Let COVID reign
To the editor:
Scientists are either evolutionists or creationists, most of whom claim to be the former (even though all the evidence is against them, but then, the majority is often wrong). In the realm of reproduction, Darwin touted natural selection as the driving force for survival of the fittest.
My understanding is that insects, viruses, animals, plants and humans, etc., all live to procreate. If Darwin was correct, I’m wondering why these evolutionists are so concerned about COVID-19. Why not permit the pandemic to do its thing and let the weakest of people perish? The message is confusing.
In fact overpopulation, unsustainable according to experts, has been the world’s top environmental issue since the mid 1960s. I would think evolutionists would welcome this and other pandemics. Should the lesser fit people live? Or should the living include the stronger and more able people?
Still the mandatory lockdowns and social distancing continue. Oh yes, and our country is going up in flames. Looting and disrespect for our heritage including the American flag seem never-ending.
Dear reader, amidst all the chaos, listen for that “still small voice” in 1 Kings 19:12 who spoke to Elijah. God encouraged Elijah to listen to Him who is constantly communicating with his creation. 2 Timothy 4:2 charged believers to “Preach the Word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all long-suffering (patience) and doctrine.”
We are told to be discerning because Satan prowls the earth 24-7. Listen for God. Expect to hear from Him. Guard against being too busy … always be available to serve God. Be in the Word daily. Desire a personal relationship with Jesus Christ which involves being born again.
Besides, in both good and bad times, isn’t that what the born-again Christian should always be doing, i.e., sharing the Gospel?
Also, to those concerned about the unpardonable sin (Mark 3:28-29), which is the only sin that cannot be forgiven, please consider: it is only the continuous, ongoing rejection of the Holy Spirit’s effort to convict you of your need for salvation that won’t be forgiven.
In John 3:5-7 Jesus says “Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.” Water indicates natural birth. Christ’s reply was that regeneration by the Holy Spirit is prerequisite to entering the kingdom of God, thus, “Ye must be born again.”
