Imprisoned by Sin The Cult Mind!

Gal.3:22 But the Scriptures imprisoned all things under sin, that the promise by faith in Jesus Christ might be given to those who believe.

We find a quandary and confusion in religion today by the teachings that if we read our bibles we will set us free! Yet, is there freedom in sin, or captivity? No! The lost of all freedom to mankind is told us in scriptures happened when sin entered into our world. That is when darkness and captivity started in the human race and continues into our own times!

John 8:32 You will know the truth, and the truth will make you free."{Psalm 119:45}

It is much like the illusion where a young man sets out to be the best judge in the world. He reads every book on the law, learns to speak the language of the law and becomes a might judge in the law. However, he himself discovers that he has issues which goes against the law, the law he loves so much condemns him!

Rom.7:8 But sin, finding occasion through the commandment, produced in me all kinds of coveting. For apart from the law, sin is dead. 7:9 I was alive apart from the law once, but when the commandment came, sin revived, and I died.
7:10 The commandment, which was for life, this I found to be for death;

Did his knowledge of law set him free or bring him into judgment and captivity? Did his love of the law prove him right or wrong?

Rom.7:19 For the good which I desire, I don't do; but the evil which I don't desire, that I practice. 7:20 But if what I don't desire, that I do, it is no more I that do it, but sin which dwells in me.
7:21 I find then the law, that, to me, while I desire to do good, evil is present.

Such is the illusion the apostle Paul spoke of above where he makes a profound statement to law lovers that the very scriptures they love, and spend every waking hour reading did not set them free of sin, but were allowed by God's own hand to imprison each one of us under judgment of sin! The very illusion false religion teaches bring a person into captivity making their lives dependent upon works of law to their religion to buy them merit giving them freedom of guilty from sin by the approval of men in their religion, by the very scriptures their religion is using making them captivity too sin!

1 John 4:18 There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear has punishment. He who fears is not made perfect in love.


Guilt is signally the most powerful tool false religion has to build its empire by? Let us ask ourselves a honest question? Would people serve God without the power of guilt? Now we will qualify that question by stating this? If we were to ask one-hundred people if they are honest, how many would say no? Now we ask the same group how many of them are liars? Even the most dishonest among us would not call themselves a liar, they would in fact defend themselves vigorously against such a charge! Yet, we know the truth, we live with that truth and accept the nature of all humans that few tell the truth or our honest all the time.

Romans 3:4 May it never be! Yes, let God be found true, but every man a liar. As it is written, "That you might be justified in your words, and might prevail when you come into judgment."{Psalm 51:4}

How many would serve God without guilt? Very few! Just as God's word tells us all men are liars, but few believe that truth, so to the same bible tells us very few will actually know God and serve him out of mankind. No matter if we love God's law, or God's word, it does not mean we love God, how can one say that? We can say so, because God's word the bible tells us the same thing. Loving something by sight and the actions it produces does not mean we love God who we cannot see without faith. It has been those that zealously loved God's law that destroyed all God's prophets including Christ.

John 5:39 "You search the Scriptures, because you think that in them you have eternal life; and these are they which testify about me.

Matthew 7:14 How{TR reads "Because" instead of "How"} narrow is the gate, and restricted is the way that leads to life! Few are those who find it.

The Unrighteous Lust For Power

The entire premise of freedom is found in one thing, and one thing only? That of forgiveness of our sins in the precious and priceless blood of Christ Jesus. That freedom is given to us without cost, without merit, and without out our zealously keeping the law that God tells us imprison us into sin bring us into captivity. It is the tool of unrighteous to use the word of God to enslave others into sin for a religion, and/or some private venture they have the need for us to support.

Romans 5:15 But the free gift isn't like the trespass. For if by the trespass of the one the many died, much more did the grace of God, and the gift by the grace of the one man, Jesus Christ, abound to the many. 5:16 The gift is not as through one who sinned: for the judgment came by one to condemnation, but the free gift came of many trespasses to justification.

Luke 6:37 Don't judge, and you won't be judged. Don't condemn, and you won't be condemned. Set free, and you will be set free.

Matthew 10:8 Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers{TR adds ", raise the dead"}, and cast out demons. Freely you received, so freely give.

