Seeing truth when you don’t wanna

Continually accusing others makes us blind to our own faults, but we’re not innocent. You can help people more by sincerely listening to them, than by accusing them. To ignore your conscience is to ignore the way to a better life.

Blindness to injustice, past and present, is widespread. Compassion helps us see it. To go beyond deception, we need to see truth that hurts, not just truth that we like.

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
