Update: Kelly Orr’s Tuition Costs have been met!

Thank you to everyone for responding so quickly and generously. It only took a few days to receive enough to completely cover Kelly’s required studies to obtain her state licensing as a therapist/counselor.

Now all that is left is for Kelly to do the really hard work at her university. As we said earlier, she has already been accepted into the program which will take one school year to complete over and above the masters degree she already holds.

May the Lord bless and use Kelly in a great way in days to come. I am sure she will be a tremendous new resource and help to victims and survivors of this evil of abuse.

The Haughty Evil of the Wicked and Their Just End

There are those who are clean in their own eyes but are not washed of their filth. There are those–how lofty are their eyes, how high their eyelids lift! There are those whose teeth are swords, whose fangs are knives, to devour the poor from off the earth, the needy from among mankind. (Proverbs 30:12-14)

The wicked, the narcissist, the sociopath, the abuser, is clean in his own eyes. He is covered with the filth of his evil, but he sees himself as spotless. Justified. Yes, he raged and threatened last night, but he had a right to it. He had to do it. Any guilt lies elsewhere. Like the Pharisees whom Jesus rebuked, this fellow sees himself as white and clean, all the while inside he is filthy, filthy, filthy with the corrupt evil of his own heart.

Look at him. See how lofty his eyes are? He is proud of himself and even boasts of his evil to those whom he oppresses. He is never wrong. Never guilty. Always right. Blame never rests upon him.

But when he speaks, his sword and fangs go to work. His words are uttered with the purpose of destroying and devouring his victims off the face of the earth. He is a bully, picking on the weak. And even if you were to record his words, the slashes of his sword-tongue, and play them back to him, he would admit no wrong. “You made me. I had to do it. You deserved to be punished.”

He is clean in his own eyes, yet dripping with his own moral filth. One Day. One Day, finally, his mouth will be shut. No excuses possible. Because the One Who charges him on that Day is pure truth whose Word cuts far more deeply and cleanly than any sword the wicked might have used. And everyone will see it. Everyone. To the glory of God.

An Opportunity to License a Genuine Abuse Counselor

Many if not most of you have now met Kelly Orr through her video presentation at Christ Reformation Church last Sunday, and through her book, You Know Me. I am writing this post to invite anyone who feels so led and is able to assist us in raising funds for Kelly’s licensing program at Indiana State University.

Kelly already holds a masters degree in Agency Counseling, but in order to meet state licensing requirements to be a practicing Licenses Mental Health Counselor, she needs to complete more classes. We know Kelly quite well now and I can confidently commend her to you as a person who is a very gifted counselor, particularly in this area of victimization by domestic abusers and narcissists – for both children and adults. Kelly and her children have been through incredible suffering at the hands of evil – including oppression from her ex-church. But she is a survivor, and the big smile you see on her face evidencing that here is a person who has emerged from that darkness with the joy of Christ within. And much, much wisdom.

You all know that there is a drought of qualified, wise counselors and therapists when it comes to helping abuse victims heal, and to be wise about the wicked motives and tactics of abusers. It will be a huge benefit to be able to help place Kelly in this field. Counseling in this day, as you may know, can be done at distance even if clients live far away from the therapist. And more, obtaining this licensure will enable Kelly to enter a career in which she can freely support herself and her family.

I know that most abuse survivors are not at all wealthy and that not all will be able to help in this project, so please do not feel pressured. But for anyone who is able and who would like to help, you can donate in the following ways:

  • Mail a check to Christ Reformation Church, 7450 Alderbrook Rd., Tillamook, OR 97141
  • Donate via Paypal at our account there, christreform@gmail.com

Kelly, by the way, will be able to complete this program in just one school year. I will keep you all posted on the status of the fundraising and let you know when we have enough to cover her tuition and books.
