Porn star Ron Jeremy looked comfortable on stage with two pastors at a Michigan church on Sunday as he talked about sex and God.

Jeremy, who holds the world record for most appearances in adult films, had been invited to speak at Daybreak Church in Hudsonville as part of its "Exposed" series on sex, dating and marriage.

"We've always felt that consenting adults having consenting sex for consenting adults to watch is OK," he told churchgoers as he was being interviewed on stage by XXXChurch.com founder Craig Gross. "No one's going to agree with that here. I respect that."

Jeremy, who has been in more than 2,000 adult films, said he believes in God and that the same could be said for other actors in the industry.

"People in porn believe in God. It's not a one or the other thing," he said.

"I think a majority of adult performers in that industry (porn) do believe in God. We aren't sure about the name of God but we know that He's up there."

The 59-year-old actor cemented his belief in God after he and a former Pentecostal minister came away from a major car accident alive some decades ago.

While he has many friends who are pastors, including Miles McPherson, Jeremy continues to disagree with them when it comes to who goes to heaven and recreational sex.

"Would [Jesus] be so unfair and say you're not coming in (to heaven) because your parents didn't raise you right?" he asked, as he described how many people are raised by their parents under varying religions.

Differing with Christians on sex, Jeremy said he believes people can engage in both recreational sex and "making love." And when comparing his sex life (with more than 2,000 women) with that of Gross' (with one woman, his wife), he admitted that the pastor was likely having better sex "because you make love more; ours is more recreational."

After the interview, invited speaker Gross told churchgoers that everyone sins and is in need of a savior.

"It's easier for us to say 'at least I don't do that,' but all of us have those things that we struggle with," said Gross, whose ministry helps those addicted to porn. "This is not about making us in this church feel better today about ourselves. I think the message that we can get from this experience with Jesus is we're all capable of doing things that I know we'll regret.

"We all fall short every day. Jesus and the cross and the resurrection from the dead covers it all."

He also challenged the congregation not to write people off when trying to evangelize or introduce Jesus into their lives.

"Give everybody a shot ... Keep showing up in their life."

Daybreak Church is led by Wes Dupin, whose focus is on reaching the unchurched. The church touts a "creative and entertaining approach" to its services and a "come as you are" atmosphere. "No matter who you are, where you've been or what you've done, you are welcome at Daybreak!"
