Horrifying study finally puts an end to the PRO-VACCINE crowd!

Vaccines, vaccinations, drugs, medications, Bible, science, disease, children

In December of 2016 we published a blog that questioned the safety of vaccinations. A shocking new study has come out that confirms our earlier conclusion!

The conclusion, “Vaccinations are not safe”

According to the Children’s medical safety research institute. “Thirty-two million American children – a full 43% of them – suffer from at least one of 20 chronic illnesses not including obesity.'” Illnesses caused by vaccinations.

Most children are  exposed to, “50 doses of 14 vaccines by age six, 69 doses of 16 pharmaceutical vaccines containing powerfully immune-altering ingredients by age 18. The article also exposes the use of aluminum, mercury and tissue from aborted fetuses found in vaccinations.

Proponents for vaccinations still quote debunked study.

Proponents for vaccinations still quote a 2004 Pediatrics study claiming to refute a link between autism and vaccines even though one of its authors, their own top scientist William Thompson, has admitted that he and his colleagues colluded to obscure and then shred data (he kept copies) which showed a link between autism and the MMR vaccine. “Oh my God, I can’t believe we did what we did,” Thompson confessed in one taped telephone chat to Brian Hooker, a bioengineer professor at Simpson University and the father of an autistic child.

Permanent damage cause by mass vaccinations!

Every “magic pill” that promises help, but bypass God’s advice has a dark side. My wife Shary and I grew up in homes where the doctor’s word was gospel and indisputable. There was a pill or surgery for every ailment. We grew up in the fifties and sixties, when science was king, and vaccines were supposed to eradicate all disease. We grew up in a culture where there were mass immunizations.

Vaccine lines of the 60s

We were all lined up at schools like lemmings, to receive our sugar cube vaccinations. Later they found that some children received mild crippling from those vaccinations, My wife Shary was one of those children.  Shary had to wear leg braces after being vaccinated.  To this day, the effects from that vaccine means that shary has to buy two different sizes of shoes.; one size for her left foot and another for her right foot.  Because of the vaccine, one foot is a size bigger than the other. Another side effect of those vaccinations is that Shary has one leg that is longer than the other, which illustrates that there are no magic pills without harmful side effects. Today, polio vaccinations are the #1 cause of polio, is that crazy or what.

So what does God have to say about vaccines, drugs, and medications???

Sugar cube vaccine we lined up and took at our local school.

Our English word Pharmacy, is derived from the Greek word “Pharmakeus.”

According to Strong’s Greek Dictionary…

Pharmakeus can be translated…druggist, pharmacist, sorcerer or poisoner.

Pharmakeia can be translated…medication, magic, sorcery or witchcraft.

When the Bible uses the word Pharmakeia, it is referring to medications drugs or vaccinations.

When the Bible uses the word Pharmakeus, it is referring to a person who makes, distributes or uses drugs and vaccinations.

The following passages are Bible verses that contain the Greek words Pharmakeus and Pharmakeia. We have left the Greek word, untranslated, in each passage so you can get an idea how God views the use of vaccines and drugs and the giving and making of vaccines and drugs.

Galatians 5:19-21                                                                                                                              The acts of the flesh are obvious: sexual immorality, impurity debauchery; 20 idolatry and (Pharmakeia); hatred, discord, jealousy, fits of rage, selfish ambition, dissensions, factions 21 and envy; drunkenness, orgies, and the like. I warn you, as I did before, that those who live like this will not inherit the kingdom of God.

Revelation 9:20-21                                                                                                                         “The rest of mankind that were not killed by these plagues still did not repent of the work of their hands; they did not stop worshiping demons, and idols of gold, silver bronze stone and wood—idols that cannot see or hear or walk. Nor did they repent of their murders, their(Pharmakeia) their sexual immorality or their thefts.

Revelation 18:23                                                                                                                                        “…By your (Pharmakeia) all the nations were led astray.”

Revelation 21:8                                                                                                                                          But the cowardly, the unbelieving, the vile the murderers, the sexually immoral, those who practice (Pharmakeus,) the idolaters and all liars—their place will be in the fiery lake of burning sulfur. This is the second death.”

Revelations 22:15                                                                                                                      Blessed are those who wash their robes, that they may have the right to the tree of life and may go through the gates into the city. Outside are the dogs, those who practice (Pharmakeus), the sexually immoral, the murderers, the idolaters and everyone who loves and practices falsehood.”

God places vaccinations and drugs in the same category with murderers.

God puts the use of drugs and vaccinations, (Pharmakeus) in the same category, as drunkenness, sexually immorality and vile murderers; maybe because peoples lives are being ruined and people are dying. He says that those who practice, (continually commit) these sins will have their place in the fiery lake of burning sulfur. These passages from the Bible make no distinction between illegal drugs and legal drugs. Most importantly, your body does not know the difference either.

Schauermann family with many of the grand-kids and spouses.

Our kids are much healthier than Shary and I were as children, as can be seen, genetic predisposition to disease is extremely overrated. Most of them never saw a doctor while growing up, we never paid for health insurance because we never needed it.

