Description: 

What does it mean to be human? Philosophers, theologians, sociologists and psychologists have attempted to understand the nature of mankind for ages. Their conclusions often contradict each other which lead to confusion rather than clarification. Clearly Man is a very complicated social being. The Bible tells us that man is “fearfully and wonderfully made.”
  • How do we understand our makeup and does it make a difference?
  • What is the meaning of being “created in the image of God?”
  • What causes our natural responses and can we change this behaviour?

Join Ron Matsen from the Executive Briefing Room of the River Lodge, New Zealand as he explores the subject of our “Human Nature” and gives insight into the architecture and accountability of all mankind.

Beginning of Wisdom

 

by

 Dr. Chuck Missler

“The fear of God is the beginning of wisdom.” Proverbs 9:10

But how do we balance the awesome majesty due to the Creator and Ruler of the universe with the gracious family intimacy that is now available to us through the completed work of Christ?

What does His Holiness demand of us, personally?

What are the hazards of failing to render the Almighty His due, while availing ourselves the riches committed to us of the precious promises in His Word?

How do we deal with these paramount issues facing us daily in practical challenges?

Chuck Missler grapples with these wildly misunderstood tensions with down-to-earth frankness and Biblically-based candor.

Description

One of the last instructions given by Jesus to the Church was, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel.” (Mark 16:15)

The fact is most Christians don’t know how to share their faith effectively. Sadly, many of the people they know in the world today are wandering around, lost and without hope, having never heard the wonderful Message of Reconciliation.

How would you answer the question, “What must I do to be saved?”

What are the essential facts, demands and promises of the Gospel?

Why are we told to evangelize?

Join Ron Matsen in the Executive Briefing Room of the River Lodge, New Zealand as he explores the subject of “The Gospel – The Message of Reconciliation” and gives practical insight into how to share the essential doctrines of salvation.

By Kate Kelland LONDON (Reuters) - Potatoes and bread cooked at high temperatures for a long time could increase the risk of cancer in people who eat them regularly, British government scientists said on Monday. The UK Food Standards Agency (FSA) said a substance called acrylamide, produced when starchy foods are roasted, fried or grilled for too long at high temperatures, has been found in animal studies to increase the risk of cancer. In a statement that drew criticism from some independent experts, the FSA said that, to reduce the danger, consumers should cook these foods at lower temperatures and eat them when they are cooked to a golden color rather than browned.

Chief Executive Ken Frazier said that Keytruda in combination therapy could also be cheaper than some rival approaches -- an increasingly important consideration in an era of heightened controversy about high drug prices. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is due to decide by May 10 whether to approve a combination of the immune system-boosting drug with chemotherapy as an initial therapy for advanced lung cancer, the largest cancer market.

By Ronnie Cohen (Reuters Health) - The number of older Americans treated for prostate cancer plummeted 42 percent since health officials began questioning the benefits of screening tests, a new study shows. The finding points to the success of efforts to curtail the use of controversial prostate-specific antigen, or PSA, screening tests, said lead author Dr. Tudor Borza. At the same time, his team found, doctors still face challenges trying to convince men diagnosed with early-stage prostate cancer to watch and wait before undergoing surgery or other invasive treatment, Borza said.

(Reuters) - Europe's leading association of oncologists has thrown its weight behind cheaper copycat versions of biotech cancer drugs that have lost patent protection, saying they are effective and affordable. Off-patent chemical medicines have for decades been copied with precision and sold as cheap generic versions, but drug regulators have only over recent years embraced copycat versions of complex biological drugs, known as biosimilars. "Biosimilars are must-have weaponry in financially sustaining healthcare systems on a global scale as well as significantly improving outcomes for an increasing number of patients throughout Europe and the rest of the world," ESMO President Professor Fortunato Ciardiello said in a statement.

New research suggests that coffee may have a protective effect against inflammation and cardiovascular disease as we age, possibly even helping to increase life expectancy.

The researchers compared blood taken from both groups to see which genes tended to be more highly activated in older people, focusing in on two groups of genes whose activity is associated with an inflammatory protein called IL-1-beta.

