Get insight, advice, and encouragement from our community of writers on the topics of porn addiction and sexual integrity.
XXXchurch was one of the first organizations that took on the problem of pornography head on, even when others chose to ignore it. Twenty years later, despite the fact that others have joined in this effort, online pornography use and addiction continues to rise. Clearly we’ve missed the mark.
It’s time to stop blaming the porn industry for our problems. Legislation and pointing fingers doesn’t work. Society and church culture continues to foster a “don’t ask, don’t tell” environment. where we don’t welcome these conversations because they are uncomfortable and challenging.
It’s time for a change.
We need to shift culture so that anyone can pursue healing without fear of marginalization or being looked down upon. It’s time to recognize that we all hurt and need help, and the only real difference is the type of pain we are dealing with.
XXXchurch is here to be that voice of change while providing places and resources needed to aid those struggling and in need of help today.
XXXchurch is a ministry project of Live Free Ministries, a 501C3 nonprofit started by Carl Thomas who is an ordained pastor and Nationally Certified Neuro Health Coach.
Carl spent 17 years in the for-profit sector before transitioning to full-time ministry to help individuals who feel trapped and stuck by their pornography use. His knowledge and advice come from his own twenty years of experience as a former porn addict and freedom seeker.
After seven years of building and leading Small Groups Online, an online recovery-focused small groups program, Carl launched Live Free Ministries and created the Live Free Community App to help bridge the gap between millions of men who want help but lack the safe and supportive community needed to find real freedom. Later he also launched Live Free Wives, a free support community, for spouses who need help as well.
Carl’s passion for helping individuals find freedom, peace, and purpose is only matched by his New Jersey directness, love for family, devotion to Philadelphia sports teams, and infatuation with his white Jeep Wrangler.

We are tired of seeing leaders tackle difficult topics with kid gloves. It’s time to go bare knuckles and punch this thing in the jaw.
It’s not enough to…
“Recognize” that we have a problem.
Just talk about the need for restoration.
Simply point out the elephant in the room.
We’ve seen enough of this already and it ain’t working.
No, there needs to be a solution if we are going to identify the problem or it’s just apathy cloaked in lip service.
This is why our mission is to both be a leading voice of change and a source for help. In your face, yes… but with the ammunition to back up our cause.
In a nutshell…
We will call it like we see it.
Say what needs to be said.
Not aim to offend, but if it happens so be it.
Because nothing changes if nothing changes.
XXXchurch.com realizes that sex and porn addictions are real problems and people need real help. We use the web, social media and news media to tell a story often left untold. We are here to…
It may not be popular or convenient, but we are here to talk about the realities of sexual addiction, porn use, and the cloud of shame that’s been unnecessarily created around these topics.
We are creating a place for anyone and everyone where they can seek healing and freedom. A safe community that stands ready to help where all conversations are welcome and nothing is off the table.
We’re committed to helping people find the support and instruction they need. We work hard to plug people into the communities and resources required for true life transformation.
