The swine flu has recently caused a worldwide hysteria! We have seen on TV people in different countries wearing those masks, hoping that this will defend them from the virus; worried people have flooded the hospitals after getting a simple flu or having a runny nose or a simple cough or a sore throat or… they even have just eaten pork a week ago… And the hysteria goes on, and people are worried about their physical health. And yet, as the article to which I linked above says, a simple seasonal flu may be more dangerous than the swine flu…
The flu appeared to be epidemic. The media is talking about it a lot. People are afraid of it and don’t want to die… They don’t know the details about this new virus… All these and similar reasons caused the hysteria. And yet, as the article mentions, the simple seasonal flu results in “hundreds of thousands of hospitalizations” and roughly 35,000 fatalities each year in the United States…
People do not want to get physically sick. People do not want to physically die… And yet, there is a sickness much worse and much more dangerous than any physical sickness, and the majority do not care about it: it is sin. And guess what: sin is a sickness that all humans have for sure, and it has a cure that surely saves any human from it and from its result.
In the Word of God, the Bible, sin is the spiritual swine sickness. It causes the spiritual death of 100% of sinners who are not cured:
“For the wages of sin is death” (Romans 6:23)
And yet the cure is available; it is the blood of Jesus Christ. It is given by God as a gift for free, and it CERTAINLY cures from sin and from eternal death in Hell:
“the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.” (Romans 6:23)
And yet, people do not care about it…
“how will we escape if we neglect so great a salvation?” (Hebrews 2:3)
Dear friend, please do not neglect the Salvation of your soul. Read this article for more details.
Grace be with you!
