Recently Billy Graham was asked about the AIDS crisis taking the lives of many people in Africa and across the world. He said, “The only lasting cure for AIDS and other sexually transmitted diseases is God’s teaching on sexual purity. This is why I believe Christians and Christian organizations have a special responsibility to get involved. Only Christ can give hope in the face of such widespread disaster—hope for this life, and hope for the world to come. How can we remain silent? When Jesus walked on earth, He reached out to people suffering from all kinds of problems, no matter the cause. May we be like Him, who “When he saw the crowds, he had compassion on them” (Matthew 9:36).
