Romans 5:12-13 Therefore, just as sin came into the world through one man, and death came through sin, and so death spread to all because all have sinned—sin was indeed in the world before the law, but sin is not reckoned when there is no law. * * * * * * * * It is a theological concept that we know in our gut is true. Sin tends to go viral. It explodes. It tweets. It infects. It crashes. It transforms good into poison. It sends us all spiralling downward to the lowest form of life - complete and utter selfishness - before it turns us into worm food. And then there is Jesus. One guy born before we even knew the world was round offered our diseased planet a way to deal with the virus so that it wouldn't suck the life out of us. * * * * * * * * If I am bound to be a carrier of sin, may I also be a bearer of good news. Amen.
