Why I Reject Organized Religion!

The shepherds of my people have lost their senses.

My answer to yet another inquiry about why I don’t go to church and the routine comment that the “Bible says we aren’t to forsake the assembly…” Here’s the answer I gave:

First, I can hear a message by opening my own Bible or any one of the books we’re actively reading in this home that are actually about prophecy and revelations regarding the end times but much more is examined because we’re intrigued and want to know.

Next is the reality that I’m very much having a “John the Baptist” kind of journey where GOD’s asked me to yell at the slackers that it’s time to “make straight the way of the Lord” because “He’s coming soon.”  If you notice GOD kept John out in the wilderness away from the people.  He once revealed that His purpose in doing this was to keep him from becoming corrupted so it’s kind of funny to think about the religious zealots going up to John the Baptist and telling him that he’s supposed to be in church.  Ha.  I’m pretty sure that would be a rowdy service if he did.  Once God opened my eyes it became unbelievably hard for me to attend.

Bottom line, it’s the entire PROGRAM that churches present that I find offensive. The Coke machines, the junk food served, and the prayers prayed that assume, presume and even direct their congregants to mainstream doctors as an “ordained” way of living.  They know NOTHING about what their own Bible teaches about health and healing so they pray prayers for the wrong things for the wrong reasons as if GOD has to bring health the way we want, on our terms.  Again, this is NOT what the Bible teaches at all but makes GOD a puppet of sorts.  An example is their typical prayer for the doctor to “have wisdom and knowledge in their treatment…” but not recognizing these doctors aren’t trained in methods of “wisdom and knowledge”.  They use powerful chemicals that are chemically-based, profit-driven, with a track record of corruption, injury and death.  Why in the world would a shepherd direct their flock to this?  Because he doesn’t know any better and yes there’s a time and place for doctors.  They do very well at trauma and can give you a second chance but if you return to the way you were living in the first place there’s no wisdom in that.  “Go and sin no more or something worse may come upon you” was spoken several times by Jesus to those He healed.  Nope, we go right back to it…ignorant because nobody tells us any different. “As a dog returns to his vomit so does a fool return to his folly.”  Proverbs 26: 11

For the record, mainstream doctors do not take courses in nutrition and know nothing about natural methods such as herbal therapy used for thousands of years or other nature-based ideas.  The pastors don’t know how to keep their flock healthy so they aren’t teaching their congregants how to get well and stay well to avoid said pill-pushing doctors in the first place.  The other side of that story is that the two pastors I’ve heard of who knew and tried to teach their congregants a better way were rejected by the congregation and they risked losing their church/job so they backed off and continued with the pacifier-cleaning operation. The congregation rejected the “meat” being offered, preferring to stay on the milk, to use a Biblical picture.

A good story to illustrate how knowing some basics about health can save your life is drawn from my recent experience in October of 2016.  I touched the screen of my new cell phone and a pain shot up my arm and settled in for two hours before even beginning to let up.  It felt like a blood pressure cuff was on too tight.  Over the next few days and weeks that pain settled into my underarm and headed into my breast.  The pain then began to travel from the outside to the bottom and gaining in intensity and now the burning had begun as it headed up to the center.  Though I had changed my diet and lifestyle to one of Biblical living I was still living like the television and churches model by having a cell phone, Wi-Fi, a wireless alarm system and a toxic electric meter bringing sick currents into the home wiring. We had 23 cell towers and 112 antennas in a 4-mile radius of our home and while that may be shocking it’s way under the new norm of 400+ towers in a 4-mile radius and 300+ antennas. One beast tower was .25 miles from our home, IN our subdivision and needed nobody’s consent to do so because our government has failed at their jobs too.  Remember we live in a fallen world so it’s not wise to play with it or rely on it.  It was through this event that I learned that all this stuff is deadly and created a blog to help others see what I see now.  I’ll post the link for that blog at the end of this.

Had I not been the person that I am who took the journey that is the subject of the Getting Well God’s Way book I would not have known what to do and would’ve run to the doctor just like everyone else does.  So tell me. what you think they would’ve done? I would’ve been presenting myself in a building full of cell phones, microwave ovens, fluorescent lights, Wi-Fi, and cleaning chemicals and subjected to stressful information and maybe the removal of the breast and chemo and radiation.  Obviously, my body had it’s electrical system assaulted so none of these accepted and ordained therapies would’ve been appropriate and likely would’ve killed me.  I walked into my bedroom and looked out the windows at the sky and said “Father, I don’t have a clue what to do here.  This doesn’t look good.”  I was immediately reminded of a man who arrested his stage 4 prostate cancer that had spread to his bones and lungs I think it was.  I put his story in the Getting Well God’s Way book because the theory made sense to me.

     “Dr. Warburg has made it clear that the root cause of cancer is oxygen deficiency, which creates an acidic state in the human body. Dr Warburg also discovered that cancer cells are anaerobic (do not breathe oxygen) and cannot survive in the presence of high levels of oxygen, as found in an alkaline state.” https://sites.google.com/site/ganodermareview/the-root-cause-of-cancer

If you take a small dose of baking soda and molasses or maple syrup, the sugar will attract the cancer because sugar FEEDS cancer.  When the cancer cells come to eat the sugar they meet the baking soda which is like cyanide to a cancer cell.  It increases the oxygen and the baking soda is also an electron donor so it satisfies free radicals which cause inflammation and disease.  Free radicals are simply a group of molecules missing an electron.  You can also provide electron’s by being barefooted on the Earth (best done in unblended, natural fibers as described in Leviticus 19: 19).  Again, more on this in the book but clearly doctors can’t make money by recommending baking soda and molasses.  Chemo is actually a product the doctor can buy at wholesale and sell at retail so it’s a money-maker.

Of interest, when I went to get the link below here for Vern’s story, there’s a comment below the screen that reads, “BAKING SODA Kills CANCER, 2 of 2 Matches NC Dr 30 years ago. Cured his CANCER 5 days YT=VitoVerns CH” and sure enough that’s exactly what happened with me…on the 5th day everything went calm.  I then began reading Dr. Sircus’ book on Sodium Bicarbonate (aka baking soda) and taking baths in it with citric acid (all in the Getting Well God’s Way book) and have used it A LOT on my path to deal with this new challenge of being injured by technology.  Sadly, they buried my favorite uncle the same day my breast went calm.  He took the chemo route and wouldn’t listen to me. Can you see that there are things that an enlightened pastor and church can do and should be doing instead of routinely running to the doctor and taking whatever they offer?

This way is modeling a gospel that says you can be ignorant and uninformed BY CHOICE and that you needn’t be bothered with GOD’s standards of health and holiness. Further, it teaches that when the consequences show up you go to a doctor who also knows nothing about what the Bible teaches about health and healing who ONLY offers chemical-based therapies that can and do harm and are doing so at a historic level.  I’ve got about five scriptures flying through my head that say this is NOT GOD’s way and also imply and some state quite emphatically that this is a sign that you’re in allegiance with the world system.  “Be not conformed to this world but be ye therefore transformed by the renewing of your mind.”  Romans 12: 2  Let’s see “You have become like unfaithful wives having an illicit affair with the world.”  James 4: 4   “Do not abuse the body as is common among those who know nothing of God.”  in 1 Thessalonians 4: 5   “Your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit and was bought with a price so glorify GOD in your mortal body.”  Many, many more verses indicate clearly that our health and quality of life is a witness to an unbelieving world.  We aren’t supposed to be sickly, uninformed and undisciplined in our living!  (These verses and references are written from memory so I may have missed a word but surely you can see that this way is not okay with GOD.)

On this blog I wrote only one article thus far, which is a much more detailed version of this post if you care to read it (March 2017) and it shares a list of characteristics of a false religion derived from Zondervan’s Dictionary of Bible Themes and it lists the following attributes of a false religion:

  • it ensnares it adherents,
  • offers no help in time of need,
  • prevents people from finding the truth,
  • it devalues, degrades and defies,
  • leads to immorality,
  • enslaves,
  • receives the full force of God’s anger.

The modern church system now meets these criteria! The March 2017 blog post describes how that played out in my story. I was absolutely “ensnared” by their teachings and model and was now in trouble. They had no truth to offer me beyond their typical ways. NOTHING. And when I rejected their method after 18 months and a dozen doctors and canceled all my medical appointments and chased GOD down for answers I received soft rebuke and accusations that I must not have enough faith or had hidden sin, or their prayers would’ve worked. They were in complete denial about all the other sick people in their church who weren’t getting well either. Nope it had to be something wrong with me.

“The health of the flock is a reflection of the shepherd’s faithfulness.”

