Things just get stranger as the year goes on. This weekend is the July 4th holiday, celebrating the American Colonies declaring independence from Britain. Their actions acknowledge our Creator, His law, our equal nature, His endowing man with certain natural rights, and government’s purpose in securing those rights.

As mentioned last time, God designated two spheres of power where man exercises dominion, and therefore stewardship. They are religion and governance. We previously focused on today’s governance corruption and failure. But seldom is only one sphere corrupted. Today’s article turns to the church. Not attacking it, but examining where we are versus where we should be. Understanding where correction is needed—and how to go about it.

God designated two spheres of power where man is to exercise dominion. They are God’s through His act of creation and not man’s. He provides their basis so both require stewardship. They are religion and governance. The first teaches people what is right and good. The second enacts justice when someone acts unjustly. Our natural rights to assemble and communicate give us the opportunity to learn and practice doing good as individuals and a society. This occurs through the customs, behavioral expectations and standards we create through our choices.

Today wraps up the discussion about the stewardship we have for relationships, and relating those to current events. Last time we applied our natural rights to procreate and assemble. Today we’ll use the natural rights to communicate and receive justice. These wrap up what it means to be a people which then leads to governance. This last item touches on leadership, the next article’s focus.

We hear this phrase daily from the media, CDC, on the radio, in ads and articles. But what does it really mean? The last several articles looked events around the Coronavirus in relation to the end times. We can use those same events to learn about our responsibility for stewardship and duty. We’ll focus on the relationship aspect first as that is more relevant. Stewardship over things will come later.

Jan Markell recently wrote about the church’s silence regarding current events and the end times. I had to smile as I read it, as I was in the process of putting this article together. She closed with “You can almost hear their hooffbbeats.”

 

I say they are here and have been for some time. The four horsemen mark the beginning of God’s first set of judgments in the book of Revelation. Judgment occurs because of man’s rejecting God’s laws. We have the free will to make that choice, but it comes with consequences.

This article is not about the Chinese people. They are our brothers and sisters in Christ; made in God’s image as we are. It concerns China’s leaders and government. Their ideas result in corrupt immoral actions. Witness their influence in institutions such as the World Health Organization. China’s leaders allowing 9 million Chinese to leave the country when they knew there was a serious health crisis is irresponsible. But these are only the most recent in a long train of abuses. The Chinese people also suffer under their leadership. And yet many in our media advocate on China’s behalf. Obama’s Education Secretary praised their education system saying, “There is much we can learn from them.” Do we really want to model such ungodly immoral behavior? Actions showing a complete lack of love and compassion for our fellow man and God. I think not. But what should we do?

There is reason to hope. The new coronavirus cases for the past seven to ten days remains flat, and several respected doctors say we may be reaching a turning point. We’ll know soon—so long as we don’t lose focus. Even if we’ve reached the peak, there are over 300,000 people who are sick. Some of them will not recover. Our prayers should be with them, their families, and those caring for them.

This article examines the link between leadership and fear, using our reactions to current events. The flu occurs every year, with different strains and virility. Past methods for controlling it include; isolation, quarantine, good hygiene, disinfectants, and restricting public gatherings. These limit transmission. They are common sense and should be voluntarily observed in a free society.

A friend recently sent me a link to a blog article titled This is Worth Reading. I don’t know the person who wrote it, but that doesn’t matter. The post lays out a reasonable line of thought expressed by many liberals today. It also deserves a reasoned response. I’ll attempt to provide one in my own small way, addressed to the original author, whoever it is. While addressed to them, it is not about them. Rather, it is about the ideas they appear to hold.
