The Bible and Science – Hypoventilation

Hypoventilation can be a serious organic problem in some people, it however is NOT respiratory arrest, when you stop breathing.  Hypoventilation is when you are not breathing enough, and it causes an increase in carbon dioxide levels in your blood.  Very simply put your gas exchange is out of balance.

There can be several causes:

  1. A medical condition, injury, or illness that impairs the nervous system.
  2. Drugs, both recreational and prescribed.
  3. Voluntary holding your breath.

So, with respect to the people who have an organic problem, I will still attempt to show spiritual hypoventilation.  In spiritual hypoventilation you may have had your nervous system compromised.  You could have been betrayed and hurt so you withhold what Jesus has called you to give to the world.  I will compare “drugs” to wrong teaching or your misunderstanding the finished work of Jesus on the cross.  If you have trained yourself to not “give out”, please stop and at least go voluntary somewhere so your light may shine for Jesus.

To compare Hypoventilation and Hyperventilation both center around carbon dioxide.  It is something that we need to give back to the world.  In a spiritual context both of these are correctable, but you will need to examine your actions.

Thought for the Day

Take in more of the Holy Spirit, and then give it out again.
