Here’s my two cents worth on the over-extension of economic lockdowns and bizarre justifications for totalitarian Covid-counter measures.
It’s one thing to agree that COVID-19 is a serious crisis. It’s another to follow along blindly, as if that crisis was not being exaggerated by politicians who see a bit of easy power grabbing in it.
The either/or logical fallacy assumes there’s no alternative. In the COVID-19 case, we’re now being told by the WHO, in a significant backflip from their previous up, and down prescriptions, that there is.
1 Corinthians 2:15: ‘The spiritual person judges all things…’
1 Peter 5:8-9: ‘Be sober-minded; be watchful. Your adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour. Resist him, firm in your faith, knowing that the same kinds of suffering are being experienced by your brotherhood throughout the world.’
2 Timothy 1:7: ‘…for God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self-control.’
Romans 8:15: ‘For you did not receive the spirit of slavery to fall back into fear, but you have received the Spirit of adoption as sons, by whom we cry, “Abba! Father!”
Proverbs 4:23: ‘Guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it.’
