Is it any wonder why people have difficulty coming to a faith?
Playing a new game is mostly about learning the rules. The excitement of winning and losing is delayed until the rules are learned and/or agreed upon by everyone who plays. Once the rules become second nature, a love or hate for the game begins to develop.
Do you ever find yourself cheering against a team simply because of obnoxious fans? When it comes to your team, business, or maybe even faith are you obnoxious?
Having passion embraces what is good about your team. Being obnoxious embraces what's bad about the others.
