It is hard not to see a message in all this. Because the vast majority of AIDS sufferers contact the disease through abuse of their own bodies (promiscuous sexual activity and drug abuse), the message seems to be clear: STOP ABUSING YOUR BODIES. The connection is not unlike that between heavy smoking and lung cancer or alcoholism and cirrhosis (liver disease). Avoiding temptation isnâ€™t always easy, but with God nothing is impossible. We respect our body as a gift from God. We aim for a healthy lifestyle in order to better serve Him in this life before entering the life beyond where there surely will be no AIDS or any other disease.

Ed. Comment - Score One for China by Warren Krug (May-August, 2001)
Some Chinese officials argue that the theory of evolution is too "politically charged" in the West. These officials say that Western researchers hesitate to point out Darwinian shortcomings for fear of giving support to creationists. "Evolution is facing an extremely harsh challenge," says the Communist Partyâ€™s Guang Ming Daily. "In the beginning, Darwinian evolution was a scientific theory. . .In fact, evolution eventually changed into a religion."
Wisdom - Not Editorial by Warren Krug (January-February, 2001)
A survey was taken last year of 1,300 members of the Freedom From Religion Foundation. It discovered that the average freethinker is considerably more educated and intellectual than the typical American.
What are Bible-believing Christians to think of dinosaurs? Over the years not all Christians have accepted their existence. Even today we hear a voice or two claiming that the dinosaur fossils are fossils directly created by God and placed in the ground merely to test our faith. However, the discovery of vast numbers of bones, tracks, and other fossils of creatures not known to exist today are not so easy to dismiss, nor is it at all necessary to do so. Not only is there nothing we really know about dinosaurs that conflicts in any way with the Bible and a traditional, Biblical understanding of the history of the world, but the Bible may actually contain direct support for a belief in the existence of dinosaurs.
One of the most widely-quoted proofs for evolution, which in reality was no proof at all, is now apparently in serious trouble. Scientists are quietly admitting that the famous pepper-moth experiments are "essentially useless."
God's Wrath Against Mankind Review by Lloyd Tiegs (November-December, 1999)
Excerpt: "Siegbert W. Becker in his book, The Foolishness of God, in which he looks at Lutherans’ understanding of human reason states, 'It is not Christianity that needs to be made reasonable. It is reason that needs to be made Christian.'"