We are all faced with this question constantly in this life, which is, do we give freely, or do we use the power of guilt to have our way with others? First, let us state some points? This world does not exist without guilt, it will not function without guilt, we could not build a business, or conduct in any manner without law and order creating guilt. It is the conscience of mankind that holds his feet to the fire to have a system of things governed by guilt through law, punishment, peer pressure that keeps society working. Guilt is the glue that binds society together for unity among all groups.

Romans 2:15 in that they show the work of the law written in their hearts, their conscience testifying with them, and their thoughts among themselves accusing or else excusing them)

We need not go into a vast discussion of this truth, the uses of group meetings are designed to judge how good or bad we are performing for any group in guilt of not doing enough, or a blessing for doing enough, they are by design to judge our conduct either good or bad. The old law of God did the same, but with one vast difference, no sinner could keep the law, so no matter how much we tried we could never meet the mark of keeping the law, which was, perfection without sin.

Romans 3:23 for all have sinned, and fall short of the glory of God;

Group And Cult Mind

God gave each person a conscience to judge right and wrong that does not mean we are sinless in God's eyes because we know right and wrong, don't be fooled like so many have been over the subject of conscience, and preaching it. No! It simply means, we all know right and wrong no matter how many excuses we have for our misconduct we are still a sinner, if we say we aren't we are a liar! When people complain about others misconduct which offends them then they are judged in their own conduct, they can't say they don't know when they hurt or offend others, or sin against them in word or deed.

Matt.7:12 Therefore whatever you desire for men to do to you, you shall also do to them; for this is the law and the prophets.

1 John 1:8 If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.

James.3:14 But if you have bitter jealousy and selfish ambition in your heart, don't boast and don't lie against the truth.
3:15 This wisdom is not that which comes down from above, but is earthly, sensual, and demonic.

What people don't realize often is that a conscience can be fined tuned to such a degree that they become diseased with constant legal wrangling to excuses their minds over rights and wrongs to where even the littlest in friction of law becomes the death penalty to themselves and others. The myth over group thinking and cult religious thinking is that somehow these stupid evil people were brain washed into a group that we would not let happen to us. In others words, we judge the end result, but not the simple progression that lead a person into complete control which any person can fall into bring them into a cult religion in the first place.

Titus 1:15 To the pure, all things are pure; but to those who are defiled and unbelieving, nothing is pure; but both their mind and their conscience are defiled.

2 Timothy 3:8 Even as Jannes and Jambres opposed Moses, so do these also oppose the truth; men corrupted in mind, reprobate concerning the faith.

The law is good! Yes, indeed it is! But what if a person seeking that goodness of law believing just as all false religion does, twicks their conscience to such a high degree by using the law that they define everything in their life by? So their mind is trapped into fighting over words in their mind and taking every relationship judging it by the same law? Soon or later everything is unclean, evil, and bad association. Why? Because simply put they are justifying their own conduct while looking to condemn others by a law that they are brought under judgment of sin and captivity by themselves!

Titus 3:9 but shun foolish questionings, genealogies, strife, and disputes about the law; for they are unprofitable and vain.

That person will find that even the people in their own group fall short of their judgments. Is that not a disease mind? Possessed with a perfect standard that bring everything into guilt and sin, where no one has any good motives? Yes, that is what people fail or refuse to understand how so many can be drawn into a cult religion. The natural process needs no help from anyone, but can start with the simple teaching of works of law leading us down a path in trying to prove ourselves righteous by application of the scriptures, which as we were told imprison us into sin causing us and everyone around us problem where we try to free ourselves by more application of the scriptures leading us deeper and deeper into a diseased mind.

Romans 9:32 Why? Because they didn't seek it by faith, but as it were by works of the law. They stumbled over the stumbling stone;

Romans 4:15 For the law works wrath, for where there is no law, neither is there disobedience.

Romans 11:6 And if by grace, then it is no longer of works; otherwise grace is no longer grace. But if it is of works, it is no longer grace; otherwise work is no longer work.

Where else can one practice such judgment and be accepted in this world? The practice of guilt by “truth”, that is, by what the scriptures teaches truth of sin is the very life and manner the person lives in. Without that power of guilt by the scriptures the person feels lost, insecure, and every time they feel fear which is often they rush right back into the security safety zone by judging others with their religious training found from their bible's which has served them so well over the years.

