Out of the Darkness
A true life story of Shelley Lubben and her journey from a life in the pornography industry to a life in Christ. Commentary from Dr. Judith Reisman and Dr. Richard Fitzgibbons
Here is a riveting documentary which clearly demonstrates the life changing power of Christ and God’s word. Shelley Lubben forgives her parents but states she was ignored as a child. When she was eighteen years old she grew tired of being ignored and rebelled. The result was being forced to leave home by her father. She was sitting on a curb lonely, hungry and crushed in spirit, when a man came by who spoke with her. He let her know that a man would be willing to pay $35 to have sex with her and thus she soon found herself living as a prostitute. After several years of that lifestyle she wound up in the porn industry, making movies and bringing in pretty good money. There was one problem. She felt shame and deep inside she had a hunger for a life with a deeper meaning.
This fascinating documentary features commentary from Dr. Judith Reisman, who candidly points out the problems with the famous Mr. Kinsey’s book on sexuality. And also Dr. Richard Fitzgibbons who shows that only through God’s word and moral living can one find true and lasting fulfillment. Also featured is a gentleman who talks about the first time he saw a porn magazine at the local store and how later he became addicted to internet porn but how he is free today and living a Christian life with a loyal wife.
There are a few mentions of Hugh Hefner and how Kinsey influenced him. This movie is definitely recommended for those twelve and above and gladly award it our Dove Seal. This one clearly shows that there is hope for those who are bound by porn or in the porn industry. Some fifty people, men and women, have left the porn industry since January 2008 due to Shelley’s Pink Cross Foundation. Although this film is candid it is not graphic or shocking in any way. It does mention a ten year old girl who was raped by a teen boy. Interestingly, Shelley Lubben had been paid $35 for her first act of prostitution. When she married a Christian man years later, her marriage license cost $35. She says to her it was a statement of a new life. The hope this DVD gives is fantastic.
