A Russian scientist has made a bizarre claim linking ancient bacteria to immortality. Anatoli Brouchkov, the head of the Geocryology Department at Moscow State University, injected himself with what he claims is a 3.5-million-year-old bacteria. Brouchkov believes it may be the key to finding eternal life. But the name linked most closely to the search for a fountain of youth is 16th-century Spanish explorer Juan Ponce de Leon, who allegedly thought it would be found in Florida. Nobody has succeeded. But while we all must someday pass from this life, we can all live forever. Paul affirmed that while “the wages (or the payoff) for sin is death,“ the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” That’s because Christ died to make forgiveness and eternal life possible for all who admit their spiritual need and open their lives to Him.
