NUTRASWEET Disease is a World Plague! The U.S. AIR FORCE magazine FLYING SAFETY reported: “The effects of aspartame can be passed directly to the fetus, even in very small doses. People have suffered disorders with doses as small as that carried in a single stick of chewing gum. This could mean a pilot who drinks diet sodas is more susceptible to flicker vertigo or to flicker-induced epileptic activity … all pilots are potential victims of sudden memory loss, dizziness during instrument flight and gradual loss of vision” [May ‘92] Pilots have had grand mal seizures at the controls of commercial airline flights and lost their medical certifications to fly and with it their careers. Aspartame brings 80% of all complaints to the FDA on food additives, yet they’re firmly behind Monsanto, spewing assurance to us its safe as rain.
THE PLAYERSMonsanto, the planet’s premier poison prod-ucer, bought the G D Searle Co., inventor of aspartame. NutraSweet and Equal sell through Monsanto‘s subsidiary: NutraSweet Co.The patent has expired, so now others make aspartame under their names. FDA approved aspartame as a general sweetener for all foods without label identification, so its now The POISON of INFINITE DISGUISES!FDA = Fatal Drugs Allowed!
A global epidemic rages! The FDA has listed 10,000 consumer aspartame complaints with 92 reactions, including Death; but you can’t get the report without a Congressman. FDA, Monsanto’s branch office in Washington, denies the whole thing: “What report?” Meanwhile Monsanto hires regulators who favor them: Mike Friedman, acting FDA Commissioner to whom we’ve referred thousands of case histories, was just made Vice President of Searle. Did you have to take a number and wait in line, Mike? Many preceded him! Two Federal prosecutors, Sam Skinner and Wm. Conlon were assigned to prosecute Searle for submitting false data but the defense lawyers offered them a deal they couldn’t refuse, so they switched sides and the case expired with the statute of limitations. FDA Commissioner Hayes approved aspartame over the objections of his own Public Board of Inquiry, then hired with their PR firm on a fat consultant contract. Consultants don’t have to show up for work, just answer questions on the phone: How’s the weather in Bermuda, Artie? What is treason if not selling us all out to a poisoner for personal pay? HERE ARE SOME of the 92 NUTRASWEET AFFLICTIONS FDA LISTED BUT WON’T TELL YOU ABOUT: Blindness Joint pain Fatigue Weight Gain Chest pain Comas Insomnia Numbness Depression Tinnitus Weakness Spasms Irritability Nausea Deafness Memory loss Rashes Dizziness Headaches 4 types seizures Anxiety Palpitations Fainting Loss of diabetic control Slurred speech Cramps Diarrhea Panic Burning tongue & loss of taste ADD SOME DISEASES TRIGGERED BY ASPARTAME: Brain tumors M Sclerosis Parkinson’s Fibromyalgia Infant death Lupus Graves Lymphoma Retardation Diabetes Alzheimer’s Epilepsy Epstein Barr Miscarriages Breast tumors Chronic fatigue Infertility Psychosis Tremors Lou Gehrig’s MEDICAL TESTIMONY: H J Roberts, MD, FACP, FCCP, named The Best Doctor in the United States by the medical journal Practice 84, has declared Aspartame Disease a world epidemic Author of textbooks used to train doctors, Roberts, an endocrinologist, has a data base of 1,300 aspartame victims. This eminent compassionate physician accepted no corporate funding, Is dedicated only to healing and prevention Read ASPARTAME, IS IT SAFE? SWEETNER DEAREST, DEFENSE AGAINST ALZHEIMERS, soon ASPARTAME DISEASE: The IGNORED EPIDEMIC http://www.icanect.net/sunpress/index.htm 1-(800) 814-9800 The late Dr. Morgan Raiford, Ophthalmologist, “This product has highly toxic reactions to the human visual pathway, and we are beginning to observe the tragic damage to the optic nerve, blindness, partial to total optic nerve atrophy. Once this destructive process has developed there is no return of visual restoration. We are beginning to see another toxic reaction which affects the central nervous system, related to phenylalanine levels in the central nervous system. Over 3,000 cases have been reported and the FDA has ignored this existence.”
