What We're Not Going To Do
There is one thing we will not be discussing. We will not be addressing the politics or legality of pornography. Trying to deal with these matters through legislation or the courts will not help the problem. This conference isn't going to deal with whether or not someone has the right to view this material or to produce it. That is not our purpose.
For many years, the church engaged in political activities and courtroom battles in attempt to stem the tide of pornography that floods our nation. Obviously, that was unsuccessful. It has become ingrained in our culture and is more of an issue for the church than it has ever been. Using these tactics changed nothing and may have even been counterproductive.
It is the role of the Church of Jesus Christ to bring freedom from sin through His redemption and His Word. We're not talking about taking porn or sexual sin away from anyone. It's about drawing people away from their sin. The fundamental message of the Gospel is where we have our real power.
Our purpose is to equip the local church, families, and individuals to overcome the evil of pornography and the rise of the acceptance of sexual immorality in the church.
