Christians and COVID-19

Since the coronavirus has been afflicting many people, what is the intelligized Christian response? 

First, did you know that the Biblical law contained rules for responding to disease? The law required the sick to isolate, cover their mouths, and wash themselves and those they touched with running water (read Lev. 13:45-46; Lev. 15:10-13). Those laws helped the nation that followed them. Modern suggestions have not changed much from what God said.

Under Grace and Free from The Law

Every sincere child of God should take to heart the Apostle Paul’s reprimand of the believers at Galatia when he writes: “O foolish Galatians, who hath bewitched you, that ye should not obey (Gk. peitho, rely upon) the truth, before whose eyes Jesus Christ hath been evidently set forth, crucified among you?” (Gal. 3:1). They forgot the truth they had learned from Paul concerning the meaning of the cross-work of Christ on their behalf.

It's Not Enough To Say “I Believe In God”

Some you state this as though it is meritorious. “I believe in God” is quite general and thus can be understood in more ways than one. What do you mean you “believe in God?” The standard way to take that is that you believe God exists. Such a claim is all well and good, and while you are close to the truth, it is too basic and not an adequate basis for faith. Your position is deceptive, as it provides a false sense of security. After all, there are myriads of gods in the world.
