Pastor Ed Young decided to do something you wouldn’t normally expect from a man of the cloth. The pastor and his wife Lisa took to the rooftop of his Mega Church to have what he calls a “sexperiment”.
He says he and his wife will stay in bed for 24-hours to encourage couples to have more intimacy. He urges couples to try and have sex for 7 days.
The pastor also has a book out which is also called “The Sexperiment”. In it he teaches married couples how to become more intimate and also teaches single people how become more open to love and commitment once they are ready to walk down the aisle. Proceeds for the book are going back to the church.
A Pike County, Kentucky church has banned interracial couples from becoming members of the church after Stella Harville brought her Zimbabwe-born fiance to the church last summer.

The Sudanese Church of Christ (SCOC) congregation in Omdurman West, across the Nile River from Khartoum, have faced continued attacks after trying to build a church in a region where the dominate religion is that of the Muslim faith. The Muslim population has stated that Christianity was no longer welcome in the country. “We do not want any presence of churches in our area,” shouted members of the mob as they threw stones at the Christians, the sources said. Muslims in the north fear the influence that the Christian Church will bring. “They want to reduce or restrict the number of churches, so that they can put more pressure on believers,” said a church leader on condition of anonymity. The SCOC has been trying to build a church on the land since it obtained the land in 1997. Government officials and area Muslim residents have used delay tactics to prevent it, according to a Christian who lives in the area.
