The Apostle Paul was perhaps the greatest missionary who ever lived, and perhaps the greatest teacher, aside from our Lord, of the necessity and the means of identifying oneself to the needs of the Diverse peoples of the non-Christian world in order that he might effectively communicate the "Good News" of God's redemption plan. In his first letter to the fledgling church at Corinth, he succinctly and accurately states what is at once the primary manner, the primary goal and the primary obstacle to that identification. "... I have become all things to all men that I may by all means save some."
