Luke 15:7 says, “I say to you that likewise there will be more joy in heaven over a sinner who repents than ninety-nine just persons who need no repentance.

The above verse is one of the most famous quotations from the Bible. It is one of tools Christians use persuade all sinners, notwithstanding the gravity of their sins to turn to God for salvation. We guess heaven is shaking with much joy right now because a porn star by name Crystal Bassette, from Clay, New York who has starred in over 100 x-rated movies (what we popularly refer to as blue film in Ghana) has reportedly quit the porn industry for the pulpit.

Crystal did not only quit the lucrative business to become a pastor but she has got married to a pastor called David. Together they have a church called New Beginnings Christian Life in Fulton, New York.

Crystal told reporters that: “I look back at my past now and you know I can’t say that I really regret anything because it has made me who I am today.”

Crystal became pregnant at a tender age of 16 and determined to give her child the best of life, she decided to work very hard to support him. However severe living conditions meat her career as a model and feature dancing couldn’t sustain her financially. So when an adult film agent approached her to discuss the possibility of having her in their fold with a mouth-watering £25,000 a month, the temptation was irresistible.

Recounting her first shot at porn and her mum view on her profession she said: “I remember after the scene, I sat in the shower for about two hours crying. Then I stopped after that shoot and didn’t go back for about one month. I ended up going back to it again and that’s when I was numbing myself through taking pain medicine and drinking alcohol to get through the scene.

My mom was very supportive of it. She kind of let me make my own decisions. They were both pretty disappointed in me though. I mean my father, he was very disappointed in me, got mad at first but they eventually got over it. I just lived for myself and my son and didn’t really think about the consequences of making films and dancing and everything. I started to become an object. I wouldn’t walk outside my house without showing cleavage, having a belly shirt on and high heels. It was like had to constantly look like the sex symbol.”

 We hope this story has inspired you enough to realise that there is hope for the sinner.
