://volokh.com/posts/1203747566.shtml http://volokh.com/archives/archive_2008_02_17-2008_02_23.shtml#1203389334 http://www.nytimes.com/2007/12/20/us/politics/20obama.html?_r=1&pagewanted=2&oref=slogin
Dave Kopel and David Bernstein note, Barack Obama proposed a few years ago a federal law against licensed firearms dealers operating within five miles of a school or park. As Kopel notes, “Every town I’ve ever visited which has more than a few dozen inhabitants has either a school or a park. Hypothesizing that the ban would apply to city parks (e.g., Central Park in New York City) but not to National Parks, pick a geographical region, and describe where a licensed firearms dealer could operate. Or pick a geographic point (e.g, Houston)and identify how far a peson would have to drive in order to get to the closest point where a gun store could legally be located. Extra credit for illustrative maps.”
As the commenters noted, this would effectively ban gun shops from most of the country, and just about every city.
However, Obama appears to find another kind of establishment to be perfectly fine operating near your children’s school:
Obama was also the sole present vote on a bill that easily passed the Senate that would require teaching respect for others in schools. He also voted present on a measure to prohibit sex-related shops from opening near schools or places of worship, which ultimately did not pass the Senate.
In both of those cases, his campaign said, he was trying to avoid mandates on local authorities.
The bill did not get the required three-fifths majority, so it did not in fact pass. (Mr. Obama voted “present” on the measure.)
Why on God’s green earth does Barack Obama object to mandates on local authorities for porn shops but not for gun stores? Or conversely, why does he feel it’s necessary to keep gun stores five miles from a school, but no limit on porn shops?
Not sure if this is the “si se puede” type of change we’re really looking for…

*Another one from Pastor Bill Keller. The fact that the truth is not being told about this woman, but instead they are peddling a story line to turn her into a sympathetic figure and Spitzer into her “male exploiter of a troubled young girl” is clear evidence that the media will not rest until it makes sexual immorality even more normalized and accepted in this country than it already is. The only thing more galling than how often the media lies is that they almost always get away with it because their lies are more preferable to the public than the truth. Portraying this woman as a victim actually justifies making her into a weeklong news story, putting her semi – topless on the cover of the world’s biggest pornographer and friend of conservatives and evangelicals Rupert Murdoch’s New York Post, and every other media outlet running image after image of her wearing as little as possible. Oh yes, let us not forget the radio stations that have been playing this aspiring singer’s music from her Myspace page. And while child molestation and other forms of child abuse are common, this case shows that all a person that needs or desires a public profile or image has to do is make an ambiguous charge that they were abused in some way, knowing full well that people will presume that it was domestic violence at the hands of your husband or boyfriend (regarding an adult woman) or sexual/physical abuse at the hands of your father or stepfather (regarding a juvenile). I still remember Halle Berry crying on Oprah Winfrey, after causing everyone to believe that David Justice had punched and hit her. But she could not SAY that Justice had hit her, because Justice would have then filed a multimillion dollar defamation and libel lawsuit against her. So her making an open – ended ambiguous allegation of abuse against him was just a PR tactic to force Justice to accept her financial demands in their divorce proceedings. After Justice returned fire by revealing how Halle Berry was doing what pretty much everyone in Hollywood does to get parts – making many of these actresses little different from Spitzer’s “Kristen”! – that was when Berry stopped going to Oprah, Ebony, Entertainment Tonight, etc. crying abuse and accepted Justice’s financial terms! Of course, the same media outlets that reported “Halle Berry cries on Oprah Winfrey when discussing how David Justice abused her!” never reported that the alleged abuse was a lie, just as they are now just fine with having people believe that “Kristen” became a prostitute because her father or stepfather molested her. With that said, merely because the media is willfully peddling lies IN THIS CASE does not mean that a high percentage of prostitutes, strippers, X – rated movie “actresses”, etc. were NOT molested or abused as children … in a shocking percentage of cases they were. That is all the more reason why Christians should leave the sex industry alone, and yes that includes most of the filth on TV and in the movies. Even the Chri$tian entertainment indu$try is more and more often relying on selling sex (or emulating the secular artists that sell sex) in their “work.” But the bottom line is that so long as the media are able to make it fit their agenda, they are willing to exploit lies. This girl wasn’t abused? So what! Let’s report it anyway because it allows us to portray her as a victim and increase public fascination with her, her body image, and the fantasies that it represents!
