Craig Gross from xxxchurch.com

I spent the day with Craig Gross, founder of xxxchurch.com. If you are not familiar with their ministry…these guys rock. They have been on the front lines (literally) of the porn industry sharing about Christ. They have several resources on their site including some accountability software for people who are struggling with pornography or lust. What I love about these guys is that they are not afraid to take risks…they often find the edge and then take two more steps.Craig Gross and Bobby

We spent the day discussing some projects that we are working on together.

I encourage you to check out their site. It is a very important issue that for years the Church has been too afraid to talk about. I know many pastors and church leaders who have struggled and still struggle with this. They also have a couple of ways that they help churches address the issue of pornography including a Saturday morning men’s breakfast called “Porn and Pancakes” and an event called “Porn Sunday”.

    I agree Bobby, these are great and the real deal. We did Porn Sunday at St. Paul’s Collegiate Church and it was life-changing for a lot people. We also got involved with Starving Jesus which was a great deal!

    Glad to hear you guys are working together on some stuff and it will be fun to see what you all come up with!

    I use the xxx-watch from their site and I love their Jesus Loves Porn Stars shirt. They definately are taking the Good News to the front lines and are making a huge difference. Way to go!

    I love that they are willing to take chances, without taking chances you can’t reach people. The church today HAS to be progressive.

    I thank God that your ministry is reaching out to help those people struggling in this area. What a precious gift to the Body. FREEDOM in Christ to us all. Amen.

    warn porn stars about the transferance and contraction of demons through sex. It is a reality no one talks about. It happened to me and I’m still praying for deliverance. john

    In addition, Also the type of evil spirits contracted through fornication and adultry are typically Jezebelian in nature and are the species that usually only come out through prayer and fasting. This proves to be a very difficult deliverance as exorcism is a censored church ministry, and the church through ignorance has greatly through deception of hyper-dispensational ministers denied the existence of demons. They say that a “Christian” can’t have a demon. This is contrary even to the Bible. Also the Rush Rock Anthem song “Tom Sawyer” in which the words describe possession of Christians primarily is about an ecto-plasmic demon.

    John, the Holy Spirit has been stepping me through my Inner Child and five wounds and traumas that happened during my lifetime from childhood whereby I was harboring for decades resentments, angers, terrors, bitterness, and rebellion within my subconsious that He showed me by removing the viel. These proved to be the strongholds to spirits that you mention fornication, adultry, and others along those lines that have been leaving me including sexual addiction over the last couple of weeks in a nightly deliverance and cleansing that the Lord is doing in my life. I stumbled over your REPLY and the MOMENT I READ IT, It was INSTANTLY brought to my mind that I had this spirit in me and I began renouncing it and it had many other spirits attached to it and just by reading your write up the Holy Spirit involved me in a instant deliverance which lasted about 10 minutes. Praise God that through reading your reply on Jezebelian I was able to name the spirit that was hidden deep with in me and commence the deliverance and I am now Clean. I simply had to tell someone what God had done, I am now FREE!!! and there were many, many spirits attached to Jezebel. Thank You.

    For a balanced and scriptural look at the subject of deliverance please read “A Step Into Deliverance” by Toni Pugh. It is an engrossing autobiographical account of one pastor’s amazing battle against and ultimate defeat over the spirit of Jezebel. Foreword by Bill Banks, CEO of Impact Christian Books and publisher of the bestseller Pigs in the Parlor, this fascinating book is a love story, a deliverance manual and a study guide all rolled into one. It is available at http://www.winepressgroup.com or amazon.com or any online Christian bookstore. Please consider using this unforgettable page-turner as a recommending read for your clients and reading audience.

    Thanks

    The main spirit that took me out came in through my x-fiance’ Delilah. That’s the Word God gave me when I was considering her. Nobody teaches of that and men everywhere are being framed by that demon. It’s titled dom. vio. SHE HITS FIRST. The philistine rulers wait for you to respond so they can arrest and plunder you. It’s the spirit of the whore. She was a real slut. She took his eyes and life. Delilah took down Samson. The Philistine Rulers captured him first. It happened to me too. I didn’t listen to the Word of knowledge God gave me regarding Delilah. Beelzebub the god of ekron. Nasty Demon of divination. Hard to expel. Lord have mercy and guide us away from those types of women and grant them repentance.
