Dave Barry said that the solution to the health care crisis was this: "Medical science should stop coming out with new disorders. We already have plenty of disorders, but every time you open a newspaper you see an article about how medical science has discovered a new disease."

Of course, we recognize the difference between discovery and invention, but there do seem to be many new diseases. Spiritually, however, we are still plagued by the same old disease, sin. The symptoms may vary, but the disease remains the same. And as there are no new spiritual diseases, there are no new cures for the old disease. "What can wash away my sin? Nothing but the blood of Jesus."
