Bobby Thor~aill, Pastor Centreville & White's ChaIml United Methodist Churches "For God did not send ~Itis~Son into the world to c~ndemn the world, but ~~. world through ~I~W~ millet'be saved." John 3:17 (NKJV) Herein lies the truth about the state of the world and the reason for Jesus' life here on earth that ended in His sacrifi- cial death. Jesus was sent to save the world, so then it follows that the world needs saving. If the world needs saving then it is so that the world stands con- demned. This may sound like repeating the obvious but it is this very fact of condemnation that the lost world will not readily ac- cept. Rationalizing that they are basically "good" and therefore do net need to be saved from anything. The problem with this mind set is that we com- pare ourselves to other hu- mans, easily finding some- one "worse" than we are so that relatively speaking we appear "good." If we consider ourselves to be good or at least better than other folks, then we do not feel the need for salva- tion. This quickly unravels when by reason of convic- tion by the Holy Spirit we find that we are held to much higher expectations than to simply be better than a few other people. We are called to be Holy, to be dedicated to God's service, and we are called to believe in Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior. So many people think that it is sin that condemns; sin can be forgiven. The sin of not trusting Christ as Lord and Savior so that we can be forgiven is what condemns us (vsl8) and in order to be free from that condemnation we must receive His offer of grace through faith for salvation. average case rate of 3.0. "With today's level of air travel and the mobility of world's population, it clear that any disease is only a plane ride away," said MSDH State Epidemiologist Dr. Thomas Dobbs. "Despite the progress made in controlling the disease, the CDC esti- mates that at current levels of progress, it will take at least 100 years to eliminate TB in the U.S." According to the latest numbers released from the CDC, approximately every 64 minutes, someone in the U.S. is diagnosed with TB disease. About one-third of the world's population is currently infect- ed, and a new infection occurs every second. Mississippi has benefited from the use of the latest treatment and diagnostic tools in the fight against TB, but Dobbs said that con- stant diligence is required to identify and treat new cases promptly to reduce the spread of the disease. '~FB rates have remained relatively stable in Mississip- pi over the past several years, but this disease remains a significant public heal~ prob- lem in our state. We continue to be vigilant in our efforts to reduce the incidence of this disease in Mississippi; said Dr. Dobbs. "Expert physicians and nurses at MSDH work tire- lessly to treat and prevent TB every day," he said.

Mycobacterium tuberculo- s/s, the bacterium that causes TB, is expelled into the air when those with TB disease cough or sneeze. Others may become infected when they breathe the bacteria into their lungs. In fact, an esti- mated 90,000 Mississippians currently have TB infection, a form of TB that is not con- tagious but, if left untreated, is capable of becoming active and causing disease.
