Just had to share this quick blurb about a church that is attracting members with sex.Â This is a new approach coming from the leading proponent of abstinence, shame, and sexual matyrdom in the name of God.Â New Life Fellowship in Orange Park, Florida,Â which opened just a few months ago next to a pizza parlor, has launched a series of sexy billboard ads with the title “Pure Sex God’s Way”, featuring itsÂ series of sermons about enjoying sex as God intended.Â
Â The church’s pastor, Bob Morro, says, “”We’re giving people the way God created sex for us, and what his intentions for sex are. It seems like the world has lost its value of sex nowadays. STDs are up, divorce is up and we just want to show them God has designed sex. He wants us to have great sex, but he wants us to have it in his parameters.”
Â Their approach has evidently been working because membership has increased enough for them to be looking at land for a larger church.Â
This isn’t a rant – it might even be good that they’re talking about it (unless they’re advocating abstinence in place of birth control or other such nonsense, which the article didn’t specify).Â That said, add this to the never-ending muddle of biblical interpretation.Â If nothing else, it made me laugh.