Romans 5:16 The gift is not as through one who sinned: for the judgment came by one to condemnation, but the free gift came of many trespasses to justification.

Romans 14:10 But you, why do you judge your brother? Or you again, why do you despise your brother? For we will all stand before the judgment seat of Christ.

This is where cult religion has hold over peoples lives, where they accept all kinds of evils and lies because they cannot fit in anywhere else in this life. They are forced to defend and stay in a corrupted false teaching of their religion because their conscience is defiled with the sickness of using the power of guilt to keep control of their lives and all those in their lives.

1 Corinthians 4:3 But with me it is a very small thing that I should be judged by you, or by man's judgment. Yes, I don't judge my own self.


When a person offer us freedom by guilt (sin) they are a liar rather they realize it or not? It much like the salesman offering us freedom through buying his product than the person is enslaved to the payments and all the pain of working and fighting with their mate over making payments. If freedom is found in guilt (sin) then freedom does not exist for Christian's if judged by the teaching of religion.

Romans 8:8 Those who are in the flesh can't please God.

Romans 8:9 But you are not in the flesh but in the Spirit, if it is so that the Spirit of God dwells in you. But if any man doesn't have the Spirit of Christ, he is not his.

Romans 8:12 So then, brothers, we are debtors, not to the flesh, to live after the flesh.

The core teaching of Christ was giving not receiving. When a person tricks people into thinking that giving goes to their religion, or to their person so they can run a business that is not freedom it is a unrighteous uses of what each of us are to have freely in Christ while those using control by guilt entitle themselves as having something special or more important than us causing, which makes the humble guilty for personal gains to support their pet projects, or teaching skills.

1 Corinthians 4:7 For who makes you different? And what do you have that you didn't receive? But if you did receive it, why do you boast as if you had not received it?

What do all Christian's have that they did not receive? Isn't that the starting point, what than can we give someone by making them guilty that they have not already received freely in Christ? Well, it is an illusion by use of scriptural knowledge that enslaves us. That we owe a payment of debt for those teaching us the scriptures. But let us note once more it is the same scriptures that enslave us to sin which is not freedom, but captivity!

Rom.13:8 Owe no one anything, except to love one another; for he who loves his neighbor has fulfilled the law.

Romans 3:24 being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus;

Romans 8:32 He who didn't spare his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how would he not also with him freely give us all things?
1 Corinthians 2:12 But we received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit which is from God, that we might know the things that were freely given to us by God.

Ephesians 1:6 to the praise of the glory of his grace, by which he freely bestowed favor on us in the Beloved.

To break the cycle of abuse we must ask ourselves what the captor has that we so badly want? What is the hook? What is it going to cost us not to believe their so called truth, what truth? Freedom does not come from guilt (sin), it comes to us from one thing, and one thing only forgiveness of our sins in Christ Jesus. Can we trust unrighteous men not enslave us when the whole world is enslaved by sin? Fair question? If they themselves are enslaved to religion by (sin) why would we think they could offer us more freedom than Christ has freely gave us?

Galatians 5:13 For you, brothers, were called for freedom. Only don't use your freedom for gain to the flesh, but through love be servants to one another.

James 2:12 So speak, and so do, as men who are to be judged by a law of freedom.

1 Peter 2:16 as free, and not using your freedom for a cloak of wickedness, but as bondservants of God.

All Things Our Yours

1Cor.3:21 Therefore let no one boast in men. For all things are yours, 3:22 whether Paul, or Apollos, or Cephas, or the world, or life, or death, or things present, or things to come. All are yours, 3:23 and you are Christ's, and Christ is God's.

Jesus pointedly told his disciples anything less them him alone is a thief, but is that statement true or not? So is less or more? Is Christ enough or must we enslave ourselves to a teacher, a religion, to a business, or to anything under the Sun to have enough?

Philippians 4:11 Not that I speak in respect to lack, for I have learned in whatever state I am, to be content in it.

Luke 22:35 He said to them, "When I sent you out without purse, and wallet, and shoes, did you lack anything?" They said, "Nothing."

Matthew 6:33 But seek first God's Kingdom, and his righteousness; and all these things will be given to you as well.

Matthew 7:7 "Ask, and it will be given you. Seek, and you will find. Knock, and it will be opened for you.

