The Scripture tells Christians to “honor God with your body,” and now physicians are finding the Bible is not only a guide to a healthy spiritual life but a healthy physical life as well.
Nutritional expert and weight loss specialist Dr. Don Colbert and Dr. Reginald Cherry of the television program “The Doctor and the World” have released a series of guides identifying the God-given health secrets provided within the Bible to lead a happy and healthy life.
The books provide a holistic approach for diet, exercise, nutrition and spirituality. Readers are given both a practical plan to solving their health problems and guidance for where to look in Scripture for prayers and readings related to their medical issues.
foodThe new claims are part of a larger trend of looking back to ancient wisdom for contemporary health problems. Recently, scientists from the University of Southern California created headlines around the world for reportedly developing a regimen of fasting and diet changes that reduced risk factors for a host of diseases and health problems. They even claimed it slowed aging.
Celebrities such as singer Beyoncé and actor Benedict Cumberbatch have also touted the benefits of the ancient practice of fasting. And fad diets such as the “Paleo” diet or even more outlandish programs telling people to eat insects continue to gain in popularity as Americans search desperately for diets perceived as more “natural” or “organic.”
Yet the truth so many people are seeking can be found in the Good Book that many people already have in their own homes.
Dr. Colbert writes: “As a Christian medical doctor, I have studied and prayed about the causes of disease, and increasingly I have discovered that many diseases have very strong spiritual roots. I believe it is God’s desire to restore us to complete health of the entire person: body, mind, and spirit.”
Many Americans have taken Colbert at his word, as sales of the “Bible Cure” series have exceeded more than 2.5 million copies. The bestselling books include:
“The Bible Cure for High Blood Pressure”
“The Bible Cure for Weight Loss and Muscle Gain”
“Bible Health Secrets”
“The Bible Cure”

The entire series boasts four- and five-star reviews at Amazon.com. For example, readers of Colbert’s book on blood pressure rave:
Don Colbert has established himself as the source for healthy living ideas and natural ways to cure, prevent and treat numerous diseases. I first read his book on Toxic Emotions, followed by several others. I then added his cookbook to my collection of cookbooks. And most recently I received this book as a review copy. Although I do not suffer from high blood pressure, I found his ideas on prevention and treatment of such interest. It is a sad state of affairs that so many in the church are “brainwashed” (for lack of a better descriptive phrase) into believing conventional medical practices are the only way to treat diseases. Colbert points out in every book that he authors that we live in a society filled with toxins – emotional toxins, environmental toxins, toxins in food, water and medications. These things were never God’s intent for the human body which was intricately designed to heal itself when given the appropriate lifestyles and nutritional intake.
This book is tiny – easy to read – short, sweet and to the point. He does not fill it with tons of philosophy or spend time defending his point of view. Rather, he simply takes fact and lays them out for all to examine and choose for themselves. This is what I have always enjoyed about Colbert’s writing. This is not about a fast fix, a simple three-step program or any other such thing. It is about learning to take care of God’s design (our bodies) by His blueprint (natural ways) to enable His design to function at its highest quality. An excellent book.
Another person says:
God wants to stop high blood pressure from damaging your health, Colbert writes. If you have high blood pressure, Colbert has good news for you. “You don’t have to face it alone. God promises to walk with you until you defeat it.”
He helps you understand what high blood pressure is and what causes it. He outlines a healthy diet aiming at lowering blood pressure and stopping inflammation. He explains the importance of regular exercise, describing several styles and routines. He suggests supplements and discusses medications. He reminds you of the consequences of stress and gives suggestions to combat it.
He adds Scripture to strengthen and encourage you and ends each chapter with a prayer and suggested action to take.
We are so programmed to run to medications, it is really refreshing to read a book describing natural ways to tackle this common ailment. It is such an encouragement to know that living life the way God designed will produce a much healthier body. A few things surprised me, like the benefits of celery and the chiropractic adjustment of a particular vertebra in lowering blood pressure.
This book is not a magic cure for high blood pressure. A change in diet, exercise, and lifestyle are probably required. But if you are willing to work at restoring your health, this book is a great place to start.
Believers looking for a systematic guide to the traditional Christian practice of fasting also have new resources available. Susan Gregory, renowned for her popular website “The Daniel Fast,” has written a book with the same title that provides believers with a comprehensive and holistic 21-day guide to carrying out a fast that will renew their body and their faith.
