Today someone found my blog through a sad search term: "is alzheimer's a punishment for specific sins".
I wonder who typed that in. Do they have alzheimer's? Are they regretting portions of their life and trying to assign some meaning to it? Assigning such a terrible fate to themselves as a way to stave off the horror that sometimes bad things happen without a good explanation? How filled with sorrow must they be to ask Google such a question? What lies behind the pleading words of that request? I don't know, but it makes me sad.
If you come back, miscellaneous person that I don't know, here's not just my answer, but THE answer.
Alzheimer's is not a punishment from God for a specific sin that has been committed.
