Would You Rather Prank Call, Or Witness To A Porn Star?

Could I speak to Seymour Butts? Is your refrigerator running? Could you please have Ben Dover paged? Have you ever fallen for a prank phone call or practical joke? I know I have! Someone calls, and asks you to page some outlandish name, and you fall for it. Next thing you know, everyone’s laughing either at you ,to your face, or behind your back. Either way, you’re the butt of a joke!
That’s kind of how satan works isn’t it? He puts things in our lives and makes them seem legitimate. We think about it for a minute, then second guess ourselves, then BAM! You’re the butt of the devil’s joke, and he’s laughing at you.
If you find yourself in a situation that just doesn’t seem quite right to you, don’t make the devil repeat himself! Take a second to pray and ask God to help you. 1 Corinthians 10:13 says, You are tempted in the same way all other human beings are. God is faithful. He will not let you be tempted any more than you can take. But when you are tempted, God will give you a way out so that you can stand up under it.
Don’t be fodder for satan to make fun of! God always provides a way out when we’re tempted! And it’s probably not a great idea to make prank phone calls either. Just so you know.

Recently, someone informed me that Semour Butts (the name in the above blog) just happened to be a porn star, or a porn director, or something in the porn industry. Who knew?! Here I am trying to bring people to, or closer to Jesus, and maybe get a chuckle or two, and I inadvertently advocated porn?!? That was totally NOT my intention, however, since I’ve made the blunder; I may as well use it!
We, as Christians have a tendency to shy away from “bad” people. People we think might tarnish our reputations, such as maybe, porn stars, drug dealers, or lawyers and politicians :). That’s exactly the opposite of how Jesus lived. He ate with, and often hung out with a rough bunch. Tax collectors even!! That’s in Matthew chapter 9, go read it.
I’m certainly not saying to watch porn, but let’s not look down our noses at people who don’t live up to our “standards”. Let’s not avoid people we might think are yucky. God takes yucky and turns it into beautiful!
So today, if you happen to encounter a porn star, love on them! Just use Jesus’s definition of love and not theirs!

  1. Relax. Semour Butts, the porn star, stole his name from Seymour Butz the author. Seymour’s most famous books are the crime thriller, “Under the Bleachers”, his highly acclaimed medical history, “The View Point of Proctology” and his incredibly hilarious autobiography, “My Life As An Ashtray”.
