Pastor Mike Scruggs of White Oak, Ohio isn't your traditional preacher. He says that his church likes to focus on real situations and bring real solutions. He is all about pushing limits to connect with his congregation and in a recent series called 'Battle of the Sexes' he raised a few eyebrows with his choice of visual props, including a stripper pole!

Some may take issue with his choice of props, but on that particular night the stripper pole drew a packed house at the Light of Word Ministries. Scruggs is well aware that his sermons aren't the norm.

We try to make it relevant straight forward we don't sugar coat anything. We talk about sex we talk about drugs we talk about faith we talk about relationships things that people are dealing with on a day to day basis,

Pastor Scruggs also points out to his critics that his own mother attends his sermons and approves of his message. In addition to his visual props, he also promotes "Sexperiments," based on the book Sexperiment: 7 Days to Lasting Intimacy with Your Spouse, encouraging married couples to have sex for seven days straight to see "amazing results" that last far beyond the week.

Shame on me, but for some reason I can only visualize people 'makin it rain' when it came time for a monetary collection, lol.

Do you agree with Pastor Scruggs non-traditional technique, or is the sexual/stripper pole vibe too much for you to attend his church?
