DANDEROUS RATIO


On page 964 of Oxford Advanced Learner’s Dictionary Special price edition (1998), ratio is defined as “a relation between two amounts, which shows how many times one contains the other”. What can we then say of a ratio whereby an amount or unit contains zero or one of the other? In this case, 1000 = 0 where the higher figure stands for evil and the other figure represents good. To call this a Dangerous Ratio is not exaggerating, where does this arise from the Holy Bible, you may ask?
Let’s take a journey to the book of the preacher, chapter seven verses twenty- seven and twenty- nine (Ecclesiastes 7: 27- 29) that reads,
“Behold, this have I found, saith the preacher, counting one by one, to find out the account
Which yet my soul seeketh, but I find not: one man among a thousand have I found, but a
Woman among all those have I not found” King James Version
Bringing the danger in it out, let’s assume that in a little city, there is a population of thousand people, say four hundred and fifty men and five hundred fifty women. Assuming there is a fire outbreak in the night or at midnight invasion of the city and you hear that only one man is saved and no woman, will you rate that “good” or “safe”, “bad” or “unsafe”?
Let us now assume that you are living in such a city and an evil befalls it, will you want to be the saved man or be among those who perish? As a right thinking one, you will prefer life to death. But what have you done or are you doing to have life? As at the time of reading this, you’re still breathing. You are not dead yet. But before that happens, you need to prepare for life after this one as you prepare for this life.
Do you know or ever heard of this? There’s only source of life – here and hereafter. That source is, without debate, Jesus Christ. Do you know Him? You are reliably informed here that “In Him (Jesus Christ) was life, and the life was the light of men.
But these are written that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the son of God, and that believing ye might have life through His name.” John 1: 4, 20: 31 (King James Version)
My beloved Readers, what you are reading is not about religion but about Christ and life. I’m not condemning you and you religion but introducing you to “life”. Religions, about nine of them, may be good and keep them busy for a supreme being but Christ is the bread of life. You need Him. Accept Him henceforth. Ask Him to come into your heart now. Ask Him to fill your heart with His spirit. He will surely do. Hear this assurance from Psalm 121: 5 – 8,
“The Lord is thy keeper: the Lord is thy shade upon thy right hand.
The sum shall not smite thee by day, nor the moon by night.
The Lord shall preserve thee from all evil: He shall preserve thy soul.
The Lord shall preserve thy going out and thy coming in from this time forth, and even
For ever more.” King James Version.
