Taboo

Only recently have I begun to hear lessons on money; but “mind-you,” they are few and far between.

I’m generalizing but I don’t think I far off when I say money, power and sex are taboo subjects in the church. Pray tell me when you last heard a lesson on the evolution and effect of power-centers in the church?

Will you take on the taboos? When I say “take on” I mean “stand against” not “walk alongside.” The Christian community is here to destroy fortresses, not build them. We need to talk about power, money and sex.

Stick around at LHBC, Fred. You missed our first lessons on Hosea--Everything from sex, drugs, and rock n roll to perversity of the priesthood! All from a Biblical perspective, of course. There should be no topic that you cannot address in church, as long as you search your own heart for your motives for bringing the topic up. Sensationalism is not good for spiritual growth, but transparency is.