Read that again!  It’s a statement by Henry Blackaby, co-author of Experiencing God. Something to think about next time you’re listening to the prayer requests at church.  If you ever read the book GOD INSISTED that I write, your chin will likely be on the ground as you see how far we’ve strayed.  It’s dropped one grown man to his knees in tears and three more have cried after reading it.  They saw what GOD was showing them…they actually FELT IT.  Bottom line, GOD is not happy with what’s going on in His name.

Had I not had my nature and personality and if I had needed peer approval I absolutely would’ve been prevented from finding the truth. I had to machete through the social walls to get above the noise.  Fortunately many humans had failed me at that point in my life and I’d learned to dismiss much of their flawed reasoning.  I eventually had to leave this organized church system so I could hear GOD direct me and not put up with their judgmental and uninformed ways.  I knew they were off track because it didn’t feel right to go from human to human hoping they had my answers.  This was confirmed when I read Psalms 33: 22, “May your loving kindness and mercy O Lord be available to me in proportion to my waiting and hoping for you.”  Nope I was being taught to wait in the doctor’s office and hope he had my answers.  Well if God’s mercy is in proportion then I was waiting in the wrong office, placing my hope in the wrong vessel and likely offending GOD.

As it turns out it was the prepared/processed foods, Rx and over the counter drugs and the mercury fillings in my teeth. There was no hidden sin and no lack of faith. When they dismissed me for taking a different path they absolutely devalued me, degraded the importance of the journey GOD was taking me down and defied His authority, the truth of His word as well as logic, wisdom and understanding.

How does it lead to immorality? Well it directs the congregants to put more faith in the human medical system and thereby building it into a system that now has enough clout to FORCE injected substances into people and their children against their will.  This is being done by a group who’s been given complete legal immunity from any harm from these injections and the government NEVER DID THE SAFETY STUDIES over a 30-year period that were the condition of this legal immunity.  Every single manufacturer has plead guilty to fraud, submitting fake data to the FDA, tampering with test samples, bribing doctors, deception and more yet they’re still in business.  One of them actually held a study in a very poor country where they falsified parental authorizations and fourteen babies died.  Instead of fourteen counts of murder they were fined $100,000.

This “ordained by the churches” industry/system created an opiate epidemic that was recently killing 128 people a day and has wrecked many lives and broken many families.  Of interest is that I broke my back in 1994 and had another fall 18 months later.  I spent a year in a torso brace and a knee brace but quickly got off of all pain meds because I understood that they will not heal me.  Again, I grabbed on to GOD and He taught me how to heal my body.  I was in crippling pain for 11 years but today you can barely detect a limp unless I’m going upstairs.  My x-rays showed me to be a paraplegic but GOD had different plans. When I came out of my ordeal the opiate epidemic was on the rise.  GOD has ways we know not of but He will reveal them if we move closer to Him.  The churches need to learn these ways and stop this unholy reliance upon a system steeped in criminality.  Yes, they do SOME good things but once your eyes are opened and you’re informed you also see the evil agendas being moved forward through this system that is statistically almost wholly sustained by professing Christians!

Ephesians 5: 11 says “Have nothing to do with evil but rather expose it.” 

Our consumer support thereby empowers evil which is being seen clearly in a tyrannical medical system that has now infected our politics, our children’s minds, our schools, our news media, our entertainment, our sciences….AND OUR CHURCHES!  This evil goes on and is progressing in it’s deployment because of mainstream Christianity’s support of this system.  It teaches the flock to trust more in the human medical system  than in the GOD they profess to love, to take the Rx drugs that kill and cause disease, and don’t bother with the root issues such as diet, lifestyle, relationships and a healthy electrical environment.  “Be sober, be vigilant…”  and “Wise as a snake, harmless as a dove” comes to mind.  Nope….ignorant, uninformed, undisciplined, comfort-driven is where the flock is now and I just can’t be part of that.  It’s terribly painful to watch.

It enslaves because it gets the adherents addicted to this way of thinking and living and then they can’t break out and TRUST GOD when they need to. When a doctor says “cancer” they completely fall apart and do whatever he tells them and most of them die from doing so.  They don’t have the courage, nature or personality to stare down the organized church; their social group.  There’s a scripture in Philippians that speaks of the people whose GOD is their belly and who glory in their shame, it’s about them letting their appetite dictate their lifestyle and how this way of living…well, the adherents are referred to as “enemies of the cross of Christ.”

This ENTIRE picture cumulatively is presenting a new gospel in that it says “Eat what you want. Don’t be informed. Don’t bother with self-discipline…just do whatever you want and when the consequences show up we’ll pray a prayer and GOD will make all the consequences go away because He loves you and if He doesn’t then there must be something wrong with you….not us.” Congregants are victimized by their lack of knowledge AND NOW….THE PEOPLE ACTUALLY PREFER TO BE IGNORANT and get offended if anyone suggests another way.

It also models a life that says we don’t need to be set apart from the world and that our body is not the temple of the Holy Spirit….it’s an amusement park…have fun. And then there’s this verse which makes it very clear that I am NOT to have anything to do with a false religion calling itself a church in 2 John 1: 10 below.

Now that the churches have added cell towers and Wi-Fi to their list of amenities, microwaving their congregants just like the world system led them to do, I certainly won’t be going.  We have strayed very far from GOD and His Ways.  Did you know that your cell phone is a microwave radio?  That Wi-Fi is 245 BILLION cycles per second of microwave radiation being pumped throughout your home and office and your kids schools? What kind of electric meter do you have on your home and what do you know about it?  Uh huh….better stay close to the true GOD and not allow some pastor with a nice smile and a feel-good message to lower GOD’s standards.  When/if you find you don’t have enough “oil” in your lamp and the Bridegroom has closed the door, where will that pastor be then?

The biggest single issue that happens in churches is the reality of a “pack mentality.”  If GOD sends in a messenger with a disruptive-to-their-traditions or a merely unpopular message from GOD, THE GROUP MENTALITY will most often reject it…because they feel they have the collective power, and they’re right.  It doesn’t mean they should reject it, especially if they truly seek to have the “heart and mind of Christ”, but it’s more likely than not because the churches have become comfort-driven, social clubs negotiating compromises with GOD’s standards.  There’s a “we’re doing good enough” standard so they truly aren’t open to new revelations especially if they will require something more of them.  Well, I can assure you from personal experience that the closer you get to GOD the more invasive His holiness becomes on our mediocre lives.  So, are you going to just stay at arm’s length from Him?  Remember Revelation 3: 16 that warns about being lukewarm in your walk…it says He will vomit us out of His mouth.  I’d say it’s better to err on the side of zeal and taking responsibility for your health, a clear part of your testimony, should be a priority in that effort.

I hope people wake up and repent in time….You simply can’t slap a plastic fish and good intentions on a carnal lifestyle and deem it good enough to be called “Christianity.” We don’t get to set the standards, we are to attain to mature in our walk and invite and allow more and more of GOD to invade our lives.

  “So come on, let’s leave the preschool fingerpainting exercises on Christ and get on with the grand work of art. Grow up in Christ. The basic foundational truths are in place: turning your back on “salvation by self-help” and turning in trust toward God; baptismal instructions; laying on of hands; resurrection of the dead; eternal judgment. God helping us, we’ll stay true to all that. But there’s so much more.  Let’s get on with it!” Hebrews 6: 1-3 The Message

“Knowing the correct password—saying ‘Master, Master,’ for instance—isn’t going to get you anywhere with me. What is required is serious obediencedoing what my Father wills. I can see it now—at the Final Judgment thousands strutting up to me and saying, ‘Master, we preached the Message, we bashed the demons, our God-sponsored projects had everyone talking.’ And do you know what I am going to say? ‘You missed the boat. All you did was use me to make yourselves important. You don’t impress me one bit. You’re out of here.’

I could go on and on and on and did in the book GOD INSISTED that I write for you.  You’ll be shocked at what you learn.  Scroll through this blog and read the readers comments I posted.  I paid a heavy personal price for walking this out and I guess I still am, now that I think about it, but I owed Him a big debt and He placed an inner fire inside of me.  No matter what was taken or threatened to be taken, if I continued swimming against the flow, I kept writing.  It took 21 years to get it finished.  I hope you’ll read and share it with your friends and family and give serious and prayerful consideration to who and what you’re supporting in word, presence and deed that you not be considered “a partner in their evil work”.  The Truth can be neutralized if you’re supporting the wrong messengers.

Remember, the Holy Spirit will not wrestle with us forever.

Has the “lived out” version of modern Christianity BECOME a False Religion?


The best way to answer that is to examine the evidence and to look at scripture so let’s take a little stroll.

My perspective here is heavily influenced by my story of becoming very ill shortly after giving birth to my first and only child. I did as the modern church model taught me and went forward for prayer and began seeing doctors. The leadership prayed the standard prayer asking God to “give the doctors wisdom in their diagnosis and treatment… Amen.” In the next 18 months, I saw 11 or 12 doctors who through a process that wreaked of flawed logic, eventually named my numerous diseases.  They had no solutions other than prescription drugs to manage my “inevitable” decline.  “Incurable” was the consensus.

