Continuation of the chapter 6

The Fruits of peace

5) Simply religious sincerity

To the contrary of this happy and balancing spiritual approach subjected to the repentance and the transformation of ourselves by Holy God three times, Father, Son and Holy Spirit that one follows by the faith, are others which produce the opposite result in our heart, of which we often draw the image from the good acts that we must multiply to be pleasant at God.

If we can then speak about simply religious sincerity, it is that they do not lead to a rewriting of the soul in the logic of the Spirit of God, but to the adoption by our carnal soul of additional rules to those already existing. The word “religious” does not become pejorative for all that, because it justifies on the contrary a great good will for the person in question. She is taken in trap by an authoritarian perseverance as well on herself as on others, who must then resemble to him more and more so that she approved them. This attitude then leads gradually to the reject of our errors from spontaneous reactions on those whom generated the circumstances of our sins. As long as in their presence we can be victorious of what we consider the evil, the author of the antagonistic situation in connection with our understanding remains somebody of acceptable but becomes a satanic good-for-nothing of whom we must protect ourselves if we fall into the error. We look at then the “bad” behaviors of the one who dragged us out of our limits, in order to look at us pure and just in the judgments which we bring on him, instead of us repentance of our faults.

We are not worse than others when we lapse into this carnal attitude. We are simply fallen into a trap of the enemy of our souls to remain in a lower spiritual dimension of the flesh, awaiting then the correction, as Adam and Eve did it. To protect oneself from the temptation of the evil, certain isolate themselves from the rest of the world by four stonewalls, in order to preserve their soul of the “perdition”. Others, confronted with the need to live in our society, put scandalmonger ramparts, scorn, hypocrisy or all other carnal spirits like barrier at their temptations.

It results from it of spiritual disabled persons, lame, and by direct consequence of cantankerous people, demanding, with many judgments. These people increase the dimension of their flesh by this attitude, for better to stifle their covetousness. They withdraw of their eyes and of the glance that the others could have on them what they consider being the “sin”, not to reproduce it. They are obviously these “poor wretch” that we will generally hear to accuse the others, “source of sin for them” and to push forward the name of God in the direction where Jacques Brel said, “as if the Good God walked under their shoes”.

This dimension is only misleading appearance of the enemy. The first misled, and thus the more to be pitied, are those they act that way, because they cut themselves of a possible victory as we have just seen it. They compare their soul with the word of God, to even see with what the Holy Spirit shows them so that they are repentant of it, but contrary to any good sense, they hide it, cover it, hide it with deepest of their soul, behind ramparts of stones or judgment.

The spiritual action that results from it is identical to that to humanly reject a spirit who dominates (attitude that we will not approach here) and whose Jesus describes us the process in (Matthew 12-43/45) But the unclean spirit, when he is gone out of a man, goes through dry places looking for rest, and getting it not.

Then he says, I will go back into my house from which I came out; and when he comes, he sees that there is no one in it, but that it has been made fair and clean.

Then he goes and takes with him seven other spirits worse than himself, and they go in and make it their living-place: and the last condition of that man is worse than the first. Even so will it be with this evil generation.//

It is thus of those whom, acting in the flesh, mask an attitude that they reject, as being above that, but that the Holy Spirit did not came to replace, for lack of repentance. This hypocritical attitude of religiosity, which makes them change the others rather than to change themselves, conduits unfortunately with becoming each day depend on the enemy of our souls, until falling sometimes into the religious fanaticism and fundamentalism. It is the fruit of this mechanism in the people no worse than others, associated with that which we already saw through Judas Iscariot, which however produced the crucifixion of Jesus (see page diagram: Divided heart).

We must however remain very clear; even if certain teachings in Christian nature can possibly generate more easily than others this attitudes sort, the problem remains individual. The personal behavior of each one will admittedly affect the spirit of group, since “the heart” of the group is built with the image of the individual soul, but any Christian is responsible for his own acts in front of God. No one will not be able to say while arriving in front of the Eternal “yes, but so-and-so said…”. Not! It is at that we give reason today that will do that we will be tomorrow, to the day when Jesus will come back. He said it, what is born from the flesh is flesh, and what is born from the Spirit is Esprit.

Does that want to say we must condemn these people who actually have of “God” only one appearance of external attitude? Obviously not! Their acts are and remain condemnable and cut them Divine Mercy as it is from any sin not repented, but they make part of the unfortunates that we all can be in a share of ourselves, for the only reason sometimes to be recognized of our entourage.

In order to offend nobody, we will say we all can be to fall to a place or another from our life, in a similar error at theirs. It is however necessary to remain realistic and open the eyes on ourselves. How many times indeed each one of us must recognize that we take no account of certain attitudes, by an shallow appearance for example, like if: we “had never touched it”? If we see ourselves reacting thus sometimes, it is the proof that we again and always must to examine us!

The religiosity is unfortunately in the heart of each one, since we all are descendant of Adam and Eve. It is not necessary besides to achieve an act to sin, to give reason to its covetousness in our hearts being sometimes worse at the eyes of God, because hypocritically lived then. Some are completely conscious of it, others a little less, and others not at all, but because they delude themselves and sometimes misuse much others, that would do of them Saints?

