Do you think that AIDS/HIV is a punishment from God?
Do you think that AIDS/HIV is a punishment from God? I often contemplate that doctors and life science researchers are violating the rule of nature and one day we will paid back. Maybe the terminal diseases are the real pills from the nature. What do you think about it?
I think it is a punishment for man being stupid and make their own choices. But I don't think that every life scientist or doctor is acting against the will of God, just some are acting like they want to be God. I believe that we are each punished according to our own sins and not the sins of someone else.
No I don't think that AIDS/HIV is a punishment from God. The very same attitude of people had lead to the dark ages in Europe when people started believing that plague was a punishment from God and the afflicted people were caught and killed. It's only a matter of time and we will find some treatment for AIDS/HIV.
No, I don't think it is a punishment from God. I think that AIDS/HIV is an illness that like all other illnesses is a result of the original sin and "the fall" in the Garden of Eden. Since the time that Adam and Eve were deceived by Satan, the whole earth has been cursed as a result of disobedience to God.
There are many devastating illnesses, not just AIDS/HIV. I think it would be very wrong not to do what we can to alleviate the suffering of our fellow humans with AIDS/HIV or any other illness. Surely God would judge that. We are to love one another and care for one another, according to God's written Word.
No... If AIDS/HIV is a punishment then it would follow that all disease is punishment. Innocent babies who are free of sin die from AIDS and other disease, what would they be punished for?
absolutely not it a punishment that one causes to their self if any
Sherry Hewins I am totally agree with you whatever you said.....
I don't see how anyone could think that possible due to as Sherry said newborns whose mothers have inflicted the virus on an innocent child or someone who has been a giving and loving person all their life but received a blood transfusion before testing in the early 90's
The most apparent reason is I believe that whom you chose to call God as all and mighty is above all forgiving
It wouldn't surprise me, if it was created in a Lab somewhere, a long time ago.
your kidding right? it's a disease and nothing more. if anything, it's caused by stupidity.
While death is a consequence (not punishment) of our sin, we will all have to face that consequence - disease in and of itself is not a punishment. Terminal illnesses are not just something that's happened in our time, terminal illnesses (such as cancer) have been around since the beginning of human-kind.
If AIDS is a punishment then so is getting hit by a car when you run a red light. For some it's a natural consequence and for others (like babies who get AIDS) it's one of those unfair things that happen, like cancer. Illness doesn't just pick on those that Christianity dubs 'sinners'.
Beyond that, we have no idea how long HIV/AIDS has been around. Most people who die of AIDS actually die of a complications related to AIDS, like pneumonia. AIDS was discovered in the 80's - it didn't just suddenly appear in the 80's, it was discovered. it's probably been there for a long time before that.

I argued with a man who really believed there was no correlation between the virus and AIDS. Has anyone else heard about this, or would like to expound upon it? He believed the disease was many different...
