|All Human Hearts Are Depraved|
Text: "The heart is deceitful above all things and beyond cure. Who can understand it?" Jeremiah 17:9
Right now, my computer has just warned me that there may be a virus in its system. I have unleashed the anti-virus system and hope to rid myself of this intruder. (Be assured that our webmaster will not post this Daily Doctrine until all is well.)
Why are there viruses in these sometimes wonderful things called computers?
Answer? Human depravity.
Then there is the small matter of "spam." Even though my computer guru has installed a firewall and I have anti-spam devices in place, some of the bothersome stuff gets through anyway. Why such problems? The heart is deceitful-- that's why.
Unspeakable monstrosities of pornography are carried and displayed by these very same computers, programmed by sick souls who have been "captured" by a screen.
Our beautiful world has been terribly stained. God alone understands it. And the remedy for this dreadful virus in our world is the precious blood of Jesus.
"We have not been redeemed with corruptible things such as silver and gold, but with the precious blood of Jesus."
Blessed and eternal truth!
