This was shared with me via email awhile ago. I thought it might be good to share it here with some of you who may have young ones on the computer as I do. This warning from this young person is a good reminder that we are our childrens covering and as the body need to be there for one another as well.
from a young one in some small town in the US, after what (he or she) called a disgusting, foolish, naive brief encounter with Hell on the internet ;(
"I know that many of you, like me, have been raised within the protective walls of God's Glorious Kingdom of Love and Truth. I also know that you, like i did, really have no idea of the truly perverse and filthy world that lurks outside of God's ways. and i wish i could describe to you the full nature of my discovery of the nauseating, repugnant nature of the world and what is accepted as "common" and "normal". I thought i knew my fair share of the world, but truly, i had no idea. And so i am begging, pleading with you, all of you, please learn from my mistake: PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE do not EVER be tempted, as i was, to dabble on the unfiltered internet, whether at the library or on any of the blackberry or other internet-capable devices. I know that many warnings have been in front of all Christians about this, and though i thought i understood them, obviously, i didn't take them seriously. It's too late for me to go back and change what i've done, but it's not too late for you to never even go there. the ease with which i was able to violate my conscience and Jesus' blood frankly terrifies me, and i hope that it never happens to you. no matter what you think you know, or what you think you can handle, or whether or not you think it's as bad out there as everybody says it is, i guarantee you, the filth and vileness of what is going on right now in "Sodom" and "Laodicea" outside of God's covering and His people is frankly beyond my power to describe, and is beyond your power to imagine. It will eat you up and spit you out, and your soul will be the price you pay. Don't play with Hell. It isn't worth it."
