Paradox (n.)- a statement or proposition, that, despite sound (or apparently sound) reasoning from acceptable premises, leads to a conclusion that seems senseless, logically unacceptable, or self-contradictory.

For example: "But whatever was to my profit I now consider loss for the sake of Christ. What is more, I consider everything a loss compared to the surpassing greatness of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord, for whose sake I have lost all things." Philippians 3:7-8

Hmm. Paradoxical, huh? Many of the authors of the New Testament wrote about things in  a way that turns our understanding upside down. "I have lost all things" for the sake of knowing Christ? That is a little counter-intuitive. 

It is also quite intriguing, which is why our next all new teaching series is called "Invert: Turning the Tables on Conventional Spirituality". Be sure to come check it out...
