There is a man i respect above all other souls who have lived during my time on earth!

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.
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/02/spiritual-oxygen.html

The source of such respect being the quotes attributed unto him, one of which was; "True religion is not a narrow dogma. It is not external observance. It is Faith in GOD and living in the presence of GOD. It means Faith in a future Life, in TRUTH and Ahimsa. There prevails today a sort of apathy towards these things of The Spirit"!

And he testified, "GOD has no religion"

And, "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! REALized in "Surrender".......   Self("I",ego,id,pride)Denial and Dependence!

WHO IS The Messiah's FATHER and GOD?

HE WHO IS also The FATHER(CREATOR) and GOD(SPIRIT) of The Messiah's brethren(naturally male or 'fe'male in this day and age)!  http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2012/08/the-word-of-god-let-there-be-light.html

"The Messiah said unto her, "Touch Me not, for I am not yet ascended to My FATHER, but go to My brethren, and say unto them, I ascend unto My FATHER, and your FATHER, unto My GOD and your GOD." (John 20:17; 17:3)  http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2009/08/one-and-only-true-g-d-fathercreator-of.html

Thankfully "Our FATHER(CREATOR) and GOD(SPIRIT)" indeed and TRUTH! (Luke 11:2)
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/09/our-father-and-god-john-2017.html

And "Our FATHER and GOD", HE has no father for "HE IS FATHER of ALL"! (John 20:17, Ephesians 4:6, I Corinthians 8:6)  http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/10/what-does-i-and-my-father-are-one-mean.html

And HE has no god for HE IS "The Only TRUE GOD"! (John 17:3)

Thankfully FAITH Wins The VICTORY! (I John 5:4)

And Thankfully, "whoever is 'Born Again' of The Holy, Set Apart, SPIRIT that IS Our FATHER and GOD overcomes the world"! And "this is The VICTORY that overcomes this evil world, even our FAITH"; yet "Faith without works is dead"! (John 3:3,7; 7:7, I Peter 1:23, I John 5:4, 2:15-17; 5:19, James 2:20-26)

And TRUTH IS! Faith is "not of your own self, Faith is a gift received from Our FATHER and GOD"! (Ephesians 2:8)  http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/11/all-that-is-truly-good-is-spirit-and.html

Thankfully, Faith wins The Victory over sin and death! (I John 5:4)

HalleluYAH!

Progress? -OR- Progressive Destruction?

Why is it that which was once called "covetousness" was then called "greed", then "materialism", and today covetousness is called "good management"?
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/10/being-set-free-from-materialism-and.html

And why is that one hundred years ago most souls had seven "needs" and maybe seventy wants, and today they have more than seventy "needs" and innumerable wants?
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/07/needs-and-wants.html

Many of those who are considered to be living in "poverty" in this day and age would have been declared "middle class" in times past!

And sadly, the rich are never satisfied! For they but seek to maximize profit, even as they seek and desire to acquire evermore riches; caring for naught but gain no matter the consequences.......
(Ecclesiastes 5:10, Psalms 73:12)  http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/09/behold-these-are-ungodly.html

Sufficiency is of The Creator and HIS Creation!

Many strive for self("I",ego,id,pride)sufficiency, yet every breath(Spirit,air) a soul receives should reveal that which sustains the life given them is not of their own doing, but emanates from without!
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2009/05/i-must-die.html
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/04/you-that-are-unable-to-do-least-why-do.html

And John The Baptist testified, "He(The Messiah) Whom The Only True GOD has sent speaks The Words of GOD, for GOD does not give The SPIRIT by measure unto Him." (John 17:3; 3:34)

And The Messiah testified, "I have greater witness than that of John: for The Works which Our FATHER has given Me to finish, are the same Works that I do! And they bear witness of Me, that Our FATHER has sent Me!" (John 5:36)

The Messiah also testified, "I have not spoken of Myself; but The FATHER WHO sent Me, HE gave Me a commandment, what I should say, and how I should speak." (John 12:49-50; 14:10)

And The Messiah, Who spoke The Words "Our FATHER and GOD" gave Him, testified that sufficiency is of  The CREATOR(Our FATHER) and HIS Creation! (John 5:19,30; 20:17, Ephesians 3:9)

Spiritual Warfare IS!

(II Corinthians 10:3-5) Yet "though we walk in the flesh we do not war after the flesh!

For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal(fleshly, natural), but Mighty(TRUTH, Faith) thru Our FATHER and GOD, to the pulling down of strong holds(The self{"I", ego, id, pride}life, which in TRUTH is no life at all)!
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/04/carnal-warfare-is-religions-way-which.html
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2009/05/i-must-die.html

Casting down "imag"inations, and every high thing("I",ego,id,self,pride) that exalts itself against the knowledge of Our FATHER and GOD, and bringing every thought into captivity unto obedience, just as The Messiah(The Anointed One) DID!" (II Corinthians 10:3-5, Romans 1:21)
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/03/sadly-imagination-and-interesting-walk.html

(Ephesians 6:10-18) "Finally, be strong in The LORD and in the strength of HIS might!
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/01/sufficiency-is-of-creator-and-his.html

Put on the whole armor of Our FATHER and GOD, that you may be able to stand against the schemes of the devil!  http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/02/resist-not-evil-resist-devil.html

Water baptism? Anabaptist's? Simply water baptism was needful for the old covenant natural jews, not gentiles!

Anabaptist's are christian religious sects, and most all of those sects call themselves "mennonites". For they follow the teachings of a catholic priest named Menno Simons who had "Come Out" of pagan catholicism physically, yet Spiritually he had remained bound in the chains of "strong delusion" forged by that which is pagan catholicism's heretical doctrines, traditions and folklore! 

However, mennonites do believe that water baptism was not for new born babes, but for those who previously had been baptized(immersed) in, of, by and thru their version of a holy, set apart, spirit! (It needs be REALized that Menno{nites} Simons was liken unto all the catholic priest "reformers" who came out physically, yet remained Spiritually bound in the chains of "strong delusion" that have their portion in  pagan catholic folklore, tradition and doctrinal heresies)

Anabaptist's are liken unto impetuous Peter when he declared, "Can any man forbid water, that these(gentiles) should not be baptized, which have received the Holy , Set Apart, SPIRIT as well as we? 

Yes! The gentiles had already received The Holy, Set Apart, SPIRIT! Yet sadly, Peter commanded them to be baptized in water in the name of The Messiah! (Acts 10:47-48)

Surrender > Dependence > ^Faith^ = "The Way, The TRUTH, and The Life"! (John 14:6)

Yes! For The CREATOR(Our FATHER and GOD), HE knows what IS best for HIS Creation....... (John 20:17, Ephesians 3:9)  http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/09/our-father-and-god-john-2017.html

HalleluYAH!

However, "The Preaching of The Cross IS Foolishness Unto Those Who Will Perish"! (I Corinthians 1:18)
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2011/01/have-you-been-double-crossed.html

Yet TRUTH IS! The "I(ego,id,self,pride)" that is in each and every human needs be "nailed to the cross" for their soul to be saved! (Matthew 16:24, Luke 14:33)  http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2009/05/i-must-die.html

And the brethren(naturally male or 'fe'male) of the Messiah are exhorted to; "Be not like those whose god is their belly, and whose glory is in their shame, because they mind earthly things."(Philippians 3:19)

So, "Set your affections on things above", Heavenly things....... (Colossians 3:1-3)
