Dr. Youssef: Failing to Adhere to Biblical Truth Will Be Devastating to Future Generations

In Newest Book, “Hope for This Present Crisis,” Bestselling Author Dr. Michael Youssef Says ‘Wokeness is a Religion Without Grace or Mercy’

ATLANTA — According to Dr. Michael Youssefif the Church fails to adhere to biblical truth, the consequences of wokeness will be devastating for future generations. The bestselling  author compares child-rearing to a “three-legged stool,” stressing the importance of a healthy home, church, and school environment.

“The home is number one, the church is number two and school is number three,” said Dr. Youssef. “Even if the school is working against the kids, if they have the strength in the home and in the church, they will make it. But when the church avoids talking about issues or goes along with culture, then kids are confused.

“Satan is working overtime to deceive children. If these words are terrifying, I’m glad they are because it’s time for us to build the fences around our children and their hearts and seal them with the Holy Spirit.

“Children must know that there is a Satan and he hates God, he hates God’s children, and he’s conspiring against them every minute of every day. Therefore, they have to galvanize themselves with the power of the Holy Spirit and the Word of God, in order to fight.”

In“Hope for This Present Crisis,”Dr. Michael Youssef provides a diagnosis of the insanity of the current culture and a concise seven-step prescription for restoring sanity to a world gone mad. The new book is available through AmazonBarnes and NobleBAMChristianBook.com, and Leading The Way.

Dr. Youssef describes wokeness for his readers. “Wokeness is a religion. It has no God, but it has all the other trappings of a bullying, self-righteous, pharisaic religion. It demands absolute faith and mindless obedience. It has creeds and dogmas that no one dares to violate. Its doctrines can change without warning, and any who don’t get the memo will be stoned as heretics.

“People who transgress the rules of the wokeness religion may spend a lifetime atoning for their sin – but they’ll never be forgiven. Wokeness is a religion without grace or mercy.”

Dr. Michael Youssef was born in Egypt and lived in Lebanon and Australia before coming to the United States and fulfilling a childhood dream of becoming an American citizen.

The Magic of Fiber: Dr. Don Colbert Explains How This Power Tool Leads to Optimum Gut Health

In His Latest Book, ‘Dr. Colbert’s Healthy Gut Zone,’ Dr. Colbert SaysThat Most People Need More Fiber

DALLAS — Arecent study concluded that increasing fiber in one’s diet improves health. The results of this study would not surprise Dr. Don Colbertwho, in his newest book, “Dr. Colbert’s Healthy Gut Zone” (DrColbertBooks), writes that if adults work to restore their gut health with fiber and eat the same gut-friendly foods, it is likely every single person would see improvement.

“That is how powerful the gut is,” Dr. Colbert says. “Once it is restored, it can put the rest of your body back together again. Of the five power tools I recommend for improving your gut health—fiber, probiotics, prebiotics, polyphenols, and resistant starches—fiber is one of the most important and adding more of it into your diet is a good place to start in healing your gut.”

How then do you get enough fiber? Dr. Colbert’s top recommendation for soluble fiber intake is psyllium husk powder. Psyllium is mainly a soluble fiber with some insoluble fiber from the seed husks of the plant Plantago ovata.

According to Dr. Colbert, one teaspoon of psyllium husk powder after breakfast and/or dinner will usually do the trick, as long as the patient is drinking sufficient amounts of water (at least eight cups per day).

Because fiber absorbs water, it increases the volume of your stools and helps move it all quickly through your GI tract. “Your body needs a quick process,” Dr. Colbert says. “Anything longer than the normal three-day cycle has the potential to cause you problems.

“Fiber is often called ‘roughage’ or ‘bulk,’ but it is far more than that. Your body desperately needs sufficient fiber every day, but most people are getting less than half of the fiber they need on a daily basis. Eventually, aim for 25–35 grams a day, and you can’t go wrong. Add that to sufficient water intake, and you will often begin to see the magic of fiber after a week or two.”

Dr. Colbert’s newest book is available through AmazonBarnes and NobleBAMChristianBookIndiebound and Walmart.
