The other day I received some bulletins in the mail; the brother who sent them (or the church where he preaches) is a conservative man and one who teaches the Lord’s way faithfully (as best I can tell). The bulletins I received, however, seemed to me to ride a “hobby-horse.” What is a hobby-horse? It is a subject, topic, or person that one continually talks about. It seems there is little to talk about except that particular topic, subject or person. Thus, it is a hobby, and the one talking about it wants to ride it until it dies. Problem is, it never dies. There is a place for speaking (writing) about particular things, but meat over cooked is good for nothing but to be discarded.
