The Family of "Our Father and GOD"! -OR- religion's way?

"Choose you this day"!

Why would "aliens and pilgrims while on the earth" create a religion? (I Peter 2:11)

For we have "set our affections on things above", Heavenly things! (Colossians 1:1-3)

http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2012/10/set-your-affection-on-things-above.html

History has revealed, and yet reveals, that multiplied billions have been killed and enslaved (in physical chains at times, yet primarily in the chains of strong delusion that are the theo'ry'logical doctrinal heresies of men) in the name of the god[s] of this, or that, religion!

Proving the fruit of death and enslavement are bore of religion's way,
For life is but a pawn in the wicked game they play!

And that is but one of a multitude of reasons why "The Way of Truth is evil spoken of", and especially so because of those religion's that declare that they are "biblically" based! (II Peter 2:1-3)

Pagan catholicism, her multitude of harlot christian ('jesus') daughters, all muslim sects, and the many judaic systems of this day, all propagate lies, delusion, deception, confusion and every evil work!

"Come out from among them and be separate!" (II Corinthians 6:17)

Simply, 'religion' and 'government" were and are yet needful for the natural man! Those "disobedient and gainsaying (contradicting and opposing GOD) people" who are "stiff-necked and uncircumcised of heart and ears"! (Romans 10:21, Acts 7:51, Exodus 32:9)

Such was needful, and is yet needful for those who would rather have a man(Moses) speak to them than Our Father and GOD, and those who would rather have a man(Saul) rule over them than Our Father and GOD...... (Exodus 20:18-19, I Samuel 8:19-20)

i believe the first step in REALizing what 'religion' is, comes when one truly understands the testimony in James 1:27: 

"Pure religion and undefiled before Our Father and GOD is this, to visit the fatherless (those who have no relationship with Our Father and GOD) and widows (those whose bridegroom has not risen from among the dead) in their affliction, and to keep oneself uncontaminated by the world."


Simply, ALL other 'religion' IS "IMPURE and DEFILED"!

And is needs be REALized that "atheism" is a religion as well, for 'atheists' see their version of a god each and every time they view their reflected "image"!

Yet, "Our Father and GOD", thankfully HE is Merciful! (Romans 9:16)

So repentance and regeneration ("Born Again", New Life) can be experienced by those who have, or who will receive "a love of The Truth"....... (I Peter 1:23, II Thessalonians 2:10-12) 

And those who receive "a love of The Truth" will desire naught but to hear The Voice of "Our Father and GOD", and liken unto The Messiah will seek and desire above all else: 

"Father, not my will, But THY Will Be Done"! (Luke 22:42)

For they will REALize evermore, that "Our Father and GOD", HE knows what is best for HIS children! 

So it is, we "cry unto HIM day and night"....... (Luke 18:7)

Father Help!

HE DID!       and HE does.......

And The Faithful?

Do not The Faithful seek "Our Father's" Help and desire to do HIS Will?

And does not "Our Father and GOD", HE WHO IS ALIVE, yet commune with HIS Faithful children?

And it needs be REALized that NEW "Jerusalem which IS above, IS free, and IS !NOW! the mother of us all (sons of Our Father and GOD)"! (Galatians  4:26)

So why would The Faithful create a religion?

Are not brothers and sisters family?

And do not The Faithful brothers and sisters of The Messiah have their portion in The Family of "Our Father and GOD" !NOW!

Most certainly!

For The Faithful are the children of "Our Father and GOD", "of WHOM the whole Family in Heaven and ON EARTH is named"! (Ephesians 3:15)

So it is that the brethren of The Messiah, we who are "sons of Our Father and GOD", are in and of The Family of "Our Father and GOD" !NOW!, whether in Heaven or ON EARTH! (Hebrews 2:11, Philippians 2:15, I John 3:1, Ephesians 3:15)

And so it is that we choose to remain but "aliens and pilgrims while on the earth", for we have REALized that our "citizenship(Life) IS !NOW! in Heaven"! (I Peter 2:11, Hebrews 11:13, Philippians 3:20)

So why would "aliens and pilgrims" create a religion, or "love this world and it's things"? (I Peter 2:11, I John 2:15-17, James 4:4)

Why would we love our own self("I",ego,id,pride)life in this evil world, especially when it is promised that "whoever loves his life in this world will lose it, and whoever hates his life in this world will keep it unto Life Eternal"? (I John 2:15-17, John 12:25)

http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2009/05/i-must-die.html

And so it is that we continue to sound The Call of "Our Father and GOD" as we exhort others to:

"Come Out of her(babel/dis-order/babylon\world\religion), MY people!"
(Revelations 18:4)

"Come Out" of that which is of this evil world and/or religion's way!

Be of those who seek to "forsake all," "Yes! and their own life also", 
just as The Messiah did! (Luke 14:33)

Be of those who tarry in, yet are not friends of, this evil world!
(I John 2:15-17, James 4:4)

Be of those "aliens and pilgrims while on the earth" who have REALized that their "citizenship(Life) IS !NOW! in Heaven", and that soon, and very soon, we will be taken Home, Home at last!  (I Peter 2:11, Hebrews 11:13, Philippians 3:20, John 14:2-3)

Till then:

We REALize evermore of how "poor and needy" we truly are, and so it is we "cry unto Our Father and GOD day and night"....... (Psalms 70:5; 72:13, Luke 18:7)

Sounding and resounding The Declaration of Dependence:

Father Help!

HE DID!       and HE does.......

So Peace IS! in spite of the dis-ease (no-peace) that is of this evil world and/or religion's way....... (John 14:27; 7:7, I John 2:15-17; 5:19, James 1:27; 4:4)

ALL Thanks and Praise Be Unto Our Father and GOD!

I try not to let human religion distract me from understanding an experiencing God's greatness and goodness. We read in 21st Century Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, "Jesus’ earthly cup of bitterness was drained to the dregs. He had only a few unpretentious friends stay by his side. The religion of these spiritual friends was something more than a name...The supremacy of Spirit was the foundation on which Jesus built, and his exceptional standard of living points to the religion of Love." Thanks for you thought provoking post.

i appreciate your taking the time to comment.

However, "religion of Love"?

Simply, "religion is is the way of this wicked, evil world"!

http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2008/10/religion-is-way-of-this-wicked-world.html

And religion was needful, and is yet needful for "disobedient and gainsaying(covetous) people" "uncircumcised of heart and ears" who would rather have a person than "Our Father and GOD" speak to them, and would rather have a person than "Our Father and GOD" rule over them!

And TRUTH IS, apart from The TRUTH, love remains but a four letter "imag"ined word of ones own fleshly mind!

The Messiah revealed the Love He had for the religious ones:

http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2012/06/love-messiah-had-for-religious-ones.html

"Come Out from among them and be separate!"

Hope IS there would be those who would heed the call, and seek and desire to have their portion with The Messiah in The Family of "Our Father and GOD"!

Set your affections on Heavenly things and no longer be of those "whose god is their bellies, and whose glory is in their shame, for they remain earthly minded"!

Father Help! and HE does.......