Before we begin:  This is my story.  I am not recommending that anyone cancel medical tests or abandon their medical relationships or medication.  I’m simply sharing MY STORY. There are plenty of natural health practitioners who can guide you to lifestyle changes and help you reduce your medication.  I didn’t have many options and wasn’t on any medication so I could make some choices you may not be able to make, unaided.  You might choose to read my 300+ page book titled, Getting Well God’s Way, available on the GettingWellGodsWay.com website and on Amazon.com (links at the bottom of this post) while you look for a reputable natural health practitioner and start learning the basic insights on how to care for your body.

First, I had lots of people pray over me and even watched my husband receive a supernatural healing to 3 cracked vertebrae by an Asian man who came through the local churches for a while. I received no healing.  I didn’t understand why God would heal some and not others but the Christians were happy to suggest that I must have some hidden sin that kept me from God’s favor. (John 9:2) I knew that wasn’t true and continued to seek answers. I decided the doctor to doctor search wasn’t in line with my actual, personal beliefs. By demonstration it indicated that I “trusted in, relied on, and had confidence in” humans and a human system.  (Zondervan’s Amplified Bible expounds on the word “believe” in this way consistently.)

Very few humans had performed well in my life thus far so going from human to human in search of answers wasn’t really in line with my true beliefs, which is very important to getting well.  It wasn’t MY beliefs I was following as much as it was just the way the modern culture and churches had adopted and I followed along because I didn’t know any better.  Over time it became clear that this way was failing and that I needed God’s help. I believed with my whole being that He could help me if I just knew how to get that to happen.  I began to truly consider my authentic beliefs, separated from the model, and realized that I also believed that running from doctor to doctor was likely offensive to God. Sure enough I found lots of scriptures condemning human reliance and promising a curse for those doing so. One verse Psalms 33:22 in the Amplified version really got my attention.  It reads “Let Your mercy and loving-kindness, O Lord, be upon us, in proportion to our waiting and hoping for You.”  Those words “in proportion” seemed to jump off the page at me and I realized the cultural/church model I’d been following, although surrounded in prayer and good intentions, had me waiting for doctors and hoping they had my answers in a lot greater proportion than the waiting on and hoping in God.  In fact, going from human to human seemed random and self-reliant at best.  I wanted to change the priority of my seeking and START WITH GOD instead of doing what the culture taught and dragging God along with me.  It made sense to stop everything and start over with a different emphasis.  I wanted God to direct my steps which would then seem like my reliance was in the right place and my follow-through would then be an act of obedience. So, I canceled several tests and the follow-up medical appointments and slid down the kitchen wall and cried.  It was a cry of surrender, repentance, relinquishment, and an appeal for God’s help.

Six months passed without any profound revelation but I maintained my stance. Although my health had continued to decline that was true even with a dozen doctors involved so I continued my course.  My faith was now solely invested in God and I was waiting and hoping solely for Him.  If that “in proportion” thing was right then I wanted 100% of my “waiting and hoping” to be invested in God so that He would 100% show up on my behalf.  Sure enough I had a profound encounter with God during a prayer six months after I canceled all my medical appointments.  I received the most amazing hug I’ve ever had in my life and heard a voice say “Everything’s going to be okay but you have to do exactly what I tell you to do.  Do you understand?”  I was then led to a book on my kitchen shelf, which was the first of many books about regaining my health that I’d read in the next few years.  I was then led to clean out my pantry, refrigerator, and medicine cabinet of all man made, chemically-laden products.

I became keenly aware of an Unseen Presence that seemed so close that I could feel It’s breath on my neck and hear guidance about more ways I needed to change my life.  I was inspired to read incessantly and made definitive changes to my lifestyle. I eventually reversed my Hashimoto’s Autoimmune Disease, my Advanced Cervical Degenerative Disc Disease, my all-seasons battle with allergies, recurrent infections, bursitis, intestinal woes, hormone issues and more.  I heard this Loving Presence gently scold me “…For goodness sake girl care about what you put in your body and what it does to you. Don’t just eat anything you find on the store shelves. This is a fallen world.  They have different standards than I do for you.” I got a horrific, wonderful, life-shaking education while gathering less and less respect for human “institutions” who should’ve known better and done better.

God made the point that there was no reason for Him to heal someone if they didn’t know what was making them sick.  “If they’re healed and return to the same diet, lifestyle, relationships, and environment that produced disease in the first place, they will only become sick again.  Remember ‘My people perish for lack of knowledge.'”  I spent the next few years immersed in reading and learning how many ways we’re making ourselves sick that cannot be prayed away or reversed with a drug. It takes knowledge now to stay healthy; knowledge beyond what a pharmaceutically-trained medical doctor has and even beyond the modern pastors’ ability to pray an effective prayer. They can’t teach what they don’t know so the flock suffers, the culture suffers, and so does the testimony of Christianity.

I had no idea that doctors didn’t take classes in nutrition; that they only study diseases, drugs and surgery.  If your condition is due to something you’re doing to yourself isn’t it a little silly to just pop a pill instead of determining the cause and addressing that? And if the pastor/shepherd has no relevant knowledge how can they even hope to help their flock?  In fact, they have farmed-out the care of their own flock to a system of healing that’s completely void of wisdom and understanding and puts God in a secondary position.

In time, God taught me that John was injured and needed a Divine healing and my circumstances required me to be educated about my condition. In my case, it was the FDA-approved mercury amalgam fillings in my teeth that were creating an autoimmune disease and a rampant decline in my health.  Beyond questioning why this practice is still allowed while we know that mercury is one of the most toxic substances on the planet, I also learned that some people have genes that keep them from being able to process mercury and other toxins as easily as others.  Remember the Mad Hatter?  Back in the 19th century felts used to make hats were preserved with mercury.  Those working in this occupation along with some who merely wore the hats developed Mad Hatter Syndrome and yet, it’s still used.  I then learned that the proper authorities won’t admit this and strongly discourage any dentists from acknowledging this to avoid liability.  I further learned that our government oversight agencies had become wrought with fraud in the food and drug arena and there are major cover-ups and corruption; this was just one of many human failures.

It wasn’t hidden sin, it wasn’t incurable, and no amount of prescription pills, nor prayers so limited that they only acknowledged the modern pharmaceutical method was going to fix me! I had to have them removed and replaced by a dentist trained in this highly toxic procedure and then I spent over a year doing all kinds of detox methods. Although I’m no longer sick this is a heavy metal that stores in organs and bones so it’s a relevant consideration in my health now and can make me more vulnerable to other problems.

Mainstream medicine and the FDA’s “it’s perfectly safe” turns out wasn’t quite true.  It isn’t much of a surprise that humans would be capable of this.  Jesus told us that we’re being sent in as sheep among wolves, that there’s an enemy here we should be looking for, and how we need to remain set apart seeking God and His ways.  We were warned! What was surprising is that the modern church has fallen fully into compliance with this flawed model and even formed an unholy reliance upon it to the exclusion of wisdom, knowledge, understanding, and insight.

One day my car battery wouldn’t start and my husband poured a soft drink on the battery connectors.  As I watched it eating the corrosion down to shiny metal I heard God ask, “Now tell me again why you’ll pour that over ice and drink it.”  I felt like an idiot. It was these moments that made me realize we’d lost our common sense as the churches now almost all have Coke machines on their campus just like the culture at large.  We have lapsed into a cultural coma where we mindlessly do whatever standard the television and status quo dictates instead of seeking God’s ways. Again, we are doing this in direct conflict to biblical teaching.

A few years into my repentance I would need this same sole reliance on God’s leading after I fell twelve feet from an unrailed bridge into a shallow river and broke my spine.  My x-rays showed I was a paraplegic but God wasn’t surprised by this event.  In fact, there was a visitation by an angelic light nine months earlier which caused a different outcome and was even recorded in a journal. I was further injured 18 months later and again this event was preceded by a word of knowledge shared with my then husband.  I was in horrendous pain for most of 11 years. Again, I grabbed onto God and sought guidance.  As God walked me through the methods and resources to truly heal my body I watched in horror as this pharmaceutically-minded culture turned many pain patients into full blown pharmaceutical junkies, which has now evolved into a historic opiate addiction issue in the culture.  Those “pain clinics” are essentially legal drug dealers, not healers.

