Worship: The Character and Aims of the Papacy, Pt 10 / Wellness: You Can Reverse Arthritis

Worship: For Heaven’s Sake “This is an age of moral darkness.” Even among God’s so-called Remnant, there is “a spirit of condemnation,” says Pastor Flemons. That is because of the changes occurring among Protestant churches, rather than in the Roman Catholic Church, as is often claimed.

“The Romish Church now presents a fair front to the world, covering with apologies her record of horrible cruelties. She has clothed herself in Christ-like garments; but she is unchanged. Every principle of popery that existed in past ages exists today. The doctrines devised in the darkest ages are still held. Let none deceive themselves. The popery that Protestants are now so ready to honor is the same that ruled the world in the days of the Reformation, when men of God stood up, at the peril of their lives, to expose her iniquity. She possesses the same pride and arrogant assumption that lorded it over kings and princes, and claimed the prerogatives of God. Her spirit is no less cruel and despotic now than when she crushed out human liberty, and slew the saints of the Most High. ” {GC88 570.3}

“It is not without reason that the claim has been put forth in Protestant countries, that Catholicism differs less widely from Protestantism than in former times. There has been a change; but the change is not in the papacy. Catholicism indeed resembles much of the Protestantism that now exists, because Protestantism has so greatly degenerated since the days of the reformers. {GC88 571.2}

“As the Protestant churches have been seeking the favor of the world, false charity has blinded their eyes. They do not see but that it is right to believe good of all evil; and as the inevitable result, they will finally believe evil of all good. Instead of standing in defense of the faith once delivered to the saints, they are now, as it were, apologizing to Rome for their uncharitable opinion of her, begging pardon for their bigotry.”  {GC88 571.3}

If, according to algebra, A equals B, and B equals C, then A equals C,” says Pastor Flemons. Since, the Remnant Church (A) has become like Apostate Protestant churches (B), which are like the Papacy (C), then the Remnant Church (A) has become like the Papacy (C). That is why the former official attitude of the Remnant Church toward the Catholic Church has now been consigned to some “historical trash heap.”

“A prayerful study of the Bible would show Protestants the real character of the papacy, and would cause them to abhor and to shun it; but many are so wise in their own conceit that they feel no need of humbly seeking God that they may be led into the truth. Although priding themselves on their enlightenment, they are ignorant both of the Scriptures and of the power of God. They must have some means of quieting their consciences; and they seek that which is least spiritual and humiliating. What they desire is a method of forgetting God which shall pass as a method of remembering him. The papacy is well adapted to meet the wants of all these. It is prepared for two classes of mankind, embracing nearly the whole world,—those who would be saved by their merits, and those who would be saved in their sins. Here is the secret of its power.” {GC88 572.2}

Wellness: For Health’s Sake Shelem Flemons, a doctor of biblical wellness, says that you can reverse osteoarthritis and ease the trouble in your joints. Joints, which allow mobility, are essential to body movements, including sitting and standing. Such mobility is hindered in cases of osteoarthritis. What basically has happened is that calcium has gotten caught between the bones in the joints and then irritates all movements of the joint.

Because of a diet of too much animal protein, which is concentrated protein, too much acid has gotten into the bloodstream. Thus, the body must quickly alkalinize the blood. The quickest way for it to do this is to pull calcium from the bones. Hence, the calcium gets lodged between the bones in the joints and causes inflammation.

The answer is in getting rid of the inflammation and aiding the body in reversing the bloodstream from a state of acidity to alkalinity. It is all in the diet and lifestyle. Adopt a total plant-based diet and healthy lifestyle. But first, feast on juices. You will begin to see a difference, says Pastor Flemons, in only about two or three days.