That is the million dollar question? Will Christ find the real faith on earth upon his return? To believe by faith, and what real faith is going to cost us? Have we calculate what real faith cost us, or do we even know? Well, for certain it will cost us this world, which means in context everything that is built from guilt of sin, and supported by a system of thing in all the world. If our family is built by guilt of sin then we will lose it, if our religion is built by the guilt of sin like the world is, we will lose it, if our business is built by guilt of sin like the world we will lose it. Nothing in Christ is of this world, nothing in Christ is built by the guilt of sin, not even the way most of us were taught from our bible, which was define for us by sin and guilt was use to keep us serving Christ!

Luke 18:8 I tell you that he will avenge them quickly. Nevertheless, when the Son of Man comes, will he find faith on the earth?"

Hebrews 11:1 Now faith is assurance of things hoped for, proof of things not seen.

Hebrews 11:3 By faith, we understand that the universe has been framed by the word of God, so that what is seen has not been made out of things which are visible.

Heb.11:32 What more shall I say? For the time would fail me if I told of Gideon, Barak, Samson, Jephthah, David, Samuel, and the prophets;
11:33 who, through faith subdued kingdoms, worked out righteousness, obtained promises, stopped the mouths of lions,{Daniel 6:22-23}
11:34 quenched the power of fire,{Daniel 3:1-30} escaped the edge of the sword,{1 Kings 19:1-3; 2 Kings 6:31-7:20} from weakness were made strong, grew mighty in war, and caused foreign armies to flee.
11:35 Women received their dead by resurrection.{1 Kings 19:1-3; 2 Kings 6:31-7:20} Others were tortured, not accepting their deliverance, that they might obtain a better resurrection.
11:36 Others were tried by mocking and scourging, yes, moreover by bonds and imprisonment.
11:37 They were stoned.{2 Chronicles 24:20-21} They were sawn apart. They were tempted. They were slain with the sword.{Jeremiah 26:20-23; 1 Kings 19:10} They went around in sheep skins and in goat skins; being destitute, afflicted, ill-treated
11:38 (of whom the world was not worthy), wandering in deserts, mountains, caves, and the holes of the earth.
11:39 These all, having had testimony given to them through their faith, didn't receive the promise,
11:40 God having provided some better thing concerning us, so that apart from us they should not be made perfect.

We will lose our reputation if it is built from guilt of this world we will lose it! but how can Christ be more? First, we must stop believing the lie that Christ is not enough that something is lacking in him, so we must go out somewhere else to get the spiritual food needed? If we think that we are enslaved to our fleshes and its thinking.

1 Peter 1:5 who by the power of God are guarded through faith for a salvation ready to be revealed in the last time.

Ephesians 3:20 Now to him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us.

Ephesians 1:19 and what is the exceeding greatness of his power toward us who believe, according to that working of the strength of his might

Ephesians 1:21 far above all rule, and authority, and power, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this age, but also in that which is to come.

Nothing lacks in Christ for those belonging to his body. That is the standard of faith we must have, and/or obtain to in Christ. In Christ is all of God's power, in Christ is all of God's treasure for mankind, in Christ is all the truth we ever need to be filled with, and made righteous by. In Christ is God's Holy Spirit that feeds and teach each body member the truth.

Matt.7:7 "Ask, and it will be given you. Seek, and you will find. Knock, and it will be opened for you. 7:8 For everyone who asks receives. He who seeks finds. To him who knocks it will be opened.
7:9 Or who is there among you, who, if his son asks him for bread, will give him a stone? 7:10 Or if he asks for a fish, who will give him a serpent? 7:11 If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in heaven give good things to those who ask him!

Anything less than Christ is a thief that will enslave us into sin by guilt fro some works of law we must do to rid ourselves of guilt in pleasing men, and/or a religion.

John 10:1 "Most certainly, I tell you, one who doesn't enter by the door into the sheep fold, but climbs up some other way, the same is a thief and a robber.

John 10:10 The thief only comes to steal, kill, and destroy. I came that they may have life, and may have it abundantly.