(I Corinthians 6:13,19, Proverbs 23:27-28)
A nation in spiritual freefall that glorifies and rewards whoredom! In the
wake of the sex scandal that broke last week causing New York Governor
Elliot Spitzer to resign, was the public response to the high priced
prostitute he had most recently been with. After the news media tracked her
down and exposed her identity to the world, instead of being ashamed, she
eagerly embraced and began to cash in on her new found celebrity. Saddest
of all, is a nation that has elevated her to this celebrity status and will
be responsible for her making millions of dollars for her choice to break
the law and sell her body.
She was originally known as “Kristen,” the 22-year-old $4,000 an hour
prostitute at the center of the sex scandal involving former New York
Governor Elliot Spitzer. Her real name is Ashley Youmans, though she
recently took the name Ashley Alexandra Dupre as she tried to launch a
career in music. The initial reports about Ashley seemed to tell the sad
and familiar story of a young girl from a broken home who was abused, ran
away at 17, ended up in New York to pursue a career in music, had no money,
and turned to selling her body to pay the bills. It almost makes you feel
sorry for her and at least understand how she ended up in the world of high
However, the real story of Ashley is much different. She is from a broken
home, but grew up with her mother and step father in an upscale New Jersey
community. There have been no reports of abuse of any kind, though she did
leave home at 17 after wrecking her Porsche and being told she wouldn’t get
another one. She left for North Carolina to live with her biological father, but never adjusted to the slower pace of life in North Carolina. So it was soon after her 18th birthday that Ashley left for New York City to pursue a career in music. (In other words, HER WHOLE STORY ABOUT BEING ABUSED AND RUNNING AWAY FROM HOME AT 17 IS A LIE!)
To pay the bills, she worked as a cocktail waitress in several upscale Manhattan nightclubs as a bottle girl. (MEANING THAT THIS GIRL HAD PLENTY OF MONEY AND HAD NO NEED OR REASON TO TURN TO PROSTITUTION!) These are the girls who work in theVIP areas of the club that cater to upscale, wealthy clientele who buy full
bottles of liquor and champagne and party all night. The clubs encourage their girls to be friendly to these upscale customers, even gong out on dates with them, to keep them coming back. Ashley quickly fell into the New York club scene, becoming a familiar figure despite the fact this party lifestyle was very expensive to maintain. Little did anyone know that she had entered the world of high dollar prostitution to pay for her lifestyle. (IN OTHER WORDS, TO PAY FOR NEW PORSCHES, NOT FOOD, CLOTHING, OR RENT!)
The story of Ashley is actually very scary, since she represents a new breed of young girls who have no fear, little morals, and are not guided by faith, but by their hedonistic appetite for sex, money, and all the finer things this world can offer. They are young, intelligent, have been blesed with great looks, and understand there are men with lots of money who will pay them thousands of dollars to have sex with them. These brazen and beautiful young girls have an appetite for uninhibited sex, and a lifestyle that requires lots of cash, selling themselves to rich men is the perfect answer.
I am very aware Ashley is not the world’s first prostitute and that it has been going on since the beginning of human history. A big reason I am dealing with this today is because as sad as this is, Ashley has now become a role model to millions of young girls. For girls who have grown up since birth being exposed to sex daily in every way imaginable, many becoming sexually active as early as 13 and 14, a huge percentage growing up in broken or blended homes, most having never even been to church or having any real exposure to faith, seeing daily how beauty is a commodity and an asset that can be bartered on the open market like any other commodity, all while living in a world that preaches (even in too many churches) that success is measured by your bank account and the toys you have, Ashley “Alexandra Dupre” Youmans has become the girl millions of girls want to be just like!
I can only challenge the young women reading this today that sin costs, and it is always a price higher than you ever thought or expected to pay. As glamorous as you may think Ashley’s life is, I can assure you it is anything but that. Doing the late night TV program for over 5 years, and due to the incredible number of adult businesses in Florida, I have dealt with hundreds of women over the years who were part of Ashley’s world. There is NOTHING glamorous about selling your body for money. NOTHING. It is a dark world
where EVERYONE loses, no matter how the media tries to sugar coat it.
