Can We Be Gods?

Many religions claim that mankind was gods but they either forgot their deity or regressed into animals.  If we forgot we were gods, how smart of a god were we in the first place?  Did we contract Godzheimer’s disease or something?  If man is a god, how come some still battle with smoking, drinking, weight control, and other human vices?  If we “gods” were supposed to be so powerful, how did we become vulnerable to hardships, disease, death, and bleed red blood like humans do?  Why would such powerful beings regress into animals?  Those who claim they forgot they were gods should immediately overcome each one of these human problems once they “remember” they are gods.  It’s like riding a bike, if you wreck, you can’t claim you forgot how to ride a bike, unless of course, you never knew how to ride a bike (i.e. you were never a god).  I know the word-faith teachers misquote the Scripture where Jesus said that the Pharisees were gods.  That word “gods” was not referring to deity, but positions of authority in government.  They had power like a god when determining what happened in people’s lives.  The word actually means magistrates or judges.

False religions create a god or gods that fit in with their own beliefs and react just the same as they do.  America is filled with such gods.  I’m sure you’ve heard people say, “My god would do this,” or “If I were God I wouldn’t do that.”  That is basically saying that the God of the Bible doesn’t know what He’s doing, so they create what they think is a better god who will agree with them and do exactly as they do or as they want.  And it’s usually to make their life easier and more convenient, unless it’s a sadistic god.  Gods are supposed to be benevolent, all-knowing, and all-powerful, but the gods of the religions of the world are just as fallible and subject to their passions and weaknesses as man.  That’s very convenient for man to find fault in even his own image of a supreme being, because it makes it possible for man himself to qualify for god status.  In those religions gods don’t have to be perfect, holy, have self-control, or love, like the God of the Bible, thus it makes it much easier for man to become a god.  They believe the delusion that gods are imperfect (like the Greek gods) just so they can justify their own lusts and sins against the Only True and Righteous God – YHWH/Jesus.  That perfection thing with the God of the Bible throws a kink in their plans because no man can be perfect and they know it.  And if they have to be holy and righteous as the God of the Bible, then that means there is no sin in heaven – they can’t have sex, or gorge on food, or fulfill the lusts of their flesh for eternity.  So, like an ostrich, they bury their head in the sand, bowing to a false god, and will be deceived throughout eternity and living in hell.

Man has never been nor ever will be a god.  Each person is a new soul.  There is no such thing as reincarnation (Heb. 9:27), nor are there any pre-existent souls (John 3:5; 1 Cor. 15:46) – Jesus was the only pre-existent one because He was/is God in the flesh (John 5:18; 8:23-24; 1 Tim. 3:16) and is the ONLY One who can claim to be equal with God (Phil. 2:6). So the God of the Bible settles it, there are no other gods before or after Him (Isaiah 43:10-11; 45:5, 6, 14, 18, 21, 22).  Biblical Christianity is exclusive not ecumenical, because the end of Isaiah 48:11 says, “And I will not give My glory to another.”  (Another proof that Jesus is God because Jesus said He was glorified with the Father before the world was – John 17:5.)  Any other god outside of the Triune Godhead of the Bible is a false god.  That includes Mary the mother of Jesus’ human body, Joseph Smith, the Watchtower, Xenu, L. Ron Hubbard, Jim Jones, Kenneth Copeland, Benny Hinn, Ancient Greek and Roman gods, Buddha, Allah, Mohammed, any Eastern gurus, Dr. Oz, Oprah, Mother Teresa, Ghandi, Eckart Tolle, and etc. 

So, whether you agree or not, that's true Biblical Christianity's stance on mankind becoming gods.  I'm just presenting the facts, folks.

