The Inner Empire Strikes Back

When dark raiders and demonic invaders oppress the human mind, the inner empire of God strikes back with love, joy, and peace to defend the great wealth of spiritual and mental health. Which side are you fighting on?

“We must banish from our heart every other dominion but God.”  –Louis Lallelmant

Let us examine ourselves carefully, and observe on what object our thoughts are most fixed, what most disturbs our inner peace.  and when we have discovered what it is, let us immediately root it out.  –Louis Lallelmant

“Christians have forgotten Whom we serve and Whose Empire we are to be concerned with; we are here, in the greatness of God, to shine forth His goodness and mercy, to prove the greatness of His Love in His empirical Kingdom!”  –Charles Haddon Shank

3 who fought for the Empire of God:

“Our happiness consists in the subjection of the heart to the empire of God.”  –Louis Lallelmant, a 16th century French monk.

“As soon as we conceive a thought that is not founded on love, we have accepted the evil suggestions of the demons.”  –Thaddeus of Victovnica, a 20th Century Serbian monk.

“Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind.”  –Paul of Tarsus, a 1st century Christ-follower who wrote 1/3 of the New Testament.

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 @
