The 5 Sins Most Pastors Don’t Like To Talk About

Here are five sins most pastors avoid talking about.

living together

This may be one of the most overlooked topics in today’s churches. Pastors may be afraid to say anything about unmarried couples living together because they know some will leave the church, but living together is only for those who are legally married. We must also avoid giving an image of evil (1 Thessalonians 5:22). Think about what the neighbors would say knowing that they are Christians and yet living together in sin. It destroys their testimony and makes others think that Christians are not separate from the world.


This may be the most overlooked sin in the Bible. Gluttony is listed among the so-called “seven deadly sins”, but is also mentioned in the New Testament (Titus 1:12). This is not judging people who are overweight because they may have good reason to be overweight. There are many reasons why a person may be overweight that have nothing to do with gluttony, but the gluttony I’m talking about occurs when a person already has a problem with their weight. But he indulges in food continuously.

tobacco and alcohol abuse

Too many Christians are taking to alcohol and cigarettes, and in many cases, this destroys their testimony for Christ. We are to honor our bodies, the temple of the Holy Spirit; But many pastors avoid the topic because they don’t want to offend the large number of church members who probably smoke and drink. Drinking is not a sin; Rather it is intoxication. But there is a fine line between Christian drinking alcohol and a little too much.


I remember reading about a man who came back from church and his mother-in-law asked what the sermon was about. He said, “Sin.” He asked, “What did the priest say about it?” “He is against it,” he said. We don’t often hear pastors preaching about sin because many people may be offended, but that should be all the more reason to preach about it, because we are to grow in the grace and knowledge of God. Even though we will never be sinless on this side of the kingdom, we should sin less than we did a year ago, five years ago, or even a decade ago.


What a painful subject to preach to most preachers, yet Jesus says many times that we are to give without expectation and give to others so that God may bless the giver. Interestingly, Americans earning less than $10,000 gave 2.3 percent of their income to religious organizations, while those earning $70,000 or more gave only 1.2 percent. so those who have less give more to those who have more [1], Some attend church and pay nothing, yet they and their children benefit from Sunday school, Bible study, track, and other materials that the church provides freely.


These topics are off-limits to many preachers today, yet pastors are called to use God’s word as a double-edged sword, cutting both the giver and the hearer (Hebrews 4:12). so that they may be well. And Christ will hold them (and me) accountable not only for what they preach but also for what they choose not to preach. We only need to fear God and not what any man thinks.

May God richly bless you,
