Looking for more in Christianity . . .

Detached observers are happy with church. People who want to actively participate in seeking God, long for more.

The Bible says Christians are led by the Spirit, but that’s impossible if we’re unwilling to surrender our control and be flexible. God’s assembly gathers to demonstrate the hearing of faith by walking in the freedom of the Spirit.

Jesus is looking for loving people, overflowing with compassion, not for enforcers trying to coerce people to act right. Religion without humility and a heart full of God’s love can quickly turn mean.

Biblical Christianity doesn’t need any human government to support it or defend it. It stands on the living, resurrected Jesus.

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
