de Gaulle or de Bible?

Charles de Gaulle said: “Church is the only place where someone speaks to me and I do not have to answer back.”

Here’s what de Bible says about that: “Two or three prophets should speak, and the others should weigh carefully what is said. And if a revelation comes to someone who is sitting down, the first speaker should stop.” –1 Corinthians 14:29-30.

de Gaulle said:  “I have come to the conclusion that politics is too serious a matter to be left to the politicians.”

Perhaps church meetings are “too serious a matter to be left to” ministers.  Has something been lost?

LOST! Deep in the pages of the Bible
A powerful way to encounter God
By meeting in unprogrammed community
To be led by the presence of the living Jesus.
FOUND! “When you come together, each of you has a hymn, or a word of instruction, a revelation . . .” 1 Corinthians 14:26

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 @