Positive effects of taking herbal supplements, eating organic, non-GMO, non-soy, and no foods containing "natural flavors" or general "spices" and definitely no restaurant foods or processed foods:
First of all I can breathe easier.  Secondly my moods have improved other than the usual female mood swings.  Thirdly, I can think and speak more clearly.  (Soy affects your cognitive abilities including speech.) But for those who are number freaks, here's my numbers:
Blood Sugar (A1C1) from 12.6% to 10.2%
Triglycerides from 799 to 391
Cholesterol from 256 to 219
HDL from 27 to 35
Vitamin D from 21.3 to 40.5
TSH from 1.730 to 1.950
LDL Direct 53 to (calculated) 106 (should be under 100, but I mostly fry my ground beef and sausages, so I may have to start baking the beef again.)

Adverse effects of soy, GMOs, and MSG on my body

These are personal journal entries I wrote once I began changing my diet from inorganic to organic.  I primarily focus on unfermented soy, because I had not completely learned the adverse effects of GMOs until recently.  It is my absolute belief that unfermented soy and GMOs as well as products labeled “natural flavors” have caused many if not all of my medical problems.

Disclaimer:  These are personal observations and my own personal food intolerances, which may or may not be established as fact according to some circles.  I encourage you to do the research yourself.  Get both sides of the story.

November 2012

            Finally after years of preaching from my oldest sister and after experiencing shortness of breath and light-headedness, as well as a disturbing report on my A1C1 and vitamin D levels, I decided to eliminate soy from my diet.  I made the connection to my adversity to soy by drinking two things in one day that contained soy lecithin.  The first drink was one of those “healthy” green foods but shortly afterwards I experienced shortness of breath, bloating, & light-headedness.  I laid down and the symptoms subsided.  Later on I fixed a cup of coffee and used non-dairy creamer that had soy lecithin in it, the only common ingredient.  I experienced the same symptoms as with the green food drink.  So, I had to make a decision, either I live uncomfortably but have fun eating all those tasty over processed, ready-made foods, or I find equivalents without soy or make my own tasty treats.

            I embarked on my own quest for knowledge about soy, and to my horror the very things this research said soy caused, I was experiencing.  A major problem I was having was a Vitamin D deficiency.  Now, granted, I don’t go outside a lot, but I was drinking approximately a gallon of whole milk a day (1% and 2% caused me to have shortness of breath).  There should have not been such a deficiency (21.3%).  According to medical standards I should have had at least a 30% level or higher.  However, further independent research (www.mercola.com) says that we should be at 60% or higher.

            The research at www.westonaprice.org states that soy causes our bodies to need more Vitamin D, because it blocks the absorption of necessary vitamins and minerals, thus causing a deficiency in not only Vitamin D but also the needed minerals of calcium, iron, & zinc among other necessary vitamins.  A lack of those two nutrients can cause rickets and osteoporoses.  Although my doctor prescribed Vitamin D2, research shows that is not as effective, because it’s synthetic, and causes side effects that D3 doesn’t.  Vitamin D3 is the natural and better antidote to that deficiency.  I’ve noticed that I’m no longer craving as much milk since I’ve taken Vitamin D3 and cut out soy.  That change was noticed in less than a month after I began this new life habit.

            Another thing I noticed after a few weeks, was I wasn’t getting as bloated.  So, I tried an experiment.  I ate a can of soup with soy and almost immediately I was bloated and kept belching then had the other symptoms shortly thereafter.  There was a case against the soy industry by prisoners who were given soy in place of meat and they complained of a variety of gastrointestinal disorders, so they filed a suit against the soy industry.  If I was allowed to join that lawsuit, I would because by the evidence of my own experience and research of others, soy has ruined my health and prevented me from having a family.

            My oldest sister stated that I was given infant formula that contained soy (I obviously can’t remember that).  According to the research on Dr. Weston A Price’s website, soy effects the sexual development of children.  Often times the girls develop prematurely and boys’ development is delayed.  However, it’s not always that way.  Soy estrogen (isoflavones) can prevent ovulation, which is what happens to women suffering from Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS), which I suffer with.  PCOS can lead to diabetes, liver disease, and heart disease.  Because soy foods have Trypsin inhibitors it also affects pancreatic function, which most everyone knows is where insulin is produced.  Poor pancreatic function can lead to diabetes, which I also have.

