Ask the Pastor 5

Why would a loving God allow the COVID-19?

This is a question that might have crossed everyone’s mind at one time or another, at least briefly. In a previous article we discussed how that calamity is the result of a sin cursed earth, stuff just happens. On the other hand, a more appropriate question might be, why not? Why would a holy and righteous God continue to look away and ignore what is going on in our world and in our country? Just in our country, God’s word and His moral values are ignored and blatantly compromised. We live in what is known as the postmodern world where skepticism is supreme, there are no absolutes and more and more people even deny His very existence. We live in the “day of grace” But, we can surely see how gracious the Lord God has been, especially to this country and what is the response of this country? It has certainly not been one of gratitude and obedience. The Lord God used plagues to teach Pharaoh in Egypt that He is the Lord. Perhaps it is time for this country to get back to its biblical roots and acknowledge that He is the Lord. It may very well be that this virus is just a virus that happened because of a sin cursed earth, nevertheless it may well be a time to think upon spiritual things and to be sure that we are trusting and obedient to the Lord our God, “It is better to trust in the Lord than to put confidence in man.” (Psalm118:8).