Most of our children never got any vaccinations, though some were forced to by the military. One of our sons after receiving military vaccinations got really sick, which underscores the statement, “every “magic pill” that promises help but bypass God’s advice, has a dark side’.

Biblical principles to live by.

  • Doctors Are Not Gods.
  • Science Is Not King. Man’s Wisdom Is Foolishness to God.
  • Pharmacia (Drugs, vaccinations) Are Not Your Savior,
  • God has placed instructions in his word to help us. If we follow His instructions, God says he will keep us free from every disease and give us a full lifespan.

At the end of the day, THE ONLY WAY TO EXCEPTIONAL EMOTIONAL, SPIRITUAL AND PHYSICAL HEALTH, IS TO SPEND TIME EACH DAY LISTENING TO THE GREAT PHYSICIAN, JESUS CHRIST AND DOING WHAT HE SAYS!

The law and the prophets; friends or foe? Part 1

bible, God's law, old testament, curse, bewitched, nutrition, dietary laws

Most New Testament teachers say that it is definitely not biblical to follow God’s law concerning food!

bible, God's law, old testament, curse, bewitched, nutrition, dietary laws

In this weeks blog we will explain why they say that about God’s law, and give our explanation from our experience, from science and from God’s word.

The apostle Paul makes this statement about God’s law…

You who are trying to be justified by the law have been alienated from Christ; you have fallen away from grace.” Galatians 5:4 

 O foolish Galatians! Who has bewitched you?  It was before your eyes that Jesus Christ was publicly portrayed as crucified. Let me ask you only this: Did you receive the Spirit by works of the law or by hearing with faith? Galatians 3:1-2 

Because of these passages, many bible scholars, believe that following old testament rules and regulations displeases God. Some have even told us that it puts us under a curse. Consequently, most preachers not only ignore the valuable information about healthy living found in God’s law, but teach people that it is something they must not do.

Deuteronomy 7:11-5 states that if we are careful to follow God’s law, he will keep us free from every disease. In Exodus 23:20-26 God says that if we are careful to do all that he says, he will take away sickness from us and give us a full lifespan. 1 Timothy 3:16 says that all scripture is God breathed and useful. This certainly includes God’s law as found in the Old Testament, since that was all the scripture they had when this was written.

So what is the truth, should we be careful to follow Gods law or not? Will it bring health or a curse?

We believe the proof is in the pudding, the answer is found in the results. Does following God’s commands bring a curse or blessing on those who do it? We see people every day who follow God’s law, are healthier than people who ignore them. There is a lot of science to back up what God has said about food choice. We believe that the reason so many very good, honest, God loving pastors die young, is because they ignore these conditions and promises from God’s word. Here are some notable examples; we could produce thousands.

  • Evangelist John G Lake,

Lake preached to hundreds of thousands of people in Africa and America. He died at the young age of 65. Lake was not overweight, he was fit as a man can be. He had a very powerful healing ministry and started the now famous healing rooms that are all over the world. His wife died about twenty years before he did of malnutrition. Lake died of a stroke ten years short of the average American lifespan of 75.

  • Aimee Semple McPhearson

Mcphearson started the Four Square denomination. She was one of our nations greatest evangelists and was a successful faith healer. Mcphearson looked as healthy as could be, she was not overweight, she led an active lifestyle, but sadly she died at the age of 54. She had been very sick, the day she died she had called her doctor numerous times to see if he could help her, he was in surgery and never got her call . God said we are to live to 120 and our strength should equal our days. If Aimee had lived an average american lifespan, she would have had 21 more years of ministry.

William Seymour is pictured in the front row second from the right. His ministry crossed all financial, age and racial boundaries and literally changed the world.
  • William Joseph Seymour

Seymour was an American minister, and an initiator of the Azusa Street Revival. Seymour was one of the most influential individuals in the revival that grew into the Pentecostal movement. That movement has now spread across the world. The largest denomination in the world is Pentecostalism. The largest most influential churches in the world are Pentecostal. It all started in Seymour’s church.  the Azusa street church walls were covered with canes and crutches left there by people who had been healed. At 52 Seymour had two massive heart attacks and died. He was a very healthy looking young man who loved God and loved people.

What went wrong?

So many great movements of God were hindered by the early death of their leaders. Leaders who believed God would heal them and keep them free from disease, but did not do what God said must be done to stay healthy and live a full lifespan. Other  great leaders did listen to God’s advice, consequently they where going strong long into their nineties. Following God’s law includes his dietary laws. Following God’s laws will keep Christians active in their gifts many years past the average american lifespan.

So what did Paul mean when he said, “You who are trying to be justified by law have been alienated from Christ; you have fallen away from grace.” Galatians 5:4

Paul is saying that if anyone thinks obedience to God’s Law needs to be added to his or her faith in Christ, so they can be justified or saved, he is alienating himself from Christ. In Galatians 3:1-5 Paul further states that such a person is bewitched.  Obedience to the Law cannot add anything to what Jesus did on the cross for us.

Christ plus nothing = salvation.

