Pornography is America's "spiritual ISIS" that can turn people into depraved extremists and is an ongoing and constant attack against Americans, according to a Christian ministry which reaches out to troubled and trafficked youth worldwide.

In an interview with the Christian Broadcasting Network, All Things Possible Ministries founder Victor Marx shared how they had decided to book a display at an international adult film conference in Las Vegas. They decided to get a booth there as a group helping children affected by the Islamic State, but they discovered that many of the actors and young girls in the porn industry were subjected to sexual abuse.

ATP was able to reach out to some young people struggling with trauma and distributed free movies, books, and stories of redemption to those who came to their booth. While they encountered no opposition from sex workers who stopped by, their fellow Christians were the ones who criticized them for infiltrating the adult film industry.

Marx, who has helped rescue children from ISIS territories, explained that they were just sharing their light to others, as Jesus did to sinners. He also revealed that tens of thousands of people prayed and fasted for their activity before they set foot at the conference.

"Pornography is the spiritual ISIS of America," Marx told CBN. "It's able to infect, and message, and make people become extremists in depravity and loss of natural affection...Pornography is a 24/7 attack against Americans. Even Christians in the church."

J.S. Park, who is connected to XXX Church, an online ministry which helps people with porn and sex addiction, said a person must be honest with one's needs and flaws if he or she wants to be delivered from addictions. He suggested for these people find a way to serve others or do something that entails sacrificing their resources so that they will be able to discover the purpose of their lives instead of trying to find it through their addiction, Christian Today reported.

Pastor Tim Swanson, who shared his fight against porn addiction, said shame held him back and caused him to believe that he was a mistake. However, he was able to break away from his shame by starting to obey what the Bible says.
