AIDS

<<Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome>>

Because of the AIDS virus, the immune system becomes too weak to fight off infection and ultimately ends in death. It is caught and spread through infected body fluids – saliva, blood, breast milk and sexual excretions. It is often widespread among those who indulge in sexual perversion, especially those having multiple sexual partners (Rom 1:27). 

Our choices bear consequences. The Bible states "Whatever a person sows, that is what they reap" (Gal 6:7,8). Righteousness brings blessing while sin brings judgment and “He who sins sexually sins against his own body” (Prov 7:2, 22:8; 1 Cor 6:18). Those who observe sexual fidelity within marriage drastically reduces their chances of contracting AIDS and other STD's (sexually transmitted diseases). Unfortunately sometimes people have been infected with the virus through blood transfusions, innocent contact with an infected person or through being conceived in their mother who has AIDS. 

Regardless of the circumstances all people are precious to God and we are not to pronounce judgment on them but minister the grace and love of God to them, and point them to our Saviour who wants to be theirs too.
