The forward pass wasn’t part of football until a rule change in 1906. Until then, the role of the quarterback was to take the snap from center, hand off the ball, or carry it himself. Changing the rules changed the way the game was played and brought more excitement to the fans and players. You would think all teams and coaches would embrace the change, but some did not.
Some of the reasoning went like this: Three things can happen went you throw a pass: a completion, an incomplete pass, or an interception. Two of those three things are bad, so I’ll play the odds and stick to the run. As time went on, this philosophy faded away, and the forward pass was used as much or more than grinding out yardage in the running game. Quarterbacks had another weapon in their arsenal. When they approach the line to start a new play, they can consider whether a pass would work better than a run.
Spiritual rules do not change, but religious rules can and do change. How successful we are at playing the game depends on the set of rules we heed. If we ignore the spiritual rules, we will be penalized and pushed back on our journey. Moving forward is accomplished through team work, patience, and passing love from one to another.
