This is a very interesting project by the guys at little light about how martial arts can direct us away from God. If you have been into martial arts, or still are, remember to keep an open mind. This isn’t a production designed to set rules in stone about what you can and can’t do, but rather to warn you of potential danger. Thanks heaps to the guys at little light for releasing the first 1h for free. If you gain a blessing and wish to learn more, they will have a second part available in the next few months here for a very small contribution.
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.
It is interesting that faith comes by hearing the word of God… This is in a spiritual sense, however for me the blessing I have gained from listening to the bible has been difficult to measure. I personally am a rather poor reader, but I have found the bible comes alive when listening to it.
There are a number of very good audio bibles out there, I really like Alexander Scourby’s reading of the KJV (you can get it from the apple app store or the android marketplace or simply buy the mp3s to use on your computer or tablet www.scourby.com).
Lately I have been attempting to get my children more interested in learning the word. Many point to other bible versions that have simpler wording… sadly, the distortion of the word in these versions tends to make this counter productive. Thankfully there is another option. I have found they seem to understand far more clearly the dramatization of the King James Bible found at www.bible.is. This is a great site that has audio bibles in many many languages. There are also apps on the Android and Apple stores. The best part is, they are free.
Pope attempts reconciliation with the Islamic and Jewish communities in Israel.
What do Jews, Muslims and Protestants have in common? They are all wondering after the beast now apparently. Amazing fulfilments of prophecy.
First here is the real guy, Edward Fudge, describing his belief on the doctrine of the immortality of the soul and hell. It is quite a compelling set of arguments, and very worthwhile to anyone who wishes to get another perspective on the topic:
Next, here is the feature length movie called “Hell & Mr Fudge” that has been made about the story of Edward Fudge. It describes the struggle he went through as his town rejected his new found perspective on God and the bible. Here is the movie if you wish to rent or buy it (video download). It is likely to be one of the very few movies with substance that you will watch:

Very interesting video for Seventh Day Adventists. Steve Wohlberg shows in this video how there is a second church emerging in the SDA church. It is time for a shaking.
A time is coming when people will not endure sound doctrine, but after their own lusts will heap to themselves teachers… that time has come. We need to take action as a church.