Resting in Christ

Resting in Christ is not impossible it requires faith, something God gladly gives us freely! Yet, to help us understand resting in Christ what it means is we are not resting in ourselves at all. In fact, we don't trust our own judgment of the flesh, we don't trust our flesh not to mislead us. We know without doubt what in our flesh, its not game, or a question if it right or wrong it is already told us. The flesh and all of its desires are enslaved to sin by God's scriptures, and not one thing in our flesh is freedom or truth. Nothing good is found in our flesh to serve God with or find true freedom in!

Rom. 7:18 For I know that in me, that is, in my flesh, dwells no good thing. For desire is present with me, but I don't find it doing that which is good.

Ps. 90:8 You have set our iniquities before you, our secret sins in the light of your presence. 90:9 For all our days have passed away in your wrath. We bring our years to an end as a sigh. 90:10 The days of our years are seventy, or even by reason of strength eighty years; yet their pride is but labor and sorrow, for it passes quickly, and we fly away. 90:11 Who knows the power of your anger, your wrath according to the fear that is due to you?
90:12 So teach us to number our days, that we may gain a heart of wisdom.

However, if we believe by faith everything good dwells in Christ every decision, ever actions is good fruits and God's works then we can rest our hopes in him alone we lack nothing good. We only lack in this world, in our flesh, and in the flesh of others, but not in Christ.

Romans 3:22 even the righteousness of God through faith in Jesus Christ to all and on all those who believe. For there is no distinction.

Romans 8:34 Who is he who condemns? It is Christ who died, yes rather, who was raised from the dead, who is at the right hand of God, who also makes intercession for us.

Romans 15:7 Therefore accept one another, even as Christ also accepted you,{TR reads "us" instead of "you"} to the glory of God.

Romans 15:18 For I will not dare to speak of any things except those which Christ worked through me, for the obedience of the Gentiles, by word and deed.

1 Corinthians 1:9 God is faithful, through whom you were called into the fellowship of his Son, Jesus Christ, our Lord.

1 Corinthians 1:30 But of him, you are in Christ Jesus, who was made to us wisdom from God, and righteousness and sanctification, and redemption:

1 Corinthians 2:2 For I determined not to know anything among you, except Jesus Christ, and him crucified.

1 Corinthians 8:6 yet to us there is one God, the Father, of whom are all things, and we for him; and one Lord, Jesus Christ, through whom are all things, and we live through him.

Now we are forced to stop working in our flesh to prove we are doing something for God. We are forced to trust first, and rest to have the free gifts of God. We must take all the power away from our flesh to have the truth. Yes, we lose evil and gain good, the treasure of heaven, we are not known by this world, we will not get the praise of this world, because they do not know the Christ in Spirit and truth, subsequently, they do not know us either if we are in Christ hidden from the flesh.

Colossians 3:3 For you died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God.

John 15:19 If you were of the world, the world would love its own. But because you are not of the world, since I chose you out of the world, therefore the world hates you.

John 14:17 the Spirit of truth, whom the world can't receive; for it doesn't see him, neither knows him. You know him, for he lives with you, and will be in you.

1 John 4:5 They are of the world. Therefore they speak of the world, and the world hears them.

1 John 2:15 Don't love the world, neither the things that are in the world. If anyone loves the world, the Father's love isn't in him.

What We Demand

Let us understand the flesh demands, but the Spirit gives freely, if we are demanding association we are missing the Spirit that freely gives us association with Christ and all that we need in human association as well. If we are demanding a group, a teacher, more information, we cannot hear the Spirit which does not lie, it gives freely without demands, it is the flesh that demands not the Spirit, but we may be prevent from hearing by our demands in our flesh, which is always driven by fears, not trust and resting.

James. 3:17 But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceful, gentle, reasonable, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy. 3:18 Now the fruit of righteousness is sown in peace by those who make peace.

Christ is not old, so one cannot teach new light, everything we need is in Christ all truth of God is there not lost, nor old, but living mightily in Christ live if we have faith. Living in the incorruptible everlasting life of Christ so precious that God speaks of it as perfect flawless stones. Treasures not found on earth, or found by men in dead scrolls. But living in power and truth ready to be given us by faith.

Galatians 2:20 I have been crucified with Christ, and it is no longer I that live, but Christ living in me. That life which I now live in the flesh, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself up for me.

Hebrews 4:12 For the word of God is living, and active, and sharper than any two-edged sword, and piercing even to the dividing of soul and spirit, of both joints and marrow, and is able to discern the thoughts and intentions of the heart.

