The account of a woman who got into doing porn and drugs... managed to try and stop the porn but encountered a couple of stumbling blocks on the way.

Top female porn star finds Jesus

Producers worked her relentlessly in the early phase of her career because of her youthful, fresh appearance. “I already looked like I was 12,” Brittni recalls. They dressed her in “little girl” clothing and pigtails, which made her uncomfortable.

The inescapable conclusion is that filmmakers wanted to appeal to the depraved fantasies of men with pedophile tendencies. “It’s disgusting how they can portray you as a little girl,” she says today. “It’s complete perversion.”

...
The ministry of XXX Church, which employs creative outreach strategies to the porn industry, caught Brittni’s attention at a porn convention. Their booth at the Exotica convention blares to attendees, “Jesus loves porn stars.” Remarkably, they distribute hundreds of Bibles at these venues.

One of the young women who ministers to the girls, Rachel Collins, made an impression on Brittni. “She brought coffee, Bibles, lip gloss to the girls in the industry,” Brittni recalls. “She was so sweet and loving; there was a glow to her.”

After Brittni saw Rachel’s photo in one of their magazines, she contacted the ministry and eventually filmed an interview with Rachel about her experience with adult films.


I have read about the XXX Church. What a creative ministry to help those people who perform and watch pornography find Jesus Christ.

Video interview here.

Creative indeed, if they help people perform pornography.

As for helping people watch it - I've never needed assistance.

Wonderful news! -- Another example of the good news that nobody is beyond God's love or reach. Jesus Christ is for everyone! There is little real difference between a “porn star, a prostitute … or a porn watcher” --- except in the eyes of the viewer.

The notion of many that 'some are beyond God's reach' ... or that a believer can only 'reach out' to those who first 'appear' to be seeking Christ, 'limits' the availability of some Christians to be used by God in many situations. I’ve run into this attitude among many Christians, when/toward ministering in prisons, missions and the streets. (It's like some are thinking, "I wish the lost would come to my house or church ... so I could talk to them about Jesus Christ").

I'll be honest...I've taken issue with xxx church's methods in the past. I'm not saying everything they do is suddenly great, but if God has used them to save 1 person, praise God.

God can reach anyone at any place, at any time, and with some people the conversion is a dramatic experience, going from one extreme to the other in a day, while in many other cases it is a smoother transistion where God draws people gently.

That is great news they changed. I really hope some people don't go and try and find their videos from their old profession :-(

That's one concern--by lifting her up as an example and giving her former name....there will be even plenty of Christians that will be "curious" to see who she was. I'm not saying it's right....but people will do it.

I am getting strong. I go on my spurts of watching porn. Eventually I get tired of it and stop. Now is one of those moments.

Good for you, cannon (appropriate name, by the way, for the topic).

I saw a bumper sticker the other day that read, "Jesus loves condoms". I think that car is doing a great service for the Lord (and society).