If we would want to somewhat play with words, that would more often make of them “Ace at saints 1”, because they always criticize what they are able “to sin, without making”, contrary to their assassinated victims who are sometimes able “to make, without sinning”. They remain in addition for those who are made holy by the Blood of Jesus and who follow them, the “Ace” which it is necessary to become to be pleasant at God. For the majority of them, the main hobbyhorse remains generally sexuality, as for better whipping their own desires. Generally, they do what Jesus denounces in (Matthew 23-1/4) Then Jesus said to the people and to his disciples: The scribes and the Pharisees have the authority of Moses; All things, then, which they give you orders to do, these do and keep: but do not take their works as your example, for they say and do not.

They make hard laws and put great weights on men’s backs; but they themselves will not put a finger to them.//

1) In French the rather fast pronunciation of “as à Saints”, is the same than “assassin”, i.e. “murder”. The author thus refers to the murderous words frequent between various Christian environments in France. The word "As" is in addition often employed to define the admiration granted to a singing or movie star or a champion. In this play with word he then underlines the idolatry of many Christians towards their spiritual guides who show for them a role of star, of superman.

Many unfortunately draws their references from God image through these people, because they are the head accusers of any balance that God wants to give. They are always the slanderers who keep reign the fear and never the lawyers of the others. They pollute the image of God and, God Himself that many persons confuse then with the  “Bogeyman ” who is the enemy of our souls.

Another very frequent image of God is the one that does of Him a “philosophy”, like we will see it further. They are the perdition of the world; since it is because of them that many are diverted of God. We can have given them reason in one or many parts of our life, but it is never too late so that the Grace of God allows in repentance to us. Jesus came for the ill persons, and not for the good health persons. If we find the least bit lame share in our soul, then we are with him, and he only asks to come to cure us. It is never too late to do the right thing, as much as we have life. After…

Nobody is at the shelter of the judgment of God and must think that his position protect him from what we can read in (Matthew 7-15/23) Be on the watch for false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inside they are cruel wolves. By their fruits you will get knowledge of them. Do men get grapes from thorns or figs from thistles?

Even so, every good tree gives good fruit; but the bad tree gives evil fruit. It is not possible for a good tree to give bad fruit, and a bad tree will not give good fruit. Every tree that does not give good fruit is cut down and put in the fire. So by their fruits you will get knowledge of them.

Not everyone who says to me, Lord, Lord, will go into the kingdom of heaven; but he who does the pleasure of my Father in heaven.

A great number will say to me on that day, Lord, Lord, were we not prophets in your name, and did we not by your name send out evil spirits, and by your name do works of power? And then will I say to them, I never had knowledge of you: go from me, you workers of evil.//

For God's, let us not give any more reason to the fear and the judgment. We did not read this passage for the others, but each one for ourselves, of which I do not make exception.

Once again we can thus say that Jesus did not come to give us an example to be followed, but demonstrates to the human his carnal incapacity to manage the dimension of the Spirit of God, and consequently to go into the true Love of his neighbor. Any human, whatever intelligent he have got, who thus rejects the dimension of the Holy Spirit is exposed to having to manage his life by this old exceeded software, just like the one who will be to enter the Christian life led by some interest that it is, different of the research of the kingdom of God already on this earth.

Certain indeed enter in the Christian life more by interest than by sincerity of heart of a real transformation of their own life. (Acts 8-18/22) Now when Simon saw that the Holy Spirit was given through the touch of the Apostles’ hands, he made them an offering of money, saying, Give me this power, so that when I put my hands on anyone he may get the Holy Spirit.

But Peter said, May your money come to destruction with you, because you had the idea that what is freely given by God may be got for a price. You have no part in this business, because your heart is not right before God. Let your heart be changed, and make prayer to God that you may have forgiveness for your evil thoughts.//

It is useful to come to aware that the spiritual field is all that there is of more real, even if we do not see it. Any reason not in conformity with the Spirit of God leads obligatorily to a carnal trap that will be closing in around early or late on its author. Whatever our armament made up of the baptism of the Holy Spirit or not, and the authority that God has gave us, one must not however leave inconsiderately to hunting to the “demons”. These attitudes can generate sometimes certain “miracles”, but if those do not lead to real the repentance of heart they are not used for nothing, that to lead us in extravagances once again religious, and beware then to be not clubbed.

It was thus in a biblical example at the time of the Acts of the Apostles, in the years thus which followed the terrestrial life of Jesus (Acts 19-13/17) But some of the Jews who went from place to place driving out evil spirits, took it on themselves to make use of the name of the Lord Jesus over those who had evil spirits, saying, I give you orders, by Jesus, whom Paul is preaching.

And there were seven sons of a man named Sceva, a Jew and a chief priest, who did this.

And the evil spirit, answering, said to them, I have knowledge of Jesus, and of Paul, but who are you?

And the man in whom the evil spirit was, jumping on them, was stronger than the two of them, and overcame them, so that they went running from that house, wounded and without their clothing. And this came to the ears of all those, Jews and Greeks, who were living at Ephesus; and fear came on them all, and the name of the Lord Jesus was made great.//

We will not extend more on the bad attitudes from the simply religious man to turn us in the next chapter towards the result unfortunately so harmful that all these carnal attitudes generate all over the world, that it is Christian or not.

It is the bad motive in our heart that we must aspire to discover with the assistance of God with an aim to repent us and to be one day made about it victorious, all the remainder is only vanity and… Vanity of vanities, it is it that still dominates over the world today, let’s hope we do not agree that it right!
