    Sabbath of the 4th Commandment

    in Christianity

    It is lawful to do well on the sabbath days. Matthew 12:12 – {ML 231.1}
    According to the fourth commandment the Sabbath was dedicated to rest and religious worship. All secular employment was to be suspended, but works of mercy and benevolence were in accordance with the purpose of the Lord. They were not to be limited by time or place. To relieve the afflicted, to comfort the sorrowing, is a labor of love that does honor to God’s holy day. – {ML 231.2}
    The necessities of life must be attended to, the sick must be cared for, the wants of the needy must be supplied. He will not be held guiltless who neglects to relieve suffering on the Sabbath. God’s holy rest day was made for man, and acts of mercy are in perfect harmony with its intent. God does not desire His creatures to suffer an hour’s pain that may be relieved upon the Sabbath or any other day.... – {ML 231.3}
    The Sabbath is not intended to be a period of useless inactivity. The law forbids secular labor on the rest day of the Lord; the toil that gains a livelihood must cease; no labor for worldly pleasure or profit is lawful upon that day; but as God ceased His labor of creating, and rested upon the Sabbath and blessed it, so man is to leave the occupations of his daily life and devote those sacred hours to healthful rest, to worship, and to holy deeds. The work of Christ in healing the sick was in perfect accord with the law. It honored the Sabbath. – {ML 231.4}
    Labor to relieve the suffering was pronounced by our Saviour a work of mercy and no violation of the Sabbath. – {ML 231.5}
    The needs of suffering humanity are never to be neglected. The Saviour, by His example, has shown us that it is right to relieve suffering on the Sabbath. – {ML 231.6}

    The Dangers of Diabetes Type 2 & How To Reverse It

    in Nutrition

    There is an emerging global epidemic of diabetes. The causes are complex, but the increase is in large part due to rapid increases in overweight, including obesity and physical inactivity.

    The number of diagnosed diabetics has more than tripled in the last 3 decades and today about 347 million people worldwide have diabetes.

    In 2012 alone diabetes was the direct cause of 1.5 million deaths.

    Of the 3 types of diabetes (Type 1, Type 2 and Gestational), Type 2 accounts for around 90% of all diabetes worldwide and reports of type 2 diabetes in children – previously rare and known as Adult Onset Diabetes – have increased dramatically.

    There is good evidence that a large proportion of cases of diabetes type 2 and its complications can be prevented by a healthy diet, regular physical activity, maintaining a normal body weight and avoiding tobacco.

    In this episode, Dr. Budweiser founder of Weiser Living will take a more indepth look at the complications of diabetes and how to prevent and/or revers it.

    Social Inactivity

    in Self Help

    What is the state of activism in America, your state and your community? People are busier now than ever before, or perhaps just more distracted. Phones, tablets and 3D TV's compete to keep us endlessly entertained. Is there a cost for this non stop indulgence?  Many of us have over one hundred facebook friends but some of the same people don't know their neighbor or parents of their childrens classmates. The less we interact with each other the less we know about each other which can leave room for old suspicions and beliefs to return. We don't care what happpens as long as it doesn't happen to us. Also this week, the latest updates on the Kendrick Johnson and Kenisha McBride cases along with local, national and internation Word On The Street. Join us this Thursday, November 21st from 7p-9p CDT at www.blogtalkradio.com/rapsessions or call in on 347.857.2097 and let's rap about it.

    Curtis Harwell and Kelli Richardson Discuss Teenage Fitness and Reviews

    in Fitness

    Fitness Benefits For Teens


    Teens and young adults, both male and female, benefit from physical activity.
    Physical activity does not need to be strenuous to be beneficial.
    Moderate amounts of daily physical activity are recommended for people of all ages. This amount can be obtained in longer sessions of moderately intense activities, such as brisk walking for 30 minutes, or in shorter sessions of more intense activities, such as jogging or playing basketball for 15-20 minutes.
    Greater amounts of physical activity are even more beneficial, up to a point. Excessive amounts of physical activity can lead to injuries, menstrual abnormalities, and bone weakening.


    Nearly half of American youths aged 12-21 years are not vigorously active on a regular basis. About 14 percent of young people report no recent physical activity. Inactivity is more common among females (14%) than males (7%) and among black females (21%) than white females (12%).
    Participation in all types of physical activity declines strikingly as age or grade in school increases.
    Only 19 percent of all high school students are physically active for 20 minutes or more, five days a week, in physical education classes.
    Daily enrollment in physical education classes dropped from 42 percent to 25 percent among high school students between 1991 and 1995.
    Well designed school-based interventions directed at increasing physical activity in physical education classes have been shown to be effective.
    Social support from family and friends has been consistently and positively related to regular physical activity.
