SORT BY Relevancy
An article published in Forbes last week in time for International Women’s Day looked at this ancient bacterialdisease from a very different angle–the disproportionate burden the disfiguring disease, leprosy, has on the world’s poorest women.
Joining me on the Sunday, Mar. 15 airing of the Outbreak News This Week Radio show, author of the article, Leprosy Isn’t Gone — And Women Bear The Burden, Dr. Judy Stone joined me to discuss the disease and her findings concerning how an already stigmatizing illness affects women on a whole different level.
Scripture Text : 2 Kings 5:1-15
Key Verses : 2 Kings 5:1-
Now Naaman, Captain of the host of the king of Syria, was a great man with his master, and honorable, because by him the Lord had given deliverance unto Syria: he was also a mighty man in valor, but he was a leper.
And the Syrians had gone out by companies, and had brought away captive out of the land of Israel a little maid; and she waited on Naaman's wife.
And she said unto her mistress, would God my lord were with the prophet that is in Samaria! for he would recover him of his leprosy.
And one went in, and told his lord, saying, Thus and thus said the maid that is of the land of Israel.

Please join me Friday Oct 9th at 9:30 a.m CST as we continue to talk about the covenants God established with us. I am going to discuss iniquity and how Jesus was bruised for our iniquities. Jesus blood is the only sinless blood. The scriptures say the life is in the blood.
Isaiah 53 written over 800 years before Jesus was born.
4Surely He has borne our griefs (sicknesses, weaknesses, and distresses) and carried our sorrows and pains [of punishment], yet we [ignorantly] considered Him stricken, smitten, and afflicted by God [as if with leprosy]. †2
5 But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our guilt and iniquities; the chastisement [needful to obtain] peace and well-being for us was upon Him, and with the stripes [that wounded] Him we are healed and made whole.
6All we like sheep have gone astray, we have turned every one to his own way and the Lord has made to light upon Him the guilt and iniquity of us all. †3
Jesus our Lord took His sinless blood which He shed for us. He took the punishment we should have had and took it on Himself.He entered the holy place once for all, having obtained eternal redemption. (Hebrews 9:12)

Constantine's baptism and donation paid to the bishop of Rome, for absolution from his evil deeds, by Silvester. That laid the foundation for temporal power of the papacy
Have you ever given something to someone and they never thanked you for it? Many of us show this same ungratefulness towards God. God blesses us with gifts in many ways, we accept those gifts, and then forget all about the Giver.
In Luke 17:11-19, Jesus encounters ten lepers. He heals all ten of them, but only one really realizes the extent to which he had been healed and turns around to thank Jesus. Leprosy was a terrible disease. It was considered unclean and contagious. People who had leprosy in those days were considered outcasts. They were kept in a secluded place away from the larger part of society, and were forbidden from seeing their families and friends. Since leprosy was incurable, those who had it often died alone.
The physical disease of leprosy is not unlike our spiritual condition. Leprosy only touches the body. But sin and its consequences go deeper to the heart and soul. Leprosy keeps those ridden with the disease separated from society, and likewise, sin keeps us separated from God.
