Faith Vs Religious Laws

Almost all of the world’s religions and spiritual philosophies are based on following a strict set of rules.

Today we hear, “The 7 Steps to Happiness” in Personal Development, or “The Ten Commandments” in Religion.

The principal is the same, that you can achieve happiness by following these designated Spiritual Laws or Principals.

Of course, what happens to us if we fail to live up to the high expectations of these Laws?

We are then declared a failure, and we experience Guilt and Rejection, which then becomes a major reason why many people forsake the Religion of their childhood.

Paul addresses this issue in his Letter to the Roman Church, Ch4V13 AMP,

“For the Promise to Abraham or to his descendants that he would be the HEIR OF THE WORLD..”

Has Paul got it wrong here? Should he be saying that the ‘Heir of Heaven’ is the Promise to Abraham?

If Paul were to say this about the HEIR OF THE WORLD in many Congregations today there would be shock and outrage.

Well meaning Religious people may respond,

“How dare Paul say that Abraham would be the ‘Heir of the World’, doesn’t Paul know that our Religion has nothing to do with this earthly plane? We will have to tell Paul that our religious practices are all about a Spiritual Rulebook to get us to Heaven”

Romans Ch4V13 AMP cont,

“that he would be HEIR OF THE WORLD was not through observing the requirements of the LAW,

But through the Righteousness of Faith.”

If you are going to Receive the Promises of God in this life, it is not going to come through Religious Laws, no matter how right you think they are. We are not saying that there is anything inherently wrong with Religious Laws, as in some cases they form the social fabric of a community.

But Abraham discovered that he could not inherit the Promises of God and enjoy the Blessing by Playing Religious Rulebook Games. Abraham Believed God’s Promises and this was counted as the Righteousness of Faith, which gave him Right Standing with God by Grace.

What is the purpose of the Religious Rule Book?

To show us where we are Trespassing into areas that are opening up a Portal to the Curse.

Would you like to be Guilt Free?

The solution to the Guilt problem is not immediately obvious to most people because the Political Correctness Agenda we have been taught been taught has confused us as to the cause of our own Guilt.

You may have been told by a University Professor that there is no such thing as Sin, and that it was the invention of the Ruling Classes to keep the population under “Mind Control” through the use of Guilt.

But if this is the case, why is there more people in the Psychologist and Psychiatrist Offices than ever before, who don’t believe in the concept of Sin?

If you cannot determine the cause of your own Guilt, you are not going to be able to cure it.

In his Letter to the Roman Church, Paul reveals the Secret to overcoming Guilt.

In Romans Chapter 4V1 AMP Paul states,

“What then shall we say that Abraham, our forefather humanly speaking, has found?”

Abraham was a leader at the time who discovered a Spiritual Secret that profoundly changed his life, and empowered him to deal with the Guilt of his own personal failures.

Paul was not discussing Abraham because he lived the life of a pious Monk in a Monastery in the middle of the desert, in fact Abraham was very much a ‘man of the world’.

Abraham became an exciting and dynamic leader because the Secret to overcoming Guilt was revealed to him by God.

Romans 4V1, AMP

“Has he obtained a favored standing?”

Paul raises this question to show us how we can beat Guilt and obtain a favored standing with Jesus Christ our Lord.

Romans 4V2, AMP,

“For if Abraham was justified, that is acquitted from the Guilt of his Sins by works, those things that he did which were good, he has something to boast about, but not before God.”

Some people think that the way to beat Guilt is with excessive alcohol and illicit drugs.

Other religious people believe that they have to earn a reprieve from Guilt through such activities as Repetitive Prayers, Lighting Incense Sticks or Candles, Particular Prayer Beads, Meditation Techniques, Hallucinogenic and Psychedelic Drug Rituals, Observances of Holy or Special Days, Occultism, Special Diets, and so on.

Abraham discovered a way to beat his Guilt without having to resort to Legalistic Religious Formulas or Drugs.

