On Being Offensive...

May 28, 2016


I'm writing a book on Genesis (the biblical one) right now, and I can see that some of it will be offensive, if not highly, to some people. Particularly those I grew up with in the Southern Baptist church.


So, I'm thinking a lot about the nature of "offense" these days. And this is one of the first places I've landed:


It's okay to be offensive, when the reasons for the offense are strong, heart-felt, and well thought out.


What doesn't work is when someone is offensive just for the sake of being offensive, because he, or she, is:

                    1) Bored as a Writer

                    2) Not Good as a Writer

                    3) Lazy as a Writer, or

                    4) All of the Above


Therefore, if your heart is in it, and you truly believe the world is going to need to hear this. . . in spite of not wanting to. . . then, go forth and offend.
