Sex and Church. Northeast Ohio pastor Greg Nettle is getting national attention for provocative billboards and an accompanying Web site.

Nettle, the senior pastor of the nondenominational RiverTree Christian Church in Massillon and Uniontown, expects to be interviewed by NBC'sToday show today about the church's new teaching series on 'Pure Sex.'

'We're not afraid to talk about IT,' Nettle said on his blog (www.gregnettle.com). 'We put up ten billboards in the area that are an image of two sets of feet sticking out from under the sheets. All the billboards say is patheticsexlife.com. When you go to the Web site, you see a very cool flash video that asks questions about sex and then lets visitors know that RiverTree is going to be talking about how to have the best sex ever.'

This isn’t even Greg Nettle’s sermon series. Do some research and you’ll find he stole it from another pastor. You ought to also check with his wife and find out if he’s preaching something he can’t practice. This guy is all about attracting crowds to himself. Do your homework. Talk to his peers.

So this is Greg Nettle’s latest shpiel???? This guy is all about bringing attention to himself. He was going to reach Howard Stern for Jesus. He talked about one of the ladies in his congregation wanting to see him naked. Will this guy ever stop?

He won't stop. He loves Jesus and his messages are real, get-to-the-point, and honest. It's all about God here. Of course he wants to bring attention to the church. The church reaches out to others who do not know Jesus and it is a good thing a church is doing it (reaching out) rather than some destructive entity like the "pro-choice" groups.

He is not preaching God's word from the pulpit. He is using/marketing God with shock tactics. When you hear the truth from the pulpit as in the bible, the "dots are connected" with the Holy Spirit. This is not the work of the Spirit, but is carnal indeed.
