A loveless religion – is a Godless religion ..’ – Anthony Everest

You’d obviously find out that – my approach to these posts; from parts 1 – 6 have been taken from the xtain faith – but not limited to just what the bible says. As I’ve said previously mentioned, for me; ‘The bible is not the complete revelation of God’. The Holy Spirit is the greatest teacher – you’d ever need. ‪#‎HaveYouForgotten‬ ‪#‎BadReligion‬ ‪#‎WhoAmIToJudge‬.

You need people connected to this comforter, to break it down and open up those scriptures – before false prophets, twist them into their own wicked, or foolish  agendas. The Holy Spirit is the comforter. Jesus promised – on ascension to his heavenly home, to send us the comforter; the Holy Spirit – to reveal more unto us. Gods purpose; to his own. Not the bible!

Anthony Everest - MercyfulGrace.com

Just wanted to add that, I’ve just found out, how much I’ve forgotten, how much I love listening to classical and inspirational music, these days ..’ So chillingly peaceful. I recommend – Classic FM and a particular Christian Radio, if you are in the UK. I’m sure there are other stations, too – equally good. But I tend to catch these – at twilight, when I am writing, or composing. Its so refreshing!

tumblr_inline_n16aacg7QQ1rcxj9c

You may want to try it and a get a whole lot more juicy revelations about the love of Jesus to mankind, his revelations – plus more ..’ I also recommend TD Jakes Ministries ..’ He is one of the good guys  – so far. Hope it stays that way.  Human beings change. Jocye Meyer is also very pragmatic and practical. If they don’t work for you. Keep praying and ask God to reveal himself to you, personally.

Arèmúorin

Even thou, yes, the enemy has come to lift a standard, christ has come to lift; a much more higher standard unprecedented, than the ones before. Think, Ask, Believe, Receive. There is something beautiful thou, in Godly organised religions – when people unite in faith and in truth. Hope we all find the truth in Love*. A loveless religion is a Godless religion.

God after all – is still Love* & faithful to his promises, to his own. The beauty of love is – it is freewill. Not narrcissistic! He gave it to Adam., Eve, Abraham, Ishmael and even Lucifer, too.

MercyfulGrace Diaries with ‘Bad Religion’ – And The Institution (Part 4) by Aremuorin

@AnthonyEverest - MercyfulGrace

“Whether it’s politics or religion. It’s the same plot. They are just, simply, different characters “.  – Anthony Everest

I know some Christian’s both young and old, who ought to know better, who get vehemently crossed with their; inner circle, friends, when they engage – those; they, consider to be, non xtainly – enough, for them. I’m like – seriously. Is that what Jesus taught? These calibre’s, remind me the types who denied kids access to Jesus. Far from it. Did Jesus not befriend a whore, and was his Nan, ‘Rahab’ – not a whore?

The joke is, that; they – are the worst. Worse, than the very, alleged unbelievers – they’ve condemned outright. For the unbelievers came in their loving truths. While they the wannabe – religious fanatics, came; with their hateful – intolerance and heresies. #HaveYouForgotten #BadReligion #WhoAmIToJudge. 

I say to them – the same way; gays, are judged, and the harlots, are the ways – every one of those religious fanatics will be judged. Lets play this scenario out. If peradventure – God Is Real., and it transpires Hell is real and that the bible is legit; what you are actually saying is that -: If you eat pork – you are sinner and you are going to hell.

If you have sex out-of-wedlock – you are a sinner and going to hell. If you have tattoos – you are a sinner and you are going to hell. If you have sex with your spouse during her time of the month – you are a sinner, and you are going to hell. This is just a white wash!

Dont Judge - MercyfulGrace.com

Thank God for Jesus. We’d all be going to hell – in that case. So, why is Jesus’s Grace good enough for them; but not for the whores, or gays ..’ ? It was good enough for Lazarus (the leaper) and it was good enough for Mary Magdalene (the whore) – Jesus was! And if Jesus was good enough for them – Jesus is good enough for me and Jesus is good enough for you. You only have to believe. atone, and allow him in. He takes care of the rest. These ridiculous people need to go and read their bibles again and top up on the Holy Spirit.

