AFA Filter from American Family Online
Family Filter We have come to realize that for an Internet filter to be truly
effective, it must protect the whole family. The parents as well as children
need protection from the destructive material on the Internet. A filter must
also be secure. A filter that can be disabled will be, and usually at the
time it is needed most. A filter needs to perform. It needs to be invisible
to the subscriber except when bad material is encountered.
Family Filter is built on the Christian principal of holiness and living a
pure life. Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever
is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable--if
anything is excellent or praiseworthy--think about such things. Philippians
4:8 If you have been seriously shopping for an Internet access control (filtering
software) product, the American Family Filter is for you!
Filter stands apart from other blocking software, employing a uniquely Christian
approach to our content filtering. We adhere to a higher standard, because
American Family Filter is a ministry first and foremost, and therefore we
are accountable to a Higher Authority for the product we produce...."
Block this Site
well over 1 Million sites (not just pages) have been classified inappropriate
under our filtering standards, and we are adding more every day! Rest assured
that we are doing our best to protect you and your family from unacceptable
sites. However, new sites containing objectionable material go online everyday.
In order for us to reach our goal of 100% effectiveness we will use the latest
technology and tools at our disposal and we will even develop new technology
that is needed to help provide that environment. But ultimately, it will still
require your help to be the best!
is not to say we want you to go looking for trouble. Pornography is dangerous,
and viewing it (even for a moment) can set off a terrible chain of events.
However, should you stumble across something unacceptable please let us know.
God bless you and thank you for your help! Please keep us in your prayers!
This is a spiritual battle!
