Spiritual Starvation / Biblical Realities

The 21st Century is suffering from spiritual starvation.  We have cast the realities of biblical language from our vocabulary.  Repentance, obedience, sacrifice, iniquities, self-denial, sin, judgment, salvation, rebellion, eternal life, mercy — these (and other) words that describe real human conditions and behaviors have been exited from our lives.

The Bible describes the human condition.  Yet, we have chosen the denial of its truths.

Then we wonder why we struggle with misery constantly nipping at our hills.  And why the Bible’s concepts of love, joy, and inner peace seem like fantasy.

But is it really any wonder?  We’ve thrown down the nourishment supplied in the Bible.  Now we stagger in the state of spiritual starvation.

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.
