Evangelicals must own “the fact” God is ultimately responsible for sending/allowing the Coronavirus (COVID-19). He is sovereign therefore EVERYTHING either comes from Him or is allowed by Him.
What evangelicals think in the privacy of their minds and occasionally spout off in public would shock most people. Because God is sovereign, He is responsible for this pandemic. The question is: Why did he send it?
Evangelicals are delighted to talk about the great things God does but when it comes to earthquakes, tornadoes, famine, disease, hurricanes and other naturally occurring disasters, they get quiet, but not thoughtless.
American exceptionalism is rooted in the conviction God has rewarded (blessed) America because of her faithfulness to His commands (traditional family values). They cannot ignore the tragedy around the world which God oversees and allows.
Hey evangelicals: If God can stop the coronavirus which preys on the most vulnerable of society (children, elderly) or any natural disaster, why doesn’t he? Evangelicals pound their fists about abortion and homosexuality. Why are they suddenly so quiet?
