Heard of this a lot lately, but had no concrete evidence so I withheld posting.
About to share a word for word post a very, very good friend of ours from church shared on social media. Guarantee this is a true story.
“So we have two friends with 2 daughters. These 2 were hanging with a friend they found out tested positive for COVID, so they were being responsible and went in to be tested themselves. 4 hours later, they hadn’t been seen and went home UNTESTED. The next day they got a phone call about both of them of their POSITIVE TEST! This happened in Naples Fl.”.
We are being played by the authorities. Setting us up for a loss of our liberties. I will not comply.
A lead editorial in the Wall Street Journal reveals the per-capita death rate for the coronavirus is 75% lower in states that did not panic into lockdown mode.

China is not our friend. This is a communist country with domination on the minds of the leaders. Love the people of China, it is too bad they have to live in fear of their lives.
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.
