Pastors to participate in 24-hour "sexperiment" on top of church
KPCL ^ | 11 Jan 2012 | KPCL

Posted on 01/12/2012 6:58:15 AM PST by Cronos

A Texas pastor and his wife known

for their frank talk on sex, religion and marriage are planning to spend 24

hours in bed on the roof of their church for everyone to see.

"For far too long, the church has kicked the bed out

and God out of bed," pastor Ed Young said.

At Fellowship Church in Grapevine, a bed is front and center

to explore the subject of sex within marriage.

"It's all about recognizing the importance of sex,"

his wife and fellow pastor, Lisa Young, said.

Ed and Lisa Young will not only be preaching about sex and marriage,

but this Friday they will also spend 24 hours in bed on top of their massive

Grapevine megachurch, encouraging married couples to have more sex.

"Basically the Bible says and God says I made love, so

you can make love in marriage," Ed Young said.p>

They are trying to help couples re-establish the special

bond many husbands and wives put on the back burner.

"I think for years people have carried their own sexual

baggage, into reading about sex in the Bible. They've only talked about the

don't do's, instead of the do's," Ed Young said.

Married almost 30 years with four children, the Youngs

believe sex connects, and ask couples to have sex for seven days in a row. They

call it "the sexperiment."

"This is about discovering intimacy," Lisa Young said.

Something they said their congregation was clamoring for.

"You actually said 'I want to challenge you with seven

days of sex.' The men stood and gave a standing ovation," she said.

The "sexperiment" is based on the Youngs' new

book, which looks at how fatigue, boredom and children can lead to marriage's

demise, and how more sex can rekindle connection.

"What we want to say is look there's a way to do, a way

to do it right… do it successfully," Lisa Young said.

The couple also shared personal ways to make your partner

desire more sex.

"We always like to say what God created is never

x-rated," Ed Young said.

The pastors said it is a gift from God, meant to please your

greatest love for a lifetime.

"We've looked at sex too casually. It's not a casual

thing, it's a profound thing, and it's definitely not a profane thing," Ed

Young said.

The couple's "sexperiment" will be streamed live

on the web.

Hmmmm....hasn’t our entire culture focused on the *eros* type of love almost to the exclusion of the *agape* type?

They are correct that sex is a gift from God to be shared with your spouse.

Not sure how streaming the two of them in bed has to do with that. Seems like they are trying to titillate instead of educate.

I predict a headache epidemic in the area.

Apostle Paul: “For I determined not to know any thing among you, save Jesus Christ, and him crucified.”

Ed Young: “I think for years people have carried their own sexual baggage, into reading about sex in the Bible. They’ve only talked about the don’t do’s, instead of the do’s.”

This “Pastor” has a large jet, opulent homes and jets around the world taking lavish vactions. All on his congregation’s dime. He also has a sermon series about sex for an entire month just about every year. He is just using sex to sell his brand of “religion” and is living large on the fruits thereof. “I never knew ye”.

Yeah that was my first thought.

Maybe the pastor and his wife look just like two gurus in drag, too.

Just curious ... to what extent does he address fornication, adultery, masturbation, pornography, contraception, homosexuality, abortion, and other perversions?

Oh yeah I forgot to add this to my last post:

I bet the “pastor” is A-ok with contracepting like crazy to prevent those pesky kids that may interfere with his sexcapades.

Sex is a subject that often is misunderstood by Christians. The whole book of “Song of Solomon” is just a love story. Often overlooked, but it tells us that love for one’s partner (married) is just plain ok. Sex was created by God and he knew what he was doing. Unorthodox method of presentation, but hardly false teachings.

Before everyone freaks out, watch the message.

This is my church and my pastor. Ed Young is a very conservative pastor and a conservative in general. A sound Biblical preacher.

Here, watch last weekend’s message and get a better perspective:

He addresses them soundly and scripturally, without compromise. Ed Young has an unconventional approach, but he does not “change” the message of the Bible in any way. He is a solid conservative preacher.

No abortion, no fornication, no homosexuality, etc. This sermon series is a call to sexual purity, God’s way, within marriage.

He is truly unique. I would not attend Fellowship Church if they did not adhere unwaveringly to Scripture.

I go to Second Baptist of Houston, Ed Young Sr presiding, his dad.

Last year when Ed Jr. announced the seven nights of sex, Ed Sr. said “We aren’t going to do that in this church. We’re going to do it for two weeks!”.

I wonder what he is going to come up with this year.....

Ed Jr. is a good pastor, very conservative and very much in His Word.

Why on the roof? Use the stage or altar area. What madness is this? Hope the roof is not a steep one..24 hours is a long time to stay in balance.

No, it’s about exhibitionism, and self-aggrandizement.
