God Uses Internet People
So often I am asked, "How do you know that you are operating in God's will?"
Normally, I need not look beyond the previous week for an example of His miraculous work in my life to answer the question.
This is the first article that I have published under Religion or Spirituality. Hopefully, it will not be my last. I feel that everything that I do ~ or write ~ is a reflection of the problem person that a glorious God has allowed me to become. Not that He gave me the problems; rather I latched on to them all as a result of my own reckless ways. He, however, knew me before I did, and has made provisions to deliver me from myself. To Him be the glory!
Could I have really solved such setbacks myself? The disabling Multiple Sclerosis, loss of prestige, my businesses, my home, my mangled marriages, even forced retirement, have each contributed to my understanding that God's ways are higher than man's ways, His thoughts higher than my thoughts. On an exceptional day, I am aware that He can speak thru me to someone like yourself, cause me to say what you need to hear. Maybe, this is our day?
I am willing. He is able. Now that I am unable to work in a conventional sense, I find I can do little but sit in front of a computer monitor, write articles, and interact via Internet with others. Frankly, I feel I am the recipient of much more than I ever give, in the way of good guidance and positive direction. Helpers materialize unexpectedly. Because of the boundless cyberspace, it is easy for an angel to tap one, who holds an answer to my dilemma, on the shoulder and whisper, "Write an e-mail to this guy." Do you think that our angels are in communication? I do.
This week, for example, after attempting for over three months to locate a physician who would write me a prescription for LDN (Low-Dose-Naltrexone), an inexpensive pharmacological I found on the Internet, which stops Multiple Sclerosis in its tracks, I gave it over to The Lord. My Neurologist and MD were unwilling to prescribe, my Internet query for Drs in my area who would write had come to no good end, and I knew my efforts were for naught.
"Lord," I said, "If you want me on LDN, you are going to have to make it happen. I give up. I'll know that it is Your will, and give You the recognition."
As always, when I quit attempting to do things my way, submit to His superior wisdom and miraculous methods, God is able to accomplish the seemingly impossible ~ in a matter of moments. An LDN user, who contacted me about reading my novel, provided me with the name and telephone number of such a physician, less than a mile from where I reside. I have talked to the good DR. by phone and will see him as soon as he can schedule me in. God is good!
In a future article, I will likely go off about traditional medicine's resistance to seeing sick patients get well, but this is not the time. It is a good time to reflect on what other problems I have been holding on to and determine to give those up too.

The Moment of Truth
Former Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu stated to all of Israel, and the world last night that the moment of truth had arrived. Announcing his resignation as Finance Minister in the Sharon cabinet, he stated that he had been forced to remain in the government, and also remain mostly silent regarding his opposition to the disengagement over these last several months in order to complete his economic reforms, he claimed that he anguished over the continued march towards the disengagement with no signs of gaining anything in return.
Early Spring Cleaning
Has anyone noticed how fast 2004 is going? Hey, we are in December already. I really like December not only because people are nicer to each other and all the pretty decorations are around, but people stop and reflect on the true meaning of Christmas.

The following message entitled THE WOMAN ISSUE is a study for those who truly desire to examine what Scripture says on a very controversial subject: the role of women in the Church. This would make a great bible study or forward the message to church leadership.

Moses v. Jesus: Why do Conservative Christians Prefer Moses Commandments to Jesus Beatitudes?
Why are conservative Christians so concerned about displaying the Ten Commandments in public and especially in courtrooms?Conservatives and their lawyers claim that the Ten Commandments are (or, should regain their position) at the heart of American jurisprudence because the Decalogue represents our commitment to Rule of Law. And, they have made these arguments in cases like McCreary County v.

Biblical Hermeneutics - Part 1
Hermeneutics is the science and art of the interpretive process which begins by determining the original meaning of the Biblical text and leads to elucidation of its sense for the body of Christ today. It is concerned with the presuppositions that are brought to the interpretation of texts because it consciously or unconsciously influences conclusions drawn.
John Roberts and Madalyn Murray - The Turtle and the OHare
Although I've never met Supreme Court nominee John Roberts, I did have a run in of sorts with America's most notorious atheist Madalyn Murray O'Hare in the nineteen eighties. As I walked into a radio station to drop off tapes of my former radio show the DJ called to me from within his booth.

The Green Cross
"We desperately need to recognize that we are the guests not the masters of nature and adopt a new paradigm for development, based on the costs and benefits to all people, and bound by the limits of nature herself rather than the limits of technology and consumerism." Mikhail Gorbachev, Chairman of the Board, Green Cross International"No sane person seeks a world divided between billions of excluded people living in absolute deprivation and a tiny elite guarding their wealth and luxury behind fortress walls.

Building a Church and Church Building Designs
Building a church is a large project that is more than constructing natural materials, because building a church is building an expression of a church congregation's heart. Building a church has a purpose that is much more than housing classrooms or meeting rooms.

After years of watching TV shows and movies, I think I have finally gotten a grasp on Hollywood's theology and it's not a pretty picture (pun intended). It should come as no surprise to anyone that Hollywood's theology is vastly different from that of the average American.