Louis Elsas, M.D. Professor of Pediatrics and Gene tics at Emory University, testified to Congress 11/8/87: “I have spent 25 years in biomedical sciences trying to prevent birth defects caused by excess phenylalanine … aspartame is a well known neurotoxin and teratogen [causes birth defects] which will irreversibly in the developing child or fetal brain, produce adverse effects. THE PLACENTA CONCENTRATES PHENYLALANINE and this CAUSES MENTAL RETARDATION” Neurosurgeon Russell Blaylock, M.D. in a lecture on Error! Bookmark not defined. says aspartame is a toxin like arsenic & cyanide. An excitotoxin, causing confusion, disorientation, seizures, cancer and death: “aspartame exposure significantly increases formaldehyde in all tissue including the brain and retina; formaldehyde is a powerful carcinogenic agent” causing brain tumors, pancreatic, uterine and ovarian tumors. Excitotoxic brain destruction is a self-reinforcing spiral culminating in Alzheimer’s Read Dr. Blalock’s EXCITOTOXINS, The TASTE That KILLS  474-0303 John W. Olney, M.D. In the November 1996 reported that brain tumor rates had risen for 17 years with a sudden 10% increase three years after aspartame was introduced. Olney linked aspartame’s mutagenicity to the function of aspartate as an excitoxic neurotransmitter. Olney may be the most famous neuroscientist on the planet.. James Bowen, M.D. writing to the FDA: “The only responsible action would be to immediately take aspartame off the market, fully disclose its toxicities, offer full compensation to the injured public and criminally prosecute anyone who participated in the placement of aspartame on the market. That includes those who work so diligently to keep it there as well.” George R Schwartz, M.D. writing to Monsanto: “By ignoring the scientific studies which disagree with your position, you are doing a great disservice to consumers. Further, you may have created a base for litigation against your company by denying the existing science.” Schwartz is on the faculty of 2 medical schools. The NATIONAL SOFT DRINK Assn. Protested AGAINST Aspartame: Congressional Record 5/7/85 contains the Objections of the NSDA to the Use of Aspartame in Carbonated Beverages calling it “uniquely and inherently unstable,” protesting it hadn’t been demonstrated safe, the tests were done with the wrong equipment, with buffered solutions rather than soda, the decomposition products weren’t analyzed and “extensive deficiencies in the studies by Searle render those studies inadequate and unreliable.” They wanted it outlawed! It was approved, the cash registers began to ring, so they forgot to tell us The REAL THING is REAL DEADLY! Diet soda leads FDA report. They’re formaldehyde cocktails, as embalming fluid is one of many breakdowns which includes formic acid [ant sting poison and paint stripper activator], methyl alcohol, L-Dopa, dopamine, diketopiperazine, epinephrine, phenylactic acid, and others. [S5505] “THE MOST TESTED PRODUCT IN HISTORY” Ralph Walton, MD declared on 60 MINUTES that every NutraSweet funded study shows it’s safe, but 83 out of 90 independent studies show it harmful. Spokesman R. Moser claims no evidence was ever found that aspartame causes seizures:. Fifteen of the studies submitted to FDA for NS approval were designated as “Pivotal Studies”. Example: SC-18862 “A 52 WEEK ORAL TOXICITY INFANT MONKEY STUDY” 7 monkeys were divided into 3 dosage groups. “52 weeks” was actually 204 to 364 daysData was LOST on one monkey which diedOne monkey, P53, had “Congenital physical deficiencies” Data on him was LOST too. What happened to the little monkeys? “All animals in the medium and high dosage groups exhibited seizure activity. … of the Grand Mal type. One monkey, M38, died after 300 days. The cause of death was not determined. … Following the termination of treatment, medium and high dose monkeys were kept under observation for 3 months … No further convulsions were detected. The convulsions in the monkeys can be attributed to high serum phenylalanine levels” Q. HOW DID THIS STUDY PROVE ASPARTAME IS SAFE FOR HUMANS? A. Just 84% of MONKEYS had grand mal seizures or died: no people ! You’re the monkey now! From the Twilight Zone FDA agreed this study proves aspartame is safe for the world’s human population. The surviving monkeys took the No Aspartame test and got well: if you have Aspartame Disease, we urge you: Do the same! Dr. Adrian Gross, FDA Toxicologist analyzed a study on rats, listing 14 blunders: unreported tumors, incomplete examinations, hiding deaths, destroying rats before they were analyzed, etc. He wrote Sen. Howard Metzenbaum: “The views of the FDA’s Center for Food Safety read like a script for Abbott & Costello, perceptions inside-out and upside down … 329 fetuses examined in 2 days by a single person, a clear impossibility.”
