ALBUQUERQUE, October 20, 2014 /Christian Newswire
/ -- A novel written five years ago called The Christ Virus
may contain a prophetic warning of trouble ahead for Americans regarding the recent Ebola outbreak.
Author Dave Slade said he believes The Christ Virus was inspired by God. In the story, Islamists on a suicide mission infect themselves with a deadly virus. They infiltrate internment camps where Christians have been quarantined for refusing to be implanted with a microprocessor designed to detect infection.
The scenario is chillingly close to a warning by national security expert Capt. Al Shimkus. The retired professor from the Naval War College recently told Forbes that ISIS fanatics may infect themselves with the Ebola virus and use it as a suicide bioweapon.
This is only one of several scenes in The Christ Virus that have eerie parallels to the Ebola outbreak. Another occurrence is when a CDC doctor infected with a deadly virus receives a blood transfusion from a survivor. This happened recently when Dr. Kent Brantly donated his plasma to three infected patients. The experimental procedure is based on the theory that a survivor's antibodies could help fight off the deadly virus.
Dave Slade is a former newspaper reporter who covered local and country politics in New Mexico. He is a graduate of the School of Journalism at San Jose State University and the School of Ministry at Calvary Albuquerque.
