"God gave me a Ferrari because I am a Ferrari. You're a Ferrari too. God has given you a Ferrari," he said.
For the past several weeks, Young has been trying to relay the message that though God has given everyone a Rolls-Royce or a Ferrari (one's body), many are not using it the way it's supposed to be used.
Read the entire article here.Telling his congregation that they are all like brand new luxury sports cars is akin to Joel Osteen telling his congregation that, "When God made you, He had all the options put on..." Remember, in this seeker-driven, prosperity gospel that these men preach, it is imperative that people be told how wonderful they are and how lost God is without them. To tell the truth--that we have all broken the laws of God and deserve to stand before Him in judgment and will be condemned without the shed blood of Christ to cover us--well, that would simply be too detrimental to people's self-esteem!
So Young used this motor-driven illustration to rev up his latest sermon series, "RPM: Relationships. Passion. Marriage." We shouldn't be surprised that Young has chosen to "preach" on the topic of relationships yet again. After all, this is the same Ed Young who, in 2008, issued a 7-day sex challenge to couples in his church. It's good to know that all of us who don't watch Oprah or Dr. Phil have another venue we can visit to learn about relationships - we can simply go to church. Oh, Lord, forgive us for giving a platform to men like Ed Young!
