If many of us could escape this slavedom called "society", many of us would.
One thing the Holy Bible teaches us is to live in the Holy Spirit of God and we will not fulfill the lusts of the flesh. In truth, when we are walking with our minds fully focused on God, we forget about the flesh. The earth is temporary and this is a good example. We can easily forget about it when our minds our focused on God. The Holy Spirit is willing, the flesh is weak. We must endure this until it is time to leave. The suffering we endure on this temporary earth, cannot be compared with all that God has planned for us. Fasting is a great form of self denial. Walking in The Holy Spirit is enemy against the world and pleasing to God. Give all that you have and follow Christ, in The Holy Spirit. Christ as our example Matthew 17:27
. Christ is very much seperated from mankinds requirements.
