30 DAY PORN FREE CHALLENGE

30 DAYS OF ADVICE TO HELP YOU STAY PORN FREE

Porn and Pancakes vSteve.0

by Steve-Oh on August 24th, 2009 in Men

 

Just over 48 hours ago I was in Duluth, Ga attending my second Porn and Pancakes breakfast. If you have never been to a P & P I suggest you go. You can gain some wonderful knowledge and leave with a full belly. Perimeter Church was the host for this great mens event. They had a huge breakfast (the pancakes covered the entire plate) and live music. There was a nervous excitement in the air. Some of the men I’m sure didn’t know what to expect and others were ready to hear the ugly truth about porn. Around 9am Craig Gross hit the stage. By this time there were about 500 men in the room eager to hear what Craig had to say. For those of you who have never seen or heard Craig speak he is bright, funny, serious and straight forward. Craig told stories and shared video footage of men who have lost everything they have family, freedom, stability to porn addiction. He discussed what XXX Church was doing tho help those who struggle with the addiction and those in the sex industry. Craig also talked about how important accountability is to fighting this battle and how we need to be open and discuss these issues. Craig then introduced the men to Donny Pauling, a preachers son and ex-porn producer. Donny is very open and honest about the career he had as a porn producer. He talked about how he hated the church and that he loved telling church folks what he did or a living. He said that when he first saw XXX Church he thought it was a joke, then he found out they were youth pastors. This started the harassment. Donny told of how he used to get on the XXX Church site and talk trash and post links to his porn sites. Craig jumped in and said that Donny was the only person ever to get banned from the site because he wouldn’t quit posting X rated links. It was like giving a recovering alcoholic a fifth. Donny agreed that when ever he threw junk or talked smack to anyone at XXX Church they would always respond with love. He also shared how God miraculously changed his life. He told stories of broken women, how he would recruit girls and talked about how there were numerous women who called and wanted pictures deleted from the net regretting what they did for money. When Donny finished the crowd rose to their feet and applauded. I don’t believe the applause was completely for him. It was for a Savior who loved him enough to say “I have a better life for you, I love you” and change his life forever.

After the message I went out to help with the booth as Craig and Donny were taking time to talk to everyone. While working the table I cant tell you how many times I heard “thank you” or as I heard from one guy who said that he has been porn free since Oct 2008 and is using X3 Watch on his computer to help keep him accountable for his actions. It seemed to me that everyone left encouraged and ready to take on the task of discussing the porn issue with friends, family and church.

What do you need to do now? Go to www.xxxchurch.com and check out the dates of future Porn and Pancakes or Porn Debates and attend. If you dont see an event near you find out what it takes to get one going, talk to your church and get one going. Until next week..

    Damn Donny Pauling is a very sick man.

    • Corey

      Correction – Donny Pauling WAS a very sick man. He’s now a very saved man. Grace is a beautiful thing.

      • boohoojohnny

        You must have missed the news this month: Donny Pauling Jr.: Anti-Porn Crusader Arrested On Charges Of Sex With A Minor.

        They just added more charges and more victims.

        • Corey

          I did indeed miss the news. That’s really sad. Still, God’s Grace is sufficient – even for a guy like Donny. We need to pray for him – He needs that way more than fingers pointing out his failures. I’m sure has a lot of that as it is.

          • boohoojohnny

            You may be right, but you must remember that some people are natural predators and rely on good people like yourself who unknowingly legitimize and aide them in their aspirations to perpetrate a crime.

          • Corey

            I’m by no means legitimizing anything. Idon’t know anything about Donny – but what I do know is that God makes all things new…and I’m in no position to say that God is finished with Donny – that’s all. It’s my job to pray…so I will. God does the rest.

  • boohoojohnny

    Can you guys believe he hid a camera in that 13 year old girl’s bathroom to take videos of her showing. He claimed he wanted to see what her body looked like…for Jesus, of course. XXXchurch and Donny…like peanut butter and chocolate.
