Why is there AIDS?
Gen. 3:19 All your life you will sweat to produce food, until your dying day. Then your return to the ground from which you came. For you were made from dust, and to the dust you will return.
When Adam and Eve disobeyed God's command, all of life changed. Sin entered the world, and as a result there is sickness, pain, and death. AIDS, like any disease, is a result of living in a fallen world.
What should be our response be to people with AIDS?
Mark 6:34 A vast crowd was there as he stepped from the boat, and had compassion on them because they were like sheep without a shepherd.
2 Cor. 1:4 He comforts us in all our troubles so that we can comfort others. When others are troubled, we will be able to give them the same comfort God has given us.
God calls us to love, serve, and have compassion for all people.