It is a world of drug and alcohol addiction, of sexually transmitted disease, and physical danger. It is a world of broken and destroyed lives. Marriages are destroyed. Relationships with children are destroyed. Careers are destroyed. A persons ability to have a normal and Christ-centered sexual relationship is severely damaged. What money there is is usually lost or squandered. Many people commit illegal acts and go to jail. It robs a person of their self esteem. Whatever benefits anyone may appear to accrue, are all eventually wiped out at some point and a huge price is paid. God calls it sin. In the end, nobody wins and everyone loses, even Ashley.
I love you and care about you so much. I knew how sick this nation was, but even I was shocked that we are so spiritually bankrupt that we have taken a common prostitute and turned her into a national hero. Instead of condemning her sinful activities, we have glorified them and she will be making millions of dollars in the coming months. What a horrible message to send to young women, many of whom are simply looking for an excuse to destroy their lives in this way. At a time when they need to hear a message of hope through following God’s Word and that Jesus is their only answer, they hear the message loud and clear that their hope is in money and the material things of this world and their answer is to sell their bodies to
rich men to get it.
I pray today for young women not to be influenced by horrible choices Ashley has made in her life. I assure you that 20 years from now, she will be the first to tell you that it wasn’t worth it. Whatever fame she may acquire, whatever financial rewards she may experience, she has broken the law and despite being granted immunity to testify against the owners of the prostitution business, will have a criminal record. She has already greatly damaged her life at such a young age.
How is she ever supposed to have a normal, healthy relationship with a man if she does fall in love with someone and wants to get married? God’s wonderful gift of sex to be enjoyed by a man and women in the bonds of marriage will never be special for her. She has no conception or realistic understanding of money. This is all on top of the mental and emotional damage living such a lifestyle has done to her, even in a few short years. (Keller’s view of even the high end prostitution industry is in contrast with the view of feminists like Hillary Clinton, who calls them “sex workers”. Duke University, of lacrosse stripper fame, hosted a “sex workers symposium” on their campus recently, and the administration denied that they were being hypocritical for condemning the lacrosse athletes on one hand while approving this show on another.)
I pray today for Ashley and ask you to as well. I know deep down there is no real happiness, no real peace, no real joy. You can’t live your life in rebellion to God and attain those things, since they can’t be bought with a platinum card. You can only know true happiness, peace, and joy by being in a right relationship with Christ. I pray that through all of this, when the offers from scum like Larry Flynt and others stop pouring in, when her 15 minutes in the spotlight is over, that God will send the right person into
her life to talk to her about Christ, her soul, and the rest of her life.
I think back a few years ago to Donna Rice, the women who got caught up with Gary Hart and ended his political career. She has lived a quiet life mostly out of the spotlight and has done tremendous work in the area of keeping children safe from Internet predators. The key to her turning her life around was finding a real relationship with Christ. I pray that Ashley will turn to the Lord in her life as well, since He is the only true hope she has.
In His love and service,
Your friend and brother in Christ,

Posted by Job on March 12, 2008
(Job 24:16; Psalms 90:8; Ephesians 5:12)
“Thou hast set our iniquities before thee, our secret sins in the light of
thy countenance.” Psalms 90:8
New York Governor Elliot Spitzer has learned the hard Biblical lesson that
“The Lord bring to light the things hidden in the darkness” (1 Cor. 4:5).
It was Jesus who said, “There is nothing covered up that will not be
revealed, and hidden that will not be known. Accordingly, whatever you have
said in the dark shall be heard in the light, and what you have whispered in
the inner rooms shall be proclaimed upon the housetops” (Luke 12:2-3).
Anyone who thinks they can sin and keep their sin a secret is a fool,
because no matter how well you try to cover up your sin, GOD SEES
My heart is breaking this morning, because I know that many who read these
words this morning are hurting because of secret sins in your life. To
those in your life, everything looks wonderful. Many envy you. Most see you
as a person who is strong in the Lord and a pillar of faith. You are a
business person, a mom, dad, son, daughter, or pastor. You serve God in many
ways. You love God. You have put your faith in Christ. But there is sin in
your life. Secret sin. Sin nobody else sees. Sin that possibly has been part
of your life for many, many years. Sin that you have swept into a back
closet so nobody else would know about it. SIN THAT IS KEEPING YOU FROM THE
JOY, PEACE, AND ABUNDANCE THAT GOD HAS PROMISED FOR YOUR LIFE.
