“Bishop” E.W. Jackson, the Republican nominee to be the next lt. governor of Virginia, wrote a book in 2008 called Ten Commandments to an Extraordinary Life and it contained some truly loopy ideas. Like this one. Did you know that sin causes birth defects?
Keep in mind that the whole cosmos has been made imperfect — wounded — by sin. It is the principle of sin, rebellion against God and His truth which has brought about birth defects and other destructive natural occurrences. Leaving aside that for a moment, recent discoveries about the genetic code of each human being are a fulfillment of scripture. Your genetic code is the handwriting of God, written before you or the world existed. Our genetic blueprint is proof of the existence of the Living God and His infinite intelligence, purpose and design. Sadly, many will ignore the deeper spiritual truth which underlies the advance of this scientific knowledge.
Yes, sadly many will ignore this absolutely moronic claim. So sad. I bet Eve eating that apple also caused entropy.