Then, try again – before condemning; anyone in the name of God. I use gays and whores, as examples of the worst thing you could liken a sinner unto. There are lots of stereotyped, human behaviours; considered sin, to religious fanatics. Moses – who parted the red sea – was a murderer, himself, and that’s just one, of many character flawed, people, in the bible, who God used in mammoth ways. I think to be human is a sin – cuz humans aren’t perfect, and that’s the only crime to religion. Mercy!

1798900_10201432333761393_1094893722_o

This epidemic of self-professed – righteousness is a total delusion. Why do you think Jesus loved Mary Magdalene – (the outcast) above his disciples – and revealed the ‘Good News’ to her first – on resurrection day? Because – people like those wannabe religious fanatics, would keep it to themselves. Just as, they’ve tried to, write her out; of the gospels, even thou, she knew more about Jesus, than they. She was barely mentioned in the Bible. Neither credited with a full glorious, book of accounts, of her story.

God is love - MercyfulGrace

Fishy – if you asked me? Bad Religion! It’s typical of how religious institutions treat, or see the world. If you have the light, reflect the light. Don’t dim the light. And, if they refuse the light – fair dues; move it on. If you don’t, who will?

The light is Love*. Loving your neighbour as yourself. The greatest of all the teachings of Jesus – which religious institutions flaw ridiculously. I see the wisdom in Jesus taking the Good news to her first.  #HaveYouForgotten #BadReligion #WhoAmIToJudge.

MercyfulGrace Diaries with ‘Privacy’ – Respect That ..’ by Aremuorin

MercyfulGrace.com

Seriously, it’s none of your business, what two grown ups, decide to do in private. – Anthony Everest

Why do I feel un interested in gossip about what x did with y. I feel so bemused as to why this fuels the desire of many. May be I am just weird. I’m not particularly a fan of one night stands, and hooking up with random people. It’s not the way I was raised. However, if thats your style, you may well go ahead and do, just that ..’

Seriously, it’s none of your business, what two grown ups, decide to do in private. If they chose, to inform, they would. It’s their biz. People, are entitled to a professional life and a personal life. Gladly, I’d hangout, laugh and joke, and save me for the one. May be, I am just weird; as I inferred, earlier.  I’m just old fashioned and romantic.

Merry Christmas - MercyfulGrace.com

In the mean time on behalf of everyone here, we’d like to start wishing you a festive xmas. A little early, but a little love, harms no body. Every one here can not wait. If we don’t revisit this post, until christmas, we like to say, thank you for hanging in there with us, with all of our crazy posts. We can be spontaneous, but we mean well. Our trophies and laurels, are kept safe; and sound, somewhere, where no thieves, or robbers and moths can rot – in Heaven ..’

MercyfulGrace Diaries with ‘Bad Religion’ – And The Institution (Part 1) by Aremuorin

Bad Religion - MercyfulGrace.com

The love of Jesus set me free – let no demons tell lies on me ..’ Anthony Everest

“The catholic church for instance is not only violently homophobic, its violently hypocritical. While it preaches tolerance, it harbours many repressed nuns and priests, sexually active behind closed doors. They have historically been documented to be known for abusing vulnerable subjects in their care”.  #HaveYouForgotten #BadReligion #WhoAmIToJudge 

MercyfulGrace.com #MercyfulGrace

Cringe worthy, to note – when you meet, religious fanatics, denoting all others, as – imperfect, save them. For Christ, even, lamented, that, the tax collectors; and the harlots, will enter the kingdom, of God, first. Why!  His mercy. God Is Love and love always wins ..’  #MercyfulGrace

While I find the bible, like most religious texts, as a library source, for sacred knowledge and wisdom, I still, insist, I don’t need the Pope to find God, for the Bible (for example), is not the complete revelation of God. Without the revelation of God, those texts have been nothing but propaganda. A tool, to abuse vulnerable people, with, as much as its; elevated, some with hope. If you break one law of God, you’ve broken all of them, as far as I am concerned.

