Bias against spiritual experiences

The modern bias that spiritual experiences are only subjective causes many people to reject them without honest investigation. If my experiences of Christ in me were subjective, they wouldn’t beautifully align with other people’s experiences of Christ.

The Bible often contradicts my feelings, desires, and opinions. It helps me to align myself more closely to God.

When people forget
That their conscience matters,
Society pays
A dreadful price.

It’s not time for silence
When people are seen
As targets for violence.

Lord means “Supreme Ruler.” Jesus isn’t our Lord if we are doing our own thing. Sometimes the best thing you can do for God is not to go where He doesn’t want you to be.

Let Jesus
Be your King,
Lord of
And His kingdom

What you think has a much greater impact on your life than what anybody else thinks about you. It’s easier to improve what you’re thinking than it is to change what they’re thinking.

Just because I think I’m right, doesn’t mean I am. It’s wise to double check anything I write.

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!
