When someon are saying "I know that the Lord is coming back soon...", you are spreading misinformation wouldn't you say ?

In any case, a statement like that is belitteling to others. Its insulting to the vast majority's intelligence.

But hey, go ahead and pray, do whatever you can to summon the lord, coz he'll surely come back to save just your butt?

Dont you understand, telling ppl to pray, and not wash hands, is not going to help anybody?


Um...

I'm not a Christian.

I am what you would consider a pagan if you want to put me in a box... my belief system is Hopi.

As for the rest of your post, thank you for clarifying.

Turns out that the reason you feel you HAVE to belittle others because of thier particular religious belief isn't complicated at all.

It is not belittling or insulting others' intelligence in
warning them about the near future.Now,show me where
I told people to pray and not wash their hands?

I think it will be a wake up call and will motivate a few. Unfortunately, I am seeing larger numbers of those that are displaying an unrealistic over reaction or those that are not preparing at all.

It doesn't matter if the masses are brought to their knees from a virus of the body or a virus of the mind. Either way we are all negatively impacted as the result of either.

Not if this forum is any type of indicator...

We have members that personally know casualties of this virus in the usa and people still laugh it off.

No. No one will learn anything from this that they didn't already know.

Heads will just be buried deeper.


I am willing to bet we have many more members who have casualties from violent crime, auto deaths, cancer, regular seasonal flu etc. What's your point?

2019 - 2020 Flu season
49 million cases
620,000 hospitalizations
52,000 deaths
Nationwide.

Divide those by 4 and compare to the Corona Virus , as it is 1Q in.

Ohh please tell, i wanna know.

There is a difference being spiritual vs religious. People can believe whatever they want, i dont care.
But posting false claims is just misleading, and counter intuitive.

War. That's the first and last reason for what's going on.

Another thing to think about,closing everything down
causing the economy to tank during an election year...
I know they will blame Trump for everything.

People can laugh it off all they want. The economic impact from this will be felt by EVERYONE. Our economy is all linked.. If the airlines/hotel industry suffer, sports suffer, energy, etc.. This all trickles down and trickles down rapidly. There will be a snap back to reality when things start to get back to normal, but people need to be economically prepared unless they are independently wealthy, have a ton of $$ in the bank or have a trust fund.


My daughter is in the heart of this epidemic( Greater Seattle area). She's quite trouble; the consensus there seems to be most think it's great; they're looking forward to two months free rent and government amenities.

The big cities seem ready for socialism. As an at-risk senior, I'd rather not live to see America become socialist. I don't think whatever few years/months I may have left are worth tanking the country's economy, either.

Old lady from the woods here. I have to laugh at what some people will allow to be done to their food because of what they have been led to believe their food is suppose to look like.

Naturally grown food may not be the shape or the color that they sell in the markets, but they usually are better tasting, and when you are eating for sustenance, you are not looking for picture perfect products.

Even the eggs our chickens lay, aren't all the same size or color, but they taste just the same. Country folk don't throw away much. Almost all of my scraps go into the compost.

All you are doing is adding to the noise, you aren't gonna change anybody's mind and her beliefs are hers they aren't hurting anybody

Yes this place is littered with misinformation and false claims if you call every one of them out you are gonna be a busy person so why call out someone's faith when it might be what holds them together. Especially in a time like this...

I don't think people can be reminded of this too often.

Once I found those numbers for the Flu , I have no concept.
For the first part , the CDC had declared that a "moderate" year.
As I stated before , we are being conditioned to accept the next steps.
That is all I can figure .
Watch the days to come.

There is , but not in the way most think...

Didn't you post this: "I know that the Lord is coming back soon..."

So when will the Lord be back?

Maybe reading some history of the mentioned religion could set things in a little perspective, instead of blind belief in old books.
Start with Martin Luther:
en.wikipedia.org...

The reason i post this, is because i know people in my area, that thinks believing in a deity, and praying, is going to save them. So they dont care about the ministry of health's warnings, going about spreading this COVID further.

peace