I know of one congregation in Portland Oregon that split over just this issue. Half of their congregation actually started to do animal sacrifices for the forgiveness of sin. From a Christian perspective, that is nuts, Christ died once for all and there is no need for sacrifices any more. Obedience to the law cannot save us from eternal punishment. Jesus also confronted the Pharisees on this point.

You diligently study the Scriptures (Old testament law and prophets) because you think that by them you possess eternal life. These are the Scriptures that testify about me, yet you refuse to come to me to have life.” John 5:39,40

Jesus was teaching that God’s law never could save anyone and that he (Jesus) was the source of salvation. So; since salvation is only found in Jesus Christ, and by his grace, does that mean that God wants us to stop observing God’s  law. Does that mean we are to stop following its advice? (See Proverbs Chapter 1:29-33) Since God cannot love you and me anymore than He already does, since obeying the law won’t make him love you more, why should you obey the Law?

Because there are other reasons to follow the law apart from salvation.

First; what God likes and does not like has never changed. God’s law states that we should not bear false witness, that we shouldn’t tell lies. Everyone knows that if you continue to tell lies, people will not like you or believe you even if you tell the truth. No one would say that if you follow that law you would be under a curse; no, it is just the opposite.

Secondly there are unwanted consequences to disobeying God’s law apart from Hell. The law is for physical health, that is what the word states. It never says obedience to the law will save us from hell, it says that it will save us from disease and a shortened life.

A third  point to make, is that the followers of Christ did not stop obeying and teaching the law after Jesus was crucified. In Acts chapter 22:12-16 Paul is describing the Christian who guided him and healed his eyes.

A devout observer of God’s law!

A man named Ananias came to see me. He was a devout observer of the law and highly respected by all the Jews living there. He stood beside me and said, ‘Brother Saul, receive your sight!’ And at that very moment I was able to see him.” Acts 22:12-16

God obviously used Ananias in a powerful way and the scriptures commend his way of life by describing him as a “devout observer of the law.”

It is interesting how we are all disgusted with famous preachers who are not devout observers of the Law.

Men and Women who are drunkards, steal money, lie, or commit sexual sins. We reject them as poor representatives of God. God and the world are still looking for men and women that are living devout holy lives. The world is also looking for men and women to follow, men and women who are not constantly struggling with disease or struggling financially. The Old Testament has wise words to help us avoid, these problems.

Shary and I have some Christian friends that we have known for over 30 years. They love God and love people; are a tremendous blessing to us in many ways. They are givers, that is, they freely give to missions and to people in need…BUT… they have a strong belief that it is a sin to obey God’s Law, (found in the Old Testament), even though they are great givers they believe that if you follow the Old Testament advice, you are putting yourself under God’s Law and that is wrong. Let me give you an example of how that’s working in their lives. Malachi 3:8-10 states…

bible, law, old testament, curse, bewitched, nutrition, dietary laws

Will a man rob God?

 

“Will a man rob God? Yet you rob me. But you ask‘How do we rob you?’ “In tithes and offerings. You are under a curse—the whole nation of you—because you are robbing me. Bring the whole title into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. Test me in this.” Says the Lord Almighty. “and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that you will not have room enough for it.”

These friends of ours are convinced that tithing is wrong, simply because it is found in the Old Testament. They believe that they would be putting themselves under a curse if they follow this Old Testament teaching. Here are the results of their belief system. In the 30 years we have known each other, this couple has lost more money than most people will ever see in a lifetime. They have lost two inheritances; each one was hundreds of thousands of dollars. They have had numerous huge business ventures fail and they have taken out bankruptcy at least once that we know of.

What they are experiencing looks a lot like the curse that Malachi said would happen if you don’t tithe.

A retired pastor

I have another friend who is a retired pastor, he has stated that he believes Old Testament tithing is wrong . He struggled financially his entire life, which isn’t all that uncommon for pastors. When he retired he received a large inheritance, which he believed would take care of him and his wife, very well, the rest of their lives. It was all lost in a couple of years through unfortunate circumstances beyond his control. Again, what he experienced was exactly what Malachi chapter 3 says will happen to people who rob God by not tithing.

My point in relaying these stories is that if you obey God’s law, you will get what God says you will get…a blessing, not a curse. Again, I want to emphasize that observing God’s Law won’t get you to heaven.

So if God’s law won’t get you to heaven what good is it?

Proverbs 4:20-22 states…”My son, pay attention to what I say; listen closely to my words. Do not let them out of your sight, keep them within your heart; for they are life to those who find them and health to a man’s whole body.”

The apostle Paul states in 1 Timothy 1:8…”We know that the law is good if one uses it properly.”

God’s Law is good for exactly what he says it is good for, in both the New Testament and the Old. It is good for producing life and health

So history, personal experience and science all point to the fact that listening to God and following his advice about food choices will bring life and health to any man or woman’s whole body.

THE ONLY WAY TO EXCEPTIONAL EMOTIONAL, SPIRITUAL AND PHYSICAL HEALTH, IS TO SPEND TIME EACH DAY LISTENING TO JESUS CHRIST AND DOING WHAT HE SAYS.

