This is a great article by eatlocalgrown.com. It is great especially for people who think eggs are unhealthy, or that you need to be on a low-fat diet, use canola oil, vegetable oil, and margarine instead of real oils, fats, and butter, or if you think that the quality of food (unprocessed, organic, fresh, and REAL) is unimportant.
Top 5 Worst Nutrition Advice in History:
- Throw away egg yolks, the most nutritious part of the egg
- Everyone should be on a low-fat, high-carb diet, even diabetics
- A calorie is a calorie, food quality is less important
- Use polyunsaturated vegetable oils for cooking
- Replace butter with processed, trans fat laden margarine

“14What good is it, my brothers, if someone says he has faith but does not have works? Can that faith save him? 15If a brother or sister is poorly clothed and lacking in daily food, 16 and one of you says to them, “Go in peace, be warmed and filled,” without giving them the things needed for the body, what good is that? 17So also faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead.
18But someone will say, “You have faith and I have works.” Show me your faith apart from your works, and I will show you my faith by my works. 19You believe that God is one; you do well. Even the demons believe—and shudder! 20Do you want to be shown, you foolish person, that faith apart from works is useless? 21 Was not Abraham our father justified by works when he offered up his son Isaac on the altar? 22You see that faith was active along with his works, and faith was completed by his works; 23and the Scripture was fulfilled that says, “Abraham believed God, and it was counted to him as righteousness”—and he was called a friend of God. 24You see that a person is justified by works and not by faith alone. 25And in the same way was not also Rahab the prostitute justified by works when she received the messengers and sent them out by another way? 26For as the body apart from the spirit is dead, so also faith apart from works is dead.”

Some thoughts on confession…
I think a lot of the time we think of confession as becoming pure or for just receiving forgiveness. Confessing sin isn’t just about coming clean, it’s also about discipleship. Of course people need to confess their sin so that the Lord will forgive (1 John 1:9) but the people we disciple need to know when we’ve made a mistake so they don’t repeat those acts themselves. If they see their mentor sin, and their mentor never confesses that the act was a sin, how is the one being discipled to know it was a sin? Then you have caused your brother or sister to stumble. It could also cause you to look like a hypocrite. If you tell the one you are discipling not to do an act similar to the one you did, he will call you a hypocrite and lose all respect for you – your witness will be tarnished. As Christians we need to be honest with ourselves and with each other. That is the only way iron can sharpen iron (Proverbs 27:17).

Wow… God’s Awesome!!!
ok so this morning in church i did something that pretty much is one of the biggest, most important things i could have done in my life….ever. i committed my life to missions. i always knew i was going to be a missionary but i never really was like “ok God i promise to do what you want me to do for my career. my future is all Yours” until today. mr bill talked about obeying God and getting into the right ministry because every christian is called to do some kind of ministry, so we need to ask God to let us know where we need to be and what we need to do. so God told me that it was time to make that promise so i did. and it was so awesome! i could just tell that it was right.
and then i get home and i’m checking my mail and the daily verse thing for today is: “Choose to love the LORD your God and to obey Him and commit yourself to Him, for He is your life.” -Deuteronomy
isnt that totally crazy!! God is so awesome. i just thought i’d share that with ya’ll because that verse fit perfectly for everything thats going on right now!
