The Marked Man

Lies destroyed him, and changed his life forever. His mark is like the thread woven in the fabric of his clothing, and a bullseye shot engraved in the center of his forehead. He is a Marked Man. The world will never accept him, as a free man.

The truth is suppose to set a person free. And therefore, the soul is free to enjoy life and happiness. But on the other hand, a lie can imprison a person mentally and physically and take away his liberty. But it cannot hold his soul as a prisoner.

The Marked Man was once a free man, living in society and enjoying his life, until it all ended on an early summer morning while jogging in his neighborhood. His neighbors described him as a "good guy." His employer said,  "He is a hard worker." Some of his acquaintances said, he is too kind-hearted, and others said, they have personal feelings about him, but did not care to discuss them.
Good guys and hard workers can have enemies. Lies are a kind of evil, that search for good guys and hard workers to cause them harm. They found an innocent man, and destroyed his life with their mark. While he was jogging, his enemies were committing an act of violence and plotting to put him at the scene of a crime that he did not commit, at 10:00 a.m. on that Saturday morning.

As he was jogging, two patrol cars pulled ahead of him several feet away and stopped. The officers  approached him on feet. He slowed his pace. They ordered him to stop, and get his hands up in the air, so they could see them. He was searched, and the Miranda Rights were read to him. He chose to remain silent, and wait to speak with his lawyer. He knew he was innocent of whatever, he was being arrested for.

After speaking with his lawyer, he was informed the charges are homicide and robbery that occurred at a restaurant in his neighborhood. Multiple people were shot, and some were fatal. He was told, there is a  female star witness, who said she saw him at the scene, and several other witnesses identified him as well. Yet, he was nowhere near the restaurant at the time of the crime.

 How could this be happening? When will I wake up, and this will all be a dream? (he thought to himself) Although, he knew this was reality. And he asked, "Who is this star witness?" 'Miss Jane' was the name she called herself. After a moment of reflecting on the name 'Jane'  he remembered her vividly: And the words came flooding his memory like hot boiling water when it splashes on the skin. They were the words she yelled at him after a fight, "You bastard! We will get  you for this!"  Seeing the discomfort on the face of the Marked Man, the detective asked him, "Do you know her?"  "Yes!"  He replied in anger.

Now, he knew who framed him. He had thought they were out of his life for good. They never left. They had waited and planned this evil to use against him.

How  could they be so evil, and cold hearted, after all the good things he had done for them?

The Marked Man Reflecting Upon the Fight He Had with Jane and Bob (Jane's husband):

It was the night after he had returned home from work, and found them stealing items from his house and putting them in their car: He became angry with them, and demanded that they return his items.
The Marked Man accused them of taking an advantage of his hospitality for much too long. He had taken them into his home as a homeless and hungry couple, who needed a place to stay for a few weeks until they found work. They promised they would help out on his ranch with the chores for the animals, while they looked for work. However, they did not keep any of their promises. Instead, they stole from him, and considered themselves to be his special guests, and enjoyed the luxuries of his financial gains.

Miss Jane, wanted her husband to believe that she and the Marked Man, were having an affair behind his back. (She did these things to make Bob jealous)
The Marked Man said, to Bob, "I am dead serious! I want you guys to put my property back in my house, and start looking for your own place, beginning tomorrow. You have 48 hours to be  off my property."

Miss Jane said, "Bob! Don't put any of this stuff back. He gave it to me, for sexual favors." After hearing this, the Marked Man, faced her and said, "That is a lie, and you know it! You have been flirting with me, but I have ignored it." Hearing this, Bob, pulled a knife on the Marked Man, and said, "Don't call my wife a liar! She said you did this, and I believe her! She told me you raped her, and threatened to  kick us out, if she told me."

