Christian Virgin to Auction Off Virginity at Moonlite Bunny Ranch!

Hello World,

This story saddens me, but as a journalist, I don’t create news…but I do share it. But as a Christian journalist, one of my goals is to share news not just for the sake of sharing it, but hopefully we can be empowered by it…or at least pray for others who need to be empowered. When I came across this story about 23-year-old Bailey Gibson, I knew I needed to share it. Despite the fact that she grew up in a Christian household and was saving herself her marriage, she has given up her Christian beliefs including fleeing fornication it seems, according to the

According to the publication, Gibson was once seeing  a “Christian boy who agreed with her decision to wait until marriage before they started a sexual relationship.  She soon discovered that he had cheated on her by sleeping with his ex on Valentine’s Day, but resolved to stay with him an enter couple’s therapy instead. During the therapy he revealed he had cheated on her a second time, this time on the first date with another girl. ‘After grieving for a while, I came to the conclusion that waiting until marriage to lose my virginity was the wrong decision, because my ex-boyfriend wasn’t worth waiting for,’ she added.”

From, Gibson said, “I’m originally from the suburbs of Sacramento, California, where I was brought up in a very strict, religious household. I attended an all-girls Christian boarding school in my teens, where I had absolutely no contact whatsoever with boys. I currently reside in Wisconsin where I worked as a property manager until I lost my job. The financial stress, and my desire to rebel, led me to the Bunny Ranch and my decision to lose my virginity to a generous stranger.”

I won’t get into the “Flee Fornication” verse because that is the obvious one to reference, but other verses come to mind as I reflect on this misguided woman’s decision. Your body is your temple. See below..

If anyone destroys God’s temple, God will destroy that person; for God’s temple is sacred, and you together are that temple. Do not deceive yourselves. If any of you think you are wise by the standards of this age, you should become “fools” so that you may become wise.  1 Corinthians 3:17-18 New International Version (NIV)

What these verses say to me is that Miss Gibson thinks it’s cool and or cute to sell her body now because the cultural norms make you think that it’s cool or cute, but she gon learn…Many of us become fools so that we can be wise…But at this stage in life, I would rather become wise from other people’s foolish mistakes….What say you? At any rate, she needs prayer….

Check Out My Article in Christianity Today!!!

Hello World,

My father introduced me to Christianity Today magazine as a child, and I became an avid reader because of the breadth of topics covered in its pages! That’s why I’m excited about my article being among its pages in the January/February issue of the publication. Check out it below:

A Member of the ‘Little Rock Nine’ Counts Her Blessings, One by One

“First appeared in the January/February issue of Christianity Today”

Melba Beals describes how faith helped her flourish amid many trials.

Melba Pattillo Beals received a Congressional Gold Medal for her part in the Little Rock Nine, the group of African American students who brought about the 1957 integration of Central High School in Little Rock, Arkansas—an experience recounted in her first memoir, Warriors Don’t Cry. She would go on to work in newspaper and television journalism, earn a doctorate in international multicultural education, and teach journalism at the college level. In her latest book, I Will Not Fear: My Story of a Lifetime of Building Faith under Fire, Beals credits God for guiding her through trying experiences in Arkansas and afterward. Atlanta-based journalist and blogger Jacqueline J. Holness spoke with Beals about the sustaining power of faith.

From the outset of I Will Not Fear, it’s clear that your grandmother, India Annette Payton, provided a strong spiritual foundation. How did her example encourage you as you endured angry white mobs and disapproval from black students at your old high school?

My grandmother always said, “Look, God is right there with you all the time.” To guide you in your thought, to guide you in your feeling, to guide you away from fearing. You have to be aware that you are filled with the Spirit of the Lord, and that will guide what you do. She would say, “God is as close as your skin. He is right there, every moment. So when you feel that something is going wrong, know that God is with you and it will be okay. You will learn a lesson. You will survive.”