The Law and the prophets; friends or foe? Part 2

unclean food, Diabetes, Heart disease, Arthritis, Health food, Bible, nutrition, disease,

If Jesus declared all foods clean; (Mark 7:19)     why does Wellness Gospel say that unclean food still exists?

In the gospel of Mark Jesus declared all foods clean. Some believe that when he did that all the things listed in the Old Testament as unclean food, instantly became healthy for people to eat.

New International Version
For it doesn’t go into their heart but into their stomach, and then out of the body.” (In saying this, Jesus declared all foods clean.)

New Living Translation
Food doesn’t go into your heart, but only passes through the stomach and then goes into the sewer.” (By saying this, he declared that every kind of food is acceptable in God’s eyes.)

There is always some, self-proclaimed “theologian”, who reads this passage and says, “If Jesus declared all foods clean, then there is no such thing as unclean food. And there is no point in being careful or particular about what we eat!  Since all foods are equally healthy, we should just eat what we want and enjoy it.”

That one idea, “there is no longer any unclean food,” has killed more good, loving Christians than all the persecutions through the ages. 

My initial answer to people who are saying this is, “how’s that working for you”! It never is working for them, in fact it is killing them. It is the reason they will not get to see their children’s children get married and have kids. Not following God’s instructions concerning food choices is the reason they will spend much of their adult life fighting off diabetes, heart disease, arthritis and cancer.

First of all; if it were true that there are no unclean foods and that all foods are equally healthy, then we wouldn’t have ever had the following disasters.

Jack in the Box, 1993

unclean food, Diabetes, Heart disease, Arthritis, Health food, Bible, nutrition, disease,

732 people were affected by unclean food containing E. coli. It was the most infamous food poisoning outbreak in history, it nearly forced Jack in the Box out of business. 73 locations across California, Idaho, Washington, and Nevada served undercooked patties.  A specially promoted “Monster Burger” wasn’t cooked long enough to kill off the bacteria. Four people died, all of them children, and 178 others were left with permanent damage.

 

Chipotle, 2015

unclean food, diabetes, Heart disease, Arthritis, Health food, Bible, nutrition, disease,

In 2015, unclean food caused a norovirus outbreak in Simi Valley, California. The outbreak sickening 243, a salmonella outbreak in Minnesota and Wisconsin sickened 54, E. coli sickened 60 people in 11 states. It landed 22 in the hospital. A second norovirus outbreak in Boston sickened 143. The cause? Chipotle. While the exact culprit of the E. coli and salmonella will likely never be known, the two norovirus outbreaks were caused by sick employees who came into work. The chain has implemented several new rules and regulations in order to prevent this from happening again, but its reputation has taken a major hit.

McDonalds, 2004

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Super_Size_Me

Then there is the blockbuster documentary “Super-Size Me”. It was nominated for an academy award.  In the movie, Morgan Spurlock gets checked out by doctors and found to be in great health. Then he proceeds to eat only McDonalds food for thirty days. At the end of the thirty days he goes back to the doctors to see what effect eating McDonalds food had on his health.

Spurlock had gained 24 lbs. and , increased his cholesterol from 160 to 230 mg/dL. He also experienced mood swingssexual dysfunction, and fat accumulation in his liver. The doctors told him he was killing himself and needed to stop eating whatever it was he was he was eating and go back to his previous diet. Evidently not all food is created equal, maybe there is still such a thing as unclean food.

Does anyone really believe that all foods are equal? That all foods have the same amount of nutritional value? When Jesus declared all foods clean, wasn’t he aware of basic nutrition 101?

We believe that Jesus knew exactly what he was saying. Nothing that he said is contrary to science, health or the Bible. So what did Jesus mean when he said all foods are clean? And wasn’t he contradicting Deuteronomy 11:29 and other passages that list unclean food?

Deuteronomy 11:29 “‘Of the animals that move along the ground, these are unclean for you: the weasel, the rat, any kind of great lizard,

Matthew 5:19 “Therefore anyone who sets aside one of the least of these commands and teaches others accordingly will be called least in the kingdom of heaven, but whoever practices and teaches these commands will be called great in the kingdom of heaven.”   (Jesus speaking)

Mark 7:18Are you so dull?”  He  (Jesus) asked. “Don’t you see that nothing that enters a man from the outside can make him ‘unclean’? For it doesn’t go into his heart but into his stomach, and then out of his body.” (In saying this, Jesus declared all foods “clean”)

First of all, if you are a serious Bible student, you know that the word of God does not contradict itself.

Jesus is not confused, saying at one time you need to practice and teach the Law, and at another time that the Law is incorrect in saying that there is unclean food that should not be eaten. He is not like our politicians who say one thing to one group and something different to another group just to make everyone like them. You and I must rightly divide God’s word in order to understand it, and sometimes it requires a little hard work on our part.

2 Peter 3:16, speaking about the Apostle Paul who wrote a large portion of the New Testament, Peter says,  “He writes the same way in all his letters, speaking in them of these matters. His letters contain some things that are hard to understand, which ignorant and unstable people distort, as they do the other Scriptures, to their own destruction.

