someone on the caldwell fb page called them out with the stay home order being old testament and equated it with theHebrew's being told to stay in, blood on the door posts so the plague would pass. it was interesting
no response from pastor caldwell, of course
name removed because i don't know how to black out a poster's name
"Having known several who have had the virus and people who have had loved ones die, I have mixed emotions. Mind you, I said emotions NOT allegiance. I believe Jesus is in control, I also believe He told the Hebrews to stay inside and apply the Blood to their door posts and pray while plague passed over and people who did not obey paid a price for it. I also believe that God expects us to use good sense. If people would follow the guidelines this will resolve quicker. I dont pretend to know what God's plan is in all of this with any certainty, but I do know He has a plan. My husband is immunosuppressed and we habe to thus be extra careful of this stuff. I dont think that is a lack of faith. We listen to the officials and we respect and pray for our fellow man. I have faith that God can maintain our Constitutional rights and restore the economy just as much as He can do anything else. This cant go on forever of course, it is uncomfortable and all of the mental health issues mentioned are real, we see it every day. People need God more than they need money and comfort. Many are finding Him that never slowed down long enough to hear Him calling them to Himself. It isnt all bad, families are rediscovering one another. Couples are renewing their relationships. There is good and bad to consider. But to say oh well it wont kill ME is selfishness and insensitive. We all can make it through this together with God's help. I want it over too!"
