Troubled star Lindsay Lohan has vowed to quit Hollywood in an effort to stay clean from drugs, according to her father.
I certainly have never been impressed with Hollywood any time I have been there.
It kind of feels seductively evil and eerily pretentious.
As the son of a mother, who for as long as I can remember, was addicted to alcohol and drugs, I can empathize with Lindsay and millions of others throughout the world.
I myself have found solace and comfort in Christ Jesus who daily fills my heart to overflowing with His blessed Holy Spirit, which is far better than any substance on earth.
The Ireland On-Line reported Michael Lohan reunited with his daughter earlier this month in Utah, where the Mean Girls star is seeking counselling at the Cirque Lodge treatment centre.
He says: "When we finally came face to face we just clung on to each other and did not stop crying for at least half an hour.
"Lindsay said:, 'Daddy, I have done some terrible things and been addicted to drugs but please believe me I will never do drugs again.
I hate Hollywood and I don't want to work there.
I need a break and I am moving away.
I will stop hanging around with the people that are bad for me.
' Undoubtedly your friends most definitely help form and determine your future.
Lindsay confessed that it is in Hollywood where much of the evil that occurs in her life happens.
That being said, what is the film and entertainment industry really made up of and driven by?Certainly we who are mesmerized by it should ask ourselves these questions before being engulfed by Hollywood's infatuations and immorality lest we find ourselves becoming increasingly filthy.
No matter where we live and reside, drugs and sexual immorality can be found.
Yet Hollywood pumps perversion right into our homes by way of television.
Hollywood seems to applaud such a perverse and wicked lifestyle more than anywhere else.
Hollywood is where self reigns supreme and people are allowed to be pretentious and mean.
Filmmaking is about entertainment, which we all love and enjoy.
However the stars being paid extraordinary amounts of cash for their performances recognize that for them Hollywood can become an ego driven and self-absorbed industry that further inflates one's self-image beyond livable proportions.
When young stars like Lindsay become brutally honest with themselves and desire personal transformation, variables such as friends and place of residence are huge.
I salute and applaud Lindsay for taking an intense and earnest look into her lifestyle and everything influencing her behavior.
Lindsay is definitely a talented and gifted young lady.
Gifts however must be guarded and properly guided.
Otherwise we shall self-destruct when left to ourselves.
Ironically we often are our own worst enemy.
God is the missing component in the equation for me.
As a minister I'd love to help Lindsay get free and experience transformation fully.