The H5N8 strain, which is deadly for poultry but has not been found in humans, has spread in Europe and the Middle East since late last year, leading to the slaughter of hundreds of thousands of farmed birds and the confinement of flocks indoors. Uganda's Agriculture, Industry and Fisheries Ministry said in a statement that in-country tests had identified "the highly pathogenic avian influenza (HPAI), that affects both humans and animals and which causes (a) high number of deaths in both species." But the statement did not indentify the strain.

Britons sizzle over chips and toast cancer warningsA government health warning over the potential dangers of toast, roast potatoes and chips -- all traditional staples of the British diet -- had the country's tabloids hitting out Monday. The Food Standards Agency (FSA) said acrylamide -- a chemical substance formed when foods with high starch content are cooked at very high temperatures -- "has the potential to cause cancer in humans". "Health officials say burning starchy foods such as spuds, bread and pizza dough may increase the risks -- despite no study proving the link," it said.

By Kate Kelland LONDON (Reuters) - Potatoes and bread cooked at high temperatures for a long time could increase the risk of cancer in people who eat them regularly, British government scientists said on Monday. The UK Food Standards Agency (FSA) said a substance called acrylamide, produced when starchy foods are roasted, fried or grilled for too long at high temperatures, has been found in animal studies to increase the risk of cancer. In a statement that drew criticism from some independent experts, the FSA said that, to reduce the danger, consumers should cook these foods at lower temperatures and eat them when they are cooked to a golden color rather than browned.

Rachel Carson doc tells the environmentalist's inspiring life storyBefore Rachel Carson became the mother of the modern environmental movement, she was stuck in a job that paid the bills but left her restless. A new documentary revisits Carson's days as an information specialist for the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service in the 1930s and '40s, where at first she filed mundane reports about the agency's conservation work.  It was in that role that Carson learned about DDT — a potent pesticide that farmers sprayed indiscriminately over their crops. Carson exposed the chemical's widespread environmental damage in her groundbreaking 1962 book, Silent Spring.  SEE ALSO: Hawaii's bees are now protected under U.S. Endangered Species Act Her work inspired President John F. Kennedy to launch the first U.S. investigation into the public health risks of pesticides, which later prompted policymakers to create new safeguards for protecting the environment.  The PBS documentary Rachel Carson draws on the biologist's own writings, letters and recent scholarship to tell her inspiring life story. The film features the voice of actress Mary-Louise Parker as Carson, who died in 1964 after a long battle with breast cancer. Rachel Carson premieres as part of PBS' American Experience program on Jan. 24 at 8 p.m. ET.

6 scientists are living like they're on Mars for the next 8 months

6 scientists are living like they're on Mars for the next 8 monthsA group of researchers have just begun their eight-month-mission on Mars. Well, kind of.  On Thursday, six crewmembers entered the geodesic dome that will be their home on Hawaii's Mauna Loa volcano for the next eight months as they live out a simulated mission on the red planet. SEE ALSO: This is what you look like from Mars This marks the start of a mission funded by NASA to help the space agency figure out how people might behave during a real long-duration trip to the red planet.  "During the eight-month HI-SEAS Mission V the crew will perform exploration tasks such as geological fieldwork and life systems management," the University of Hawaii said in a statement.  The HI-SEAS missions are designed, at least in part, to help NASA figure out exactly how people will behave under conditions similar to those astronauts may face on Mars. NASA wants to send people to Mars sometime in the coming decades, and in order to do so, the agency will need to do more than develop technologies for life support and transportation.  A crewmember of a previous HI-SEAS mission. Image: HI-SEAS NASA will also have to contend with the psychological issues that could crop up from a crew that spends years in isolated, cramped quarters for such a mission.  These kinds of problems have been documented in astronauts who have flown to the International Space Station for extended periods of time.  For example, NASA's Scott Kelly — the astronaut who spent a year in space from 2015 to 2016 — admits that he had to contend with a host of physical as well as mental challenges as a result of his trip to orbit.  “During my time in orbit, I lost bone mass, my muscles atrophied, and my blood redistributed itself in my body, which strained my heart," Kelly said in a statement announcing a book deal.  "Every day, I was exposed to ten times the radiation of a person on Earth, which will increase my risk of a fatal cancer for the rest of my life. Not to mention the psychological stress, which is harder to quantify and perhaps as damaging.” "The isolated and confined conditions of the mission, including 20-minutes of delayed communication and partial self-sufficiency, have been designed to be similar to those of a planetary surface exploration mission," the university said in the statement. They also won't be allowed outside without protection like a spacesuit.  Basically, they'll live like they're on another planet. This HI-SEAS crew was chosen specifically as a way to test out models for the composition of future Mars-bound missions, according to the program.  The crew includes engineers Laura Lark, Ansley Barnard, Joshua Ehrlich and Brian Ramos, and PhD candidate in astrobiology Samuel Payler and freelance researcher James Bevington.  HI-SEAS isn't the only Mars simulator out there.  The Mars500 simulation, for example, isolated a crew of people for more than 500 days to see how they behaved and worked together.

