Few people know the origin of the word “Pharma”

The Greek word “pharmakia” literally means “drugs”, and appears five times in the New Testament in Gal. 5:20 and in Rev. 9:21, 18:23, 21:8, and 22:15.

“Pharmakia” was translated into the English Bible as either “witchcraft” or “sorceries”. The English word “pharmacy” also comes from the Greek word “pharmakia”.

In each of the five passages mentioned above, “pharmakia”, or “drugs” is listed as a work of the flesh of man as opposed to the Spirit of God working in us.

But just how evil is “pharma” according to scripture? And what then do we do about all the cancer and other debilitating diseases surrounding us if we refuse to go along with the current medical protocol, and “Big Pharma” itself?

As mentioned earlier, the English word for "pharmacy" comes from the Greek word "pharmakeia" which means "sorcery" and "witchcraft". The word "druggist" or "pharmacist" also comes from the Greek word "pharmakon" meaning "poisoner"

The Bible (original King James) uses the word, “pharmacea” for witchcraft and sorcery where it literally means “drug abuse”.

It may be legal drug abuse or it may be illegal drug abuse, but if there is any substance that has control over you, the Bible says that it is witchcraft.    

In Galatians 5:20-21 Paul speaks of this along with dissentions, factions, envy, drunkenness, orgies, and the like when he says,  “I warn you as I did before that those who live like this will not inherit the kingdom of God.”

But perhaps the biggest clue to the spirit of “Big Pharma” is towards the end of the bible: "For by thy sorceries (pharmacea) were all nations deceived. And in her was found the blood of prophets, and of saints, and of all that were slain upon the earth". Rev. 18:23,24.

Paul says in Ephesians 6:12: “For we wrestle not against flesh and blood but against principalities and powers, against rulers of darkness in high places ”

It seems obvious to me that the Spirit of Sorcery and Witchcraft within Big Pharma, as they lie to us all day and night on TV trying to get us "hooked" by saying, "Ask your doctor", is one of the strongest principalities in high places that we have in this world!

 Most people, Christians included, just smile, look on, and don't even notice that this is actually hypnotizing and does in fact get many people with low self-control "hooked" on these drugs.
This modern day situation of forced pharmaceutical control over what doctors can or can't prescribe would fit the description in Revelation 18 perfectly!

Elsewhere the Bible says, “The love of money is the root of all evil”. (1st Timothy 6:10) It does not say, “Having a lot of it” or “Working in a business with a lot of it”, it says “The love of it”. The Bible also says, “By their fruits you will know them” (Matthew 7:20)

It is glaringly obvious that the "fruits" of “Big Pharma” shows a huge "love of money" when they’re continuing to push chemo therapy and a host of other harmful drugs to people in spite of numerous proven scientific research into their harmful effects.

However, I am not saying "You are going to hell because you take an aspirin now and then or give one to your child!" Nor am I saying that if you are old and have been taking a lot of Pharma-drugs for a long time that you should just suddenly stop taking them!

I believe God has taken great pity on mankind simply because in most cases people are merely "Taking their good doctor's advice".

Paul also says in the Bible ”There is therefore now no condemnation to them who are in  Jesus Christ who walk not after the flesh but after the Spirit” (Romans 8:1)

However, as Christians , we should at the very least, know when our cunning adversary is trying to devour us (In body or spirit) and try to stay away from ever letting it happen!  Remember, If you do want to get off all your drugs please do it under advice form a professional healthcare practitioner. Drug withdrawals can kill you if not done with the proper supervision and control.
I know there are many Christian MDs who prescribe pharmaceutical drugs all day, pushing the deadly protocol of Big Pharma. These doctors and their patients are both victims of the cruel and immensely evil sorcery of Pharmacea!

When the bible says, “It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God”, (Matthew 19:24) one can't help but wonder just how does this apply to those involved in Big Pharma pushing it's many harmful drugs.

I pray we all see the day when a natural remedy like cannabis and many other, are ‘decriminalised’ and doctors can without fear of losing their licences, freely prescribe medicinal cannabis and a variety of other natural, scientific proven effective remedies, to their patients.  
There are signs that more and more medical practitioners are coming forward in support of these natural drugs, but as in the case of cannabis, it still remains an “illegal” drug.

At first glance it may appear that there is no difference between these two concepts. On closer investigation however, we find that there is a vast difference between the two concepts.


Management Information refers to the processing of information through computers and other means to manage and support managerial decisions within an organization.

The concept include systems that are referred to as transaction processing system, decision support system, expert system, or executive information system.

The term is often used in the academic study of businesses and has connections with other areas, such as information systems, information technology, informatics, e-commerce and computer science and as a result the term is used interchangeably with some of these areas.

Management Information Systems (plural) as an academic discipline studies people, technology, organizations, and the relationships among them.