What is this sin? For each person that is different. For some it is alcohol.
The two beers each night, the scotch after work, have become so much a part
of your life that even though you are not classified as an alcoholic, you
know and God knows, that you HAVE to have it. THAT is a problem. Some of you
woke up this morning after not sleeping well because you are deeply involved
in gambling. Possibly you owe a local bookie for sports bets. Or maybe it is
those lottery tickets you HAVE to buy each day. Or maybe it is the local
casino down the road that you just can’t stay out of. Just as bad are those
who play the markets each day, not investing for the future, but looking for
the daily “hit.”
Others of you are dealing with sexual sins. Pornography is the easiest since
it can be just you and your movies, or magazines, or computer. Possibly you
have evolved past the solo stage and it involves other people. Still others
of you are secretly involved in drugs, legal and illegal. Actually, those
who use prescribed drugs to get that “high” outside of the medicinal
purposes it was designed for, is a MUCH larger problem than the more
publicized illegal drug problem. However, that is a multi-billion dollar a
year industry so SOMEBODY is buying all that cocaine, pot, heroin, meth,
ecstasy, and the rest. Still others of you are involved in the sin of greed.
Making money is more than just a way to support yourself and family, it is
an obsession. Money is your drug of choice. And of course, there are a
multitude of other sins people are secretly involved in.
You see my friend, the Bible says that the enemy comes to kill, steal, and
destroy. That verse is talking about believers. How does that happen? We
know that if we give our lives to Christ by faith we are saved. The enemy
can’t have our souls. But he can destroy us from being the productive
servants God has called us to be. The easiest way to do that is to get us
trapped in sin. Sin is like cancer. It starts out almost innocently. But it
grows and spreads. Very few who are involved in gambling, don’t drink. Very
few involved in drugs are not involved in sexual sins. Very few are tied to
just one secret sin.
As a matter of fact, once you let sin into your life, and practice sin, it
opens the door for other sins. You see, at some point it doesn’t matter any
longer. The great justifier satan says, “oh well, you already are this deep,
what harm could a little more sin do?” This my friend is the trap. It is
like quicksand. You get in, and get deeper, and deeper, and deeper, and
getting out becomes harder, and harder.
I realize that this word today has made some turn their computer off, some
have hit the delete button, and others are sitting right now in tears. You
see, the Holy Spirit is talking to YOU! God is speaking to you this moment
louder than He could if he were on a public address system at a stadium. He
is talking to YOU and saying READ THIS . . . THIS IS YOU!!! The Prodigal Son
came from a Godly, good home. I think when he went out, he was a good
person. I think like many brothers and sisters in Christ, he simply allowed
sin to enter into his life, and it ate him up to the point of near
destruction. But in the end, he knew when he hit the bottom, there was only
one place to go . . . HOME to his father!
Were there consequences for his sin? YES! His inheritance was gone, he
suffered the damage of the horrible experiences he encountered. He probably
had some health issues. But the point was, when he “came to himself” he went
home! MY WORD FOR YOU TODAY IS THAT GOD LOVES YOU. GOD CARES ABOUT YOU. NO
AMOUNT OF SIN CAN EVER STOP HIM FROM LOVING YOU. READ 1 JOHN 1:9. YOU DON’T
HAVE TO CONTINUE IN YOUR SIN, BUT YOU CAN STOP TODAY AND LET GOD HELP YOU.
THE CHOICE IS YOURS. AT THE END OF THE ROAD YOU ARE ON IS DESTRUCTION. GOD
IS THE FLAG MAN WITH THE ORANGE VEST SAYING . . . STOP NOW!!!!
I love you and care about you so much. I wish I was able to help make it all
okay by snapping my fingers. I would but that is not reality. Sin didn’t
start overnight, didn’t occur overnight, and the effects of sin won’t go
away overnight. As a matter of fact, they will be with you the rest of your
life. Sadly, that is one of sin’s by-products. But you can have victory over
sin today! Today can be the first day of victory over sin in your life. But
the first step MUST BE YOURS!!!
