The Church is Following Failure
Jesus specifically tells us in Mathew 10:28: “And do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Rather fear him who can destroy both soul and body in hell.”
We are continuing in the fear fest called COVID. How many Christians do you know that are asking if we are doing the right thing? How many Christians do you know that are acting afraid? When is the last time you heard a preacher tell you to fear God? If you had a neighbor you feared, and that neighbor had a “No Trespassing” sign in front of their lawn, would you go over there and throw your garbage in their front yard and say you did not have to obey their commandment? Why are Christians violating God’s commandments in their response to COVID? Have Christians even asked if their behavior is in contradiction to God’s commandments?
God commands us to love our neighbor, and many Christians claim they wear masks to prove they love their neighbor, but does that really prove love? If wearing a mask does not protect anyone from viruses, as many mask boxes specifically state and medical studies have shown, how is that love? We do not show God our love by lying to him. So, why do we claim it shows our neighbor love by putting a mask on and lying to all who see us? It does not show love. It shows Christians are lost and need to seek the truth.
We are going on 10 months of the COVID cowards allowing the government to hurt millions of people. Huge numbers of people are hurting. Friends of mine who own restaurants have lost huge amounts of money. Many people have lost their lives to drug overdoses, not getting medical care, and suicide. Yes, there are a huge number of people who have murdered themselves, mistakenly thinking that is a solution.
How many of those Christians putting on their masks, claiming to show love, actually do love those people who are hurting, or who are now dead? Wearing a piece of cloth over your face is a copout. It is a way to do something while doing nothing. When my neighbors are hurting and they call 911, I get in my ambulance and actually go do something. I do not pray that someone else does something, I go do something. I pray for God’s help while I am doing something, but I do something. I think most Christians are subconsciously wearing their masks to cover their faces in shame. The Church has been silent as to the suffering the lockdowns have caused. How many Christians say truth is important?
If we ignore the suffering of all those people, we are not showing the love of Christ. We are not following Jesus. In Mathew 10:32-33, Jesus said, “So everyone who acknowledges me before men, I also will acknowledge before my Father who is in heaven, “but whoever denies me before men, I also will deny before my Father who is in heaven.” If we wear a mask, even if it does not help, and ignore the suffering of all those people, what are we asking God to do to us? If we love our brother, we will help our brother. We will not stand by as the lockdowns destroy their businesses and livelihoods. We acknowledge Jesus by doing the things he told us to do. We acknowledge Jesus by demanding truth and obeying him.
Jesus said in Mathew 12:30, “Whoever is not with me is against me, and whoever does not gather with me scatters.” How many of the mask-wearing Christians are wearing the mask to please the world, but are claiming to wear it to please God? You cannot stand with Jesus by lying to Jesus. If you are afraid to displease the government that ordered you to wear the mask, admit that. Do not make things worse by claiming you do it for Christ. God knows your heart. Jesus stood up for the persecuted and the suffering. You should too. You should be organizing and working to stop these lockdowns that are hurting so many people, and causing so much suffering. Have any of the mask-wearing Christians asked if it hurts children to force children to wear masks?
For those that claim the lockdowns are for our own good and we need to obey because of that, we must remember what Jesus said in Mathew 12:33: “Either make the tree good and its fruit good, or make the tree bad and its fruit bad, for the tree is known by its fruit.” Where is the good fruit of the lockdowns? Increased suicides are not good fruit, increased poverty is not good fruit, increased overdoses are not good fruit, and increased starvation worldwide is not good fruit. Why would anyone claim the government ordering the lockdowns is a good tree, or claim the lockdowns are good fruit? They should not. They should be crying out against them and demanding they stop. They should stand up for the people suffering as Jesus stood up for the persecuted and the suffering.
We also need to speak out against another evil that is occurring in the medical system. The medical system in our country is participating in this evil and is causing evil. Falsifying death certificates is not good fruit, false COVID positives to manipulate the public are not good fruit, being afraid to expose the lies is not good fruit. The medical care in our country is not a good tree. We need to demand truth.
Billions of dollars have been made by the lockdowns and all the deception they have involved. There have never been any tests that have shown how much harm lockdowns can cause or that they stop any harm. The people doing this need to be held accountable for the evil they have done. A lockdown is like taking a sliver out with an ax, you cannot claim it helps your patient. They are your victim, not your patient. Many people are now the victims of our medical system and it needs to stop.
Christians are missing in action and need to start doing something. The passages in Mathew I quoted are where the Pharisees were accusing Jesus of violating God’s laws. Jesus healed a man in Mathew 12:4 and cast a demon out of a man in verse 22. All the good Jesus was doing, the Pharisees called evil. Jesus was teaching us how to know the difference between doing good and doing evil. Christians need to actually evaluate what is being done now. We need to actually do good and demand evil be stopped.
Wearing a mask is a copout, stop being a COVID coward.
