Porn star finds Jesus, leaves the porn industry

This is a testimony to God’s church in action. The founder of XXXChurch says they go to porn expos every year and after seven years of the women in this church ministering to Brittini Ruiz, she finally came to accept Jesus and left the porn industry.

Apart from Joy Behar asking “who funds your church” and “is it tax exempt”, it’s a great interview.

        Read once that years ago, a Russian Communist was conducting a propaganda tour of Russina teens. Pasrt of the tour – until this particular day – was a display of crucifixes and other Christian symbols. The guide commented, “Christians foolishly believe that God sent His Son from Heaven and let Him die on a cross for the sins of the world, since He had committed no sins Himself.”
        One of the teen girls spoke up, “THAT’S what I need! I need somebody to pay for my sins!” She became a believer on the spot and I suspect the poor guide wound up in Siberia.
        There are no limits on God’s power and ability.

A friend  says she wants to spend the first hundred years or so in Heaven listening to everybody’s story, because in every believer’s life there are stories like that, even though some believers may not be aware of them now.

          “Worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive power, and riches, and wisdom, and strength, and honour, and glory, and blessing.”
          “To Him who loved us and washed us from our sins in His own blood, and has made us kings and priests to His God and Father, to Him be glory and dominion forever and ever! Amen.”

      marketcomp I don’t know how this crowd does it, but here are some of the ways I heard about and participated in: “house churches” – just a couple of families of believers in Jesus getting together at someone’s house to study the Bible and pray. Witnessing on the streets. Witnessing at work. Witnessing in shopping malls, whether you’re shopping or not. Witnessing in classrooms if you’re a student. Witnessing to taxi drivers and bus drivers and carpool. Being a conscientious moral citizen and when someone asks you why, explaining. You help people who are in despair or need and when they ask you why – or maybe even when they don’t – you tell them why – because Jesus loves you, and at this moment, I am His way of showing you His love.

      A fellow I knew said he saw a contractor trying vainly to keep lumber in his pickup going uphill. Wasn’t happening, so this fellow volunteered to get on top of the lumber, bow his back against the camper top, and hold the load in place until they reached the hilltop construction site. My buddy said when he got out, as they started to unload the lumber, the driver grabbed him by the arm and yelled to the crew, “Hey guys, this is Jesus Christ!” My buddy replied, “No, but I work for Him.”
      Or you support missionaries who go where you can’t and do what you can’t.

      Just like the New Testament believers. Because in the end, everything is futile except this: Jesus is speaking: “He who believes in Me, though he were dead, he shall live!”
      In Heaven, no less. You have an invitaiton too, BTW, if you haven’t already accepted it.
      Oh yeah, commenting on blogs too. Almost forgot that one.  :>

    • pmyers1934

      marketcomp Like the early Christians did who had no physical buildings.  They go to those who need Christ wherever they are.  The word “church” does not mean a physical building.  It means the “called out ones” – referring to people saved by Jesus.

      • 57thunderbird

        pmyers1934 marketcomp Yup!

    • PoCoTex

      marketcomp  With our long tradition of a physical building to prove our trustworthiness, we forget that Yeshua the Messiah never had a physical building where people came to him. Virtually all of Yeshua’s proclamation of the Good News to the people of Yisra’el was outdoors, e.g., the Sermon on the Mount. He fed people outdoors. He constantly walked among all levels of society in Yisra’el at the time, in Yerushalayim and out. He called some of his talmidim who were fishers on the water.
      In fact, that’s one of the many of the reasons why most of the leading religious leaders of the time were so  deeply suspicious of Yeshua.

        marketcompLIBERTYUSA “The one who comes to Me I will not for any reason cast out.” (Jesus said that. Quoted in John 6:37)
        God could not care less about tattoos and fat. Jesus told a dying thief who had wasted his entire life, “Truly, I tell you, today you will be with me in Paradise!”
        Because “God so loved the world that He sacrificed His only Son, so that whoever believes in Him would not perish, but have everlasting life.”
        Because “The Son of Man came to seek and to save that which was lost.”
        Because “Those who are healthy do not need a doctor; those who are sick do.”
        “And the Spirit and the
        bride say, ‘Come!’ And let him who hears say, ‘Come!’ And let him who

