CLEANSING: Flesh eating turtles vs. the Lamb of God!

"If you address as Father the One who impartially judges according to each one's work, conduct yourselves in fear during the time of your stay on earth; knowing that you were not redeemed with perishable things like silver or gold from your futile way of life inherited from your forefathers, but with precious blood, as of a lamb unblemished and spotless, the blood of Christ."
1 Peter 1:17-19
A few rears ago, Time magazine reported that India had plans to release "carnivorous soft-shell turtles" into the Ganges, to clean up pollution created by the dumping of human carcasses into their sacred river. [10/27/87 p.46]

Sin leaves the refuge of death everywhere on the road of life; it pollutes everything it touches.

We don't have any carnivorous turtles to release into the sacred rivers of life because we don't need any ... not that they would do any good anyway. God has an environmental protection policy that works just fine: He is able to cleanse all that is in the world with the precious blood of the Lamb.
