Corona Perspective

By: Roy Williams

Life has always been fragile and now with the corona pandemic at hand many don’t know where to turn. Sometimes life seems to spin out of control.

As we find ourselves in this situation it may be a good idea to put things in perspective. Here are some numbers I think we should all think about.

In the Untied States heart disease caused 647,457 deaths last year. Cancer is running a close second taking 599,108 lives. Unintentional injuries or accidents claimed another 169,936 and chronic lower respiratory disease 160,201. Stroke is next with 146,383; Alzheimer’s disease 121,404; and diabetes comes in seventh at 83,564 deaths. That’s close to 2 million deaths and did anyone call a state of emergency, open more hospital rooms, or demand financial relief?

As of the writing of this newsletter, the coronavirus may have caused just over 3,400 deaths world-wide. Just as we were experiencing the best economy in U.S. history, this virus appears; and our leaders have all but shut down our economy.

The 2018-2019 flu killed just over 35 thousand in the U.S. and no one stopped working, except those infected. In other years, as many as 60 thousand have died from flu. The economy wasn’t even noticeably affected. What makes this virus different you might ask?

The news media seems infected with a sense of gloom and doom with reported expectations of millions of infections and hundreds of thousands of deaths. Is this virus that much more dangerous than the others? Is it that much more contagious? Does it have a much higher kill rate than the more common flu viruses?

Is America on the verge of spending us into a financial abyss? The Bible teaches us that the borrower is slave to the lender. Is that where we are headed? Are we going to spend our children and grandchildren into bankruptcy?

If everything continues in the direction we are headed, sending all Americans money, lending money to all businesses to pay for employees that are not allowed to work, providing free health care, how long can we remain a free nation? Remember the bailouts for corporations that were, “too big to fail?” That is a drop in the ocean compared to what they are purposing to do by shutting down the economy not only in the U.S. but every nation on earth.

Could this be a sneaky way to take control of all nations and put the whole world in bondage? Are we on the verge of the biggest Ponzi scheme ever perpetrated on humankind? Or, are we about to have a world financial reset?

Nothing about this whole thing makes any sense to me. All other flus ran their cycle and in many cases, such as the Spanish flu, killing millions worldwide. Yes, that would be a huge devastating disaster, and we should do what ever we can to stop that from happening.

These are the real questions: Is driving our nation and most nations of the world into bondage to a few powerful money lenders the right answer? Is selling our freedoms for a sense of security really worth such an enormous price? Remember what most politicians say about disasters, “We should never let a crisis go to waste.”

The truth is, we should have faith in our Creator. The world has been through many plagues and seems to always come out on the other side even stronger than before. The human immune system has overcome much more dangerous and challenging situations than this one, and it will overcome this one as well.

Its time to remember who is really in control. For years I have been asking, “Are we going to do it man’s way using his concoctions or God’s way using His creations?” Man hasn’t found a single cure for any disease in over 60 years. Are we willing to give up our very freedoms for a promise of security?

Remember, anyone who is willing to give up his or her freedom for security does not deserve either. It is time for all of us to accept responsibility for our own health and stop the dependency on the medical profession to solve our problems.