Because of such corrupt “studies” FDA requested the Justice Department to begin grand jury proceedings to investigate Searle for knowingly misrepresenting findings, concealing material facts and making false statements. This was the first time in FDA history such action was taken [1/10/1977]. Sidney & Austin, the Chicago firm defending Searle expeditiously solved the problem by hiring the government lawyers. Ooo Ooo Ooo! What a little money can Do Ooo Ooo! VICTIM CASE HISTORIES. We’ve sent THOUSANDS to FDA: Wm. Reed, Pullman, Michigan: I’m a diabetic. I used Equal in my coffee, a lot of diet drinks and NutraSweet in many foods. I started having headaches all the time. I started having seizures, up to 8 seizures, one right after another. I couldn’t sleep, my mouth was dry all the time. I had sores on my tongue, I started having trouble with my memory. I had muscle spasms in my legs almost every night which caused my legs to be sore all day long, and my back was sore from seizures. I was so sick I thought I was dying. A relative informed me my problem may be NutraSweet. Anything was worth a try, so I quit on Sunday and by Tuesday the seizures stopped. I haven’t had any since, and all the other symptoms have stopped. This poison should be taken off the market. Richard Wilson: They Murdered My Wife! No words can describe the agony and horror my sweet Joyce endured. The poison destroyed her brain, ravaged all her organs and blinded her. Joyce was full of life, not overweight but wanting to stay slim. When NS was approved she thought it was a diet product, not a drug. She used diet drinks, Equal, Slimfast, sugarfree gum, etc. She gained 35 pounds! She said it wouldn’t be on the market if it wasn’t safe. She went to 34 doctors, but she was consuming deadly poison approved by the FDA. Joyce was going blind. No one knew methanol, wood alcohol in aspartame, converts to formaldehyde in the retina. One day on TV she saw Shannon Roth, blinded in one eye by NutraSweet. As she explained her injuries Joyce said “that’s me!.” Next Joyce saw Dr. Morgan Raiford, was a specialist in methanol toxicity, having treated moonshine victims. He confirmed that Joyce, like Shannon whom he diagnosed, was being blinded by NutraSweet. She had been wrongly diagnosed as having multiple sclerosis because doctors didn’t know aspartame disease mimics MS as it destroys the nervous system. She suffered terrible headaches, hypertension and tachycardia, Joyce kept getting people off aspartame with great satisfaction watching them return to normal useful lives, something she knew she would never do. She had all the evidence and thought she would get help from the Government, but came to realize there was but one way to stop this devastation, for the people to get involved. She began to lose her memory and finally became like an Alzheimer victim, blind, no memory, a vegetable. In 1991 Joyce lost her fight for life. I’m a man without a wife because NutraSweet is a business without a conscience! STOCKBRIDGE, Georgia. WHY is NutraSweet everywhere? For the same reasons as tobacco: Greed, Addiction and Penurious Profit! It’s a molecule composed of three poisons, aspartic acid, phenylalanine and methyl alcohol The first two are amino acids found in our foods, usually accompanied with a dozen or more other amino acids, however as isolates they’re toxic, as Dr Raiford explained. Methyl alcohol blinded thousands of skid row drunks, an ounce can be fatal. There’s methyl alcohol in oranges and other fruits too, but accompanied by much more ethyl alcohol, the classic antidote, says Dr. Woodrow Monte. Director of the Food Science and Nutrition Laboratory at Arizona State University, Tempe, IT MAKES YOU FAT! When you’ve eaten enough your body produces serotonin, which tells your brain you’ve been fed. Aspartame defeats the brain ability to detect serotonin, so you crave carbohydrates, Low serotonin also brings depression, paranoia, obesity, destabilized minds and rage. I consider aspartame much guilty for the wave of criminal insanity in our hostile, dangerous, angry age. PAYOLA! The AMERICAN DIABETES Assn. gets megabucks from NutraSweet, thus Dr H J Roberts’ abstract summarizing 58 aspartame reactors. It was published in Clinical Research. Frankly, Darling, ADA doesn’t give a dime for the health of diabetics! Another ADA, The AMERICAN DIETETICS Assn. admits NS writes their stuff. Their Jan ‘93 ADA Courier sports a picture of ADA grabbing a $75,000 NutraSweet check: Their Facts About Aspartame paper insanely advises: “People of all ages including pregnant or breastfeeding women, teens and children over two years old can enjoy products sweetened with aspartame.” New York Times wrote of ADA’s “aggressive pursuit of cash from groups like the Sugar Association and Coca Cola …their fundamental position is THERE ARE NO BAD FOODS.” They don’t care what you eat as long as they’re paid to pimp the poison! Mission Possible awards these world-class Jello makers & girlfriends-for-hire a fitting prize: A RED LIGHT BULB. EUROPEAN REPORTS showed $60,000,000 in contaminated Coke being dumped because people of three nations had nausea, headaches and other symptoms on FDA’s list. Coke said the problem was psychogenic, you know: they just thought they were sick. I think it was aspartame! GULF WAR SYNDROME As temperatures climb the breakdown of aspartame gets into high gear. Truckloads of diet soda sat in the Arabian sun for months and thousands of HEALTHY young men and women drank formaldehyde cocktails; they were devastated by the long list of symptoms shown on the FDA report; damage so great as to cause birth defects in children fathered afterwards. 1993 research by Shephard, Wakabayashi & Nagao showed aspartame is mutagenic, causing mutations, birth defectsHandsome soldier, clear of eye

March 3, 2007
The last couple days in North Carolina have been beautiful, warm enough to sit in the sun with only a t-shirt and watch the birds prepare for spring. I love nature, there is nothing like the smell of dirt as the ground begins thawing after a long winter or the excitement of seeing seedlings poke their heads out of the ground for the first time; I guess part of me is still the kid that likes to dig in the dirt. I also believe that spending time in nature is a great way to connect with God and the flow of life and creativity that exists on the earth. Although my joy this year has been hampered by the sight of the planes overhead littering the skies with ropey trails and the accompanying sense of confusion and dismay that other people don’t see them, don’t care or don’t know.
