Open the Web site, and the patient is waiting. (FYI, the patient is a
mannequin.) Now you can play doctor! Click the part that hurts,
and up pops a list of symptoms. Tips help with the diagnosis and
tell you when to visit a real doctor.

Also on WebMD are a drug and herb decoder, a medical library, and a
physician search.

I especially like the Health Tools. These include calculators, guides,
quizzes and self-assessments to better manage your family's health. For
example, thinking about baby-proofing your home? A room-by-room diagram
gives you any help you may need.

-- Clark Gable -

Died: November 16, 1960
Born: Feb. 1, 1901

Actor. Gable landed a job with a stock company gaining
valuable training from the woman who would become his wife
and lead him to Hollywood and a career which spanned three
decades with appearances in 92 movies including "Gone With
the Wind," one of the most popular film of all times. Gable
won an Academy Award in 1934 for his role in "It Happened
One Night." His third marriage to actress Carole Lombard
ended with her tragic death at 33 in a plane crash in 1942.
Distraught, he withdrew from his career and though well
over the draft age, he enlisted in the Army Air Corps
becoming an aerial gunner during World War II flying in
five bombing missions over Germany and received the
Distinguished Flying Cross and Air Medal. Discharged with
the rank of Major, he returned to Hollywood and resumed
film making. Two weeks after completing his last movie,
"The Misfits," He suffered chest pains and was transported
to Presbyterian Hospital in Los Angeles where he was
diagnosed as having suffered a coronary thrombosis. On
the ninth day of his confinement he passed away.

A UNC grad was driving through the country when he spotted a horse
standing in a field. He was quite taken with the animal and so pulled
over to ask the farmer if it was for sale.

"Afraid not," said the farmer.

"I'll give you a thousand bucks!" said the UNC grad.

"I can't sell you that horse. He don't look too good," replied the
farmer.

"I know horses and he looks fine. I'll give you two thousand!"

"Well, all right, if you want him so bad."

The next day, the man returned the horse, screaming that he had been
taken advantage of. "You sold me a blind horse!"

"Well," said the farmer, "I told you he didn't look too good."

In the play Julius Caesar William Shakespeare muses, "You are not wood,
you are not stones, but men." For some reason, emotions are simply
expectations we have of one another. Even amidst brief exchanges with
strangers, we would be caught off guard by a totally callous individual;
we would find an emotionless person somewhat disturbing. The world was
appalled and infuriated when Timothy McVeigh described with stone cold
expression the actions he took to carry out his plans to destroy the
Oklahoma City Federal building. We seem to wholeheartedly sense that a
human who can sever their emotions like that is behaving in a way that is
something less than human.

Quite simply, we are emotional beings. It is equally evident that we are
personal beings—lives created to know and be known. Perhaps this reality
hints at something much deeper; there is a reason we were made to feel.

In understanding the human capacity for emotion, Ravi Zacharias often
suggests we look first at the presence and purpose of feeling in
physiological realms. If you burn your finger or break your arm, you will
immediately notice swelling and redness. Yet, beyond the blisters or
bruises, there is a sensitivity about the damaged spot that remains. We
are more gentle with an arm that has been hurt, and for good reason. The
sensitivity of a burned or wounded arm essentially tells us, "Protect this
area. Protect it, because if the damage continues, you will wound it in an
even greater way." Physiologically, that there is reason behind our
ability feel is unmistakable.

Many hold the false impression that leprosy causes the stricken individual
to lose limbs and damage body parts. In actuality, the disease itself does
not cause what happens to the body. Leprosy causes insensitivity. Lepers
lose fingers and limbs because without the sensitivity of pain to guide
them, tissues become damaged beyond repair.

What, then, happens when our emotions have lost their sensitivity? One
only has to look around to see this happening. Insensitivity disfigures reality.

Our feelings and emotions have inarguably been set within us to guide us.
It is altogether reasonable that they have been set within us by a personal
God who longs for our emotions to direct us toward Him. In the Scriptures,
God has presented the thoughts and hearts of men and women in history to
remind us that our emotions are indicators of a deeper reality, indicators
that rouse us to know Him, to remain sensitive to his presence. Listen to
the words of King David and hear the emotion in his voice:

“As the deer pants for streams of water,
so my soul pants for you, O God.
My soul thirsts for God, for the living God.
When can I go and meet with God?
My tears have been my food
day and night,
while men say to me all day long,
‘Where is your God?’
Why are you downcast, O my soul?
Why so disturbed within me?
Put your hope in God,
for I will yet praise him,
my Savior and my God” (Psalm 42:1-3).

