Thoughts From A Porn Show Producer

XXXChurch is all about loving people right where they are.  In a recent article by Fireproof Ministries, they share an interview with J. Handy, who produces one of the largest porn shows in our country. Handy is happy to have XXXChurch at every “Exxxotica” show as an exhibitor.  Odd paring from most points of view.

Handy states, “seeing a ministry inside a porn show was surprising initially, but honestly, the beauty of it is–right down to the crazy protestors outside our show–everyone has free speech…so for us to think negatively or act negative toward someone who wants to say what they want to say would be hypocritical.”

Handy goes on to say that the difference between XXXChurch and the vocal religious protestors out on the sidewalks, is that XXXChurch recognizes that to get someone’s interest, speak to them and reach people, you need to meet them where they are, love them and patiently let people come to them.

“Don’t just pretend to love others. Really love them. Hate what is wrong. Hold tightly to what is good.” (Romans 12:9 NLT)

Isn’t that what Jesus does? He loves us right where we are, accepts us and patiently waits for us to come to Him. He doesn’t protest loudly or judge us. Jesus doesn’t have a gimmick to see how He can get you to join His religion, He loves you. Right where you are with all your flaws!

“But to all who believed him and accepted him, he gave the right to become children of God.” (John 1:12 NLT)

We often look at people and put them into categories of who is deserving of our efforts to share Jesus. The truth is anyone who believes has the right to become a child of God!

Handy believes that what XXXChurch does works!  If a porn show producer gets it, we need to get it!

XXXChurch invades porn shows with the love of Jesus. Invade your world. Be on the offense, but don’t be offensive. Love people where they are, they will see Jesus and their lives will be changed!
