In our DVD: Error of Man 2 Pharmakos, we talked about the dangers of certain foods and prescription drugs. Many times, our desire for pleasuring chemicals found in junk food and various medicines is based on emotional and spiritual issues we need to deal with. Eating disorders as well as substance abuse are usually linked to emotional trauma and issues that stem from bad experiences in our past. This can cause one to be displeased with themselves and subconsciously alter their appearance through over indulgence in bad foods and chemical dependencies.
Displeasure with oneself is the leading cause of indulgence in dangerous foods and drugs. The church, in some ways, has made people believe that quick fixes (prayer lines, prophetic anointing, and laying on of hands) can quickly make these issues disappear. But in most cases, we need the power of God in the form of sound teaching and developmental deliverance (discipleship) to be healed. Although I believe some people can be set free from certain things instantly, there are many that need rewiring from their old thought processes. The bible calls this process “taking thoughts captive and casting down imaginations”. Some of these things take time and this is where sound doctrine and consistent biblical teaching comes into play.
Our issues will continue to plague us and linger until we gain the faith in God that is needed to believe on Him for our total deliverance. This faith is built by us hearing the word of God and also fellowshipping with like minded believers! Romans 10:17 So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God. Heb. 10:24-25 And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near.
Planting yourself in a good church, under good consistent teaching, is the best way to overcome strongholds and sinful imaginations. This can combat the desire for us to destroy our bodies with dangerous substances. When we are under good leadership and sound teaching, our hidden issues will usually surface to a point where they can be dealt with by application of what is being taught. The very desire to be better and do better stems from the challenge of sound teaching that God’s chosen vessels speak to us. When the Word of God is taught soundly, the enemy cannot hide. And when we submit to it, we can be set free from the strongholds of the enemy. Once we learn to depend on God’s word and sound doctrine for answers, we will no longer need chemicals to make us feel better about our lives.

2Cor. 10:4 (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;) Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;
In the garden God gave us dominion over “all the earth,” which includes plants, (Gen 1:26). Unfortunately, because of our quest for independence from God through “The Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil,” many are being enslaved and led to death by the very things God gave us dominion over: Trees, plants, and herbs that make up our food and drugs (legal and illegal). How is the enemy using “Big Pharma” to control the masses? Why are preventable diseases like high blood pressure, diabetes, kidney failure, and heart disease so rampant in this generation? Better yet, if God desires that His people prosper and be in good health, (3 John 2), why is the church so sick? The teaching in this DVD, Error of Man 2: Pharmakos, is not only saving souls but saving lives! In this powerful expose, G. Craige Lewis takes you on his personal 4 year journey of weight loss, healing, and deliverance, resulting in the revelation God gave him for this powerful teaching. Your soul will prosper, and your life will be changed as you apply the principles in this most important DVD. Click here to order!
