CLARITY

A Biblical Response to Current Events – 5-29-18

 

Inoculated

 

What’s Happening:  “The development of an experimental vaccine given to some health workers in the Congo may reinvigorate the fight against the ebola outbreak there that has already claimed 28 lives. The virus, depending on the strain, may have as much as a 90% mortality rate (https://www.yahoo.com/news/ebola-vaccinations-begin-congos-northwest-town-bikoro-154045625.html). ‘We who are on the front lines of caring for the sick. We are reassured,’ said Dr. Serge Ngaleboto, Director of Bikoro Hospital.”

 

Knee-Jerk Response:  “As long as travel to the U.S. is restricted, I don’t have worry, right?”

 

Biblical Response:  “Probably not. Although the vaccine that’s being administered is only experimental, the only way to get ebola is by direct contact with body fluids…unless you plan a trip to Africa in the near future, you probably don’t have to worry about it…I said probably. There are always mosquitoes, rats and genetic mutation. ”

 

“Christians? Of course, we believe in science, but there is an insidious disease that is even more deadly, and has eternal consequences. Of course, I’m talking about sin…with which we are all infected…and the only known cure is bloodborne: the blood of Jesus (1 John 1:7). As the song goes: “What can wash away my sin? Nothing but the blood of Jesus!”

 

”Here’s a Prayer You Can Pray:  “Heavenly Father, let us not fear the loss of our bodies, but let us fear instead the loss of our souls (Luke 12:5)…in Jesus’ Name, amen.”   © Alan E.Sargent