1 Peter 2:5 You also, as living stones, are built up as a spiritual house, to be a holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God through Jesus Christ.

Those that have had the truth, that is, Christ Jesus revealed to them did so by putting faith in him alone. No act (work) did they do, but faith, can they boast in. Once in faith living in Christ nothing given them can come through polluted hands of man of their own will of the flesh. It must be reveal to them by faith in Christ.

1 Corinthians 2:10 But to us, God revealed them through the Spirit. For the Spirit searches all things, yes, the deep things of God.

2 Corinthians 3:3 being revealed that you are a letter of Christ, served by us, written not with ink, but with the Spirit of the living God; not in tablets of stone, but in tablets that are hearts of flesh.

2 Corinthians 4:10 always carrying in the body the putting to death of the Lord Jesus, that the life of Jesus may also be revealed in our body.

There is no other food that is eternal life man can lay claim to, by finding or preaching that gives a person truth. Our truth is not the scriptures alone, but Christ his living life indwelling us by the power of God's Spirit that feeds us. Without the life of Christ we are not his, or do we know the truth, nor are we feed by his mind into eternal life by the scriptures alone. No, but that is where false religion is today that living in sin and guilt which enslave others through a so called good motives of teachings them, while the teacher cannot get rid of sin in themselves by applying the scriptures in works of law.

Galatians 3:2 I just want to learn this from you. Did you receive the Spirit by the works of the law, or by hearing of faith?

Galatians 3:5 He therefore who supplies the Spirit to you, and works miracles among you, does he do it by the works of the law, or by hearing of faith?

Galatians 3:10 For as many as are of the works of the law are under a curse. For it is written, "Cursed is everyone who doesn't continue in all things that are written in the book of the law, to do them."{Deuteronomy 27:26}

1 Peter 3:21 This is a symbol of baptism, which now saves you--not the putting away of the filth of the flesh, but the answer of a good conscience toward God, through the resurrection of Jesus Christ.

God's freedom comes from Christ to us from above, not below, by teachings of men. Teaching of this world only give us an illusion of freedom that ends in death through corruption it is the Spirit that is life, and power of Christ life in us that is eternal life, nothing else, don't be fooled. Few men or woman teach from Spirit and truth, but rather guilt and control of your life, enslaving us to primary doctrines of sins of the flesh, enslaving us in repentance from dead works demanding our loyalty, our support to their own agenda driven by fears of the flesh.

Romans 8:3 For what the law couldn't do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God did, sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh and for sin, he condemned sin in the flesh;

Romans 8:6 For the mind of the flesh is death, but the mind of the Spirit is life and peace;

Romans 8:7 because the mind of the flesh is hostile towards God; for it is not subject to God's law, neither indeed can it be.

Romans 8:8 Those who are in the flesh can't please God.

Heb. 6:1 Therefore leaving the doctrine of the first principles of Christ, let us press on to perfection--not laying again a foundation of repentance from dead works, of faith toward God,
6:2 of the teaching of baptisms, of laying on of hands, of resurrection of the dead, and of eternal judgment.
6:3 This will we do, if God permits.
6:4 For concerning those who were once enlightened and tasted of the heavenly gift, and were made partakers of the Holy Spirit,
6:5 and tasted the good word of God, and the powers of the age to come,

If we teach, let us teach from unmerited love, let us teach as we have been forgiven freely without debt, let us owe no one anything but the love we have been shown in Christ. Let us not demand, let us not have a bag of debts we remind other to pay us so we can gain something in our flesh from them. Let us not lead, let us get out of the way, let us understand it is Christ the head of his body that leads us by Spirit, we can do nothing but allow Christ to feed and take care of his body by us encouraging others to trust and do the same. In those teaching we lose all the power of this world, we then are no part of this world and its evil gains.

Matt.23:7 And words of respect in the market-places, and to be named by men, Teacher. 23:8 But you may not be named Teacher: for one is your teacher, and you are all brothers.
23:9 And give no man the name of father on earth: because one is your Father, who is in heaven. 23:10 And you may not be named guides: because one is your Guide, even Christ. 23:11 But let the greatest among you be your servant. 23:12 And whoever makes himself high will be made low, and whoever makes himself low will be made high.