Here is some practical advice for you to follow if you really want victory.
You are in a battle. To win a battle, you must have a battle plan. Pray, sit
down and let God give you a plan that you can faithfully work each day.
Then, you need someone you can be accountable to on a daily basis. You can’t
win this fight alone, you need someone to stand with you, and to hold you
accountable. Lastly, you need the strength you can only get from God. That
comes from your daily relationship through prayer and the Word, from being
in church, from finding ways to serve the Lord. All of this working together
will help you overcome this battle and see victory.
Pray today for Gov. Spitzer, his wife and 3 children. Being the first
family of the state of New York means nothing today. These are 5 people who
are all hurting and struggling to deal with the consequences of the
Governor’s sin. I have no clue where this family is spiritually, but I pray
in the midst of this tragic time, they will each find a real relationship
with the Lord who will comfort them and guide them through these difficult
days. In turning to Christ, the Governor and his wife can find healing and
restoration to their marriage. Their children can find the strength to go
through such a public airing of their families problems. Pray that they
will each turn to Jesus in this time of need.
I will be praying for you today. There is victory in this life, victory for
Jesus. The biggest trap we as Christians must avoid are those secret sins
that will eat away at us from the inside. Destroy us from the inside. Make
us virtually useless in serving God. Never forget, our purpose in this life
is to serve and glorify Him with our lives. The easiest way for the enemy to
stop us from fulfilling that purpose is to get us entangled in sin in our
lives. We can live FREE from sin if we choose to. That is what God is
calling you to do today. Turn from your secret sin, and turn fully, 100% to
Again, know that I am praying for you. I can’t do this for you, YOU have to
do it. But know that I am here praying for you, standing with you for
victory over the sin in your life. God will strengthen you, embolden you,
and help you see victory. The first step, however, is yours. The prodigal
son had to go home before he could get victory. Bury your pride since God
already knows the full story, and go to Him today. My prayers are with you.
In His love and service,
Your friend and brother in Christ,
Bill Keller firstname.lastname@example.org

Urgent Policy Memo!!!
From: Scrofandus, Secretary to His Infernal Majesty
To: Project Administration Team, United States of America
Demons, Imps, Afreets, and Divels of PAT-USA:
His Infernal Majesty has noted your zeal, and your considerable success so far, in the de-Christianizing of the U.S.A. He has, however, instructed me to remind you that there is an
overarching strategic principle that must never be ignored, no matter how good the tactical situation looks in the short run. As our master delights in quoting the enemy�s Scripture for his own purposes, I refer you to the words of that porch-climber, Paul of Tarsus: �[F]or Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness�� (II Corinthians 11:14-15).
We didn�t get where we are today by presenting ourselves to the American people as leering hobgoblins. They only listen to us when we are perceived as ministers of righteousness! Let me call your attention to a single case as an example of tactical
heavy-handedness that could undo all we have achieved so far. The Human Rights Division of New Mexico is currently prosecuting a mom-and-pop photography business, Elane Photography, for declining to take pictures of a lesbian commitment ceremony. Mr. and Mrs. Huguenin, the owners and operators of this small business, will be, at the very least, financially ruined if the division rules against them.
It goes without saying that we here in Hell endorse and encourage lesbian
commitment ceremonies and every other aspect of the gay rights movement: after all, we created it. If it weren�t for our efforts, there would be no gay rights movement. But how have we made all our progress? By tirelessly presenting sodomites as a poor, oppressed, put-upon, loveable minority persecuted by an intolerant, tyrannical, religiously bigoted majority�that�s how! Now, thanks to your heavy-handed tactics, the shoe is on the other foot. Our people are now the intolerant, bullying, bigoted tyrants, coming down like
sixteen tons on this poor, defenseless married couple and their pitifully tiny business.
His Infernal Majesty is not amused.
