Beyond self-care & self-love, we can find self-reality

Even with great eyesight, people with blind hearts won’t see clearly. When truth threatens their ego, people often call it a lie. Usually the hardest lies to spot are the ones hiding in your heart.

The most important evil for you to overcome, is the evil in your own heart. A major flaw in human nature, is the tendency to sanitize self, while demonizing those who disagree with us.

Believing that conservative and liberal are the only two approaches to politics, is narrow minded. I’d like to see a candidate speak from the heart, instead of from hostility or programming. Conservatives and liberals who won’t hear and obey their conscience are very dangerous.

Any thought or feeling that causes you to want to harm (or insult) people because of their beliefs, is wrong. A democracy settles disagreements by voting, not by insulting and/or fighting with their fellow citizens.

Self-orbiting Christianity never escapes the gravity of human nature. When human nature is given over to its own desires, it can say and do terrible things. When we allow the risen Jesus to rule within us, He gives us power to resist our rebellious human nature.

I like thinking. It’s one of my favorite hobbies. If you can see the colorful leaves of Fall as beautiful, you can also see humanity’s colors as beautiful.

In the 2020, USA, Vice Presidential Debate, the candidates were ask their view of abortion. Here’s my answer: Abortion, like suicide, is a tragic and wasteful loss of human life. When human life is disrespected in any of its stages, it will eventually be disrespected in all of them.

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
