What does the Bible say about Ebola

What does the Bible say about Ebola
The recent Ebola outbreak has prompted many to ask why God allows—or even causes—pandemics and whether such a disease is a sign of the end times. The Bible, particularly the Old Testament, describes numerous occasions when God brought plagues and diseases on both His people and His enemies “to make you see my power” (Exodus 9:14, 16). He used plagues on Egypt to force Pharaoh to free the Israelites from bondage, while sparing His people from being affected by them (Exodus 12:13; 15:26), thus indicating His sovereign control over diseases and other afflictions.

God also warned His people of the consequences of disobedience, including plagues (Leviticus 26:21, 25). Numbers 16:49 and 25:9 describe God destroying 14,700 people and 24,000 people, respectively, for various acts of disobedience. After giving the Mosaic Law, God commanded the people to obey it or suffer many evils, including something that sounds like Ebola: “The Lord will strike you with wasting disease, with fever and inflammation…which will plague you until you perish” (Deuteronomy 28:22). These are just a few examples of many plagues and diseases God caused.

RE: What does the Bible say about Ebola
If you believe in God. Which I can't really say I do.

But I am a skeptic. One among many, really.

Ebola exists, just as many other diseases do. And yet the people create cures for this, and are on their way to discovering nano-technology to enable us to augment parts of our body to allow us to live disease free.

Can't say I'm glad to be back Wink

Also.. I remembered something. Someone on a radio show said this (or near enough)

If Ebola is that bad, then surely all the people in Western Africa would be dead. But they're not.

(Not saying it isn't bad, but I see their point)
