Most churches are large buildings Ploughboy. I should imagine it wouldn't be too hard to keep distance, in the mean time, there's the internet. Satan won't stop fellowship, we're doing it now.Is it not clear this pandemic is not over, no cure so far, but isolation has slowed it down. Covid 19 is still active.
Well, tell the people in New York with mass graves, the families in Italy, in Spain, and others countries around the world. This virus is not over with yet. Even when they come up with a antidote, it has to be tested for at least a year for side affects that will kill your for every case scenario. Who are we going to believe the common everyday citizen or the "WHO" and the "CDC"! This virus has been contain by "social distancing"! And not by a pill or vaccination. Spreading viruses evolves by developing new condictions in the populous and mutations is obvious. So each time it evolves and mutates then the drawing broad of a antidote most likely have to begin at square one again.
Take note: " but as far as I am concern, take a page out the "Bible": (1 Samuel 8).
Prophecy always comes to pass, in light of motifs.
No matter what happens "God is Sovereign".
I have a lot more to say about "containment", "quarantine" and "sieges" in light of "Holy Scripture" but that is for another day. Christianity is suppose to be a state of denying ones self. So now the institutional church will part of a group of people that reinforce the Covid-19 pandemic? Then people will blame it on the Government, when your love ones start dropping like flies, and when there is no room in the end.
Think about how your post reads Sue D. Thousands of people have died. Rather than show any compassion for the sick and the grieving, you want to make comments about their immigration status, criminal activity, drug and alcohol consumption.The sanctuary cities were Also for illegals coming up from Honduras -- some of those very southern countries -- non-documented people with no medical history -- who knows what shape their immune systems were / are in.
Drug useage -- alcohol consumption would all lead to weakened immune systems. Those people wouldn't care Who they spread Anything to. Very close living conditions in poor areas would breed easy spreading of Anything.
Committing crimes shows a lack of concern for others and the desire to do most anything to get what the person wants.
And it was noticed -- someone on FB had observed that the 'hot spots' for the virus were the sanctuary cities and it spread out from those locations.
your disdain and belittling of other people who think and see things differently from you, has exposed your heart, you might want to get off your soap box, and look in the mirror.I must say this, among these groups of people, some are real "born from above" children of God. And it seems a lot of so called Christians do not care for their true brother and sisters in Christ from all nations" But they are quick to let these words flow from their lips when it meets their selfish desires:
your disdain and belittling of other people who think and see things differently from you, has exposed your heart, you might want to get off your soap box, and look in the mirror.
What kind of heart do you think you have?
I already knows about my heart, to bad many Christians do not believe God's Word about their own, but it seems they believe the opposite. My heart is as the "Holy Scripture" describes below. The Bible exposes my heart, I don't need you sir to describe my heart, I know it is wicked for I do know how to read, "And when the plain sense of scripture, makes common sense, seek no other sense"
The heart is deceitful above all things, And desperately wicked; Who can know it?
New International Version
For out of the heart come evil thoughts--murder, adultery, sexual immorality, theft, false testimony, slander.
New Living Translation
For from the heart come evil thoughts, murder, adultery, all sexual immorality, theft, lying, and slander.
English Standard Version
For out of the heart come evil thoughts, murder, adultery, sexual immorality, theft, false witness, slander.
That's an odd statement. Even with a lockdown there have been nearly 100,000 deaths. Unimaginable the devastation if there hasn't been preventative action.This thread is about opening churches back up. They never should have been closed in the first place. Nothing should have been closed.
If is so amazing to me that many of people have 1st hand information of what is going on in the sciences of "viral diseases". Is not the "CDC" and "The WHO' would be determine as a form of "government" who specializes in this field. But it seems we also have experts here in the the field of "Infectious diseases" here too!The media / Democrats have taken this present 'virus' and blown it totally out of proportion. If 'we' want to take a look at it's origins -- the research lab in China. The conditions in the open-air meat markets in that area. Seems that the communist party in that area saw an opportunity and 'went for it'. Highly political and highly emotionally charged. No one Wants to be sick -- no one Wanted any of the previous flu outbreaks of past years. No one Wants to see people die.
Having Pres. Trump elected has been a thorn in the flesh for the Democrats. And they want that 'thorn' pulled out at Any expense. And That is what's really sickening.
How many groups have 'vowed' to take down this country.
I realize I'm sounding very strong-minded.
This thread is about opening churches back up. They never should have been closed in the first place. Nothing should have been closed.
We are to respect those in authority over us. The pastors / churches that I'm familiar with are doing everything the officials are telling them.
Dave M is right.
