Taboos are those things that we as a civilized and mature culture deem inappropriate, unacceptable, and prohibit in our dialogues. Every culture has taboos. In fact, one of my favorite shows on television is Taboo found on the NationalGeographic Channel.
Even the contemporary church has taboos that we simply don’t discuss. Take a look around the church, especially the periphery, and you’ll see and hear the taboos. In fact you might even find yourself face-to-face with a taboo.
Over the course of the week, I wanted to talk some of the taboos that haunt the shadows of our churches.