Yes I’m talking about chemtrails, I've written a few other articles about them, which have received minimal attention, but still I persist. (1) (2) (3) Since I haven’t come to any conclusions in my own mind and thoughts of chemtrails send me into metaphysical theory, I’ve reached out to others in the very small field of study. Dr. Stephen D. McKay recently sent me an email and shared the news that he has been contacted by the BBC and Channel 4 in the U.K. to work on two documentaries about weather modification and geo-engineering projects, including the chemtrail issue. And yesterday I received his findings after six years of research into the subject.
Dr. McKay (photos)believes there are four ongoing projects in our atmosphere, “The first project is an effort to block the rays of the sun from hitting the earth including the ultra violet radiation that will come through without an adequate layer of ozone in the upper regions above the earth. This, it is hoped, will lower temperature on the surface of the earth and block ultra violet radiation from causing skin cancer in humans. The aerosol is probably aluminum oxide or a compound that would have similar properties.”
“The second and most secretive project is the United States Navy's, RFMP, Radio Frequency Mission Planner, military program. The RFMP is the system name given to a group of computer programs and one of the supporting, subprograms within the RFMP system is called the VTRPE computer program. VTRPE is an acronym that stands for Variable Terrain Radio Parabolic Equation, It is a computer Radio Frequency propagation program that deals with radio waves and enables the RFMP system to visually see the battlefield terrain in 3 dimensions (3-D) on a television screen. The RFMP system also depends on satellites to feed their images of the battlefield into the RFMP system to be combined with the battlefield picture painted from the ground thus producing 3-D images.”
”By providing an extremely interactive and visual (television type radar screens) environment, the Radio Frequency Mission Planner, RFMP system allows the computer operator to develop familiarity with the "Radio Frequency" environment before a battlefield war mission occurs by playing a variety of "what-if" virtual warfare scenarios on his computer screen. Since all major modes of Radio Frequency propagation are modeled in his computer, (RFMP system), special, sometimes counter- intuitive, cases can be examined in detail and exploited during a warfare battle mission.”
”The VTRPE computer program only worked accurately over water and along coastal areas but not over land masses because the system's radar waves required an atmospheric condition known as "ducting", over land, to operate accurately.”
”The government and military solved the "ducting" problem by releasing an aerosol, a mixture of barium salts into the atmosphere over America. They made an atmospheric RF duct with a base of barium aerosol from aircraft. The chemical and electrical characteristics of the mixture will cause water moisture to stay in clouds. Again, the aerosol sets up an electrical and chemical environment that supports RF ducting for the RFMP / VTRPE warfare system. Fibers with barium may support ducting. The mixture of barium salt aerosol when sprayed in a straight line will also provide a ducting path from point A to point B and will enable high frequency communications along that path, even over the curvature of the earth, in both directions. Enemy high frequency communications can be monitored easier with the straight line A to B ducting medium.”
”The third project also utilizes the mixture of barium salts in the atmosphere. Weather control is a project of the U.S. Air Force and utilizes Nikola Tesla concepts of radio frequency radiation (HAARP) against the ionosphere above the earth. Fragile life support systems in our environment are being manipulated, tested and altered by government for military advantage. Air Force documents implied, "the risks are high but the rewards are worth it." The mixture of barium salts, supporting moisture, is encouraged along the weather fronts and manipulated in a control fashion. It is believed microwave energy is also utilized in the weather control program. Weather data is also a required input to the VTRPE program of the RFMP system. Perfected weather control technology will enable a military to withhold rain, cause floods, cause drought, cause storms, withhold sunshine, damage food crops, and bring any country to its knees without firing a shot.”
”The fourth project in the atmosphere is the DARPA, Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, biological detection and decontamination programs. The program also utilizes the mixture of barium salts as the base vehicle in aerosol along with special polymer fibers in the atmosphere. They have released biological into the atmosphere in trials, testing the detection and decontamination systems.”
”It is believed that barium salt, polymer fibers and other chemicals, in the atmosphere are the physical irritants that are either directly or indirectly responsible, for the recent epidemic increase in cases of nose bleed, asthma, allergies, pneumonia, upper respiratory symptoms and a noticeable increase in arthritis symptoms, recently reported nationwide. Chemicals illegally sprayed into the atmosphere are producing atmospheric and ground conditions detrimental to human and animal health but favorable to the growth of harmful molds and fungus. These conditions are not conducive to good health. The soluble salts of barium, an earth metal, are toxic in mammalian systems. They are absorbed rapidly from the gastrointestinal tract and are deposited in the muscles, lungs, and bone. No case data is available from the medical community on the long term effects of barium in the human body.”
”The programs are secret because the Federal EPA and State Environmental Quality Agencies need to "not know" about what the by-products of the metabolites of biological, illegal and harmful agents are. It's for that reason the project has been declared secret from the citizens of the countries.”
