Strange Fire: Why Vaping Is Killing Kids?
The very first known death in the vaping-related lung disease happened in Illinois, and public health officials are still looking for a coordinated strategy to assemble info concerning this mysterious ailment.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has reported over 200 cases of acute respiratory ailments possibly associated with vaping. The bureau confirms a minimum of one individual has died from vaping-related ailments.
Government health researchers say they found a compound — a petroleum-derived from vitamin E — discovered in samples of bud vaping goods from individuals all around the country who got sick after vaping. In a situation that reveals the possible risks from vaping unknown or unsure substances, an Illinois adolescent talked with CBS News regarding his near-death encounter.
Adam Hergenreder, of Gurnee, Illinois was hospitalized for a week. “I am 18 years old. My lungs are just like a 70-year-old’s,” he explained.
Hergenreder stated he vaped with THC, the principal ingredient of marijuana.
Correspondent Dean Reynolds asked,”You are buying it off the road from a guy you don’t know, in retrospect would you believe that was sort of idiotic?”
“When you are hooked like this, I do not feel that goes through your head”
His mom, Polly, drove him into the hospital at which he went directly to intensive care.
“It is likely every parent’s nightmare,” she explained. “And we could not create Adam better”
“Did you think your son may die?” Reynolds asked.
“Yes, since we had been told he’d have.”
There is an epidemic of sickness among young people who vape resulting in death. According to the CDC, Vaping has risen 78 % among young people since it was first marketed in 2017.
Health officials, lawmakers, and parents have been raising alarms about vaping to get a couple of years, warning that goods touted as healthy choices for smokers are rather drawing young people who have fun tastes and slick promotion.
But the warning has taken on fresh urgency in recent weeks as police scramble to understand that a rash of mysterious vaping-linked disorders and deaths that have put healthy people in the hospital with severe lung disease. On Friday, police announced a fifth departure connected to e-cigarettes, battery-powered apparatus that could look like flash pens and drives which mimic smoking by heating liquids with chemicals like marijuana and smoking.
As a result, lawmakers blasted Juul for its alleged role in fueling a teen vaping “epidemic,” calling the company’s tactics “right out of the tobacco playbook” and eager to understand what makes Juul’s e-cigarettes “so attractive to teenagers.”
A federal survey found nearly 21% — or 3 million — U.S. high school students vaped last year. Some, including former Food and Drug Administration Commissioner Scott Gottlieb, blame the surge in teen e-cigarette use on Juul, which makes the market-leading product.
In Leviticus 10, the bible warns us about Strange Fire. As Christians, we should be on guard against the strange fires of this world.
The strange fires of music, drugs, movies, systems, and pleasures of this world. In Leviticus 10, we have two people who died because they did not decern the holiness of God’s tabernacle.Image
I think this is important because these strange fires that young people are putting into their mouths emphasize the impact that our world is having on uninformed kids. But not only uninformed children, but uninformed Christians as well.
|Aaron’s sons Nadab and Abihu took their censers, put fire in them and added incense; and they offered unauthorized fire before the LORD, contrary to his command (Lev. 10:1)|
1 Corinthians 6:19
19 Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; 20 you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your bodies.Paragraph
Understanding the context:
To be able to comprehend the term”strange fire,” we have to examine the narrative in Leviticus where it appears. The very first tabernacle was erected, and Aaron had been performing a great deal of forfeiting per God’s instructions (Leviticus 8–9). The Hebrew word translated”odd” means”unauthorized, overseas, or profane.” God not only refused their forfeit; He also found it offensive that He swallowed the two guys with fire.
Following Nadab and Abihu were killed and Moses explained to Aaron why God had done such a brutal thing: “This is what the LORD spoke of when he said:’ Among those who approach me I will show myself holy; in the sight of all of the people I’m honored”’ (Leviticus 10:3). The precise nature of the profane fire is not known, however, because it was the flame which was untrue, it might be the Nadab and Abihu were burning the incense using fire in their own making as opposed to shooting fire from the bible, as stated in Leviticus 16:12. Or it might have been the two guys came to the tabernacle drunk. (Leviticus 10:8–9).
They offered strange fire unto the Lord and did not discern that God is a Holy God.
We live in a society of strange fires. We have award shows with gospel singers sharing the stage with Hollywood celebrities.
We have Christian teen groups being taught about safe sex and handed condoms. We have tobacco companies encouraging children to use e-cigarettes.

2. God wants a Holy People.
