For anyone to exact control over another person/group of people's minds, they have to perform the following acts/magic

PEER GROUP PRESSURE - Suppressing doubt and resistance to new ideas by exploiting the need to belong. If my husband is muslim, i have to try and act as one or else!!!

CONFUSING DOCTRINE - Encouraging blind acceptance and rejection of logic through complex lectures on an incomprehensible doctrine. Most of the time, you have to choose either to accept or reject some passages and choose sides as they can never make sense unless you just are coaxed to accept blindly.

REMOVAL OF PRIVACY - Achieving loss of ability to evaluate logically by preventing private contemplation. Also you will have to confess or spy for the leader, as there can be nothing hidden from the master planner.

DISINHIBITION - Encouraging child-like obedience by orchestrating child-like behaviour. unless you are a kid or born again childish mentality, you can not be obidient enough or clean enough.

UNCOMPROMISING RULES - Inducing regression and disorientation by soliciting agreement to seemingly simple rules which regulate mealtimes, bathroom breaks and use of medications. Medication??? hell no..........But am sure the ones that drink the wine as the blood know what am talking about unless if alcohol is not medical, and does the inductrination not create a certain acceptance of wine Smiley

DRESS CODES - Removing individuality by demanding conformity to the group dress code.

CHANTING OR SINGING - Eliminating non-cult ideas through group repetition of mind-narrowing chants or phrases. you can motivate people to perform certain action at certain times if you can find the right chant!!!

CHANGE OF DIET - Creating disorientation and increased susceptibility to emotional arousal by depriving the nervous system of necessary nutrients through the use of special diets and/or fasting. If you mouth and the type of things you put in it can be controlled, wooow.

Men! who performed this magic?

My dear FASTING is under the Law of Moses and that LAW was nailed to the cross on Jesus Christ death and resurrection. Under Faith (Jesus Christ) we are not to be fasting but living a life of obedience by reading our bible and applying it in our life. FASTING was a way of afflicting ourselves before God. The LAW show us our sinful Nature. The LAW was for the JEWS but Jesus died for the whole world and this is the reasons the LAW was abolished.  Persons who are not obedient to Jesus Christ will FAST and put themselves under sickness and then talk how Christian Life Hard and expensive. lol lol After them finished fasting they have to go to the doctor with some form of complain. You know why because they obey Satan and not Jesus Christ. God is a loving and compassionate God and so is His Son. When we disobey we go to Him in prayers the same day/ night and ask for FORGIVENESS OF SINS. That is why Jesus told us in the Heavenly Father Prayer, "Forgive us has we forgive those who trespass against us". If you are serving a Religion then you can Fast and continue live in Sin but if you are serving Jesus Christ then abide by His commandments live in obedience.

Christian life is not hard. Live in the world but don't be of it. Jesus Christ is Wisdom by accepting Him and reading the bible you will get understanding through the Holy Ghost. If you were not baptized in the Father, Son and Holy Ghost I would advice you to. Under the Law you cannot receive the Holy Ghost because it only comes with accepting Jesus Christ has your Lord and Savior.  Through Faith and obedience you will reap untold blessings.

Matt 5 vs 17-18 and Galatians 3 talk about the LAW and FAITH. Hugs and blessings

Jesus Christ never FAST. When John Baptist disciples came to Jesus and asked Him why his disciples are eating and drinking during fasting, Jesus answered why should they. He said he was with them and there is no need. Then He went on to talked about placing new cloth on a old garment, putting new wine in a old wine skin. He also said that persons say the old way is better.

You see Jesus was telling us that the new way of fasting will come but not while the old one is still standing. Fasting is from the LAW of Moses and Jesus know that the Law will become obsolete upon his death and resurrection. The new way of afflicting ourselves when we sins is FORGIVING OTHERS so that we can be forgiven, going before God in prayers through Jesus Christ and confessing our Sins.  As long As you don't forgive a person who wrong you, your prayers will never be answer.  No matter how much FASTING you want to do. lol lol We should live a life of obedience.

Now Jesus Christ never FAST he was lead in the wilderness by the Spirit of the Lord to be tempted by the Devil. This temptation was to teach us how to overcome the Devil by using the word of God to Him with Truth and authority. Persons associated it with FASTING because the first thing that the devil came up with was food. lol lol That was Jesus time to be tempted by the devil and nothing to do with FASTING.

Before the Trial and Death of Jesus Christ. He showed us how to overcome Trials - By Praying, this was done on Mount Olive,  Temptation - by using the word of God against the Devil. But always remember that Jesus Christ had the Spirit of Truth (The Father Himself) inside of Him. To have the Spirit of Truth you have to be obedient by reading the Bible.

Am not going to quote no bible scriptures here. Go read the books of Gospel it is all there. Jesus Christ mentioned about Fasting in Matt 6 vs 16 please remember that He just began His Ministry and so has to talk this way. Further down in the book of Matthew you will see how He started to cement His authority. It is in Chapter 5 he spoke about the fulfillment of the Law of Moses. - Blessings