This definition relates specifically to "MIS" as a course of study in business schools. Many business schools (or colleges of business administration within universities) have an MIS department, alongside departments of accounting, finance, management, marketing, and may award degrees (at undergraduate, master, and doctoral levels) in Management Information Systems.

MIS professionals are in big demand to help organizations to maximize the benefit from investments in personnel, equipment, and business processes.

The actions that are taken to create an information system that solves an organizational problem is called system development. These include system analysis, system design, computer programming/implementation, testing, conversion, production and finally maintenance.

Conversion is the process of changing or converting the old system into the new. This can be done in three basic ways:

1. Direct cut – The new system replaces the old at an appointed time.

2. Parallel implementation - both old and new systems run at the same time until developers are certain the new system is operating correctly.

3. Pilot study - Introducing the new system to a small portion of the operation to see how it fares. If results are good then the new system expands to the rest of the company.


Information management on the other hand deals with the scientific management of the masses of information out there that may be needed or even required by organisations to perform their functions aimed at their organisational success and strategy.

Information Management (IM) actually comprises a cycle of organizational activities:

a. the acquisition of information from one or more sources,
b. the custodianship and the distribution of that information to those who need it, and
c. its ultimate disposition through archiving or deletion.

This cycle of organisational involvement with information involves a variety of stakeholders.

For example there are those who are responsible for the quality, accessibility and utility of the acquired information, those who are responsible for its safe storage and disposal, and those who need it for decision making.

Stakeholders might have rights to originate, change, distribute or delete information according to organizational information management policies.

Information management embraces all the generic concepts of management, including:
planning, organising, structuring, processing, controlling, evaluation and reporting of information activities, all of which is needed in order to meet the needs of those with organisational roles or functions that depend on information. These generic concepts allow the information to be presented to the audience or the correct group of people.

After individuals are able to put that information to use it then gains more value.

Information management is closely related to, and overlaps with, the management of data, systems, technology, processes and – where the availability of information is critical to organisational success and strategy.

This broad view of the realm of information management contrasts with the earlier, more traditional view, that the life cycle of managing information is an operational matter that requires specific procedures, organisational capabilities and standards that deal with information as a product or a service.

It is commonly believed that good information management is crucial to the smooth working of organisations, and although there is no commonly accepted theory of information management per se, behavioural and organisational theories help.

Most of what goes on in modern organizations is actually information handling and decision making.

One crucial factor in information handling and decision making is an individual's ability to process information and to make decisions under limitations that might derive from the context: a person's age, the situational complexity, or a lack of requisite quality in the information that is at hand – all of which is exacerbated by the rapid advance of technology and the new kinds of system that it enables, especially as the social web emerges as a phenomenon that business cannot ignore.

And yet, well before there was any general recognition of the importance of information management in organisations, academics in the field of management argued that organizations have to be considered as cooperative systems, with a high level of information processing and a vast need for decision making at various levels.

Additionally modern day academics propose a notion of ‘satisfactory information’ which entails searching through all the available alternatives until an acceptability threshold is met.

In addition to the organisational factors there are other issues that stem from economic and environmental dynamics.

There is the cost of collecting and evaluating the information needed to take a decision, including the time and effort required.

The transaction cost associated with information processes can be high. In particular, established organizational rules and procedures can prevent the taking of the most appropriate decision, leading to sub-optimum outcomes.

This is an issue that has been presented as a major problem with bureaucratic organizations that lose the economies of strategic change because of entrenched attitudes.

There are many ways to see a business, and the information management viewpoint is only one such way.

It is important to remember that other areas of business activity will also contribute to strategy – it is not only good information management that moves a business forwards.

Corporate governance, product development, human resource management, and marketing will all have an important role to play in strategic ways, and we must not see one domain of activity alone as the sole source of strategic success.

On the other hand, corporate governance, human resource management, product development and marketing are all dependent on effective information management, and so in the final analysis our competency to manage information well, must be predominant.


Where an organisation has invented a new product, provide a unique service or provide information that the organisation has developed, it better make sure that they protect their intellectual property, so that other unscrupulous parties do not make profits off their hard work.

Intellectual property is basically any creation of the human mind, such as an invention, a specific brand name, books, etc. which have both a moral and a commercial value.

IP protection encourages the publication, distribution and disclosure of the creation to the public, rather than keeping it secret while at the same time encouraging commercial enterprises to select creative works for exploitation.

Intellectual property rights, which include patents, trademarks and designs, are the legal framework that protects the creators of these works.

Intellectual Property protection is intended to stimulate the creativity of the human mind for the benefit of all by ensuring that the advantages derived from exploiting a creation benefit the creator.

For this reason control over the intangible asset (IPR) connotes control of the product and markets.

Proper and effective management of information is for all intents and purpose the only way to encourage creative within the organisation and allowing investors a safe and fair return on their investment.