So, now we know and it is as much as we suspected, so I guess the question becomes, what next? As I enjoyed the fine southern weather the last couple days and watched planes, sometimes five at a time, leave their trails across the sky, I heard we were expecting a terribly violent storm and I wondered, why doesn’t everyone see the pattern?
And again the door to my philosophical brain springs open with a thousand questions and few answers, I’ve heard many express that seeing the chemtrails was life-changing, most remember the date as one would a traumatic experience, but I know that life-changing experiences only make us stronger. I’ve heard others express the idea that becoming aware of the activity overhead felt like they had been called, or chosen, for a greater purpose, similar to the characters in the movie Close Encounters of the Third Kind. But most just speak of fear, death and disease raining from the clouds and I am suggesting that if this a nefarious plot by the global elitist to harm humanity, then fear is exactly how they would expect us to feel and it is our duty to rise above that emotion.
Much thanks to Dr. McKay for sharing his time and his findings.

Global Research Feature Article
Iran: Pieces in Place for Escalation
"The fuel for a fire is in place".
by Colonel Sam Gardiner
The following text by Colonel Sam Gardiner (USAF, Retired) confirms our worst fears. The US is in an advanced state of readiness to wage war on Iran.
To reverse the tide requires a massive campaign of networking and outreach to inform people across the land, nationally and internationally, in neighborhoods, workplaces, parishes, schools, universities, municipalities, on the dangers of a US sponsored war, which contemplates the use of nuclear weapons. The message should be loud and clear: It is not Iran which is a threat to global security but the United States of America and Israel. Even without the use of nukes, the proposed aerial bombardments could result in escalation, ultimately leading us into a broader war in the Middle East.
Debate and discussion must also take place within the Military and Intelligence community, particularly with regard to the use of tactical nuclear weapons, within the corridors of the US Congress, in municipalities and at all levels of government. Ultimately, the legitimacy of the political and military actors in high office must be challenged.
The corporate media also bears a heavy responsibility for the cover-up of US sponsored war crimes. It must also be forcefully challenged for its biased coverage of the Middle East war.
What is needed is to break the conspiracy of silence, expose the media lies and distortions, confront the criminal nature of the US Administration and of those governments which support it, its war agenda as well as its so-called "Homeland Security agenda" which has already defined the contours of a police State.
The World is at the crossroads of the most serious crisis in modern history. The US has embarked on a military adventure, "a long war", which threatens the future of humanity. It is essential to bring the US war project to the forefront of political debate, particularly in North America and Western Europe. Political and military leaders who are opposed to the war must take a firm stance, from within their respective institutions. Citizens must take a stance individually and collectively against war.
Michel Chossudovsky, Global Research, 16 January 2006
I do not accept the notion that the first casualty of war is truth. (Col. Sam Gardiner)
The pieces are moving. They’ll be in place by the end of February. The United States
will be able to escalate military operations against Iran
. The second carrier strike group leaves the U.S. west coast on Tuesday. It will be joined by naval mine clearing assets from both the United States and the UK. Patriot missile defense systems have also been ordered to deploy to the Gulf.
Maybe as a guard against North Korea
seeing operations focused on Iran
as a chance to be aggressive, a squadron of F-117 stealth fighters has just been deployed to Korea. This has to be called escalation.
We have to remind ourselves, just as Iran
is supporting groups inside Iraq
, the United States is supporting groups inside Iran.
Just as Iran
has special operations troops operating inside Iraq
, we’ve read the United States has special operations troops operating inside Iran.
Just as Iran
is supporting Hamas, two weeks ago we found out the United States
is supporting arms for Abbas. Just as Iran
are supporting Hezbollah in Lebanon
we’re now learning the White House
has approved a finding to allow the CIA to support opposition groups inside Lebanon
. Just as Iran
is supporting Syria
, we’ve learned recently that the United States is going to fund Syrian opposition groups.
We learned this week the President authorized an attack on the Iranian liaison office in Irbil.
The White House keeps saying there are no plans to attack Iran. Obviously, the facts suggest otherwise.
Equally as clear, the Iranians will read what the Administrations is doing not what it is saying.
It is possible the White House
strategy is just implementing a strategy to put pressure on Iran
on a number of fronts, and this will never amount to anything. On the other hand, if the White House is on a path to strike Iran, we’ll see a few more steps unfold.
First, we know there is a National Security Council staff-led group whose mission is to create outrage in the world against Iran. Just like before Gulf II, this media group will begin to release stories to sell a strike against Iran. Watch for the outrage stuff.
The Patriot missiles going to the GCC states are only part of the missile defense assets. I would expect to see the deployment of some of the European-based missile defense assets to Israel, just as they were before Gulf II.
I would expect deployment of additional USAF fighters into the bases in Iraq
, maybe some into Afghanistan
I think we will read about the deployment of some of the newly arriving Army brigades going into Iraq
being deployed to the border with Iran
. Their mission will be to guard against any Iranian movements into Iraq
. As one of the last steps before a strike, we’ll see USAF tankers moved to unusual places, like Bulgaria. These will be used to refuel the US-based B-2 bombers on their strike missions into Iran. When that happens, we’ll only be days away from a strike.
