THIS IS CREEPY


THIS IS CREEPY

When I heard Ed Young and his wife were going to spend 24 hours on top of their church in bed together the first thought I had was “creepy.”   I don’t care if he is trying to promote that sex is a virtuous thing for married people.  I know they had their clothes on.  But some things are just going too far.

My biggest concern is that some churches have forgotten the real essence of what the kingdom of God is to be.  God created sex.  He sanctions it in marriage. It is not anything to be ashamed of.  But the gospel not sex is what the world needs.  The church should not stoop to ridiculous publicity stunts to promote the truth.

 

Paul says, “Unlike so many, we do not peddle the word of God for profit. On the contrary, in Christ we speak before God with sincerity, like men sent from God.”  (2 Corinthians 2:17 NIV)  The word of God is to be preached not marketed, or promoted. It is not a scheme. It is the truth of God and should be presented with proper respect.

“For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God. For it is written: “I will destroy the wisdom of the wise; the intelligence of the intelligent I will frustrate.” Where is the wise man? Where is the scholar? Where is the philosopher of this age? Has not God made foolish the wisdom of the world? For since in the wisdom of God the world through its wisdom did not know him, God was pleased through the foolishness of what was preached to save those who believe.” (1 Corinthians 1:18–21 NIV)