Romans 4V3, AMP,

“For what does the Scripture say, ABRAHAM BELIEVED IN GOD AND IT WAS CREDITED TO HIS ACCOUNT AS RIGHTEOUSNESS, right living, right standing with God.”

The reason that Abraham had Right Standing with God credited to his Spiritual Account, was because Abraham was prepared to Believe God’s Word.

Are you willing to Believe God’s Word, or do you think that you have to earn a reprieve for your Guilt by performing endless Religious Rituals?

Romans 4V4, AMP,

“Now to a laborer, his wages are not credited as a favor or a gift, but as an obligation,

something owed to him.”

Paul is using this illustration to show us that no amount of participating in Religious Rituals can earn us a favored standing with God.

As a young boy I used to recite certain prayers over and over and over again, until I could fall asleep with a sense that somehow I had pleased God. I had the erroneous idea that if I were to recite these Prayers a number of times, then God would owe me His Forgiveness and His Favor.

Romans 4V 5 AMP,

“But to the one who does not work, that is, the one who does not try to earn his Salvation by doing good”

This does not mean that God is against us doing good works or being involved in Social Programs, as this is about how your Salvation eradicates your Guilt.

Romans 4V5 AMP continued,

“But Believes and completely trusts in Him who justifies the ungodly”

This explains very clearly that the Key to completely overcoming Guilt is to receive the Grace of our Lord Jesus Christ,

who justifies the Guilty.

Romans 4V5 AMP continued,

“his Faith is Credited to him as Righteousness, Right Standing with God”.

So it boils down to what you Believe.

Do you Believe that you have to earn your Right Standing with God with Brownie Points?

If so, will your Inner Critic will be forever pointing out your shortcomings?

By Believing that you have been made the Righteousness of God in Christ Jesus by Grace,

you will no longer be troubled by Guilt.

Secret Wisdom of Paul – Declared Blameless

Would you like to completely overcome your Guilt issues?

People with Unresolved Guilt Complexes are filling the Offices of Psychologists and Psychiatrists today.

Playing the Blame Card on others and on ‘society’, is a favorite way to avoid taking responsibility and creating a solution for the Guilt that we suffer from.

Romans Ch5 has the answer for all of our psychological complexes.

Paul explains in Romans Ch5V1 AMP,

“Therefore, since we have been justified, that is, acquitted of Sin,

Declared Blameless before God, by Faith”

We can see from this that justification means that we have been acquitted from the Guilt of Sin,

and that we have subsequently been declared blameless before the Heavenly Court of Justice.

But there is a proviso in this declaration, and that is that we have to believe it.

If you were to stand before a Local Court,

and the Judge declared you innocent of something that you were accused of,

and you were to remark,

“I can’t believe that declaration Judge,

what do I need to do to prove to you that I’m innocent?”,

the Judge would think that you did not understand his declaration.

This is the way many Religious people are today,

they don’t understand that we have been declared righteous by Faith,

and are trying to create their own Guilt Complex remedies.

These include Praying multiple times per day at certain intervals,

lighting Candles and incense to appease idols,

strict dietary requirements,

observances of particular holy days,

and excessive alcohol and illicit drugs.

If you do not Believe that you have been Declared Blameless before the Heavenly Court of Justice,

you are going to search for some other way to appease your Guilt.

Paul continues,

“Let us grasp the fact that we have Peace with God,

and the Joy of Reconciliation with Him,

through our Lord Jesus Christ, the Messiah, the Anointed.”

What does the Trespass of the first man Adam actually mean?

When Adam trespassed,

he opened a portal into the world of darkness that he was not able to close through his own efforts.

The reason that you suffer from Guilt Complexes before you accept Jesus Christ as your Saviour,

is that you have no way of closing this portal into darkness over your life.

Your guilty feelings will not leave you, no matter how much drugs and alcohol you consume,

and your Porn and Gambling addictions are gaining more and more control over your life.

As soon as you accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour,

the Darkness Portal immediately closes,

and you experience a Heavenly Peace and Joy that you haven’t previously known.

Do you want to close the Darkness Portal over your life?

