Change is a wonderful aspect of life, but it can have very negative effects. People who advocate change are usually ostracized and classified as rebels. Outcast from society, they are still able to achieve their goals, equipping themselves with a certainly outstanding prowess. Without courage their ambitions would be tamed and they would dissolve back into the unchanging society. The absence of courage would affect how we cope with injustice.
Jesus Christ has been a controversial figure throughout history. He lived a perfect life and walked in love, yet when his doctrines differed from the Pharisees he was persecuted unto death.