The Marked Man kicked the knife from Bob's hand, put him in a headlock, and took him down to the ground. Within seconds, Miss Jane, was standing and pointing his own gun at him, demanding that he let Bob go!
Quickly, the Marked Man threw Bob onto Miss Jane's feet, his head hit her knees, causing her to lose her balance. She fell backward and the gun flew out of her hands. The Marked Man grabbed his gun. He asked her, "Were you going to shoot me, with my own gun? Don't bother to answer. You are a liar! And a thief!" He said.
Holding his gun as a skill shooter, he said to them, "Get up! And Get out! Put my property back and leave. Don't ever come near this place again. I never want to see you anywhere near this place. You are thieves and liars."
Miss Jane yelled in anger at the Marked Man, "You Bastard! We will get  you for this!"

The Trial
Facing Miss Jane and her husband Bob, and the other so called witnesses, during the trial, while listening to them telling lies, after lies, made his stomach ache.  Miss Jane portrayed herself to be a helpless victim, and the Marked Man as the evil perpetrator.
She told the court, the Marked Man, raped her more than once while they lived in his home, and paid her in money and gifts to not tell her husband. She also, said he threatened to kick them out of his home if she mentioned these sexual encounters to anyone. She was such a great actress! She appeared to be sobbing in her hands hysterically; and her shoulders shook violently as if these things actually did happen. The Marked Man would have believed her himself, had she not been his accuser.

After such performance, she said to the court in a shaky voice, "I was with him this morning, and he told me he was going to the restaurant, and rob the place after shooting as many people as possible. She then informed the court, that she had gone to the restaurant, about 15 to 20 minutes before the shooting to warn the manager, to watch for the Marked Man that said those things to her.  She then, dried her eyes, on the back of her hands, and stepped down from the witness stand. After leaving the stand, she looked at the Marked Man, with the expression on her face that said to him, "You are our prisoner"

The Plea
The Marked Man's plea, was "innocent."  But he had no evidence to prove his accusers were wrong. The Marked Man, had said, "Good Morning" to his neighbor that morning as he jogged passed his home, while he was mowing. He could not be sure if he saw him, or heard him, above the noise of the lawn mower; but felt it might be worth it, to call him as a witness.
His neighbor was unable to identify him as the man that was jogging on that Saturday morning when the shooting occurred at the restaurant, because when he looked up from mowing his lawn, the back of the man was in his view. There were no other witnesses that could help him.

The Prison Sentence:
The court found the Marked Man guilty on the charges of robbery and murder. He was sentenced to prison for life, without parole. His lawyer informed him, he had gathered a team of lawyers who were working with him to get the evidence they needed to clear him of these charges.
The Marked Man spent 15 years behind bars for a crime he did not commit. However, he prayed day and night upon every hour, he spent behind the corridors of his prison cell, for his freedom. He asked, that his lawyer and others working on this case, would find him to be innocent, so he could enjoy his freedom again. On the day his lawyer and the others who had worked on his case came to visit him, they told him he was a free man. He could leave the prison, and return to society.
He thought he would be happy, to hear those words after 15 years. Instead, he became sad, when he realized he no longer had his ranch to returned to, it had been foreclosed by the bank where he had a lien on his property. He no longer owned anything; just his prison clothes on his back. He was the Marked Man.

Life for the Marked Man was a big disappointment. Society saw him as a prisoner who had escaped. No one trusted him, he could not find a job to hold for more than a couple of weeks, the employer would find an excuse to terminate his job for reasons that appeared to be false. He was homeless and hungry and it was not because he wanted to live this way. He still had his dignity, and the character of a hard worker when given the opportunity.

He had tried to live as a free man in society, outside the walls of the prison he had left behind, but society judged him harshly and was never going to accept him as a free man, in this world, where every human being should be judged by God. They saw the 'Marked Man' through the eyes of fear; He is an evil image that lies branded upon him. He was tired of being without a home and going hungry. He was tired of living as a prisoner in society.

He decided to return to the prison as a volunteer worker, and help those who appreciated his work. There were plenty he could do: he offered his work for free. And this is what he did with his skills: Educational level teaching, Social activities level teaching, and Spiritual level teaching.