            In my systems biology class, I learned how each one of our systems are interconnected an interdependent upon one another.  I never dreamed that problems with my reproductive system would affect my digestive and circulatory systems, but my PCOS caused my cells to not absorb insulin, thus throwing my digestive system off and it snowballed.  But it is my personal belief that had I not been fed soy as a child, I would not have been made infertile or suffered from diabetes and its complications.  My brother is the only other one affected by diabetes; but if it’s hereditary why wouldn’t our other four siblings have it because both our parents have suffered with it? 

December 2, 2012

            I am almost completely off soy other than my “experiments.”  I had to stop eating Kellogg's Corn Flakes because not only GMO corn is in it, but also it has traces of soy as it says it may contain on the label.

            On Friday, I went to Wal-Mart and purchased some cream filled donuts that had soy.  After I ate them I experienced bloating and painful gas.  I finished them yesterday and also ate some bread that has soy in it and I am becoming depressed, irritable, and easily aggravated by the smallest things.  I hadn’t been that way in a while.  Soy is linked to causing behavioral problems such as those.  I am 100% convinced that soy is killing people and starving my body of necessary nutrients.

December 7, 2012

            I have been snacking on Kraft Caramels and guess what I found out?  They have soy in them.  I couldn’t figure out why I had trouble breathing and had bloating and gas.  I didn’t know they put soy in candy.

December 26, 2012

            Something strange occurred tonight (it’s 3:00 am after Christmas Day).  I was awakened by sharp chest and back pains, trouble breathing, bloating and gas with acid reflux.  I had my Christmas dinner late.  It consisted of Turkey breast, cornbread dressing, and heavenly hash (ambrosia salad).  None of which contained soy, but they may have contained GMO ingredients.  Of course, when they list “natural flavor” it usually means MSG, which I think can come from soy, but I have to research that further.  The turkey had that listed as an ingredient, and MSG is known to cause those symptoms.

December 28, 2012

            I’ve discovered that I am becoming sensitive to MSG (i.e. natural flavor), as well as soy.  The MSG causes chest pains, labored breathing, and dizziness.  I had a turkey breast from Aldi that had natural flavors in it.  I also had mixed fruit with natural flavor in it and it’s a product of China, so I think everyone is out to kill us.  But I cannot afford to waste food, so I have to risk my health and finish the food.  I had the same symptoms at Thanksgiving because I bought the same turkey breast and fruit then.

December 30, 2012

            My diet is becoming more and more limited.  All the inexpensive foods have either soy or natural flavors, or they have been genetically altered to withstand more pesticides, which is unhealthy for us.  Sandy said the hybrids and dwarfs are not dangerous like GMOs.  So, now all I need is a house with a fertile yard to grow my garden.  I’ll also need a greenhouse for the “tropical plants” I want and my coffee, orange, and blueberry I already have.

January 1, 2013

I’m now experiencing shortness of breath after drinking Wal-Mart’s brand of whole milk.  They say it’s hormone free but they don’t say what the cows are fed.  Sandy said they are fed grains, which could include soy (almost all soy is GMO).  I guess I’m going to have to shop at Healthy Alternative permanently.

Update:  Walmart's Great Value elbow macaroni has caused me to suffer with breathing problems and fluid on my lungs.  More than likely it's made with GMO grain.

January 2, 2013

            I’ve had some lemonade made with Wal-Mart’s Great Value 100% Real Lemon Juice and now I’m experiencing breathing problems.  I don’t believe it’s the lemons, per se, but the GMOs & pesticides I am allergic to.

            Sandy looked up the ALCAT test at www.alcat.com that is a test for food allergies and sensitivities, but it is expensive.  I am going to call to find a doctor here who will do it.

