And that the vast majority (many, multitudes) of souls follow that "broad way to destruction", and few there be who rightly choose to follow "The Narrow Way"! (Matthew 7:13-14)
So it is that where the majority rules, in what i call a dem'on'ocracy, "truth lies dead in the streets"!
Now i don't advocate rebelling against such, or any governmental "power" and/or particular religion; but i do exhort others to: http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/09/religion-was-and-is-yet-needful-for.html
"Come out of her(babel/'con'fusion/babylon\world\religion), MY people"! (Revelations 18:4)
Until the 70's the fruits of a capitalistic demo'n'cratic worldly government were not yet fully revealed, for the tree was not yet producing visual evidence of the destruction and perversion that is being evermore revealed in this day and age!
Yet today the fruits of destruction and perversion are readily seen by those with "eyes that see" and "ears that hear"! (Romans 11:8, Revelations 3:18, Psalms 115:6; 135:17, John 12:40)
And "the father of lies", he who is "the god this world" and also religion's way(except The Active Faith as revealed in James 1:27) in this day and age! He is leading the multitudes along that "broad way to destruction" and perdition! (John 8:44, II Corinthians 4:4, Matthew 7:13)
Yet "religion" and government were, and are yet needful for the natural man.......
Needful for "disobedient and gainsaying (contradicting and opposing GOD) people", who are "stiff-necked and uncircumcised of heart and ears"! (Romans 10:21, Acts 7:51)
Needful for those worldly and/or religious souls who would rather have a man (Moses, Samuel, etc.) than Our FATHER and GOD speak to them, and who would rather have a man(Saul, David, etc.) than Our FATHER and GOD rule over them! (Exodus 20:19, l Samuel 8:4-21, John 20:17; 14:28)
And sadly, it is as Mahatma Gandhi prophesied, " “GOD forbid that India should ever take to industrialism after the manner of the west... keeping the world in chains. If our nation took to similar economic exploitation, it would strip the world(earth) bare like locusts”!
So it is that liken into the rest of the nations, all of which are of this evil world, India is running hellbent towards destruction and perdition! (John 7:7, I John 2:15-17: 5:19, James 4:1-4)
Would be better to starve to death, then to be fully fed and believe The LIES, DECEPTION and EVERY EVIL WORK that is of this world and/or religion's way(except The Active Faith as revealed in James 1:27)!
For "The Word of TRUTH" testifies that The CREATOR (HE WHO IS The LORD GOD ALMIGHTY!) "is going to destroy them who would destroy the earth"; and that there IS Only One "Pure Religion and Undefiled
(The Active Faith as revealed in James 1:27)! (James 1:18, Ephesians 3:9, Revelations 3:18)
Better to be "poor and needy" than to have ones portion with "the ungodly who prosper in the world, as they evermore seek to increase in riches"! (Psalms 70:5; 72:13; 73:12)
Thankfully, liken unto of The Messiah, so also have His brethren REALized "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 we "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)
