Does a Sex Offender Live in Your Neighborhood?

Featured Story

We should not minimize the powerful hold sex addiction can have on a person. As with all sin addictions, the only true cure for sex addiction is Jesus Christ. We have all sinned and fallen short of the glory of God (Romans 3:23). Because of our sin, we all deserve the judgment of eternal death (Romans 6:23). Jesus, who was God in human form, paid the eternal/infinite penalty for us (2 Corinthians 5:21). If we fully trust His sacrifice on our behalf as the full payment for our sin, receiving Him as Savior in faith, He promises that all of our sins are forgiven. Then, God makes us a new creation (2 Corinthians 5:17) and begins the process of conforming us to His will (Romans 12:1-2), including enabling us to overcome sin and break any sin addictions we have. “Wretched man that I am! Who will deliver me from this body of death? Thanks be to God through Jesus Christ our Lord” (Romans 7:24-25).

Family Watchdog

Family Watchdog lets you search by ZIP code, address, or school name to show the addresses of nearby sex offenders. The service is free and uses public records to compile an accurate map of nearby offenders, as well as the severity of their charges. Offender profiles show a photo, which we find useful.

National Sex Offender Public Website (NSOPW)

The NSOPW is the Department of Justice’s sex offender registry. It works a lot like Family Watchdog, but it recently released a mobile app that includes a map and lets you search for nearby offenders by name, ZIP code, and address.

How does the sex offender registry work?

A sex offender registry helps governments and local authorities keep track of sex offenders. Sex offenders are legally obligated to register and update local authorities on any changes to their address.

The US uses an offense-based registry, a black-and-white approach to labeling sex offenders that leaves the severity of an offender’s crimes uncertain. That also means it’s harder to know the risk level if you’re living in their neighborhood. If you want to learn more about a local sex offender’s arrest history, Family Watchdog can help you gain access to their arrest records.

Safety tips for you and your family

Many people in the sex offender registry aren’t a threat to you and your family, but it’s still smart to take some precautions. So if you find one or more registered sex offenders living in your neighborhood, there are some things you can do to ensure the safety of your family.

Get to know your neighbors

It’s a good idea, in general, to get to know your neighbors, but if there’s a sex offender in your neighborhood, they can help keep an eye on your kids when they’re playing outside or waiting at the bus stop in the morning—especially if they have kids as well.

Set safety standards with your kids

Don’t let your kids wander the neighborhood alone. Make sure they’re always with a group or supervised by an adult. Consider driving them to school or walking them to the bus stop so they don’t get caught on their own.Best home security systemsVivintBest home automation & equipment View PlansFrontpointBest easy DIY installation View PlansADTBest reputationView PlansSimpliSafeMost flexible contractsView PlansCoveGreat no-contractView Plans

Install a home security system

Upgrade your home with a security system that comes with camerasmotion detectors, and intrusion sensors. That way you can keep a better eye on your home, property, and family’s protection even when you’re not home.

Protect yourself

Consider carrying small self-defense items like pepper spray if you’re running or walking alone—especially when it’s dark out. Source

Keep an eye on the sex offender registry

Sex offenders move as much as anyone else. Check back on the registry periodically to keep an eye on any new offenders that might have recently moved into your neighborhood. Sex Offenders in My Area, Search now for FREE!

National Sex Offender Public Website—coordinated by the Department of Justice—enables every citizen to search the latest information from all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, Guam, and numerous Indian tribes for the identity and location of known sex offenders.

The people spreading concrete information on the dangers of globalism are accomplishing far more than those sitting around buying bitcoin or passing around Q-cult nonsense.

Let Me Make This Abundantly Clear. (I Am Apolitical) While I Have a General Distaste for Politicians No Matter the Party They Belong To, I Am Unashamedly Politically a Bible Believing Conservative Christian. I Have a Severe Distrust of Government. I Believe It Is the Most Inefficient and Ineffective Way to Accomplish Most Things. While I Strongly Disagree with Liberals/Progressives and Conservative on Most Political Issues, and While I Believe Liberals/Progressives and Most Politicians Are Terribly Misguided and Naive About What Big Government Will Eventually Result In, I Strive to Not Question Their Motives. at the Same Time, While I Find Myself in Agreement with Conservative Politicians on Some Issues, I Do Not Believe Electing Republicans Is the Answer to Everything. for Me, Very Sadly, the Main Difference Between Republicans and Democrats Is How Quickly They Want to Drive the Car Towards the Cliff. Simply put, I do not believe the government is the solution for everything. I do not place any faith, trust, or hope in any politicians to fix what is wrong with the world. “Come Lord Jesus!” (Revelation 22:20)

Education is useless without the bible (Daniel Webster)

Usually, the Lord doth no great thing for or against his people, without giving warning of it before it comes.

John Wesley who said that what we tolerate in our generation, will be embraced by the next. Wesley is 100% correct! We are living in sick times.

Evil Exists So Spiritual Warfare Becomes Necessary!

  1. Corinthians 4:8-11 New King James Version (NKJV)
  2. We are hard-pressed on every side, yet not crushed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; 9. persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed— 10. always carrying about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life of Jesus also may be manifested in our body. 11. For we who live are always delivered to death for Jesus’ sake, that the life of Jesus also may be manifested in our mortal flesh.

Satan has power over (LGBTQE-TRANS PEOPLE). The “sons of disobedience” referred to in Ephesians 2:2 are those who have not trusted Christ as Lord and Savior (cf. Acts 26:18; 2 Corinthians 4:4; Revelation 13:12). The demons are also under the rule of Satan (Matthew 12:24), and one of his titles is “prince of demons” (Matthew 9:34). Satan has a kingdom (Matthew 12:26) and a throne (Revelation 2:13). Satan is called a prince because he is a ruler and possesses the power to manifest evil in the world through influencing people and commanding demons.

HNewsWire- “All political language is designed to make lies sound truthful and murder respectable.” Just look at some of our modern-day examples: torture is “enhanced interrogation techniques”; murder is “collateral damage”; the aggression initiation of war is a “pre-emptive strike”; the theft of taxpayers’ money is a “bailout”, and the theft of depositors’ money in a bank is a “haircut” or “bail-in”.In a blatant example of Newspeak, the New World Order controllers (through the psychiatric DSM V) have tried to rename pedophiles as “minor-attracted persons” and redefine pedophilia as “sexual orientation”. This makes no sense since sexual orientation has to do with gender, not age, with whether you are attracted to males or females, not how old they are. There are even organizations (like B4UAct.org) which are claiming that pedophiles are being unfairly stigmatized for their feelings!
