Ordinary is not the same as mediocre (as we will see in chapter two of our book on 3.31.15).
In fact, have you noticed that when the church attempts to harness the so called extraordinary in her methods, Christians look mediocre at best? After all, who other than mediocre believers would find hefty middle-aged men attempting to break bats on their heads anything remotely close to illustrating divine power?
The extraordinary gospel appears foolish and is not. Abandoning the ordinary means of proclaiming the gospel looks foolish and in fact is.
