For 6 months or so I have been having bible studies with members of the local Tucson Worldwide Missions Society Church of God.

There are some very sweet people in that church, I enjoyed getting to know them (Johnathan and Denise especially - awesome people).

I am relatively new to studying the Bible (maybe 2 years?), so I was very open to hear what their understanding of the Holy Book was: especially considering they believe themselves to be in the "one true church" through which salvation can be had.

The story is cleverly written, but something in me screams "OH HELL NO!" when it comes to worshipping a human woman as God, which when you get past the baby food to the "steak" is what's happening in there.

Me: .... "Uhm - that's a human woman, and you believe she's God?"...
Church: "Yes, because Revelation 22:17, Revelation 21:9-10, Galatians 4:26, Revelation 19:7, Zecheriah 14:8, and Ezekiel 47:1" and "ahnsanghong was the second coming christ who she is spiritually married to"......
Me: ....."I don't understand"....

I am actually quite disturbed since finding this out.
For anyone who has read the bible, should it not be clear that YHVH does not like idol worship?

Pan Seared Lemon Pepper Broccoli
This is a super simple recipe, and really delicious. It has become my favorite way to eat broccoli. The 4th ave Food Conspiracy Co-op sometimes has it in their hot deli section.. not sure if my version is exactly the same but it's pretty good anyway.

Ingredients:
  • Broccoli (chopped, 1 head fresh or 1 bag frozen)
  • 1 TBS fresh lemon juice
  • red pepper flakes (I use the little packets from pizza hut deliveries)
  • soy sauce (1 tsp or less).
  • sprinkle of sesame seeds

Instructions:
Pan sear the broccoli (cook it on medium heat, covered, on one side until browned, then stir and cook a bit longer to your satisfaction).
Transfer broccoli to a dish and add the other ingredients according to your taste.

Don't overdo the soy-sauce or you'll ruin it.



 
 
mooncake from Lee Lee's
I found these things called "Moon Cakes" at a local (Tucson) asian market called "Lee Lee's". I bought a couple varieties - some were more simple (just sweet and doughy), but these ones in the photo were quite a pleasant surprise - filled with an extravaganza of nuts and seeds and dried fruit.

Really neat and delicious... seriously one of the coolest things I have ever eaten. I bet it would be a fun thing to learn to bake and get creative with the ingredients!
