Sex has a price-tag

A World War II venereal disease poster

As I read the CNN article, “STD rates reach record high in United States”, I remembered watching (twenty years ago) the DVD, “Sex has a price-tag” by Pam Stenzel.

Pam, while speaking to high school learners, made the point that condoms may prevent pregnancy, but they certainly don’t protect one from a whole host of venereal or sexually transmitted diseases. Pam’s point is even more urgent today.

God has spoken!

We are familiar with the concept of a spokesman or spokesperson.  It’s a person who speaks for another person or group.

Zizi Kodwa is the South African presidential spokesmen.  What Zizi says, the SA president says.

Sean Spicer, probably has one of the worst jobs in the world, he is the current spokesperson for President Donald Trump.  Officially he is the White House Press Secretary.  What Sean Spicer says Donald Trump says.  Mr. Spicer must also explain what Donald Trump says and tweets.

Individuals and organizations have official spokesmen who speak for them or the organization.

One of the functions of the Holy Spirit, the third person of the Triune God, is to be the spokesman of God.