MercyfuGrace.com - Bad Religion (Part 1)

So, you need to focus on the ones you have broken. Fix those – first, before playing God. In other words – sweep around your own front door before you sweep around mine. Folks need to relax, get a life, and focus on how to live in harmony. How about the ten commandments for starters? Concentrate on those. Am I trying to start a new religion here? No. I’m just shedding some light on the hypocrisy surrounding my faith.

I have for once, never been a fan of religion or religious fanatics. Don’t get me wrong. There is good religion and bad religion – but the dampen, has been put on all forms of organised religions, for me. So much, there’s a sour taste, left on my bud. Hard, to know whom to trust. It’s like a bunch of hypocrisy and heresy, rolled into one. You wonder what religious texts, they read, and what kind of salvation they’ve received, or whom, they received it from – to warrant such harassment of others in the name of God. The last time I checked – God Is still Love*.

AnthonyEverest.com - KissMeBaby (Reloaded) Out 140215

The love of God Set Me Free – Let No Demons Tell Lies on Me. You’d be surprised, the more some folks, indoctrinate themselves, with their versions of grandeur delusions, ‘called religion’ – the more, intolerant, and hateful they become. Condemning and judging. Holding people accountable, to standards; they don’t even, ever, live up to. They even call themselves saints. Some will call themselves slaves. Laughable heresy! Seriously, stop!

I honestly don’t know why I’m fascinated with religion. Maybe because I grew up around it, and it shocked me, how it was; and still is, fuelled with hypocrisy from head to toe. Just like Jesus, when he said to the rich man, who thought, he was just and perfect – by obeying all the  laws of God, to go and sell all his worldly possessions, then give them, to the poor, which bittered his soul with thorough abject sorrow.

Jesus answered, “If you want to be perfect, go, sell your possessions and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me.” Mathew 19:21

So it is, when Jesus said; it would be easier for a camel to enter through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God – that was one litigation, I dare the greatest barrister, known to man, to challenge. That man was one class act – when he revealed himself – as the Son of God. The first and the last to everything.  #MercyfulGrace #SitMeDownAgain #InSilence

MercyfulGrace Diaries with ‘Anthony Everest’ – God’s Time Is The Best by Aremuorin

@Anthony Everest

What God has blessed can not be unblessed …’ – Anthony Everest

I see you in every frame..’ When people see me, I don’t think, they really see me. When people hear me, I don’t think, they really hear me. I’m stirred, and when its time for me to speak, love – I have nothing else to do, but to speak love – into  lives. Every time the devil (enemy) comes for me – God has a master plan.

Anthony Everest - MercyfulGrace.com

Why are you even bothered with how I live my existence? Why don’t you concentrate on your existence – and, own life. Some times, I can not but just laugh at some of the snakes; crawling under pews, telling me- I’m nobody. I laugh in my head, and my spirit says – ‪#‎Watiforit‬ ‪#‎IGotYou‬ ‪#‎MercyfulGrace‬

But when your friends become foes, stand your ground – don’t be alarmed. God is with you always, because God will take glory in it. He has caused a stir, to stir you on your destiny (your way). Sometimes, I can not but cry, why he loves me so and not given up, on me.

MercyfulGrace.com #MercyfulGrace

I don’t care if you are straight or gay, rich or poor, a lawyer or a laborer. I care in your ability to recognise; and love your neighbor as your self. If that’s too much to ask, then we’ll have a problem. ‘As much as the bible has given many; hope, its vilified, oppressed, suppressed and destroyed many lives ..’ – ‪#‎MercyfulGrace‬

Yes – the enemy has come to raise a standard – but Love has come to lift a much, more, higher standard – unprecedented – than the ones, before. The bible is not the complete revelation of God. Love is the standard. Love Is the revelation. God is the Love*. And there is nothing above Love* ..’

@Anthony Everest - MercyfulGrace.com

When Jesus ascended back into the heavens, he said – I will send you the Holy Spirit, the comforter – ‘Not The Bible’. God is new every morning and great is his faithfulness. Jesus never came-to abolish, the-laws, but to-fulfill them. He did, and it’s finished, and the rest is History. Now we have hope – because we have faith – unlike, before. And, because of faith – there is, hope – for all ..’

