Conquer Series – The Battle Plan for Purity

The Conquer Series is an expertly crafted series to help men overcome sin of all kinds, but particularly the elephant in the room in all churches: sexual addiction. It may surprise some to know that 68% of evangelical males regularly view pornography.  Another stat states that 90% of conservative males regularly view pornography.  The church has failed these men, but not for the reasons you may think.

Shouldn’t conservative males be better at overcoming sin?  Actually, when you understand how addiction works, then you will understand it is a problem the church cannot solve in its current state, and will only continue to make worse by preaching condemnation on these sins, as is generally the case in the conservative Christian denominations.
Christ said “For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.” John 3:17.

Clearly sexual sin of any kind isn’t a part of God’s plan, but knowing that won’t help people overcome any addiction.  Generally deep down, they all know their sin is wrong, and feel completely condemned by it. So is there a way out?  There certainly is. This series gives men the tools to overcome this and pretty much any other sin.  Watch these two trailers and then consider grabbing the brilliantly produced series (I can’t recommend it highly enough for any male Christian who wishes to conquer sin – wives, buy it for your husbands, the may need it more than you think):

Dr Timothy Jennings – The God Shaped Brain – Neuroplasticity, Epigenetics, and the Bible.

Outstanding series of videos on how the brain works, and how the bible was way ahead of science in many things that we are only learning today, including Neuroplasticity,  Epigenetics and many other areas of molecular brain function.  The first in the series is on a practical use of these techniques, and then further shows the science as to how it all happens.

Latest Nutrition Science for 2014

There has been a significant amount of progress since Colin T Campbell and his colleges did the China Study (if you haven’t read the book, you should).  In the following video, Dr Michael Greger from Nutritionfacts.org takes us through nutrition science that has come to light over the last year.  As always the science seems to very strongly indicated that a plant based diet is the best way to avoid the leading causes of death.

How Much Water Do We Need?

Got asthma?  Got back pain? Got constipation? Got headaches?  Got random aches and pains.  Maybe you aren’t drinking enough water.  How much is enough?

According to the following video, approx 33ml / 1kg of body weight. (not all at once, spread evenly over the day, sipped) i.e. for a 75kg person, approx 2.45 litres per day (you will need a lot more than this if exercising.

What is the best type of water?  clean water (note this guy mentions distilled water as the best, but in later articles he has retracted that.  Distilled water is good for detoxing, but in the long term it isn’t the best)

For an explanation of why watch this video (very interesting):
