LET’S TALK ABOUT THIS THING CALLED “LAMININ” that continues to be passed off as “truth” in congregations and on Facebook.
THE RUMOR SAYS:
“The molecule, Laminin is the protein that holds human beings together. Do you notice its shape? Isn't it amazing that God would think so far in the future, and make the very thing that makes us think of Jesus, make up and play a crucial role in how we are formed? God formed you to not only live as an image of Christ, but to never escape the fact that you are HIS! We are branded by the Cross! He is before all things, and in him all things hold together... Colossians 1:17”
THE RESPONSE: It’s false!
Although it might be very interesting, comparing the shape of the molecule laminin to the death device on which Yeshua died, is a bit of a stretch - for several reasons:
(1) The only symbol YHWH Himself ever designed and told us to make according to HIS instruction was the menorah (Exodus 25:31-40). The shape of laminin would be a whole lot more impressive and plausible IF the laminin was in the shape of a MENORAH!)
(2) The cross has sadly been turned by Catholicism and Christianity into a “symbol of God” which certain other religions are using to ridicule us (i.e., “how can you worship a dead God?”) Many churches today have statues of “Jesus hanging on a cross” – which totally negates that fact that Yeshua overcame Death … he was only on the cross for six hours; not for the last 2,000 years! (By the way, GOD (YHWH/ELOHIM) cannot be born or die; but His Messiah’s human body did. One needs to read the Bible to find out the whole story.)
(3) Fact is, “the cross “was merely a death device used by the Romans, upon which YHWH’s Divine Messiah was crucified. We don't know for sure that Yeshua died on a "cross" per se (some Bible versions translate it as "stake"), and if you Google "cross" you'll see that the shape of the modern Christian cross is from the Latin which looks like a lower case “t” while other "crosses" look like a capital T, a capital X and also a plus sign...
(4) Something to ponder: If Yeshua had been put to death by hanging (or had he been beheaded or died in some other horrible way), would we be willing to wear nooses or swords around our necks or hang them on our walls? Would God really then have made “laminin” into the shape of a noose or sword?
“How” Yeshua died is not indicative of the "stuff of life" that holds us together. Believers get to have eternal life because Yeshua was our Redemption; but the hideous death device upon which he suffered and died, has nothing whatsoever to do with a molecule in our bodies that is coincidentally shaped like the latin "cross"....
The pastors who push this "laminin" idea like to suggest that Colossians 1:17 says, "all things holding together." However, the Aramaic reads:
Colossians 1: 15. who is the likeness of the invisible Elohim and the first-born of all creatures: 16. and by him was created everything that is in heaven and on earth, all that is visible and all that is invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers; everything was through him and was created by  him: 17. and he was prior to all, and by him everything exists. (AENT)
FOOTNOTE: The literal Aramaic reading is “by him”; whereas Greek and English texts have “for him.” Mashiach Yeshua is the creative Word through which everything was made (Psalm 33:6, John 1:1-5, Hebrews 1:1-5). The common Aramaic idiom here, and in John, is "through his hands" meaning as the Word, Mashiach crafted all things according to YHWH's blueprints. Yeshua emerges as the Word from YHWH's breath and command and, as such, was with Him in the beginning (John 17:1-11)
