Sin may be the cause of diseases?

Much has been speculated about the origin of diseases! But surely the question we put to this article has not left him indifferent. You wonder: who would think mixing sin with disease? What has that to do with scientific rigor?

I encourage you to never give up and keep reading.

Theories about the cause of aging, illness and death
Since the beginning of humanity, man has sought the cause or causes, etiology of the disease. There are so many theories that have been described that could not be enumerated. Getting closer to our modern times Pasteur said that microbes were the cause of disease, and is a concept that remains very much alive. Bernard, of the same age as Pasteur said that the land with environmental factors were those that produced an internal imbalance.

Many scientists now tell us that the key lies in the genetic code and that the research and implementation of stem cells may solve an endless disease.

Others tell us that the duplication of cells should theoretically keep the body forever. Even the brain cells that were said not to be replaced, some researchers like Paul A. Weiss suggests that while not divide in adults, consistently made "spare parts" and thus continue to be renewed.

Some say the DNA of every cell is like a computer that has a "program" for life, but that over time the program ends. Other scientists speculate that the repeated duplication of cells to DNA blocks with "clerical error." Compare this to return to record continuously pretty melody, which over time becomes an unrecognizable noise. Some believe that the cell is poisoned with age. Others say that the body forgets what to do and commit suicide to reject its own cells as to reject a transplanted organ.

Many of these theories have been formulated because of experiments like those who did Alexis Carrel kept alive for over thirty years living cells in cultures of chick embryos. However, some such as Leonard Hayflick, criticized this experiment, according to Scientific American March 1968 because it conducted improperly.

Whatever the theory about the cause of aging and disease, the amazing level of DNA is not programmed now to support cells in perfect balance. In old age they wear out and die are not always replaced by new cells through cell division. So follow the degeneration and death.

Forever? It is possible that the concept of eternal life seems absurd, but is it really? Scientists believe they already know why cells age. Certain sections of genetic material called telomeres, which lie at the ends of chromosomes, shorten each time the cell divides. Occurring by 50 to 100 divisions, the telomeres are worn and most cells stop dividing. However, some recent findings indicate that with the help of an enzyme called telomerase, human cells can divide indefinitely.

Based on these findings, cells bathed in a solution of this substance have the ability to continue reproducing indefinitely. Ie cancels the process of aging and cell death. But tests conducted in multicellular animals, like man, has resulted in the use of this enzyme produces malignant tumors because the cells begin to divide indefinitely, that is, one does not die of aging, but of cancer. It annoyed the bargain.

Sin and disease
But what can we say of sin. Surely many would be struck by the fact that the best selling book, distributed, translated, read and respected in the world, The Holy Bible tells us that sin is the cause of death. "The sting that causes death is sin," says 1 Corinthians 15:56. Reminds us that our sinful inheritance is also responsible for the illnesses we suffer. In this regard, Jesus himself showed there is a direct relationship between illness and sin, as in healing a paralytic, he said, "Your sins are forgiven" (Matthew 9:2-7).

Today the word sin is obsolete, it is considered outdated, or an anachronism. For some even the idea of sin is ludicrous. However, you may never have investigated the real meaning of this word and the logic behind that meaning.

Definition of sin
According to the Bible dictionary acumen to understand the Scriptures "the common Hebrew term for" sin "is jat · tá'th, and Greek is has · sea · you · a. In both languages the verb forms (Heb. · tá ja '; gr. · Has · mar tá-no) means "to miss" in the sense that blew up or not achieving a goal, path, target or precise target ... Greek writers used use has · sea · tá-no over the lancer who wandered its target. Both words are used to refer to err, brown, or not achieving, not just material goals or objectives (Job 5:24), but also to moral or intellectual. "

Following the simple example of the definition we can better understand the term sin. Imagine having a target and a set of darts. Its aim to shoot the target is to reach the center (say it is 10 marks). If you give in the center has achieved its goal, not wrong, has not sinned. But if you give in the area of 9 has been close to 10 but has erred. If you give in your area of 2 error is larger, further from their goal. You pull with the intention of hitting the 10, their intention is good, but not always right. Well this is unintentional sin according to the Bible. Imagine now that you know where the target, but becomes, the turns his back and throw the dart in the opposite direction to the target. Of course not correct. You've done it on purpose. That sin is voluntary.

