There is a lot of fear and misinformation being promoted about Covid. The Bible, in the book of Proverbs, states:
The first one to plead his case seems right,
Until another comes and cross-examines him. Pr. 18:17, Amp
One of the major problems in this coronavirus situation is that the first side to present their case is using every method possible to prevent their case from being cross-examined. They try to silence all opposing voices, by ignoring them as much as possible in the mainstream media, by eliminating their posts [or even deleting entire pages and channels] in social media or labeling them ‘fake news.’ They slander qualified experts who disagree with them. And more…
These actions in themselves are highly suspicious. The Truth is not afraid to be cross-examined. It is generally the bully, the liar and those who lack confidence in their beliefs who try to violently squash all opposition.
Sadly those who promote extreme measures [i.e., lockdowns] to control Covid often downplay or ignore the collateral damage. Suicides are up. In some places young adults with suicidal thoughts have risen 30%. Child and spousal abuse are up. Substance abuse is up. Some people are either too afraid to go to hospitals for treatment of life-threatening conditions or have their treatments post-posed or refused. Businesses, livelihoods and dreams are in ashes. It is estimated that around the world 150 million people are being driven into extreme poverty because of these measures. People are starving to death because they cannot work. For literally millions of people this is not just an inconvenience, but a matter of life and death.
Probably like most of you, I am not an expert in virology or other medical sciences. We need to look for Truth and not be caught either ignoring the facts or believing everything we hear whether it be from politicians and mainstream media or conspiracy theorists. We need to search for solid reporting based on evidence by qualified people. We need to allow debate and “cross-examination.” That is why below you will find articles or websites with differing viewpoints. We cannot allow ourselves to be driven by fear in our search for Truth… and we need to be suspicious of those who refuse to allow their views to be tested and/or slander those who disagree with them.
Research the articles/websites below and choose wisely. [If you want to see what we have personally written regarding Biblical principles on this subject, check out our Covid Stream.] While we need to be aware of those who "cross-examine" and question the official Covid narrative, we also need to be aware of those who "cross-examine" the cross-examiners. In other words, sometimes those who oppose the current Covid narrative may be basing their ideas on misinformation or false information as well. It is so easy to get caught into fear on the one side or sensationalism on the other side. Two basic facts should not be disputed by any Christian: 1. God is in control. 2. Jesus Christ is Lord. Let us calmly consider the events around us, prayerfully ask for God's direction and walk wisely avoiding extremes, while giving grace to those who disagree with our approach.
