In these last days before the return of the Lord Jesus, people have rejected Biblical morality. It is considered socially acceptable to be involved in fornication, adultery, sodomy etc. The term, if it feels good then do it applies in these last days. Even the threat of deadly disease that will maim and kill does not stop the immoral. They believe the delusion that STD's are for someone else and somehow they will not get infected.

Folks, this is not rational thinking. It is the ultimate in self-centeredness and self gratification. It is the way lost hellbound sinners live for the "NOW" with no concern for their eternity. The rich do the same thing. These people trust in their riches and have no time for God's salvation found in the Lord Jesus. As a result when the lost die, hell is a big surprise!

Lost people spend all their time living for pleasure and pursuing earthly treasures. They delude themselves to believe that it will last forever. But after a few short years these lost people die and they perish in their sins.

The end result is an eternity in torment paying the penalty for their sins. Lost people reject the Lord Jesus who died in their place so a person does not have to perish in hell. Yet lost people reject God's salvation and in doing so choose to pay for their own sins by themselves.

John 3
16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.
18 He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.
19 And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.

Mark 8
36 For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?

In light of this introduction, here is a portion of an article about a new STD coming for the immoral.

A foreign STD sets off worry in Hub May signal return of risky sex habits
By Stephen Smith, Globe Staff | May 30, 2005

A sexually transmitted disease rarely seen in recent decades in the United States has reemerged in Boston and other American cities in the past six months, fostering fears that it could herald a new wave of infections of an even more dangerous disease, AIDS.

The return of lymphogranuloma venereum, known as LGV, to North America also illustrates the increasing globalization of infectious diseases in an era of rapid air transit and frequent travel for work and pleasure, disease specialists said.

At the Fenway Community Health clinic in Boston, for example, one patient told a physician he probably caught the germ while visiting Brazil; the disease is endemic to Latin America, Africa, and Southeast Asia. Disease trackers who investigated a cluster of cases in the Netherlands in 2003 found that infected patients had multiple sex partners across Europe and the United States.

''This is probably a case of biological tourism," said Dr. Daniel Cohen, a specialist in infectious diseases who has treated patients with the condition at the Fenway clinic. ''It just points out that we live in a global community and that illnesses are no longer confined by geographical boundaries."

Since January, six cases of LGV have been confirmed in Massachusetts, according to Dr. Alfred DeMaria, the state's director of communicable disease control.

The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is sufficiently concerned by the reappearance of the bacterial infection that it is working to establish a surveillance system to monitor the disease nationwide and to develop better screening for it in health clinics. Dr. Hillard Weinstock, a medical epidemiologist at CDC, said the agency hopes to have those measures in place within six months.

So far, incidences of the disease in the United States appear to be limited to gay and bisexual men, and infectious disease specialists said they fear that it could be another signal that after years of hewing to safe-sex practices, gay men are returning to riskier behaviors.

''We hadn't seen an LGV case for years," DeMaria said. ''It's definitely a sign of unsafe sex, and that's a concern in terms of other sexually transmitted diseases and HIV. Now, I think we're at the point that people need to pay attention to it."

For several years, DeMaria and other disease specialists have been sounding an alarm about sharp increases in syphilis and gonorrhea cases among gay men. After AIDS dawned in the 1980s, gay men dramatically altered their sexual behavior. The result: Rates of sexually transmitted diseases plummeted.

That changed with the arrival of potent drug cocktails that fundamentally altered the course of the epidemic in the developed world. AIDS went from a presumed death sentence to a chronic, but treatable, medical condition, and, at the same time, some gay men grew weary of the safe-sex messages that had blared for nearly two decades.