What has this to do with the disease? So much. Scientists trying to find the cause of physical disease: bacteria, viruses, genes, cells, DNA, telomeres, toxins, land, etc.. but forget that man is not just a conglomeration of a trillion cells, but a being with a moral and spiritual capacity that is precisely what distinguishes it from the plants and animals. To what extent this influences their health moral and spiritual capacity? Again we answer: a lot.

Our moral and spiritual capacity and disease
Physical health often depends on the mental and emotional balance. For example, studies have confirmed the adverse effects of anger. In his book Anger Kills (Anger kills), Dr. Redford Williams, director of Behavioral Research at the Medical Center of Duke University, and his wife, Virginia Williams, says that "most of the available evidence indicates that Hostile people are more prone to cardiovascular disease (and other) for several reasons, such as reduced social support, an increase in biological reactions caused by the fury and greater participation in unhealthy behaviors.

The modern health has long known that unbridled anger has a detrimental effect on the human body. More than one hundred years, The Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) (Journal of the American Medical Association) said: "A man is killed during a fit of rage, and says that perhaps his heart was weak, and that this could not withstand the stress imposed by their mental state. Nobody seems to think that this is only the culmination of a long series of such outbursts of anger, which were precisely those that weakened his heart. "

According to The New York Times, Dr. Murray Mittleman mentioned the possibility that at lower risk of heart attack people trying to remain calm in times of emotional stress. "The five percent reduction in the ability to discover heart [to pump blood] of patients in moments of anger is significant, albeit slight," said Dr. Gail Ironson, who led the research. Patients reported that when told of the incidents were not half as angry as they were when they actually occurred. It is likely that your heart's ability to pump blood is seen much reduced during a real outbreak of cholera. "

They do not want to tire more scientific statements that relate anger or rage with the disease.

Do you know what the Bible was written 3000 years ago? "A calm heart is the life of the flesh body, but jealousy is rottenness to the bones." (Proverbs 14:30)

Numerous medical studies show that anger and hostility can cause strokes and heart attacks. True medical journal, talking about people with heart disease, said recently that outbursts of uncontrolled anger is like poison, and that "the more angry one, more are sick." Those, however, strive to be peaceful, they develop "a calm heart" and ultimately benefit.

That is what causes the anger. But if we add to the rage of jealousy, hatred, resentment, revenge, pride, fear, stress, anxiety, tension, jealousy, etc.., Etc .... Then we are dying, some from arising from the tension that had suffered for nine months for the grim environment that have developed in the womb because of the tensions that maybe the mother is suffering at home.

We can not separate the moral and spiritual life of physics. That's a mistake (as proof read the articulated: Psychology: psychosomatic disorders with psychological component). All the greatest thinkers and naturalists recognize that to be healthy you need to be a kind, forgiving, kind, balanced, positive, generous, humble, sincere, modest, peaceful, grateful, and so on., Etc. That is 10, the other is away from 10. If you read books or A. Bernard Jensen Vogel will both agree: without peace there is mental and spiritual health.

So much for the moral, but in the spiritual, most agree the same way. If human beings have the ability to question, is because there are answers. It's a matter of searching. We need answers, we need to know who we are, where we go, what the meaning of life. If you do not have answers to these questions are lost, empty. For example, how can a redwood live 3,000 years, a turtle 150 and the human being with all his intelligence only 70 or 80? We need answers.

So that such a perfect and subtle balance between the physical and moral / spiritual can actually break and broke in the beginning of mankind. And just as some diseases are passed from parents to children in accordance with the laws of genetics, imperfection and resulting illnesses increased from the first humans to humans. According to the Bible, the fundamental cause of human death is not biological, but moral and legal. And what is your opinion?
