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. 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