Sometimes, I can not but cry, why, he loves me so, and  as to why he has not given up, on me.

but then my spirit says ..’

#WaitForIt #IGot#You #MercyfulGrace.

MercyfulGrace Diaries with ‘Time’ – To Reflect This Light On me by Aremuorin ..’ ,

Anthony Everest - MercyfulGrace.com

I uncovered one ugly truth today while I was ironing my pants. It humbled me, and made me groan, and groan, and groan again. Then, I sent it to myself, as a text as a reminder ..’ – Anthony Everest

I keep telling my friends about Jesus – they think it’s a joke ..’ I went to church once, and they told me, something was wrong with me. ‘You look too much like a girl. There must be something wrong’.
Alright then, I’m thinking – go and tell God – who made me that way, that something is wrong with him. Fools! And predictably, that came from a black folk.
MercyfulGrace.com
Then, the harassment started. It was vile. Horiffic. I nearly lost my faith. I was like, if this is what God is like in Church – I don’t think this is what I signed up for.
They lied, and lied, and lied, and told more lies – things, I’d could never imagine, doing, in a million years – they said – I did all those, things.
Later in conversations, some of my musician, friends came to tell me – that they heard these things, said about me, but they knew it was not true, which is why, they said nothing, to me.
I’m so over, and done with religion. If you don’t like what you see – good bye. Aside. I give them one thing thou. One of the leaders, in that church,  called me, and invited me for lunch one Sunday, and apologised, whole heartedly, but not before – he did the, very same thing, they did – during that lunch.
I guess, he was subdued, when he saw the light, and realised, it was not true, that I was just different when he repeated their vicious vile. It’s amazing how negative people get influenced by mis information. The Holy Spirit took over – prompted me, and I said, nothing. Then he’s face lit up.
KissMeBabyEP - @AnthonyEverest
This guy reminded me of my childhood, when Deeper Life – ministers used to come, and harass me, as a child, at home, in Nigeria, to kneel down, forcefully, to pray for me. They even used force, aggression and violence, sometimes – to get their way. It was scary, almost mentally, scarring, for life – until I met the real Jesus.
Tyrese Interview By Aremuorin - Anthony Everest for MercyfulGrace.com -
They actually – told me to dump the, Jesus, they gave me – in my church, that their’s – is the real Jesus, and now, I am definitely saved – after their, prayers. This is why I know religious folks inside out. My step dad is a muslim, and my father, a reverend. There’s nothing about – these people, I don’t know, from A – Z, at their worst and best.
This episode, repeated, again – in a different, but similar scenario, in London, recently – on a Gospel Tour, I signed up to. This lady, (Aka Prayer Warrior), got upset and nasty with me, directing – some condescending, remarks at me – cuz, I refused, to let her pray, for me.
BlackRose - #MercyfulGrace.com
She did not leave me alone – until she finished. She prayed in tongues and all. It was a joke. I mean how can you – insult, attack, and pray for someone, at the same time? But guess what, nothings changed. I’m still unique, fabulous, and the same! I looked at her from-afar, afterwards – with a smirk on my face – as she basked in her foolish – wise.
Apart from, God – Jesus and the Holy Spirit, that I commune with, the rest of them, can take a hike. Personally, I’m interested in lovers of all kinds. Lovers of truths! I’m unique – doesn’t mean – it’s a crime. However, I choose, to orientate – myself – is my choice. Next!
Anthony Everest - theMercyfulGrace.com
I’ve said it, many times. I don’t need the Pope, to find God. He’s every where. He is love. If your religion has no Love, then, I don’t want, no part in it ..’ God, Is Love*.
The love of Jesus set me free. Let no demons, tell lies on me. To be honest, some of these people, just need to go out more. I tell you, some of them are the worst behind closed doors.
Time to reflect this light on me ..’
The end!
Why chase, stars too far, when you can – bask in the glory of the sun, underneath, the same sky ..’ Maybe, I should take my own advice – Anthony Everest 
Faith - MercyfulGrace.com
Notes – Please send this to someone you (may) know, who may-be going through this. It may help them, make better choices. Darkness can never be friends with light! A loveless religion – Is a Godless religion.
