Urges or Conscience?

“To thine own self be true,” writes Shakespeare as Polonius in his play Hamlet.  Those words have become so popular that you can find entire Tumblrs of pics of people with “to thine own self be true” tattoos. People often use this phrase when they are feeling defensive and want to justify following their whims, cravings, or orientations.

Be true 2 your urges? Or be true 2 your conscience?
–Nowadays people learn to obey temptation and resist their conscience.
(However, life is much more effective if you obey your conscience and resist temptation.)

be true

Need a thrill?
Don’t take a pill
Or get your fill.
Let God do something real!

R U ever puzzled by life? Life’s a puzzle and the missing piece is the living, resurrected Jesus Christ!

Christ or consequences?
Christ or chaos? –I choose Christ!
Christ or confusion? –I choose Christ!
Christ or corruption? –I choose Christ!
Christ or chagrin? –I choose Christ!

Fill the hole in your soul.
Let Jesus make you wholly holy!

Say hi to the living, resurrected Jesus — get high on His Presence @ The Salvation Army Berry Street, 225 Berry St., Nashville, Tennessee 372o7 on Sundays @ 10:45 am.

About Steve Simms

I like to look and think outside the box. In college I encountered Jesus Christ and I have been passionate about trying to get to know Him better ever since. My wife and I long to see the power and passion of the first Christ-followers come to life in our time. I have written a book about our experiences in non-traditional church, called, "Beyond Church: An Invitation To Experience The Lost Word Of The Bible--Ekklesia." If you need encouragement, search for: Elephants Encouraging The Room and/or check out my Amazon author page. Thank you!