Secret Wisdom of Paul – Legal Rights

Paul Revealed the Secret Wisdom given to him by Jesus Christ in his Letter to the Romans.

In Romans 5V17 AMP

“For if by the Trespass of the one, Adam”

It is very interesting that the AMP used the word ‘Trespass’ to describe the infringement made by Adam, the First Man. If you trespass on a property, you may be breaking the law if your act of trespassing on that property is not permitted.

Trespass in the context of the Secret Wisdom of Paul means to ‘Sin’.

As a result of the ongoing indoctrination of the Political Correctness Agenda, we have been led to believe that there is no such thing as Sin.

Sin is purported to be a supposed invention of the male patriarchy to keep people subjugated.

But when we understand that to Sin is to Spiritually Trespass into a forbidden area,

the hidden Wisdom of Heaven begins to open up to us.

Adam stepped over the line, and entered into a realm that he had no right to be in. As a result, he opened the doorway to Hell in his life.

If you decide to Sin in anyway, there are consequences for your Spiritual Trespass, that either you will have to pay for, or someone else will have to pay the price for you.

Romans Ch5V17 continues,

“Death reigned through the one, Adam”

Through this one act of Spiritual Trespass into unlawful territory,

Death was given a Legal Right to reign over Adam’s life.

Are you giving Spiritual Death a Legal Right to Reign over your Life?

In Romans 5v1 AMP,

Paul describes our legal release from the penalty of Spiritual Trespass,

“Therefore, since we have been justified, that is acquitted of Sin,

declared Blameless before God by Faith,”

What Paul is describing here is how to activate your acquittal of the serious Sin of Spiritual Trespass.

We have all ventured into a Spiritual Territory that we have no right to be in.

Many of us find that we are trapped in this Spiritual Territory where we have Trespassed into,

without knowing how to get out.

It could be an addiction to Gambling, Porn, Drugs or Alcohol that has us trapped.

The first step to being released from the Reign of Spiritual Death,

is to receive our acquittal by Faith.

Paul continues,

“Let us grasp the fact that we have Peace with God,”

Do you suffer from inner turmoil and restlessness?

If we have trespassed into the realm of Spiritual Death, we will find that the inner peace that we greatly desire is completely illusive.

No matter how much drugs or alcohol we consume, we cannot find the tranquility that we are looking for.

Spiritual death has us trapped, but there is a way of escape.

The Inner Peace that we are looking for comes from our Reconciliation with our Lord Jesus Christ.

Notice that Paul does not say,

“There are 7 Religious Rules that you must follow to be delivered from Spiritual Death”.

But on the contrary,

Paul describes our deliverance from Spiritual Death through a Relationship.

“And the joy of Reconciliation with Him through our Lord Jesus Christ, our Messiah, the Anointed”.

This shatters the illusion that Praying a certain number of times per day will deliver us from the Spiritual Death trap.

It’s not what you do that pays the price for your Spiritual Trespass, it is what Jesus Christ has already done for you.

All you have to do is exercise your Faith in the finished Work of Christ.

Man made Religion loves to tell us formulas that we must follow in order to deliver us from Spiritual Death, but these rules and ‘recipes’ are in serious error because they fail to account for our Legal Rights in Christ Jesus.

Can You Change? Inspiration from Radiohead – Creep

One of the most common remarks made by skeptics is that,

“People Never Change!”.

This pessimistic character reference is never made about someone’s positive attributes, only about their negative or dark side.

The sad fact is that in most cases this assessment of not changing is true.

However, on the optimistic side you don’t hear anyone saying,

“She’s a happy and cheerful type, she will never change, once a person is bright and joyful they will never be bad tempered ever again. These carefree people don’t have a bleak day in their entire lives and have no need for any kind of medication or alcohol.”

But just let someone go through a brief bout of depression, and all the cynics are suddenly trained psychiatrists,

“Well, in my highly regarded opinion, once you are depressed you now have a serious medical condition for life, you will never get over it completely because it’s in your DNA. You know they have found that some people are predisposed to depression and there is nothing you can do about it. I heard a celebrity say on social media that they can only deal with their despair through lots of booze and coke, because the restlessness is part of who they really are. More people should show this kind of celeb honesty and reveal their weltschmerz or melancholy nature, and admit that they are hopeless addicts.”

