I'd bet you drink fluoride every day, and think it is good for ya. Do you really like rodent poison?

HA! I consider myself moderately spiritual, and I don't take medications at all. I don't believe in altering myself for the convenience of others. I
may have a few problems, but hey, who doesn't?
After seeing your response Opus, I'm going to come to the conclusion that I ought not expect my answer to be sufficient for you.
It is my contention that this study could be valid from several different aspects, even from a bible reader's standpoint. Today's Christians are told
to expect to keep sinning despite the warning that sin gives birth to death.
That's not an expectation that believers in Jesus hold, since people who believe in Jesus also believe that which Jesus taught.
Right after Jesus told John the Baptist, ".. it is fitting for US to fulfill all righteousness." and was baptized and endowed with the Holy Spirit, he
was LED into the wilderness to be tempted by Satan. Jesus resisted the devil and the devil FLED. Christians on the other hand, ought to know that
they are not above Jesus, if he was persecuted so too will his followers be. If he was tempted, so too will his followers be, but his followers are at
a disadvantage, they depend on pastors to tell them what's up when they really should be relying on the true source, not the wayside where birds come
and devour. Jesus, the source of Truth, said, "Go and sin no more, lest something worse happen to you." When a demon comes out of a person, it goes
through dry places and comes back to check on the person to see if they can regain entry, and if they can, they go and find seven more demons stronger
than it'self and invites them to inhabit that person who does not seek to have the Holy Spirit, truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth,
Jesus' words to live by.
Jesus knows that merely believing in God's existence does not bring about righteous living.
"What sorrow awaits you teachers of religious law and you Pharisees. Hypocrites! For you cross land and sea to make one convert, and then you turn
that person into twice the child of hell you yourselves are! -Matthew 23:15
There is a source of confusion, one of many sources, the greatest deception is from the Church it'self, which has been infiltrated by wealthy
Luciferians/Satanists. Jesus told these leaders.
Matthew 23:13 "Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You shut the kingdom of heaven in men's faces. You yourselves do not
enter, nor will you let those enter who are trying to.
This is the reason that judgement begins at the house of God, because God gave people the responsibility of spreading the truth and they didn't
because they relied on man made traditions and were tempted and through their ignorance of scripture, their faith perished.
For the time has come for judgment, and it must begin with God's household. And if judgment begins with us, what terrible fate awaits those who have
never obeyed God's Good News? -1 Peter 4:17
Judgement begins with God's household because the holders of the truth were given the responsibility to SHARE that truth with others, believers are
not about keeping secrets the way that Freemasons do!
What I tell you now in the darkness, shout abroad when daybreak comes. What I whisper in your ear, shout from the housetops for all to hear! -Matthew
Remember that God wouldn't tell us to do something that he himself would not do.
Luke 12:2-3 The time is coming when everything that is covered up will be revealed, and all that is secret will be made known to all. What you have
said in the dark will be heard in the daylight, and what you have whispered in the ear in the inner rooms will be proclaimed from the roofs.
And really, a whole lot of heartache would be spared by all if people would heed this:
Luke 14:28-29 "But don't begin until you count the cost. For who would begin construction of a building without first calculating the cost to see if
there is enough money to finish it? Otherwise, you might complete only the foundation before running out of money, and then everyone would laugh at
