Funny thing. The two topics that arouse the mostpassion in people ironically are the two topics thatthe church has the hardest time talking about. Isn’tthat odd? ’Tis said that sex and money make theworld go ’round, and not just the world of non-Christians. Believers need to be wise about sexand money, too.What makes it so hard to talk about these thingsin church? Well, let me tell you from personalexperience that it is hard to talk about humansexuality in morethan a verygeneral way whenthereare lots of children around.Money talk is hard for different reasons. St. Paul toldTimothy long ago that some people figured out thatreligion could be a means to financial gain. Thechurch has always been plagued by religious hustlers,apowerful turnoff to inquirers, visitors, and newbelievers. Money talk often happens in terms of 
institutional
needs (“the congregation is running adeficit and needs you to pony up so we can keep thelights on”) instead of in
worship
terms.Perhaps the biggest cause of pew resistance to moneytalk is that, as Dr. Martin Luther said once, the walletis the last part of a person to be converted. It costsyou nothing to shout “Hallelujah.” But if you giveGod some of 
your
money, then you think you haveless to spend on yourself.The Bible has plenty to say about sex and even moreabout money matters. The book of Proverbs inparticular is a gold mine of wisdomabout gold. I think you’ll be surprisedat some of the insights. Come on in.Pastor Mark Jeske
