There are two schools of thought when it comes to how all things came about. The one put forth by satan, his lackeys, his minions and his ilk, is known as the theory of evolution. And of course the correct view, the view articulated to us by the Creator of all things, Christ Jesus: In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. ... For in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day ...
Also, there are two schools of thought on how one attains salvation and eternity with God instead of satan. There is the lie put forth by satan that there are any number of ways to heaven and that if you live a good life you will go to heaven. Then there is the truth as told by God the Son, the Lord God of Creation, Jesus, the Christ: I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by Me.
Just as there are two schools of thought about creation and salvation, so are there also two schools of thought about your health. The servants of satan brought you AIDS, the chemicals for the death camps of Hitler, and a toxic substance too deadly to feed animals, so it is put in your drinking water, a poison called fluoride. These same satan worshipers tell you to use prescription and over the counter drugs, to use vaccines and Codex approved vitamin supplements. God on the other hand, your Creator, tells you to use herbs, sunshine and organic food. And that my dear brothers and sisters is what we are going to look at today.
Jesus says: Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat. And to every beast of the earth, and to every fowl of the air, and to every thing that creepeth upon the earth, wherein there is life, I have given every green herb for meat:
But does the Lord have anything to say about the use of drugs? Yes, He most certainly does, and He says it quite emphatically, stating that the use of drugs is one of the reasons that keeps a person out of heaven.
Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God. (Galatians 5:19-21 ACP/KJV)
I know you're looking at the verses above and saying, "Where is drug use in that list of violations punishable by eternity in the lake of fire?" See the word "witchcraft"? Let's see what that word was in the original Greek: pharmakeia, pronounced far-mak-i'-ah, medication ("pharmacy"), i.e. (by extension) magic (literally or figuratively):--sorcery, witchcraft, from pharmakon (a drug, i.e. spell-giving potion); a druggist ("pharmacist") or poisoner, i.e. (by extension) a magician:--sorcerer. Let it sink in guys, let it sink in.
Read it till you understand it, because it is important. For while I am adamantly opposed to drugs of all kinds, even those used by the medical profession, it is the mind altering drugs that cause a person to loose the wonderful mind that God has given him or her and cause a person to not be saved, due to the drugs effect of their not being able to make an informed and serious commitment to the Lord. I'm not saying that if you are taking Nexium or one of the other drugs advertised everywhere from the tv to billboards, will cause you to loose your salvation, that isn't what I'm saying at all. It is the mind altering drugs that cause people to not be able to focus on the Lord and His plan of salvation.
Try to evangelize a kid on Ritalin or one of the other mind altering drugs. Try telling a man or woman, who is on one of the drugs prescribed by the infamous and satan serving psychiatrist, about the Lord and the plan of salvation. These men and women who ply the devil's game of psychiatry are literally damning millions of souls by keeping their minds so drugged up and incapable of reasoning, that the plan of salvation can't get through the muck and mire. Why is it that you can understand that games like dungeons and dragons, things like Ouija boards are bad, yet you allow your kids to be stuck with chemicals called vaccines, injected with all kinds of horrible things made from aborted babies, and shove pills down their throats that your dog won't eat. And then you have the unmitigated arrogance to call those of us who use alternative medicines, that are based upon the Biblical principals of herbs, Quacks?
Now, while other non mind altering drugs are not going to endanger your salvation, you have to wonder why anyone would want to put them inside their own bodies.
You say you serve Christ, but you follow the medical practices of satan instead of Jesus? Instead of turning to the Lord, as instructed in James: Is any sick among you? let him call for the elders of the church; and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord: And the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up; and if he have committed sins, they shall be forgiven him. (James 5:14&15 ACP/KJV)
Let's look at some words as they originally appeared in the Greek: Is any sick (astheneo means:to be feeble in any sense:--be diseased, impotent folk, sick, weak.) among you? let him call for the elders (presbuteros means: comparative of presbus (elderly); older; as noun, a senior; specially, an Israelite Sanhedrist also figuratively, member of the celestial council, or Christian "presbyter":-- elder(-est), old) of the church (ekklesia means: a popular meeting, especially a religious congregation (Jewish synagogue, or Christian community of members on earth or saints in heaven or both):--assembly, church) and let them pray (proseuchomai means: to pray to God, i.e. supplicate, worship:--pray earnestly for, make prayer for.) over him, anointing him with oil (elaion means: olive oil:--oil) in the name of the Lord (Kurios means:from kuros (supremacy); supreme in authority, i.e. (as noun) controller; by implication, Master (as a respectful title):-- God, Lord, master, Sir.).
So what is James telling us? Well, he is not telling you to go down and let some guy dressed in white with a strange looking listening device hanging around his neck stick you with a needle and pump a bunch of chemicals into you. Nor is he telling you to go to some satan serving clown with a pointy beard who wants to alter that wonderful mind God gave you with drugs. No he is telling you to call the elders of your church, and ask them to pray over you while they anoint you with raw cold pressed olive oil or the oil made from the berry of the olive tree.
Why do you call yourself a Christian when you follow the teachings of the prince of this earth instead of the teachings of Christ? Look, forget the past, look to the future. Don't be stubborn and cling to the ways of the world, reevaluate your life and start doing the things God tells you to do. So you are taking pills, so were most of us. Does that mean you can't stop and that you must continue taking these chemical compounds that your dog won't even eat?
I have the opportunity to bring a Messianic Jewish Christian onboard ACP and CNIM who is a dentist with his master's degree from Harvard in public health. He may very well be answering weekly questions in Christian-news-in-maine.com. He is Dr. Leonard Horowitz. Dr. Horowitz is one of the foremost authorities on alternative medicines in the country and I pray you will read what he has to say and stop pumping manmade chemicals into your body, the Temple of the Holy Sprit.
My wife and I don't get flu shots. We now use a mixture of five ingredients that we heard about from Dr. Horowitz. It smells horrible, tastes even worse, but, thank God neither of us has come down with anything more than the sniffles. We have also taken Dr. Horowitz advice and are in the process of detoxifying and building up our PH.
Guys, I know that the Apostle Paul has told us that it is better to be with the Lord than here on earth, and I wholeheartedly concur, but what about your responsibilities here? How about being healthy while you're here? And if you don't want to do it for yourself, well that's fine, but how about feeding your kids organic and taking them off all prescription and non prescription drugs, like the leftists say, "Do it for the kids."
Lord help us to understand that You not only created us, You love us too. Help us to understand that You love us too much to lead us astray on how we should maintain our health. Help us to understand that satan hates us and will do anything to separate us from You. That while You want to see us healthy and strong satan wants us sick and weak. Thank You Jesus, amen.

They are dong exactly what Jesus instructs all Born Again Washed in the Blood of the Lamb Christians to do, they are complying with:
Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.
All power is given unto Me in heaven and in earth. Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world.

All Scripture quoted, in both sermons and daily thoughts, except when done by a guest, is from the ACP/authorized 1611 King James Version. The words in red are those quotes of God the Son, the Lord Jesus and the words in purple are those qoutes spoken directly by God the Father and the words in this sickly greenish color are of satan. But all of the Bible is spoken by God and should be viewed as God's handbook for us to run our lives by 2 Timothy 3:16.