David’s emotions were real, and he followed them to the very throne of
truth, where they were given context, hope, and meaning. “My soul is
downcast within me; therefore I will remember you from the land of the
Jordan, the heights of Hermon-from Mount Mizar. For deep calls to deep in
the roar of your waterfalls; all your waves and breakers have swept over
me” (42:5-7). David is remembered as a man after God's own heart. May
you and I be remembered likewise. Jill Carattini

"You will be My witnesses in Jerusalem, in all Judea and Samaria,
and to the ends of the earth." (Acts 1:8b)

It is a profound thought indeed to ponder the fact that every person I meet
today eventually will be in heaven or hell. It was this sobering thought
that led John R. Mott, a missionary statesman of the last century, to say, "
The Scriptures teach that if men are to be saved they must be saved through
Christ. . .To have the knowledge of Christ is to incur a responsibility to
everyone who has not."
--W. Ross Rainey, in " Choice Gleanings Devotional Calendar," Port
Colborne, ON: Gospel Folio Press, 2003

Very briefly, there are these major religions in the world: Christianity, Islam,
and Mormonism. They all have at last one thing in common -- a message
from their God. For the Muslim it was a revelation to a man named Muhammad
from the angel Gabriel, and he recorded it as the Quran. For the Mormons it
was a revelation to a man named Joseph Smith from the angel Moroni, and he
recorded it as the Book of Mormon. For Christians, it is a message from God
through His followers through the ages, recorded as the Holy Bible. The
various records all have some events in common, but the founders of Islam
and Mormon are long dead and buried. The founder of Christianity was
crucified, dead, buried and then rose again and ascended into Heaven in the
sight of many witnesses.

Those religions share views of certain moral standards, the Ten
Commandments, etc., and even recognize a supreme being, God or Allah.
But they differ exceedingly in their concept of Jesus Christ, the Son of God.
And that is where the ultimate conflict, the ultimate challenge occurs -- it
is essentially a battle between Christianity and the anti-Christian forces.

And that has been the program of the liberals, to attack every
manifestation of Christianity in the schools and in public places; to
eliminate traditional marriage and thereby the Christian family, and are now
attempting to limit ministers in Christian churches in their freedom to
preach from the Bible. The seriousness of this challenge cannot be
overestimated. The public vote in the immediate past election indictes that
the American people are ready, willing and able to rise to this challenge.

A picky customer comes to a small food shop and sees
a new delivery of fresh fruit.

"Give me two kilograms of oranges and wrap every orange up in
a separate piece of paper, please," he says to the saleswoman.

She does.

"And three kilograms of cherries, please, and wrap up
every one in a separate piece of paper, too."

She does.

"And what is that there," he asks pointing out a bushel in the corner.

"Raisins," says the saleswoman, "but...

ah.... er... they're not for sale!"

A man absolutely hated his wife's cat and decided to get rid
of him one day by driving him 20 blocks from his home and
leaving him at the park.

As he was getting home, the cat was walking up the driveway!

The next day he decided to drive the cat 40 blocks away. He
put the beast out of the car and quickly headed home.

Driving back up his driveway, there was the cat again!

He kept taking the cat further and further away but the cat
would always beat him home. At last he decided to drive
quite a few miles away--so he turned right, then left, past
the bridge, then right again and another right until he reached
what he thought was a safe distance from his home and
left the cat there.

Hours later the man calls home to his wife: "Hon, is the cat there?"

"Yes," the wife answers, "why do you ask?"

Frustrated, the man answered, "Can you please put him
on the phone? I'm lost and need directions"

I am trying here to prevent anyone from saying the really
foolish thing that people often say about Him [Jesus Christ]:
"I'm ready to accept Jesus as a great moral teacher, but I
don't accept His claim to be God."

That is the one thing we must not say. A man who was
merely a man and said the sort of things Jesus said would
not be a great moral teacher. He would either be a lunatic --
on a level with a man who says he is a poached egg --
or else he would be the Devil of Hell.

