03-14-2014 Scare Tactic?

June 16th, 2014 by

Dear Member of New Covenant,

 

SCARE TACTIC?

If your child clicks on KIK.com and enters a teen girl’s profile she will be solicited for sex within 30 minutes. Predators also meet at one place and suggest a move for further conversation to another.

  • A lot of children now have “Shadow Accounts” on Facebook, and MySpace– do you know where to find them?
  • The average age for first sexual experience is now between 3rd and 4th grades.
  • The number presented by Detective Padgett of young children who are exposed to hard-core pornography was astronomical, and the number that tried out what they saw was even more frightening.
  •  And what about “Porn Dads” – soccer dads by day and porn addicts by night. What’s wrong with this anyway?

I didn’t know this. Did you?

After learning this Fr. Christopher was heard to say that he was cutting off the electricity to his house to protect his family.

When I returned from Africa Sunday night I heard this from my children, who heard it Sunday night at our church. We are inviting Detective Padgett to return and speak with our youth.

As well, we will have another time to meet and talk about ways to protect our families, without cutting off electricity, on the 30th from 6 to 8 p.m. Not to be missed.

Scare tactic? Or is it just plain scary? Is there an option?

Blessings to you all,

Carl+

About this author:

Carl Buffington

Carl Buffington, Rector My ministry at New Covenant began in 1993. Barbara, my wife, and our 3 children moved here from Evergreen, CO, high and dry to low and wet, quite a change. I was brought up in the northeast, a suburb of New York, and Barbara grew up in a suburb of Philadelphia. We met while I was attending The Philadelphia Divinity School in West Philadelphia where I received an M.Div. degree in 1972, and I was ordained a deacon and priest in the same year. I went to seminary directly from college. I earned an A.B. degree from the College of William and Mary in Williamsburg, VA. For 5 years of my ministry I was a traveling evangelist, sharing the story of our Lord and his presence and power in a different church every weekend. What I have always loved about New Covenant is the blending of the charismatic, the evangelical, and the sacramental aspects of the Faith. And what still gets me up in the morning is seeing people change, seeing people encounter the living Lord. I just love to see hearts changed by the Holy Spirit. Education: BA from the College of William & Mary 1969 MA in Divinity from the Philadelphia Divinity School 1972 Ordination: Ordained in the Diocese of CT – Deacon and Priest 1972 Ordained and Consecrated a Bishop, Emissary to Boga Diocese, Democratic Republic of the Congo - 2015
