Beginning in March of 2020, American citizens were given a series of instructions based upon the Coronavirus Task Force. These medical experts urged people to stay home to stop the spread of COVID-19. This was followed by wearing masks whenever you go, staying six feet apart, and don’t go to work if you have any initial signs of a cold. By the end of 2020, Covid-19 vaccines were made available for essential workers. Despite this progress, Democrats were skeptical of Operation Warp Speed run by President Trump that resulted in the creation of 3 different vaccines. It wasn’t until President Biden’s inauguration in January of 2021 where vaccinations went from optional, to highly recommended to mandatory.
Let each one [give] as he has made up his own mind and purposed in his heart, not reluctantly or sorrowfully or under compulsion, for God loves (He [b]takes pleasure in, prizes above other things, and is unwilling to abandon or to do without) a cheerful (joyous, “prompt to do it”) giver [whose heart is in his giving], 2 Corinthians 9:7.
Without considering any biblical implications yet, you have to understand the mind of a politician. As the Democratic party leaders lean further and further to the left each year, there is a mastermind who has a playbook to follow. Rules for Radicals by Saul Alinsky offers a strategy to gradually shape opinions toward your point of view. This book introduced the concept “never let a crisis go to waste.” If you look back to Democratic led areas, state of emergencies were created and extended month after month. Local businesses were forced to comply with these mandates or else face heavy fines. Meanwhile, many of the creators of these new policies followed the principle, “do what I say, not as I do.”
Who has measured the waters in the hollow of his hand, marked off the heavens with a [nine-inch] span, enclosed the dust of the earth in a measure, and weighed the mountains in scales and the hills in a balance? 13 Who has directed the Spirit of the Lord, or as His counselor has taught Him? – Isaiah 40:12-13
The cure for the Coronavirus began with follow the science. While this may have been true initially, doctors, medical experts, and scientists who deviated from political talking points began to become banned, removed or silenced by social media sites. Subsequently, follow the science was replaced by if you don’t get vaccinated you are going to kill other people. This mantra was repeated over and over again as a way to bully those on the fence into submission. While health, personal, and religious exceptions were initially promised, businesses and states are now firing anyone who hasn’t complied. This decision has left countless skilled workers without a job. Only God knows what the future holds, but if you follow the science, herd immunity and those with the antibodies following their recovery, likely won’t need the annual booster shots that the vaccinated now need to take.
