Martin Collins, informing us that during the horrendous Bubonic Plague pandemic in 1348 which destroyed 1/3 of Europe's population, the only segment of the population which remained unscathed were the Jews, who observed God's Quarantine Laws in Leviticus 6 and Leviticus 13. These laws, while specifically applying to Leprosy, applied generally to all contagious diseases, including the common cold. The sick person was to stay segregated until he was fully recovered, a determination made by a Levitical Priest, serving as a public health official as much as a religious official. If the gentile population had followed the sanitation and quarantine laws outlined in scripture, the epidemics and pandemics would be non-existent. Sadly, the 'progressives' have politicized certain deadly diseases, protecting the rights of AIDS 'victims' or communicable diseases carried by illegal immigrants, endangering the public health. God's called-out ones must realize that to isolate oneself because a sore, discharge or something potentially communicable does not carry shame or stigma but is an act of outgoing love. The common cold should be regarded the same way one regards influenza or whooping cough. If we find ourselves afflicted with nasal discharges, we shouldn't diagnose our malady as something not serious or "just an allergy," taking a chance on infecting others. Under no circumstances should anyone come to services sick, no matter how minor the ailment may seem. Remembering that quarantine is an outgoing act of love, we should follow God's Health Laws without questionFrom "Martin G. Collins"
