Focus on the Symptoms? Focus on the Disease?

Come let us reason together: When the body is showing symptoms of a disease, it’s very important to treat the symptoms, however, if that’s where we place our focus, in the end, the patient will die; however, if we place our focus on the cause of the symptoms – and aggressively treat the disease the symptoms will decrease and most will live.

When we see children dying of starvation in today’s world, it’s very important to treat the symptoms and we will save some; however, if we do not focus on the disease, the problem will eventually increase exponentially to the point that it will become completely unmanageable – which we are now seeing throughout the world.

When we see the family structure dissolve before our eyes in today’s world, it’s very important to treat the symptoms and we will save some; however, if we do not focus on the disease, the problem will eventually increase exponentially to the point that it will become completely unmanageable – which we are now seeing throughout the world.

So what should we do? Focus on the symptoms, or focus on the disease which is causing the symptoms? What is the disease? The last two are spiritual; so let’s get back to focusing more on the Gospel than the symptoms and save even more.

In this day of apostasy it’s much easier to focus on and support that which we see and not that which we do not see. That said, due to living in the prophesied age of the Great Apostasy, we need diligence and prayer so we do not support a false – an adulterated Gospel.

As it’s written, they will adulterate the Gospel to avoid offending – to avoid the offence of the cross to further the business of religion, deceived into thinking they’re doing a great work for Almighty God as they count the numbers.

2 Timothy 4:3: “For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but wanting to have their ears tickled, they will accumulate for themselves teachers in accordance to their own desires.” (NASB)
