I've heard the "fasting is Old Testament" and I'm wrong for teaching that. Let me address this,  because only someone unfamiliar with the Bible could say that. 
Fasting happened in the Old Testament. They called public or 'corporate' fasts, like in Esther 4 or Acts 13, there were private personal fasts too.  Fasting happened in the New Testament too! Jesus fasted. Jesus said his Disciples (that's you!) should be fasting Mark 2:20. In fact have Jesus taught His Disciples about fasting on several occasions,  and He said WHEN not IF in Matthew 6:16–1. That sounds like a command to me. The New Testament church was fasting in Acts 14:21-23 and other places. The Apostle Paul wrote that he fasted a lot, 2 Corinthians 11:23–28. He taught that husbands and wives should do fasting together in 1Cor7:5. And I will give you a lot more new Testament Scriptures too if you like. 

So all throughout the Bible it says fasting is good,  and you should be doing it. So lets do it. 
I don't teach doctrine. I teach the Word of God. I don't teach debatable stuff,  I'm not trying to get you to pray to Mary, talk in tongues or drink red Kool aid. If you don't want to do the Four Legs it's because you haven't been shown their value.  So call me,  and I will take the time to talk with you about it. 

Fasting moves you forward. If you dont want to do it, if you wanna be left behind that's OK. Don't hold anyone else back. If it makes you uncomfortable, if you don't believe in it,  I'm sure you can find a Christian organization that won't teach it or push you closer to the cross. In this one we are going to the next level. 

Do jump in with us, lets get it on!
