OVER the years of writing this column it has always been the policy to be non-controversial, but in these days it may become increasingly more difficult to do that.
Quite often we can say or do something that until recently would have been all right but now we have to be extremely careful in case our actions or words are construed as meaning something completely the opposite to what we really mean.
In the Bible, we read that Jesus did or said many things that appeared to be controversial to His hearers and watchers. This was particularly true when He challenged the Religious Leaders because of their non belief of Him as being the Son of God sent from Heaven above.
Eventually this would lead Him to be crucified on the cross at Calvary, but He went there because He knew that was what He had come to do.
He came to die in our place so that we might experience the Love of God in all its fullness.
To many this can be controversial, but it is something that can bring us peace, love, joy and eternal life.
