A response to the "strong delusion" that is the "hare krishna" religion (aka: cult)!

Someone who is of the "hare krishna" religion testified: "There is difference between religion and nature. A nature of a living being is to serve. One thing is 'dharma' and another is 'religion'. Both do not convey the same meaning. We do not find any other word in English, so we use word 'religion'. In the Oxford dictionary the meaning of religion is, 'A system of faith, especially personal. God entitled to obedience.' Therefore the word 'religion' is not a proper translation of the word 'dharma'. We should understand it very well that performing rituals alone is not dharma."

And i responded (with further testimony added)
:


Alright, i will agree with you that the english word "religion" does not bespeak of "hare krishna". Yet a right and proper word in english would be "cult"!
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2014/10/someone-accused-me-of-being-member-of.html

For TRUTH IS! There IS Only One "Pure Religion(self("I",ego,id,pride) denial) And Undefiled(serving Our FATHER and GOD)"!  http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2008/10/pure-and-undefiled-religion.html

"The Faithful" rejoice against "reasoning and arguments"! (Hebrews 11:1)

Someone had testified, "You shall achieve what you want. It is faith alone that can bring expansion and responsive consciousness. And doubt brings in sluggishness, a lack of responsiveness and depression. Faith is above reason. If you have faith, all reasoning shall support you. As you believe, so will reasoning and arguments support you".

And i responded:

i am hoping that disagreement will not offend you.......

For "Faith IS the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen", and "Faith wins The Victory over that which is of this evil world"! (Hebrews 11:1, I John 5:4, John 7:7, I John 5:19, James 4:4)
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2014/07/thankfully-faith-wins-victory-i-john-54.html
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2013/09/the-whole-world-not-just-portion-is.html

So it is that The Faithful rejoice against "reasoning and arguments"! For as "iron floated on water" so also "the sons of Our FATHER and God rise above the beggarly elements (of which are reason and arguments) of this evil world and/or religion's way in this day and age(except The Active Faith as revealed in James 1:27)"! (II Kings 6:5-7, II Kings 5:10-14, Luke 24:6, Matthew 14:15-21, Galatians 4:9, John 7:7, I John 2:15-17; 5:19, James 1:27; 4:4)

A DISCLAIMER!

There are those who never did read the DISCLAIMER that used to be posted in the left hand column of this blog site, and the current disclaimer in the left hand column of the blog site is liken unto a summary of that original DISCLAIMER. 

The original DISCLAIMER follows:

The testimonies on this blog bear witness unto The TRUTH that all religion (except The Active Faith as revealed in James 1:27) is of "the father of lies", he who is "the god of this evil world"! And TRUTH IS "the WHOLE world (not just a portion) is under the control of the evil one"! (John 8:44; 15:19-20, II Corinthians 4:4, I John 5:19; 2:15-17, James 4:4, John 7:7)    http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2014/08/why-religion-was-and-is-yet-needful-for.html

February 12, 2017

Someone had written of the need to be "self-reliant"!

"Self("I", ego, id, pride)reliant"?
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2009/05/i-must-die.html

TRUTH IS! "Self-reliance" and/or "Self-sufficiency" both have their portion in and of "the father of lies", he who is the "god of this evil world" and religion's way(except The Active Faith as revealed in James 1:27)! (John 8:44, II Corinthians 4:4)  http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2013/09/the-whole-world-not-just-portion-is.html
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2011/06/religion-is-of-father-of-lies.html
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2008/10/pure-and-undefiled-religion.html

And TRUTH IS! As The Messiah testified, so also have His brethren REALized "i can do nothing of my own self"....... (John 5:19,30; 8:28-29; 7:16; 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, "you that are unable to do the least(breathing is the gift of life, and the breath of life needs be received), why do you take thought for the rest"? (Luke 12:26)
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/04/you-that-are-unable-to-do-least-why-do.html

For TRUTH IS! A soul needs REALize that "Sufficiency IS of The CREATOR and HIS Creation"!
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/01/sufficiency-is-of-creator-and-his.html 

Someone had testified that i had a "voracious appetite"!

