Enjoy Saturated Fats, They’re Good for You!

The medical establishment and government health authorities say that consumption of saturated animal fats is bad for us and causes heart disease. According to the lipid hypothesis – the label used for the diet-cholesterol theory of heart disease – saturated fats raise serum cholesterol levels, and high blood cholesterol causes obstructive plaques to form in arteries, called atherosclerosis. This pathologic process causes coronary heart disease and the need for coronary artery bypass surgery, which is what I do.This article is taken from a talk I gave at the 29th Annual Meeting of the Doctors for Disaster Preparedness in Albuquerque last week, on the controversial subject of saturated fats [for that video CLICK HERE]. Some of the slides that I used for this talk are put in here.

Types and Structure of Fats

Animals and tropical plants contain saturated fats while plants outside the tropics have mostly unsaturated fats. Saturated animal fats are in milk, meat, eggs, butter, and cheese. And tropical coconut and palm oil contain a lot of saturated fat.

The food industry makes trans fats. They do this by shooting hydrogen atoms into polyunsaturated vegetable oils. This straightens out the fatty acid molecules and packs them closer together, giving vegetable oil so treated a solid texture like lard. Trans fats are used to make margarine, with yellow bleach added so it looks like butter. They are also used prolong the shelf life of bakery products, snack chips, imitation cheese, and other processed foods.

SPEAKING TRUTH TO POWER!! —“I don’t know where we left our brains…?!”

February 12, 2013 Leave a comment

My friends, this is really important!! Maybe you have already heard about Dr. Ben Carlson and his amazing and courageous speech in front of President Obama at the Prayer Breakfast last Friday. This event has made many headlines. But whether you have or have not heard about this, it still bears repeating many times.

As you may know, according to my political views—well you know my political views if you have perused this blog at all—I am very partisan; I definitely feel that those that are currently in power in our nation, and their ilk, and there ideas are currently the reasons for the bulk of the problems with our nation today. But, stay with me now, Dr. Carson, WITHOUT BEING particularly PARTISAN has really spoken TRUTH at this Prayer Breakfast please see these videos below.

I know this one above is almost a half an hour. If you are pressed for time at this moment start at 17:50, but be sure to come back later. Near the beginning Dr. Carson talks very succinctly about the problems with Political Correctness. So you will have missed that if you are in a hurry and take my advice. But I really feel that the essence of his message starts at 17:50. Also just like Eric Metaxas did last year Dr. Carson appropriately mixes humor throughout his speech. (see my post about Eric Metaxas by clicking here)

This man, Dr Ben Carson has an amazing story. Cuba Gooding Jr. played Dr. Ben Carson in a movie detailing his remarkable life story, click here for that movie. Below is a picture of him receiving the Presidential Medal of Freedom from President George W. Bush in 2008. This is the highest civilian award in the United States. 

Below is another must see video 🙂 which is an interview where he talks about why he felt led to give that speech at the Prayer Breakfast. My hope is that you will watch this video as well as the one above in its entirety. Also my hope is that you will feel compelled to share this post with others.

Let’s get our brains back on people…

The Divine Origins of the American Republic

February 11, 2013 Leave a comment

Written on January 31, 2013 by Dr. Marshall Foster

What gave the early immigrants to the American wilderness the courage, independent spirit, and audacious will to defy the hierarchical structures of the tyrannical nations of Europe and write their own documents of liberty?

How did these English yeomen accomplish what had never been done in 6,000 years of human history? Understanding the answers to these questions is crucial to the preservation of our liberty in the coming years. The reason that they were able to create self-governing, successful governments is that they were dedicated students of the “divine constitution” given to Moses. Their own written words and actions reveal that they were following a specific model. They knew that the God-ordained blueprint for true liberty had been given to the Ancient Hebrews on Mt. Sinai and codified in the Torah (the first five books of the Bible.)

Contrary to popular belief, the root of America’s governmental genius did not begin in the minds of the Founding Fathers. The Founding Fathers built on a continuum of divine truth that was tried and tested in towns and colonies for 150 years before the constitutional period.

Samuel Langdon was prominent in securing the adoption of the U.S. Constitution. Speaking before final ratification in 1788, he said, “The Israelites may be considered as a pattern to the world for all ages and from them we may learn what will exalt our character, and what will depress and bring us to ruin as a nation.”

John Adams, America’s second president and foremost legal scholar knew that the biblical precepts of the Hebrews were the nest in all of human history. Responding to an author who had praised the Greeks, Adams says, “As much as I love, esteem, and admire the Greeks, I believe the Hebrews have done more to enlighten and civilize the world. Moses did more than all their [Greek] legislators and philosophers.”

What was so uniquely different about the society and government laid down at Mt. Sinai? Legal Professor John Eidsmoe says, “In chapter 18 [of Exodus] Moses’ father-in-law, Jethro, the Midianite, proposed that Moses decentralize the judicial system by selecting various tiers of judges, laying the groundwork for the Hebrew Republic.”

The people gave voluntary consent in choosing God as their King and choosing Moses as their commander and chief executive. God directed Moses to establish a senate or council of elders as well as a popular assembly similar to America’s House of Representatives. This assembly was called the congregation, all the assembly, and other titles.

