The Deadliest Woman In Town.

“That’s the eleventh patient, so far, that has been brought into the ER within the last 16 hours!” The Doctor said to the others in the room at the Morning Staff Meeting.

“Put up warning signs. Everyone entering their rooms must wear gloves, gowns and masks. Quarantine them all. This is highly contagious. Notify the Center for Disease Control that we have an outbreak.”

Several Nurses hurried out of the room to follow his orders.

“This strain of infectious disease is resistant to treatment of any kind. Most patients die Nurse gloveswith this infection, although I have heard that a few have been known to recover. My guess is that less than ten percent ever survive. It is a slow and agonizing death.”

Those in the room glanced from one to another. Most of them had already made contact of some sort with these patients. Fears begin to grip their thoughts as they worried about their own safety and survival.

“Doctor?” A Nurse called out from the back of the room. “What part of the body does this disease attack?”

The Doctor looked at the papers and handwritten notes in his lap, then he raised his head and said, “Autopsy reports clearly show major heart damage in every patient. The walls of the heart become irreversibly hardened. Also, some family members have reported the victims thinking became irrational.

“The first victim that came in last night was related to seven of the others. The other three were her close friends. She is the carrier. Right now, she’s the deadliest woman in town.

“She infected her husband, her three daughters, a grand daughter and two of her sisters. Now, they are all fighting for their life.”

The Doctor picked up his black Book and turned its pages until he found the citation he was looking for. He cleared his throat and read to his listeners the cause of this viral infection.

Looking diligently… lest any root of bitterness springing up trouble you, and thereby many be defiled;

  2. Great post as always elder. It is so true…bitterness is one, if not, the most contagious and evil problems facing mankind. It’ll rob you of revival (personal and church wide), it’ll rob you of friends and ultimately your salvation.

  9. Awesome. Sadly I have to say that I have seen this very thing in some that I have known. It’s sad that there is no recovery unless they seek it themselves.
