It is seemingly impossible to unify or unite opinions and beliefs of people regarding almost every area of life. There are apparent evidences to prove this kind of disunity. Divisions, sectarianism, warring factions, are pervasive all over the planet. The cause:
(James 3:16, 15) “For where envying and strife is, there is confusion and every evil work.
This wisdom descendeth not from above, but is earthly, sensual, devilish.”
Divisions and disagreements among people are instruments of the devil, but there seems to be something that is common to almost every group that disagrees with each other. Their most — and least common denominators — are fraud and deceit. The paradox is, while they disagree on so many things, they seem to connive when it comes to cheating and deceiving people. The reason:
(Revelation 12:9) “And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.”
While creating factions and divisions, satan, in his cunning scheme, injects deceit, hatred, fraud, and hypocrisy among his victims. These explain the existence of a global system accepted worldwide as norms and standards in society — norms and standards that do not conform to the “should be” norms and standards of an intelligent and prudent human society.
(I John 5:19) “And we know that we are of God, and the whole world lieth in wickedness.”
For example, fluoride is accepted worldwide as the most common ingredient in toothpastes — on the belief of some respected scientists that it ‘strengthens’ the teeth. Let us look at the facts.
Most frequently asked questions relating to fluoride
1) I heard fluoride is a poison. Is this true?
Yes. Fluoride is an acute toxin with a rating slightly higher than that of lead.According to “Clinical Toxicology of Commercial products,” 5th Edition, 1984, lead is given a toxicity rating of 3 to 4, and Fluoride is rated at 4 (3 = moderately toxic, 4 = very toxic). On December 7, 1992, the new EPA Maximum Contaminant Level (MCL) for lead was set at 0.015 ppm, with a goal of 0.0ppm. The MCL for fluoride is currently set for 4.0ppm – that’s over 350 times the permissable level of lead.Fluoride is also considered toxic waste. It is one of the most bone seeking elements known to mankind. The US Public Health Service has stated that fluoride makes the bones more brittle and the dental enamel more porous.
…Current fluoride intake is equally divided between drinking water (in fluoridated areas), food, other beverages, and dental products, meaning that even if you don’t live in a fluoridated area, fluoride is endangering your health.
…Fluoride can be found in water, toothpaste, mouthwash, Dentist’s treatment, fluoride pills, juice, soft drinks, canned food, commercial fruit and vegetables, Teflon and Tefal coated items (such as frying pans), etc.
…All sides agree to the fact that healthy kidneys can eliminate only about 50% of daily fluoride intake. The rest gets absorbed in calcified tissues, like bones and teeth.The National Academy Of Sciences (NAS) stated in 1977 that, for the average individual, a retention of 2mg/day would result in crippling skeletal fluorosis after 40 years.
5) How does fluoride get into the water?
Most often as a byproduct from the fertilizer, aluminum and other industries, who manage to sell this toxic waste to municipalities nationwide.
…Small children, even if pea-size amount is used, will still absorb the same, more if the child is younger and has less swallowing control skills. Half a tube of toothpaste can kill a child
…Since April 1997 all toothpaste in the US must carry a warning label, advising parents what to do if their child swallows more than the pea-size brushing amount. Wholesale containers carry the poison symbol of skull and crossbones.
What seem to be scientific — the norms and standards of the world — are not so, if we look for the real truth. The Apostle Paul was right when he said that “the wisdom of the wise in this world is nothing”.
(I Corinthians 1:19-20) “For it is written, I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and will bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent. Where is the wise? where is the scribe? where is the disputer of this world? hath not God made foolish the wisdom of this world?”
I have been to many cities of this world; slept in standard and substandard hotels whenever situations called for it. And in almost all of those places, I have smelled and tasted chlorinated water. In the U.S., in Mainland China, Hong Kong, Singapore, Macau, Malaysia, the Middle East, and in almost all states of the United Arab Emirates, my keen sense of smell revealed to me that the water I am using in those places is chlorinated water. It seems to be an accepted standard worldwide. Let us look at the facts.
Natural organic substances such as fruits, vegetables, and soy products can form dangerous cancer causing compounds when combined with chlorinated water
JUST SAY “NO! NO! NO!” TO CHLORINE!!!
Some of nature’s most valuable and essential anti-cancer and anti-disease phytochemical nutrients, which are commonly found in food, have been discovered to form deadly cancer causing substances when consumed or combined with chlorinated tap water. This discovery includes familiar foods including soy, fruits, vegetables, tea, many health products, and some prescriptions.
… MX is 170 times more deadly than other known toxic by-products of chlorination, and was shown in laboratory studies to damage the thyroid gland as well as cause cancerous tumors.