It’s almost is if the idea now that You Can Change is forbidden or denigrated.

Just say that You Want To Change, and you will hear endless excuses and reasons why you can’t Change from well meaning Counsellors.

Why are there so many people who don’t want you to Change, and so few who will actually help you?

“Just accept who you are”,

“Why do you want to change?”,

“Don’t get your hopes up, I tried to change but I finally had to admit that I was powerless in the face of my Gambling Addiction.”

Radiohead’s Song ‘Creep’ describes the situation brilliantly,

“When you were here before,

Couldn’t look you in the eye,

You’re just like an Angel,

Your skin makes me cry”

The reason you couldn’t look her in the eye is because you were focusing inwardly on your own inadequacies,

instead of thinking about her needs,

So firstly, ask yourself ‘What are her needs?’.

By doing this you immediately bring yourself out of fixating on your Self.

Secondly, You were comparing your weaknesses to her seeming perfection,

making this comparison made you even more paranoid,

so think about your good points and believe in yourself,

and suddenly you will be able to compliment her without feeling bad about your Self.

The Radiohead Song Creep continues,

“You float like a feather,

In a beautiful world,

I wish I was special,

You’re so special”

What you are really saying is that you are envious of her lovely demeanor

because you really feel bad about yourself.

So if you could learn a technique to change the way you feel about your Self,

anywhere and anytime without illicit drugs or alcohol,

then you could also therefore feel great about her?

‘Creep’ continues,

“But I’m a creep

I’m a weirdo,

What the hell am I doin here?,

I don’t belong here”

Each of us have an Inner Critic that is constantly pointing out our flaws to ourselves,

but you can switch it off,

not by suppressing it,

not by drowning it at the pub, nobody told you that illicit drugs only make it worse,

not by idolizing movie stars,

But by Switching On your Belief Button.

Your Belief Button empowers you to Believe in Your Self,

but only You can Switch it on,

and if you don’t you will keep thinking that you’re a creep and weird,

and she will run away from you.

To keep your Belief Button switched on,

make Positive Affirmations about yourself everyday.

Somebody knows how hard You Try

Is there Someone who knows how hard you try?

Craig Holme Spiritual Inspiration

It sometimes feels like that ‘Nobody knows how hard you try’, especially when family or friends or your partner show a lack of appreciation for the effort that you put in.

It can be even worse when workmates try to take credit for your creative ideas or work or project management, and then try to proactively denigrate whatever your role has been to superiors.

You can choose to either ‘Sing the Blues’ about your current situation, or what is worse, to Play the Revenge Card and to angrily seek retribution.

As soon as you know that there is Someone taking an Account of your situation, your perspective on everything changes.

Some people lose their Faith in the Creator because they ask ‘Why do bad things happen to good people like me?’, and they think that if God was in control this negative circumstance would not have occurred.

However, when we…

Grace Vs Spiritual Law – Relationship

Those who believe that they are trying to please God by obeying Spiritual Laws, have not received a full Revelation of Grace.

Your heart searches for a Way to Please God by attempting to follow a Religious Rule Book, until you Receive the Grace of Jesus Christ.

Someone says, “I please God because I Pray two times per day, everyday without fail”.

Then a well meaning friend responds, “That’s not good enough, I Pray three times per day, because my spiritual leader has told me that unless you Pray and Meditate three times you are missing the mark”.

A very sincere religious person then interrupts, “Neither of you are anywhere near pious enough, I Pray and Meditate four times per day using my Prayer Beads, and I light three Candles with Incense Stick offerings, plus I strictly observe one day per Week as a Holy Day with fasting rituals. I aim to try to fulfill the Spiritual Law, whilst you both are just playing Religious Games.”

The Truth is that it doesn’t matter how many times you are reciting a ritual formula, what matters is whether you are in a personal relationship with Jesus Christ our Savior by Grace.