And i responded (with further testimony added)

"If i do have a  "voracious appetite" such is for The TRUTH"! (II Thessalonians 2:10-13)
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2013/05/one-needs-receive-love-of-truth-to-be.html
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/02/a-testimony-of-receiving-love-of-truth.html

That which you, and other souls who are in and of this evil world and/or religion's way (except it be The Active Faith as revealed in James 1:27), yet seek to crucify....... (Mathew 23, John 7:7, James 1:27: 4:4)
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2013/09/the-whole-world-not-just-portion-is.html
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/09/religion-was-and-is-yet-needful-for.html

Yet Thankfully that which IS of The TRUTH can not be crucified, for that which IS of The TRUTH WILL ALWAYS RISE AGAIN! (Acts 13:26-30)

HalleluYAH!

What is Success, and who is Successful?

Simply "Success" IS of The SPIRIT and IS Life!  FOREVER....... (John 11:26)
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2014/11/the-messiah-testified-whoever-lives-and.html

And it needs be that i testify, "of all the men who have received the breath (Spirit, air) of life since i received my first breath in '43, i respect Mahatma Gandhi above all others( A Prime Example of A Soul Who Was and IS Successful). The source of such respect being The Spirit of, and in, the quotes attributed to him.......

Some of those quotes follow:  (** my comments **)

“I like your christ, I do not like your christians. Your christians are so unlike your christ(**Messiah**)"!
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2014/11/christianity-is-anti-messiah.html
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2013/08/who-is-this-pagan-catholic-and.html

Philosophy is of the mind of man! Mankind's "imag"ination, reasoning and logic.......

The following is a testimony i gave in response to a Hindu believer who was of those who believe philosophy is a good thing.

Philosophy is of the mind of man, his "imag"ination, reasoning and logic! And/or his lack of understanding concerning that which he has experienced.......
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/10/thoughts-philosophy-and-religion-cause.html

For TRUTH IS! "If any man thinks he knows anything, he knows nothing yet as he ought to know"!
(I Corinthians 8:2)  http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/04/you-that-are-unable-to-do-least-why-do.html

Simply, philosophy has it's portion in "the wisdom of this world" and "knowledge(aka: science), falsely so-called"; both of which "are but foolishness unto Our FATHER and GOD"! (I Corinthians 1:20; 3:19, II Corinthians 1:1, I Timothy 6:20)  http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/10/our-father-and-god-considers-wisdom-of.html

Being set free from materialism and inordinate desires!

Someone had commented, "We are much too materialistic now and our desires cause us to seek ever more."

And i responded (with further testimony added):

Sadly, for the multitudes it is so!

Yet TRUTH IS! Such needs not be.......

Hopefully there will be those who REALize that to be of the "we" who are of this evil world and/or religion's way (except The Active Faith as revealed in James 1:27), is to be of those who are destroying Creation (air, water, land, vegetation, creatures) and perverting that which IS SPIRIT (TRUTH, Light, Life, Peace, Ahimsa, Love, Faith, Grace, Wisdom,,,,,,, ALL that IS Truly GOOD)!  http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2013/09/the-whole-world-not-just-portion-is.html

Why crime, rape, corruption, murder, blackmailing, etc.......?

Someone had questioned: "If God is within us (in every human) why do humans commit crime, rape, corruption, murder, blackmailing etc.?"

And i responded(with further testimony added):

In this day and age sexual perversion and covetousness most certainly have their portion within your short list of sin.......

And TRUTH IS! "That which is not of Faith IS sin"....... (Romans 14:23)
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2014/07/thankfully-faith-wins-victory-i-john-54.html

"One IN SPIRIT with Our FATHER and GOD"! Yet, "Our FATHER and GOD, HE IS Greater Than ALL"! (John 14:28)

Someone had commented, "If man says, God can not be the Son, because the FATHER called the Son, Son! And also by saying the FATHER is One and the Son is Another One, and One and One adds up to TWO! Man simply limits God!"

And i responded (with further testimony added):

Yes! "One and one adds up to two", you have that part right.

As for limiting Our FATHER and GOD? (John 20:17)
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/09/our-father-and-god-john-2017.html

Sadly, you have done so!

"The Messiah answered them, "Is it not written in your law, I(Our FATHER and GOD) said, You are gods"! If HE (Our FATHER and GOD) called them gods, unto whom The Word of GOD came. And The Scripture cannot be broken! How can you say of Him (The Messiah), Whom Our FATHER and GOD has sanctified, and sent into the world, "You blaspheme! Because I said, I am The Son of GOD"....... (John 10:34-36, Genesis 6:2,4, Job 2:8, 31:7, John 1:12, Philippians 2:15 etc.....)

Considering A LIE opens the door and allows temptation to enter in.......

