Someone testified, "i just want to be a normal christian, not like Paul"!

And i responded (with further testimony added):

Yes, Paul was an Apostle, but a "normal christian"? (I Corinthians 15:9)

i question such because at one time in the 'new' life i believed that i had received, i decided that i didn't want to be a "disciple" and follow The Messiah on "The Narrow Way"! i just wanted to be what i then would have declared to be a "normal christian"....... (Matthew 7:13; 16:14)

During that time i was being "churched", which is liken unto a cloning process!

And the cloning was primarily of the worldly "do your best and leave the rest to god" variety, and i had not yet REALized that The Messiah had testified, "i can do nothing of my own self! (Luke 12:26, John 5:19,30; 8:28-29)   http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/04/you-that-are-unable-to-do-least-why-do.html
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2014/10/the-messiah-testified-i-can-do-nothing.html

Such cloning was of the "cleanliness is next to godliness" ... "don't worry, be happy" ... "love your country" ... "x-mass, easter, 4th of july, holyween" ... "song, song, prayer, message, collection, song, prayer, benediction" ... "'church on sunday, saturday for some ... "bible study mid-week" ... "grace, grace, grace" ... "it's all good" ... "you can't judge me" ... "i'm ok, you're ok" ... "what me worry" ... "eat, drink and be merry" ... "hey, it's all good",,,,,, variety!

All of which are "normal christian" philosophical, theo'ry'logical, pharisaical, braindirtying processes that but further the cause of the "con"venient speakers, those "who with good words and fair speeches evermore seek to deceive the hearts of the simple"! (Romans 16:18)
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2012/10/taking-bait-and-lies-are-swallowed-hook.html

And i experienced such within the lutheran, catholic, baptist, aog, coc, lds, jw, sda, pby, meth, pent, cog, non-demon, inter-demon,,etc,,! As well as hutterite, so-called conservative and old-order mennonite groups, various "intentional communities", "home churches" and "street ministries".......

Thankfully "Our FATHER and GOD", HE delivered me from religion's way, and HE yet delivers me from "the lust of the eye, the lust of the flesh, and the pride of life"! From fleshly, self("I", ego, id, pride)ish desires and vain "imag"inations that would once again bind me in the chains of "strong delusion"! (John 20:17, Genesis 3:6, I John 2:15-17, II Thessalonians 2:10-13, II Corinthians 10:5, Romans 1:21)

FATHER Help!

HE DID!       and HE does.......
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/11/my-prayer-father-help-and-he-does.html

For Thankfully i had experienced  The Miracle that IS "receiving a love of The TRUTH so that i might be saved" prior to searching for what i then called "the true church", yet i had not yet been "Born Again"! i received not of "The Life" until, in spite of me, i no longer could do what i wanted to do....... (II Thessalonians 2:10-13, John 3:3,7, I Peter 1:23, Luke 22:42)   
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2013/05/one-needs-receive-love-of-truth-to-be.html
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/05/my-testimony-of-receiving-love-of-truth.html
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/10/a-born-again-experience_15.html

And The TRUTH ultimately revealed that as "The Word of TRUTH" testifies, so IT IS there IS Only One "Pure Religion and Undefiled"! (James 1:18,27)

http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2008/10/pure-and-undefiled-religion.html

"Pure Religion and Undefiled before Our FATHER and GOD is this! To visit The FATHERless (those who have no relationship with The GOD and FATHER{Creator} of ALL), and widows (those whose "bridegroom" has not risen from among the dead) in their affliction and to keep oneself uncontaminated by the world!" (James 1:27)


Not a system! And not religion's way as know today, but The Active Faith of those who, in TRUTH, have been "Born Again" of The Holy, Set Apart, SPIRIT! Those "sons of Our FATHER and GOD" who have their portion !NOW! in HIS Family, of "WHOM the whole Family in Heaven and ON EARTH is named"....... (II Thessalonians 2:10-13, John 3:3,7, I Peter 1:23, I John 3:1-2, Philippians 2:15, Ephesians 3:15)
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/10/a-born-again-experience_15.html

"A Household of Faith" indeed and TRUTH! (Galatians 6:10, Ephesians 2:19)
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2014/07/thankfully-faith-wins-victory-i-john-54.html

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

And Yes! atheism is a religion as well, for atheists see their version of a god each and every time they view their reflected "image"!  http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2012/03/atheists-so-called-are-some-of-most.html

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


ALL Religion! (except The Active Faith as revealed in James 1:27)

FATHER Help!


HE DID!       and HE does.......

http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2014/09/father-help-and-he-does.html

"A normal christian"?

Seems a soul should rather REALize, "Who are the brethren of The Messiah"!

And would not a brother of The Messiah be seeking and desiring to follow Him on "The Narrow Way"; "walking as He walked"; willingly "forsaking all that they have! YES, and their own life as well"? (Matthew 7:13-14, I John 2:6, Luke 14:33) 

Seems the brethren of The Messiah would be seeking and desiring that which The Messiah sought and desired above all else:

"FATHER, not my will, But THY Will Be Done"....... (Luke 22:42)
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/07/father-not-my-will-but-thy-will-be-done.html

FATHER Help!       and HE does......

