This might offend somebody, but since nobody reads the Grenz anymore, I am going to risk it because it is as funny as all get out.

I know a pastor in NJ whose church is doing a big marketing push right now for a sex series they are going to be starting. They have set up the website I linked to. They have billboards and have sent out 50,000 mailers. He reports that they have received about 10 complaints about this series, including one that said:

""I am a god-fearing, Christian woman who would never look at this stuff. I read my bible and know God doesn't appreciate this. As a god honoring person I demand that you take my name the hell off your god-damned mailing list!!!!"

i read by the way....

i love this... so glad this church is stepping out of the box. why oh why is the church so afraid to talk about something that was created by God? something so beautiful.... that has been SO absolutely messed up by the world... i would say it is the one thing that messes up so many people... porn, anorexia (trying to live up to all the "sexy" women in magazines, on t.v.), adultery, divorce... the list goes on and on.... it must be hugely important to God, because the enemy uses it SO MUCH to destroy people... why are we not seeing that? why are we not talking about it? it's such a taboo subject... i have already started talking to my nine year old about it.... we went the medical route (for now at least, showing her pictures, etc.) she was absolutely amazed that God would make our bodies that way... we can't wait to talk to our kids about this... it is something so natural and amazing that God created. it has to be a natural part of our talk with our kids or they will grow up thinking it's something they can't talk about with us, so they'll talk about with their friends, which is SCARY these days... my oldest has come home with some bizarre things to say...

anyway, sorry for the long comment... this is something, as of late, that i am passionate about. i believe we are SO screwed up when it comes to sex, and it can screw up so many things... i just don't get why we feel we can't talk about it. it IS NOT a dirty little secret... it is the most amazing thing God created to bond a husband and wife.

okay... i'm done.

okay, here's what freaks me out the most...Raising a son in this culture! Especially when this guy is already the most popular kid in his class and little ponytailed girls cross the street just to walk with him...He has a double portion of charm from his father and his grandfather. YIKES. He'd already do anything to stop his sister from crying...what's he gonna do with some doe-eyed blondie????

calm down Ness...besides, it's not like it's really any better raising adorable girls--that's a whole other set of fears! Esp. with the era desperate to teach our girls that sex is meaningless so they can be "equal" to men, which in turn degrades them....OH!DON'T GET ME STARTED!!! It's about time for the church to really step up--think about how common sexual crimes are now---do you feel safe? the church has to address the issue and stop acting like we should be Bible-smackin', snake handling, marry yer cusin, sex is the original sin bunch of backwood hicks....sorry, now I'm rambling badly

Nothing. HER sex life stinks so she's probably feeling bitter and didn't want any more reminders about it.

I'm Tammi. I lurk your blog and read it regularly. :)