You must make your choice. Either this Man was, and is,
the Son of God, or else a madman or something worse ....
You can shut Him up for fool, you can spit at Him and kill
Him as a demon; or you can fall at His feet and call Him
Lord and God. But let us not come up with any patronizing
nonsense about His being a great human teacher. He has
not left that option open to us. He did not intend to.

-- From Case for Christianity, by C.S. Lewis

An elderly gentlemen went in for his annual physical
exam. The doctor said, "You're in incredible shape.
How old are you again?" The man replied, "I am 78."

The doctor exclaimed, "Wow, 78. How do you stay so
healthy? You look like a 60 year old." The man explained,
"Well, my wife and I made a pact when we got married
that whenever she got mad she would go into the kitchen
and cool off and I would go outside to settle down."

"What does that have to do with it?" asked the doctor.
The man sighed, "I've pretty much lived an outdoor life."

One sunny day in 2005, an old man approached
the White House from across Pennsylvania Avenue,
where he'd been sitting on a park bench. He spoke
to the Secret Service agent standing guard and said,
"I would like to go in and meet with President Kerry."

The Secret Service agent replied, "Sir, Mr. Kerry is
not President and doesn't reside here."

The old man said, "Okay," and walked away.

The following day, the same man approached the
White House and said to the same Secret Service
agent, "I would like to go in and meet with President
Kerry."

The Secret Service agent again told the man, "Sir,
as I said yesterday, Mr. Kerry is not President and
doesn't reside here." The man thanked him and again
walked away.

The third day, the same man approached the White
House and spoke to the very same Secret Service
agent, saying "I would like to go in and meet with
President Kerry."

The Secret Service agent, understandably agitated
at this point, looked at the man and said, "Sir, this
is the third day in a row you have been here asking
to speak to Mr. Kerry. I've told you already that Mr.
Kerry is not the President and doesn't reside here.
Don't you understand?"

The old man answered, "Oh, I understand. I just love
hearing it."

The Secret Service agent snapped to attention, saluted,
and said, "See you tomorrow."

There are several men in the locker room of a private club after
exercising.

Suddenly a cell phone that was on one of the benches rings. A man
picks it up and the following conversation ensues:

"Hello?"

"Honey, It's me. Are you at the club?"

"Yes."

"Great! I am at the mall 2 blocks from where you are. I saw a
beautiful mink coat... It is absolutely gorgeous!! Can I buy it?"

"What's the price?"

"Only $1,500.00"

"Well, OK, go ahead and get, if you like it that much..."

"Ahhh and I also stopped by the Mercedes dealership and saw the 2001
models. I saw one I really liked. I spoke with the salesman and he
gave me a really good price ... and since we need to exchange the BMW
that we bought last year..."

"What price did he quote you?"

"Only $60,000..."

"OK, but for that price I want it with all the options."

"Great! Before we hang up, something else..."

"What?"

"It might look like a lot, but I was reconciling your bank account
and... I stopped by the real estate agent this morning and I saw the
house we had looked at last year. It's on sale!! Remember? The one
with a pool, English Garden, acre of park area, beachfront
property..."

"How much are they asking?"

"Only $750,000... a magnificent price, and I see that we have that
much in the bank to cover..."

"Well, than go ahead and buy it, but just bid $720,000. OK?"

"OK, sweetie... Thanks! I'll see you later!! I love you!!!"

"Bye... I do too..."

The man hangs up, closes the phone's flap and raises his hand while
holding the phone and asks to all those present: "Does anyone know
who this phone belongs to?"

The Threat at Home:
Europe and Radical Islam


European elites, like American elites, are having trouble understanding the
recent American elections. "How can 59,054,087 people be so DUMB?" was the
headline in London's DAILY MIRROR. Another British paper, the GUARDIAN,
actually organized an anti-Bush letter-writing campaign to sway voters in Ohio.

Instead of trying to influence or explain American elections, Europeans ought to
be taking a much closer look at what's happening close to their home, or else
one day a headline over here might read, "How Could 457 Million Europeans Have
Been So Blind?"

Theo Van Gogh, Vincent's great grand-nephew, was a filmmaker and, pardon my
French, provocateur. He was the kind of artist whose work, if he had been an
American, would probably have outraged some Christians, including me.

Christians would have written letters-to-the-editor, picketed his showings, and
have insisted that taxpayer dollars not be used to support his work. In reply,
Van Gogh's defenders would have compared us to "Islamic fundamentalists,"
even as his provocations made him rich and famous.

