Like most of you, statistics and opinions regarding COVID-19 have inundated me for weeks now. I am, of course, particularly interested in informed perspectives from a Christian worldview.
Dr. Joe Boot has offered just that. I can hardly find a more-leveled headed diagnosis of our current crisis—both the virus and the world’s response to it—than his.
This may very well be the real manifestation of God’s judgment. Apostate Western nations and powers thrown into confusion of mind and panic over a spook. Christians have a timely opportunity in these days of uncertainty to be courageous and faithful witnesses to the life, hope and freedom that comes only in the gospel of Jesus Christ when people are gripped by fear of the unknown. And we have an obligation to point people to the Word of God and be a voice of calm, sanity and truth, “For God has not given us a spirit of fearfulness, but one of power, love, and sound judgment” (2 Tim. 1:7).
Please read the full article, “COVID Calamity: When the Cure is Worse than the Disease”, then share it with friends.
I learned about this article through a fuller conversation between Dr. Boot and Pastor Jeff Durbin, which is also worth your time: “COVID-19 and The Judgements of God”.
