Ed Young is one sick puppy


This guy is beyond nuts…

Ed and Lisa Young, founders of Texas-based Fellowship Church, will spend 24 hours in bed on the church roof next week and stream themselves live on the Internet to encourage married couples to see firsthand the power of a healthy sex life as prescribed in their new book, Sexperiment.

Two days after their book, Sexperiment: 7 Days to Lasting Intimacy with Your Spouse, is released Tuesday, the Youngs will take part in a 24-hour “bed-in,” which will be streamed on the book’s website as they engage the audience on issues related to intimacy in marriage. The book encourages married couples to have sex for seven straight days – a challenge that made headlines in 2008 when Pastor Young first introduced it to his church – with the promise that the “amazing results” will last far beyond the week.

“Tragically, culture has kicked the bed out of church and God out of the bed,” says Ed Young, who has been “happily married” to Lisa for almost 30 years. “It’s time to bring God back in the bed and put the bed back in the church. That’s what this bed-in is all about.”

Throughout the 24-hour period beginning at 6 a.m. Friday, Jan. 13, the Youngs will do live interviews in person as well as via Skype, answering relationship questions and highlighting their most popular teachings about sex and relationships live via Twitter and Facebook.

  1. Wow…once upon a time, the sins of the religious leaders were done in back rooms and shadows, now that that ugly pest called shame has been silenced, they can do everything right out in the open…

  2. Ed Young clearly has a sex obsession

  3. I’m sure the Ed Youngs have to go a little further than the Mark Driscolls to sell more books on marriage/sex, & this is the crazy result! The Driscoll’s book just happened to come out at the same time.

  4. Is this a way to try to sell more books than Mark Driscoll?

  5. This behaviour would be bad enough anywhere……but ON THE CHURCH ROOF?
    Sounds like they are putting their lives at risk in more ways than one. Ananias & Sapphira come to mind.

  6. After reading this I recollected that some time back there was posted on a blog, maybe this one, a couple of video clips to show something about what is going on in the emergent church movement. One was a “worldly” song and dance routine that gripped the human soul. The second one was the “same worldly song’s music with “christian” lyrics done at Rick Joyner’s fellowship/worship hall. The music was the same music and the actions of these people being video taped was exactly like the worldly video! It was memorizing to the human soul to watch. It was nevertheless haunting in nature as you were being sucked into that familiar spirit that was at work through these supposed “spirit filled” Christians.

    I sense the same kind of thing happening with a familiar spirit here stroking the Youngs by them doing this stunt on the roof top of the church building as John Lennon and Yoko Ono did years ago when they produced their famous documentary on sex by staying in bed for a week, I believe?

    Jesus clearly warned about this sort of thing happening and so did the early Apostles in their writings that in the last days this sort of stuff would happen. Really, this sort of thing has been going on from the very beginning as God has allowed idolatry its place among the faithful. It believe the instant nature of what is going on is making it more apparent and available for consumption than in the days of horse and buggy and writing out messages long hand. The emergent church media forums just make this stuff more apparent and readily available to a larger audience, those with internet access, computers and cell phones and 24 cable access to this sort of stuff.

    I am not now nearly as concerned with this sort of stuff as I was before, as the Holy Spirit has helped me take a step back and He has given me a sense and some insight into what has been happening already and what will continue to happen more frequently as others see this stuff with these Words from 1 Peter:

    1Pe 5:5 Likewise, you who are younger, be subject to the elders. Clothe yourselves, all of you, with humility toward one another, for “God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble.”
    1Pe 5:6 Humble yourselves, therefore, under the mighty hand of God so that at the proper time he may exalt you,
    1Pe 5:7 casting all your anxieties on him, because he cares for you.
    1Pe 5:8 Be sober-minded; be watchful. Your adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour.
    1Pe 5:9 Resist him, firm in your faith, knowing that the same kinds of suffering are being experienced by your brotherhood throughout the world.
    1Pe 5:10 And after you have suffered a little while, the God of all grace, who has called you to his eternal glory in Christ, will himself restore, confirm, strengthen, and establish you.
    1Pe 5:11 To him be the dominion forever and ever. Amen.

    The more and more I study the Old Testament under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit and see how Satan and his minions have worked in and among God creation, among the Church and among fallen humanity, in this present heavens and earth, the more and more I am convinced God will indeed save His Elect known before the foundation of the world and before the beginning of time out of it.

    When one steps back and sees the larger picture, the realization of what it means to stay sober-minded and watchful becomes clearer. We need our focus on God and what the Holy Spirit is doing. I use to focus on “the adversary and what he is up too and is doing in the world”. Now my focus is more on God and what He is up too and is doing in the world! Now my focus is on restoration, confirmation, strengthening and being established in the Truth which is what God promises His children He will do for them “after” having to have suffered a little while because of the schemes of the adversary.

    What better way to come to know our adversary than to have to suffer at his hands a little while and all that suffering is not for naught because just as Peter came to realize, “after you have suffered a little while, “THE GOD OF ALL GRACE, who has called you to His Eternal Glory in Christ, “WILL HIMSELF” restore, confirm, strengthen, and establish you!

    Wow. That is something My God with His Gospel of the Kingdom can do through Christ for me and you and for everyone who are the Called and Elected sojourning through this fallen world today!

    This in no way takes away from just how shameful this thing is that the Youngs believe they are to do for their followers! This thing really is a shameful thing and hopefully someone will have enough courage to confront them for doing it?

  7. What do the people want to hear about?

    Sex, finances, child rearing, marriage, careers, politics.

    Jesus is just a nice backdrop to the Paganism of many Americans. Now all of the above are good but why do we obsess? Paul preached the Gospel and everything else was in passing.

    No one wants to read the Scriptures, as a nation Americans are ignorant. Books on sex, success, politics and self-help fly off the shelf. No one wants to know the simple truth that Christ, in HUMILITY, came for us, His terribly corrupted creation. Is that not enough?

    *steps off soap-box*

Music from Broken Chords

Down in the human heart, crush'd by the tempter, Feelings lie buried that grace can restore; Touched by a loving heart, wakened by kindness Chords that were broken will vibrate once more. From the Hymn "Rescue the Perishing" by Fanny J. Crosby
