I’m always intrigued when I’m reminded of some of the background stories (context) behind the actual words of the Bible. John’s famous line “God is love” was born of out of a messy leadership conflict (1 John 4:8). Paul’s unifying dictum “you are all one in Christ” addressed social and racial tensions (Gal. 3:28).
People often think things that are creative, or even subversive, in
culture will be the newest or best things around - the type of ideas
that no one else has thought of. Risk and originality go against the
grain of what’s generally accepted as the norm.