The White House
could be telling the truth. Maybe there are no plans to take Iran
to the next level. The fuel for a fire is in place, however. All we need is a spark. The danger is that we have created conditions that could lead to a Greater Middle East

It has come to my attention that many of you are
upset that folks are taking My name out of the
season. Maybe you've forgotten that I wasn't
actually born during this time of the year and that
it was some of you're predecessors who decided to
celebrate My birthday on what was actually a time of
pagan festival; although, I do appreciate being
How I personally feel about this celebration can
probably be most easily understood by those of you
who have been blessed with children of your own. I
don't care what you call the day. If you want to
celebrate My birth just, GET ALONG AND LOVE ONE
ANOTHER. Now, having said that let Me go on.
If it bothers you that the town in which you live
doesn't allow a scene depicting My birth, then just
get rid of a couple of Santas and snowmen and put in
a small Nativity scene on your own front lawn. If
all My followers did that there wouldn't be any need
for such a scene on the town square because there
would be many of them all around town.
Stop worrying about the fact that people are calling
the tree a holiday tree, instead of a Christmas
tree. It was I who made all trees. You can and may
remember Me anytime you see any tree. Decorate a
grape vine if you wish: I actually spoke of that one
in a teaching that explains who I am in relation to
you and what each of our tasks are. If you have
forgot that one, look at John 15:1-8.
If you want to give Me a present in remembrance of
My birth here is my wish list. Choose something from
1. Instead of writing protest letters objecting to
the way My birthday is being celebrated, write
letters of love and hope to soldiers away from home.
They are terribly afraid and lonely this time of
year. I know, they t ell Me all the time.
2. Visit someone in a nursing home. You don't have
to know them personally. They just need to know that
someone cares about them.
3. Instead of writing George complaining about the
wording on the cards his staff sent out this year,
why don't you write and tell him that you'll be
praying for him and his family this year. Then
follow up. It will be nice hearing from you again.
4. Instead of giving your children a lot of gifts
you can't afford and they don't need, spend time
with them. Tell them the story of My birth and why I
came to live with you down here. Hold them in your
arms and remind them that I love them.
5. Pick someone that has hurt you in the past and
forgive him or her.
6. Did you know that someone in your town will
attempt to take their own life this season because
they feel so alone and hopeless? Since you don't
know who that person is, try giving everyone you
meet a warm smile it could make the difference.
Also, you might consider supporting the local
Hot-Line: they talk with people like that every day.
7. Instead of nit picking about what the retailer in
your town calls the holiday, be patient with the
people who wor k there. Give them a warm smile and a
kind word. Even if they aren't allowed to wish you a
"Merry Christmas" that doesn't keep you from wishing
them one. Then stop shopping there on Sunday. If the
store didn't make so much money on that day they'd
close and let their employees spend the day at home
with their families.
8. If you really want to make a difference, support
a missionary, especially one who takes My love and
Good News to th ose who have never heard My name.
You may already know someone like that.
9. Here's a good one. There are individuals and
whole families in your town who not only will have
no "Christmas" tree, but neither will they have any
presents to give or receive. If you don't know them
(and I suspect you don't) buy some food and a few
gifts and give them to the Marines, the Salvation
Army or some other charity that believes in Me and
they will make the delivery for you.
10. Finally if you want to make a statement about
your belief in and loyalty to Me, then behave like a
Christian. Don't do things in secret that you
wouldn't do in My presence. Let people know by your
actions that you are one of mine.
P.S. Don't forget; I am God and can take care of
Myself. Just love Me and do what I have told you to
do. I'll take care of all the rest. Check out the
list above and get to work; time is short. I'll help
you, but the ball is now in your court. And do have
a most blessed Christmas with all those you love
and, remember, I LOVE YOU.

It was reported by the Associated Press that last July, near the town of Gavas, eastern Turkey, one sheep among a large flock walked to the edge of cliff and jumped to its death. A second sheep quickly imitated the first, also leaping off the cliff to its death. Then a third sheep followed. Then a fourth. Then a fifth. The AP reported that "stunned Turkish shepherds, who had left the herd to graze while they had breakfast, watched as nearly 1,500 others followed, each leaping off the same cliff." When it was all over, 450 sheep had died and 1,050 survived, but only because those sheep that jumped later were saved as the pile of sheep got higher and the fall more cushioned. Imagine the peer pressure that last sheep must have felt. Surely 1,499 sheep can't be wrong, can they?
There is no such thing as a sheep that possesses leadership qualities—all are born followers. Consequently, any sheep that does anything out of the ordinary, regardless of how foolish it is, becomes a leader by default. And all the other sheep, having no idea what it means to think for themselves, blindly follow. They simply assume the "lead sheep" must know something that they don't. I once watched scores of sheep jump over an obstacle that didn't exist, only because the first sheep in line had jumped over that same invisible obstacle. Perhaps not wanting to appear foolish, they all acted like fools. Slaughter houses take advantage of this weakness among sheep, commonly employing what they call a "Judas sheep" that every day leads the other sheep down the corridor to where their throats will be slit.
