Please don’t misunderstand my comment. Our leaders are making difficult decisions in difficult circumstances and we need to pray for them. My comments are more about how people have reacted. How willingly freedoms are being given up just to feel safe.  How many freedoms are people willing to give up in order to feel safe about any national foe, whether COVID-19 or the next threat?
A sense of social responsibility has entered our culture like I have never witnessed. Have you seen mask wearers at the grocery store look condescendingly at the non-mask wearers?  There seems to be a new breed developing of those who choose the good of the collective state and feel a sense of righteousness for their views and choices. If this choice of the collective over individual freedoms continues unstopped, we will be headlong into socialism and not even realize it.

This super social responsibility is fueling a perceived obligation that government is our ONLY provider for safety.  Christians who have a biblical worldview (and many don’t) should question the unchecked willingness of people to obey any authority other than the God of the Bible.

Covid-19

My initial response back at the very beginning of this virus was as it is now.  It is real, but not as contagious or deadly as the MSM or democratic socialist would lead one to believe.  At the start I commented on Facebook and one of my friends from high school yelled at me for my lack of concern and lack of intelligence.  I simply stated that the virus would basically hit the aged and infirm much harder than the general population.  As time has gone on I have been proven right.  We will never know the actual body count that covid-19 has taken.  The virus must be conservative because it is blamed for almost every death.  Remember over 99% over those infected get over it with little or non emergency attention needed.  I speculate that I might have had this virus back in late December.  Terrible cough so bad I would have to get up and walk to catch my breath and a fever for at least a day, possibly more.  No, I didn’t seek medical help, I dislike Doctors very much.  Must be my age and southern farm boy mentality.  Besides the Lord is with me.  Actually didn’t feel all that bad outside of severe cough and fatigue.  Back to my point, we have shut down small businesses that are the cornerstone of our economy. Retirement plans have taken a hit and the free spirit of America is being destroyed little by little.  

 

What to do?  Fight back and resolve to reopen America.  One rebellious act at a time.  Go outside, take your mask off and live free!   Enjoy the sunshine, visit your friends.  America we have been duped!
May the Lord God of heaven and earth keep you safe.  Freedom is not Slavery.
