Judgement, Guilt, Sorrow, Mercy, Forgiveness

Where there is no judgment;
There is no mercy.
Where there is no guilt;
There is no grace.
If you haven’t been judged guilty,
There is no forgiveness.

Where there is no threat of punishment, there is no justice.

Where there is no sorrow, there is no repentance.

Where there has been no bondage, there is no being set free.

Where there has been no sin, there is no salvation from sin.

God is not a thought in a human mind.
He is an actual, living Being;
Present and active,
Yet frequently overlooked,
In human consciousness.
Be still and know that I am God.”

About Steve Simms

I like to look and think outside the box. I have written two books: Mindrobics: How To Be Happy For The Rest Of Your Life and Your Sperm Won--Experiencing Your Value As A Championship Human Being. 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 lead a non-traditional church in Nashville based on open participation and Spirit-led sharing. We long to see the power and passion of the early church come to life in our time.