I'm sure you know where I'm going with this. It is no accident that God refers to people, and often His own people, as sheep&mdash
robably not the highest compliment. Sheep are dumb, and I mean d–u–m, dumb. They are easily misled, and so are we. As hard as it may be to admit, we generally tend to be followers who let others do our thinking for us. Sadly, we'll follow just about anyone who appears to know what he is talking about. The wool is easily pulled over our eyes if somebody draws big crowds (1,499 sheep can't be wrong, can they?), has initials after his name, shows some stage presence (what is often referred to as "anointing"), can read Greek, is on TV, or has written a book. "There's a sucker born every minute," quipped P.T. Barnum, but I'm afraid there's a sheep born every second. And there are a lot of sheep who are leaders by default only because the rest of us are too sheepish to question where they're leading us. Unfortunately, they're often leading us off the edge of cliffs, over non-existent obstacles, or down slaughter house corridors.
So what should not-so-smart sheep like us do to avoid being misled?
Foremost, we should make sure we're following the one whom Scripture refers to as "the good Shepherd,""the great Shepherd," "the Chief Shepherd" and the "one Shepherd" (see John 10:11; Heb. 13:20; 1 Pet. 5:4; John 10:16). That would be Jesus, of course, and it is no accident that Scripture refers to Him using all those phrases. He is the only safe Shepherd to follow. When He has His rightful place in our lives as Supreme Shepherd, we will not be misled. A person's propensity to be misled is directly proportional to the degree that he allows others to usurp Christ's lordship in his life. Those who "love the approval of men rather than the approval of God" (John 12:43) are most likely to follow other cliff-jumping sheep, craving their approval. But the sheep who can honestly say, "The Lord is my Shepherd" (Ps. 23:1), who refuses to give to any other sheep or shepherd what rightfully belongs to the Great Shepherd alone, and who doesn't care what the other sheep think, is safe. He won't be jumping off cliffs. Rather, he'll be lying down in green pastures (see Ps. 23:2).
Jesus plainly warned us against giving to any spiritual leader what rightfully belongs only to God:
But do not be called Rabbi; for One is your Teacher, and you are all brothers. And do not call anyone on earth your father; for One is your Father, He who is in heaven. And do not be called leaders; for One is your Leader, that is, Christ. But the greatest among you shall be your servant (Matt. 23:8-11).
I'm afraid that the letter and the spirit of these instructions are often ignored. So many spiritual leaders these days are grasping for titles, and there have never been so many bishops, doctors, psalmists, prophets and apostles. Not only do they place titles in front of their names, but they line rows of initials after their names, and all for one purpose—to impress us. And impressed we are. Dumb sheep like us have made idols of these men, and the evidence is plain:
1.) We give them continual praise, frequently talking about them and their marvelous ministries.
2.) We're awe-struck in their presence (even addressing them with the title "Reverend").
3.) We bring them our offerings so they can continue to live at a standard far above us.
4.) We read their books more than we read our Bibles.
5.) We follow their teachings that blatantly contradict the words of the Great Shepherd.
That's at least semi-idolatry.
I recently looked through the full-color monthly ministry magazine of one of those very popular idols, and counted his photo no less than 47 times within its eight pages. (No secular leader would dare to be so brash in idolizing himself.) When we give honor to those that are exalting themselves in these ways, we are laying out a welcome mat to the deceiver.
Take note that in the New Testament, no one in God's Kingdom had any titles except the Lord Jesus. You can't find, for example, the phrase "the apostle Paul," in the Bible. Yes, Paul did refer to himself using the words, "Paul, an apostle of Christ" (see 2 Cor. 1:1; Gal. 1:1; Eph. 1:1; Col. 1:1; 1 Tim. 1:1; 2 Tim. 1:1). The word "apostle," however, (meaning, one who is sent) was his calling, not his title. Paul also sometimes began his letters with, "Paul, a bond-servant of Christ Jesus, called as an apostle" (see Rom. 1:1; Tit. 1:1). He once asked the Corinthian believers, "What is Paul?", and then answered his own question: "A servant through whom you have believed" (1 Cor. 3:5). To the same group he later called himself "the least of the apostles" (1 Cor. 15:9).
Compare that to the spiritual leaders today who try to impress us with their titles and bios that list the many reasons they should be admired. Some time ago, for example, I saw an advertisement for a church in my area that consists of about 25 people. The pastor had bestowed upon himself the title of "senior pastor." I was recently reading the bio of an unknown minister on his website (where he had plagiarized an entire article I had written), and it said that he was one of America's most sought-after speakers. (Perhaps he meant he was being sought by the police.) In Nigeria, I once met a bishop whose name was preceded by the title, "His Lordship, the Most High Reverend..."! (I'm sure God didn't mind sharing His spot in the universe with him.)
