Hope for Every Woman ^ | December 22, 2010 | Mike Adams

Posted on 12/22/2010 1:02:53 PM PST by Kaslin

Last Saturday night, just as I was leaving the house to dine with a couple of friends, I received an interesting phone call from California. It was Crissy Moran, a lovely girl who, in 2006, gave her life back to Jesus Christ. Before that, she was in the Adult Entertainment Industry. Those who are interested can read her testimony online or listen to her interview on the Drew Marshall Show by clicking on this link.

How many more times do we need to hear such stories before we realize that fathers are indispensible in the lives of young women? One does not have to look at the lives of porn stars to see the common denominator. The same problem is invariably present in the lives of strippers and women who, regardless of profession, are highly promiscuous. That common problem is a father who simply was not there for his daughter when she needed him most.

In the case of Crissy Moran, we hear testimony about a father who made serious mistakes and helped inject confusion into the life of a girl just as she was becoming a woman. But sometimes those mistakes are not so clear or so obvious. Many men simply emotionally detach from their daughters around the time they develop into young women. They fear that any display of touching or affection may seem inappropriate after she begins to develop physically. And that is devastating to them. Men should never stop hugging their daughters any more than they should stop loving them.

Added to the problems men bring upon themselves is a court-backed war on fathers. Men who would like to spend time with their daughters and want to be there for them are often left for no good reason. No fault divorce laws make divorce easy. But when it comes to custody issues men are always presumed to be at fault. The “no fault” part only applies to the woman.

The increasing alienation of daughters from their fathers comes at a singularly inopportune time in American history. Ever since Al Gore invented the internet it has become easier for young girls to look for love in all the wrong places. The threats come not just from individual predators but also from a well-organized adult entertainment industry. It is an Evil Empire that attracts young women with the prospect of attention and the allure of fast easy money. But the money never ends up being easy in the end.

It took more than just a series of bad men to make the life of Crissy Moran spiral out of control. It took some very bad decisions on her behalf. But once things began to get exponentially worse for her, there was only one Way for her to be saved.

Just two days after she told God she hated Him – and long after she decided she wanted to kill herself – the Lord put a good man in her life. She met him on the set of a TV show he and her (now former) boyfriend were filming. Later, when they were at a bar, this good man told her he knew that she made adult films for a living. He also talked with her about Hope. Before the end of the evening, he took her outside to pray with her. She then decided to come back to the Lord. And, of course, she knew she had to leave the industry.

Crissy is a sweet soul – she sounded like a shy little girl when she called me on the phone. And, of course, she has been dealing with the backlash of leaving the industry. She now works with a group called Treasures and helps hand out Bibles to girls currently in the industry.

Her website, which was started around 2000, was making tens of thousands of dollars a month. When she left that life to start a new one in 2006, she cut all ties - that includes not taking any money from her website. At its peak, her portion of the sales was around $13,000 per month.

Unfortunately, the site has continued to run without her as she had signed a contract through 2009. Even more unfortunately, the site is still up and Crissy, being a Christian, does not want to give anyone the wrong idea that she is still supporting this activity. Lawyers have written Cease and Desist letters before but did not follow up and the site continues to run and make money without her permission.

I sit here at my computer writing this column on Crissy Moran’s 35th birthday. There are two things I wish for her on this special day. The first is that some concerned Christian will step up and take her case until the aforementioned site is shut down.

My second wish is that men everywhere will pledge this day to give up pornography and rededicate their time and energy to their daughters. Of course, not all men who watch pornography have daughters. But every woman they watch has a Father who is watching them.

Leftists and Libertarians think pornography is just fine, a right, "freedom", and so on. This is a beautiful story. Please read it.

Definately NOT Guilty

Well "Duh!" She accepted Jesus into her heart and she's been washed in the blood of The Lamb.

That is what you meant, right?

“She accepted Jesus into her heart and she’s been washed in the blood of The Lamb.”

In that case she is indeed not guilty. Her sins are under the blood and nobody should mess with her about them. She is justified with God and is His forever.

The Free Republic “Guilty/Not Guilty” game can get quite tiring so I decided to be a bit of a smart aleck.

This young lady is, indeed, Not Guilty before God. I hope she meets someone worthy of her who can get beyond her past and they build a life together.

It can be taken both ways and is accurate in both contexts.

There is a whole pile of evidence that children suffer their whole lives if the father is absent without good reason, the exception being death. Mothers and fathers both play a very critical role in developing their children's' lives.

I could give many personal examples, but the best is a woman I went out with for a long time. I will call her Jane. Jane's father was absent through most of her life. She was intelligent, cute and really wanted to be good and live the American dream. But she could not trust me, and every act required that she plan that I would break her trust. She was not a bad person, but she could not accept that I wanted to be with her forever.

