A Christian tale of hope & love.

To follow is an incredible story being sent out across the Internet in order to spread the news of God's love, mercy and magic! Please, I beg you to read it and then, reconsider how you look at dark alleyways when God is by your side. It begins with a young college girl "Diane" and her walk home in the night, alone... or was she? Fact? Or fiction? You decide!


Diane, a young university student, was home for the summer. She had gone to visit some friends one evening and time passed quickly as each shared their various experiences of the past year.

She ended up staying longer than planned, and had to walk home alone. She wasn't afraid because it was a small town and she lived only a few blocks away. As she walked along under the tall elm trees, Diane asked God to keep her safe from harm and danger.

When she reached the alley, which was a short cut to her house, she decided to take it. However, halfway down the alley she noticed a man standing at the end as though he were waiting for her. She became uneasy and began to pray, asking for God's protection. Instantly a comforting feeling of quietness and security wrapped around her, she felt as though someone was walking with her.

When she reached the end of the alley, she walked right past the man and arrived home safely.

The following day, she read in the newspaper that a young girl had been raped in the same alley just twenty minutes after she had been there.

Feeling overwhelmed by this tragedy and the fact that it could have been her, she began to weep. Thanking the Lord for her safety and to help this young woman, she decided to go to the police station. She felt she could recognize the man, so she told them her story.

The police asked her if she would be willing to look at a lineup to see if she could identify him. She agreed and immediately pointed out the man she had seen in the alley the night before. When the man was told he had been identified, he immediately broke down and confessed.

The officer thanked Diane for her bravery and asked if there was anything they could do for her. She asked if they would ask the man one question. Diane was curious as to why he had not attacked her

When the policeman asked him, he answered, "Because she wasn't alone. She had two tall men walking on either side of her."

Moral of the story.. Don't underestimate the power of Prayer! Gives ya goose bumps doesn't it!

This is to all of you who mean something to me, I pray for your happiness.

“Im pretty sure that you have heard about JESUS CHRIST”

What is possibly running through your mind having a heartless website like that?

Im pretty sure that you have heard about JESUS CHRIST and what he has done for all of us in this dreadful world that we live in..... It is not a funny issue about Jesus dying for all people even YOU on the cross for yours, mine and everyones sins he carried the sins of the world on his shoulders so that you can have a choose in a manner how you would like to live your life even your family girlfrend /boyfriend and friends cant compete with his love for you can you honestly say that you love someone so much to get crucified on a cross and beaten to almost death were flesh is ripping off and your just wanting to hurry up and die but the worse has not happen yet I mean really think about it use your imagination you know you have one and yet they put a crown of thorns on you after getting whipped by a whip that has glass and any pointed objects that it can hold just slapping your body and ripping the flesh off just so that your love one can live and everyone that you love is watching you and mocking you and laughing at you and spitting in your face...I know that i am not that brave and next you have to carry your own cross while you are lifeless and are suffering and gasping for air that is very hard to imagine but it is true Jesus went through this and when he was hung on the cross the same people that he loves hammered stakes into his hands and feet and he was in so much pain but he was strong for mankind and he knew that he had to go through the toughest punishment anyone had ever experiance just so we can be able to live Can you possibly find it in your heart to let him in because if you dont then he suffered all the pain for you for nothing just think about it would you do this for someone you love alot of us would take a bullet but wouldnt dream of being in Jesus' place...... I really hope you think about what i am saying because this is not like im trying to cram anything down your throat im just trying to have you understand please email me back thank you and remember God does love you and will never forsake you because he knows how that feels and why would he do that to us?


Yeah, I also heard they constructed a machine gun that shot screwdrivers and they shot Him in the head with it for like 30 minutes!

If what you just wrote (without using one period or sentence break) isn't "cramming down people's throats", then I don't know what is.

Sure, it was a lovely gesture on His part (dying for me and all), but David Koresh made all of the same claims then he got burned alive for all of my sins too. Do I have to believe in him as well simply because he suffered lots too?

I know this is crazy of me, but I like to examine claims like that close up before I dive head first into worshipping the fellas. And if the claims start contradicting scientific fact and common sense, I start suspecting fibs. Then, after I do that and further claims are made that the fellow raised from the dead, said good-byes to his Pallbearers, and floated up into the clouds, I glare that teller of long tales with a sturgeon wince, pierce my lips and hiss: "You gotta sssscrew looossssse ssssirrrrr!"

And then I'd proceed on my merry way leaving them to drown in the foam that gurgles from their stir crazy throats.

Know wha' im sayin'?

“...u relized soemthing christian have a frim law to belive, allthough many chose not to follow, your inspiring a generation, which i really don't approve, i would like to debate, if your willing...”

hey, i was recomended by a friend to your site, and i say its interesting. I love how you question, but with rude behavior how are you to attract new ones, u relized soemthing christian have a frim law to belive, allthough many chose not to follow, your inspiring a generation, which i really don't approve, i would like to debate, if your willing, i have a aim\aol screenname, many people say they pray for you, but that makes u feel the same, they just done that alot, and they think it means alot, deep in your soul, u made everything comedic, i truly belive in a god, since i studied amino acids, and different variation, read the case for faith, its in your brain, your attached to things, i am to, we all are, but i don't thinking picking on the unfaithfull ones will help them at all, alltho u have a freeedom, i disaporove of what u do, but i'll always defend your right, and i think theis gives us a bad message, too many people are influence with saracams in these days, anyhow, if u chose to reply/talk back, thanks


After reading your email, I've concluded that I have a very strong opinion which I feel a need to share with you.

Mike, when I read your email and saw the manner in which you express yourself, and the tiny glimpse you gave me into beliefs, I cannot fathom a suffering more great than to be roped into an aim/aol chat debate with someone such as yourself.

You need to lay off that comma key and rediscover the magic of the period and the paragraph. The time you spent studying amino acids should have been spent studying the English language. Only then will you be able to tempt others into chatting with you on the Internet.


“Hello, I have just one question. Why did you create that website?”

Hello, I have just one question. Why did you create that website? It's disrespectful to the Christian religion and is disrespectful to the Christ. He suffered for everyone and he was thinking about everyone. So could you just answer that one question?

Devin Barnes

Yes, but just that one question.
I made the site for profit. I am very religious, but there's just too much money to be made off of this. But don't worry, I believe all the same stuff you do, so I'll be going to heaven and everything.

Thank you for the email.

PS. Oh! Can we just keep this between you and me? There are some people who'd really get angry if they knew about this.

“I don't want to correspond with you.”

I don't want to correspond with you. I just want you to know how appalled I am at this site. Bob, you are tampering with God. This site is sacriligous. I won't quote you verses to prove my point, but deep within you, you know this is wrong.

Rew Parker

I don't want to correspond with you either but I will tell you that, secretly, yes, I know this is wrong. I don't think you understand how much money is involved here though. I'm talkin' LOTS! Like upwards of several-thousand-dollars "LOTS".

I've done a lot of soul searching and I know that God still loves me no matter what I do, and that's good enough for me... at least for now. When I clear my first $10,000 then I'll start with the take-backs and apologies.

Email me back.