If you think that Praying a certain number of times per day is what pleases God, you will always have a nagging sense of condemnation from your own inner critic telling you that your prayers were not quite good enough.

The Peace of God’s Grace comes into your Heart by your Relationship with Jesus and not by Rituals.

Some genuine religious people have fallen into the trap of believing that their particular liturgy is what saves them, saying, “Our Catechism has clearly set out the liturgical principles, and that’s why I observe a certain day of the week as holy and why I abstain from certain foods, this is how I please God.”

If you are thinking this way, how is it working out for you in your life?

Is your heart filled with the Grace and Peace of Jesus, or do you need to light another Candle to appease your anxiety?

Paul explains the Way of Peace in Romans Ch 3 V19,

“Now we know that whatever the Spiritual Law says, it speaks to those who are UNDER the Spiritual Law, so that the excuses of every mouth may be silenced from protesting, and all the world may be held accountable to God and subject to His Judgement.’

The purpose of the Spiritual Law is to show us where we have missed it and why we need Grace, and it is not to be used as a point scoring exercise whereby we can show that we are better than everyone else through a ‘holier than thou’ attitude.

Paul could not be any clearer in Romans Ch3 V20,

“For no person will be justified, freed of guilt and declared righteous in his sight, by trying to Do The Works of the Spiritual Law.”

I’m Down, How Do I Get Back Up?

Are you saying to yourself, “I feel like I’ve been down for so long now, I don’t think I can get back up” ?

Bouncing Back from failure and setbacks is easier said than done.

Once you have failed in an area of your life, perhaps in marriage or business or anything else, your mind retains an emotional memory of the mistakes that you made.

To avoid the Pain of these memories, we tend to try to avoid similar situations in the future.

If you’ve been separated and you want to have a successful new relationship, would you like to have these uncomfortable memories healed?

The healing of your memories starts with releasing the power of forgiveness towards those who have done you wrong.

But, why do so few people truly forgive their ex partner or anyone else that they have conflicted with?

Why do we say that we have forgiven a person, but still hold onto secret bitterness towards them?

It’s because the emotionally charged memories are still very real and present, and we are reliving past events in our minds over and over again.

How do we receive Healing for these traumatic memories?

Some well meaning Professionals will say to you , “Just forget them”.

If it was that easy, everyone would just forget them, and we wouldn’t have the huge numbers of stress disorders and phobias that we see today.

Someone Quoting what Sigmund Freud said about phobias did not help you, it only made you feel more confused and guilty.

Someone else saying, “Science understands why you feel like you do, here take this pill, it will make you feel better”, didn’t help you either.

You don’t want drugs, you want a solution to your internal dilemma, because you don’t want to carry this baggage into your next relationship.

Then a ‘Meditation Teacher’ says , “Try my meditation classes’, but then you find out he has never had a successful relationship and is constantly whining about his ex’s.

Another Professional says to you, “It’s all a matter of your willpower, don’t be so weak.”

If you were feeling down before, did this has made you feel far worse?

Have all these ‘experts’ have left you feeling distraught, and that there must be a Better Way ?

To receive the healing of your memories, we have to acknowledge that we have come to the end of ourselves, and that we need the help of the Grace of God.

As you yield your heart to the Grace of Jesus Christ, you will find the Peace and Love that you are looking for.

The Love of Jesus extinguishes your trauma by His Grace, and not by your efforts.

Paul discusses this in Romans Ch1 V7 AMP,

“Grace to You and Peace, inner calm and spiritual well being, from God our Father and from the Lord Jesus Christ”.

If you have trouble seeing God as a Father figure, because your own father was less than perfect, then you can Receive the Grace of Jesus to heal that relationship painful memory also.

You don’t have to fix your memories before you can receive Grace, because we don’t have to qualify for Grace, as it is a Free Gift from our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

Do you want to be Happy?

Most of us think that happiness is fleeting, that we can feel happy on Sunday and then depressed because we have to go back to work on Monday.

