To the Editor:
COVID-19, terrifying many and disrupting the world as we know it. Initially I was alarmed and unduly concerned about it. Then I went to my Bible (Best Instructions Before Leaving Earth) and read the words of Jesus, “And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell." – Matthew 10:28
We should be wise about COVD-19. But there is a virus that infects all mankind, it is a virus called “sin.” Make no mistake about it, the end result of sin is manifoldly more serious than COVID-19. The end result of this virus is eternal damnation if not treated. There is a sure cure for this malady. The cure is available for all. "This is a faithful saying, and worthy of all acceptation, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners; of whom I am chief." – 1 Timothy 1:15
This cure is a free gift received by Acts 20:21b repentance toward God, and faith toward our Lord Jesus Christ. Which by definition is to be “born again."
"The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is long-suffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance." – 2 Peter 3:9 Do this and you will no longer be in bondage to fear.
