A Blindspot in Western Christianity?

I will not be speaking of a major correction in one particular stream of Christianity but rather an urgent Biblical insight lacking in virtually all forms of Western Christianity.
One reason for a correction is that our theological structure of interpretation of the meaning of the Biblical witness took place centuries before we had any inkling of the dark intelligence invested in the micro world of disease germs, and our current theological sensitivities have, amazingly, not yet adjusted to this new information.
We do not commonly attribute the origin of destructive germs to an intelligent evil being. We have no theology of mission for destroying such germs!