January 6, 2013

            I ate some Chobani Mango Yogurt and guess what?  It has natural flavor in it and I’m having trouble breathing.  Why can’t companies leave things alone?  Why do they have to add “natural flavor” when organic fruit, organic yogurt and organic sugar is all it needs?  Of course the fruit may have been GMO, but I’m not sure of that. Update: Chobani has been found to feed their milk cows GMO grains.

January 10, 2013

            I drank 2 cups of Meijer Brand French Roast coffee and I’m having major trouble breathing.  I used evaporated milk as cream, but that never bothers me.  This “suffocation” started about 10:30 or 11 am and has continued until now, 2:30 pm.  It has to be the pesticides or the coffee is processed near a soy plant or is GMO.  I had trouble with Newman’s Own Vanilla Organic Coffee, too.  They use natural flavor in their coffee, but who’s to say that the vanilla beans were not gotten from a GMO farm?  I may have to give coffee up altogether.

January 12, 2013

Genevieve and I had Broccoli cuts from Season’s Choice (Aldi sells it) but organic meat and cauliflower.  Then we ate watermelon that was pre-cut from Meijer.  It wasn’t organic but I am having difficulty breathing and it feels like fluid is filling my lungs.  Phlegm does come up when I clear my throat.  It has to be the pesticides. 

In order to save my life I can eat nothing that is not organic and what I can grow myself.  Lord, let me just die; I can’t eat anything anymore.  What am I going to do at the end of the month?  I have maybe $13.00 available to me for the rest of the month.

     I have been able to wean myself off of nearly everything GMO except milk and evaporated milk, which is why raw milk should be allowed to be purchased.  I recently had some Reiters 2% milk and had trouble breathing and was bloated.  But I am not consuming soy and am very careful with anything simply marked “natural flavor” or “spices.”  I purchase everything organic that I possibly can and support local farmers with my business.  But since changing my diet I have lost some weight and inches around my waist.  I have to portion out my food and it’s working.  I’m not regularly exercising, per se, I’m just no longer eating soy, GMOs and natural flavors.  So, eat organic, and stop eating soy and GMOs; you’ll lose weight

What do people mean by a good, romantic man?  Well let’s define good first.  According to the American Heritage Dictionary of the English Language Third Edition © 1992 there are several meanings but I will shorten it to those that apply to my subject:

Good2a. Having the qualities that are desirable or distinguishing in a particular thing; 3a. Not spoiled or ruined; b. In excellent condition; sound; 4a. Superior to the average; satisfactory; 5a. Of high quality; b. Discriminating; 6. Worthy of respect, honorable; 7. Attractive; handsome; 9. Competent; skilled; 11a. Reliable; sure; b. Valid or true; c. Genuine; real; 17a. Of moral excellence; upright; b. Benevolent; kind; c. Loyal staunch; 18a. Well-behaved; obedient; b. Socially correct; proper.

I’ve read some blogs concerning romantic men and one of the most romantic men I’ve seen is Hugh Jackman.  Not only did he play the quintessential romantic in Kate & Leopold but also in real life he has been loyal and loving to his wife for over 18 years.  He has been quoted as saying that when he first met her on the set of Correlli, he knew then she was the one.  For those of us who dream of having that happen to us, that brings tears to our eyes and yes even envy in our hearts.  We ask ourselves, “Why can’t I find a handsome hunk like that who would say that about me?”  Well, that’s a question that still is unanswered in my own life. 

However, by the horrible things I’ve read about Hugh’s wife’s looks, my theory is that there aren’t many romantics left, or they’re too afraid to date women who have flaws or may not look like Angelina Jolie because of receiving that kind of ridicule from their peers.  It’s very hard to find a man who is not superficial, and especially a gorgeous man like Hugh.  I think it’s wonderful that he would actually marry a woman he considers attractive (which is all that matters) and even brag on her, flying in the face of the superficial public’s expectations of him, and not let Hollywood destroy his marriage to her.  I see nothing wrong with Deb; I think she’s pretty even if she picks up a few pounds from time to time like the rest of us do.  She can always lose it.  As for her clothing choices, she can wear what she wants and feels comfortable in.  However, the love between those two is more than admirable, it’s down right romantic and amazing. 

