  • Coronavirus Pandemic, why does God allow it


    What is the answer for Christians as they see the death and destruction spreading around the world. As looks like this is going to be repeated in the fall, it will become the new normal...

    "The Coronavirus Will Return In The Fall...

    Topline: Dr. Anthony Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, said at a White House press briefing Monday he anticipates the coronavirus will come back in another wave later this year—but added the U.S. will be much better prepared to deal with another outbreak, if it happens, in the fall.
    • Medical experts have been warning the coronavirus could be cyclical, meaning it could come back in the fall even if its spread is halted in the next few months.
    • Fauci said he “anticipates” such an event happening in the U.S. “because of the degree of transmissibility” and the fact that countries in the Southern Hemisphere are seeing more cases as they transition into their winter season.
    • He added an outbreak in the fall would be a “totally different ballgame” because the country’s increased ability to test, identify and isolate those who are infected will be “orders of magnitude better than what it was just a couple of months ago.”
    • Clinical trials are also underway for a number of treatments and Fauci hopes one or more of them will be available
    • Fauci also raised the possibility of a vaccine being available next season under an emergency use “if we start seeing an efficacy signal” in any one of the multiple candidate vaccines.
    • Other medical experts have warned that if there is a dip in cases during the summer months, the U.S. needs to stock up on ventilators and other supplies to handle another wave."...The Coronavirus Will Return In The Fall, Fauci Predicts, But The U.S. Will Be Better Prepared

    Not much for the Christian to do other than continue to trust that God's plan is being worked out.

    If we look to history of things like the Black Plague and Spanish flu, this is not nearly the same scale of mortality, though the spread of the disease is far quicker. We do have superior medical systems now, and cleaner lifestyles and the understanding of how these diseases move which gives us a bit of an advantage.
    Do not say, “Why were the old days better than these?” For it is not wise to ask such questions.
    Ecc 7:10

    John777 exists to me only in quoted form.

      Your caption asks the question, "
      Coronavirus Pandemic, why does God allow it"

      Not only does God allow it, God is the one who brought it upon us.

      We can read hundreds of places where that God has given us clear warning that when the nations turn away from obeying the commandments of God, that he would bring calamity upon the people. He has demonstrated this time after time all throughout the bible. The Lord not only made a covenant with an oath to the people, he also placed a curse upon any who turn against the commandments of God.


      Below is a good example of one of those warnings and confirmed with a covenant and details of the curse. Read it carefully.


      Deuteronomy 29
      12 That thou shouldest enter into covenant with the Lord thy God, and into his oath, which the Lord thy God maketh with thee this day:
      13 That he may establish thee to day for a people unto himself, and that he may be unto thee a God, as he hath said unto thee, and as he hath sworn unto thy fathers, to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob.
      14 Neither with you only do I make this covenant and this oath;
      15 But with him that standeth here with us this day before the Lord our God, and also with him that is not here with us this day:
      16 (For ye know how we have dwelt in the land of Egypt; and how we came through the nations which ye passed by;
      17 And ye have seen their abominations, and their idols, wood and stone, silver and gold, which were among them
      18 Lest there should be among you man, or woman, or family, or tribe, whose heart turneth away this day from the Lord our God, to go and serve the gods of these nations; lest there should be among you a root that beareth gall and wormwood;
      19 And it come to pass, when he heareth the words of this curse, that he bless himself in his heart, saying, I shall have peace, though I walk in the imagination of mine heart, to add drunkenness to thirst:
      20
      The Lord will not spare him, but then the anger of the Lord and his jealousy shall smoke against that man, and all the curses that are written in this book shall lie upon him, and the Lord shall blot out his name from under heaven.



      One thing about God, he does not lie.

        How would you read this...
        Psalm 78:49-51 King James Version (KJV)
        49 He cast upon them the fierceness of his anger, wrath, and indignation, and trouble, by sending evil angels among them.

        50 He made a way to his anger; he spared not their soul from death, but gave their life over to the pestilence;

          The same way I read the passage below. God will send them strong delusion to believe a lie because they receive not the love of the truth.

          2 Thessalonians 2
          10 And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.
          11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:
          12 That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

            We just got a very troubling call, and the people of my wife's neighborhood off Jamaica Bay NY, (its basically a island where everyone knows everyone), decided they were going to hold the St. Patrick's day celebrations. Now, those that went to it are getting sick, and some have died already. We just went there in Feb and now are checking the friends and family we just saw....
