  • THE OXIDATIVE PROCESS IS LIKE RUST
  • TO STOP THE PROCESS WE UTILIZE “ANTI-OXIDANTS”

THE BIOLOGY OF AGING

1 COR 9:25,26,27

AND EVERY MAN THAT STRIVETH FOR MASTERY IS TEMPERATE IN ALL THINGS. Now they do it to obtain a corruptible crown, but we an incorruptible.

I there so run, not as uncertainly; so fight I not as one that beateth the air;

But I keep under my body; and bring it into subjection; lest that by any means, when I have preached to others, I myself should be a castaway.

Harold Koenig, MD professor of psychiatry at Duke University

spiritual gifts
SPIRITUAL GIFTS
  • CAN ASSIST YOU IN DETERMINING HOW YOU FIT INTO THE “SERVICE” PUZZLE
  • EASILY RESEARCHED IN THE BIBLE(1 COR 12:8-10, 1 COR 12:28, ROMANS 12:6-8, EPHESIANS 4:11)
  • MANY CHURCHES HAVE PROGRAMS TO HELP YOU FIND YOUR GIFTS
  • WHEN YOU HAVE A SPIRITUAL GIFT IT IS NOT TAKEN AWAY WHEN YOU FALTER SPIRITUALLY
  • FEELING CONFIDENT ABOUT YOUR SPIRITUAL GIFTS MAKES YOU FEEL MORE CONFIDENT IN YOUR PERSONAL LIFE
  • BE VERY CAREFUL, AS THE TOPIC OF SPIRITUAL GIFTS OFTEN INCITES MUCH DISCUSSION AND EVEN CONTROVERSY!
