Ed Young

Eph 5:6 Let no one deceive you with empty words, for because of these things the wrath of God comes upon the sons of disobedience.
Over at Slice of Laodicea, Ingrid reports:

Ed Young: Have Sex 7 Days Straight!

"The moral and political apocalypse all around us in America hasn’t dampened the libido of Pastor Ed Young in Grapevine, Texas (suburb of Dallas). The media is busy reporting on how Barack Obama will be overturning the ban on stem cell research and forcing taxpayers to pay for abortions, and how the gays are now marrying in Connecticut and rioting in California, but Ed Young is bringing a bed to church, and he plans to be sitting on it, on “stage”, when he issues his challenge. This is how Christians are making headlines in the secular news while the leftist machine implements spiritual and political change."

"P.S. While Mr. Young plans his sex-a-palooza at his church, he is completely unconcerned about his repeated hosting of Word of Faith, Trinity-denying heretic, T.D. Jakes. Doesn’t this say it all? They’re not teaching Christian doctrine in churches—they’re teaching sex, and look at the heresy this has allowed in the door. Here’s an idea, Ed. Have your congregation read the Bible for 7-days straight. The only problem is, they’ll leave your church!"

Thoughts when I read this:

*Someone so obssessed with sex tells me that they've likely got sexual sin going on. God will shed light on Young's secret sins in due time, just as He did with Swaggart, Bakker, Haggard, the RCC, etc.

*This sure puts a new twist on "strange bedfellows".

* Whoring around with doctrinal error is just as bad as sexual immorlity.

* What do the single people do during their "sex" I mean "church" services? If he talks to the whole "church" on this topic, then he is causing many professing Christians to stumble into sin.

Clearly he is concerned only with the things of the flesh and earth.

Jud 1:4 For certain people have crept in unnoticed who long ago were designated for this condemnation, ungodly people, who pervert the grace of our God into sensuality and deny our only Master and Lord, Jesus Christ.
Jud 1:12 These are blemishes on your love feasts, as they feast with you without fear, looking after themselves; waterless clouds, swept along by winds; fruitless trees in late autumn, twice dead, uprooted; Jud 1:13 wild waves of the sea, casting up the foam of their own shame; wandering stars, for whom the gloom of utter darkness has been reserved forever.
Gal 5:13 For you were called to freedom, brothers. Only do not use your freedom as an opportunity for the flesh, but through love serve one another.
2Ti 3:12 Indeed, all who desire to live a godly life in Christ Jesus will be persecuted, 13 while evil people and impostors will go on from bad to worse, deceiving and being deceived.

I live in the Dallas/Fort Worth area and Ed Young's church is about 20 miles from my home. The sad thing is that three of our local TV stations picked up this sermon series. One station showed him on stage with a huge bed behind him. Another showed a toilet on stage and the TV anchor had to explain that the toilet was part of a skit...she couldn't explain why. My heart grieves over such blasphemy. So many pastors are trampling under foot the Son of God...

Wendy,

Its pitiful. Young is just a copy-cat though. He's hardly original, even if he thinks he is. Its a horrid trend, but more and more Emergent type churches are having series on sex. Its like these "churches" have beamed back to the days of immoral Corinth and think they're cute, cutting-edge, and entertaining.

God's wrath is coming!

Yes, God's wrath is coming!
And 'Pastor' Ed is concerned about people being worried about the economy? So instead of taking them to Scripture to trust in Him, Ed says they are to seek comfort in the flesh!

Marriage and it's particular comforts are all good in their place.

But ALL the people in the congregation should receive the same message and the one solution, that each can respond to, if called.

And that message is REPENT!

Then the Holy Spirit will be the Comforter with an eternal comfort!
