How to Postpone Your Funeral

A time when we have more doctors, hospitals, medicines; more medical knowledge of the care, treatment, and cure of disease; more pills, capsules, vitamins, etc.; yet seldom has there been a time when more sickness and general ill health has plagued the human family.  Learn More


Natural Remedies

Most diseases are caused by a violation of nature's laws. By choosing poor eating, drinking, working, and lifestyle habits, we violate the principles of health—and sickness is the result. However, nature itself is equipped with the healing properties that can remedy many illnesses, especially those caused by a less-than-perfect diet. Of course, that doesn't mean we should continue breaking the laws of good health. Following the eight general principles of health will go a long way to preventing and curing disease.  Learn More


How to Stop Smoking Successfully

"Tobacco is a poison of the most deceitful and malignant kind, having an exciting, then a paralyzing influence upon the nerves of the body. It is all the more dangerous because its effects upon the system are so slow, and at first scarcely perceivable. Multitudes have fallen victims to its poisonous influence." (CH 84).

The Truth About Alcohol

"According to Zig Ziglar, authorities know that approximately one in sixteen people who ever take a social drink will become an alcoholic!"


"Would you even step one foot on an airplane if you knew there was a one in 16 chance that it would crash and end your life? (Actually, the odds for a commercial airliner crashing are closer to one in a million—but even with those odds some people will not fly. Yet many of these same people will take a drink!)"

"Consider this other well-known fact: In the next 24 hours, alcohol will be responsible for nearly half of all…

  • ... the homicides.
  • …the people who will die on the highway.
  • …the people who will be admitted to the hospital.
  • …the people who will be incarcerated in jail or prison.
  • …the people who will be arrested for domestic violence.
  • …the people who will be born with birth defects.

In addition, alcohol deserves a mention for being responsible for a quarter of all suicides." The Christian and Alcohol by Doug Batchelor.  Learn More.
