Is sex gross? Is sex a god? Is sex a gift?
Mark Driscoll published this article on cnn.com in response to the criticism he and his wife received from the release of their Christian marriage and sex book. I don’t have much insight on the history of the criticism of Mr. Driscoll. However, I do know that sex is one of the topics guaranteed to draw both support and hatred in the institution known as the church. Sex is one of the areas God spoke quite a bit about in the Bible because He knew it would be an area of trouble in the lives of men and women trying to live in a perverse world.
I have had the opportunity to teach workshops, classes, and deliver sermons in the area of sex, and have felt the blunt of many critics who disagree on my conservative or liberal approach depending on which end of the spectrum you fall on. At the end of the day, this is an area causing much strife in the church and every week unmarried people are attending weekly church services after having sexual escapades during the previous week. Married couples are attending weekly church services with the embarrassment of adulturous experiences and/or pink elephant absent sex lives which potentially lead to future divorces.
PUBLICE SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT TO PASTORS: Stop operating in the comfortable and be willing to deal with REAL LIFE ISSUES…#thatisall!!

It’s both amazing and a blessing to see the transition of a new year. Some of you experienced trials and tribulations of life, while others of you had many instances and accomplishments to be celebrated. No matter where you fell in the spectrum, one thing is certain…you’ve been blessed to see another year.
As my Pastor mentioned during our Watch Night service, just because the clock strikes midnight doesn’t mean all of your problems will disappear. You cannot expect 2011 to be any different than your 2010 if you aren’t willing to make changes in your life. Start by giving your life over to Christ, renew your mindset, document the vision God has given you and implement the plan. That’s it!!
Don’t be afraid to things different in 2011 than you’ve done in previous years. Isn’t it time for you to experience something different? Don’t be afraid to try new things. Don’t be afraid to step out of your comfort zone. Don’t be afraid to meet new people. Don’t be afraid to give birth to new ideas. Most importantly…don’t be afraid to go hard!
Life is short, make the most of it!