She did nor like to show affection in public to the degree that she was a cold fish around others. However, when we were by ourselves, she knew no boundaries. Which sounds great until I recognized that she did not how to be affectionately stable. Emotionally, she was crippled.

We discussed her problems with trust and appropriate show of effection numerous times. Intellectually, she knew what was correct, but she could not get past her past. I finally broke it off, because I realized that every thing that I did would be considered wrong until proven otherwise. Even with my open discussion of cause and effect, she evaluated everything that I did as being an affirmation that at sometime I would abandon her. Both of us were in a "lose lose" situation.

Fini ...

Thanks for your post ... like Mike Adam's article, very enlightening ..

Many men have had the same type of experience as you did with "Jane" ... Shakespeare would call it a tragedy ... as I certainly do ...

Actually, from my dating experiences (10 years as a 55 year old man now) I've come to learn that many (otherwise outwardly) successful women are emotionally crippled either by fathers that emotionally abandoned them ... or sexual assualt ...

As Mike Adams pointed-out in his article, there is "only" One Source of Healing for these women ...

It's Jesus Christ ... and the Power of His Ressurrection ...

Not a "plastic" religious Easter-and-Christmas Jesus on the Car Dashboard ...

Rather ... the ETERNAL CHRIST who forgave the two women in adultery ... raised Lazarous and a little girl from the DEAD ...

The same "I AM" that opened the Salvation of the Red Sea for Israel in the face of Pharoh's murderous blood-thirsty army ...

The same CHRIST, Prince of Peace ... that commanded that a "GREAT PEACE" immediately stop the wind and waves when His disciples were caught in the hurricane on Lake Galilee ...

That's Christ - My King

Fini ... please know that I'm not trying to be "preachy" here, either to you, or any other man (in our similar romantic circumstances)...

I (indeed) appreciate and know the "exact" nature of the pain that you've suffered ... and that I believe thousands of other men suffer (unknowingly) ...

As asked in the Lord of The Rings movie ... by King Theodorin ...

"What Can Men Do Against Such Evil ?"

Well ... THIS is what I say ... and I know that my "Captain and my King" ... Jesus Christ ... AGREES ...

Like ALL great military conquerers ... Christ KNOWS the battlefield ...

Christ tells us of the battlefield ...

Ephesians 6:12 ... For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.

Christ has a special calling for His Men ... that "We might be remembered as Men" (Gladiator) ... to be the Spiritual Warriors cut from the same divine cloth as King David who cut-down the giant Goliath while David was still a young man ...

Christ EARNESTLY wants His Men to pray for the Power of His Ressurection to destroy the emotional and spritual prisons that our wives (and even fiances) are desperately trapped in ...

Would you race back a "second time" into a burning building to rescue your wife ?

Would you have done that for "Jane" ? Would I do that for the Woman that I love ?

Absolutely !!!

I believe that you WOULD ... just as the (good) man in Mike Adam's story (above) "fought the good fight" to emotionally and spiritually rescue Chrissy ...

These men ... are included in The Lord's "Mighty Men of Valour" ... whose courage, faith ... and Victory in The Lord's Name ... are our examples from the Scriptures ...

This is a "tough" thing to say tonight as I write this ... but I write with passion, conviction ... love and concern ... for the (beautiful yet damaged) woman that I love ... and for the thousands of "Finis and Janes" out there ... who might read this ...

But ... the same Lord God ... who set the Captives free from Hell itself ...

Can He not set free (emotionally and spiritually) these Women that we Men love ?

Is ANYTHING too hard for our God ? Absolutely NOT !!!!!

The Lord is "NOW" calling His Men ... ... to fast and pray ... interceed via the Blood of Christ Jesus ... for these Women who Christ considers His precious daughters ...

General George Patton ... in his famous (movie) speech ... challenged his soldiers ...

"The NAZIs are the ENEMY ... Wade into them, Shoot them in the Belly" ..."

You Christian Men ... Hasn't Christ called you to do the same for Your Wives and Spouses ?

Hasn't Christ given you the spiritual weapons to bring the emotional-spiritual HEALING that your beloved wife-fiance DESPERATELY needs ?

So ... as it says in Hebrews 12:1 ...

Heb 12:1 Therefore we also, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us,

And I would add ... "Fight that Spiritual Battle for Your Wife-Fiance's emotional-spiritual healing" that Christ has NOW set before you ...

Free Republic colleagues, I've been here since 1996 and never felt inclined to write anything like I've done tonight (at 1:30 AM no less) ...

I know that there are MANY Godly Men who need (like myself) to boldly enter the emotional-spiritual battle to resuce our beautiful wives and fiances ...

Let us now cross the battle's "line of departure" with the Power of Christ's Name ... claiming in Victory the Glory of His Resurrection ...

Your Great Name

Your post made my day.

As a footnote, many of these fathers are not bad men, just ill-skilled.

Sinners, as are we all.

Needing the grace of the Savior.
