Lambert Dolphin is a physicist residing in Silicon Valley, California who became a follower of Jesus Christ back in 1962. His interests are eclectic but he is approachable and enjoys many friendships. He will probably answer your email personally if you write him.
My last salaried job ended in 1987 when funding cuts closed down the Radio Physics Lab at SRI International — where I had worked since 1956. (See ldolphin.org/rpl/ for my humorous diary of those 30 years of my life). After leaving SRI, I enjoyed many adventuresome years in “scientific treasure hunting,” (http://ldolphin.org/mycurr.shtml), a dozen trips to Israel, and teaching a bunch of Bible classes.Today, I host a bible study and fellowship group each Wednesday, pray for and answer dozens of emails weekly and read and write prodigiously on my website where I hope you will be blessed to visit.

"Now thanks be to God who always leads us in triumph in Christ, and through us diffuses the fragrance of His knowledge in every place. For we are to God the fragrance of Christ among those who are being saved and among those who are perishing. To the one we are the aroma of death leading to death, and to the other the aroma of life leading to life. And who is sufficient for these things? For we are not, as so many, peddling the word of God; but as of sincerity, but as from God, we speak in the sight of God in Christ." (2 Corinthians 2:14-17
The man in this photo was looking into the camera while saying to himself "I Love You Jesus!" He hopes Jesus' love comes through what he writes!!
"Since the children have flesh and blood, he too shared in their humanity so that by his death he might destroy him who holds the power of death – that is, the devil – and free those who all their lives were held in slavery by their fear of death... For this reason he had to be made like his brothers in every way, in order that he might become a merciful and faithful high priest in service to God" (Hebrews 2:14-17.
Jesus became like man in every way [yet without sin], but did he ever become sick? It is impossible to know the answer for certain, yetit is also virtually almost impossible to imagine Jesus ever being subject to any of the many chronic and degenerative "lifestyle" illnesses which commonly afflict many in our church body today.
Many diseases such as diabetes, atherosclerosis, heart disease, stroke, osteoporosis, macular degeneration, renal problems, GERD, Chrones, IBS, glandular problems, weight gain, chronic fatigue, infertility and many more are oftentimes actually highly treatable with healthy lifestyle, diet, intelligent supplementation, traditional remedies, exercise and rest.
Are you as a believer suffering today with a lifestyle-related disease? Jesus resurrection power has the potential to touch all those he comes into living contact with. Putting first things first - submit the entire matter to the Lord, and the support of your fellowship. At the same time we are not to be foolish and believe we can live in any manner we want - and not suffer health consequences.
"Is any sick among you? let him call for the elders of the church; and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord: And the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up; and if he have committed sins, they shall be forgiven him." (James 5:14-15)

50 I tell you this, brethren: flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God, nor does the perishable inherit the imperishable.
51 Lo! I tell you a mystery. We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, 52 in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised imperishable, and we shall be changed. 53 For this perishable nature must put on the imperishable, and this mortal nature must put on immortality. 54 When the perishable puts on the imperishable, and the mortal puts on immortality, then shall come to pass the saying that is written:
“Death is swallowed up in victory.” 55 “O death, where is thy victory? O death, where is thy sting?”
56 The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law. 57 But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.
