I am embarrassed of my Christian brethren. My Brother and Sisters in Christ who…. wait for this, you need to know who I am embarrassed of… the ones who are up in arms because Starbucks decided to put out a red cup without Christmas designs on it. Seriously? Up in arms because they took away the Christmas deco.
First off, a little blip for everyone out there. Christmas is not a Biblical Holiday, if you are going to be up in arms as a Christian, be up in arms over people wanting to oppress the Bible. But we made this Holiday up, it isn’t Christ’s actual Birthday, and we have totally screwed the idea of celebrating Christs birth in exchange for a gift giving, debt building barrage.
(I must pause here – Christmas is my favorite time of year, and I love the traditions, but I also feel like emulating Christ has nothing to do with celebrating Christmas… in other words, call it what it is, and if it is the celebration of love… please try not to hate)
Back to the embarrassment.
Though I am embarrassed… I wonder what the peaceful Muslims who follow Islam feel regarding the “Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham” are feeling right now. ISIS.
You see, even though I feel justified in my embarrassment as I believe Christians are supposed to be the example of Love. That we are supposed to be that love, and to be the mission of spreading that love. It is pretty obvious if I stop and compare my reason for embarrassment with the valid reason for embarrassment of these people… well, they win. Hands down.
And that is my point as we sit in this world with so many mistakes happening all around us, all the time. The silent majority is irrelevant. As I hear Muslims speak of their peaceful ways, I think “but it doesn’t matter to the messed up few”. When I think that, I follow it with another thought “why don’t they take a stand as well?”
I don’t mind writing this politically charged article. I invite more discussion and eventual debate perhaps. But there is a parrallel that I aim to draw. If it seems obvious that the only way the majority becomes relevant, is to speak up and become less silenced.
What about health? At this point, I am significantly in the minority, but after delivering 900+ doctors reports, I must say, it is interesting how 98% of people coming through, believe without question that they can prevent heart disease, and about 50% believe that some cancer is preventable. So, why don’t these people become vocal? Why don’t they come along side of us and pursue greater truth about health? Or better yet, why don’t they tell others?
Any idea that wins long term, does so because of momentum. I ask you to be part of that momentum, to be part of the solution to educate the world about health. To speak up, and to become a vocal minority in the world, but to trust that one day we are a vocal majority. That spinal care matters, that nutrition is always changing, and there are better solutions than drugs.
Right now the majority of people fall into typical doctrine, but nobody is passionate about it. Nobody is preaching to the world how much better it is to be medicated. Thus they are the SILENT MAJORITY, and my goal is to make them irrelevant.
We hope to help you touch and SAVE a life of someone.
Be well and Be blessed! – Dr. E
