Why do people reject Jesus?

Pride cause humans to ignore and/or reject the risen Jesus. We’d rather have a faraway Jesus in Heaven (or a sweet one stationed inside a church building) who doesn’t interfere with our self-will, instead of the present, living Lord who wants to rule us from within.

We want to be our own architect, our own contractor, our own life-designer and builder. We don’t want the inner interference of our conscience or of God’s still small voice. We want to be our own building, not a tiny part of the body of Christ–the spiritual (nonmaterial) house that Jesus is building.

Why have many Christians have abandoned the spiritual search? Because they falsely believe they already have all God has for 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 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!