The people here had accepted him as a free man upon his return, and showed their willingness to appreciate the skills he offered them. It was in this place where he understood the true meaning of liberty. His soul was free. This was his choice to be here.
He found contentment in giving of his time to help those who needed the things he could offer to them, for free.
Scripture:  Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.
II Corinthians 3:17

When Lies Destroys

Standing up against lies means facing challenges. However, when we know that lies are causing harm that can destroy innocent lives, we should stand up for the right thing and resist such individuals bad behavior.

Standing up for the right thing, can sometimes be painful when one has to make a sacrifice to challenge this kind of behavior.

In this case an innocent woman was falsely accused of kidnapping her own child at birth, by another woman who knew she was intentionally lying so she could cover up a mistake she had made that she could benefit from, by replacing her deceased child with a living child.

The false accuser had put her baby in bed with her for the night, and had caused the baby's death, by laying on it.  When the two women stood before the king to argue their case, both claimed to be the mother of the living child. So, the king ordered  a sword to be brought to him. He informed the women that this case could be resolved if he cut the child in half and gave each woman half of the child.

The birth mother of the baby, said no, to the king and asked that he spare the child's life. And she asked him to give the child to the mother of the deceased child. But her false accuser refused to take the child alive, and asked the king to not allow the child to belong to either of them. Instead, to kill the child and give each of them half.

The king knew that the mother who was willing to stand up for the right thing, even though she would be accused of having kidnapped this child, and would have to live with this painful sacrifice of giving her child up in order to space his life, was the child's birth mother. Therefore, he allowed her to keep the child.

When those who are in positions to uphold the laws use them to defend innocent people, they are standing up for the right thing. This is when the wheel of justice is turning in the right direction.
If we the people, are not willing to stand up against liars and challenge them to prevent their lies from destroying innocent lives, the reputation of others, and even our own, we risk having to pay for their evil behavior.

Why I Wrote The Price We Must Pay For Our Father's Sins

Author: Ellen Jean Barrier



The year is 1994, and I'm presently writing my first book and have yet to finish. I see visions of people and hear their voices when I'm asleep and when I'm awake. Every place they go and every event in their life is always before me. Each one of them has their own story. I only need to write what I see and what I hear.

Their stories are played out before my eyes in many different scenes. Unlike the other book I'm working onwhich needs facts and researchthis book requires neither. And unlike the other book, I knew the title previous to writing it. But for this book, such was not the case. Still, I must write their stories.

I feel the emotions of each of these characters. Their emotions are within my being. As I write their stories I feel happiness, sadness, anger, love, hate, uncertainty, and hopelessness. Their stories have taken me on a journey, through which I have seen many tragedies and visited many places where horrible things have happened to innocent people.

In the year of 1997, I saw a scene where a young man, who had endured much suffering and hardship, sat and visited with friends, confiding in them about his life and others. "Death is the inevitable price we must pay," he said. He further noted, "this is the price we must pay for our father's sins."

In the year of 2013 The Price We Must Pay For Our Father's Sins was nominated for best screenplay at the Beverly Hills Film Festival.

Photos and Quotes from The Price We Must Pay For Our Father's Sins


Death is the inevitable price we must pay. Freedom is not a thing my family nor myself have ever experienced. Our father's evilness prevented us from being free.

My brother and I were born in his prison. It made us enemies, and holds our mother captive.

This is the price we must pay for our father's sins.

Tony Elliott,
The son of Jim Elliott



Priscilla Emerson, the wife of Jim Elliott lives in a prison of fear and torment. On her wedding night, she discovered the true identity of the man she had fallen in love with.

The eyes she once loved to gaze into, during the romantic moments they spent together, that brought out the passion of a deep love that she felt from within her soul for him, vanished on her wedding night: When she looked into his eyes she saw cold and deadly evil with a murderous look that caused her to fear him. Each time he touched her, fear gripped her soul as the flames of hell that consumed her entire body. She knew he was incapable of loving another human being.

She and her family can never be free from this prison:

"How can a dead man reach beyond the grave and continue to destroy and dominate someone else's life?  The pain he has inflicted upon me will never go away." Priscilla concludes.
