Are there answers to eternal questions?

What does it mean to be right with God? To be saved? To be born again? To be on your way to Heaven? Church has made those questions religious and has answered them with “church membership,” “attending church,” “saying a one-time prayer,” and/or “having a one-time spiritual experience.”

However, what if salvation is an ongoing, personal, submissive, and obedient relationship with the living, resurrected Jesus Christ, instead of those things? Some thoughts recently came to me about what salvation is. I put them on two posters. If you follow your conscience, that inner light will lead you to the risen Jesus and to the powerful realities taught in the Bible. If you ignore your conscience, darkness will gradually lead you away from 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.