And author Jordan Rubin, who combated Crohn’s Disease until he had been reduced to only 111 pounds, embarked on his own faith-based journey from near death to full recovery by following a Bible-based diet. He chronicles his story in “The Maker’s Diet,” which combines his personal experience with the hard scientific knowledge he accumulated in his formal training as a nutritionist.
America’s media culture may continue to obsess over the search for good health, but an ever-increasing number of Christians are learning Scripture has been telling them for centuries what today’s medical professionals are only now discovering.

Don’t Let Fear Rob You Of Your Inheritance
Moses sent 12 spies into the promised land that God wanted the Israelites to inherit. Two of them, Joshua and Caleb, came back with a good report of the land, saying, “The land we passed through to spy out is an exceedingly good land…‘a land which flows with milk and honey.’ Only do not rebel against the Lord, nor fear the people of the land, for they are our bread; their protection has departed from them, and the Lord is with us. Do not fear them” (Numbers 14:7–9).
However, the other 10 spies gave a bad report, saying, “We are not able to go up against the people, for they are stronger than we...There we saw the giants...and we were like grasshoppers in our own sight, and so we were in their sight” (Numbers 13:31–33).
All 12 of them saw the same land, the same giants, but what a stark contrast in their reports! Joshua and Caleb had a different spirit—a spirit of faith (Numbers 14:24). They focused on the promises and goodness of God. But the rest cowered in fear and saw only the giants. And the fear paralyzed them!
My friend, today, no matter how dire your circumstances may appear, choose to focus on God’s goodness. Choose to meditate on how Christ has paid the price for you to enjoy God’s unmerited favor, peace, protection and provision. That’s how fear will not paralyze you. That’s how you experience God’s faithfulness and walk in His blessings!
This is made possible by a MEDICAID program! I think we just found another cut for the budget.
Earlier this month, LifeNews.com reported on a high school in Seattle, Washington that is now implanting intrauterine devices (IUD), as well as other forms of birth control and doing so without parental knowledge or permission.
The IUD is known as a long acting reversible contraception, and may even act as an abortifacient. So, a young teen in Seattle can’t get a coke at her high school, but she can have a device implanted into her uterus, which can unknowingly kill her unborn child immediately after conception. Or, if she uses another method, she can increase her chances of health risks for herself, especially if using a new method.
The high school, Chief Sealth International, a public school, began offering the devices in 2010, made possible by a Medicaid program known as Take Charge and a non-profit, Neighborcare. Students can receive the device or other method free of cost and without their parent’s insurance. And while it’s lauded that the contraception is confidential, how can it be beneficial for a parent-child relationship when the parents don’t even know the devices or medication their daughter is using?
As it turns out, Chief Sealth isn’t the only school in Seattle doing this. As CNS News reports, more schools are fitting young girls — as young as 6th grade — with the devices and doing so without their parents knowing.
Middle and high school students can’t get a Coca-Cola or a candy bar at 13 Seattle public schools, but they can get a taxpayer-funded intrauterine device (IUD) implanted without their parents’ consent.

School-based health clinics in at least 13 Seattle-area public high schools and middle schools offer long-acting reversible contraceptives (LARCs), including IUDs and hormonal implants, to students in sixth-grade and above at no cost, according to Washington State officials.
LARCs are associated with serious side effects, such as uterine perforation and infection. IUDs, specifically, can also act as abortifacients by preventing the implantation of a fertilized egg.
The state and federally funded contraceptive services are made possible by Take Charge, a Washington State Medicaid program which provides free birth control to adults who are uninsured, lack contraceptive coverage, have an income at or below 260 percent of the Federal Poverty Level — or, in this case, to teens who don’t want their parents to know they’re on birth control.
In an email exchange with the Washington State Health Care Authority and CNSNews.com, a Take Charge spokesperson acknowledged that underage students are eligible for a “full array of covered family planning services” at school-based clinics if their parents meet the program’s requirements.
Take Charge added that “a student who does not want their parents to know they are seeking reproductive health services is allowed to apply for Take Charge using their own income, and if they are insured under their parents’ plan, the insurance would not be billed.”
When asked if a sixth grader could get an IUD implanted without parental consent, Take Charge told CNSNews.com: “We encourage all Take Charge providers to offer long-acting reversible contraceptives (LARCs) in their clinics. A young person does not need parental consent to obtain a LARC or any other contraceptive method…If the young person is not choosing abstinence, she would be able to select a LARC and have it inserted without parental consent.”
Parents, if you have children in these schools, you need to investigate and complain immediately. And all parents ought to take a look at the health policies of their young daughters’ schools to find out if a similar program is in place where you live.