    Brittini, if they haven’t told you already, there is wonderful good news in the Bible for those of us who were deep into sin that scarred our souls and left us terribly ashamed.
    The Bible says that if we confess our sins, God not only forgives us, He cleanses us from all unrighteousness. He erases the record of our sins and then pours ink on the record. He separates us from our sins as far as the East is from the West – north and south meet at the equator, but east and west never meet. He “casts our sins behind His back”. He “buries our sins in the deepest part of the sea”. He forgets our sins. In Heaven, He will not allow anyone to mention our sins to us. All these tings are quotes from the Bible. They’re not just “happy thoughts” that some dreamer cooked up.

    And that’s just the first part of the story. He loves you unconditionally. He adopts you into His family and promises that He will never leave you. He will be the kind of father to you that you’ve always needed. His Son has prepared a room for you in His house. It goes on and on, and gets better all the way.
    Welcome to the Kingdom, sister. I’m so glad you made it.

    • 57thunderbird

      lawngreen Amen and Amen!

      lawngreen Amen. There is no degradation so vile that Jesus won’t reach down and pull us out and cleanse us by His blood. Amazing grace!

    Folks…I wouldn’t just buy her story as of yet….she was recently on a escort service and she still has videos out on the market…When she shows me when she refuses a check from the industry..I’ll believe. As Dennis Miller says…no one comes to god on prom night its not until they horrible screw their life with drugs and alcohol..they look for god…if you saw some of the stuff she did on video and took money for and likely still taking money. You have to look that that church is a publicity seeking church..what is their angle on this…And its funny, you have those in that industry who been it all their lives and no problems but yet a person, sadly can’t control her demons but condemns a industry she worked in and escort for 6 years now, but now she see as evil! funny if you ask me

    • 57thunderbird

      ChiTownMackyD Most of us never recognized our sin until we came to a saving knowledge of our Lord.And I would be willing to bet that most of us came to that knowledge in a time that we were at our worst.The part about taking money for her videos I agree with.She may have no control over the marketing and distribution of her videos.That may be owned by the industry.

    Why did they censor the name of the church? But yet, they still identified it in the chyron. Seems silly to me.

    For all of you here who are a bit cynical about Ms. Ruiz’s new life in the Messiah, don’t forget that many people doubted the new life of Sha’ul Paulos (Paul the Apostle) when Yeshua grabbed him by the collar and gave him new lifeEven Hananyah (Ananias) was skeptical of Sha’ul:
    There was a talmid in Dammesek, Hananyah by name; and in a vision the Lord said to him, “Hananyah!” He said, “Here I am, Lord.” The Lord said to him, “Get up and go to Straight Street, to
    Y’hudah’s house; and ask for a man from Tarsus named Sha’ul; for he is
    praying, and in a vision he has seen a man named Hananyah coming in and placing his hands on him to restore his sight.” But Hananyah answered, “Lord, many have told me about this man, how much harm he has done to your people in Yerushalayim; and here he has a warrant from the head cohanim to arrest everyone who calls on your name.” But the Lord said to him, “Go, because this man is my chosen
    instrument to carry my name to the Goyim, even to their kings, and to
    the sons of Isra’el as well. For I myself will show him how much he will have to suffer on account of my name.” — Acts 9 (CJB) (emphasis mine)
    That the Adversary tried an attack on the XXXChurch through Joy Behar tells me that Ms. Ruiz is the real deal.
    Who am I to judge? In God’s eyes, I am just as much as a sinner as Ms. Ruiz, if not worse. Sha’ul Paulos called himself the “chief of sinners”!
    It is only by God’s favour towards us, that we did not earn, that we are born again from above and have eternal life.

    • pmyers1934

      PoCoTex Amen. I always love talking about Jesus with a Jewish believer in the Messiah! And you are so right – if it were not for God’s grace no one would know Him or receive salvation because no one deserves it.  We all deserve the opposite. I remember reading for the first time where Paul called himself the “chief of sinners” and I yelled out loud, No.  I am the chief of sinners. I expect that most born again believers see ourselves as the chief of sinners when we stand in the light of His holiness.
