Churches and Marital Relations

Indiana Church Behind Provocative Sex Billboard - FoxNews.com

Church Tries to Ignite Married Couple's Sex Lives - ABC News

As I have blogged about previously: Here are the stories of a couple more churches making news because of their sermon series regarding marital relations. The last ones I posted about were in the UK.

I wonder what effect this will have on the culture long term.  Will they change their views about the church's theology and belief about married sex?  I'm sure many evangelicals are embarrassed by these churches.  Yet, the way that media outlets report on them, they still view the church as having the destructive, dysfunctional puritanical attitudes that were dominant in Christendom from the Middle Ages to as recently as the 20th century.  They're still surprised to hear such a positive message from the church, or to hear anything at all.

Christianity has preached a lie about marital relations for years or just been silent, and even to this day the wider culture still thinks we hold to those untruths. The culture still thinks that the church believes that sex is bad, dirty, something to avoid, only for procreation, etc.  I wonder if it will help the spread of the Gospel with the church having a different (hopefully more Biblical) message on sex.
