Churches Aren’t Avoiding Death By Keeping Doors Closed. They’re Ensuring It

Source: Churches Aren’t Avoiding Death By Keeping Doors Closed. They’re Ensuring It

This is the drum I have been beating ever since this COVID nonsense shut the doors of my church. We preach “have no fear” yet we cower in fear as if we really do not believe what we preach. Over 365 times the Bible encourages us not to fear, once for every day of the year. Do we not trust God to protect us from unseen dangers? Do we fear man more than God? I am ashamed that my church has succumbed to fear of sickness, death, and fear of man. I fully agree with the message in this article. Enough is enough!

    Great idea. Ej

    We opened our church with social distancing and all the precautions, BUT!
    We have had 3 of our people die from it. 4 in hospital, but now out. And now our pastor, his wife, and his secretary have it. All our staff was exposed at a staff meeting. My next door neighbor has it. Enough is enough. BUT, it is real. I am older and am taking every precaution I can. Yes, the Lord IS IN CONTROL!

    • I completely understand. COVID-19 is real, it’s bad, and it can kill, but so can the flu and any number of other ailments. I am also in that “high-risk” category now that I have attained to my threescore and ten years. Thank the Lord that He has blessed me with good health all my life, and I am strong for my advanced years. However, I do not consider myself to be exempt from possible infection, but my life is in God’s hands — I am all His. If he chooses to call me home by COVID, or by heart attack, or by any other means, I am secure in knowing that I will be in His presence, and what could be better than that! I will certainly not succumb to fear of a virus that by all statistics that I have seen has a lower death rate than the common flu and any number of other sicknesses. People who are high-risk should take proper precautions, but we cannot and should not close the doors of our churches over this.
