Two Great Discoveries May 18, 2018

Sir James Simpson from Edinburgh, discovered the anaesthetic qualities of chloroform and obstetric anaesthesia. He opened the door to medical operations which were previously impossible. A bust of him was raised in St Andrew’s chapel with the words: “To whose genius and benevolence, the world owes the blessings derived from the use of chloroform for the relief of suffering”. He was a sincere Christian. Once he was asked, “Sir, what do you consider your greatest discovery?” He replied, “My greatest discovery was when I discovered I was a sinner in the sight of God.” He was then asked, “And now would you please tell me your second greatest discovery.” Simpson replied, ‘My second greatest discovery was when I discovered that Jesus died for a sinner like me.’” The fear of God is the beginning of wisdom.”
