Socialist: Christians Responsible for Spread of the American Coronavirus Pandemic [Road to Hell Paved by Evangelicals]

Craig HueyCurrent Events, Faith, Government5 Comments

Did Christians fuel the COVID-19 pandemic in America?

According to a New York Times op-ed, “The Road to Coronavirus Hell was Paved by Evangelicals,” they did.

Why?

Because Trump surrounds himself with evangelicals and their “anti-science” attitudes.

The article follows the attack Vice President Mike Pence received for praying at the President’s Coronavirus task force meeting. (See the article, “Prayer? Oh No! 4 Things You Should Know About “Prayer Shaming.”) Click here.

According to the article, “Donald Trump rose to power with the determined assistance of a moment that denies science, bashes government and prioritized loyalty over professional expertise. In the current crisis, we are all reaping what that movement has sown… This denial of science and critical thinking among religious ultraconservatives now haunts the America response to the coronavirus crisis.”

Who were the Christians directly responsible for the pandemic? Singled out were:

  • Christians in President Trump’s cabinet – Secretary of Health and Human Services Alex Azar and Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Ben Carson
  • Several pastors who held church services despite the ban on meetings
  • Jerry Fallwell Jr. and Ken Blackwell of the family research council

And associated evangelical Christians with some fringe beliefs for example:

  • Tony Spell, a pastor in Louisiana who said, “We’re also going to pass out anointed handkerchiefs to people who may have a fear, who may have a sickness and we believe that when those anointed handkerchiefs go, that healing virtue is going to go on them as well.”
  • Robert L. Dabney, a pro-slavery theologian of the 19th century

Part of the op-ed attack was based on President Trump saying he wanted to have people get back to work by “Easter.”

According to the op-ed author, this was religious speak. He could have said, by “mid-April” instead of purposely saying the word “Easter.”

Why the reference to Easter? The author’s presumption that it was to please the evangelicals with the vision of packed churches at Easter.

This is hate-mongering, not intelligent disagreement over politics or religion.

You can disagree with Christians. But to blame them for the Coronavirus and not blame the real source – China – is sad and wrong.

My wife Shelly sent out this tweet:

“Haters gonna hate: Matthew 10:22”

In this verse Jesus said, “You will be hated by everyone because of Me, but the one who stands firm to the end will be saved.”

  1. Jesus Christ is the only hope for a sick and dying world, Mat 10:8 And when he had called unto him his twelve disciples, he gave them power against unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to heal all manner of sickness and all manner of disease. Mark 16:18 They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.[ That mean we do not have to fear sickness. we are just up against an evil Demonic people who are trying to destroy the Church and this nation, they trust man and science, but we know the one who created this world, and everything in it, and we do not fear sickness or anything these devils throw our way, John 16:33 I have told you all this so that you may have peace in me. Here on earth you will have many trials and sorrows. But take heart, because I have overcome the world.”2 Tim 1:7 For God hath not given us the spirit of fear, but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind. And we believe what the word of God and Jesus Christ said and our rights to worship have been taken away, for our God talks to us and is alive and well, and as all power in heaven and earth and we do not bow to these devils, whose agenda is far more than this virus, these people kill babies, and any one who wants to kill new born babies, as they tried to pass, is as low as you can get, they want old people killed, and any one who disagrees with them, they are destroying their next generation, with the pushing of same sex marriage and Transgender mutilation, anything that don’t reproduce dies out, therefore killing their own self off, which is crazy but devils usually are, The Lord God Yahweh and his son Jesus Christ has brought this nation through every war, and sickness and depression, everything that has come our way, BECAUSE US CHRISTIANS HAVE PRAYED, while the devils crowd has tried to destroy in every way, they snuck in and contaminated the church, with other Gods, they pushed the power and presence of the true God and his precious Holy Spirit out, so they could move in and make us a worldly church, with out any power, they know they only lost the last election because of the prayers of the Christian people, because they rigged it, and only and supernatural move of a supernatural God could have undone there rigged machines, which I saw come down from heaven, so they know they have to try and stop our meetings, thinking our God only shows up in building’s, but our Lord lives with in us, and as long as we pray he will still move, but they are trying to completely destroy the Christians and using this virus to do it, the arrest a pastor, who has helped the people of this nation in every way, and force him to close his doors, Rodney Howard-Browne, which is un Constitutional violating his rights, doing as they pleased, and the real plan is to destroy the economy the Church and this nation and take over, the only hope for this nation is Jesus Christ and they know it that’s why they are trying to shut the people of God up, our problem is they also took our fight and made most tolerant, and they will not speak out or stand therefore helping the other side win, our God is greater than any virus or sickness or anything, We just need to REPENT AND TURN FROM OUR WICKED WAYS, 2 Cor 7:14, and he will take care of us, we have allowed the shedding of innocent blood, which the word says God hates, Prov. 6:17, and same sex marriage, Lev. 18:22, says is an abomination, and we allow child porn, and all kinds of filth to go on here, and Deu. 28, tells what will happen if we do not obey the word, there are consequences to pay for breaking Gods word and we are paying them right now, and if we do not repent this nation is damned, so they better hope Christians pray and turn things around, or this nation will be destroyed by the people trying to take it over, I mean my God what kind of idiot kills their own children and mutilate and castrate others, and think they have a future generation to go on, when you killed them all, and gave away everything free to all people, it does not take a rocket scientist to know that will destroy any man or nation, so they better hope we pray and let our God save us or we are all destroyed, P. said they can’t afford for the people to decide this election, ding, ding, ding, they tried the Russian thing, they tried impeachment, and scandal, nothing worked, this is the big plan, they are using the virus and the media to cause fear and panic, so shelves will empty in the stores, the people can’t work or pay bills, well pretty soon they will start to lose it, and go cray and riot, and then they call ML, and other take over, and can stop the election in Nov. and America is on its way to complete destruction, they take our guns, our rights, and America is no longer America, and that’s their goal, and they know our prayer can change it, but we must repent for letting evil come into the Church and take it over, and make it about everything but God, 2 Chr. 7:14. SO REPENT CHURCH WHILE WE STILL CAN.

  2. The pastor in Louisiana mentioned in the article sounds like a pagan, not a Christian.
    Going back to work by Easter does not bring up images of packed churches. That’s a dichotomy. And prayer is always one of the best solutions to a problem. Also, science IS Christianity. Who do they think created the world and upholds science with the power of His Word. Of course, this is the N.Y. Times, so I would not expect truth, honesty, facts or news from them. That would be where you turn for your neoMarxist lies about current events.

  3. This is the craziest news of the last days. We need to plead the Blood of Jesus over our President and ,Vice President.Isaiah 54:17.

  4. Why do we even have to respond to this idiocy?? “They” throw out lies and we have to counter them? Why? That would lead to endless back and forth “he said, he said back”. A waste of time and breath. It seems that the New York Times is turning into another “rag” only worth papering the bottom of bird cages.
