I often hear this sentiment:
“It is our differences that make us unique and special. Imagine how boring it would be if everyone were the same.”
According to this wisdom–change is exciting; stuff that stays the same is boring. Which leads me to Hebrews 13:8, “Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever.”
Jesus stays the same and thus comes across as boring to many. The Church then has to be “culturally relevant,” which is just fancy wordage for “more exciting in more differenter ways.”
We’re embarrassed by our boring God. Perhaps our celebration of change and things being different has corrupted our notion of God.
If not, hey, just be glad that you’re more different than I am and how my stupidity adds to the excitement of your life. Amen.
