So we are now closing the Hallelujah Love Series by Lutishia Lovely with, "Heaven Forbid." All of us have thoroughly enjoyed the plots, twist, and turns we have been taken on and will probably hate it when it is over or decide to read the series again!! With that, there have been several discussions generated from the series including the fact that the author writes about certain topics and themes within a church setting. What topics and themes you ask?? Adultery in the church, in the pulpit no less, bisexuality, and vivid sexual interactions. I am not sure how all of your churches may be, but in the churches I have attended, such themes were soooooo off limits, taboo and often just rumored about!! Church folk spreading rumors?? No, can't be?!?! Well folks, hate to be the bearer of bad news, but often times all this and more goes on in the "church" and more I assume. Which brings me to my question. What are your assumptions about the things that go on in the "church"? Are the previously mentioned themes within the church new to you? Do you know of others? And how do you feel about it? I believe that people in the church are just that..... "people". While it is assumed that all of them walk the straight and narrow, they are subject to the same temptations as people who are not in the church, or do not attend regularly, etc.. We all make mistakes. Oh, before I forget. Married people in the church often times have the same vivid, wild sex interactions as everyone else, maybe even better!! Shhhhh, you didn't hear it from me!!
Please leave your thought and comments below. Thanks!!
