I was sitting in my doctor’s office and picked up a trade magazine that was laying around her office. While waiting for her to show up with test results.  Yes, in her actual office and not an exam room.  There was this article about germs and being human.  It got me thinking about religion.
In the article, the quote that hit me as religious applicable was from Louis Pasteur and a Noble Laureate in medicine recently:  The human body needs to be exposed to germs, virus, and bacteria at some level for the body to be healthy,  As it was an example in as simple terms as I can understand, for the immune system to work, it needs to be exposed to bad things so it can build its immunity to them.   The recent Nobel Laureate explained as your body's immune system is build for war and to fight always.  If it is always supplemented or never fights, the immune systems are weakened.  So, both at different times recommend, fight out a cold now and then, suffer through the mild flu.  Give your immune system something to fight, something to live for.
This got me thinking that religion is much the same.  It is built around faith, belief, and salvation.  But how do we know that we are on the right track unless we encounter sin and despair and other negative life events, temptations?   So, does that mean we need to go out and seek sin, temptations, or the like, No, it doesn’t.  We are exposed to it all the time in small doses.  What I say is it means much like our immune system, our beliefs are a warrior that needs to resist what is thrown at us each day to stay strong and build itself up.  We need to feed our warriors through our prayers, or recognition that we fight temptations every day.   We need to celebrate those wins to help us build up our own immunity to issues of the world around us.  Just my humble opinion and thoughts. 
People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.

George Orwell
