Several players in the National Hockey League have been sidelined for an unusual reason—they have the mumps! Even All-Star Sidney Crosby has come down with the mumps, in spite of being vaccinated against the illness.
This is one disease that we just can’t seem to eradicate. The vaccine for mumps works well for most people, but some who receive the vaccination get the mumps anyway. Their bodies simply don’t respond to the vaccine, therefore the disease continues to make some people sick.
The spiritual disease of sin continues to plague mankind. This goes on in spite of the fact that there is a cure available that works perfectly well for every single human being who will accept it.
“…Jesus Christ, the Righteous One. He is the atoning sacrifice for our sins, and not only for ours but also for the sins of the whole world.”—1 John 2:1-2.