Some things in the Bible are a little harder to understand than others but it is well worth our time to get the correct meaning.

One way is to look at the context that the passage is found in. The context of Mark 7:18-19, is where Jesus is rebuking the Pharisees and teachers of the law because he says, “You have let go of the commands of God and are holding on to the traditions of men… You have a fine way of setting aside the commands of God in order to observe your own traditions!” Mark 7:1-9

Notice Jesus is not making friends, he is actually rebuking them for not following the law and the prophets. They were teaching that if you did not do a “ceremonial washing of your hands, cups, pitchers and kettles” that what you were eating became unclean food. We are talking about food that the law said was clean. (Lamb, beef, etc.) He was not talking about pig, rat, or shellfish.

We need to also notice that Jesus made a distinction between the heart (spirit, soul) and the body (Our flesh).

He was making a point that the Pharisees had missed. He wasn’t changing or nullifying the Old Testament scriptures, he was explaining them. Unwashed hands will not affect your heart or your spirit. It is what comes out of your mouth and my mouth that will affect our hearts. The Pharisees were concerned about ceremonial traditions that weren’t in the law.

Jesus was not teaching, as some people suppose, that all of a sudden unwashed hands couldn’t hurt you. If that were true Chipotle wouldn’t have been the focus of some very negative news that dominated the media for months. Cooks with hepatitis who tossed your salad couldn’t harm you. No one believes that! You’d have to be a couple of fries short of a happy meal to believe that.  So why would do people believe that Jesus was teaching us that all foods are physically clean, that all foods are equal, concerning our health?

Jesus was declaring food to be spiritually neutral. It has no direct effect on your spirit or your soul.

If Jesus  was teaching that the disciples should stop adhering to the teachings old testament teachings about unclean food, then we could expect that Jesus and the disciples would have acted upon that teaching. Jesus taught that you should not just be a hearer of the word but a doer. Jesus himself never violated any of the Mosaic Laws, he fulfilled them completely. He wasn’t even accused of eating with unwashed hands; it was his disciples who were accused of it.

Jesus never ate any unclean food. He even gave the Pharisees an opportunity to expose any violations of the  Mosaic law, that he might have made, if they could, “Can any of you prove me guilty of sin?” (John 18:46a) The Pharisees would have nailed him on that, but they could not, because he never disobeyed any of the Law, not even the least of the laws.

Then there is Peter’s declaration, many years after the resurrection and after Pentecost,

Acts 10:14  “Surely not, Lord!” Peter replied. “I have never eaten anything impure or unclean.”

Why would the Apostle Peter still be observing the Mosaic food Laws if Jesus had taught him not to?

The answer is this; Jesus didn’t teach Peter not to observe the Law, on the contrary in Matthew chapter 5:17-19 Jesus taught Peter and the Apostles to teach and practice the Law till heaven and earth disappeared.

When Jesus declared all foods clean he was referring to the more important issue of the heart. The Pharisees had heart issues and they wanted to focus on food and ceremonies. We need to keep our hearts pure first, no amount of good nutrition can undo a heart that has no place for God. But if your heart is right with God and you ignore his teaching about what to eat and what not to eat, you will be unhealthy and get to see Jesus in heaven sooner than God intended.

THE ONLY WAY TO EXCEPTIONAL EMOTIONAL, SPIRITUAL AND PHYSICAL HEALTH, IS TO SPEND TIME EACH DAY LISTENING TO JESUS CHRIST AND DOING WHAT HE SAYS.

Some Good loving Christian teachers drive me crazy!!!

Super-centenarians, food, Bible, God, milk, butter, eggs, red meat, salt, cheese

This stuff drives me crazy!!!

A friend of mine called me the other day and said I should listen to a very popular Christian radio program. I know believe he was trying to drive me crazy and thought it would be funny to get my reaction. He listens to this program regularly and the last couple of days they were talking about how Christians should honor God by taking good care of their bodies. They had some very specific ways they believed you should do that. He said he thought I would enjoy it. Yeah, right!

I was hanging out in my living room with family and decided to get on my computer and looked up their archived shows and listen. My son Angelo was hanging out with me at the house; as soon as he heard what they were peddling, he immediately started laughing at me. He said our friend knew what I believed and was obviously trying to see how agitated he could get me.

Well it worked, I got agitated! *&%$#&**@#$%^. The more I listened and the more I thought about it the crazier I got!

This stuff makes us crazy!!! What are those people thinking? (Granddaughter Sadie & I)

The next time I saw my friend, I accused him of baiting me; he looked all innocent and acted shocked that I would suggest such a thing. He went on to tell me that he thought I would really like it, seeing how I love hearing health advice from the Bible. Right, I’m not buying his story.

So, that radio program is one I generally appreciate, (not going to mention their name).  They give out a lot of great Christian advice, some of which has had a huge beneficial impact on my family over the years. Like when they told me how I could almost eliminate my wife’s PMS, that one bit of advice has probably saved my life more than once.

