Alliance Against Pornography

“Jesus Loves Porn Stars!” You may have heard this phrase before from XXX Church. 3X Church is a ministry dedicated to raising awareness about the affects of pornography on God’s people. They travel to churches to speak about the issue of pornography. They setup at adult entertainment trade shows to hand out Bibles with “Jesus Loves Porn Stars!” emblazed on the cover. Craig Gross and his team also conduct debates with Ron Jeremy (long-time adult entertainment industry giant) on college campuses.

L.I.F.E. Ministries and XXX Church have joined forces to further the battle against pornography. Every month, millions of internet pornography sites are visited and with 3X Church’s awareness initiatives and the L.I.F.E. Guide series to combat it, we can remove shame and sexual impurity one addict at a time.

L.I.F.E. Ministries is a Christ-centered support group ministry whose mission is to encourage, empower, and equip God’s people to live everyday in sexual integrity. L.I.F.E. created the L.I.F.E. Guide series of workbooks with editor Dr. Mark Laaser, the foremost Christian expert in sexual addiction recovery.

In April, 3X Church will release its co-branded L.I.F.E. Guides. These guides retain the material of the original guide, but have an introduction from 3X Church and a unique cover to match their ministry’s look. They will take these guides across the country to offer not only awareness of the affects of pornography, but also to give people a tool to combat it.

Please keep 3X Church and L.I.F.E. Ministries in prayer as we both ascend to new levels in our ministries.

So what are the seven steps? It is well been demonstrated that the 12 steps didn't work so what was dropped to try again?

Brockwell with L.I.F.E. Ministries said...

There was not a reduction from the 12 steps to 7 steps. Dr. Mark Laaser has developed the Seven Principles for Living In Freedom Everyday:
1. We admit that we have absolutely no control of our lives. Sexual sin has become unmanageable.
2. We believe in God, accept the grace offered through His Son Jesus Christ, and surrender our lives and our wills to Him on a daily basis.
3. We make a list of our sins and weaknesses and confess those to a person of spiritual authority.
4. We seek accountability and to build our character as children of God.
5. We explore the damage we have done, accept responsibility, and make amends for our wrongs.
6. In fellowship with others we develop honest, intimate relationships, where we celebrate our progress and continue to address our weaknesses.
7. As we live in sexual integrity, we carry the message of Christ's healing to those who still struggle, and we pursue a vision of God's purpose for our lives.

Thanks for this. I had no idea XXXChurch even existed.
I will bring it up next time I hear one of the ladies sounds of exasperation about combatting pornography.
This will put them a little closer to the trenches. Help them feel more directly involved.
