“If there is an all-powerful God behind the scenes,” people often ask, “why would He allow such horrible wars? Why doesn’t He put a stop to all that if He’s in control?”
Although God hates war and its blood-thirsty perpetrators and is soon going to intervene and set things right when He “destroys them that destroy the Earth” (Rev.11:18), He hasn’t yet because in so doing, He would have had to put a stop to the main idea of His whole Great Design–Man’s Choice!
Man brings all this evil upon himself through his own sins, his own hand, literally dying by his own hand because of his refusal to receive the Lord, follow God or obey His Word! But if the people would just turn to the Lord and repent of their sins and ask for His forgiveness, He would lift the curse, and remove the whole thing, but they won’t! So He has to let the wars come and all the horrors that man brings upon himself, to show what a mess mankind is without the Lord!
Are you a person of peace?–Or a wager of war! “Blessed are the peacemakers for they shall be called the children of God!” (Mat.5:9). Join the peacemakers and help bring peace to the hearts and minds and souls of men!

Our attractive young travel agent started off by saying how sick she was and how she got this medicine to try to cure it. But then I told her how I didn’t have much confidence in medicine and had more faith in keeping God’s health laws, the rules of health.
We described the rules: proper diet, rest, exercise and right living, not abusing our bodies, and keeping God’s health laws, which we then related to keeping God’s laws in general for our own general happiness and well-being.
Then I said, “Well, after all, if He created us, He knows what is best for us. He’s like a father to us as His children and He wants us to be healthy and happy, so He has set down the rules to keep us from getting hurt or damaging our bodies.
“Of course, one of the greatest of healing factors is faith,” I added, “to know that God loves you and cares for you and is going to take care of you no matter what happens. Faith eliminates one of the greatest causes of disease and ill health, and that’s fear and tension (she was talking about headaches).
“Because then you have peace of mind and you can just rest in the Lord knowing He’s going to take care of everything, which eliminates one of the major causes of psychosomatic diseases.” Continue reading “Sex works great!”