This smartphone accessory can diagnose cancer

The smartphone case you slap on the back of your mobile phone might protect it from bumps and scrapes, and maybe even give it a bit of added battery life with a built-in power supply, but there's no OtterBox or Mophie that can hold a candle to a new accessory built by a team of medical researchers looking for a cheap and effective way to analyze DNA. The bulky add-on was developed by an international team of scientists headed by UCLA professor Aydogan Ozcan, and it is a powerful tool in the worldwide battle against cancer. The device, which was built using a 3D printer, turns a standard smartphone — in the team's documentation a Windows Phone was used, but it could presumably work with just about anything — into an a high-powered microscope that allows for the analyzation and imaging of DNA sequences. Much of the hard lifting is done by the phone itself, and all a medical technician needs to do is add a tissue sample to the built-in receptacle. The phone then snaps several images of the resulting sample and then runs that information through an algorithm which is designed to identify tumor DNA or genetic mutations hidden within normal tissue. According to UCLA , the device could be manufactured for "much less" than $500 if it were able to be built in large quantities, meanwhile the cost for a full-fledged microscope with similar capabilities would run from $10,000 all the way up to $50,000 or even higher. The team hopes that its work could help provide advanced medical care to patients in regions without the luxury of cutting-edge technology.

Chief Executive Ken Frazier said that Keytruda in combination therapy could also be cheaper than some rival approaches -- an increasingly important consideration in an era of heightened controversy about high drug prices. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is due to decide by May 10 whether to approve a combination of the immune system-boosting drug with chemotherapy as an initial therapy for advanced lung cancer, the largest cancer market.

The researchers found that tattoo artists typically don't have a standard way of dealing with the moles that they may see on their clients, and contrary to what doctors would recommend, many will tattoo right over a mole if a client requests it.

The “death gap” between rural and urban populations, measured as the number of “excess” or preventable deaths, has been a problem for years, but the CDC’s latest analysis has a particularly worrying aspect. The research team found that while deaths from heart disease, cancer, unintentional injury, chronic lower respiratory disease, and stroke have continued to decline in urban areas, they are beginning to plateau or even, in some cases, rise in rural ones.

Makeup blogger's dad nails anti-LGBTQ bigot with perfect responseManny Gutierrez is a makeup YouTuber with millions of subscribers and a Maybelline ambassadorship. He also has a dad who does not seem to take haters lightly. In early January, the conservative blogger Matt Walsh, who often shares anti-LGBTQ messages on Twitter, posted a picture of Gutierrez wearing makeup, writing "Dads, this is why you need to be there to raise your sons." SEE ALSO: Powerful portraits of LGBTQ women aim to raise breast cancer awareness Gutierrez did not have time for Walsh, responding that his dad, quite simply, is proud of who he is. "Being a man isn't about how 'tough' or 'masculine' you are," he tweeted Saturday. "It's about taking care of the ones you love." My dad actually works for me and is SO PROUD of me 珞 sorry bout it https://t.co/H3Wt7fpB5F — Manny MUA (@MannyMua733) January 14, 2017 Being a man isn't about how "tough" or "masculine" you are ... it's about taking care of the ones you love. — Manny MUA (@MannyMua733) January 14, 2017 But Manny Sr. wanted to say his piece, writing a blistering riposte to Walsh that Gutierrez shared. "Not only am I proud of what he has accomplished but I'm more proud of the person he has become," he wrote in a text Gutierrez posted on Twitter.  "I know the words you speak are from lack of knowing anybody from the LGBT community. If you did, you would soon realize they are some of the most real and kind hearted individuals that walk this planet of ours." Basically, cease and desist. And next time, choose your "actions and words" more wisely. Mashable has reached out to Gutierrez and his dad for comment. My dad is a fucken SAVAGE, I can't with him ❤️ pic.twitter.com/iWceEmZ6L4 — Manny MUA (@MannyMua733) January 14, 2017 Gutierrez had plenty of others fans sticking up for him on social media, but it's always good to know your dad's on your team. COUNTERPOINT: @MannyMua733's dad must've done a heck of a job for him to be doing his thing despite prattlings of the aggressively insecure. https://t.co/3jz6uArXXR — Daniel J.

