Are we called to be LIBERAL or CONSERVATIVE Christians?

In the run up to the 2020 USA elections, I became increasingly puzzled by terminologies that started bombarding the internet. The Body of Yahshua was divided into “Conservative” and “Liberal” Christian camps. I tried to search the scriptures to get biblical justification to support these terminologies and failed to find any. What I found, instead, was the opposite. Galatians 3:27-29 says “For as many of you as were baptised into Christ have put on Christ. There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is neither male nor female; for you are all one in Christ Jesus. And if you are Christ’s, then you are Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.”

My understanding of this scripture is that we are to be one in Christ and get our identity from Him, not from our earthly tribes, ethnicities, social statuses, or biological genders. In the same breath, we should not get our identity from the political parties we support, but from Yahshua Himself. We must be careful of entertaining worldly labels that are unbiblical and provide fodder for division. Mark 3:24 and Matthew 12:25 tell us that a kingdom divided against itself cannot stand.

CANCER: Suggestions For Effective Treatment

Why is cancer such a big health problem in our society today? Statistics show that one in three people will be diagnosed with cancer. Throughout my book, Go Natural, I repeatedly point out the exponential exposure to carcinogenic (cancer-causing) modern chemicals. The body is designed to clean, protect, maintain, and heal itself. However, the accumulated effect of the overexposure to toxins, a nutrient-deprived diet, prolonged stress, and other modern evils will cause the body’s overburdened immune system to malfunction and not to detect and neutralise cancer cells. Cancer cells proliferate and start forming a tumour. 

It is been said that everybody has cancer, but that a healthy immune system kills cancer cells every day. Statistics vary, but it could be between 2000 and 12000 cells per day. Thus, if you have been diagnosed with cancer, it means that you have an unhealthy, overburdened immune system that is not coping.

Vaccines, Visas & Visiting The Holy Land

From natural disasters to plagues and pandemics, 2020 will be remembered as one of the most terrible years for mankind. And at this early stage, 2021 does not look much better either – with the world effectively still on pause until a vaccine (which is being touted as the silver bullet for us to return to normal) is administered on a global scale. Though the mainstream media and politicians alike hail the benefits of mass vaccination against COVID-19, detractors (and Christians) look on with bated breath, reticent to swallow the advice of liberal organisations like the W.H.O. and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. 

Conspiracy theories abound, and YouTube is flooded with videos from scientists and arm-chair experts contradicting each other on a daily basis. So what are we to do as believers? Seek wisdom from God, evaluate all we are told in light of scripture, and proceed with decisions prayerfully and patiently. God is not taken by surprise, and COVID is not mightier than the Blood of Jesus. We must remember this when the voices around us resonate louder and louder with undertones of fear, control, manipulation, and despair.

Amir Tsarfati: Sharing God’s Plan for the End Times

A respected authority on Israel, the Middle East and Bible prophecy, Amir Tsarfati has seen his ministry expand globally over the last decade. Amir joined the Israeli army in 1990 and underwent basic training during the first Gulf War. He served almost a year in the IDF Armored Corps, and was later stationed in Jericho. When the peace process began and Jericho was the first city transferred to the Palestinian Authority, Amir, then 21, was appointed as active Deputy Governor of Jericho and the Jordan Valley, also becoming one of Israel’s military negotiators with the Palestinians. Since 2004, Amir has been consultant to various law enforcement agencies and seminars on homeland-security issues. In 2008 he was was the keynote speaker at the Hostage Negotiators Conference on the topic of terrorism. 

Amir speaks Hebrew, Arabic, English and German, and leads his own tour groups in Israel, offering pilgrims a deeper understanding of the unbreakable ties between the loving God of the Bible, His Chosen People and His Land. Ahead of his visit to South Africa this month, we caught up with Amir to discuss a few “hot topics”.
