A Reformed Skeptic

 

I was an artist that could no longer make art, my fingers just wouldn't cooperate. Knuckles on both hands looked like ripe, shiny cherry tomatoes. I lived with stiffness and pain.


Now I can paint, draw, teach art classes, and live a normal life, free of joint pain and stiffness. All I had to do was overcome my skepticism and accept the possibility that there was another way. A better way.

So You Think the FDA Knows or Cares What’s On Labels

What’s a busy mom supposed to do? 

She’s becoming aware that all is not right in the world. She’s connecting the dots between the health of her family and the products she buys and uses. She wants to make more informed choices, but her days are filled to overflowing with all the jobs she is responsible for getting done? She would like to be able to sit down with a cup of coffee and do her own research, find her own answers…

But the baby’s crying.The toddler is feeding his lunch to the dog. The laundry she washed yesterday is still in the washer, because the load she did the day before is still in the dryer. All the hampers are overflowing. And now the teenager is sulking

Labels are created to grab your attention and convince you to choose that box/bottle/product setting on the shelf or pictured in an online ad. Manufacturers are VERY good at covering up anything that would make us not want to buy the product.

Would you choose a product with a label that openly said it has these ingredients?

  • arsenic?

  • hormone disrupters?

  • triclosan?

  • artificial flavorings?

  • diacetyl

  • coal tar?

  • phthalates

  • PFAS?

  • formaldehyd?

  • Mercury?

  • PEGs?

  • aluminum?

  • petroleum byproducts?

  • carcinogens?

  • synthetic fragrance?

  • artificial color?

  • PFAS?


No! You wouldn’t. But if you’re not paying close attention, you probably are.

Manufacturers know this, so they omit those words (and others) instead choosing misleading words to make us THINK we’re buying a clean product. It’s called “greenwashing.” And it is becoming more and more prevalent.

“But that’s why we have the FDA, right?”

I used to think so. But the FDA doesn’t know or care about a product or its label until consumers report damage in large numbers. And then it may take a decade or more before they actually take any action. Many American companies make two versions of their products: one for Americans with the yucky stuff, and one for Europe because the yucky stuff has been banned. Say Whuuut?

SIDENOTE: Have you watched Dopesick? It has strong language and isn’t appropriate for children, but if you can stomach profanity, watch it! It’s the sick saga of how Purdue Pharma was able to hoodwink America into thinking OxyContin was a good thing. The role the FDA played in that fiasco is just one instance of how corrupt and duplicitous big business and big government are. (FYI - the woman that approved the “black box label” is the SAME woman responsible for blocking a specific treatment protocol that practicing physicians were using successfully with their patients during the scourge of 2021 and beyond. Grrrrrr!)

I used to be that busy momma. I made some really bad buying choices when my four children were still at home. It wasn’t until I had grandchildren that I began to take a good look at labels. I began to read and research reasons why my joints hurt, why my skin was sallow, why my hair was dull and lifeless.

A teacher at heart, though no longer in a public school classroom, I now teach what I’ve learned to mommas and grandmoms who want to do better for their families. I moderate a private Facebook group where we learn together.

What Must I Do to Be Saved?

My pastor says that the greatest question ever asked is found in the book of Acts: “Sirs, what must I do to be saved?” Here’s how he answers the question:



The Apostle Paul outlines the answer to the question in his letter to the Romans. Chapter 3 verse 23 says, “For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.”  None of us are in good standing with God. We have broken his Commandments, we have taken his name in vain, we have done things against his precious holiness. We're all guilty and we stand before God that way: Guilty!


If we do not accept the Lord Jesus Christ as our payment for our sins, then we'll have to pay the penalty. Romans 6:23 says, “For the wages of sin is death…” That word, death, means that we will be eternally separated in a place that wasn't even prepared for mankind; a place of torment called Hell. 


In that verse, God says that the wages of our sin is death BUT the gift of God is eternal life, through Jesus Christ Our Lord. I've often thought, “Why would a loving God send his precious son to this earth to die in such an inhumane way?”


The answer is found in Romans 5:8, “For God commendeth his love towards us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.” God loves us so much that his Son willingly “for the joy that was set before him” went to the cross and volunteered to shed his blood on our behalf - the sinless blood of God!


Again, the question, “What must we do to be saved?” is answered in Romans 10:9. “That if Thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in thine heart that God raised him from the dead, thou shall be saved." Then in verse 13, he says, “For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.”


So you see, God didn't make the Plan of Salvation like an Einstein formula. It is as simple as

a.  I accept Christ as my savior. 

b.  I believe on him as my Savior.

c.  I accept him as my Savior.


When we do those things, the Bible says we are saved. So I pray that if you haven't made that commitment that you bow your heart before God and you  pray this simple prayer of salvation. Just say to the Lord,


Dear Lord Jesus, forgive me of my sin. Come into my life and save me. Thank you for dying on the cross in my place.  Now help me from this day forward to live for you. In Jesus name I pray, amen.”
