I affirm the Trinity - One God; Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

I affirm that all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.

I affirm that Christ, born of a woman, eternally existant, creator of all things, was crucified, buried and risen from the dead.

I affirm that by grace we are saved, through faith.

By grace, we have faith in the saving power Christ.I am "Reformed".

I am "Calvinistic" in sotierology, but not in ecclesiology.

Reformed theology differs from both Roman Catholic theology and Arminian theology (Wesleyan/Nazarene/most of what most Americans think is "mainstream")

There are two fundamental "nutshells" that are recognized as "Reformed". The first are the "Five Solas" and the second is "TULIP". There is a lot more to "Reformed theology" than these two pieces, but these are the very basics.

The Five Solas

(along with links to other posts I have written):







Total depravity of man

Unconditional election

Limited Atonement

Irresistable grace

Perseverence of the saints

Not much going on - I started chiropractic and massage.  And "body cleanse" - it's either the best thing since sliced bread or a complete hoax.    I lean toward hoax, but it feels good.

You put your feel in a bath with a little machine that supposedly charged the water with ions that magically draws toxins out of your body through your feet.  Those who believe it's a hoax say that the water changes because the ions oxidizes the water.  Here is a photo of my water after half an hour.Doesn't thatlook very nasty for being a hoax?

But here's a question...if it's the machine ionizing water, and they always use distilled water, why do different people's water turn different colors with different "floaters"?

Here's a list of colors and supposed toxins

  • Yellow-green: detoxifying from kidney, bladder, urinary tract, female/prostate area
  • Orange: detoxifying from joints
  • Brown: detoxifying from liver, tobacco, cellular debris
  • Black: detoxifying from liver
  • Dark green: detoxifying from gall bladder
  • White foam: detoxifying from Lymphatic system
  • White cheese-like particles: Most likely yeast
  • Black flecks: Heavy metals
  • Red flecks: Blood clot material

And the massage is wonderful.  Seriously, a lot of folks don't like chiropractic, but for years I've had a very sore spot in my neck and upper shoulders.  It's nearly gone.