So our happiness becomes dependent on our external circumstances, and for those of us with the ‘work blues’, this means just being happy on the weekend.

The atheistic Professors of Political Correctness openly mock Spirituality as being believed in by boring Religious Rulebook types, who are full of drudgery, because metaphysical ideas make people dependent upon ‘pie in the sky’ delusions.

They proclaim that the ‘opiate of the masses’ causes people to act contrary to human nature by following the Mosaic Law.

Whilst hypocritically at the same time, some of these disingenuous Political Orthodoxy Lecturers who are Trained how to close your mind to spiritual ideas, are secretly addicted to anti-depressants and illicit drugs and alcohol and gambling, because they are trying to hide their deep depression and unresolved anxiety.

It is true that If your Religion or Spirituality is based on a set of strict rules it will not be a source of joy to you, so in this context the Cancel Culture Thought Police are doing us a favor by ridiculing Spiritual Legalism.

If you want Sunshine in Your Heart, as spoken of by the great Charles Spurgeon, you need a Belief System where the source is Grace, and not Prayer Beads or Incense Rituals or Special Foods or Magic Incantations or Lighting Candles or Meditation Mantras or Special Formulas.

We are Happy because we have Received the Grace of Jesus, so we can be joyful in even the most difficult of circumstances.

Paul stated in Romans Ch 5V1 AMP

“Therefore since we have been Justified by Faith, that is acquitted of Sin, declared Blameless before God”

To be declared Blameless means that you are now Free of all Guilt, and can now enjoy your life without the negative emotions that were previously ‘dragging you down’.

The Religious Rule Book attitude cannot understand the reality that they are Justified by Faith, and seeks to add veneration of a certain day as holier than others, strict dietary requirements, Offerings to Idols, and other bondages.

Why not celebrate and rejoice over your Blameless Declaration and Stop Condemning yourself?

You are Declared Blameless and Not Guilty before God by the Grace of Jesus, and just because you have been told to feel like an Unworthy Sinner all the time doesn’t change this Truth about Who You are in Christ.

Paul continues Romans Ch5V1 AMP,

“Let us grasp the fact that we have Peace with God, and Joy of Reconciliation with Him through our Lord Jesus Christ, who is The Messiah, the Anointed.”

Why is it so hard for some Religious people to find this Peaceful and Joyful Pathway to Success?

They are not receiving the Blameless Declaration by Faith, but are trying to Earn it through “Frequent Flyer Points’ in their Religious Rulebook.

Notice that Paul did not say,

‘BUT, We have Peace with God only when we are following the Spiritual Rules to the letter, and after we have eaten a perfect diet, and attended the correct Rituals several times per day, and even then you cannot be sure because you’ve probably made mistakes.’

Paul also did NOT SAY,

‘BUT, Don’t get your hopes up because you can only experience this Peace when everything is going your way, because if you are experiencing difficulty you have probably Sinned’,

Neither did Paul say,

‘BUT, This Peace is only available to those of you who are perfectly following the Cancel Culture Agenda, you have to watch what you saying to make sure you are Politically Correct’.

You can Rejoice and be Happy unconditionally by Grace because you have been Declared Blameless in Christ Jesus.

How to Encounter Grace

Your Legal Rights under Spiritual Law -1

Your Legal Rights under the New Covenant of Grace.

Craig Holme Spiritual Inspiration

When we discuss our Legal Rights before the Courts of Heaven it is sometimes stated by Believers that they have trouble understanding these principles that we are explaining.

In fact, the more highly educated the person there is in some cases more confusion and perplexity by the concept that we have Rights bestowed upon us by Grace in the Commonwealth of the Kingdom of God.

Yet those same Politically Correct educated people tend to have an almost encyclopedic knowledge of their welfare rights under the legal systems of wherever they live.

Those who have been instructed with the secular foolishness of ‘Cancel Culture’ are able to explain the complicated ‘rights’ that they claim to be Self-entitled to verbatim.

Therefore, we can deduce that the reason that more Religious people do not know about their Legal Rights before the Courts of Heaven is not a lack of mental faculty or of…
