God’s Mighty Right Arm Saving Body and Soul. By Ted N. C. Wilson

Saving Body and Soul 


We are living in the time of the end. Many people around the world are realizing that things are changing rapidly and that the future is uncertain. As we prepare for the soon coming of Jesus, it is more important than ever that we refocus on our unique, heaven-born mandate of medical missionary work, or as we are now calling it: “comprehensive health ministry”—utilizing the health message in every way possible to bring people to the cross of the Master Physician.

A new study published in the journal Climatic Change determined the difference in greenhouse gas emissions from 55,000 meat eaters, fish eaters, vegetarians and vegans in the United Kingdom. Vegetarians accounted for much less CO2 than meat eaters, while vegans did even better: They accounted for half the emissions that meat eaters did.