What got me so agitated and crazy? Well I’ll tell ya! They were saying that we had an obligation to God to take good care of our bodies, which I agree with. Then they proceeded to give example after example of things that we shouldn’t eat. Every suggestion was opposed to God’s word and to current scientific discoveries. Click here for more infomation.

 So what, in a nutshell were they advocating?

  • Don’t eat red meat.
  • Avoid milk, especially whole milk.
  • Stay away from salt.
  • Stop eating eggs.
  • Use margarine instead of butter.
  • Above all, never eat cheese again!

 

This is crazy and here is why this gets me so agitated!!! Millions of good God loving Christians are sick and dying young because they are following this kind of advice. They do not believe, or have not been taught that the instructions God has given us about food, matters. Well meaning, bible believing Christians are teaching people to abstain from food that God has ordained for them to eat. And then they tell us, the reason you should avoid these foods is to honor God.

If I told one of my kids to do something, and they said the reason they weren’t going to do it was so they could honor me.  I would be more than perplexed it would make me crazy.

Fortunately God is not like me; what we do can’t make him crazy, cuz if it could, we would have made him crazy a long time ago. But, the real reason for this is simply a lack of knowledge about what God has said about food.

Hosea 4:6 says: My people parish for lack of knowledge (Biblical knowledge)

So let me show you what God says about these foods and show how super-centenarians follow God’s advice instead of the crazy experts.

These super-centenarians  outlived all the experts of their time and so will you if you listen to God.

In Exodus 23:25-26 God said that if we obey all his commandments, He will…take away sickness  from among you” and  “give you a full life span.

 Red Meat

Leviticus 11:1-3 The Lord said to Moses and Aaron, ‘Say to the Israelites: Of all the animals that live on land, these are the ones you may eat: You may eat any animal that has a split hoof completely divided and that chews the cud.’”     (That is the definition of what we today call red meat)

At 105 Reverend Otis Clark told me he ate red meat twice a day. He was still preaching vigorously at the age of 109. click here to watch him!

Milk

  • Exodus 3:7-8 says that God was going to bless his people by taking them to… a land flowing with milk and honey
  • I Corinthians 9:7 “who tends the flock and does not drink of the milk?”
  • Deuteronomy 32:13-14 says “He (God) nourished him with…curds and milk from herd  and  flock.”
  • Proverbs 27:27 says, “You will have plenty of goat’s milk to feed you and your family and to nourish your servant girls.” 

In 2008, Tomoji Tanabe was the oldest  male alive with the necessary papers to prove it. At 113 years old, he lived on the island of Kyushu, Japan with his fifth son, who was 68 years old. Reporters wanted to know if Tamoji was tired of living, so, they asked him, “How much longer do you want to live?”, thinking that he can’t possibly have much quality of life at 113.  He simply replied “I don’t want to die.” He was still getting enjoyment out of life.

Tamoji said that he drinks milk every day. Actually, he is known to “guzzle” milk.

Mbah Gotho at 147 years is probably the oldest living person on the planet. I read an article years ago, about an Indonesian man who was claiming to be over 140. Therefore, I think it was Gotho. As I remember the story, he did not make it into the Guinness Book of World Records, because he did not have the proper paper work to prove his age. His longevity was pretty believable though. He had a son who took care of him that was over 100 years old.

Mbah Gotho remembers watching a local sugar factory being built when he was about 10, that factory was built in 1880, you do the math. All that to say this, it is very likely that he is way over 100 years old and he claimes to drink close to a gallon of goats milk every day. Evidently, the milk didn’t hurt his longevity. I hope this drives the no-milk people crazy.

Salt

  • In Mark 9:50 Jesus made this statement…    Salt is good.”
  • Leviticus 2:13 “Add salt to all your offerings
  • Numbers 18:18-19Their meat is to be yours, just as the breast of the wave offering and the right thigh are yours. Whatever is set aside from the holy offerings the Israelites present to the Lord I give to you and your sons and daughters as your regular share. It is an everlasting covenant of salt before the Lord for both you and your offspring.”

God gave the offerings to the priests and the tribe of Levi. They did not receive land like the other tribes so they got their food from offerings. All the offerings were salted, consequently the tribe of Levi got lots of salt in their diets. The first priests were Moses, Aaron and Levi, Moses lived to be 120, Aaron 123 and Levi made it to 137. These guys lived to be crazy old; again, salt evidently did’t shorten their lives.

Eggs 

  • Luke 11:11 Jesus said… “Which of you fathers, if your son asks for… an egg, will give him a scorpion? If you then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give the Holy Spirit to those who ask him!”

Emma Morano was the oldest “documented” person on the planet, she had the paper work to prove her age. Emma lived in three different centuries, that is, she was the last person alive, who was born in the 1800’s. She was born November 29th1899, in the Piedmont region of Italy, when King Umberto reigned.  At 117 years old, Emma Morano still had a sense of humor and a keen wit and a love for eggs.

Crazy, Super-centenarians, food, Bible, God, milk, butter, eggs, red meat, salt, cheese
Eggs, eggs and more eggs!

