Pastor, wife to spend 24 hrs on church roof 'sexperimenting'

By JohnThomas Didymus     Jan 7, 2012 in World
A pastor and his wife, founders of the Fellowship Church in Texas, plan to spend 24 hours in bed on the church roof next week and stream themselves live on Internet to promote healthy sex life among couples as prescribed in their book "Sexperiment."
Christian Post reports that Ed and Lisa want to “change the way people see the connection between God and sex...For too long, we have been falling for the world’s lies about what sex is. It’s time to get back to understanding the truth about this amazing gift – God’s truth!”
According to Ed Young, who has been married to his wife Lisa for 30 years: “Tragically, culture has kicked the bed out of church and God out of the bed. 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.”
During their church roof "sexperiment" session, Ed and Lisa will take part in a 24-hour "bed-in" that will be streamed on their book website. During the session, the couple will engage their audience on issues of sexual intimacy in marriage. The program will begin at 5 a.m. Friday, January 13. The Youngs will do interviews in person as well as via Skype and will be answering questions on their teachings about sex in marriage via Twitter and Facebook.
Christian Post reports Ed Young made headlines in 2008 when he announced his challenge to couples to have sex for seven straight days. According to Ed and Lisa, their book Sexperiment, is meant to encourage open discussion about sex and to make sex a priority in marriage. They say that God designed sex to forge a strong connection between husband and wife, and also with God. According to Ed: “God thought up sex. It was His idea. And it’s not just about procreation; it’s about recreation and enjoyment. The bed-in is about empowering couples to experience the relationship and recreation that God has for them every day of their lives!”
Sex, according to Ed and Lisa, is a special gift from God that is “emotional, physical, psychological, and above all, spiritual. Christians tend to think that sensuality is carnality, but in actuality it’s spirituality."
The authors explain the significance of the number seven in their prescription of "sex for seven days," saying that in the scriptures seven symbolizes wholeness, perfection or completion.
Christian Post reports that many Christian leaders have endorsed the book. Craig and Amy Groeschel of Life Church, said: “Ed and Lisa Young have modeled a Christ-centered marriage for over 25 years. Their straightforward, encouraging and practical teaching in Sexperiment will take your marriage to a greater depth of intimacy than you’ve ever known before.”
Ed and Lisa Young founded the Fellowship Church in 1990.
