To spread God’s grace to fellow christian suffuring from sexual and pornography addiction and lust.
By following the steps of recovery outlined in the 12 steps from the Breaking Free Booklet and 7 principles for the LIFE Guide, we as christian sufferers of pornography and sexual addiction will reestablish God’s grace and freedom from our sexual immorality.
To help fellow suffers of sexual addiction experience and embrace God’s grace in recovery.
In Recovery by God’s Grace, we are a fellowship of christian men who through prayer, discipline and obedience experience freedom from pornography and sexual addiction through God's never ending grace. Our fellowship follows catholic tradition and docturine but men from ALL religious backgrounds are welcome to join the group as long as they are comfortable joining a Catholic group.
The fellowship follows the St. Joseph's Freedom Group format. The group meets and discusses with confidentiality and compassion the developement of skills to control addictive sexual behavior. There are no dues or fees for membership; we are a self-supporting group through our own contributions. The group is loyal to the constant teachings fo the Holy Catholic Church that have come down to us from the Apostles.
We agree with the Catechism of the Catholic Church regarding - lust, masturbation, fornication and pornography, which states:
LUST - disordered desire for or inordinate enjoyment of sexual pleasure. Sexual pleasure is morally disordered when sought for itself, isolated from its procreative and unitive purposes.
MASTURBATION - to be understood as the deliberate stimulation of the genital organs in order to derive sexual pleasure. Both the Magisterium of the Church, in the course of a constant tradition, and the moral sense of the faithful have been in no doubt and have firmly maintained that masturbation is an intrinsically and gravely disordered action.
FORNICATION - carnal union between an unmarried man and an unmarried woman. It is gravely contrary to the dignity of persons and of human sexuality which is naturally ordered to the good of spouses and the generation and education of children. Moreover, it is a grave scandal when there is corruption of the young.
PORNOGRAPHY - consists in removing real or simulated sexual acts from the intimacy of the partners, in order to display them deliberately to 3rd parties. It offends against chastity because it perverts the conjugal act, the intimate giving of spouses to each other. It does grave injury to the dignity of its participants (actors, vendors, the public), since each one becomes an object of base pleasure and illicit profit for others. It immerses all who are involved in the illusion of a fantasy world. It is a grave offense.
Civil authorities should prevent the production and distribution of pornographic materials.
