“I made a covenant with my eyes; why then should I think on a maid?”
Sunday we preached at the Adult.con convention aka porno convention downtown Los Angeles at the convention center. This perverted meeting had actors and actresses from the porn world, films, toys, clothing, belts, signed pictures and anything to do with what’s renamed ‘Adult Entertainment.’ Anything culture charnging a name, sin is involved, such as sodomy is ‘gay’ or fornication is ‘living together’ and anti-christ is being open minded. Please note, these ‘sex film performers’ (wink-wink) do not regard themselves as prostitutes for various reasons, but rather as ‘actors’ or ‘models’ so do not call them “whores” but ‘actors.’
The problem with doing a preach at any convention center is where in the center is the event you wish to target going to be and the L.A. convention is so large there were about 10-12 conventions inside the building at the same time. There was a lowrider car show wiith hundreds of cars everywhere, there was a ‘Women for Change foundation’ meeting, a ‘Cailfornia gift Show,’ the ‘NAACP 1002nd annual convention’ and a ‘Bride World Expo’ next to the porno converntion.
I set my banner up at one of the main entrances and told Angela to go inside with her Christian T-shirt and witness to those walking around, so she went in a mingled with the porn stars and those getting tickets for that event. All while I was outside preaching to those walking into the convention center and was soon giving an interview with the Adult.com camera crew, that lasted about 15 minutes with footage of my banner and my open air preaching.
“Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time, Thou shalt not commit adultery: But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart”
Angela was soon asked to leave the center and I was asked to move about 25 foot towards the street, we were still in voice range so we did and continued to preach. I had some very good conversations and many from the ‘Bride expo’ people that thanked me for being there. Most of the porno people flashed their ticket around their neck like jewelry and boasted in their sin, claiming they will be forgiven, even if they repent on their death bed. Yeah right, as if they know when they are going to die or they found some loop hole with God that He must pardon them. Do pray that the Lord bring forth laborers to reap our harvest and the Father give growth.
HERE IS SOME HERSTORY:
Since the early 1900s there were sex films or better known as hand-cranked films and rotoscopes, then evolved into penny arcades and magazines, then by the 1970s pornographic films were shown in public theaters. By the 1980’s one can watch adult movies in the privacy of their own homes, with VCR’s and later on DVD’s, now we have the internet where one can tap into any perverted fetish known to mankind and live web-cams. How will mankind up that in the future?
“And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually”
To be filed under “FOLLOW THE MONEY TRAIL:
There is an estimated $13 Billion annually spent on the porno industry, and must I remind you that we are in a recession? ? And that is not counting sex toys, magazines, books, prostitutes, topless and nude bars, etc, oh the money spent is off the charts.
“For the love of money is the root of all evil”
in 2003 "Girls can easily make 100K-250K per year, plus stuff on the side like strip shows and appearances. The average male makes $40,000 a year." and in 2008 "The average guy gets $300 to $400 a scene, or $100 to $200 if he's new. A woman makes $100,000 to $250,000 at the end of the year."
LOVE WITH A COST:
As a fireman might be burnt from an emergency call or a police officer might get shot on duty, well these perverts will get diseases from their employment that can harm them for life.
Between January 2003 and March 2005, approximately 976 performers were reported with 1,153 positive STD test results. Of the 1,153 positive test results, 722 (62.6 %) were chlamydia, 355 (30.8%) were gonorrhea, and 126 (10.9%) were coinfections with chlamydia and gonorrhea. Less is known about the prevalence and risk of transmission of other STDs such as syphilis, herpes simplex virus, human papillomavirus, hepatitis B or C, trichomonal infection, or diseases transmitted through the fecal–oral route. Of course these numbers are higher as this was taken from the legitimate (sic) performers with agent not the amatures.
“And if thy right eye offend thee, pluck it out, and cast it from thee: for it is profitable for thee that one of thy members should perish, and not that thy whole body should be cast into hell. And if thy right hand offend thee, cut it off, and cast it from thee: for it is profitable for thee that one of thy members should perish, and not that thy whole body should be cast into hell”
A few years ago there was a survey that asked “Which State Consumes The Most Online Porn?”
You really for the number one state…….drum roll please……the envelope please…….the loser is……
Utah……..followed by Alaska, Mississippi and Hawaii…….go figure?
WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME YOUR PASTOR PREACHED AGAINST MASTERBATION?
And we wonder why there is a problem within the Church, like parents that don’t talk to their children about sex, drugs and music, only to find out their children had been living it for years. No surprise there, we see those children on the streets and they don’t mind talking about those topics. But the clergy hides behind the “judge not” verse, you see if you don’t judge him on his adultery, he will not judge you with your porn and together they will not judge those that get drunk, who will not judge those fornicating. Until they meet us in the street, then ALL BETS ARE OFF and we love them in truth as per 1 John 3:18.
“He that justifieth the wicked, and he that condemneth the just, even they both are abomination to the LORD”
The clip below is from a ministry that promotes the love of God to the porno industry and they do not think to kindly of our method of public preaching:
Interview with Craig Gross pastor of xxx church
“Whoever is born of God does not commit sin; for his seed remains in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God”
TO BE FILED UNDER: “NEED I SAY MORE?”
“For the commandment is a lamp; and the law is light; and reproofs of instruction are the way of life: To keep thee from the evil woman, from the flattery of the tongue of a strange woman.
Lust not after her beauty in thine heart; neither let her take thee with her eyelids. For by means of a whorish woman a man is brought to a piece of bread: and the adulteress will hunt for the precious life.
Can a man take fire in his bosom, and his clothes not be burned? Can one go upon hot coals, and his feet not be burned? So he that goeth in to his neighbour's wife; whosoever toucheth her shall not be innocent. Men do not despise a thief, if he steal to satisfy his soul when he is hungry;
But if he be found, he shall restore sevenfold; he shall give all the substance of his house. But whoso committeth adultery with a woman lacketh understanding: he that doeth it destroyeth his own soul”
