    Innerancy...

    Aids epidemic...

    Sept 11...

    Churches response to Homosexuality...

    Any other issues important that you can think of...

    Just one little part of scripture to ponder:

    Read Hebrews chapter 13.

    Note that verse 8 says Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.

    The AIDS epidemic may not be real.

    It is not a leading cause of death and is typically limited to high risk activities such as intravenous drug use and promiscuous homosexuality. It typically only enters the hetersexual community when the hetersexual is closely linked with those in high risk groups.

    The book Bias by Bernard Goldberg touches on this media phenomenon.

    So many people have WWJD stuff, but most don't know "What DID Jesus do?"

    Katie,

    I am not saying that AIDS does not affect ordinary people through blood transfusions, etc. Any who have contracted the disease this way have my deepest sympathies. It is a horrible disease that wreaks havoc on individuals and families.

    However, the AIDS "epidemic" has not materialized, especially concerning the heterosexual community. You're way more likely to contract AIDS through high risk activity, including promiscuous homosexual sex, intravenous drug use, and sex with intravenous drug users.

    Quick facts(1985-1999)
    CDC web page(view the PDFs under Comprehensive Data)

    total reported cases:.............720,925

    cases involving homosexual activity,
    intravenous drug use,
    or heterosexual sex with
    a drug user:........................594,570

    percentage:.............................82%

    If you consider that 67,101 cases have no specified cause, but are more than likely caused by high risk activity because of fear of admission, then the percentage jumps to 91%.

    Remember, the numbers are for 15 years. The average per year is about 50,000 new cases, while less than 15,000 died in 1999 as a result of AIDS. That is far less than the over 700,000 who died of heart disease in 2000.