How do you fight against people who vote for 'free stuff'?
There is a certain belief that society consists of a group of people that have the same concepts and are united by them to the point of unofficial delusion. Example; Take the myth of George Washington and the Cherry Tree. While it is a good morality instruction for the young, it was also a shared commonality in our society. No adult actually believed it, but it was a comfortable fiction that hurt no one. The takeover Elites have changed that and almost all of our traditions,presenting them as Naivete that needs to be ridiculed and removed by a civilized people, and supplanting their Lies and Spin in place of traditional morality fictions. This started our subsequent downfall to the conditions we are experiencing today..
Truthfully, a Community ranging from individual small groups, up to a fully populated Nation, is usually a consensus of shared opinions, mutual understanding of moral principles, and the mutually agreed on actions within it, which are acceptable. and those actions which are not acceptable. In short; 'The difference between what is morally Right and Wrong'. Basically it is a dynamic process that can go wrong unless there are some codified rules and regulations the populace agree to voluntarily accept and conform to. The Government leaders must also conform to the codified structure or everything collapses. The stress is and MUST REMAIN AS; 'Voluntarily' for the People, and as 'Mandatory' for the Elected Officials..
The thing that most often happens is when the concept of what is right is twisted by a sub group within the societal grouping to make the perception of; Right 'Wrong', and Wrong 'Right' to increase their chances of personal gain and power. It is currently alarmingly clear that is what is happening across America, and across the World today. The symptoms are clear and defined. They include a welfare class that can be used and directed by utilizing the disparities between their un-earned lifestyles, and the productive peoples earned lifestyles. The twist comes in with the welfare group being told that the situation is unfair and the productive group is morally obligated to ease their circumstances by taking care of them. Heaven forbid the welfare group should get the necessary training and education to strike out on their own and become a member of the productive class.
The Elitists for lack of a more descriptive name also work against the productive class by creating an 'Immoral Cadre' of political leaders and biased cabals that attempt to control all the business and productivity, so they may reap most of the rewards for themselves. How many times have you heard or seen someone that has made millions from using the system and then condemning it as immoral and biased against the "Poor"? These same people advocate publicly and emotionally the Productive Class, and the Rich Class ( that is not yet a part of their group ), should be held in contempt and stripped of their earned wealth to compensate for some contrived inequality the poor have not even been given a chance to work for by the self same Elitist controlled group, or an individual sanctioned and trained in agitator methods promoting the agendas of the group who is making those noises.
The Elites have perfected the art of misdirection and spun rhetoric so thoroughly that the poor and welfare class of people who have been suppressed by those Elites, actually believe the lies and spin are gospel truths, hook line and sinker. This is one of the main reasons why our society has become so warped. If it continues on like this it will be destroyed through the methods the hidden ruling group has set their political conscripts to accomplish in coordination with each other, according to the overall plan the Elites are using for their takeover.
The Elites don't believe in human rights, unless it's their personal assumed rights that are being cited. For us 'lesser beings' in their world view lexicon, they don't believe there's any thing like a 'God Given Human Right'. Know this, A Right is self evident and cannot be removed. It is also self evident that rights have responsibilities connected to them. The Elites have treated the Welfare poor with a twisted concept of rights that they have rights to almost anything that is made or owned by the producer class but they don't have any responsibilities attached to those rights. This fallacy stems from the Progressive lies and spin that say rights only come from the beneficent Government and then, only if the recipients are willing to march in lockstep with the wishes of the Overlord class that controls them.
The question that confronts us right now is; What Are We Going To Do To reverse The Situation? We know what has led up to this point,and we know where it will continue on to if not stopped. So, how do we stop it? Better yet, How Do We Get The Diverse Population To Unite Against The Opposition, and Remain Legal and Non-Violent While doing so? We can not afford to ignite violent acts, or use illegal means to our ends, or we become transgressors. Doing so would only bring down the unrelenting wrath of the hidden Overlords through their political toadies and their controlled enforcement agents .
Therefore, the first thing we have to do is to educate the vast numbers of people who are of a conservative bent with the truth about what has been done to change America over the last hundred years. Then encourage them to deprogram the propagandized and highly biased education their children are getting in public schools. The next thing is to start a counter campaign against the Political Correctness attack on our sensibilities that explains why and how it's being used against American Values and morals.. We can attack that by using logical arguments that are self evident to oppose most of their stylized pernicious rhetoric. Don't forget, the Political Correctness Rhetoric uses a twisted form of our own morality and compassion, and it skews our innate desire to do the right and honorable moral things, by subverting it to the Progressive flavor of the month political agenda. Keep arguments short and to the point. Do not allow them to control the dialogue. Use their techniques against them, those techniques actually work.
