Ebola virus. Healing Ebola. Praising God.


Some months ago, Dr. Kent Brantly got infected with Ebola disease. He was then hurried back to US where he was given an experimental medicine that worked. After his release from the hospital, he praised God for his life. He said that he prayed to God and that his prayers were answered.

Many people pray to God. However not all of them are saved. (1)

But is this so? What should we be praying to?

Dr. Brantly said it eloquently: “I prayed that God would help me to be faithful even in my illness, and I prayed that in my life or in my death, He would be glorified”.
In life AND death he said. And this is indeed the proper way to pray. Why pray to save your material life on this Earth? After all is it not Christianism who says over and over again that material life is nothing compared to your spiritual salvation?

The Lord said it after all: “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in disease”. (Ἀρκεῖ σοι ἡ χάρις μου· ἡ γὰρ δύναμις ἐν ἀσθενείᾳ τελειοῦται)

See beyond what is in front of your eyes and you will see the world…
Choose to die and you will earn eternal life…

Spiros Kakos is a thinker located in Greece. He has been Chief Editor of Harmonia Philosophica since its inception. In the past he has worked as a senior technical advisor for many years. In his free time he develops software solutions and contributes to the open source community. He has also worked as a phD researcher in the Advanced Materials sector related to the PCB industry. He likes reading and writting, not only philosophy but also in general. He believes that science and religion are two sides of the same coin and is profoundly interested in Religion and Science philosophy. His philosophical work is mainly concentrated on an effort to free thinking of "logic" and reconcile all philosophical opinions under the umbrella of the "One" that Parmenides - one of the first thinkers - visualized. The "Harmonia Philosophica" articles program is the tool that will accomplish that. Life's purpose is to be defeated by greater things. And the most important things in life are illogical. We must fight the dogmatic belief in "logic" if we are to stay humans... Credo quia absurdum!
