Someone had testified, "Therefore, it's been proven beyond a doubt that the world today requires a spiritual religion as practiced by Mahatma Gandhi to re-establish order in the world"!
And i responded(with additional testimony as well):
First it needs be that i testify, "i do not follow Mahatma Gandhi, yet i do respect him above all other men who have received the breath(Spirit, air) of life since i received my first breath(Spirit, air) in '43. Such respect was manifest when i began reading the quotes attributed unto him, and especially the quotes of his latter years. http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/11/there-is-man-i-respect-above-all-others.html
And Mahatma Gandhi bore witness unto The TRUTH when he testified, "GOD has no religion", and he also testified, "Whoever believes that religion has nothing to do with politics, does not know what religion is"! http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/06/mahatma-gandhi-testified-god-has-no.html
Simply, "religion" is not that which is needful in this day and age. What is needful IS a Spiritual Life and Family! And Mahatma Gandhi REALized such in his latter years, for he experienced a Common Union with Spiritual brothers and sisters who called nothing their own as they sought and desired evermore of The Fruit bore in a simple and Spiritual Life....... (Acts 2:44: 4:32, Galatians 5:22, Ephesians 5:9) http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2014/08/catholicism-christianity-and.html
And TRUTH IS! "Our FATHER" bespeaks of Family, "of WHOM the whole Family in Heaven and ON EARTH is named"....... (Ephesians 3:15; 4:6)
One FATHER(GOD), HIS Only Begotten Son The Messiah, and The Faithful both in Heaven and yet ON EARTH....... One in SPIRIT, The Oneness Family! Forever....... (Ephesians 3:15; 4:6)
As for this evil world? Simply, "the WHOLE world (not just a portion) is under the control of the evil one", and "whoever would be a friend of this world IS the enemy of Our FATHER and GOD"....... (John 7:7, I John 5:19; 2:15-17, James 4:1-4) http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2013/09/the-whole-world-not-just-portion-is.html
And TRUTH IS! There IS Only One "Pure Religion and Undefiled"! (James 1:27)
Not that which calls itself 'religion' in this day and age, but The Active Faith REALized by ALL The Faithful "Born Again" children of "Our FATHER and GOD" who are yet ON EARTH.......
"A Household of Faith" indeed and TRUTH....... (Galatians 6:10, Ephesians 2:19; 3:15)
Simply, ALL other religion IS "IMPURE and DEFILED"!
And as for India, Mahatma Gandhi testified, “GOD forbid that India should ever take to industrialism after the manner of the west, for such binds the world in chains! If our nation took to similar economic exploitation, it would strip the world bare like locusts”.......
Sadly, India has not taken heed unto the prophecy of Mahatma Gandhi, for India has chosen to follow the worldly ways of the "west", and so it is that in this day and age India has it's portion with those who are destroying Creation (air, water, land, vegetation, creatures), and perverting that which is SPIRIT (TRUTH, Light, Life, Love, Peace, Faith, Grace, Wisdom,,,,,,, ALL that IS Truly GOOD)!
"Come out from among them and be separate"! (II Corinthians 6:17)
And Mahatma Gandhi testified, "If I preach against the modern artificial life of sensual enjoyment, and ask men and women to go back to the simple life epitomized in the charkha (spinning wheel), I do so because I know that without an intelligent return to simplicity, there is no escape from our descent to a state lower than brutality!" http://mettacenter.org/definitions/charkha/
Sadly, such is the way of this evil world in these latter days.......
And what is more brutal then "calling that which is evil, good; and that which is good, evil"? (Isaiah 5:20)
And believing that a lie is of The TRUTH; and that The TRUTH is but a lie! (John 3:16; 8:32-36, II Thess 2:10-12)
For unless a soul "receives a love of The TRUTH they can not be saved" from their own self ("I", ego, id, pride) life! (II Thessalonians 2:10-13) http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2013/05/one-needs-receive-love-of-truth-to-be.html
Yet who is willing to "forsake all"? (Luke 14:33)
Yes! and your own self ("I",ego,id,pride) life as well? (Luke 14:26)
For such needs be for a soul to finally begin to REALize how "poor and in need" of Our FATHER and GOD they Truly are! (Psalms 70:5; 72:13, John 5:19,30; 8:28-29; 20:17, Luke 12:26)
For liken unto The Messiah, so also will His brethren ultimately REALize, "i can do nothing of my own self"! (John 5:19,30; 8:28-29; 7:16; 9:4; 12:49-50; 14:10,23-24; 17:8,14)
So it is "the elect cry unto Our FATHER and GOD day and night"! (Luke 18:7, John 20:17)
Evermore sounding and resounding a Declaration of Dependence:
HE DID! and HE does.......
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 5:19; 2:15-17, James 1:27; 4:4)
And Thankfully TRUTH IS! a lie is not.......
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)
