Have explanations destroyed the fun & mystery of Western Christianity?

Life is full of wonders and mysteries that make us say “Wow!” If you’re not frequently saying a heart-felt “Wow!” you’re missing a lot!

I do illusions, but don’t share their secrets. Explanations destroy their fun and mystery. That’s happened to much of Christianity.

Love’s a mystery. If you figure it out, organize and systematize it, it’s no longer love. That’s also happened to much of Christianity. God’s revelation happens in the heart, not in the head.

Action without intent is meaningless. Don’t just do something; do what makes your life meaningful. Christians are called to be more than “just human.” We’re called to be “led by the Spirit” and to “walk by the Spirit.”

When you realize we’re all influenced by myth and mirage and mistaken perception, it’s easier to show compassion and mercy to others.

Want to get back to the joy that Jesus talked about in the Bible? Search for my book: The Joy Of Early Christianity.

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 co-lead a non-traditional expression of the body of Christ in Nashville based on open participation and Spirit-led sharing. We 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 called, "Beyond Church: An Invitation To Experience The Lost Word Of The Bible--Ekklesia" that is available in Kindle & paperback @ http://amzn.to/2nCr5dP