The Israelites voluntarily chose to be subject to God’s precepts and loving ways. They elected their judges, and followed this same pattern of decentralized representative government, concentrating all civil government at the local level. In Israel all people were equal before the law. There was no caste system, no special privileged class, and no tyrant claiming to be God as was the practice of the ancient Pharaohs of Egypt. The national government, as long as the Hebrews followed God’s ways, was limited and reserved for specific national priorities such as national defense. All other powers and decisions were reserved for the local tribes as they held themselves and their leaders accountable to the just and merciful laws of God.

Rev. E. C. Wines, a renowned authority on the Hebrew Scriptures, explains how America had emulated Moses’ divine national plan. He says,“The Hebrew Constitution, in its substance and its form, in its letter and its spirit, was eminently Republican [a republic]. The power of the people was great and controlling….Whoever attentively considers the…Hebrew and American constitutions cannot but be impressed with the resemblance between them. Their fundamental principles are identical; and many of the details of organization are the same or similar.”

This is the primary reason why America became the freest and most prosperous nation in history. Our forebears tapped into the eternal plan of God for men and nations. They understood that the laws of the universe are unchanging and that God knows best how His world works. Our loving God has not left us in the dark as to the only way of freedom. These colonial settlers also had a great advantage when it came to implementing God’s ways. They were, for the most part, devout believers in Jesus Christ, the God of heaven made flesh, for whom Moses was but a prophet.

This faith made our early settlers “more than conquerors through Christ” and able to govern themselves with moral power and clarity. They also had the “mind of Christ” and the Geneva Bible in their own language to give them the insights needed to create a worldwide example for all nations to experience God’s blessings and liberty.

Can we not see the miraculous confluence of the revealed truths of civil order and the opening up of a new continent for discovery and settlement some four centuries ago? We are the heirs of this American miracle that has led to the political liberty of half of the world! We are more accountable than ever to reapply and obey God’s principles as individuals and as a nation. There is no other way of restoring our national liberty. This one of a kind matrix of liberty is sustained through the faithful, loving lives of Christian believers and guided by the eternal principles laid down 3,500 years ago by God at Mt. Sinai.

Langdon’s final words to the colonial legislators ring down to us as a divine warning. He declared, “If you neglect or renounce that religion taught and commanded in the Holy Scriptures, think no more of freedom, peace, and happiness; the judgments of heaven will pursue you.” Can we see what is at stake here? We are fighting not just for a flag or document but for the Glory of the Lord of Heaven and Earth. Judgment or blessing will pursue us depending on the path we choose.

“If I Were the Devil” by Paul Harvey …Good Day!

Paul Harvey 1918-2099

After that great Paul Harvey Ad, “God Made a Farmer” I was thinking about how much I loved his radio spots. May God rest his soul. One particular radio spot comes to mind that was first broadcast in 1965. I was only 5 then, but I have heard it severl times later. And it is more relevant today, I think, then it was back then. Paul Harvey was being most prophetic when he broadcast this. Click here for that video, and scroll near the bottom of that page for the actual video

The Top 10 Reasons Why I Don’t Celebrate Christmas

November 30, 2012 Leave a comment

article by Scott Ashley

It’s that time of year again! You’ll soon be barraged by the sights, sounds and smells of Christmas. Shoppers will soon go into spending overdrive, and when the bills arrive, some will wonder if it’s really worth it. Here’s a perspective from one who kicked the Christmas habit.

The Top 10 Reasons Why I Don

What’s the real meaning behind Christmas?
Source: Photos.com

Christmas is a hugely popular holiday celebrated by some 2 billion people worldwide. It’s become such an ingrained part of modern culture that even people in nations with little or no Christian history or tradition are celebrating it in increasing numbers.

Christmas is so big that it plays a key role in the economies of many nations. In the U.S. retail industry, the day after the Thanksgiving holiday is commonly known as “Black Friday”—not because it’s bad, but because this marks the beginning of the Christmas shopping season and stores that have been “in the red”—operating at a loss all year—suddenly see their sales shoot up so fast that they are now operating in the black (at a profit) the rest of the year. “Black Friday” is the biggest shopping day of the year due to its Christmas sales.

Christmas is big— very big. Schools and colleges commonly take a week or longer break at this time, some businesses shut down to give their employees time off, many families plan trips and get-togethers, and some people darken the door of a church for perhaps the first time all year.

I Am a Christian.

October 18, 2012 Leave a comment

Poem

 

When I say, “I am a Christian”
I’m not shouting, “I’ve been saved!”
I’m whispering, “I get lost!
That’s why I chose this way”

When I say, “I am a Christian”
I don’t speak with human pride
I’m confessing that I stumble –
needing God to be my guide

When I say, “I am a Christian”
I’m not trying to be strong
I’m professing that I’m weak
and pray for strength to carry on

When I say, “I am a Christian”
I’m not bragging of success
I’m admitting that I’ve failed
and cannot ever pay the debt

When I say, “I am a Christian”
I don’t think I know it all
I submit to my confusion
asking humbly to be taught

When I say, “I am a Christian”
I’m not claiming to be perfect
My flaws are far too visible
but God believes I’m worth it

When I say, “I am a Christian”
I still feel the sting of pain
I have my share of heartache
which is why I seek His name

When I say, “I am a Christian”
I do not wish to judge
I have no authority
I only know I’m loved
