Do you know that the numerous COVID-19 cases and deaths are the results of sin?
The Book of Romans 6:23 states: “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” (KJV)
Merriam-Webster Dictionary defines sin as transgression of the law of God. It is a morally corrupted state of human nature in which the self is estranged from God. The act is willful or deliberate violation of a religious or moral principle.
The first sin man committed is stated in the Book of Genesis 2:16-17. It states: “And the LORD God commanded the man, saying ‘Of every tree of the garden thou mayest eat: but of the tree of knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt NOT eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely DIE.’” (KJV) The directive or command God gave was both of a commission (thou mayest eat) and an avoidance (thou shalt NOT eat).
Effective August 4, 2020, the President placed National Capital Region and adjacent provinces under modified enhanced community quarantine (MECQ) upon the recommendation of the various medical societies. The medical community reasoned out that the country’s healthcare system is already overwhelmed and the front liners are already “burned out.” It was noted that as of that date, the country’s COVID-19 cases had exceeded 103,000 with a record high increase in cases at over 5,000. Metro manila had accounted for almost 3,000 of the newly reported cases and over 12,000 new cases over the past two weeks.
These figures were reported by the Department of Health’s COVID-19 tracker. (https://www.cnnphilippines.com/news/2020/8/2/NCR-other-provinces-MECQ-August-4.html)
The rise in the number of cases were blamed on the failure of people to obey simple quarantine measures such as proper wearing of face masks, regular hand washing, observance of physical distancing and some blamed on the “incompetence” of the medical authorities to corral its spread. Very poor compliance to simple quarantine policies is strongly cited as the primary culprit by both the local government units and the medical authorities.
As a medical professional in practice for the past three decades, I do not agree with these alibis. The concerned agencies tasked to control COVID-19 insist and continue to adopt ineffective measures that do not directly target its control thus it has caused the deaths of numerous individuals including several medical professionals not excluding an infectious disease specialist. In one of my radio program guesting, the host was very honest in saying that he was very surprised that many medical professionals fell victim to this pandemic.
When talking of diseases, most especially on infection, there are two adopted concepts. First, the Germ Theory of Louis Pasteur, a chemist, and the second, the Cellular Theory of Dr. Pierre Jacques Antoine Bechamp, a Doctor of Medicine. Of the two, Pasteur’s Germ Theory remains more popular and strongly adopted by the allopathic, mainstream medicine despite its many flaws. In fact, Pasteur, on his dying bed, admitted that Dr. Bechamp’s theory was the more accurate and legitimate theory.
Dr. Bechamp’s Cellular Theory or the Polymorphic Theory of Disease Causation states that the pathogenic microorganisms such as virus, bacterium and fungus do not invade the body from the outside as claimed by Pasteur. Dr. Bechamp declared that all living forms on this planet are made from an enzyme he named as “microzyma.” These immortal enzymes had either a life- or death-giving quality depending on the cellular terrain or environment. He found out that microzymas gradually transformed into varying forms when they were in different nature of solutions. Microzymas transformed to a specific form of germ when thriving in a specific terrain or environment. With this finding, he declared that microzymas were pleomorphic meaning they do not support one constant monomorphic form. Instead, they developed into a variety of forms that best suited the environment where they were.
Dr. Bechamp applied his concept in the bodies of animals in an experiment. He noted that microzymas gradually transformed into viruses, bacteria, fungi, yeasts and molds and back to any of the aforementioned forms depending on the environmental conditions. He was able to reproduce repeatedly, over the years of study, the specific transformed form of the microzymas by creating the condition of the cell that would cause the transformation. He, then, generally labeled the bacteria as “scavengers” that fed on the dead, decomposing, old cells and tissues and metabolic wastes to help clean up the toxic wastes accumulating in the systems of the organism. So, bacteria appeared only when there was the need to fix up the mess created by degenerative dead cells and metabolic toxic wastes. Other forms like the viruses destroy weak and compromised cells to prevent them from mutating to more dangerous cells like cancer cells.
When there were more waste matters to feed on, the number of microbes increased rapidly. Initially, this increase in the population of the microbes favored the host since the load required for the clean-up by the body decreased. However, the increase in the number of microbes produced their own load of toxins that contributed to the existing toxic condition of the terrain and thus, caused the symptoms that the diseased person manifested. If the self-generated wastes are not decomposed by the microbes, they would likely coagulate, hinder metabolism, obstruct circulation and interfere with organ function and possibly lead to a fatal outcome. Through these observations, Dr. Bechamp concluded that microbes per se do not cause the disease but the disease is created when the condition of the internal environment of the cell makes it very conducive for the microzymas to get transformed to the specific microbe that best suit to clean up the mess within.
The present pandemic can be contained if Dr. Bechamp’s theory is adopted by the mainstream medicine. Dr. Bechamp stated that to prevent disease, we have to create health. How? He emphasized the importance of wholesome nutrition (commission) and environmental, hygienic cleanliness (avoidance) as the keys to prevention and success against all diseases. The primary cause for the disease is altered internal cellular terrain triggering the microzymal transformation into “pathogenic” microbes. The role of the microbes is to assist the compromised bodily system eliminate toxic wastes to facilitate reversion of the terrain back to its optimal state where the microbe will then be transformed into the healthier, more friendly and inert form, the microzyma.
There are six basic essential nutrients the body requires. These are carbohydrates, proteins, facts, vitamins, minerals and water. Of these, minerals and water are the most ignored and neglected. When there are deficiencies of these essential nutrients, their vital functions cannot occur. For minerals, these functions are: M – maintain electrical nerve impulses, I – improve muscle actions, N – neutralize stress, E – extracts toxins out of the cells, R – regulate water contents of the body, A – activate enzymatic functions, L – load out to strengthen the immune system, and S – sustain cell life. For water, their vital functions are: W – works to keep body cells toned, A – assists in weight loss, T – transports nutrients and oxygen throughout the body, E – Eliminates acidic metabolic wastes and toxins out of the body, and R – Regulates body temperature. If one or more of the functions stated above are interrupted, disease occurs.
Today, people are not well educated of the drastic effects of water and mineral deficiencies. Even most medical professionals are not aware of them. As a result, they cater to foods and beverages and other substances that worsen the deficiencies and further increase the toxins that weaken and harm the cells. With this lifestyle trend, the pandemic is here to stay and cause more destruction to lives. I have observed personally several diseases, infectious or non-infectious, resolved with mere lifestyle changes and without medications.
Moreover, the state of community quarantine has caused sudden unemployment to countless individuals worldwide. With prolonged unemployment, hunger will exist and when it exists for an unpredictable period, the hungry will run out of patience and will surely create more chaos and further worsen the pandemic. Before this happens, I pray that the mainstream medicine and the government agencies responsible for the control of this pandemic in the country heed to other approaches to fight this health crisis and stop pursuing the ineffective measures that continue to cause the resurgence of more COVID-19 cases.
For the wages of sin is death!
