>Loser’s Limp

>So a couple days ago Lindsay Lohans father says (after her court appearance during which the judge said if she accepted the D.A.’s plea bargain, or pled guilty, she’d go to jail),”I don’t see Lindsay as a criminal. This is all a result of her addiction.”


So whatever “this is all” means is okay since it is a result of her addiction?


And typical of a fallen society.

Not harping on Lohan…just continually sick of excuses. When I was entering Oregon State Prison the reception committee basically said my criminal career was a result of my experiences in Vietnam.

Translated: “it’s not my fault.”

Well, yeah, stuff contributes to our decisions; but we are responsible for the decisions.

And if we step into the quicksand of addictions, we are responsible for actions made after that point also.

I’m grateful that my arrest and incarceration resulted in me reading the gospel for the first time…and eventually to taking responsibility/ownership of my sin, turning from sin, and turning in repentance to Christ.

And I pray Miss Lohan experiences deliverance…not from criminal charges, but from God’s indictment…

Jesus invaded my life shortly after my arrest at age 26. I spent the first few years of my new life incarcerated. Went to Bible school after parole; have served with Kansas City Youth For Christ, Headwaters Christian Youth (Rhinelander, Wi), Family Life Ministries (Bath, NY), and now with Midland Ministries (Saint Joseph, Mo). Married with four children, work with youth, adults, inmates. Heavily involved in Bible quizzing for four decades. Narrow minded about Jesus and the gospel; fairly open minded about most other things. Speak in churches, camps (both teen and family), civic groups, public schools, Christian schools and colleges...amazed I get to do what I get to do....favorite verse Romans 15.13 "May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing so that you, by the power of the Holy Spirit, may overflow with hope."