Emma eats three eggs each day, two raw and one fried egg with minced meat.

Her doctor said she must have great genetic makeup because he believes she is doing is crazy.  She disagrees with her doctor and says her diet is one reason she has outlived everyone else on the planet. The other reason she gives for her longevity, is her escape from an awful marriage. An evil spouse will definitely shorten anyone’s life or make you wish it was shorter.

When Emma was a teenager, a doctor made a crazy suggestion. He told her to eat raw eggs to combat her anemia. You see Emma was like most everyone else, she was sick and headed for a short disease filled life.  Someone suggested she eat eggs, something that the Bible says is very good. She has followed a stringent diet of two raw eggs, one cooked egg, a little minced meat and pasta for the past 100 years.

Emma Morano at 117 eat a lot of eggs in her life.

  • Carlo Bava, Emma’s doctor, said she has perfect cholesterol and glucose levels. “She is in a great state of health and mind,”he said. “The fact that she has never had much variety in her diet is proof that she is so well-preserved thanks to genetics.” Once again a medical doctor believes that genetics are the answer to long life. God says that long life is not found in genetics. Genetics are out of your control. Long life is found in lifestyle, which we can improve by simply listening to and following God’s advice. Emma is the living proof that following God’s advice works.
  • Deuteronomy  32:45b-47aTake to heart all the words I have solemnly declared to you this day, so that you may command your children to obey carefully all the words of this law. They are not just idle words for you—they are your life. By them you will live long” 

 

  • Butter and Cheese

  •  Sarah and Abraham, of bible fame, ate butter, red meat and drank milk. Sarah lived to be 127 and was so beautiful, that at 65, “the Egyptians saw the woman, that she was very beautiful.  The princes of Pharaoh also saw her and commended her to Pharaoh.” (Gen 12:14-15) She was so vivacious that she was able to carried and give birth to a healthy child at 90 years old. After giving birth, the King of Gerar found her so attractive that he wanted her to be his wife, crazy right? Abraham was so healthy that he lived to be 175. Evidently, the butter they ate didn’t hurt them. Maybe, just maybe, it was why they were so healthy.
  • 2 Samuel 17:27-29 wheat, barley, flour, parched grain, beans, lentils, parched seeds, honey, curds, sheep, and cheese of the herd, for David and for the people
  • Isaiah 7:14-15 “Therefore, the Lord Himself will give you a sign: The virgin will conceive, have a son, and name him Emmanuel,  By the time he learns to reject what is bad and choose what is good, he will be eating butter, curds(cheese) and honey.”

Yes you read that right, when Jesus was old enough to know what was good and what was bad he choose to eat butter, cheese and honey. If you want to live long and strong you will have to do the crazy thing and follow God’s advice. Reject man’s wisdom, even if it comes from well meaning experts.

THE ONLY WAY TO EXCEPTIONAL EMOTIONAL, SPIRITUAL AND PHYSICAL HEALTH, IS TO SPEND TIME EACH DAY LISTENING TO JESUS CHRIST AND DOING WHAT HE SAYS.

“The Secret” health insurance companies don’t want you to hear!

The Secret, Health Insurance, doctors, Hospitals, savings

Our Insurance agent leaked, “The Secret”,  Health insurance companies don’t want you to discover!

In 1973, Shary and I were newly married, had good jobs. We were managing a small golf course and were pregnant with our first child Leslie. So; it just seemed like it was time we acted like grownups and got health insurance.

Shary and I with Leslie just after our conversation with my insurance agent.

My Uncle Art Schauermann was our insurance agent, we had our car insurance through him but he also carried all kinds of other insurance products. So, we called him up and asked him to sell us some health insurance. He told us he would come right over to our house to discuss the matter. Evidently, he didn’t want anyone in his office to hear what he was going to tell us.

Art Schauermann, my uncle and my insurance agent!

My uncle Art was a great guy, he and my dad had been partners in a couple of businesses. They were also close friends, we would go camping and water skiing together on a regular basis.  Uncle Art liked me, so maybe that is why he felt compelled to tell us “The Secret”.

He told us he wouldn’t sell us health insurance!

He sat down with us at our kitchen table and basically said he wouldn’t sell us health insurance. I replied by saying something like,” you’re an insurance agent that sells health insurance, and you won’t sell us health insurance, what’s with that?”

He proceeded to tell Shary and I that health insurance companies were in business to make money, and lots of it. He said that virtually nobody wins in the health insurance game, except the insurance companies. Why? Because the game is rigged. It is kind of like going to Vegas; you’re gambling that the insurance companies will pay out more in health coverage than you pay them. Vegas the longer you play the slots the more likely you are to come away with less mony.

People are often surprised at what their health insurance doesn’t pay for!

First, the health insurance companies couldn’t stay in business if they payed out as much as people paid in. Second, they have to pay for advertising, agents, adjusters, office help, skyscrapers, administrators and shareholders profits. Health insurance companies are some of the most profitable companies in the world. Why? Because they pay back a very small percent of what you pay in. You are gambling that they will pay more and they are gambling that you will pay more. So; they set the premiums very high, and do their best to limit how much coverage you get. Often people are surprised at what their health insurance doesn’t pay for.

