Adam and Eve Were in the Garden by Pastor Ed Young
The goal of Genesis 1 is for us to be fully human. That’s huge to download that. That’s God’s goal—for us to be fully alive, to hit on all cylinders, to experience an abundant life. That’s what Genesis 1 is driving at. The goal is for us to be fully human. When Adam and Eve were in the Garden, they didn’t run behind some bushes and make love for the first time, and then emerge and say, “Hey God! Guess what we did? It’s incredible! Guess what we discovered?”
And God didn’t say, “Whoa! You can do that? The parts fit? I had no idea!” It didn’t happen that way. Sex begins in heaven. God thought it up. He’s the designer. Our God is pro-sex. Sex is primarily for pleasure and secondarily for procreation. If you have a problem with us talking about it in church, you, my friend, have a problem with God. It’s time to get the bed back in church and the church back in the bed. But for far too long, we’ve taken the bed out of the church and kicked the church (like Chuck Norris does) out of the bed.
Why do we have this weird vibe? Why do we get all nervous and tense when we talk about sex, especially in church? I can tell a lot of you are wigged because this bed is on stage. Some of you are saying, “Wow! That statement you made, Ed, I’m not sure about that. Sex starts between the ears before it goes between the legs? I’m not sure about that. I just don’t like that. I have a problem with that. I have a push-back to that.”© Copyright 2012admin, All rights Reserved. Written For: Ed Young Fellowship