Unfortunately for Van Gogh, he was Dutch, not American, and the people he
offended were real Islamic fundamentalists, not Christians. On November 2,
a man Dutch police describe as "an Islamic fundamentalist with terrorist ties"
murdered Van Gogh.

The motive behind the murder is believed to be a movie about "Islamic violence
against women" called SUBMISSION. The film was produced by Van Gogh and
written by Ayaan Hirsi Ali, a Dutch member of parliament and an "ex-Muslim."
Ali's criticisms of her former faith include describing the Qur'an as "in part a
license for oppression."

Ali now lives under twenty-four-hour-a-day police protection, protection Van
Gogh refused, saying that "no one can seriously want to shoot the village
idiot." He was wrong.

The Netherlands and the rest of Europe face an enemy within its borders that
will use European freedoms to take away the freedom of Europeans. They will
avail themselves of continental tolerance to spread intolerance throughout the
continent.

As if to underscore this point, a few days after the murder, someone painted
"Thou shall not kill" on a wall as a tribute. Officials sandblasted the message
after local Islamic leaders complained that the graffiti was "offensive" and
"racist."

The same British GUARDIAN wrote of a "dangerous rise in racial tension" as a
result of the murder and accused the Dutch government of "fanning the flames"
through its efforts to better integrate Islamic immigrants into Dutch society.

If this is the best that European elites can do in response to a frontal assault
on freedom of speech, heaven help the 457 million people of the European Union.
As Bernard Lewis of Princeton, the foremost scholar of Islam, told the German
paper Die Welt, Europe faces the possibility of becoming "part of the Arabic
West."

Or as Bassam Tibi, a moderate Muslim leader in Germany, puts it: "Either Islam
gets Europeanized, or Europe gets Islamized." Either way, it's time for
Europeans not to worry so much about the votes in Ohio, but to focus their
attention where it's needed most: their threat at home. http://xrl.us/d238

For Christians, the life and death of Jesus are the ultimate
expressions of love, and the supreme demonstrations of
God's mercy, faithfulness, and redemption. Since Christ's
miraculous Resurrection on Easter, more than 2,000 years
ago, Christians have expressed joy and gratitude for this
wondrous sacrifice and for God's promise of freedom for
the oppressed, healing for the brokenhearted, and salvation.
--President George W. Bush

"It cannot be emphasized too strongly or too often that this

Four important things to KNOW:

1) For ALL (Americans, Muslims, Jews, Catholics, Hindus,
Buddhist, Asians, Presbyterians, Europeans, Baptist,
Brazilians, Mormons, Methodist, French, etc.) have sinned
& fall short of the glory of God.

2) For the wages of above (see #1) are DEATH (Hell, eternal
separation from God, & damnation) but the Gift (free & at
no charge to you) of God (Creator, Jehovah, & Trinity) is
Eternal Life (Heaven) through (in union with) Jesus Christ
(God, Lord, 2nd Person of The Trinity, Messiah, Prince of
Peace & Savior of the World).

3) For God so greatly loved & dearly prized the world
(Americans, Muslims, Jews, Catholics, Hindus, Buddhist,
Asians, Presbyterians, Europeans, Baptist, Brazilians,
Mormons, Methodist, French, etc.) that He even gave up
His only begotten (unique) Son, that whosoever (anyone,
anywhere, anytime - while still living) believes (trust in,
relies on, clings to, depends completely on) Him shall
have eternal (everlasting) life (heaven).

4) Jesus said: "I am THE WAY, THE TRUTH, & THE LIFE.
No one (male/female - American, Muslim, Jew, Catholic,
Hindu, Buddhist, Asian, Presbyterian, European, Baptist,
Brazilian, Mormons, Methodist, French, etc. ) comes (arrives)
to the Father (with GOD in Heaven) EXCEPT BY (through)
ME (no other name).

This wonderful loving GOD gives you the choice - - -
(Rev. 3:20)

{Please note that church membership, baptism, doing good
things, etc. are not requirements for becoming a Christian -
however they are great afterwards!!!}


Jesus said, "Wide is the gate and broad is the road that
leads to destruction (Hell, damnation, eternal punishment),
and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow
the road that leads to life (Heaven, eternal happiness,
forever with God), and only a few find it. --Matthew 7:13-14

Above All…Bring My Books!
When you come, bring the cloak that I left with Carpus at Troas,
also the books, and above all the parchments. 2 Timothy 4.13
I am frequently asked “Have you read any good books lately?” Sometimes I can quickly give an answer, as I can this week. Other times I hesitate, because though I might have read several books, some are not as profitable or simply don’t merit the award of a “good book.” I thought I might share with you a few books I have been reading, and even talk about a few of them that I would call “good.”