Health Insurance, the secret, Bible, wellness, doctors, hospitals

My uncle then told us that all of this is true for the average family. So; he said, if you are of average health you will loose big. But, if you take better care of yourself than most people you will be an even bigger looser. He suggested we take what we would pay in premiums and put that money in the bank every month, saving up for any medical expense we could have in the future.  He said it would be crazy for us to get health insurance

So how do we pay the hospitals and doctors if we haven’t saved anything yet?

I told him that we hadn’t saved anything yet so how would we pay the hospital or doctors expenses if we got sick or had a baby, something we were about to do.  Well, uncle Art continued, the hospitals and doctors will all take payments after you receive their services. Mind you,  those payments will be far less than the monthly premiums you would have been paying to the insurance company. Also the payments to the doctor or hospital stop when they are fully paid. The payments to the health insurance company never stop.

So, we took uncle Art’s advice, and it turned out he was so right. Sharing, “The Secret” saved us so much money. It allowed us to live like normal people while raising 13 kids and living on a pastor’s salary.

Since then we have learned even more about health care.

  • When hospitals find out you are paying for their services instead of a health insurance company, they will typically reduce the bill by 1/3. Why? Because they know that most people don’t have unlimited funds like the insurance companies.
  • If Doctors and hospitals find out you will be paying cash they will often give you an even bigger discount.
  • Hospitals will not order unnecessary procedures and tests if they know you are paying for them out of pocket.  If an insurance company is paying they will order all the test your insurance provider will accept. (there is some research that suggest the more tests you get the more unnecessary procedures you get, that includes cancer treatments that are not necessary. My sister-in-law got chemo treatments by mistake, they later found that she never had cancer.)

So how did knowing “The Secret” about health insurance  pan-out for us?

Most of our children never saw or needed a doctor. The worst thing that happened was when our daughter Leah was riding a stallion bareback near our home. The horse was quite tall and a little unpredictable. He threw her off and she broke her arm. Like any good Christian, we prayed for her but it still hurt her badly. So, we took her to the hospital. Because we try to follow God’s advice for healthy living, the doctors found that she had really tough bones. All she needed to do was put her arm in a sling for a while, the whole thing cost $425. All four of our hospital/doctor births together cost $1200, the rest of our births were at home, consequently they were free.

The hospital reduced the bill by $5,000!

A couple of years ago Shary had a number of symptoms that looked like a heart attack. We prayed and when nothing changed we rushed her to the hospital, they did tests and found that she was just fine. The doctor was actually mad that he couldn’t find any problems with her heart. Her blood work showed she had no heart damage and was very healthy. He kept her in the hospital for about 11 hours anyway. The initial bill was $11,000, but when the hospital found out we didn’t have  health insurance, and we would be paying cash, they reduced the bill to $6,000. So, over the course of 40 plus years we paid out less than $10,000 dollars in medical expenses for our entire family. Our premiums for those 40 years would have been more than $500,000.

My uncle Art’s sharing, “The Secret” with us has changed our lives in many ways. The reason we are sharing with you is so you can make an educated decision about health insurance. Hopefully it will be of help to you and yours as well.

Health Insurance, the secret, Bible, wellness, doctors, hospitals

In Exodus 23:25-26 God said that if we obey his commandments, He will… “take away sickness  from among you” and that He will… “give you a full life span.

The Bible encourages us to “trust in the Lord”, not in our money or our health insurance company. We have seen a lot of miracles, but even when we don’t get a miracle, God has still been faithful to make the problems much smaller than we might have anticipated.

Often people have asked us how we raised thirteen kids on a pastors salary. Not buying health insurance was one of those ways. Obeying God’s commands was another. Our favorite scripture during those years with all the kids was psalm 127:

Unless the Lord builds the house, the builders labor in vain.
Unless the Lord watches over the city,  the guards stand watch in vain.
In vain you rise early  and stay up late, eating the bread of anxious toil—
for he gives sleep to[a] those he loves.                                                                  Children are a heritage from the Lord, offspring a reward from him.
Like arrows in the hands of a warrior are children born in one’s youth.
Happy is the man whose quiver is full of them. They will not be put to shame when they contend with their opponents in court.

There are always people who say, “I don’t care about following all of that “health advice” I have health insurance, when I get sick, my insurance company pays for my surgeries, medications and my hospital bills.”

It has been far more beneficial for us to have the Lord watch over us than any insurance company. We have been far happier with this plan than we ever dreamed.

Many people are not comfortable with this strategy and that’s OK. Whatever you choose to do, you need to have peace. If you don’t have peace your body will secrete chemicals that will undo all the exercise and good food you eat and any money you saved will be lost.

ONCE AGAIN, WE BELIEVE THE ONLY WAY TO EXCEPTIONAL EMOTIONAL AND PHYSICAL HEALTH, AND WELLNESS, IS TO SPEND TIME EACH DAY WITH THE GREAT PHYSICIAN, JESUS CHRIST!
