Stop Pandering

Churches, it seems, will do anything these days to ‘attract’ hearers.  Including spending a lot of time talking about sex.  Sex sells, and churches are selling themselves as places where sex is the hot topic.

New Day Church, a year-old congregation in Hendricks County, Ind., is finding that sex helps sell its message of faith. An edgy marketing campaign asking, “What happens when God gets between the sheets?” promotes a sermon series that started Sunday focusing on the link between sex and religion.

Oh come on.  Such transparent efforts to seem chic or interesting are ridiculous.  It’s the Gospel that transforms lives, not talking about sex non stop.  Sex education isn’t the purpose of the Church: worship, evangelism, fellowship, and service.  Those are the purposes for which the church exists, not to entice people into the sanctuary with titillating conversation.

Sex belongs in the confines of marriage.  If your church, or the church you’re attending, is preaching anything else, get out of that Sodom.  Churches that believe they’re doing some sort of good deed by acting as though the only thing worth discussion is copulation and ejaculation and orgasm are nothing more than little blotches of theological ignorance spotting the bum of human culture.

Get your mind out of the gutter, and start focusing on something besides bodily functions, you reprobates.

    They probably just have a literal reading of Ezekiel 23, without the context and meaning.

    Another important purpose for the church is Prayer according to the scripture and God His house should be a house of Prayer.