Both circumstances of illness and injury meant that I had to completely leave the beaten path to get well and boy are there social penalties for doing so, even in the churches! As I read about soft drinks being used as a solvent to clean blood from highways and how the intense acidity level in these drinks radically shifts the pH of the blood out of a healthy range it was obvious to me that this was a disrespectful way to treat my body which is in fact a gift from God and the temple of the Holy Spirit. I found lots of scriptures telling me that there were innate consequences and that I would reap what I sowed. There was no provision that said, “Unless you know who Jesus is.”  Satan knows who Jesus is “and trembles.”  We don’t even do that!  In fact, it’s so strongly worded in scripture that it seems we have a greater responsibility to live a lifestyle based on wisdom, discipline, knowledge, and understanding because we claim to know Jesus Christ. I saw nothing to substantiate what I saw being done inside of modern Christianity.  As I passed the Coke machines at the churches and saw the junk food passed out at every social it became clear that one of us was wrong.  I understood what God was showing me. What I didn’t understand or expect was the hostile rebellion I’d receive from other Christians. They wanted nothing to do with this message or my conviction that this should be part of our walk of faith, individually and corporately.  I saw no variation in the churches we attended over many years. They all had this same limited approach to health and healing. Healing was always presented as if it was something that would be prescribed by a doctor or prayed in by a pastor as if the benefactor had no responsibility in the matter.

Sadly, not one piece of information I needed to get well came through mainstream medicine and not one thing I needed to do to get well was covered by insurance.  The same is true of the church.  I laugh at this culture now demanding that everyone have affordable access to this medical system that has no answers in 70 to 80% of the cases. They only pay for Rx drugs and surgery and quite apparently aren’t interested in other methods of getting people well, which should give you a clue about a patient’s true value and their intentions.

Likely the best resource I own is a Zondervan’s Dictionary of Bible Themes.   It lists ideas and themes by topic and then gives scripture references to back up the point of view presented. After going through the tumultuous experience of getting well outside of cultural norms I have an awareness I cannot tame.  The level of damage being done to the testimony of Christianity is overwhelming to me.  Christianity is a collective!  We may each be having our own experience but as a group we can and should have a profound impact on the culture around us.  When I look at the disease statistics today and listen to the prayer requests at churches it’s clear to me that the world has had a much greater impact on Christianity than Christianity has had on the world!

So, I recently looked up false religion in that dictionary and it lists the following attributes:

  • it ensnares it adherents,
  • offers no help in time of need,
  • prevents people from finding the truth,
  • it devalues, degrades and defies,
  • leads to immorality,
  • enslaves,
  • receives the full force of God’s anger.

First, when the modern churches are bringing Coke machines and junk food into the church they are ordaining them as an approved lifestyle. These manmade products are full of chemicals and without question do harm to the physical body.  Junk food wasn’t addressed in scripture because it didn’t exist when the Bible was written.  It would however fall under the doctrine of wisdom versus foolishness and certainly would fall under the care of our body which is the temple of the Holy Spirit, which is sacred.

Instead of being taught God’s way to live I was being shown a lived-out model of Christianity that taught that I can eat and drink anything I want and when the consequences of that behavior showed up that I could go to the pastor/shepherd/leadership and they would pray a magic prayer for the medical doctors to essentially know which pill to give me.  The same doctors who have never taken a course in nutrition, usually have a soft drink machine outside of their office, and have participated in selling a lie that pills produce health.  At no point was I confronted with any truth that could change the course I was on.  In fact if I were a timid and compliant person who needed the approval of others, I’m pretty sure I’d have suffered horribly and died prematurely for trusting in, relying on, and having confidence in these erroneous, culturally-conformed teachings that have invaded the modern church. I watch the many who are in fact “ensnared” by their lack of knowledge and their inability to think outside of typical dogma.

Second, by praying a prayer that only acknowledges mainstream medical doctors the sick person is encouraged towards mainstream medical doctors to the exclusion of any other methods that might actually bring some help!  Everyone acts like mainstream medicine is the only option.  It’s not!  There’s a lot of amazing natural health practitioners out there but insurance won’t pay for their services.  There’s a growing number of traditionally-trained doctors who are going into natural methods but you’ll generally have to pay cash because the insurance companies won’t reimburse what actually makes people well.  It’s one method to secure the patron will only come to you, even if their remedies aren’t the solution.  It’s been so entrenched that people can’t think outside of this model.  They’ve been trained by the television which sells 80% of their advertising to pharmaceutical drug manufacturers so they are no longer a source of truth…and again the churches have ordained this model to the detriment of the nation and again, the testimony of Christianity has been damaged.  I now haven’t been to a mainstream medical doctor for illness since 1989.  Can you imagine if most of professing Christians had this same testimony?  Yes, these teachings offered me no help in my time of need.

Again, I will stress that the only reason I was able to break out of the group-think is because I learned long ago not to trust in humans and I was being immersed in an experience that showed me what was possible when my faith (in God) was rightly directed.  As I went through this journey I was shunned, made to feel tolerated, and basically I was being punished socially for taking a different path.  Most people would’ve caved in and gone along to get along.  I’m much more invested in truth but want you to see that YES, this way, would absolutely prevent many from finding the truth and insights I share in the 300+ page book, Getting Well God’s Way.

Devalues, degrades and defies?

Have you ever stopped to imagine what it might be like to be a child of royalty? Wouldn’t you imagine that the idea that  “You can’t act like that, you are part of the Royal Family…” is a relevant topic.  What God shared with me is that I am in fact a “child of The King” and certain trashy foods that undermine my health is not wise or appropriate for who I am.  To treat the human body, this temple of the Holy Spirit, as if it matters not what we eat and drink and how we live “devalues” and “degrades” it.  To bring Coke machines and junk food to the church campus presents a doctrine by model that says we aren’t the children of The King, just commoners.  It’s degraded or down-graded in importance, compared to how God sees it!  The final blow is that these teachings “defy” so I went to look it up and one of the examples is “defies authority.”  In this case, I take that to mean that we are in defiance of God, His authority, and His ways of wisdom, knowledge, understanding WHILE accepting the ways of the world, the way of foolishness, the way of ignorance and putting His name on it.  We have essentially conformed Him to the image of the god we want instead of worshiping Him on His terms.

Does it lead to immorality?  Well, synonyms for immorality are wicked, depraved, corrupt, and dishonest so let’s see if this modern church model has taken us there.  In my view, when you hold yourself out as a pastor, teacher, shepherd, a church, and then teach people that they can eat and drink anything they want and have no lifestyle that resembles wisdom, discipline, and understanding in direct contrast to scriptural teaching this is wicked, depraved, corrupt, and dishonest.  Beyond that, it creates statistics that are quite an indictment against the adherents belief system.  Sources cited in my book, Getting Well God’s Way, reveal that 73 to 88% of people in the US identify themselves as “Christians” so whatever “Christians” believe” and DO establishes the quality of the entire culture.  It’s just a numbers thing.  If they all eat and drink health-destroying food products and believe the lie that a pill will erase the consequences, then the culture is sickly and the pill-pushers get rich off the deception and the congregants are incapable of taking care of themselves; they’re dependent victims.  If modern Christians decide to live the true teachings of their Bible and get well according to God’s ways then that too would establish a quality in the culture.

So let’s see where we are:

Most recently the 2014 Social Index Report shows the US to be in last place for life expectancy among 70 other economically-equal countries. Our infant mortality rate is worse than Cuba and the disease statistics are going through the roof.

The US makes up 5% of the global population and consumes 70% of the global market of pharmaceutical drugs.  (If drugs worked we should be 70% healthier than the rest of the world it seems.)  So if 73 to 88% of the US claims they are Christians and yet we consume 70% of the pharmaceutical drug market, that indicates quite clearly that the Christians are sustaining the pharmaceutical drug market!

The most disturbing statistic is that the Baby Boomers are the largest group to ever go through the Medicare system and people are sicker than they’ve ever been.  Nobody knows how to get well or stay well because they all bought into the pill-for-every-ill idea and now they’re just lazy and uninformed about getting well and staying well.  There is no money set aside for this expense and it’s estimated to be ten times our national debt! ($190 TRILLION)  

Quite ironically, it appears we are going to go over a financial cliff from self-indulgence and human reliance while ignoring any personal responsibility or responsibility for the testimony of TRUE Christianity!  You might want to stop and think about how God’s going to view this since Christianity was supposed to be the bearers of light to show others the way.  Again, according to Zondervan’s Dictionary of Bible Themes “Faithlessness is equal to disobedience.”

By spending so much money in the pharmaceutical industry consumers have created a system that is corrupting our health, our economy, our government, true science, our media, our environment, and more.  Fraud, deception, and now “medical kidnapping” incidents are happening at an alarming level so they can test drugs on kids in the CPS system, which only requires one signature.  (http://medicalkidnap.com) One story in my files happened in Pflugerville, Texas, a neighboring suburb.  The most famous may have been the Jennifer Peltier case but it’s more widespread and less talked about.  Reportedly, Arizona’s CPS system has doubled it’s child capture rate for the last two consecutive years.  There’s more going on here than you know; much more.

“Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour.” I Peter 5:8

As well, in an 18 month period between July of 2015 and December of 2016, I think the last count was nearing 60+ holistic doctors that have died under mysterious circumstances, and our pharmaceutically-supported media is silent.  Reportedly they found disturbing ingredients in vaccines; ingredients known to cause cancer and to keep the body from utilizing Vitamin D, which essentially cripples your immune system.  Some of these doctors were getting patients well and one rumor suggested that one of the doctors was about to go public before his office was visited by the government and the next day he was found floating in a river with a gunshot wound to his chest.

“Absolute power corrupts absolutely.”

Massive fraud has been documented by a lead scientist whistleblower at the CDC with 10,000 supporting documents!  Did you hear that?  The LEAD SCIENTIST in a study is coming forward with evidence of corruption in the vaccine oversight agency and one-half of our children will be injured by these practices and our government will not subpoena him.  You can watch the documentary detailing this at http://Vaxxed.com.  So, who will serve in our military when half of our children are disabled?  Who will pay to take care of these severely damaged adults after their parents pass away? This one subject alone is overwhelming but unavoidably must be dealt with and yet the Body of Christ is uninformed and unconcerned, to say the least.

“The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.”

The Bible tells us in Ephesians 5:11 that we are to have nothing to do with evil but are to expose it.  Instead, the post-pharmaceutical age of churches have ordained it’s use to the exclusion of their own teachings, and to the exclusion of wisdom and common sense.  The modern churches have conformed completely to the culture when Romans 12:2 reads “Do not be conformed to this world….”

I’d say the vast portion of our culture is in fact enslaved.  They can’t get out of the cycle without being taught how to take care of their body and from what I’ve seen the modern church has no knowledge and thus far hasn’t been interested in teaching them.  We are facing a $190 Trillion-dollar expense with no money set aside so I’d say the next few generations are enslaved, if we survive what’s ahead.

It’s also a form of brainwashing as people are completely mindless in their pursuit of health and healing in this model.  They get a symptom, go forward for prayer,  and run to the doctor.  They go get a pill and go back to the same lifestyle and environment that produced the issues in the first place.  “Go and sin no more or something worse may come upon you” indicates the need to change something or identify the root cause! No consideration is given to what they may be doing to accelerate dis-ease and they receive no instruction;  just hand-holding and well-meaning looks of concern.  How sad!

Over the years I’ve had modern Christians say “My spirit is the part going to heaven, not my body…  You shouldn’t judge people for what they eat…  They’re nice people…”  First of all that is not what the Bible teaches. In The Message version of the Bible I Corinthians 6:19b reads, “The physical part of you is not some piece of property belonging to the spiritual part of you.  God owns the whole works…so let people see God in and through your body…”  There are many more verses; one even states that people who put their fleshly appetite as a higher priority than God “are enemies of the cross of Christ.”  It’s all in the book I wrote.

Also, I do not purport to judge a person’s soul; that’s God’s job but we are given the duty to discern or qualify good from evil and wisdom versus foolishness in ourselves and others; judgment is required in order to do that.

Next, God doesn’t care how nice we are if we are deluded, sickly, supporting evil, and investing our trust in human institutions over and above Him, especially while providing a bad testimony of Christianity to the world.  Christians need to remember that Hezekiah destroyed the bronze serpent because it had become an object of worship just like the mainstream medical system of today.

Since repenting of my former way and conforming to God’s ways I have not needed a medical doctor for illness, since 1989.  When I was injured not only was I grateful for their surgical skills but also for the knowledge God gave me which vastly accelerated my healing.  I had nurses from three floors coming to meet me as the rumors spread about my body’s healing abilities.  I was happy to testify about the God that taught me the importance of self-care as a means of worship and honor to my Creator.  I’m still having to differentiate myself from this modern Christianity and have even seen an atheist client convert from hearing my stories.  She understood the need for a God that would teach, engage, and even require diligence of those who profess to love Him.  “If you love me keep my commandments.” Meanwhile pastors at the modern churches seem too intimidated to require much of their congregants.  They just clean the pacifiers and offer them a soft drink, a sincere conversation, and a heartfelt prayer.  They never see the bigger picture it seems.  How sad that this witness has been rejected in favor of such carnal desires but then He did say “even the very elect” will be fooled.

If you find this information shocking that’s a barometer on how IN the world you are. Your lack of knowledge is an indictment about your priorities in life.  The state of this “Christian Nation’s” health is an indictment on Christianity’s failure and conformity to a foolish and reckless world. God is calling The True Church to WAKE UP and “come out of her.”  Will they answer?

Shepherds…. According to Henry Blackaby, author of Created to Be God’s Friend, Experiencing God, and a notable Christian educator and elder…. you are responsible for the character and health of your flock and before God you will answer for the impact, or lack thereof, on the culture.

Believer’s…You will not escape by blaming the pastors.

Remember, “Not all who say Lord, Lord will enter the kingdom of heaven…”

The words sorcery, witchraft, and pharmakeia (the use of drugs, medicines, or spells) same, same.  Referenced in Strong’s Concordance – 5331)  With this in mind let’s read Revelations 18:23

“And the light of a candle shall shine no more at all in thee; and the voice of the bridegroom and of the bride shall be heard no more at all in thee: for thy merchants were the great men of earth; for by thy sorceries were all nations deceived.”

One final comment.  I found a scripture 2 Timothy 2: 3-5 ends with “…their conduct nullifies their claims of faith.”  It seriously is about what we DO.  This way is not of God!


I strongly suggest you go spend a few minutes cruising the rest of this blog to see what God’s been up to over the last few years.  I need to update at least one testimonial but you’ll get the point.

You can order a signed copy of the book on the website by clicking on the link below: https://GettingWellGodsWay.com. 

It’s also available on Amazon in paperback by clicking on the link below: https://www.amazon.com/Getting-Well-Gods-Kathy-Bates/dp/1508839514/ref=cm_cr_arp_d_product_top?ie=UTF8  

Please note that I am offering it on Kindle under protest because I don’t think screen time is a good idea when you have the option to avoid it.  It’s also the kind of book that people like to wag around and write in and dog ear the pages.  I recently updated the manuscript to reflect a recent health issue from exposure to electromagnetic fields. It was yet another act of God saying “I’m going to interrupt your life and show you something that I need you humans to see.”  Again, He walked me through an education about our unprecedented use of electronics with little understanding about what it’s doing to our health.  Because the human body is bio-electric it will attract electric fields which is a reason we ground our homes and buildings.  Some balk at this idea for reasons that amuse me.  It’s just common sense after you shock someone when static electricity builds up.  Some equipment won’t work unless properly grounded. As it turns out that mercury that was put in my teeth that caused autoimmune disease makes me even more of an “antenna” according to most sources so I’m having to learn how to address yet another issue from human error. Our body is not grounded since we are no longer connected to the Earth’s protective field in our daily lives and many, many diseases are originating due to this “dirty” electrical environment.

     Humanity is bringing new forms of very dense MANMADE energies into our living environment with reckless abandon and from what I’ve seen in the food and drug arena it’s clear that this will be yet another area for devastating consequences but it’s good for business if you’re in mainstream medicine.  It’s this issue that brings in a true visceral sense of the Holy Spirit grieving.  Every time I think about what I’m learning God brings my attention to the knowledge that they’re even installing toxic electrical equipment, such as the alarm system box in baby’s rooms, Wifi, and Smart Meters on the neighboring wall without questioning anything.  So it wasn’t really a shock to hear a microwave weapons expert for the Royal Navy talk about crib death from EMF (electromagnetic fields) exposure; proving yet again that running to a doctor can be fruitless and dangerous as the real threat is undiscovered.

I created another blog to share the insights of this leg of the journey.  You should go spend some time there, FOLLOW both blogs and you’ll be able to see where this story goes from here.  A podcast seems likely in the near future so come up beside me and learn how you might help GOD get his message out. The shortened version of this blog page title is NoATT.blog Click on the link below:  http://neighborsorganizingagainsttrespassingtechnology.blog

We are living in a different world.  Once you understand that most of our illnesses are due to our lifestyle and environment then you’ll understand why taking a pill won’t fix it. Give glory to God by getting well!  Your health is part of your testimony and the collective testimony of Christianity could be vastly improved if they’d develop “health” and live that in contrast to the established ways of the world where the wrong ideas are being promoted and sustained.

I pray you’ll feel compelled to read the book God had me write.  The Body of Christ has in fact drifted off into a false religion.  It’s as inappropriate as dressing up like a cop.  The church isn’t supposed to just look like a lighthouse in a storm, it’s supposed to be one, to have answers, wisdom, knowledge….and yet, it turns out to be a mirage in cases of physical health issues.  It’s very sad compared to what could be.

May God have mercy on us as we seek to correct our path.



