Evil from his Youth

This email appeared in my inbox a few days ago. Something tells me that it is not entirely sincere, that it is not really from the NHS, and that someone a little dishonest may be behind it.

Coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccination - N H S

Dear marsden
The COVID-19 travel certificate has been created in a bid to restore the freedom of travel,
which has been put at a halt for over a year now, since the pandemic erupted all over the block.
Through the certificate, the Commission intends to remove travel restrictions as entry bans, quarantine obligation, and testing.
Those holding such a document will be able to travel throughout Europe without the need to quarantine or test for COVID-19
The Passport will be issued to all those who have been fully vaccinated against the Coronavirus, with one of the four vaccines approved by the National Medicine Agency, which are:
AstraZeneca, Pfizer, Moderna and Janssen (Johnson & Johnson)
The certificate will prove that its holder has been vaccinated while also containing additional information on the vaccine, as when the doses were administered, who is the manufacturer, etc.

Whatever the situation, whatever the circumstance, whatever the scenario, fraudsters will be at work, eyeing up new ways to get hold of your details and bank balances. Ahead of the covenant made with Noah, God rather wistfully observes man's continued, corrupted nature:

Then the Lord said in His heart, “I will never again curse the ground for man’s sake, although the imagination of man’s heart is evil from his youth; nor will I again destroy every living thing as I have done (Gen 8: 21).

Despite God’s kindness and mercy after judgement, the descendants of Noah’s family would continue to imagine and fantasise about the riches they may steal from others, the lives they may harm, the advantages they may take. Thankfully, God’s mercy is greater than man’s sin. His eternal plan to effect our rescue is more ancient than our corruption.
