For some years now medical authorities have worried that super-bugs would limit the effectiveness of anti-biotics. That would produce a colossal reversal in the effectiveness of medicine. No one’s health would profit. Anti-biotics became necessary because folk medicine had limited effectiveness.
The long-dreaded return of a long-gone disease is upon us. Even now the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention notes that at least 2 million annually contract anti-biotic resistant infections. At least 23,000 die. San Diego U-T, 5/30/17
A new generation of medicines must be developed if the medical profession is to continue to improve the nation’s health. Time will tell if our geniuses are equal to the challenge.
Preachers never worry that the message of Christ’s cross weakens before Satan’s increasing wickedness. That Satan will produce a Super Sin that baffles, weakens or destroys Christ’s cleansing power over ALL SIN! From the Garden of Eden to the day Jesus died, the shedding of blood delayed God’s punishment of sin—the legacy of the Jewish Day of Atonement. On the day Jesus died, to this very day, the Master’s blood, shed to forgive all sin from Adam on to the end of history, has removed, not delayed God’s punishment of sin.
No Satanic wickedness can become too great for Christ’s blood to remove. It takes only Christians being honest with unsaved people: you’re lost in sin. And telling them the good news: Jesus died for you and he’ll forgive any sin you have committed or will before you die.
Both factors have to be at the center of Christian outreach. We dare not overlook human sin in an effort to make our appeal more amenable. That will only disgrace Christ’s sacrifice and remove his invincible Presence from our outreach. Stressing human sin to the unsaved energizes the Gospel with an appeal to sinners. What they need to hear, and long to hear, is hope for escape from sin. And Jesus is that HOPE. All repentant sinners have access to the power of GRACE in forgiveness by accepting Jesus as Savior and being baptized for the forgiveness of their sin.