You have morphed downtrodden gays into the steamroller of Big Sodomy, arrogantly crushing all the little people in its path. Instead of ministers of righteousness, our servants at the New Mexico Human Rights Division are unmasked as bureaucratic bullies. There is a time and a place for brute force; we can all agree to that. But in the long run, brute force must inevitably fail. The Third Reich was wonderful while it lasted, but where is it now? His
Infernal Majesty has asked me to remind you that we don�t march people into Hell at gunpoint. They must go there of their own free will, rejoicing, singing, patting themselves on the back because they think they are going to Heaven. There must be no doubt in their minds that when they serve us, they are doing the right thing.
But you have now made room for such a doubt. You know that mortals, and Americans more than most, always rally to the underdog. The gays�status as victims is their most precious resource, and you are squandering it! His Infernal Majesty strongly desires that the gay rights movement should succeed, and thus estrange America from The Enemy Above. He has asked me to remind you that if you cannot implement this program, Hell is full of devils who can and will. On my own, I take this opportunity to remind you that a few millennia in the Lake of Fire is a marvelous aid to concentration: but I must not be heavy-handed.Please try to stay with the program!

Here is another link: Christian Photographer Hauled before Commission for Refusing Same-Sex Job By John Jalsevac
New Mexico, January 30, 2008 (LifeSiteNews.com) – The case of a Christian photographer who refused to photograph a same-sex “commitment ceremony”, was heard before the New Mexico Human Rights Division on Monday.
A same-sex couple asked Elaine Huguenin, co-owner with her husband of Elane Photography, to photograph a “commitment ceremony” that the two women wanted to hold. Huguenin declined because her Christian beliefs are in conflict with the message communicated by the ceremony.
The same-sex couple filed a complaint with the New Mexico Human Rights Division, which is now trying Elane Photography under state antidiscrimination laws for sexual orientation discrimination.
The Alliance Defense fund (ADF), a legal alliance that is dedicated to defending and protecting religious freedom, sanctity of life, marriage, and family, is currently defending Elane Photography.
“On Monday we defended Elane Photography in court, saying basically that no person should be required to help others advance a message that they disagree with,” ADF Senior Counsel and Senior Vice-President of the Office of Strategic Initiatives, Jordan Lorence, told LifeSiteNews in an interview today. “That’s a basic First Amendment principle. The
government is punishing Elaine photography for refusing to take photos which obviously advance the messages sent by the same-sex ceremony – that marriage can be defined as two women or two men.”
In their complaint the homosexual couple has sought for an injunction against Elane Photography that will forbid them from ever again refusing to photograph a same-sex ceremony. They have also requested attorney’s fees.
“Depending on how far up the ladder this goes of appeal that could be a lot of money,” said Lorence. “Hundreds of thousands of dollars.” Lorence said that the ADF is framing its case in a similar fashion to the 1995 Supreme Court “Hurley” Case. “In the Boston St. Patrick’s
Day Parade case the US Supreme Court said that the State of Massachusetts could not punish a privately run parade because it refused to allow a homosexual advocacy group in to carry banners and signs in the parade. They said that would be compelled speech,
ordering the parade organizers to help promote a message they do not want to promote. To apply the discrimination law that way violates freedom of speech. We are making a similar kind of argument in this case.”
Lorence said that this current case is demonstrative of a “tremendous threat” facing those with traditional views on marriage and family.
“I think that this is a tremendous threat to First Amendment rights. Those who are advocating for same-sex marriage and for rights based upon sexual orientation keep arguing, ‘We are not going to apply these against churches. We are going to protect people’s right of conscience. We are all about diversity and pluralism.'”
But, in practice, says Lorence, “Business owners with traditional views or church owners with traditional definitions of marriage are now vulnerable for lawsuits under these nondiscrimination laws. There are 20 states that have these laws where they ban sexual orientation discrimination. Most of the major cities in the United States also have these kinds of ordinances. So these are a big threat, as the
federal government debates whether to make this a blanket nationwide law.
“We see that these [non-discrimination laws] are not rectifying some unjust discrimination, but being used to punish those who speak out in favor of traditional marriage and sexual restraint,” he concluded.
Lorence said that the ADF is “cautiously optimistic that the commission will do the right thing.” If the New Mexico Commission, however, decides against Elane Photography, Lorence said that the ADF would appeal the decision all the way up to the US Supreme Court if necessary.
