What does Jesus think?


Recommended Posts

If one believes that God created all things, then it follows that he also created viruses. If he did, he must have had some purpose for them in mind, unless, of course, he was just playing around. After all, God has a sense of humor, too. I seriously doubt, though, that he did it to serve as any sort of punishment... more likely crowd control, considering how many millions have died from various diseases and influenzas over the centuries.

I'm reminded of Ezra Pound's witty little truism... "God, in his wisdom made the fly, and then forgot to tell us why."

First of all....samallen, what are you blown away by...I missed that one.

If you choose to believe in God or not, that is YOUR choice. Personally, I choose God. I do not think we have the right to disrespect someone's choice of belief. I feel it is wrong to call someone moronic if they choose not to believe (you can feel they are moronic, but I don't think its right to tell them they are), and at the same time it is wrong to say God is dead or imaginary or that Jesus slept around to Needsacuppa. That is not your place and it is disrespectful. Clearly, Needsacuppa is Christian and has made her choice and this is not the place, nor is any place, to insult her beliefs. She has asked for guidance based on her faith and if you do not share that faith you probably don't need to make a comment. Based on faith....we all make mistakes, we are all broken, and we all fall short. There was/is only one that is perfect. ONLY ONE and it isn't you Needsacuppa. It isn't me either. So....God understands you are going to fail sometimes and He loves and treasures you anyway. We do have choices and with every choice comes consequences, some are good and some are bad. This doesn't mean you are being punished. Sometimes bad things happen to good people and good things happen to bad people. Sometimes its the other way around. Regardless, God LOVES you and YOU are worth it to Him. I have been told many times over that God can handle it if we are mad at him. In the Bible it says that God is sloooooooow to anger, so I'm pretty sure He isn't angry at you. When I was diagnosed I felt the same way. I felt that God was punishing me for my actions. Now I think He was using it to get me out of a very bad place in my life. A pastor once said that God may hurt to heal but He will never hurt to harm. I had been having sex for years before I contracted HSV. Some people contract H the first time they have sex and some don't. Some people have sex with anything that moves and NEVER have anything happen. The bottom line, HSV+ or not....God loves, loves, loves, loves YOU!!!

      Hi @bme2020 there's a few things to consider here. Two equivocals with no outbreaks is almost invariably negative. The chances of you having genital HSV-2 are quite remote. Let's assume a person does have genital herpes and uses tweezers. It is very unlikely for enough on the virus to transfer to the tweezers. Further, exposure to oxygen kills the virus. Hence you can expect in most practical circumstances the virus to be viable for only seconds to minutes. Let's no go into what would have to happen at the other end as well to actually infect someone - they'd pretty well have to jab into a nerve!

      I first found out I was exposed to hsv2 in early January. I never had an outbreak that I knew of. I had my 1st moderna shot March 14 and my 1st hsv2 outbreak a couple days later.  it was very minor.  I took valtrex and it cleared in 3 or 4 days. I had my 2nd moderna shot April 14. I had a minor out break the next day. I took valtrex and was gone in 2 days. I  suppose it could be coincidence but...after my 2nd outbreak I strongly suspected a tie. I wouldn't let this affect my decision to get the vaccine.

      Hey @Mard3 the most important ingredient to reducing transmission chances is knowledge of your infection. Where the infected person is using this knowledge to avoid sexual activity during actual and potential outbreaks, then transmission chances are quite low indeed. In these circumstances, female to male transmission is about a 4% chance over a whole year of sex. Hence even over three years the chance is still quite low. It is lower still if condoms are used for example and if you are taking antivirals. Of discordant couples, about half will go their whole married lives together without transmitting at all!!

      Hello all!    This may seem like a crazy question. But my mind is spiraling in the whats if’s. I have tested equivocal for HSV2 twice with no obvious OBs.  So I’m not even sure my status, but any itch, twitch, weird bump, etc I get sends me over the edge every time. Anyways, last week I felt a pimple/bump on the left side of my vulva. If you weren’t feeling for it, you wouldn’t know it was there really. It was a small bump (like half of a pea size). Pretty much skin color. So I investigate and of course try to pop it and pick it like I should not do! Lol.  Nothing really came out. I thought I saw a little hair or something so I got tweezers and picked at it. Couldn’t get anything and just irritated it more. Fast forward two days and it’s gone and healed.    The tweezers I used were my family members. I truly can’t remember if I cleaned them off or not before putting them back, I was so panicked. Today she said she has a cold sore on her mouth. She has always had oral cold sores so this isn’t a new thing for her. But in my mind I’m panicking connected the two. What are even the chances that say what i was picking at the tweezers with WAS HSV, and she then used them around her mouth, could get she the HSV2 that I maybe have? It would have been over 24 hrs from the time I used the tweezers to when she possibly could have (and again, i don’t even know if she’s used them, I’m just freaking out about what if she did!) is this even possible? To transmit HSV from infected tweezers if someone uses them near their mouth?    I know it’s all a bunch of what if’s but hopefully someone can provide some insight on this. Thank you!

      I have dated the same guy for 3 years and some how he has not gotten it. I'm wondering how that is possible?
