We Don't Talk About That

WE DON'T TALK ABOUT THAT: Sex

February 8, 2015Randy Christian

Ok, almost everyone talks about sex. TV, movies, the news, schools—and yes, churches. But what do we actually talk about? Too often churches’ discussion of sex is limited to “Don’t” or “Don’t tell me”. Pretty lame considering how powerful a part of peoples’ lives this is. What does the Bible say about sex and sexuality, and what does the church need to be telling people?

WE DON'T TALK ABOUT THAT: Privacy

February 1, 2015Randy Christian

No one talks about privacy—except to complain about when we feel ours is being invaded. We know we have a “right” to privacy. We become very uncomfortable when others get too close—or even if we get too close to others. But what is too close? Does the Bible recognize a right to “privacy”? We need to talk about it to find out what scripture says!

Almost everyone knows someone—even loves someone—who suffers addiction. In fact, on any given Sunday many people in worship services themselves suffer addiction. Yet we rarely talk about it. Is it a disease? Is it a sin? How should we respond to it? On this Sunday we look at what scripture says about addiction.

WE DON'T TALK ABOUT THAT: Domestic Violence

Even “non-football fans” probably have heard the problems the NFL has had because of the domestic violence incidents involving their players. A new public service announcement shows players wanting to talk about it, but feeling very uncomfortable doing so. Like most other people. This shouldn’t apply to those who belong to Jesus. So today we explore what scripture says about Domestic Violence.

WE DON'T TALK ABOUT THAT: Racism

January 11, 2015Randy Christian

Churches are known for talking about certain things—and apparently for NOT talking about certain things. There are issues in our society that are all over the news and Facebook, yet are rarely discussed from the pulpit. Why is that? Is it that the Bible doesn’t address these things? Is it fear of what people will say or do in response to these issues? Whatever the reason—or excuse, it isn’t good enough. The light of the Word needs to shine, even if what it shows us makes us feel uncomfortable. So, we being a brief series called “We Don’t Talk About That” with the hottest topic in the news today: Racism.
