Sex Talk In Church Is Wrong

Nothing makes me more tired than these "new" sex talk from the pulpit. First I find them unnecessary. We have survived millenniums without them, and second some things are not to be publicized. This video disgusts me.

I think I'd have to hear the rest of this guy's sermons to get the full picture, but I think he left some pretty important stuff out here.

I know why they do this, because in a sex-saturated culture even the church frequently doesn't know what sex is truly about, that it was created by God and should always glorify God. That said, if you're gonna present it, do it right.

Check into Piper's "Sex & The Supremacy of Christ" or "This Momentary Marriage: A Parable of Permanence" (both free online). Good stuff that naturally retains his ongoing thread of glorifying God in all we do and finding our joy only in Him, thanking Him for every godly pleasure He provides.

I think it is very important to teach sexual purity, especially to our youth.

Having said that, I believe this kind of thing is a bit over the top.

Sex Teaching should be biblical in it's presentation. However, most "sex talk" in church is an effort to evangelize by appealing to the sinners lusts. Disgraceful.

I definitely think that preachers should preach on sex. One cannot preach the whole counsel of God without it -- especially when one considers the bordering-on-adult-rated (by today's standards) Song of Solomon.

That said, I think it's ridiculous how the emerging church so often uses biblical sex-ed as a means to bring in people. Churches shouldn't advertise. Our obligation to the lost is to give them the gospel, not to draw them in to our gatherings -- there are likely plenty of lost people among our gatherings as it is.
