Testimony of Jim Hughes

Hi, my name is Jim Hughes and I would just like to tell you what the Lord Jesus has done for me.
The bible says that Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever and I can definitely confirm this. When I read my bible I learned Jesus healed people, set them free from demonic problems and most of all saved people from their sins. Having been born in Belfast, I ended up in England at a young age.

Unfortunately at a young age I started off on the wrong tract, petty theft soon ballooned onto shop-lifting, breaking into stores etc. By the time I was 18 I had served my third sentence in prison. Then one night I ended up in a big fight which resulted in myself, ending up with a dislocated hip, the person I was fighting with decided it was cramp and tried to straighten (not recommended). Anyhow off I went in an ambulance to the hospital where I was to spend the next 13 weeks. It was the best thing that ever happened to me, because for once it gave me time to think about my life.

I had met Christians before and lying there in hospital I realised that they were happy and weren't destroying their lives like I was. I knew about heaven and hell, but didn't know how to pray, so I just said a simple prayer, "Jesus change me." I thank God that there and then Jesus came into my life and gave me the power to live my life His way.

About a month into my hospital stay I was told to forget about walking again as my leg was paralyzed. After 3 months they sent me out with a caliper on my leg. I literally couldn't even move my toes, there was nothing they could do for me. But what man cannot do, Jesus can. On the first of August 1984 Jesus totally healed my leg and I haven't seen my caliper since. God has given me a lovely family, friends, a good church and so many things. No matter what we have mucked up in life, or what has thrown at us, Jesus can fix it. This I know for sure and hey, He really wants to. Jim Hughes.

Medical theories on the cause of death in crucifixion Matthew W Maslen and Piers D Mitchell

INTRODUCTION Crucifixion may be defined as a method of execution by which a person is hanged, usually by their arms, from a cross or similar structure until dead. It has been used in many parts of the world and in many time periods; but is perhaps best known today as a cruel method of social control and punishment in the Roman Empire around 2000 years ago 1 (pp 22-3). In modern times, the medical profession has shown considerable interest in crucifixion. The typical aim of articles by this group has been to determine how crucified individuals actually died; and they often focus on the case of Jesus of Nazareth. Since Stroud's book of 1847, 2 at least 10 different theories have been proposed ( Table 1 ), and many more articles have been published suggesting various combinations of these theories. The 10 examples referenced in Table 1 have been chosen merely as representing the wide difference of opinion in the published literature: it is not an exhaustive lis

What is TULIP in Calvinism? by Matt Slick

The TULIP of Calvinism is the acronym which represents the five primary points which represent Calvinism : Total depravity, Unconditional election, Limited atonement, Irresistible grace, and Perseverance of the saints. Hence, they are called the five points of Calvinism. The five points "emerged from the Synod of Dort (1618– 19)." 1 "The system of Calvinism adheres to a very high view of scripture and seeks to derive its theological formulations based solely on God’s word. It focuses on God’s sovereignty, stating that God is able and willing by virtue of his omniscience, omnipresence, and omnipotence, to do whatever He desires with His creation. It also maintains that within the Bible are the following teachings: That God, by His sovereign grace predestines people into salvation; that Jesus died only for those predestined; that God regenerates the individual where he is then able and wants to c
