Sin May be Invisible to Human Eyes
Biblical Treasury
Leviticus 13:2-46
When a man shall have in the skin of his flesh a rising, a scab, or bright spot…

A lady, whose portrait had often been successfully taken before, paid a visit one day to the photographer's for the purpose of having a new one taken. After she had sat for it in the usual way, the photographer retired with the plate to examine the picture which the sun's light had drawn there, but as the lines gradually developed in the chemical bath a strange sight was revealed. In the portrait the lady's face appeared covered with a number of dark spots; but yet no one looking at her that day was able to detect the slightest trace of them in her face I But the next day the explanation came. The spots had then become distinctly visible. The lady was ill of small-pox, of which she died. The faint yellow of the spots, some time before human eyes could discern it, had been marked by the pure light of the sun, and traced in darkened spots in that inexorably true picture drawn on the photographic plate, revealing the horrible disease that already, though as yet invisible to human eyes, was seated there.