Considering The LIE, rather than taking heed unto The Word of Our FATHER and GOD, is that which opened, and yet opens the door that allows temptation to enter in! (Genesis 3:1-6)
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2012/10/taking-bait-and-lies-are-swallowed-hook.html

Genesis 3:1-6 "Now the serpent was more subtle than any beast of the field which YHVH God had made. And he said unto the woman, "has GOD said, you shall not eat of every tree of the garden"? (a right response would have been Yes!)

But the woman said unto the serpent, "we may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden, but of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, GOD has said, "You shall not eat of it, neither shall you touch it (her words not GOD's Word), lest you die"! (Proverbs 10:19)

The Foundation of the world that was, and the evil world that IS! (Genesis 3, I John 2:15-17)

The Foundation, the beginning of the world that was and the evil world that is, IS The LIE
(Genesis 3:1-8, John 7:7; 8:44)  http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2011/05/come-out-of-her-my-people.html

For "the serpent said to the wo-man, 'You will not surely die'"! (Genesis 3:4)
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2012/10/taking-bait-and-lies-are-swallowed-hook.html

"And when the wo-man SAW that the tree was good for FOOD (the lust of the flesh), and that it was PLEASING to the eyes (the lust of the eye), and a tree to be desired to MAKE ONE WISE (the pride of life), she took of the fruit thereof and ate, and she gave of the fruit to her husband with her, and he did eat." (Genesis 3:6, I John 2:15-17)  http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2009/05/i-must-die.html

And such was the beginning of the world that was, a world that was ultimately destroyed by a "flood", wherein only eight souls, and the animals on Noah's Ark were saved"!

http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2014/10/love-not-world.html

Someone in India had testified, "May GOD bless us with wisdom so that we can turn into true Human beings!"

"True Human beings"?

"All things that you would have others do to you, do you even so unto them". 
(Matthew 7:12)

"And as you would that men should do to you, do you also to them likewise". 
(Luke 6:31)

"Let no man seek his own, but every man another's wealth".
(I Corinthians 10:24)

Yet sadly, the perverse and covetous worldly and/or religious souls(except it be The Active Faith as revealed in James 1:27) use and abuse "The Word of TRUTH" (which those of this world and/or religion's way call their 'bible") as they wrest The Scriptures unto their own destruction! (James 1:18, Psalms 56:5; 119:43, II Peter 3:16)

A portion of my testimony follows.......

Back in '91 i had been in "search of the church"(aka: ecclesia, which i now declare IS "The Family of Our FATHER and GOD") for almost 5 years, and had crisscrossed this place on earth they call the u.s.a. from Vermont to California and Washington to Florida.
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2011/07/family-of-faith-or-system-of-religion.html

And during that time i knew in my heart that "Our FATHER(CREATOR) and 
GOD(SPIRIT)" wanted me to give up my vocation(self-employed computer consultant, systems analyst) but i didn't know what i would, or could do, if i did quit. (John 20:17, Proverbs 3:5-6)

However, the experiences while on that journey revealed much and simplicity became a beacon for me. i had left most possessions (which actually possessed me) behind when i began my search in earnest, and i could load all my possessions into the back of a '76 ford courier pickup w/shell.


Then finally, in November of '91 while in Colorado, "i quit"!


It was then that i awoke from the "american dream" and said, "no more" to the

"american (worldly) way". (John 7:7, I John 2:15-17; 5:19, James 4:4, II Corinthians 6:17, Revelations 18:4)

January 24, 2017

ALL that IS Truly GOOD, IS SPIRIT! And needs be received.

Someone had commented: "Faith in SPIRIT and faith in matter are the two sides of the same coin. Faith like wisdom can not be acquired . It is a divine heritage of one's soul. Blessed is one who sees Timelessness in the passing moments!"

And i responded(with further testimony added):

Such a statement is but proof of The TRUTH as revealed in "The Word of TRUTH"! (James 1:18)

For TRUTH IS! There are multitudes of religious souls who "serve not The Messiah but their own belly; 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

As for your "two-sided coin"; faith in that which is temporal(made by man, or that which is here today yet gone tomorrow) is liken unto spitting into the wind, yet that which IS of The CREATOR can edify and increase one's Faith in The CREATOR!

"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

Such Faith Truly Matters!

"i want more of GOD and less of religion and politics"!

Someone had commented,  "i want more of GOD and less of religion and politics"! For "religions, especially organized religions, are man-made and are highly POLITICIZED!"

