Pole Dancing for Jesus and Sex Challenge?

Ed Young's 7 Day Sex Challenge

Wimpy! Ed Young is calling for a 7 Day Sex Challenge. But, earlier this year Relevant Church had a 30 Day Sex Challenge. Either Ed Young and his followers in Texas don't have as much stamina as those folks in Florida OR maybe the length of the Sex Challenge doesn't matter.

30 Day Sex Challenge?

Relevant Church in Tampa, Florida is 'bravely' confronting one of the most pernicious problems of our day. They are going to solve the problem of "people NOT having enough sex". (This is not satire). They've launched a 30 day sex challenge and here is what their website says:
People are not having enough sex. An epidemic of breakups prove the needs that lead to a great sex life are being overlooked. Dirty dishes, frumpy clothes, and a lack of authentic connections are killing the romance. A great sex life is a challenge and takes focus, determination, and planning. Some say it’s an unrealistic goal, but we disagree. We believe you can have a great sex life, in fact we believe God wants you to have a great sex life.Relevant Church is proposing a challenge encouraging married couples to purposely engage in sexual activity for 30 days and singles to intentionally forgo sexual activity for 30 days.

Below is the graphic that is posted on their site for this 'sex challenge' and their YouTube promo video.

Is this why Jesus came to earth, sweat drops of blood, was scourged, nailed to a cross, hung naked and bleeding with a crown of thorns on His head and died?

1Cor. 2:1 And I, when I came to you, brothers, did not come proclaiming to you the testimony of God with lofty speech or wisdom. 2 For I decided to know nothing among you except Jesus Christ and him crucified.
