One of the mysteries of medicine concerns the epidemic of influenza that swept around the world in 1918. Called "Spanish influenza," the disease suddenly began in March of 1918 and ended just as suddenly in November of the same year. During that time over 21 million people died. The disease struck every country on earth! While the virus that caused it was finally identified in the 1930's, no one knows how the epidemic got started and no one knows why it suddenly ended.

It will come as no surprise that sin is in the world in epidemic proportions. It claims its victims in every land. But we know how the epidemic got started. It started with Adam and Eve in Eden. And we know how the epidemic will end. It will end when the kingdoms of this world become the kingdom of our God and of His Christ.