In the book of Acts, Paul's name is listed 126 times. Only once did Luke even mention that Paul was an apostle (see Acts 14:14). The other 125 times Luke simply called him "Paul." Similarly, Peter once mentioned Paul in one of his letters, and he called him "our beloved brother Paul" (2 Pet. 3:15).
Along these same lines, there is no mention in the New Testament of "Bishop so-and-so," "Apostle so-and-so" or "Prophet so-and-so. In fact, there is no mention of anyone with the honorable title of "Pastor" either. Was Jesus' forbidden list of titles limited exclusively to "teacher," "father" and "leader"? Or should we read beyond the letter of what He was saying and into the spirit of it?
As one who has pretty well proven his love and esteem for pastors all over the world, I'm certainly not advocating that we not honor those to whom honor is due. But I've noticed that some saints go beyond honoring their pastors to the point of idolizing them, and the title that always accompanies their pastor's name is one among many manifestations of the very thing Jesus forbade. Could we be arousing the jealousy of the Great, Good, Chief and Only Shepherd when we gush over earthly shepherds? If someone asked you, "Who is your shepherd?," would you quote Psalm 23:1, or would you name the person whose name is painted on the church sign? Of greater concern, would your pastor correct you if you started addressing him without his title? If so, run. Run for your life. “Beware of the scribes, who...love respectful greetings...and chief seats...and places of honor" (Luke 20:46).
All of this is just to say that, when we are enamored by spiritual leaders, we are susceptible to be deceived because we are giving to man what rightfully belongs only to God. Again, a person's propensity to be misled is directly proportional to the degree that he allows others to usurp Christ's lordship in his life. And when spiritual leaders crave to be admired, it reveals that something is very wrong in their hearts.
Please note that I am not saying that God's sheep only need Jesus and don't need pastors. On the contrary, God has placed shepherds in the Church, and sheep desperately need shepherds. But the shepherds they need are under-Shepherds who are setting an example of obedience to the Great Shepherd (see 1 Tim. 4:12). That kind of shepherd is the only safe under-Shepherd to follow. Paul wrote, "Be imitators of me, just as I also am of Christ" (1 Cor. 11:1). True, God-sent leaders are like Christ. But you can't discern who is like Christ unless you know something about what Christ is like. So again, it is unsafe to follow any human shepherd unless the Great Shepherd has absolute preeminence in your life.
Pastors and other spiritual leaders are, of course, also sheep in God's flock, who have just as much propensity as the rest of us to follow other sheep over cliffs. They, too, have their favorite teachers, many of whom are default leaders only because they're straying in a new direction. That is why the Church is always besieged with new "movements." Pastors, following other sheep who are the latest default leaders, promote the latest movement to their flocks. I've quit keeping tabs on all the movements, but I've lived through my share and joined a few. The shepherding movement...the deliverance movement...the faith movement...the intercession movement...the spiritual warfare movement...the church growth movement...the prophetic movement...the seeker-sensitive movement...the apostolic movement. All have been promoted by sheep following sheep who have pushed some biblical truth to unbiblical extremes and who have given to man a place in their lives that belongs only to God.
Some pastors jump from one movement to the next, thinking that "winds of doctrine" (see Eph. 4:14) are actually "waves of the Spirit." They're always looking for the next wave to catch. Others get locked into movements that have long ago subsided, and visiting their churches is like going back in time anywhere from ten to four-hundred years. On the other hand, some wise pastors who have the good sense not to go with the latest flow, have unfortunately been washed right out of their churches by movements that gained enough influence to send most of their flocks surfing a wave that ultimately crashed on the shore of reality. How much better is it to just stay anchored to Jesus and His timeless Word. Then those waves roll right on by.
Although Scripture compares us to sheep, the analogy is of course imperfect, as are all analogies. Unlike real sheep, we don't have to be so stupid, following other sheep over cliffs. We can all actually think for ourselves, and Jesus, the Great Shepherd, has even also told us how we can recognize those who are wolves in sheep's clothing. Although they may appear to be sheep, they can be recognized, He said, by their fruits. He was not speaking of fruits of miracles, because He warned within the same context against spiritual leaders who work miracles but who were not holy (see Matt. 7:22-23). Thus, when He said that we'd know them by their fruits, he must have been speaking of their fruits of holiness. Simply put, are spiritual leaders like Jesus? Do they live as He lived? Do they teach what He taught? Are they humble servants?
If we'll only follow the simple instructions of our Great Shepherd it is quite easy, even for dumb sheep like us, to know who to follow and who not to follow. Our Good Shepherd is guiding us, not to follow foolish fads, but down "paths of righteousness for His name's sake" (see Ps. 23:3). He leads us on paths of righteousness because He is holy, and He requires that we be holy. Thus, any under-shepherd who is not leading his flock down paths of righteousness—by means of his teaching and example—is not a shepherd that anyone should be following. 1,499 sheep can be wrong.
