Following on from some political rants I saw around the 4th, these thoughts came flooding to me all at once as I was walking into church! I had just read my big chunks of the Bible, saw that the sermon topic was Life, Liberty and The Pursuit of Happiness, and bam – all of this spilled out. Warning: you will encounter religious content at the end of this post which describes my faith.
Land of the free?
Where large corporations are free to poison for the sake of profit…
Where government agencies and mainstream scientists are free to corrupt science in their effort to bolster their position, court esteem in the public eye, ensure personal job security, not to mention attract cushie research grants.
Where everyone (especially pharmaceutical companies) is free to spread their misinformation through marketing so no one can recognize truth.
Where corporations are free to have 3 lobbyists for every political representative in Washington to ensure they are free to continue their operations with no obstructions by minor facts like the health and well being of our children.
Where medical schools are free to churn out more heavily indebted doctors, indoctrinated by the pharmaceutical industry, while offering no training in natural healing, nutrition (less than 10 hours), respectful birth and beginnings, and true health.
Where doctors are free to give poison instead of helping people understand where true health comes from.
Where people are free to treat their bodies without care or knowledge because it leads to greater profits and sustaining the foundation of the sickness system.
The fear (as in knowledge, respect, awe) of The Lord is the beginning of wisdom. Surrendering to Him will lead us into Truth in every area of our lives. The truth can set us free, if we can identify it. Deception is rampant in the land of the free and the home of the brave. The nature of deception is you don’t know what lies you are believing. All the enemies of Jesus seek to devour us. Many of Jesus’ enemies when he lived on earth were the MOST RESPECTED people in the community. They looked good, smelled good, and most people were in awe of them. The battle is real. In Jesus are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge. He is the Divine Creator of every aspect of our great earth, including our highly complex body. As we seek Him – we seek the fullness of God. Jesus is head over every power and authority and wants to guide you to wisdom in all areas of your life for His glory for your ultimate freedom.
I don’t claim to know everything, but I continue learning all the time. My heart aches for injustice perpetuated on young families today. It has become acceptable for everyone to be sick. It is time for us not to be complacent in the face of the onslaught we are experiencing. People are getting sick – unnecessarily. We need to realize what we are doing to our bodies, and CHANGE! We need to vote with our wallet for clean food, healthy products, and healthy alternatives to the sickness system. We can be the change this country needs.
Jesus said, ‘You are the salt of the earth, but if the salt loses its flavor, how will it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything except to be thrown out and trampled by men.’ Let’s get salty. The world needs our flavor.
Jesus came to earth to show us God, forgive sins, and heal our hearts and our bodies. Our life can help others find this true healing as a light shining in a dark place.
