“For if, after they have escaped the pollutions of the world through [the full, personal] knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, they again become entangled in them and are overcome, their last condition is worse [for them] than the first.”
(2 Peter 2:20 AMP)

I visited China recently and I found it difficult to breath because of the poor air quality. Environmental pollution is of global concern. Industrial airborne pollution is so offensive because it adversely affects the health of everyone in the region. The best way to protect yourself is to leave the foul atmosphere. Voluntarily returning would again increase the personal health risk for illness. Spiritual pollution is called sin. Christ Jesus sacrificed his life on the cross to rescue us from its lethal consequences. After escaping to freedom from our previous sinful lifestyle it would be foolish to return risking eternal death and separation from the Lord. Escape pollution and breath in the pure life that only comes from Jesus.
