And TRUTH IS! A soul needs "receives a love of The TRUTH so that they might be saved" from their own temporal self ("I", ego, id, pride) life, their own vain "imag"inations, this evil world, and religion's way(except it be The Active Faith as revealed in James 1:27)....... (II Thessalonians 2:10-13, John 7:7, I John 2:15-17; 5:19, James 1:27; 4:4)
As for religion, and the worshiping of that which is natural? (I Corinthians 2:14)
Simply, in this day and age there is no doubt that Creation (air, water, land, vegetation, creatures) IS being destroyed , and any religious type worship of that which is natural is of mankind's "imag"ination! And mankind's "imag"ination is but a playground for the "con"venient speakers "who with kind words and fair speech" evermore seek to lead the multitudes along that "broad way to destruction" and perdition! (Romans 1:21; 16:18, II Corinthians 10:5, Matthew 7:13)
TRUTH IS! So-called "mother earth" is liken unto a womb, yet The CREATOR, HE IS "Our FATHER and GOD"! And The Seed(SPIRIT) of Life, both naturally and Spiritually, emanates from HIM! (Genesis 1:1-2:25, John 20:17) http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/02/god-is-spirit-is-creator-is-life-is-all.html
As for religion? ALL religion!
It IS as Mahatma Gandhi testified, "GOD has no religion".......
And he also testified, "There is no GOD higher than TRUTH"!
And i would add, "for GOD IS TRUTH"....... (Psalms 31:5)
And Thankfully in his latter years Mahatma Gandhi lived and experienced The TRUTH that IS FAMILY, The Family of Our FATHER and GOD"! "A Household of Faith" indeed and TRUTH! (Ephesians 3:15, Galatians 6:10) http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2011/07/family-of-faith-or-system-of-religion.html
Not religion's way, for James 1:27 reveals that there is Only One "Pure Religion and Undefiled", and such IS an Active FAITH(not a dead letter religion)! And an Active Faith IS "The Way, The TRUTH, and The Life"! (James 1:27, Ephesians 3:15, John 14:6) http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2008/10/pure-and-undefiled-religion.html
And in his latter years Mahatma Gandhi REALized such in a "common union(Family) with Spiritual brothers and sisters" who called nothing their own as they evermore sought and desired The Fruit (Love, Joy, Peace, Faith,,,,,,,) bore in A Simple and Spiritual Life....... (Acts 2:44; 4:32, Galatians 5:22, Ephesians 5:9)
Not once, and/or multiple times in a week, but 24/7/52/365 and FOREVER!
Sadly, many of those who "worship nature" testify of being "spiritual" people, yet they then ground themselves to the earth as they encourage others to worship that which will soon, and very soon, be no more for all souls yet abiding on the earth.
And they seek to lump together that which is not seen, with that which is seen. Even as they walk and tread upon that which they worship, rather than worshiping The SPIRIT from which all GOOD "things", seen and unseen, emanate!
TRUTH IS! The breath(Spirit, air) that sustains this natural life, IS Spirit!
And "Our FATHER and GOD", HE IS SPIRIT! (John 4:24)
And when "time and air(Spirit)" are no more, the earth will burn, both from within and from without! (II Peter 3:10-14) http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2009/07/simply-progress-so-called-is-destroying.html
Simply sad for all who worship, rather than simply respecting and caring for that which mankind is destroying(air, water, land, vegetation, creatures), even as they evermore pervert that which is of The SPIRIT
(TRUTH, Light, Life, Peace, Love, Faith, Grace, Hope, Mercy, Joy,,,,,,, ALL that IS Truly GOOD)!
And simply, "The greatest Joy of being a human(natural)" can only be experienced when a soul, liken unto The Anointed One (aka: Messiah), finally REALizes "i can do nothing of my own self"! For such a soul will seek and desire that which The Messiah sought and desired above ALL else. Yes!, more than this natural temporal life itself He desired: (John 5:19,30; 8:28-29; 7:16; 9:4; 12:49-50; 14:10,23-24; 17:8,14)
"FATHER, not my will, But THY Will Be Done"....... (Luke 22:42)
Mahatma Gandhi REALized such and testified, "I am but a poor struggling soul yearning to be wholly good, wholly Truthful and wholly non-violent in thought, word and deed, but ever failing to reach the ideal which I know to be true. It is a painful climb, but the pain of it is a positive pleasure to me. Each step Upwards makes me feel stronger and fit for the next"! (*Needs be i testify i have great respect for Mahatma Gandhi but i seek to follow The Messiah*) http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/07/earth-provides-enough-to-satisfy-every.html
And he testified, "I have been a willing slave to this most exacting MASTER for more then half a century. HIS Voice has been increasingly audible as years have rolled by. HE has never forsaken me even in my darkest hour. HE has saved me often from myself and left me not a vestige of independence. The greater the surrender to HIM, the greater has been my Joy".
Yes! "Joy! (And Joy trumps happy in the flesh)" in Self ("I", ego, id. pride) Denial and Surrender.......
A Declaration of Dependence upon The CREATOR of ALL, not HIS Creation.......
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 2:15-17; 5:19, James 1:27; 4:4)
ALL Thanks and Praise Be Unto Our FATHER(TRUTH, CREATOR, SPIRIT, GOD, LORD, MASTER, LIGHT, LOVE, LIFE,,,,,,, ALL IN ALL that which IS Truly GOOD)! (John 20:17; 14:28, Mark 10:18)