What’s happened since the book was published.

    Screenshot (1408)

God asked me to write a book in the summer of 1992 and I finally published it.  It took 21 years to live through the challenges and get it written. I could never be absolutely certain that it was God who asked for it to be written and not my own compulsion until I published, witnessed, and documented what has happened since it went live.

The first reader sent me a private message on Facebook. It read, “Your book is well-written, intriguing, informative, comforting, alarming, and important.”  That was my first clue that it had met the intended goal but she was my cousin so I discounted it accordingly.  Though now, years later, I see it completely woke her up and changed her life.  At the time, I wasn’t sure.  I was exhausted, broke, and frankly I was a little angry at what this story had required of me; what it cost me!  When I finished it I held the laptop up and told GOD exactly that and said “If anything happens with it from here it will be because YOU caused it.”  I NEEDED TO SEE THAT IT WAS IN FACT HIM, WHO COMMISSIONED THIS BOOK!

In the book I wrote about a non-profit health insurance ministry that operates as health insurance, meets Obamacare requirements, is faith-based and cheaper than any other insurance I ever compared it to.  The members share the costs of other members claims to a certain point ($5000 I think) , and then a AAA rated insurance company kicks in up to a million dollars as I recall.  Anyway, there is one aspect of this insurance that I adamantly take issue with and it’s the requirement that I have an affidavit signed by a pastor that says I’m active in church, don’t smoke, and only drink in moderation.  Because this book is my story of how the typical church teachings failed me miserably in my efforts to get well I don’t think it’s appropriate to ask this of me or anyone, until the modern church comes out of this worldly way perhaps.  Many, I should actually write “most” pastors have junk-filled vending machines on their church property, serve foods that undermine health and have no clue how to restore health or what the bible even teaches about the subject, and routinely steer their congregants to Rx-drug pushing doctors who also have no clue how to get people well.  We’ve all been betrayed and have invested heavily in the idea that prescription drugs can replace a lifestyle of wisdom and self-discipline.  “My people perish for lack of knowledge.” Remember that verse?

Two days before publishing the book on Amazon.com an ad came across my Facebook page for a company offering a similar product and they don’t require this affidavit.  I signed up for more information on their website, did some more research, found a few more companies, added a few more pages to the manuscript, and published the book.

Two days after publication a woman called me from Ohio who works with this second company asking if I needed more information.  I told her that I can’t afford health insurance of any kind and that I hadn’t been to a mainstream doctor for illness since 1989 so in my view, it’s a luxury that will have to wait. “But I did put your company’s information in the book I just published.” She asked about the book and an immediate bond formed and she ordered the book while we were on the phone. Four days passed and she wrote an email but called before I even read it.  “The book arrived two days early.  It’s beautiful and much bigger than I expected, VERY impressive. Does Dr. Tenpenny know she’s in your book? She’s about to, she’s my neighbor!”

She began reading the book and within a week was writing back, “Wow, amazing insights.”  At the same time other people were starting to contact me about their reading experience. One man told me that reading the preface and the last page dropped him to his knees in tears.  It was then that I realized that everything I’d hoped for could actually be starting to happen.

This journey has been incredibly hard, and filled with intense pain on many levels. My 25 year marriage didn’t survive it.  When Satan’s lies are about to be exposed and the truth is going to set people free, he comes with relentless force. Anyone who wasn’t buckled down got shaken loose.  My now ex, disconnected from God, turned our only daughter against me and they have jointly withheld a grandchild that I raised for the first 19 months of her life. Two more have been born that I’ve never met. In every sense of the word this calling has required me to choose between my family and obeying God’s call. All I could do is endure and hope that all the rampant destruction has a greater purpose than anything material I could hope to acquire on this planet.

One year after leaving the toxic family situation God began shutting down a small business. I had to sell my car, move in with my mother, and eventually sold almost every possession I had because God demanded that I “Finish the book.” I grieved and cried and many days I couldn’t even get out of bed for most of 3.5 years, while I wrote. This was happening while my ex was earning a record income, buying a house on the water in Corpus Christi, TX, upgrading the boat he had, and enjoying our grandkids.

When the calls began coming in, the private messages on Facebook, and the personal accounts of people crying, and dropping to their knees I knew that God’s anointing was on the book. So I called Nancy in Ohio as I felt GOD nudging me to go meet her.

The next part won’t make as much sense unless I share that back in 2001 a phenomenon began in my life in that the clocks started becoming somewhat animated.  I began seeing 2:22 and 4:44 and 1:11 more than usual.  My now ex told me I was just looking at the clock too often.  But the very next time we got in the truck, when he turned on the key it was 1:11 and I pointed that out saying, “See? It’s like that.”  Over the years it has continued and began to expand to where it was 5:27 (5 + 2 = 7) or 6:42 (6 = 4 + 2). It simply felt like an animation which I ultimately attributed to the idea that it was just someone in Heaven letting me know that they were aware of me.  I was in a tremendous amount of physical and emotional pain at this time so I thought it was nothing more than that.

Shortly after leaving the family I was staying with my mother and a call came in from a woman in Houston. She had literally searched for me on the internet due to a site I had up about a specific health issue.  She lost the page and then found it again and was very excited to talk to me.  When we hung up I wanted to see how long we’d talked and when I went to the phone log it showed that the call had come in at 1:11 and we hung up at 3:33 which meant that we had talked for 2 hrs and 22 minutes, so I showed this to my mom.  We laughed and shook our heads and later headed out the door for dinner. When I turned on the car the clock read, 4:44.  She was now seeing what I was seeing and later she found a book at Barnes & Noble booksellers titled, Angel Numbers 101. This book gives the meaning for every number from 0 to 999 and it helped me understand more specifically things God wanted me to know and the number 5 has been significant.   (Note: I do not suggest that you go buy this book and try to make things happen or try to live your life by it. I certainly don’t.  I was just watching life and this is what was going on.  I find it amusing and a “candle on a dark phase of life” if you will.  Anyway, 5 means change. 55 means “out with the old and in with the new” and 555 means HUGE changes are coming.  Each time the number is repeated the message is amplified.  Without this book, without this knowledge I got up one day and said, “Today is the day that I file for divorce” and I called the lawyer.  As I was sitting in her office I did realize it was Mexico’s Day of Independence, Cinco de Mayo, the fifth of May but it didn’t dawn on me until later that night to look it up as it was 05/05.  When I went to the grocery store later that day my groceries rang up at $65.65 and that was the hint that there was something I needed to know. I’ve been documenting this in my journals and saving receipts throughout the years because it’s just sort of weird but undeniable and I’m not the only one having this experience. Again, I have nothing invested in this other than observing it.

So, here I am on Hotwire shopping for travel packages for my trip to go see the executive director of the insurance product and one of the options is for a flight with a “Total Travel Time” of 5 hrs 55 minutes.  Mom, Sis, and I all laughed and said, “Gotta take that one” and so I did. Now you have to understand that because of this journey money is a concern. I don’t need to be jumping on a plane and going to Ohio on a whim. Seeing this flight travel time in a familiar way helped me sense God was in this and that I should go.  I entered the debit card information and when the total rang up I belly-laughed and so did Mom and Pam, my sister. We couldn’t believe it. It was $555.40. I immediately thought “Dang. I wish it had been .41 then it would be all 5’s.” Before I could even share that thought the system recalculated and it came up $552.53, ALL 5’s!  We laughed and I took pictures of all the screens showing this.  The day before I left on this trip I pulled into a parking spot and when I turned around to hit the lock on the key fob of the borrowed vehicle I drive and I noticed that the bright red car’s license plate ended in 5555.  I laughed and went in.

When I got to Ohio I found out that Dr. Tenpenny was in town and that Nancy had scheduled us a meeting. I was thrilled to meet such an avid warrior on the front lines of a subject we both feel passionate about. After visiting for 30 minutes Dr. Tenpenny said that she had a radio interview scheduled at 8:00 (it was 7:30), on The Robert Scott Bell Show, a nationally-syndicated talk radio show, and that she wanted me to be on the interview. What? I couldn’t believe it but was thrilled to take this opportunity with her.  At the end of the interview, which went very well, she leaned back in her chair and winked at me saying, “Welcome to the national stage” thought that’s not how it turned out because GOD had yet another challenge and mission He needed me on.  I’ll post a link to the other blog at the end of this post.  It’s likely MORE URGENT than this core message.

As I left, Dr. Tenpenny handed me a card with her contact information and I put it in my purse.  Later I pulled it out to enter it in my phone and could hardly believe it.  Now I understood why, try as I may to publish the book on 04/04 it just wasn’t going to happen. I could actually feel the energy pushing back against me so I blew it off and went to bed. As I looked at the card I now understood, her phone number ended in the month/date that I did publish the book. Funny to see Heaven play with us like this.

