"Are Christians Brainwashed?"

When you fall into bed at night, are you out like a light, dead to the world, sleeping like a log?

Nope. None of the above. Turns out we are busy 'taking out the trash' while we sleep.

A new study claims to have discovered the true reason we need to catch those Zzzzz: To clean our brains. Apparently, sleep hoses the garbage out of the brain.

Maiken Nedergaard, who led the study, says this discovery might explain why sleep is crucial for all living organisms.

"The cerebral spinal fluid flushes the brain's waste products into what is called the 'glymphatic system' which carries it down through the body and ultimately to the liver where it is broken down," writes Ian Sample of S & T Science.

Sort of like a 'biological dishwasher'.

According to Kurzweil News, "This revelation could transform scientists' understanding of the biological purpose of sleep and point to new ways to treat neurological disorders."

Seems the trash in our brains include proteins that cause Alzheimer's and dementia which need to be washed away.

"Truly, we are fearfully and wonderfully made," as Psalm 139:4 says.

But while all humans may be 'brain-washed' biologically speaking during sleep, the Bible promises those who read it in faith with an entire 'life-style lift', spiritually speaking.

"Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ also loved the church and gave Himself for her, that He might sanctify and cleanse here with the washing of the water by the Word, that He might present her to Himself a glorious church, not having spot or wrinkle or any such thing, but that she should be holy and without blemish." Ephesians 5: 25-27 (emphasis added).

In both the New and Old Testament (see Revelation 19:7-9; Hosea 2:29, 20) God's people are viewed as the Lord's betrothed bride.

Revelation 19:8 says, "And to her it was granted to be arrayed in fine linen, clean and bright, for the fine linen is the righteous acts of the saints."

In other words, the bride of Christ wears a garment that signifies faithful obedience to God; we must be doers of the Word and not hearers only because:

Reading + Doing = a glorious church - spot or wrinkle

In need of a makeover? Read the Bible.

A wise man once said: "While you do not need to change your lifestyle before you come to Christ, once you do come to Christ, your lifestyle should show tangible changes. If it does not, then one could doubt whether Christ has really come into your life. The way you live should reflect what you believe." -- Pastor Greg Laurie

"Who's Watching You Thru Your Webcam?"

According to Theresa Payton, former White House Chief Information Officer, the Federal government may have its eye on you.

That's right, Uncle Sam may actually be watching you right now and you'd never even know it.


Apparently, law enforcement, the FBI, and other government officials are able to activate our web cams remotely without the little red light coming on.

Oh, and your speakers? Let's just say don't say anything you don't want broadcast (literally) into the ears of you-know-who.

Ms. Payton says, "...having this access is really a double-edged sword. You want the law enforcement, FBI, and others, to have all the tools in their toolkit to stop an attack. But on the other side, you could be looking at compromising the privacy of Americans."

(ya think?)

To avoid being watched or recorded against your will, Payton advises we:

  • turn off our connection
  • keep computers and other devices (smart phones!) out of personal spaces (bedrooms and bathrooms!)
  • place masking tape over web cam and speakers to block the video and muffle the audio
Marcus Thomas, a former Assistant Director of the FBI, said, 
The FBI has been able to covertly activate a computer's camera without triggering the indicator light, for several years, and has used that technique mainly in terrorism cases or the most serious criminal investigations."


Anyone remember all those documents leaked by Edward Snowden that revealed the NSA was collecting data on virtually every American? Just sayin'...

watch this FoxNews story

Fukushima: Another "Glowing" Report

Think you've heard the last of Fukushima?

Think again.

David Suzuki, an award-winning scientist, warns that in a worst-case-scenario, the entire U.S. West Coast might need to be evacuated if the fuel rods in reactor #4 melt down.

Speaking at the University of Alberta, Suzuki said:
"Fukushima is the most terrifying situation I can imagine. You ask, 'what can we do?' First of all you have a government (Japan?) that is in total collusion with Tepco (Japanese power company), they're lying through their teeth.
"The fourth one (reactor) has been so badly damaged that the fear is if there's another quake of a 7 or above that building will go, and then all hell breaks loose.
"And the probability of a 7 or above quake in the next 3 years is over 95%."

Why aren't we hearing this on the MSM?

Well, ABC News finally did something on it and here's the link. Be sure to watch it.

A wise man once said: "Courage consists in equality to the problem before us." Ralph Waldo Emerson

"And there will be great earthquakes in various places...and on the earth distress of nations, with perplexity, the sea and waves roaring, men's hearts failing them from fear and the expectation of those things which are coming on the earth, for the powers of the heavens will be shaken.
"Then they will see the Son of Man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. Now when these things begin to happen, look up and lift up your heads, because your redemption draws near."      Luke 21:11, 25-28 (emphasis added)

"1000 Economists Agree : U.S. Needs to Wake Up or Crash"

Top economists from every political persuasion are appealing for your help:

Wake up and smell the coffee, America!

Boston University Economics Professor Laurence Kotlikoff is sounding the alarm, along with virtually the entire economics community (including 15 Nobel Prize winners!)

Their goal?

Get Congress to pass the Inform Act in an attempt to wake up the nation to our dire financial situation.

"The country is in worse fiscal shape by many miles than Detroit. So, the country is essentially bankrupt," say Dr. Kotlikoff, who believes, "the country needs to do honest accounting" and stop "disguising the true problem."

Estimating our long-term debt and liabilities at more than $200 trillion, Dr. Kotlikoff compares the Inform Act to:
"The economist profession sending the equivalent of the letter Einstein sent to Roosevelt warning of the nuclear threat from Germany coming up with the nuclear bomb. Never in the history of this country have this many top economists from all political persuasions endorsed a piece of legislation like this."

Because never in the history of this country have the people been more deceived in terms of our true financial condition.

"The government is printing mountains of money to pay its bills," says Kotlikoff. "Eventually...this is going to crash."

Dr. Kotlikoff on Greg Hunter's USA Watchdog

Though the Scriptures don't spell it out, there are enough to indicate some major financial headwinds:

"Look here, you rich people, weep and groan with anguish because of all the terrible troubles ahead of you. Your wealth is rotting away and your fine clothes are moth-eaten rags. Your gold and silver have become worthless. The very wealth you were counting on will eat away your flesh in hell. This treasure you have accumulated will stand as evidence against you in the last days." -- James 5

A wise man once said: "While the 'experts' want us to believe that all is well (or soon will be), nothing could be further from the truth. The world wide financial crisis of 2008 and 2009 was just a sneak preview of what is to come." -- David Wiedemer, PhD
