Worship: For Heaven’s Sake Killing is not just literally taking someone’s life. It is much broader than that. The sixth commandment, “Thou shalt not kill,” is spiritual. (Read Romans 7:14.) (Read more below.)
Wellness: For Health’s Sake Pastor Shelem Flemons, a doctor of biblical wellness, says soybeans, carrots, cruciferous vegetables, flaxseed and its oil and chia seeds (rather than salmon), as well as citrus fruits: all help fight aging. He shared some info about them from a MedicalNewsToday.com article. (Read more below.)

Words of Encouragement
1 Thessalonians 5:19-22 Quench not the Spirit. Despise not prophesyings. Prove all things; hold fast that which is good. Abstain from all appearance of evil.
1 Thessalonians 5:23, 24 And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. Faithful is he that calleth you, who also will do it.
For Heaven’s Sake…
Unrighteous name-calling and spreading lies about people are all the same as murder, which is senseless killing and is different from killing in self-defense. They all kill outright in some senseless way. And God is not pleased.
“We need to stop being angry at people without a cause,” says Pastor Flemons. “Unrighteous anger” is the same thing as murder. The only real cause to be angry is to be angry in defense of God. That is righteous indignation, as in Christ being angry at anyone turning the sanctuary into a place of merchant exchange and a den of thieves.
The Bible, says Pastor Flemons, does not even give you permission to spread sins that you could prove are the sins of a person. Love covers a multitude of sins. That is what the Bible says. (Read James 5:20 and 1 Peter 4:8.) So when you love like Christ loves, then you will not spread anyone’s sins. Rather, you will try to help them or at least pray for them.
Psalm 15 is clear about who is going to heaven and who is not: It reads, “Lord, who shall abide in thy tabernacle? who shall dwell in thy holy hill?2 He that walketh uprightly, and worketh righteousness, and speaketh the truth in his heart.3 He that backbiteth not with his tongue, nor doeth evil to his neighbour, nor taketh up a reproach against his neighbour.4 In whose eyes a vile person is contemned; but he honoureth them that fear the Lord. He that sweareth to his own hurt, and changeth not.5 He that putteth not out his money to usury, nor taketh reward against the innocent. He that doeth these things shall never be moved.”
In case you missed it: “Taking up a reproach,” says Pastor Flemons means listening to an evil report and not allowing the accused to give his or her side of the story.
Jesus, according to Matthew 5:21 and 22, brings it to a conclusion this way: “21 Ye have heard that it was said of them of old time, Thou shalt not kill; and whosoever shall kill shall be in danger of the judgment:22 But I say unto you, That whosoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment: and whosoever shall say to his brother, Raca, shall be in danger of the council: but whosoever shall say, Thou fool, shall be in danger of hell fire.”
Are you a mass murderer with your tongue? If so, you need to stop killing with the lies and the name-calling and even spreading the sins of others. Rather, love. Loving, in truth, will save your own life.
For Health’s Sake…
Soybeans, especially young fresh soybeans or edamame, are rich in isoflavones, a type of phytoestrogen, known for its anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, anti-cancer, and antimicrobial properties. They help “regulate the inflammatory response of the body, slow down cellular aging, fight microbes, as well as reportedly, protect against certain types of cancer.” Because soy has become a target for GMO processing, Pastor Flemons says you must search for non-GMO soy.
Carrots, high in “beta-carotene, a pigment–and carotenoid–” that the body converts into vitamin A, protect “immune function, vision, reproduction, and cellular communication.” The pigment in carrots is “also an antioxidant that can protect the cells in our bodies from the aging damage caused by free radicals.” Foods rich in carotenoids “can protect against age-related macular degeneration, the vision damage caused by old age.”
Cruciferous vegetables, “which include a wide variety of green foods, such as cabbage, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, cauliflower, bok choy, radish, and kale,” are rich in vitamin C, E, K, and folate, potassium, calcium and selenium, as well as the carotenoids: lutein, beta-carotene, and zeaxanthin. Cruciferous vegetables also contain glucosinolates that “seem to regulate the body’s stress and inflammation response.” In fact, leafy greens have been found “to foster brain health.” Thus, they slow down cognitive decline. Pastor Flemons shared one of many experiences of success against disease with guests because of juicing vegetables.
Although the article advises eating salmon for its omega-3 fatty acid content, which is beneficial for eyesight, eye lubrication, and brain health, Pastor Flemons says you should not eat salmon. Rather, stay plant-based and safe. Rather, include flaxseed and its oil and chia seeds in your diet for the benefits of omega-3 fatty acids. “Don’t be fishy,” says Pastor Flemons, who says he adds flaxseeds to the smoothies that he makes for his guests every day. He also provided a simple recipe for enjoying chia seeds.
Citrus fruits are well-known to be high in vitamin C, famous for its antioxidant properties. But too few know them as “the unsung heroes of a healthful diet.” They are dietary heroes because they “are abundant in other macronutrients, including sugars, dietary fiber, potassium, folate, calcium, thiamin, niacin, vitamin B-6, phosphorus, magnesium, copper, riboflavin and pantothenic acid.” “Citrus fruits contain even more organic compounds — such as flavonoids, coumarins, and carotenoids — that have been said to have protective effects against cancer, cardiovascular diseases, and neurodegenerative diseases.” Especially have flavonoid-rich citrus fruits been “associated with a significantly prolonged lifespan.” And a number of citrus fruits are available worldwide. These would include oranges, grapefruit, lemons, limes, clementines, mandarins, and tangerines.”