I came home and posted the picture of us and made it my cover photo and shared the story of meeting her and was instantly taken in by new Facebook contacts and groups who are on the same page.  Crazy God-stuff.

A few days later a woman from Australia contacted me from one of these groups, a zealous Christian, and we began chatting by private message and I ended up sending her an email copy of the book preface. She later wrote me that she’d been covered in chills and shivers while reading it. Another woman told me that she woke up at 3:00 a.m. and couldn’t go back to sleep so she grabbed her iPad and when it came on the image of the book was staring at her in the dark.  She said, “God told me to get up, get your credit card out and buy this book now.”  She too reports on how it’s changing her life.

In a few days the husband of the woman in Australia asked to speak to me by Skype so I set everything up and we talked for three hours. Ninety minutes into the conversation this man said, “I have something to tell you. I started crying shortly after we began talking and I can’t seem to stop. When you speak, I hear God, I feel Him. And I haven’t heard God in a very long time.” He never did stop sniffling and feels strongly that this is a message from God for the Church.  Another man who bought 50 copies to give out in his small island town in Maryland cried the first time we spoke by phone. “You’re a messenger from GOD and if we don’t listen to you we deserve what comes next.”

HERE, at this link below, is “what comes next” and people had better GET INFORMED and USE THEIR GOD-GIVEN RESPONSE-ABILITY. If you read the Getting Well God’s Way book along with exploring this journey you should be shocked into reality of where we are in the human story.  We have strayed far from His design and the consequences are at our door. KNOWLEDGE IS POWER!!!!


What a MIGHTY GOD we serve.

Walking in Faith

Something seems to have taken me over. I’m writing like a maniac. Maybe it’s because the manuscript I’ve been working on for 19 years, cataloging my journey is finally with the editor.  I’m running out of money and credit and feel like the pavement is coming more clearly into view. 

When circumstances FORCED ME mid-project… I JUMPED, determined to be happy and supported and truly loved and to complete my mission without resident forces working to the contrary.  I guess I finally had to choose.  That’s unfortunate but I had God and a bunch of serendipitous connected events propelling me forward, making me believe (some were pure magic) like Heaven was playing with me.

Now I’m actually approaching people in the film industry BECAUSE doors are opening before me and those are the things that make me keep going, OPEN DOORS.

I hope you’re able to feel the exhilaration I’m feeling.


Thoughts in my head:

Stupid speculative crazy dreamer. Ughhhhhh


I covet your prayers for increased discernment, increased faith, steadiness of mind, provision, a deep sense of security or the right JOB.

Unfortunately to produce something like this book which will confront many people, ideas and call humanity to step up their game, to awaken and now the screenplay.  This requires a lot of solitude, a pace in life not caught up in busyness.  I guess it’s feels like birthing.  Sacred, active and intentional.

Seriously, please pray for me.

That rational, logical  unbelieving me would just like to have a job but I get it.

I get it that this is important, maybe more important than even I understand.

Heart be still

Mind be still

Spirit, LISTEN




Is suicide a sin?

I remember how shocked I was when I first read this scripture.  I had no idea it was in the bible and I don’t think it means “go take a prescription drug.  I take it to mean “endeavor to heal” not mask symptoms.  Truly endeavor to GET WELL.

“…he who does not use his endeavors to heal himself is brother to him who commits suicide.” Proverbs 18:9b

When the Doctors and the Prayers for Healing Fail, Where Do You Turn?


     Hi, my name is Kathy Bates

     I’ve recently published a book that’s taken 27 years to bring it to it’s peak purpose and the timing couldn’t be better with our world in it’s current state of upheaval.  The book was inspired by my story of gradually failing health, which became noticeable in 1985 but deteriorated rapidly after the birth of my only child in 1987.  I was a typical American, church-goer, mom and wife which meant that I turned to the mainstream ideas of Christianity (faith) and allopathic medicine (Rx drug philosophy) in an effort to get well.  After seeing eleven doctors in eighteen months I had to admit that I was in worse condition so I canceled the remaining medical tests and doctor appointments and slid down the wall of my kitchen and cried out to God. Because I truly believe we are spiritual beings having a human experience it only made sense to seek guidance from THE spiritual source, THE CREATOR, my Heavenly Father. Psalm 33:22 in the Amplified version of the Bible held a clue. “May your loving kindness and mercy be available to me in proportion to my waiting and hoping in you.”  Ha. I’d been waiting in doctor’s offices and hoping they had my answers.  No wonder it wasn’t working.   

     I felt that God would have no agenda other than my highest good; I simply needed to learn to hear His guidance.  I KNEW GOD WAS REAL because He met me in the trenches in a powerful way in 1982, shared on page 1 of the book.  I already knew that He could hear me, and would respond. I just didn’t understand why it hadn’t happened yet and was about to realize that I was going to have to go to a deeper level in my spiritual walk to get these answers.  2 Peter 1: 5-7 talks about adding desirable traits to your faith so you won’t fail; things such as virtue or character, knowledge, and temperance… https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=2+Peter+1%3A5-7&version=VOICE

     Six months passed since I’d canceled those tests or seen any doctors and my health continued to decline but I had made a definitive decision to invest my hope in God’s faithfulness and saw no other option so I waited, this time with determined intentional listening, ready to obey.  One day a confronting event drove me to pray what I deemed a “final prayer”, which meant that I heavily contemplated my choice of words.  I was going to ask God to show up and help me one more time and if nothing happened, then I would accept what seemed like my fate and learn to do it with grace.

     The event that unfolded was a profound spiritual manifestation and I was immediately given an amazing embrace, heard spoken reassurance, a conditional warning, and then I was led into a life-changing relationship with God regarding how to restore and maintain my health.  I became immersed in books about people overcoming disease, mainly by a change in their diet but He certainly made sure to put some reading that was outside of my comfort zone on the list. Some of this information would only make sense many years later.  Sure enough, as I changed my ways, I was rewarded with deeper knowledge and experiences with specific information that led me into full recovery.  I was able to reverse my Hashimoto’s Autoimmune Disease and Advanced Cervical Degenerative Disc Disease and eventually resolve the Fibromyalgia flare events, and reversed eleven years of crippling sciatica. 

     Much of what I needed to know was outside the bounds of conventional thought and medical ideas, which means I would’ve never found the answers I needed had I maintained the approach adopted and ordained by Christianity.  It was through this journey that I began to see how Christianity had abandoned God’s ways detailed throughout the Bible and put the world’s ways in their place. If you’re trying to build a church business that’s a good way to get customers in the seats but if you’re trying to please God, that’s a really ignorant thing to do and scripturally promises some tough consequences for those who use God to build a business.  As for those sitting in the pews, you’re about to see the dangers of being in groups where a “hive” mindset or “collective consciousness” forms. Churches are no exception! They may be well-intentioned but humans are humans. Put them in groups and some strange ideas can become cemented, even if they’re wrong.  When you add the religious element it can get even more unbalanced.

     So here I am, God is leading me to the truth that high-quality, whole, unprocessed, fresh foods were His desire for me. He showed me that my body is a temple for the Holy Spirit and I should regard it as such.  Unfortunately every church I attended had Coke machines and junk food widely available, chronic and recurrent disease among its members, and literally no knowledge about how to pursue health outside of the hope for a Divine miracle or a traditional medical doctor’s perceived magic.  “Hell-be-damned” with what any statistics say, “Ignorance is bliss and Jesus loves me” was about the depth of their knowledge.  The over-emphasis on teachings such as “we’re free in Jesus” and “by His stripes we are healed” without any stipulation of the conditions that often accompany God’s promises, collectively presents an idea that Christians are void of responsibility for their health. Even further, this claim is often tied to the sacrificial death of Jesus Christ as if to say, “Jesus died so I don’t have to be a mature, knowledgeable, self-disciplined person.  It’s led to a prevailing belief that Christians can be ignorant and irresponsible, dismissive of any duty or responsibility, as if any laws don’t apply to them however, I don’t see them trying this attitude with the law of gravity.  Honestly, it’s become nonsensical.  Finally, because the Spirit-led information I was being taught was so contrary to their model I became curious to learn the actual teachings in the Bible.  Wow!  How is it possible to miss the volume of scriptures that support a disciplined and informed lifestyle which benefits the individual, the corporate testimony of Believers, the community, the economy, and ultimately glorifies God, validates the truths in the Bible, and promotes the right people, products and ideas?

     Although I gratefully relied on the skills of surgeons after a broken spine in 1994, I haven’t been to a mainstream medical doctor for illness since 1989. Can you imagine if this were true for most of Christianity? And it correlates perfectly with when I brought my physical health into my spiritual and devotional life.