The best way to make the necessary inroads to their power and control structure is to attack it intellectually on the Political Correctness front by exposing it's innate twisting and manipulation of our basic beliefs and values with the truth. Fight for the Constitutionally protected First Amendment Rights on all forms of speech, not only on the socially acceptable ones the progressive socialists spout as the only correct ones. i.e. Political Opinionated speech that opposes the ones in power's agendas, and the harsh or nasty speech that insults are the types of speech that needs the protection.
Secondly we need to attack the stolen powers that were never intended to be powers of the central government and return them to the states and to the people. Doing that would entail overturning by repeal the 14th,16th and 17th Amendments by way of a States petitioned for Article V Amendment Convention. We could also address the excesses the Government Leaders have done to weaken America through Treaty and ignoring the Constitutionally enumerated powers. for example, we could propose a Balanced Budget Amendment with penalties for the politicians up to and including the President, Supreme Court,and members of Congress. We could also propose an amendment that sets a simple guideline to stop Federal Justices including the supreme Court from in effect legislating from the bench.
For those who are afraid of the Constitution being gutted or the convention being hi-jacked by special interest groups because of the inane rhetoric of the mouthpieces for the ones who would lose power remember that citing what happened when the Constitution was created out of a convention to fix the Articles of the Confederation of the Perpetual union of the United States remember they refuse to state that original confederation document had no means within it to make any changes to the body of it. The Constitution however has the means to change it without changing the body of itself, and the Founders trusted the people more than they trusted the continued veracity of the Federal Government.
The best and only Constitutional way to accomplish what needs be accomplished, is to build up and focus the movement around the concept of restoring the Republic through the auspices of an Article V Convention Of States. It's not too late. Many will out of fear or self interest, will counsel against it. I can't accept their baseless fears, nor can I countenance the Self Serving Interests of those who would lose power from it. Enforcing the Article V provision by the States will give us the necessary basis in Constitutional Law. Once the corrections to the 100 years of Progressive amendments are incorporated through enactment or repeal of certain ones, the Supreme Court will have to agree with us when we rein in the out of control, overblown and overreaching federal government's stolen power, and return it to the States and to the People.
A parting thought;
Article V of the Constitution.
An Amendment proposal agreed on by the delegates at an article V convention would make damn sure the States should/would/could unite to repeal the 14th,16th,17th amendments along with other desirable changes. Such accomplished, we would return to the balance of separate and equal branches of our government, and we could function as intended once again. The State's powers and the 10th amendment would be restored. Executive actions would be mute. No man or woman could be a king or a queen. And from that foundation where we once started to build a nation, we can begin to restore the Republic our Founders gave to us.
From an excellent show on Daystar last night, celebrating the truth of America.
An un-named Pastor said:
The American Dream that has defined our country for so long, has now been misinterpreted into singular dreams of bigger cars, homes, status, etc.
The original American Dream was to fulfill the Great Commandment, which is to go forth and love one another, love our neighbor as ourselves. Our founders were not trying to frame this to force the love of God, but they understood that if they had that pursuit, we would be a nation characterized by loving others as we love ourselves. Out of that foundation, a society is enriched and strengthened.
We have turned that principle around today and made it an issue of respect, rather than the issue of love.
We have mis-defined respect.
We say we are supposed to have respect for all people when they have aberrant behaviour? Even when they do things that are absolutely awful crimes against humanity?
The concept of respect does not work.
The concept of love does work.
Because even the Biblical concept of love, when it is applied towards those who have committed heinous crimes against humanity—it is love that allows us to pursue justice and the right implementation of justice. This is God's mandate to human society and government, rather than revenge.
When we mis-define that core American dream that was formed in the Constitution, which has a Biblical foundation, then we will be a society that is defined by the lowest common denominator, rather than the highest common denominator.
From another Pastor:
We need our freedom. We need to continue to fight for our freedom, and to continue to believe that our freedom is not only of our country but of our God. In other words, without God as our foundation, we have no freedom.
From another Pastor:
What brought them from the shores of England and elsewhere is Faith.
Faith inspired them to make a nation that would be a light to the world. Not that America is God's only nation, that is not true. But is was an experiment in what a truly Christian society might look like.
Your support keeps freedom alive!
