“In his book, Our God Breathed Book – The Bible, the late Dr. John R. Rice, said:
“The Bible gives the most accurate, definite, brief statement of the use of the blood in the body, a statement which is absolutely scientific. Leviticus 17:11 says, ‘For the life of the flesh is in the blood.’
“‘For example, in 1799, George Washington died…This greatest man in America, one of the greatest in world history, had a doctor called. The doctor bled Washington three times, and the last time took more than a quart of his blood. From his sickness Washington might have recovered if he had had his blood. But the doctor, the scientist of his day, had not yet discovered what the Bible had been saying for many centuries. He did not know that he was draining away the life of the father of his country into a bucket, when he took the blood from Washington’s veins. He foolishly thought that most illnesses were caused by too much blood. And practically all of the scientists of his day were agreed with that poor doctor.’
“Rice’s words, which are correct in principle, give me pause about the COVID 19 crisis. We need to be careful about how much faith we place in the “experts.” Sometimes they don’t get it right. We should heed their warnings, but we must also be wise. We cannot afford to have a totally passive attitude toward medical practitioners to the point that they run our lives.
“One thing is for certain, the blood of Jesus, God’s Son, cleanses us from all sin (I John 1:7). It purifies our hearts to live forever in the presence of God.
“Have you received Christ? His blood was shed on the Cross to redeem you. His blood is sin’s vaccine.”
