The truest patriotism

The truest patriotism is to treat everyone with the eternal values of freedom, equality, and justice, stated in American documents.

All nations are temporary forms of government that exist for days, years, generations, or centuries, and then vanish away. However, God’s values last forever.

No country has permanent residents. We all reside only temporarily in the nation of our birth (or choice).

Freedom isn’t getting the laws you want passed. It’s getting to express your opinions about laws without government harassment.

As nations rise and fall,
Eternal principles call
For the loyalty of all:
Truth, compassion, mercy, love.

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
