Skip to comments.Pastors to participate in 24-hour "sexperiment" on top of church
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
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?
So what’s the punchline?
Speak for yourself, "pastor" Young.
More craziness from the post-modern church, WHY can’t they just preach the Word, it would reach many more people!
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”.
"I've got your steeple, right here."
He looks like a creepy metro and/or homo
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:
Question for you in #18.
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.
Then why this stupid stunt?
Wow, really? It's so awesome that Christians have got you around to put them straight.
There is no Sarc tag large enough.
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.
presumably the entire congregation will go up above the church and televise the orgy?
Interesting video. Skinny jeans & botox with porcelain veneers.
Probably on the altar next?
‘”This is about discovering intimacy,” Lisa Young said.’
No, it’s about exhibitionism, and self-aggrandizement.
The Jews had Fiddler on the roof.
This guy goes them one better, Diddler on the roof.
“Really?... You think? “
PetroniusMaximus: Calling ‘em as he sees ‘em since 2003.
Also, it might be a bit cold, right?
“No abortion, no fornication, no homosexuality, etc”
Does the “etc” include contraception or is that one ok??
having sex on the roof of your religious meeting -house and televising it is unorthodox, yes....
Didn’t one of David’s sons have sex with his father’s wives and concubines on the roof, to show his scorn for his father?
1) You beat me to it.
2) WTH is ‘hair peace’???? Was John thinking about getting old and didn’t know his synonyms meaning, hair piece?
3) No link to the talented Yoko’s music? Believe it or not, she actually has a degree in music.
Gotta copy and paste this to my wife ,, It may work ;)
The answer to anyone who talks about the surplus population is to ask him, whether he is part of the surplus population; or if not, how he knows he is not. 
~~G. K. Chesterton
“We want to say there is a way to do it right.. a way to do it successfully”
I think most people know how to do it successfully, freaks.
“... it may work”.
No it won’t... but can’t blame you for hoping (LOL!)
That quote’s a keeper. Thanks for posting it.
This wouldn’t happen if they’d let priests marry. ;-/
