Ice Bucket Challenge: Give to the Mayo Clinic

For those disciples of Jesus who want to do the ice bucket challenge to support giving to cure ALS (Lou Gehrig’s Disease), I suggest giving to the Mayo Clinic.  The Mayo Clinic is currently doing research using adult stem cells taken from living adults.  They do not use murdered babies to do their research.  I urge you to give to the Mayo Clinic if you want to do this challenge.

And let us pray that God gives people the wisdom to cure this horrible disease.  More than that, pray for those suffering with ALS to repent and know Christ.  While we should pray for a cure for ALS, let us remember that all people will die whether with ALS or not.  Let us then pray for all people to be saved (1 Timothy 2:1-4) and to pray for the lost to repent of their sins (Luke 13:5).  The only hope for humanity is not the cure to ALS or to cancer or to AIDS but the true hope we need is found only in Christ Jesus (John 14:6).

To give to the Mayo Clinic, go here.
