    (CNN)Scientists in Australia have voiced concern about an apparent outbreak of Buruli ulcer, a flesh-eating disease that usually occurs in West and central Africa. The infectious disease has seen a spike in cases in recent years in several parts of Australia but particularly in the state of Victoria. In a study published Monday in the Medical Journal of Australia, the authors caution that the outbreak of the ulcers, described as an "epidemic" in the study, requires an "urgent scientific response." They report that Victoria is facing a worsening epidemic "defined by cases rapidly increasing in number, becoming more severe in...
  • No confidence in the flesh

    July 12 No Confidence in the Flesh It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh profits nothing. JOHN 6:63 If we grow impatient and fall into the flesh then we become weaker. To react in the flesh diminishes spiritual authority, and this must be avoided at all costs. Allowing the flesh to have its way for only a moment guarantees defeat against a spiritual adversary. We worship God in the Spirit, and rejoice in Christ Jesus, and have no confidence in the flesh (Philippians 3:3). To lose all confidence in the flesh is to take the higher ground of...
  • The Retail Value of Fetal Organs Harvested by Planned Parenthood

    An undercover investigation of Planned Parenthood has turned up evidence that it sold intact fetal organs to at least one California company known as Stem Express... However, she added that the national organization does not offer clients a menu because their own lawyers dont, want us to be the middle people for this issue right now. Dr. Nucatola then mentions that another buyer called Stem Express had approached them with the same request. Stem Express is a California-based company started in 2010. Its website was apparently put into a maintenance mode on Tuesday after the story broke. However, the Internet...

    What Do the Scriptures Mean which speak of “the flesh?” By: Msgr. Charles PopeThere is a common misunderstanding of the meaning of the Biblical phrase “the flesh.”  There are many references to “the flesh” in New Testament Scripture, especially in the letters of St. Paul. The phrase confuses some, who think it synonymous with the physical body or merely with sexual sin.It is true that there are many times when Scripture uses the word “flesh” to refer to the physical body. However, when the definite article “the” is placed before the word “flesh” we are most often dealing with something...

    Catholic Apolgetics.org ^ | 03-09-10 | Dr. Robert Schihl and Paul Flanagan
    Following the details of the multiplication of the loaves and fishes--biographical, Jesus walking on the sea--biographical, Jesus reacts to the crowds' need for signs. Jesus takes them from manna, bread from heaven, to "true bread from heaven (v. 32)" ... "I am the bread (v. 35)." "I am the bread that came down from heaven (v. 41)." This is God saying this: "I am the bread that came down from heaven." If He was not really the bread that came down from heaven, His omnipotent and creative Word would then have made it so.

    There are many references to “the flesh” in New Testament Scripture, especially in the letters of St. Paul. The phrase confuses some who think it synonymous with the physical body. It is true that there are many times when Scripture uses the word “flesh” to refer to the physical body. However when the definite article “the” is placed before the word “flesh” we are dealing with something else. Only very rarely does the Biblical phrase “the flesh” (ἡ σὰρξ (he sarx), in Greek) refer only to the physical body (eg. John 6:53; Phil 3:2; 1 John 4:2) , but almost...
  • Win The Battle Over The Flesh

    "Jesus exhorts us, Watch and pray, lest you enter into temptation. The spirit truly is willing, but the flesh is weak (Mark 14:38). To watch means to be sober, to stay alert. To pray means to be in continual communion with God. The devil is crafty. Hes waiting to slip into your life when youre unaware, at a time when you think everything is fine and nothings going to happen. That is why you must stay sober and alert, 24/7. You can win the battle by filling yourself with the Word of God. My friend, if youre not reading the...
  • The Mind Set On The Spirit...Romans 8

    For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit.For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.(Romans 8:5-6)Why is it that there is no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus? One of the reasons is that those in Christ Jesus are indwelt by the Holy Spirit and live their lives by the Spirit of God. In the last article we looked at Pauls expression, They that are after the flesh, that is those who...

    For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit.For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be.So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God.(Romans 8:5-8)Romans 8 is the great teaching of God about the assurance of salvation. There is now no condemnation to those who are in Christ JesusWhy not? That is...

    You know what a pedicure looks like - but you probably haven't seen one like this. It involves tiny fish, eating the dead skin off your feet. As Derek McGinty reports, a salon in Virginia has brought the practice back from China, and it's very popular.

    Confessing the Word Made Flesh (John 1:1-18; 1 John 4:1-16)And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we have seen his glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth. (John 1:14) Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, for many false prophets have gone out into the world. By this you know the Spirit of God: every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is from God, and every spirit that does not confess Jesus is not...

  • Self-assembled nano-sized probes allow Penn researchers to see tumors through flesh and skin

    02/09/2005 7:26:10 AM PST · by LibWhacker · 3 replies · 437+ views
    PHILADELPHIA Nano-sized particles embedded with bright, light-emitting molecules have enabled researchers to visualize a tumor more than one centimeter below the skin surface using only infrared light. A team of chemists, bioengineers and medical researchers based at the University of Pennsylvania and the University of Minnesota has lodged fluorescent materials called porphyrins within the surface of a polymersome, a cell-like vesicle, to image a tumor within a living rodent. Their findings, which represent a proof of principle for the use of emissive polymersomes to target and visualize tumors, appear in the Feb. 7 online early edition of the Proceedings...

    Achingly painful to watch Americans on videotape On day five, the havoc Julius Caesar invoked when letting slip the dogs of war, was rendered stark. Two British pilots, returning to Kuwait from a mission, were shot down by an American Patriot missile in a friendly-fire accident. A British ITN camera crew also may have suffered a similar awful fate by British artillery. In what appears, unbearably, as a case of fratricide, a young American soldier is suspected and in custody in the grenade-tossing incident that saw one of his comrades murdered and a score of others wounded as they were...