     I was also given a gift of healing in 1991 and told not to tell my pastor or promote it in the church as it was basically for my own education.  I didn’t understand that at the time but God clearly brought specific people into my life for me to learn on and then used this experience to show me the crazy ideas present especially among the Body of Christ.  The most prominent lesson was on the futility of healing someone who wasn’t willing and/or didn’t know how to maintain their health which would squander His gift.  God continued my education and had some very confronting words to say about this behavior, especially that it’s encouraged in churches.  Another interesting set of revelations was the common heart attitude seen in those who did receive healing.  They were zealous in love and service to Him with fiercely teachable spirits.  Those who were not healed had traits of being selfish, worldly, and unteachable.  They often had some idea they were hanging on to or a benefit they were receiving from being sick or injured. Surprisingly some were healed in spite of themselves.  There is much to teach the Body of Christ on this one topic alone.

     In 1994 more knowledge was required after a broken spine and a second serious spinal injury within 18 months requiring three surgeries and drastically affected my life for eleven years.  These were not accidents but were foretold by God and noted in the journals I’ve been keeping since 1989.  These events brought in a necessity for me to submit to even more learning as I again had to rely on God to teach me how to heal the variety of pain that this brought into my life.  In my view I had three choices.  I could become a prescription drug addict, end my life, or get well.  I clung tightly to God and allowed Him to use this experience to further teach me about the human body.  It was a tough curriculum but highly beneficial.

      Overall I was shown how the way we eat, live and medicate promotes products, ideas, people and companies and will ultimately create the culture we live in.  One charter school for troubled youth in Appleton, Wisconsin demonstrates clearly how food affects behavior.  The environment was so violent that a policeman interviewing for a security job refused to take the job out of fear for his life.  Paul and Barbara Stitt, two people with a profound story of their own regarding the power of natural foods, offered the school $100,000 provided they be allowed to take over the food. The school accepted and all un-natural foods were taken from the campus.  One year later there was no violence, no absentees, no attitude issues and the kids were focused on physical fitness and their academic future.  The same is true for a prison system that Barbara Stitt was in charge of.  Bringing in nutritious food dropped the theft rate by 73% and a similar drop was seen in violence.  (YouTube.com has many videos about Paul and Barbara Stitt).  These events should’ve changed our culture permanently but that doesn’t happen because there’s no sustained awareness.  Eat your vegetables, drink plenty of water and exercise doesn’t drive a lot of profit.  It’s powerfully simple wisdom that requires a higher consciousness to fully embrace.  If there isn’t a lot of profit in something then there’s no money for media coverage.  Over-the counter and prescription drugs, manufactured food, soft drinks, alcohol, insurance companies, banks, entertainment, restaurants and the like are what produce enough profits to have industry representatives, lobbyist’s and commercials.  One Facebook graphic suggests that you “Don’t eat anything that has a commercial.”  So, what does this have to do with churches?

     According to a recent search on Google I was encouraged to learn that 73% to 88% of this nation identifies themselves as Christians (including Jehovah’s Witness’ and Mormons).  That tells me that anything we get behind as a group could be aggressively influenced.  Scripturally we are called to shape the culture around us through standards of holiness which would obviously empower the right things.  The Bible also leans heavily towards stewardship, wisdom and inherent consequences for doing otherwise.  We live in a world where neurological and environmental poison is knowingly introduced into our food supply, fed to our children and incorporated into our everyday life while wisdom, sanity and non-toxic cures are considered “alternatives.”

     One of my favorite quotes is attributed to Edward R. Murrow, a days-gone-by radio host I believe.  He said, “A nation of sheep begets a government of wolves.”  At the moment I’m typing this, this nation has just spent almost $1 Billion on what is apparently a failed attempt to launch a government effort to provide health insurance for its citizens, or the poor, or whatever term you care to give it.  When I began this journey I was suffering with chronic allergies and asthma.  I had severe PMS, mood swings, suicidal depression, infertility, severe digestive problems, low blood sugar and Hashimoto’s Disease.  I had chronic fatigue and cervical degenerative disc disease, an immobilized metabolism, bursitis, a chronically dislocating shoulder, and recurrent urinary and respiratory infections.  I was taking all the typical remedies with all the empty explanations of “unexplainable but normal” and “incurable” and multiple dismal projections including total cervical fusion by 1993.

     Mainstream Christian ideas and mainstream medicine both failed to provide answers I needed to get well from illness or injury and both lay claim to having insider information.  If I can ever get the populace to realize that the consumer is the most powerful force on the planet and link that with their spiritual and devotional efforts, we may change the world.  The consumers decide consciously what kind of world they choose to create by making conscious purchases.  If it’s garbage and undermines health, stop buying it!  What kind of world do you want to live in and leave to your children?   In fact, everything I did and continue to do to get well and stay well is/was not covered by my health insurance.  Health insurance will not cause you to eat right and exercise.  And if you know how to get well and stay well then the odds of you actually needing medical intervention are quite slim.  However now that the culture, (including the churches), has behaved like sheep and lived an unthinking life, propelling a self-feeding and toxic cycle, it has indeed ushered in a wolf pack government that stands to further wreck our economy by feeding the delusion that health insurance makes people healthy.  If the citizens were healthy there wouldn’t be this perceived need.  Again, with the churches making up a large majority of the culture we could have and should take this on as a spiritual challenge to positively redirect this culture.  I have said and will continue repeating that one of the most patriotic things you can do for your country is to “get healthy!”  If you have to drive a lesser car or scale down your house, jewelry or travels then so be it but it’s time to truly examine this culture and to start supporting the things that REALLY matter.  Things that are priceless, like our health, shouldn’t be taken for granted.

“Ask not what your country can do for you but ask what you can do for your country.”  JFK, Jr.      

     While our soul may be saved through faith, the teachings regarding stewardship of our physical man have been largely ignored which has contributed heavily to this junk-culture we now live in and God is asking us to change this NOW!!!  If you stop buying it they’ll stop making commercials about it and start making commercials about what we are buying.  The consumer gives things value or negates their value.  God is asking us to take a serious look at what’s valuable.

     I learned early on that not only was the Christian community off-course in this area they were not in any way welcoming of ideas that would require them to give up their soft drinks and junk food to the point of blatant hostility.  Sadly this has not changed in my 27+ years on this journey.  I finally stopped going to church because it was too painful to watch.  Although my relationship with God is alive and well I no longer want to be part of a religious system that would adamantly reject deeper knowledge to protect a carnal appetite.

     When we eat, live and medicate in a way that promotes chemically-laden, toxic foods, and the goofy idea that we can take chemical drugs or buy health insurance that will “keep us healthy” this will obviously fail us as a culture.   This way of life profits junk food manufacturers and pharmaceutical companies who then make hefty financial contributions to career politicians whose very careers hinge on donations so then they become dependent on this “dirty money” so they propel legislation forward that protects, promotes and prospers a self-feeding agenda that unfortunately only functions when citizens are sickly.  These fortified companies are undermining our food, drastically limiting our medical views in favor of an elite group that does not have the best interest of the individual or society in mind and typically destroying our environment.  This entire cycle is created by the consumer!  The Body of Christ has an opportunity as a major consumer group to change what is being promoted!  You’ve likely heard of voting with your wallet.  Personally I think God’s desire is for Christians to be so committed to their devotion in their everyday life that the politicians would be pandering to us and the businesses we support.  Can you see how the leverage can be shifted?  We empower or destroy.

“What you do not understand, you will not value.  What you do not value, you will destroy.”

     I was eventually led to become a licensed massage therapist in 1995.  I’ve had some amazing experiences as opportunities presented while working with clients which let me know that I don’t work alone.  I don’t mean to sound weird, just factual and hopefully inspiring to others to seek a similar experience.  We are after all mere humans who in my view could use some help.  Unfortunately the culturally-conformed way of insurance-reliance and a traditional medical approach eliminates many qualified practitioners like me from people’s pursuit of health.  One of God’s early revelations was my need to go to practitioners as directed by Him rather than only those paid for by my insurance.  It had never occurred to me that this American way was limiting God’s ability to lead me to the needed answers. He also wanted me to invest in my health, in myself. It’s kind of a grown up thing to do.

     Early in my journey God’s spirit would constantly whisper the word “Holiness” which I later learned has the same Anglo-Saxon root word as “health” so they are obviously related.  Another time I was cooking my healthy dinner and He spoke, “This is your worship.”  These insights helped me see that this way of life was a manner of honoring God with my physical body which is certainly established through many scriptures.  Scripturally we are called to conform the culture to God’s ways but the churches have instead become conformed to the world and its ways and has certainly created a less than holy and less than healthy nation.

     “We, God’s church, are the greatest hindrance to revival.  We need not wrestle revival from the hands of a reluctant God.  Revival is a gift, not a goal.  God is simply looking for a decent place to put one.  As we become that holy place, we will see the knowledge of His glory cover our nation as the waters cover the sea!”
