My best friend has been working hard for many years so she can start her own business in agriculture. She works really hard to get good grades and to learn the ins and outs of everything. Today she decided she wants to give that all up, drop out, and be a stripper and a gold digger married to a rich man. Society has led her to think that nothing matters but hedonism and consumerism. Following such a lifestyle will only end in misery. Please pray that God will lead her away from desires of flesh and towards the truth.

I don't think there are any strip clubs in our county, and I'm not interested in finding out.

There was a post on this site a few weeks ago about how colleges are having trouble with so many freshman girls wanting to get rich off OnlyFans. It's not going to work. It is just heartbreaking that people even want to take that route.

Some things happened to her this summer and I think she's having a hard time with emotional security. I don't want her to throw her life away just because she doesn't think she's good enough.

You should lead her away. It is your job to help her as well. Be the tool of God.

Explain her that this will not bring her any happiness. Working as a whore, she will be treated as nothing more than an object, a piece of meat. Is that what she wants?

God bless you for looking out for her, OP. That is seriously screwed up. You mentioned that she’s gone through some serious stuff in another comment. I don’t know how close you are to her, but can you speak to her candidly about how you think she’s making a terrible decision out of a place of hurt?

Having even one person express care and empathy for her could be what saves her. This kind of acting out comes from a place of intense loneliness and self-loathing. If she has even one person she trusts who tells her she is worth more than that it might give her pause and allow her to move forward with her real dream. Please don’t let her do this to herself. If you speak with her and she does it anyway, then at least you will have the peace of mind of knowing that you did what you could.

I will pray for her, and for you. That is just wild.

Does she really want to defile herself for money or does she want to do what she feels lead to do?

Tell her the truth about what she's doing and the negative consequenses that will come with this lifestyle. Tell her that long term, that type of business will harm her more than it will help her and that she should press on with her agriculture if that's what she really wants to do. The sinful lifestyle will have it's consequenses, but pursuing what God wants her to do will be so much better for her, and she'll be able to help everyone else. Remind her that being involved in sex work won't bring her joy, it will hurt her, but doing the thing she wants to pursue will. Encourage her to trust in God and press on in Him. Tell her that even though society is the way it is, she can be a light for those in the dark and help others with her business. and just because others are involved in that stuff doesn't mean she should. Ask her what her family and God would think of her doing these things. Ask her what she really wants to do in life. Be kind to her and encourage her to press on with what she really wants to do.

Also, reminder that people involved in sex work have worse chances at getting jobs than regular people. Look these things up if you want to.

If she does get involved in that, tell her that God will forgive all of her sins and that she can come back to God at anytime. Jesus Christ died to pay the penalty for all of our sins that whosoever believes in him should not perish but have everlasting life. If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us of our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness

Colossians 2:13-14: "And you, being dead in your trespasses and the uncircumcision of your flesh, He has made alive together with Him, having forgiven you all trespasses, 14 having wiped out the [a]handwriting of requirements that was against us, which was contrary to us. And He has taken it out of the way, having nailed it to the cross. "

Praying for both of you.
