WELCOME TO HELP-AIDS SEGMENT OF CHRISTIAN FORT.COM
Jesus said,“Come to me, all who are tired from carrying heavy loads, and I will give you rest. Matt 11:28 This famous saying from Bible tells all about the Christians' policy towards the woefuls. The Christianity doesn't hate anybody, it always accepts everyone. Jesus Christ, our Saviour always touched the lepers, the sicks and other evil spirits etc. He ordered every 'evil' to get out of the respective subjects. Today, we live in the vulnerable conditions. The Christians' youth are also prone to such conditions. We 'll have to care our youths. Every day AIDS like disease kills 8,000 people and infects 13,700 more. We must get our youth aware about the HIV/AIDS. Jesus Christ’s response in the Book of John 9: 2-3: when confronted with a question about the man born blind, and whether it was through his sins or his parents’ sins that he was blind, His response was,“Neither he nor his parents sinned. He was born blind so that the works of God might be displayed in Him”
Ignoring AIDS treatment is tantamount to condemning to death the more than 32 million African Christians who have the disease — most of whom are in the prime of their lives. Moreover, an estimated 95 percent of Africans do not know their HIV status, partly because the stigma associated with AIDS discourages them from participating in counseling and testing programs. A better-informed population could move more effectively to control the spread of the disease, but absent the possibility of treatment, people have little incentive to learn whether they have the virus or not.
More than 10 churches in Rochester, Syracuse and Buffalo, N.Y. (USA), always participate in a statewide programme designed to raise HIV/AIDS awareness in the African-American community by offering free HIV testing during church hours. Such programmes must be initiated in the Churches only to get our youths aware.
The routine activities of the Christian support group typically should begin with the singing of choruses and hymns, followed by a Word of God and the prayer. After that new members were welcomed through the exchange of hugs and motivated to live positively by any confident member who had already spent a reasonable amount of time with the group.At times, an opportunity was created for other members to testify about the greatness of God over their HIV infection.
