The Unhealthy Lust for Originality


"So all conscientious Christian teachers, once they have been delivered from the unhealthy lust for originality, take pains to make old truths new and stale truths fresh." - John Stott (via Jerusha Sheffer)


So true!
I believe one of the popular authors/counselors calls it the "Pride of Uniqueness".

Press on in faith and humility!

God commands to sing a new song, so originality like all things are not bad, but to have an unhealthy love and covetous heart for it, just like all things, is sin.