Barack Obama and Joe Biden get the 'Shawshank' ending they deserve

Barack Obama and Joe Biden get the 'Shawshank' ending they deserveThere's been much speculation about what Barack Obama and Joe Biden will do after leaving office next week. Obama, for one, has stated that he plans to stay active in politics during Trump's presidency. Biden has reportedly expressed a desire to stay involved in the search for a cancer cure. While neither has stated any plans to move to Zihuatanejo, Mexico and fix up an old boat together with money stolen from a crooked prison warden, this video somehow still feels cathartic and possible. Get busy living, Joe and Barack. Tina Fey crashes Felicity Jones' 'SNL' monologue to beg for a 'Star Wars' gig PSA: Here's a video of Donald Trump playing an accordion. That is all.

Expectations

 of the

 Antichrist

 

 

Dr. Chuck Missler and Ron Matsen

 

Price R 499.00

 

There are many diverse anticipations concerning the Coming World Leader, commonly referred to as “The Antichrist.” This study will explore the Biblical descriptions with the specific expectations of the globalists, Islam, the Vatican, Freemasonry, and others.
• Will he be a Nephilim?
• Why is the Vatican openly preparing to receive an “alien” visitor?
• Will he be a resurrection of Nimrod? Is his DNA a factor?
• What are the expectations of transhumanist technologists in this regard?
Clearly, the Bible has much more to illuminate this issue far beyond the popular conceptions; and yet the composite perspective will astonish most. Furthermore, is there a climactic cosmic deception being prepared that, if it were possible, “it would deceive the very elect”? Jesus commanded us, “Be not deceived.” But, how?
How close are these events to our current horizon?
Join Dr. Chuck Missler and Ron Matsen in an intensive summary of some of the Strategic Trends that will impact all of us.

Angels, Volume III: The Denizens of the Metacosm

 

DVD

by Dr. Chuck Missler

 

Description

Volumes 1 & 2 of this series explored the finite limits and boundaries of our physical reality. After probing the limits of both the Macrocosm and the Microcosm, we discovered that our reality is but a shadow of larger reality, the Metacosm, a domain of extra-dimensional transfers and other paradoxical phenomena.

 

Volume 3 explores the contradictory behavior of UFOs and other demonic deceptions characteristic of the End Times. Explore these topics in more detail in either this two-hour briefing, Angels Vol 3: The Denizens of the Metacosm or our six-hour extensive study, Expectations of the Antichrist.

 

 

• Are they real?

• Why do UFOs enjoy a military classification higher than our most sensitive weapons systems?

• Why are the events which occurred in Roswell New Mexico still classified after 66 years?

• Why is the Vatican openly preparing to receive an Alien Visitor?

• How should a Christian deal with the occurrences of Alien abductions?

• Jesus admonished us to “Be not deceived.” How?

• How do we prepare for the deception which, “if it were possible, would deceive the very elect”?

 

Join Dr. Chuck Missler in the Executive Briefing Room of the River Lodge, New Zealand, exploring the misinformation, (and deliberate disinformation) about the various “denizens of the Metacosm” and other insights of the invisible war unfolding on our near horizon.

"In seasons of severe trial, the Christian has nothing on earth that he can trust to, and is therefore compelled to cast himself on God alone. When no human deliverance can avail, he must simply and entirely trust himself to the providence and care of God. Happy storm that wrecks a man on such a rock as this! O blessed hurricane that drives the soul to God--and God alone!"
- Spurgeon
