My wife and I have dumped statins. I've read before of a few dangers of statins drugs but recently we both have been increasingly plagued by the side effects - well documented by the way - of statins. Simvastatin is the particular one we tossed. I wish I'd have stopped sooner. There are so many testimonials about the bad things that happened to statins takers they couldn't be posted.
Short term memory loss
Muscle aches and cramps
There are many more that are affecting takers!
Statins include atorvastatin (Lipitor), fluvastatin (Lescol), lovastatin (Altoprev), pitavastatin (Livalo), pravastatin (Pravachol), rosuvastatin (Crestor) and simvastatin (Zocor).

False gospels have deceived and are now deceiving many. We have a duty a commission to speak the truth in love.
A preacher ran across a Roman catholic priest in Louisiana that had a mission. He was trying to raise more money and awareness to help pray a man out of purgatory. He told the Christian minister that they had all of him prayed out excepting for one leg.
One leg?! The preacher said it would have been funny if it weren't so tragic. This is a good example of the tragic results of believing a false gospel. A worldly devilish message of Jesus plus.
Jesus plus circumcision, Jesus plus keeping the sabbath, Jesus plus purgatory, Jesus plus anything.
How blessed we are to have been able to buy the truth and sell it not. That God...
WHY GO TO CHURCH
[by Leon Anderson, " Bulletin Archive 2002"]
Yes that's right why should I go to church when all you hear is how big of a sinner you are and that the only way that you can get right is to stop doing your evil deeds: But who can completiely stop forever?
The preacher spends too much time talking about how much money you should give. "to the Lord". but does the Lord really spend the money? The preacher talks a good gave about "loving everybody". and "forgiving everybody" in order to be loved and forgiven by God, but does he himself really fulfill all these requirements? There are many more impossible demands that the preacher puts before the people to perform before they can be right with God, but I don't do them so...
Two points I will break into two posts. Just some things that have been heavy on my heart the past couple of days. The greatest deception surrounding the most scandalous act of love in the history of mankind. His own expected wrath and justification and a powerful King: a Lion that would destroy their enemies. They never expected a Lamb, nor that the greatest act of disarming the enemy would come by way of love.
Are we expecting the same?
Proverbs 11: 23 says "The desire of the righteous is only good: but the expectation of the wicked is wrath."
Pondering on this proverb for days I have come to wonder if we have it backwards. God's righteous judgement was satisfied NOT by the wrath poured out on the Son, or the physical pain the Son...
Since there is a lot of discussion about Apostles, Prophets, and Teachers, and the rest. Do we really understand what an apostle is, or a prophet, or a teacher, or even an evangelist? Who hold these titles, and who qualify for them. let’s see what God word says about these mention above.
Scripture, 1 Corinthians 12:28 "And God hath set some in the church, first apostles, secondarily prophets, thirdly teachers, after that miracles, then gifts of healings, helps, governments, diversities of tongues”.
God have set in his church, those listed above, so a christian I must acknowledge this.
second he sets an ORDER.
The reason why I started this topic, it's to show us that these positions, or titles are...
In Christ Revolution
The tremendous change which began on the Day of Pentecost from the existence of a gospel centered around Moses’ Law to the Christ-life was revolutionary, 1John 5:12 "He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life."
The age long covenant of works was not readily set aside for these new teachings of Christ in us. But sadder yet is the fact that to this day there still exists an admixture and commingling of law and grace which has definitely hidden the Christ-life from multitudes of believers. It is not to be said here that anyone who has believed on the Lord Jesus Christ is not saved or is not a genuine Christian, for this is never the intent in preaching Christ in His fullness,...
Everybody loves Jesus, right? A man that reached out to a woman scorned. A man that touched the lepers and healed them. A man that wept. A man that held His silence in the face of mockers and scorners. A man of righteous judgement. A man that would never ask us to do the unthinkable. The inconceivable.
Our Christian counselor set before me. Her profession being to help a broken girl sort out the tangled mess inside her head. The biggest mess being: why would I turn to a God that promotes the oppression of women, and promotes abuse and slavery as if a person becomes nothing more than a piece of cattle? Why would I turn to this God that obviously placed my gender at the lowest place out of some sort of punish? I sat baffled as our...
