It seems like more and more high school athletes are dying.
As you know, the Bible teaches that the wages of sin is death.
God is in control and every day cannot occur without God’s permission. God is absolutely sovereign over His creation. In this regard, every death is meaningful in some way. It shows something.
There is a serious problem with drugs among the teens in the United States, and this drug problem is growing. There is also alcohol abuse problem among teens.
If a teen is using drugs or alcohol, then it is possible to see that his or her body is not functioning at its maximum, so that a injury could result in death (whereas it might not have if there were not drug use or alcohol use). Drug use and alcohol abuse can destroy the strength of the body.
There is a reason why companies conduct drug tests. A person using drugs cannot perform work at the optimal level.
In the same way, a high school athlete using drugs is susceptible. This can explain why more and more high school athletes are dying. Drugs are not cool. Drugs can and do kill!
It is important to illegalize drugs. Drugs destroy the health of the body. Drugs can cause disability and brain damage on babies (when moms or dads use them). Drugs often cause people to commit crimes, because they are not thinking straight, when they are using drugs.
Drugs must be illegalized. And Christians and Christian churches must fight to illegalize drugs by American federal and state law.
Drug suppliers must be given the death penalty. Drug use must be stamped out of American society, including from social settings of teen athletes.
