Hyper-pretension will raise your blood pressure.

Hyper-pretension will raise your blood pressure. The greater the disparity between our opinions of ourself and reality, the stronger is our prentese.

Pretense is concocted to hide what you don’t like about yourself, and therefore is indicative of low self-esteem.

In our popular culture, pretense prevents truth from seeming true, while fiction, fabrication and fantasy are promoted and applauded. The pretense of faith goes poof in life’s fiery furnace but the presence of the risen Jesus will protect you there and lead you out.

High performance with low opportunity usually receives much less credit than moderate performance with great opportunity.

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
