Wednesday, March 7, 2012 Page 3 The Adams County Record Pastor's Comer Great Faith by Wayne Preedman Who did the Lord describe as having "great faith" during His ministry?. If you are like me, immediately your mind went to some of His closest followers, then religious leaders of His day, or even Old Testament patriarchs. But none of these were given praise from Jesus for their "great faith." In fact only two people are described by Christ as having "great faith" and neither of them were even Jewish. The first came to Christ early during His ministry because he had a sick servant. He was a Roman Centurion, a foreign commander in the community of Capernaum. I first noticed that he came to Jesus requesting, not demanding [which he had the power to do] His help in healing his servant. When Jesus offers to go with him to heal his servant the centurion says, "Lord [Master], I do not deserve to have You come under my roof. But just say the word, and my servant will be healed." Then he proceeds to explain that he is a man under authority and basically believes that Christ has the authority to simply speak the command and his servant will be healed at a distance without the Lord's presence or touch. Matthew says, that, "When Jesus heard this, He was astonished and said to those following Him, 'I tell you the truth, I have not found anyone in Israel with such great faith.'" The second Canaanite mother who comes to Jesus with a request on behalf of her daughter who is demon possessed. The disciples try to turn her away but she persists and the Lord acknowledges, "Woman, you have great faithl Your request is granted." And the scripture says that her daughter was healed from that very hour. So what qualifies a person to have "great faith?" It isn't being of tlae right nationality, the right religion, or even the right gender, but simply being a person who persists in placing themselves under the compassionate authority of God's sovereignty over their life and the needs of those around them. Entrustin someone "you truly care about to Christ, believing that He will do what's best for them is truly "great faith."

Come November, will we, the people, rid ourselves of the Luna laws, and elect a legislature which cares about people rather than party and power? TraViS Mannin O, boise Executive Director of the Comvwon Sense Democracy Foundation Negativity should stop Dear Editor, In regards to the Sheriffs race: We no longer live in Council, ID but usually go back every year to visit friends. We keep in touch and hear how things are, in and around there. We are seeing a lot on Facebook about the upcoming elections and are floored with the nega- tivity making the rounds. We don't understand the big push about Don Allen not growing up there, so we checked out Tom's old high school yearbooks and we see he lived there thru two years of school, so obviously he is from there at one point. I, myself (Lori) did not grow up there, but lived there for six years. When people ask me where I'm from, I include Council. We don't under- stand why people are so focused on Don's growing up where and when. Is Council so narrow minded or rigid that only those who were born, grew up and never left can run for offices in Adams County?. Are there skeletons rattling that make people so nervous about "new blood?" Even here in AZ we run across people who live/ lived in Adams County or who have traveled thru and complain about the way the Sheriff's Dept. is run. Council is small and struggling like many small towns. The nega- tivity has got to stop, or even those who may wish to check out the town may go elsewhere. Tom & Lori I-filleboe O, ha ndlr, AZ, A Few Short Thoughts Unless I didn't recognize them, I didn't see any permittees who put cattle out on the Warm Spring allotment at the Payette Forest Coalition meeting on Thursday. This could be a very important issue for those cattlemen, and I highly recommend they get involved. Sheep rancher and state Senator Jeff Siddoway gave up on his proposed bill that I mentioned last week. 'He wanted more tools to kill the wolves that have eaten his sheep, killed his guard dogs and done similar damage to ranchers across the state. A report online said: "Fighting back tears, Siddoway acknowledged that his bill threatened to return wolves to the Endangered Species Act. He said he had spoken to U.S. Rep. Mike Simpson, who authored legislation that removed wolves from the Endangered Species List, and asked the Senate to send the bill back to the Natural Resources and Environment Committee, where it will remain." A few weeks ago I made a point here, using an analogy about cranes and herons. I Said herons were a type of crane. Well, the point of the analogy remains valid, but Walt Okamoto, who is a former U.S. Fish & Wildlife lagent and ornithologist tells me cranes and herons are actually from different families. I gqess I'll have to fund a dfffei'ent analogy. + Be sure 1o set your clocks and watehes ahead this weekend. Doctor Oz and the business,of weight loss whtin'g }sU mney. '; .... Dietary supplements marketed for weight con- trol, depending on the formulation, can only assist in the weight con- trol process; they are not going to "melt the fat away." It's not respon- sible for Dr. Oz or anyone to recommend a "quick fix" nutritional supple- ment for reduction of belly fat. Body fat reduc- tion is extremely diffi- cult for most people and involves calorie control, exercise, and tremendous discipline. With this in mind, there is one nutritional supplement that Dr. Oz has recommended that I feel can be used safely and effectively to assist in the weight loss pro- cess. It is evidence based Oz, a highly .respected cardiologist turned media celebrity, has used his extensive knowledge of holistic medicine to raise awareness of nutritional therapies. Dr. Oz has been a positive force in helping people understand their nutritional options, but often times the pursuit of network ratings hag replaced evidence based nutrition. I've worked in the health and nutrition industry for over 20 years and I can tell you with a high degree of certainty that it is impossible to lose body fat by using an herb, vitamin, or exot- ic juice alone withotit permanently changin your diet and lifestyh Anything else and we'I just chasing a dream an Have you been watch- ing the Di-. Oz show lately? If so, you're prob- ably familiar with the headlines: "Bust belly fat with raspberry ketones," "Lose inches with 7-Keto DHEA," "Melt fat away with safflower oil," and " Control emotional eating with Relora." It doesn't matter whether you're shop- ping online or at the drug store, reading a maga- zine, or watching televi- sion, marketers are try- ing to sell you the latest, greatest weight loss phe- nomenon. Even in a small community like Ontario I spend several hours each day answering questions c --':-I "'!'I linica ly ...... ' researched unlike many of the "quick fix" diet scams available. This product is called PGX, a unique fiber supplement that can decrease appetite to help you control calorie intake and stabilize blood glucose, two important issues to address in any weight loss program. Every one I've worked with who has success- fully lost weight and kept it off has reduced calorie intake, increased calorie expenditure (exer- cise), made healthier food choices, and had the discipline, focus, and dedication to make the necessary sacrifices. Please keep in mind that if you're overweight or obese it took years for you to accumulate excess 'body fat, and thus .,{t; going to take a focused effort to lose that body fat and achieve a healthy weight.

It would seem like common sense that if a weight loss product sounds to good to be true, it probably is. The reality is that 78% of Americans are over- weight, with 34% consid- ered obese and 6% mor- bidly obese, what's more, as Americans we are not accustomed to wait- ing for results, we want a "quick fix," we want it now, and we want it cheap.