There is nothing wrong with the organic substances themselves, it is chlorine that is at fault for turning them into the deadly THM and MX cancer cocktail. The reality is that the organic substances have been shown to be highly beneficial combined with pure drinking water.
It is certain that the fresh plant foods we eat similarly react with the chlorinated tap water we drink with our meals, creating toxins. This means that fresh fruits and vegetables, green salads, green tea, black tea, herb teas, soy products, vitamins and various health supplements, and even some pharmaceutical drugs all can be implicated in combination with chlorinated water.
…This message is of utmost importance to the general public, because chlorine will one day, in the near future, be exposed as a major cause and contributor to cancer and degenerative disease. Chlorine will also be found to be responsible for damaging the body’s immune and hormonal systems by mutating the food-based plant estrogens and phytochemicals that support those systems. A healthy immune system should be your first and best line of defense against disease.
What can you do?
Eliminate or reduce all chlorine wherever possible. Don’t drink chlorinated tap water, don’t bathe in it, don’t wash your clothes in it. Get it out of your life! The bottom line is that the real culprit is chlorine, not the substances with which it reacts. Filters are available for faucets and shower heads. Many people have larger filter systems installed right on the water line entering their house. Chlorine is everywhere…the ice tea you order at a restaurant was probably made with chlorinated water, your salad leaves may have been washed with chlorinated water…it goes on an on.
MSG or monosodium glutamate is a very popular food additive especially among Asians and also throughout the Western world. Respected chefs in five star hotels and restaurants all over the world use this substance. Let us look at the facts:
MSG or Monosodium Glutamate
Understanding brain damage and endocrine disorders caused by MSG
MSG is a neurotoxin, potentially toxic to everyone — potentially toxic even to those people who do not respond with adverse reactions such as migraine headache, asthma, nausea and vomiting, fatigue, disorientation, and depression. We know that MSG kills brain cells in laboratory animals. We know this from studies wherein MSG was given in food and from studies were MSG was given in drinking water. We know that MSG causes macular degeneration (retinal degeneration). We know that in one well done 2002 study (Ohguro, H., Katsushima, H., Maruyama, I., Maeda, T., Yanagihashi, S. Metoki, T., Nakazawa, M. A high dietary intake of sodium glutamate as flavoring (Ajinomoto) causes gross changes in retinal morphology and function. Experimental Eye Research 75:(3),2002.) no retinal damage was observed when MSG was fed to laboratory animals for a short period of time (a month), but that as time during which MSG was fed to those animals increased to 3 months and 6 months, there was observable damage. (We must, therefore, postulate that damage done by repeated exposure to MSG is cumulative.) We know that learning disabilities and endocrine disorders such as gross obesity and reproductive disorders often follow the death of brain cells in animals. We also know that very young children (whose blood-brain barriers may not be fully developed) and the elderly are most at risk from the toxic effects of MSG.
God, in His irrefutable wisdom, had prepared the best food (raw and simple) for us that are found in nature, but our perverted taste buds do not appreciate them. Instead we have loved to ingest poisonous substances that now plague almost all humanity with different ailments and diseases. The ‘stupid’ of this world have even blamed the Almighty God for these miseries in human society to the extent of filing criminal charges against God by no less than two groups of deceived intelligent people.

What is sodium nitrate? It seems like lots of meats contain it. Is it in any way harmful?
Sodium nitrate (NaNO3) and its close relative sodium nitrite (NaNO2) are preservatives that you find in lots of processed meats. Stuff like salami, hot dogs, pepperoni, bologna, ham, bacon and SPAM all normally contain sodium nitrate as one of the ingredients. Fresh meats generally do not contain any added chemicals, so the question is, “Why is sodium nitrate added to all of these processed meats?”
There are two reasons for adding these chemicals to processed meats:
They preserve the color of the meat (meaning that it looks pink like SPAM rather than gray like cooked hamburger). You have probably noticed that nearly all meats that contain sodium nitrate or sodium nitrite remain pink or red even though they are cooked during processing.
These chemicals inhibit botulism to some degree.
The jury is out on how harmful these substances are. Sodium nitrite reacts with stomach acid and other chemicals in the stomach to produce nitrosamines, which have been shown to cause cancer in animals when consumed in large quantities.
This article may not be a delicious side dish for others, but I hope that this will prove my point that world standards and norms are utterly substandards and abnormal for anyone who really knows the truth.
(Romans 12:2) “And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.”
The world is now a very hostile place to live in, but those of Godly advices and knowledge can keep us safe from the standards of this world.
(Job 9: 24) “The earth is given into the hand of the wicked: he covereth the faces of the judges thereof; if not, where, and who is he?”
I invite you to continue traveling with me in the avenues of life and discover the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth.
So help us God.