Before I get into some thoughts on my most recent reading list, a word on the minister and his books, and for that matter, the serious Christian and his books. There is as Solomon says no end of books:

… Of making many books there is no end, and much study is a weariness of the flesh. Ecclesiastes 12.12
(Young people: it is not fair using this against your parents as you are being told to go and do your homework!)
What we learn from that passage, of course, is this: If we had no other book but the Word of God, we would be very wise indeed. Salvation of the soul cannot come from human insights, but only from divine revelation (the Bible). So is there any profit to be had from books in this world?

Dr. Kennedy used to tell us in seminary, “A minister must have a love of three things to be useful in the Gospel ministry: a love of God (His Word, His Gospel), a love of People (who you are as a servant not only to God but to man), and a love of Books.”

I believe his advice is well founded on all three points. On the matter before us, the Bible teaches that good books are a gift from God that help us, in their best usage, to understand God and ourselves better. Where do we learn that? Well, my favorite place that speaks about books is 2 Timothy 4.13 (which I use on my personal “book stamp”). Paul, in 2 Timothy 4.13, called for two things: a cloak to keep him warm in prison, and his library. Now that sounds like a man who cherished his books. Matthew Henry, the wise old Puritan, Presbyterian Bible commentator, taught well from this passage when he wrote these words:

“The love of this world is often the cause of turning back from the truths and ways of Jesus Christ. Paul was guided by Divine inspiration, yet he would have his books. As long as we live, we must still learn. The apostles did not neglect human means in seeking the necessaries of life, nor in their own instruction. Let us thank the Divine goodness in having given us so many writings of wise and pious men in all ages; and let us seek that by reading them our profiting may appear to all.”

This is why I encourage Christians, and especially our officers, to begin to build a good working theological library. Books that fit this description usually cannot be found at most bookstores, though some books, like Matthew Henry’s may be found there. (I still consider him the best of the commentators; he is timeless in his exegesis of the text and his exposition and application of the sacred Word to the lives of his congregation, and through his writings, to the reader.) We have sought, in our Media Resource Room, to have some books that will help you in building a home library. You can also find these and other books on-line. I hope to produce a suggested list for a Home Theological Library soon for our Media Resource Room. In this little column let me answer the question, “What have you been reading lately?”

* * * Four important things to KNOW: #1) For ALL (Americans, Muslims, Jews, Catholics, Hindus, Buddhist, Asians, Presbyterians, Europeans, Baptist, Brazilians, Mormons, Methodist, French, etc.) have sinned & fall short of the glory of God. #2) For the wages of above (see #1) are DEATH (Hell, eternal separation from God, & damnation) but the Gift (free & at no charge to you) of God (Creator, Jehovah, & Trinity) is Eternal Life (Heaven) through (in union with) Jesus Christ (God, Lord, 2nd Person of The Trinity, Messiah, Prince of Peace & Savior of the World). #3) For God so greatly loved & dearly prized the world (Americans, Muslims, Jews, Catholics, Hindus, Buddhist, Asians, Presbyterians, Europeans, Baptist, Brazilians, Mormons, Methodist, French, etc.) that He even gave up His only begotten (unique) Son, that whosoever (anyone, anywhere, anytime - while still living) believes (trust in, relies on, clings to, depends completely on) Him shall have eternal (everlasting) life (heaven). #4) Jesus said: "I am THE WAY, THE TRUTH, & THE LIFE. No one (male/female - American, Muslim, Jew, Catholic, Hindu, Buddhist, Asian, Presbyterian, European, Baptist, Brazilian, Mormons, Methodist, French, etc. ) comes (arrives) to the Father (with GOD in Heaven) EXCEPT BY (through) ME (no other name). *** This wonderful loving GOD gives you the choice - - - (Rev. 3:20) {Please note that church membership, baptism, doing good things, etc. are not requirements for becoming a Christian - however they are great afterwards!!!} *** Jesus said, "Wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction (Hell, damnation, eternal punishment), and many enter through it.