According to the American Heritage Dictionary of the English Language Third Edition © 1992 the definition for romance again has several different ones but those that apply here are as follows:

Romance1a. A love affair; b. Ardent emotional attachment or involvement between people, especially that characterized by a high level of purity and devotion; love;

I have been told that Hollywood deems only the extraordinarily beautiful people worthy of love and the rest of us unlovable.  Unfortunately, the public has believed that con, and viciously attacks those they think the celebrities shouldn’t be with.  A celebrity’s personal life is just that – personal, not to be governed by the public or Hollywood.  Maybe that’s one reason why the Jackmans moved back to Australia.  But I’d love to see a movie made about their love story.  I think we could learn a lot from it.  Or maybe a movie that portrays a middle-aged plain looking or flawed woman (like me) who falls for her boss and eventually when he sees her true inner beauty he falls for her.  (I’ve started a story like that, but it’s long from finished.)  But I’d like to see Hollywood be brave enough to cast a truly plain or flawed looking woman (not just a beautiful woman in glasses) opposite of someone as good looking as Hugh Jackman, to show the world that love is much more than the surface.  I have to admit, that in Kate & Leopold, I felt sorry for the woman Leopold was planning to marry, Miss Tree, because he was visibly disappointed in her appearance and I felt her pain when he chose Kate, but that of course happened because Hollywood is superficial.  In my opinion, the deepest depths of true love can’t even be touched by those who dwell only on the superficial, and that’s very sad.

Some may think I’m being superficial by expecting a Hugh Jackman type to sweep me off my feet.  Yes, I am attracted to men like him, but what is more alluring than his muscular body and handsome face is his loyalty, love, and commitment to his wife and marriage.  However, if I could find a “good” man and he sweeps me off my feet by his charm, sophistication, intelligence, and wit, I’d marry him. 

But, what is my definition of a good man?  In Kate & Leopold, Leopold tells Kate’s brother Charlie that a woman responds to sincerity and that a man should make his intentions known, but aim to please her not vex (annoy, irritate, bring distress to) her.  Unfortunately, I’ve been vexed a lot by men who pressured me for sex and kept me the closet girlfriend refusing to introduce me to their families or were too ignorant to hold an intelligent conversation.  I do prefer someone with some culture and intelligence.  A relationship can go sour fast if you are not able to communicate or share things in common.  So, a good man to me, is someone who appreciates and values me as a human being and would never be ashamed of me or embarrassed because I don’t look perfect.  A good man is sincere, loyal, protective, respectable, patient, honorable, well-groomed, courteous, mannerly, kind, generous, reliable, responsible, honest, faithful, opens the door for a lady, shows interest in what I like, and I’m sure you get the picture.  The  character of Leopold was all that and more.  Now, I’m not expecting perfect, but someone who would treat me as he would want to be treated himself.  I respond positively to those who don’t treat me as a piece of meat, or as if I don’t have any feelings.  And I would endeavor to treat him the same way.

There is another kind of romantic man for some women.  The romance of the “bad boy” draws many women because those men are usually rebels.  They don’t follow the rules, they make them.  Many of the men in power are those kind of men.  A part of me wants a man that will be decisive and “take command” of a situation in order to protect his family.  Men who allow themselves to be walked on or their families to be taken advantage of are a turn off to some women; they’re seen as a coward and that brings a lot of insecurity to a woman.  A “good” quality a “bad boy” has is that they are usually protective and decisive.  But one problem with the “bad boys” is that they want it their way or no way; compromise is very seldom in their vocabulary.  Some become abusive and controlling, so I’d rather take my chances on a good guy.  Are there any Leopold’s out there?