And i responded (with further testimony added):

YES!  And Mahatma Gandhi also REALized such when he testified, "whoever believes that religion has nothing to do with politics does not know what religion is"! And he also testified,"GOD has no religion".......  http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/07/earth-provides-enough-to-satisfy-every.html

Yet TRUTH IS! "Religion and government (politics) were and are yet 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)  http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/09/religion-was-and-is-yet-needful-for.html

Needful for those worldly and/or religious ones 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)

​Thankfully TRUTH IS! So Victory IS assured....... (I Esdras 3:10-4:41)

For TRUTH IS The Strongest Thing in, yet not of, the world! (I Esdras 3:10-4:41)
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/09/the-strongest-thing-in-world.html

Someone had commented, "Let us see who is living in their imaginations. Time will decide and the ultimate winner is truth."

And i responded(with further testimony added):

Your 'vision' is a bit distorted, more than likely because of your love for your own self("I",id, ego, pride)life; and/or your love for this evil world and/or it's things; and/or religion's way(For The Active Faith as revealed in James 1:27 is the only "Pure Religion and Undefiled")(Luke 9:23-24, I John 2:15-17, James 1:27; 4:4)    
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2009/05/i-must-die.html


For TRUTH IS! Faith HAS ALREADY WON The VICTORY over sin and death; this world and it's things; and religion's way in this day and age! (I John 5:4; 5:19, James 1:27, I Peter 1:17-21) http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2014/07/thankfully-faith-wins-victory-i-john-54.html

January 18, 2017

Because of religion's way, "The Way of TRUTH is evil spoken of"! (II Peter 2:2-3)

Someone had testified, "I take it you don't like the Mother of God? I wonder what happens on judgement day to those who say, "I treated your mother like dirt, with contention, lies, and dishonor" compared to those who say "with truth and integrity I loved and honored your mother as if she were my own"? Which of these two does your god condemn"?

And i responded: 


You continue to prove yourself to be but a "con"venient speaker who with "good sounding words and fair speeches evermore seeks to deceive the hearts of the simple"! (Romans 16:18)

http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/07/the-way-of-lies-that-gender-death-john.html

Simply i abhor paganism and witchcraft, both of which have their portion in and of The LIES that are of "the god of this evil world" and/or religion's way (except it be The Active Faith as revealed in James 1:27)! And especially the pagan catholic and christian ways of perversion, distortion, 'con'fusion, theo'ry'logy and every evil work! (II Corinthians 4:4, John 7:7: 8:44, James 1:27; 4:4, II Timothy 4:18)

"Rulers are not a terror to good works, but to the evil"? (Romans 13:3)

TRUTH IS!  Romans 13:3 DOES NOT bear witness unto worldly rulers in this day and age! 

For TRUTH IS! in this day and age (The NEW Covenant Age WAS, and IS, ever since that moment in time when The Messiah DID "Come Again" and "Quickly" when old jerusalem was destroyed), "The WHOLE world is under the control of the evil one. (John 7:7, I John 2:15-17; 5:19, James 4:4)
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2014/11/the-new-covenant-and-new-covenant-jew.html

http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2013/09/the-whole-world-not-just-portion-is.html

And "whoever would be a friend of this world is the enemy of Our FATHER and GOD"! (James 4:4)
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2014/09/whoever-would-be-friend-of-this-world.html

The Messiah testified, "The world does not hate you, but the world hates Me......." (John 7:7)

As The Messiah testified, so it is that i also testify, "the world does not hate you, but the world hates me", for i have been given the unction to testify that "the works (philosophy, education, technology, media, busyness, destruction, perversion, politics,,,,,,) of this world and/or religion's way (except The Active Faith as revealed in James 1:27) are EVIL"! (John 7:7, James 1:27; 4:4, Matthew 23:13-33)  http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2014/10/love-not-world.html
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/09/religion-was-and-is-yet-needful-for.html
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2015/10/how-can-i-be-but-sad-for-braindirtyed.html

So it is, "Whoever would be a friend of this world is the enemy of Our FATHER and GOD", for "The WHOLE world (not just a portion) is under the control of the evil one"....... (James 4:4, I John 5:19)
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2014/09/whoever-would-be-friend-of-this-world.html
http://asimpleandspirituallife.blogspot.com/2013/09/the-whole-world-not-just-portion-is.html

And most certainly things are getting 'progress'ively worse and worse, just as was prophesied, for "evil men and seducers ARE waxing worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived"! (II Timothy 3:13)