"The Way of TRUTH" is most certainly not the easy way, not the ease-of-life way! But Oh, the joy that floods my soul when i REALize that Our FATHER and GOD, HE truly cares for and provides for the needs of each and every one of HIS children....... Those whose heart desire is to do "HIS Will and GOOD Pleasure"! Such was revealed in both The Life and The Teachings of The Messiah! (II Peter 2:1-3, John 20:17, I Timothy 6:17, Philippians 2:13)
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/05/faith-without-works-is-dead-james-217.html

And it is needful to REALize that The Messiah received both His Life and His Teachings from "Our FATHER and GOD", and that The Messiah testified "i can do nothing of my own self"....... (John 5:19,30; 8:28-29; 12:49-50 14:10,23-24; 17:8,14) http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2014/10/the-messiah-testified-i-can-do-nothing.html

So what can His brethren do of their own("I", ego, id, pride)selves?

"You that are unable to do the least! Why do you take thought for the rest"? (Luke 12:26)

And so it is that i believe the brethren of The Messiah are His disciples, and one needs be disciplined so
 that they might "be saved" from their own self ("I", ego, id, pride) life; their way; their own vain "imag"-inations; and their version of life, so that they evermore might receive of The Life as they "grow in Grace"! (II Thessalonians 2:10-13, II Peter 3:18)   http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2009/05/i-must-die.html

i believe that a soul who Is Not disciplined, Is Not of The Messiah's brethren.......


And His brethren have REALized, that liken unto The Messiah so also "i can do nothing of my own self"! (John 8:28:29; 5:19,30)   http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2014/10/the-messiah-testified-i-can-do-nothing.html

Yet, His brethren are not cookie-cutter clones by any means, yet their heart's desire is that which The Messiah sought and desired above all else:

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

http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/07/father-not-my-will-but-thy-will-be-done.html

FATHER Help!

HE DID!       and HE does.......

http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/11/my-prayer-father-help-and-he-does.html

And "a normal christian"?

Seems "the god of this world, he who is "the father of lies", uses them in his war against The TRUTH! (John 8:44, II Corinthians 4:4; 10:3-4, I Timothy 1:18, Ephesians 6:12)

http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2012/12/the-father-of-lies-has-made-his.html

So it is that the money loving, love your own life in and of this evil world; ease-of-life; i'm ok, you're ok; consumptive, destructive, perverse, theo'ry'logical, lying systems that are religion's way; all war against The TRUTH! (John 8:32-36)   http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2014/12/progress-or-progressive-destruction.html
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2012/10/taking-bait-and-lies-are-swallowed-hook.html
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2011/01/have-you-been-double-crossed.html

And religious systems, all of which are of this evil world, are leading the way as babylon (babel, disorder, one world) is re"imag"ined!

One wicked world, one language(english), and "Now nothing will be restrained from them that they have "imag"ined to do"! (Genesis 11:6)

http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2014/11/behold-world-is-coming-together-as-one.html

So it is that those who are of this evil world and/or religion's way (except The Active Faith as revealed in James 1:27) are destroying Creation(air, water, land, vegetation, creatures) and perverting that which IS SPIRIT(TRUTH, Light, Life, Love, Peace, Grace, Faith,,,, All that is Truly GOOD)!   

http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2009/07/simply-progress-so-called-is-destroying.html

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

http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2011/05/come-out-of-her-my-people.html

Seek and desire to have your portion with The Messiah !NOW! in The Family of “Our FATHER and GOD", "of WHOM the whole Family in Heaven and ON EARTH is named"....... (Ephesians 3:15)

http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2011/07/family-of-faith-or-system-of-religion.html

"A Household of Faith" indeed and TRUTH....... (Galatians 6:10, Ephesians 2:19

http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2014/07/thankfully-faith-wins-victory-i-john-54.html

And NEW "Jerusalem which IS above IS free, and IS !NOW! The Mother of us all (Spiritually "Born Again" sons {naturally male or 'fe'male} of Our FATHER and GOD)"! (Galatians 4:26, John 3:3,7, I Peter 1:23)
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/10/a-born-again-experience_15.html

Thankfully "The Mother" of the "Born Again" brethren (naturally male or 'fe'male) of The Messiah is no longer "mother earth", earthly and of the flesh....... For "NEW Jerusalem" which IS Heavenly IS SPIRIT and of The TRUTH!

So it is, the brethren of The Messiah seek and desire to "forsake all for The Kingdom of Heaven's sake"! And we choose to remain but "aliens and pilgrims while on the earth", for we have REALized that our "citizenship(Life) IS !NOW! in Heaven", and that soon and very soon, we will be taken Home, Home at last! (Matthew 13:34, I Peter 2:11, Hebrews 11:13, Philippians 3:20, John 14:2-3)

Till then:

We "cry unto Our FATHER and GOD day and night"....... (Luke 18:7, John 20:17)
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/09/our-father-and-god-john-2017.html

Evermore sounding and resounding a Declaration of Dependence:
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2014/04/the-declaration-of-dependence.html

FATHER Help! 

HE DID!       and HE does.......
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2014/09/father-help-and-he-does.html

So Thankfully, "The Peace that surpasses ALL understanding" IS! in spite of the dis-ease (no-peace) that is of this evil world and/or religion's way(except it be The Active Faith as revealed in James 1:27)....... (Philippians 4:7, John 14:27; 7:7, I John 2:15-17; 5:19, James 4:4; 1:27)

ALL Thanks and Praise Be Unto Our FATHER(TRUTH, SPIRIT, CREATOR, GOD, LORD, MASTER, LIGHT, LOVE, LIFE,,,,,,, ALL IN ALL that which IS Truly GOOD)(John 20:17; 14:28, Mark 10:18)
