RE: Editorial: Is COVID-19 a hoax? Who do you believe? Who do you trust?

I read your recent article about COVID-19, and I must admit it is the first time I’ve come across your writings or your website. But I must say, I find it to be quite telling in your “who do we trust?” list that you didn’t place God or Christ at the top of your list—or anywhere on it for that matter.

I also find it ironic that you talk against the quarrels of our brothers in Christ over this topic, and yet you very clearly speak your mind and choose a side.

I would have preferred greatly to read something along the lines of: “We must unite as brothers in Christ and not quarrel with one another as the rest of the world sees fit to do. We must not trust in any man alone but trust in the Lord. We must trust that our God, in all things, even this, has the control in his hands and that no problem here in this world is too great for him.”

I think it’s a shame such an opportunity for real Christian counsel was squandered.

May the Lord bless you and yours.
