    An Individual in Upstate NY has come down with the virus.
    He has continue to do his regular activities including coaching
    a youth football league and his work at a local Baptist church.

    Now, I am no fan of masks - but this individual (Adult #1) refuses
    to wear a mask even though he has tested positive. According to
    a local radio talk show host this Baptist church refuses to let
    authorities know his whereabouts for the past
    two weeks.

    Yes - once positive - stay HOME!

    Note: Prospect is about 60 kilometers East of Syracuse, NY

    indeed, even some Christians are going too far, but I think that John MacArthur is right on this

    We decided our church will not turn over any attendance records if asked to.

    I read the link and I want to make some observations.

    It doesn’t say adult 1 has tested positive for Covid. It says someone at the health dept “heard” he had symptoms. Now, I might have missed it in the reading, but I didn’t see anything about him actually testing positive for Covid.

    It says they have nine positive cases, up from three cases earlier. No one from this “outbreak” is hospitalized or dead.

    At some point, we are going to have to come to terms with the reality that this virus a 99% plus survival rate for almost everyone. The elderly at risk, and those with chronic health problems.

    We will never get our lives back if we continue to respond as if this virus is far more lethal than it is.

    peace to you

    I was also taking some info from the radio talk show host - that probably was more on top of the issue that I was.

    The more I see the response from liberals, the more (really don't how I can be MORE, as I'm already 100% :Whistling ) I'm convinced this "pandemic" is POLITICAL. The left is playing this to try to convince folks that Trump is botching/ignoring the virus and hopefully let them (DEMS) regain control of the gov't.

    I saw, or heard on radio, a health official in Cal say that schools couldn’t re-open until after the election.

    That is a health official directly linking response to this virus to politics.

    peace to you

    Will it be safe for children to walk to school through all of the "peaceful" protesters rioting and looting?

    The number of cases in Europe is increasing and restrictions are tightening. The World Bank approved aid of $ 12 billion (about € 10.2 billion) to ensure rapid access to vaccines that are still under development.
    Portugal in a state of calamity. Government wants mandatory masks on the street, and limits gatherings to five people.
    Portugal em calamidade. Governo quer máscaras obrigatórias na rua e limita ajuntamentos a cinco pessoas

    The Christians believers must be focused in the signs about END of the world and return of the Lord JESUS Christ. Soon we will enter in the period known as the last week-Dan.9:v.27-. Remember : The Word is God, so what is written will fulfil LITERALLY.

    Matthew 24:v.1-8

    Jesus went out, and departed from the temple: and his disciples came to him for to shew him the buildings of the temple.

    2 And Jesus said unto them, See ye not all these things? verily I say unto you, There shall not be left here one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down. (This prophecy fulfilled LITERALLY in the year 70AD, and Israel was banned from their land in accord Deuteronomy 28:v.15-68).

    3 And as JESUS sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming? And of the END of the world?

    4 And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you.

    5 For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many. (Soon will manifest the false messiah, a false lamb, AN IMPOSTER, as said JESUS -John 5:v.43 combined with Revelation 13:v.11).

    6 And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.

    7 For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. (Will be G7, and G20, and EU, and UNO, among others Entities, DISSOLVED from now on? Day after day, the happenings of the World will run in this way.) But,

    8 All these are the beginning of sorrows.
