Nepenthes attenboroughii,

'The juice of the plant covers the soft parts of the prey, and generally, only the bones of the prey remain.'

Mr. McPherson said pitchers were usually colourful, attractive, seductive, ensnaring to attract prey, especially insects, which they needed to survive.

'All pitcher plants are carnivorous plants. They need to get hold of nutrients by ensnaring and digesting animals (mainly insects) because they grow in really difficult surfaces where nutrients are little in the soil,' he said.

'This new genus of plants which was discovered in the Philippines produces pitcher traps that are green with purple marks, and they stand out clearly from surrounding vegetation.' 

The team said the structure of its leaves, pitchers and flowers suggests strongly that the new species is a close relative of the great Nepenthes rajah from Borneo and may be related to the Nepenthes flora of Palawan and Borneo.

The newly discovered
giant pitcher
(Nepenthes attenboroughii)

A new species of giant carnivorous plant has been discovered in the highlands of the central Philippines.
The pitcher plant is among the largest of all pitchers and is so big that it can catch rats as well as insects in its leafy trap.
During the same expedition, botanists also came across strange pink ferns and blue mushrooms they could not identify.
The botanists have named the pitcher plant after British natural history broadcaster David Attenborough.
They published details of the discovery in the Botanical Journal of the Linnean Society earlier this year.

Word that this new species of pitcher plant existed initially came from two Christian missionaries who in 2000 attempted to scale Mount Victoria, a rarely visited peak in central Palawan in the Philippines.

From the above illustration it is evident that the external morphology of sin is identical with this insectivarious plants. People are attracted to sin and its external characteristics like the creatures and fall prey .Just imagine how devastating it is to have even a look with our eyes towards sin.


The characteristics of the internal morphology of sin is death.

wages of sin
Wages of sin
“For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord”-(Rom 6:23).

“When tempted, no one should say, “God is tempting me.” For God cannot be tempted by evil, nor does he tempt anyone; but each one is tempted when, by his own evil desire, he is dragged away and enticed. Then, after desire has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and sin, when it is full-grown, gives birth to death” ( James 1:15).

The consequences of sin is death.

Consequences of sinful life and the  holy life in Jesus
 brings resurrection from all unrighteousness

Death means both physical death accumulated from our forefather Adam and Eve and our spiritual death eternal separation from God. We are born into this world physically alive but spiritually dead irrespective of our culture, Religions and ethnicity. We are genetically transmitted of the sin nature (rebellion against God) in our cell structure. So mankind is doomed of eternal separation from God. Further continuation of sin in the life of mankind brings destruction, harm, to self and others and complete alienation from the grace of God after death. Thus sin ultimately takes mankind to physical death and spiritual death of spending eternity in the lake of fire.
turning a sinner
Error to the mirror of word of God

So, how attractive and charming the sin may be but the consequences will be death.

The Bible says: “My brothers, if one of you should wander from the truth and someone should bring him back, remember this: Whoever turns a sinner from the error of his way will save him from death and cover over a multitude of sins”(James 5:20).

So dear reader keep away from sin and escape death.
