Greetings and Salutations,
Call me Samuel, like in the Bible. Samuel was a Prophet and bearer of bad news to Eli (1 Samuel 3:11-21) and Saul (1 Samuel 15). The second book of Samuel had Nathan deliver the bad news to David (2 Samuel 12:11). Consider me your Samuel. If you are here, on this website, researching this topic then you have probably found your self in the same situation as myself (with the state of Washington). Whether it be you (violating your restrictions), a family member, or a relative, you are in desperate need of help.
This site is a resource for those whom have been captured by these internet sex sting operations (most likely child but could be adult/prostitution related). The best situation of all is to avoid getting caught up in a sting of any kind. But if it is too late then you have to deal with the severe consequences, public humiliation, and all the other distress the situation will bring your family.
It should be noted that I DO NOT condone these activities. What I do know is that within the broad reach of the internet the sting operation will catch some offenders as well as some non-offenders. A lot of good people are being locked away with the bad. This site for those good people who made a mistake. Whom need to repent (1 John 1:9), learn from this unfortunate experience, and move on; hopefully becoming a better person in the process.
Men are so simple of mind, and so much dominated by their immediate needs, that a deceitful man will always find plenty who are ready to be deceived. – Niccolo Machiavelli
This site is about information. Information to see what is going on (other stings occurring, acquittals, etc.) and information you can hopefully use to defend yourself, friend or family member. In these trying times it is good to seek refuge in the Bible and God’s word to help you overcome. Check out Psalm 143 which is a Cry for Help. Rick Warren’s Purpose Driven Life book along with the Audio sermons (listen to at least Day 1 and Day 3) provides a lot of inspiration and may also help you in overcoming the difficulties that lie ahead. Finally, check out Hebrews 12 to learn that God will discipline his children. It won’t be a pleasant journey; hang tough, stay strong.
