The #1 Cause of Death in The World: It May Surprise You

For You From The Word

So whoever knows the right thing to do and fails to do it, for him it is sin. (James 4:17, ESV)

For You To Think About

cause-of-death statisticsHeart disease has long been touted as the leading cause of death, both in the U.S. and worldwide.

Unquestionably heart disease is a ruthless killer, with a recorded 596,577 American deaths (2011) and 7.4 million worldwide (2012) annually.

Stroke, cancer, respiratory illness, infant death, HIV/AIDS, Alzheimer’s, diabetes, accidents, and influenza also claim proportionately high number of victims in the U.S. and the world .

But none come close to the leading cause of death in both the U.S. and the world.

Abortion is responsible for twice as many American deaths each year as heart disease (1.06 million in 2011) and nearly six times as many deaths worldwide (43.6 million in 2008).

James 4:17 tells us, “Whoever knows the right thing to do and fails to do it, for him it is sin.”

You now have in your possession the truth about the world’s leading killer. What will you do with this information?

Speak the truth about life.

For You To Pray

Gracious Father,
Allow people to know the leading cause of death in the U.S. and the world. Let me and others speak the truth. Give me boldness to speak the truth about life.
In Jesus’ name, Amen.
