A Christian response to Corona Virus and other diseases. (updated 4/22/2021)
A lot has changed since I first put this page together. I have even had my only personal experience with it as well having overcome a bad case of it in February 2021 by following by the Lord’s mercy and following sound medical practices. We know much more about SARS-CoV-2 and recognize that the panic, paranoia and draconian government restrictions have been unnecessary and extremely destructive. The second wave of infections was not unexpected given the nature of any contagious disease and the fact that government restrictions have aggravated the situation. It is also not unexpected that the disease would begin to wane as Spring comes – as with cold and flu in any year. Our response to this particular disease, as with all diseases, is to take proper and reasonable precautions, trust God and live for His glory. This includes assisting those who may become sick or quarantined.
I am extremely disturbed by how much the major news media, social media and search engines block any contrary evidence to the politically (socialist) correct view. They claim they are following “science,” but they are not, for science is not afraid of contrary evidence. True science goes forward as all the evidence is brought to bear. Below I have been posting links to contrary evidence. I recognize some of it will be confusing because information available is incomplete and therefore is subject to continuing change (so note the dates of reports). However, the contrary evidence does prove that the data used for the models upon which government restrictions have been set were flawed from the start. If they were following science, that would be admitted and protocols would be changed accordingly.
My own back ground is biology including classes covering epidemiology and experimental design, and I am married to a public health nurse. I must be direct. The virus is not nearly as deadly as government incompetence and over reaction due to media hype. Gov. Cuomo’s directive in early 2020 putting COVID-19 positive patients into nursing facilities caring for the elderly and those already medical compromised was unconscionable. Government incompetence in New York, around our nation, and internationally about what is or is not “essential” destroyed much more than economies. That incompetence, whether well intended or malicious, is directly linked to lives lost due to drug abuse, alcoholism, depression, suicide, and postponed “elective” surgeries that would have otherwise extended life. Even worse has been the blockage in many States of the very medications that were either already known or were quickly demonstrated to alleviate COVID-19 symptoms and prevent death if administered early. They have been following modeling that was disproved by late Spring 2020. Their claims of following “science” have been blatantly false. Mainstream news reports block counter evidence to the politically correct line while hyping and faking the stories they do report. These reasons in and of themselves are enough to give serious pause to trusting these governments and media about anything related to the vaccines, and indeed, research into them raises serious medical questions as shown in this link to Public Information Regarding the Vaccines for Covid 19.
Pray for those who are being so severely impacted by all of this not only locally but around the globe where similar actions are now leading directly to starvation. Pray for those in authority that they will repent and turn to truth to end the unnecessary oppression. The power of the Lord Jesus Christ gives hope to people in any situation, so pray that God’s people will continue to find ways to proclaim the gospel even when oppressed.
