More thoughts on the Communist Virus
As we are working through our response to the novel coronavirus, but when this is all over China needs to face some serious repercussions. The Communist government not only allowed this virus to spread, but they actively covered it up and silenced doctors and others who warned about it. That is why we need to call COVID 19 the "Chinese virus" or the "Wuhan virus." We need to continually remind the world of the Communist government's culpability in this pandemic.
And no, it is not "racist" to hold the Communist regime accountable for their despicable actions. This genocidal regime murdered 60 million dead under Mao and has been brutally repressing the Chinese people for generations. If anything is "racist" against Chinese people, it is running interference for the Communist butchers oppressing them and trying to silence critics of the Communists.
As has been the case in many scandals before it, the Wuhan virus teaches us that a cover-up always makes things worse for you. The Communist government of China lied about COVID 19 and silenced those warning about it to save face. Now the embarrassment is much worse than it would have been had the Communists been honest from day one, plus we have a deadly global pandemic.
Also, following up on my previous post: We know from Scripture that, cosmically speaking, all causes of death (viruses and heart disease and cancer, plus everything else) are a judgment of God. The reason we die is because we have sinned. The wages of sin is death. The novel coronavirus is a part of that general curse.
Furthermore, now that it may be necessary to engage in some deficit spending to lessen the effects of the recession caused by "stay in place" orders to slow the spread of the novel coronavirus, maybe we should not have been so totally fiscally irresponsible for the last twenty years, under Bush, Obama and Trump? The reason you do not max out the credit card in good times is because you may need to use it later. Great job, everyone in Washington.
Finally, here is some encouragement from Scripture:
II Chronicles 7:13-14
If I shut up heaven that there be no rain, or if I command the locusts to devour the land, or if I send pestilence among my people; If My people, which are called by My name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.
Let us repent and ask God for deliverance.
