Most preachers have topics they like to avoid or at least tread lightly around. After all the point of preaching is not to drive people out of the pews but to keep them there and keep them wanting to come back. Unfortunately, in a culture where everything is politicized, the list of hot-button topics is getting pretty long which makes it hard to avoid such topics since they start to intersect with just about everything in the Bible. A few that come to mind: abortion, contraception, marriage, transgender, immigration, and even the slightest mention of “he who shall not be named”.
